La Castile Steakhouse
dre @ Dundas & Hwy 427: To shake it up a bit, Mike decided to try another steakhouse for his birthday dinner, so his brother suggested La Castile on Dundas. The building is really old and looks like a castle. The decor inside was really old fashioned and the waiters were all wearing tuxedos. It felt a little pretentious.
It was neat how they served pickles and cottage cheese with their garlic bread. The bread was really good, although some pieces were a little too burnt. Perhaps we were really hungry as well.
Mike started off with a French onion soup. It looked really gooey.
Each meal came with a house salad. It wasn't as big as The Keg's salad, and didn't come with other vegetables like tomatoes and onions.
My dad ordered the Prime Rib and it was HUGE! I really miss prime rib, and it's going to be one of the first things I am going to eat after this baby is born. :P
Mike ordered a New York Striploin with Peppercorn sauce. He said it was one of the best peppercorn steaks he's had. When I tried a bit of it the next day (after microwaving it), I thought it was just okay.
I got a filet mignon, and thought this tasted better than the peppercorn steak when well done. The beef was really beefy tasting, and pretty tender. I think this is the only steak I can eat when well done.
The side vegetables were really salty. The fries were really good, and the baked potato was nothing special.
Finally, I treated myself to a creme brulee cheesecake. It was a nice sweet end to a pretty yummy dinner.
To compare with The Keg, I would say that these steaks are not significantly better. The price difference is about $5 more, which isn't too bad. I do vote The Keg's atmosphere more enjoyable and less stuffy for sure.
