Description: Prepare yourself for a dining experience beyond the ordinary! The peculiar host couple Griffins, with a faiblesse for both the good in life and for the unexplainable, has given room for the Griffins' Steakhouse Extraordinaire, a restaurant in the Waterfront building in central Stockholm. A generous steakhouse has been created in an imaginative, magical and vibrant restaurant with real 1920's salon feel. With a menu composed by Swedish masterchefs Christian Hellberg and Karl Ljung, which is offering everything from seafood plateaus and 350 grams of steaks to variations of classic Swedish and European dishes such as Shrimp cocktail, Banana split and lamb hotdog. Griffin's steakhouse also serve the entire menu in the bar which is said to be Stockholm's longest. There you can also enjoy well composed cocktails that are inspired of the classic American cocktail tradition.

“Good food, slow service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

This place is very popular so I recommend that you reserve a table at least a week in advance if dining on a saturday.

We were friendly showed to our table and recieved menues. After that the service went downhill. No explanation of the menu, no info on today cuts and ordering food and drinks took forever.

The food was however very good. My boyfriend loved his spring chicken and my flank steak was tender despite it being a rather cheap and tough cut. Dishes served with a really nice salad with a variety of tomatoes, the best fries I've had in a while and a good sauce bernaise (it had split a little, but no big deal.) Chef was a little heavy on the salt though, especially on the salad.

Nice and relaxed atmosphere despite a full restaurant. Decor really dark and quirky. Loved it!

Will return next time we visit the wonderful city of Stockholm.

“Expensive but food was delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

If you want a steak in Stockholm, this is the place. The local tenderloin was delicious - perfectly cooked. Bar staff was a bit snooty, but the waitstaff were so wonderfully nice that they more than made up for it. This is not the place for traditional swedish fare, but it is the place for an expensive but perfectly cooked steak.

“Excellent meat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014 via mobile

This is a place you need to visit when in need for good meat.
I've been there three times and I just regret that all of those times I didn't fast the day before in order to finish their delicious meat and still have place for dessert!!!

The service is always very polite and helpful, this added to the quality of the food makes this place one of my favorite grill places in Stockholm

“Sloppy cocktails”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

I think the place have passed its glory days, never the less still trendy for many, though was utterly shocked by the bar man in pinks behavior, apart that cocktails tasted wrong

“Good but expensive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

We had a lovely meal but it was expensive. Having said that this was the only dinner we ate out in Stockholm so I suspect it is no more expensive than any other place. We had the Griffin's burger and the ribeye and they were both very good and the portions were generous. A beer and a cocktail were over £20 but again I think that's par for the course in Stockholm I think!
