No reservations taken but only a 20 minute wait on a Saturday night. Leopold's was filled with genuinely happy diners. There was a one page menu for food and three for beer and drinks. The draft beer was wonderful but we were not brave enough to order the boot glass. There was German music but it could barely be heard over the chatter of all the people. Conversation was difficult, but food was great. We were luck to go on a pretzel night and they were served with a nice mustard. The wait staff wore German dress and the gentleman at the door set the mood as soon as he greeted us. We truly felt we had left San Francisco and were transported to another place. We will definitely be going back.

Leopold tends to get packed so call ahead. The sausages are excellent as are starters... go for the beer boot if youve got the stomach for it.

The food and the atmosphere is great. The service is super friendly and the owner has always a smile on his face. Go get there and enjoy either german beer, austrian food and a fantastic atmosphere - said this, it can be a little loud in there.

Well, my husband was on a mission to find a German restaurant on our vacation to San Fran and I am so glad he found Leopold's. We had a wonderful evening, dining on sauerbraten and schnitzel and enjoying some fine German beer. The food was delicious, the atmosphere quaint, and the staff was attentive (even met the chef, who stopped at the table to see how our meal was).

A wonderful evening at a great restaurant - try it, you'll like it!

We walked in to Leopold's on a Friday night and were seated instantly. The table next to us seemed quite drunk and were very loud and the manager wisely did not serve them a boot. Our server knew all the answers to our questions about the beers and was very friendly. My friend got the Wienershnitzle and I got the raised rib. Both were amazing!!! They came out quickly and with beautiful presentation. A big party came in and sat next to us and were waiting for our table to add to their section. While the group made it known loudly they wanted our table, we never felt pressured by the server to kick us out of our table. Price was great and it was a fantastic start to our evening.
