We went for brunch. The place is beautiful : bright, nice view, high ceilings... unfortunately the choice and quality of food is nothing to write about. They should make an effort to improve the quality of food.

Great view, awesome ambiance, and a lot of seating which is good for groups but the food was just fine. I would go back for beer and a snack or a group get together but not for a hearty, memorable meal.

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.

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.

Radhaus was a huge disappointment. Took my mom and dad for my dad’s bday and the restaurant said they had something planned for his birthday. Nothing happened - lol. The food came out rushed - we had like 6 huge plates on our table at the same time - starters + mains. Lettuce in salad was browned and old. Schnitzel was overbreaded and greasy. Bratwurst is better at a Giants game by a landslide. Beer was fine, space was cool, service was OK. Def not going back

The location is lovely and they've done a nice job with the space - a big beer hall with clean white tile. Bring a jacket, though, it's cold and airy inside. We liked the concept, but the execution was a little tough on the night we went. They have a great beer and wine selection, but the German authenticity kind of stops there. Brotzeit Teller and roasted brussels sprouts felt much more Californian in flavor profile than German. And the schnitzel (which is characteristically light and lemony as a point of pride in Germany) was heavy, overly crusted, lacking any acid at all, and served curiously on a bed of whole roasted oily sunchokes lacking flavor. We couldn't take more than a few bites. My dining companion was still a bit hungry and asked for dessert... which they don't have at all. I thought that was extremely odd. So we had a bit more Grüner Veltliner and left slightly unsatisfied.

Radhaus was a last minute reservation for brunch with my family, including an infant and toddler. The service was very welcoming and accommodating our need for a high chair. The waiters were friendly and engaging.

The food was fantastic, my father , husband and brother-in-law had the pretzel Eggs Benedict and everyone was pleased with their choice - the sauerkraut was an especially tasty twist. Our party also ordered the chicken schnitzel sandwich and the brussel sprout salad which were both sincerely enjoyed.

The beer selection was wide enough that everyone found something they liked. Even the kombucha was more than quaffable.

Radhaus hinted at being a great discovery for German food and beer. Unfortunately, the menu was so limited for lunch that each of the three of us had a different item and that was about all that was available(except for the Schnitzel Sandwich). The turkey on the toast was covered in a sludge of gravy, nasty. The Currywurst was nothing like anything I have ever had in Germany, and I lived there for years, also nasty, and the hamburger, while tasty enough, wasn't exactly German food. The real German street food is not a hamburger but a Donner or a Currywurst with real curry sprinkled on top. Not a hint of sauerkraut anywhere. We all agreed, it isn't a place to return to. There were many young people there at lunch, so perhaps they were happier.

Radhaus was a delightful experience. the restaurant space is very contempoary with high cealings, stylish bar and a unique selection of German cuisine . The owner greeted me warmly at the door and the waitstaff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The Chicken Schnitzel was generous, and very tasty. My colleagues had a selection of craft beers. My only negative comment was when we were there, they had run out of potato salad. A bummer for a German restaurant. We were there for lunch and I look forward to a dinner, with many of the dishes listed on the menu.

Were very surprised to find absolutely zero ambience in this warehouse setting. Since it is October, expected to find Oktoberfest theme, or at least German decor representing the season. Also noise level precluded any sort of conversation.
Menu was extremely limited for lunch service. Very few options. Look at menu before going to be sure there is something on it that you would be satisfied with for lunch. Full menu service begins at 5 PM.
But, food we chose was excellent and the service was friendly and prompt. Probably won’t make the effort to return as we expected more German ambience in a restaurant named Radhaus.

beautiful location - but the service was extremely slow - even after several pleas for at least one appetizer to be served - also this is not a gluten-free friendly spot - if they could just have a few more gluten-free options it would rate much higher for me

Still - the waiter was very friendly - she tried her best - and the food, once it arrived was very, very delicious.

We really enjoyed the food--especially the chicken and dumplings, which were very tender and flavorful, the bratwurst, the ribs and the brussel sprout salad. Great selection of good beer and unusual spirits. I recommend that a serving utensil should be supplied with each shared dish, though. It's a bit awkward to try to serve yourself with table forks and knives. View and ambiance are great, although it is very loud.

Not only were were extremely disappointed by the quality of the food - greasy, fatty, burned and overwhelmingly large, our server was super rude when we informed her that she forgot my dish, which took another 10 minutes to prepare and left the rest of my party feeling strange about waiting or not waiting for me to eat. It was awful and we'll never return.

It was so loud, my dinner partner and I sat at the tables outside. We could not hear the waitress when she spoke to us.
Having lived in CH and DE, both countries that favor sausages, the food was mediocre at best and overpriced. If we had been able to enjoy the view of the bay then the food costs would make more sense but not when you are stuck outside looking at a parking lot.
