We were a table of seven people for dinner
The menu was hi tech an illuminated screen which made it easy to read. Just as well as the lighting is quite low. This is a Steak restaurant however I did not feel like
Meat so I ordered a Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna extra rare. It was wonderful so fresh
and tasty. It came with Asparagus &Carrots
The menu actually had quite a variety of fish.

Anniversary and I had a terrific experience at Donovan's ...From the reception to the tea order to entrees and the surprise anniversary dessert, everything was perfect. Thank you, Brandenburg, Jose, and Anthony!

Great classic steakhouse right in the center of the Gaslamp District. The Au Gratin potatoes were the best I've ever had. Tons of layers and cheese. Delilsh! Steaks were also very good. Prime aged. I'd definitely come back. Service was excellent and the dress code was pretty laid back which I liked. Overall an excellent experience.

This is the BEST filet mignon ever. The quality of the meat, taste and preparation produced the best tasting steak ever. I like to cook but I will never get the quality and taste of a steak that I had at Donovan's The service was great as well and enjoyed a wonderful meal and evening. If I am in San Diego I will definitely go to Donavan's for dinner.
