Are there any good steak houses on UWS?

    Porter House is the only true steakhouse near the UWS that is worthy of any mention.

      For a latin steak, I LOVE Pampa on Amsterdam. The garlic fries are fabulous and the steaks are amazing too.

        Do you mean the place that was on Amsterdam around 97/98? That's been gone for a while. It became La Rural (see nativeNYer's post above).

          Your best bet for steaks might be at a restaurant that serves steak rather than a steakhouse proper:

          Compass has sirloin and petite fillet mignon
          Ouest has a very good Black Angus strip steak.
          81 has Black Angus fillet mignon

          All of these places serve the steaks simply grilled.

            It's certainly not on par with Luger's et.al. but DH and I have enjoyed Roth's (93rd & Columbus). They have pretty traditional sides. They have a nice outdoor space and on the weekends they usually have a live jazz band. We've been more recently for brunch which was excellent.

              Although I have not yet tried it, La Rural on W97th and Amsterdam seems to get consistently great reviews . It is an Argentinean steakhouse .
