Our waiter was warm, welcoming and very knowledgable. The ambiance and noise level were very nice; however, my primary issue was with the temperature our main course was served. The steak came out cold despite having been seared on both sides, leading me to deduce that it had been done for some time for the heat from the sear to be negated by the cold interior (ordered rare). Also, our sides were mildly warm at best. We ordered the lobster mac & cheese, and the cheese was cool enough to have hardened in the center by the time it arrived at our table. The other side item was likewise barely above room temperature. We requested the food sent back to the kitchen to be warmed and ended up with the side items a bit scorched and the steak more of a medium cook. The food itself was good, albeit a bit crispy. This issue is not something I expect when out at an upscale steakhouse for a several hundred dollar dinner. We tried 212 Steakhouse for "something new" after having made our rounds at the classics in Manhattan. We likely caught them on an off night, but will not be going back.

Great place for a nice dinner, sides are great. Wine list is excellent and of course that Kobe tasting is heavenly.

Excellent meal. My boyfriend and I ate here to celebrate his 30th birthday. It was a very intimate setting, service was great, and food was top notch.

Appetizer is yummy.
Steak ordered medium was medium well
Steak ordered medium rare was rare.
They offered to re-cook but we were almost done at that point.

Even with a reservation, we were seated in a noisy near the entrance area.

We had gotten the Kobe tasting which was $225. For something this expensive I would expect that the restaurant perfect this dish and make it according to how the customer had asked for. We had asked for medium-rare and the meat came out medium-well. It was pretty much cooked. Steak should be eaten medium-rare, especially if it is something this price. I will not be recommending this place to anyone, rather I will be warning them not to go. Other food items were good and service was good however the steak at this STEAKhouse was extremely disappointing.

Very good food, particularly the steaks. However, our waiter was awful! Took him 15 minutes to take our wine order and then had to chase him after 25 minutes to place our dinner order! And 212 was not that busy last evening.

The professionalism in service is almost palpable. The meticulously detailed venue is undeniable. And the general feeling of giddyness is relatable. The food, however, did not live up to the hype--nor the price tag. I won't be adding this to my list of fav spots.

Was excited to go because I heard the food was good and they had halal options. Ordered 2 steaks and the t bone was so rubbery you couldn’t even cut into it. Ordered pasta which was okay, my brother steak burger was alright. The other didn’t even touch their food. Food was mediocre at best, and on top of that they charged us for drinks we sent back and took 90$ automatic gratuity which we asked to get taken off. Over all experience was a 5/10. The amount your paying doesn’t match with the food and experience your getting. The bill amount was the same as if I went to a high end / high experience dining restaurant, but the food and atmosphere didn’t match.

Our Wagyu Ribeye was burnt and chewy. Waiter was very kind and took it back and brought back another one. This time it was too chewy. We couldn’t even eat it. Disappointed honestly since I was craving steak for a long time and finally decided to hit up a steakhouse. I’ll stick to my usual spot.

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.
