Recommended.The steak I got was very delicious as I expected. The whole meal was just not a 5 star experience. Steaks are cook to perfection. It was worth it for the price. I will come back next time.

A place you gotta try if you're just visiting NYC. Really appreciated the relax atmosphere and delicious food. Get the steak for two, medium done, you won't regret it.

We went there because my son saw a video about the “kobe steak wrapped in foil” and it was his birthday wish to try it. The food was delicious, we had a great time, service was awesome and they even write Happy Birthday on his dessert plate with a candle. We were 5 and we were all highly satisfied with the dinner and desserts.

Considering this is a steak house, the meat was terrible. Did not taste like a steak, an overabundance of fat did not help.

We came for a birthday and the Kobe steak. The vibe was very weird for a steak house, people were in sweat pants, so there is no dress code. Getting our drink order took a while, but after that everything was good. I made my reservations a month early, and they had to set our tables up when we got there and they sat us by the door in front of the bar. I mean there is a whole back room, but IDK maybe it's the pandemic effects. The food was good oysters rockefeller were salty, salmon ceviche was salmon tartare but delicious, calamari was good. The wild mushroom risotto was a little watery and needed some salt or something else, but it was fine. I got kobo tenderloin and it was delicious, and I am glad to say I finally ate it. They were skimp on the asparagus which were also very hard. The lobster Mac and cheese uses a smokey cheese, it was not my thing, but my boyfriend liked it. Tiramisu was tiramisu. All the cocktails were good and strong. My experience was not bad, but it was nothing extraordinary and when you spend 800$ on a meal, there should be some pizzazz. I'd recommend going there for an early dinner, in your sneakers for the Kobe experience and leaving. No need for an evening event because the ambiance didn't portray that.

The steak is good, my husband always compliments on how good it is, but the salt level is insanely high on their dishes and all of their prices is without sides, you have to get sides separately from the dish which I think is very pricey given that the inside isn’t of a five star restaurant for the 5 star prices

Get everything except dessert! Oysters were so fresh calamari was the best ive had. The burrata salad was AMAZING, the mushroom risotto was cooked perfectly the lobster linguini was excellent and the steak was the best part it was butter, i got the tasting whihc is 3 cuts but next time ill either get the tenderloin or the ribeye as a whole portion. The only thing that fell a little short was the coffee and dessert it was ehh the coffee was not hot and the creme brulee was half filled and not as good at other places.

The atmosphere and the servers at this restaurant are extremely nice but we were rather disappointed with the food. We chose to come to 212 Steakhouse because of their halal options but the taste of the steak was a complete let down. It was not cooked the way I requested and overall was not a satisfying dish. The caesar salad dressing had incredibly strong taste of the anchovies which we did not like- but this is a personal preference.
Overall, we felt 212 Steakhouse did not live up to the expectations especially at their price point.

Our first visit to 212 Steakhouse was just a delightful experience. They are located right around the corner from us and we had never dined there. We ate in their outside seating on a very cold January night. There were a couple more safely spaces tables with guests. The food was top notch from beginning to end. Service was gracious and prompt. We may never have discovered this restaurant if it weren’t for their well lit and heated outdoor dining area. This definitely will be a regular dining destination for us! Btw- I’m a veg and the truffle risotto was amazing!

We eat at all of the high end steakhouses whenever we travel and this is hands down the best. So good that we came back twice. Steaks (wagyu and Kobe) are incredible! My wife eats chicken everywhere we go and even their chicken may be the best chicken I’ve ever eaten! If I want a steak and I’m in the city, I won’t go anywhere else. Highly recommend 212!!

I visited for my boyfriend’s birthday back in January. He loves steak and this place was one of few that served authentic Kobe beef. Needless to say, he absolutely loved it. The portion sizes for the steak look small, but are quite filling. My boyfriend was adequately stuffed by the time he finished his meal. He partnered his steak with some mashed potatoes, which he also liked.

I had the lobster bisque and lobster linguine. Both were cooked perfectly and looked as mouthwateringly delicious as it tasted.

Our waiter was so kind and very knowledgeable of all the wines and dishes available. I can’t remember the red he recommended, but it paired perfectly with my boyfriend’s steak and my lobster pasta.

It was a little chilly to start because indoor dining was not yet available, but once our heat lamp was turned on, we warmed up pretty fast.

We had no more room in our bellies for dessert, but did leave wanting for more of what 212 had to offer. We hope to dine here again soon.

Great service and good food.
It’s covid time. So there outdoor dinning setup is not bad. But it’s not warm what we expected.
