LB Steak - Santana Row Ratings and Reviews
Decided to treat my hubby and I, to a nice dinner to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the day he asked me to marry him. I couldn't have picked a better place!
We arrived early, so we had a drink at the bar. Heads up, you'll need to close your tab before going to your table. At the time of our reservation, we were seated and since I noted it was an anniversary, we were given a congratulations card. Very nice touch!
Where we met our waiter, he was very nice and engaging. As he realized it was an anniversary, he provided us with another card wishing us a happy anniversary! He was great! The service was phenomenal!
So the most important... the food! Well worth EVERY cent! The best part, outside of the food, was the sample dessert tray to celebrate our anniversary!
Thank you, LB Steak! We'll be back!
I brought the head of a major Asian venture capital firm so that he would think of future business or personal events at LB. Per my request, Kelcy was our server and she did an excellent job providing discrete service while providing light conversation to break up the serious business discussion where needed. Her suggestions on wines were excellent.
Paolo also provided us with his usual professionalism and creativity on cocktails.
It was an awesome experience here at LB. My husband and I ordered the Tomahawk and it was delicious. I totally recommend it and we ordered the oysters and calamari which was also very good. We celebrated our valentines and anniversary here and had a awesome experience with the waitress and food.
Excellent steaks. Pricey but worth it. The shrimp appetizer was excellent and a real show piece. MY steak, ordered medium, came out rather rare and was immediately replaced and was delicious. Excellent cocktails but the best part was the great service, which was very professional and pleasant but not in the least bit stuffy.
Usually have a good steak here, but this time boneless ribeye had a bunch of tendons in it, that made it impossible to cut. Another annoying thing was the 4% surcharge on the bill, which I had not seen before, and was not mentioned on the menu. Asked waiter, and they said it was to enable "living wage" and restaurant decided to add it because it would be cheaper than increasing prices. What? Either raise prices or mention the surcharge on the menu. Just checked their web page, and it's still not mentioned.
Delicious food. Service started out good, but when they became busy with bigger parties our service suffered. The big parties seemed to get all the attention, bigger tips I suppose. In the end our server brought my husband a special dessert for his birthday, he just over heard me wish him a happy birthday, the dessert was awesome and they did not charge us.
The atmosphere is very nice and in the beautiful Santana Row. The staff is very attentive and friendly.
My fiancé and I order oysters and corn bread as appetizers which were amazing. We drank Mosco Mules which were packed with ice and a bit on the weak side.
Our main course was the high end filet with mushrooms and Mac n cheese. Unfortunately my fiancé’s steak was over cooked which ruined it for her but mine was perfect. Lol But the manager was made aware of it and she apologized for it. The manager comped the steak and the waiter comped a dessert For us. That was very nice of them.
Besides the over cooked steak and overly iced drinks everything tastes amazing. The restaurants was busy that night but the staff really went out of their way to make the best out of our situation.
Steak and sides were very good. Three sides would be plenty for two, we ordered four. The twice baked potato and mushrooms were best. We got a 12oz NY strip and 16oz bone-in Kansas City NY strip. For $8 more, the 16oz was totally worth it. And the gratis chocolate dessert with orange sherbet was truly amazing
Once again, where to start? First of all, I do not believe if a steakhouse cares to age their own meat that they choose the ribeye and the cut to age. There would be much more bang for the buck aging the New York strip. Anyway, I tried the 35 day, dry-aged ribeye and I was disappointed. First of all, dry aging did add a bit of tang but that was lost in the choice of the cut. BION, the chef cut the ribeye super thin! What on earth? A $52 steak cut like 'Sizzler'? Even worse, the waiter asked me how I would like it cooked. I did not know there was a choice. There is either 'well done with lot's of catchup' or medium rare, right? (Do read Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential" chapter on "Save for Well Done".) Anyway, I made it abundantly clear that it should be medium rare on the rare side. Guess what, my $52 steak arrived medium (on the bad side toward well done). I promptly sent it back while my wife enjoyed her fish (she's a pescatarian). Now, 15 minutes later, my dinner arrived. Note to chefs, if you slice the meat thin, then, even when you pay attention and cook to order, the first and last 25% of a cut will be well done and the center 50% may be the requested temperature. Bottom line, I have enjoyed LB Steak many times and they have been basically satisfactory in the past. I normally do not order ribeye as I can generally cook it my self just as well but, as it was their top of the menu, I thought I would give it a try. That was a mistake. (Pun not intended).
We came for my dad's bday. Definitely would recommend 35-day aged rib eye and cowboy (22oz, big enough for 2 people). Great sides are mushroom dish, spinach gratin, truffle fries and pork belly. Environment was nice. There were other families dining, people on dates. Noise level was medium, not noisy. Service was great. Our server checked on us through the meal, water constantly refilled, wine poured etc. We'll be back for family dinners or just date night. Certainly worth going.
The array of cuts offers something for everyone. A true steak as it required no sauce!
The wine list is extensive but not overwhelming. Quite accessible with a broad range of prices and styles.
The service is attentive, friendly, and understanding. The server listened to us before speaking and checked in at reasonable intervals to monitor our progress.
A great place for an intimate dinner or to catch up with a group of friends.
