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!

Loved it! I was craving sauerbraten (an old friend makes it every Christmas and I haven't had it in forever) and went to Teske's to get some. I was worried it just wouldn't be the same but it was just about perfect! It really hit the spot and the service was great. I didn't realize it would come with soup, salad and dessert as well... definitely worth the price. I lived in Germany for a year and I have missed the carrot and cabbage salads they bring out before your meal so I really enjoyed their version of it! And the beer was good too and comes in liters like it ought to :) LOVE this place.

Teske's is always a favorite during the Christmas Holiday Season. Portions are very generous (Huge!) and always delicious. Very authentic German Food (verified by a visitor from Berlin!). Good selection of German beers. Love Teske's!

Service was the best part, and food matched the level of service. Has a good atmosphere, which gives the feeling of being in a quaint German inn. Bathroom could use some upgrades, but that is a nitpick.
