I‘ve been frequenting Radhaus since it opened. Some magic happened recently, the food was even more delicious this time! Danke und bis demnächst!

Good food, service either bothers you to order more or ignores you. They have cutlery on the tables but no one checked so we had to keep asking for forks. And knives. And sugar. And a spoon.

I had an outstanding bowl with kasha, greens, and an egg for breakfast. Great for GF folks!

It was quiet at 11 a.m., just as I prefer it.

Yes..with hesitation...my husband had the chi burger which was great..I had the dumplings which tasted like leftover mashed potatoes and not seasoned very well either..there were a few bits of bacon in the dumpling..as I have lived in Germany these dumplings were nothing like what I remember from over there.
The beer was great

There was a lot of confusion when we arrived because we had made a reservation but there was no one at the host stand and we waited for several minutes with no one from the staff addressing us. Even though we saw several of them pass us and see us standing there. I finally went up to the bar to ask if there was a host that night or we should just seat ourselves. He said there was and they would be there shortly. Finally someone came over to chat with us and they were very accomodating since it had been indicated that we were to be sat by the door (which was open on a cold SF night, great for ventilation, bad if you have to dine next to it) and they gave us a different table. When we sat down several people came over to take drink and food orders but it was unclear whether we had 1 server or everyone was chipping in. There was some confusion about having apps come out before mains and the apps came out then several minutes later our server (I think?) came over to ask if she should have the kitchen make the mains. I figured it had already been done. Its not often you have to specify to your server the order of food. There were 4 of us and 2 of us were served our mains, then the 3rd person, then our 4th just waited and waited. It got to the point where we had to ask if it was coming and the server indicated that, that particular item (Jager Schnitzel) takes a bit longer. That wasn't communicated at the time of order and if she knew that shouldn't she have submitted it before the other mains so it could come out at relatively the same time as the other mains? I mean everyone has off nights, I will chock this experience up to that and give them a second chance but it was a real bummer as the place came highly recommended. Next time I'll likely skip the reservation and head straight to the bar for service.

I loved this restaurant but I wouldn't say it was a 5 star experience. The service took a bit long and it was jam packed with people. I liked the menu but I had no idea what I was ordering. I got lucky when I took the waitress's recommendation and got the Wiener Schnitzel entree.

Radhaus' primary allure is its location. It's located in a chic repurposed warehouse; a beautiful space to visit. The food is good, the portions can be small (at least smaller than one might expect of a German restaurant serving sausages, potatoes, and sauerkraut), and the room loud. Price was what one would expect from a waterside restaurant in San Francisco. For ambiance, address and convenience to other Northside attractions I would give Radhaus a conditional recommendation. If you are in the market for hearty German food and beer in a fest hall environment? I might suggest looking elsewhere.

Love this place, the food and service is great, but sadly it’s gotten too expensive for a family night out or everyday dining.

I get it, SF is expensive now but $350 for four adults and two kids is pretty steep.

So lovely! The space is very nice and open with great views of the water. The food is awesome, lots of pescatarian options. Loved the fish board, and spaetzle was so good. It’s just very loud and hard to hear each other talk.

Overall great experience. We had some issues with the order, but it did not make a big difference. The staff is nice, food good as always. Beers are nice but not cold enough ( probably you have some space for improvement in that area). Other than that, awesome spot.

Great concept, food, and beer. The noise level, however is so intrusive.

Unless restricted by their lease, the owners should invest in some sound deadening material. And I’m not sensitive to loud, but this was off the charts.

We were missing the rhubarb sauce on our potato pancakes, they also were served cold. On a positive note, the beet cured salmon was fantastic.
My guests did enjoy their split pea stew and the bratwurst, they were very tasty.
Another sour note was that I didn’t receive my cocktail until I had almost finished my meal.

Excellent location on Fort Mason pier with views of a marina and the Golden Gate bridge. Plenty of parking outside, and right on bike/walking path from Marina Green, Crissy Field. Service is very friendly and professional. Decent size menu with tasty snacks, salads and mains. Large beer menu, good cocktails and wines. We enjoyed the cheese spread with pretzel, wiener schnitzel, kasespatzle and chocolate chip cookies.

This was our first visit to Radhaus, and we were very pleased. (Two of us lived in Germany for several years, so we can be picky.)
Three of us shared 3 "smaller" dishes, and we were very happy with both quality and quantity.
We did find the space very loud, apparently by design, as there are a lot of hard surfaces along with the high ceiling. The three of us were fine, but I won't come with a party larger than four, because it would be too hard to talk.

The hostess/waitress disappeared after lunch was served. We were having a work lunch so it would have been nice to refill iced tea and get the check. Also, my kielbasa was dry and I would have changed my order, had she checked to see if it was satisfactory. I was excited about the place and would not recommend it.

The restaurant’s setting is ideal for a relaxed celebration with friends and family. This was our second time there and the food was even better than before. Plus, we do appreciate a chef that takes the time to develop the perfect cookie recipe!
