Is it just me or is it rather difficult to find good steak in the Bay Area?

I typically go out to dinner in SF, Oakland, and Berkeley and I'm having a tough time finding a good steak. I don't go to "steakhouses" like Morton's but go out on a regular basis (2-3x per week) and when I see steak on the menu at a new trendy restaurant it is usually a crappy cut like hangar or flat iron.

It seems rare to see a ribeye or porterhouse on a menu. Then the few times that I have ordered one recently, I have been disappointed with the texture. Most recently I was disappointed with the ribeye for two at Scopa in Healdsburg. It was charred on the outside and a lot of connective tissue on the inside. Texture was off and definitely not buttery.

The best steak I have had in the Bay Area is at El Paseo. But I don't feel like I should have to go to Mill Valley every time I want a decent steak.

Am I missing something?
