Food as always was delicious. I had told them when I made the reservation that is was my guest's birthday. I thought she would get a special "happy birthday dessert" which they have served in the past but she didn't.

Wonderful prix fixe dinner. Nice offer of $5 glass of wine with it. Honored expired Groupon. Kindly provided fruit plate in lieu of prescribed desserts. Miss the scones and desserts on former management’s pre fixe.

Me and my boyfriend are from Sweden and ate for $200 dollars before tip and taxes. The food and service was ok, but it doesn't make any sence that you have to pay this amount of money just to get some helathy food and something that is more than just meat, cheese and fries.

Honestly, I was very surprised to be there on a Friday night at 7:30 and see the place empty, until we started to order. It was Friday night and yet they were out of several things that they should not have been. The service was ok. I ordered a dozen oysters and was served 6. Argued with me that I ordered 6. I was very very disappointed - it's a steak house so it's expensive. The other food (that was not steak) was awful according to tow of the diners. The restaurant will not last. It is huge and empty on a Friday night, not good. I wouldn't go back - too many good steak restaurants in NY.

Overall food quality is sub par for a steakhouse at this price range. Our table of 4 ordered 3 lobsters and 1 tomahawk steak. Waiter came back and told us only 2 lobsters were available, after pitching the lobster special. On top of that we had to return One of the 2 lobsters due to cleanliness issues. They replaced with salmon which was pretty good. and did not charge us which was nice of them. The toasted chicken was so so not bad but def. not good, my wife left most of it on her plate and I tried it also and agree with her. The tomahawk ribeye was so so but not memorable for this price range. I thought the service was okay but because of the poor food quality, we won’t come back again since there are so many choices in the upper west side. The dinner was to celebrate my birthday , the company was great but unfortunately not the food.

had not been here since the new ownership/management (?) and my expectations were not huge. I was pleasantly surprised to find the food very good and the choices on the prix fixe dinner satisfactory. enjoyed the chopped salad very much and the filet and sides of spinach and brussels sprouts excellent and the twinkie made me feel like a little kid-such a cute presentation and quite tasty. and the glass of malbec suited it all. we will return.

Good value in the prix-fixe before 7PM and after 9PM. Excellent option for a pre-show meal before going to the Beacon. Biggest drawback is the limited wine list, which seems odd for a steakhouse. Wait staff is a bit hit or miss as well.

I am guessing there was a chef change since I was there one year ago. The crab cake was different, served lukewarm and did not have a nice sear on top. The popovers from previous visits were replaced with regular bread. The steak was adequate. The Caesar salad was overdressed. The potato gratin is no longer on the menu (it was awesome!). We had the stuffed baked potato which we did not like. We did not stay for dessert. We will not return and will be looking for another steak restaurant.

AnneJ, Firstly, we'd like to thank you for your patronage and your review. We care as much about good reviews as we do bad. Bad reviews give us an opportunity to do over or to correct any perception of bad experience from our establishment. As I'm reading your review, I couldn't help thinking how much we could turn your experience to a more positive one, if you give us another opportunity to do over. Having said that, I would like to invite you back...our compliment. Thank you, Regards, LSS

Steak is steak and no point arguing against it. They were good although a bernaise would have made my filet mignon perfect. Without a sauce it lacked something. Same with the baked potato: cream is too simple and fatty a solution. The greek salad could have been a relief, juicy and fresh. But it was creamy (it should be feta cheese, which is not creamy) and very garlicky. I understand it had tzatziki, but tzatziki is not necessary for this salad. And neither the onion. It should be: cucumber, tomato, feta, olives, oregano, olive oil and lemon. With good quality tomatoes it is a marvel.

My wife and I began our visit at Lincoln Square Steak at the bar prior to our dinner reservation. The bartender is very friendly and efficient. We ordered oysters and had two martinis each. The martinis were a bit dilute but good and the oysters were excellent.

At 7:30 pm we were thoughtfully seated by the manager at a table away from a family with an infant. We remain baffled as why people will bring young children to an upscale restaurant with the good potential that they will become overly tired and disturb other diners.

At first our server (Georgi) was friendly and attentive. My wife had an excellent and generous tuna tartar app and I had a very good carrot-ginger soup. We ordered two grass-fed filet mignon which were rare and the other black and blue as requested as well as extremely tender. The shared side of asparagus was not as impressive due to some stringy sections yet it was mostly fine.

At one point our server mentioned what countries from Europe his relatives were from. When I noted that my mother was from one of the same countries, Georgi made a disparaging comment about "that part of the country" and we noticed he rolled his eyes as he left the table. When he returned later I told his we wondered about his comment and eye roll. He made a lame excuse that he was "kidding" and then added that the southern part of that country had "very poor people" and the people in the north did not think well of them. He apparently did not realize how biased his view was since he wasn't really disagreeing with such attitudes. Georgi then became more scarce. We felt it was totally inappropriate to express such views. One wonders how his feelings affect other staff and customers or if they are sanctioned by the manager/owners of this restaurant. Hopefully, Lincoln Square Steak will "educate" its' staff about such offensive views especially in today's biased political environment. We might return, but would not accept being served by "Georgi".

NYRay, Thank you very much for review! We appreciate your input. The Management team always remind our staff to NEVER discuss Origin, Politics and Religion with our Guests. As we were reading your review to Georgi, he felt really bad about it and he wanted to convey his apologies as well. He was NOT intended to insult, he said. Hopefully in your next visit, we will have an opportunity to apologize in person. We look forward to seeing you soon. Thank you, Best, LSS

What a horrible experience. Bad service all around when only 1/4 of the tables were full. Can’t say what the food quality is because we never got our meal. Had 3 starving kids wait an hour only for the server to tell us the dinner order never went through. We live in the neighborhood and will never come here ever again. This is a bad experience I will never repeat. Overpriced and mediocre all around.

This was our first visit to this steak house and it did not disappoint. The bar is fantastic, and the restaurant is lovely. The tables are spaced so that you aren't on top of another one, and you can have a nice conversation. We 4 had the price fix menu which was an exceptional deal. First the chopped salad was a huge portion and absolutely
Delicious. My 8 oz filet was prepared to perfection with side of spinach that was excellent. My husband had the same 2 first courses but went for the mashed potatoes and was a very happy man. Our friends had pasta which they also raved about.
Do not miss the homemade Twinkie! An incredible treat to finish a wonderful meal. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant on our next trip.

We used to love this restaurant, but this experience was poor. We went early, so we ordered the prix fixe menu. We think our server was not happy with this, and that's why the service was bad. We were in a hurry to get to a show, but our server wouldn't come to give us the bill. We finally took our credit card to him and then had to wait and wait until he finally brought the check. The food was also poor. Salmon was undercooked and the filet was overcooked.
