    The steaks are excellent and the wine choices well matched. The sides were quite tasty, and I especially enjoyed the asparagus. The shrip scampi was well cooked and had nice flavor. Bread was fresh. The mixed green salad was not special.

    We were looking for a great place to eat around the corner from our apartment in Times Sq. West Side Steakhouse in Hell's kitchen didn't fail on any level, the food was great, my two sons shared a porterhouse for 2 and said it was amazing! I have had steak in South Africa, Australia, Korea, Europe and agree with them both! I'd recommend visiting this restaurant anytime.

    Steaks were cooked to perfection, service was very good. We were celebrating my daughter's move to NYC and our experience here simply added to the event. Would recommend for a good, well priced (for NYC) meal. Lived up to trip advisors review and open table reservations were wonderful, first time I used it - worked well.

    This is my 5th or 6th time here, and I am always so pleased with the food, service and overall quality of this little gem of a place. Hey, there are a lot of steakhouses in NYC, but West Side Steakhouse is the best value by far AND everyone I have taken there insist on going back again. I cannot recommend this place enough. There is also more than just steak: They have great appetizers, incredible seafood, the pork chop and lamb chops are amazing. Of course if I keep it up, I will never get a table! GO!!! TRY!! ENJOY! You won't be disappointed.

    I had the T Bone Steak which was under cooked, even though I requested Medium Rare. The Creamed Spinach was very good as was the Grilled Asparagus. Mashed Potatoes are mashed potatoes so, you really can't mess them up too much. I would recommend the Molton Chocolate Cake with the Vanilla Ice Cream. Very, very good.

    This was our second visit to West Side Steakhouse, and also the second time we ordered the porterhouse for two. The steak was outstanding. The sides are also very good, and more importantly, normal-sized, so you can try a few! The service is very good, and they have an interesting beer selection for beer lovers. We look forward to our third visit.

    We were looking for a steakhouse that was not the "5-star, really expensive" kind of place. Found this on trip advisor and booked through open table. Probably would have missed it without directions. Wait staff was very attentive. Food was amazing. Price was good for a steakhouse. Would recommend to anyone.

    I was looking for a steakhouse taste and feel without the huge steakhouse price tag. Westside Steakhouse was perfect. Enjoyed the delicious ribeye with blue cheese crust...done to perfection. Scallops appetizer also tasty and cooked to perfection. Would definitely return and already told friends and family about it!

    I always go here when I want to meet up with friends for a proper, but not too expensive dinner near midtown. It's not too noisy, so you can have a decent conversation. The staff are very friendly, and for the location, it's not very expensive! (That said, $5.50 for a tiny side dish of fries is a bit cheeky). The cuts of meat are always good quality, and good value for money - Though, the last time I was there, what constituted 'medium' and 'medium well' seemed to be up for debate. All in all, well worth a visit.

    Upon our arrival we were pleased that it was not a large restaurant. It had a family feel to it. The waitress was very nice and helpful. The service was very good. The food was just OK. Had the fried calamari and slab bacon for appretizers. The calalmari was average, but the slab bacon was very tasty. Our rib eye's arrived along with our sides. Steaks were prepared perfectly but weren't as tasty as I have had at other steak houses. The mac and cheese tasted like a boxed brand. The garlic mashed potatoes were pretty good. The sauteed spinach was not bad but I found the portion to be small. As I left the men's room the employees were eating at a table in the back and the size of their portion was what I expected ours to be.

    My husband ordered the T-bone steak, I had the filet mignon & shrimp scampi. We shared three sides: asparagus, onions, mushrooms. Everything we ordered was great. The best of everything was the shrimp scampi - best shrimp I've ever had. For dessert I had the banana-chocolate chip cheesecake- fantastic. My husband had the apple pie and apparently it was only "meh". Very expensive food compared to "back home", but compared to other steak restaurants in the area, not bad at all. Service was great. Took a bit for our waitress to warm up to us, but once she did, she was very nice.

    My favorite steak house in NYC. The Ribeye has the bone in. This is the house specialty and you can't go wrong. It is not over run with out of towners. Good drinks, and the wait staff are really nice. If I owned a steak house it would be just like this. If you want to spend more money there are lots of options. To me this is the best value!!

    Im not sure how to feel about this place. I guess if you're a fan of bland seafood then i guess you'd enjoy. Im pretty sure they just cracked the lobster tail open and put it on my plate as is. The shrimp was ok in the sauce it was placed in, but it had a little too much lemon on it (atleast i hope the sour taste was lemon? :-/) and lets not forget the extra bits of dry food on our drinking glasses. Like really, who wouldn't notice that??? I DID enjoy the slab of bacon though. Its virtually impossible to mess up bacon

    Our dinner was very good. We started with the Bacon Appetizer (Must Have), shared the Cesar salad (very good but would have liked to have been offered fresh Parmesan and or pepper), had the petite filet and the ribeye. Very good steaks and cooked very well. We shared the sauteed spinach, garlic mashed potatoes and the sauteed mushrooms. Again, food was excellent...the service was slow, not attentive and lacked much character and often looked confused at times.

    We had a conference at the Javitts Centre and a party nearby, so I had to find a dinner location in an area I haven't been to before. I used Urbanspoon to help me, and I was NOT disappointed! The reviews did not lie, and we were so impressed! The service was excellent, the food was perfect, and the prices were so reasonable it was unbelievable!

Excellent cuts of meat and sides are great. Nice beer and wine menu as well. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Will be going back again soon.

    This restaurant is truly a treat and with all of the "great" steakhouses in NYC, it is great to have one that is focused on the food and not so much about it's reputation, name, and star-attraction quality. This is my third visit and the food is simply superb --the finest steaks, chops and seafood anywhere and top it all off --it's reasonably priced. Plus, they had the best pecan pie I have tasted since Grandma's. Highly recommend going and enjoying!

    When I decided to take my friend to West Side Steak House, it was all off of a whim. I yelped an unpretentious steakhouse and found this place. The space looked cozy and the dim lighting set up the scene for a great dinner. When I saw that you would have to make reservations, I had a feeling the place would be a bit swanky. Nevertheless, I made my reservation for 9pm. When we arrived, we were quickly seated. I noticed a few eyes shifting. I forgot to mention I am African American and so are my friends :/. In the reviews of this place, it said the manager was really kind to new comers, where as he did not even acknowledge us until he saw the $40 dollar tip we left for a lackluster waitress. I could be paranoid but I didn't feel very welcomed

    Best steak I have had in Manhattan. And I have had quite a few. Plus the price is surprisingly reasonable. Full 12oz filet at $29. Cooked correctly. Fantastic taste. 3 of us, all had steaks, all cooked correct. Dinner rolls are simple, but the way I like them - with a great crust. Baked potato as you'd expect it. 2 appetizers, shrimp cocktail, and liver. I don't eat liver but I was told it was excellent. Two big ice cream scoops of it for $12! Shrimp was larger than most midtown restaurants, 3 pieces for $12. Beer at $7. But you need to make reservations! Don't just show unless you want to sit at the bar. Or maybe sit at the bar. We were there on a Tuesday night and it was packed. Don't miss out!

    The food was pretty good, we had a rib eye steak medium rare, but it came out more medium and cooked that we would have liked. The steak still was good quality and tasted good. The service was mediocre and was not very attentive. The waiter came once to take your order, once to give you the food, and once to give you the bill. There were no recommendations and when we asked about the food they didn't really know.
