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.

The service was AMAZING!!! I felt like our waiters were good at watching cues and came to the table at the right times. The food was okay. I absolutely loved the crab cake appetizer, but was very underwhelmed by the steak. Although it was cooked perfectly medium rare, it lacked taste. I NEVER use steak sauce as I see it as an insult to a well cooked steak. This time I did not use steak sauce either...only because Gallagher’s special steak sauce tasted like some type of fancy ketchup mix. I expect more than ketchup for what I paid for this meal.

I would like to reiterate, WONDERFUL service. I hope my waiters move on to restaurants that serve food worth 5-star prices.

62 Birthday. Food was good however 2 waiters collided and spilled coke, water and beer on one of us. All they did was give her 2 towels to dry herself and that was it. When leaving we spoke to a manager about this and he was unaware but told us to send dry cleaning bills to him. Also on open table I put down special occasion 62 birthday. There was NO acknowledgement of it . We ate had desert and the bill came. We said happy birthday to my wife and the waiters seemed to scramble to get a small token dessert for her. We had already had dessert and were ready to leave. I thought this was very tacky.

The food was excellent. We had two waiters, and they were both top notch... one was much friendlier than the other though. We enjoyed him immensely. The steak was probably the best or close to the best steak I’ve ever had.

I would give them a five star except we had a 6:00 reservation, which we arrived about 10 minutes early for, but we were not seated until 6:30. We had show tickets and managed to make the performance despite the delay.

The food was outstanding! Broccoli rabe is a favorite of mine and not many restaurants offer or do it well. They also had the best baked clam oreganata ever! Many places do them badly. We came to celebrate our anniversary. Had the porterhouse for 2. Everything was excellent. I would return & highly recommend this steakhouse. I recommend making reservations ahead of time. I heard walk-ins having to wait an hour to be seated, and others were told a table would be available at 11pm (our reservation was for 5:45). Even with a reservation we had to wait 20 min for our table to be ready.

Gallaghers sure seemed to be a popular restaurant. Place was completely full at 4:00 pm & those without a reservation were told wait was 1 1/2 hours for a table. We had reservations but did have to wait awhile in spite of that. Server was great & experienced. Food was slow coming out - waited over an hour - but they were busy. Calamari appetizer was awesome ! I ordered filet mignon & baked potato for my meal. I requested medium rare & while the inside was perfect, the outside was far too charred for my liking. Overall our experience was fine but not sure if we would go gack. Not a bad place by any means, just did not find it to be “blow me away” NYC dining.

We were well taken care of during our stay. The staff checked every single detail, but it was a shame that they not have Spanish assistance.

The place and the ambience were according to our expectations; but the food could have improve a bit more; to our taste the steaks were missing a litttle touch of salt; besides that the sides (buttered spinish) and the desert (NY cheese cake) were to die for.

Everything was very good except for steak that was just OK.

The quintessential New York steak house. Amazing food (steaks! Prime dry aged!), done to perfection (try the bone in ribeye for 2, just perfect...), impeccable service, great steak house ambiance (wood panels, photos, cozy atmosphere). Just what you would want in a New York City steak house experience. Staff is very welcoming, service is spot on (always there but not intrusive). Great sides. And great salads. Wonderful open circular bar. We were lucky to be served at the bar by Chris Dziuba (I hope I spelled it correctly), who makes amazing martinis and is such a great Gallagher's ambassador. This place is a gem. We will definitely be going back.....
