Great choice for pre-theater dinner
A group of us went to West Side Steakhouse before the theater. The menu was interesting and varied, food and service were very good. They made sure we got out in time to get to the theater. We will go back.

Overall an excellent evening
Overall an excellent evening that was difficult to fault. The calamari starter was lovely and we really appreciated the honest advice from our waitress that one each + a steak might be too much and that we might like to consider sharing the starter. Such honesty is rare but the owner ought to be proud as we are definitely more likely to return as a result. The steaks were great and well-priced when compared with the more well known NYC steak houses.
In short - great food, friendly and honest service, lovely wine and pleasant atmosphere. My wife and I will definitely return when we visit NYC again.
Tip was included in the bill - maybe a mistake as we would have probably given more!

When it comes to value, this
When it comes to value, this is the best steakhouse in the city. Prices cannot be beat.

NY Strip is good value for money
Went here for a dinner for two. Lamb chops and slab of bacon as starters. Lamb was so-so (not so juicy for medium-rare), bacon was very thick and tasty. Filet Mignon and NY Strip as main. Filet Mignon was ordered medium-rare but came out quite dry. NY Strip was medium rare also, but cooked to perfection (really juicy and rich of flavor). Pleasantly surprised, especially considering the lower price point when compared to other steak houses and the Filet Mignon. Reasonable selection of wine, also by the glass. Overall; would go back if in the neighborhood.

We have been to this restaurant
We have been to this restaurant a number of times. It does not have the ambiance of an old time steakhouse but sometimes I don't need ambiance to eat steak. The steaks are very tasty and done as you ask. They have shellfish as well. They do charge for sides but you get plenty and they do not overcharge as most steakhouses do. Service is attentive and not overbearing. Eat here, you'll enjoy it.

Good Dinner at Westside Steakhouse
My friend and I went there for dinner the other evening and we were happy with our choice. I'm not a big steak eater but my friend was in the mood for a good steak and she choose the Rib Eye, it was thick and she said very good. I had a chicken and shrimp scampi dish that was also very good. My only complaint would be that everything was a la carte. You get nothing with your entree, no salad, no potato , no vegetable so it is a little pricey if you want to add sides. And lastly the tables are very close together. so when the table behind me was filled I felt trapped and I could hear their full conversation which was very annoying and intrusive. Go early and ask for the front table by window and you will be ok.

Enjoyable Meal in NYC
We made reservations thru Open Table, just to be on the safe side. Our hotel (Yotel) is very close by, and we noticed this restaurant on our walk back to the hotel earlier.
We arrived on time, and our table was ready in 30 seconds. The waitress was efficient, the drinks arrived in good time. The menu is not extensive, but good variety - there would be something for everyone. Between the three of us, we had a little bit of everything - scallops, French Onion soup, Caesar salad, steak - and it was all prepared wonderfully.
The staff were efficient and friendly, the atmosphere was New York's version of relaxed, and it made a nice end to a rainy New York day.
Maybe not outstanding in any way, but certainly Very Good in every way!

Good Choice in Theater District
Good choice of wine and drinks. Excellent starters - we tried mussels and crab cake, both as good as they get. Nice choice of mains. We ordered the pork shank with risotto and the duck, which was dry but tasty. Pork shank best ever, and risotto outstanding. Mac n'cheese side perfect. For dessert we enjoyed pecan pie w/ice cream and molten lava cake, also w/ice cream. Good end to an excellent meal. Tomorrow starts the diet.

A Great Find
My luncheon party enjoyed a pre-theater lunch prior to seeing a nearby matinee. We were served by a friendly staff and had a more than reasonable lunch special: grilled chicken with broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes over penne pasta. It was simply DELECTABLE!! We enjoyed the intimate atmosphere and will certainly return to try dinner. With dessert (not included) we each paid $20 including tip. Where else in NYC is this even possible??
KUDOS to you Westside Steak House!

A Good First Time Choice
While a bit West in the theatre district, the the food was of very good quality and attractively served. We had lamb chops and filet mingon, and both were prepared as ordered, and very good cuts of meat. The prices were very reasonable.

Very good Far West Side steakhouse
Very good Far West Side steakhouse with excellent wine, charging fair prices -- something unusual for a Manhattan steakhouse.

I went for my parent's 25th Wedding Anniversary, and it was lovely. The restaurant is smaller than I imagined, but that didn't matter. The steaks were out of this world- I had the rib eye and my parents split the two person porterhouse. My boyfriend had the lamb shanks and they were really good as well. I highly recommend the asparagus side!

Not only were portions generous, the food was delicious and salmon and filet mignon were cooked to perfection...appetizers and salads were great. Consensus from all four members of our party was that the meal was one of the most delicious restaurant experiences we could recall. Price was incredibly reasonable for fine-dining in Manhattan. Highly recommend.

Great Lamb Chops
Enjoyed an early dinner at 5:30pm before a Show. Lamb Chops were a nice size and grilled esparagus with balsamic were delicious.

It was a very fine alternative
It was a very fine alternative to restaurant row with less traffic, more attention to the patrons and an overall pleasant experience

This is a solid, traditional steakhouse. Not a cheap place overall, be excellent value for a steakhouse in midtown. I really like the place, have seen the owner on the premises, and think the staff does an okay, if not exceptional job.

Great food at affordable prices
i thought the restaurant was great. Had a good crowd, so you know the food is pretty good. Wait staff was friendly and nice. I didnt feel rushed to be done with dinner. Nice atmosphere. Dinner was nice. i loved the sides i ordered. Sauteed mushrooms and creamed spinach! yumm. I ordered a pasta dish, which was okay. The pasta sauce was too salty for my taste, but i generally eat a low salt diet, so it will probably be okay for others.

Fantastic food, Nice service
Last Night in NYC, wanted a Nice peace of meat, so we had the Porterhouse! Perfect taste, perfectly cooked, needed salt and pebber, like everything else we tasted in NYC.
Watch out for noise from the inhouse bar, not our thing.
Would come back for the food though, but maybe not for romance.

I booked this restaurant from Montréal, trip advisor had a pretty good review. The food was very good, I had salmon my friends had steak. Ample portion and you chose your own side vegetables and potatoes at an extra charge but okay. We were going to the theatre so it was a short walk. It is fairly small and intimate and nice and warm on a cold night. Maybe too warm for some. Service was excellent. Quite a small lively bar near the door, looked like regulars or having a drink before they ate. Price was moderate to high depending on your budget.

Best Porterhouse for Two!
Our steak was prepared perfectly. The baked potato was delicious too !
We also recommend the chocolate lava cake for dessert. It's a must eat at
