About Gallaghers Steakhouse - Manhattan

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.

Excelente la comida. Muy buenos sabores. El precio es muy elevado pero vale la pena. Un poco ruidoso. Mozos amables.

We were in NYC celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary and chose Gallagher’s based on its on-line reviews and its proximity to our hotel. Also, I had been there once before, many years ago, and had been impressed. On our recent visit I felt the food was ok, but certainly nothing special. The wine list was extensive but at least 85 % of the bottles were priced at over $100. Also, the restaurant was exceedingly noisy making table conversation difficult. On the positive side the wait staff was very personable and attentive and made every effort to make the evening special.

I heard lots of good things about this restaurant from a Facebook group for NYC. Booked it for our anniversary when we were visiting at the weekend. Service was great, ambiance was perfect and the food was top notch! To top it off we received a small cake for two and a song from the waiters for our celebrations! I could not fault this place at all. Not cheap but 100% worth it

Food was amazing and service impeccable. The portions were large and enable the diner to share. Steak was cooked to perfection. The service was outstanding. Thanks to Adam our waiter who took the time to answer every question and make sure we were taken care of. Will definitely be back and will be sure to recommend the restaurant.

We celebrated my nieces 13th birthday at this landmark restaurant. The maître d and servers could not have been more gracious. The steaks and filet mignon were excellent. The Gallagher's potato chips excellent. The piped in music adds to the atmosphere. They surprised my niece with a personal birthday cake, which was very special. New Yorkers may have a reputation for being unfriendly and abrupt. This is absolutely not the case at Gallagher's. Thank you for a memorable 13th birthday and a great meal.

We ordered the porterhouse for 2, it was a great cut of meat but a little bland for my liking. We ordered it medium-rare and it was definitely more rare, still delicious. The creamed spinach was absolutely amazing. We also ordered Mac-n-cheese, is was just ok, very blah for the price and caliber of restaurant. We had the cheesecake for dessert and it was so good, it had fresh strawberries in a strawberry glaze, unlike most glazed strawberries that have been sitting in it forever.
Overall our experience was very good.

Great NY steakhouse. Unfortunately, we had a table upstairs where it’s quiet and not as “fun” as sitting downstairs. My next time there, I’ll insist on a table downstairs where all the liveliness is

My wife and I were in NY for a trade show and wanted to have a nice steak dinner, we found Gallagher’s on here. The place was very cool, sort of old school steak house with an upbeat vibe. The service was excellent. Only issue was my steak which I ordered medium rare came out well done. They were immediately sorry, the manager came over and apologized- all good, mistakes happen, but the new steak took forever to come out. When it finally did, it was good but not great. They offered a free fruit plate as dessert in compensation which was a decent gesture.
Overall a cool place and the food was good, noise level was fine and service was very good. We would go back.

First impressions were great
Our starters were excellent and the waiter was doing a great job
My steak however was very poor. I could barely cut through it even with the steak knife provided and most pieces I ate had very chewy sinew
Really disappointed

Classic NYC steak house. All parties enjoyed all dishes. I had to eat light because I had a presentation to make. I went back the next night to get what I really wanted, and was very satisfied.

After 15 years, Gallagher's is still my go to New York steakhouse. Gallagher's Steakhouse was a must for my return visit to New York and the ideal place to take my Valentine. The prime rib was delicious, as always. The service was impeccable.
