- Sunday DinnerProjectMDined on 8/17/2014My husband and I went to the Midtown location this past Sunday. We got to the city an hour early but decided to go in anyway. We sat at the bar, had Martini's and ordered appetizers. The Bartender, Eric, was very personable, the drinks were perfect, and he advised us which appetizers would be best, since we had already seen the menu online and knew what we were going to order for dinner. When we were seated at out table (at the actual time of our reservation) the staff was knowledgeable and attentive, but not intrusive. Overall, we had a wonderful dining experience and would definitely go back again.Special Features:
- Good food overalljeffVIPDined on 8/16/2014The food was good overall. A couple of points though. 1) Boneless 20oz strip steak was tough, not as tender as it should have been 2) Caesar salad actually had too little dressing. Two of us that ordere it bot agreed (and they put the cheese on top at the end, so it seemed even more dry). 3) We used a Groupon (in addition to ordering off the menu), and we were disappointed with the value of the Groupon. Was told I could upsize my steak, but then charged 2/3 the value as an upsize charge. Also we were supposed to get a dessert sampler with 3 desserts, but only got 2 as they were out of pecan pie (and we were not offered a substitute.

- So close to Penn Station!JohnTDined on 8/13/2014First trip to Uncle Jack's did not disappoint! Great dinner and very good service. Quiet enough to enjoy conversations during a Client dinner and everything we ordered was prepared perfectly. Can't believe its so close to Penn and we had never been there.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Lunch SpotShaf1Dined on 8/12/2014Had us in and out in 50 minutes. We had a group of 6 before a business meeting. I will be back!Special Features:
- not what I expectedLms0403Dined on 8/11/2014After watching Restaurant Steakhouse I was expecting amazing service. I was greatly disappointed! The website states it has a kid's menu yet when I asked about the menu the waiter seemed annoyed at me. He also never gave me one. Then I asked for a different glass for my 8yr old to drink her water instead of a wine glass and again he was annoyed. After those questions he started addressing only my husband and not me. I actually had to say out loud that he seemed to not like me for another person who worked there to actually be nice to me. She must have said something to him because as we left he started to talk to me, by then it was too late, I was mad!! I was hoping to enjoy the restaurant enough to cone back for a special dinner, not now!Special Features:
- Food just okHifeyDined on 8/10/2014For the price paid for dinner, I expect more. The steak was listed as prime beef, but tasted like choice. Meat was ordered medium rare and was served medium with too much char on the surface. Sides were just okay. Service was fine. Waiter was a bit snobbish but overall good. Nice ambiance. I'm just disappointed that the food wasn't special.Special Features:
- Impeccable ServicekayveeDined on 8/10/2014I can't say enough about this place the food the service all 5 STAR. ON OUR MOST RECENT VISIT WE WERE TREATED LIKE VIPS by Joel and the rest of the staff. A fabulous dinner from start to finish. When Joel found out it was our anniversary he had a cake with candles and champagne brought to our table it was a beautiful ending to a most fabulous evening I will remember fondly. THANKS TO JOEL AND STAFF!!!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- A hit on all counts4steakloversDined on 8/1/2014This was not my first meal at Uncle Jack's. I have had numerous business lunches here. The service was perfect. Not intrusive, but quickly there when needed. Our steaks were cooked exactly as ordered and delicious. The banana cream pie for dessert was a most pleasant surprise and a great ending to our dinner.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great date nightDivine4u88VIPDined on 7/31/2014Loved the food and the service was perfect! Try the crab cake appetizer, it's delicious.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food - A Must Try!TryingNewThingsDined on 7/31/2014When you walk into Uncle Jacks, you first notice the decor and ambiance - the 2nd story balconies are made to look like box seats in a theatre. The decor throughout the restaurant is almost swing era-esque. The service was great - our server was very friendly and helpful, he was even cracking jokes. Our food came out in a very timely manner, and the other staff were very attentive about bringing drinks, clearing plates, etc. The prices are what you would expect for food of that quality in the city. The Chicken Marsala was VERY flavorful, and the "Fred Flinstone" steak was apparently one of the best steaks my friend had ever had. Overall, I would definitely recommend Uncle Jack's, and will definitely be returning.Special Features:
- Second time doesn't disappoint52horsesDined on 7/29/2014This was the second time we came to this location and we enjoyed it just as much. Great service and lots of food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SO SO STEAKMETGUARDVIPDined on 7/28/2014THE PLACE HAS EXCELLENT SERVICE. THE APPETIZERS AND CAESAR SALADS WAS VERY GOOD. THE STRIP STEAK THAT WE HAD WAS A BIT TOUGH. IT HAD GOOD FLAVOR BUT MED RARE IS SUPPOSE TO BE TENDER AND NOT A BIT CHEWY. THE DESSERTS WAS VERY GOOD.Special Features:
- Loved it!!liznofVIPDined on 7/26/2014Thank you for a wonderful experience! My husband and I loved eating at the restaurant, the service staff was so wonderful and the manager came by our table and brought us a picture! The food was amazing and we can't wait to come back again. Thank youI would recommend this to a friend.
