The food at Stake was excellent. My husband's steak (tenderloin) was one of the best he's ever had. Snap peas and duchesse potatoes - unbelievable. I ordered a whole Maine lobster but it was served cold which was a surprise since I received warm butter with it. Drinks were amazing. Waiter - Nate - was amazing. My only gripe is this. The word SURCHARGE doesn't sit well with anyone. Build the price into your menu but don't tell people you're adding extra $$ to an already pricey dinner. Does that mean we should tip less because you're paying your employees more? Not a good idea. If you can get over that, which we did, this place is worth the trip.

Food was good but expensive. Had the rib eye cap steak and it was unfortunately the size of a silver dollar which was disappointing for the price. My wife had the lamb which was good.

This is one of our favorite restaurants because from service to menu it never disappoints. Once again Sigi and his team gave us very attentive service without being overbearing and nothing was overlooked. My meal began with a Guac-tail which was so good I had to have two. It was like a very sophisticated milkshake with unusual ingredients which all came together. My half chilled lobster and petite filet with gratin potatoes and sauteed spinach were perfectly prepared, but the star of the show was the baked Coronado dessert flambeed table side - very impressive with sweet and tangy flavors.

We always enjoy eating at Stake. The service and food is always exceptional. We had a cocktail and several appetizers and then split a couple filets and sides. The filets were great, as were the mushrooms and potatoes. We ended hanging for quite some time and it was very relaxing.

We went here for our anniversary dinner. We had oysters, crab cocktail, muscles, bone marrow, scallops and A5 wagu. Obviously, this was a splurge. The food was very good. I would skip
The crab cocktail because it was overpriced for one small
Leg section. Everything else was very good. Service was good except they kept trying to clear our plates before we finished our food.

Stake is our go to in Coronado. The food never disappoints. Best steaks anywhere, such a high quality product! Can’t say enough good things! Great service, yes pricey, but you get what you pay for! If you don’t want to spend the big bucks, go to Happy Hour...best on the island!

VERY, VERY IMPRESSIVE. This was an amazing experience. Food was incredible-- (even the basics like the au gratin potatoes). An amazing steakhouse with really great service (Nate rocked), seemingly more difficult to obtain cuts and a cool ambiance. I'd be hard pressed to point to ANYTHING that was not perfect. Literally.

Great mussel appetizer, scallops and crab legs. Lovely cheese plate. Sides of potatoes and snap peas were delicious. Steaks were very good. One prime rib that was ordered medium rare was a little too rare. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we will be returning. We live in Coronado and have eaten many times at our higher end restaurants. Absolutely the best place to go in Coronado.

Our evening here was a milestone for us as it was our first time dining back at a restaurant in a year due to Covid. As always, Stake didn't disappoint which is why it's always been at the top of our list. Our favorite server, Siggy, was still there and he and the rest of the wait staff provided the same great service we had remembered. I chose the special Valentine menu and every course was superb and beautifully presented. My husband had the onion soup and sea bass and said both were absolutely delicious so kudos to the chef as well. We were a bit concerned about dining outdoors on a chilly night, but the heat columns provided ample warmth and we were very comfortable. Also, all safety protocols were being followed. At the end of our evening we left having been pampered and best of all, remembered, and so enjoyed our delightful return to the dining scene.
