    The food was good and I would go back again. The only problem was with the reservation. We did not get seated until almost an hour after our time. They did give us a complemintary drink while we waited, but is was a long wait for a 9pm reservation.

    So sorry to hear that Bier Beisl is closing its Beverly Hills location. It was a family favorite for the sausages (perfectly prepared), schnitzel (light and delicious), and beer (speaks for itself!). We will eagerly await the reopening on the West side.

    Simply the best restaurant in L.A. The composed nature of the dishes and the care the chef takes to balance the meal is unbelievable. Hands down the best charcuterie plate you will ever find, and the sausages are amazing, with the cheese sausage the best sausage you can find.

    The food is wonderful, some traditional German dishes with a fun twist. The schnitzel sampler is great, with three types of meat that have different schnitzel coatings. He did an unusual breading with pumpkin seeds, tasted great and perfect for the month of October. The schnitzel is not greasy at all. His warm German potato salad is excellent, as is the red cabbage. Sacher torte was perfect, not dry at all. The kaiserschmarm is just unbelievably delicious - warm pancakes with blueberries. They have an excellent beer selection. It is tough to find Stiegl Radler (with grapefruit) on tap, and the also have the Stiegl organic un-filtered beer as well. Everyone is friendly, even when we had two small children with us on a Saturday night!

    It amazed me that this place has received such great reviews. I gave it a second try and was just as disappointed as the first time. It is not that the food is bad, it is just very average but really expensive too. If my meal had cost me $10 then I would not have thought twice about it, but a $35 lunch should be good in my opinion. As for atmosphere, zero.

  • Best Kaiserschmarrn ever
    EuroGirl
    Dined on 9/17/2013
    It was my first time in this restaurant and I chose it because I am from Germany and had a craving for Austrian food. Bier Beisl did not disappoint. The veal Wiener Schnitzel was excellent and so was the potato salad and even though I am not big on desserts I agreed to share the Kaiserschmarrn with my friend. I have never had such tasty and fluffy Kaiserschmarrn in my life, not even in Austria. I was told they make them with vanilla and a little rum. To die for! I recommend Bier Beisl for everyone who likes Austrian food (don't go if you watch your calorie intake) in a casual and cozy environment. Both servers we had were super friendly and always made sure we were well taken care of.

    We came here with a group of friends for my husband's birthday and literally everything we ate was delicious. Highlights included the sausage sampler, the schnitzel sampler, the red cabbage, and the sauerkraut. They do a very specific type of food, and they do it well. We all left full and very pleased. I was only surprised that given all the high accolades online, this place was not more crowded on Saturday night. We will definitely be back!

    As an overall eating experience, we just love this place. The Schnitzel is so good that I have cravings for it. The traditional Austrian sides and specials are out of this world. They have a nice Austrian wine and beer list, too. It's a small space so make sure to get a reservation.

    The appetizer with different sausages was sublime, fresh sauerkraut and 2 specials mustards made the dish way above average. I'll even say excellent. Main courses were also tasty and authentic (this is an austrian restaurant). Overall super fun time. Great specialty beers!

    A smallish, well decorated room, a waiter with a Rasta do, and a smiling Paul Bunyan in a starched chef's coat serving up delicious, authentic Austrian food. What's not to love about this place? Not a fake frau in a dirndl, not a middle-aged lump in lederhosen, not an oversized beer stein anywhere to be seen. BierBeisl is all about the food, not the kitsch. Lots and lots of mouthwatering wursts, sauerbraten, red cabbage, sauerkraut. An excellent small wine list with some true Austrian finds. Chef Berhard Mairinger has graced Los Angeles with a lovely Alpine present. Prosit!

  • Better Than Authentic Austrian
    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 8/22/2013
    I was tempted to begin the review by stating that the food served at Bier Beisl was authentic Austrian fare. However, having lived in Vienna for 6 months, my opinion is that the food at Bier Beisl is better. Fresher ingredients, more interesting preparation, perfectly poured beer - in a word, better. There are a lot of well-known restaurants on the west side of LA but when we have out of town guests, this is a go to place for us. The chicken liver mousse is insanely good. With bread and the cheese sampler that could be dinner for two. But that would mean missing their excellent sausages (get the assorted platter if you are new to this type of food) and their schnitzel which is more flavorful and less greasy than standard Viennese fare.

