My wife and I went for our anniversary and had the chefs selection with the wine pairing. It was amazing! We ended up buying the remaining wine in the bottle from one of the pairings.

Great food, service. It is a high end experience that we definitely enjoyed.

Dinner at Stake is always a wonderful experience. The service and ambiance are unparalleled in San Diego and the food is Superb. Dinner can be a bit pricey, but the happy hour on the deck is a tremendous value and provides plenty of options for "dinner". Stake is a wonderful way to celebrate the re-opening of restaurants and the start of summer in Southern California

I will never go here again despite having been a dozen times before. Too much to type here but a synopsis: denied open happy hour are seating because we’d made a reservation. Denied seating until last person in our group arrived. Told that was due to state law and county law by manager (lies). Food was OK but at least 3 times as expensive as it should be. Asked for a Manhattan and got straight Bourbon at an exorbitant price. My bone marrow (again exorbitant price) literally contained less than a teaspoon full of marrow. I was shocked, pointed it out, and nothing was done. Will no longer go to any of the owner’s many restaurants.

It’s an expensive meal, but well worth it. Mistakes are huge so it isn’t hard for a couple to split one. Service was exceptional. All the staff were very attentive.The soup and salad was very gourmet, very interesting. The sides were generous and very tasty. We enjoyed our time immensely. We are planning to return.

Husband and I treated ourselves to a fancier dinner to celebrate the end of our vacation. Tab was over $400 and I would have rather eaten at McDonalds. EVERYTHING including dessert was so salty that I ended up swelling up after leaving, face and all. Server was nice but for food at $145+ per person it was terrible. Steak was cold, purées were gross and just salt salt salt salt.

Stake is 5 star all the way! We had an outstanding dinner - the cuisine was delicious and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend Stake for a special event dinner (in the dining room) or date night (in the bar/on the terrace).

I have eaten here a number of times before and both the food and service have been excellent. This time, however, service was a bit lacking. It took forever for us to get our entree. The table next to us came in ten to fifteen minutes after us, got their entree and were finished before ours was even delivered. The steaks were only warm and no longer hot which I surmise is only because they had been setting there for all that time. I asked for salt but the waiter left and only returned long after we had completely finished our meal. No salt. I know they could do better and should.

Food was exceptional and so was the service. If your looking at a chain such a Ruth Chris or a Fleming’s I would recommend here over them. Superior everything at this price point level. My only thing would be the stake knife presentation. It’s pretentious and over the top. 9.7 out of 10.

I ordered the $ 95.00 Steak. Had it last week and it was incredible! This week I ordered it again and it was way overcooked. Not the same cut as the three little pieces that were melting in my mouth last week.So good
Talked our friends into joining us Wednesday night. Ordered it again. Both times ordered Medium rare. First time it was rare in center perfect. Second time meat was a different cut of meat completely. Brown all all the through so dry. Tough as leather thick ... tasted and it was inedible. A big ugly bone was on the plate. It’s still in my fridge but throwing it out. No onewill touch it. Hard to cut even with your steak knife . Seems like the chef was getting rid of a terrible piece of tough brown thick awful piece of meat!

This is one of our top 3 restaurants in Coronado. Normally, we just eat apps and sides at the bar, but last night we had friends in town and ate in the dining room. It's lovely, cozy. A little loud, but that's ok.

Service was great! The waiter was great, helpful. The sommelier was very knowledgeable. We love really good wine, and are always looking for something unique and delicious from other countries for a relatively reasonable price. He is French, and turned us on to a beautiful Bordeaux that we all loved. And, he seemed to like the game of finding us something that was new, but that would be right up our alley according to how we described some wines that we know we love. He was spot-on!

The bread and salted butter were completely delicious and impossible to refuse (especially the warm, fresh, country sourdough!!). The food was all very good, but not exceptional. My husband and I both had the beet salad and the salmon. I like that the salmon was wild caught, but it wasn't great - good, but not great.

Overall, lovely experience. We will continue to go here. They have a really nice wine list! The patio is amazing for when the weather is nice. And, everyone we have ever dealt with here is very professional and very friendly!

We were at this restaurant on New Year’s Day. Talking about fine dining in Coronado, Stakes is an upscale steakhouse on Orange Street that you must visit. I’d compare it to Mastro’s City Hall Steakhouse in Scottsdale, AZ. Fine dining, premium wines, great steak and so on. When you visit an establishment like this, your expectations are high and they didn’t disappoint us. There are many aspects to highlight about this place. Like most top of the line steakhouses, there will be some wallet damage, but you will be rewarded with the highest quality food and service. This is as good as it gets in Coronado, and for that matter, all of San Diego.

Clean bathrooms. Romantic ambiance. Hip bar. Professional service. 

I had a filet, medium rare. My wife had the same. It’s the best steak I’ve had in years. Tender, juicy and cooked perfectly. 

Wood-fired Baked potatoes. Yummy! It’s worth a trip across the bridge just for that. However, those steaks did not need any side dish and would have been fine on their own.

This place ranks among the best of the best steakhouses across the country. Certainly a cut above chains like Ruth Chris. Don’t get me wrong. I like Ruth Chris but Stakes is a whole new level of dining. Overall, Stakes is a solid , elegant and fine dining experience you will not forget.

Highly recommended.

The food was great and service superb but it was out of the stratosphere in price compared to a vast experience of filet dinners
