We had a last minute need for a brunch reservation for our group of 4, and we are so glad we chose STK. I was afraid it would only be steak, but the menu has a variety of options and the service was great - Evan helped ensure my vegan needs could be accommodated, and everyone greatly enjoyed their orders - very tasty, innovative and fresh. The decor is really cool, good music, great crowd, and we were all really pleasantly surprised!! Will definitely go back!!

Made a reservation but not sure I needed to. The seating is open, first come first serve which is odd. When we got there a hostess did greet us and checked our name off the list but then told us to find a seat. It was the last table that would fit a party of 5. She also told us to order from the bar but when we sat down a server greeted us which contradicted the hostess but made us laugh. There was a DJ playing music which we loved but it was extremely loud! I wish it would have been a little lower for my taste. After ordering our table got a number. Our server was tentative and very nice. Much better than having to order from the bar. The flatbreads were delicious, fries were bomb, the Palo Me (I think that’s what it was called) cocktail was very good! Unfortunately the burger was very dry and the bun was stale. Their dress code of “Upscale casual” is silly when you get a number after order/have to order from the bar/seat yourself. Weird mix of trying to be fancy but just not. I also wish they had more greenery up there. I think it would give the space a lot more value. Overall it was a good night!

There for brunch, it was good. Their covid accommodations were strange, it strained the bar tenders and didn’t really give them the ability to provide quality service. Music was SO loud for a Saturday morning, no one could hear anyone!

I have never been so disappointed by a Sunday brunch! It’s like ordering TASTELESS food but paying for a 5 star meal. Gross. Even the salad is TOTALLY tasteless (even with the dressing). Order at the bar... then when ur done go back in the line and wait 15 minutes (while people ahead of you are still trying to figure out what to try from the crap menu) just to ask to pay for your ridiculous $97 bill for 2

There’s no reason for STK rooftop to have reservations. There is no service available to seat you, to take orders, or to help other than the bar. When you arrive, you seat yourself. If you have a reservation and there are no seats, too bad. There are no host or wait staff. You order your food from the bar. You go to the bar for refills.

When my family arrived for our reservation on the last evening of our vacation, the hostess said we must be mistaken because she didn’t have us in her reservation book. After I showed her the email confirmation she begrudgingly asked us to wait outside while she checked into it. 15 minutes later she came back out and said they couldn’t seat us because my 12 year old son should be wearing khaki shorts instead of cotton navy blue pants. My family was dressed up! When a restaurant cannot take accountability for their own mistake and then take it a step further and blame their customers, they should not be in business.

False advertising, not a reservation for a table, it's all open seating for walk-ins and reservations, so it's pointless to have a reservation. But I guess you get 100 points in Open table lol.

When we walked in, we were looking around for the host. What’s the point of having made a reservation when management ended up making it open seating? So pointless. My girlfriends and I were expecting a fun rooftop dinner, but we have to order our food through the bar and they only had bar food? We left after 10 minutes very disappointed.

I rarely post reviews about places because I know that certain restaurants have rough nights or days. This post is especially for the manager to see because my fiancee and I were so disappointed with the way we were treated by the host. We made a reservation in the morning for an evening dinner. I called an hour before the reservation to confirm and the host did not find our reservation even though we got an email confirmation, and was extremely rude about it. She hung up on us before we could even speak, she didn't answer our calls, and no manager has returned our call after leaving a voicemail. We drove 3 hours to come to this rooftop restaurant and to be treated so poorly by an immature host/business makes me feel like it's well-deserved to put a terrible review for this place. Would not recommend.

Breakfast was tasty and fair priced, great views of SD. Service was slow though, you have to check in with the bartender, and order at the bar and it seemed like he was working by himself which is why the service was slow, he finally got someone to help him after like 30 minutes, we got our mimosas after the food which is crazy. But overall I would give it another try based on the flavor if the food and views.

Your food is absolutely way overpriced. It does not match the caliber of the hotel setting at all. Every food item tasted like it came from a frozen bag and was microwaved. A waste of money and time. The view is outstanding, please make the food better to match the quality of the ambiance and hotel. Whoever is in charge of the food/menu should be fired. Super disappointed.

Not a bad date environment. My wife and I were amazed of how beautiful the scenery was. However, the menu wasn’t not up to par. I truly think a view like that needs an updated menu. Cheese burger, Mac & cheese, and hot dogs is a kids menu. I would have enjoyed a better menu that contributes to the environment. I will say that the services was amazing. Staff were helpful, caring and quick.

The best thing about this place is the view. I’m not picky when it comes to food, so it didn’t bother me when this place has mediocre food reviews. HOWEVER, the food here is the most basic food I’ve ever had at a restaurant, bar, pub, etc. I can’t believe I spent $80 for a pizza, Mac & cheese, and 2 alcoholic drinks. I probably won’t ever go back.

The amount of money our table paid on food and drinks was ridiculous. I was told a charcuterie board was not considered food and since there were 5 people who all wanted drinks we had to order at least 4 plates of food . Never heard of this special rule before. Likely will not come back.
