Mountain experiences - outdoor adventures, food, family, friends and community – always find us at our happiest.

At Matterhorn Restaurant & Bakery we showcase the magical experience of Swiss on-mountain dining, whether it’s après-ski, après-work, or après-all day.

Our restaurant focuses on authentic alpine cuisine, thoughtfully sourced and lovingly served in a setting inspired by the mountain "Stüblis" of the Alps. The menu is anchored by the Swiss classics of Fondue and Raclette - but features other typical fare highlighting various alpine regions.

Beer, wine and beverage offerings are designed to feature classic and fun pairings from Old and New World alike.

The Matterhorn has been a San Francisco institution, and we're proud to bring a fresh new chapter to its iconic story. As our guest it's an honor to have you at the story's center!

    We loved the quaint "Swiss" ambiance! We were introduced to a new Cocktail, the Hugo (which we loved) and they served my favorite dish, before only made by my Swiss Mom. Also our Waitress was wonderful.

    Our family has been dining at the Matterhorn for years. We were sad when it closed and skeptical when it changed ownership, but we are very impressed with the new ownership! The details such as Heath dinnerware, the fresh baked bread and desserts, the selection of cheeses and meats and don’t let me forget the delicious pickles! We are so happy that the Matterhorn will continue to be one of our family traditions!

    Service was great, ambiance was great. But as far as the value…eh…there were only 3 sides to dip into the cheese fondue. Bread, potatoes and pickled cauliflower. So yeah…not very filling.

    There was no AC at all, and on a very hot day it was miserable to say the least. The food was great, and so was the service, but I wasn’t able to enjoy either to the fullest extent as I was sweating like it was a sauna. My date nearly passed out.

    What more could you want in life than cheese fondue and chocolate fondue in the most adorable swiss/french alps setting? This was my second time here and I'm already excited to come back. Don't sleep on the schnitzel and kir royale.

    Charming setting/decorations, clever wait staff, delicious food and drinks! Worth reserving a table and trying both the beef fondue and the raclette dinner. Just wish that the smores dessert fondue had more items to dip (we only got some apples and like 3 cookies). It's a little expensive but it all tasted superb!

    The Matterhorn is easily the best Swiss restaurant in SF. The food is really authentic, and the ambiance feels just like a Swiss ski chalet. The staff is very attentive as well. I highly recommend the Moitié-Moitié fondue, raclette, and rösti, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. My Swiss boyfriend and I eat here every year on our anniversary – it's very cozy and romantic. Bon appétit!

    Our server and the staff were super friendly and attentive. Everything was amazing besides the cheese fondue we ordered, it was very strong in bourbon taste to the point where we couldn't touch the second fondue we ordered, even though we asked for less bourbon because of the strongness of the taste.

    I went there a couple of months ago for my birthday, and had to cut shorth the visit as I was running late for the theater, and since then I have been dreaming about going back. I did it last week (now with plenty time to spare) and I'm already looking forward to my next visit. Great food, great service, great ambient, is like you are actually at the alps!

    Wow! Made reservation to sit in the gondola and it all worked out so well. My 80 year old mom still needed that security of eating in a safe space for pandemic reasons. Just so fun and coincidentally socially distanced. The fondue is the real star! Besides bread we dipped potatoes, apples and pickled vegetables. Great wine and beer to pair too. Decor was off the charts.
