    We sat close to the bar and the pianist. It was a mixture of happy noise and great music. Our waiter described items on the menu in such a way we did not order the "usual". The Beef Wellington crust was perfectly crispy. Not soggy and not crunchy. Our wine paired well. Thank you for the advice from the waiter.

    I thought the service overall was good. My expectation on a restaurant with this reputation would be that guest not wait for 40 minutes for a drink. Other than that, I will try this restaurant again. I am sure that there were more patrons than what staff was allocated for.

    The Steakhouse is the absolute example of customer service and front house management. Top notch service and it was a charm not only receiving that level of service but also watching the managers and wait staff tend to all of their guests. attention to detail is second to none here. Cocktails and win list are excellent! When it comes to the food, it was commendable and quite good. mostly what you would expect from a fine steakhouse, fantastic salads, elegant sides, wonderful au jus and demi-glacé to accompany the main course. The lobster macaroni and cheese was the best part of our meal and was one of the best dishes we have ever had, we were blown away here. For our main course We opted for the bone in tomahawk ribeye, and while we had hoped this would be the star of the show turned out to our least favorite. It was cooked medium rare but really lacked the tenderness or flavors you would expect from an aged usda prime cut. Again not a bad steak, but for the price and expectation I would say this was the low point of the meal. Overall, we cherished the experience and the service. we had some fantastic courses with delicious flavors over our meal but I could see someone walking away with a different opinion given the price points and overall value. if you are looking for the best steak of your life this might disappoint, but if you are looking to experience the best dining service with a dinner menu full of classy, elegant options and extensive wine list to compliment the meal this is a fanatic place. The value here truly is in the eyes of the beholder, and we value everything that comes with a fine dining experience not just the meal so for us it was a winner!

    Very enjoyable evening at The Steakhouse. We made a last minute decision to book reservation and were very pleased to have been seated in a booth rather than a 2-top on the long bench seat area. Great service and wonderful meal. Placing this on our list of go-to restaurants on the west end of the island.

    Awesome restaurant! From the time you arrive till you leave the restaurant team is welcoming and very attentive in a professional manner. The complimentary bread basket with the cornbread jalapeño and bacon miniature bites were warm and delicious perfect start to a meal. Wedge salad was wonderful! Cold, crispy, crunchy with the perfect amount of dressing and the candied bacon was a wonderful addition. Filet was perfectly prepared. Do yourself a favor and order the Lobster Mac and cheese it is a must!! I will be dreaming about that dish and meal for a long time.

    Absolutely superb evening. The steaks (we had filets) were top notch and cooked to perfection. We opted for the crab tower app to share--wonderfully fresh and well composed flavors. And the sides--with many options to choose from--were great accompaniments as well. Nice wines/cocktails and excellent service. Such an attractive space--an unexpectedly fantastic meal.

    I made a reservation way in advance. I went by earlier in the day and was shown the door I would enter (by a manager). When I showed up the general manager tried to seat me in the bar. He then asked me if I HAD TO BE IN THE WHEELCHAIR. Like I'm in the wheelchair for the fun of it. He didn't want my wheelchair in his dining room. I am a 100% disabled veteran in a $50k wheelchair. They don't give those to people that are just too lazy to walk. This was our anniversary. I went through a lot of effort AND expense to make this weekend a weekend my wife would remember and with a few insulting remarks he managed to destroy that. My wife was crying, not because she wasn't going to be having dinner there (she would have been satisfied with whataburger). She was in tears because of how this general manager was treating ME. How he made me feel like a societal burden. She could see the look on my face even though I tried to hide it. This was a hateful little man that has no business in the hospitality business.

John Paul offered amazing attention to all the details before, during and after dinner. Outstanding service!! The meal was incredible, our steaks were done to perfection and the flavor was on point. May I suggest the steak toppings? fabulous! the salad and lobster bisque outstanding. Our side choices were delicious. We were very happy with the entire dining experience!

    Great food, great service, great experience! We eat here whenever we’re on the island. Tonight we started with lobster rolls that were delicious and gave me a chance to show off my chop stick skills (having spent two tours in Asia). We also ate the lobster bisque soup which is always good. Our main meal, for my wife and I, was the red snapper and creamed spinach-delicious! We finished with a birthday cheesecake. Carlos our waiter did a great job and as always John Paul made us feel very welcome. Looking forward to our next visit!

    We eat here every special occasion that we can, because The Steakhouse @ the San Luis Hotel is Fine Dining at it's finest! Our 1st post-COVID visit did not disappoint. Manager, John Paul, was attentive to the needs of each and every guest in attendance, but also making special occasions even more special (especially if it is known at time reservation is made)! In addition to welcoming each table's guests, if wait help were busy, he jumped in to assist the smallest of detail/s in dining service...as he has done each and every time we have dined there! This was the 1st time Carlos was our waiter, but he knowledgably offered the special's of the day and was able to advise details about any dish we expressed an interest in; most importantly to us, he took the time to insure that the Chef was clearly informed about my special food allergy. The Chef produced lamb chops that were juicy and cooked to my EXACT request (i.e.: pink with NO blood, and no pepper - which is hard to get from any other restaurant in Texas), and which included an eggplant side dish. I hate eggplant but ventured to try it, and found that it was an un-expected treasure...a little, sweet, pickled eggplant and mint jewel that crisply offset the savor of the lamb. We tried several ala carte sides: the seared brussel sprouts, the sauteed mushrooms/onions, and the crab/lobster risotto...each produced flawlessly delicious WITHOUT the allergy-producing spice/s (again, difficult to obtain/have anywhere else). ALL the staff there were friendly, and helpful, and insured our smallest needs were attended to, and met. Thanks, again, for a wonderful dining experience!

    If I had chosen different main course options, this would have been the perfect dinner. They refill your water constantly, they also refill your bread basket, and they give good portions of what you're paying for. I left full to the brim. I would totally come back again.

    Had not been here in over a decade. This steakhouse is an amazing five star gem. Service was unmatched, as was dark, romantic ambiance. Ricardo is an amazing waiter. He patiently worked with us to make the dining experience perfect. He timed our appetizers and entrees perfectly. The ribeye was awesome as their bernaise sauce is to die for. My wife had the snapper with crab topping and she reported it was best she’d ever tried. Baked potatoes portion can serve a family of four and are prepped to perfection. Cheesecake and chocolate soufflé were our desert choices. When soufflé prep was delayed due to computer glitch in the advance prep time, the entire desert order was graciously comped. We will be back soon. Magnificent!
