  • A Very nice business dinner

    Dined on 9/17/2014
    I was visiting town with two work colleagues who wanted steak. We had a drink at the bar prior to our reservation (very good service) and then were seated. Not too busy, a low noise level (so we were able to speak and enjoy our conversation). The calamari made a nice start and the filet was done to perfection (they even found a smaller one at our request (16 oz was just too big). Service was attentive without being intrusive. While not inexpensive, it was worth the price and we will go back on a future trip.

    This was my first visit recommended by a friend, I loved the decor it did not have that heavy steakhouse feel. We ordered the grilled calamari to start it was excellent, along with a fresh green salad, dressing was just the right amount along with a rib-eye, which turned out to be very good it was cooked perfect. They had a very nice wine list, so it was easy to find one that everyone liked. The service was great, with the food timed perfectly between courses. My next steakhouse meal with be at this restaurant!!

    The restaurant is nice, but it was pretty much empty when I went. Seemed like a restaurant that just opened. I ordered a medium rare rib-eye and it came out medium-well. Manager was nice enough to switch it but then the steak came out raw... I was really shocked with the food.

    I had to take my Boss, my biggest client and his son out to dinner before the Rangers game on monday night. My boss recomended another resteraunt that was not available time wise so a slew of other resteraunts were recomended to me. I had no idea that Staghorn would be that good when i chose it. The place was well kept and the service was top class from the front door until we left. I asked for a nice seating area and they had us set up in a private room where we were not in the open. It was a very low key part of the resteraunt and my client and his son loved it. My boss enjoyed it and told me it was a great pic. I would go back again and i highly recommend it.

  • Great find for a pre MSG event!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/9/2014
    Had never been here before and found it on open table as we were looking for a place close to MSG for a pre show dinner. Kudo's for them allowing us to arrive late as well. We hit traffic going in to the tunnel from NJ and I had called and said we would be 15 minutes late. Turns out we were 45 minutes late but they still sat us. I could tell our waiter was not pleased however and he was not very friendly. Other than that, the steak was very good. I'd say this place is a step below a Lugers, but still very good quality. Steaks were pricey but not out of line for NYC at all. We would go back again for sure.

    We had a corporate dinner here, for about 20 people, and not a single one of us was disappointed! The good was spectacular, the wait staff was excellent and it was just overall a fantastic experience. I was extremely impressed with the presentation of everything and was beyond satisfied with my restaurant selection. I highly recommend it! It's also a very close walk to penn station which was a plus

    Dined on 3/8/2014
    Having just ate at Ruth's Chris in Atlanta, the steak at Staghorn was not in the same class. I had the NY Strip and the meat was aged, but not as tender or bursting with flavor. I had to salt & pepper a few times. I tried the branded steak sauce and couldn't believe it! It was mostly shrimp cocktail sauce. My wife got the lamb and again, it wasn't bad, just nothing to write home about. Couple that with the significant prices and it will not be a place I would return to or recommend.

    Was heading to MSG for a concert. Wanted to try Keene's or Wolfgangs. No reservations. Looked on Open Table and found Staghorn could seat us right then and there. Walked down the street no knowing what to expect. What a nice surprise we had. Started off the bacon slices. Better than Peter Lugar's in my opinion. Shrimp were huge and tasty. Rib-eye steak was excellent and cooked to perfection. From start to finish an EXCELLENT choice. Got to the Garden in plenty of time for the show. Highly recommend.

    My girlfriend and I were very happy with our experience at Staghorn Steakhouse for Valentine's Day. In addition to the regular menu, the restaurant offered a reasonably-priced prix fixe option. The steak was among the best cuts I have had in New York, and tiramisu was delicious. The server and other staff were very attentive. In a neighborhood in New that does not have many great restaurants (the Fashion District), Staghorn really stands out. I would recommend to anyone!

    Food was great but I think restaurant suffers from location. On a Saturday our group of six were the only patrons in addition to a table of three. Granted it was a cold January night but when we walked to the restaurant the streets were bustling. Really wish the place the best of luck because it deserves to stick around but don't know how it will pull in the customers.

