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.

Food took way too long to come out compared to other tables that ordered after us. Charged me with the wrong check as well.

Mother’s Day Brunch with my beautiful 80 yo mom. Wagyu Beef was outstanding with Lobster Tail.. Yukon mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables and bag’o donuts were good. Jordyn took great care of us.

Our waiter alexander was horrible, he saw the opportunity when 6 of us (ladies) were looking at the menu clueless and made us order unnecessary stuff without asking if we wanted or letting us know that it was an extra charge. Kept bringing us bottle of sparkling water one after another without our consent. He just wanted to make our bill higher so his lousy tip percentage could be higher. Overall experience was so unpleasant that we would never come back. Thank you for ruining our special mothers day STK.

the food and service was excellent. the noise level very very loud music playing all through dinner. for an upscale experience I would have expected to be able to chat with my husband which was VERY difficult to do. the staff were all wonderful but we will not return as the noise was too overwhelming . it was more of a bar atmosphere.. I was expecting a upscale steakhouse experience.. with the prices we paid. however the steaks were fantastic!

We were seated within 3mins. The overall service was good but not the best for this restaurant. The food was ok we ordered the surf and turf which is an 8oz steak with a lobster tail. The steak was very very tough hard to cut and chew the steak wasn’t best comparing it to the price which was 69. We also order mash potatoes which was good and very creamy. Probably would not visit again.

STK was excellent! I will say that even with a reservation we had to wait 30 min to be seated, but on a Friday night, we got over it. In comes Alejandro/Alex our waiter and he was fantastic. He checked in on us just the right amount, was extremely friendly, cared about how we were doing and even celebrated with us! There was a DJ that had the restaurant rockin and just set the ambiance right for a great anniversary celebration. Safety was number one, with partitions and masks, so we were sure to have a good time.

Honestly, my husband and I left disappointed with the overall experience. The wait staff was very nice but the food is our chief complaint. I understand we are still in a pandemic, but likely the best thing we were served was the wedge salad. To be as brief as possible here is what we experienced: both of our steaks (10oz filet and 16oz Cowgirl filet which we asked to be prepared to the Chef's recommendation) were marginal at best. The complimentary bread was over baked but had a great dipping oil, the Yukon gold potatoes were a puree that lacked any seasoning, we were brought and charged for a $9 water we never ordered but we let it go. Creamed spinach (I swear 3 tablespoons was the serving size) and the wedge salad were the best items. Our server was wonderful but sadly he overcharged us for our meal. We live in Chicago and have been to STK there. As we were visiting family, we thought it was a good idea since we both wanted a great steak. We were underwhelmed and if pressed for my thoughts on value and quality of the meal, they just don't align. I have no issue paying $300 for dinner but I do expect great quality in the food. This just was not it. I'm hopeful for them post-pandemic to get it together but if the STK management reads/sees these reviews it may serve as fair critique to review with their team.

I went for the date night menu on a Sunday evening with my sister. We both had a really nice time. Our server Emily gave us all the best suggestions and really knew the menu and the specials like the back of her hand. She was super sweet and made our experience very enjoyable. Will definitely be coming back for brunch sometime soon!

We came to celebrate a friend's birthday and STK did not disappoint. The ambiance was great and the music was even better. We tried some appetizers that were all AMAZING, but the tater tots stood out and one of the best! We loved our server Jordyn - she was awesome, she requested some songs for us and brought the best energy. I will be going back next time I'm in Gaslamp for sure.

I had the best steak of my life at STK. They featured a Wagyu Ribeye from Kagoshima that was absolutely melt in your mouth amazing. This place does steak RIGHT!!! If you want an amazing steak, cooked perfectly that is high quality STK is your place. The only issue I had was with the side dishes. They were a little bland for me. The mashed potatoes although light and fluffy were lacking flavor. The truffle fries were nothing to write home about. As I said before if you want quality steak. This is the place!!

I love STK in any city, but my service at the San Diego location was above and beyond. My server Matt (if not mistaken) was friendly and sociable. He took my order quickly and correctly, made great recommendations which turned out perfect. Mario the manger was on top of his game, asking me how my steak was almost immediately after it was set in front of me, wanting to make sure it was cooked to my liking, also in passing he noticed I hadn’t touched my brussel sprouts he asked if there was a problem. I simply said I didn’t care for them. (I don’t like to complain about food). Mario also noticed I was a returning client, I was impressed with the fact that they take note of returning patrons.
I notified my server about half way through my meal that something came up and I had to be somewhere by a certain time. Matt timed my meal & dessert to perfection. Not only was the staff amazing but my food was the best it’s ever been, my dinner was hot, fresh, and tasted great. Thank You Matt, Mario and the rest of the staff at STK San Diego. I will be back 💯

I have been to STK in Vegas for dinning but in San Diego I went for their happy hour. I must say... I LOVED IT! Drinks were amazing. Service was great. I told our server we were only there for an hour so had fast, attentive service. All the appetizers are so delicious so we ordered 4 for 2 people. Happy hour was also verily lively thanks to the DJ who was playing all the jams. I really enjoyed STK and I highly recommend it.

The food was good, but I probably should have done more research because it was basically a steakhouse in a club. The music was very loud music which made it difficult to have a conversation or even hear what the waiter was saying.

Hello Keith, Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. STK specializes in vibe dining, so music and DJs are a big part of the scene. Its definitely more quiet during the week as well as during brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Please reach out if you would like to try us again on another day! We truly appreciate your business and hope to see you back! Nicole

Five of us got together at STK to celebrate a one year wedding anniversary, a recent engagement, and just our overall friendship. The food was great and the service was awesome thanks to our server Jordyn. There was a live DJ who played some hot tracks but it was a little too loud and difficult to hear each other. Great experience overall. Thanks again for taking good care of us, Jordyn!

A dining experience where you have high expectations that got destroyed right off the beginning with an arrogant and snotty hostess, who offered us the dogs table right next to the entrance and when asked for another, she told me you can sit outside,......dinner at 50 degrees. After telling her we would leave, not to forget to mention, we made the reservation 3 weeks prior and stayed at the attached ANDAZ Hotel, the manger finally gave us a table in the main dining area. The rest of the evening went OK, but certainly not worth $500 for two which included 2 starters, a Tomahawk Steak for 2 and a Bottle of wine for $70, 2 Cocktails and 2 sides. All other charges are up-charges. As I said, not worth the price you pay, certainly not to watch another couple sitting at a 6 Top and later towards the end a "couple" who sat next to us, with his hands anywhere but on the table! The only positive was Rafael the server who did his best to make the evening at least a little enjoyable!
