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.

  • great food; service tough
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/19/2014
    I have dined at multiple Wolfgangs throughout Manhattan. Always enjoyed great service and food. My experience at the Times Square location was tough. We had reservations for 3 people at 6pm. We arrrived on time and were not seated until after 7pm and no one seemed to care. When I asked the greeter several times, response was "yeah - wer'e double booked". There is a fine line between "busy" and simply chaos. I understand 20ish minutes delay, but not over 60 mins when you have reservations. The attitudes from the greeters were pleasant, but not helpful. Food and service at the tables was great as always, but I will never pick that location again.

    I have eaten here many times and have previously had good experiences. This time, the service staff were all very grumpy and inattentive. It seemed like the place doesn't care anymore. Food was ok, but my guest had to ask for water refills constantly, and the only attention paid to the table was to take our order, bring the food, clear the plates and bring the check. They do only these things at diners, but don't charge $80 for lunch.

    The sea bass and salmon entrees were perfectly flavored and grilled and the creamed spinach was terrific. The Caesar salad was also very good. The service was good except for the first waiter who seemed very duisinterested in his work. However, his co-waiters were great!

    We were not fast enough to order our food, so we were asked by the waiter if we wanted to buy the house. Funny thing is, the place was half empty on this Friday night anyway. We left straight away, not even finished our drinks.

    I've been to many steak houses. This wasn't good at all. The food was bland. No seasoning. Poor quality vegetables. Really over all a poor experience that I paid a lot for. I didn't even east more than couple of bites for my fillet. My waiter felt stressed about the questions I had on the menu. Menu was not descriptive. Just not good at all.

    Dined on 11/8/2014
    For a theater-district steak choice, I do like Wolfgang's. We ordered the steak medium-rare, which came out medium with parts well-done. That dropped my food rating. Our lead waiter was good, but his backups were bad (gruff and not on top of things, not gruff and on top of things like at Peter Luger), and it was a little annoying that there was an 18% gratuity automatically added in on a table of 4, especially when one of the people in our party ordered sea bass and the order wasn't put in until after our steak arrived.

    The food was outstanding, tastefull but the portions are way to big, sometimes less is more. We had the filet mignon, the quality was really good. The Cesars Salad excellent, Wolfgangs Salad excellent and the German Potaoes, Mashed Potatoes excellent. The waiter was friendly, but not very caring, he didn't even recognize that I sat there most of the time with an empty beerglas. When the bill came I was disapointet, because the tip was already on the bill, 51 $, the only choice of giving more tip. For that kind of Service I never would have tipped that much! At the reservation, I wrote that one of the guest has his 50th birthday. You would think they would response somehow to this, but no, very sad. The noise level is not accaptabele at all

    Had a booking for 8pm and it was only 8:30pm before we got a table - the front of house staff were not bothered in the slightest and kept saying 5 minutes which was irritating. Steak was not cooked to specification and had to be sent back. I always frequent top end steak houses in London (my home) and was bitterly disappointed with my Wolfgang experience. If a tourist - try somewhere else.

    I often dine alone when I travel to New York and it's always nice to go somewhere where you feel comfortable as a solo diner. The staff at Wolfgang's were the perfect combination of friendly and engaging without being overwhelming. The bar area is large enough to wait in but still intimate with a friendly bar staff. The food was excellent. The steak was perfectly prepared and the sauteed spinach was seasoned well but not overly so so that the fresh taste of the spinach still came through. I definitely intend to visit Wolfgang's on my next trip to New York.

    5pm very noisy with waiters setting up tables. Waiter forgot to put my husband's appetizer order in. My Steak was bloody and went back to the kitchen and came back well done instead of rare. Onion rings were soggy. Table water poured into my sparkling water. Not a good experience. Would not return.

    I ate at the Murray Hill location but the food was amazing. Three people, two had the porterhouse for 2, one had the Chilean Sea Bass. Side of mash potatoes, spinach and mozzarella & tomatoes. All was outstanding. Picked an inexpensive Malbec ($50) from the comprehensive wine list and was quite happy. The waiters are true pros.

    I know a service depends on individual not on restaurant, but I have to say the waiter who served us was really rude. My family visited to me from Japan and it was the final day we could stay in U.S. together, but we were really disappointed the discriminatory service by the waiter. We will never visit there again, the food was great though.

    We had crab cake and crab cocktail starters.... So much flavor! Had porterhouse steak for 2 which cooked to perfection.. One half medium and other medium to well done....mashed potato and portion of asparagus was plenty with it as large portions. Steak was best ever tasted....so much flavor and ticked the box for my pattner's birthday treat! Could not eat a dessert as too full!! Mr Wolfgang was in that night going round each table asking if you enjoyed the meal and was happy to stop for a photo with us as a souvenir! Great service... Friendly waiter who was helpful and did not badger you...we arrived 40mins before booking and was seated in 15 mins on a Saturday evening at 7pm.... Very busy all night....bit noisy but part of the character.

    We ate here last Saturday. Our food was delicious. My husband and I had the filet mignon and it was cooked exactly how we asked. The restaurant decor was beautiful. We were disappointed with our service. The waiter spoke very fast, was rude and made us feel incredibly rushed through our entire meal. Our food came out too fast; only five minutes after we ordered it. We ordered dessert just to make our experience a little longer than 35 minutes since we were paying $250. We were sat at a table next to the server station so my husband had a waiter standing next to his head the entire meal and was bumped on occasion. Our dinner was good but there are too many other choices in Times Square for us to return anytime soon.

    Wolfgang's in my opinion stands head and shoulders above all other steakhouse chains in the world and rivals any independent steakhouse that I've experienced. As Wolfgang's chain has expanded worldwide, its demand for meat appears to have diminished slightly the quality of the steaks it serves. They're not as buttery as they used to be. But their flavor remains unsurpassed, and Wolfgang's side dishes are impeccable. If I'm going to eat steak, I'd rather do so at a Wolfgang's steakhouse than anywhere else in the world.

    Although the kitchen forgot to make us mashed potatoes we ordered, the food was fabulous. A bit noisy because everyone was a bit too close together. I practically thought I was eating with the table next to me. The waiters(?) cooks(?) were so very kind and funny. Amazing dinner for my last night in New York.

    You name the steak house, I've been there. Having that said, this was my 1st time dining here and I found it to be just 'okay'. The restaurant doesn't have a cocktail menu, which seemed odd, and no wine menu was ever offered. I have to admit, the steak was DELICIOUS and cooked perfectly. The sides were okay but nothing special for the price. The service was HORRENDOUS! Our waiter was rude, not helpful and pretty much non-existent. We were getting frustrated with him so we actually timed him and it took us 17 minutes to find him to order a drink. The restaurant is very pretty but nothing to die for. For the price and considering all of the other top-notch steak houses in NYC, I would not recommend Wolfgangs.
