A fantastic meal with great service. Jason and the entire staff was awesome. Beet salad, bacon app, fries, and steaks were great, as were the manhattans. Would definitely come back for a good steak house evening.

Still the most excellent steak house on Coronado...and rivals Morton's.

We enjoyed our evening. The restaurant was quite loud. A couple of young kids were in the booth next to us as well as two huge tables of loud people. My husband was sitting right next to me and sometimes we couldn’t hear each other. The service was outstanding!!! The steaks were good but not memorable.

I had a business dinner with 5 colleagues and we ordered the chef's choice 5 course meal. The selections were amazing and I was unable to eat the 5th course which was a sin itself. A great value for the money and would highly recommend!!

Beautiful restaurant. We went into the bar area first. Happy hour menu looked great. 🤙
We enjoyed a martini and had dinner in the dining area. Matt the manager is always pleasant and professional. Our server(s) were amazing as well.
It seemed a bit quiet, even for a Wednesday. Prices could possibly be a deterrent. 🤔
Perhaps a half price bottle of wine on a specified night. Or “daily affordable specials” M-Th. In the dining area to stimulate business 👏👏👏
I could be way off. It could just be that one night.
But the bar area was jamming. 👍
Any case , food was great.
I had Waygu eye of ribeye. Spelling??? Lol🥴
Only one I have better was Island Prime. But very close. 👍🌸
Your crab legs were better. Liked the preparation. 👌
We will be back & I feel good referring you to clients & friends 💖🤙🌸 JR

The service was outstanding ! If you liked steak I think it would probably be 6 star! Looking at the menu there was sea food that’s what we went for. My crab cake was excellent but $25 for one and everything was pickled on the plate and tookaway from the flavor. Husband had sea bass it was just ok, nothing special. It was our anniversary lovely class of champagne. Biggest disappoint no creme burlee or chocolate on desert menu. Overall for us a disappointment

One of best overall meals and one of the best steaks I ever had! The service was top-notch. We were celebrating a birthday and the meal started with a complimentary glass of champagne. A small palate pleaser of an excellent butternut squash soup was provided (hope this becomes a regular menu item). We brought our own wine, but had drinks before ordering, great martini glasses. Our party of 4 ordered appetizers so I can highly recommend the shrimp and king crab cocktails. Entrees were scallops, nice and large, wagyu beef 8 oz perfectly prepared tender, and full of flavour and 2 of the 14-day aged rib chops which were the best and most flavourful steaks we’ve had. Our waiter was very attentive and provided excellent service! It is fairly pricey, but worth the cost for our special occasion. I highly recommend Stake for your celebrations.

An amazing meal. Party of 8 and we had various seafood and steak selections. Food was delicious and steaks were cooked perfect. Impressive wine selection and great service. Will eat there again the next time I’m in Coronado. Only a five minute walk from Hotel Del Coronado. Only thing not perfect is it gets a little loud when full. But that is being picky.

Another great dinner at Stake, celebrating Valentine's Day late, on the following Saturday evening.
Great greeting from the manager, Matt. Friendly conversation and terrific recommendations from David, the sommelier.
Had a creative amuse bouche of sashimi albacore with beet powder, and mini caviar crostini.
The French soup has a broth with a depth of flavors. The Comte is a perfect compliment in flavor and texture (think gooey, soft). The Oxtail wontons were a nicely packaged powerhouse of beef flavor.
A filet and 35 day dry aged New York were perfectly prepared and wonderful.
The cheesecake rivaled my own family's recipe.
Service was very accommodating to one diner's diet.
A wonderful dining experience.

We got there, and it just seemed like a mess. Hostess saw us walk in, no greeting or “will be with you in just a moment.” Then about a few minutes later, we got “checked in”. I made reservations for 8pm, we got there about 15 mins early, & was told she’ll “seat us closer to 8” & to “have a drink at the bar”, she’ll “come get us”. Low & behold, I watched 2 other couples get seated before us when they arrived after us. 8:02, I walk up to the same hostess who halfway into her “welcome” sentence realized we’ve been waiting & she goes “they’re cleaning your table right now..” Great lie, it’s what we always say in the hospitality industry when we realize we messed up. We finish our drink, then come back to the hostess only to wait & see another couple arrive AFTER us get seated BEFORE us & who only waited 1 min for their table. Some guy in a suit saw the frustration in my face & let us know “we’ll be with you”. All 3 of these couples get a lovely booth, while my BF & I get a table in a tight space where he got bumped a few times. Besides the suit guy & hostess, everyone else that attended to us was great! The food, it was good. The Valentine’s Day special, $99 per person for a 4 course meal, I wasn’t even completely full after it. So, it wasn’t worth it. Probably wouldn’t recommend after this experience (my first & last).

Our first experience at Stake Chophouse & Bar was delightful and delicious. We enjoyed happy hour cocktails before dinner - didn't get to sit out on the patio (very popular) but in the bar area. Our booth table for dinner was comfortable. We were expertly schooled about cuts of beef by our friendly, knowledgeable waiter. Our meal was excellent - from the wine and apps to the main meal and dessert. Recommend highly.

Wonderful as always. Great local restaurant. I would suggest that this caliber of restaurant offer both black and white napkins. Left the restaurant with white lint all over my black pants from the napkins. If you believe you’re the caliber of Marine Room l/ George’s make the total experience and add the little touches that bring you to the next level.
