Get ready to sink your teeth into the prime cuts you’ll find at our picks for the 5 best steakhouses in Los Angeles!

1 Cut

Wolfgang Puck's haute meat-ery is a prime place that can't be missed. This sleek spot, located at the tony Beverly Wilshire which is beloved by celebrities and power players alike, was designed by Getty Center architect Richard Meier to be completely modern. The two-level eatery features an exhibition-style kitchen, art by John Baldessari and an innovative menu. You'll find fan favorites in addition to pricier (and rarer) pieces of meat like Kobe beef sashimi here in Puck's typical non-traditional food styling. Don't miss the Kobe beef short ribs with Indian spices.
9500 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills (310) 276-8500

2 Mastro's Steakhouse

Mastro's Steakhouse is an L.A. staple thanks to its superior steaks, beautiful interior, superb service and supreme elegance. You'll enjoy the succulent steaks like a New York strip and porterhouse as well as rich dishes like lobster mashed potatoes whether you're sitting in the dining room, bar area or in the more exclusive third-floor Penthouse, which features a rooftop terrace, the Canon Room with a wall of wine bottles and nightly DJs. If you're in the mood for something different (a.k.a. an ocean view), head to Malibu; the latest outpost of Mastro's opened its doors on the PCH last summer.
246 N Canon Dr, Beverly Hills (310) 888-8782

3 The Royce

The Royce-Wood-Fired Steakhouse is a gorgeous place to enjoy an amazing selection of USDA prime cuts, Australian wagyu and authentic Japanese Kobe beef, expertly prepared over a wood-fired grill with white oak and seasonal wood to sear in the maximum flavor and juiciness of each cut. Complement your meal with sides such as a twice-baked potato, rich and sinful macaroni and cheese, and veggie dishes such as a wild mushroom fricassee or truffled spinach. In addition to the plethora of cuts and sensational sides you'll find here, the eatery, located at the Langham Huntington Pasadena, also carries extremely rare and hard-to-find bottles of wine.

4 Bourbon Steak

There is—quite literally—new game in town now that Michael Mina has opened his award-winning steakhouse Bourbon Steak at Rick Caruso's Americana at Brand. Expect to indulge in modern American fare with a focus on seasonal ingredients. Selections of all natural, organic, grass-fed and hormone-free cuts of black Angus, as well as Japanese and American wagyu beef, are wood-grilled over live fire. Reimagining the classic American steakhouse, Bourbon Steak places an emphasis on playful menu offerings such as lobster corn dogs, truffle donuts, and a house-made root beer float. Ahi tuna tartare and Mina’s famous lobster pot pie are prepared tableside with an eye-catching presentation. Seafood platters will also be offered, allowing guests to choose from a selection of fresh shellfish including west coast oysters, Maine lobster, Dungeness crab and caviar served with warm blini. For dessert, guests have the opportunity to choose selections from the treat trolley, offering an array of dazzling cakes, cookies and confections, right from their seat. Guests can also expect the chef's signature items, like the Ribeye, and the trio of feted duck fat fries.

5 Pistola

Imagine being one of the super wealthy in "Mad Men" era L.A. (the 1950's) and wanting nothing more than a sweet slab of steak and a high-end bottle of wine, and you've got Pistola: a new restaurant courtesy of Vic Casanova and Seth Glassman that's modeled after a 1950's NY steakhouse with Italian influences. In this sleek, masculine space, you'll enjoy cuts like beef tenderloin, NY strip, dry-aged Delmonico, rib-eye, dry-aged tomahawk, and Fiorentina porterhouse as well as an array of pasta from linguine bucatini all’amatriciana to squid ink agnolotti to chocolate campanelle that would have even made Don Draper himself fat and happy.
