It was my boyfriend’s birthday. And he’s been wanting to go to this place for months. We finally made a reservation and came all the way from Hollywood (45 min drive) the food was incredible. The whiskey was amazing. Clark was spectacular! Everything was perfect. Clark says that was caught them on a slow night, but I prefer that because it was very quiet and the ambience was top tier. Thank you guys for an amazing night!

I’ve dying to a quite a few times and the food is usually pretty good escargot is by far the best I’ve ever had. I don’t think our server smiled once tonight. The cocktails are delicious and priced about what you would expect for a steakhouse if you go off the menu for anything other than steak or fish I would not recommend as an entrée entrée. Overall they are extremely overpriced for the value

Don’t sit outside if it’s cold. There is only one heater per 3-4 tables and it is bolted down so can’t be moved. Also sat for over 15 minutes before server came.

Amazing food and vibe. We got a little corner table on the outdoor patio with heating lamps. This made the conversation even more intimate. The eggplant meatballs, persimmon salad, and porterhouse were exceptional. Steak & Whisky also has some of the best cocktails in the business - my husband had the Smoke n Bourbon and I had Rosie the Riverter. Great service.

The hostess was extremely rude. We sat down for 25 minutes before anybody came to check on us. When we pointed this out to the hostess, she did not apologize and was rather rude about the situation.
The food was decent(not great) but not worth this attitude.

Steak & Whiskey is our favorite restaurant! Tonight was maybe a tiny bit less positive as we waited a long time to place our food order and the spinach dip, which we always order, was very loose/runny. Steaks were delicious and brussels were fantastic, as usual!

Outstanding! Finally they have a staff that is all around pleasant. The hostess was very accommodating and nice. We love the wait staff. The waiter doubled as our bartender. He makes a great martini. He also gives very good wine recommendations. We both had steak and a wedge salad. They have very good key lime pie also.

This is the second time I have ordered the pork chop there. The first time I thought it was a fluke that it was over cooked but now that I’ve had it a second time I’m disappointed to discover they just don’t cook it well. I’ve been looking for a place to get a great pork chop ever since Fonz’s in Manhattan Beach closed.

Their tuna tartare and brussels sprouts are great though!

The food was delicious. We ordered the Halibut which came with risotto, prime rib with mashed potatoes , and surf and turf with the rib eye steak. The most delicious was the halibut with the risotto and I typically hate risotto. The entire staff provided good service. Great ambiance

I feel this restaurant has lots its mojo sadly. Used to be very good but now the service is just low and not service oriented as it was in the past. Service crew is just getting by when before they were very on top of it for a higher end restaurant in Hermosa like this one.

It was such a shame to not to be able to share this place with friends. Sat there literally for 35 minutes without anyone approaching us asking for drinks or food anything. Before this happening I used to brag about this place to my friends as a great place to eat and drink. An absolute shame to be treated like we weren’t even there.

Our steaks came out of the kitchen as we were taking our first bite of our appetizer, which was the burrata/caprese. Chose to start on the steak before it got cold. Moments later staff member comes by and asks to take a way our starter plates. No thank you, I've barely begun. I ordered Medium Rare and the steak was Medium to Medium well. It wouldn't have been as obvious if not for the picture diagram sitting on the table detailing (with pictures) the various cooking levels. Moments later a staff member swiftly takes away my cocktail that was still 25% full. Flies were landing on our food/table throughout. Later on a staff member offers a take home box to my girlfriend, who isn't finished, and while I still have food in my mouth. All of this while there was only one other occupied table inside (there were a few outside but less than 5). For $50+ steaks I expected better and will not be going back anytime soon. I will say the flavor of the steak was pretty good though. Our res was for 5:30 on a Friday night, a bit early yes, but it didn't get any busier by the time we left just before 7:00. It seems others have figured out there are better places and I don't expect this place to be around for much longer.

When we arrived we were told we could only be seated outside because our reservation did not show that we had requested indoor dinning, even though we made our reservation a month ago. The guy was very rude about it. When I told him to give me a minute to pull up my reservation and show him I had specific requests he got an attitude and said he had to help the other guest arriving. Mind you it had not even been two minutes. The manager came over and got us to a table inside right away after hearing me out. From there on out the service was great. The food was amazing, steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The Japanese whiskey flight was amazing. The machines did go down so I waited 30 minutes for my check only to be told I could not have my total or pay then but could write down my card info and it would be processed later or the next day. Overall the food was worth it.

We were back again to this fantastic restaurant for my boyfriend’s birthday. The portions are generous and we love all the side dishes, broccolini, potato gnocchi, fries, onion rings. We’ve tried almost all of them. We’ve had the New York drip and rib eye which are both seasoned differently but both really juicy and cooked to perfection!! Service is consistently impeccable.
