About Edelweiss Restaurant
For over 40 years this family-owned German Restaurant on the south side of Colorado Springs has served over a million happy customers. The restaurant invites guests to dine in one of its several rooms decorated with artifacts from Europe. With strolling musicians on Friday and Saturday nights, three blazing fireplaces in winter, and an authentic "Biergarten" in summer, you are sure to enter into another world as a guest at Edelweiss. The authentic menu with a variety of Old World German dishes includes Schnitzel, Bratwurst, and Sauerbraten, with newer-age items such as Flammekuchen and Maultaschen. For those not so adventurous palates Edelweiss offers other Continental fare such as Chicken Cordon Bleu, Filet Tournedos, or Fresh Salmon Filet. Imported German Beers and Wines can be ordered to compliment any of the flavorful dishes. The European-trained Swiss Pastry Chef bakes all of the desserts from scratch, so save room for one of the rich Tortes or pastries, or take some to go.
The food was very good and reasonably priced. The waitress was helpful and friendly; very hospitable! Only comment was that the black Forest Cherry cake was a disappointment. Other desserts were fine!
Ein sehr schoenes Restaurant. Ganz wie "zu Hause" :-) A note for the German Servers (we all couldn't figure out how to translate ...): In Deutschland sagen wir fuer " ... to go box": Koennen Sie es mir bitte einpacken, ich wuerde das gerne mitnehmen?" Oder: "Koennten Sie den Rest bitte einpacken?"
Very courteous and professional.
We had a wonderful meal, the food was delicious and the waiter was extremely polite and helpful!! Thank you for a great evening!!
We had a very enjoyable evening. Wonderful food!
This is the second time we have eaten here and loved it both times!! The food is amazing, love sitting outside, will go back again.
Great food and service!
I have been coming here with my grandparents, who are from Germany, since I was little. I now get take my kids and husband here. We try to come at least a few times a year and every time is perfect!
One of my favorite restaurants if not my favorite!
Great atmosphere as always, the food was tasty though a bit under seasoned. Great selection of native German dishes and dessert, though a bit overpriced. The Edelweiss remains my favorite and most authentic German restaurant in Colorado!
This restaurant is really great and authentic! The service was friendly and enthusiastic. Will come back anytime I’m through Colorado Springs area!
Loved the food and atmosphere!
You are now among our favorite restaurants!!
The parking situation was confusing.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience. The food was great and so was the service! At one point we noticed we hadn't gotten our food yet, and as soon as we said something to the waiter, he went to figure it out. He was very apologetic and did everything he could to make sure we were happy. The food was more than worth the wait, and we will happily visit again when we are in town!! I also loved the accordion player!
Amazing beer and good just like I grew up with.
Our server did a good job. Professional to a “T” and much appreciated. But she was not personable at all. Something I’ve found typical of foreigners coming to this country. Having worked in hospitality for 40 years, I know how important it is to be personable. She came across as quite robotic, lacking any measure of enthusiasm. Someone other than myself might not have been as inclined as I to ask for what I needed or press her about what vegetables, precisely, were the “seasonal” vegetables being served that evening. But in America, we appreciate hospitality, friendliness, engaging. In my opinion, a server ought to be able to read her guests to determine if such engaging is called for. I wish her well. We come to this restaurant almost every time that my mum comes to visit. She is German. The food is excellent. Especially enjoyed Susan, accordionist. She was extremely engaging and gracious. I would come often if eating out often were in my budget.
ja das Essen war sehr gut und die Kellnerin war sehr nett aber da waren Kinder dort Haufen Kinder dort und die waren sehr laut so die Atmosphäre war nicht so besonders aber trotzdem wir lieben euch sowieso danke vielmals
The server we got was great but I did make a reservation and put in a request for the best table. When we got there they tried seating us in a family dining room with zero ambiance and even after looking at my reservation had no care to seat us at an even remotely good table. We had to request to be moved outside where at least we could get some ambiance and hopefully a better table. The rest of the experience was good but that set the tone for the evening and it wasn’t a good one. We made the best of it but why ask if there are any special requests or anything if you’re not going to care anyway?
Our server Stephanie, was amazing and really took care of us. We always love the food and environment.
Best German food around!
Everything about this restaurant is fantastic. Will definitely be back.
Our server, Coby, was delightful. The food, as always, delicious. My husband loves the Warsteiner beer on tap. One of our favorite restaurants!
It was a perfect evening sitting on the beautiful patio enjoying great food and friends!
We had a wonderful time. My husband and I actually sang with the accordion player as she strolled by! This is the type of food I grew up on. We will definitely be back. We live in Pueblo, but the trip was very short. You should advertise here more!
