Best steakhouse...

I am sure this is a topic that has been coverred ad nauseum on here, but I need to make a rezzy for Thurs night for a party of 2. It doesn't need to be romantic, it's an important dinner I am having with my business partner.

When I read the reviews on here and menupages, they all seem to range from terrible to "the absolute best", the conflicting reports are confusing.

Should I just goto Smith & Wolls? Or try something like Palm Too or Old Homestead?

  1. You're right! This has been covered ad nauseum. The Chow team worked hard to get this new search tool working--here's something to get you started.

      1. Striphouse is my favorite! Best ribeye.

        1. For a nice steak dinner with business partner, I would do Del Frisco's

            If I were in midtown I would go to Sparks. The best sirloin, kind of an old school place, and they take reservations. I would go to Strip House if I wanted to be a little more downtown. Also, I have never been there, but I have heard Wolfgang's is great.

          2. Wolfgang's is very good. Skip Old Homestead-- steaks had no flavor, service not very nice.

              I would say the same think about wolfgangs. no flavor and poor service.

                S&W Grill would be my choice and get the cajun ribeye
