Great Anaheim-area steak spots?

I need your insight to plan a client dinner for attendees of Expo West, a trade show for the natural and organic products industry. The request is for steak, so I'd like it to be not just stellar food, but also a non-cheesy atmosphere. Any help is much appreciated!

      I'll second Morton's, as the new one opened up on Harbor just south of Disneyland it should be close for you and your clients. There is also a Ruth's Chris opening up near there, soon, so you may want to time that to see if it could work for you.

      Mr. Stox is also very close, and is a nice, upscale restaurant with an old school feel. Very elegant.

      My choice for your client dinner though, would be the Napa Rose inside the Disneyland Grand Californian hotel. They do steaks I believe, but also have other great menu choices.

    2. Definitely Mastro's Steakhouse in Costa Mesa.

      Here's my review and pics:

        Nice report. I wonder how this place stacks up against 555 East in Long Beach.
        My mouthful of porterhouse dissolves into, what I can only describe as meat foam by the 3rd chew.

        1. All of the above. Morton's for a solid chain.
          Mr. Stox for a lil old school (the outside is very deceiving).
          Napa Rose for something special.
          Mastro's is definitely trendy, but a bit of a drive to get there. Guess it would depend on what time/date so you aren't hitting traffic.

          If $$ is not an issue, I'd be all over Mastro's or Napa Rose.

          1. Don't know how steak specific Napa Rose is, but they always have a varied meat selection, and are quite good.

            Also concur w/ Mr. Stox recs.
