It was supposed to be a NY steak experience and I ended up having chicken and mushrooms! The menu was very, very limited and Very expensive compared to the many other steak houses I have visited in NYC

Classic steakhouse with cozy imyou are in your own world. The steaks were millisecond perfect. Potatoes were ordinary but fine and the creamer spinach was good too if a little lacking in flavour but fresh spinach.

To start..this place is awesome! My wife and I were in town to see Elton John and stayed across the street from Frankie & Johnnie's. The service by Spiro and a gentleman who filled in for him for a bit (Didn't get his name but he told us he was originally form Mexico) was superb. They were charming and conversational without interfering. Truly added to our enjoyment.
The drinks were delicious. Then, the food started to come. Wow! Oysters Rockefeller were the best I have ever had and I live by the ocean and order them often. Crab cake was uniquely prepared and off the charts delicious.
Steak sandwich and homemade fries were perfect. Lobster ravioli could not have been better. The ambiance was so nice. We were going to try to get there for a night cap, but the concert was a bit longer than we had thought it would. A++++

I have been here a few times before and enjoyed it. This time? Utterly unremarkable food. And terrible value. I wish I had gone to the Benjamin...which does this way better. Nice old school place...but clearly a lot of fierce competition

We had to alter our reservation and were accommodated fully. The steaks were tender and flavorful and the broccoli was outstanding. The wine and dessert were outstanding as well. A great time made even better by the accommodating wait staff.

Stopped at the bar on Monday February 18th. Spiero (spelling ?) was bartending.

Well suffice it to say my friend and I had a wonderful time and lunch. Spiero was awesome.

We had such a good time, we decided to make dinner reservations and brought the rest of our group with us on Friday the 22nd. Again, we had an amazing time and meal! Spiero was outstanding.

Our group of 4 gals, meet every year, the same week, (President’s Week) for our “Annual Broadway Week”.

We will be back next year for sure
Thanks for a wonderful experience
Thanks again to Spiero!!

This was the first time we ate at this steak house as we typically do not go to steak houses because I am not a steak eater but my wife is. We found the atmosphere very cozy and comfortable, the service excellent and the food outstanding. We started with an seafood appetizer for two consisting of shrimp scampi, crab cakes and clams casino. It was very flavorful and delicious. I had the Chilean Sea Bass which was also delicious prepared simply and in a wonderful sauce. My wife had her favorite, a rib eye steak which she said was amazing and cooked to perfection. Overall an excellent e perience.

Went for Winter Restaurant Week with my girlfriend for dinner. We had the crabcakes as a starter and it was ok at best. We both ordered the Surf and Turf and the steak came out perfect. The shrimp was amazing, as well as the side of broccoli we ordered. For dessert, I had the Key Lime Pie and my girlfriend had the Gelato. Both were really good. I was pleased overall with my experience. We plan on coming back soon.

Fantastic Friday night in NYC!
We started with a fabulous bottle of King Estate Willamette Valley pinot noir.
My crab cake appetizer w/ potato crust was amazing! My wife’s salad was fresh and crisp.
The porterhouse steak for 2 was cooked to perfection and flavorful. Sides of lyonnaise potatoes and mushrooms were delicious.
Awesome service from the very personable Spiro!
Can’t wait for our next visit

So sorry to this lovely steakhouse but the steak medallion you served for restaurant would prevent me from ever recommending it to anyone. The mashed potatoes was also not tasty. Wait staff was very attentive and nice though!

Where do I start.
My wife lobster brisk tasted like tomatoe soup with just a hint of lobster flavouring. I had shrimp to start and was impressed by the size of the shrimp which where juicy but very bland in taste. The main course is what saved them from getting a zero star rating. I had sea bass which was flavoursome and my wife had a good portion of grilled chicken breast which she enjoyed along with the garlic mash and broccolii. We had eaten in quite a few restaurants of betting degrees and this lace was way overpriced and I felt we were being “stung” like tourists to the dum of shy of $250 including gratuity which we wouldn’t have minded paying but this restaurant was by far not up to that standard. Don’t be blinded by the fact that their steak is rested for 28dsys this won’t take you away from the fact the food on the whole is just about average. I think the manager has a very keen eye and saw us coming a mile off. Marks 4/10

The ambiance at this location was much nicer than others. The food was very good, though very expensive. Unfortunately, I got sick for 24 hours after - not at all what I expected. Others in my party were fine. I suspect the Caesar salad or whipped cream on the dessert I had. Unacceptable for this level establishment.

We were seated next to a very loud customer and upon request to move immediately before creating any excess difficulty, we received a lot of pushback and annoyance to us moving. It became quite a production where water, utensils, napkins, etc had to be moved with us. I found that to be quite tacky. Service was okay. It wasn’t the friendliest waiter. Food was good and decent portions. Something for everyone on the restaurant week menu.
