looking for a steakhouse in york region
Looking for a moderately priced steakhouse in york region (or scarborough).
Birthday's in about 2 months so I gotta choose!
Not sure of too many. When I did live in York Region I always made the trip to Toronto when it came to steak. Although I can say that I had a pretty good steak at Terra (Richmond Hill) Although, if I recall correctly the price was perhaps a little more than 'moderate'. The Keg's always good for for a well priced steak and B-day get together. Le Biftheque and Firefly on Woodbine in Markham - I've only 'heard' good comments, haven't been to either my self.
What about the Octagon? It's a bit more than moderately priced. But it's your birthday so why not?
I've been to the Octagon a number of times (not in the last two years, mind you) and never been disappointed.
And expensive? Compared to what? Is it more expensive than a Keg? Absolutely. But let's compare some high end Toronto area prices for a 16-oz ribeye: Octagon - $42; House of Chan - $50; Ruth's Chris - $47 but the baked potato is an extra $9; Harbour60 - $52. Plus, at the Octagon, you get the impressive appetizer platter, choice of potato, and garlic bread included with your dinner.
Stay away from some of the more ridiculous appetizers ($35 for a shrimp cocktail?! $29 for a Ceasar for two?!), the vastly overpriced seafood, and you'll get an excellent steak served in elegant surroundings for (depending on booze) less than $200 for a couple.
