Beautiful sunny day to sit outside! The service was really slow and they brought out the food in a very disorderly fashion. We got the potato pancakes, bratwurst and the Benedict. Everything was really flavorful and good but really small portions for the value. Good beers on tap but would not go back.

Took my husband here for his birthday, as he is a huge fan of German food and beer. He loved it! Our server was super friendly and knowledgeable. The views are beautiful and the atmosphere has a good vibe. There were both large and small parties, everything from people with kids to a lively group celebrating a birthday. Would definitely go again and bring some friends along.

We made a reservation and still had to wait 40 minutes to be seated. Then we ordered (8 of us) and every person’s food came out in ~20 minute increments... they also served our appetizers last. Food was pretty subpar. Cute place but probably won’t go back.

Grabbed a cocktail next door at Interval before. Had noted in my OpenTable reservation that it was my partner's bday. The hostess lit up upon check-in and wished him a happy birthday. Really sweet lady. Sat us at the best seat in the house. Food was excellent and waitress was really kind.

I celebrated my birthday there and was very thrilled and happy with our server Missy (I think that was her name). She was very accommodating, helpful, and very kind. I would recommend her for any large party.

The only reason why I did not provide all 5 stars was because when the host on that day made an accommodation for us, he was extremely vocal to let us know that he was not happy to do it and allowed his body language to communicate same. That was very disappointing and put a damper on an otherwise perfect experience. After hearing his comments and seeing how he engaged with us, it was very difficult to let that go.

Otherwise, we are locals and live in the area. We love your venue, food, drink, ambiance and your staff is really great (Sean too). Thank you for having us!

Not wild about this place. I like the idea but didn't like the quality nor the taste of the food. The pork knuckle is nothing like what you would get in Germany. It looked and tasted like it was deep fried instead of being roasted. Split peas are not something that you'd be getting it served with normally. The potato pancakes were served luke-warm/cold. The Schnitzel didn't have much Schnitzel-taste either and were served with boiled (?) potatoes. You normally get it with roasted/fried potatoes.

If you don't mind the lack of German-ness of the food, if you don't mind paying >=$10 for 0.5l beer and you don't care about being able to have a conversation because it's ridiculously loud, then Radhaus is the place to go.

Our second visit to Radhaus included dinner and we had high expectations after our first visit (during which we had just beers and one order of Obatzda). Unfortunately the food did not meet our expectations.
The Obatzda we had during this visit was very different from the first time we were there back in November 2018. Lack of onions changed the taste so significantly that it shouldn't be called Obatzda any more. When questioning the waitress she explained that the chef in the kitchen changed some time in December.
The red cabbage (side dish to Sauerbraten) was not seasoned at all and was not really eatable. The meat of the Sauerbraten was so-so but not quite 'sour' enough.
The meat of the Schweinshaxe was acceptable and tasty, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Conclusion: if you are interested in good German beers - this is a good place for you. If you are interested in good German food - we can't recommend this place.

$10 beers and $5 for bread & butter, SF has a lot of wealthy young people and I am not one of them, I thought it had a fun vibe and love the location but it was way too loud to have dinner with friends and have a conversation.

The tables were too small for our party of 6 and we kept having to give plates to the servers to make room. Service was friendly and attentive. The food was not very good at all and the bill was high when we all left without really feeling like we’d had lunch. A few plates of food I saw coming from the kitchen looked nicer then what we ordered, so I gave 2 stars instead of 1. The shared boards of meat and fish were terrible. The soup and salad we ordered were just okay. Overall it was disappointing.

Although cool and scenic, this is not yet up to the standard of other great German restaurants in San Francisco. The salad was large and fresh, but extremely overdressed, in a heavy creamy sauce, although the menu specified "cider dressing". One of our entrees was served quickly, but the other never came at all (we had to ask for it twice, and were told after 45 minutes that they had run out... could we choose something else?). The Wießwurst was too sweet, almost like venison, and the pretzel was hard. BUT! the soups were hearty and excellent. So far, we would only go back for the soup and the delicious, creamy Lebkuchen soda (gingerbread flavored) - but ask for it without ice.

Strange menu for lunch. Not many plates for satisfying and filling meal other than sausage and carbs. Ordering two plates may be best option but makes meal too expensive for a casual lunch. I suspect business plan is based on selling alcohol rather than food.

I’d heard of Radhaus but didn’t have a reason to venture to Fort Mason until my birthday. Sarah called to confirm my reservation and she was so genuinely friendly. My large party arrived and they were so accommodating! A friend of mine brought a birthday cake for me and they hid it through dinner, brought it out after we ate, and cut + served it to us. Service was great and friendly. We had a great experience and I’ll definitely be back!

Most of the food was excellent except the bratwurst which looked like two skinny hot dogs that had just been heated up. They were lukewarm and not tasty. But everything else was great especially the half hen and dumplings.

All in all, a fairly mediocre meal. The pretzel was dry and burned and the schnitzel has no flavor and was very heavy. I recently returned from a week long trip toGermany so perhaps my expectations were too high.

This was our monthly friends dinner and my turn to choose the restaurant. I’ve been craving German food and beer. I was told this was a newish German restaurant and wanted to try it. Boy, was I happy to have tried it. It’s pretty good food. We had the Obatzda, Brussels sprout salad, roasted carrots, Wiener schnitzel and kasespatzle. Everything g was done family style and we loved the food. It wasn’t thoroughly authentic German but did hit the spot. I had the dunkel and that also tasted pretty good.

We love Radhaus! The venue is beautiful (rare to find such high ceilings and space in SF!), it's in a great location, the beers are delicious, and the food is yummy too. The major plus is Radhaus' willingness to host big groups -- please never change that!

Only request would be to have the dinner items available earlier in the day (there aren't as many options for vegetarians otherwise).

Love this spot!

Love this place! Open, airy modern bar and eating area. We had the a great twist on schnitzel... lemony and light, a vinegar-based, delicious potato salad, bratwurst, fries and perfect chicken, dumplings & Brussels sprouts. All of the dishes were delicious. Great service. Beautiful setting overlooking the water in Ft Mason. Great for groups, guests or something new in SF.

A bit of a disappointment. We were expecting the food and fun of Suppenkuche. We got there and they were out of most of their entrees at 5:30. We ended up with a mostly vegetarian German meal. Not sure I’d recommend it. Suppenkuche is much better.

I love Suppenküche- it’s one of my favorite places on the planet. The Radhaus soace and location is perfect. The food though was a bit disappointing. The sides were quite good but the schnitzel was sinewy and oily. The pretzels were sub par- I think that they chose these wrong dough. No one in our group thought the food was great, but had avoid time anyway. Milk a was a terrific server.
