Best Restaurants for Steak in Toronto

Our city is bursting with great steaks - from low-end to high-end, there’s something for everyone.

Michael's On Simcoe

1
100 Simcoe St, Toronto, ON M5H 3G2

Our very own Alan Vernon wrote: “Steaks are a specialty, all hand selected and aged in house. And if the 8 oz tenderloin ($34) is any indication, you won't be disappointed. Its wagyu-like richness doesn't overpower the meats natural grassy and mineral qualities. This is one slab of beef that merits being served solo, sans sides.

Mambo Lounge

2
120 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1N1

A Cuban restaurant on the Danforth might not be the first place you’d think of for a steak. But the Bistec a la plancha ($25) - grilled AAA NY striploin with fresh, not frozen veg, and a hearty jus - is not only one of the best in the city, it’s an insanely good deal. And the yucca fries that accompany it are so addictive, you’ll come for the yucca as much as the steak.

Tulip Restaurant

3
1610 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4L 1G2

Going to The Tulip is a unique and specific experience. It’s not fancy. Around since 1929, it’s the place you take Mom, Dad and the kids. The grandparents will love it too.

Jacobs & Co Steakhouse

4
12 Brant St, Toronto, ON M5V 2M1

While this might be the pricier of the bunch ($492 for a steak), it’s absolutely worth it (and not as expensive as others – two steaks are under $40, so some might consider it well priced).

Sitting on the dock of the bay, or a patio downtown, or in the cool comfort of an air conditioned restaurant, nothing says summertime like fish and chips. Here are the city’s top 5 spots:
We are so fortunate in Toronto that we don’t have to wait for TIFF to arrive to get a sneak peek of Hollywood elite, supermodels and their ilk. If you want to star-gaze and get up close to celebs, head to these top 5 eateries in the city for VIPs and superstars.
One of the best ways to spend a summer evening is to catch a show. Whether you’re going out to a big theatre production such as Newsies or Kinky Boots, or you’re heading off to hear a performance by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company or Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra & Chamber Choir, you’re going to want to eat beforehand.
