We are in town for a conference again. Last time we came here too. The food and service are both exceptional. I had a small steak and baked potato and both were perfect. The others meals were great too. Wine suggestion was great not pricey but a excellent red. Can't wait till next visit. Well done.
Excellent!!! Great time and great atmosphere. We had a wonderful time.
For a sunday night, service was slow, and my steak was overcooked. Was a table for 1. So im sure I didn't overwhelm her.
Ribeye and lobster tails perfectly prepared, an excellent martini, the best wait staff and attentive valet parking, made date night ultimately successful. Almost zero whining and begging later in the evening.
Very good service and our waiter was exceptional. Enjoyed our evening.
Lou & Mickey's is the perfect place for a business meal. We showed up early for our reservation with two extra people. Despite a one hour wait in place at the time, we were seated promptly. The food, service and ambiance were excellent. It is steps from the convention center which makes Lou & Mickey's a must. Thank you for multiple excellent meals while visiting San Diego. We will be back.
The best New York steak in San Diego
Initial service was very poor, our table got lost in the shuffle when the waiter covering went on break. We waited over 20 min to have someone even take our drink order, then another 20+ min to receive them. Once our assigned waiter was back from break, he worked extra hard to make up for the rough start. They ended up comping our drinks for that round, and the rest of our service was phenomenal! Dartanian was a fantastic waiter and we ended up having a wonderful night!
Relaxed atmosphere with good staff. The food was fine.
Food was underwhelming, my mahi mahi was a bit dry and had minimal garnish , very plain dish. Service was slow due to a large party.
It has an active charm in a busy nightlife area.
Food was good ,service was awesome,me my wife was really impress with our server. We were in town for the weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. Had a good time thank you.
Very close to the convention center and fit into our schedule perfectly. Delicious seafood and cocktails!
As usual, excellent food. The 14 oz bone in filet mignon should be on everyone's bucket list. The restaurant is always BUSY and loud however the food typically makes up for the noise. Small issues with the wait staff was noise related (they messed up a dessert order) but they fixed the error quickly. If you are looking for a quiet place to propose, this is likely not the spot. However if you are looking for a loud place to break up you have come to the right place.
Delicious food. My husband loved the food and drinks. Thank you.
This restaurant is in an ideal location in the Gaslamp District. It has a nice outdoor sitting area and a good atmosphere inside but unfortunately those are the only high notes. I had an aged Rib Eye and the sides that were recommended which were the scallop potatoes and the cream spinach. All of these items lacked any flavor and were very bland. We ate later in the evening when it wasn't as busy but you couldn't tell by the service as that was lacking. It was only 9 but it seemed that everyone from the hostess on had already shut down for the night and it was a Saturday night. Overall a big disappointment.
My BF and I went for our 6-year Anniversary...our waitress made it very special. The service was impeccable! Everyone was so nice! The food was amazing! I had the salmon and my BF had the ribeye ...both were delicious!!
The atmosphere was fun as well. Very busy spot on the weekends so I recommend you make a reservation ahead of time.
Definitely coming back!
Everything was fabulous
Lou and Mickey’s had been recommended to us by a young couple that had adored it. It was very attractive and had an extensive menu that should satisfy any palate. The food was prepared deliciously as ordered. Our server could not have been more attentive nor helpful.
The selections are all a la cartel which makes it a bit pricey. The noise level is quite high for older people.
We enjoyed our evening and the wonderful dinner.
Have been twice. First time was great but second was awful. Poor service
and they had run out of specials at 7PM. Food was average
Less than expected for the price we paid along with the service. We arrived on time for our reservation but had to wait 15 minutes, once we got to our table we had to wait about 10 minutes before anyone came to our table. The waitress was nice but she worked the outside area and was a little unfamiliar where things were in our area. The cocktail my wife ordered took a while to arrive. Regarding our order I ordered the salmon without pork and my wife ordered the 16oz steak, along with the clam chowder and calamari. When the entrees arrived the salmon had bacon on top of it and had to wait 15min before a new salmon entree came out, but in the meantime my wife's food drew cold as she waited for my entree to come out again. The food was tasty but having to wait twice for the main course was a disappointment. As we were eating two of the bus boy's were moving tables around and boxed me in, unable to move to move to my right side. Since it was around 1010pm, the staff seemed more concerned about leaving than ensuring my wife and I along with a other couple nearby were taken care of. I had to wave my hand to get someone in the front of the restaurant attention. Overall the food was good but just need to ensure that you stay focused until the last customer leaves.
