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.

Great experience especially since it was my granddaughters first trip to NYC. She thought the food was awesome! And since my last name is Gallagher I just about had her convinced the restaurant was a family business.

Although I have really enjoyed this restaurant in the past, my food arrived very tepid. Even when I sent it back the meat was not as hot as it should be. Not happy

Amazing - True New York Steakhouse packed with a historical ambiance serving amazing food and great service. Rick treated us like family and we had a great night. Bit on the pricy side but you get what you pay for for sure; #1 steakhouse in NYC.

Service, food, cocktails are outstanding! although the venue is energetic, a nice, quiet, romantic evening can also be achieved there- just ask for a corner.

Not giving a bad review based on anything else other than we got unfortunately caught in the big city wide power outage. We were seated and just got our bread. The power went out and since the kitchen had no power, we had to leave.

We were at Gallagher’s this past weekend to celebrate my husbands birthday and it was amazing. Wonderful dinner in an iconic NY streakhouse. A little pricey, but it’s worth it! Will go again for sure!

Very mediocre. Cheap on the drink pouring. Appetizers were just ok. Porterhouse was cold and almost inedible. Had to send it back for them to heat up. Sides were decent. A big letdown.

for whatever reason, I used to go to steakhouses and did not frequent Gallagher's because I try to stay away from the theater district b/c it's very hectic. however, since smith and wollensky's is no longer an option because they are awful now, I have been going to Gallagher's on a regular basis and it is fantastic!

a huuuuge shout-out to adam and sang who provide tremendous service without being aggressive, pushy, or in your face. the summer menu items are delicious!

Food was great, service good. Wine very expensive. Tables are too close together for a restaurant of this quality. Our table was squeezed in between a corner booth and and end table meaning every time the waiter attended the booth he had to lean over me or bump our table. Otherwise a great night.

They messed up the lamb twice in a single setting. The filet was okay, but the mashed potatoes were great as was the crab cake. Service was great. Get tomahawk, people beside us got it and it looked great.

Great ambiance and service, however the steaks were very average quality and the seasoning was non-existent. Therefore cannot recommend as the price was way too high given the quality of the meat.

We visited many places in NYC this past week and Gallaghers was our favorite restaurant. We went after Mean Girls and it was myself, my 19 year old son and 14 year old daughter. The ambiance was lovely - just the right amount of light and music (Sinatra type music - loved it). The service was outstanding! My kids had filet mignon which they raved about and I had the chicken and cous cous - so yummy. We had dessert as well. Creme Brulee was incredible. My daughter had the trio of puff pastries which she liked. My son had cheesecake which he enjoyed. Can't recommend this place enough.

Gallaghers Steakhouse was a beautiful restaurant with amazing steaks. It is a bit expensive, but we were expecting that for a higher-end restaurant. They kept the wine so we could make our showtime, and we were able to retrieve it later. Absolutely phenomenal.
