Food was great, nice atmosphere. Only 2 things, we had the Stake Experience and unfortunately didn’t get to select our steak knives due to too many other guests using them, so that was a bummer as it was one of the reasons we selected the experience. There were 2 other guests in our section which appeared to be regulars of the restaurant and were very clearly getting special treatment. Which is not the end of the world, but it felt a little uncomfortable as we were also dining with a ticket totaling $600 but it felt we weren’t as important as the other couple. Overall the food was fantastic, and the service wouldn’t have been as big of a deal if it weren’t so obvious the table next to us was getting preferential treatment

Worst steak dinner in many years. I selected a $ 95 steak and it came raw instead of medium rare. They try to fix may be with a deep fryer. Before this, the appetizer', tiger prawns, were regular prawns probably old and really dehydrated, very dry.

Very expensive bad experience. This restaurant is not longer what used to be. I have had dinner here many times, but it was a terrible experience today.

Beware if you come here.

Went for my birthday dinner and it was the best steak house I’ve ever been to! Food was amazing, staff was super friendly, and the atmosphere was very romantic! You have to try the chocolate cake! Can not wait to go back!

The Scallops and the Halibut were not good at all, For the exuberant price of the meal, I would have thought their would be greater value in the quality of the meal. We just won’t be back to Stake ever again.

Potential to be on the best restaurant in Sa Diego. Chef Jimenez is a genius with Wagu. His burnt leek technique. Great staff, specially the sommelier who was both knowledgeable and skilled in his wine pairing.

We had a terrific time. Must admit having read the reviews prior to our dinner I was a bit apprehensive which may seem a bit silly. However I figure if you are spending that much dough then nice seating and professional behavior is a must, turned out it was all that and more. It was our 20th anniversary and they had some extras for us which was nice. Lighting outside was a bit dim so the had portable lights which was helpful and we were able to hear one another without issue and it was busy. Net is we had nice seats, Chris was a terrific server, food was delicious(cooked just right, right temperature), eclectic wine list and just generally had a terrific dining experience. We'll be back.

Lovely dinner and excellent staff. I left my credit card with the bill and before I reached the corner outside, they had called me and informed me of my mishap. Great place to celebrate a wedding anniversary.

Excelente servicio por parte de Jeremias, Elizabeth siempre con una gran sonrisa y con ganas de servicio. Y nose diga el chef Sergio Jaramillo su comida, su calidez es excelente. Cien por ciento recomendable venir a comer con ellos y sacarse una foto que les comparto. El mejor lugar de carnes de San Diego California.

Stake was a great experience. The 22oz ribeye and taste of wagyu were delicious as were the duchess and scalloped potatoes. Hannah was EXCELLENT as was the rest of the staff. We went during our honeymoon and the team brought out complimentary champagne and dessert. Will definitely go back when in Coronado.

What an amazing experience! Perfect drinks and dinner and best service ever! Ask for Vanessa-an angel. The cocktails were perfect- a martini and a Manhattan. Then Caesar salad with fresh bread plus a palate cleanser of melon gazpacho with seasoning on the rim of the shot glass. Then steaks! A wonderful tender flank steak cooked and seasoned just right and a rolled ribeye cap steak. Superb! Great wine to with dinner from the sommelier. An outstanding dinner. We will be back again!

Everything met our expectations so we are very happy. We got a complimentary shot of I forgot, like a soup. Yum! The mussels were delicious and the salad might be my favorite Caesar salad ever. The filet mignon and lobster were cooked perfectly, his medium rare and mine medium. Nailed it. Lobster was also cooked perfectly, not rubbery or tough. To top it all off we had a pineapple rum carrot cake that was so rich ands beyond deliciouS. Excellent customer service. Our server was nice and attentive. We ate outdoors this time and I liked it better because it was quiet.

$$$$$ and worth it. Service is elegant, excellent wine selection but they about the steak. Aged NY was sublime, Wagu cap delish and Filet fork tender. All sides are shareable and flavorful. Plus the desserts, ahhhh...

Without a doubt the worst service ever. Never saw either of the waitstaff, poured our own wine all night and had to ask a table bus person to find our waiters to leave. We were told that they had a large private party that was taking all of their attention. It’s nice to know where a casual diner stands with them. We won’t be back.

This place was awesome. My wife and I were out for a special night and Stake did not disappoint. We went for the 'Stake Experience' and it lived up to expectations. The chef (Sergio Jimenez) was very creative and we loved every serving. Will definitely be back on our next visit to Coronado. (Note its not cheap, but was certainly a unique experience.)
