Food incredibly underseasoned, underwhelming, and ill prepared. Waiter was inattentive to us although there were only 6 tables seated at the time we were there.

The service was really good, the food presentation were beautiful, and portion of food were big, but the foods were too salty that our tongues hurt. Another thing is that they have a Payment Terminal so the server was standing next to you watching you tip them. That machine had tipping option only from 18% and above, while our company policy allows tipping only up to 15%...

My 13 year old son wanted to try the real Kobe beef at the only Kobe certified restaurant on the east coast. I had the Kobe sampler while he went for the Kobe tenderloin. The beef was as good as advertised (we’ve had certified Japanese A5 wagyu previously), the presentation was excellent and the meat was cooked perfectly to medium rare. The price per oz was a great value for real Japanese Kobe. The dining room was spacious with the tables well spaced. Staff was attentive but did not rush us.

For sides we had the truffles mash potatoes and the Brussels sprouts.

If you are seeking a more authentic New York
neighborhood steakhouse experience than Del Friscos or even the touristy air of Old Homestead or Smith’s, I highly recommend 212 Steakhouse.

This restaurant is too far away from the places many visitors to NYC want to see (Broadway, Times Square, etc.) The prices on steaks were very prohibitive, unless you were on an expense account.

EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING !!!!! THE kobe steak literally melted in your mouth. It was AMAZING ! THE lamb chops melted in your mouth as well. The staff was friendly and cater to our needs. Its a must for you to visit this place at least once in your life. The ambiance was romantic and yet casual at the same time. It was weird but PERFECT weird. PLEASE GO

The total experience was okay with good service and atmosphere. The truffle mashed potatoes and the mussels were tasteful.
The 212 premium selection for two was mediocre because of our Australian wagyu didn’t have any flavor . It seemed not a fresh beef and frankly , a bit unappetizing.

The Kobe beef was good tasting, but perhaps a bit greasy for my taste.
Soup, salad and desert were excellent; I did not try the side dishes

Our experience was awesome. We had the AUSTRALIAN WAGYU BONE-IN RIBEYE 32 OZ FOR TWO. It was SERIOUSLY delicious. Tender and Flavorful!! It's five days later, and we still talkin' bout it, and about to line up another reservation thru OPEN TABLE. The bread was phenomenal also. Ambience was real nice. We chose to sit by the window. One real nice accommodating feature was available street parking after 7pm. 212 has moved into our top 3 when in the mood for steak

Absolutely delicious, fantastic experience. My husband ate the Kobe beef and described it as mouth watering, buttery, and decadent. I had the Lobster dynamite and it was out of this world. The sirracha is not overpowering. The meat was buttery, slightly sweet, and juicy!

Awesome food and service! The bone-in ribeye was a killer and I was drooling for more, the skirt steak was over cooked and I didn’t get any steak sauce that’s why I gave it 4 stars but the ribeye was as perfect as it could be! The server was great at recommending wine and we really enjoyed the Riesling! Top of my list so far

This place was great for my friends that loved steak, they’ve been wanting to try it for a long time. It was excellent, service was great. We loved everything we tried from lobster bisque, beet salad (special), lobster Mac & cheese was to die for!! And then the entrees were good. Definitely pricey but it was expected so it was no surprise and it was worth it! Our waiter Alexander was impeccable, he was very interactive and so kind, offered us complimentary drinks at the end and unfortunately I don’t drink but it was very thoughtful.

The quaint location, IPAD wine list and drink listings, pleasing interior, fantastic service and quality food all contributed to a very enjoyable experience! The only thing that would have been better is if the KOBE steak portions were a little bigger for the price, but our steaks were cooked perfectly. Kudos to our waiter who was very engaging and knowledgeable...! We will return and tell others to try this out.

Wagyu sampler was absolutely amazing. We had a dry aged wagyu porterhouse which was very good but I couldn’t taste any difference from a regular prime porterhouse which was a bit disappointing as we were seeking that distinct flavor known with dry aged steak.

The 212 premium selection for two was delicious. Best wagyu and filet mignon I have ever had. The oysters from the seafood platter were fresh and did not smell whatsoever. With an American Express card, we got a free bottle of wine. The place is quiet, lighting is a lil dark for pictures but overall a good ambience. Would go back again.
