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

Rated 5 out of 5 by Having just returned from Germany, I can honestly say that this was the most delicious and authentic German meal we've ever had in the US. Everyone in our group agreed: we can't wait to return! Oct 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delicious food, good service, and a charming outdoor patio. Aug 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by We were visiting DC and are trying to eat a different type of ethnic food each night. Cafe Berlin by far has been my favorite. The service was fantastic, the food delicious with many different options to choose from. We ordered these huge beers that were excellent. If your eating inside the restaurant gets a little cold so bring a jacket. We ate there in July. Jul 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by We enjoyed the outdoor seating. It was a beautiful day. Jul 24, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Food as always amazing but out server was not good, he rarely checked on us, forgot to bring drinks we ordered and made sure to remind us that the tip was not included in the voucher. He seemed new so we are hoping next time we go he might be gone, maybe summer staff. Jul 21, 2014
