A word from Wolfgang's Steak House - Times Square
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.

    This was my first time at Wolfgang's, a friend of mine has eaten there and he highly recommended it; he wasn't wrong. The food was exceptional, the service was wonderful and the restaurant itself is lovely. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meals and a wonderful evening was had by all. We were celebrating my birthday and the wait staff even sang to me when they brought out my dessert, that was an extra treat!!

  • Worst Steak House I've ever visited
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    After we sit on the table just on our reserved time, a group of about one hundred people visited the steak house. They started buffet, walking around the house just they like and our table was surrounded by a long buffet waitingline. This put us off from eating lunch, so decided to make payment but we are waited for half an hour. I never recommend this steak house to anyone but recommend Wolfgang to be closed for the private party in this kind of situation.

    It was my first time to visit Wolfgang's and it was good. Food was great, the ambience was good. I made a reservation but I had to wait about 30 minutes. It's not that common in my country but what should I do, just wait. I would like to recommend this restaurant to my freinds because of food. It was really good.

    This is a perfect place to have a quiet lunch (and a private conversation). The food is excellent - grilled shrimp salad, perfectly prepared and very tasty, served with fabulous breads. The tables are spaced so that, despite the fact that it was nearly full, we were able to have a quiet, private discussion. We will definitely return.

    Service was not attentive at all - aloof at best. My friend's steak was not cooked properly - had to be sent back - took extraordinarily long time for it to be returned, only when we asked where it was...then it arrive cold. We've been to other Wolfgang's - perhaps this location is more of a tourist trap?

    We have dined at this location numerous times......but the service was definitely off. Our group of four sat at the bar, we had a 4:30 pm reservation. My wife had had her tooth extracted and she desired some soft food. We had asked to see the bar menu since we were sitting at the bar. She had wanted to order the lobster salad, but the server at the bar had to check with the roaming manager who was on duty that evening. The bizarre answer that we told, was beyond our comprehension. We were told that the ingredients for the salad were kept in the level below in the building and that it was not possible to make the salad. It sounded like the kitchen & manager just could not be bothered with our request. It was lame at best.

    The meat was outstanding! Unfortunately the service wasn't as good as the food. The waiters did their best, but we simply had the impression that the didn't correspond to the high level of the food. It was all about details, but if you pay 50 dollars for a steak, you also look after details....

    Great steaks but the service was having a great time monkeying around with each other vs waiting on our table. We were a party of 7 and did not get asked for any refills in drinks the entire meal. We paid a lot of money and our expectation was a quieter place so one is able to converse at the table without the aide of a hearing aide for under 40s group and excellent service. I had to pay a 20% tip for poor service performance.

    The dry aged steak was absolutely phenomenal as we're the mashed potatoes.. They were so creamy. I would definitely go back to Wolfgang's but maybe the park ave or TriBeCa venue, Times Square was pretty busy after 6pm for a Monday night.

    The waiters are not the kindest persons. Then they want you to tip them on a good way. In my opinion Tip must be according to the service. I left less that 15%. Also a smoke smelling in the restaurant, also our clothes were smelling with BBQ smoke smelling.

    We visited for dinner while staying in NY this August. A family of 6 including children as young as 7. Great for the older guests, but a little more tricky to find options for the younger diners, although I must say what they eventually ordered they loved and all the food was cooked to perfection. Good, attentive service as well, and we really did feel looked after. Overall somewhere I'd recommend.

    I made a reservation for My Daughter's 24th Bday..her first time in New York and we were staying at the Hilton Time Square,so convenient for us. We get there,no one is there to attend to us.A waiter comes by and tells us we have to wait for manager.Manager comes by and takes us to a middle of the room table...Reservation said.."Celebrating B-day and please no middle of the room table,maybe side /private"...clearly NO ONE saw the reservation. I tell him that I want to sit down near the windows where I saw empty spaces...he did not like that and put us on a table that did not have "service" and told us plainly..."sit here" never saw him again..I told him, the original waiter and the current open about the birthday request.Waiter was the worst

    After reading several "mixed" reviews, we decided to try Wolfgang's for ourselves. We visited the Times Square location. We were pleased with our choice. While some reviewers had minor complaints, the wait staff was the wild card as they had been described as curt, rude and non-existent, among other things. Thankfully, we had none of those issues. Our waiter (Lenny) was excellent! While the portions were huge (don't fill up on the great breads!), the food (we both had the filet) was fantastic! We never felt rushed or neglected. Several of the wait staff were standing in opportune locations to be able to serve their guests and most were at their tables before being summoned. It was a great dining experience and we will go back.

    Wolfgang's Times Square -- and Wolfgang's Tribeca -- are my two favorite steakhouses in the world (including Peter Luger's). Food is excellent, service is friendly and indulgent, martinis are perfection. In decades of theatergoing, Wolfgang's is the best pre-theater option I've found.

    We had a party of 6 for our reservation. We were seated promptly. We had several appetizers, Shrimp cocktail, Caesar Salad and mixed green salad. There were raves about the Caesar Salad. The Shrimp were big and cooked very well. For the entree's we ordered the "Steak for 4" option along with a New York Strip and a Rib Eye. We also ordered just about all of the side dishes. The food came out quickly, which was nice since we were going to the theater. The 2 porterhouses were excellent. Cooked perfectly. The New York Strip was also very well cooked and seasoned. We also had the Chocolate Mousse Cake for dessert and it was fantastic. The fresh whipped cream was a nice touch as well. We enjoyed Wolfgang's very much and will be back.

    We normally eat at the location on Park Ave. and tried this location because of the access through Open Table. We were all in agreement that the atmosphere was much more open and lively. We didn't feel like we were eating dinner with the table next to us. The steak, as usual, was top notch! Best steak in NYC!

    If you have read my reviews, you know I'm tough, but fair. This was my 1st visit to Wolfgang’s. They have a great reputation, but it just didn’t make it for me. The steaks were cooked to the right temperature, but the huge amount of gristle was disturbing. We had their famous “German potatoes”. I can’t believe this is the same dish everyone else gets; incredibly salty, as if the salt shaker had accidently opened when they were seasoning them. On the plus side, the sautéed spinach was very good and the portion of Chilean Sea Bass that my guest had, (although poorly seasoned), was the biggest I’ve seen served in a restaurant. Our waiter, Artie, obviously had some place to go because he pressured us to settle up before we even had dessert.

    The steak, lamb, and mushrooms were amazing. Great service. When going, if you don't want to pay a fortune for water, be sure to specify "tap" water in a pitcher. If they bring a bottle, you will pay dearly for it. We got a shocker on our bill...for water. No other options given but sparkling or still. Other than that, it was a very pleasant experience overall.
