Steakhouse

Bull & Bourbon is simply a cut above the rest when it comes to steakhouses.
With wet and dry aged cuts of meat fresh from the butcher, local coastal California seafood and everything in between, Bull & Bourbon is a modern steakhouse that puts subtle new spins on ribeyes, filet, strips and porterhouses to give them tenderness, juiciness and mouthwatering flavor. A restaurant that honors the meat and the cooking process, Bull & Bourbon doesn’t rush perfection. While San Diego’s most creative chefs grill and roast prime meats, guests can get comfortable in a refined steakhouse environment and take advantage of Bull & Bourbon’s beverage menu, which consists of cutting-edge cocktails, time-honored classics and a wine list full of both California and international wines. Of course, Bull & Bourbon also offers the area’s most diverse and immense collection of bourbons, single-malt scotches and blended whiskeys.

The food was quite good, the heirloom tomato salad and the broccoli rabe were exceptional, the steaks were good, one was a bit over cooked and the other undercooked, but not the the point that we would return them to the kitchen. The restaurant was quite crowded and we had a tiny table to begin our meal, our waitress kindly pulled over an additional small table top as soon as one became available. With the tall seating and large open space the noise level is very high. I wouldn't recommend it for an intimate meal, but seems like a great place to go with a large group.

Nice place with a solid menu. Alexander was our server. Attentive, polite, and a great asset to the B&B organization. Two things to consider though. One would be to get the blinds/curtains to cover up that one gap to block the evening sun (ask Alexander, he'll know), and my personal opinion would be a fraction less "salt topper" on the steaks and veggies. Oh, and the mushrooms are an absolute A+. Other than that, thanks for a great evening. I would recommend B&B to a friend.

The food was excellent.But the service was not that great.We expected the server would be more attentive but we have to raised our hands to ask for something.The servers or the service at the Viewpoint restaurant Next door is more excellent than theirs.Overall,we love the food.

Our fourth time here. April gave us outstanding service which made this visit the best yet. Delicious meal included garden salad, filet, and the wonderful Mexican corn. Russell the manager, gave us the heads up on the yummy cheesecake (flown in from New York) This continues to be our favorite place to dine...

New restaurant that needs to tweak a few bugs but overall good. I clearly stated it was my Birthday and showed ID when booking the appointment. Wasn't greated by Hostess. Ordered martinies and it took 19 minutes to receive them...mind you, there were only 2 other occupied tables. Eventually the waiter asked who was having the Birthday. Me ..the one all dressed up. Meal was pretty good. Truffle Mac & cheese outstanding. Good flavor and crispness on the calamari. Steaks good but not outstanding. Was brought a Birthday cheesecake with a candle but then charged &7 for it! That really left a bad taste at the end of the evening. At least tell me that you're gonna charge me for my Birthday desert!

The menu on Open Table looked good abd Bull & Bourbon Steakhouse was being promoted as a new steakhouse in our area. We drove 20 miles for a Birthday dinner following maps directions but there was no signage at the location to indicate where the restuarant was, no parking and no help from an employee of the organization. Furthermore when we called the open table number listed for Bull & Bourbon we got an automated response with no link to the restuarant. We gave up and drove the 20 miles back and found another restuarant. They may be good, but are impossible to find. Very Disappointed

They do not tell you that they will charge you a TAX that no other Indian Reservation in San Diego County charges

Pure rip off. Nobody can tell you why they charge a TAX as a sovereign Nation that does not pay Federal or State taxes

The food and our server. April were excellent. The reason we did not give it 5 stars was that it took a while for our entrees to come out. The mix green salad was crisp and a perfect compliment to the prime rib caps. The bacon wrapped shrimp was crisp and served over a street style corn. Perfect melding of flavors. The 18 oz rib eye was delicious.

Food was great. Ordered a Bone-in NY strip and they brought out a Bone-in Ribeye steak. After several minutes the correct steak was bought to the table. Needless to say my friend had finished eating by the time I received the correct cut of meat.

I would rate the main dishes at a 5. The steaks were amazing! My steak was like butter. Even the next day heated up. yum! It's the sides that bring it down. It's weird that they are ordered separately. My husband and I were both looking forward to the asparagus. They came way too hard to eat. Almost raw. Even the next day, heated for a long while in a microwave, still way too hard. My friend has never seen colored carrots before. She didn't know what they were till I explained. It turned her off and she wouldn't eat them. The Ambiance would also be a 5 however, the sun was in our eyes the entire meal. There was no getting away from it. Very uncomfortable. The staff was wonderful! Upbeat, experienced, attentive. Sycuan's hospitality is unrivaled. My meal was completely comped. Despite the above, my overall experience was very good. It was a fun place to have a meal with friends. I probably won't do it again at the same time. The sun was too much to handle. Which is a shame because 515 is a normal start time for dinner.

This place is awesome. The food was extremely large portions and cooked to perfection. We ordered the rib eyes which were at least 3 inches thick and melted in your mouth! We started with the crab cakes yum! Our sides were a football sized baked potato and tasty Mexican corn. Desert was 4 delicious lemon donuts with blueberries and cream. Very beautiful decor, wonderful service, and great drinks! The only thing I’d say negative is it’s a little loud but it’s wide open seating with an open kitchen so it’s too be expected. Highly recommend!

We were celebrating our 35th anniversary at the Sycuan Resort so wanted to get a great meal! And boy did we! Strip Steak was great as was the Prime Steak Cap; I had never seen the "Cap" cut at a restaurant, but it was one of the best I've ever had. And the baked potato is HUGE so it can definitely be split. Keep in mind they just opened so they are trying to get things smoothed out. But the staff is trying their best - we did not have any issues, all was great!

I’m a person that loves to dine out. My boyfriend and I love steak and we were recommended to dine there, so we decided to make reservations. Everything was over the top! My steak melted in my mouth of how tender it was. All I have to say is, I want to go eat there again. As my dessert I had the banana’s Fosters and it was delicious. I think I’m going there tonight!!!!!!! 😍😍😍

The restaurant has the feel of a very nice coffee shop. We were looking for that special "steak house" ambiance, but Sycuan missed it completely. The food was fantastic!!!!! The bourbon pairing was perfect. Service was very good. But if I am looking for a place to take someone special, I would not choose Bull & Bourbon.

Day two after grand re-opening and they are a little disorganized. Food was great and the staff very nice so the delays were tolerable. Booked with a reservation and waited 20 minutes to be seated. After seating it was apparent the wait staff was stretched thin so ordering took long as well as serving. I hope that they will tighten up as time goes on.
