Bob’s Steak & Chop House – La Costa
Great date night experience as always! Outstanding customer service. Excellent food. And enjoyable evening ambience.
Great Food, excellent, consistent service.
Will always go back and recomment to friends
Thank you for a wonderful dining experience! We were there celebrating my husband's birthday. The personalized menu was a really fun and nice touch. Everyone helping us was wonderful. The food was amazing. We both had the filet mignon, which was fantastic and the glazed carrots were delicious. We can highly recommend Bob's Steak & Chop House.
We went for Thanksgiving knowing that there wasn’t a Thanksgiving special but we didn’t care. If you’re looking for yummy food and great service and friendly service this is the place to go. Everyone loved their meal. Excellent!
The location was beautiful the staff and service was fantastic but the food was the real star our steaks were perfectly cooked extremely flavorful along with the sides, the deserts were fantastic and the wine list was exceptional can’t wait to make it back again
I have always had a great meal at Bob's, but this last one was fantastic. I just love this place. The food was excellent, the service was great (thanks Tom), and the drinks were great (thanks Mike).
Celebrated a birthday with family
Arrived at 6 PM and felt rushed so the staff could deal with the crowd that was coming. Fillet ordered medium rare plus was quite rare.
Bobs Steak House has a very good reputation around town and we decided to go for my husbands 65Th birthday with our family. Service was good, ambiance was nice and food was good. Just found the price tag for what it really is.... a bit more than the "other" good steak houses in town.
The signature item was a prime ribeye and it was not very good. Tough and grizzly.
The rest of the food was ok but when the entree is bad it overrides everything else.
Larry, we're disappointed to hear about your experience. We can assure you that we hold ourselves to high standards and strive to deliver the best of the best. We hope you'll give us another chance to prove that to you. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Service was excellent. Food was very good. Pricing somewhat inflated due to location and name brand.
Tom, it's nice to hear that you were impressed with the food and service, and we hope you'll be back our way again soon!. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
We come to Bob’s every time we are here from Chicago! It is the best
We love seeing you visit, and we hope you'll find yourself back our way again soon! Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Excellent service, finest quality food, attentive, friendly service. Perfect dining experience in every way. Always the best at Bob’s. Thank you!
Happy to see that you had a wonderful dining experience, Annie! Thank you for the support. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
We always have exceptional food and service in this restaurant. My husband loves the rack of lamb, and orders it every time we go. Each aspect of the meal is prepared and presented with excellence. A dependable dining experience.
We're so happy to hear that you always enjoy your dining experiences with us, Hal. It's nice to know the rack of lamb is a particular favorite for your husband, and we can't wait to welcome you both back soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Viel viel zu teuer.
Das Steak war zwar ok aber auch nicht besser als bei Outback
Dafür doppelt so teuer.
Die Auswahl an Vorspeisen beschränkt.
Die oinion rings fade und dazu gabs einfach etwas billigen Ketchup.
Alles in allem sehr entäuschend und eben extrem teuer
It is expensive but my husband and I just split a larger cut of meat and had plenty to eat. There was no extra
Charge for this.
We're glad to hear that you and your husband enjoyed your visit, and we hope to see you both again soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Excellent service, food and overall price.
We're so happy to hear you had a great visit, and we hope to see you again soon! Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
It was to celebrate a birthday.
We hope you had a wonderful time, and we'd love to welcome you back sometime! Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Overly pricey. Although food was very good, the prices are outrageously expensive. Would not return here because there are other great restaurants with outstanding food all through San Diego for a fraction of the cost. If you want to spend a whole lot of money on a dining experience , then by all means go here. Otherwise, I believe you can spend a fraction of the cost at other places in San Diego for the same quality of food and service.
While we're glad you enjoyed your meal, we're disappointed to see a review like this. We can assure you that we price everything fairly for the best cuts of meat, high-quality ingredients, generous portions, and great location we have. If you're ever in need of a wonderful dining experience, we hope you'll consider paying us a visit. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Pros: Excellent food and drink, engaging/attentive/knowledgeable service.
Cons: Dimly lit, very expensive.
Yep, we'll be back.
John, we're glad to hear that you were impressed with the attentive service, and we do hope you'll come back to see us sometime soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Was very disappointed that with a reservation we were seated in the bar considering the reservations was made a couple of weeks in advance and it was for a birthday. The service was good but it was the bartender so she was trying to accomodate all the bar patrons and check on us. The restaurant had plenty of empty tables.
Michele, we're always happy to accommodate our guest's requests to sit somewhere else. We often put couples celebrating birthdays and anniversaries at the bar as there are no children in there to detract from the special occasion. That said, if you would ever like another table, please don't hesitate to reach out to our team. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your experience and that you'll come back to see us again sometime. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
From the time we entered Bob's through the dinner, we were treated like the most important Diner's. The service was the best we ever experienced. The steaks were prepared to perfection. Our waiter was outstanding! We will be back, FOR SURE!!!
You should always feel like the most important guest, Dave, and we're honored we had the chance to help you celebrate such special occasions. I'll be sure to pass along your kind words, and we can't wait to see you and your wife visit again soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Simple Amazing all round, from the friendly and attentive service to the incredible food, this place gives the name Bob new meaning.
We're so happy to hear that you had an all around wonderful experience, and we hope to see you around soon! Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
As a New Yorker, I know steakhouses. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from a "resort restaurant" but I happily admit to being wrong. The rack of lamb was equal or better than any I've had anywhere, and I appreciate the fact that sides are not an extra charge. I also tasted the filet mignon my friend ordered and it too was excellent.
We're glad you decided to stop in to dine with us, and it means a lot to know that we exceeded your expectations. We hope to see you visit again sometime soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Food was excellent great drinks and services. Ordered filet and it was cooked perfect!
