Seattle Steakhouses: Sophisticated, Chic & Delicious, Too

Trying to find the best steakhouses in Seattle? Never fear; 10Best has you covered. Our editors and locals have scoured the city and surrounding suburbs for the top places to wine and dine. We showcase popular restaurants like RN74 and Brooklyn Seafood, Steak, & Oyster House, and we highlight eateries with great user reviews, too. Thanks to the city's propensity for supporting local farmers, butchers and other business, diners will find venues that showcase fine food from right here in the Pacific Northwest. An emphasis on local produce means that steaks come accompanied by enticing and healthy side dishes, and even vegetarians find appealing options at most of these meat meccas.

We also help you identify neighborhoods where steakhouses are the most prominent–the bustling downtown zone near a multitude of hotels and Pike Place, for example–so that you not only get terrific dining recommendations, but you also have abundant choices in convenient locales. After all, if you're going to eat, you may as well take advantage of Seattle's best. So put on your finest duds (which in Seattle, very rarely means too formal), and get ready to enjoy a delicious, delightful night on the town.
