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.

Very noisy and quite pricey. But the meat is splendid.

We had 7pm reservations, came about 15 minutes early and were seated immediately, which was a huge plus considering the place was full so I definitely recommend making a reservation.
It overall appearance was very clean and had nice decor. Background music was appropriate. The bartenders all had white jackets on and the all-male waitstaff were dressed in black coats with aprons underneath.
The food was good but we couldn’t understand how a steak house could have been out of Prime Rib on a Friday night...I had ordered my filet medium and it came to me rare. I can eat rare, just don’t prefer it cooked that way. The dirty martinis were nice and strong. Coffees were huge and the Creme Brûlée was very good.
The waitstaff was nice, but we watched how other staff served the sides to the customers by placing it on their plates, however, our sides were just placed on our table. No one was rude, but when we go to other steakhouses, we get better attention by the waitstaff.
Overall, it was good but not the best I’ve been to. However, I would still recommend.

From start to finish this was a great experience. The food was exceptional, comfortable steak house setting and service was both friendly and efficient. I was last here in 1969, but will now make this my regular stop for either a convenient broadway event or just a great piece of meat. Highly recommend.

Honestly not impressed. My daughter did not like her food and the waiter told us maybe next time we come it would be better. Then he disappeared without a word and we sat waiting for dessert for over 40 minutes before another waiter finally came and asked if he could help us!! Not the level of service I expected at a place like this

We had a late lunch before going to the theater. It is restaurant week, so we had a fantastic 3 course steak dinner and the wait staff was excellent.

Fantastic authentic Italian/New York ambience and friendly service from wise cracking wait staff! We had great banter with them all which really added to the experience!
Lunch menu is exceptional value for money! My only complaint is the charge of $8 for a bottle of water for the table. Seems a bit excessive. Otherwise can’t complain. Beautiful food, wine and service top notch.

Both of our steaks were fantastic, done perfectly. The cheesecake was hands down the best cheesecake we’ve ever had! We are so happy we chose Gallagher’s for our NY steak house experience.

Next time I need to visit with more in our party to enjoy a larger variety of the sides as they looked so good. I would suggest the possibility of ordering 1/2 sides or combination sides, which I think could be really helpful since I am sure most people would like to enjoy at least 2, but clearly at that rate there is sure to be food that was wasted. Nonetheless, we left completely full and to the point we could not order dessert, but so desperately wanted to given how awesome they looked. The dry aged (signature selection) is the way to go and we were not disappointed!!

Super Essen, super Service, guter Wein dieser war leider sehr teuer. Nur das übliche Chlorwasser zum Essen, keine Möglichkeit ein gutes Mineralwasser zu kaufen. Das Fleisch war hervorragend.

Steaks were so tough that you could not cut into. Basically inedible. Waste of money and a tourist trap where people are lured in due to the display of aged steaks in the front of the restaurant. Only positive is it’s a convenient location if your going to a nearby show. Otherwise don’t bother. There are plenty of other steakhouses with impeccable food and service in the area and for reasonably the same price.

From the moment we walked in we were made to feel very welcome, our server ers were very attentive without being instrucive. We had chosen to go of the fixed lunch menu for $29 plus paid the additional $10 to get the fillet steak, which was worth it this was some of the best steak I had ever tasted, the food was amazing and only matched by the service we received and the whole dining experience was the best we had experienced in NYC.

If we are ever in NYC we will return and would recommend Gallaghers to anyone visiting NYC

Wine by the glass was outrageously expensive.

The porterhouse for two is divine.

They are very accommodating for pre theater but they don’t rush patrons.

This is our favorite special occasion restaurant in NYC. This is a top end steak house. It has all of the most delicious and special things.
This restaurant is a special treat. From the moment you walk through the door you know this will be a special meal. The wait staff was very knowledgeable, and extremely accommodating. We ordered a seafood platter which in fact could have been our dinner, but it wasn’t. It had a large lobster tail, 4 large shrimp, a big pile of lump crab meat, 4 clams and 4 oysters. It was fabulous. Then we moved onto dinner, two ribeye steaks cooked to perfection ! Everything was outstanding. We had a special baked potato with gruyere cheese which was fabulous!
I highly recommend this steak house

Had made reservation requesting private booth for 2 for early 4:30pm reservation (restaurant practically empty when we arrived), was told no because the restaurant would be too busy. Yet, saw private booths with only 2 people at the height of the dinner hour. Had 2 servers - Will & Melvin. Will was competent but did nothing but complain about lack of utensils and napkins at our table & how many tables kept being assigned to him. Melvin, on the other hand, was drama-free, attentive, responsive & provided excellent service. And he was professional even when Will would “joke” that things were not as they should be (which had nothing to do with us or Melvin so I don’t know why Will felt the need to say anything about the workings of the restaurant). Food was excellent. Even though we did not get the table requested, we had a good time due to Melvin’s service and great food.
