Mastro's, CUT, or STK? Looking for best steak in LA

I'm graduating next month and looking for somewhere special to celebrate over dinner with my family. I'd like to go to a steakhouse. The most important thing is the quality and taste of the food. I would also like somewhere with a good atmosphere. Price does not matter and I'll go anywhere in the general LA area. From what I've read, I'm leaning towards Mastro's or CUT, but I haven't heard much about STK. Any opinions on STK compared to the others? A lot of the threads for this topic are a couple years old, not sure if opinions have changed. I don't want to go to Morton's or Ruth's Chris, I've been to those many times. So - recommendations for the best steak in LA? Thank you in advance!

  1. 1) Stinkin' Rose
    2) Mastro's
    3) bistecca from Angelini or Chi Spacca

    STK is never in the conversation unless you wanna go celeb spotting.

    1. the first half of the thread is LOL, the second half is good info.

      1. re: ns1

        Lets not confuse the poor guy. Stinking Rose is a joke.

        I like Mastro's and Angelini and am trying Chi Spacca for the first time this week. Also, had a very good steak recently at Wolfgang's. Dont care for the vibe at CUT, too cold and sterile IMO.

    2. The Dabney Coleman at Dan Tana's is #1
      Cut, Mastro's are #1.5

      1. For the best steak -Dan Tana's. Has great atmosphere too. Lotsa character and characters.

        Chi Spacca is an interesting choice too.

        1. Mastro's and STK are seriously overrated. A randomly great streak is the T-Bone at Divino in Brentwood. Not on the menu but they almost always have it and it is divine. Having a brick oven or some other cooking apparatus that allows for insanely high temperatures to sear in the flavor and juices is an absolute must...
