    Not sure that you'll find a better restaurant in the city serving authentic bistecca fiorentina. It's their name and they lived up to it. Great ambiance and location on restaurant row. Wonderful house chianti.

    Nice dining experience but somewhat on the pricey side. I would advise shopping around on 46th for a better deal. Back in the day this eatery would let you substitute a side of pasta for the veggie accompaniement, no charge. Not the case today. The wine service was a bit rushed in an attempt to prompt ordering more. Unlike previous visits, there were not many diners on site for our 8 pm reservation. Food was very good with the exception of a rissotto entre that was looking more like a side dish than an entre. Used to love this place but ready to move on.

    A great place to go for a quiet lunch or a romantic meal. Loved the clean, crisp feel of the place--white tablecloths, fresh flowers, pictures of Tuscany. I went for pre-theater lunch. The location was ideal, prices reasonable and the food tasty and fresh. Classic show tunes were played in the background as a plus! Great service and no pressure--we felt like we could sit and relax before the show.

    We arrived exactly on time. Our reservation was verified on their computer system but not registered that we had arrived. Hence, a later email from Open Table asking why we did not honor our reservation. Food was great, all four different entrees. Service began well but soon became slow and surly. If I had wanted that kind of service I would have gone to a French restaurant.

    There were three of us eating at 8:30PM before a late 10:00PM curtain. The staff was very friendly, a bit funny, and prompt with their service. For the first course we all had a different salad each of which were delicious. The second course included a mushroom ravioli which was outstanding as was the steak that was served. My zuppe de pesc (fish stew) had a great broth but the shrimp came in their shells and I hate that as that makes it messy to eat. One of the best theatre district restaurants I've eaten in.

    Had eaten here about a month ago and found the food to be more tasty and better presented than this time...it was just ok. I had the veal medallions with asparagus and it was the parmesan cheese on top that gave it any flavor. Staff is friendly and nice but not overly attentive. Location is great, close to theaters and that is why we selected it. Décor could use a bit of updating. Would probably try it again, maybe they were having an off night!

    We visited in May, 2014 and were pleased with the experience; turn off busy 8th avenue onto this block of quiet, delicious restaurants. Service was outstanding; we ordered off the pre-theater menu, which included an appetizer/salad, an entree and dessert. Prior to dessert, we were close to our theater time, so they hurried things right along. Really impressed!

    Bistecca Fiorentina did not meet our expectations, despite the fact that it was recommended by a good friend. One of the dishes we ordered, at considerable expense, was a salmon / pasta / asparagus dish that, while tasty, literally had 3 tiny pieces of salmon in it! When I politely mentioned this to our waiter, I was greeted with a hostile glare! This was especially unexpected as we spoke with a lovely, friendly woman when we phoned weeks earlier to make this pre-theater reservation.

    Restaurant is well situated in the lively NYC theater district. Room is comfortable and inviting with good noise levels. Food was excellent in preparation and presentation. Starter Antipasto was sufficient for 2 and a very tasty way to start a meal. Veal Chop was large in size and broiled to perfection. Veal Marsala was a hearty dish with a plentiful portion to eat. Sides are easily shared between 2-3 people. The thing that most impressed me was that prices were moderate and their wine list contained several choices that were very reasonably priced ($25-29 range) which is difficult to find in most NYC restaurants where $40-50 seems to be the norm. Overall an excellent meal. Would gladly return on next visit to city.

    I like strongly seasoned food and Bistecca Fiorentina seems geared toward a bland palate. The space is lovely, the wait staff was responsive without being intrusive. The food isn't bad by any means and my companions who had the specialty steak raved. I had the Theatre Menu (bowtie pasta with salmon, Minestrone, and creme caramel) and it was all rather disappointing. I'd go again only for the Florentine steak.

    We have been to Bistecca Fioretina on many occasions for pre-theatre dinner, and have always enjoyed the excellent Italian, and the fact that the service is efficient if not charming. If you arrive at 6:30 they can get you out easily for a 8:00 curtain. I have to say though that on our most recent visit our server was unusually gruff and unhelpful. We asked for a few items that weren't on the menu, such as Biscotti for dessert, and the answer was "no". Not "I'm sorry, but we don't have it, but just "no". What Italian restaurant doesn't have biscotti? Anyway don't mean to be harsh- this is a great little Italian restaurant for pre-theatre. We were just a little annoyed by our last visit.

    Had dinner here before going to see Kinky Boots on a Monday night. Made reservations but didn't really need to as it was empty (then again it was only 6pm). Sat outside on the small patio which was nice. Our waiter was very nice and friendly. I had penne w/ lobster and my partner had a NY strip steak. The pasta was ok - nothing really memorable and the same goes for the steak. The décor inside was cute. For the price point you could probably find somewhere else that might be more memorable.
