Loved the spaetzle and smoked carrots to share, and particularly liked the pork schnitzel and chicken appetizers. And the donuts for dessert were a perfect ending! Service was impeccable all around. Only negative was it was a bit loud, music was at a high level so it was a bit hard to hear the conversation at times.

I understand being short staffed or maybe a mix up of whose table we were but to not have anyone even acknowledge us was really disappointing, we were looking forward to dining here but unfortunately had to leave and get food somewhere else.

I went here for my birthday dinner with a group of friends. The plates were very easy to share and all were packed with amazing flavor. The ribs? Life changing. The schnitzel? Authentic as the ones you get in Vienna. The sauerkraut? Need to steal that secret recipe asap. The Piggy Pitcher cocktails? Bottoms up. I can't wait to go back.

Their ability to adapt the menu to the season and maintain staple items is unmatched. I have never had a bad meal or bad service. Funkenhausen continues to sit at the top of my list for favorite places to dine in Chicago and I will continue to recommend it to anyone that will listen.

The ladies behind the bar were so knowlegable in their recommendations and personable. Eating at the bar was better than I expected. Comfortable bar chairs and space to eat. It was restaurant week and the choices were great. I had crusty walleye and it melted in my mouth.

My fiancé and I sat a high top in the bar area and received excelled service from not 1, but 3 of the waitstaff working. The food came out quickly and was better than I remembered. The standouts were the wood fired carrots and the steak. I don’t think I’ve EVER seen a carrot dish be the star of the show, but man it sure was here. Overall, fantastic atmosphere, service and food. My fiancé and I already cannot wait to return.

The restaurant is gorgeous, makes excellent use of socially distanced space, and the banquet seating is comfortable. With those accolades, the quality of the food was exceeded! Exceptional courses across the board! My celebration coincided with restaurant week, so my dining companions and I were able to indulge in many delicious offerings. Will definitely head back!

The staff is very tentative and bring food out at a pretty good pace—not too fast but not too slow. We came here for restaurant week and had the idea for one of us to order from the restaurant week menu and the other from the regular menu. What an experience! My favorite food menu items were the carpaccio and the kasespaetzle. The carpaccio was well seasoned and had a hint of spice! The lamb was very tender as well! The kasespaetzle was a really pleasant surprise, as I’ve never had this before. Luxuriously cheesy without being drowned in cheese. My partner really enjoyed the beer bratwurst. Their caramelized onions are delicious and such a nice contrast to the stone ground mustard and brats. We recommend eating here for great food and equally pleasant staff!

Our server was very friendly and accommodating for our young kids. The atmosphere was awesome-the restaurant is very clean and modern, with lots of fun & thoughtful decor. Most importantly, the food was amazing (mmm the ribs!) and they provide a fun and interesting beer selection.
