We went for Easter Sunday dinner and ordered from the prix fixe menu. The Dover Sole was delicious as was the ginger carrot soup that I had. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. The service was perfect. Would definitely recommend it!

We had the specials that are for 1 week only, the 2 + 1/2 lb lobster and the prime rib special.
Lobster was hard to crack with the utensil provided and the prime rib had some tough moments
but overall both dishes were good.

The moment you walk in the door of this restaurant and hear the sounds of the grand piano greeting you all the hustle and bustle of the streets of New York City melt away. You are escorted to a lovely two-tier dining room where the tables are adorned with white tablecloths. The table spacing allows for private conversation unlike many New York restaurants where the tables are so close together you can hear people next to you breathing. The service was the best we have ever received. Every waiter is attentive to your every need even if it isn't their table. The maitre d, the manager, and a few others that we don't even know their title would stop by to make sure that everything was to our liking and if we were enjoying ourselves. Our glasses were at all times kept full. They were attentive to our every need. The food arrived quickly and our steaks were cooked to perfection. We are so glad we chose this restaurant. We were headed to the Beacon Theater afterward and it was only a six minute walk to the theater from the restaurant making for a perfect evening. We would highly recommend making reservations at this restaurant and enjoying, not just a wonderful meal, but great ambience, music, and service.

Have Celebrated many birthdays here so this was not the first time. Disappointed in the steak, the roll was tasteless, and service was not great. Just not up to what we expect. Usually, birthday is recognized with a candle or plate of cookies but nothing was even mentioned. A slight discrepancy in the bill brought the maitre'd over and we expressed our disappointment in the dinner. She was very understanding and reduced the bill which was greatly appreciated, and then surprised us with a selection of cookies to take home. Unfortunately, I really like a great steak and this was just not it.

Food was fantastic!
We arrived at 6:45 and they told us we were in time for the early bird--before 7PM. I had no idea.
So, we all ordered a delicious 3 course dinner for $45. Plus, a good glass of wine for an additional
$5.00. WOW! This was great.
I would definitely return!!!

Food was outstanding. We had the Tomahawk steak - perfectly done, taste was absolutely out of this world. Live jazz trio at the bar which was fantastic. The only thing that would help this place out is to draw some of the crowd away from the neighbohood place next door. Tone down the lights in the bar area and replace the tables in the window with lounge essentials (velvet / plush / tufted couches, chairs and low tables to allow for more intimate conversation) making it a great place to meet up for drinks and perhaps stay for dinner. Maybe swing by for an after dinner drink and watch the band. Ditch the red wall paint and opt for darker tones to give the place more of a speakeasy vibe. The food is the main ingredient for any great established, but the ambiance needs some work to make it a true nieghborhood gem.

I never write reviews but this time I will. We were really disappointed over our last visit. We always go there for all of our specail occasions. Potato pure felt like it was out of a box. Other vegetables were not good either. Steak was great though. !! At the end the manager said we wanted to order you a desert but I am not sure which one you would like. I am gonne give you the menu to chose one and I will take care of it. At the end they charged it. We didn't ask for a desert ourselves. We won't go back. Miss how they were taking your photo at the end.

Unusually disorganized service for LSS. The dining room was not very busy but it took 15 minutes from ordering a glass of wine before it was received. Server was uncertain about items on the menu. Server had all meals mixed up, offering the incorrect meal to the diners. One of the individuals asked for the blue cheese and dressing to be left on the side. When the salad arrived, the cheese was on top. Server was reminded of the request, so he took 2 of the forks at the table and scooped the cheese off rather than take the salad back to the kitchen. Another individual kept having the servers hit the chair she was sitting in as they passed by. There were several other mishaps all leading to the conclusion that the service was not good. Will probably not return.

Service was spotty to lacking. Steak ordered medium rare came medium well. Servers didn’t keep track of who ordered what and had to keep asking as they passed out every course! More like a diner than an upscale steakhouse! We were not made to feel special at all, even though we had a table of 7 and ordered multiple bottles of champagne and wine and three courses each and had a celebrity at our table. I wouldn’t go back. Oy. Too bad. I hosted the table so it looked bad on my part.

LSS is very delicious, excellent wines by the glass, brussell sprouts that are carmelized, crispy, sweet, tangy, and with bits of bacon that add so much to the flavor. My NY Strip was a little tough, and my date had to send his back as it was undercooked. Came back perfectly cooked, yet way too tough for the price. The parmesan fries are delicious. Very relaxed atmosphere as you are not on top of other diners, and the live piano band is so great. I will go back.

The waitstaff was great but the food was just ok. We had a 3.5 lbs lobster broiled and a 24 oz tomahawk steak with sides of mushrooms and brussel sprouts. The steak and lobster we both “eh” but the sides were very tasty. Also, there whiskey and bourbon selection was lacking. When you get some of the most expensive things on (or off) the menu they should be spectacular and I assure you We were not impressed.
