Diner Reviews
  • "Dined at this restaurant on a Thursday. $10 valet parking near the door. The interior is pleasant and more colorful than many Downtown restaurants occupying older buildings. After being seated upstairs for dinner, reasonably quick service and drinks followed. The stage for "OKness" was immediately set by a initial serving of bread that might have been sliced from a grocery-store baguette: tasteless and underwhelming. A disappointing shrimp cocktail with mealy, granular shrimp followed. The salads as a whole were better, especially the Greystone salad, but were served on warm plates. The steaks were not bad (a la Oscar, NY Strip), but the entree prices with sides are expensive and didn't redeem a ho-hum meal. No need to return here."

  • "Good service and good food. Outdoor seating is great but inside feels a little claustrophobic."

  • "Went with husband and Dad on Father's Day. Once a year they like a good, albeit expensive steak, sides extra. Love Donovan's and Ruth's Chris. Tried this place for free entree for Dad. They each got bone-in filet, one boneless filet. Meat was tender and well flavored inside, but missed that sizzle you get at the other places. They seemed to have sat a while. Sides were corn and mushrooms, both great and enough for 3, but the mashed potatoes were a watery bore. Also got apps - lump crab cake was tasty but more bread filler than lump crab. Kind of mushy. Wedge salad was ok. Bread was a bore too. A good sourdough please? Weird music - 70's pop - wrong place for that. Service great. Hostess, wait staff, manager, all terrific."

  • "Food was wonderful, fish done perfectly. Good Drinks and good wine list. Only fault was our food didn't come out at the same time...awkward. Pretty pricey...will go back again!"

  • "Although our waitress was good about getting everything delivered to our time in a timely manner it was all business with her. She came across as stiff no personality. That might have been because of the number of tables she had to cover, not sure. Over all she got our food to us and it was great!"

  • "We love to go to Greystone Steakhouse whenever we're downtown. The food is great and I love the ambience and service."

  • "I have been before and had a great experience. This time, while the service was very good, the food -- both in taste and presentation -- was fair at best, and the air conditioning was not working well so it was not comfortable. "

  • "Very good steakhouse in the gaslamp district. Busy steetlife with outdoor seating or cozy indoor seating on two levels. "

  • "It was truly a great experience overall! The food was great and although a bit pricey you got a lot of food for what you paid, unlike some expensive restaurants. A great atmosphere and very friendly and fun service. We had a 6pm reservation on a Friday and were seated immediately on the patio. A great night with great food at a fantastic restaurant!"

  • "I had chicken florentine, it was pretty good. But my boyfriend had a streak and it wasn't that great. Especially, because the restaurant is known for steaks. Flemings steaks were better."

  • "You get what you pay for - and you if you have wine, etc. plan on paying about $75-80 per person including tip - but the food is fantastic. No three star, under $20 per person restaurant but this place steps up and knocks it out of the park. Greystone is consistently a step above the rest of the Gaslamp's cuisine. Steak, Italian pasta, Elk, Buffalo with port wine reduction, fine wine list - its all here."

  • "The service was good, but the filet mignon was nothing special. There are much better places to go for a nice steak - Donovans, Ruth Chris. The prices were high I thought for what you got."

  • "It wasn't horrible but the dining room area for the tables for two was very very small and crowded home space for wader to get by table waitstaff was wonderful Barcinas outside seen looked great inside the restaurant really not much ambience or ROM and now I'm much to it"

  • "Food was ok- but the waiter Dennis was so annoying checked in so much- he never gave you a chance to look at the menu. Other staff was fine. He ruined the evening."

  • "Typical steak house with nothing special to report. Good quality meat, same dishes you find on any steak house menu, good wine list. Service was fast efficient and friendly. Most interesting aspect of the place it the tiered lay out. Why not recommend it? These days a restaurant has to show more imagination for it to be recommended. Greystone is by no means bad - but in the category of steak houses nothing special what so ever."

  • "Really a great meal... excellent service... shared a cheese board and the Greystone Salad. I had a bone-in Filet ala Oscar (Lump Crabmeat and Bernaise) my wife the Buffalo Tenderloin... cooked to perfection... great wine list too... will return!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Service and atmosphere great. Filets were so-so.. Seafood platter was pretty good. Prices somewhat reasonable, but overall, the food was not first class."

  • "We had an early dinner, so the restaurant was uncrowed and quiet, with nice Jazz . The wine and craft beer list was impressive. Our favorite dish was the Elk Chop. Very tender and flavorful, served with Mashed Potatoes and a wonderful sauce. If you ever wanted to try Elk, this is the place. The Buffalo Tenderloin was very good. The Blue Point Oysters were delicious and very fresh. I love that the bread they serve was hot and yeasty and the butter was spreadable. The Greystone Salad was good, but the Butter Lettuce was boring. I think more exciting greens would be much better. Gelato and espresso ended our meal. I can't wait to come back to Greystone and I like that they are a local restaurant not a chain. The best service, too!"

