“The Best Steak House in South Africa”
Reviewed 22 February 2017

This review is long overdue. I have been coming to Steve's Local Grill for years. I have never had a bad meal. The service is excellent and the waiters are very well trained in all areas. A visit to the cold room is a must in order to understand what ageing conditions are required to produce the perfect end product.

“One of Jozi's better steakhouses”
Reviewed 20 February 2017 via mobile

Have been there a few times recently, they show decent consistency in food and atmosphere. It's name says it's a steakhouse and that's what you get. Steak (medium rare) can occasionally be a bit short of succulent, think of this when contemplating a sauce.

“Business Meeting Dinner”
Reviewed 15 February 2017 via mobile

Set menus was delightful. Starters where served as platters for the table giving you the ability to sample all on offer. Main course was a choice of meat, calamari and a vegetarian dish. The Rump I ordered was done to perfection. The veggies where very tasty. To top it off we where treated to a tour of the kitchen and a quick lesson in different ways to cook meat. The guide has a real passion for food and what he does. The service and atmosphere was exceptional. Highly recommended if you want a good night out with fantastic food
