The mushrooms and crunchy salty sweet potato fries are wonderful side dishes, too. We don't understand why anyone would go to this fabulous steakhouse and order chicken!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined at Uncle Jack's basedWe dined at Uncle Jack's based on the recommendation of friends who had been there the previous week and it even exceeded their recommendation. It was an early pre-theatre dinner, so the restaurant was not crowded and we had excellent service. My wife's filet mignon and my short ribs were both some of the best we've enjoyed anywhere. This was the last dinner on this trip to NYC and it was the best of the week.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMoutstanding serviceExcellent dining experience. Very friendly staff. Both beef and poultry dishes were delicious. Great caesar salad. Large enough for two. Good location too5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as usualMy third time here and it never disappoints. Great food, service. Went there for a birthday celebration, asked for and received a round table, free dessert for the birthday boy. Can't go wrong here. Go JACK.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat anniversary dinner!Made a small note at time of reservation that we're dining for our anniversary. As we got a little impatient waiting for the bill, our server brings over dessert and congratulated us on our anniversary! The manager also came over a few minute later to congratulate us. Small things like this always brings a customer back!
By the way, I work across the street and have had their burger lunch specials. Amazing every time!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceCelebrating several accomplishments in my daughter's life. She had a great time and felt very pampered. She said, "best food I ever had" Great Red Snapper and great Steak. Service was perfect.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectWe went there on Friday evening for dinner and it was great. Food and service! My wife liked her Lobster Bisque she wanted to go back Monday for lunch. We both ordered the Lobster Bisque. I have to agree with her and it is reasonably priced for what you get. FOr dinner we ate a table and had to people waiting on us. For lunch we ate at the bar and the bartender was great. This place is great and we will return every time we are in NYC!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMUncle Jack's was very nice.Uncle Jack's was very nice. The service and attentiveness was good. Our filets were served as ordered and were very good, although not the most tender filet I have ever experienced.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Experience!My husband and I were recently in NYC to celebrate my 55th birthday. We decided to go to Uncle Jack's because we totally enjoy Restaurant Stakeout. What a wonderful time we had! The service, ambience, and meal were exquisite! (We were even treated with complimentary champaigne and desert when they found out we were celebrating.) Can't wait for my next trip to the 'Big Apple' so I can take another 'bite' at Uncle Jack's!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMNY Theatre WeekendTrue Kobe beef is back in the US and it's fabulous at Uncle Jack's! The hubby and I treated ourselves to a late night dinner at this Trip Advisor recommended establishment and it was wonderful. Our waiter, Sean, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with the menu selections and offered a few personal touches to make our first time experience there one to not forget. The wine list is extensive with several nice offerings and not overwhelming at all. Don't miss the crab cakes! I couldn't decide if it was the quality of the crab or the amazing shrimp bisque like sauce that made the dish wonderful. Dinner service is well paced so you aren't rushed and there is adequate time to linger over dessert and post dinner drinks.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA classic American steakhouseA classic American steakhouse for when the carnivore in you has to come out. Don't be put off by the huge portions as the waitstaff is amenable to having you share just about anything. Pricey, but worth every penny.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had read that Uncle Jack'sWe had read that Uncle Jack's was the best steakhouse in NYC so we had to see for ourselves. I don't know if it was the best but it was certainly very good!! The food was delicious! From the bread basket to the chocolate souffle cake! We had the jumbo shrimp and crabcakes for appetizer. The most jumbo shrimp I have ever seen came out and it was very good. You could tell that it was fresh and it was presented very nicely. I wasnt too blown away by the crabcakes but they were still good. For dinner we had the filet, and order of surf and turf and the 'fred flintstone' and everything was superb!! The lobster that came with the surf and turf was so juicy and succulent! Best lobster I have had in a long time!! Great food and a very good time!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a reservation for 9:00pmWe had a reservation for 9:00pm and we weren't seated until 9:40. Walk in couple was seated before us. Service was good but I've had better at Ruth's Chris. Wait staff speed by what seemed like every two minutes inquiring.. "how is everything" often times interrupting our conversation. Creamed spinach was excellent, the crab cakes were good though I had a bit of shell in mine. The steak was good but list heat quickly and was slightly lacking in flavor compared to porterhouse at RC.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMtemp in the was warm upontemp in the was warm upon entering but after talking to server, a/c was put on....every else was PERFECT!!!! for my wife's Birthday!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent midtown steakhouseNeeded a spot in midtown so after watching the owners show in Food Network I had to try it. He practices what he preaches - service was outstanding. We started at the bar with cocktails - bartender was great - very pleasant and made sure we were taken care lf. All steaks were cooked perfectly and were very flavorful (10 & 16 oz filet, tomahawk rib chop and lamb chops). Our group ordered creamed spinach (awesome), mushrooms and the mashed potatoes (these were ok, nothing special). Nice wines - prices as expected for Manhattan. We were well taken care of by a team of waiters yet never felt rushed. So many NY steakhouses - I would put Uncle Jack's on my return list.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery accomodating to requestsVery accomodating to requests of customers. Willie Deigel always claims that "Customer is King" on his Food Network show. It was nice to see that this does show in his own restaurant.
