Greystone Restaurant Review: For meat, seafood and well-crafted libations in the Gaslamp, Greystone is the place to rendezvous, given its sizeable martinis, 48-ounce porterhouse steaks for two, Maine lobsters and white-tablecloth setting. Run by the owners of the Gaslamp’s Panevino and Trattoria Portobello restaurants, this place incorporates Italian-tinged dishes, such as duck and pheasant ravioli and linguine with Dungeness crab, into a creative, eclectic menu that also includes short ribs braised in Cabernet Sauvignon, served over couscous. Meat sauces run from béarnaise and bordelaise to homemade ketchup, and portions tend to be huge. The Kobe-style flatiron is accented with melted Maytag blue cheese and mushroom Cabernet sauce. Host and partner Kevin Ward, formerly of the San Diego Padres, assists guests with navigating the intricacies of the wine list, and has a suggestion for every occasion.
