Gallaghers Steakhouse - Manhattan
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.
The food was excellent! The service was close to excellent - not in a bad way I just believe our waiter had too many tables at once. No complaints and deff will go back!
We visited Gallaghers in Las Vegas and loved the experience & obviously the food, so with travelling to New York & 2nd visit was a must! I have to add it didn’t disappoint either, friendly staff and lovely food, I would highly recommend!
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.
New favorite spot in the city. Food was superb. Service top notch.
I would recommend Gallagher’s in the future.
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 an an Absolutely perfect dinner!! The steak and prime rib was superb. The entire meal was perfectly seasoned, no salt or pepper needed. I can't wait to go back.
The quality was outstanding as it usually is. It is a must stop for us when in NYC. Friendly and welcoming. Not stuffy like high end quality restaurants can be.
Excellent steak and service. Also very nice wine selection.
Very classic New York vibes. Expensive, but not too bad for a steakhouse in Midtown. We went for lunch and got to sit back and be treated to lots of amazing food and awesome service.
Great menu, friendly efficient service and delicious food!
The servers are attentive. The food is prepared to please the customer. The decor is festive for this time of the year.
Before theatre lunch
Delicious food. Excellent waitstaff, made sure we were n time for show.
Pre theater matinee price five lunch. Great value and everything ordered was amazing as was our server PJ! The round corner table for six made this a fabulous lunch and we will definitely come back
Very nice place, great service, amazing food def I will go back!
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.
I've been going here over the last 30 years. When I changed hands I was apprehensive, but turns out it is greatly improved in almost every way but they maintained and improved the pictures and just about everything.
Steaks were not cooked to what was ordered. One was over cooked and one was way under cooked. Waiter was great!
The reception area leaves a lot to be desired- and the maitre di is arrogant and acts like you are lucky to be there. After a long wait to be seated, the service and food are the very best
We celebrated my mother’s birthday at Gallagher’s and had a wonderful experience. The service was superb! We had an 8:00 show and were concerned that we might not have given ourselves enough time, but once we were seated we had no problem enjoying our meal with plenty of time. Great ambiance!
Expensive but worth it! Great food and service.
I am 70 and I was visiting from Florida. Last time there I was 8. The food was fantastic, prepared exactly as requested. The server, Randy was very attentive, great personality. The entire experience was wonderful
It was amazing as always. I having been dining at Gallagher’s since I was a kid, 40-so e years ago when my parents took us to NYC to see broadway shows. Over the years, it has never disappointed.
The server team was incredible and very knowledgeable. The host staff was caring and went out of their way to make us feel important. The ambiance and history of this establishment is wonderful and the food was incredible!
Great steaks in a very nice environment. The service was excellent. We went after a Broadway show. Reservations recommended.
Glad we booked as the restaurant was packed from early evening until we left at 22:00, Rick our waiter was great and the steaks were superb, will definitely go back again.
Fantastic Steak - best I have ever eaten. The view into kitchen is extraordinary.
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.....
Food and service were excellent. Noise from bar made conversation difficult at dinner table, but otherwise, it was a great experience. Good size portions, high-quality food and excellent service. AND extremely accommodating in holding our leftovers for pick up after theater. We'll be back.
Fab food and service super knowledgeable server would highly recommend
Celebrated my wife’s “2 birthday! Outstanding service and NYC ambiance. Everything was perfect.
Gianni and Soto served us and were excellent.
Enjoyed it very much. From Texas👍🏻
Visited Gallachers on our last night and although it is a bit pricey it was well worth it. Food amazing and service fab! Very busy so lots of ambience. Server was very helpful also.
Everything was great - exactly how it had been described to me! Just note, if you are looking for a more quiet dining experience don't sit in the bar area. It can get loud.
Cesar, the waiter that attend us, was incredible.
Helped us to chose the better steak for our family.
