    the service itself was very good. I thought the servers outfits were adorable with the suspenders. It was a nice touch to the outfit. Food was great but I did wish that the calamari were more bite size and a tad bit crunchier. Steak was made on point. If you don't like horseradish don't get the truffle sauce.

    We came for our anniversary, it was a wonderful experience. We had the escargot, center cut filet, elk chop and Brussels sprouts. Everything was wonderful! The Brussel sprouts weren’t anything too spectacular, but still good. Our server went above and beyond with cake and champagne for our anniversary. Highly recommend for a date night or special occasion.

    It was our first time going to Greystone steakhouse in downtown San Diego. I’ve been to Steak houses all around the country and this by far is one of the best I’ve ever been to!! The service was great, eat was excellent!! Sara ( who runs operations) was by far the best part of the evening!! Very sweet!! Very engaging with the customers!! 6 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Celebrated our anniversary while in town for work from Texas. So happy we came to Greystone. Atmosphere was awesome. We sat upstairs and our server Michael was amazing. We asked for his guidance on quite a few things and none of his recommendations disappointed. He suggested we get the crawfish etouffe appetizer and we were skeptical because we are Cajun and have high standards for Cajun dishes but this was an awesome twist on etouffe that we did not expect! We loved it. My husband got the bison and although he didn’t love how much sauce was on the dish, overall it was very good! I got the filet and we shared Brussels sprouts and the lobster Mac, all were excellent. The chocolate lava cake was good but not our favorite part. The restaurant treated us with two free glasses of Prosecco to celebrate our anniversary which was a very nice addition. Overall the atmosphere and our server Michael were our favorite parts and the food was great also. Definitely recommend!

    We booked reservations hoping for a romantic night out… instead we ended up with a dud of a dinner experience. Food was unremarkable - salad drenched in tasteless dressing, steaks that were just okay, crab cake jade with frozen crab, etc. Our waitress was extremely rushed, and could barely pause at our table. For a $250 meal for two… definitely try somewhere else!

    Food was great a little pricey for what your getting, the waiter never came with our refill after he said he will; they seem to never really check on you. Other than that for was tasty just not enough for what you pay for.

    I went with my girlfriend for her birthday and indicated that in my reservation. (I don't think anyone checked the reservation to see that it was her birthday) We both ordered seafood (Sea Bass and Salmon). The Sea Bass was okay/passable. The salmon was not fresh and had a spoiled flavor. Additionally, it was overcooked. The portions were small as well. The restaurant was very busy and I didn't want to complain. We suffered through our meals and left the restaurant. $42 for salmon and $49 for sea bass would be fine if the portions were reasonable and the quality was good. These were neither.

    Disappointed, to say the least! The service was slow, the food was mediocre. After being seated for 25 minutes, our beverage order was finally taken. The table next to us seated with eight plus guest, was very well accommodated as they had four+ servers and a host to serve them. Our table of four (including two children) for which we spent $600 was snubbed, not to mention when my husband was asked to come inside to pay because “the payment machine didn’t work well outside”. It seemed to work well for the couple that wined and dined near us for for less than two hours. Don’t bother wasting your money, $5 plus for an additional steak sauce (peppercorn and horseradish). The shrimp on the “chilled shellfish platter” was overdone. This restaurant was subpar at best.

    We were greeted with nice smiles at first…once we were seated they kind of forgot about us. Not sure why…but had a horrible service. We still have them a 25% tip simply because…we get it…but will not recommend it unless they change their customer service behavior.

    Overall the experience was fair at best. I had very high expectations given how the restaurant was marketed and the advertised price of the food. We were seated immediately having arrived just before our reservation time. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful with the menu. She took our order in a timely fashion. We received bread and our appetizer timely as well. However, I ran out of water more than once, which I feel should not happen at a restaurant of this caliber, especially given that we went on a weeknight that was not busy (less than half of the tables were being used by guests). Our order took a very long time to come. My date and I saw at least three groups that arrived after us receive their food before us. Once our food arrived, my date’s steak was very undercooked (she ordered medium but received a medium rare filet). We returned the steak and it took some time to get the steak back. The food was very flavorful but not worth the price (aside from the Wagyu, which I expected to pay a premium for). I would not recommend Greystone because I have had twice the dinning experience for half the price at competitive restaurants (chain restaurants at that).

    This is a tough review to write and restaurant to rate. The food (tomato bisque, NY Steak, Salmon, and Chilean Sea Bass, and Chocolate Lava Cake was EXCELLENT!! However, the service was mediocre. We asked to be seated inside for 2 reasons: (1) my wife tends to get cold, and the indoor temperature is better for her; and (2) the noise from the street can (AND WAS) be very loud - music blaring from cars and pedi-bikes, traffic noise, etc. Then we had to wait ~10 minutes just to get the menus. The stag also had a tough time/confusion in delivering the bread, water, etc. Finally, the waiter referred to my DAUGHTER several times in the masculine (young man, him, etc.). Just because she chooses to wear her hair short doesn’t make her a boy!! It was offensive. Maybe the service issues were bad day …. I don’t know…. But the food was EXCELLENT!!

    Honestly the worst experience I’ve ever had. Overkill on the service to the point my date and I couldn’t even get a word in during our dinner. Many times the servers came by and attempted to take our plates as we were eating and then tell us to take our time. I had a lovely piece of hair in my food as well. Multiple times was bumped by servers trying to get to another table. The funny thing is, the place wasn’t even busy. Not sure what the deal was with this place but they were not in their game. I paid for my food, hair and all but mentioned to the manager what we experienced and she attempted to give us a gift certificate which I declined because we won’t be returning. For a nearly $300 bill, I expected a bit more in regards to quality of food and more of a relaxed environment for me as the guest. Not worth the money for any reason.

    A5 Japanese Wagyu is best described as steak flavored butter! It will literally melt in your mouth! Nice place, good service, delicious steaks and a solid wine selection. Only complaint was the bathroom. Other than that- a steakhouse that offers choice cuts and smiles!

    Service was very slow. Waiter asked if we were celebrating anything. We said we were celebrating our engagement. No dessert, champagne, etc… usually at higher end places you would think they would bring you something to celebrate. As mentioned before the services was very slow and we didn’t get a check in once food was dropped off. Would have liked to ask for more sour cream, salt, pepper.
