“Nice restaurant -good meat quality”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

We recently visited the Red Heifer Steakhouse because it changed "hechsher and it now serves Rav Rubin meats. The restaurant is in a central location near Ben Yehuda and there is a paid parking lot next to the place. It is in an old Jerusalem House, looks like from the late 1800's and that was neat.
Our meal started out with garlic bread and fresh chummous. I thought the garlic bread was a bit too greasy for me and the chummous a bit too dry.
All our dining guests loved their steaks, said they were better than other steak houses in the city.
I had a burger and it came with one side. Much to my surprise they said they made homemade onion rings. Those are hard to come by anywhere. They were crispy and seasoned well. I loved them. The burger was a half pound and quite juicy.
The place is a bit pricey but you can download a ten percent off coupon on ELuna and that helps. They have no business lunch.
Happy Eating.!

“Best steaks in Jerusalem!!”
Reviewed December 12, 2010

Coming into this restaurant was like walking into paradise. Beautiful house setback off the main st. with large porch overlooking the garden. I had a delicious ribeye steak, the waitress said it was aged for 21 days. My friend had the burger, a whopping 250 grams with fried onions and crispy fries. We shared a hot chocolate souffle. Glad the concierge recommended this place. 5 stars!

“Worst Meal/Experience during 10-days in Israel”
Reviewed November 25, 2010

It was supposed to be a celebration. My good friend, Fr. Dan and his friend from their sabbatical program, were supposed to have a fabulous dinner at Red Heifer. It was HORRDENDOUS. We should have known there would be a problem with only one server and no guests....and no gin or olives. No olives in Israel? The server, Dina, was charming, no issues there. The food and kitchen service were a disaster. Fr. Dan's steak arrived raw. We sent it back and it came back raw again. Dina tried calling the owner to give us a credit for at least one of the three over priced meals. He refused saying the cooking of a steak was a personal preference. My steak was of an unknown cut as was the others. Kosher steak may be of different cuts, but this was horrible. I had a better cut of beef at Joy Restaurant in the German Quarter. I will be challenging the charges with American Express. TThe cook and the owner were arrogant and unhelpful. This place was totally unacceptable.

“Rather uninspiring”
Reviewed November 22, 2010

The restaurants bills itself as a steakhouse. At least on the evening of my visit, it was a place away from home for a lot of retirees of US origin. A lot of them. The ambiance was rather destroyed by not one, but almost all tables loudly discussing their kids' colleges and careers.
The food, however, was outstanding. Really good stuff. The Ribeye was a textbook example on how to grill a piece of meat.
Anyway, a quiet place to enjoy a good steak, it was not. If you like unintentionally overhearing conversations of the table next door, this is your place.
Bring earplugs.
