Although the restaurant was very crowded, we were seated immediately. The noise level was such that we could converse easily. Service was excellent; food met expectations.

Service was very good, my friend liked her vodka martini and said her swordfish steak was excellent. My margarita was very good, escargot excellent, the snails tender and the sauce, which makes or breaks the dish, perfect. But my almond crusted filet of sole only fair. It was not cooked through. I took half of it home and my dog loved it. The chef should -- I know he/her won't -- try the fish at Lusardi's on 2nd Avenue between 77th & 78th. The kitchen there really knows how to cook fish. Would I go back? Of course, I like the place, but I wouldn't order the sole again.

This is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. The food and service are excellent and the location is charming. Very unpretentious and down to earth. And don’t miss dessert which is all homemade at the restaurant.

Le Steak has the best escargots in nyc. This is the go to place for snails! The rest of the menu is mostly Italian but nonetheless very good. My friend and I requested a table in the window, which we got and it was lovely to see New Yorkers walking by our cozy window perch. The service was very nice despite the fact that the restaurant was packed.Beats

Four of us met for a friendly get together lunch. We sat at a window table, which we had requested. It was light and pretty, and the restaurant was comfortably warm on this freezing winter day. Our waitperson was attentive, very charming and helpful when we questioned her about the choices. The meal was delicious. I had the filet of sole in an almond crust on a bed of spinach; the fish was succulent, and the portion was more than ample. My husband had the swordfish on a bed of spinach and mashed potatoes. He said they were the best potatoes he had ever had, and the fish was perfectly cooked. Our two friends each had the lunch special, onion soup and the perch, which they enjoyed throughly. This has become one of our favorite, if not the favorite restaurant, and it is in our neighborhood! Who could ask for anything more? Oh, and the Pinot Grigio, which two of us had, and the Merlot, which the other two had were very fine.

Very neighboring. Haven’t been in a while.
Customers seemed to be on first name basis with many of the customers and not in a “I’m Tom and I’ll be your sever way”
Steak sandwich is ohhh la la.
At Christmas it’s v. Festive.

My husband and I recently celebrated our first wedding anniversary here at Bistro Le Steak. It was originally recommended to us by a friend of ours who is local (we live in NJ). I'm very happy we made reservations here. It was very busy, but they were very attentive and the food came out within a reasonable wait time. All of the staff we encountered were wonderful. Larry was our waiter. He recommended an amazing bottle of white wine to go with our dinner and even let us sample it before we made our decision. The steak and shrimp cocktail were out of this world. And my husband and I both agree that their French onion soup is the best we've ever had. We would absolutely go back again and I recommend it to anybody who is looking for a delicious steak dinner with their loved ones.

The restaurant's ambience and service were very good. We needed help with a wheelchair and they were very accommodating. The filet mignon was excellent -- as was the ice cream and Bailey's Coffee (charged $10/$9 on menu). My Kobe burger - ordered medium rare -- was not up to expectations (particularly for $20). Quite dry and too well done with a hard crust.

Have eaten there many times very happily

Not this time. One steak was too well done

One was almost raw. My fish was dried out from over cooking They tried to recook one steak and finally replaced it. And did not charge for it. They were gracious. But the chef was really not up to par

The food at Le Steak is consistently good. We had the round table in the window which feels like you are outside with none of disadvantages of eating outdoors. Our waiter, Jonathan, was a delight and sang a beautiful Happy Birthday to my 24 year old son. This was the first visit to Le Steak for my son's girlfriend and her parents (from NJ) and they loved the restaurant. It was a wonderful birthday experience and reasonably priced for a delicious Manhattan dinner for 6 people.

Skip the traditional steakhouse and go here instead. Steaks were just as impressive but more reasonable. Also a broader selection of appetizers and entrees. Reasonable wine list as well. Would definitely go back.

Great neighborhood bistro for steak on the Upper East Side. Not fancy or cutting edge, but wonderfully prepared and executed traditional French bistro fare, like steak frites, French onion soup and chocolate mousse. Friendly and efficient service. The French Restaurant Week menu was a steal at just $38 and included a glass of wine. Will be back!

We went as a family get together and our experience was great. The food was excellent and the waiters and servers were super courteous and polite.
The creme brûlée was fantastic, the lava cake tasted like it was from the freezer. I do not remember what the other desserts were but they seemed to be well liked.
In regards to the mains, the filet mignon was really good, the burger was kind of small (but for the price that makes sense).
We ordered some mushroom in filo dough appetizer amongst the other apps, it was brilliant as well.
