Great job, Smith and Wolenskys!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks - nice atmosphereI really like their Colorado rib medium rare.
Desserts are great.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you're looking for greatIf you're looking for great service and amazing food, you've come to the right place. S&W dry ages their own beef and cooks it to perfection. The waiter sold me on the bone-in ribeye, and while that was way too much food for me, I ate every bite of it and would do it again! My husband had the filet mignon, and again, it was cooked exactly the way he ordered it and cleaned his plate. We shared the hashbrowns, a S&W specialty and if we had been able to finish them, we would have! A pleasant surprise for a side dish. Outstanding service topped off a great evening for us!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSmith and Wolensky is on theSmith and Wolensky is on the east side near the Waldorf Astoria hotel. It is easy to get to. Reservations were honored promptly. We had an excellent waiter who was jovial and willing to give his recommendations when he heard us discussing our choices. NY steakhouses can sometimes be very stuffy in regard to the service. This was not true here. We hAd been here previously for a wedding prediinner with a large group and they did a wonderful job with that as well.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSmith & Wollensky, PleasureOur waiter was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly without being intrusive. he was professional. we never felt rushed although we were booked for the very tail end of the lunch time hours. it was a lovely experience, the food was absolutely delicious. our special lunch at this noted gem did not disappoint.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe all enjoyed our meal.We all enjoyed our meal.

Large beefs and class wine. Wonderful! My only regret was that a large group had occupied the bar so we did not get the opportunity to have a drink there. We will make up for that next time...4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best place to eatOne of the best place to eat steak. If you think it's only hype, then go in and try it. The prices aren't as bad as I expected, it is pricy though. The meat was soo good that even microwaving the left overs for next night's dinner didn't get the meat any less yummy than the day before. For me, that's good quality meat.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding treat of the holidayVisitors from UK restaurant came recommended we can only affirm a truly outstanding meal. My partner an I both agreed the best ever steak meal we have ever had. We are now back in the UK we would love to make another visit not sure when? Thanks for a great meal and this topped off an altogether brilliant holiday ******4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb New York sirloin onSuperb New York sirloin on the bone. Excellent all round. The profiteroles with chocolate sauce were amazing. Yes, I will go back!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMYou'd be crazy to skip this mealDinner was extraordinary! We wished we had more room in our stomachs for more because we didn't want to stop eating. Of course it was a bit pricey but it was to be expected and worth every penny!!! The wait staff was so attentive and informative. We felt very welcomed and appreciated. In this economy where discretionary income isn't overflowing I felt we had a true value to the dinner and experience. Another added bonus, even with a full reservation book for the evening we were not rushed at all. We can't wait for another special occasion so we can go back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is fantastic. IThe food is fantastic. I had the best pea soup ever and the filet mignon was outstanding.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall good. Went after seeingOverall good. Went after seeing Food Network show.

Spicy, but not over the top. Corn chowder was rich and very flavorful.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI always try to go Smith &I always try to go Smith & Wollensky for their every semi-annual wine week especially on the last day Friday. At this lunch for the first time I had the S & W lobster cocktail it was superb better than the classic shrimp cocktail. I will be my choice again anytime in the future. I had the Cajun rib eye steak meduim-rare. The steak was cooked to perfection. I had the wild mushrooms and the baked potato, again another choice that; I will duplicate in the future.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMKnowledgeable staff, greatKnowledgeable staff, great wine list, foods cooked as ordered.
Overall - excellent3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSeemed more run-of-the-millSeemed more run-of-the-mill than special than it had in the past. Food was good, but the bloom is off the rose.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe filet mignon we had thisThe filet mignon we had this evening was not of this world! On of the best filets I ever had in my life - cooked to perfection and wonderful tasty. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Great place for dining out - no matter if you take your business partners, you family or your friends (like I did).3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food and serviceAlways great food and service but very noisy and very tight spacing of tables!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a steak place, I wishFor a steak place, I wish S&W had rib eye and porterhouse, but the bone-in sirloin was excellent. The calamari appetizer was exactly right, warm with a warm sauce. Our side dishes were generous, unlike many other places of this level. Wine week got off to a good start for us. The service was pleasant and professional.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply Awessome. Great Food,Simply Awessome. Great Food, Great Wine, Great Service.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Colorado rib eye is toThe Colorado rib eye is to die for. Sides are ok but dessert disappointing.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experience, deliciousAmazing experience, delicious food, and exceptional all-round service.1/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBeware of Restaurant Week "Deal"The $76 ($38x2) Restaurant week deal doubled to $150 quickly. I should have ordered from the regular menu. A glass of wine ($10), the 14oz Dry Aged Sirlion ($10) and a side of hashed browns along with 3 beers were the culprits. My friend enjoyed her Caesar Salad, Crab Cakes and the Coconut Layer Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream (it appeared everyone in the restaurant was getting that dessert). She noted that the salad was not overdone with excessive dressing. I had the Fried Calamari, the previously mentioned steak, the Chocolate Mousse Cake and the hashed browns. As to be expected, service was suberb, portions were generous and everything was cooked to perfection. This place is always busy which explains some of the tired looking decor.1/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Colorado rib eye is toThe Colorado rib eye is to die for but the sides and desserts were disappointing. Excellent service and wine selection. All in all a very enjoyable dining experience.
