Steingarten is one of our neighborhood favorites and a place we regularly choose as the venue for any big groups or special occasion. The Golden Prize Burger is a wonder, and the ever-changing beer list is always fun to experiment. Also, they have good mojitos!

We made a 6:30 reservation, but were running late. When I called Steingarten they said no problem. When we got there even a little later than anticipated they were still very accommodating even though the restaurant was crowded. A very nice family dinner out for my husband's birthday. All the food was really great, and the service pleasant and professional. The only drawback was that it was very loud. Next time we will definitely take the table on the patio.

Great experience! An impressive tap (beer) list, and incredible bottle selection. Great food. Friendly and attentive service; the people here are fantastic. We came with a big group and they were very accommodating and attentive. Great place for a celebration or a beer after work :) Highly recommended!

Simple and Good
We had an early dinner and took advantage of the happy hour menu. Everyone enjoyed their sausages and beer and the potato salad was good too. Prices are reasonable, the ambience is casual and the service is friendly. The best seats on the outside patio were all taken.That would have been our first choice as where to be seated.

Bison Sausage is a Must!
We had lunch here on a Wednesday - it was empty, which seemed a bit odd. Otherwise, the food was very good (burger reviews were particularly strong from those in our group who had burgers for lunch). The bison sausge was fantastic. And the waiter made me a special beer and sprite. All in all - a good lunch.

Great Beer Garden in LA
We only got happy hour food and drinks, but the the sausage was delicious . We paired our meal with $6 Old Fashions and a German Hefeweizen. HH is from 4-7 M-F. I would visit Steingarten again.

I met a group of friends after work. There were over a dozen of us but they had no qualms about splitting the checks. It wasn't too busy. It seemed like it would've been fine to take a date, go with friends, or just stop by for a drink. Some people there had young kids there. I wouldn't say it's at all kid friendly but it's not like they didn't belong there.
Not a bad beer selection. Sausages are tasty but the more traditional ones are juicier than the wilder combinations listed on the menu. The place is pretty chill. Never felt self conscious about making too much noise. Didn't hear conversations from other groups. There aren't a ton of TVs or much else going on. Good place to go talk and laugh, not be "entertained."

In a city full of beer gardens and german sausage houses popping up everywhere, this one holds true to its authenticity as far as flavor and quality of meat. The beer list is extensive and changes daily. The sausages are huge and delicious. Compared to places like Wurstküche where I used to always go, it's a much better value and better quality food. The environment is less beer tavern and more sit-down restaurant though, but that's fine.

Thank you so much
My fiancé and I had a wonderful time at our engagement party at Steingarten last weekend! Originally I was nervous as my party of 16 was growing by the minute, but the staff at Steingarten were amazing - even when 27 people showed up! They put us in a semi-private room at the front of the restaurant, and Natalia, our server, was nothing but EXCELLENT. Food was great, Raspberry Mojito's were the bomb, and the atmosphere had the perfect vibe of energy, restaurant, bar & privacy. Really hard combo to get I think!
Thank you so so so much for making this special evening a total breeze for us!

Awesome new brunch. Pancakes
Awesome new brunch. Pancakes were amazing - European flavor with walnuts. Also a great omlette combo. Vanessa and Colette are delightful servers. Lucky to have this in the neighborhood. Those who are waiting or can't get a table at John O'Groats across Pico should consider this for brunch on weekends.

They just started serving
They just started serving brunch, and it's still a work in progress. Coffee ordinary. But the breakfast items we tried were very good. Took a little too long to get to us, but very tasty and reasonably priced.

Crazy burgers and sausages!
If you're a fan of burgers, this place has crazy-good ones. The sausage menu is definitely worth a visit as well. The only thing I would caution on is that it took quite a while for the food to be prepared, so it's not my favorite choice for lunch when I need to get back to the office.

I don't eat meat but I do love beer so my other half and I decided to finally check out this restaurant. I figured worst case I could eat a big soft pretzel while drinking beer. Much to my delight they have quite a few vegetarian options. We split a vegan sausage (the italian one - they actually have 3 different vegan sausage options!) on a pretzel bun. It was really good and as a former sausage lover I felt like I got a long overdue "fix". We also had the beet salad which was delicious. Get the big one, it is that good. Finally we had the parmesan fries. They were tasty but I will warn you, there are a LOT.
I will go back next time I get a sausage craving.

This place gets better and better each time I visit. The burgers are out of this world, both their beef burger and their very tasty turkey burger!! The venison sausage and the bison sausage were amazing! They also have amazing salads! Beers are top notch and cocktails are truly unique. This is a great place to go when you are tired of the ordinary and want to experience truly tasty food!!! Our waitress Natalia was truly a gem; you don't find like her any place else.

this is my first time at this restaurant. I made the reservation because friends and I are going to the theater across the street. We made an early reservation so that we could be at the theater by 7:30PM.
when we first got there crowd was very light. However it did pick up as we went along. The atmosphere was wonderful. Not too dark but a cozy atmosphere. The food was wonderful. The portion size large. Even though I got an appetizerI was full. The drink menu was extensive. the patio was welL lit, well hheated, and he perfect opportunity to talk to someone special.

Good food and beer
I was surprised this place wasn't more busy! They were very accommodating of our large group on a Saturday night. There's a variety of German-inspired food as well as some classed-up versions of others like chicken & waffles. The beer selection is excellent, especially if you enjoy German and Belgian styles, but there were plenty of American beers. Not a place for Bud Light drinkers.
Has a back outdoor patio with a fire pit thing. They also had two large tables indoors in the style of biergartens. Nice place
