Drove here for 40 minutes from Ithaca on a Saturday lunch with my friends. The exterior of the restaurant gave me a very good first impression, especially the entrance and we got the outdoor seats. The staffs were effectively fast response and super friendly also they gave us a heads up that the offered menu is authentic Austrian food which was why we went to Dano's in the first place! The foods were all delicious, I ordered the Wiener Schnitzel – the taste was super clean and the hint of salt on top of the crunch enhanced the flavor even more. My side dishes were Spätzle, a small noodle with eggs which was okay so I saved it with a bit of salt and pepper, and seasonal veggies to supply my daily intake of vegetables. The vibe was super nice as we could see the beautiful Seneca Lake from the outdoor :-)
This was our first time here as we were on vacation and it was a true experience. The food was extremely fresh and made as ordered. The waiter we had was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and beverage pairings. All of the dishes were bursting with authentic and complex flavors that built with each layer. The farmers plate came with a mustard on the side that is made in house, the waiter explained that you only received a small amount by design as it packs a punch, 100% on point! Not that it was spicy, but that with its profile you really only needed a dab. We also ordered the wienerschnitzel, it came out perfectly seasoned, the meat was tender, and breading crisp. For dessert we had the apple strudel, it was flakey and delicious. We will most certainly return when we're in the area again!
Our schedule didn't allow us to get to Dano's for a while and we are so happy to make it there tonight. The authentic Austrian food is expertly prepared and very approachable to all palates. Our server Ryan was entertaining and spot on with recommendations. From the Austrian spreads to the entrees and desserts everything was superb!
The beef goulash is some of the best you'll find in America. The Hungarian sausage and various spreads we're great appetizers. We got the goulash and wiener schnitzel and could not have been happier. Philip was a great server too!
Amazing. The mashed potatoes are otherworldly. Don't sleep on them. Drop all your plans just to go get them. The schnitzel, red cabbage, and everything else is amazing. But it pales in comparison to those mashed potatoes. Oh my god, just thinking about them. I need them right now.
