STK Restaurant Review

: The talents of singular chef Mark Alba provide pretty fine fare for this quasi-frat house steak operation. People seem to come to STK for more than his notable cooking, though. Groups gather to sing at their tables, gyrate in the aisles to the DJ's incessant beat-driven music, and text, text, text. But they're having fun. Low lighting prevails; the din renders table conversation difficult. One wall of faux white brick angles against another that's mirrored. At least half the restaurant is a bar area with comfortable seating. Meanwhile, starters offer myriad seafood selections, and steaks are organized by size. We chose an eight-ounce skirt steak with an assortment of sautéed mushrooms. Two sauces, chimichurri and béarnaise, were competently composed. Among the desserts, opt for the house-made red raspberry sorbet (flavors vary). Wines by the glass are mostly from California, but the bottle list is more interesting and, of course, red and California-focused; other regions are represented, too. Got bucks? You'll need 'em.
