Teppan Village up in Whistler has some of the best steak and seafood you'll ever have. But the best in Vancouver is hands down Gotham, the best combo is the Porterhouse with a side of Gotham Hash Browns and the belgian chocolate bourbon cake for dessert. the taste is coming back to me...

Another to that list is Saltlik. I thought they were alright. About the same level as the Keg to me. But it has been a while since I've been there.

The Keg is usually bad for me, I think I only had 1 or 2 good steaks there. The rest are decent at best, and I have had to send steaks back more than a few times.

You might ask why I keep going back, but as you probably know, The Keg is on most peoples' short list of places to go for a steak, so you end up going there quite a bit.

Want to hear something crazy? Try Boston for a good steak. Yup, the HK style cafe has great steaks - definitely better than the Keg. And the price is good too.

If you want a really good steak, Gotham is a sure bet.

Hy's is the way to go.....what makes them different is...the decor is completely old school and their cheese toast is to die for. I would go to Hy's just for their cheese toast and wedge salad.

When you go to Hy's you expect to see Don Draper and Roger Sterling from Mad Men having a few cocktails.

btw, Hy's is the first restaurant for the Eisenstat (spelling?) family. Owners of The Keg.

Morton all the way, but on regular days Keg's prime rib is good enough.

I went to CHOP, it was really expensive for what you pay for in RICHMOND. I mean it's not bad, but I wouldn't wnat to go there cause it's at a location where you just eat and you can't bump around after, compared to other downtown location.

Yes, the steak bites on their appetizers (are meat ends) they are ok.. i'm sure I wrote a review somewhere before on CHop.


Caver's steak house at Executive Airport Hotel in richmond, New Westminster and Gilbert is suppose to be really good but I saw some reviews and they bashed them like crazy so i'm not sure if i want to take my clietns there.

My fav steak is at Morton's. 2nd would be Gotham's. I really gotta give Hy's a go though. The Keg is pretty meh compared to Morton's/Gothams.

One-time experience @ Morton's sucked. Tried their filet mignon and it was bland as hell.

Been to Gothams several times. Tried their taster entree - it was great. I always enjoy my time there. It's smaller than Mortons and therefore service imo was better. Ambiance @ Gothams much better than @ Mortons.

The Keg has been good. When you order medium rare, you get medium rare. Ordered rare last time and hell it was rare. Service sort of slipped a bit the last time I was there and food didn't disappoint.

Do NOT go to CHOP for steak. They aren't bad, but for the price, you can get MUCH better.

Ciopinnos has one of the best steaks I've had.

If you are cooking steak at home.. remember to dry age your beef!

It is always handy to have a second up to date fridge at hand!

I haven't read it, but it could be that they're just not used to HK style service

you can buy dry-aged, organic, Canada Prime or AAA grade steaks at Hopcotts out in Pitt Meadows and the pricing is basically the same as superstore (all their meats are dry-aged for at least 28days, regardless of grade)

they get their beef from their cow farm next door

Boston in Richmond was not bad, decently priced - HK style.

Saltlik is on par with Keg pricing and decent steaks as well. Kegs are hit N miss depending on type of steak, their prime rib is usually consistent. Hy's is great as is Morton's, have yet to try Gothams to compare. Cactus Club surprisingly has decent steaks too, Earls = hit N miss again.
