    The food at Uncle jack's was amazing. I had the Filet Mignon and it was simply perfect! My side was Brussels Sprouts, and they were also very good. I shared some of my son's Lobster Macaroni and Cheese and then wished I had ordered that as well! Desert was also fantastic, I had the Apple Strudel with vanilla ice cream, which was very good, and was able to sample the Creme Brule' and it was delicious. Service was excellent. We had made reservations, and arrived a few minutes early, were given seats at the bar and our table was ready right on time. Overall a really great experience, well worth the price!

    The porterhouse steak is as good as anywhere, the mushroom, spinach and brussels sprouts are better than most. The service was perfect--attentive; but, not hovering.

    My wife and I both had the 16 0z. filet mignon and it was big, tasty and cooked to perfection. The side dishes of asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes were also perfectly prepared and the Italian, onion and raisin bread that was given to us both before and during the meal was warm and very good. My wife loved the crab cake appetizer and my caesar salad was also very good. For desert we had the chocolate soufflé cake and NY cheese cake. The soufflé cake was "out of this world" but I was not crazy about the cheese cake. It did not have the texture that I like. I like my cheese cake more on the "cakey" side. Overall it was a terrific meal and I would recommend the restaurant to anyone who would like a really good meal at a decent price. Growing up my father owned a meat market/grocery store in Connecticut. I grew up eating quality meat and steaks and I know a good steak when I see it. I can tell you that at Uncle Jack's I had one of the best steak dinners I have ever had. Therefore, I would like to give a "shout out" to Willie Degel who's show we enjoy watching on TV. Willie, you did not disappoint. The meal my wife and I had was really good and the waiter and staff were attentive through out the meal. We certainly will be back again!

    Nice old style steakhouse . Quick and polite service. Sometimes even felt a bit too much service . Waiters constantly asking if everything was ok got slightly annoying. However , food was pretty good and we were able to get back to our meeting on time . This is based on dinner around 6:00 pm on weekend.

    A few weeks ago I met a friend at Uncle Jack's just for a drink before we went on to walk the Highline but I wanted to come back for dinner and I'm glad I did on Friday night. We sat upstairs and it was just perfect, not noisy and very beautiful atmosphere. The food was great although my friend did have to send her baked potato back once because it was too hard but other than that it was perfect. I would highly recommend. Oh and great Happy Hour at the bar too!!

    Have ben here a few times as it is one of the closest restaurants to the Javitz center. Never disappoints, everything from great steaks to salads and sandwiches. Service is always top notch and the food is fantastic. Whether you the suit and tie crowd or the biz casual you'll feel right at home.

    My husband and I were headed to a concert at Hammerstein and I wanted a restaurant close to that venue. We gave Uncle Jacks a try and it was great! Thr service was quick but not rushed. The food and drinks were delicious. We started with the tomato and mozzarella salad which I really liked. We both had steaks which were cooked perfectly. A side of maple glazed bacon macaroni and cheese and perfectly cooked asparagus. My husband had the best bloody Mary he has ever tasted and I had a glass of really nice moscato.

    It has been awhile since I returned to Uncle Jack's Steakhouse & it was a Fabulous Lunch celebrating a Friend's birthday. I selected an amazing Napa Valley Cab - Hourglass which was Fab! Caesar Salad to start, Filet Mignon & Lobster Tail with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, mashed Sweet Potatoes with Asparagus were Delicious; we had expresso, cappuccino with Apple strudel that was perfect! Looking forward to returning soon!

    In an otherwise more or less culinary desert on 9th Ave and 34th Street, Uncle Jacks' stands out as one of the very much better steakhouses in the city. It might not be the very best but it is well up there with the very best. The meat is very good indeed, the service is attentive to the point of excellence, the prices, which in some steakhouses have reached stratospheric heights, are reasonable for the excellent quality. The food is cooked to the right degree and the sides are excellent too. The wine list has some affordable bottles as well as reasonable wines by the glass. OK you might have to 'trek' to 9th Avenue but the 'trek' is worth it. It can get a bit crowded and noisy but that could be said about just about every restaurant.

    What an awesome restaurant. The food was amazing. I got the surf and turf with the filet mignon and lobster tail. Both were one of the best I have ever had. The sautéed asparagus was just as good. My wife usually complains about something at every restaurant we go to. Nothing but nice things to say this time from her. We will certainly be back.

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!

    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!
