Great steakhouse with attentive waitstaff and 5 star fanfare in the heart of midtown. Spyglass rooftop nightclub up top with great views of Empire State building and the Salesforce tower is an added bonus!

Had a nice time at Charlie Palmer's Steakhouse. Started with drinks at the bar. We were disappointed with the gimlets. The bartender explained that the drinks were astringent due to "fresh" lime juice. That was not the case as we always use fresh lime juice in all of our drinks. I presume that their fresh lime juice comes from their distributor already squeezed rather than freshly squeezed at the bar. The distributor product probably has ascorbic acid as a preservative which is very astringent. In any case, the cocktails were not a hit. The bar staff was friendly and accommodating though. The sommelier was very helpful in recommending a nice Bordeaux which we enjoyed very much. For dinner we tried the waygu carpaccio and avacado bibb salad to start. Both very good. We shared the 30 day dry aged bone in "tomahawk" rib eye for two and the brussels sprouts. The steak came out on a sizzling iron skillet which made for a head turning experience. It was intentionally undercooked as the skillet finishes it at the table - a great idea for sharing when different temperatures are preferred. The steak was rich and had deep “meaty” flavor. However, it was under seasoned which was easily fixed with a liberal dose of salt. The brussels sprouts were perfect. For dessert, crème brulee and espresso. Great service. Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Very comfortable. Would definitely come back.

Perhaps I built it up too much and got too excited for our xmas day meal as tourists from the UK, and perhaps I didnt understand the menu and ordering, but my fiancee and I ended up with a lamb shank each. Whats wrong with that, I hear you ask?
It was just a lamb shank.
No veg, no sides. No nothing...just a lamb shank each.
As I say, probably our mistake but we were told we could order either xmas day menu or regular menu...so we ordered xmas day menu...
And we got a lamb shank on a plate.
We did ask a different waitress if we got any veg and she looked stunned and said "i can get some if you want" but I thought that would mean everything else would go cold.
I left a $30 tip on a $300 tab but that wasnt deemed sufficient for the offer of coffee that other diners got, or help with our coats or a goodbye and thank you as we left.
I was pretty stunned and gutted for our xmas meal away from home.
But the food we did eat was delicious.

We arrived on Xmas day for a 6:30 reservation. They were running 1/2 hour behind and had no where for us to wait. We had to ask several times what was going on but no one seemed to know. There was a prix fixe and a la carte menu but the table had to order from one or the other. That was not made clear until we were ordering. Can't figure out why we had to choose one over the other. Steak was excellent but it came only with a scoop of potato, no vegetable. The lamb shank was accompanied by nothing. Management needs to get their act together. Aureole is the better Charlie Palmer option.

Great experience. Very clean and the decor matched the Christmas holidays. Quiet ambiance which was great to do catch up with a family member. Service was great... chipped water glass was replaced right away. We loved the Caesar salad and the recommended porterhouse for two. Sides were brussel sprouts and hashbrown. Both great, very filling and flavors were in line with steak. But I wasn't too fond of the burnt look of the brussel sprouts. Definitely could have been cooked better. I peeled the outer layers out. It may be because it was caramelized but still didn't look appetizing. Dessert could have been better. brownie with ice cream wasn't executed well. Served in a glass, the brownie, the ice cream and the cream or marshmallow like toppings were not working well together. Couldn't finish it. Kind of unfortunate because the appetizer and main dish were delicious. But I'd definitely go back to try other dishes, it was well worth the visit.

I marked the occasion - birthday. Did not receive any inquiry calls or recognition at the restaurant. I think that should be better executed for customer retention (although I'd still go back for the food itself, many people care about that experience component).

I got the bone-in ribeye and it was almost devoid of taste. My friend said he like his steak, which as I recall was a sirloin of some type. Not awful; just wasn't worth the cost.

Interesting room off the lobby of the boutique Archer Hotel in midtown. Comfortable space and noise level very reasonable so conversation is not a problem. Service was reasonably attentive and non intrusive. On bone ny strip was ordered medium rare but arrived medium. Quality of meat was surprisingly blah, a little tough and not much flavor. The CP house sauce was more ketchup than anything else. The fillet that my friend had was pronounced to be okay and had been cooked to order. Roasted Brussels sprouts were charred but lukewarm and not cooked through. Dessert of cheesecake pudding was quite yummy. Wines by the glass are rather limited.

With so many steak houses in NYC, I would recommend trying other places rather than spending your $200+ here.

They have a server problem. Don't get me wrong, the servers are pleasant, but we asked for a steak with no sauce. The steak came sauced. I had a drink that I finished during the appetizers. I was not asked if I wanted another one until I was almost done with my entree. We often ran out of water. The steak was cooked to the correct temperature, but both people in the party thought their steaks were salt licks. I am all for seasoning, but you cannot take salt away and this was ridiculous. Also, another reason we kept downing water. We won't be back. A shame because I generally like Charlie Palmer's food a lot and love Aureole

From start to finish this was a top notch meal. The service was fantastic but not overbearing. The sommelier was extremely helpful. We splurged and ordered the Kobe beef. It was hands down the best piece of meat I’ve ever had! The cheese plate starter was a great deal. A selection of three meats and three cheeses. The Mac and cheese was really good as well. The only miss was the agnolotti, but I think that was just a personal preference.

Sat at a great table. Nice server. Good food portion. A bit pricey but worth it. My one and only criticism is the bread could have more selection and should come out warm... though they did warm it when I asked.

The food was good but not worth the price. It took them half an hour past our reservation time to seat us and we were only seated when we inquired what the issue was. It turns out there had been open tables but they forgot about us. Unacceptable.

Other than that, the food was excellent and our waiters were very attentive.

So disappointed. Thanksgiving of all days to try to slip up my table. We were a party of 11. Reservations made in August. Changed their menu to limited options that we were not aware of in hopes that guest would chose their 90.00 a person holiday menu. That menu was a joke that even our children complained about. We even had items on our bill that weren't ours. Poorly managed.
