Steakhouse
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.

Always a good choice before a show but give yourself plenty of time.

If you have a table booked, don’t expect to be seated at that time. Expect to be told to have a drink at the bar (where it’s standing only), then be called for your table but you have to settle the bar tab first because they don’t transfer it to your table tab, wait for 5 minutes for the drinks bill, then find out your table has been given away! And you’re expected to tip the bar server for one drink!

Not a slick operation and way too busy.. kind of put a downer on the night

Our eldest daughter had made reservations here for our 20 wedding anniversary. It was the best dinner i have had in a long time. It made this event even more special. The food was excellent, the service was awesome, and the ambient very comfortable. I would love to come back. This has bec0me my new favorite place. I invite you all to come to Galligher, you will have a great time.

The steak was extremely raw and lacked flavor, we had to ask for extra salt to season a 120$ steak. My margarita was just sour mix. The waiter barely came to check on us. All on Valentine’s Day. However, the crab cake was delicious and so was the steak sauce. Not enough to come back though.

The new owner and subsequent refresh that occurred a few years ago has truly transformed Gallagher's into a must try Steakhouse. The food is delicious, the drinks are too shelf, and there are wine options for everyone. Be prepared for the bill but I highly recommend it.

We were celebrating Valentines Day and seeing a play. Just love the atmosphere, the food and the service. I had the filet and my wife had the veal chop. Both superb. Had the NY cheesecake for desert. Having grown up with Juniors cheesecake I am quite spoiled. I have to say that the Gallagher’s cheesecake had Juniors beat! Hard to believe but true.

Gallagher’s has become our “go to” NYC steakhouse.

Love g’s. Best steakhouse hands down in the city. It was Valentines dinner so it was busier than that a normal evening for dinner. The service was more rushed than usual and the salad looked “sad” The quality of food and service wasn’t its best example. I hope this is not its trend. I used to swear by Keens but that has become a rushed tourist experience and I refuse to go.

Overall very good experience
Somewhat noisy but can be the norm for a steakhouse
Food was very good but my steak was slightly over cooked
Ordered medium rare got medium
I didn’t bother to ask for more rare

It was worth the effort. Everything was lovely until the waiter, who by the way was very nice, brought me the wrong steak order. Had to wait for correct cut to be prepared while I watch my wife enjoy her dinner and my side get cold. They did give me a fresh order of side with the the correct cut and my third glass of house wine was on the house. What would have been a wonderful experience did not turn out that way because of the error with my order. When you’re spending a few hundred for dinner for two, you shouldn’t encounter such mistakes.

The receptionist is cold and unprofessional. When I started check in, there was a phone call coming in. He chose to stop my check in and started to take the reservation over that phone, and talked and laughed for more than 5 minutes. Then returned to me withou apology and he seemed to be unhappy!

The Pre-Fixe Lunch Special for $29 is excellent.

Be careful, cocktail prices are high prices $18.

Coffee/Tea extra and about what everyone is charging $5.

The restaurant is spotless, I haven't seen a restaurant in NYC so clean in such a long time. Good Work Gallaghers. Plates were hot/warm and the food was very good and the entree` nice and hot, and the salad was nice and cold, everything the way it's suppose to be.

Thank you,

Ambiance was great, food was good but I’ve had better, my medium steak was more like medium rare while my husbands medium well was more well done. Everything food wise was good but not great. Service was very good.
