Best Steakhouse in TO

Taking a client to dinner and he has requested steak. I know this is a very subjective question but any thoughts on the best steakhouse in town?

  1. You can get a great steak at Ruth's Chris Steak, and Barbarians or Carmen's. Bring Money.

    ...but for great steak and good value I really enjoyed the steak at La Palette in Kensington Market.

    Mouthwatering, tender and delicous.

    Casual comfortable and fun place really !!

      I would recommend the older Toronto Steak House's such as the Old Scott House, Zorro's or La Castile.

    2. I would second Ruth's Chris and have also enjoyed both Barberians and Carmens. Ruth's Chris is a little more modern than the other two. I have not had good luck at Mortons though.

      1. Hy's is also up there but for a melt-in-your-mouth steak it has to be Ruth's Chris. It's really like eating beef-flavoured butter.

        1. What about Harbour 60, I have just been told that is also good, any comments?

            Yeah for sure...go for the New York strip at Harbour 60.

              2nd the rec for Harbour 60 or is that 3rd rec? Either way, that's my first choice for steak. Next choice would be the rib steak at Black Angus. Then comes Hy's. Barbarians & Ruth Chris were okay, Carmen's I found too garlicky and Morton's was just average.

            2. Barberians is a bit to old school. But still very good and has a very resonable price (the steaks aren't a la carte). Ruth Chris and Mortons is more commercialized (its everywhere in the world). I would too recommend Harbour 60. The steaks are perfect and the atmosphere and service is perfect.
