My friend and I celebrate the approach of Oktoberfest at Speisekammer every fall. We sat outside on a lovely day and enjoyed German beer and food.
Awesome, little bit pricey but worth it! A must for any European in the Bay
Delicious comfort food served by warm and friendly staff!
We had eaten here before, but quite a while ago. Whatever we had before must have been just ok, because we couldn't remember it.
On this night, however, the food was absolutely delicious! I had the Gegrilltes Lachsfilet (grilled salmon with mashed potatoes and spinach with onions), my sister had the Weisskohl Rouladen (cabbage leaf stuffed with seasoned ground beef) and said it was at least as good as her German mother-in-laws'! My husband had the Curry Wurscht (pork and beef sausage with curry ketchup and fries). He also enjoyed his dark beer, chosen from an extensive menu of German or German style beers.
Service was great from the friendly hostess to our server and the rest of the staff!
Excellent quality authentic German food. Get the salad plate. Grilled salmon perfectly cooked. Good cocktails too. Lovely outdoor sitting area - perfect for these Covid times.
We love to come and eat at Speisekammer. The food is excellent and the service is great as well.
It’s a neighborhood gem and best real beer selection, not just 5 kinds of ipa like everywhere else.
This place was highly recommended but we went kind of late and the food was cold and the Potato pancakes were hard as a brick. The server was great and the manager took the meal off of our bill which was very kind.
Excellent genuine German food
It was delicious. Was such a good place fir a good change of foods. Not pizza or burger.
Dined outside after more than a year away. Great service and the food is still good, but the bread isn’t what it used to be.
Always great food and delicious German beer.
We had lunch inside where it was cool and quiet. They were short staffed and you could see the servers running around. However, every time they interacted with us, they were sweet and kind. The food was fantastic!!
They have a great selection of different styles of beers on tap - more than just IPAs. It was enjoyable on a summer afternoon where I could comfortably chat with my wife in a family-friendly environment.
The food was amazing, safety protocols fantastic and our server was the best.
We have been regular patrons for the last 15 years and we continue to be happy to indulge in our favorite German dishes….sometimes you just have to have a schnitzel dinner.
Courteous waitpersons. Abundant and flavorful food servings.
Went here with some friends to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. It was a chill spot. Not too busy. Service was great. Food was tasty.
Returning after a 2 year hiatus was rewarding. The food was as spectacular as I remember. The service was excellent. I was happy I made reservations because the walk in line was long. The potato pancakes were fabulous as I remember. Super crispy with thin strands of potato. I don't know how they do it. Their beer list was extensive and diverse.
The Jäger schnitzel and bratwurst wer fabulous. I had the spaetzel with black forest ham. Super rich and creamy.
Call for the specials. I was looking for the roasted pork belly that they had as a special the week before. Darn.
We've been to Speiskammer many, many, many times and have always been happy with the food and service (5 stars across the board in the past). This recent visit was perhaps just an off night for the restaurant.
A wonderful place to eat outdoors with fabulous food!
Great Father’s Day experience:) Danke!
I love this German restaurant. Food is perfect as well as portions. You can have quiet indoor dining or fun outdoor group dining. Has a bar and live music often. Always get a table thou I always do reservations now.
It was great. The food is off the charts. Do yourself a favor and go.
We went for my husband’s birthday with our 7 month old daughter. They have a nice seating area outside where it was easy to bring her in a stroller. We saw a lot of other families with young kids; granted, we were there before 5pm. Food was great and service was fast. I would definitely recommend it, and looking forward to going back!
Not sure if this is due to the pandemic but quality has gone seriously down at this restaurant. The service is still great and staff is super friendly but the food was not as good. My pretzel was stale and also the portions were not as generous
It was our first time visiting Speisekammer on March 14, 2020—and it may have been our last meal out for a bit... if so it was the way to go out strong! I loved everything—from the pretzels and beer cheese to schnitzel, Spatzl, and struedel. I can’t wait for the chance to go back!
I reserved Speisekammer for our group of eight on Saturday, March 7th. We had to signal our server to get drinks, appetizers, and lunch. He ought to have been a bit more attentive for a large group. The beer and wine came promptly, as did the appetizers and lunch once ordered. The food was just OK. A few years ago when we all were last there, we thought our dishes were tasty and nicely presented. I sincerely hope this restaurant isn’t cutting corners to maintain or increase profits. I’d rather pay a bit more if it meant keeping quality high. We hope this isn’t the beginning of a slide into obscurity for Speisekammer. I’ll check it out from time to time, but I won’t bring our group there if things don’t change for the better.
I liked the space; the fireplace was lovely. I was disappointed in the food; it was not particularly flavorful. I wanted more seasoning in all of the food. My two friends felt the same way. One ordered the salmon salad, one ordered the wiener schnitzel and i had the stuffed cabbage rolls. we each found our food to be bland. i did like the salad dressing.
We never had a bad meal here....it is one of our favorites !
There was a large group in our room making more noise than typical
Looking forward to a big night with our newleywed kids. They sat us by the bathroom. The furthest corner from anything. We didn't know it was the bathroom because there was a curtain and no sign. But as the night went on the traffic by our table was busy. I thought going through OpenTable, we would have had a better table.
Even though it showed up written correctly on the final bill, one of our plates came out with the wrong meat on it(one covered in gravy). When returned, then it was at least a crispy schnitzel, but pork rather than veal. Now, though, the spaetzle had become fried potatoes. They graciously brought a side of spaetzle, but hmmm-get it right the first time? The cabbage rolls were ok-so well-cooked that the cabbage was thin mush. Mashed potatoes had no texture at all-whipped to death.The dessert list was small and nothing excited. How about a dark chocolate cake rather than German chocolate (which is NOT a German thing)? We reserved, but our table was right in front of the bar, so before the music began, people were standing close by.
Great food.... beer...drinks...
Great food n beer selection
The service was excellent. The waiter explained all about the beers n got as extra bread etc since we were all hungry. It was my birthday celebration n they made it special.
Great food and great service! I would highly recommend this restaurant.
noisy with absolutely no parking. food was just ok. expensive for what you got
This was our second lunch reservation and found to be with the food quality and service to be consistent. Have nothing negative say. Love everything on their menu. Excellent waitress. Would go back in a heartbeat
Met friends for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Arrived at opening 11:30 and felt silly for making reservations but the place soon filled up (not even a game day!). Great bar and of course German and other beers on tap from both local and from around the world. We shared a large meat plate (all their greatest sausage and pork hits) and a large mixed German salad plate (four different salads, all reasonably healthy). Finished off sharing the best strudel i've ever had (including places in Germany). Good value for the prices too. So fortunate to have Speisekammer local in Alameda!
