Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a dinner on late Thursday evening there and the place was quite empty. However, we really enjoyed it. Really professional and kind service, tasty starters, high-quality steaks and wines - all worth the higher-scale price in Jyväskylä.

4 stars for food 4.5 stars for service 4 stars for atmosphere 4.5 stars for price worth The atmosphere was lovely, but taking in consideration that we visited on a Thursday evening and so it was not busy. Music was nice, not too loud and...not a too low, just perfect to enjoy the background music while being to discuss comfortably with my daughter 22y even though there was some 3-5 minutes where music went off. We have small stomachs so we shared a starter ordered each a main then shared a dessert. It took around 2 hours from when we sat down to the moment we left. Starter was escargots in garlic and cheese sauce, perfectly cooked still juicy yet a light crunchy top crust created by the cheese and garlic. None of the flavours were over powering so everything complemented each other beautifully. (I really needed to stop myself when I got the urge of dipping my finger into the dish to lick the remaining if the sauce… I am so proud of myself for not doing that 😂) I took the “BLACK ANGUS TENDERLOIN” medium+ and Cognac and green peppercorn sauce. My daughter ordered “FINNISH RIB EYE” also medium+ with Creamy mushroom sauce and we shared Rustic fries as a side. The steaks were cooking to a perfection, the sauces were almost perfect, I would have liked few extra peppercorns in my sauce, but it was lovely never the less. For dessert we shared an “AFTER 8” which was warm chocolate cake served with mint ice-cream. The mint ice cream was a beautiful one (it was a like a real hand made ice-cream), I would have preferred a bit peppermint flavour but that is personal preference, to be totally honest the ice-cream was a true delight and worked well with the chocolate cake. Said that the ice cream is a bit too powerful in flavour, so when eaten with the cake, really small portions should be taken to each bite, if by mistake a little more of the ice-cream is taken it covers the cake flavour totally. Now to the cake, it was heaven on earth to lava/mud cake lovers (my daughter is one, I rarely like chocolate desserts). The rock salt in the cake gave me that little pleasure of salt/sweet flavour that I find enjoyable, the middle of the cake was perfectly gooey. And for me adding that little of the mint ice-cream made it perfect. I can’t believe I enjoyed a chocolate dessert this much. My daughter described as the most perfectly satisfying cake she have had in a restaurant in many years. The waiter/waitress was wonderful. The waiter/waitress asked the right questions, recommended drinks even though I was sad that I had to stick with water, came to ask how things were 3 times throughout our meal and asked if we enjoyed or had any comments after each course. The waiters were around but not too nosy nor bothering the tables. We had the perfect timely wait for each dish and they were placed so nicely in front of us. I believe I will visit again when visiting my daughter in Jyväskylä.More

Outstanding quality in meat. We had perfectly prepped reindeer, tenderloin steaks, duck etc. Starters and sides were excellent, desserts are finger-licking delicious. Stefan Richter Steakhouse is a must when dining in Finland. Don‘t miss it!

As the name says, it's a steakhouse so nothing much else on the menu. The biggest issue is the price. It's certainly overprized for the quality of the food. Especially if you don't take the set menus the price is incredibly high. Wine prices are...extreme. One could also say the menu is little on the safe side, even boring. Some items were not as good as supposed to be. Eager waiter but some recommendations were not too goodMore

Eventhough this place is sort of a chain restaurant, it still has good food and service. We took three course menu for 59€. Little minus: I ordered medium steak but it was medium rare/rare. Nice dessert with melty chocolate and mint icecream. Good service overall....Closest tables to the front door are bit chilly. During the weekend the restaurant is quite full so I recommend booking the table online which is easy.More

We ate and drank here with a couple of friends, and the overall experience was great. The food, drinks, and service were excellent. I ate one of the best wagyu steaks that I have ever tasted and all the other dishes were good. Be prepared...to pay a higher price for everything than in other restaurants in Jyväskylä.More

Myself and my partner have just returned from a short break to Jyväskylä. My partner has visited a few times in the past with AGCO through Valtra and he fell in love with Finland and tempted me into wanting to see what it is like...myself. Whilst we was away on our mini break, he treated me and gave me the option to pick a restaurant to have dinner at during one of the evening’s we was out there for. I picked Stefan’s Steakhouse. We was NOT disappointed!!! We walked through the door to a cosy, warm looking restaurant and we sat down by the window. We was greeted by a extremely friendly and cheerful waiter who to our advantage even spoke excellent English!! (I’m very sorry, I can not remember his name). All evening he assisted us with his own recommendation’s for the main meals and desserts. He gave us a beautiful mini bread selection with butter and then chocolates to enjoy with our coffee’s at the end! My partner has visited this place a few times before (during his AGCO trips) so he knew how amazing the steaks are there!! For myself, I’m 27 years old and had never tried a steak in my life until I visited here. I was NOT disappointed!! It was beyond divine!! Overall, it was a pleasure of a evening to dine here and when we return in the future, we shall 100% be coming back to Stepfan’s as well!!!!!More

Every time we have been to Jyväskylä we ate at least once in Stefan's Steakhouse. The restaurant is cosy, spacious and extremely welcoming. The service is fast, and the servers are friendly and helpful. They offer fresh water and a delicious bread (with the possibility...to put butter on top of it.) We tried, more or less, every meat dish and we have never ended up disappointed. All meat dishes are stunning (and we recommend to add a sauce and a side dish for a pleasant, complete experience.)More
