Nightmare experience

I don't know which was worse, the elderly woman with the dirty unkept black wig placed askew on her head (we think she was the owner), the inexperienced inattentive waiter who couldn't answer a single question we asked about the menu, or the ""new york strip steak"" with a bone in it (""that's what our butcher says is a new your strip"") and so much gristle you couldn't cut through it. We were celebrating a retirement, and it was such a nightmare that we're going to pretend last night...view more never happened and go out and celebrate tonight at Il Postale. Hardy's Bavarian is a dump. Don't waste your money or your time.view less

BEST GERMAN FOOD THIS SIDE OF GERMANY

I lived in Germany for a year and Hardy's is as good or better than some of the restaurants in Germany. It is the best German food by far in the Bay Area. Hardy's is a family must for our grown children when they are in town.

Wonderful German Food at a Reasonable Price

I think I have been to all the German places outside SF in the bay area, and I think this place is great. The food is fresh and tasty and the service is nice and charming. The only downside is that Hardy's is understaffed, so the service can be slow, but they are sweet people that serve you. The beer is great, they obviously clean their keg lines regularly, but damn, the food is great. I haven't had anything there I didn't like.\r

Fantastic Food, just takes a while

The other reviews for this restaurant are off base... judging by their reviews, we would have never gone. \r
\r
This was probably some of the best german food I've had in a very very long time. Everything we had was spectacular. Yes, the service was _very_ slow, but they made up for it with a soup, overly generous portions for the starters, a salad before the main course. \r

Don't go here for a quick meal, enjoy the experience, take a little bit of time and relax.

Rude service--not recommended unless you're ready to be insulted

I tried to get a reservation for Valentine's Day. After finding out that they had it available, I politely inquired about the restaurant to make sure it was a suitable date place (important as some German places are designed to resemble beer halls and are not appropriate for a romantic dinner for two). Ended up getting a snide response and the hostess hanging up on me. \r
Like the other person's review said, I guess they don't want ""just anybody's business."" Even if you don't want t

Denied service after years of patronage!!!

Hardy's was my favorite restaurant ever since I can remember (at least 10 years). I've been going there for all my birthdays, celebrations, ect; spending at least $80 for two people at dinner, and $25 takeout for myself during my visits. The staff know my parents by name due to their continual patronage also.\r
To my suprise, I WAS DENIED SERVICE today. When I first walked into the restaurant I was ignored (there were 2 people sitting at the bar and only two tables were occupied with
...view morecustomers). Finally after a few minutes of just standing there while other customers were greeted coming in after me, I was asked how I may be assisted. I stated I would like to order food to go. After the woman shuffled around some papers, she approached me and whispered that they do not do ""To Go"" orders! I can't even begin to explain the shock after recommending and bring a good amount of business to the establishment throughout the years! I have never been denied service in my life and do not recommend anyone to visit a place where they pick and chose who they serve - the drive over with todays gas prices would just be a waste of your time to see if they are willing to serve you or not. I highly doubt after ten years of service myself and now my family will ever return or recommend such a place.view less

Must Try!

Excellent food, but the service is a little slow. I've been to the restaurant with both large and small groups, and the service was equally slow. However, the food keeps me coming back!
