We were celebrating our anniversary. The staff went the extra mile to make our night special, including rose petals on the table. Excellent service
Disappointed - went because of the reviews, salad was warm, dinner ok. We were a party of two and were stuffed next to another two that was a booth designated for a four top - not worth the value
Tonight I can for an early dinner, around 5 pm. Happy hour was infill effect which was enough to satisfy my craving. After 14 days abroad, I wanted some thing my stomach was familiar with. Started with the shrimp tacos and finished with the locally scoured yellowtail, cold center. It was exactly what I wanted. Perfect level of spice to clear my sinuses without making me uncomfortable as well as a wine selection, which paired perfectly with every dish that came out. Trust your server's suggestions! Most places are about the upsell, however the staff at greystone is dedicated to have your palate have the most enjoyable experience in the gaslamp quarter!!! Still at the top of my list, 10 year later!
The primes were wonderful, and top it off, the service was wonderful too. Good ambient for a quiet evening. Extra early opening helped avoiding the crowd.
I’ve been to several great steakhouses all over the country. I’ve been to most of the good ones here in San Diego too, but Greystone is at the top. Mainly because of their Japanese Wagyu beef I’d had the privilege to try. This high quality meat met my expectations. It was so flavorful! It was served excellently prepared and tasted fantastic. I had oysters on the half shell which were tiny but fresh and flavorful. My lobster tail was a little over cooked, but served its purpose. As for the restaurant, like most downtown establishments, they cram as many tables as possible inside these places. My table was comfortable, but in a high traffic area. I had to make sure I had no extremities in the walkway as not to get bumped during my meal. Oh! One of the table runners, not my server, was apparently untrained. He poured my Pellegrino as if he was trying to water some plants! He splashed water all over me and my cell phone (I was using it at the time). I literally had to take the napkin and wipe my cell phone screen and my face from all the water splash! Every time he returned after that I didn’t let him pour it. I just poured it myself. Nothing terrible. I just wanted to point that out. My server, Dennis, was ok. Nothing fantastic to write home about. He did his job. I had to ask him his name. He never told us when we were seated. FYI, don’t come here prepared to relax and have a conversation after your meal. Once you’re done eating, they shuttle you out real fast in order to get the next customer in The men’s room was very tiny. Uncomfortably close with more than one person inside. I thought the paper towel dispenser was more appropriate for lesser establishments. I will definitely return to Greystone. They have several cuts I’m looking forward to trying. Until I find the next great steakhouse in San Diego, Greystone will be my regular destination for fine cuts.
Not only the food is outstanding. The staff from the top to the bus members are just amazing! They are all so attentive to your every need. I will eat dinner there every time I’m in San Diego. And you should too!
Over rated. Noisy
Average (== good) food. Overpriced wine. Narrow tables.
Great restaurant. We have been back a few times. Food is excellent and our waitress (Jessica) was fantastic. Great service is so important and this restaurant knocks it out of the park!
Food is always good, the Hamachi Crudo was excellent and our steaks were cooked perfectly.
Foods not cheap, so come prepared, but worth it.
The restaurant was great and the bar is cool but they had taken too many walking and the customers were staying at their tables well past normal times. Our reservation was for 8pm and we didn’t get seated until 9:15pm. They definitely weren’t in control of the situation. This is obviously a popular place but they over committed themselves that night. It was a Tuesday night.
Japanese A5 Wagyu- does more need to be said? Quality food with quality servers. Every course is high quality flavor!
Ambiance good. Service excellent. Steaks were seasoned well but I prefer a more grilled exterior.
My wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary here and the staff were all fantastic. The Wagyu is a once (or more) in a lifetime must and the bone in filet melts in your mouth! Unfortunately, now I have a side of beef in my freezer that just won’t be the same :-)
I went there to celebrate my birthday and the food and staff were incredible, they were friendly and very attentive to our needs, they made me feel very special on my birthday
It was our anniversary and we loved it. Slight mix up with my order but the management and staff bent over backwards to rectify the situation. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Great night.
