Best Restaurant for Steak in Toronto

As title states, I'm looking for a restaurant in Toronto that has EXCELLENT steak. Now I am aware of the KEG, Canon Creek, Ruby's, but was wondering if there were other places that would have @ par or better steaks than the ones listed above??

  1. Unless you like to get ripped off, avoid Harbour 60.

    1. Barberian's is a safe choice. Been around forever (as have many of the staff) so they know how to do it right.

      1. I'm not sure if you are looking for a pricey steakhouse or just another chain with average prices and food. All the places you mentioned are very average and IMHO not worth visiting unless your stuck in the burbs. I can't say I know the BEST of the BEST in town because I have not tried them all but I can tell you which steakhouses I have had a good experiences at.
        Jacobs and Co - probably my fave, Great food
        Ruth's Chris- very reliable, always a good piece of meat
        Morton's - Pricey but excellent
        The Drake Hotel- They serve up a good steak
        Barbarians - Cool atmosphere, some may disagree with me but I have never had a bad experience here

        I agree with Tex that Harbour 60 is not worth the $ as it is hit or miss, I had one good experience there and one bad and after paying that much for an average meal I won't return.

        1. I would avoid Ruth's Chris like the plague... That place just rubs me the wrong way, and I never leave there feeling like I got my moneys worth

          1. re: duckdown

            I’ve only been to Ruth’s Chris once, like 6 years ago, but I remember it being a fantastic experience.

            Also, only been to Harbour 60 once, 2 years ago, and although it has been bashed like crazy my experience there was fantastic. Again, only been the one time.

            Never been to Barbarians or the the others mentioned on this thread but would love to go.

          2. My vote would also go to Jacobs and Co.