    Made a reservation to grab a bite before the theater. By the time we were seated we were afraid we wouldn't make the show. We moved to the bar and ordered apps. Which were delicious. Wasn't worth ordering a. $44 steak to eat quickly. Would try again when more time. But it is expensive.

    First, we waited for About 10 minutes at the non-crowded bar for a drink. Once seated, Our order was taken and that was the last we'd see of a waiter or anyone who wanted to assist us in our dining experience. Appetizers were dropped and cleared without words, no one "checked" on us, filled our waters or asked if we needed anything from the bar. Apps: Cesar salad was average, Lobster bisque was watery and simply tasted like seafood broth, salt helped. Dinner ran similarly. Dry aged rib eye was amazing, crab cakes were very salty and not made with lump crab ("special" meat instead?) Again, no one checked to see how our food was, or if our empty cocktail and water glasses (pushed to the side of the table) needed to be filled.Terrible service.

    This place was way too expensive for the quality of food. Also, my husband asked if anything came with his filet and he was told no, so he ordered a side item. Another member of our party did not ask, and did not order a side, however she received a side of broccoli with her filet complimentary. It made no sense whatsoever!

    It's off the beaten path for Manhattan, so it seems you can always find a table. The service was very good and attentive, and the restaurant had a nice ambience to it, but that was about all you would remember. The food, Ribeye and Stripsteak were good but not equal to other Steahhouses although the prices were equal. There were only 5 tables occupied on a Thursday evening, that was a first for me. Usually the NY Steakhouses and crowded every evening. I realize the restaurant is not ideally located, but there are many other restaurants that do very well on out of the way NY streets. To sum this restaurant up, go in a pinch but if you can go somewhere else.

    I dined here on my first night in New York and although it was a holiday weekend and the restauarant was very quite I could not fault the food or service and would definitely go there again. Even the noice from a weights gym next door - which I understand they are trying to get moved - did not spoil the dinner.

    I booked here because of all the great reviews. A party of three of us went on a Monday night and the place was EMPTY. We were there for 2 hours, from 6-8, and not another table sat the entire time we were there. As far as the food, it was average. I've been to dozens of steak restaurants in NYC and this one doesn't make anywhere near my top 10. It wasn't bad, but it was nothing special, especially when considering the prices. I won't be back as there are MANY other choices in the same area that are better.

    With a plethora of establishments to choose from in the neighborhood I would look elsewhere next time. As one of the few tables in the restaurant we felt as if we were forgotten by the staff. The music was not ambient so much as it was over powering and then of course there's the prime location next door to a gym where it would seem dropping weights is a matter of common practice. If you like to be ignored while being jarred by butterfingered meat heads next door this is the perfect place for you. Maybe better noise reduction and a better staff could pick things up a bit.

AFTER SERVING A BOTTLE OF WINE TO THE MEN IN OUR PARTY, BOTH WOMEN HAD TO ASK FOR A DRINK. THE WAITER NEVER ASKED IF WE WOULD LIKE A REFILL. HE DID HOWEVER, COME OVER PERIODICALLY AND SERVE THE MEN THEIR WINE UNTIL THE BOTTLE WAS EMPTY. WE ALSO HAD TO WAIT ALMOST 45 MINUTES FOR OUR FOOD,WHILE OTHERS WHO ORDERED AFTER US WERE SERVED BEFORE US. I PICKED THIS RESTRAUNT FOR MY FRIENDS BECAUSE I HAD BEEN THERE BEFORE AND THE SERVICE (WITH A DIFFERENT WAIT STAFF) AND FOOD WERE EXCELLENT. I ALSO FOUND OUT THAT THE MEAL I PAID 34.99 FOR ON THURSDAY WAS NOW 46.99 ON FRIDAY.

    Everything we ordered was very good. The Staghorn salad was surprisingly good, based on description it could have gone either way. Wine list not that big and pricing is all over the place, some wines were under priced while others over-priced (compared to market rate), but overall just what I expect from a steak house. Veal chop and lamb chops cooked perfectly, great cuts of meat. Sides were uninspired but fine.
