Typical steakhouse faire. The Mac and cheese tasted like it was out of a box, our steak was undercooked (which the manager remedied) and dinner was a bit cold. Our server was tuned out and rarely checked on us. Mediocre and not at all what we expected for the price. The onion rings and truffle fries were excellent!

We had to sit outside and that was not favorable choice. If we sat inside there was a 90 minute max table time. Not cool!

The service was great! Very friendly and helpful. The food was okay for the value. The wagyu filet needed seasoning. The seared salmon was nice. Child’s cheeseburger a bit dry and didn’t come with onion, lettuce, or tomato. The desserts (child’s sundae, creme brûlée, lava cake) were okay. Tasted pre-made. Creme brûlée caramelized crust was soft. Lava cake was pudding inside…no lava. Overall it was a decent experience. Ambiance and service were AWESOME!! The food and value was pretty good.

Food was excellent as always. No specials, and a bit limited on seafood options right now. Outdoor seating had very good social distancing and was comfortable, but a bit windy this particular evening. Not all tables have heaters, and the heaters can't be moved, so make sure to ask for the right table if you'll need heat.

Santana Row is an awesome setting for a restaurant. We went to LB for a birthday. We got Tartare, 2 different salads, a bottle of wine, the “cowboy” and their burger. I would put it a grade above Outback. The wine was great. Service was wonderful. Everything else , for the price, was ok. Compared to TBones in Vegas or McPhees in Templeton, LB was very average. Go there for the ambiance, people watching, or drinks but not for value.

Food, service and ambience were great. Very warm cozy atmosphere. Excellent bone marrow. All the sauces were great for your steak. Had the dry aged rib eye which was delicious. Next time will try the cowboy steak which is a bone-in rib eye.

My partner and I ordered the signature tomahawk as our main. For sides, we chose the lobster bisque, scallops, mashed potatoes, and mushrooms. We also got to try the green peppercorn and red wine sauces. Here was our takeaway:

Tomahawk - 5/10 it wasn’t special and it was under seasoned. They give you salt to dip or sprinkle your steak with, but the steak was underwhelming at best. It was not trimmed properly and lacked the aged umami-ness we were hoping for. For $120 it did not satisfy my tastebuds.

Lobster bisque - 9/10 delicious, but would have benefited from a lemony gremolata to give it some texture and bright notes. The lobster shines through and the seafood stock is great.

Scallops - 10/10 literally the best thing we had. Buttery, salty, savory perfection. Order 10

Mashed potatoes - 2/10 arrived cold and was disappointing. Small amount for the price.

Mushrooms - 2/10 these were fried enoki mushrooms which was such an odd accompaniment to American style steak. It was squishy and rubbery and weird and we did not enjoy that.

Green peppercorn - 1/10 don’t do it

Red wine bordelaise- 6/10 yummy but not mind blowing

I had the 3 valleys Merlot and it was high in tannins and didn’t drink well with the steak. I kept burping (ew) and had heartburn after the meal.

Not the greatest experience for the $300 we spent on dinner, we will not be returning for the tomahawk, but my partner did enjoy his old fashioned very much.

From start to finish our meal and dining was amazing. Our server Travis was great at recommending dishes as well as wine. The only issue we had at no fault of the restaurant, is we were seated outdoors and someone kept driving around (pretty much in circles) blasting music at an obnoxious level. But other than that everything was great.

I tools friends the to have a goodbye dinner for someone moving back to Australia. He wanted the best steak as one of his last meals here. I remembered another friend bringing me here for my birthday dinner and having just that. Or server was very friendly and once we ordered it didn’t take long for our food to arrive. The steaks were perfectly cooked and very tender and juicy. We all had the potato which was also good. Some people might think it’s a bit pricey, but to me it’s well worth the money. Will be going back again!

We where celebrating our Son’s SJSU graduation. Our server was very knowledgeable about the wagyu beef and was so informative. He was so pleasant and attentive to our needs through out dinner. Truely a fine experience. This was our family of 4 first time visiting LB Steak and it lived up to our expectations. We felt that the pandemic safe practices where follow and we felt safe. Food was extraordinary, we will return back. Thanks to our server Paolo for adding to our special day.

We were outside and it was cold and winding. The staff lit the heaters and that helped. Street noise was not bad.
Inside is opening up more now to 50% which should help.

Overall, it was the usual excellence in dining experience at LB. Started off with GM Mark setting up the ambience by introducing himself to my guests, the service staff was very attentive and as usual, drinks by my favorite bartender Paolo was awesome.

Very good business dinner experience was enjoyed by all.

Had the time he steak. Is was 1/2 inch thick, over cooked, and flavorless. Denny's likely would not have served it. This marks a steady decline in the quality of LB Steak that we noted well prior to COVID. This Will be our last time.

Great service at LB Steak and they definitely know how to make steaks as my Filet Mignon was perfect. My only comment would be is...we ordered Brussel Sprouts, Mashed Potatoes and Mushrooms for our sides. The Brussels and Mashed were great but the Mushrooms were a bit bland. I wish they had more flavor or sautéed in something. Other than that, service and rest of our dinner was great!

Took my two Aunts here for birthday lunch. My Aunt enjoyed her steak but wanted a plain baked potato with sour cream. Not on the menu and not able to accommodate her request. My husband also had a steak and wanted a plain baked potato as well. My Chicken sandwich was awful. We both ordered a glass of wine and the pour was like something you get at a wine tasting. Expensive, music was way too loud and no one in the dining room.
