The service was good, the food fine, with a good selection on the menu, and the cocktails were ok.
We sat in the patio, which was very nice & comfortable. For some reason the entire restaurant was fairly empty. This was a Saturday night & really in my opinion this place should have been jamming

I had a confirmed Opentable reservation for Sunday brunch at 11:00 AM. My group of 5 people drove to Steingarten only to find out they open at noon. And while the opentable listing displayed a brunch menu, in the case in front of the Restsurant there was no brunch menu. So Steingarten and Opentable, someone slipped up!
3 stars were based on nothing, may be great inside. I have no idea, rating was only way to tell about my experience.

Took my son, an avid beer fan, here for his birthday after finding about the place on Ratebeer.com. Turned out to be a wonderful evening - fantastic beer list, food was great, and the atmosphere was very comfortable. Our server messed up one of the burger orders, but that was probably our fault. Drinks, dinner, dessert and tip was about $40 a person.

When you eat your food and wished you had cooked at home, you know its bad. The food was just so bland. I had the alligator sausage - well presented but just had no flavor. My husband had the grilled cheese - the cheese was cold and we were quite literally the only patrons there on a Friday night. It's sad because the concept is fun and the beer list is great! Our server was lovely and it's really just too bad they can't get their food together.

I've been here five or six times. I feel like it keeps getting worse. Latest time was a Sunday brunch. Eggs were fine. But everything else was so-so, especially the chicken schnitzel which was laden with oil and had clearly been prepared a day or two earlier and then just reheated. Plus the service was beyond disinterested despite an almost empty abode.

Great beer selection, and the staff is knowledgeable to help you select. I tried a sour beer, which I never would have gotten and was surprised that I liked it.

Short ribs are good. I am not much in to sausages these days, so that cuts out a lot of their menu.

I like the outdoor patio, which is pretty, and generally quieter than inside, but when they have events they put them out there, or the room in the front, making the noise level too high!

Walked in at 1:30 on a weekday. 2 customers at the bar in the entire restaurant. Strange feeling but the bartender/server was just as good as can be. Food was OK but not worth going back for, although he told us the fish and chips were excellent, so we might try again.

Hung out with a friend of mine and it was almost too loud. Maybe it was the acoustics, combined with Trivia Night, combined with a table of self-important millenials that made it louder than it usually is but it was brutal!

As for the food, they had some interesting sausage choices (Alligator & Portk, Armenian Exotic(??)) and found their 3-sausage choice quite enjoyable.

The food and ambience at Steingarten were great! The service was spectacular. Plus, we were there early enough to enjoy happily hour and stayed late enough to enjoy late happy hour again! Our server was the most gracious host and we had a group with our own private seating and dining area.
The restaurant is set up for multiple private dining and drinking experiences as well as karaoke.
The drinks are bell made and delicious. Our party had an amazing time celebrating my brother's birthday and we will definitely be returning to this location to experience it again!

Earnest but inexperienced service (slow, numerous trips back and forth to the kitchen because no one uses trays), food was forgettable and some was just bad (chocolate cake was bland and oddly crispy, waffle tasted good but was soft). Fyi, the buns for the sausages are extra. Didn't know that.

Really great beer, wine and cocktail list. We loved the cocktails and they're made with really fresh herbs and berries. Amazing burgers, we get those every time and we also like the sausages and fries. Its fun to try a different sausage each time and some are pretty unique. All in all a great place with nice servers too!

Steingarten is a German restaurant, and we were there for Happy Hour. Their very reasonably priced HH menu ($5 small bites and $4 mixed drinks) included a variety of sausages (including veggie options), which arrived on rolls with a choice of toppings and mustard. Parking is easy and it's a quick drive from UCLA on a quiet stretch of Pico. A lively crowd, but not so noisy as to make catching up with co-workers difficult. All in all a great find. We'll be back!

Went to Steingarten for the Ballast Point pint night and we had a blast. The service was really great and made sure we had anything we needed and then some. Food was excellent as well. We're already trying to plan another trip for one of the upcoming nights that highlight specific brewers. Also, we were blown away at the beer offering that they keep on hand. Some very VERY hard to find stuff there.

I've been to this restaurant three times now and it is quickly becoming a favorite place of mine. It has great German food along with other favorites to order. The Beer list is very defined with a vast selection. The service was great and a wonderfully friendly staff. Has a wonderful outside back patio seating and a fire pit for more romantic setting. The website is easy to review and the free reservation selection is incredibly helpful since I have gone now with two big groups. I would recommend this location to anyone with a few friends, a date or just a small lunch.

We went to Steingarten LA to watch the World Cup final. We were a group of 8 people. The ambiance was great-the place was filled with energetic soccer fans. Regardless of the large crowd, the staff was attentive and helpful.

One thing that stood out on the menu was their Vegas sausages. I tried one and it was so delicious! Didn't taste vegan at all! Highly recommend you try one of the 3 choices. They have a large beer selection as well.

Great place, I will be back.

Steingarten is a nice little neighborhood place with amazing rotating and fixed beer menus, thorough whiskey offerings, and an interesting cocktail menu that I have never sampled because the beer options are just too good to pass up. Their grass-fed yet reasonably priced burgers are juicy and really tasty. I had two of their sausages, lamb (great) and elk (meh) and the rolls they come on are delicious. A lot of sausage selections ranging from familiar (all beef kosher) to exotic (alligator, game). The ambiance is really special, indoor are communal tables and a cozy atmosphere, and the outdoor patio is beautiful with ample seating and a nice fireplace you can sit around. Highly recommended for a casual dinner in the neighborhood.

Every time I've gone to Steingarten, it's been a pleasant experience. The food, service, and ambience are excellent. A casual dining experience that must be tried for well made burgers, sausages, sides, and unique beer list. I must add that on my last visit I tried their chicken wings.... I must go again soon to order those again! The well-seasoned abundant sauce, the crunchy skin, and tender meat....oh so good & very original tasting! This last visit, we were a party of 7 and everyone was pleased and very satisfied.

Steingarten LA is an amazing find for foodies who appreciate attention to detail. The homemade mustards and curried catsup are so flavorful and the sausages are as delicious as they are varied. Be sure to have your Bratwurst or or other sausage on a homemade pretzel roll. The selection of beers, ales and other brews is exceptional - probably the largest in Los Angeles. Next time you are at the Landmark Theatre or Westside Pavilion on Pico, be sure to stop by Steingarten for a tasty and satisfying snack or meal. I brought my foodie gal pals there for the first time and they loved the beet salad, cole slaw and sweet potato fries as much as the beer and sausages, too. Melissa P

I can't comment on the wine list. I'm sure it's great, like everthing else at Steingarten. But I go there for the always great, always changing beer menu. They've always got sours, my wife's beer of choice, and since I like to keep her happy, a bar with sour beer in hand is quickly becoming how I determine a place knows their stuff. Overall Steingarten concentrates on local, Belgian and German beers, and the cocktails are great too. With quality mixology there can sometimes be a wait, but there's no other place I enjoy spending time at, so I'm not in a rush. My wife and I are always impressed with the genuinely nice waitstaff. The new late night happy hour is welcome. I hope to be over to our favorite place more often.

Went here for lunch on a Saturday. I have heard of it but never been. So glad I went. The beer list is very extensive. The sausages are very good (I recommend getting the 3 option). The nachos are very good, using potato discs instead of corn chips. Flavors were very good and our server Erik was very good. Looking forward to going back!
