Best Steak In Los Angeles....

I went to the Stinking Rose and I had the best steak ever. I have eaten at CUT, Morton's and Dan Tanas and no one compares to the filet mignon at Stinking Rose.

I ordered my steak medium-rare and it was crispy on the outside and pink and juicy on the inside. I could have cut my steak with a butter knife...literally...

Do yourself a favor and enjoy an amazing steak at a very reasonable price.

  1. Did you happen to get the bagna calda to go with? One of the must gets and goes on top of everything they make (just in case you didn't get enough of a "garlic" fix with the normal preparation).

      yes, the garlic clove spread was great! A must have for Stinking Rose.

    2. Interesting - I have been searching for great steak. I went there years ago and really didn't like the meal. I don't think I had steak but remember it being too themed and much too heavy on garlic - and I love garlic...

      1. I thought all this joint was is a kitchsy, vile tourist trap. What Mr Chow is to Chinese food, the Stinking Rose is to Italian food though at significantly cheaper prices.

          I thought I saw an earlier post I agreed with. That was too the effect that you are being too hard on Mr. Chow. Mr. Chow may be pretensious to some, but it can also be fun and the food, while very expensive, is not bad (although I have not been for a few years). I think the OP is perhaps joking about the steaks at Stinking Rose. The Stinking Rose is less than mediocare and as was said somewhere, on par with the now departed Sizzler.

          1. I agree with all the posters above me WRT to Stinking Rose. However, has anyone else BESIDES the OP gotten a steak there?

            It's POSSIBLE that the steak here is a diamond in the rough...

              It probably is rough, and if it is I'd dare say no fat ass has sat on that chunk of roughage long or hard enough to squeeze a diamond out of it.