Food was very good.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMy family & I had a terrificMy family & I had a terrific experience at Uncle Jacks. The Porterhouse was delicious and cooked to our liking as were the side items. The plate it was served on wasn't very hot and the meat cooled off by the time we got our the final pieces. The service was excellent as our waiter spent time explaining the menu, assisted my kids with their choices, and made everyone feel welcome and comfortable. The decor was very elegant and the wait staff in tuxedo's gave the feeling of a High-Class steak house. Worth the price.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and food!If you come here prepare to spend. This is no tads steak house. The service was great and so was the food. I have been to the uncle Jacks on bell blvd before and was equally satisfied all around. I dont mind spending the money as long as I keep getting the great service that my wife and I recieve here. Thank you William and keep up the great job!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSATNDING!!!!The Servers were incredible. I took my friend there for her birthday and the staff was just amazing!

One of my sons said her heard it had the best steaks in town - he might be right. The service was outstanding, very high class - but we were made to feel very comfortable. The food was great. Fine Caesar Salad. Tremendous steaks. Fine desserts. I will be back soon.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI would recommend this restaurantI would recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys excellent food, including the sides. I found the atmosphere to be excellent; entertaining yet still quiet enough to carry on a reasonable conversation without elevated voices. Menu is limited which I like as there is a good assortment without taking all day to find something. This is a steakhouse as advertized.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI enjoyed my dinner at UncleI enjoyed my dinner at Uncle Jacks Stealhouse. The service was over the top. The steam was delicious and cooked perfectly. The creamed spinach is the best I have tasted.

(sorry can't remember the name) the service would stand up to any scrutiny. professional, timely, fabulous food, awesome. on all accounts.. jeanne williams4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMService and staff were onService and staff were on the most part excellent. My wife and I ordered the NY Strip, hers medium well and mine rare. We ordered steak fries. The fries were terrible, charred on te bottom and overdone. Steaks arrived and as we were eating, we noticed I got the medium well and my wife got the medium rare. The waiter came over and I agreed to eat the medium well and my wife asked to have her steak cooked to medium well. It came back charred. No one asked if we were satisfied with the steaks. We were in a rush to see a show, so we ended up eating the steaks. My steak was flavorful but of course cooked too well for my liking. My wife felt hers was charred and in edible4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wait staff made the experienceThe wait staff made the experience very memorable for my family. The atmosphere was perfect. Not too formal. Very respectful. Very interactive. We will definitely go back. The quality of the steaks and the preparation were excellent. I can't say that it was a great value. It is on the expensive side. But, it is the best steak experience that I've had in New York City.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSussI was very impressed with the atmosphere and the service at Uncle Jacks. But I got a little dizzy reviewing the prices of a very limited menu. $55 fot his steak, $65 for another and steak for 2- $100?? Come on, please. I have no problem spending money, but not stupid. At least make the steak for 2 $99 so the 3 number thing doesn't put you into cartiac arrest.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was really glod! I seenIt was really glod! I seen bad reviews but i honestly dont,know how????? The servers managers and every single Worker in there were soooo attentive!! Its A+ its a 5 stars!!!! The steak its amzingly juicy and tender.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, service, atmosphereExcellent food, service, atmosphere, location...top notch all the way!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Easter Sunday BrunchThis was my first and only visit to a NYC Steakhouse. I have watched Restaurant Stakeout so had to try it! The location was right off of 5th avenue, which was closed due to the Easter Parade. Our party of 6 was seated on the railing on the 2nd floor and the setting was wonderful for our Easter Brunch. The decor was definitely lovely. Our waiter Costa was efficient and anticipated our every need. Our table sampled the Crab cakes benedict, avocado/lobster salad, caprese salad and steak and eggs. Everything tasted yummy and the service was impeccable. We will come back for the steak!