The food as awful. The service even worse. If you care about how you are treated when you eat out, don't go here. Go to Suppenkuche instead for better food and MUCH better service.

That "tough" East German schtick has just crossed the line of demarcation! Walzwerk screwed up my boyfriend's birthday reservation, blamed me for it, promised to call back to see what they can do, and never did, forcing our party of 8 to

This is my favorite restaurant in the city. The food is amazing and reminds me of eating in small Mom-and Pop restaurants in south Germany. If you think the waiter is short with you, just remember he's GERMAN. That's what Germans are

I've known about Walzwerk for years...But I've never been. Nor did I know anyone who had ever been. Once my meal was over, I knew why: the food is totally ordinary. I tried the roulade and the stuffed chicken, and I was unimpressed. The schnitzel looked and apparently was terrible. Desserts were mediocre. Etc, etc...

I don't normally write reviews on these sorts of things, but I felt I had to defend the honor of Walzwerk because I adore it, and its owner and employees, so dearly. The last couple of reviews were, in my humble opinion, absolutely

Pros: awesome service, consistently amazing food, the prices are super

Cons: sometimes on the weekend if I haven't made a reservation, I can't get a seat!

Walzwerk has the rudest waitresses I have ever come across. The service was just plain nasty so we ate and ran as fast as we could.

Pros: Lots of parking

Cons: Rude service

The Citysearch reviews are usually spot on, but not for this restaurant. Hopefully, my review will help. Most importantly, 2 people in my party could not eat their dinner because it was horrible. I thought I could count on them not to mess

Pros: They know how to pour a beer. Just hope you don't get it in a cracked or dirty glass.

Cons: Everything else.

Decorated in old East German wares, this place is fun to visit. It's a little like being teleported to someone's house in old East Berlin. Very clever and real Krauts serve you. Of course the beer is fantastic, and for German food, they've

Pros: everything

Cons: location isolated as far as restaurants go, but still central

This is place where we really like to go. It is hard to get in on friday nights, so we go early. The food tastes good all the time. The schnitzels are nicely cooked, the owners are very personable. Not too noisy, friendly atmosphere. Give

Pros: excellent food, excellent atmosphere

Nice, relaxing atmosphere. Good food, but they burnt the edges of my schnitzel. I ate around the charred meat and it was still very good. Waitstaff was friendly but didn't have their act together. Had to ask for the bill two times (once we

From the ambience to wines to, most importantly, the food, I'd be hard pressed to find a more awesome restaurant than Walzwerk. Had an office party here and filled out the back room. Walls are delightfully detailed with German goodies

Pros: Food, Wine/Beer, German accents!

I always thought of german food as heavy meats and sauces but the menu here had a lot of interesting, less heavy options. the restaurant was small and the decor was sparse. The beer menu was vast, but didn't offer any guidance for those

What a great surprise to be invited to Walzwerk by a German friend. There were 10 of us and everyone enjoyed their meal, their beer, the service and the ambience. It was a busy Friday night but we were well taken care of. Thank you

Pros: Authentic Food, Inexpensive, Beer Selection

I'm surprised to read so many reviews criticizing service here -- we were served promptly and courteously. The food was terrific, the prices reasonable, and the staff welcoming and personable. Wunderbar!

Editorial from

On a cool, crisp night in San Francisco (which could be in January or July), chilly diners find their way down the desolate block of South Van Ness that leads to Walzwerk. The service is warm and dishes are the homey, hearty variety…
