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!

Enjoyed our escape to Switzerland and its regional food and wine. Having been blessed being able to have visited Switzerland, this restaurant meets the quality and taste of that country's cuisine, something I'm not aware is provided elsewhere locally, and with a pleasant ambiance.

Service was great but fondue was not good and choices were limited, drink selections were awful, and chocolate fondue dessert had almost no fresh strawberries and only 1 type of chocolate to choose from. Unfortunately won’t go back

An excellent experience! We had the Emmenthaler fondue and Raclette, with side asparagus. A bottle of Cremont sparkling wine. This couldn’t not have been better! We are thrilled the Matterhorn is alive and well, we shall return soon. Thank you.

We tried all three of their cheese fondues. They are very different and each was enjoyable in its own way. The Moitie-Moitie was very flavorful. I liked the Emmental the best. Their wines are overpriced.

A fun experience providing a sense of Switzerland. We started with the raclette and finished with the veal. Everything was very well prepared. Suggest rosti option with veal as an alternative to spaetzle.

We had a wonderful meal at Matterhorn- the quality of all the food was top notch- imported cheeses and homemade desserts- we had the prix fixe menu so we could sample everything. We did not understand our servers instructions but it did not hinder our enjoyment of the food. Very expensive. The smell of the melted cheese is pervasive from the moment you walk in the door- tasted so delicious but honestly smelled a bit of feet! Super cute gondola table for two would make a fun date. Very clean. Would recommend!

The Matterhorn has been a family favorite for years. When the previous owners decided to close and retire we were devastated. This is the first time we've dined at the "new" Matterhorn and found it to be as good as it's ever been. The changes in decor are welcome and its expansion into other dishes is a welcome edition.

Great dinner at the Matterhorn. Yummy fondue, cozy, and cute Swiss-themed décor that the owners clearly put a lot into (there's even a gondola where a couple can eat). One tip: save room for dessert. They have homemade desserts that sounded delish (not listed on the main menu), but we were too full from the fondue.
