Best steakhouses in the world

In a post from August 2007 I both declared my passion for steak and gave my list for the best steaks. It is time to update this list with actual additions to the 10 out of 10 rank:

10 out of 10:

  • Saltlik, Banff, Alberta, Canada - The New York Peppercorn is the best steak in the world.
  • Karstadt, Muenster, NRW, Germany - Actually a shopping mall, you can have steak inside the supermarket area. Serves the best steak in Germany. Decent price, cooked to your liking.
  • Hideaway Steakhouse, Westminster/Denver, Colorado, USA - been there twice and their rib-eye (both the bone-in and the boneless) are a perfect 10. Consider the mushroom reduction as a sauce. I was also impressed with the price value!
  • Fire & Water @ Marriott, Victoria, BC, Canada - Very good steak, unfortunately the ambiance is a bit too "standardised hotel restaurant" for my taste.

9 out of 10:

  • Wolfgangs Steakhouse, New York, NY, USA - Great steak, good service. Ex-Peter Luger Personell.
  • Al Capone's Hideaway & Steakhouse, St.Charles, IL, USA - Authentic Atmosphere, good for groups, amazing T-Bone.
  • Bella Napoli, Stuttgart, Germany - Nice italian restaurant. The barolo sauce on the filet of beef is unbeatable.
  • Trattoria Salvatore, Münster, Germany - Consistently the best fine-dining italian in Münster. But also consistently the filet is prepared to perfection and with an amazing barolo sauce.
  • Alan Wong, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - not really a steak place, but rather fine dining. But when we were there they had a steak tasting menu that was excellent and - oh what an irony - we had the best German Riesling ever on Hawaii.
Unfortunately while adding to the list above (which is a good thing) I also have to tell you to stay away from a place Yelp`s users consider to be among "the best meatplaces in San Francisco": House of Prime Rib on Nob Hill is awful. It is neither great meat, nor great service or atmosphere. Never again!
