A word from Wolfgang's Steakhouse - Tribeca
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 downtown TriBeCa.

    The dinner was superb and service started out excellent - until time to pay. The internet was down and it took an hour to pay the bill. The staff apologized but should have out of courtesy sent drinks to the table.

    Food was on par with any other steakhouse for this price, but the service was disappointing. The waiter was generally rude and condescending and did not take any time to walk through the menu or any options. Overall good, not great.

    Wolfgang is a restaurant I visit every time I am in NYC. We love the wonderful meat (steak for 2 is our favorite) and we never skip the fresh tomatoes with mozzarella cheese, German potato, and Onion rings. This is our favorite in NYC.

    If you go to Wolfgangs than you go there for the meat. The porterhouse for 2, 3 or 4 is just wonderful. The service is always professional and if you happen to come from Europe you will most likely have a waiter from the same continent. It's hard to say, if Wolfgang's as good as the original in Brookline, but at least it comes pretty close to Peter Luger. The TriBeCa branch is very nice and a little bit more spacious than the Mid-Town venue at 33rd Street.

  • Best Steak in Manhattan
    jonweiswVIP
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    As a connoisseur of steak, and always trying to find the absolute best in Manhattan, Wolfgang's has consistently proven itself to me as the absolute best steakhouse on the island. With a nod to Peter Luger's, the gold standard by which all high-quality steakhouses are (rightfully) judges, Wolfgang's is on par. The steak is the best Ive had - ever. My wife (oddly, a vegetarian) loves Wolfgang's equally for their accommodating her dietary needs. The service is impeccable. The ambiance energetic at times, but never obnoxiously loud. Out of the three locations in the city, we prefer the TriBeCa one; the Time Square one, while not as hip, is a good spot near the theater district.

    As most already know, this Peter Luger's progeny was the first in a long list of steakhouses that were started by former Luger's staffers. Wolfgang's is still the best of the bunch/ The legend is that Wolfgang was the former head waiter at Peter Luger. I don't know if that's true or not. And really, who cares, it make for a nice story. Steaks, onion rolls, bacon and shrimp as close to the original as you're going to find. Attentive service without the annoying schtick you get from the staff at Lugers. And they take credit cards. What more can you ask for. If you can't get to Williamsburg, Wolfgang's holds its own quite nicely thank you.

    I've been to Wolfgang's about a half dozen times. Four of us who love fine steak and the ambience of a TRUE NYC STEAKHOUSE get together for a steak dinner each year. We have eaten at most all of the famous steakhouses in NYC, which I will not name, over the years, but 4 years ago we tried Wolfgang's. It has now become our "GO TO" place for our "Steak Club" dinners. The quality of the meat is second to none, anywhere; the sides are prepared with a meticulous hand and experienced seasoning, and the bacon appetizer is done precisely the way that it should be! Whenever you visit Wolfgang's in Tribeca, it is ALWAYS SUPERB!!

    Excellent steakhouse, one of the best in NY because of the meat quality. However, even if the inside is tender, the appearance of the meat is not appealing as too dark! No good for kids neither.

    Terrific restaurant - wonderful food, good service - A few small things to improve : we were kept waiting at the door for 5 minutes as we needed to be shown to our table apparently by the captain - who was not around - surely the hostess should have been allowd to take us to our table. A screaming baby at 9pm at night was quite annoying - I guess nothing can be done about this

    My friends told me to go there because the meat was good. They were wrong. Itz was so much better than just good. I am still looking for the right words to describe how the filet mignon was, because "awesome" is just not enough! I would suggest the "Wolfgangs Salad" as a starter. But be warned: the portions are huge, so better go there really hungry.

  • Too many mistakes...
    DuckDinerstyVIP
    Dined on 6/24/2014
    There were five of us for dinner on a Tuesday evening - two Rib Eye steaks arrived not cooked as ordered and the Sauteed Spinach came with pieces of cellophane/tape cooked in! Two Filets and a Sea Bass didn't fare much better review from their respective diners. Service was inattentive, with significant lapses -- which I would attribute somewhat as well to a lack of our waiter's communication skills. Overall, with the exception of the slab of Canadian bacon that I requested on my Caesar Salad, and the Onion Rings, this meal proved to be a unanimous disappointment all around the table. Wolfgang's Steak House is no longer on our recommended list of restaurants. Don't make the same mistake - we suggest you go elsewhere.

    We ordered the steak for four. It was well cooked to our liking. There was plenty to around. The broccoli and the asparagus were wonderful. Very tasty. The sauteed onions were great. It was plenty of that to go around. The baked potato was huge. A salmon dish was ordered, which I was told was excellent - very tasty. It was a lot of food that we took home a doggie bag and dessert. I also enjoyed the wine very much.

    I love this place. I've read a lot of reviews about this place about it's noise level--but I think it's part to it's charm! You can't have big slabs of meat and not talk like MEN! Lol I the Canadian bacon is a must try! They serve it freshly cooked from the grill straight to your plates. Yum! My boyfriend and I ordered steak for 2 cooked medium ---and it was perfect! Not to mention their creamed spinach and key line pie!

    I totally understand that a restaurant can get busy at times, but this has to have been the fifth time where I had a reservation and the restaurant was not even close to having available seats even after an hour of waiting. The frustrating part was that the hostess was seating walk ins before us and never bothered to give us an update on how long the wait would be. I'm switching my new go to steak house to Benjamin's where they actually honor reservations, do not overbook and seat you promptly. I doubt a restaurant would honor your reservation if you show up an hour late, why is it acceptable for them to seat you over an hour after your reservation time?

    Me and my husband frequent steak houses. I ordered the filet mignon medium well for $49.99. When the steak came it arrived butterflied ( I did not order it butterflied nor was I told it would be cooked this way). The steak was dry and tasteless. When I called over the waiter and told him that the steak didn't taste like anything, he rudely said thats bc its butterflied and it dries out the steak. I replied I didnt order it butterflied...he said, well in order to get it to cook that temperature in under an hour it has to be butterflied which dries it out and continued to give me a steak cooking lesson...that is good, being if I had asked it to be butterflied, or he informed me that it would be cooked that way previously. VERY RUDE!

    Capital letters are all I can use to describe the tastiness, tenderness, juciness, luciousness of the Porterhouse steak for 2 that 3 of us devoured (with a little trouble, I might add - it was so large!). Waitstaff was wonderful - informative, not at all pretentious as some reviews had noted. Creamed spinach was a little sweet; should have ordered the potatoes! Caesar salad was yummy - crisp and fresh! Pricey, but well worth it for a special occasion. You get what you pay for!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    Food was great. Sour note: we wanted to try the bacon appetizer and ordered one. Waiter said that's three slices, we said o.k since we were not familiar with the restaurant, thought it was a generous serving, weren't that wild about it and didn't finish. Turns out it was not generous, when we got the bill, we were charged for three orders, not one as we wanted, so we paid $12+ bucks extra! Lesson learned: ask questions to avoid unpleasant surprises!

    Here to celebrate my steak loving boyfriend birthday. Greeted warmly and sat right down. Our waiter was fantastic. Personable and friendly. Steered us towards all the right things. I had crab salad which was beyond sweet and delicious. Boyfriend had bacon and steak. I had the biggest piece of salmon I ever had. Delicious grilled onions (enough for 4-5 people). Mashed potatoes rock. Had chocolate mousse cake with schlag and the waiters sang happy birthday. Wonderful meal all around. Would definitely recommend and return!
