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.

The food was great! Loved the DJ and vibe on a Saturday night. I will say however, as soon as ordered our dinner, it’s like our server disappeared. Was very hard to get any help and when we did, it was slow and not very genuine.

Our server Sydney was very attentive and answered all of our questions. She made solid recommendations and we did not leave disappointed. My friend and I both started with the ceviche and had the 6oz filet with Brussel sprouts and jalapeño grits. The food was prepared excellently and tasted delicious. I would highly recommend this place especially for a date night.

Everything from the food to the service was excellent. Ryan who was our server did an excellent job at checking in with us and making sure everything was great. All the staff there was very helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed. I got the tomahawk and the lobster mac & cheese which is absolutely delicious. Definitely coming back here again and recommending to all my friends.

STK is an amazing place to dine. The food and service is out of this world. My wife and I went for our 1 year wedding anniversary and we have been 1 time before then and both times was great. The waiter we had this time around was Matt and he was the absolute the truth. Matt gave us a great service that night. He was able to tell us about the menu even the new changes to the menu, brought us a little bubbly for our anniversary, always checked in and made sure our dinning experience was top notch. Ask for Matt when you go. Thank you Matt and STK

We ordered the halibut and risotto. The halibut was way over cooked so it was sent back and second one was provided that was still over cooked. On top of that, the second one was strongly seasoned with salt. We were not able to eat the outside it was so salty. For $43, I expect a really well prepared fish. The risotto was ok, but undercooked so it was a bit chewy. There were also asian mushrooms in the risotto and the halibut side dish. The mushrooms were very chewy and kind of "slimy" with both dishes. The service was ok, but not on par with Water Grill, Flemming's, Maestro's, or any other high end restaurant I imagine they compete with. I've heard good things and really wanted to enjoy my meal, but with so many options for dining, I find it difficult to recommend or go back to.

Our server Ryan was excellent in all regards, however the floor manager, Tim, was completely clueless. Even though our table menu showed a happy hour price for the Justin Cabernet, Tim in all of his short sightedness maintained the position that we could not take advantage of the happy hour from our table, and rather needed to order from the bar 20 feet away. Not much of a future in restaurant management with that approach Tim! Other than that the food was on par with a restaurant of this caliber and atmosphere was modern and lively.

Another great experience at an STK restaurant. We had a seafood tower, cocktails, the beet salad and #thecloud dessert. The shrimp were exceptionally delicious, oysters were very fresh and the sauces were perfect. It was a party atmosphere with great music. They also did a fun presentation with sparklers and a complimentary round of shots for the entire restaurant - great touch! The service was great. I asked the server if I could order a watermelon cocktail (not on the menu) and he personally went to the kitchen to cut up watermelon and bring it to the bartender. They made me a delicious specialty cocktail and made me feel so special. Definitely a fun and yummy night out in San Diego.

Our party of 5 was celebrating a birthday last weekend. Overall, we had a nice and enjoyable experience. The restaurant ambiance is vibrant and sexy, with good music playing. This is not your classic steak house vibe.
A As far as the food, the seafood platter was outstanding, but the dry aged bone in NY steak cooked MR was disappointing. The steak was flavorless, chewy, and not very tender. It was served rare, not how we like it. At our table, nobody was wowed by the food. The potatoes were blah, but the brussel sprouts were tasty.
A little annoying was the fact that I immediately started receiving phone calls from New York phone numbers wanting a confirmation, even though I had just made the reservation on Open Table.
I recommend STK for drinks and maybe appetizers only.

Thank your for sharing your observations and feedback. While the ambiance and service seemed to your liking we can understand how your were disappointed with the steak. My chef and I would like to invite you back in to sample another steak off our menu as we have one of the most outstanding dry aged beef programs in the country. I will share your feedback with our reservations department and see what happened there. Please contact me at your earliest convenience so we can make things right.

From the ambiance, to the service and of course, the food was all an amazing experience! Our server Ben was outstanding, made great recommendations and was at our table all at the perfect times. Excellent!

We started out with delicious cocktails followed by a seafood tower and completed the meal with the must have spectacular desert #thecloud. Our experience at STK kept building to a delicious crescendo!

We can't wait to go back to STK San Diego.... flavors and fun. :)

From the moment I walked through the door I knew I was in for a memorable evening. A welcoming staff is one thing, but my goodness, the energy in my surroundings is another! To make it short, simple, and sweet - attentive staff, mouth-watering food, refreshing cocktails, electric energy, and an unforgettable experience. If those words alone don't win you over, then go knock yourself out at the Sonic Drive-In. Otherwise, if you want a 5 star experience, do yourself a favor and book yourself a reservation at STK.

Huge thank you to the STK staff for always providing my friends and I with incredible experiences! I'll definitely be back.

What a disappointment! The $72.00 steak was not what we expected. It was on the menu as dry-aged Delmonico, but lacked flavor and tenderness. It was nothing like a Chicago steak house steak. The side of Brussels sprouts was quite tasty (our favorite item). The wild foraged mushrooms were bland.

The whole dining experience at STK is absolutely incredible. My family and I went in for a steak and seafood dinner, we were instantly greeted by the hostess and seated to our reserved table. Our server Ryan did an amazing job tailoring a unique experience for us. We were blown away with the food that we personally thanked Chef Tim for the incredible food he had prepared. The seafood: prawns, crab legs, ceviche, and oysters were all very fresh. The dry aged steaks instantly melt in your mouth. We devoured all our food. Oh and the Bone Marrow is to die for. STK is definitely a place that we will come back to.

I had reservations at 830pm but I came in a few minutes earlier. Nobody was at the front of house but I was greeted by a waiter that was taking care of his table. After a few minutes we were seated by the host. Mario was an outstanding waiter from beginning until the end. I had the 14 oz NY steak with the Au Poivre sauce recommend by Mario. Everything was delicious. We were also greeted at our table by a gentlemen, I believe it was the manager. I thought that was respectful. We had to leave sooner due to running a business in the Gaslamp Quarter by but will we come visit again.

Very expensive dining experience. Food was just ok but definitely not worth the price. The restaurant was almost empty at aground 7PM which was not a good sign to start with. They had a DJ which was a nice touch. Service was a bit slow. Steak prices range from $40 to more than $100. For that price they are many steak house options.

Came in with high hopes and left feeling confused and disappointed. The service and management was great. The atmosphere felt like a combination of a hotel lobby / a club that is preparing to open. Not to mention, our reservation was at 7:15 and it was completely dead, a ghost town! I ordered my steak medium and it came out raw. We ordered two sides, the Mac N Cheese, and the Jalapeño Grits which were average at best. Paying $73 for a ribeye and $45 for a 6 oz, uncooked filet, is PUZZLING. They had a house DJ playing, which is a great touch... But again, it was DEAD. Having a DJ play for a total of 3 tables is a tad awkward. We felt very uncomfortable the entire experience. Paying top dollar for a meal, you should expect the experience to be great. Will not be returning.
