A word from STK - Los Angeles
STK 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 textured crocodile tiles, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, while smoky mirrors allow patrons to catch a glimpse of the surroundings while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK Los Angeles is located in the heart of West Hollywood’s Restaurant Row. Executive Chef David Gussin mans the kitchen of the sexy celebrity hotspot. As anticipated, steak is the main attraction. With a female-friendly mindset, STK 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; Shrimp Rice Krispies; Sweet Corn Pudding; and Jump Lump Crab Salad.

    I marked that the noise level was quiet. That is true for MONDAY at 8pm. Other nights have always been a bit louder and more energetic but it was perfect for my meeting. I've been to STK a number of times now. The first time I visited, I didn't feel the welcoming, friendly attitude from the greeter but the ladies this round and every time after are so lovely. The bartenders and servers are always fantastic. So pleasant. You really have the perfect blend of ambiance, food, drinks, staff and scene. The penicillin that I ordered had the BEST ginger bite to it. I love ginger. It was fantastic.

    I was disappointment with so many things. I have gone here before and the one in Vegas and I'm not sure what has happened but I wouldn't recommend anyone to go here! Services was so SLOW it took over 3 hours for dinner. The waiter was rude and acted like he hated his job. Food was okay but not worth the wait or attitude. The music was so load people were yelling so that they could hear each other. Don't waste your time there are so many other options to choose from!

We made a reservation so we were taken to our table right away. Our waitress was awesome, very helpful and she made my wife's birthday memorable! We will definitely be back with friends.

    Great place for steak for the younger crowd. Went on a Sunday and the bar with the DJ was going strong. I would not recommend this place if you are looking for a traditional steak house feel... if you want that go to Mastros or Cut. The food was great, but the ambiance distracts from the food.

    Our server Rachel was amazing! Super fun and recommended some great items. We sat at the tables along the back wall. It was a little bit of a tight squeeze but still coozy. I would suggest that they replace the seat covers. For such a high end place to have rips and holes in the seats seemed weird. But overall fun time with great food!

    I booked with opentable one day before the reservation day for party of five and i put my card information just to confirm our arrival. With all that we havent been seated and served. We waited an hour in the bar and they kept on saying that they are backed up. Its not my problem they had to seat us since we had a large party reservation. I was very embarassed and ashamed from my friends who were visiting los angeles and i personally suggested to go dine in STK, but we werent treated well. They kept ignoring the situation and atlast we decided to dine to the other restaurant next to STk. I would definitly not go there again. Also i am mad at opentable, i thought we had a priority in reserving with your app.

    Lovely scenery, great steaks, stiff drinks, and conveniently attached to Bagatelle for those looking to make the night last a little longer. Sides are served family style and the steaks are consistently delicious. Happened to be there for National Champagne Day, each guest was delighted to receive a complimentary class of champagne with their meal.

    Everything was excellent except the the person who came out to bag our Leftovers ( dressed in black). After bagging our leftovers, he brings my bag out, drops it on the floor, did not apologize . I take the box out to see If any food had fallen out. He walks away with the bag,not apologizing which totally floored me! I did bring this matter up to my waitress. She took it back and rebag it.-

    Had heard the buzz about this place so decided to try it. Was seated right away. I had the filet. It was...ok. Now my wife loved hers but I found the steak a little chewy. Had the Mac and cheese and potatoes for the sides, both were pretty good. I would eat here again but wasn't "wowed" when I left. Note: A fight was about to break out in the bar area as we were leaving, classy.

    Having been to STK in Las Vegas, we were prepared for a total scene. Although that would have been fine, we were happily surprised to find STK LA a slightly more sedate dining experience. The steaks were perfectly prepared, and the sides were wonderful (except the "fries" which were pedestrian). Drinks were good, and nicely priced. The room is gorgeous. And service was just about perfect. All in all, a delightful meal -- we'll be back!

    Wasn't sure what to expect as this is a mini-corporate chain but atmosphere was fantastic as was my steak. Bar was a bit loud but dining room was very smartly decorated and noise level was perfect. Service was very attentive as well. Only feedback was that wine was not served at proper temperature - too warm. Also, although my filet migon was perfectly cooked and equally tasty, the accompanying sauces were mediocre. Would definitely go back though as these issues relatively minor compared to the overall experience.

    This is the second time I have been to STK in LA (last time was a few years back). I was impressed the first time and even years later I am happy to report that STK still delivers the same level of Service and Food quality. I am not sure if it is still considered a "hot spot" as it was a few years ago but it doesn't matter - the food should keep you coming back! I LOVE the Mac and Cheese!!!

