There’s few things better than a good steak but when the weather doesn’t cooperate, grilling your own won’t suffice. And while you fan usually find “steak” on just about any restaurant’s menu, what you want and what you get may be two different things. Fortunately, we have found five of the best places to get your beef from the people who should know. Just about everyone recommends Ruths Chris Steakhouses (and the greater Seattle area has two of them) but if you want something with more of a Pacific Northwest feel, may we suggest….
Zagat guides has ranked John Howie Steak at the top of the list of “Best Steakhouses in Seattle” which calls the restaurant Bellevue’s “Shrine to Beef” and where the “Ritzy settings and sublime service will make you feel like a million bucks with pricey tabs to match” but they also recommend the Happy Hour deals or the lunch menu for a real steak steal.
USA Today’s “10 Best” gives the contemporary steakhouse, Bateau, a glowing review praising Chef Renee Erickson and her collaborators who own their own local farm so that they actually raise their own beef “in a manner consistent with their values and standards.” Talk about your farm-to-table meal. The animals are grass-fed and the beef is dry-aged in-house.
Trip Advisor says, “The moment you step inside Metropolitan Grill, you will know you have entered a classic steakhouse. Every cut is hand selected and custom dry-aged with our proprietary seasonings; ensuring the most tender and flavorful steak.” Out of 1,307 reviews – 69% of them rated Eric Hellner’s restaurant as “Excellent.” It also received high marks from service, value, food and atmosphere
The Butcher’s Table says of their restaurant: “From Mishima Reserve Wagyu beef to our smoked meats and other favorites off the menu, our Butcher Shop provides for the carnivorous epicure in us all.” Gayot seems to agree giving the steakhouse the top spot in their 2017 Top 10 Steakhouses in Seattle Area list. “Whether seated in a big leather chair at the bar, at the giant community table or in one of the dark booths in the downstairs dining area, this steakhouse believes that bigger is better: bigger seats, bigger fries (they’re basically giant beef-fat French fries), bigger menus, bigger light fixtures, and bigger meats (the bone-in smoked short rib is a monster),” says the guide.
El Gaucho Steakhouse 450 108th Ave. N.E., Bellevue, WA 98004 – 425-455-2715 – www.elgaucho.com
Seattle A List at Cityvoter.com claims that El Gaucho serves us the “Best steaks in town” and states that the “tableside preparations of Caesar salad, Chateaubriand and Bananas Foster set the stage for an extraordinary dining event that will make you feel like a star.” This make sense since the owners of El Gaucho say that “the smallest of details are considered the most basic ingredients of your visit.”

"One of their team members stopped by my house on Lake Sammamish just two days before my property was to be sold at auction. I told them that I was under water and couldn’t sell. He insisted that I speak with Ky DeWald and Adam Mickelson to see if there was anything that could be done. I finally agreed. They were able to not only stop my auction and get me another 90 days in my house but also put over $125,000.00 in my pocket and sold my house for $1,550,000.00!!! I couldn’t be happier!!! Thanks guys for all the help!"
