My wife and I both ordered the Filet mignon medium. Mine came out rare and hers came out burnt and very well done. I had to send mine back and it was nice to see the waitress check her notes to see that I really ordered medium before she would agree to take it back to the kitchen, as if I was making it up. We both had a salad before the main course. Must have been a slow night because from ordering to “ have a nice night on your way out” was a hour and 15 mins, and that was only because we stayed and talked for 20 Minutes. The way the waitress threw my change on the table as she was flying past without a word of thanks made it clear that a 18% tip on the total bill, including on the $60 bottle of wine was not sufficient in her eyes. Speaking of wine, they like to uncork the bottle at the bar so you never see it opened nor a look at the cork.

To be fair, I have been here at least a dozen times over 2 years, but things seem to be going down hill because I do not recall this happening before.

Good Afternoon Joseph, We are so sorry about this. We would love to know the name of the waitress that evening: we are going to have to address their attitude towards customers and make some changes since this is not at all the service we pride ourselves on. We hope you'll give us another chance, and we look forward to showing you what Mac's is all about. Thank you for your feedback, Leanne Verity Manager

It was Mother’s Day so I was expecting it to be crowded, but that was not the case. It was fairly empty and yet the service was terrible. We were given the wrong soup of the day (which we ordered) and received completely different soup. Never received bread. After asking twice for drink refills we had to grab another waiter. We waited 30 minutes for our dinner after they cleared the apps. I never complain, but this was really awful. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Good Afternoon, We did over 300 reservations on Mother's Day, so the restaurant was not empty. As for your soup, we did immediately rectify it. We're sorry you didn't enjoy your experience, and the waitress you had is under review for her lack of performance.

Went for the lunch special. The steak foccacia sandwich was amazing. I ordered the lobster bisque and lobster mac & cheese. Both were acceptable, but nothing great. I was turned off by the cut up bagels they served as bread.

We dined in the private wine room, set for 8 of us. It was a wonderful intimate dinner shared with family and friends. Fried calamari was perfectly seasoned, Fresh tuna and avocado appetizer was to die for.

Martinis were very large and well shaken (something that you NEED for a dirty martini), and the Ribeye and porterhouse steaks were cooked to perfection at medium rare.

Overall our family had a fantastic time and the service was top notch, especially considering the dining room was completely full the entire time we were there. Kudos to the staff for making sure we didn’t feel neglected throughout.

Thank you again, we will be back!

Upon arrival we were shown to a table for two that was crammed in between two other tables. The area was so tight that neither chair had enough room to move away from the table and both chair backs were resting upon other guests’ chairs on either side. I attempted to sit down, but my inability to move my chair left my abdomen pressed against the table. When our server came over to introduce herself, we informed her of the situation and requested a new table. She said she would need to speak to her manager regarding a solution. After a very brief wait, she returned to the table and told us the manager had refused to relocate us to a different table and suggested that we go eat at the bar instead. Since continuing the date with my wife at the bar was not how we desired to enjoy a meal together, we were forced to leave the restaurant. We were then faced with finding a new venue, on a Friday night without a reservation. The most bothersome and disappointing aspect of this whole experience was that absolutely no legitimate attempt was made to fix our situation. The decision to deny relocating us was made in an instant and the manager didn’t even come over to us directly to deliver the verdict and/or offer an apology for the inconvenience.

Good Evening, My name is Leanne and I am the Manager who did come to your table and apologize that we didn't have another table. The restaurant was fully booked, and every single table was accounted for or seated. As a restaurant, we do our best to accommodate everyones needs, and we're sorry that you didn't like your placement. This review is unfair, especially considering you didn't eat. But, thank you for your feedback and have a great night.

They were short staffed and I really respect that the hostess jumped in to help the servers and bused tables. I food was a bit disappointing. I had the lobster bisque which was delicious. Everything else was bland. The short ribs were very tender, but had no flavor. I don't know that I would go back outside of restaurant week.

Tuesday night dinner, we were the only people in there, been here before, but this time was a very poor experience, the place smelled musty when we walked in, the canon on the wedge salad was old, the filet mignon was dry, we would of been better off cooking a steak from target. Nothing was to speak for, banana foster was burnt and rubbery. You would think when they are slow the food would be better because the chef isn’t rushed, but instead he gave us the old leftovers with a $300 bill. Better off going to insignia, at least the food is good with a comparable price.

Old world charm greets you as you enter Mac's Steakhouse. There is a lively bar to the left and an elegant dining room to the right. A fabulous dining experience awaits you. Our favorite appetizers are the meatballs and the ceasar salad. The entrees are impressive . The diet mignon is buttery soft and cooked perfectly . The creamed spinach is the best. Salmon with risotto is a great choice for fish lovers. Desserts are beyond the earthly realm.

I have had a problem EVERY time with this restaurant when Ive booked with OpenTable, do yourself a favor and skip them, there are plenty of better restaurants in Huntington Village. I hate for this to impact the servers and the chef, but Ive had it with the lack of customer service from management.

Hey Karen, I'm so sorry you feel this way. I checked on the reservation on the 24th in our opentable system, and it looks like you cancelled your reservation, so I'm not sure what problem you had. We hosted a party of 100 that Sunday, and had plenty of reservations outside of that without any problems. Thanks for the positive feedback on our food and service, and we hope you have a great day.

A true carnival of errors. New inexperienced waitstaff that didn’t even know how to open up a bottle of wine and how to pour yet alone, sample the requested bottle. Food orders were also mixed up and steak temperatures were not as requested. Wait staff was eager to remove appetizer plates while others at the table were still consuming their appetizers.
It’s unfortunate that this particular steakhouse in the Town Of Huntington has received notoriety for its poor service but now, after having dined there, I need to concur. It is a fairly expensive restaurant and if I’m going to spend that much money on a steak dinner, I’ll be at Bryant and Cooper’s.
The ambience is actually quite nice and subdued however, carpets need to be shampooed and cleaned as they were sticky, likely from steak juice or other spilled items

I have dined many times at Mac's Steakhouse and have been more than satisfied. The Restaurant Week experience was below their standards. My husband and I invited another couple to dine with us and we all were very disappointed. The menu selections were not of the quality of their regular menu. Service was spotty. They ran out of wine and cocktail glasses so we had red wine in white wine glasses and a White Russian was served in what looked like a soda glass. The silverware at each place setting didn't match. We took it all in good humor since we knew they were over extended, we live in the area and know the restaurant. However, I think more planning is needed next time Restaurant Week comes around and Mac's decides to participate.
