A word from Maloney & Porcelli
Maloney & Porcelli is a clubby new American restaurant that draws inspiration from a simpler time when three martini lunches were alive and well, steak was for dinner, and servers anticipated guests’ every need, even completing dishes tableside. Begin meals at Maloney & Porcelli with a selection of shellfish, salads or favorites such as Baked Clams Orsini, Peekytoe Crabcake, or Steak Tartare that is finished tableside. For the main course, there is a choice of steaks and shanks, including the famed Crackling Pork Shank with Firecracker Applesauce, lobsters and composed options such as Chicken Under a Brick, Pan-Seared Atlantic Salmon, or Beef Shortrib Stroganoff. An array of inventive sides complete the meal, like Gruyere Soufflé, Fried Herb Tater Tots, Broccoli and Pimento Cheese. The desserts inspire nostalgia with a individual red velvet cake served, grasshopper pie for two, and a selection of house-made sorbets, sherbets and ice creams.

    When waiter approached the table I thought he was the busboy.... Nice guy, but didn't have the 'waiter' presence which tells me that he hasn't been trained properly. Ordered steak medium rare, and came to the table rare... It took several minutes for me to get waiter's attention, and he whisked it off promptly. I took a bite of the creamed spinach while I was waiting, and it was lukewarm at best, so when the steak came back (recooked with slice missing) I had to send the creamed spinach back. Waiter, meaning well, delivered a side of mashed potatoes to me to tide me over until the spinach came...and immediately left before i could tell him I had no interest in the mashed potatoes. Sigh... Decent steak, but certainly not the best I have had in NY.

    Second time at M&P and can't w to go back. Superior food and service. Deven our waiter was the best server I had in years & years. Traditional house w NYC style. Attentive staff & perfect dishes from appetizers to deserts. Mentioned my wife's Birthday- and a simple stylish cake and candle appeared! Subtle and classy all around! THANKS M&P! I'll be back soon.

    Dined on 11/14/2014
    I ordered a sirloin steak , medium rare. I received my steak with a singed top but my first few mouthful had carbon - this was certainly not what I wanted to taste. The internal consistency was also inconsistent - some parts were rare and some medium rare. of course this could vary by restaurant but my grouse was that it was inconsistent. service was prompt and attentive throughout. Portion sizes were large. I ordered a side of baby carrots which also looked a bit overdone - perhaps that's the style of the chef. didn't work for me

    We've been coming to M&P since the 90s, and it's always a lot of fun. This place is always hopping Friday at lunchtime. Top notch service, great pours from the bar. It's a nice, broad menu, but the kitchen doesn't consistently get the job done right. The portions are typically generous, but the cooking is frequently subpar--as it was this time. My Muffaletta was OK, but nothing special. My wife's burger was awful. She ordered medium rare and it came WELL DONE. Shameful. The homemade ice creams for dessert were excellent. We will continue to come back, but it's less for the food than the overall fun experience.

    Overall great experience - recently went for dinner with former work colleagues; started at bar and was surprised at the generous cocktail size - usually only the price is large! After warming up we were seated and enjoyed excellent service and food. The Silver Oak magnum was also an affordable wine selection to go with the steaks. If you haven't tried M&P go ahead, you won't be disappointed.

    Let's start with the table. It should not exist in a decent restaurant. Right next to the 2nd floor kitchen door and a work station. Steak - not cooked as ordered and not juicy or tender. Wine - good and reasonably priced. Service - attentive and knowledgeable, except about how the kitchen cooks steaks. The kitchen DID prepare a special grilled vegetable main course for one (non-vegetarian) member of the group. It looked pretty good.

