    Waiter pretty much ignored us from the start, bread came out very late, little interest in following up at our table, never brought out lemon for the water, and the food was overall underdone (I didn't send it back, because by then I just wanted to get out of the restaurant as quickly as possible). Never going back...

    everything from the hostess, to the bartender, to the waitress gave 100% excellent customer service! The steak was prepared to perfection and the chilean sea bass melted in my mouth. We will definitely be back and recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

    I will start off with a positive statement that the steak was delicious and perfectly cooked. My wife said that the salmon was good and the Espressotini that I had was also very good. Beyond that, it was a very subpar experience for what was expected of a restaurant in this price range. The cold seafood Tower was worthless. The oysters were terrible. Very fishy. It was a tower for two. They only gave you half a lobster tail and it as well as the crab legs were tasteless. The shrimp was okay. Everything else I would consider poor for this price range and the service was mediocre at best. I would almost say terrible to non-existent. However, we noticed that the waiters at the adjacent tables were performing very well. Ours however, did not offer a small percentage of the information that was being given to the other tables by other staff. At this price range you expect to be waited on and pampered at the highest level. Visited another nearby restaurant the following night with the same expectation and received exactly what we were looking for and more. Would not recommend greystone to anyone and will not be returning.

    Lesson learned...always ask and clarify the cost of their special. Shocked to see a $109 charge for a bone-in filet mignon. The steak was mediocre at best and although they advertise aged beef, this steak tasted old. My wife's filet was $62 and was better but not great. Disappointed because we have had great meals at Greystone in the past. Probably will not return.

    Dined on Thanksgiving. Had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. Paid $41 for 2 drinks at the bar before tip. Had to send back the 1st steak it was overcooked and no flavor although I paid extra for truffle butter. Loaded baked potato was sour cream and cheese, no bacon or chives. Disappointing. 2nd steak was better. One diner had short ribs which were tender but polenta was very bland. Pasta dish was favorable but nothing special. I think I'll stay with Flemings for steak. Very underwhelmed.

    Our Anniversary experience was memorable! Brian began the night with us and was fun, outgoing, flexible, and showed us an amazing time. Chris took over half way through the night and kept the vibe going with his charisma. Both gentlemen were exceptional and made our night one to remember. The music playlist was smooth and energetic, but also calm and relaxing. We will definitely be coming back for dinner even if it's not to celebrate. Food was delicious and the bottle of house Cabernet was perfect. Not to mention a couple staff members taking photos of drinks took the time took take some photos of us which made my wife extremely happy. All smiles and praise from us and we will be sharing our experience with all our family and friends. Greystone knocked it out of the park!!! Cheers to a great night and superb staff!

    I booked a reservation to celebrate my fiancé’s birthday. We arrived early and were greeted by the hostesses. We sat at the bar while they prepared our table. From Robert our bartender, to Gabriel our server, we had a wonderful experience. The food, ambiance and service all far exceeded our expectations. We started with oysters, wedge salad, and filet with loaded potato, all delicious. They brought a dessert with sparkler, and we all sang happy birthday. Effort less, and experienced, is how we rate the staff. First class, and look forward to our next visit!

    If you are looking for a good steak avoid this restaurant at all costs. The food is very subpar for the money we spent. From finding a long hair in our bread and butter to a flavorless steak and bland mashed potatoes. The only decent part of the meal were the drinks. Definitely not worth $200 for 2 people. I was totally let down for a place bragging to be the best steakhouse in California. Coming all the way from CT for vacation I could have gotten a better meal at Texas Roadhouse. Highly disappointed.

    We stayed in San Diego for the Elton John concert and I wanted to find a nice Steakhouse. The Happy Hour was very nice and the food was great. We felt with the dining prices what they were, 68.00 for a Ribeye, that the presentation and including a side could be improved. We felt the BLT Wedge was just okay. We really enjoyed the bartender service and our server was good, but overall value in the dining room could be better. We would recommend the Happy Hour to friends, not the dining room.

