Lotta great steak restaurants in Toronto … in my view there are two notables: Harbor Sixty http://www.harboursixty.com/ – This place is absolutely delicious.Their rib eye is next level and the shrimp are quite possibly the largest shrimp I’ve ever seen in my entire life.At the same time it can be rather inconsistent.
The vibe in there can only be described as stuffy, and I haven’t found the service to be as incredible as it should be (in fact it can be rather obnoxious at time).Unless you live very close yo downtown Toronto it can also be rather inconvenient in terms of location, parking, etc.Despite all of these shortcomings, when this place is on, there are far fewer dining experiences in Toronto, that Rib Eye can be heavenly at times.
Mortons http://www.mortons.com/toronto/ — When eating at a steak joint there is something to be said about consistency.Mortons is consistently very very good.Conveniently located in Yorkville, a dining experience at Mortons can be both briefly delicious and luxuriously bountiful.
The staff is friendly and accommodating.The bone in filet (off-menu) is probably the most succulent filet in the city.
Of course the guy with the heart condition is answering this one.
My choices and in no particular order: Barbarians http://www.barberians.com/Harbour Sixty http://www.harboursixty.com/Seniors http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/10/135241/restaurant/Midtown/Seniors-Steak-House-and-Restaurant-TorontoJacob & Co http://www.jacobssteakhouse.com/Hy’s Toronto http://www.hyssteakhouse.com/hys-toronto.htmlTom Jones http://www.tomjonessteakhouse.com/There are lots of other places.
For many years the best kept secret place for steaks is:House of Chan: http://www.houseofchan.ca/ at Eglinton and Bathurst Yes it is a Chinese restaurent but with the best Lobster and Rib Eye Steaks I have ever had.
I hear it is going to be turned into a LRT station so hurry!
Jacob’s and Co. is the best steakhouse in Toronto right now.It’s expensive, of course, but modern – which most of the other places simply aren’t.The steak is great – as it will be at a lot of these places – but the sides are better, the room is more up-to-date.
Trattoria Giancarlo’s http://jamiesarner.com/toronto-restaurant-reviews/trattoria-giancarlos/ – This is an Italian restaurant located in the heart of Little Italy.I am known for being picky when it comes to good restaurants, but this place is truly Heaven on Earth.
Also excellent is The Tulip on Queen Street East The Original Steakhouse — albeit very ‘no frills’ in atmosphere/ambiance (but correspondingly good prices) …
In order to complete the list of great recommendations, Ruth Chris in Toronto has yet to disappoint.
The only other high end place David is missing would be Morton’s http://www.mortons.com/toronto/ One place that does a surprisingly good steak frites is Starfish http://www.starfishoysterbed.com/ It’s my favorite restaurant, but my wife isn’t a fan of seafood so she defaults to the steak when we go.
If you’re in Etobicoke (west end), I highly recommend the Black Angus (on Bloor east of Islington).
I’ve taken clients to numerous steak houses across Toronto and the most favourable comments were always about the Black Angus.
The best steak I’ve had was at Octagon on 7529 Yonge Street Thornhill, ON L3T 2B4(905) 889-8989http://octagonrestaurant.com/home.html
