Service was exceptional. Our server was extremely knowledgeable, not do over baring yet attentive. Food was good. Sides were amazing. We have the bok choy, mushrooms, mac n cheese, and curry cauliflower. I could have just eaten sides and left a very happy girl. I got the filet and it was a little over cooked. Flavor was still good. I had a bite of my friends Rib eye and it was AMAZING. So good. I will definitely go with the Rib eye next time. Overall great experience. I would come back again
Great time and they went above and beyond to make our anniversary special
It was quiet, delicious, and I loved my wine.
We arrived at 5:26 for a 5:30 dinner reservation. In spite of that, we had to wait about ten minutes for our table to be ready. When we were led into the dining room, it was completely empty. Odd, but okay.
We were greeted promptly and given dinner menus, a wine list, and a drink menu. We ordered drinks when our server returned with water. Our drinks were still not ready when our server returned to take our order. Our salad drrived about ten minutes later, and we were half-way through that before our drinks arrived.
My drink had muddled cranberries and Hendricks and my wife's had pomengranate juice and japanese whisky; as a result, they looked similar. The server switched the drinks by mistake, giving my wife the Hendricks and me the whisky. We asked twice if he was certain of the order because neither drink tasted right. We sorted it out on our own, but the drinks still did not taste quite right. When we notified the server, he did not offer to re-make the drinks.
The food was fabulous, as always. Steaks cooked to perfection with excelent texture and flavor. The sides (maitake mushrooms and truffle mac & cheese) were equally excellent. Wine service was good...I appreciiate the fact that the server left enough space after each pour for the "nose" of the wine to engage the senses.
Apart from disapointing bar service and irritatingly loud music, the experience was first rate. I'm sure we'll go back. When we do, we'll be a little more assertive if things don't work out well with our drinks and we'll definitely ask to have the sound system turned down.
valentine’s day! the set menu for the evening was not worth the price sorry to say
We went there for Valentine’s Day. The food was really good. Very attentive service.
Generally a good experience. We were there on Valentine’s Day. It was a little loud and the service was a little slow at the beginning but they found the right rhythm as the evening went on. Food was excellent and the servers were very helpful and nice. They don’t open the wine at the table though, which may be ok usually but if I’m ordering very high end wine, I would prefer that they open in front of me so I can observe the corkage.
Everything was good, but not quite to the level I'd expect ... especially for the price ($100+ per person).
The amount of food was disappointingly low and I'm neither big nor young. The quality of each course was good, but nothing was fantastic.
I'm not a hard-core foodie but someone needs to add just a bit of "wow!" to their offering to justify the price.
Awesome food and cool surprises
Great food, service, ambience. Love the Read Option
Upon entering the restaurant we were at first disappointed until we realized the pub is separate from the actual sit down restaurant.
Our waiter was amazing, he was personable and made wonderful suggestions for drink and menu. We asked about tasting menu and he immediately ask Chef if it was possible. Luckily for us it was a yes and we were delighted with 8 excellent courses. There wasn't one course that was just okay like sometimes happens. We loved everything presented. We were treated to table side cutting of the steak course.
My friends also enjoyed every signature cocktail they tried.
Went here on a Friday evening for a friend's birthday, there were three of us and had a really good time. Our waiter Patrick was awesome and overall serve was awesome. Ordered appetizers (crispy pork croquettes, Ahi tuna tartare), two entrees of steaks (shared it), three side dishes, two deserts and three bottles of wine. I thought the steak (prime dry-aged NY bone-in cut and Wagyu, med-rare) was just okay and liked the Brussels sprouts side dish the best...maybe it was just me.
Celebration of new job
Excellent restaurant, very good steaks and other entrees are available for those who want something else. Good wine list. Staff is attentive and professional. Overall very good.
Service and food was exceptional for my 75th. birthday dinner. However a $286 dinner is a bit overpriced. $150 would have been more appropriate for what we ate.
My husband and I went there for date night. The service and food were both fantastic. We will definitely be back again
I enjoy the atmosphere and food.
The size of Appetizers are appropriate.
And prime rib is excellent.
Finally I took a cheesecake.
