  • "I brought my family to S & W for my wife's birthday and we were not disappointed. We have eaten in our share of fine restaurants and the quality of food, wine and service at S & W ranks it among the best. One of the tastiest meals ever!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The only issue was our steaks were cold. The view sitting outside was nice and my son enjoyed his Birthday. Service was overall very good."

  • "We went for my birthday. They greeted me with a birthday card. Our waiter was great. Fun cocktail menu and my steak was perfect. Huge piece of chocolate cake for dessert."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Went to S&W specifically for burgers(aware burgers are typically served in bar/lounge areas, manager stated no problem to order if we sat outside-very kind/customer service-oriented).We were prepared to offer generous tip to the server, knowing full well that ordering burgers would yield far less of a bill than steaks.Server was rude throughout our dining experience.We ordered sides/drinks from the regular menu. Food came and was GREAT. When we finished, we stated we would like fries, burgers and mac&cheese (more than 1/2 our meal left!)boxed "to enjoy for lunch."He threw it out then was rude to my fiancé, stating we should have said something if we wanted leftovers?We had.Will go back to S&W,only b/c of damage control manager Val then did."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Sat outside on the patio overlooking the boston tea party site, and people watched. Food was wonderful. Would have Liked the option of a smaller cut of filet -10 oz is too much. But it was wonderful. Expensive though."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We each got a filet and they were delicious. Very flavorful. I got the coffee and cocoa rub...excellent. The grilled asparagus and mac and cheese were generous portions and excellent as well. The outdoor dining was great, except for a little more wind than we expected. All-in-all, a great spot and great meal."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Some diners dislike loud, crowded, chain restaurants and I'm one of them. But when the food is as good as Smith & Wollensky's, it's worth adapting to the lively atmosphere. This NY-based steakhouse has expanded to other major cities, for good reason. My filet was seared to perfection and melted in my mouth. The service was impeccable. But for those of us who prefer a quieter dining experience, I suggest arriving about an hour before the kitchen closes. If the main dining area is closed at that point, the bar area has some nice tables by the window that aren't high-tops (and I've found the service is equally attentive)."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This new Smith and Wollensky location is the newest location and now I am able to say, I have dined at all S&W locations. I must say, I saved the best for last !!! Not that the other locations were bad, they were wonderful. They have the best steaks and shrimp bar none. Plus the service never disappoints. Thank you, Smith and Wollensky for the great food and great atmosphere. Plus Henry my waiter was the best !!!"

  • "A waiter spilled three glasses of ice water on our (adult) son. Shirt soaked and cold in the AC, he left for home. Manager Val Domnici was nice, recognized that our evening was ruined also because our son had to leave, and gave us our three dinners on the house. But he gave us no incentive to come back again. I told a manager at another restaurant about this and he said they should have given us a card for another dinner on them. As it is, we'll probably not go back."

  • "Pricey, but food was good. Bar menu more suitable if you bring kids."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The food was very good and service staff were extremely friendly. However, 1) the table for 8 was in a horrible, high traffic area, 2) the restuarant was uncomfortably hot 3) service was very slow."

  • "Real nice spot for lunch...great food and lively atmosphere on a nice day."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "While service at S&W is usually impeccable, we noted that our server spoke too quietly, especially for outdoor lunch dining, was not attentive to our empty glasses, did not ask how our meals were once they were delivered, and cleared my plate while I was still chewing (not asking if I was finished)! I chalk this up as a fluke because great service is one of the many reasons we keep coming back to S&W. Lunch salads were outstanding and the outdoor dining experience is always special."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I typically go to S&W 4 times a year and its always great. Steaks are outstanding. This time around, we ate outside and the 4 of us ordered Steaks (3 Rib eye bone in and 1 other). The 1 other was perfectly cooked (Medium Rare- Deep red, seered well). The 3 Rib Eye's were medium well, (We all ordered medium rare). I never do this, but for a 51 dollar steak, I decided to send it back (the 2 others followed). They were gracious on giving us a couple more sides and a BIG desert at the end (compliments). The 2nd round of Steaks were rare/medium rare. The cook missed the target this day. I thought someone should know, since Steaks are your thing."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Dined for lunch twice in one week (week of June 16th) and both times it took 35-40 to receive our meals, which was much longer than usual. Our lunch on second occassion was complimentary after asking waiter why the length of time to receive our meals, which we appreciated. Waiter was very frustrated with kitchen."

  • "We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary with long time friends. The food, drink and service were outstanding."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "While making my online reservation, I left a note that we were celebrating our anniversary. When we arrived, we were promptly seated at a table that had a Happy Anniversary card from the manager. Our waiter was very attentive, but never pushy, and he made us feel as if we were his only table, even though he was waiting on at least three others. At the end of our delicious meal, we were surprised when we were brought a complimentary dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a romantic evening."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Service was personal and professional. Seating,atmosphere, table was great. My husband did have to return his steak for undercooking, but they were gracious. I think the cook confused the 2 steaks that were ordered as the other one was a bit over cooked for that person. Anyways, we wed happy despite this."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The meat was of fine taste however it was rather cold when it arrived at my table. Probably it was laying around, after the grill, for some time in the kitchen. It was the same with the onion rings. The service was not very attentive."

  • "I frequent this restaurant regularly and it's usually 5 stars accross the board. This Sunday was a big graduation day accross the city for Colleges and High Schools. It was very busy and I noticed a slight lapse in service. Small stuff like taking away sides with 50% left and not asking if we wanted them wrapped to go. We did, and they threw them out. I assumed they were packaging them up. Again, most had enought to take home. Desert also arrived about 10 minutes ahead of the coffee, should be the other way around or simultaneous. There was also no offerring of fresh wipped cream to top the deserts which my kids love."

  • "What a great place for dinner. I can't speak to their lunch or bar dining experiences, but my family and I had a wonderful time. Be specific about how you want your steak cooked, if you order some, though. The only issue I had was that they didn't have one of the sides orders we wanted. The bartenders kept us occupied until our table was ready and were extremely nice. Overall, an awesome dining establishment."

  • "Made the reservation, requested a booth if possible. Upon arrival, friendly staff and we were escorted to our booth!! So happy. Waiter was fabulous - Zack. Helped us pick a delicious Pinot Noir with dinner. Shriimp coctail appetizers were amazing with our Prosecco. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, along with our sides. We had so much catching up to do, we talked the entire evening. No room for dessert. Zack didn't rush us or make us feel like we had to move on. Perfect evening. Definitely will go back. "

  • "Took seven of us for our son receiving his Master's Degree. Service was outstanding. Drinks and food were of the highest quality. We had one meal that was sent back twice. Thomas the Manager was on top of the situation and it was only a minor hiccup on a great celebration."
