A very enjoyable experience.
We came on a Saturday evening and made a reservation. We were seated quickly and our drinks came quickly.
Of note: there are a series of courses, "it can take up to an hour and a half for a full service." We read this disclaimer online, and planned accordingly. It did indeed take about 1 1/2 hours from soup to strudel. The food was tasty. Interesting beer & wines from Germany are available. I would recommend this place so long as you are not in a hurry. Danke!

I love German food and I had been meaning to come to Teske's for years. We finically decided to go for our 25th wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. The theming of the restaurant seemed to be authentic Bavarian. The good was great. The selection of German beers on tap was large. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant was moderately busy on a week night, but it was quiet enough that conversation at the table was easy. Our eleven-year-old son had good time and requested we eat there again. We now plan to make dining at Teske's a regular thing.

Rustic atmosphere and a classy crowd make this region-specific restaurant an absolute treat to stop in for a drink or linger over an authentic German meal. The ambiance is quiet and the service prompt--and unrushed.

Outstanding food and service. Nice to see a traditional German restaurant with Biergarten. I will go back when I turn to San Jose.

Our family had guests from out of town and we wanted to share a San Jose landmark with them. We had a great dinner together! Wiener Schnitzels were a big hit and some of the specials were enjoyed. We’ve been coming to Teske’s for over 40 years and they never disappoint!

Great classic German food. Tasty and good value with huge portions. Not a place for light fare, more a place of stretchable lederhosen.