  • "It was a holiday and we couldn't get into any of our favorite places. Grey stone had room so we took our Oregon friends. The 2 filets were so tough we couldn't eat them. They said they had been having trouble with the purveyor. That was an understatement. When they charge this much the steaks should be tender."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Our name was not on the reservation list and we had to wait. The noise, the crowding, mugginess all I could put up with but for our waiter's actions. I order my filet mignon medium rare and when my entrée was brought it was well done. I was appalled that after my initial corner cut on my steak and showing the waiter that it was not medium rare he would ask me to split it in half to make sure. When my meal was brought up again and I cut the steak again in a corner and informed the waiter it was perfect but he wanted me to cut it in the middle to make sure. He insisted on my cutting the middle and my husband stepped in and finally he relented. I would not recommend a restaurant that questions its customers on what they have order."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The steak was good - but not $50.00 good. A little fatty. Server said the sides were family size so we shared - barely enough for two people. The did let us bring our own wine which was great. Unfortunately it is also a little crowded - table done have much room by the time you have a drink, water, food, sides, bread and plates. There are no notes that the Valet is actually down the street at their sister restaurant and anyone who has gone through the gas lamp at night with all the one way streets know how hard it is to park at night."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Food was delicious. When we first got there we did not have to wait that long for our table. We were waiting by the bar and the bartender took a little while to help us out but still very friendly. Our waiter was consistent and constantly refilled my water."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "After trying to get reservations to some of our favorite restaurants for Valentine's Day, we settled on Greystone as it had open tables at reasonable times. Now I know why. Our table was just at the top of the stairs and in a high traffic area, they didn't have the wine we selected off their wine list and the food was only so-so. Since steak is supposed to be their specialty, I ordered a filet mignon. It was overdone and the Bernaise sauce was tasteless. The only positive I have to say is that the service was very goo."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Noisy, cramped tables, waiters overworked (or cooking requests were reversed). But the place was packed; big groups of business related. No better than a steak chain"

  • "I had a wonderful time at Greystone. Amazing food, and beautiful ambience. Steaks very delicious and cooked to perfection. The servier's recommendations were great. We'll be back!"

  • "The food was pretty good. Little surprised at the portion size of the potatoes but we'll get over it. The location and atmosphere also great. Service was something you'd find at a quickie breakfast spot. No chit chat. No specials. No set up for a great experience. That was a shame because that would've made the whole experience rated higher."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The hostesses were nice. The server was competent but no personality. I don't know if it was because of all the hype, but the experience left alot to be desired. Average steak at well above average prices. The highpoint of the night was the tiramisu. With all of the restaurants downtown, I doubt this one will get a second visit."

  • "Four of us went there for restaurant week, and we LOVED it! The service was great , the food was perfectly prepared, and the environment was fantastic. We got a discounted price because of restaurant week, but we took a look at the regular menu while we were there. It had a great selection, and the wine list was huge! It cost about the same as other Steak Houses in Downtown, so be prepared to spend a bit of money for a dinner and a bottle of wine. I will definitely be going back and would gladly recommend this to anyone."

  • "I was in town and it happened to be restaurant week. I had a great meal way below their normal prices. The crab cake was awesome, as well as the sea bass. Waiter was wonderful and helpful. Introduced me to my 'NEW' favorite vodka Ultima ........ it was smooth as silk. This Kettle One girl is now a Ultima girl. Sat outside on the patio which was very nice. The indoor dining was a little big loud for my ideal setting."

  • "We drove down from Orange County to take client's to a GREAT steakhouse. They first brought the wrong appetizer, overcooked one of the steaks, one dinner was cold and was re-heated and too dry to eat. I ordered the lobster bisque soup. It was DARK brown in color and looked more like gravy than soup. It had no lobster and was AWFUL. The waiter asked me if I had been to a restaurant "Blue Points" down the street and said they made it the same way! It was an embarrassing evening and I will never return. A nightmare of an experience!!!!!!"

  • "It was pretty easy to impress my date at Greystone. Starting from the hostesses and the bar lounge for cocktails before our meal. I started with there Lobster bisque soup and my date started with there signature greystone salad. For my entree I choice the surf n turf(excellent recommendation) overall delicious food great romantic atmosphere. I highly recommend this spot."

  • "This has become my regular spot. It never ceases to amaze me. Every thing I have ordered is wonderful. My favorite would have to be the ribeye its soo perfectly flavored. Their meats are only flavored with salt and Pepper which is the way it should be because it brings out all the natural flavors instead of putting annoverpowering around of seasons. Not bbc.co only is the food amazing but the staff is fantastic. The employees are very friendly and professional. This is definitely my favorite spot."
