Cafe Berlin has been serving traditional cuisine on Capitol Hill since 1985. It occupies the ground floor of three joined townhouses whose front yards serve as patios for outdoor dining in warm weather. The interior features a small bar and two decorated dining rooms. Walking distance from Union Station and the Capitol, it draws politicians, congressional staffers, and tourists as well as a loyal following of neighborhood residents. The chefs at Cafe Berlin are German, as are the owners, so the traditional dishes are authentically prepared but with a lighter touch. Changing seasonal menus feature fresh asparagus in the spring, Bavarian dishes during Oktoberfest, and wild game in the winter. Desserts are made in-house, and the extensive repertoire includes apple strudel, black forest cake, and luscious cream tortes. The bar offers a selection of imported German beers and wines as well as cocktails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible service; we were so well-taken care of despite one member in our party being 30 minutes late, and one being a toddler. Jan 28, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Service was excellent. Servers are a young group of individuals that are polite and move quite quickly. The food was good, remember, German food is "heavy." We enjoyed our New Year's celebration (early on for our age group) and was surprised by how many were taking dinner there. Jan 1, 2015
