Best Steakhouse in Westchester?

One of our companies vendors is looking for a really great steakhouse in Westchester to host their holiday party in mid January. They usually go to Ruth's Chris in Long Island. 30-55 people.
Any suggestions?

  1. Ruth's Chris in Tarrytown
    Morton's in White Plains

    1. Others have spoken about steakhouses here at length, but some of my favorites:

      Willett House (ask for Quinn if he's still there);
      Ruth's Chris;
      Tollgate Steakhouse.

      Frankie and Johnny's has been noted.

      Oh, and based on price, I would stay away from Mo's.

      By the way, if you want amazing steak, but can take a LOT of noise, try Pace Steakhouse in LI, if you choose to stay there.

        I second Willett House in Port Chester. My wife and I each had our 25th anniversary parties for work there. They have private rooms for larger groups. And we've been there numerous times on our own and with friends.

        Excellent service and great food. The shrimp cocktail is marvelous. Big meaty shrimp and a cocktail sauce with a GREAT kick!

      2. I'm personally not much of a ruth chris' fan, though I admit to not having been to the one in Tarrytown. But I assume they are the same everywhere? Like others on this board, I do really like the Willet House. NYC steakhouse prices, but you do get a similar quality.

        Here's a very good, very recent discussion on this same topic. Good recommendations there:

        Good luck.

        1. Without a doubt, Willet House. Atmosphere, service, food. We love it.

          1. Thought the steak at Flames in Briarcliff was excellent, although I have only been there once. The sides were not great, although I enjoyed the beet salad very much(special salad that evening). I would try it again.

              What are the prices like at Flames for dinner? The website doesn't list dinner prices, and I'm wondering how special of an occasion it would have to be for me to get my boyfriend to take me there!

                my somewhat faulty memory remembers mid-high 40s on a t-bone, and mid-high teens for the tuna appetizer...

                  From what I remember, dinner at Flames was minimum $60 pp. As I previously mentioned would try again, but haven't as yet. Thought steak at Flames was better than Morton's, although sides could have been better.
