Steingarten LA is a California-inspired beer garden that combines the old country feel of München and the contemporary flare of Los Angeles.

The Small Bites Menu changes frequently and offers uniquely crafted recipes that present an array of fresh and sophisticated dishes. The burgers are all natural, grass fed, no hormones, no antibiotics and made out of ground sirloin steak.True to its name, Steingarten offers an array of 70 beer selections, with an extensive bottled beer collection and 20 rotating craft beers. Full bar.Dark wood, fireplaces, a retractable dining-room ceiling and a quaint private patio make up the ambiance, where diners can sit at traditional communal tables or opt for a more private experience at the individual ones. Please ask for catering services at your venue. Call Abbey at 310-901-5989. Thank you

Big and Bustling, Shaw's Crab House stands as a monument to fish and seafood. Besides the usual popular dishes, Shaw's management team is passionate about presenting treats such as Pacific salmon, fresh king crab, and smelt during their short seasons. Reservations made through Open Table will be for Shaw's Main Dining Room. If you would like to dine in the Oyster Bar, all seating is on a first come first serve basis.

Seamlessly melding refined and rustic, vintage and contemporary, Sepia has the feel of an instant classic. The stylish space is warm and inviting, comfortable yet lively. Attention to detail runs throughout Sepia -- both in the room and on the plate -- from the custom Art Nouveau tile floor to the hand-crafted millwork and the vintage stemware. The easy elegance of the room serves as the perfect backdrop for the inventive American cuisine. Chef Andrew Zimmerman's product-driven, seasonal menu showcases the purity and quality of the ingredients, letting both the ingredients and his passion for what he does shine through. Sepia celebrates tradition – with a modern twist.

"Good food, but not great food. Very noisy. And they leave the large windows open at the front of the restaurant, which face the ocean, so it would seem like a good idea. But between the ocean and your table is bustling Ocean Avenue, with a bus roaring by every couple of minutes, stopping right in front of your table. Lots of people meandering by on the sidewalk, many of them smoking.
Abysmal "move 'em out quick" service. Main courses arrived while appetizers were still being eaten. We sent them back, but not without further disruption as we had to explain to everyone what should have been obvious. Quite disappointing.
At least there is free corkage."
