This is a must-go if you want to have a "teppanyaki" experience. Teppanyaki is a cooking style where you see the chef cook the steak (or various other foods) on a large iron plate. Steak Maruyama is a high-end resto known for its exquisite wagyu beef teppanyaki steak. They also serve teppanyaki seafood that you should definitely try as well. The dinner courses range in price from ¥3,800 to ¥13,800. You can order a la carte as well.
Located near the Susukino Station.
Steak And Wine Ishizaki
This is another high-end restaurant for true beef lovers. Ishizaki serves locally raised cattle from the Ebetsu area. The quality and freshness of the black cattle wagyu beef are so outstanding that they even serve beef sashimi delicacies. As you may expect from such a restaurant, the courses are quite expensive, starting at ¥8,640.
The Meat Shop
The Meat Shop is a popular place for a good inexpensive steak lunch (about ¥1,200). With your plate, you get 200g of meat, some rice and a small salad. The Hamburg steak is really popular too, and they also serve some steak sandwiches that have really think pieces of meat in them. If you go in a group of 4 people or more, there are some course meals that start at ¥3,000 in which you get chicken, pork, rib roast, and more!
This is the kind of place you go to on a special occasion. It has a classic European interior with a huge window on one side overlooking Sapporo's famous Odori Park, so you get a beautiful view while you dine. The dry-aged beef is just sublime. Under a controlled environment at the restaurant, the meat is aged for 4 to 6 weeks and grilled in a very high-temperature oven for the serving. This results in meat with a well-done outside and a soft, succulent inside. Expect to pay around ¥3,000 for lunch and ¥8,000 for dinner.

They specialize in Hamburg steak as well. Why not have your meal with a glass of red wine?
