John Howie Steak Restaurant Review: John Howie Steak elevates the traditional steakhouse experience --- it raises the bar by focusing on details and quality, just as John Howie’s Seastar did for seafood. The sexy lounge is popular at happy hour and the spacious dining room hosts power lunches. At night, the space takes on a mellow glow, and private booths can ensure an intimate evening. The steaks are USDA Prime: filet mignon, porterhouse and bone-in rib-eye, to name a few. Can’t decide? Order the combo to compare. Mesquite creates a smoky flavor and light crust to keep in the juices. Or check out the bacon cheeseburger, prime rib, juicy chops and a daily fresh sheet of seafood, such as Parmesan-crusted halibut. For sides, consider the creamed spinach or enormous, five-cheese stuffed potato. Bananas Foster and the lighter Meyer lemon pie are dessert options. Since beef is the star, the wine program is heavy on reds (bottles range from $19-$2,100), and there are 60 by-the-glass choices. Service is attentive and gracious.