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service; good foodOutstanding service and pretty setting. The food was good, but expensive for what you get. My husband's steak was over cooked (and had to be sent back) and my filet mignon was a little tough (and had been cooked medium-rare). The online menu lists several steak toppings that are available, but they are not listed on the restaunt menu, and the server said that they were not available. Additionally, I saw the manager eating a meal in the kitchen (which my seat had a view of) which I thought was a little odd.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved Uncle Jacks! WeWe loved Uncle Jacks! We will go back again the next time we are in NYC. Some may feel the price is high but it is worth every cent. It was probably the best steak I have ever eaten and the wait staff was impeccable!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great dining experience.We had a great dining experience. It started at the bar with drinks and an appetizer and continued in the upstairs dining room. The service was impeccable. My husband had a 10oz filet which he wasn't quite thrilled with but not enough to send back. I had surf & turf and it was delicious.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI was invited to the GrandI was invited to the Grand Opening of W. 56th Street. I decided to skip meeting football players and rubbing elbows and instead slept later that day. I've been coming back ever since the place opened; I've taken loved ones, friends and business associates over the years and they in turn have returned. I like it.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNice decor. KnowledgeableNice decor. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Food was very good. Would definitely return for a very special occasion.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA place to remember.This is the most amazing restaurant I have been to. Everyone was so nice and very attentive to all needs. Very romantic setting. I will be there again for every occasion. I took my wife for her birthday and they made her feel so special. I am very happy I came here. In addition, we love the show "restaurant stakeout". Thanks and see you soon3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and excellentExcellent service and excellent food. A little pricey but you're paying a fair price for the excellent food and service you get. Great for celebrating our anniversary.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMdelicious anniversary dinnerWe visited Uncle Jack's for our anniversary dinner. Our waiter could not have been better! He was nice and attentive; seemed as if he really enjoyed his job. We ordered the porterhouse for 2 and it was delicious. For sides we had creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes. Both very good but my husband thought they overdid the garlic in the potatoes just a bit. When the waiter heard it was our anniversary, he begged to let him take care of our dessert, but we declined since we were so full from dinner. We will definitely visit again!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a very enjoyable mealHad a very enjoyable meal upstairs on the 2nd floor. Looking forward to a return trip soon.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy entire group raved aboutMy entire group raved about the sustenance at Uncle Jacks! Everything was outstanding from the host allowing us extra time to make our reservation on a busy, St Patrick's Day weekend, to the food and wine, right down to the service and atmosphere. I cannot wait for my next visit to Uncle Jack's.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMUncle Jack's Lives Up To Its NameUncle Jack's is simply fantastic! The food was superb, but this restaurant absolutely shines with its service. I've never been treated better. There's a sign above the bar that reads; "The customer is king," and that's exactly how they treat you. We had a child with us who really didn't want anything off the menu, so we asked the Captain if it would be possible to get some kind of chicken fingers or something and he responded; "Sure, we'll make her anything she wants." When her food arrived, she not only had what she wanted, but they were easily the best chicken fingers she ever had. They looked like they were made from scratch with homemade breading that was seasoned just perfectly and the chicken breasts were awesome. Thanks guys!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent friendly service.Excellent friendly service. Staff well informed and helpful. Not obtrusive. A post matinee early dinner. Intimate and special.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had to wait a about 15We had to wait a about 15 - 20 minutes for our reservation. The restaurant was packed with people! The waitstaff was great with exception to having to wait a bit for a bottle of wine. They apologized and gave an extra dessert sampler. The food was really good just be aware all items can be shared they are so large!12/27/2012 12:00:00 AMMy only criticism about thisMy only criticism about this restaurant is that they do not have a written menu for their price fixe lunch. The food and service are great but without a paper menu ,you feel like you are less of a customer. They offer the price fixe but don't want everyone to know about it.12/19/2012 12:00:00 AM