    I visited M and Paul on the recommendation of a friend. My reservation was late at night as I had been to a Broadway show. Possibly I was therefore past being at my most - hungry. I ordered the signature dish. Pork shank with apple sauce. To say it was massive in size would be an understatement! It was certainly tasty, but the size of the portion was over-whelming. Lovely restaurant and great service though

    I really liked the atmosphere, the service was great. I was really looking forward to a great steak after running the NY Marathon. Didn't live up to expectations. I felt the filet I ordered had the texture of New York cut rather than a filet which is always my steak of choice at home or out in a restaurant. At this price point I expected better quality. More obvious grainy texture if that makes sense with not a lot of flavour. I felt for the calibre of restaurant they fell short here. At least on this occasion. The sides were delicious as were the desserts (Red Velvet Cake :) I think the wine list leaned to the high end as far as pricing is concerned. An okay experience but wouldn't bring me back with so many other choices in the city.

    I decided last minute to celebrate my birthday with a big steak. I made a 10 pm reservation. The staff seated me quickly, offered a drink, and the level of good service never ebbed. My wine glass never sat empty, my server knew the menu and checked on me enough to be attentive, but not so much he hovered. The ribeye was perfectly cooked and flavorful, the asparagus nicely done. Dessert was huge and delicious.

    Potentially overshadowed by other big name and newer steak joints in the city but it shouldn't be. Steaks were so tender and cooked perfectly. Great wine list with a number of true gems tucked away. Service was impeccable- almost too good! Noise level is fun but you can have a conversation- something I can't do at other competitors.

    M.P. is a good NYC steak house. As with all VERY expensive. They forgot to place the order for my dinner so my husbands steak sat getting cold while they tried to hustle mine out - which I told them to forget about it. They did offer us free desert for the inconvience but later took the forgotten item off the bill after a conversation with a very nice GM. Overall ther sister rest. Quality Meats is better. Stay clear of tater tots - you could bust a tooth on them.

    My friend and I had the pleasure of dining at Maloney & Porcelli this past weekend. The service was fantastic and my filet was awesome. The smallest filet I could order was a 10oz and with traveling from out of town, I couldn't take leftovers with me; a small cut would have been preferable. While the service was indeed fantastic, the servers were almost "hovering." All in all, fantastic meal, great atmosphere and wonderful service!

    Went to Maloney and Porcelli for a social occasion recently and was absolutely blown away by the food, service and entire experience. The staff were aware we were celebrating but we're very discrete, which made it perfect. They were also extremely happy to accommodate the party's dietary requirements. Fantastic meal of scallops, surf and turf with fries and vegetables, followed by the red velvet cake. Cannot praise the restaurant enough.

    As always the first restaurant we go to in New York is always Maloney and Porcelli. The food is fabulous and the atmosphere is fun. We really enjoyed our meal this time due to the location of our table, which was downstairs by the window and more private. The steaks were magnificent and two people could easily split one, although we had lots of great left-overs. We always take advantage of the wine pairing which makes the evening even more enjoyable. Job well done.Huge shout out to Owen, our server, for outstanding service and humor, and a special thanks from the GA football fan!!! Sorry Arkansas lost!!

    We dined for dinner. First of all it was so dark the waiter could see we were struggling to see the menu so he turn the lights up. We had an veal meatballs as an appetizer. They were just ok..A little too salty not much flavor. We both ordered a house salad which consisted of a half bag of mixed salad greens and a 1/4 of unripe tomato. I ordered the pork shank and I had no idea it was fried! It was not stated on the menu. There was so much fat on the piece that it was tough navigating to find the meat.The firecracker applesauce was tasteless. My husband did enjoy his salmon dish and we both enjoyed the icebox chocolate cake and pineapple sorbet.

    Chose Maloney & Porcelli because 1) curious about the $79 wine dinner, 2) open late enough on a Thursday night to have dinner after a 7pm Broadway show. Well! The staff was very polite and professional, and did not hover. The food was excellent-my guest said they'd never had a better filet, and the wine choices were very good (Decoy-yummy). I will definitely return, and recommend Maloney & Porcelli to others!

    I have gone to M&P frequently over the years and always been pleased. My lost recent visit was disappointing. The scallop appetizer was nearly tasteless and a bad value at $19. The steaks were at best "okay" but that M&P prices, I expected more. Service was cloying. Not returning for a while.
