It was my first time having steak in NYC and i couldn’t handle to write review. Due to restaurant week, we could enjoy it by reasonable price. Ordered salmon and beef steak and really loved it. And we got free dessert also, it was super good.

Have been here a couple of times, always very solid. Good lunch crowd. Lots of options besides steak. I had a nice tuna steak, and wedge salad. Another co-worker had the burger which I've had in the past and is excellent. Two other co-workers had salad with grilled chicken. Everyone enjoyed the meal. We will be back for sure.

Excellent Porter House! The Prime Salad was really good and as desert we ordered a delicious cheesecake !
Our server Ari was really attentive, and as Brazilians we felt welcomed when the bright and polite Oswaldo greeted us at the Table, it was good to talk a bit about Rio!

Great service and above average food, but the place needs an update.
A much better value for your money can be had on similar steakhouses on the area.

Good ambience, service. However I felt the cut of filet minion was not as good as Ruth’s Chris. Could be because it was Xmas day. Mediocre side dishes. Excellent cheese cake. Good wine list.

Very loud. Pressure to select a very expensive bottle of wine. Bright the wrong order to the table. Waitress was curt and short. We paid over 1K for a dinner that was best mediocre.

A fine restaurant for steaks and/or seafood!
Attentive service and most tables are nicely spaced for conversation.
Just be prepared for an expensive meal, unless it’s Restaurant Week or a holiday prix fixe deal.

Waiters were slow and impatient when they did serve us. Basically told us when we were ready to order our appetizers and our meal “because we are very busy”. Then of course they got our order mixed up with another table. I eat once per month in NYC with my customer who likes steakhouses. That said, Bobby Vans, Keenes, Mastros, Capital Grill , Wolfgangs, and Benjamin Prime are all on my rotation. Never an issue until this visit. Very disappointed.

We started off great as the Managerial staff very attentive. The atmosphere was pleasing and decorated nice for the holiday. My. friends steak was under cooked and had to go back. It took too long to return because the first attempt at cooking it to her requested temperature resulted in being burnt. She received her filet at the end of our meal. It was awkward eating our meal without her especially since our steaks were great. Because we were all there for our annual Christmas dinner in NYC, we didn’t give the staff a hard time and proceeded to enjoy ourselves. It was not until my girlfriend recognized that the chair she was sitting in was wet and soaked the entire back of her legs. Not only was this horrible for her but to make matters worse our waiter took personal offense to our complaint and rendered us a dismissive and insolent attitude! My husband and I were so embarrassed as we made the reservation and were looking forward to eating at this establishment. I would not have even made this post had the problem been handled appropriately but I’ve been stewing about it all last night!

Took our managers out to dinner. They had a great time as the food was amazing as usual. However, we sat in the new room for larger parties, where I found the ambiance not fitting for the holidays (as compared to the main dining area). Our table did not have enough cutlery and some errors with our order.

What a disappointment. We had really hoped to have a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary, however, the food, service and overall experience just did not pan out. The waiter immediately wanted to take our food order, without even giving us an opportunity to order a drink first. The wedge salad, which we split, was quite nice. When the steaks arrived, they were both overcooked. An assistant manager stopped by to say bon appetit, and we commented the filet mignon looked well done because of the extremely heavy char, he asked it be cut in the middle. Since it did have a little pink in the center, case closed. The bone in ribeye was also considerably overcooked, but we didn’t even bother to mention that since the other complaint generated no concern. Also, the baked potato had a black spot in it. The waiter never returned to the table to inquire regarding the dinner. Elegant, albeit rather noisy, environment, limited conversation. Lively bar scene very close to our table. Really sorry to have wasted $230 on this less than stellar restaurant.

The place was way overcrowded. No space to even stand or check in. Overall it all seemed unorganized. The food was decent but personally not worth the experience.

Arrived 15 minutes early,but were still kept waiting 25 minutes after our reservation time before being seated,the waiter was polite & our food was brought in the time he said it would be,both steaks were large & perfectly cooked as ordered with sides enough for two.The only thing bigger than the steaks was the the bill.

We ordered and the food arrived before our drinks. We were rushed in and out. The Ribeye Steak was dry (its supposed to have more depth than a porterhouse); I asked for butter for my baked potato and never got it. For those prices you should not feel like you are in a cafeteria.
