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.

    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.

    I had to discard of fatty pieces of steak into my napkin. Not sure I've had to do that more than once at a steakhouse. Hey, it happens I suppose?? Either the way the porter house for two was good, at least the portion that was edible. Way to fatty if you ask me. The popover bread was excellent, as was the sides that came with the meal, fries, brussel sprouts, and creamed spinach. The AG steak sauce and the béarnaise were also quite good. The Arlington Club cocktail while pretty good isn't worth the ridiculous price of $15. They were out of the bottle of wine we wanted but the substitute was fine by me. The peanut butter bar desert may have been the best part of the meal and I'm not even a dessert person. Overall pretty good.

    Enjoyed the service from the moment we walked in: Attentive, respectful. Great wait staff. Each course was served in a timely manner. The appetizer, unusual artichoke dish, was excellent. The filet mignon was prepared to perfection and the brussel sprouts were outstanding.

    I have been to Arlington Club a few times before and while it was overpriced for what it was, the food was fine. Unfortunately, my luck ran out. I ordered a steak medium rare, I got a medium well steak. I also ordered a nice bottle of wine, which was listed at $90 on the wine list I was given. When I got the bill, I was charged $125. Apparently I got the one wine list that hadn't been updated to raise the price. I had to pay because apparently I am supposed to be psychic to know they gave me a menu with an incorrect price.

    Arlington is continuing the restaurant week menu for lunch. indefinitely, so run , don't walk there for the best deal in town..start with gazpacho, mussels or salad. The whopping popover is Devine. Move on to a filet , (about 5 oz.), or fish, or a couple of other entrees, and finish with dessert. A $ 25 tab for good food and service in a fine restaurant in the fancy dancy upper east side is worth going to again

    It was very crowded I'm assuming due to restaurant week. We waited 15 minutes to be seated but we grabbed a drink at bar that costs us $40 for two mixed drop which I thought was a little pricey. We got seated upstairs which was nice. The waiter was very nice and informative. The portions were very small but food was good.

    I had a reservation for 8:45 and wasn't even seated by 9:20. I understand that the restaurant was crowded but the hostess should have let me know they were running a little behind when I checked in on arrival. I ordered my steak rare and it came out well over medium. I was so hungry by the time our food actually came out that I didn't care how it was cooked. The steak was still tasty but it wasn't as enjoyable as much as it should have been, had the chef prepared it the way I ordered. The service was also extremely slow, but our waiter was friendly and he recommended an excellent wine.

    We enjoyed Arlington Club, but the food portions were minuscule. True, it was Restaurant Week, but an obvious reduction in portions is not the intent. Typical of this, the sorbet portion for desert was virtually the size of a tablespoon. And, we received our check even before we finished our meal. Shame !

    Recently took my daughter and her boyfriend to Arlington Club for dinner - they live near by and were surprised they had never heard of the place - I was curious to see how they would like the place coming from a different generations (or two) perspective. They both loved the place, the energy, the design, and as always the staff was great.

    A steak restaurant with a sushi menu? Yes, and you will be pleased with either. Popovers are super good. Beware , there is a charge if you ask for a second one. It is super noisy so if you want to hear what your dining partners are saying, go early. If you get there very early, there is a pre theatre prix fixe. Bar is busy with singles. Food is wonderful, though pricey.

    I'm not sure who this restaurant is for; it's jam-packed every night, so it must be for someone. The atmosphere may be less objectionable in the evening. It looks like a designer was trying to update an Old West conception. The ceiling fixtures are hideous; the booths and tables are cheap-looking. A restaurant week lunch of Caesar salad, petite [sic] filet, and coconut-lime sorbet was excellent The filet came with two different sauces and was cooked exactly as specified; the fries were well-done, as specified, though not as tasty as some fries elsewhere. A nice popover was served at the beginning .

    I went here with a group of 6 on Friday for a restaurant week dinner. I loved the vibe and decor, it's comfortable while unique. Everyone enjoyed their meals, although the restaurant week portions were small. Popovers they give you to start are amazing! I had and would recommend the tuna tartar and petite filet! The only item I wouldn't recommend is the chopped veggie salad. My friend that chose it barely ate it.

    My friend and I ate at Arlington Club during Restaurant Week, so I feel we got a different taste of what it's usually like. The menu is very pricey (there's a steak for 2 for $125) but we ate prix fixe for $38. The portions were small so it was actually perfect that we got three courses. The salmon was amazing and my friend's steak was to die for. I had the gazpacho and it was the best I've ever had. I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone with the money to pay for it.

    Went with two buddies for our ritual steak and scotch events and really enjoyed it. Staff was absolutely solid, from the hostess, to the bartender to our waitress, who was particularly great. Was helpful, polite and attentive but without being too obtrusive. The appetizers were a little on the smaller side for a steakhouse but I did like having sushi and sashimi options available. Octopus salad was excellent. I had the bone in Filet Mignon which was perfectly cooked medium rare (more to the rare side as I asked for) and tasted amazing. The sides (brussel sprouts with pancetta) were excellent but again on the smaller side. This isn't a trendy spot but its a great steakhouse with some new cool concepts baked in and a nice buzz to it.
