“Consistently Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is one of my favorite neighborhood spots. Monday Goulash night is always fun and cheap. But it's worth going back for lunch or dinner to try a wider range of dishes. The Sauerbratten is sweet/sour and so tender. The brauts with kraut are spicy and tangy. The servers are happy to recommend a complimentary wine or beer to compliment the food. Another thing worth noting is that while it's great for groups, singles are welcome and I've never felt slighted either dining alone at a table or enjoying a happy hour beverage at the bar.

“Awesome cafe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This small cafe was truly an amazing experience! From the cocktail list, the food, and the service was great! They have a great selection of German beers and food including the wiener schitznel, that I had. Defintiely check this cafe out, when you are in Brooklyn.

“Austrian Brunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Went to Café Steinhof for a Saturday brunch with a group of friends. The place is simple, the tables are closer together than I would like but the overall atmosphere is pleasant and the service was casual and friendly, except the air was off and it was very stuffy (August). We ordered a few things: Cannot say that scrambled eggs and sausage ($9) were memorable but Bloody Mary was good and beer ($6-8) was fresh. The brie and Austrian ham sandwich served with a salad ($10) was quite good, Smoked trout salad ($9) was delicious, the fish was very tender. Overall I would recommend this restaurant but would not go out of my way to have a brunch there.

“Wonderful German/Viennese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Really terrific local Park Slope place that serves wursts, schnitzel, spaetzel, and many good beers, all at reasonable prices. I've been here dozens of times over the years and always want to go back. The cod chowder is remarkable, the weisswurst terrific, the weiner schnitzel and salads all extremely satisfying. Great atmosphere, service is always good. Occasionally there's a bit of a wait, but that's what happens when you're a consistently good restaurant that knows what it's doing. If you're looking a sublime French or Northern Italian restaurant find another place. But I gave Steinhof a five star rating because it's perfect at what it does.

“Great choice for a casual night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

Fun atmosphere. It gets crowded and hot (and a bit noisy), but the food is great. Perfect for a casual night out with your significant other or friends! The chicken paprika is delicious.
