They suck is a blanket statement, and a true one. Ruth's Chris is in a dismal apartment building on Van Ness and survives on prom and birthday from the near east bay and "hey honey let's go to the big city" from further out. I have been a few times, never my choice, and they have "fucked up" my steak, as you say they wouldn't, each time. I have been to other Ruth's Chris, this one is far worse, and far more dismal, that any of the others.
Harris' is also awful. There are a lot of drunk old men at the bar, if you want your leg touched or something like that, and the dining room is infected with plug ugly floral patterns. The steak is generally of mediocre quality, and often "fucked up."
5A5 is, as I said, for the nouveau not quite so rich on the weekends they can't squeeze themselves into too tight skirts and head off to Vegas. I think it even has a neon screen flashing above the bar.
The others, maybe? Alfred's was passable up until eight or so years ago, but they gave up, burdened by having to run a business in San Francisco as a family. They will tell you so, too. Mortons is a joke, and not a good one. I am sure there are more. For a while there was a "steakhouse" in a Holiday Inn in the Marina. I never went.
The joke is that the area has fantastic beef, perhaps the best in the country. And you can find it at a lot of good restaurants. But that isn't what Toots wants. So yeah, they all suck, and now you know why.
Now, since you decided that it was necessary for me to explain to you exactly why these places you suggested are awful, and to explain that without full descriptions my opinion was worthless, why don't you explain to us why exactly you should be taken seriously. I mean, you apparently have multiple blog posts about San Francisco, and that is very important in the credentialing process, and you once ate at a Ruth's Chris three thousand miles from here, but apparently have no experience with any of the places you recommend, and assure Toots and the Maytal that their steak will be cooked well, but you just kind of know, right?
