I love German food, and I LOVED this place!!!!! had the bean soup, which I think was a special that evening, soup was amazingly simple and good, obviously local quality ingredients. $5 for a small portion, which with bread was a decent mean. Goulash - FANTASTIC!!! super tender and so flavorful beef chunks, perfectly seasoned (read savory, not hot n spicy) - just delicious. $18. Dessert I had the Schwarzalder Kirsch aka black forest cake - absolutely to die for, if you don't have room, i highly recommend buying a slice to take home, absolutely heavenly $7. a little pricey, but good value for handmade, homemade cake. I also had a large stein of Erdinger Wheat beer - i prefer Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse but this beer was a close second in flavor, very good, $13. The environment was good, a little simple, but representative of a modern German restaurant. i went very early in the evening (5 pm on a friday) and the place filled up fast. I sat at the bar, so i don't know if they take reservations, but you are probably going to need them if on a busy/weekend night. I stumbled across this place when visiting Berkeley, but i will definitely be back - one of my new fav German places!!!
