Galveston, TX – The Steakhouse has been awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Rating for the year 2009. Restaurants at this level offer a distinctive fine-dining experience marked by high-quality ingredients, creative presentation, and attentive service.
The Steakhouse is part of a select group of AAA Four Diamond Award winners. Just 3.9 percent of the more than 31,000 AAA Rated® lodgings and 2.8 percent of the 27,000 AAA Rated restaurants were awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond designation for 2009.
“We are honored to be recognized as a AAA Four Diamond establishment,” said Jon Paul general manager.
“We are committed to providing a premier dinning experience to all of our guests by consistently exceeding expectations. This award acknowledges the hard work and dedication of our staff year after year,” added Steve Ratier, Director of Food & Beverage.
Featuring an innovative, Gulf Coast-inspired menu, top-notch service and a chic yet laid back atmosphere, both The Steakhouse and The Bar at The San Luis Resort, Spa & Conference Center are getting an upgraded look just in time for Spring.
“Our goal is to match the mood of The Steakhouse and The San Luis Bar with the flair of the menus,” said Paul.
The Steakhouse features sleek additions including one-of-a-kind handmade vases, glass art and new chandeliers. Ornate, beaded glass and a contemporary explosion of corkscrew amber glass pendants adorn the walls, while chairs covered in plush fabrics with hues of brown, green and gold compliment the restaurant’s original color palette.
Adjacent to The Steakhouse, The San Luis Bar also received a dramatic upgrade with added energy and a transition to a classic, yet modern look with bold patterns in shades of brown, green and linen.
“AAA Four Diamond Award winners represent an important tier of the hospitality industry, offering guests superior experiences with a high level of hospitality in luxurious surroundings,” said Michael Petrone, AAA director of Tourism Information Development. “To achieve and maintain this level of service is an amazing accomplishment, and AAA is pleased to honor The San Luis Hotel, Spa & Conference Center.”
