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.

Ein rundum gelungener Abend! Hervorragender Service und leckeres Essen, es hat einfach alles gepasst. Von Anfang bis Ende aufmerksamer und zuvorkommender Service! Das Gallaghers empfehlen wir gern weiter!

First time but wont be my last. Very pleasantly surprised about everything. The app, steaks, sides and drinks were great. Service was top notch. The only disappointing aspect was the desert menu. Nothing wa interesting just typical steakhouse offerings.

Two couples and all four people raved. It's not often anyone can make a filet with a remarkable taste, but the these were uniquely satisfying by themselves, without any sauces. Surprising and amazing seasoning, just the perfect amount. The sides were cooked perfectly. Thanks for the great time. The ambiance was, as always, perfect. Don't change a thing!

Just think of as the opposite of the bad review about that “other place”. The waiter was a gentleman...and me feel like a gentleman, food was spot on, all good!

We had an 4:30 Sunday reservation - the place was quiet and the elderly waiter barely asked us for a drink order before asking us what we wanted for an entree. No appetizer or salad/soup course. I could tell he was not interested in servicing us. 2 of us ordered the 2 person porterhouse at a cost of $104.00. It came late and cold. So ended up with cold steak and hot sides. When they re-fired the steak it wasn't medium rare and the sides were cold. At a restaurant that averages $175.00 to $200.00 per person it was disappointing. Managers scurried with fix with desserts but as we all know when the timing was botched and you have a waiter with no interest - its just not a good event.

awesome meat (food in general). Good advices from the waiter on food, wine. Patient, Professional, smiling service. The place is awesome, so New-York chic atmospher. It is not a "every day" restaurant, quite expensive, but the quality is so high level, it worths it.

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.

Service was extremely inattentive. Our water glasses remained empty for upwards of 10 minutes. The steak was dry, overcooked and devoid of flavor. One of the worst steakhouse experiences I've had.

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

I had eaten at Gallaghers in the 1990s. Then, the food was superior. I'm pleased to note that the restaurant has maintained its high standards for food and service.

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.
