Good authentic food in a bright energetic atmosphere. Watch the sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge and enjoy the weinersnitzel.

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.

I made a reservation and we were greeted promptly by our server and were allowed to choose which table. The location is ideal, quick and cheap parking and a beautiful view out the side windows out onto the bay, the docks and the bridge. A waitress came and took our drink order and poof, she was gone for fifteen minutes, the place is open and bright and she was walking around doing, well, seemingly nothing. It was seven o'clock on a Wednesday so it really wasn't busy and she only have a few people seated at her tables and she neglected them as well. The other waitress was busily running about and interacting with her tables but ours was AWOL. When we finally placed our order, it came quickly, but not by our waitress, it was brought by someone from the kitchen and it was delicious. We saw our waitress walking around aimlessly but she never asked how our meal was or if we needed anything, the other waitress, actually brought us water. So, she finally shows up at the table when we have been finished for awhile to bring us our bill. Never asked if we wanted anything else to drink or eat etc. To say she was inattentive to kind. She was VACANT. The thing is, the rest of the staff were so nice and outgoing and her lack of attention or even just simply doing her job left us rather annoyed. The food is great, the drinks are delicious I just suggest that if you have a choice of sitting in the section where the blonde waitress with glasses is working do it, DO not sit in the section with the long haired blonde waitress without glasses roams around aimlessly looking bored beyond belief, it will just make the dining experience unpleasant and this place deserves to be enjoyed.

While the restaurant itself has a nice ambiance it is super expensive for what it is in terms of its food. Weirdly you can’t really see out the windows because they’re above I level. It feels like an example of many new San Francisco restaurants. Chic but no soul to it’s food or the overall experience.

My husband and I love this place. The food is amazing and the beer is some of the best beer I have ever had outside of Germany/Austria. We come here as often as we can and bring our friends and family.
