Steakhouse
NOW AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY & PICK UP, TUES - SAT 12-8 THROUGH DOORDASH & UBEREATS

Founded by former Ziegfield girl Helen Gallagher and the colorful gambler and sports enthusiast Jack Solomon, Gallaghers opened as a speakeasy and steakhouse in 1927. At that time, the height of Prohibition, a good stiff drink and a great steak were hard to find in New York – except, of course, at Gallaghers.

New Yorkers come for the world-class cocktails and incredible steak – prime beef dry-aged for 21 days in Gallaghers’ legendary windowed meat locker. The combination of all-natural dry aging and cooking it to perfection over hickory coals makes for a steak unlike any other found in New York.

Gallaghers’ guests are welcome in a wide variety of attire – from elegant casual to business suits. We respectfully request that you refrain from wearing hats, sports jerseys, tank tops and shorts.

Probably the best steak I've ever had, you will NOT be disappointed. The service is just okay, MAJOR attitude, I ordered a $24 glass of wine, they should have let me sample prior to filling the glass, most restaurants of that caliber would have.
Yes, I would recommend this place

One of the best steaks we have had. Fabulous service, amazing food & a really thoughtful waiter who brought a surprise cake for my husband. We did the $29 3 course lunch. Such good value for money and each course was absolutely delicious. We will definitely go back. Would highly recommend.

Wow !!! Had heard other reviews about Gallagher’s so said we would try and it didn’t disappoint!! We went for the lunch special and by far it was the best meal we had while in nyc ..
the steak was the best steak I’d even eaten and that’s saying something .. loved the restaurant decor with an abundance of wall memorable to gaze at while waiting .. service was prompt and waiter were helpfully pleasant but not overbearing as some places can be .. ..
if you couldn’t manage to finish your dessert no prob they wrap it up for you for take away ( we didn’t have that problem!!!)
It was just fab from start to finish please put it on your list while in nyc

Lovely evening. Fabulous food. One of the best French onion soups I have ever tasted. Very attentive waiters.
Only negative is that the sides are too big for two so smaller portions that would be more suitable for 2 would be a good option and would be more favourably priced for 2.

We were on vacation and the four of us went to Gallagher’s for dinner. It is a beautiful old restaurant in midtown Manhattan. The staff is very welcoming and friendly and in general, a great atmosphere. We enjoyed most of our food. The hash browns could have been crispier and my husband’s half of our filet mignon was tough. My part was very good. All in all we had a great experience at Gallagher’s steak house.

I was with a friend this past Saturday I ordered the filet. The filet was delish however it was cold when it made it to the table and HAD to it back.

My friend ordered the dry aged steak and it was not seasoned well and under cooked. Unfortunately, we didn't send it back just because the preference is not to.

Our service was great and provided by Ceasar. He was AMAZING. THANK YOU CEASAR!!

On the booking I said it was for a birthday but the staff did nothing to acknowledge the fact , my husband loved the steak , I had shrimp and they came breaded which was not made clear so the meal was dry and disappointing . The tables are far to close to each other and had to be moved so I could get in and out , you could hear the conversation of the couple on either side. Very expensive for what it was and I wouldn’t go back

So glad we booked this, it made our short stay even more enjoyable! The place is great and the staff were brilliant, they are very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The best steak I've ever eaten and it was great to have a seat in full view of the ovens and pass. We finished the evening off at the bar and they certainly know how to make a cocktail! Would definitely book here again.

Being our 1st experience we felt the tables were very close together and if you wanted to visit the rest room the table had to be moved out in order to do so. Although the food was very good we felt it was overpriced for what it was.

Gallaghers is my go to steakhouse in NYC. It is classic, old school, and rich in tradition. The oysters, salads, and sides are excellent, as are the cocktails and wines. Once you are seated, which may take awhile even with reservations on a weekend evening, there's never a rush. The steaks and salmon are superb. It is pricey, and there are no burgers.

Its the 2nd time my wife and I have been there, 1st time was 5years ago, and it didn't disappoint the 2nd time around. Superb place if you love your steak, also if you love tuna or swordfish. Make sure you go on an empty stomach, as the portions are quite big, it may seem pricey on the menu, but the steaks and fish are melt in the mouth. And don't forget the NY cheesecake, best in NYC by a country mile.

Outstanding Food , my Steak was cooked to perfection, mouthwatering aged beef cooked and prepared at the right temperature. My brides tuna was delicious as she enjoyed her Pinot while my friend tried the full body Red.
It happened to be my birthday so I was pleasantly surprised with a candle on a cake🙏 The famous folks that reminded of last time I dined there will always be part of the great history of Gallagher’s. Thank you!

We love Gallagher’s have been coming here for years when we are lucky enough to get into the city. Love the “more seasoned” waiters who are an institution. This was a special occasion and we were thrilled to be celebrating at Gallagher’s. The ribeye was amazing and the back waiter Caesar was wonderful. Our main waiter Juan was MIA for the majority of the evening.
When our food arrived the other waiters all pitched in to serve it as it was getting cold sitting on a tray beside our table. After the meal we ordered coffee from Juan. The dessert menu was later presented and we ordered dessert, no coffee. The dessert was delivered and still no coffee, we finally flagged down Caesar and told him we were waiting for coffee and he asked if we had ordered it from him and we said “no” The coffee was then delivered promptly to Caesar. Once we has finished coffee and dessert we sat and waited and waited Juan never checked back to see how everything was or if we needed refills or a check. After about 20 minutes we had to flag someone down to get our check. When Juan arrived with the bill and my husband handed him the credit card he was “appalled” that it was handed to him and not Caesar and made a big show of giving it to Caesar to handle. Juan was a lousy waiter and did a lousy job everyone else was very nice and professional.
Being a business owner and in the food service business I took it all with a grain of salt but Juan was a lousy waiter, at least to our table! The steaks were outstanding, cooked to perfection and melt in your mouth delicious!
