I cannot agree with the complaints about the service at all!! With us they were super- nice! My girlfriend had birthday and they did a special plate with creme brulee and raspberry sorbet with a " Herzliche Glückwünsche" inscription on the plate in chocolate! The Scholle was classic! No complaints. However this was off-season (late November) But then, one bad waiter/waitress (who is not here anymore obviously) does not make a bad restaurant. I recommend highly for a nice, quiet traditional Hamburg-style evening!!!
