A word from Wolfgang's Steak House - 54th Street
With 4 decades of experience, Wolfgang Zwiener didn't duplicate an exceptional steakhouse, he improved on it to make Wolfgang's Steakhouse exceptional. The porterhouse steak for one, two, four or more, is an outstanding choice. The atmosphere, expanded menu & professional service will appeal to even the most exacting diners. Wolfgang's is pleased to add this location in the heart of Midtown East.

    Wolfgang's is my favorite steakhouse in Manhattan! My recommended meal: Bacon appetizer, Mozzarella & Tomato salad, Steak for 2 (or whatever the size of your party) with cream spinach and german potatoes. Delicious!

    It's one large, cavernous room with hard surfaces that make sounds resonate. Waiters are knowledgeable in a “rough & ready” way and slam dishes every chance they get so there's more the feel of an old fashioned deli than a high end steakhouse. Large tables add to the noise with the demographics tilted to 35 year old guys and large young families. This is no Peter Luger’s……………….but the food is……………..and if you can overlook (ok, tolerate) the rest of the experience, it has the makings of a good steak dinner. We are, however, still of the mind that if you want to go to Peter Luger’s go to Peter Luger’s. If you want a steak in Manhattan, think about Smith & Wollensky’s, Pietro’s, the Palm……….each of which is an original.

    I visited with my wife and parents for enjoying dry-aged beef steaks that are even famous in Japan. Needless to say the steak was excellent, but seafood was also nice (my mother wanted ones because she had some health concerns). Wolfgang's is the best choice for those who love either steak or seafood.

    My boss and I went out for a dinner - we go out after work once or twice a month to a steakhouse around the office (Park Ave) - and we both enjoyed the food/service/ambiance. The food was not only tasty but also plenty including the sides. I definitely recommend this restaurant to a steak lover.

    For a steakhouse, there was no choice of red wine by the glass other than "house wine" which came lukewarm I dont expect cellar temperature like fine bottle of wine, but really... After the ordered appetizer/main dishes arrived, waiter disappeared until he brought the bill

    Disappointing This was my first visit to the Lipstick Building location. The steaks were cooked properly but lacked flavor. Adding the special sauce, which tastes like the cocktail sauce you get with oysters in the half shell, didn't improve anything. The staff was courteous, but it was almost impossible to hear due to the crowd noise. I'll give them another try next time in town.

    We had dined at the TriBeCa Wolfgang's and wanted to try this uptown venue after the theater. The food was as delicious as we had downtown. The only down was that they did not have any bernaise sauce that day! No bernaise at a steakhouse? Crazy! The service was great and we had a wonderful meal.

    Exquisite steaks, a lively atmosphere and extensive wine list make this an enjoyable and high quality dining experience. Marginally detracting are waiters who, although brisk and efficient, laugh unduly at their own jokes and intrude too much. Next time guys keep it to yourself and get a better tip!

    There are a lot of Steak Places in NYC, I have been to all them. Wolfgang's is a step above all of them. Service is the best, The food is amazing. Totally what a Professional restaurant should be and presented in a seamless timely manner by a great wait staff. I can't say enough great things about Wolfgang's. I ate at the one on Park and 33rd and it was equal to the one on 54th St. They know what they are doing

    Atmosphere was nice. Very quiet for Lunch, not many people on a Wednesday afternoon. Food was not enjoyable. I brought clients to lunch here and asked them both how their meal was when we were in the cab ride and they both agreed that it was not the best and they would not go back. Service was very good.

    Dined on 7/15/2014
    First, we have never had steaks any better, absolutely delicious. The amount of food we got, was - by European standards - much too much, so that we could have ordered for one person instead of two. Many Americans, however, are much bigger / heavier than us Europeans, but then the waiter should let people know about the enormous quantity of food in advance... What really annoyed us was that the waiter when we payed openly complained about the amount of gratitude given. We already considered $ 25 a lot of money. All in all this experience spoiled the evening a bit, as we saw it. On the other hand, the atmosphere is very energetic, as pointed out above, so that this frank criticism of a waiter established a kind of wild west situation to us.

    We had eaten at the 34th Wolfgangs 6 months ago. We decided to go to the 54th street restaurant for a change of scenery and to bring our friends. We were very happy. Great ambiance and Wolfgang even came around to greet us. Nice surprise considering all the other restaurants this man owns.

    My wife joined me for a business trip and we made it a long weekend in NYC. This was a great steakhouse and the food & service were outstanding. We did the steak for two and had leftovers for another meal. We did traditional sides, mashed and spinach. The martini's were well done and service was prompt without being rushed. Well done.

    Wolfgang's was as expected a nice NYC Chop House. Dinner was well prepared and abundant. In fact, my recommendation would be to offer smaller size portions! As a visitor it is difficult to take home leftovers and we felt rather wasteful eating half a steak. Everything was very nice but in terms of a chop house I would recommend Quality Meats over Wolfgang's much more fun...

    Skip reading the menu and go for Steak for two, for three, for four...just great. Service was good, the air a bit thick due to the preparation of the steaks (however, the smell is triggering the Pavlov effect for sure) and it is a bit noisy...but these steaks are so good. You won't be disappointed by the size of them either.
