Our waiter, Jeremy, was outstanding and extremely knowledgeable about the menu, wine and food pairings. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the ambiance was relaxing. Definitely would recommend the dining room experience with Jeremy!

The Lamb chops were out of this world . Add the sautéed Brussel sprouts for a treat . The mixed drinks are creative . .Order anything with cucumber juices . The Red Wine suggested by our server was perfect with the rack of lamb . We were so full that we skipped desert ,,

Our server, Nate, I believe that was his name. He was absolutely amazing, fun, and knowledgeable. Even went out his way to make sure the Birthday girl got a slice of chocolate cake.

I was disappointed when I reserved my table over 5 days prior to arrival, get confirmation of reservation, and I even call ahead to ensure reservation is still good and I get there and have to wait to be seated. Yet, someone who just "walked up" and asked for a seat for two got seated before us. Very disappointed.

Apps were great, meal was ok. Had the half lobster and wedge salad to start and as said they were great. As for the meal when you spend that kind of money on a steak you expect it to be great. I had the 14 oz Wagyu from Idaho. While it was good it wasn’t what I expected. Ordered medium rare and it was much more on the rare side. Having had Wagyu on numerous occasions at other steak houses this one had much more chew to it. For desert we had cheese cake and it was warm. It may just be the way they serve it but again wasn’t what we expected. It could have just been a bad night as the AC was not working in the restaurant either. A little disappointed given it was our 5 year anniversary.

We had our anniversary celebration dinner here tonight and it was a fabulous experience. Our server Nate was wonderful and attentive as was the other staff. They gave us a surprise anniversary dessert which capped off a memorable evening. The Rib-eye and filet were cooked to perfection!! Thanks a bunch!!!

We had such a wonderful time at Stake last night. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, everything from the service, the ambience, the food- everything is so spectacular. Great for special occasions but definitely just as great for business dinners, dates, family dinner etc.

We did the Stake experience last night and it was amazing. Make sure to bring your appetite and not be in a hurry. Our meal was 3 hours long with 5 different courses!! Not an everyday thing but we were on a staycation and it was something different.

We enjoyed the steak experience, it’s a lot of food and certainly pricey… but fun to let the chef take over. The seafood first course was impressive. I also loved the lamb, bacon, truffle, berry 3rd course. There was a lot going on for a little dish, but i liked it :) the steaks was also very good. We took home leftovers.

Reasons for less than 5 stars: We dined outside and didn’t like the loud music/night club vibe - i think it kind of cheapens the experience unless you have the best, trendiest music (most of the hits were about 10+ years old) and mostly it was just too loud for us. Also, we weren’t on the main patio, and were to the side… so super loud music without the bustling atmosphere of other guests is just a little awkward.

Service was also a bit slow/uncoordinated, which was kind of funny and we didn’t mind. Perhaps since we were seated in the side patio, out of sight = out of mind? We really liked the staff, but a more critical guest might fault them for being out of sync. I hope everyone on Yelp keeps in mind that most restaurants are under staffed right now and have to deal with ever changing pandemic protocols. So, I rarely fault the staff for my experience. They were very friendly and certainly elevated my rating in this case.

$80 steak was so encrusted with salt it was not eatable. They offered to remake but said no, they didn’t take it off the bill. There are much better steakhouses in San Diego/Coronado which are a better value.

My Scallops were over salted. I don't care for the presentation as they were cut in half. Too many "garnishes" on the plate. I don't need different sauces with scallops that already have a natural distinct flavor. Keep it simple.

My friend had your 8oz Filet Mignon. He said it was good but was very surprised with such a small cut served on such a large plate. It was laughable.