Smoked cheddar truffle Mac and cheese is unreal. Wagyu beef amazing. Great service and great location
Started off with oysters and lump crab cake. Both were very good, however, I learned that lump crab cake is different than regular crab cake. We split a 20oz New York strip, brussel sprouts and Parmesan truffle fries. The steak was charred (the good kind of charred) on the outside and medium rare inside, as ordered. Overall, a fantastic meal.
We arrived an hour early and couldn't be seated before our reservation which was fine and we thought that could happen so we went next door for a drink. We came back and they told us our table wasn't ready. After another half hour of the hostesses running around doing nothing a manager came by to check on us and gave us a free glass of champagne for our wait. After another 15 minute wait we finally got a table and learned that the table that they had planned to give us still had people at it after 3 hours and they paid and still didn't leave. We were then told that the kitchen was backed up and it took another hour to get our food. We ordered an appetizer that never came and they got one of the sides wrong, but the rest of the food was absolutely fantastic. The Sommelier was great and picked a great wine for us. They tricked us into getting a desert saying that we would get it comped for waiting so long for food, but ended up bringing a second small one us that was comped not the one I ordered, both were great tho. Was a very pricey dinner. This was our experience, make of it what you will.
Waitress included tip in bill for 5 people without asking. Staff kept bringing bottles of water and refilling without asking if we wanted another bottle. Presumptive service.
I should have learned my lesson by now. Never go to a steakhouse on Valentine's Day! While it was Valentines Day our reservation was fairly early & the restaurant was not crowded until 45 min. later. The Valentines Day Pre-fixe menu was substantial & while the Wagyu steak was tasty we did not receive the 3 sides that were ordered & waiter never came by to see how we were doing until we were done. Not that sides were necessary with our 4oz. behemoths. By this time the place was full and cramped, did I mention it was Valentine's Day? Seated next to us was a woman whom has yet to realize after 40 or so trips around the sun that a little perfume goes a looooong way. Fortunately their wine glasses are large enough to place even the largest schnoz in order to escape the surrounding stench. Hopefully the service is superior beyond Valentine's Day but I doubt I'll be returning to find out.
I’m not rich, so a night at Greystone was the first time I’ve splurged hard for a meal, but I’m very happy that I did. The servers were absolutely incredible, and the four course meal was the perfect amount. I’ve never had a cut of beef so perfectly cooked mid-rare, or a cheesecake so thick yet so soft all at once. It was a chance to show my girl what the finer things are like, and the cost was thankfully worth it.
I love it!
I wish I can love this place. Two of my co-workers highly recommended it, and I highly regard their restaurant taste.
My partner and I went on a Valentine's dinner, with a fixed menu. We both chose the $125 per person meal. Our crab legs were frozen, our steak was not that great, and brussel sprouts were under seasoned. Although service was quick and attentive, that did not save the horrible and overpriced meal we had.
Great Valentines’ day dinner menu!
Good server. Not impressed with food quality for price nor with management policy charging for no show on a guest whose flight was delayed 4 hours and unable to attend.
As always, awesome venue with excellent staff, great menu, supreme quality
We found all the food underwhelming except the steak. The appetizer calamari was huge but not exceptional, the lobster tempura appetizer was over cooked and not in a tempura batter. Our Brussels sprouts on the other hand were undercooked, almost raw. The steak, however, was delicious and service excellent. Not enough to have us go back.
Great dining experience! It was such a nice atmosphere, we ate at the bar! Service was fantastic and recommendations were spot on! We will return!
