    Our party of four was seated in the back, which was preferrable because it was quieter. The appetizers were delicious. One friend ordered the halibut for the main course, but she is certain that it was not what she was served, although the waiter insisted otherwise. I had the rib-eye special, and it was a tough piece of meat. The waiter overheard me wishing a friend a happy birthday, and brought a delicious complimentary dessert plate at the end of the meal. One more thing - I had looked at the wine list on-line earlier in the day and picked something out, but the wine list I was given was different and did not have my choice. When making reservations on-line I signed up for a free $20 gift certificate, but never recieved anything.

    Rothman remains a favorite of mine - especially the one on 55th street - where the staff is friendly, the food is great and so is the atmosphere conducive to quiet meetings or group gatherings.

    Dined on 4/14/2014
    In N.Y. for ten days and it was our biggest disappointing and most costly meal we had. I really did not want to even write a review. Had the Rib Steak and if it was PRIME Beef I would be very surprised! It was overcooked a little (ordered Med. Rare) It was pink only but very dry and I wasted much trying to find moistness. Never again there are too many places to eat to suffer this way! We had lots of servers but never did know our Waiter. It was not busy! Russ Blake (Boise Idaho)

    I am from VA and was visiting family in NY. My cousin Pedro told me he worked there and I showed up the next day. I ordered the famous spinach creme with salmon and rice pilaf. My friends ordered rib and we had appetizers and desserts. The wine brought from Japan was excellent, the limoncello and the coffee. Hmm. Great experience! Service provided by Pedro was exceptional. He's so friendly; he introduced us to the owner and to other friends seated at another table. It was a rainy night but at Rothmann the climate was perfect. Thank you!

    Dined on 3/17/2014
    To start, our waiter was completely uninterested in serving our table of 5 business women. After 35 minutes of waiting for our dinner to be served, we asked our waiter how much longer it would be to get our npmain course. He rudely informed us that there was a large party ahead of us and they would need to get that table served first. Our dinner was finally served and our steaks were over cooked. Manager did take two of the dinners off our check since we din not eat any of it howver they should have done more to compensate for the over all rudeness and bad service. We will not return to this resturant!

    I had lunch at Rothmann's with my parents during the recent nyc restaurant week. They really need to improve on the service side. First, it took them about 10 minutes to bring us menus. Once we placed our orders, the waiter first brought us dishes that were meant for another table. We asked for bread but it never came. Not until I inquired about the wine I ordered, I was told that they ran out of it. So I got myself a different one. Then both glasses, including the one they ran out showed up on my bill. Through out the course of lunch, I just couldn't feel that I was dining at a midtown steakhouse.

    Rothmans was as good as expected. We arrived a little early due to our showtime and received excellent service from start to finish. They have a wide-ranging menu which is available online. We started with the seared shrimp and scallops which was excellent, and my wife and I both chose filet mignon's for our main course. She had the pepper encrusted while I had the Gorgonzola. Both were cooked to order perfectly and we augmented them with the fabulous steak fries and sautéed green beans. Each item was excellent. The only negative was that the blue cheese dressing for the salad was a bit thin. As the dinner hour progress the place became busier in a bit louder but it was an excellent dinner and I would recommend it highly..

    Rothmann's was better than I expected. The food and ambience and decor were all consistent with top line steakhouses in the NYC area. The service was better than good but not outstanding. The menu was deep and competitive. Where it was lacking was originality and creativity. The menu could have looked the same in 2004 or even 1994. Places like STK, Primesteak, and Del Frisco's might be bringing in a younger audience because of their bar crowd and/or their sharp menu and energetic wait staff. Portion size is NOT an issue for Rothmann's. Sides come in healthy sizes as do the entrees. No one leaves here hungry. I would come back again but I don't know that I would seek it out.

    The restaurant is really nice and fancy! Two of my friends and I went for the restaurant week menu, which was great. They have three different appetizers, entrees, and desserts to choose from. Since it was three of us, we tried everything and the food was delicious. Obviously without the restaurant week prices, it is mega expensive and unless you have extra cash on the side or are celebrating a special occasion I wouldn't go.

    Capital Grille prices for Outback Steakhouse food and service. Dry lobster and overcooked steak. The best compliment my wife, who is not hard to impress, could come up with was "the amount of scallops were just right." I don't complain about stupid small things normally but I am paying $100 dollars for a surf and turf I should not have to walk my own coat to the coat check after being seated because the hostess did not offer to take it. It was empty on a friday night. I should have known then that we were in for it.

    No wonder they are in their second century. They know how to grill a steak and chop to perfection. The Caesar salad dressing was superb.The Rothmann salad was fabulous.BIg enough to split if you want to. The sides were delicious and plentiful - our group shared the mushrooms, the creamed spinach, and some potatoes. Our server, Patrick, knew his stuff too. We listened to him and were rewarded with a terrific dining experience. The service was attentive; the attitude welcoming; the pace and timing of the meal unhurried. Just a grand holiday spent in the City with our out of town friends.

    The food is not worth the money. I have paid the same price or less for a much better steak in Washington, DC and several other major capitol cities in the US and overseas; my comparison of value is not based on one city. Find somewhere else to eat if you want to drop $200 for dinner for two. The service at the door was great; coat check, reservations held, they read the note about my wife requiring a GF menu. After that, downhill. The head waiting staff were slow and slightly rude like they didn't really want to work there; felt like we were a minor inconvenience being there. This attitude was consistent with other customers. The lower level staff and busing waiting were friendly and helpful, they seemed happy to have their their jobs.