  • Authentic Austrian

    There has been a dearth of quality, authentic German/Austrian cuisine in LA for some time. Many have popped up lately but few, if any, are as faithful to the cuisine and culture as Bier Beisl. None of the German kitsch, just great quality, great tasting food and beer. If you're a real wine snob, though, you may be disappointed in the wine selection. All Austrian wines is great for the theme but, let's face it, they don't make the best wines. Some good but none great. They might want to consider sneaking in a California cab just for variety.

  • Excellent sausages, schnitzels

    Dined on 8/16/2013
    This was recommended by the manager at Ray's, because a former Ray's waiter now runs this place. It's very small and intimate, and the food is very interesting. The sausage sampler was really good, and you will definitely have leftovers! Order one platter for a group of four! The schnitzels are good, there are three kinds: veal, pork and turkey, each one in a different breading, and served with lemons and lingonberries. The turkey one was dry, but the other two were good. They have a good selection of Austrian wines/beer. The server was a charming German woman who took all kinds of time to answer questions and explain the menu. She even coached us on the German way to say, "We are satisfied" instead of my wrong statement, "We are joyous."

    We ordered the 5 course tasting menu for sausages and the schnitzel and apple struedel. All were delicious! It was fun to have a tasting of sausages. The restaurant is unique because it's Austrian food which is different than just another sausage restaurant. I've never been to Austria so I have no idea if it was authentic or not, but it was definitely fun to try some of the specialties of that cuisine. The service is also very good. We really enjoyed ourselves and have already recommended it to others.

    2 stiegl weisse beers, chicken liver mousse, pork schnitzel & duo of beef entrees. sadly this place is in "downtown beverly hills" which is full of tourists and traffic. they also charge beverly hills prices for austrian/german foods which are not that sophisticated. we had better liver mousse at "la frite" in sherman oaks. BB serves it as a slab with lingonberry compote, apple "jam" and frisee. as a slab of liver pate goes it would have been better with a mustard and cornichon. or serve ala "la frite". the beer was great! the schnitzel and duo of beef both pretty good, suffered from miniature portion disease. $36 for about 6 bites of meat? the best part of the meal was the service. highly attentive servers with uber-charms! thanks Harry!

    My husband was raised in Vienna. We visit there often, so we know about real Austrian food,. This is the real deal. We had two different schnitzels. Each was thin, crisp and delicious. The potato salad was right out of a Viennese bier hall. Tghe selection of wursts was awesome and though we did not try any, our table companions found them fabulous. While Sachertort is the best known Viennese Dessert, the Kaiserscharme with plum sauce was a "don't miss" A cross between bread pudding and a fluffy crepe. The gruner veltlinger was a fresh fruity light summer wine. The fladle soup which they call veal bouillon with herbed pancakes was good. The pancake strips were lovely. The consume needs to be a little stronger. We will go again....and often

    The meal brought back fond memories of food eaten during wonderful trips and stays in Austria, in a crisp modern setting. True Salzburg Stiegl beer on tap, along with Liptauer cheese, another favorite. Overall, very happy with our meal. (Can't give a totally objective review, since I have such strong positive memories of trips to Austria, starting in 1968.)

    Overall, this is a really great restaurant, well deserving of its accolades. There isn't much authentic Austrian food around, if any and here it's done with a deft hand. It's nice to try something new, even if some of it has close similarity to German food. Can't say I'd eat here often, but certainly highly recommended for a wonderful change of pace.

    A lot of pretty good fare, but it's far from cheap so you want things to be executed better. Had a few different sausages, veal and pork schnitzels, and the cured char. Quality food, but seemed to lack seasoning (aka zazz). Two thumbs up for their beer selection. Nice and regional for the cuisine.
