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.

    We really enjoy the ambience of this restaurant; it's very pretty. The lobster salad was delicious (although I couldn't find any kale), and my husband loved his filet minon steak. Had some trouble getting bread, but there were only a couple of waiters so I can understand the mixup.

    Maybe they just had an off night, but our experience was quite bad, and surprising given the restaurant's general high ratings. The salad was overly drenched with dressing and too salty. The first glass of wine had gone bad. Second glass was okay. Service was poor, probably because we sat on the second level, and there are probably a lot of logistics they haven't figured out yet for getting food promptly to the table. The french fries were lukewarm when first delivered. The steak was okay, but nothing like what you can get at Peter Lugar or the Strip. The dessert of coconut lime sorbet was good. And the popover bread was good.

    If you are just looking for good food, this is an ok place. Don't try to celebrate a special occasion because it was my anniversary and it was never acknowledged. No one cares, so don't bother as NYC has many better options. 1 star for the chef and 1 for the decor.

    This used to be one of my UES favorites, having gone at least 5-6 times. I dined there last Saturday, and I couldn't believe what a terrible turn the food has taken. It was almost bizarre. The whole menu has been reworked (no more sushi, less emphasis on steaks, etc) and the quality of the food just isn't there anymore. We ordered a special kale salad, which was incredibly boring and something I could have prepared tastier myself, and the porter house for 2 which was hands down the worst porterhouse I've had in the City. Medium-rare was delivered medium-well and dried out. It was tastless steak and actually difficult to get down- frustrating given the $105 pricetag. It's unfortunate, but this place is no longer worth the visit. Save your $$

    Firstly let me say our waiter was excellent. Most of the food was good but the creamed spinach was inedible. Clearly not fresh and terribly salty. The waiter recommended a glass of wine which was more expensive than any on the wine list and didn't mentioned the price until the wine had been tasted when he suggested it was a real bargain at $26 compared to other places. Throughout the meal busboys leaned and reached across our table and tried to clear the plates before everyone was finished. For the prices charged i would expect professional service. I would not go back.

    The food is good, solid club fare. Nothing complicated, and always prepared with quality ingredients. The "wow" starter is a giant popover that is irresistible, even for the most carb adverse diner. The service however, consistently proves to be lackluster and was awful at a recent visit on Sept 15th. Our waiter was indifferent and when needed on several occasions, was chatting with colleagues in a corner. Our table of 4 ordered off the menu, no special requests, had cocktails, a $100 bottle of wine and were an easy going lot. Yet we all left that evening feeling the service detracted from our night. There are many other places to dine where you can be welcomed and served with a smile wanting for a repeat visit. We aren't running back.

    Our dinner was fine. The popovers were cold, the waiter didn't know much about the wine list and the food was a little bland (squash blossoms, black bass and branzino). However, the Brussels sprouts were excellent. A little disappointing given the prices and the recent rave reviews.

    We enjoyed the ambiance, but agreed that the earlier one goes the better. We dined at 7, and by the time we left, the place was rocking! The service was professional, the popovers delicious, the prix fix dinner at $38 for three courses was a real bargain. My crab cake was excellent, my filet tip delicious and perfectly cooked, and we all loved the peanut butter chocolate bar!

    Waited 45 AFTER my reservation time. Eventually seated after spoke to manager. Menu has been reworked dramatically. NOT good. The skirt steak had been removed from the menu. All steaks come with fries, asked to substitute vegetables for fries. Was told there are NO substitutions at all. It seems that the prices have increased dramatically while portion size of the steaks have dwindled. There was over 30 between courses. The restaurant used to be a reliable option. Significant decline from what it was.

    This was our first visit (brunch) to the Arlington Club. We had heard it was loud at night, crowded as well, so we waited awhile before trying it, and we went for brunch. We had a signature dish--popovers with poached eggs and a short rib. Very creative and delicious. The service was first-rate, and we were so pleased, we made a dinner reservation for this Wednesday (through Open Table) to see if we like the dinner menu.

    It was better than I hoped or expected. It was my birthday dinner, so I wanted it to be nice, and it was great. From the giant popovers to start, to the delicious dessert, and including the very expensive but big and delicious rib-eye, it was a wonderful dinner. And the service was polite, helpful and not intrusive.

    Certainly a steakhouse with style and panache--sides, appetizers, presentation are all more original than traditional steakhouses. Unfortunately the strip steak itself was disappointing. Although excellent flavor, the beef was chewier and stringier than it should have been. All things considered, though, I am willing to give it another chance

    We have had mixed experiences here. On one occasion, the staff was very rude, but on another occasion the staff were nice. The food is good and the menu is quite attractive, but I think the staff has an attitude derived from their status as a hot restaurant in the neighborhood, which unfortunately does not work to the benefit of the customers.
