A word from Arlington Club
Arlington Club is a bi-level classic steakhouse located at 1032 Lexington Avenue between 73rd and 74th Streets in the Upper East Side neighborhood. This space was formerly the home of the Lenox Hill Republican Club in the 1920s, an ice-skating rink called Ice Studio from the 1970s to 90s.

Diner Reviews
  • "It was the first time we dined at Arlington. We all ordered salads as appetizers and since the waiter advised us that the salads were generously sized, each couple decided to share their salads. When the salads arrived, they were not split and arrived without companion plates. We asked the waiter to have the kitchen split them. He quickly returned with the salads and spare plates telling us that the kitchen refused to split the salads. Really?! Heroically, the waiter attempted to split them but was having quite the time doing so. Eventually, we took care of it. The steaks were quite good as were the potatoes and brussel sprouts. The restaurant was busy and so noisy that we could hardly hear one another. Very expensive!"

  • "Food and drinks are excellent, and service superb. But I think it's the space that really distinguishes this from other area steakhouses. Incredibly cool brick vaulted ceilings. Beautiful bar. Has a classy, retro feel with great energy. Recommended."

  • "The food was delicious and place is beautiful. I had arrived early and Eric at the bar was so great and knowledgable that I might become a regular just at the bar."

  • "As always, Arlington Club was wonderful. Greeted warmly, seated on time and served well. Short rib lasagna........SINFUL!!!! Salmon done to perfection. I usually eat at the bar but sitting at a table for a fuller meal was a treat."

  • "What a great find on Lexington on the UES! Great service and awesome food. I can't believe how many times I walked by and never went it! A great spot for a date or a group."

  • "Great service, decent atmosphere, but the food was very disappointing, to say the least. They charge $65 for a bone-in ribeye that was smaller than you get elsewhere, and it amazed us how little flavor there was to their ribeye. If you're going to charge that much for the meat, at least produce a steak that tastes great - not good, but great!"

  • "A lousy waiter and service ruined what might have been a decent evening. In summary, this place offers average quality level food with lousy service at top level prices. No wonder that it was 1/2 empty on a Saturday night."

  • "For such an expensive restaurant the service is sub-par. Though the servers aim to please they are, for the most part, inept."

  • "Excellent restaurant!! Food is outstanding, from the sushi to steak to deserts, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu!! Staff is so wonderful, one of my favorite spots!!!"

  • "This was my second time eating at The Arlington Club. The first time I went it was with friends for dinner. The food was phenomenal...everything is perfectly prepared. The restaurant was a little loud, though. At lunch recently when the restaurant was less crowded received the same excellent food in a quieter environment."

  • "Wicked noisy from the front bar but throughout the restaurant. Okay for those who don't mind lots of noise around them. Food okay but steak under-cooked for medium and tough."

  • "Good food, good service...I like the fact that there was a Robert Foley wine on the wine list"

  • "Why does a place like this have a large screen TV!!!! I took my wife to have a romantic dinner and people at the bar were yelling at the TV including the Bar Tender. If I wanted to go to a sports bar I would. We also had the pleasure of being told what we ordered. When we said to the waiter that he made a mistake in our order he confidently said that he made no such mistake. I love being told what I ordered.... Same.... the place has potential "

  • "The house cocktails are sweet, light on alcohol, and very expensive for what they are. Stick to the wine, or straight liquor. Bartender and service staff were shameless about charging so much for a weak, rather tragic drink. Tried a couple at my table, and switched to a martini, which they were less likely to ruin."

  • "Arlington Club has become one of my go to spots for brunch. Excellent menu with nice calm ambiance and the pricing is good for what you get. I do not recommend the place for dinner though. Jammed with major UES pickup crowd with very high prices at dinner. There are far better places for steak in NYC."

  • "All aspects were top of the scale. Happy to see you and serve you. Top of the line food. Superb Bordeaux."

  • "Nice set up, great menu, although very expensive. $90 per head without booze and we shared a 2 person steak betweem 3! Love the place tho."

  • "Don't know where to begin. The waiter impatiently clicked his pen while we ordered. Took the food an unreasonable time to arrive. Wasn't tasty. In fact food was overlooked, greasy and poorly seasoned. Even the fruit platter was terrible - it was frozen! Not sure how you can screw up an entire dining experience. Would never eat there again or recommend to anyone. "

  • "My guests ran 15 minutes late, and I was advised that they'd hold the table, BUT they were going to kick us out at a certain time. It turned out ok, though dessert was a bit hurried. Food was very, very good, and the service terrific."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I only go for brunch. Reasonable value with good selection. Dinner is way too crowded with a crazy bar scene. The steaks at dinner are too expensive compared to what is available elsewhere in NY."

  • "Great atmosphere; food and service is excellent Popovers a great starter "

  • "Food was good, waiter tried to pad the bill by bringing food and the worst part we practically sat on top of another table."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Terrific waiter (Sam) who pointed out good recommendations on the menu and on the wine list Restaurant has terrific ambiance and décor, quality of food was excellent - much better than average cuts of steak. One of the owners stopped by to see if everything was to our liking. Food cooked at we requested. "

  • "1. Our waiter didn't come by our table for 15 minutes, at which point I had to ask the manager to send him over. 2. Our order was put in wrong. 3. My father's steak came 5 minutes after ordering (it was the wrong order). 4. Then my sushi, which was my entree, came out, and had to be taken away. 5. Literally (LITERALLY) every time we needed out waiter, we had to flag him down actively. The service was so bad it ruined my experience. At such an expensive restaurant, here in New York no less, it's just simply unacceptable. "
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "Still working out links in the kitchen, once the good arrives it's delicious. The server was honest about the potential slow arriving food. Our wait wasn't long. The attitude of our server made our experience great!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I am a "regular" here and love the place. Staff is great, food is great and great vibe. Great local spot, great destination spot. Wonderful for one at the bar or 15 upstairs. And the new live music on Fridays is a good addition... And not too loud!!!!"
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "I walked out of the restaurant after waiting 15 minutes to be seated and waiting one hour for the popovers. My appetizer did not even arrive after 90 minutes. The worst restaurant that i have ever gone to. This was my second try and it was worse than the first."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We have eaten at Arlington Club a number of times in the past and always had a good experience. Our most recent experience was decidedly mediocre. Starting with the pop overs that tasted like they had been sitting around for a while, then moving on to extremely salty French onion soup (almost to the point of inedible) and finally overly seasoned filet. All the while, the service was slow to non-existent - which was surprising given our 5:30 reservation and empty restaurant. "

  • "If you want a nice cut of meat to share with a partner, this is one particularly good choice. The food was excellent and the atmosphere is romantic and lively. Have the Cote de beouf. "

  • "The food was good - but the service and management was awful - not only waited for a table for over an hour - but it was a birthday - called 3x to make sure cakes were ready - and got nothing and when we complained - they were arrogant. For a high scale place they hire the most low scale rude people - DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY"

  • "Overall a very good value. Generous portions, wonderful popovers and nice pickles. Onion soup painfully sweet, salad delicious. Filet mignon was tasty if a bit overcooked. Branzino excellent. Fruit desert superb. Service quite rough. Every dish to four people in 3 courses brought to wrong person and runners didn't find it easy to correct. Will try again."

  • "Good food bad service. That is the story. After being put in a corner, the staff climbed over the table thrice to get wine bottles off the shelf. Then attitude about a request to change tables. Steak was delicious but over priced."
