Created for comfort, Craftsteak provides a memorable fine dining experience. A feature of the restaurant is the open fire cooking on the custom made charcoal fired grill which creates wonderful hints of smoke flavor to the sizzling grills. Classic starters, the freshest cuts of steaks from Australia, USA and Canada as well as poultry, seafood and vegetables, all presented with a selection of individual sauces, are there to enjoy in an atmosphere created for comfort. Famous for its great selection of world wines, many available by the glass.

OK, but nothing special

Went here with a couple of colleagues after work. Both the steaks and the service were average; not bad, but nothing to write home about. It was fairly busy, but the service was fairly slow and our steaks took ages to come out.

My cousin's describe your Resto as the Best Steak Resto in HK. Yes, 100% you have the best Steak in HK but unfortunately your lady manager was so rude.

We stumbled upon craftsteak after some Christmas activities, and what a lovely surprise we got! The food was delicious : the steaks were very good, and the choice of sides, sauce etc thoughfully varied (love that you can get the cafe de paris butter, instead of the usual 'mushroom sauce' options). We also split a very yummy dessert (ice-cream sunday... More

We ended up at Craft Steak a little unexpectedly but a couple outside waiting for a table raved about it so we decided to stay. The steaks and accompaniments were excellent - really enjoyed them and would definitely recommend it for a steak lover. The only downside... and this is not their fault, in fact excellent for them... was that... More

My friend was so excited of bringing me at this steak house restaurant for the reason that their steak was really yummy and kinda affordable every Monday. And it was true. The only problem was the service. Some staff don't seem very respectful or care much on the needs of their customer. Except for the Chinese lady who seemed very... More

Steak not cooked to liking, asked for medium rare, came out blue, we sent it back and it came back untouched. All dishes were luke-warm.French fries were Ok. Sauces did not taste good at all.

When i walked in i felt something had changed - it seemed like the management or something was vastly different. When the food arrived it was the same thing - not very good steaks and lots of mumblings from our group about average food. Prices haven't reduced though!

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
