Great Steak-- CT Shoreline-- Old Saybrook to New Haven?

Hi Hounds-
Not a steak eater myself, but my SO is and I'd like to take him out for a great one. Any recs? Price unimportant, good atmosphere a must. Does not have to be a "traditional steak house", but that would be nice. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks all. We have been to Tenderloin before-- somehow I had forgotten it. Had a slightly off meal there once-- but we are giving it another chance. I'll report back!

      I second the recommendation for Tenderloin's in Branford. Celebrated Valentine's Day there last year with my DH - it was WONDERFUL!
