Great food, drink and atmosphere

This was our third visit, the food was excellent as usual. Good variety of german beers on tap. Service was a little slower than we would have liked, but we enjoyed the company at atmosphere. Despite looking small on the outside, there are three separate dining rooms to break up the crowd of people. Excellent German cuisine. We'll be back, for certain.

One of the few places in the bay area to get German food. Outdoor seating, just like in Germany.

Authentic, terrific food, and generous portions. Mixed salad is an excellent accompaniment to various dishes. Been there many times, never disappointed!

Happy environment and good food. Very friendly service. It's a great place for adult gathering with great beer. It was a nice family dinner but the kid wasn't being patient.

Sadly, they were out of pretzels, but the spätzle and schnitzel we had were fabulous!

Our table was ready for us when we arrived. The food was outstanding, as always. Our server was very good. Checked on us often, but not intrusive. This is one of our favorite family go to places.

My friend invited me the first time I came for the live music, which I really enjoyed.
I invited my two friends, because they are fans and we ordered light meals, which were
served with friendly servers.
We got a table reservation on line so it was ready when we got there.
We had a great time.

My husband and I enjoy trying any German restaurant we come across. Based on reviews, we were very excited to try Speisekammer!
We started with their Potato Pancakes and Pretzel with Beer Cheese dipping sauce. Both were enjoyable but definitely not the best we’ve eaten in our experiences at other German establishments. The Potato Pancakes were light and crispy but with little seasoning/flavor. The Pretzel was very chewy in a stale sort of way...however the delicious Beer Cheese dipping sauce masked that nicely.
For our entrees, my husband enjoyed the Sauerbraten. It was a decent amount of meat with a luscious gravy and classic sides of Spatzle and Red Cabbage. Both sides were mediocre. I ordered their baked Spatzle (think of a German take on Mac N Cheese.) They used rich and decadent cheeses and came nice and hot. I was given the option to add ham or bacon for an additional charge and I chose ham. Nice and necessary addition! Also for an additional charge, you can have their side salad - I highly recommend AGAINST this...chopped lettuce, pickled veggies all drenched in what tasted like the pickling vinegar. Waste.
Drinks. Although they had many options for many patrons (children, non alcoholic, wine, beer, cocktails...) we were so disappointed in the small amount of German beers on tap. Needless to say, my husband had soda and I tried a nice light Austrian wight wine.
Staff. Very friendly, attentive and informative! They gave us a beautiful cozy table at their romantic fireplace. Beautiful!
