The Top Steakhouse Restaurants in London

The OpenTable Team

It's no surprise that London has so many options when it comes to steak; the Big Smoke was where chophouses first originated hundreds of years ago. The tradition has developed since then, and now the finest cuts from around the world can be found across the city, from basement bars in Soho to upmarket bistros in Chelsea. But where will the savviest diners find the best steak in London? Welcome to the Tastemaker 20. We’ve collected data from thousands of restaurants to find the favourite locales for OpenTable's most expert diners. This list has a little of everything, from Japanese Wagyu beef to grass-fed Argentinian steak, cooked to perfection and served up in surroundings from Shoreditch casual to City of London formal. Peruse our list, book a table, and start deciding on sauces and sides.