The food and atmosphere was delightful. The price tag was REDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE!!
My wife and I took out two best friends out for Valentine’s Day. I requested flowers at the table, that didn’t happen. The menu was restricted, with very large price per person. The food the quality was OK but I’ve had much better. It was a disappointing evening I’m sorry to say.
We went for Valentine's Day and when I made the reservation, there was no mention of a set menu. The food was good, but the service was lacking and it was very noisy for what we thought was supposed to be a nice quiet dinner. They did nothing special except the set menu which was more to their advantage than ours. Other restaurants have done special things for special occasions and I was hoping that would be the case here but that was not to be.
Food excelent bad service they change us from our table with a 1500 usd account
I have only been here a couple of times but each one has been great! Not the cheapest lunch but it has always been good with great service.
It was my husbands 65th birthday and we were staying in Gaslamp.. made the reservations on open table , it was so easy.. we arrived early and were seated promtly.. the entress, 16 oz rib eye and macadamian crusted halibut excellent as was the ceasar salad and scallop potatoes... they even comp us a dessert.. our waitress was very friendly and attentive.. all in all an excellent experience
Not a very good experience. Ordered vodka Tonic and got vodka soda. we ordered fish and chips and it had way too much breading. And a Medium filet mignon and it was ok..but came on a sizzling hot platter so by the time i could eat it, it was med well . We ordered grilled spinach and the garlic tasted burnt. Too pricey for what you get.
Went out for our Anniversary during Happy Hour. Was sat down but soon forgotten. Had to ask for another server to take our order. Food was okay my husbands steak was done well. I had the steamed mussels which had a nice broth.
We were 7 persons staying at the Hilton and came for dinner. Lots of choices on the menu. Two of us had the Macademia crusted halibut which we both agreed was good but dry and over cooked. The crab bisque soup was excellent.
A Gentle Tourist Trap. This beautiful restaurant has seeded it's menu with exploitative prices: $22 for a glass of Sauv. Blanc from a $13 bottle. But the rip-offs acn be avoided with judicious ordering.
Awesome dining experience
Food was very good. Waitress was very good and friendly. Food “deliverers” were not very happy people. Otherwise, we enjoyed it.
My steak and shrimp were very good. My wife, however, ordered a sirloin, cooked medium, but it arrived red and cool. We never received any bread, had to wait for water, and our waitress was never around.
Nice selection to choose from. The outside patio is noisy with the train whistle coming through every 10 minutes.
The food was mediocre at best and pricey. I would recommend talking to a local for a recommendation.
We had a seven o'clock reservation for two on a Saturday night. We arrived a few minutes early and were promptly seated at a table for four with booth seating, which was nice as we like to sit together as opposed to across from each other. The larger table also provided an area under the table which accommodated our service dog. Our server was there to greet us almost immediately, and took our order for wine. My wife had the 6oz. filet and I had the 8oz. cut, both were cooked to a nice medium rare and were very tender. We split a wedge salad with bleu cheese dressing, but it was so large we could not finish it. Also, we each had a baked potato, which was also very big, and topped with butter sour cream, and chives. The dinner overall was excellent. We frequent San Diego downtown regularly but for some unknown reason had never tried Lou & Mickey's, perhaps because it is at the very south end of the Gaslamp District and not in the center, so it went unnoticed. A great find, and we will be back on our next trip.
One of the few fine dining restaurants with beer by the pitcher. The temperature in the restaurant was cooler than comfortable. It was noisy but typical for a Saturday night. The food was very high quality. Great raw oysters.
One of our favorite restaurants. Great food as usual, but the evening was made even better by our awesome server, Courtney. She was beyond amazing, with great food suggestions, best smile & engaging attitude every time she came to our table. It made this special evening, celebrating a 50th Birthday, TOP NOTCH. Much Thanks Courtney !!!