- Great dinner out!NYCFoodDined on 7/24/2014We went with the groupon 5 course meal. I liked that they were prepared and presented us with the menu and it didn't have to be some awkward "I have a deal" exchange. Service was excellent. So we had the meatballs and crab cake, house salad, steak with mashed potatoes (amazing) and creamed spinach (also amazing) and finished with a dessert sampler. Obviously it was a great deal for all that food, but it was also pretty delicious, so I would recommend going if you're in the area and looking for a nice place to go. It's casual and fancy at the same time (ie- not pretentious).Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Mediocre SteakhouseclearlinkDined on 7/23/2014Willy Degel brags about his customer service, "our CS in the best in world", I say it all crock. My steak was the same quality as Costco's. I brought it to the waiter's attention and I got was a dumb look. We got there 15 minutes before the reservation, table was empty, but still waited until reservation time. Looks like they have a lower grade of meat for Groupon clients. Don't waste your money.
- Uncle JacksJMB1VIPDined on 7/23/2014Every time I dine at Uncle Jack's the food and service are consistently outstanding. One of the best steak houses in NYC.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Chuck ForcucciChuckandBobbieNJDined on 7/22/2014First dining experience at Uncle Jack's. The service was tremendous, The atmosphere very nice and the food impeccable. Garlic mashed potatoes pretty average but the Mac and cheese and salads were very good. The steaks-- we had the rib chop-- were percection from the seasoning to doneness. Just amazing. A great restaurant for a special occasion, this was a great anniversary dinner. We will return!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Stellar service. Great food.aiornelasDined on 7/20/2014Hands down, the best service I have ever experienced. Ambience was great. Always good to find a restaurant in NYC that isn't ridiculously loud. Food was great. Had a four course pre fixe and every dish was delicious. Definitely recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- AmazingGunns911Dined on 7/19/2014From the moment we walked in the door my niece and I felt special. The surroundings offered great comfort in preparing us for the meal to come. The service could not have been better and I would give it 10 stars if I could. Both our head waiter and his assistant took the time to talk with us and get to know us. The head man knew when I wanted or needed something even before I did. That is impressive. Fantastic job peeps! I wanted to show my niece a little about fine dinning in the big apple and she left with an experience of a lifetime to share with all her North Carolina friends. Thank you Uncle Jack's, I could not have been more pleased.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Impressed...CookieVIPDined on 7/15/2014It was AMAZING! The bone in Ribeye was the best I've ever had, my whole 2lb lobster was cooked perfectly! My husband ordered truffle on his steak & it had no taste. The manager tried telling us that summer truffles have very little taste. True, winter truffle do in fact have a stronger flavor, but summer truffle definitely has "taste".... they took it back & told us the chef wasn't impressed with the truffle either. I as a Steakhouse manager would've taken it back & apologized with no "excuse". It didn't make a difference, the service & food were spectacular. I was very impressed with Elva, very attentive. Uncle Jacks is a winner and a definite favorite for us and will return...Special Features:
- Excellent MealLeslieKDined on 7/11/2014I had not heard of Uncle Jack's prior to dining here. The food was outstanding and the service was over the top. Definitely impressed - the decor was beautiful and I cannot wait to go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Uncle Jack'sMittenDinerDined on 7/9/2014Having watched Restaurant Stakeout many times I knew that Uncle Jack's was a must for my first trip to the Big Apple. The hostess was pleasant, the wait staff was attentive, the food was prepared to perfection.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Place !Hungry8Dined on 7/8/2014I have been to Jack's 3 times. Always good. The service is friendly. The only problem was it was a 95 degree day in NYC and the place was hot. It is pricey, but I would recommend it to anyone!Special Features:
- Not what we expectedDragonreview1Dined on 7/8/2014Friendly but food was not great. food was very salty we had to cancel our dish and go some place else.
- Stay awayexperiencedElderDined on 7/2/2014Food OK, but one of the worst service experiences ever. We waited 40 minutes for the bread basket and never got our side orders. Late for theater as a result. Charged for things we didn't have and then threatened by the manager when we complained. Bad service can happen, but there is no excuse for a surly response. There were 6 of us, and we will never go back or recommend.
- First Time Visitors to NYCTexasTravelersDined on 6/30/2014Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our lunch dining experience at Uncle Jack's. Not at all crowded at 11:30 AM on a Monday. Comfortable, quiet atmosphere. Pleasant, accommodating server. Lobster bisque was delicious. Melt in your mouth Kobe beef meat loaf is unlike any other. Our server recommended the french dip sandwiches which were excellent. I arrived craving a burger and the Big Jack with blue cheese hit the spot. We were pleasantly surprised when our server presented us with a complimentary bottle of Uncle Jack's BBQ sauce and an autographed poster of William "Jack" Degel. We look forward to returning for dinner on a future visit to New York.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great Birthday dinnersuevintDined on 6/24/2014We went for dinner on my birthday with another couple, my husband and I had been there before, but they hadn't. We each had a Groupon (which was a great deal, and I snapped up as soon as I saw it offered) We were a little concerned that our waiter would be annoyed that a table of 4 would fail to be a money maker for him, and we would receive poor service. I couldn't be more wrong, our waiter was great! He was attentive and had a great personality. The food was fantastic! Steaks cooked perfectly, sides delicious! We will definitely go back!!Special Features:
