Steakhouse
STK San Diego artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, large windows allow patrons to catch a glimpse of the bustling Gaslamp Quarter, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK San Diego is located in the heart of Gaslamp Quarter at the Andaz San Deigo. As anticipated, steak is the main attraction. STK San Diego offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options and market fresh fish entrees. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Tuna Tartar; and Sweet Corn Pudding.

We had a great dinner. Food was terrific but our best part of the night was our waiter. He was exceptional. On the flip side, I know that it's a club like vibe, but it was too loud for our business meeting.

Extremely disappointed in the lack of customer service and attentiveness. We had a reservation for a large party of 12 at 845 and was sat at 950. How does that happen despite making a reservation? We were standing around uncomfortably for an extensive period of time. This is the 3rd birthday celebration in the last year in which this has happened. I’d recommend NOT celebrating your birthday here if you don’t want your night to start off on a bad vibe.

The service from Steve was amazing! He made this a great night out for us. The lobster pasta was a $62 mistake. The langostine lobster was flavorless and rubbery. The lil brgs were very tasty. Truly, this would have been an okay dinner at half the price. Steve saved the evening by being an incredibly attentive server with an awesome personality. Thank you so very much Steve!

The service was great but the food was not. Especially for the price. I ordered a filet and it came incredibly salty with chunks of salt on top. And I salt everything but this was too much, I couldn’t taste the flavor of the meat at all under the salt chunks. The crab cake had little flavor at all, and the sides we ordered. Asparagus and sweet corn, were extremely bland. We were tucked up in a small corner up the stairs with a couple other tables, unable to enjoy the ambiance downstairs. The bussers and SA did great to clear plates and refill waters, although one eager guy asked to clear our bread shorty after we received it- we thought to make room for our meal, but nothing came. We politely declined. For two people to order one drink, on steak, and one side each- I would’ve expected much better flavor and quality for almost $400.

I had the hot chicken and waffles. The chicken was over done and not spicy in the slightest. The waffles were doughy. My wife’s eggs Benedict were very good though.

I love STK. It is a bit on the pricey side, but the food and service NEVER disappoints! Went there for post-holiday reunion with my best friends and to celebrate a birthday. Matthew S. and Joel took extremely good care of us. They were attentive on a bustling Friday night and never kept us waiting for anything. We sat next to the DJ booth and he was friendly as well—we loved the vibe of the music. Reminds me of my hometown, Lalaland.

I will definitely be back and would come back more often if the prices were slightly lower. I am salivating thing of the cowgirl ribeye and crab cake now. Nom nom!!!

This was the worst STK I’ve ever been to. My experience there was not pleasant. Service was extremely poor, food was limited, and not delicious. This STK does not hold up to other STK standards I have ever been to. Would not recommend.

Wonderful staff. But the food took forever. When I finally received it, it was cold. I was then brought out another one, but the steak wasn’t cooked to the correct temperature. On the third try, the steak was prepared properly, but the side dishes were cold. But Emily and Kaite gave excellent service

Reservations here are almost meaningless as my date and I arrived 10 minutes early for a 7:30 reservation only to be seated an hour later. Only the quality of the food, the attention to detail from our server Dustin saved this review. Dustin took the time to read that my date has celiac disease was very knowledgeable about "cross contamination" and based his recommendations accordingly. High praise to this young man! The steaks, drinks and sides exceeded my expectations for flavor and quality!

Attempted to order the 96$ the cute waitress asked if we wanted crumbs of some type. That dish went from 96 to 297, which I paid. I felt husseled. The very 1st word out of the waitresses mouth was how transparent she was. No worries. Wrote zero on tip line and she replied "that fine" 60 seconds Jason, the manager, tells me I should have talked to him and this was childish. Then he told me to leave. I told Jason, I would leave after I finished my water. For a 500 dollars , I expected better. He didn't even ask why I wrote no tip or rip off on the Bill? I managed a restaurant 25 yrs ago and this is not how one approaches a customer who didnt complain. I never asked for a manager nor did I file a complaint. I never raised my voice nor did I express anger. I have never seen such an approach. Proper training ? The food was good and so was the service
excluding the upcharge and the poor management response.

I had the filet which was good but nothing special. I would have gotten the aged beef but my thoughts at the time were that it would be too many ounces and I don’t eat that much beef at one sitting.
Also,the plates were too big for the table. And The bread was served oddly. Only two muffin tin-like containers for 7 people?

We had such a nice dinner at STK. From the moment we walked through the door the service was amazing! The ambiance, decor and music are great. The best part was our waitress, Jordyn. She was so friendly and nice. The food was so good and I would highly recommend the warm chocolate chip cookie. It was so yummy! Jordyn. truly made our experience at STK a memorable one. We will be back soon!

Very loud ambiance we were seated in a tiny table with poor lighting jammed up against a very large plant. We ordered the ceviche, lamb, filet, tater tots, creamed spinach, and cheesecake. Food was ok, not amazing, except for the creamed spinach which was absolutely the best I’ve had in a long time.

Both the filet and the lamb came out undercooked. It was also not brought out from our server so it took us a while to get it rectified nor did he realize the issue- eventuality the busser took care of it. Our server was busy with a birthday party or something. He gave us a free dessert for the mistake which was nice.

Service was ok, not amazing, the ambiance was very loud and not particularly intimate. Overall we spent $250 on a meal for two with no alcohol (including a 20% tip). Had the bill been $100-150 I would say the restaurant was 3-4 stars, but for $250 we really expected more and the restaurant did not live up to the price- so I rated it 2 stars. We’re not likely to return.

The filet mignon was a bit over salted. The cheesecake was very basic.
The dining tables were a bit close to other tables. The DJ was completely unnecessary.
