Best Steak dinner in SF?

A group of us are looking to have a dinner out and STEAK is the theme.

We were considering:

House of Prime Rib

Any other suggestions or comments about the ones above?

    1. I really like El Raigon -- it's high quality meat and not a corporate environment.

      1. this is my favorite in SF.

        ignore the online menu, my favorite on the menu is not even on it.
        (bone in ribeye with marrow)

        1. Alfred's is a really cool steak has a very old school kind of theme, and great, traditional food.

          1. I suggest Harris (1st choice), Acme, Alfred's or Bob's (in the Omni). Morton's is okay, but feels mass-produced (like the chain restaurant it is). House of Prime Rib feels like an "old English steak house" exhibit at Epcot Center at Disney. The food is okay, but it's hard for me to get past the show-like atmosphere. Ruth's Chris feels like a prom night restaurant. Boboquivari's offers good steak, but gets low marks for its atmosphere (in a motel parking lot). El Raigon is also okay and has a beautiful, quiet dining room, but I don't recall being wowed by their steaks. I haven't yet tried Lark Creek Steak, so I can't speak to that.
