I came to 212 Steakhouse with my sister and cousin who we’d not seen in years to catch up. I cannot say enough how pleased we were with the service, the deliciousness of the food and their amazing Kobe beef! The waiter was helpful and courteous! The food and drinks were amazing! If you have not had a Kobe ribeye from there, I would highly recommend it! Plus it’s one of only seven places you can buy it in the US! The ambiance of the restaurant was warm and welcoming! I highly recommend 212 Steakhouse!

Great experience. Ate the Kobe beef which was out of this world and cooked to perfection. Would definitely suggest coming here for a special occasion or to try real Kobe beef.

Great food, service and atmosphere. Nice and quiet compared to restaurants in the theater district that are always a mad house. Excellent Waiter. Highly recommend.

Alex, who took care of us was very friendly and helpful on our selection.
He direct us to a quite area where myself and my guest from Monaco could talk business and at the same time enjoy our steaks.
It was my first time at 212 Steakhouse and will definitely be back with the first occasion.

Skirt steak was better than the t-bone! Service was okay, considering the price and the style they are going for.
Greeted by being asked if we had a groupon or other barter?
Not a great sign when you’ve booked and are about to pay full price!!
Tasty but with a meal of that caliber the service did not match.
Server hacked up our steak at table side - I asked to do it myself and I was told no.
Pass on the lobster Mac n cheese, dry and not creamy or cheesy.
I had hope for much more. With the competition out there this doesn’t cut it in New York.

Service was a bit slow to start but very friendly. Food was good but not great. For the price, the food should have been great. If I wouldn't have got a Groupon deal ($120 for $69) I would have been pretty upset.

very nice steakhouse in east side of manhattan. the service was a bit inattentive because only one waiter had 5 tables but they comped us the cocktails which was super nice. we sat on the window and loved the neighborhood feel. good place if you don't want to go to the typical big steakhouses....

The food and ambiance were fabulous! Before we even arrived I knew I'd be happy with service as they were so accommodating with my reservation changes and one of us being gluten-free. When we arrived we were impressed with the professional and friendly level of service which is hard to balance. We hit the jackpot with our server, Mary. So kind, knowledgable and was eager to please. Now to the food...every morsel was delicious!

Everything about my experience was perfect,
from the service & patience of the waiter (Alex) to the food itself.
He was great & very knowledgeable about the menu.
Once the food came, OH EMM GEE!
I had the lamb chops and my Boyfriend had the filet mignon
with the side of lobster mac & cheese.
Every cut was juicy and every bite was tasteful.
AMAZING! 212, PLEASE KEEP THE GOOD FOOD COMING!!

food was very good but the prices are insane. when a steakhouse is more expensive than
capital grill, smith & wollenskys and the palm it better be damn good. lots if folks think this
place is a real deal because of groupon ...howefer ever AFTER groupon the place is top dollar.
groupon sells a $60 gift certificate on a dinner forn two at 212steakhouse for $35.00. Sadly
that doesnt even start to cover costs. $40.00 for a hamburger is the cheapest entre. A dinner
forn two will run you at loeast $150.00 making it $90.00 plus tax and tip even after giving groupon $35

First time having Kobe beef - outstanding . Unexpected surprise was the octopus appetizer- highly recommend if you enjoy any seafood; also the sautéed mushrooms - best I have ever had.
Really like the fact that it is a small place and did not seem crowded or noisy

If I want overcooked beef and crappy service, I can go to McDonald's and not spend $150. Worst NYC restaurant experience ever.

I had purchased a Groupon for my sister in law and one for myself. We used it today because it was my niece's birthday. When my brother and I arrived we went to ask if we were able to sit at the same table and Mary said sure no problem. She said she would set up our table while we waited for the remainder of our group to show up. For appetizers we ordered 2 grilled octopus, a dozen of the prince Edward island oysters and jumbo shrimp cocktail. For sides we ordered the lobster Mac and cheese, sauteed mushrooms, truffle mashed and marble potatoes. Main entrees we ordered dry aged bone in ribeye, filet mignon and 2 new York strip. We had more than enough food and had leftovers to take home. I had ordered ahead of time the dessert (chocolate souffle) for my niece's birthday. The Everything was delicious. The staff was so nice, courteous and very friendly. This made our first experience great and would definitely go back.

We went in for the Kobe near sampler. My husband loves Kobe meat. The sampler is definitely worth every penny. The server was great. She was very knowledgeable on the meat. Would definitely go back when I visit NY again

The waiter was rude and never ever came back and ask if we’re okay or if we needed anything else. The A/C wasn’t working so it was extremely warm. Besides the waiters extremely bad attitude, the food was good and hot.

Overpriced food and wine. Great atmosphere and table service, the staff are very polite and friendly and cater for your needs. We had a steak and also ribs, food was average but we paid far too much for it as I have had better.

You just gotta go can’t tell you enough how good the Kobe ribeye was - you just gotta experience it.
