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.

Meatquality is excellent. However the tomahawk steak for 2, ordered as medium rare, was maximum rare with a big cold center! And it was not only us. There were some other complaints at the same time. We saw it because we were sitting right in front of the grill.

Took a girls trip to New York from Buffalo to celebrate our 40th Birthdays! We wanted to go to a nice dinner and came across Gallaghers in an online search for steakhouses. My girlfriends and I really enjoyed this experience!! The food was excellent and our waiter, Soto, was awesome! Soto really made this a fun and enjoyable experience. Atmosphere was great as well. Upscale restaurant with a touch of elegance, yet relaxed atmosphere. Would highly recommend this restaurant and will make it a point to return here on my next visit to New York!

My wife and I had dinner reservations, and when we checked in were offerred a high top in the bar area. In retrospect, we should have wsited for a table. The bar was very congested on a Saturday night, and passers-by kept hitting the back of my stool. Otherwise a great dinner.

My husband loves a good old-fashioned steakhouse so this was perfect for his 50th birthday dinner! While we waited the bartender made me a Mosco Mule and it was hands down the best cocktail I've ever had!

The food was great and brought out in a timely manner. We didn’t feel rushed and we had time to digest each course. The staff was great and very attentive but not overbearing. Great atmosphere and we were seated within minutes of arriving for our reservation.

First time at a New York steakhouse and we were not disappointed!It was everything we expected and more. Looked after by a great group of servers, and the food, from bread to dessert, was faultless. Main was a beautiful piece of bone in rib, with a mighty fine NY cheesecake to finish. Couldn’t fault the evening...we’ll worth the 47 years it took to get there!

The rib steak is fantastic! The hash browns are really just re-fried French fries...but the steak more than makes up for it.

An old school steakhouse that has been renovated and revived at the same time. Still has a charming steak house feel polished up very nicely. Been here a bunch and the food is always great. The lunch special price fix is a good value with very good size portions. And try the home made potato chips.

We ate here on our recent NYC visit. We have eaten at many upscale steakhouses in many different cities. I choose this restaurant because of great reviews and recommendations from friends. We just felt like the restaurant was ok. The steaks were outstanding but our services was much to be desired. I ordered a medium rare filet and it was over cooked. The waiter did bring another steak instantly and it was delicious. The noise level was high because it is a large restaurant and packed on Thursday night. The side dishes were ok. This restaurant is expensive and I feel we should have better service.

This was one of my worst experiences dining at a higher end restaurant in NYC. My wife and I go out all over Long Island and NYC for nice meals. This was the worst. We were warned to not go here but wanted to try it anyway. The brought me a bone-in filet that was cooked well and dry when I wanted one to be medium rare. They took it back and apologized while my wife ate so her food wouldn’t get cold. This made for an awkward date. They brought the food back out with new sides and another bone in filet that I couldn’t even cut through not only did it have a thick tendon/fat down the middle it also was rare/raw with the outside just seared. They brought it back to Cook it more and they just torched the outside some more making a bad experience even worse. They sent over about 5 people to apologize and even paid our bill for us. I can certainly say I will never go back to Gallaghers there are far better places to eat in NYC such as Wolfgang’s/quality meats/strip house/or a dozen other places. Even with a check that the restaurant paid for I was left in a bad mood from a bad experience on a night my wife and I got a babysitter wanted to have a romantic evening - so buyer beware.

Ordered chopped salad - which was ok. & pork chops & filet mignon and sent back both because both underdone from our medium orders. Mushroom garlic sauce wax very good. The Bernaise had a weird metallic taste. Fried Onion rings were a disappointment. Overall a meh dinner. Not sure I’d go back. But the waiters were very nice & attentive.

Really good food, the only bad notes is we felt little rushed by the server .. we told him we wanted to take our time but each course came too fast. Also we were seated about few inches from another couple, meanwhile they’re were a lot of other seats available. The best part of the night was bartender Paul made us one of the best old fashioned of nyc.
