LB Steak - Santana Row Ratings and Reviews
Dissapointing for a steakhouse. I ordered a filet mignon and it was so bland and chewy. My friend ordered the rib eye and it was over charred and looked malnourished. The above indicates that they weren’t cooked correctly. If you are steakhouse you should know how to cook steak. Mac and cheese was so watery I could barley scoop it up. You pay for the ambiance and location. For a steakhouse it’s not worth it.
Let me say at he outset that the service we received was attentive without being intrusive and our server was very nice. He noticed that it was my nephew's birthday and brought him a complimentary dessert. The appetizer we ordered (Pork Belly) was quite delicious, the bread was fresh and tasty. My nephew enjoyed his rib eye and twice baked potato and the truffle fries were delicious. The sautéed mushrooms however, were not nearly warm enough and they were terribly under seasoned. Finally, my steak. I ordered 6 oz. filet mignon medium rare. When it arrived, it was well done. The server saw my face and both he and a manager I presume came over. When I said the steak was overdone, the manager told me to cut right down the middle to see if the steak was medium rare in the middle, it wasn't. My steak was whisked away and very soon another took it's place. The manager then asked me to cut down the middle again. I did and I said the steak was fine, even though, it was more medium, rather than medium rare, I decided not to send it back again. I am just a bit surprised the a restaurant that is named LB Steak would have a tough time cooking a steak properly and I say this with full understanding that filet mignon is not the easiest steak to cook because it is so lacking in fat and is so very tender. I would like to close with again stating that the service was excellent.
While they ended up comping two of our dishes, and tried to remedy their mistakes, I'd rather have had some better food instead. The cornbread app that came out did not match the description at all and was very dry and bland. Although my dry aged ribeye was rather good, my date's filet mignon came out burnt and the replacement came out overcooked. For a place with a rather focused/limited menu, I expected much better focus on quality.
We’ve always loved LB Steak, but they were off the mark this time. I took 3 friends to celebrate a birthday and service and food was not up to the usual excellent standard. One of my guests received her filet cold and without the side dish she had ordered. We finally got the attention of another server and asked for our waiter. They made things right, but by then the rest of us were nearly half through our meals. The halibut was good, but not great.
Just not the great experience we expect.
Absolutely wonderful! Great for a special date but be prepared for the bill. It would be very impressive to entertain business associates but again, be prepared. We had a great ZD Chard ($100) that was really good. Service was perfect, kept our wine glasses from being empty, and didn't bother us as many servers do. My steak (22oz porterhouse) was properly cooked medium rare with a bone my dog is loving. My wife had halibut that disappeared right before my eyes! She never even offered me a taste! The brussel sprouts were even good. The twice baked potato was very large so we split it and still took some home. The creamed spinach gratin was somewhat disappointing as it really didn't have any visual cream of anything or gratin of anything. In fact, I sent the first one back as it looked like sauteed spinach. The second one looked pretty much the same but I kept it anyway and it was tasty. Although the place was busy at least we could carry on a nice conversation. There were a few people at the bar, just the other side of our table/divider that were a bit loud but not too bad. I've already recommended LB's to three people and it's only been 2 days.
It was 20th anniversary since my family moved to Si-Valley area.
I celebrated it with my wife and son.
Appetizer, we ordered Oyster, Tuna Tartar and Steak Tartar.
Steak Tartar was very good. Particular source. It was excellent.
Oyster is fine. Not bad. Creamy.
Tuna Tartar is so-so. The source is weak.
Main, we ordered Aged Beef, Fillet and Wagyu.
Wagyu was good. Particular Salt is good. Tender.
Aged Beef was very good. Some sweetness, Juicy and rich taste.
Red-wine source with a little bit blue cheese is perfect.
Fillet wasn’t cooked well. We ordered “Medium Rare”.
But ¼ portion part of meat was “Medium”. Almost no red area.
¾ portion was ok. Due to that, it wasn’t so juicy.
For the wine, we ordered one bottle of Salmon Rose Champagne.
The reason was we ordered some seafood.
Overall, it wasn’t so bad even with the meat.
If possible, I would like the restaurant to have “Piper Rose Champagne”.
We had Thanksgiving dinner, outrageous price of $70 per person, high price wine extra. But...each of the four courses were exquisite. the kale salad with almonds, cranberries, shavings of smoked Gouda was perfect. The butternut squash soup with crime frais was the best I ever ever had. We had prime rib instead of turkey and it too was great. The pumpkin pie also complex, not overly sweet, was supurb.
Decent steak house with good cut options. Cooking was accurate. Steaks were good but nothing to write home about especially for the price. Wine selection was decent but again generally over priced for the relative quality. Choice of aperitif and digestif were limited to low and mid-range options. For example, the best bourbons on hand were Basil Hayden and Woodford Reserve. Decent bourbons they are but a place like this should have higher end options.
Decor was nice. The only issue I had was that it was quite noisy as the bar is in the same space as the dining area and when there is a game on it got quite noisy... almost disruptive.
I went with my wife for our 27th anniversary dinner, and it was a great choice. Friendly and professional staff, the food was awesome, a bit pricy but worth it, loved the appetizers, the service was fast. We also really liked the ambience and noise level was acceptable, location is superior I highly recommend it, go 15 minutes early parking is not simple.
This is a great place for a good steak dinner. There is a nice variety to the selection of cuts and quality. Side dishes are good; not spectacular, Service is great. I always enjoy dining here. It is certainly not an inexpensive menu so one needs to be prepared for about $100/person excluding wine or spirits if you order the better cuts of meat. On the worst occasion the meat was satisfactory and the best occasions; wonderful.
We must have caught them on an off night, twice baked potato was really dry...possibly overcooked, steak was a bit on the dry side and mostly tasteless ( filet cooked med-rare)
Service was great as usual, knowledgeable waitress who had great wine recommendations. The food was just a huge miss for me this time. For 5 people the bill was just under $400 ( with tip) seemed over priced for the value. I think I still recommend just because of the customer service, and there are tons of places to go in the area pre and post dinner.
-DO make reservations
-DONT get the filet.
If you are looking for a steak restaurant that does not go too far classic, this would be your choice. If you have a table with 4 people, 48oz Tomahawk Chop at $120 is great choice. First of all, its presentation is great and even overwhelming. Also, its price ends up to be reasonable for 4 people steak dinner . Selection of wine is not very great but adequately well done for business dinner.
I have never been so disappointed in a dining experience as I was at LB steakhouse. I was shocked at the lack of attention from the staff, and the lack of flavor in the food. It took 15 minutes for our waiter to even come to the table, another 15 to receive drinks without ice, another 30 to receive unseasoned food, and by the time we received salt and pepper (which we had to ask for several times because they kept forgetting) our food was completely cold. Our meal was $160, which we would have been happy to spend on quality service and food, and we didn’t get either one. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.
A great steakhouse! Food was amazing, with a great wine list and ambiance. The service was stellar. Our server was Kelsey and she recommended perfect choices for our taste and occasion. She made the birthday celebration extra special. Definitely will be back!
