Larsen's Steakhouse - La JollaLarsen's Steakhouse - La Jolla

$$$$
Steakhouse | La Jolla, San Diego

Larsen happens to be one of the more quiet restaurants which is a pleasure since you can hear your neighbor talk, but this comes with a price since it's a white tablecloth dining experience and the food and drinks are pricey. We went for lunch and ended up paying $75.00 a piece and that was with two glasses of wine, a sparkling bottle of water, two pre-fixe meals, one dessert, a coffee and tea - so be prepared. Great for those on an unlimited expense account ... More

American | Downtown / Gaslamp, San Diego

My wife and i went there for lunch after already having spent 3 hours by the pool at the hotel having cocktails on a Saturday - we thought we were hungry but thought lets have an appetizer first and then order a meal - well the baked cauliflower was tremendous and way too much food (or was it the beer) anyway, we loved it and for sure will come back again to try dinner :) More

Never a disappointment dining at this restaurant! The food is delicous and the service is always outstanding. Luis is the manager of the restaurant and he treats it as if he were the owner. Ever single entree is better than the last. Highly recommend. More

Steakhouse | Downtown / Gaslamp, San Diego

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.More
