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.

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.

We came to Gallaghers to celebrate my birthday as a family. We handed to have the classic NYC Steakhouse experience. We were not disappointed. Everything we ordered from the oysters to the strawberry shortcake were superb. We brought our 11 and 10 year old with us and the staff could not have been more accommodating, even when my daughter spilled her full Shirley Temple! An excellent establishment that should not be missed.

Gallagher’s never disappoints. The welcoming atmosphere and cheerful waiters makes for a wonderful meal. The food is outstanding, from soup to dessert. I always look forward to going there when I am in the city.

We have been to Gallagher's multiple times, and this was the first time my steak was horrible - no taste, except that of grizzle. I didn't even look right!

Knowing Gallagher's, I am sure this was just a singular experience:. I am sure my next visit will back to its usual excellent quality

We had the best service. Our waiter picked up on the fact that we were celebrating our moms birthday, who passed away years ago. This was one of her favorite spots so we dined in her memory. The waiter brought a piece of cake with a candle in it ! We were so touched, we all had tears !!
Great service, great food.

This steakhouse is the quintessential New York steakhouse, right down to the friendly middle-aged waiting staff. Very efficient service on a busy night, and the food was superb.

Gallagher’s is an outstanding steakhouse in midtown Nes York. Although expensive, the steaks are delicious and service is outstanding. It is walking distance to theatres,

Having been here many times before - we arrived with high expectations. We were greeted by a friendly staff and manager and shown to the bar while our table was readied. There we had expertly made cocktails and enjoyed the vibe of the old school bar.
From there our drinks were carried to our table by a nice older gentleman who lead us to our table. We were greeted by our waiter who has been working there for 37 years. He was perfect.
The food was excellent- as always. Steaks perfectly cooked. The sides were delicious and DO NOT MISS their NY Cheesecake. Lighter than most, but a perfect mix of lemon and vanilla and texture.
Nice wine list (a bit on the high side) and yummy coffee.

I recommend this place to anyone who wants an amazing dinner experience.

It felt so noisy that you literally had to yell to get heard by the person next to you. That to me is not a celebration it's a violation of a special occasion. It's unfortunate I think they need to rearrrange seating in their dining room.

We really enjoy Gallagher’s and try to dine here every time we’re in NYC! Love the soft lighting,dark rich wood trim and background music. Servers are so efficient and steaks are delicious! Only drawback is extreme noise level and at some booths, dining so close to other patrons, you lose the intimate conversation...especially when they are so loud you can’t think! (As was the case tonight)

We had a really bad experience, we were seated with a 30 minutes delay and our table was next to the kitchen (full of noise of plates, glasses and of personnel working). When I claimed that I did not like th talbe the answer was that it was the one available and that if I wanted to change we wolud have had to wait.
We've order for a steak - rare - (a classic of the place) and after 1 hour wating we've had a medium cooked steak.
They offered us a dessert but ifor a 400 dollars dinner I wolud have expect a better treatment

Lunch menu is a good deal. Three courses for $30 with a $10 upcharge for 10oz filet. Food and service was great, although steaks were not as flavorful as at dinner; not sure why smoky flavor was not present at lunch. Lots of choices for a very good lunch, at about 1/2 the price.

belle ambiance et serveurs très sympathiques. bruyant mais les anglo-saxons parlent fort en général.......
la viande était un délice.
ce n'est pas pour rien que c'est une institution connue dans le monde entier.

A classic visit for us when travelling to NYC, the place remain definitly a must, with an appropriate balance between quality of food, experienced service, ambiance.
The classic porterhouse is always perfecly cooked by grill master chef, the sides are generous and tasty.
I've been there with with parents, come now with my kids, always a good experience, even more after the NYC2019 ! worth it, will come again for sure.

Steaks had a great smoky flavor, and were cooked to the ordered cooking temperature. Onion rings and fries were great as well. Everything about our dining experience was great except for the tremendous noise, and the fact that we were only a foot away from tables on either side of us. Our server was very good, attentive, but not hovering. Our meal was paced well so we could enjoy our bottle of wine without being rushed. Easily our best dinner during our NYC vacation.

My favorite place in NYC. Love the steaks, but this time we shared a 3.5 pound lobster, fresh and delicious, as was the Caesar salad and hash brown potatoes, Hemingway daquerie delicious, followed by a wonderful nana split.
