Steak doesn't get any better! I had filet mignon and my husband had New York strip, both done to perfection.The ambiance is modern and warm. The wait staff is courteous and efficient. I highly recommend Stake.

Best steak house on Coronado with a number of cuts of beef that you won't easily find other places. It also has a great wine menu.

We had a late reservation and the staff were all very attentive and helpful. The customer service was excellent and the food was delicious. One of my favorite Steak places for dining. New York Strip was perfectly cooked to a medium rare, just how I love it. Ambience was beautiful and noise was low and easy to have conversation. Highly recommend!

I live near Beverly Hills, home of some of the best steakhouses in the world. None of them hold a candle to Stake! This was by far the best bone in rib eye I’ve ever tasted. Sheer heaven. And the service could not have been more perfect. If you like steak this place is a MUST.

Disappointing. High prices, but of our two steak entrees, one (New York strip) was well cooked and seasoned but otherwise mediocre and not very flavorful, the other, an "end cap" rib eye was extremely tough and was sent back. The attentive wait staff could not compensate for the below average steak quality.

This was our second time here; the first was excellent. This time, my steak was excellent, BUT my wife's 35 day bone-in ribeye was terrible. She didn't mention it at the time, so I didn't know until the next day when I ate her leftover. The steak had tough membranes and what I think was thin gristle running through it, making it impossible to cut a piece to eat that could be completely chewed. My wife isn't a complainer, so she didn't mention it at the time - and, we were headed for a play after dinner so there was no time to wait to see if they'd prepare another one that was edible, anyway. But, there is just no excuse for serving a piece of meat that is this bad.

We’ve been to just about every major steakhouse out there. Stake was highly recommended by an acquaintance at my gym. We had a great server, and that’s about it. As no two restaurants, or chefs, are the same, we asked about their difference between rare and medium rare. We were told rare is red and cool; medium rare is red and warm (and the chef’s recommendation)... so we went with it. Our $60 and $64 steaks came out charred and crispy on the outside (red flag for what’s inside) and medium well - at best - on the inside. Once we cut into them, they were 90-95% brown from being over cooked. Our server returned them to the kitchen, and noted that never happens. It took over 20 minutes for new steaks, which was another red flag that they’d be over cooked yet again, which they were. By any other standard, they showed up medium, still charred on the outside and as a result too much brown meat on the inside. We just ate them as we were so hungry. Meanwhile, it took 15 minutes for our second drink to arrive, while we waited for our steaks to cook too long. Then the crispy (as per the menu) Brussels sprouts arrived again, cool and mushy. Granted the manager did stop by after our first steaks were sent back, and he had two tomato and burrata cheese plates sent to hold us over. But $332 later, they did not offer to take a round of drinks off our bill, especially since they took forever too, or a complementary dessert, as a gesture for us to hopefully consider returning. We had let them know it was our first time dining there based on a recommendation, which we should have taken more literally, as it was technically for their happy hour. Hands down, Ruth’s Chris blows Stake out of the water, as does Born & Raised. And both have better prices. While we were excited to add a new place to our rotation, loyalty & consistency clearly have their advantages.

My husband had the surf & turf and said it was good, but the lobster was a bit chewy. I had seared ahi and although it tasted ok, I expected it to have a great flavor. Unfortunately it was quite bland. For the price of that restaurant I certainly expected more.
