When it comes to a romantic night out, Well-Traveled member Amanda has a unique twist on the classic 'surf and turf.' This luxury travel lover prefers her steak served with a side of breathtaking ocean views, and we wholeheartedly agree that it's the ideal recipe for a perfect LA date night! 

1. Mastro's Ocean Club

Mastro's is more than food; it's a whole night out. It's got live music in the Piano Lounge, a raw bar for all you seafood lovers, seriously amazing steaks, lobster mashed potatoes that are out of this world, and their famous warm butter cake. It's just like the other Mastro's joints, but this Malibu location's views make them stand above the rest.

2. The Arthur J.

This is a fantastic steakhouse that truly nails that classic, old-school steakhouse atmosphere. Picture dimly lit, swanky d├ęcor that feels like a step back in time. They serve up some of the juiciest, perfectly cooked food, and when it comes to dessert, you absolutely can't leave without trying their famous warm butter cake. It's an irresistible, gooey masterpiece. Their cocktail game is strong too, with a bar that crafts some seriously tasty drinks. So, next time you're in LA and hankering for a classic steakhouse experience with a dash of old-school charm, you know where to go!
