A word from Gallaghers Steakhouse
Founded by former Ziegfield girl Helen Gallagher and the colorful gambler and sports enthusiast Jack Solomon, Gallaghers opened as a speakeasy and steakhouse in 1927. At that time, the height of Prohibition, a good stiff drink and a great steak were hard to find in New York – except, of course, at Gallaghers.

New Yorkers come for the world-class cocktails and incredible steak – prime beef dry-aged for 21 days in Gallaghers’ legendary windowed meat locker. The combination of all-natural dry aging and cooking it to perfection over hickory coals makes for a steak unlike any other found in New York.

    We dined at Gallaghers Steakhouse with a group of six. Our waiters Mark and Umberto were very professional yet friendly. Food was fabulous along with the wine. We wanted to dine in Manhattan at a good steakhouse and Gallaghers delivered. Definitely recommended you go. This restaurant is near the theatre district.

    We wanted a NYC steakhouse experience and this fit the bill perfectly. The steaks were some of the best we have ever had. Our son had the swordfish and it was amazing. The sides were wonderful and enough for 2 or 3 to share. We had the mashed potatoes and asparagus - highly recommend both. Warning - go hungry because the portions are big!

    Gallagher's is one of our favorite steak houses in NYC.....actually in the world. The steak was cooked perfect and the everything was just spectacular. Service was top line with trained and determined wait staff and server. The aging steak showcase at the front door is one of my favorites, offering authenticity and wonder at the perfection of the offerings. Sort of an old fashion service style, several servers, rolling carts and perfection at every corner without even a slight bit of over-service annoyance or discomfort. They really do an awesome job and I will go back every chance I get and meanwhile just dream.......

    They serve as good a porterhouse as we have ever had which includes Lugers. Salad and sides were great with a decent wine list. The only short coming is their desert menu falls short. Service was precise and friendly even for a crowded pre theatre Friday night. This will become our new go to theatre dining spot.

    Very pleasantly renovated with professional service and generally excellent food. The only weakness on the menu, ironically, is the steaks which are large (as you would expect) but not especially tender or intensely flavored. Apps, salads, sides and non-steak dishes are all excellent. High prices, but a great place for before or after theater or a business lunch.

    The price was exorbitant for mediocre fare. Steak was good but nothing else on the menu was worth eating. A La Carte pricing for everything means you get a plate with your protein only unless you spend a lot of extra money for some veggies, potatoes or rice.

    This is the first time that I have eaten there and the experience was great. The wait staff was attentive and accommodating. The rib steak was fantastic and sliced for my wife and me before it was served. The veggies, corn and brusselsprouts were fantastic. We were given all the time that we needed to eat, nothing was rushed. Desert and coffee were very good and the bill was not outlandish. We would recommend Gallagher's to anyone who is a carnivore and likes excellent steak. I am going back

    First time here before a show down the block. From entering the door the service is wonderful and we were treated graciously and respectfully throughout our dinner. What we ordered: cherry stones, clams casino, steak, branzini grilled in a wood oven, Brussel sprouts, chocolate cake, tea. Yes, expensive, but everything was done to perfection. Two gentlemen near us asked about the oxtail soup that was not on the menu but once had been and the servers brought them what looked like an extraordinary meal in a bowl. I can't wait to return. Don't waste your time at Peter Lugers...

    Great welcome, short tour of the recent changes. Great greeting by head waiter. Drink & appetizer ordered at same time. Food arrived, not the drink. Large party nearby got most attention while I tried to find a waiter to track down my drink. Main course then arrived before drink. Wait staffs attention then improved after their earlier lapses. All selections were outstanding, and I will return again !

We had such a great time here last Saturday night. We were there for almost 3 hours and we were NEVER rushed. We did drink a lot of Wine! John our Waiter was very warm and very professional without being stuffy. The Steaks were done perfectly and all of the recommendations that John made were perfect. Awesome evening!

    We live in Germany and whenever we have the chance to travel to NY we pay a visit to Gallaghers Steakhouse. We have been there 4 times in the last 20 years and can confirm that the quality and service remains at a very high level. Nice surprise this time: The A/C was not as freezing cold as it was in the past :-) We will come back whenever the next opportunity arises.

    As someone who has been eating at Gallaghers for several decades, my first reaction was: "Where are the red and white table cloths?" "Where is the wonderful variety of breads?" "And what about the old photographs (many of which are no longer there)?" However, the food and service were superb. They helped us find a nice, cozy table. They treated us very well. The prime rib was excellent and the 1/2 chicken superb. And they graciously took our $20.00 Open Table check. A delightful evening!
