Great food and service. They unfortunately had a party of 40 in the back area where they put us. The manager was very nice and moved us to a different table. It was next to another extremely large party but less loud. They should have a designated area for these types of events.

Bull abs Bourbon is one of my favorite restaurants. I never leave disappointed. We started our meal with the Jumbo Crab Cakes. Cooked perfectly. Slightly crispy on the outside and so flaky abs tender on the inside. Sometimes crab cakes are too creamy inside but these were perfect. My main entree was the filet Mignon and my boyfriend had the NY Strip. Both were delicious. I found myself taking small bites to make it last longer! Sides are al la cart. Sides are always large enough to share so we chose the garlic mashed potatoes For dessert, it was the cheesecake. Our server, Angelique was excellent. Very attentive, so, we didn’t wait long for anything.

Trouble using our rewards coupon. Manager on deck Carlos was not easy to work with. Waited a long time to get the issue resolved. Ruined the evening meal among friends celebrating birthdays and anniversary.

Overall a great experience, the food was amazing! Service could’ve been a bit better. (Unfortunately, we had to wait quite a bit to get our drinks, food wasn’t brought out when asked- drink menu was asked for twice and never was brought to us) The ambiance was fantastic.

they did not have my reservation even though I showed them the confirmation--although the sea bass and the calamari was excellent--the rest of the meal and the ambiance was really lacking---not a steakhouse vibe

Reservation was at 6:15pm. Where we were seated, the sun was blaring at us. We were told the curtains could not be moved. They shouldn’t seat anyone there during that time. Waitress had to many tables to serve.

The waiter was nice and accomodating.
The hostess told us we had to be there in a half an hour or we would lose our reservation. When we got there the restaurant was empty. I think she lacked common sense. It was not busy so why lose business?
The food was awful. The lobster was really fishy and almost unedible.

chicken was burnt and my filled mignion was burnt and overcooked. I thought coming to a steak house the steak would be cooked to perfection. Uggh for the price and burnt food, definitely would not recommend unless have credits from the casino. Very disappointing

Lobster was served raw...no bread served, waiter was not very accommodating, his assistants were GREAT...they offered more apologies than he did. He told us about only 3 credit cards would be accepted but didn't offer to split the bill.
From the beginning it was a hassle to make the reservations with the front desk of hotel. This 3rd booking is a joke when it is a restaurant in the hotel. Several of our guests drove from Point Loma and will never come to the restaurant again and will share their experience with others. One of the couples own a restaurant in Pt. Loma and we're shocked by their experience.

Our steaks were incredibly under done. We ordered medium plus and received rare. The salad we ordered was 90% croutons. Our server never checked on us, so we never had a chance to ask for the steaks to be cooked further. We had to get up multiple times to track down the waitress to reorder drinks. Don’t waste your time or money here.

Everything from cocktails to desert was perfect! Our waiter John was outstanding. He gave us time to enjoy our drinks before bringing appetizers. He was very attentive and knowledgeable. Our steak and lobster pasta was delicious. The cheesecake for desert was one of the best that I’ve ever had.

The steak and lobster was excellent as well as the service. There is no bread , which we missed , but the dessert was fantastic! We were originally seated , facing the kitchen, but on request we were moved to a more intimate table. We were celebrating a 32nd anniversary and were very pleased with this dinner.

Overall very good experiences with the service and the food. John was an excellent waiter. Went there for my birthday and our waiter John asked us what we were celebrating, but we never got any special notice for it! We saw another waiter singing happy birthday to another table. Bread needed to be offered as an appetizer with the wine we ordered.

Rude waitress and a wedge salad that was half the lettuce core. They are not even serving bread still using Covid as an excuse. What does Covid have to do with serving bread?

My husband and I dined on a Wednesday night. My husband ordered the $20 hamburger, I ordered a Ceasar’s salad and crab cakes. I though the Caesar’s salad was ok and there wasn’t much to it. The crab cakes were not the best but they were ok. The drinks were fine and the atmosphere is great.

We were looking forward to our dinner with friends after being cooped up for a year. We'd been to Bull & Bourbon in the past and have been very happy with the service and food. We started in disappointment. They no longer have bread service (at all)...they used to have cranberry butter to die for! We were all looking forward to that so didn't enjoy the meal as much as we should knowing what was missing. The food was good, so I'm not complaining about that. Just wish they would bring back the awesome bread/butter.

Host was very dry and not polite. She Greeted us and welcomed us in with no eye contact, looking down, with a low mumble tone that put me off right away. When she showed us to our table it was more like a there you go bye feel as opposed to someone just showing us to our seats. BESIDES THIS EVERYTHING WAS DIVINE THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR STAY DELICIOUS. PLEASE thank the cook/s for cooking our steaks to perfection and the lobster was on point. Whomever made the Truffle MAc please kiss them for me! Our waitress was kind and genuine she made sure we had everything we needed and gave us space to have conversation. We absolutely love the ambiance thank you once again Team Bull and Bourbon <3

Had the 18 oz Rib Eye Steak cooked to my liking. The only issue we had was my husband ordered appetizers for his main dish and all of his food came out cold because his food sat on the counter until my steak was ready. My veggies were cold as well. Servers were friendly, but could have been more attentive considering it's an upscale restaurant.
