Description: The best steaks in the metropolitan area are cooked on Korkeavuorenkatu Street, just a few steps from Esplanade Park. The restaurant carrying the name of Stefan Richter – American Top Chef finalist – serves dishes with gorgeous presentation and exquisite flavours that bear comparison with any other world-class restaurant.True to its name, this steakhouse's menu focuses on steaks. You can opt for Finnish, Australian or New Zealand beef from the steak menu. When first-class meat is combined with carefully prepared side dishes and wines selected by connoisseurs, the end result is a harmonious restaurant for lovers of good food. The house specialty is the Kobe-style Wagyu tenderloin, the finest and highest-quality beef from special-bred and -fed cattle. Besides top steaks, Stefan's offers exquisite starters and desserts as well as grilled fish dishes.

We went there on saturday evening, it was quite crowded but still the service was good. Propably one of the best steaks that I`ve ever had. Little bit expensive.. but worth of going.

“Good Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Stefan´s at korkeavuorenkatu is kind of "classic" steakhouse. If you really want to enjoy good meat, you can always be sure with SS.

“Great place although quiet on a Monday night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Went to dinner with a Helsinki based supplier and was impressed. This restaurant was within walking distance from my hotel and easy to find. As it was a Monday night it was a little quiet but the service was excellent and the place has a very good feel to it. You could eat here for business dinner as well as for personal occasions and the bar area is well set up for a before dinner beverage.
A well rounded menu and an excellent wine list add to the positives so do yourself a favour and go

“Nice food, shame about the service.....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Having recently visited this restaurant, I was hoping for a nice meal in a nice atmosphere. Sadly that didn't happen - admittedly we didn't book and it was a Saturday night at 6:30pm, however on arrival and asking the waiter if there was a table for 2 available, he took us to what can only be described as the 'naughty table' (by the stairs and cloakroom, round the corner, not near any other dining guests' where we were told we had 2 hours to eat before the table was needed.

When ordering drinks, they didn't have the red wine that I requested and as we only had 2 hours, we decided to only order mains which took 40 minutes to arrive - the T bone steak was very well cooked and I couldn't fault it, however the cumin vegetables were very al dente. I asked for the bill and after waiting for 10 minutes (after all, we weren't exactly able to catch anyone's eye as we were hidden from view) I asked again, to have it slammed down on the table 2 minutes later.

I appreciate that we potentially should have booked, however would have preferred being told that there were no tables available, rather than be treated as '2nd class' for not booking.

If you book ahead, then try it - the steak was very well cooked, however if you are wandering around, looking for a restaurant to go to, then perhaps try somewhere else, unless you want to be relegated to a very crap table and subsequently, not enjoy your meal as much.

“THE best in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

This place is perfect to start a night or to have a romantic dinner for two. Such a stylish place to eat and enjoy evening. The steaks are delicious and big enough ever for a hungry man ;) The staff is great too. I always recommend this place to my friends who ask where to go to eat. Prices are affordable and very reasonable. Great variety of wines. Best in town I would say!
