    Wilshire Restaurant is allegedly noted for its tartare, but I found it out of balance with an overpowering anchovy flavor. However, the quality of the ingredients was excellent.

      I liked the steak tartare at boa in SM.

        I found their tartare lacking in flavor. I expected more from a steak house but the meat itself didn't really taste like much.

          I concur-The Grill in BH has excellent Steak Tartare.

          The best tartare in town might be getting kitfo at an Ethiopian joint.

            Strongly second this. The kitfo at Meals By Genet is spectacular.

            I am also partial to the steak tartare at Fraiche.

              I third the Kitfo at Meals by Genet. It's spicy and delicious, and an enormous serving. When it first came out it I thought it was tuna tartar, it had that beautiful bright, fresh, red lustre.

              The Grill - traditional style, that doesn't need a new-age redo. Served cold and perfect.

              i haven't been to cut yet, but my guess is that if they have it on the menu it would be some of the best around.

                Mistral in Sherman Oaks on Ventura Blvd. Reminds me of the old Rangoon Racquet Club Days. Served appetizer size with pomme frite or dinner size. Excellent.
