Steaks were very tender, but way too salty. I couldn't drink enough water. Service was very good, ambiance just okay. For two people to eat and a $185 tab I expected so much more. I won't go back and I won't recommend.

First Steak way too salty to eat they made us fresh ones although it took so long we weren't hungry once it arrived. So it was more like a waiting experience than a dining experience. Plus the cost was $140 (plus tip) no discount for mistake or waiting so long....would of expected 50%off at least disappointing Valentine's experience.

My boyfriend and I were celebrating our two year anniversary of our first date. We celebrated at Murray’s for the first time last year...it was amazing!! We will be returning every year from now on. Our server Anthony made it a evening to remember, loved his personality, he made us feel like we were his only table, even though we I knew he was very busy. Thank you to him and the entire staff for making our special night even more special. ❤️

Food was just ok. Butter Knife steak was tough and not flavorful. Won’t be back.

The early bird menu 5-6 p.m. Sunday-Thursday is great with an option of steak or salmon. Both are excellent choices.

I had the Ribeye steak - it was one of the best I have ever had - on the same level as my best steak at Peter Luger’s in New York. We had a great server (Dani) - it was an early valentine dinner with the love of my life. We had a great time and a great meal.

The food was delicious and the service wonderful. Our waitress recommended a very good wine to pair with the silver butter knife steak and she was spot on. I left my gift card behind and they located it for me and are going to send it on. Really went above and beyond. It was my birthday so they brought out a small dessert. Very nice touch

This was truly a wonderful meal. We were seated way back on the right. At first I was not overjoyed an=bouyt the location but it turned but great, quiet, cozy, like our own mafia table. Our server was Greg who was studying to be a sommelier. He was knowledgeable, attentive but not overbearing. He helped us pick great dinner wine (Staglin '13). We started with snakes and bacon wrapped shrimp. The snails were fantastic the shrimp were slightly overcooked represent the lone wee flaw in an otherwise perfect meal (makes you appreciate the goodness). We both had lobster bisque with an impressive amount of lump lobster. We split the porterhouse, done perfect medium rare and very flavorful. Sides were the Seasonal Vegetable (Brussels Sprouts) and Au Gratin Potatoes, both very reasonably pried and portioned appropriately for 2. Good job Murray's GREAT job Greg!

The place was a bit noisy. Service was pretty good until after we ate, then the waiter kind of "forgot us". The food was great, except the dessert--bread pudding. Looked like it was made in a meatloaf pan, bland, with rubbery dried apricots on it and about a tablespoon of sauce. I make a much better, fresher and FLAVORFUL bread pudding that doesn't look like head cheese and a sauce that actually covers the pudding.

The service was top notch and the food was the usual high quality. We have dined at most of the other steak places downtown and Murray's in tops in our book.

Food was very good and service was great. It got a little loud towards the end when a big table came in and were quite loud, but that was on them, not the restaurant. Overall a great meal and service.

Wonderful experience; love the ambiance and old photos. The 4:00 - 6:00 deals are a good value for 5-star food. Steak melts in your mouth and the au gratin potatoes and garlic toast are old-school delicious.
