The 12 Best Steakhouses in Los Angeles
The strip might be NY, but the destination is LA.
Obviously, many of the great things about steakhouses are moot in this takeout-only era: there’s no dark booths, no super-attentive servers, and no cheesy dude sprinkling salt for Instagram at the table. But one thing’s unchanged: a steakhouse meal can still be an amazing treat-yo-self dinner or celebratory event, even if all you’re celebrating is another night getting takeout rather than cooking for yourself. With that in mind, here are the best steakhouses doing takeout and delivery in LA:
In the before-times, Boa on Sunset was one of the most dependable celeb-watching locations in the city. Thankfully, their steaks, which include a 21-day dry-aged bone-in ribeye and a Kansas City filet, are good enough to order even if they don’t come with a side of Kardashian.

Suzanne Tracht’s chophouse closed its doors from Christmas through January 5, 2021, in response to the latest outdoor dining restrictions, but before that, this standby spot was doing takeout and delivery from Wednesday through Sunday, with chops including a prime ribeye and a char sui-style pork chop, as well as their signature pot roast.
Order on Toast
The Mozza family’s Italian steakhouse has porcini-rubbed short ribs and a dry-aged 16 oz NY number on their to-go menu, as well as a Saturday-only dry-aged burger and fry special. Don’t sleep on the grilled broccoli side, and obviously the mashed potatoes.

The Arthur J
David Lefevre’s high-end South Bay spot does delicious wood-grilled beef, with a to-go menu that includes massive cuts like a 40 oz dry-aged double-cut porterhouse, premium offerings like 4 oz of true Japanese Wagyu, and even a steak sampler if you’re having a hard time making up your mind, as well as seafood items like shrimp spaghetti arrabiata and miso-glazed Chilean sea bass.

Taylor's Prime Steak House
The classic Koreatown location of this old school-style steakhouse institution is temporarily closed, but the La Canada location is still in effect Wednesday through Sunday, serving up almost their entire menu (apologies if you were psyched for beef stroganoff or corned beef, but you can still get a three-course prime rib dinner or their famous London broil).

This Culver City landmark was recently given both an interior facelift and a new menu thanks to Hans Rockenwagner and Josiah Citrin. In the pandemic, they’re doing a weekend-only steakhouse-style prix-fixe dinner with a shrimp cocktail, garlic bread, salad, surf and turf, sides, and a dessert for $68, as well as a la carte items like crab cakes, lobster thermidor, and an 18 oz ribeye.

Carlitos Gardel Restaurant
This Argentinian steakhouse on Melrose has always been a sleeper, with a killer wine list and amazing grass-fed steaks. The menu is full of exciting preparations, including a 14 oz ribeye chimichurri, a sirloin milanesa, and a massive platter for two with skirt steak, short ribs, chorizo, blood sausage, and shortbreads.

Westwood’s premiere schmancy spot for steaks is doing both pickup and delivery, with a $129 “Surfs, turfs, and vine” special that brings two steaks, two seafood dishes, and a bottle of wine directly to your door. If you’d rather order a la carte, they’ve got a ton of chops as well as a short rib quesadilla and buttermilk fried chicken thighs.

Lawry's The Prime Rib
The longtime special-events/birthday dinner/spinning salad spot just launched a cook-at-home box with their signature prime rib and sides and instructions on prep, shippable anywhere in the country. If you’d rather have them make it for you, the La Cienega location is also doing pickup and delivery; order Monday through Thursday and get 20% off a menu that includes huge cuts of that prime rib as well as crispy roasted chicken and classic sides including mac and cheese and creamed spinach.

Adam Perry Lang pivoted his namesake steakhouse to a more-casual BBQ menu during the pandemic, but the cuts he treats with an intense amount of love are still on the menu, including a 165-day dry aged ribeye and a wet-aged NY strip, which you can order alongside the BBQ brisket that made him famous in the first place.