    Our server was beyond amazing. She made our anniversary feel very special. The food was good not amazing and all our apps and entrees came out just barely warm and not hot at all. My husband had a $230 Japanese Wagyu steak and it came out slightly warm almost cold. For the amount we paid the food did not wow. I feel a bit disappointed, I really wanted to love Greystone.

    My husband and I having a weekend getaway in San Diego and just chose a random place that actually look good and Greystone sure not disappointed. Reservation would be recommended because we were there on Friday evening and they are quite busy. We got seated on the second floor which Michael was our server.Service is outstanding,nice,friendly and always make sure that we're taking care of.Not Only our server though,All those staffs that brought our food are awesome also,Good job guys! Now the most important parts,Let's talk about food. We got fried calamari and wedge salad that split in 2 small plates so we can shared.Both are awesome! Calamari was fresh and crispy the way I asked for and veggies in the wedge salad was so fresh and good amount of dressing on it. For our main course we got Tomahawk Steak which we add 4 scallops and the mushroom for the side dish.We asked for medium for our steak and we got medium (What else could you ask for from a steak place?! Which most of the time you did not get the right cook that you want but this place sure not disappointed.By the way,I add the peppercorn sauce on the side for our steak also and it's good sauce.I like it. Just one thing though,If you wanna order Tomahawk,Make sure you are willing to wait because it's take a long time to make.Take it slow with your starter would help. Are we coming back to this place?! Hell Yes Who wouldn't!

    Wedding dinner. They cancelled my reservation 30 minutes before it started since my party was bigger than 6 and I didn’t put a card down. It was made a week before and they let me know the day of. Besides that the service and food was great Happy hour drinks are good too

    Unfortunately, really tight seating arrangement so you could barely hold a conversation at your table. It was extremely loud so I would not advise this place for an intimate dinner. Service was good but it took a while to get our check because our server was so busy. Food was excellent but the prices seem to be different then what was online. Overall experience was good.

    We were really excited about eating here only to be disappointed in the first 15 minutes. Our waiter introduced himself then disappeared for a while. There was a large party upstairs and I was already getting vibes that service was going to be sub par. After no one coming g back to offer us a drink order for nearly 15 minutes, I humbly approached the 2 hostesses who were standing around and asked if we would be better off going somewhere else if the staff was overextended. One hostess quickly replied she would get our waiter and he soon reappeared and was a bit more attentive. He also apologized saying it was a shift change. My friend and I shared a salad, baked potato and broccoli and each got our own filet with toppings. My steak was rare as I like. Hers was well done and was supposed to be medium. The grey stone salad was great but potato was cold and dry. The broccolini was hard as a rock and bitter. I actually tried to cut it with my steak knife and couldn’t. I then asked to waiter to change it for the creamed spinach. That was awful. It tasted like bland leafy spinach with watery cream poured on top. It was also a very small serving similar to the broccoli at $15. What a rip off! The water did credit our bill for the veggies. Needless to say if you are spending over $100 a person for a meal, your experience should be better than poor to average.

    Great service. Steak was not as tender or seasoned as expected but ok. Medium rare came to me closer to raw than medium rare, but still good. Service was great, drinks delicious. Great ambiance . Main complaint is there was only 1 bathroom /1 stall for women for entire restaurant, very inconvenient . Long wait line to use Bathroon

    Lots of hidden fees…. Charge you for bottles of water when asking for flat instead of sparkling. They keep bringing more bottles without even asking and charge you for it. Being told the steak we want to order is 89$, discovering when the checks comes it was 109$. One steak (no sides), one pasta plate and a bottle of wine 289$, no appetizers and no cocktails. Very expensive for what you get. Would not return.

    My wife and I visited for our anniversary and for our first time in San Diego. At first the hostess sat us in a table that was a tad uncomfortable in the middle Between two large parties the manager moved us to a more secluded location and put rose petals on our table. From that point, it was super excellent. We are forever grateful for her kindness and hospitality. I ordered the ribeye and really enjoyed it. My wife ordered the filet and said it was okay. She wished it had the char on the outside like the ribeye did. The truffle fries were excellent. We were treated to a chocolate cake for our anniversary complimentary which was wonderful.
