Here, we're in the business of Steak. Real Steak. Not the cookie cutter, run of the mill stuff. Our steak is our passion, and the only reason we're here is to show you what you've been missing out on.

We've built our own dry-aging facility to completely control the outcome of our steaks. Everything here has been meticulously tweaked and tinkered to bring out the best in the meat. Only when it's reached it's peak flavor potential do we prep our cuts for cooking. Our expert chefs work the fire and the forks to ensure that perfect cook.

Then it gets to your table. When that fork first pierces the meat, and that knife slices through in that first cut, your eyes get to feast first at that juicy pink center. Then, it's just bite after bite, letting that perfect cook release the flavor of perhaps the best steak you've ever had. At least, we'd like to think so.

We're just a call or a drive away.

Really very good

Kris wanted steak for his bday. Don't think we could have done better than Vail. Much better than many of the top national chains. Meat cooked to perfection. All 4 of us enjoyed, the meal, the entertainment, and the warm friendly service of Heidi. We will be back for more when in town.

We're heading down to La Jolla to celebrate our anniversary and we caught quite a bit of traffic. We felt we wouldn't make it in a reasonable amount of time for dinner so we started searching for a good sit down restaurant. Thankful for today's technology we found Vail Ranch Steakhouse and made reservations for 6:30 over the phone. The... More

Elegant, Classy, Warm and Welcoming are the first words that come to mind to describe Vail Ranch Steakhouse. They hosted our daughter's wedding and our experience couldn't have been better. The room itself is beautiful in warm colors and table placement can accommodate large groups easily. Rony was amazing. She was so accommodating, communicative, and her attention to detail is...

We chose Vail Ranch for New Year's Eve 2015. One of our children suggested it. We were very pleasantly surprised. We arrived at 6pm and was taken immediately to our requested booth. They were very busy and only one waitress in our section of six tables. She did an excellent job considering the number of people she had to attend... More

Six of us were here for dinner, mid-week. It was not very busy but the service was TERRIBLE - slow and unfriendly. The food was less than average and overpriced. None of us would ever go back. Very disappointing.

It's very disappointing for me to read this. It sounds like you caught us on an off night, and I apologize for that. We are usually quite speedy and serve up dishes that folks really enjoy. It's unfortunate that this wasn't the case when you stopped by. Hope you'll give us another shot! Take care, Guillermo, General Manager More

They were expedient with my order. The decor was lovely. The fee was a bit pricey. This is an upscale restaurant without being snooty
