My husband and went here for our Anniversary and I can't recommend this place highly enough. The service was excellent,the food was delicious and they made us feel special from the moment we walked in. They even gave us a complimentary desert for our anniversary. Love this place! First class all the way.

Above average steakhouse
I've heard a lot of great things about Uncle Jack's so I booked a table for a business dinner. From my perspective it's a steakhouse that has better service than most. However the food was on par for an upscale steak joint. I have no complaints and would definitely recommend this place. I'll be back

The service at Uncle Jacks's was phenomenal. We had a wonderful dining experience.

One of the best
We frequently visit steakhouses, and always enjoy returning to Uncle Jack's. It's one of the best around! Not a thing to complain about...great food and great service. Reasonable prices. You will want to go back again and again!

Love the Steak Again
After going to Uncle Jack's several times, it seems that the steak was not as good as it first was.
However, this was the first time at this location. It seems that the steak was much better at this 9th Avenue location.
I gave the food a "good" rating because the pork chops my girlfriend had were dry and flavorless.
I don't know if it's true. But, it seems to me that the prix fixe menu they use features inferior cuts of meat.

We went out on a limb and decided to try Uncle Jack's while in town visiting from MI. We decided to make it our last meal in NY and get somewhat dressed up (i wore a sundress and my hubby a button up and shorts) We saw a wide range of people, from wearing sports shorts/tshirts, to others being a little more dressed up. The inside was dimly lit, for a romantic setting, which was great, but it also had kind of a stuffy feel to it. The waiters were in suits/ties, which felt somewhat uptight, but very pleasant. The food was fabulous! We had filet, lobster tail, asparagus and a baked potato. All cooked exactly to order! If you're looking for a great steakhouse, I would definitely recommend it!

My family wanted to come here
My family wanted to come here while they were in town, but I'm vegan so I was rather skeptical that I'd be able to eat anything at a steakhouse. The staff at Uncle Jack's was extremely accommodating to my dietary needs, which I really appreciated. Our server was friendly, but I did feel a little rushed. The manager (I think) came over at one point to see how things were, but it felt un-organic, sudden, and forced while my family and I were in the middle of conversation. Overall, the food and experience were good, but extremely pricey.

On a business trip to NYC we made a special effort to eat here because of the show, Restaurant Stakeout. We ordered the steak for 2. We also split a ceasar salad, onion rings and garlic mashed potatoes. This is what we normally order at our favorite steakhouse in Syracuse (Delmonico's). All of our food was split onto 2 plates table side. I REALLY liked this! The croutons on the ceasar salad were a bagette sliced thin, seasoned with melted cheese YUM!. The steak buttery and could have been cut with a butter knife. The garlic mashed potatoes were seasoned perfectly. I did not love the onion rings, because I prefer light flour, not batter dipped. I took the chocolate mousse cake to go and it was AMAZING! with blueberries and cream

A Great Experience
Me and my girlfriend went to Uncle Jack's because one of our favorite TV shows is Restaurant Stakeout and we are very impressed with Willie Degel. We were not disappointed and enjoyed great food with impeccable service. The staff was professional in appearance and demeanor. They were extremely attentive yet not intrusive. Everything was served quickly and efficiently yet you never felt rushed. The water glasses were never allowed to get empty. Everyone seemed genuinely concerned that we were getting what we needed and to take pride in what they were doing. The food was delicious, basic and yet with little details like the addition of subtle ingredients that enhanced the taste considerably. We hope to go back again soon.

Met expectations and more!
Everything was wonderful! Waiters, servers, and especially
the food! Would recommend to anyone! But be sure to take a lot of money!

Dependably very good
When in the neighborhood we like Uncle jack's for dinner - great steaks and sides. Excellent service; cozy ambiance.

Service was impeccable, and
Service was impeccable, and the food and drink was excellent. The prices are high, as you should expect for a steakhouse in Manhattan, but we enjoyed splurging on this special treat!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was out first time at Uncle Jacks, and we were not disappointed. We have been to many steak houses in Manhattan and were looking for something near the Javits Center, so thought we would give this one a try. Food was fabulous, service was impeccable, and ambiance was lovely. We went on a Sunday afternoon and they were serving Brunch, but we ordered from the regular menu. Other diners were having Brunch and all dishes that passed our way looked lovely and I would give that a try next time. Pricey, as all good steakhouses are, but the Porterhouse for Two was outstanding! We would definitely return, and try one of their other two locations should we be in those areas.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always great food!
We first stumbled upon Uncle Jack's by sheer accident. We now stop there every time we are in New York. Great food, service, ambience, always!

Every time I go to Uncle Jack's West Side I request Spiro. He's a great server who gives efficient, personal attention and is very entertaining. Great!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
The atmosphere was relaxed. We felt comfortable as if we were in our own personal space. Each member of the party though that the food , service and setting was excellent
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding Food and Service
This was my third dinner at Uncle Jack's Westside, and all three visits were excellent in terms of food and service.

Great Place, Great Meal, Great Time
There were 6 of us for a business lunch. On the pricey side, but you usually get what you pay for in NYC. You can order from either the lunch or dinner menus. Huge wine list, at almost all prices. We had a great NYC lunch.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
One on the best NYC Steak Houses. I highly recommend their bone in Filet Mignon. They also have a lobster mac and cheese thats out of this world. If you like pork chops try their 1lb pork chop with a boubon sauce reduction. YUM.

