Butcher Shop Steakhouse - San Diego

Reminiscent of a classic Chicago-style steakhouse, The Butcher Shop features only the finest quality mid-western aged steaks and chops, charbroiled to perfection over a mesquite wood-fired grill. In addition to the USDA Choice & Prime Beef steaks, the extensive menu also is highlighted by Angus Prime Rib, slow-roasted to retain its tender juiciness, as well as veal, chicken, lobster tail, king crab legs, and shrimp entrees. The dessert selection is nothing short of decadent, and there is a full bar and excellent wine list. The ambiance is elegant, warm, and intimate with rich dark wood paneling, comfortable leather booths, gleaming brass, beautifully etched-glass panels, and a cozy fireplace. The gracious and attentive service staff will anticipate your every need and ensure that your dining experience exceeds your highest expectations. Whether you visit for lunch, dinner, or just cocktails & appetizers in the lounge, you will soon list this among your favorite dining destinations.

"Loved the ambiance but service was very slow. The food was ok but nothing outstanding.
The bartender was cool. She was swamped but still took the time to explain Happy Hour drinks.

"This place was perfect. I left a note that I was going to ask my girlfriend to marry me and they set me up right in front of the fireplace. The service was absolutely fantastic and food was great! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting to spend with my future wife. Thank you so much."

"The food was good, but the service was terrible. My husband and I went to The Butcher Shop for Restaurant Week wanting to try something new. The initial service was fine, but when we were still eating our entee the waitress asked if she could put in our dessert order. Then when we got our dessert and we also got the check. We were slowly eating and she wanted to give us a box and she asked if the check was ready. We felt like she was trying to rush us out even though the room only had 2 other tables with people at them. It left a bad taste in our mouth. Without the Restaurant Week deal the food is not worth the expense."

"This was not my first time here but it was my first time during restaurant week and also first time coming with my boyfriend. The food was great and so was the value although I was a little skeptical at first because the portion of the entrée seemed small. But with 3 courses it was very filling and also very tasty. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others."

"I've been hearing about The Butcher Shop for some time now. During Restaurant Week, my fiance and I decided to give it a try. The restaurant didn't seem that busy in the dining room, but service lacked. It took almost 15 minutes to get a glass of wine. The food took over thirty minutes to get, which the waitress kept coming by an apologizing, although there wasn't any type of compensation on the bill. My filet mignon was under cooked and my finances was over cooked and the mashed potatoes were soupy. The carrot cake was good, but the creme brulee was overly burnt and we could taste it.
Unfortunately, we will not be going back, nor recommending anyone."

"I was really disappointed in the food this time. The meal was just okay. The extra KING Crab leg for $9 was a joke! I wish I had taken a picture so everyone could get a good laugh. I was served a pencil thin small crab leg cut into 3 pieces. There was nothing to this, they must have taken it from a new born King Crab! the mashed potatoes tasted like they came from a box!
I have been going there off and on for years and I usually am happy but this I think was my last time. Very disappointed.

"Might have been overbooked due to both Restaurant Week and early Sunset diners. Had a reservation and were seated within 5 minutes. Server did not stop by table for over 15 minutes. After that servic was good. Food was excellent and good value."

"The first time we went here was very lovely. The second time they seated screaming children next to us. Also served us very burned veggies. I would have thought with the price we have to pay and the atmosphere, that they would have a separate children s section. Also to never serve burnt veggies. I don't believe we will be coming back anytime soon. Very bummed about our experience...."
