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.

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.

What a disappointment. We need and deserve a great steak house on the West Side. This isn’tt It. Sadly, each iteration of Lincoln Square Stead (after the wonderful Lou restaurant) under new owners has been worse than the previously one. My friend had a fillet mignon - it was as dry as sand. Of course, the filet is the steak with the least fat, but this was ridiculous. And my veal job was tough and dry. Mostly inedible. The side vegetables were tasteless. And the servers are poorly trained and disappear.

This was our second time there, about a year apart. Both experiences were outstanding, but this last was the best. They knew it was our anniversary and were so solicitous that it made the evening even more special. The rib eye and prime rib were the best we've ever had. We highly recommend this restaurant!!

Service was good. Sides were also good. Steak was overcooked, I asked for medium rate for my filet mignon and received something just about medium. Also, there was an overhead light that kept turning itself off and on which was quite distracting, I thought the staff was playing with the lighting at first. Probably won't go back, there are better steakhouses close by.

Lobster was hard to crack with the utensil provided and the prime rib had some tough moments

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.

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.

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.
