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.

    After reading the reviews I decided to try out Gallaghers plus it was close to my hotel. I sat at the bar for dinner. The bartender was very friendly and the service was great. I had an old fashion to start - fantastic. Onion soup was out of this world. I ordered the prime rib (get there early as they do run out). It came with au jus on the plate. It really was awesome. I saw that prime rib was on the cover of Fine Cooking this month was I was in the mood. I Highly recommend his trio.

    Great steakhouse; great steak. Watch out at the bar: the bartender was unbelievably rude while I was hosting an important guest. If the guest was not there, I would have jumped over the bar and given him a piece of my mind. Very disappointing: been going there for 30 years and never experienced that before. Bu the waiter was nice; the steaks great and the place is simply a classic NYC steak house.

    We celebrated a birthday dinner here and the service was outstanding! The steaks were cooked to perfection and the oysters were delicious. It was very expensive, but worth it for a special occasion. The bar was fully packed and the new decor is lovely.

    I am not sure about Gallaher's. Our dinner there was kind of hit or miss. we had a 7 o'clock reservation but our plans had changed and we arrived at 6:20. we were seated right away, which was great. However, we did feel very rushed. We were not finished with our soup when the waiter began serving our entrée. I told him we weren't ready for it yet but he explained since we ordered the prime rib it was ready and he was serving it. It was very good, however I would have liked some time between courses. There was an appropriate time between our dinner and dessert. Overall, it was an enjoyable evening but I don't think I would go back again soon.

    Had a great early dinner, pre-Opera. I asked about a menu in Spanish as one of the party did not speak English. Answer was negative but our waiter, Soto, explained that he spoke Spanish and he launched into some friendly banter about a great trip he had to Spain. We were well taken care of. We had 2 Porterhouse for 2 steaks that were fabulous. As expected there was plenty. For a red wine we were advised to try the cab from Silverado and it did not disappoint us. I had hoped to use Apple Pay and my new phone to pay but that did not work, but this may have been operator error. All in all we would go back in a second.

    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...
