Best German, Swiss or Austrian in SF (or on Peninsula)?

mtm | Dec 8, 2006 10:32 AM

Looking for an update to former threads.

Names I've seen thus far?
Suppenkuche
Schnitzel Haus
The Matterhorn
Walzwerk

Sorry to post again but realized if friends less into Atkins (or not die-hard now) that they used to be major German food fans! (some of their background) Just loved it. (us not so much as we're vegetarians! But...we can take it for a night, if it means bliss for them, as they visit from out of the area)

Heard area around Schnitzel Haus is dicey to say the least. Best to take cab their from Union Square or....?

Your favorite option? Would be nice to have good food but not necessarily a dicey locale. Hard to find both. Seems most German restaurants in SOMA area or ? None in a pretty area?

We did Suppenkuche years ago...but got impression my friend who loves Sauerbraten was mildly disappointed.

Also did the Matterhorn years & years ago. But I know we don't want fondue right now, as we had it tonight in Saratoga. But they had more than that too. Not a fave area of mine...on busy, impersonal Van Ness.
Help? (one more idea for us)
Thanks!
