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.

This place is brutal with their reservations. We have been here multiple times but the last two times have been horrible. On the previous visit, we had a 9pm reservation and we were not seated until 10:25. We decided to give it another go on this trip to San Diego, hoping that the previous visit was just a one off anomaly. It wasn't. We had a 8:30 reservation and we were not seated until 9:35. It completely ruins the night when you are forced to stand outside waiting an hour+ for your table. The food was pretty average to be honest. It was a $240 dinner for two with an average steak and a 1 hour wait with a reservation. With so many options in the gaslamp area, I seriously doubt we will be returning. With the line outside, I am not sure they will really care about my review, but it was disappointing to say the least. Terrible experience.

We made reservations for three at 830 on a Saturday evening. We arrived at 815 and I was told they were clearing a table and would be seated momentarily. Over the course of the next 90 minutes we inquired about our status. The hosts were rude and offered no apologies for the extended wait. At 945 we were finally seated again with no apologies. The waiter was super friendly and helpful with dinner selections. The blue cheese salad was good but watery. My fillet was cooked perfectly but was not hot. The drinks were good, the sides were average. We had the Mac and cheese and the mashed potatoes and the corn. All were warm not hot and just ok taste. They added $26 in alcohol they we didn’t have which I caught and they gladly removed it but I normally don’t look at the bill that closely and I’m glad I did. Overall STK in San Diego did not meet and certainly failed to impress. Not worth the $500.

Felt rushed and over priced for the services. I felt a little discriminated and overall rush to get out so they can bring another party. Worst we drove all from far to celebrate a birthday.

Energetic ambiance, but below average food with way above average prices. The steaks, which sounded great, were sub par. Everything lacked seasoning. Nothing had salt. Service, however, was excellent.

So I ordered the $100 seafood tower. The shrimp were a combination of overcooked, several days old, and definitely frozen a couple of times. After pointing this out to the server they brought more saying 'the chef cooked these just today' - they were still super rubbery/chewy/leatherish.

After pointing this out to the server and the manager who were nice enough to check they said, oh we'll make it up do you want more crab or lobster- we said 'Sure!'. So they brought us two small oysters. We asked what happened to the calamari and mussels - they said 'since you said no clams we didn't bring those either'.

We got the check - and the full seafood tower was on the charge and the server said 'well we did a make good with the two oysters to replace the 12 shrimp'.

Needless to say this is not the experience I expect from STK. I've been to NY, LA, Atlanta, and Vegas locations and all were excellent. This one sadly was disappointing across the board.

We were hoping for a high class environment and meal but the unfavorable music was so loud we could hardly hear each other talk. The food was very average and very expensive. Just expected more for the money.

We went back to STK because we had such a good experience the first time we went. The quality of the food was very good and the service was excellent. The cost of the meal was a lot more than we expected and is the only thing that will keep us from returning.

It was mine and my fiancé’s anniversary, and we had decided to come down to San Diego to celebrate we were seated after about 20 minutes with a pretty nice table. Our food did take a while to arrive but our server kept on checking up on us and apologizing for the wait. Eventually after a while we got our food it was cooked to perfection. After we finished eating the manager of the restaurant also came up to our table and apologized and offered us free desert. Overall we were extremely satisfied with the customer service and the kindness of our waiter thank you Mat for your amazing service and thank you to the manager as well.

Service was amazing, Emma was great and she was new and you couldn't tell. We really enjoyed her. Food was great except their dessert kind of sucks. They need to step up their dessert options. Nothing beats Ruth's Chris' cheesecake.

It's REALLY loud in there, we actually asked them to lower the volume a bit so we could at least hear each other talk, which they did.

Our table was in the back room in the corner and it was FREEZING cold. Something was just blowing freezing cold air under the table. I'm always hot and I was freezing cold. I actually got a bunch of cloth napkins to put on my legs. They were super nice about it and actually turned the AC down a bit to make it warmer and it helped.

It's super expensive but we knew that going in. 5 of us was $1,018. The total bill was $1,418 with the tip. Emma did great and deserved the great tip. We also ordered a ton of stuff that might not be standard for most people. We got a lot of expensive appetizers for the whole table and a lot of drinks as well. But don't count on getting dinner there for less than $100 per person if you are drinking alcohol.

I'd recommend it to others, we may go again but we are about an hour away from San Diego and we'd most likely hit Ruth's Chris for the money and a more quiet dinner. But STK is going for a more energetic vibe, so it's just 2 different experiences.

I highly recommend that they step up that dessert menu. If they had cheesecake as good as Ruth's Chris we'd be more likely to go back. Their cheesecake was just frozen ahead of time I believe, felt similar to cheesecake from a fast food restaurant. Steaks were amazing though as was everything else. Sweet corn pudding is awesome.

Just before taking off, we got one more meal in at STK. The steak I had was cooked properly and tasty, and the brussel sprouts were excellent. However, we had one gripe - the BBQ bacon. It was $22 for one slice of bacon cut in half, that was just okay. Pretty preposterous. Most steakhouses are far more generous in serving slab bacon and don't even charge nearly as much. Just seems silly to do that. I know we have inflation going on but come on 😂

Can’t say enough how amazing our experience was at STK.

The private room we had was amazing - private and spacious. Perfect for a pre event meal with our team!

Matthew took care of ALL our many many requests, offer guidance in ordering the right amount of food for the table, kept our drinks full and our bellies happy. He was very knowledgeable of all the plates and on top of suggestions to make the meal even bette faith appropriate side and saunas recommendations.

The Chef went above and beyond with his culinary skills.

Will do it again for sure. Thank you STK for providing us with an amazing experience.

Unlike a lot of the other reviews, we didn’t have to wait a long time to be sat so we were placed in a little upstairs area in front of a TV. The main restaurant area had great ambience and a great vibe, but the upstairs area was lacking. The food was just so so considering the price. If I’m paying $300 for two people to have dinner, next time I will go to a place with better food(Morton’s Larry’s, Flemings, Selanne’s) . Again, the vibe inside the restaurant is great, just wish the food was.

Had the lobster and it was very watery indicating that it was frozen and it was over cooked. Cocktails are over priced. Steak was not like any other dry aged steak I have had in the past.
