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.

Booked a table on a Tuesday at 20:00 by net with short notice - which was easy and frictionless. Booked that via restaurant a website. Very fast and uncomplicated.

The restaurant had comfortable seats and the interior was cosy.

Went for a 3 dish menus with recommended wine at 89.- EUR plus 45EUR

- Tartar
- Wagyu steak
- Creme brulet

Not being a big Tatar fan, the first dish was excellent - but the Wagyu superceeded alll.
Super soft meat melting in mouth. Fantastic medium rare. O e of the best 3 I have had which is one in New York one in South Africa and this one.

Total price was ca 330.- eur for 2 but considering having an extra beer before and a extra desert wine after the price I value is absolutely great.

Great time there.

The prices at Stefan's are a nodge above that of say, Manhattan. The steak is average, service so-so, but the place oozes class and ambience.

Had the Entrecôte with bearnaise sauce, steak fries and creamed spinach.

Staff makes us feel like we are a burden and should be lucky to be able to eat there. We asked for beers while waiting, but they told us they were understaffed and could not serve us 4 drinks. Eat somewhere else..

We went to this place because our friend Stefan is a chef but not in this place.His name is Stefan Andreasson and he is living in Bergen Norway selling insurance. He could have been a Michelin chef. The food is brilliant both the tenderloin (i loved it with stefan butter and koniak sauce) and the reindeer was perfect. We had the best service we have ever had. We promised Valintine our waitress that we would not tell that she was great , but we forgot that we should not tell.

We came here for a menu dinner on a weekday. The restaurant looks stylish and is atmospheric and as such, is a great option for a dinner for two.

The service was attentive and our starters came really fast. The starters were also really good (jerusalem artichoke soup). So, it was a bit sad to that the mains and deserts weren't that good. The grilled pork chops portions would have required sauce or something as the pork was a bit dry. The portion includes a herb butter but mine was totally in a liquid form when we got the portions. I didn't pour it that much on the pork but in that form it just didn't stay long enough on the pork leaving the pork a bit tastless but getting all the veggies to taste really buttery. The desert was ok in my opinion and the way I like my creme brulees (lemongrass creme brulee) but you could notice that the deserts had stayed a bit too long waiting before serving.
