That's weird. I always thought Circus Circus was a lower-tier hotel.

Carnevino is nice. A lot of meat. Can't complain about it. I like it more for its food other than steak though.

The seafood tower at Mastro's isn't a set price... it depends on what you put on it. You have to build it to your own preferences.

Ironically, my favorite steak anywhere is this place called Pinnacle Peaks located in Santee (a town in San Diego). It's cheap and awesome. No frills restaurant - famous for cutting your tie off you if wear one. It will cost you $20 or so for a 22 ounce porterhouse.


Not there anymore, they moved from Santee to a smaller place in Lakeside and then shut down completely.

Best steak I have had in LA by far is at Chi Spacca.

Cut #2, then Mastros. I also like Wolfgang and the Palm, though I usually wind up with Lobster there.

I will also say that the Cajun Prime Rib at the Ivy is superlative.

Ruths Chris and Flemings bore the hell out of me.

What's wrong with Ruth's Chris?

The steam is fine IMO. But the decor.... man, not sure if its the one I went to, but dated and boring.

I'm a Mastros guy myself. Never been to Cut though.

That's weird. I always thought Circus Circus was a lower-tier hotel.

yes its lowest tier resort on the strip but its steakhouse is very popular due to its relatively cheap prices and its steaks are arguably better than a large amount of steakhouses on the strip mostly due to it being grandfathered into being allowed to use a wood grill.
They are good but I only visited once because I found the rest of their menu uninspiring with sides that are outback steak quality. I rather spend a little more where I can get superb appetizers/sides/desserts that are worthy of a high end steak.

From the east coast, the Boston steakhouse experience is so-so. Morton's was terrible, avoid it all costs. Capital Grille was decent.

The best was Peter Luger in Brooklyn, but my last experience there was terrible. It could be my fault though; never go to a steakhouse on a Sunday night. The executive chef is probably taking his day off.

I've only been to Mortons and Flemings so I voted for Mortons.

I have to try Ruth's Chris place now since it has the most votes.

On a side note, has anyone been to Peter Luger Steakhouse in NYC? It's one place I really want to try because I hear so much good story about the place.

Other places in Manhattan (note: Brooklyn is one of the Boroughs that comprise NYC):

The Palm (the original): Great atmosphere, the graffiti on the walls is iconic of the good old days, when The Palm was inhabited by journalists. They actually have a menu (that's new). Food is just ok, but go there for the historical merit.

Smith & Wollensky: An institution. Good, but not in the same league as Peter Luger.

Sparks: This is where Big Paul Castellano of the Gambino crime family got rubbed out. Decent, but I feel like there should be a plague or something commemorating the hit.

Delmonico's: I suppose this was a once-great steakhouse. It sure fooled me when I dined there.

What's wrong with Morton's? Would you say it was worse than The Palm and The Capital Grille?

The big strike against Morton's is its reputation. The steak was just so-so, which didn't approach my level of expectation. How bad? The lump crab was actually better than the steak; for a steakhouse that originated in Chicago, that is an act against nature. The Palm (the original) was maybe on a par to slightly better, but then you go to The Palm for the ambiance.

The Capital Grille was surprisingly better.

Go on weekdays. I've found the portions tend to be slightly bigger and better.

I've been to both The Palm in DC three times before and The Capital Grille once. The Palm is just okay-- not anything special. I felt like The Capital Grille was worse. I would say the Irvine Ruth's Chris was way better than either.

BOA in Santa Monica is also pretty good.

Keen's was a good place when I went there. They're more famous for their mutton chop but they make a good porterhouse.

Yea. It sucked after they moved. Too bad. Their old building is still empty.

I just went to Peter Luger's yesterday. It beats every one of the restaurants in this poll. One of the best steaks I have ever had. I had a really good ribeye at this restaurant called twist in Las Vegas. I like this steakhouse near Anaheim I've been to twice. It's called ranch or ranch house. Always forget the name, but really good.

Prime rib isn't steak though. It's a roast, which is quite different.
