The only thing good about our dinner was the protein. My guy had the ribeye and I had the Chilean sea bass. Both were great. Both sides we ordered were underwhelming - spinach tasted like wet grass (no seasoning at all) and the mushrooms were in a sweet balsamic glaze (not my cup of tea at all). We asked for the asparagus and somehow they forgot to season that dish as well. A little bit of butter and salt and pepper would have gone a long way. We will not be returning.

The service was terrible. Our waitress was impatient and unfriendly. When she WAS at our table, she was short with us and rude. The food was great but VERY overpriced. Perhaps I felt this way because the food was expensive but the service was awful.

Aloha,

I've owned my own Catering company for almost 3 decades and I'm extremely picky about where I dine.

Lou & Mickey's is by far, my favorite Restaurant in San Diego. From the Prime Cuts, to the wonderful side dishes.

Treat yourself to a fantastic experience,
Lou and Mickey's will not disappoint.

Mahalo🤙🏼

We were in town for New Years Eve. We did not notice on the web site that it was a set menu. The waiter was great and let us split the one dinner and it was plenty enough. No way we could have done a whole 3 course ourselves !! We did get some Mexican shrimp which was wonderful. We will be back to try the original menu soon ! thanks

It was mine and my husband's birthday and 23 anniversary so we did a staycation and after hearing from multiple friends that loved it here, we picked it over Flemming's and Donovan's. The food was delicious but our steaks we're very cold. If they were hot or warm I would give a perfect rating.

The food is amazing. My steak was so tender I didn’t even need a knife. Only bad point is the price. It’s one of the most expensive steak houses I’ve been to. But worth it for a special occasion.

Great evening with awesome food and service. The steaks were cooked exactly as we ordered them. One our the most do items are the crab nuggets, makes it easy to eat and your not fighting with the shell.

Very disappointing and quite costly for the quality. Service very poor. Calamari not hot or crispy, Crab Louie appeared and tasted like it was canned crab, certainly not fresh. Presentation on plate very poor....one small filet on large plate with nothing else but the filet.

The service was SO SLOW - and granted we had a large group, it was ridiculous. Our server kept forgetting things he said he would do, and it took us hours to get through the meal. The food came out lukewarm and was average at best. I would not recommend it and would not return.
