This is a great Steakhouse. I had the Baseball Sirloin and my wife had the Filet Mignon. Both were excellent. We also had the garlic mashed potatoes and fresh corn. They were excellent as well. Desserts and drinks were also great. The Hostess and her...More

Server was prompt, friendly and cheerful. Grilled swordfish dish tasted great. Outdoor seating offered a nice view of downtown San Diego, with no detractors. Somewhat small selection of dessert offerings.

Takes a lot to get excellent in my book but a very good to these guys is not charity. We showed up late for our reservation (wrong turn in unfamiliar part of the city) and it didn’t even phase them. Table ready to go. However,...More

We were both thoroughly disappointed. My coworkers sea bass was undercooked and very fishy. My carbonara was mediocre at best and to top off the dinner my martini glass had a lipstick mark on the rim. The finale was the long wait for our check.

The waiter was friendly and promised the steak would be the best of our lives. He was absolutely wrong. The filet was good, but it was just a typical filet. I've had some that practically melt in your mouth and this was not it. The...More

Got right in, did not have a drink everything is ala carte. Had steak and crab cakes to share. Ended with the key lime pie, very good. To quick to remove your plates. Had garlic mashed and mac and cheese for the sides.

Went there for our anniversary. I had Rack of Lamb - so juicy and delicious. My husband had Filet Mignon, melted in your mouth. They served us creme brulee for dessert. Best dinner ever!

Give it a shot- but you can park on the street- finding a space is like rolling the dice in Las Vegas, plenty of paid lots in the area.
