We got there to eat for my birthday. Ate there with my brother and his girlfriend last year. It was very enjoyable. Thank you.

Nice choice of beer. Sandwich was bland but the salmon salad was nice.

We had to wait for the silverware for a while after the appetizer...but got better after that

Good selection of beer, large screen projection TV. Great for watching the big game! One rhing that they can improve is to fix the wobbly tables.

We were sat promptly and then ignored for 10 minutes. Not even water. Such a bummer.

Stein’s Beer Garden is buzzing with great ambiance and fruit beer flight was a good deal! The food, however, isn’t the best. Memorable for sure, like the pork belly chicharones, but I wouldn’t get it again. 2 of my party didn’t like the grilled cheese nor the two puréed soups: tomato bisque and mushroom. Sandwich was much too oily for their liking and the soups were too sour. Honey glazed chicken wings were too sweet, and Pako’s Tacos had more batter than fish. Saving grace was the rib app. Good bbq. Truffle fries and beer flights, I’d come back for.

Benedict’s were delicious, chilaquiiles was effort than I would have liked. Bloody Mary with house cured bacon was excellent.

Good food ( small choice of entrees but the Schnitzel was very good! and there are alot of appetizers that could double as an entree or to be shared as an entree ). Interesting choice of beers and rotating menu of drafts so each time you visit you'll have some of the *standards* along w/ some new things to try. A bit over priced but it's Cupertino and everywhere is expensive so no more overpriced than other comparable type places.

Great food and excellent beers but the main problem is the noise level. Indoors it's extremely difficult to hold conversations amongst the table. You can pretty much only hear the person next to you and that's only if you're both shouting. The outdoor seating is probably better.

Went to brunch with a friend last Saturday. No reservations needed as it was only half full at 12:30. We ordered the veggie omelette and the oat pancakes to share. The omelette was fresh and flavorful, with delicious potatoes and a buttery biscuit. The pancakes were quite dense probably because they had oat in them and they were big. The blueberry jam on top tasted like house-made. We were very happy with the whole experience and will come back to try the weekday lunch.

The food and drinks were great, but the service left a lot to be desired. I'm not sure if they were short-staffed, but we had to wait a long time for our drinks (they came out after our food, and they were wrong so we had to wait longer). We even noticed them sitting on the bar waiting to come to our table for a while. Our group really enjoyed the food and drinks, and I'd probably give them another shot, but I'm hoping if we come in again the service is much better.

This was my 3rd visit and was shocked at how bad the food was this time. Not one person in our party of 6 finished their lunch. Dry, rock hard bread on the roast beef and pastrami sandwiches ( with old, soggy lettuce), dry dry DRY roast chicken, bland chicken and buffalo chicken sandwiches. Hoping it was just an off day.

Meh. It was fine food, but a small menu (shrank a great deal since they opened), and the whole thing has a bit of an open hall feel. I very much like the Steins in Mountain View which has a better (and larger) menu, and a much more beerhall/congenial feeling. I would recommend you go to that one (and its Biergarten)

Not impressed with the food. Went for brunch; hardly anyone there. Had the Smoked Brisket Benedict... hardly any meat, small biscuits. Portions were small. No real taste. Country potatoes were so so. Pricey ...$16.00. Now I know why there wasn’t anyone there. Won’t be heading back there for breakfast anytime soon. Too many other great places to go for a better breakfast. Service was okay.

The food was good and delivered hot. Slow service, the waiter either was new, overwhelmed or they were short staffed...the house cocktail menu options were limited but tasty( I like to try the house creations). Yes, would go back.

First time my twins & I dined at GW Fins and it was amazing!! The service is outstanding, the atmosphere is beautiful, the staff is welcoming & knowledgeable about the complete menu and asked if anyone had food allergies. Never before were we asked about food allergies and pleasantly appreciated due to my diverticulitis “no seeds/peppercorns intake”. My twins who are attending Tulane University were quite taken by the food, service and ambiance that they will return while in University. Thank you for your hospitality and delectable cuisine. We will return!! Twins content after their entrees watching mom enjoy her after dinner drink 🍸

When I got there and was deciding on an outside or inside table, I asked the host how was the service was outside, he told me it was great and he brought over the server who said he'd take care of us, he didn't.
Server didn't know if there was soup, let alone what the flavor was suppose to be. It took three tries to get one salad correct. The water glasses were constantly empty and the server was never around to request more.
The place was not that busy, there were many unused tables, so I don't know why the service was not there?

We went for brunch on a Sunday morning when they opened. They were expecting us based on the Open Table reservation, and had a table already set for us. When I mentioned that we had to head to the airport afterwards, they said we could be out within 40 to 50 minutes. It ended up being 45 minutes so they were very knowledgeable about their turntime. The waiter was knowledgeable about the food when my daughter asked about gluten-free options, and he made sure I knew that the veggie omelette had goal cheese (I like goat cheese but understand why he wanted to double check that I knew it was going to be in there). The food came quickly, was hot, and was some of the best breakfast food we've ever had! I had bites of my son's waffle (with chicken) and the waffle was incredible - it tasted more like an awesome donut than a boring waffle. My son said the chicken was the best he's ever had. We will definitely be back for breakfast/brunch...soon!

It seems that not that many people know about brunch here in Cupertino. I was a little bit unsure whether or not the food here was good. But I am amazed at their salmon benedict AND brisket benedict. The waitress was super attentive and helped us serve our food. Thank you!

Went here and they were pretty busy, and told them it was my husband's birthday. They didn't really accommodate or acknowledge this until the end when the server did comp us donuts for his birthday. It was an ok experience but it was pretty expensive for what we got.

Seems like a decent place to watch games, and surprisingly, also play them, too! Have not been to an eatery that had such a selection of board games to play with your dining mates while waiting for food.
