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.

It must be my 100th time in Gallaghers. I love this place. Great food, people, atmosphere and I regularly dine alone. They make you feel extremely welcome.

We had reservations for 6pm and arrived around 4:30. We sat at the bar to have some drinks before dinner. The bartender was rude to us. He looked bothered when my boyfriend asked him for a drink. I was looking over the cocktail menu trying to decide what I wanted and he walked away and never acknowledged us again. Another bartender started the shift and he told him to find out what we wanted. (After my boyfriend reminded him that we were sitting there). The other bartender was very friendly and ended up making my drink (after waiting 20 minutes). Besides that the restaurant was wonderful. The food was delicious, our server was great and we would definitely return.

One of the best steaks I’ve had. I appreciated that Gallagher’s was able to retain the beautiful flavor of the aged meat while balancing the charred flavor from the grill. The cook on my steak was a perfect medium rare.

Sides and cocktails were also notable, we had the onion rings and creamed spinach. The creamed spinach was creamy without being drenched in cheese and cream. You could still taste the flavor of the spinach. The dipping sauce for the onion rings is something special.

Overall would recommend! Service was exactly what you would expect coming to a high end steakhouse: polite, attentive, and accommodating.

We loved the meal and the ambience in the restaurant. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars was that the air conditioning was so cold.

Two of us. Two gin and tonics. Split a steak that was good, but not insane. A piece of bacon. Mac and cheese. And tuna tartare. Over $200. It was loud. Staff was great, but would never go back. Nothing overly special about the experience.

We had a reservations for after a show. 9:45pm. We were rushed. Waiter was disinterested in us and very pushy. Hurried us along to order, to eat, to leave. We hadn’t received our drinks when he asked for our order. Barely looked at us. My salmon was over cooked and dry. My husbands steak was fine. We’ve been here several times in the past and were very well satisfied. This experience was quite an unpleasant surprise.

We had an excellent experience and the food was superior. My husband and I each had a filet, which was cooked to perfection and the flavor and tenderness was wonderful. We shared a side of sauteed spinach, which was also cooked to perfection and very flavorful. Our two servers were very attentive with great personalities, making sure that we had a great experience. I highly recommend Gallaghers and we will return the next time we are in Manhattan.

Jimmy our server was outstanding. His knowledge of the menu and specials was amazing. He was so friendly and funny and made the experience that much more enjoyable. The food and staff were outstanding as well. We celebrated our wedding anniversary here and they sang happy anniversary to us with a homemade chocolate cake to enjoy and candle to blow out.

Great restaurant, the best Portherhouse we have had. One uncomfortable thing was that the AC was running so hard that I was very cold, and quickly the meal was too.. Overall a must-go restaurant in NYC!

3 Stars because I had an 8:00 reservation and didn’t get a seat till 8:45-9:00. So we sat at the bar killing time getting a drink and The bar tender didn’t even ask how our drinks were, didn’t give us a water which would’ve been great after traveling all day to and through NY to eventually end up at Gallagher’s and when we asked for our check he was busy counting money and didn’t even acknowledge that I was asking for our check. It was pretty strange to be honest and It’s not a huge deal but why give information about the occasion for no reason? Maybe it was a miscommunication but I put down that it was my Wife’s Birthday and usually at a place like that somebody says something, but not a huge deal. The Food was great except the steak sauce (I only tasted the Steak Sauce because I didn’t want to kill my steak but it was basically ketchup) and our waiter was top notch. I love the fact it was a speak easy and dated back to 1927 and it had a lot of character. I would certainly recommend to someone and would return myself but not keeping up with a reservation time by 45 minutes is pretty weak.

Meal was fantastic, lobster cocktail for starter could have been enough for a main course. Steak was cooked to perfection and the spinach was most likely the best I’ve ever had, so much food we couldn’t eat it all. Would highly recommend great food and service

Though our meal and server were spectacular, we were seated at a table upstairs (actually didn’t know there WAS an upstairs) and now know that we prefer dining in the main dining area downstairs. Felt a little isolated up there. That’s just a personal preference, so not a complaint. Gallagher’s is the real deal and continues to be one of our top picks when in NYC. Great job

Excellent. Our first time there. Waiter Carlos was the best. Said is was only promoted to waiter 2 months ago but he performed like a seasoned pro. Can definitely read his customers well. Gave us all the time appropriate for us between courses. Steak one of the best I've ever had. The Grillmasters cooked it perfect, my complements guys. My seat allowed me to observe the grilling, really interesting.
Tender, tasty, delicious. Will definitely go again next time in NYC .
