Steakhouse
STK San Diego artfully blends two concepts into one—the modern steakhouse and a chic lounge. A large central lounge area is furnished with creamy leather banquettes, and is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, large windows allow patrons to catch a glimpse of the bustling Gaslamp Quarter, while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. STK San Diego is located in the heart of Gaslamp Quarter at the Andaz San Deigo. As anticipated, steak is the main attraction. STK San Diego offers small, medium and large cuts of meat, as well as naturally raised options and market fresh fish entrees. Aside from steak, signature items include Parmesan Truffle Fries; Lil’ BRGs; Tuna Tartar; and Sweet Corn Pudding.

One of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. Mario our server made our night by recommending menu items when we were indecisive, and his drink selections were on point. Tim the manager even stopped by the table to check on us ,so I could tell him that the creamed corn was one of the best things I’ve ever had. Best date spot in San Diego hands down with great ambiance, service and vibe.

We were headed out for a family dinner with my parents in town and were EXTREMELY IMPRESSED with our service. Our server, SYDNEY, was over the top with outstanding service from the introduction to the time she assisted us with our exit out the door! Her interpersonal skills were incredible and she thoroughly made our experience. Our 6 year old son feel in love with her as well! I would hire her to deal with all my customer relations if I could!

This was one of the most disappointing dining experiences I’ve had. I will disclose that my visit did occur during a very busy night — Valentine’s Day, and any qualms I have were not with my waiter.

To start, we checked in 15 minutes before our reservation and were seated over 30 minutes after the time of our reservation. It would have been nice to be seated on time, but we weren’t too broken up about it. However, immediately after sitting down we were told that we had a 90 minute limit. I understand there was heavy traffic in the restaurant, but after being seated over half an hour late, we would have appreciated a proper greeting or anything else really before being told we were basically being timed.

We already knew what we were going to order so we ordered everything at once. We noticed other tables were brought bread upon sitting down, but we were not. We thought maybe it was something we had to order so we didn’t think too much of it.

We both ordered a cocktail (which tasted like 100% juice and that is saying something because I am very sensitive to anything alcoholic) and then for appetizers we ordered the bone marrow and calamari. It took almost an hour to receive them. They were honestly underwhelming. There was no flavor, not even the slightest hint of salt. Then out of nowhere comes the bread. It was fine, but it seemed oddly timed.

We were told from the start that we would only have 90 minutes to enjoy our meal, yet our food was not even served within that time. I know it seems like we were being anal time keepers, but based on our first interaction, we felt pressured to be.

Our main dish came 40 minutes after we finished our appetizers. We ordered the Porterhouse, and for over $100 I would have expected it to be cooked to our desired temperature —medium, but it was sooo tough! The meat was very chewy and like the appetizers, NO FLAVOR! Seriously, not even salt and pepper. We took a couple bites to not waste it, but so disappointed.

Steak was good and mashed potatoes were average. I ordered 1 - 28oz porterhouse one mashed potatoes and 3 cocktails ...steak was good but definitely not $105 dollars good... mashed potatoes were flavorless and lackluster and 3 drinks watered down and not mixologist quality the experience was definitely not worth the $250 bill ... service from waiter was excellent but the food is definitely not worthy of the price point! Sorry STK but I wanted your chef to WOW me for $250 but he definitely didn’t 😫

Definitely did not bring vegas style service. Loved our waitress but the service was extremely slow. Arrived maybe 20 min early for our reservation and still had to wait until our reservation time even though it was not busy. Food was not worth the price we paid, the Tomahawk we ordered was burnt. Im surprised they even brought it out.

Overall it was a great experience. We made it in time to have happy hour cocktails, and then ordered steaks. It was my birthday and not sure if they don’t do dessert and a candle, so that was a small bummer. Will go back.

We celebrated our friends 50th birthday service was professional friendly and fun! They went out of their way to make the birthday girl feel special they brought a free appetizer to the table the manager personally greeted us and they have such a special fanfare for the birthday! And the food was great!!!!!

Super modern and clean, service was on point! The porterhouse steak was amazing, all the sides were great and the Lil Brgs were tasty but I wouldn’t get them again. The music and overall ambiance of the place was great and hip, my group consisted of 21-23 year olds and we all loved the vibe this place has!

although a bit loud to try and enjoy dinner to, the DJ added a bit of fun atmosphere. Our waiter was fun, informative and energetic, but it kinda ended there, the Calamari was extremely salty and over fried, the off season asparagus never should have been offered as an available side, they were way too thick and very unappealing. We don’t mind paying for an awesome steak, which they were (bone in filet and New York strip) but neither was cooked to order and we’re not ones to send them back. It was our first time, but we will be back, I’d like to give em another try...

Just not worth the money. Seemed more gimmicky than anything else but I suppose that's what you pay for with a Vegas restaurant group.

Not a good experience. I love STK normally but I don't think I'll ever go to this particular site again. For some reason they had a live DJ in the restaurant. No dancing near as I could tell, but the music was way too loud for the venue. I felt as though I was trying to have a good quality steak in club, as if they were trying to combine pre-club dinner with the actual club. I left at 10:30 but maybe if I'd stayed a little longer, the dance floor would have been cleared. Not sure. Nonetheless, it was not was I expected from an STK Restaurant.

Had $150 gift certificate. Got a $70 steak and was small and not that good. Lots of fatty pieces. A $70 steak should knock your socks off and it didn’t. Also had a dj playing music to load.

Food and service were impeccable. The only issue we had was the noise level. They had a DJ playing loudly in the back dining area. Looking at the demographic at that hour as we had reservations for six, there were a bunch of 40–60 somethings thar really didn’t seem to be enjoying it. We couldn’t have any substantial dinner conversation because of the noise level unfortunately. Maybe wait for the DJ until about 9 o’clock?

Never been here before but I’ve heard nothing but great reviews about this place. Well! I’m here to say this place was amazing. From booking our reservation all the way down to the last bite on my meal and sip on my cocktail. We had late night dinner and a large party of 7, they thanked me for choosing STK and wanted to come back for the happy hour. One of the best spots in SD, can be price but I thought It was It worth every dollar spent.

We came down to San Diego for my husbands birthday weekend and stayed at the Andaz. It was our first time out since having a baby. We really appreciated how the hostess and staff were very accommodating for us dining with a 3 month old. We ended up dining both nights here. The food was absolutely amazing. We will be back.

The food is wonderful and the servers are great; however, they make the bill complicated for groups that choose to split the bill (with today’s technology this should never be an issue). They also take a while to take your food order. They will not seat you until your entire party arrives which is understandable (just making people aware). The love DJ was awesome!
