Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant - San Diego Ratings and Reviews
The staff was very pleasant. Upon being seated, we waited for service about ten minutes then I had to flag down another server and waited another five minutes before she waited on us. Then another 10 minutes before we got drinks. After that, server was very responsive.
I do not know if I will ever dine at this restaurant again. One time I went and the restroom was filthy; not just one stall but the entire restroom. It was disgusting. Worse than you would expect at a gas station restaurant. To make things worse, when I brought it to the hostess' attention, she just shrugged it off.
Recently I went to the restaurant again and both of my side dishes were cold. The prices are reasonable but still not cheap. Hot food should not be that difficult to provide.
We arrived at 5:30 per our reservation. We were seated in 5 minutes, and were waited on in another 5 minutes and ordered water and a beer. The drinks arrived in about 5 minutes. It went downhill from there. I think the waitress got lost, and we finally got to place our order after 15-20 minutes. We got our meals about 10-15 minutes later.
My personal lunch was good .The group I was with had issues with their meals (incorrect order,taste issues) Server needed help with large group .One person in group ordered clam chowder soup and we were then told when lunch was delivered is that we have no soup today ...few minutes later he returned with clam chowder??!! Not the best experience. We were celebrating a college graduation and it was not recognized although when reserved it was asked if something was being celebrated
Went for a late night dinner & drinks with friends from out of town. The food was decent and our server was really nice, but the wait times were ridiculous. It took about 25 minutes for everyone at our table of 5 to get drinks...and each refill took over 10 minutes. The restaurant was not understaffed, but there seemed to be a good amount of hanging out and chit chatting among the servers and bartenders - definitely would not recommend unless you are looking for a long, uninterrupted date night.
I ordered the Ribeye with Gorgonzola Butter. While the steak was on the “Thin” side, it was cooked just as I ordered & it was delicious. The only Mishap was our salads arrived at same time as our Entree. Not a huge deal to me, but would have preferred to enjoy my salad before my dinner arrived. Will definitely go back!
I made a reservation for a birthday party. We never had any mention of it during out trip. We also never received some requested extra sauces and drink refills because their kitchen was behind. It took an hour to get our food out. This was not the best experience and my bosses were not happy with me. I will say that our server was really great and this is not usually our experience.
Usually, very happy with this restaurant. Arrived and seated immediately in the bar. Server took our drink order and then our food order (appetizer and fries) when he delivered drinks. 45 minutes later, he returned to say the kitchen had run out of shaved beef for our sliders and had just gotten more. Our food would be out in a few minutes. 15 minutes later, still no food. A few minutes later, food arrived- cold and not what we ordered ( wanted fries with no garlic; got garlic.) Very disappointed with both food and service.
Unfortunately this place is not as good as I remember. Waiter took drink orders and never returned. Another waitress rescued us and was good after that. Took forever to get a drink though. Ordered the Ahi rare and it came medium well and dried up, basically ruined. Looked like it had been sitting a while before served. Will not return in a hurry. They also need to seriously update their beers for San Diego. Their session IPA is good but doesn't cut it compared to other craft Brewers.
It was hot that day but the air in the restaurant was not on to it's full potential. We asked several times to turn it up but no change came. We were there for 3 hours and it was hot when we walked in and hot when we left. Either fix the air or tell folks when they come in that it will be uncomfortable.
My disappointment with the restaurant is specifically with the fact I made a reservation early indicating the was a birthday celebration. Although only 4 of us, gifts were opened at the table so the event was clear and I also made thus known to the server. The server disappeared for awhile during our meal because he was given another table with a large party. When it was time for dessert, I again mentioned this is a birthday dinner. My daughter ordered the desert and the server put it in front of her and left. I did expect a candle and a few of the staff singing or doing something. Then, the dessert was on the bill so I questioned that.
It is not a requirement for a restaurant to light a candle and make the birthday girl feel special but that is why we dine out. You should not ask what is the celebration if the restaurant is doing nothing to make it special. I like Gordon Biersch but I will not go there for any special occasion. A party of 4 seems insignificant.
The food took about an hour and a half to arrive to our table. Once it did arrive our fries, burgers were cold. Even then they forgot one persons plate and took another 45 minutes (For a sandwhich plate) ... during all that time I think they refilled our drinks once. Normally I wouldn't think much of it on fathers day however the restaurant wasn't even packed so this was extremely disappointing.
We had a great time celebrating a co-workers lunch. Our waitress easily understood our meal request changes and made suggestions for other items that might go with with them. It was a bueatiful San Diego afternoon and we enjoyed our meal on the patio. Our waitress never rushed us and our drinks were always full. As always the garlic fries don't disappoint!
Really enjoyed the food! They were out of the steak I wanted but ended up enjoying great garlic fries with my California burger! The bar was a little slow, but our server was fantastic! It was a busy night after graduations so the wait was understandable! Glad we made our reservation through Ooen Table! Great place to celebrate with family and friends!
Unique foods perfect for pairing with beer! Our table had appetizers, fish, beef, and salads. I love that the burgers are simple and not over seasoned. You get the real flavor of the juicy beef. Another dish that was ordered was the grilled salmon with the kale, quinoa salad and sweet potato fries. Great food for meeting people for the first time and having them experience real American food.
We had a great time visiting with a visiting niece. We enjoyed great conversation and didn't have to shout to be heard above the other diners. The food was great. I highly recommend the Brewers Steak. The beer selections were outstanding. We didn't feel rushed by the wait staff as we sat and shared family gossip. All in all it was a great time.
Worst experience. I was not made aware of the buffet only menu and we had to pay $33.00/person for a horrible selection of cold and skimpy breakfast options and when I saw a man with a salad with a piece of grilled salmon I was told it didn't exist. I saw it and it did exist. My vegetarian daughters ate cold eggs and fruit for $33.00 each and I ate about 4 bites because I had stomach surgery and have a small appetite. We chose Gordon Biersch because of the vegetarian options and appetizer menu. Had we known what was waiting for us, we would have gone somewhere else. It's was only because my 97 year old grandmother gets exhausted moving around a lot that kept us there. We will NEVER make this mistake again. My biggest issues is that the man in the bar with the fresh green salad and lovely piece of salmon had options. I don't know why we didn't.