Wonderful place for a special occasion.
my wife and I went to Greystone for a pre-valentine dinner. We started out at the bar for happy hour & then moved to our reserved table for the main dinner experience. We had appetizers & cocktails at the bar. The food was good, but the drinks were weak & poorly made. My wife's cosmo martini was weak & watery & my Old fashioned was weak & improperly made. I was a bartender years ago at a fine 4 star restaurant. The menu said it was made with luxardo cherries. This drink was not, it came with those crappy pink cherries that DQ puts on hot fudge sundaes. Plus the whole taste was off. Would not order drinks at the bar again.
When we were seated for the dinner, the rest of the evening went well. The Chilean sea bass & the 10oz filet was prepared perfectly & paired well with wine.
Honeymoon dinner. They made it so magical.
Both the food and the service were amazing. The place is not that well designed to my taste.
Although the food was good the customer service was absolutely awful. First I waited to be seated at a booth for approximately 45 minutes and when I was seated even 5 minutes either staff and other guests kicked my chair. It was as if the restaurant brought in more chairs and tables to capitalize on profits. Then when the food was brought the steak was not cooked as requested and this dinner was to celebrate my Mother’s 75 Birthday. Lastly, exactly when the bill arrived (after waiting to pay) a staff member came over to apologize...it was way too late!
We came here for a date night during restaurant week, and it did not disappoint. Service was attentive but not overly attentive; my fillet mignon was the star of the show. There were a couple loud, large parties close to us, but the host said she could move us if it got to be a problem. Overall amazing food and atmosphere
Ribeye steak, which should have been the main event, was underwhelming, poorly seasoned and somewhat tough. The pork chop and the tuna appetizer were fine. The service was fine but always in a rush....You certainly didn't feel like you were getting their undivided attention....shouldn't have to ask for more water, especially twice. Seating was crowded and the place is loud. Overall it just wasn't the experience you'd expect in a "Prime" steak house. ...the bread wasn't even good.
Went here on a Wednesday night with a business associate and my wife. The place was busy and it took a while for the hostess to seat us. It took a longer while for the waiter to show up with a menu. It was during restaurant week, so that may be the explanation.
They have outdoor, down- and up-stairs seating. We ended up downstairs in a booth. A little cramped but OK.
This is a serious steak house and the selection is fantastic. We had a mixture of bison, fillet and salad for the meals. We also ordered desserts. The meals were well prepared and very tasty. It took so long for dessert to arrive that we took them to go. The desserts were thrown into a box and not much an experience when we got home.
The food is fantastic, the service was very much lacking. This is in a district with many restaurants and there are plenty of choices. Hate to say it but the service will make me go elsewhere, despite the great food.
Went for Restaurant Week Menu on Tuesday night. Had to specifically ask for the RW menu (server did not present it with the a la Carte menu). Knew what I wanted going into the restaurant so it should not have been a big deal. Well.. not so much. I ordered elk chop as the entree (listed on the RW menu). The server asked how I liked my “lamb” cooked (I will assume they ran out of elk as the side dishes were exactly the same as the elk). Whatever meat it was I was served was so tough and grisly, my steak knife could not cut through it and I gave up after about 3 or 4 bites. The appetizer and dessert were tasty enough, but the mystery meat left me cold. Would’ve been a much better value had the entree been edible since the appetizer and dessert were virtually free as part of the 3-course menu, but I could’ve saved money and had better dinner at Black Angus, Sizzler, etc.
Really a shame since this steakhouse is unique for its wild game offerings such as elk (I think I had venison there before) and should encourage you to go “off the beaten path” but made me regret not having steak instead (that everyone else does). I don’t think I will be returning to this restaurant.
The noise level made it hard to talk, mostly because the tables were really close together. You were constantly competing with the tables around you to be heard. Service was extremely slow, but when you finally got it, the food and drinks were cooked and made correctly. Other than the waygu offerings, which were decently priced, it’s a typical fine dining steak house. Nothing makes it stand out among the other steak houses around the area that you can dine for cheaper for the same quality of food and get a quieter, fine dining ambience.
It was a very good experience, service staff courteous and attentive. Excellent food!
