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.

I was in SD by myself and a little leery to book based on the reviews re the service but decided to chance it.

They must have just had an off night that prompted the poor reviews - everyone at STK was delightful! The hostess was sweet and friendly, the manager stopped by to check on me, and since I sat at a bar table - Connor the bartender was my server and he was amazing! He ensured that the wine I ordered came from a freshly opened bottle, when he noticed that I wasn't really eating my fries I ordered asked if they were not what I was expecting (they weren't - I thought they would be thin cut) and brought out different ones!

I had the Caesar salad, wagyu hanger steak, and french fries. Food was delicious and expertly (and quickly) prepared.

The vibe is a bit more modern than your typical high end steak house - great playlist!

I will definitely be back next time I'm in SD.

I received the best table side service in all of my dining experience ! Brought to me by Anthony himself; the guy was mind blowing. He embraced my family by engaging my 2 year old son in the menu and celebrating Mother’s Day! Furthermore, his menu delivery pitch is passionate and makes you want to spend every dollar. In short when you have great service it makes the food taste that much better. OUR EXPERIENCE WAS GREAT !

Took my wife and children here for Mother's day. Completely terrible! Our server James was very pushy with ordering items which we quickly noted to be ones that were highly priced. Like a car salesman, very determined to get a sale. He also never returned to refill out water. Appetizers and steaks were very mediocre and they are supposed to be known for their steaks! So sad. We are never coming here again.

We were sorely disappointed in our time at STK. It was our first time there but have been to many steakhouses in time past. I want to be clear that the server, Cooper, was outstanding. We were tad bit alarmed from the beginning because there were no observations of CDC protocols AT ALL. Every table was occupied and there were crammed together.

The food......the food arrived cold at our table. My wife'sw steak was incredibly overcooked. She requested somewhere in between medium and medium well. The steak came very well done and dry. My steak was ok....very well done on the outside quarter very red inside. We sent my wife's steak back. The second steak was much better.

When I got the bill, I didn't think anything about it. I just looked at the 20% line and wrote used a number close to it to make the bill even. The bill said that 20% of $267.22 was $75.60. I wrote $74.78 to make the bill $342. Yesterday, I looked at the receipt and my accounting brain said.....75 cant be 20% of 267......2 times 26 is $52+1.20=$53.20 (somewhere in there). So I tipped $21 over what should have been.

So, we will pass on STK.

Food was ehh. Way over priced. On weekends they only serve breakfast and steak till 3 pm. I asked for a lunch menu and was told no. Will not be returning. Definitely not worth the money you spend. Go somewhere else. The water is expensive.

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!!
