The atmosphere and decor encourages you to channel your inner Austrian. Service is friendly, food is good and portions are generous. It can get very lively when there is a big group in. Great beer and wine selection too.

We've gone here on our last night for the past 3 years now. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Dinners are a little pricier, but well worth the splurge. The beer menu is MUCH larger than the actual menu!

The food here is Amazing!! Family style seating and decor added to the warm ambiance in this quaint restaurant. Some of the beers were served in large boot glasses...fun! The best part was the great food. Best meal of my vacation.

If you're craving "Wiener Schnitzel" and the like, this place is the real deal. As in Austria, you get sides of salad with your meal as well. It is what it is - very very authentic Austrian food. Give it a try! :-)

2 thumbs up for this charming, delicious restaurant! Some of our favorites were the cauliflower soup, vegetable strudel, watercress salad, paprika beef goulash, wiener schnitzel and the choucroute garni platter! We'll definitely be back! :)

Food was very tasty. Wish that there was a more extensive menu and that it was clearer about the accompanying side dishes. We ended up with extra side dishes that were separate charges from our dinner. The sides that came with the dishes were not...More

We, me and my husband, went to the restaurant at 9:15 pm and was closet already. But the schedule here at the trip advisor said 10:00 pm. Please, correct the schedule!

Russian Hill
Russian Hill has evolved into a chic residential
neighborhood with outstanding views from every corner.
Combined with several great cafes, restaurants,
antique shops and boutiques, it’s easy to see why any
visitor would gladly leave their heart in San
Francisco. Cars line up day after day to drive down
Lombard Street, the “crookedest” street in the world,
and make the slow creep downhill past charming period
