This was the best meal we've had at the steakhouse and probably the last 2 years. We both had fillets, and I had the French onion soup and my husband had the lobster bisque - it was all wonderful. We had the lobster mac and cheese and it was also very good. The issue was that our waiter was pretty... More

The staff were excellent. Our waiter Daniel was knowledgeable of menu items and helpful in our choosing our dinner and wines. Although the restaurant is a romantically dark environment it's too dark; many of the tables around us were using their smartphone lighting, as we did, to read the menu and wine list. Same goes for reviewing the bill. Wife... More

Perks of staying at the Villas there at the San Luis is that we were able to have our dinner reservation brought to us poolside at the Villas. Made the night even more perfect and the meal and service was excellent

We can not say enough about this restaurant! We have dined here about 4 times in the past 6 years or so when we are in Galveston. A MUST! This small and intimate restaurant has more unique specials! The steaks are extremely tender and cooked perfect. Service, Service, Service! Our server JD was extremely attentive. Located inside the San Luis... More

I was looking for a really special place to take my family to celebrate my daughter starting at UTMB. There were 5 of us. Based upon the reviews, I thought I found the right place. Now I wish I had kept looking. Let me start with some positives. The steaks were great cuts of meat. The atmosphere was that of... More

First visit and it was wonderful. Food was great and service, which has been spotty in Galveston, was superb with JJ as our waiter. Will return soon.

The steakhouse at the San Luis seems to be pretty hit-or-miss, when they're on they have some of the best steak I have ever had. The lobster crab risotto is divine, but when they are off, you end up with a steak that is a bit overcooked, and risotto that hasn't been cooked long enough. The service is excellent, decor... More

Omg!! That was the best steak I have ever had in my life. The best cheesecake I have ever had in my life and the best martini I have ever had in my life. If you are ever in Galveston, you must stop at THE STEAK HOUSE at San Luis. Everything about this place is perfect. Made our anniversary very... More
