Any restaurant recs in Berlin?

We'll be in Berlin for five days next month and I'd love to take some restaurant recommendations with me. We're pretty open to type of food and generally like casual to mid-scale places. Maybe one upscale place for a nice, last-night dinner. We've always had good luck wandering around and trying places that look local and busy.
We'll be staying near the Brandenburg Gate and will generally be in the centre of the city with a side trip to Potsdam.
Recs?

We stayed near Brandenbeeg Gate too at the Aslon. Our hotel concierge recommended Restaurant Aigner and we were very pleased with our meals. We aren’t big fans of German food but the food there was prepared ina lighter way.

Depending on when you go to Berlin, you can sit outside under the porticos at Aigner. We walked there easily.

We're going in early October so hopefully the weather will be nice enough. Traveling at that time of year is hard when it comes to packing, though. Will it be hot? Cold? Rainy? I know...layers, right?

I had breakfast at the rooftop restaurant of Bundestag https://www.feinkost-kaefer.de/berlin .
It was a two-for-one visit. The restaurant is inside the Bundestag secure zone. In fact the entrance to the restaurant on the same level as the entrance to the Bundestag dome. I arrived little earlier than the restaurant reservation time. I went through the security check, and did the dome audio visit. By the time I reached the bottom of the dome at the end of the visit, it was 9 am breakfast time at the Kaefer restaurant.
