The atmosphere at Steingarten LA is casual and vibrant and there is a full bar along with 100 beers to choose from.
Start your meal with an appetizer like a soft pretzel, a cheese board or an order of Steingarten LA sliders. Larger dishes include Hungarian sausage linguine and fried chicken schnitzel.
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.
Good local beer garden, good mix of sausages, salads and burgers. Very friendly staff, would go back.
Food was surprisingly delicious. Good quality and not greasy (as I expected of German food)
Both the service and food were excellent. Everyone in our party was satisfied, and in addition, enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.
Thanks for a wonderful evening.
I love the Steingarten and I wanted to introduce a friend to the little gem.
Huge sausage selection and beer list, and great ambience!
My girlfriend and I went here for a nice quiet dinner, they say is out side in there beautifully decorated patio area and the server was very friendly. The owner sat us himself truly salt of the earth people and we enjoyed our experience thoroughly.
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.
Food was poor and took forever, service was equally lackluster. They didn't even have German Steins....
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!
Amazing place to eat, so delicious! My husband and I love trying all their sausages which are delicately flavored and tasty. We like the wide ranges of beers too.
The outside patio is nice, but the inside is dreary. We waited 20 minutes to sit outside when we had a reservation on Open Table. Next time I would call and request outside not use Open table.
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!
