We've been going to Matterhorn
We've been going to Matterhorn for years now. My daughter loves spending her birthday there, and we always have a fantastic time. And it's fun eating fondue. She's now 25 and still enjoys spending her birthday with them. The owner is super friendly and accommodating, they recommend the portions required for your group so you don't over-order. It's a LOT of food. The cheeses are all amazing. The chocolate fondue - YUM, but their other desserts are also delicious. Just a great place to be.

My boyfriend is Swiss, so
My boyfriend is Swiss, so this was a logical choice for his birthday. I made a reservation, and amended it to add that it was his birthday and that he was Swiss. I figured since the owner's citizenship is on the site for the restaurant they'd love to know a fellow countryman was there. I do wish that the host or the waitress would have extended that extra level of service and wished him a Happy Birthday. I wasn't looking for freebies. We didn't spent that much.
That lack of attention to detail in that area was the only negative. The fondue was great. He was thrilled to see traditional dishes listed first. It was nice to see him happy and going on about a dish he'd grown up with. We enjoyed the meal and were nice and stuffed when we lef

We had dinner here to celebrate
We had dinner here to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We ate here on our honeymoon originally. The food was really good. Very traditional Fondue. I wish there was a little more variety to the menu and wine list, but the food was great. The thinly cut beef that you fondue in the broth was excellent. It cooked up quickly and was very tender. There was also many sauces and extras to dip in addition to the beef. We'll go back in 10 more years!

Our fondue dinner was very fun and very tasty. Lots of variety. The salad they brought first was delightful - unusual yummy dressing. The wine list provided plenty of good choices. Service was great - and helpful.

Very pleasant experience with great food and warm, friendly hostess and wait people. Fondue is a simple presentation often done at home, but the cheese, herbs and garlic make this place's version special.

A San Francisco Classic
Without a doubt one of San Francisco's hidden gems. There is no better communal dining experience than fondu and Matterhorn is the best you'll find. Add to that a killer bar and wine list and you've got a great dining experience. One of our favorite places to take out of town guests and to host group events.

Never a disappointment
I have been dining at the Matterhorn for many years...always bring different groups of friends to experience this authentic Swiss fondue restaurant. The owner is quite friendly and always stops by the table to say hello. The fondue is excellent...several varieties of cheese are available and the sides are perfect combinations. Salad is always fresh and the desserts and delectable.

I keep going back!
This is my fourth trip to the Matterhorn and absolutely love it. Their cheese fondue is a menu in itself. I tend to go between 5:30 and 7:00 pm to stay away from the crowd. Service is excellent and always the same staff. Comfy booths and tables. Extensive wine list and beer on tap.

Sad to see there were not many people in the restaurant, very good fondue

Best Fondue in SF
The Melting Pot is a joke compared to the Fondue at The Matterhorn. I have been coming to this resturant for a decade with my family and its the only place we go to for Fondue unless we make it at home (we are swiss)

Great place to go!!
My girlfriend and I were looking for local restaurants to have lunch or dinner, we went elsewhere for lunch but were intrigued that there was a nice fondue restaurant and decided to make reservations for dinner. For a Friday early evening (645pm),it was relatively open seating. The service was great, the food was even better! We are vegetarian and they still had a good selection of vegetables to dip in the fondue. If you eat meat, you can cook your own steak or chicken right at your table!! The only downside for me was the tap beer selection; there was two Swiss beers (both of which I've never had and they were still tasty)but I would have liked to see a better selection of other craft beers, even if they were all Swiss beer. Great overall!

Always a pleasure!
We treat ourselves to the Matterhorn every so often and they always do a great job, make us feel welcome and the food remains outstanding.

A Family Tradition
Every August, our Granddaughter and family visits us. She loves fondue, and the Matterhorn does fondue best, so we always go there for dinner on the last evening.of their visit. Of course we also visit for a treat at other times, too.

Fun for fondue fans
If you like fondue, this is absolutley the place to go. The atmosphere is quaint Swiss, the service is excellent, and both the meat and cheese fondue superb. The desserts are also excellent.
If you get there early -- generally before 6:30, there is a more wide ranging Swiss menu available. My wife really enjoys that -- but I generally stick with the cheese fondue (and, yes, you can get fondue for one person).

great fondue in a charming setting
Matterhorn is a gem. very few Swiss (or German) restaurants in the City these days. Matterhorn is terrific.
mushroom soup was delicious, the cheese fondue was wonderful and the swiss white wine the perfect compliment to the meal.
we normally eat close to the Opera/Symphony, but Matterhorn isn't far away on Van Ness, and it's perfect for after
a matinee performance!

Cozy Swiss Lodge
We love the Matterhorn! Excellent food, charming atmosphere almost as if you've been transported to a alpine ski lodge. The owner is always there and so accommodating. Big bonus is the valet parking.

Good for small groups
The Matterhorn is a great choice for a gathering with friends. The food is perfect and the place is very comfortable. I recommend to all my friends - even the most picky ones. They won't be disappointed.

Whenever I have a hankering for good fondue, this is my "go to" place. The fondue is always high quality, the setting very comfortable and the service friendly.
