The Loft Steakhouse has been situated just off 13th Avenue since opening in 2009 and has become a firm favorite with locals in the neighborhood and also those in the wider Brooklyn area. The Loft offers a chic nook for you to enjoy an exquisite dining experience regardless of if you’re eating out with a group of friends or even for a romantic dinner with your other half.
If you’re a diner who’s very particular about the quality of service when eating at restaurants, then rest assured you’ll be pampered by The Loft waiters as they are known for pampering guests and have a talent for recommending dishes that will impress even the hardest to please customers.
Albeit, The Loft may not be your weekly go-to steakhouse due to the slightly higher prices, however, we guarantee this will become one of your favorite special occasion settings to celebrate with your friends and family.
All food served at The Loft is kosher and is under strict supervision from Rabbi Yechiel Babad-Tartikov.

1922 Coney Island Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11230
Another upscale dining venue to grab an excellent steak is the Bordeaux Steakhouse located on the 5-mile roadway Coney Island Avenue and may have been missed from your radar to its more conspicuous setting.
They are a premier kosher steakhouse and were established to provide their guests with a luxurious and personalized dining experience that will be remembered by their clientele.
All dishes at Bordeaux are designed by their innovative chef Zach Hess and each plate is individually crafted to perfection and is best paired with a glass of fine wine from their generous collection.
Whilst their steaks are the main and stand-out attraction at Bordeaux, they have some notable favorites amongst their starters and desserts list that we continue to reorder each time we pay a visit here.
Treat yourself to the truffle gnocchi starter (duck & chicken confit with assorted mushrooms, spinach, and truffle oil), and make sure to leave room for warm blueberry bread pudding that’s served with vanilla bean ice cream.
If you’re intending to visit on weekends, then we highly recommend making a reservation through their phone number to avoid disappointment if you turn up on the night.
593 Lorimer St, Brooklyn, NY 11211
DeStefano’s Steakhouse is a family-run business on Lorimer Street (just around the corner from their former location) that has earned itself quite the reputation for delicious food and courteous Italian-style hospitality.
DeStefano’s was established to pay tribute to the DeStefano family and other families within the neighborhood who helped create a strong sense of community and a ‘neighborhood home away from home’ which is replicated in their warm and hospitable venue.
The owner and staff are truly a credit to this place helping the place stick to its authentic roots whilst also continuing to produce flawless cuisine.
The menu features prime-aged steaks and a specially curated selection of wines to pair perfectly with your dish.
Be warned as the side portions are a lot bigger than you’d anticipate, so watch that you don’t order too much as you’ll find yourself having to unzip your jeans to make more room. Sides do come in 3 sizes, small, medium, and large which is ideal to cater to smaller or larger dining parties.
178 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11211
If you’ve already tried to search for a decent steakhouse in Brooklyn, we do not doubt that Peter Luger Steakhouse will have been one of the top recommendations from both visiting tourists and New Yorkers themselves.
Peter Luger has earned itself the reputation of being one of the best steakhouses in New York and has done so since its opening nearly 40 years ago. It is a Michelin star restaurant which is reflected in their prices (no shaming just being honest) so it would be a venue for special occasions rather than your regular eatery unless you’re financially lucky enough to indulge regularly.
All meat served at their locations is USDA beef and is dry-aged on-site in controlled temperatures to ensure the meat is of the best quality when it comes to serving.
If you do intend to visit soon, please remember that Peter Luger steakhouses do not accept credit cards and their only forms of accepted payment are cash, debit cards, US checks, or the Peter Luger card, so don’t be caught out.

Hunter’s is considered to offer one of the best steaks in Bay Ridge and we find it hard to disagree with that claim as it’s been wooing those in the neighborhood and visitors to the venue for 30 years now. You’ll always receive a warm and inviting welcome here at Hunter’s and the team pride themselves on being attentive but not too over the top within their customers.
If you’re looking for a less upscale dining experience that you can also enjoy during the day, then Hunter’s will be a great option as the interior offers a more casual ambiance.
All of Hunter’s high-quality steaks are dry-aged to perfection on-site but all come at extremely reasonable prices. There is also an abundance of lighter menu options for those who’re not looking to tuck into a porterhouse and
Hunter’s even provides seasonal menus with some eclectic items to which create a buzz with regulars looking to switch up their order from the norm. Most notably, their Oktoberfest menu that features some irresistible authentic German dishes for a set price is hugely popular with visitors.
119 Nassau Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222
Back in 2010, Amber became Greenpoint’s first steakhouse, much to the neighborhood’s delight and they’ve never looked back since. The elegant venue offers indoor and outdoor dining and boasts a gourmet menu filled with steak, fresh seafood, and fine wines.
If you or anyone in your dining party aren’t big steak fans, then there are plenty of seafood options to choose from on top of some vegetarian options.
For the quality of food that you get at Amber, the prices cannot be faulted especially when you observe the attentive and efficient service from the staff.
As with most of New York, there’s no parking at the venue and it can be difficult to find a spot nearby, so if you do live nearby then we recommend walking or taking the subway to the station.
Their busiest times are evenings on the weekends and being in such a central spot in Greenpoint that can get busy pretty quickly, so try to make a reservation in advance through their contact number or doing so on Open Table.
355 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211
St. Anselm is one of the best-hidden gems in Williamsburg and its unassuming exterior will have you unsuspecting of what delights are served up in the brick-walled interior.
The team at St. Anselm is a real credit to the place and we’ve never received anything but incredibly warm and down-to-earth hospitality upon our visits, even when we’ve been slightly difficult with some of the menu choices.
The Butcher’s steak that’s cooked in garlic butter is only $28… yes you heard us correctly and it’s probably one of the best deals you’ll find in town.
Their menu is slightly more limited than what you’d find in normal steakhouses, but what they lack in quantity they compensate for in quality as everything is cooked to whatever your perfection may be.
One of the best things about this venue is that you can sit at the bar and eat or drink whilst you watch the chef’s cook right in front of you, or if you’d rather a more communal setting you can choose to sit at one of their indoor or outdoor tables.
Please note that St. Anselm does not take reservations for parties larger than 8 people and they recommend people reserve a table in advance as the venue is quite small.
8822 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11209
Chadwick’s is an old-school steakhouse that boasts high ceilings, burgundy banquettes, and an open fireplace that continually offers to be a warm and inviting venue for any occasion.
If there’s one recommendation we can give you for your next visit at Chadwick’s is to ensure you order the bacon jam sauce to accompany your main dish (preferably steak) as it tastes like nothing we’ve ever tried before.
Steak’s not the only thing that chefs at Chadwick’s nail as they also provide some incredible alternatives such as roasted long island duck, succulent pork chops as well as some rich seafood options to suit any palette.

Salt + Charcoal is a Japanese grill in Williamsburg that has earned itself the title of being a one-of-a-kind restaurant due to the incorporation of hand-selected meats and ingredients with traditional Japanese cooking techniques.
The venue is one of the very few places we’ve come across in the area that serves their grilled food up to as late as 11 pm, allowing diners to continue their dining experience through to midnight if they wish.
If you don’t have an appetite for meat, then maybe their full bar featuring original crafted cocktails served up by their award-winning mixologist will be more to your fancy.
Don’t try to play it safe with your order at Salt + Charcoal by ordering what you know and try to branch out to one of their more unique menu options which could have you completely dazzled.
