Great for family or friends get together. A gracious waitress, excellent service, great food and live music made it memorable. Why do anywhere else!
I brought my parents there for their first time in 30 years and they were just as impressed. It's very rare that a restaurant maintains quality over such a period.
I've been to Knickerbocker so many times I am running our of superlatives. The steaks are as good as anywhere in NYC for less money. ALL the other food we had including the Scallops were just perfect. Sides were great (truffle bleu cheese fries -OMG), chocolate soufflé was insanely good, Erin is the best server, very attentive and bubbly and just fun. I love this place and anyone who lives in the neighborhood knows that you don't last 40+ years with the following they have without being a top notch restaurant.
We went for an indulgence, a hamburger at lunch. The hamburger was excellent, equal to the indulgence and having it at Knickerbocker made it even more wonderful. A treasure.
Food consistently good. Tbone for 2 was delicious and price similar to others for steak but nice that sides are included.
The place was outstanding, food service and price. Will return soon.
I’ve been going to Knickerbocker for over 30 years and still is one of the best restaurant s in Manhattan!!!
I've dined at Knickerbockers for over 30 years, enjoying it each time over these many years. It's located in my old neighborhood and I return as if I'm still living in the area. It's one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants.
Food here is too often mediocre. Even Bloody Mary mix was off.
Service was terrific, food excellent, and they make a great Bloody Mary
Was disappointed in the availability of varied wine, Limited and not top quality of what they did have. Service was friendly and prompt - tho it wasn't very busy. Will eat there again.
The “famous” T bone steaks were terrible. But the worst part is that a large waitress (not ours) tripped over my 6 year old son and yelled angrily, after she was rude to all the other waitresses, too. Never ever again.
Excellent as always.
I love the Knickerbocker!
Whenever I need to entertain out of towners I bring them to enjoy this neighborhood gem. The dining room is comfortable with large round booths. The pub and bar are friendly. When I’m alone I head for the bar room.
Heard about and saw other reviews. Good service and food, good value. Will go again.
Roast Giannone chicken was delicious! Perfectly cooked and marvelously spiced
Nice place to celebrate a birthday or other event.. comfortable, low stress, neighborhood place with long history
Always a solid and perfect meal. From being greeted at the door to our service
Top notch as always!
The food quality was poor and the time to receive it at the table was long. When it did arrive the Chicken Pot Pie was inedible, a nasty mess of diced vegetables and shredded chicken in a heavy cream sauce, the best thing about it was the pastry on the top. The final straw was being told that they didn't serve Burgers on Friday and Saturday (unless you were sitting by the bar). Last time I will go there.....
Good food, traditional New York. Mostly old people from the neighborhood, which is fine with me since the food is good, portions generous, and you can have a conversation.
It was wonderful
First date was there on 3-23-12
My wife and I have been going to Knickerbocker since we were dating, and we've now been married 26 years. The food is always good, the service always attentive. I love the ambiance of the place because it's reminiscent of "old New York". I half expect to see Fiorello LaGuardia at the next table. Old fashioned banquettes and white table cloth tables. A little too crowded sometimes (we were there for Valentine's Day) but the steak is always great.
Came here to enjoy their famous T-bone steak for one. I asked for it to be served whole while my significant other had it cut up before it was brought out. The white ceramic plate that it came on kept the steak nice and warm through the course of my meal. The two sides kept me eating when I normally would stop.
Wonderful food and fantastic atmosphere. Live jazz was great, not too loud. Service attentive and friendly.
Getting together with friends at the Knick is always pleasurable and comfortable. Everything on the menu is wonderful.
A true New York City institution. Always a great time at this handsome restaurant.
Comfortable place with good food.. too much salt used but otherwise fine
Always good- that’s why we eat here a lot.
Delightful. Food was excellent. Looking forward to my next visit.
Love this place!
Always a great meal.
diverse menu, consistent quality, not over the top pricing, service is good
Food was great as usual service was a little slow and uncoordinated. Wonderful restaurant
Dependable food great service. Becoming a Village institution.
we had several people with allergies in our party. the waitress was so attentive so as not to have any contamination with the food that it was very impressive. she made sure the bread was cut with a brand new clean knife. she made sure that a new bottle of jelly was used with a clean spoon so that no dairy or egg material would have touched this. I have never seen anything like that before. I did not get her name, but she was wonderful.
I’ve been going to this place since the 1970’s. Charming decor. Decent food. Pleasant servers.
The food and service is always great! I have frequented this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed.
excellent/was there for New Years Eve and it was lovely!
