Club A Steakhouse
Always a great experienceOnce again my husband and I had a wonderful evening at Club A. The staff is always extra attentive without being invasive or pushy. The food is delicious and plentiful. Can't wait to go back again.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak in StyleBeautiful renovation of the former Bruno's and transformation into an A-1 steakhouse have turned this venue into a destination. A happy Monday night full house crowd seemed wowed by food, hospitality and service. The Petite filet mignon (a hefty 10 ounces) was as succulent a slab of beef as you are likely to have. The side dishes were all delicious. Our fish eater (bronzino) declared himself full satisfied, and the classic desserts —cheesecake, tiramisu, profiteroles -- were demolished in seconds.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMgreater than the sum of its partsEverything, food, service, ambience, were very good. When added together, the experience was outstanding. There are very few places that make my "must return" list, but this one definitely does.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMClub A is A+Fantastic restaurant. Great food. Courteous and prompt service. Highly recommended.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to previous timesI've been here around 6 to 7 times. The food is pretty consistent and always good. Service is spectacular and the ambiance is memorable. I was surprised they had live music playing as well. You'd hear the singing better though if you stayed closer to the bar.
I've been here for dates, with friends, Valentine's day, and Mother's day. Once in a while, I'd spoil myself with eating good steak food.
Even though I'm tempted to try something else but steak (like lobster), I think it wouldn't do justice to skip that in a steak restaurant.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMYou will love it hereAll of the reviews are correct. The food and service were wonderful. The owner stopped by the table to greet us and made us feel very welcome. The only constructive criticism we have is that there is no smaller size steak for someone with a smaller appetite like my wife. All in all, you cannot go wrong if you spend an evening at this restaurant.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experienceCrab cake and different slices of beef were excellent, wine recommendation (by the owner) was great (very good and affordable), service was very friendly and listening particularly thanks to the welcome and diner follow-up of the owner.
Some suggestions for improvement:
1. the sauces were too sweet (perhaps more suitable to American taste - I'm French) but the meat was so good anyhow that sauces were useless!
2. the mashed patatoes were a bit too salty. But the Boss assured it will be taken care of!
A highly recommended steakhouse!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaksWent there with my 2 cousins and my girlfriend to try the beef.
Great food, cooked as I ordered, great service.
For some reason the tips were already included in the bill.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and atmosphere.Excellent food and atmosphere. A wonderful experience of dinning.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite restaurant. AllA favorite restaurant. All personnel very attentive, including Bruno, in all respects. I do view the price of a glass of wine as a mite high. Perhaps that induces purchase of a bottle.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food; classyFood and service were excellent. Speaks volume when the owner is present and introduces himself to each table. You just don't see that enough these days. Will definitely go back.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of the best placesThis is one of the best places for steak (and more) and you cannot beat the service. We've been several times and each time it's a very special experience, especially due to the service.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat For Steak and SonsThis is our third time eating at Club A and each time our experience was first class. As my son likes steak I took him here a couple of years ago as a father son night out. He loved it. Took the whole family this time and every dish was good. But, if you like steak.....obviously don't order the chicken.
Owner walking around and speaking to each table is nice also.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time here.This was our first time here. Overall, the experience was positive. Service was good. The food was good but a bit overpriced. The Filet that i had was a bit dry even though I ordered it medium rare. The setting is nice4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly, attentive service.Friendly, attentive service. We were in a rush to get to a show and they were most accomodating. Great steak.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best places toOne of the best places to have dinner, especially at the bar. The entire staff, including the owner, makes you feel like you've known for years. You can't find places like this anymore. The food is outstanding, especially their seabass, truffle mac and cheese, mash potatoes, creamed spinach and boned-in rib eye.
I wish there was a place like this back in Atlanta... I'd be there every weekend!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI can not get enough of Club A.....I have lost track of how many times I have dined here but EVERY time just keeps getting better and better! From the same welcoming greeting by Bruno(who is always working the floor and sometimes has his granddaughter Vlora and grandson Luan doing a walk through with him), to the friendly waitstaff and the most DELICIOUS steaks you can get in NYC, Club A Steakhouse is hands down my FAVORITE steakhouse in NYC. And with their extensive wine list with BEAUTIFUL and OUT OF THIS WORLD decanters to go with the wine and the warm family run establishment feeling, you dont feel like your being rushed or kicked out of your table like Wolfgangs or Peter Lugars. Its all about the food and comfort and making you feel like your a part of the Club A Family4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent FoodI enjoyed great food and also atmosphere in the restaurant. Musicians were playing music, which made a delightful ambience there.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and wonderful staff.Always a great experience at this place, we dine here often.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA-1 on All FrontsWe were treated like royalty — celebrating a 100th birthday— and served superb food.

