The food was as good as we have experienced at more renowned NYC steakhouses. We enjoyed the steaks, asparagus, chocolate lava cake, and especially the oysters for the happy hour price. Service was good although our particular waiter was trying too hard to be clever and disappeared for a cigarette break. We definitely would return as the eastside location was convenient for us. They have e a similar restaurant located on the west side.

The food was great!! The steak was amazing melt in your mouth delicious, and I was lucky enough to go during restaurant week so it was a great deal. I’m not sure I would pay full price. I didn’t realize this is actually a hotel restaurant so there were literally folks there with their luggage. Our table linens weren’t clean and our server left in the middle of our dinner which was odd, it’s not like we were there particularly long or late. The servers seemed to be “play acting” at being gentile which kind of gave it an insincere vibe. Try to sit in one of the booths, the acoustics on the floor under the dome are SO bad. Like I literally thought one mans voice was being projected through their sound system until I realized he was sitting directly across from me under the dome and it was carrying his voice to me. All that being said the food really was excellent and we had an enjoyable time!

We dined here during restaurant week and got great deals. I thought the food was good and it came out timely. I liked this restaurant mostly because the location was perfect for us. The host, or may the manager was the best service person there. I think the waitstaff was good, but our empty plates did sit for about 10 minutes. We did have a train to catch so that delay was not ideal. Overall a good experience. I have to say, I don't think the music they played at the restaurant matched the decor or the vibe. I can't put my finger on it, but something about the music and the decor was just not making the right connections. Would recommend changing the music.

The service from the young woman who greeted us and management was superb. The smile on both their faces started off our experience on a great note. The restaurant is cozy, tables close together but we really enjoyed it. The wait staff were quickly moving through the restaurant as it was NYC Restaurant Week and they were trying to serve as quickly as possible. Our meal was served in a timely fashion. Cream of mushroom soup was excellent, Fried Calamari was delicious. Filet Mignon and Ribeye were terrific and cooked to perfection. The broccoli and mashed potatoes were yummy! The cheesecake was fantastic! We definitely will return to try the regular menu instead of the wonderful deals on the Restaurant Week menu. I loved that the hostess placed the Restaurant Week menu inside of the regular menu so people do not have to ask for it.

Went for dinner not knowing it was restaurant week so we ended up doing that. Our server, Rajo was incredible, especially since my date and I were probably the youngest in the house. I’m pretty used to not getting the same service as someone older or when dining with my parents but that was not the case here. I also thought that since we decided to do restaurant week that the service might have changed and it didn’t. All parts of the meal were amazing. I had the Cesar salad, filet mignon entree and chocolate desert and my date had the bacon, filet mignon and cheesecake. We split a bottle of wine and the truffle Mac and cheese which was easily the best Mac and cheese I’ve ever had. Can’t say enough good things, will definitely be back

My wife and I dined here for Restaurant Week, and needless to say, we were not really impressed. Granted, I know some restaurants pare down their menus for Restaurant Week, but my Boneless Ribeye was something that I might find at a third-tier steak house. The mashed potatoes were bland, which had me longing for some Idahoan instant mashed potatoes. My meal also had broccoli, which was really good. I'm not sure I would try this place again (certainly not during Restaurant Week).

Hi tip of the year. Get your barman, the lady on the front of house (especially) and your self-obsessed waiters together and take them to The View on a field trip to see how it’s done! After reading please do not say we hope it’s better next time there won’t be one.

From start to finish. Barman, extremely unwelcoming. Young lady as front of house without a doubt does not want to be there. I walked up said Hi we have a table booked in the name of Mark @ 7.15 - Nothing (not a word from her!?). Walked back finished our drinks at the bar, walked back to get our table, Hello could we sit for dinner - Nothing (again not a single word), she just turns speaks to a waiter and we're sat at the wrong table (we made a specific request), We're sat at a table and the seats are soaking wet (why!?). We are then put into a booth which was much better...

We order mix seafood and soup appetizer and porterhouse for two. The food was excellent. It would be remiss of Debbie & I not to make this point!!! My thanks to the chef....

However, here's the next bit. Wine everywhere is brutally overpriced. It’s silly really and we all know this. So you can’t tag these guys for that!!!!

However with the appetizers the waiter spills the soup on the table just missing Debbie's dress, oops was the best he could muster as a reply?? The next waiter drops the plate the porterhouse steak was presented on and the juice spills all over the table. Not a word said,.

I ask if the restaurant is open on New Year’s Day as the food alone would be worth trying again although the service definitely isn't!!! Can you believe we actually considered it after this write up so far!!!

Waiters reply - Yeh you're in New York, we're always open fella!.....

Also at this point they are notably more attentive to one or two specific patrons and some equally as rude - Why !!!!???

It comes to paying... Check please, nothing the waiters fly past. 15 minutes later Check ppllllleee - Zooooommm nothing.

One last attempt C

Decided to go for a Christmas meal and it was very good with just a couple hiccups which were very well handled by employees. Given the high volume for Christmas dinner, we did have quite a wait before being seated despite reservation but the bar staff was excellent. Overall, great food and wonderful atmosphere. There seemed to be something off about the creamed spinach so it was immediately taken away and we were offered an after dinner drink as an apology.

We celebrated our Christmas dinner here. Only complaint is it was hot and we had to wait 30 min with a reservation. Wait staff were superb!
