Great food/ bad drinks. Great ambiance! Will come back for food
I was disappointed in the food and the waitress's help. I ordered my burger rare and my fries super well done. The meal arrived and the fries were limpy and not crisp so I asked for them to cook them more. While they were off doing that, I cut my hamburger in half and the first thing I noticed was the lack of any pink.....in other words, NOT rare or even close to rare. When the server came back with the new order of fries, (again limpy and not crisp) I let them know that the burger was not rare and overcooked. At that point I told them to just cancel my entire order.
This was a lunch with my husband, one that I look very forward to each week and unfortunately the food and service sucked for me.
Outdoor seating and ambience is best to relax and sip on your drink.
Food is always great at Steins. Love their beer selection. The outdoor patio is lovely and spacious. Waitstaff are nice, but a little slow. You really have to try to get their attention. I think they just need more staff.
Great menu, fun place, nice patio, great food, many drink options
Enjoyed a nice late lunch at an outdoor table. Good food, drink and wonderful service!
Really good beer selection, good food, including GF options. Have been before; will go again.
Restaurant is good but unhappy with the customer service
Nice outdoor seating and good vibe. Lunch menu needs a couple more items. Pricy, but that's Mountain View!
lovely ambience in the outdoor setting. Crazy delicious soft shell crab eggs benedict. Regular burgers and also regular eggs very good. Nice beer selection. Hard to get server's attention (both this time and a month ago). Maybe bc of Covid restrictions, they seem overly busy. Normal condiments like salt and pepper and ketchup are not on table and servers are slow to provide when asked. Also, they no longer wear masks (we were outdoors), which made me uncomfortable even tho they said they stopped bc they're all vaccinated.
This was my first time at Steins. The back patio was really nice. The beers were great, food was pretty good and the service was excellent. The food menu was slightly limited but I can only assume that was due to Covid times and that it may expand in the future. I would still recommend.
Overall, very good experience. Great ambience, very good food and beer selection. Service a bit challenging at times, but probably due to understaffing due to covid-related challenges. I'd definitely go back again and recommend it to friends.
Calamari was very tough, fries were OK. Cocktails were good (first one was great and second was meh), and beer was great! Flights are recommended to try a variety of drinks!
Went for Sunday Brunch on the 4th of July. Patio area is perfect. Umbrellas for shade and social distanced. Staff was attentive and efficient. Food was very good (Chicken/waffle/bacon/eggs) and a great value.
We ate outside and enjoyed the ambiance. The food exceeded our expectations- Stein burger was delicious and so was the Mac and cheese. Food also came promptly.
Test test test
Despite being short staffed, our servers were attentive and professional. The frisée salad with yams was delicious and the cocktails were excellent.
The food on the menu has changed for the better! The host and server were professional and amiable. I love the beer menu and the host helped me pick one perfect to my taste. The food was fresh and the bill didn't break the bank.
We Love this place. Food, location are very comfortable.
Great experience! First time for us eating out since covid and we felt very safe :) our server was super attentive and patient with us
Patio seating is great. Plenty of heaters.
After bringing the drinks and starters they completely forgot about us for about an hour. We were joking that after the pandemic they must have forgotten how this works :)
Great experience out on the patio on a Friday for lunch!
This was one of the best brunches I’ve ever had in a long time. We will definitely come back again.
Our service was outstanding. The food was delicious!
Great outdoor space. Drinks and food were delicious.
Nate and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful! The food was so delicious. Definitely going back!
Everything was good all around. Great beer!
great service, great food and drinks as always! Nice to have it open again!
It’s hard to be stellar for any restaurant during a pandemic
Food was great.
Excellent service and ambiance - I'll return for sure.
Food and beer were good. Server was friendly and nice. He kept coming to check on us if we need anything else even though he was very busy running around and taking care of other customers
Attentive service and great drink selection.
The food was excellent but when we were seated, we asked the hostess to give us a table in the sun and she said that section was closed and didn't let us. 5 mins later another group of 4 walked in and she gave them our coveted sunny table! That was super frustrating. Our server was lovely though and even comped the donuts cause it was my birthday :)
Love this place! Great outdoor seating which is hard to find in 2020
This written review section is annoying. I would rather just check boxes.
Great service, good beer, and tasty food. The level of buzz during Covid isn't quite there but that's a good thing! They are doing a good job with masks and social distancing protocols.
We were seated quickly, but right away noticed the table was not clean. This seemed odd since the place was not at all busy due to Covid restrictions. Bits of food were stuck to the menus, and bits were present between table slats.
My friends and I don't hang as often because of these weird COVID times, so any time we get together is a treat. Steins Beer Garden made sure it was a meal to remember. Eating outside during a pleasant evening in Mountain View was a delight. All tables are spaced out, and as soon as a party leaves, staff clean up promptly.
Food-wise, my friends and I shared fries as an appetizer (get 'em crispy!). I had the burger, which hit the spot, and my buddy had the fried chicken sandwich, which he wolfed down. And, of course, the beer! Plenty of different beers on tap and lots of good local/California choices, too.
Most importantly, shout-out to the staff, in particular, Nate and Christian. They were friendly, attentive, and provided excellent service. They took the night from good to great.
Thanks for being open and the memorable night!
