Wonderful service & great atmosphere. Right in the heart of the Gaslamp, a beautiful spot for a night out. Great appetizers, pancetta Mac & cheese was perfect. Oddly, bone-in ribeye was woefully under cooked & lacked flavor, while New York was terrific. Drinks are pricey but wine selection by staff was well considered. Overall, a good night out.

We dined at Greystone because the menu looked extremely interesting even though it was quite a few dollars more than surrounding restaurants, The waiter was rather stand-offish and almost rude. The food was well cooked and was top quality but the portions were tiny and the drinks were really expensive. Was probably worth a try but I left still hungry... More

Bartender was very friendly and did a good job on our drinks. An appetizer we ordered was served quickly and it was delicious. Our waiter was very good and attentive. We ordered tenderloin and it took longer than expected to be served. The meat was tasty but overcooked. Actually crispy on the outside. The side dishes were well prepared and... More

We saw the restaurant while walking in the Gas Lamp District and went in. Server was excellent. I had the tuna tartar which was very good. I found the filet (8oz, cooked medium) to be dry. Nothing to write home about. When the check came I was glad the company was paying (I was on a business trip) because it... More

Recommended by our hotel, it was a nice walk for us (about 5 blocks). We were seated at a great table when I told them it was my hubby's birthday (a lot of the tables are pretty tightly packed). We took a long time in deciding on our order, but the server was very patient. I ordered a steak &... More