    I was concerned after reading some negative reviews but the experience was absolutely amazing. We dined on a Saturday and when we arrived it was pretty quiet. By 8:00 the DJ started up, the lights went down and the vibe became very hip. The restaurant was packed with a good mix of couples and large groups. The food was amazing. The Chef came over to our table and we had a nice conversation. He promised to send over a couple of his signature dishes to try which he did when our other food arrived. He made use a crab ravioli that was out of this world. At the end of the meal he ordered us a complete selection of desserts which were great. I will definitely will be going back.

    Travelling from Scotland, we had been looking forward to dinner here for ages. The steak was excellent! Worth every penny and the cocktails were great too. Only thing I could gripe about is I thought the music was a little loud in the dining area, with 3 of us sat around a large table, it was tough to hear each other. Bar that, 5 stars. Can't wait to come back!

    We booked ahead for my daughter's birthday dinner. We arrived on time at 7:30 Sat eve and were escorted to the dark, empty "lounge" by the bar--not the dining room--strange, given our reservation remarks. The bar music was so loud it made it hard to converse, and the noise got exceedingly louder until it was excrutiating by 8:30-9. The waiter recommended a lobster mashed potato side with our steaks, neglecting to tell us that it wasn't $9 (like all other sides) but $35. It was tiny. They delivered the wrong steak to me and took it back but it came out raw, not rare. They took it back and it came out raw again. All steaks were so overpowered by huge pepper flakes they were almost inedible. Rest of food was meh and small portions. AVOID!!

    On Fri night ... Myself and a very special woman in my life went out for some find dining. STK is one of those HOT SPOTS period throughout the country from NYC, Miami, Vegas and specially West Hollywood. The ambiance was very trendy and sexy (Dress to impress) the food was delicious (they aren't cheap with there food or drinks) you get what you pay for. Our waiter for the evening was Carkeet was great with the professionalism and hospitality. I would recommend this spot if you really want experience the luxury life of LA (by the way it isn't that expensive here) so don't be cheap "Ha Enjoy"

We ordered 34oz rib eye steak. It was charred on the outside and Medium rear in the inside. Food was great and we had a great time. Bar tenders were great and looked as they enjoyed their job with dancing while mixing the drinks. Defiantly a place to go back and have a good time

    Our server didn't smile that much, such a shame since she was very pretty. I told her we had to be out by a certain time (about an hour from us sitting down) and she helped to facilitate that. She didn't even offer us the dessert menu and only brought the check. After that she never came back to ask if we wanted to box up our food, I had to flag down a passing busboy. Even after we signed the credit card slip, she never came back to say thank you or to send us off (like I saw other servers did).

    This was my second visit at STK and as I remembered, the food & service was exceptional! My usual from now on will have to be the fresh oysters, petit filet, creamed corn, roasted potatoes, & broccolini. We also ordered the truffle fries, creamed spinach, & double baked potato.. but they didnt do it as much as the other previous sides had. I would also recommend the crab salad as a good starter. Steak is a must have. Service is amazing at as they certainly live up to their reputable name. The music was a upbeat and would feature a remix of top 40. My friend mentioned it sounded like a Korean boy band version.. which I found delightful as I could recognize the tunes. STK I will be back, & believe my friends I brought will be too!

Our waiter was hilarious, but professional and took care of us all night. My boyfriend ordered the Porterhouse, which was cooked and seasoned perfectly. I got the petite filet with the red wine sauce, which is hands down the best sauce I've ever had. Overall, it was an amazing evening.

    The restaurant was nicely done with its modern and simple decor. One large room for dining with booths all around. Another with the bar, which has high and low seating and a DJ. Great music. Great vibe. It took a while to be seated, so had a drink at the bar. When we were seated, service was great. Food was better than average. Saw a couple of basketball players such as Kris Humphries so that was cool.

    Dined on 7/25/2014
    I ordered off the over-priced Dine LA menu and had a petite filet that I am pretty sure was from the grocery store. My husband ordered a regular NY not on the Dine LA menu and it was better, but not by much. I asked for medium rare (as I do when I am eating at am upscale steak restaurant) and it was cooked solid, totally brown on the inside. The staff was wonderful, so attentive and nice. But I just feel like a little too much time is spent on making the restaurant look like a club and less on making the food live up to it's price.
