You sit family style, as is the case at many German restaurants I've been to in other towns. (This means other people will share your table.) Meatloaf was great. We also ordered jaeger schnitzel and cheese spaetzel. This place is small, busy, but good.

Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation
of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a
community park at its center and dozens of trendy
