    So for my birthday I've decided to go out for dinner to a high end steakhouse with a my wife and a few friends. I've been looking at different places in the LA/OC area and was wondering if there were any you guys would recommend. So far I have Maestro's, Arroyo Chophouse and Alexender's.

    Pacific Dining Car in Santa Monica is some old school exclusive goodness.

    Ted's of Beverly Hills Steakhouse. The foil covered baked potato originated at Ted's.

    555 East in Long Beach is very good. It is an old school style steak house with amazing steaks.

    Only one I've been to on your initial list is Mastro's... but it was well worth the (high) price of admission.

    Mastro's has the ambience but for a truly great bone in filet you simply can't beat Ruth's Chris, IMO.
    Flemings is also pretty stellar.

    My favorite is Wolfgang's in Beverly Hills.

    It's not Wolfgang Puck's place. It's owned by a guy named Wolfgang Zweiner, who worked at Peter Luger's before starting his own group of steakhouses.

    The food is excellent and it's a bit less stuffy than Mastro's. I love the food at Mastro's, but the atmosphere can feel a bit pretentious.

    Try the bacon as an appetizer. It's like no other bacon I've ever eaten. It's sliced thick and almost tastes like a hot dog.

    i cant figure out why, myself included why people enjoy paying so much for steak when you can broil or grill one yourself just as good if not better for $15

    but when the bill comes we all seem so happy about getting it rammed up the tukus.

    I love this place in OC.

    Be sure to wear a tie you don't like so they can cut it off & hang it on the wall.
    Also the mushrooms are great.

    I have this mentality.
    Plus, my Chopin & Gorgonzola cheese stuffed martinis are nowhere near as expensive as they are ($22.00!) at a good steakhouse.

    I'm surprised no-one has mentioned Morton's; never been there myself, but quite a few folks I know have raved about their steaks.

    Wow, that brings back memories - haven't been there in years. IIRC their food is pretty good, but it's not a "high end" steakhouse (as the OP requested). I may just have to go there again one of these days... :)

    Yeah, "high end" is Morton's, Ruth's Chris, Mastros, & Flemings. I'm more of a mid-range guy, i figured the picnic table decor would make that clear.

    Foxfire Chophouse in Yorba Linda used to be a good place to grab a steak & chase OC "cougars", but it looks like it's closed.

    If you like ocean views Splashes in Laguna Beach @ the Surf & Sand is usually good. They've had some amazing & oddball chef's over the years. Not sure how it is now.