One of the Top Steak Houses in NYC
We enjoyed ourselves, the food was very good, the steaks outstanding. The service was excellent, everything came to the table in a timely manner, the food was hot and ready to eat. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Steak and Great Service
Hit this place after a business meeting, had a few cocktails at the bar then steaks for dinner. Our waited recommend the pork chops for an appetizer and they were awesome. The steak was great and out waiter gave us good recommendations about the menu. I would defiantly go back to this place.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
My son goes to NYU and I wanted to go to a place with great food since a break from college food would be welcomed. He brought his roommate and we had just wonderful service and exceptional food. We all had the NY Strip and it was cooked to perfection. We even had to take some home since we couldn't finish it in one sitting. I'm sure they will be the envy of their dorm floor!
Thanks Uncle Jack's for a great dining experience and some bonus points for a Dad treating his son to a memory.

Insulted by the maitre d
Have been coming here since 2010. Haven't been here since Jan when I was on leave from Afghanistan. So the maître d and greet team have all change. Peter, the new guy, came to check on me and my wife during our meal and make some small talk. He really didn't need to. He made what I considered some very offensive comments about folks from Nassau County, and proceeded to follow it up with negative comments about folks from across the entire metro area. Talk about open mouth, insert foot...
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love this place. The service and food are amazing. I had a lunch meeting and everyone got the Lobster Bisque which has a wonderful presentation and is outstanding. I will be going back for dinner and checking out the other locations.

As a frequent visitor to Jack's it always amazes me how consistently good the food and service are. They provide top quality meals in an atmosphere that is warm and inviting.

Luncheon meeting find
There are not many choices in this area to take customers to lunch, so Uncle Jacks was a find. Food was great and our waiter was friendly and fun with his banter... He truly added to the ambiance a true NY experience .
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great lunch in midtown!
My business partner and I invited a potential hire to join us for lunch at Uncle Jack's. We shared two starters, namely the mozz/tomato salad and the bacon. The mozz/tomato salad was delicious, and you could really taste the freshness of both. As for the bacon, just one word - INCREDIBLE. I called it candied bacon, but whatever you term it, be sure not to skip over it when you go. For lunch entrees, my partner and I both had the Kobe burger while our guest enjoyed to Kobe meatloaf. The burger was cooked perfectly and quite delicious, and our guest raved about the meatloaf. We will definitely be returning.

Great special occasion spot
My husband and I went here for our anniversary after a recommendation fe a client. We were seated immediately upon arrival, even though we were about 10 minutes late for our reservations. The waiter came over immediately and introduced himself. We ordered our drinks and awaited our food. Ou appetizers came pretty quickly after the bread. Our entrees took forever however. We were accommodated for the wait by giving us a discount. We were also surprised with chocolate and whipped cream for our anniversary. Nice experience.

The place is really nice, the food is great and service is excellent!

The good and the ok
My husband and I were looking for a casual steakhouse, and Uncle Jacks seemed to fit the bill. We ordered the traditional wedge salads which did not disappoint - huge that we could have split! We also ordered the 10 oz filet mignons. My steak was cooked to perfection, but my husband's was overdone for being medium well. The sweet potato fries were disappointing. Some were undercooked. The mashed sweet potatoes were bland. The dessert that they brought out was phenomenal - molten lava cake for my husband's birthday. The dessert for my husband's birthday, and the excellent and attentive wait staff made this experience very good. Too bad that the meal wasn't as good for my husband as we had hoped.

1st time at Uncle Jack's SteakHouse
Love the brasserie Atmosphere
Steak was a little too rare at first serving
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a wonderful time at Uncle Jack's! We were with friends in the city for a
concert and decided to have an early dinner first! The food was outstanding,
from appetizer to the dessert! Our waiter was courteous and attended to
all our needs! Will definitely be heading back the next time we are in
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always another great dinner at Uncle Jack's. They may not be the best steak in NYC but they are darn close. Their service is amazing and never disappoints. Great wines by the glass and a great beer list. If you are near MSG there isn't a better place to go
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wanted a "mans meal" before the Knicks game and was recommended to Uncle Jacks. The offerings were great hard to choose from. Good thing the specials made it easy so went with the bone in filet. Cooked absolutely perfect, one of the best steaks I've ever had. The meal couldn't have been better. Only one issue I was brought a beer glass with a chipped rim, the server should have noticed that since pour beer at table. But once I showed him after I noticed it, they went and got me a new glass and new beer which was the right thing to do. Otherwise excellent and I'll definitely be back.

A top notch dining experience
Uncle Jack's is still one of my favorite steakhouses in NYC. Although pricey you get your money's worth with an amazing, high quality meal. The steak is always cooked to specification, the appetizers and sides served hot and delicious. It's not as well known as other's in the city and I like to think of it as my family's little secret. 4th time returning to this restaurant and every time its was a superb dining experience.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great spot but noisy
Food excellent as always, but deafening noise level. Spent the whole meal leaning across the table and could still barely hear my companions.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything went perfect. We had a 5:30 reservation and arrived one half hour early and were seated right away.
The Service and food were excellent.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I went to New York from England for Thanksgiving and Uncle Jacks was recommended to us before we left the UK. As it was the holiday season, we booked a table direct from England and the table was waiting for us when we arrived. The food was fantastic. We shared a starter (crab cakes) and these were full of crab meat and very tasty. The highlight though was the Filet Mignon steak which was incredible. My wife had the small portion while I had the larger one. Both were cooked to perfection. Service was quick and attentive without being intrusive. Overall, a faultless and thoroughly enjoyable evening.
