Best Steak

Need recommendation for the best quality steak Downtown, (though willing to travel a bit). Last year was sent to Cheval Something or other and found it noisy, hot, overpriced with a soundtrack of loud 70's music that would not quit. Will not return. What do you folks suggest?

Any other restaurants downtown worthy of a visit? Liked Au Pied du Cochon, thought L'Express menu too limited. (Yes I know they are not downtown).

Thanks for all advice.

  1. If it's just great steak you're after, I don't think it gets much better than Moishes on St. Laurent.

    1. For the non-steak part of your question, I would definitely recommend Au Pied de Cochon (not downtown but not too far either), but Toque! would be my first downtown pick. This is fine dining at its best.

        re: other restos downtown, what type of cuisine? budget? atmosphere?

          1. I second bomobob - Moishes hands down for best steak.

              If Au Pied is too far, is Moishes really that much closer?
