    My son and I celebrated his 14th birthday at Uncle Jacks. The room is so comfortable, yet it feels really special. The filet mignon was amazing, as was the bacon, the wedge salad and the macaroni and cheese. The wait staff is extremely professional, but also very friendly. It was the perfect experience for us both.

    So glad we found this restaurant for a Saturday brunch/lunch. We had a 2pm matinee at the theatre and we wanted to relax and have a nice meal before making it to the show. The service was the BEST ever for us!!! We had the brunch special of eggs with steak that included a cocktail, fruit, breads, and tea or coffee with the meal. Everything was delicious! We would highly recommend Uncle Jack's Steakhouse!!!

    The ad said it was the best steakhouse in NYC. I would not agree. First, we asked for a Gluten Free menu which was provided. When the orders were placed (Gluten free for my wife, regular for me) the orders came back both Gluten free. Bread was asked for and never received. My steak was cold and chewy. The sides were good. My wife ordered the tuna and it was OK. Both of us thought the value was lacking in this meal. The initial waiter seemed aloof and not interested in our being there. The service was just OK. I will not recommend this restaurant and will not return.

    After a long day after a convention, I was tired and very much underdressed, assuming it would make me feel uncomfortable in such a fine dining room. To my surprised, I was treated like a VIP from the moment I walked in the door. The Hostess was very kind and accommodating to myself and my guests. The wait staff was pleasant, cheery and admirably catered to our table. The food was OUTSTANDING! Absolutely amazing meal from start to finish. Turned a long day into a very enjoyable one! Thank you to everyone who works at Uncle Jack's - you were delightful!

    While the food and service was good, we had a large party with us and although we booked a reservation, we were given a strange alcove table that made conversation awkward and left elbow room scarce at best.

    Everything was excellent from the time we arrived till the time we left...The manager Kristen was excellent. In formed her it was my 40th birthday that is why we were visiting and she went out of her way to make sure we didn't leave without dessert or another round of drinks. Great personality. .companies needs people like her. Thanks to everyone that works at uncle jacks. Food was delicious the steak melts in your mouth and we had ours cooked extra well done and uncle jacks steak sauce is out of this world. .yummy. ..I can keep going but it's best if you try it on your own.

    Service was A+ from start to finish. Unfortunately my meal, which was a special, was not edible as it was as if the salt shaker was dumped into it, and the meat very tough and luke warm. The manager quickly offered me something else but I declined. They took the cost off from our bill. My husband's filet was also just mediocre. We have never had this happen here before. We were also treated to an exquisite anniversary dessert and champagne. We still will return.

    We went to Uncle Jack's for lunch before a Broadway Matinee on Sat. Willie's personality on the TV show drew us to this place but I must say it lived up to his standards. Impeccable service and attention to detail. Food was excellent. We would definitely try it again or one of his other NYC restaurants.

    I was entertaining out of country business clients so dining at one of NYC premier steakhouses was perfect. Service and food were exceptional. Was looking for a dining experience and was not rushed through dinner. Other tables were coming and going, but service staff was content on letting us dine at a leisurely pace. Even though I would entertain guests here again, it does come at a cost. We had several bottles of wine and after dinner drinks, which drove the expensive food costs even higher. Good experience and would recommend to others looking for a similar experience

    The worst steakhouse in NYC. Sparks prices with Bonanza quality. Waiter was rude. They worked hard to sell me on the lollipop lamp chops app over shrimp cocktail and it was just awful. We only went because it was close to MSG and we were headed to a concert. Steak was average at best- sides were large but flavorless. I will never go there again. Awful.

    I have had good meals here before, but the bone-in strip wasn't that great. It lacked favor and wasn't the best cut. The wine our waiter recommended was good and his service was excellent but a steak house has to have great steak and mine just wasn't.

We ordered drinks and wanted to wait a bit before we ordered our meal which they respected.The wait staff was very attentive and informed us of the specials. We ordered steak and it arrived exactly as ordered. The portions were quite good, and the sides were definitely enough for two people. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.

    Groupon had special menu. Great options and yummy food. However I felt like the unwanted step child. Took forever to get the meal. People who sat next to us and ordered off the main menu had wonderful dinners appetizers deserts and were long gone before we received our entree. Never received the desert. It came when we paid the check and were leaving. The manager apologized and comped a round of drinks but sitting from 500 til 830 and waiting waiting and service wait staff not caring was annoying.

    It was a delightful change up from our regular steakhouse. The wait staff was very friendly & helpful. We order wine that they no longer had, we chose another and they didn't have the vintage. We agreed on the newer one & it was great. The steak was cooked perfectly & the rest of the Mel was a nice experience. They have us a discount on the wine since it wasn't exactly what we ordered which was thoughtful.

    My husband and I went to the Midtown location this past Sunday. We got to the city an hour early but decided to go in anyway. We sat at the bar, had Martini's and ordered appetizers. The Bartender, Eric, was very personable, the drinks were perfect, and he advised us which appetizers would be best, since we had already seen the menu online and knew what we were going to order for dinner. When we were seated at out table (at the actual time of our reservation) the staff was knowledgeable and attentive, but not intrusive. Overall, we had a wonderful dining experience and would definitely go back again.
