Diner Reviews
  • "Hands down, the best service I have ever experienced. Ambience was great. Always good to find a restaurant in NYC that isn't ridiculously loud. Food was great. Had a four course pre fixe and every dish was delicious. Definitely recommend."

  • "From the moment we walked in the door my niece and I felt special. The surroundings offered great comfort in preparing us for the meal to come. The service could not have been better and I would give it 10 stars if I could. Both our head waiter and his assistant took the time to talk with us and get to know us. The head man knew when I wanted or needed something even before I did. That is impressive. Fantastic job peeps! I wanted to show my niece a little about fine dinning in the big apple and she left with an experience of a lifetime to share with all her North Carolina friends. Thank you Uncle Jack's, I could not have been more pleased."

  • "It was AMAZING! The bone in Ribeye was the best I've ever had, my whole 2lb lobster was cooked perfectly! My husband ordered truffle on his steak & it had no taste. The manager tried telling us that summer truffles have very little taste. True, winter truffle do in fact have a stronger flavor, but summer truffle definitely has "taste".... they took it back & told us the chef wasn't impressed with the truffle either. I as a Steakhouse manager would've taken it back & apologized with no "excuse". It didn't make a difference, the service & food were spectacular. I was very impressed with Elva, very attentive. Uncle Jacks is a winner and a definite favorite for us and will return..."

  • "I have been to Jack's 3 times. Always good. The service is friendly. The only problem was it was a 95 degree day in NYC and the place was hot. It is pricey, but I would recommend it to anyone!"

  • "Friendly but food was not great. food was very salty we had to cancel our dish and go some place else."

  • "Food OK, but one of the worst service experiences ever. We waited 40 minutes for the bread basket and never got our side orders. Late for theater as a result. Charged for things we didn't have and then threatened by the manager when we complained. Bad service can happen, but there is no excuse for a surly response. There were 6 of us, and we will never go back or recommend."

  • "Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our lunch dining experience at Uncle Jack's. Not at all crowded at 11:30 AM on a Monday. Comfortable, quiet atmosphere. Pleasant, accommodating server. Lobster bisque was delicious. Melt in your mouth Kobe beef meat loaf is unlike any other. Our server recommended the french dip sandwiches which were excellent. I arrived craving a burger and the Big Jack with blue cheese hit the spot. We were pleasantly surprised when our server presented us with a complimentary bottle of Uncle Jack's BBQ sauce and an autographed poster of William "Jack" Degel. We look forward to returning for dinner on a future visit to New York."

  • "We went for dinner on my birthday with another couple, my husband and I had been there before, but they hadn't. We each had a Groupon (which was a great deal, and I snapped up as soon as I saw it offered) We were a little concerned that our waiter would be annoyed that a table of 4 would fail to be a money maker for him, and we would receive poor service. I couldn't be more wrong, our waiter was great! He was attentive and had a great personality. The food was fantastic! Steaks cooked perfectly, sides delicious! We will definitely go back!!"

  • "Impeccable service; steaks need more seasoning and the cooking was a little uneven; side dishes a little small, deserts were very good; need a little better pour on the wine."

  • "FOR ALL THE STEAK HOUSES I HAVE BEEN IN NYC THIS IS FAR THE WORST !!!!

  • "First time was a charm, definitely. Went with a groupon before concert at the Garden, and was very nicely surprised. The décor was terrific, service was terrific (even though they were very busy), food was even better. Can't wait to go again. Next trip to Garden, this will be our go to place to dinner. Enjoy everyone!"

  • "I was meeting friends before a concert at the Garden, and picked this restaurant based on OpenTable reviews. The interior is classic steak house with a nice bar, and the food was outstanding. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but the food was brilliantly prepared, and is definitely worth a shot."

  • "We learned about Uncle Jack's through watching Restaurant Stakeout. Willy definitely practices what he preaches. The food was fantastic - steak was absolutely incredible as were the sides. The *only* critique I have is the steamed broccoli was a little lackluster (i.e., not seasoned and not steamed quite enough), but still very good. The server was friendly, but not overly engaged with our table. We overheard a neighboring table complain to management about something they were served and it was handled extremely well by the server and manager."

  • "We are not sure if our servicer was rude because we had a Groupon....or if that is just his normal arrogance. The food was only so so. All our steaks were dry and overcooked. We had ordered medium well. But the meat was so dry and chewy. This place has the ability to be 5 star but our experience only gave them a 3 star rating."

  • "Used a groupon to eat. Fantastic deal for a wonderful meal. Food was excellent, service was great. We were never made to feel "less deserving" because of the coupon. I like steak well done and often have a hard time getting it that way. The chef had no problem butter flying my filet and serving a perfectly well done steak."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The prime rib was great. Quality of beef was very good and one of the best cuts I've had. However, it was a tad overdone and not quite medium rare like we asked for. Having said that, it still tasted really good. Service was mixed... one waiter was really really good and the other was pretty bad, so I'm glad the latter ignored us most of the night."

  • "My son & I have an annual Father's Day lunch at a top ny steak house. This years stop was uncle jack's, and was not disappointed. Outstanding service, classy but not snotty; attentive but not annoying; helpful but not pushy. On to the food. Tomato & Mozz salad, the best I had. Mozz was so fresh, creamy and tasty. Shrimp cocktail were huge, meaty, fresh and delicious. Porterhouse steak for 2 cooked perfectly, came out sliced, hot and full of taste. Other then Luger's, steak as good as any top 10 I have been too. Steak fries and onion rings were also in a class by themselves, hot, crispy, perfectly salted. Was too full for desert, but A-1 from start to finish."

  • "Fans of Restaurant Stakeout we were interested in seeing if Willie's own restaurant stands up to the example he talks about on the show. I must say I was surprised and pleased that he is no B...S....! The service was highly professional and attentive but not intrusive and the food was excellent from appetizers to desert - a home run! We were at the 9th avenue location and the place was smaller than I expected and the entrance small and crowded and bar is adjacent to the dining area and can be quite noisy - but it was a Rangers playoff night. All in all, since we came for the dining experience, restaurants would be well advised to adopt his service and quality standards."

  • "Went to Uncle Jacks as my family loves steak. The steaks were OK--not great. Sides were not memorable. Salads were not good (ceasar salad was terrible) The crabcake appetizer was bready. Very expensive for "just ok" food. There are MANY better steakhouses in manhattan."

  • "Treated like second class citizen for using a groupon. Waiter was beyond condescending and when we finally complained the "manager" didn't even take us seriously. The waiter/sommelier talked about us to other staff and the food was subpar and not cooked as ordered at all. Horrible, horrible, horrible. "

  • "At a recent brunch, my crab cake benedict was good, though nothing to rave about. My wife's steak and eggs, ordered medium rare and over, came with the steak overcooked and the eggs undercooked. She pointed out the well done meat to our suavely professional waiter, and he offered to bring her another. She declined, and the price of her meal was deducted from the check. We couldn't have asked for a better recovery -- but nothing about our meal makes us eager to return."
