    For SoCal restaurants, I like Ruth Chris the best. If you want to grill, Hows in Pasadena has prime grade steaks.
    I agree. Morton's is hit or miss in my experience. We had fantastic steaks last Sat at Ruth's Chris -- bottle of cab (Duckhorn) was heavenly.

    LG's out here in Palm Springs used to be really good, haven't been there since LG passed away, so no idea if the standards are the same though.

    At a high end steak place you need to send it back -- if overcooked they have to cook a new one anyway. Also, be incredibly nice about it and almost apologetic...if you insult the staff or make rude comments you are just asking for trouble. I like my steak medium but I'm fine with mw and won't send that back. If rare or mr I ask for a touch more flame and ask them not to cook a new one. If well done I ask for another...my $02.

    I like Ruth's Chris. That being said, if you like NY strip, the spot to go is Dan Tana's on Santa Monica Blvd.

    i see what you're saying and whenever i do find it worthwhile to express a concern (wait time, missing item, etc.) at an eatery, i always do it in the nicest most apologetic way, but personally, there's no point in it for me when i've already made my mind up that the place didn't live up to my expectations and i won't be coming back. i think there's no excuse for a steakhouse that fancy/pricey to screw up a steak. steaks aren't that difficult to cook.

    Yep, I like the both the San Gabriel and La Mirada locations...although if pressed, I'd choose the San Gabriel location over the La Mirada one. I like the unlimited salads there too.

    One time in my entire life I sent food back....I was at Claim Jumpers in Torrance (now closed) and was served absolutely stone cold baby back ribs. Normally, I'd just try to get by, but this was impossible. So I sent it back, and sure enough it came back to the table hotter than the fires of Hell....making that inedible for almost 10 minutes! So I told the person in charge that I didn't think what they did was very funny, and she pretty much didn't care. No wonder they aren't open anymore.

    My wife and I go to Ruth's Chris in BH about twice a year. The Cowboy Ribeye is excellent and the sides are top notch. Not cheap mind you, but very good.

    Not a "steak restaurant" per se, but Palermo Deli in Granada Hills makes a ****ing fantastic New York Strip with Fried Egg on top.