Thank you for the kind words! We're so glad you enjoyed how the filet was prepared, and we hope you'll come back to visit sometime soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Great experience all around. Attentive service, delicious food (best creamed spinach ever), and decadent complimentary birthday dessert. Grounds of property beautifully maintained and magical at night. Perfect place for a celebration.
Tina, we're so happy to see that you truly enjoyed the atmosphere and had a great experience! We hope you'll be back to join us for another celebratory dinner soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Impeccable service. Delicious food.
However, this is a dark and dreary restaurant that felt like it would be best suited for very old people.
Debb, it's nice to know you enjoyed the food and service on your visit. We do hope to welcome you back sometime soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Celebrated 20th wedding anniversary it was wonderful
We just wanted to wish you another happy anniversary from our team, Heidi, and we hope to welcome you back sometime soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Excellent meal all around! Ahi tuna was very fresh and tasty and seared just right. My spouse had the filet and probably the best tasting steak both of us has ever had.
Cary, it's wonderful to see that you loved how fresh all of the ingredients are, and we're glad you and your spouse had a wonderful experience! We hope to see you both dine with us again soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
The food was outstanding as expected. What was disappointing was the poor service in the bar area prior to dinner. The two ladies working the bar were more interested in socializing than being attentive to our beverage needs. Will return for the amazing food & great dining room service.
Kelly, while I'm glad you enjoyed your dinner, I'm disappointed to hear that our team wasn't attentive to your needs. I appreciate you bringing it to my attention, and I'll be sure that every member of our team is consistently checking in on our guests to deliver a wonderful experience. I hope that we can really wow you the next time you visit. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Great for my granddaughter’s birthday!! Even printed out a menu with her name on it! Service was impeccable and the food was fantastic!!
Rich, we're so glad the customized menu was a welcome touch for your granddaughter's birthday, and we thank you for the kind words. We hope to see you visit again soon! Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Food, service, ambience was good. The lasting impression however was how our server (Antonio) gave us our bill at the end of the evening, and neglected to mention that he has already added his tip of 18% to the tab— needless to say, we added another 20% tip on top of his gutsy pre-established tip. Then, we had given our server our Amex card to charge the bill and he took it upon himself to charge our dinner tab of $800 to our room. So now we have to worry about being charged twice: once on our Amex card and again on our room charge. Great service, good food and really bad attention to detail.
Bryce, we apologize for the mix-up, and please never hesitate to alert us if there's been some kind of mistake with your bill, so we can take care of it right away. I'm very sorry for the miscommunication, as we're known for our attention to detail, and please don't hesitate to get in touch if there's anything I can do for you. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
We were celebrating our anniversary and our waiter disappeared for 30 minutes after telling us he had an anniversary surprise at the end of our meal. I was with my daughter, her husband, and 2 yr old. Imagine wanting anything, like an extra fork, drink, etc!! We couldn't even get anyone to give us our check. When he finally showed up he offered to give us a dessert on the house but we passed on everything!
Food was good service was the WORST ever! Wouldn't go back.
Jeanne, I'm very sorry to hear that our team didn't check on your table to ensure you had everything you needed throughout your dinner. I can assure you this isn't a common occurrence for us, and I'll be looking into what happened here. I sincerely apologize for the impression we left on you, especially during such a special occasion. If you'd like to discuss your experience with us more, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
fantastic dinner sitting outside with jazz live band the waiter was excellent and food perfect
We're so glad the jazz music just added to your experience, Carolyn, and we hope to see you visit again soon! Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
We're disappointed to hear the porterhouse wasn't what you expected. We'd love another chance to show you what we're all about, and we hope to welcome you back soon. In the meantime, if you have any other feedback for us, please don't hesitate to reach out via the contact page of our website. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
We've been a member at La Costa since 1995. Bob's Chop House is a great addition not to be missed. Its' what I'd expect a steakhouse to be, quality steaks, perfect complimentary accompaniments, lively setting where you can still conduct a conversation and great service. They have an extensive wine offering and the outdoor patio and fire pit provided us seating options in the So. Calif. evenings. We have frequented the bar to share a bottle of wine and split an entree, perfect for the two of us.
I'd recommend dining at Bob's.
Thank you for recommending us to everyone and for the kind words about our hardworking team. I'll be sure to pass along your feedback to the crew -- it'll make their day! We're looking forward to your next visit. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
I ordered the 9 ounce filet and it was very undercooked and very TOUGH. It must have been a very old cow. I thought the prices were very high for comparable restaurants
We're sorry to hear that the filet wasn't quite what you expected. Please never hesitate to bring it to our team's attention, so we can make it right. We'd love another chance to really impress you and hope you'll come back soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
Delicious food, great service and ambiance. We love not having to leave the property!
It's wonderful to hear that the steaks aren't the only thing that stand out on your visits, Cindy! We can't wait for you to dine with us again soon. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
What a great experience. We went here to celebrate my husband's birthday and we were warmly greeted with birthday wishes and a menu printed with his name and happy birthday. Our waiter Jeff was very attentive but never intrusive giving us all the time we needed. The martinis are nice pours and very tasty. My NY strip steak was one of the best I've ever had and if you are going to spend upwards of $50-60 for a steak, this is the place to do it. We split a salad and the main course comes with a giant, very tasty carrot and potatoes so extra sides were not needed. We sampled the pickles on the table (in a glass jar) and the birthday dessert was the bomb. This was our first time at a Bob's steak & chop house but it will not be our last. We enjoyed a quiet booth inside but he outside patio looked lively and comfortable.
We believe in going all out for birthdays, so we're happy to hear that the extra touches just added to the experience! It's wonderful to see the NY steak was prepared perfectly for you, and we certainly can't wait to have you back. Sincerely, Greg Van De Velde, GM
