Good Steak in Edmonton

hhsoul35 Oct 27, 2009 04:57 PM

my friend moved to edmonton a while back and ever since has been complaining that he can't find a decent steak joint! So, Edmontonians...any suggestions? Where do you guys go for all the acclaimed AAA Alberta Beef?! (is it a locally kept secret?)

      I am sympathetic to this complaint. I agree that a rib steak at home on a hot grill is best. But here is where I would go:
      - Lousiana Purchase and have the tourenados Ya Ya
      - Coliseum Steak and Pizza for any of the steak, but not the atmosphere or tin-foil wrapped potato
      - the Keg for the filet with blue cheese and mushroom side
      - Von's on Thursday for New York special -- very well priced at $23
      - Hardware Grill for $50 sterling New York with blue cheese -- crazy good but it should be at that price

          home...followed in a distant second at Culina (the south side) and then maybe Bistecca. Bistro Praha if they ever re open would also be in the running.

            Although I have not been for over a year the steaks at Sage at that time were top in my books. I have also enjoyed Von's for a less expensive option. I also agree with Bistecca.

              +1 for Sage. Lovely steaks, delicious sides.
              Others may not agree, but MrCris thinks the Keg does a good job - he likes their baseball sirloin. Also, the Sawmill for some old '80s steakhouse ambience.
              But also, must agree, best steaks are done at home on the BBQ.

                +1 more for Sage. It was a year ago but was very, very good steak.

                  Eaten steak at Sage twice...once awesome, once awful (sent back, grossly overcooked, bland)...jury is still out on them for steak at this point.

                I really enjoyed my steak at Vons and the renovated dining room.
