Leopold's Gasthaus is a restaurant serving Bavarian cuisine in San Francisco, California. Guests will find that Leopold's offers the same warm and cozy ambiance that one might find in any traditional gasthaus in northern Italy, Austria or Bavaria. Handmade pine booths and a central communal dining table fill the homey space, as paintings and pictures of old-world European life decorate the walls. The food at Leopold's is simple and rustic, but brings a depth of flavor that belies its seemingly humble ingredients. We are a small neighborhood restaurant who will except walk-ins and also add to our wait list if reservations are full.

The place had such a nice ambience and feel, and we were surprised with ourselves for not discovering this place earlier. That, and their beer is the main draw. Food is quite good, but not exceptional. People are really nice, and it's a great place to have a good chilling time.

It can get very loud on Friday and Sat evenings, so we avoid then. The food is good and fresh. The staff is always efficient and friendly. Good beer selection and they even have a good IPA finally. Go!

Went for dinner: Weinerschnitzel moist with nice crust; Tagliatelle with chicken delicious in velvet sauce. The apfelstudel was a little rubbery, but ok. Went on a Sunday night and it was busy and loud (in a good way) by 8 pm. Highly recommend!

Food was good-tasty and substantial-and service was very friendly. Food is typical German/east European, so it is full and hearty rather than elegant and fresh in California style. But for when you have that craving this is one of the few places in SF to satisfy it.

Lost a little bit of its energy since I last went there, but it's hard to beat for German/Austrian/Hungarian fare. Having grown up in Germany all of my life, along with Suppenkueche, Leopolds is one of the truly best restaurants in the country for this cuisine.

The taste of the food is lacking. We brought some German friends and a surprise to give them a bit of home fare in SF. We were all quite disappointed in the appetizers and entries. It's an American twist on German food. The space is nice and friendly so I would only return for the atmosphere.

The friendliness, ambiance, decor and food quality is exactly right. The beer selections are excellent. They consistently deliver a great dining experience. I always look forward to going there and they always deliver.

Authentic Austrian cuisine complete with Oompa-pa music. The Jaegerschnitzel is my favorite but I must admit all other dishes look amazing too! The Mac n Cheese dish will knock your sox off made with real cheese and portioned large enough for the table to share! When you need an authentic Salzburg Steigl Beir, this is the place in San Francisco! Tasty, memorable and you will leave full!

The food wasn’t prepared the same, had to ask the kitchen to finish making the food, was charged for items from another table, and was mislead about the price of our beer. Waiter didn’t seem interested in correcting issues. Felt like we were at a large chain restaurant. Wouldn’t recommend, or return.

And no one asked us if we needed more refills even though our glasses were empty. Every time we’d try to flag someone down, they’d just pass us by. We left very thirsty.