Used a groupon so it was very affordable.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply put, OUTSTANDING!!Simply put, OUTSTANDING!! Best New York strip and filet I have eaten. I've eaten at many of the great steakhouses in the U.S. and this ranks amongst the best. Family owned place, cozy, but most of all the steaks were cooked to perfection!! The owner was sincere, he cares and the food and service represents it. I will return each time I visit New York!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently spectacularThe best steak I have ever eaten, hands down. We have been to Club A Steakhouse several times now and the food is consistently spectacular. The wine is not marked up the way it is at other fine restaurants and it is served in a really neat decanter. The owner remembers us and makes us feel like VIPs.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI really wish I would getI really wish I would get to Club A more often. They never disappoint. Not just a great steakhouse, but a great restaurant. Bruno, his family and staff make you feel a part of their family.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEven though we used a groupon,Even though we used a groupon, the service we received was amazing and the portions were great. It was my husbands birthday and they acknowledged it for us. Great place to celebrate or just for a romantic dinner.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGood placeThe decor is great! I was there for an evening with my significant other, the atmosphere was really nice.
The food is good, but it wasn't the best steak I've ever had.
We also tried:
carrot soup - delicious!
king salmon - okay, but I wouldn't recommend it, it was too dry for my taste
mashed potatoes - great! Really good and delicate
creamy spinach with truffle oil - great! Really good (taste differently than usual spinach) very delicate
tiramisu - I wouldn't recommend it, too creamy and too delicate taste
cream puffs - okay, but I wouldn't recommend it3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWowThe wait staff was friendly helpful and went out of there way to make the evening terrific...we were there to celebrate my birthday. The staff brought us "on the house" an appetizer of lobster ravioli....it was tastey fresh and let me tell you, being from Maine, it was the best lobster ravioli I had ever tasted, I had a steak that was so well prepared,tender and cooked exactly to my specification. We ordered desert and out came a sampling of tarimasu perfiterol and our chosen desert on a plate that said "happy birthday". We observed that many of the tables around us enjoyed the same. The owner came to each table to greet and ask about the food, this was a unique experience,,,3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Great Experience at Club A!I have been coming here for years. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the owner, Bruno, is the consummate host. The service was friendly and attentive, without making us feel rushed at all. Our steaks were cooked exactly as we ordered and the overall experience was wonderful, as it is every time.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAll in all a wonderful experience.All in all a wonderful experience. Very evident that owners take much pride in their establishment. A must come back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Place To CelebrateWe initially planned to visit Club A Steakhouse to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, but It became an even bigger celebration after he popped the question earlier that day in Central Park!
Anticipating how much we planned on eating, we skipped out on appetizers and dove right into the main course and sides. I had the filet mignon and my fiancé had the prime NY strip. We opted for the pan-fried mushrooms, the truffle mac and cheese, and the garlic fries as sides.
The meat was cooked perfectly, and the sides were very sizeable, and everything was very delicious. Only downside? Our waiter disappeared at some point through the evening. Would have loved to thank him!
Great for celebrations of life events and romantic evenings out!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTop class steak houseAfter doing a bit of research before our trip to NYC this restaurant looked promising and despite our high expectations we were not let down, the food, in particular the steaks were out of this world and cooked to perfection, the whole experience was top class from the service, the food and the atmosphere, the personal touch was an added bonus. Definitely worth a visit.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and exceptionallyGood food and exceptionally nice staff. We will definitely be back.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMJust an overall good SteakJust an overall good Steak house.... Service and food are always good.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and serviceAte at 8:30 and it was packed. House salad was okay. Lobster ravioli was phenomenon. Good filet mignon. Only complaint was the portions were too large... 16 ounce filet? 8 ounces would have been fine.The wine list wasn't bad either. Worth a trip.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent in every way!I've been to a lot of steakhouses, both in NYC and San Francisco, and continue to be impressed highly with the quality of ambiance, food, and service here.
Let's start with ambiance: nice mood lighting, slight red tinge to the lighting makes everyone look healthy and attractive.
The tables are spread out so you have privacy and quiet (relatively speaking), which is a real plus in Manhattan.
Service? It is about as good as it gets. Totally not pretentious, just the opposite! Very helpful, friendly, willing to split any salad or dish, ready to bag it to take home. Just great service.
And the food? Delicious! We had Canadian Bacon, Caesar salad, Sirloin steak, German hash browns, sauted mushrooms, lobster ravioli, and Brussel Sprouts3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went hereMy husband and I went here for an Anniversary celebration and we were very pleased. He had a filet mignon (not dry-aged), and I had a t-bone (dry-aged). I had a glass of house wine-Pinot Noir, which was excellent, then we were brought complimentary lobster ravioli appetizer which was excellent. We got a baked potato and an order of creamed spinach to share. The spinach was VERY garlicky, but creamy and delicius. The steaks were cooked perfectly as ordered. The waiters were very attentive without being fussy. The owner came around as well, checking that we were enjoying ourselves. We were brought a dessert sampler, and then a lovely piece of mousse pie with 'Happy Anniversary' written on the plate in chocolate. Excellent!2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again...loved the WildOnce again...loved the Wild King Salmon and great service. It was hopping by 8pm every table filled. Bruno has done it once again....a great fun restaurant with fabulous food.1/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth it!Went for Restaurant week. Great menu for Restaurant Week.

Great experience.1/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThank youCelebrated my sweetie's birthday, and the staff could not have planned the surprise celebration better! The food was excellent - I LOVE THIS RESTAURANT!
