Food and service was great - however place was extremely hot and muggy. No AC whatsoever - kinda ruined birthday dinner as it was uncomfortable of how muggy the place was. Really bummed about spending over $600 for dinner at a place with no AC. Wasn’t worth it.

212 Steakhouse was always my favorite steakhouse - great service, food, and ambience. I was excited to bring my friend who is visiting from another country, and unfortunately, my dry-aged Porterhouse for two (requested to be medium rare) was well-done around the edges, and even burnt on the outside. I was quite disappointed with the food, but the service was great as usual...

Expect a delightful experience and the highest level of service. These guy are outstanding. They have a combination dish of Kobe, Wagyu, and Prime US beef that is to die for, at a very reasonable price. If you are in NYC don't miss this hidden gem!

My husband and I come to the city a few times a year and try all different restaurants. This is by far the absolute best restaurant/steakhouse we have been to not only in nyc but anywhere in the country and we travel a lot. The service is impeccable as well!

Where do I start? From the steak selection to the cocktails everything is to die for. Hands down one of the best steakhouses in US. The ambience, service, quality and taste was over the top. Great place and deserves 5 stars!!

It was amazing!! The food was good and the ambiance too. The service was outstanding!!! I have to thank Alessandro for it, he is a great waiter/bar tender. Hector was also a very nice waiter. It’s good to have staff like this to encourage customers like us to come again. On a side note, you should definitely try the fried oysters, they delicious!!!

The steak was delicious - we got halal wagyu beef. It’s also worth noting that the chicken and lamb chops are halal too! Furthermore, Paco was a great waiter.

The most horrible experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant service wise! The waitress didn’t greet us for 40 min, and then didn’t check in us after that at all unless we got out of our seats and hunted her down. No apologies, no explanations, just awful service. She was so bad. We never had our water refilled, our steak was over cooked and we had to chase her down to get anything done about it. It was my birthday dinner and I was honestly horrified. The food was good but not worth going back for that hell of an experience.

This is THE place to go to for Kobe beef. Had an amazing time here for my 30th birthday dinner. The Kobe tasting was amazing. Melts in your mouth. We came here specifically for Kobe beef and we left feeling very happy. Service was top tier. Staff were friendly and accommodating. If you want to try a steak house, you can’t go wrong eating here.

Overrated and overpriced!

Service was bad. We went for a birthday celebration but they didn’t bother to mention it.

Kobe steaks were not consistently cut and cooked, some orders were excellent and some were not so good.

the food was ok.

the caesar salad was low on garlic, acidity and zest. great that they did add extra whole anchovies per my ask.

steak was ordered medium rare and arrived just under well done. sent back. second time came out over medium with a bit of pink remaining. i did not have the heart to send it back.

the service was attentive and tried hard. they are very nice. a neighborhood place for steak.
