Wolfgang’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills started off in 2008 as the new kid on the wrong block, getting slapped with a lawsuit from Wolfgang Puck over the name of the restaurant. Fortunately for Wolfgang Zwiener, the court sided with him and his birth given name, allowing him to retain his name on the restaurant.
Today Wolfgang’s Beverly Hills restaurant thrives as one of the only places in Los Angeles offering 28 day dry-aged beef, using their own aging box. The beef is stored in a to intensify its flavor.
Using the same supplier of beef that supplies the illustrious Peter Luger of New York, it comes as no surprise as Wolfgang Zwiener worked at Luger as the headwaiter at for four decades before leaving to open his own version in Manhattan expanding to Los Angeles, Miami, Waikiki and Tokyo.

As for the food, Wolfgang’s restaurant closely follows the Peter Luger playbook. The menu doesn’t offer many beef cuts and the porterhouse for two takes center stage. The Porterhouse is a beautiful piece of dry-aged beef, arriving with sizzling butter, charred on the outside, medium rare at the center and already cut off the bone. As the meat is platted, the waiter will call out the cuts — fillet, New York strip, letting the patron know exactly what they’ll be eating.
They offer a variety of fresh, chilled seafood like Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, Clams and Oysters on the Half Shell, to a few classic salads as starters. For non-beef eaters, they offer Lamb Chops, a variety of Grilled Fish, and Lobster, and finally a nice variety of classic Side Dishes, from Creamed Spinach, Sautéed Mushrooms, to the Baked Potato which will leave you feeling full and satisfied.
