    the mixed sausage links, schnitzel, sauerkraut, and ‬ BierBeisl Salad were stellar. We enjoyed the pizza and ‬‭ Käsespätzle‬. Service by Brian was good and helpful. Luca in the past is also very good

    I really love this restaurant. Perfect Wiener Schnitzel and Kaiserscharmn like in Austria. On top they are offering great wine and have an excellent espresso. Service is excellent and the reading your wishes from the lips.

    We had high hopes to visit Lustig last night. However my Polish wife did not enjoy her experience as much as I did. She has a high bar when it comes to European food in Los Angeles. It took a bit longer than usual for our server to take our order but the food came out fairly quickly. The Beet Salad was more of an endive salad with a few beets but it was tasty. The Tuna Canoli was delicious but quite small. The Artic Char dish was delicious. The Veal Schnitzel seemed authentic although my wife was convinced that it was deep fried even after we were told it was pan fried. The Spaetzle lacked salt. The Kid's smaller Chicken Schnitzel and Fries was $26. Then Dessert was a double disaster: the Panna Cotta was on the menu with the note "vegan option available" but we never asked for the Vegan option. They casually forgot to tell us that they only had the vegan panna cotta last night... We should have sent it back because my wife wanted the real deal. And the French Spiced Vanilla Ice Cream had strong after-taste that our daughter didn't like. Should have sent it back for a different flavor. The total bill was $236.00 for 2 adults and a 9 year old, including tip, at the beginning of DineLA week, which Lustig doesn't seem to be apart of. Overall disappointing experience even though I personally thought the food was good.

    Service was atrociously slow even though the restaurant was fairly empty. The wait staff seemed more interested in moving plates and glasses around than attending to customers.

    Anniversary dinner for 2. Started with Brotzeit (rolls and bread basket) with salted butter and homemade spreads and Chickpea Curry Salad; both delicious. Then shared The Original (Veal) Schnitzel with cucumber salad and homemade Spatzle sides. The veal was wonderful and plenty to share. Both the sides were fresh and yummy. We accompanied the meal with the First Class Wine Flight (4 wines)(also shared) and they poured a very ample portion into each of our glasses; a perfect accompaniment to the food. Desert was a treat; Black Forest Cake "Mille Feuille" that tasted as good as it looked and you've never seen it look like this. In honor of our anniversary they served us an apple strudle sorbet on the house. The wait staff is excellent. The food devine. The owner/chef came by at the end of the meal to chat and wish us well. Overall a fantastic experience. We will definitely be going back soon!!

    Good Ambience. Very welcoming team. The chef/owner is in the front of the house and working the room. He’s very pleasant and accommodating. The food is great, as always. The chicken is my favorite, but tonight it was dry and tasted like it was pre- cooked.

    Outstanding all around. Loved every dish. Hamachi Jalapeño appetizer was unique and delicious. The beet salad was delicious. We got the chicken schnitzel - must get Jäger style - with the cucumber salad which was a fresh and yummy counterpoint. The Käse Spätzle was excellent. Finally we got the black forest Mille Feuille which was totally unique (not a cake at all) and the perfect end to the meal without being too heavy. For drinks I got the jungle bird which I loved and will now make at home. My wife got the Pimms cocktail which was also quite good. Service and ambience were on point. We will be back.

    First time and absolutely loved it. The staff were so friendly, and the food was delicious! Started with Profiteroles, then the Beets, BierBeisl Salad, Cannoli and Veal Schnitzel. The cocktails were perfect as well. Will definitely be back to try other things on the menu and will recommend this place to all.
