The only reason for one star would be because of the service though even there a big boner, in my opinion, took place. It was a small thing, but expensive, as Allen ordered a coke which came in a, maybe, 8 ounce glass and was filled with ice, costing $2. Later the server asked if he would like a refill and he said yes and she did, filling the glass with as much ice, again, as she could get into the glass. When we got the bill there was a charge for $4. I inquired about it and was told that they charge for refills and that it was in the menu. When was the last time, in a so called 'better' restaurant, have they charged you for refills for a coke or did you even bother to look at the menu regarding same? By the way I wasn't charged for a refill of coffee.
That was sort of the sugar substitute on a tofu dessert as the meal itself from beginning to end was bad with the sliced bread being stale, the Wiener Schnitzel was so dry that I felt I was eating cardboard, the red cabbage was room temperature though Allen's potato salad was good. I know because I ate it.
For a lunch that cost $26.40 it was very disappointing. Even more disappointing was that the Old Heidelberg restaurant was one of those reliable places. Maybe, just maybe, charging $4 for 6 ounces of cola really annoyed me more than I thought it did!

    It was a good restaurant for so many years and all restaurants can have an off day so I haven't marked it off my list but Allen won't order a soda again! :O)
