    We had a reservation but the restaurant was closed or a private event when we arrived so we had to figure out somewhere else to go. I’m not sure why they were accepting reservations since they were closed. I still want to check out this place, but this was a disappointing experience.

    I am going to marry their giant pretzel. Also, the best burger I’ve had in Washington in 11 years. And that’s basically all I eat, soooo yeah great place!

    We ate at Rhein Haus for my son’s birthday. The food was great! We definitely over-ordered, but it was just as good to take home the extras. The warm German chocolate cake was a complete show-stopper. I don’t normally like German Chocolate cake, but my son insisted I try a bit. I’m so glad he did because it was amazing!

    1.) set reservation well in advance for 11 people. Arrived, they were only ready for 8, and we had to wait for people to leave nearby table that fit 11+ people so we could sit together. 2.) So many menu items were unavailable: 3.) Cheesy Spatzle was bland, and only a couple bites taken. 4.) Veggiewurst was not good, could not eat. 5.) waiter assumed we weren’t there for dinner, and was shocked when we said we were ready to order. 6.) It was sweltering, no cross breeze or fan. Mirror wall reflected west sunlight and blinded entire party Of people. It was hot, bright, and unpleasant. We had to ask host to lower some Of the curtains twice because of the blinding light. Overall, they weren’t prepared for us, they were aloof, had limited item availability, and were not very customer oriented. It was not a great experience, and I’m disappointed that i selected this location to celebrate my mother’s birthday. We were used to the Tacoma Rhein Haus, which was always an amazing experience.

    My family came to Rhein Haus on a Sunday afternoon following my German mother's memorial. It was her wish that we all celebrate together at a nice, German restaurant. She would have loved the food and seeing us all together. My favorite was the Bratwurst. We were a party of 10 and sat very comfortably in the fireplace room which looks like a Bavarian hunting lodge. I can't wait to come back in the winter when there's a crackling fire in the huge fireplace. Billy was very friendly and helpful answering my endless questions in the days leading up to our reservation. He greeted me always with big smile. Eli made sure the service was exceptional. Both he and Billy were compassionate and offered condolences for our dear Mutti's passing. It all made for a very special occasion.

    Wished we had known that most of the menu wasn't available until after 4:00, but our brats and beers were great. Service was excellent. I was expecting a German pub/restaurant based on the website, but it's more of a college-area bar.

    The TVs were REALLY loud because it was NFL Draft night. I was a disappointed that I made the effort to make a reservation for 2 and they did not put us in the quieter area that looked like it had tables available. My husband and I could not have a conversation over the TV noise. But the place is AMAZING! The building is huge & beautiful. Food was very good.

    It's an order off your cell phone using the QR code and entering in your credit card for payment. Your order is then sent off to the bar and/or the kitchen. When ready, it's delivered to your table. So don't expect the typical restaurant service experience that you would tip 18-20% on. You can customize the tip percentage to a dollar amount you are more comfortable with for the service received. We did enjoy the pretzel, beer cheese dip, stew, brisket sliders and dark beer. We were inside so it was nice to be by ourselves as everyone was out on the patio.

    You will have no service in this restaurant. All done electronically, even water. $4 sodas. The waitress didn't even check our food and the person doing water threw the carafe into our table twice. I am shocked at the lack of care in this restaurant.

    The restaurant was closed when we arrived due to the heat. We were not able to modify/cancel our reservation and therefore could not book someplace else on Open Table. It appears that there was no way the restaurants could indicate they were closed.

    Menu has changed as well as each dish preparation. The spatzle is now an Asian/German fusion. Ugh. The schnitzel was overcooked and did not have the sweet/savory interplay as in the past. Both had WAY too much pepper. The “service” is minimal. You are shown to your table, order from your phone, someone brings you your food, and you pay on your phone. They NEVER check on you during the meal. If you need something, you have to go try to find someone. From these two short interactions, they want a minimum tip of 18%! This place used to have great German food with excellent service. Now it has neither. It’s a shame.