It also delicious!
Excellent steak, delicious wine selection, very good and knowledgable waiter, the only tip I would give is I prefer my asparagus to be whole, a bowl of pre cut feels like syems and pieces
Great food and wonderful service.
After three years (to the day) of dining at this Mina outpost, I've become a bit of on expert on the menu. They've made the appropriate changes throughout the years, weathered management and exec chef changes. The steak staff has seen it all, and always maintained the utmost quality and service. It remains my favorite place to dine across the world.
Allow me to recommend the famous Mina ahi tuna tartare as a starter. The bone-in New York from Allen Brothers for the main course. The cocktails are second to none, the current special Kaizen made with the their own personal barrel of Sonoma Distillery's finest.
Great service. Steak cooked to perfection.
Way - and I mean WAY over-priced. Presentation A+. Service A+. Food = C- Cost / value = very poor. 55$ Steak was served cold. Didn't fix it. Didn't apologize. Oh and btw - no views of the stadium.
My wife and I had dinner there last Friday 4 August. Greeter at front door was very nice, Ryan our waiter was great, Tuna Tartare was good, creamed spinach was ok, the bone-in NY steak was horrible. The steak had gristle and was really tough, probably the worse steak we have ever had, including grocery store steak. QC must have been asleep that night to let a steak like that get through. My wife and I shared the dinner, had a bottle of wine and two drinks and the bill was $270 incl. tax w/o tip, big bill, little value.
Amazing service - amazing food - one of my favorites in the Bay Area
Excellent service and food, always a family favorite
Top Service, Food Quality excellent!
Very good wine recommemdation.
Food and service was amazing!!
Best stake in the area (and even further out) - perfectly cooked and high quality meat - also very good espresso
An expensive place for the average person. With no appetizers and dessert, we spent
around $170 with tax and tip,
Always a great meal here with an extensive wine list as well.
Outstanding wines, steaks that are out of this world, and they brought a delicious birthday treat for my husband on the house! Definitely will be a repeat customer.
Too. Expensive and too noisy.
Steak was near perfect. Cream spinach was too salty.yummy for the mac n cheese.. It was our daughter's civil wedding and we celebrated just for the family. Thank you for the dessert for the occasion.
Service was exceptional.
I hadn't been here in a while and after going this time I remembered why I hadn't come in a while. Me and my dining partner asked for 2 filets medium rare. Both were cooked differently: one was over and one was under. Its a STEAK place! If you can't cook steak properly well then, that's not great is it? We were one of two groups total there on a Friday night and our food took over 25 minutes to arrive. Can't imagine why. Very sub par and for the price, just don't.....
This was my second time at Bourbon Steak and my date's first time. We had an OUTSTANDING time! Our server actually remembered me from when I was there previously... about 6 months previously! The service was outstanding, the food amazing, and my date even had an $85 glass of excellent French wine. We also enjoyed a great whiskey flight. We'll definitely be back!
Excellent steak (again) accompanied with good service and tasty wines, what more can you ask?
I was VERY impressed by the food and staff at Bourbon. From the host at entry, to our lovely waiter Jansen, to the other servers. Everyone went out of their way to ensure that our meal and experience was top notch. They all shook the birthday person's hand and Jansen made sure that none of the food contained my many allergy triggering foods. Steak was perfectly prepared, crispy tuna poppers were a tasty little starter.
My only critiques. Lobster Pot Pie (LPP) amazing flavor, great lobster. I would just mention to people that it's not as big as the pot it's served in. It's a decadent meal, but not enormous.
The valet parking, so our meal lasted longer than 2 hours, we had cocktails, appetizers, LPP, steak, after dinner drinks and dessert. Surely, after spending $300 on food, drinks and tip the valet parking fee should be waived, no? A truly great meal never ends in two hours! And it was indeed a great meal.
Dessert wise, my strawberry cheesecake was good. The complimentary birthday cake item was ok. Not sure if I was full from the rest of the meal, but I didn't finish either and that never happens!
very good food - the guys said the steaks were outstanding! the service was excellent, all in all a very positive experience for a Business dinner.
