Extremely disappointing! Food quality was poor and prices very high. Lump crab appetizer was small and smelled fishy - as if it hadn't been rinsed. Steak tartare was far too wet masking the flavor of the meat. Pastas were good. Steaks were cold! They also lacked salt. Deserts were pre-made and frozen. Chocolate mousse was literally solid and ice cold. $800 for 4 people...not even remotely close to worth it.

They need a cocktail menu but the drinks we requested were well made. Steak, chicken and pasta (particularly the pasta) were all well prepared and tasty. We preferred this experience over their other location.

Food was fenomenal porterhouse was es executed perfectly all the courses was great also. The service on the other hand was lacking luster and found us trying to get them to come and attend the table, maybe was too busy and not enough staff the place was packed. Will definitely come again food made it all better.

The food was hit or miss - though mostly a miss. Appetizers of Clams Oreganata and crab cake were good, which made the disappointing main dishes really a surprise. Branzino was awful - rubbery and tasteless. Menu said whole fish - but it was actually two separate filets that I would bet came straight out of the freezer. I have never seen a piece of branzino that needed a knife to cut it. Not sure how they can call themselves a "steakhouse” - The NY strip and veal chop were similarly tasteless and tough. The service was also lackluster.
Would not return.

Food was good, very expensive and charged $45 for corkage fee. Very crowded, close together and noisy. Staff not wearing masks and seating back to normal, not spread out at all

This is my 4th time since late September that I have dined at this restaurant .

I kept returning because the value for the food ,service ans environment was great. However since my last experience dining there 2 weeks ago, all the prices on entree jumped $20 dollars higher . It was shocking !

This huge price increase was so shocking that I will not go back there again since all the high end steak places charge the same . We thought we were getting a great value here . There are so many great restaurants is the same price point that are better all around .

It was still good food and service but just disappointing to see the shocking price increases .

Especially in today new service world, it should be commended that the service was excellent. From beginning to end everyone was attentive and there was never an issue, what is more impressive it was a packed Saturday night. The food, especially the steaks are exactly what they are known for. Good wine selection with regional choices.

My wife and I had been here a few weeks before and we were both pleasantly surprised. We could not wait to go back but after last night, I am not sure we will be going back again.
First off, if you are a party of 2, they will always sit you in the bar area. The main dining room is only for parties or 3 or more.
The main dining room is nice with a wood burning fireplace.
Anyway, the place was packed and unlike the first time, you can really feel like you were being rushed. From the second you sit down, they are pushing the alcohol. This I get, but typically not before the water. Bread was good but the butter was served in a cheap aluminum container. Pretty tacky.
I ordered the arugula salad which was pretty tasteless, and my wife the wedge which was soaked in blue cheese dressing. She enjoyed it though. Just wished she ordered the dressing on the side.
As a main I had the chicken which was simply ok. Again, not much flavor but cooked well. My wife had the salmon of which she could not have been more disappointed.
The food was rushed out and they seemed to be trying to clear the plates before we were even finished. The table behind ours the woman was complaining about her pasta not being al Dente, in which none of the waiters in an Italian steakhouse could understand what she was talking about. As we are eating they are removing a table next to ours, and left the chairs there. Just dragging it around making a ton of noise. Then the table reappears. Again dragging it making a lot of noise during dinner.
Don’t get me wrong, we want to like this place, but it seems like they just got too big, too fast and it’s showing.
As a final issue, they valet park your car for you. When I went to get my car, the valet pulled it out of its spot and left it across the parking lot. He came over with the key and pointed to it. Really? He could not bring it to me?
Come on guys. Last night was a pretty bad experience on what was supposed to be the start of a very nice evening.

It was the least relaxing meal ever. We weren’t able to put down our forks to take a breath between bites before someone would come and attempt to clear the table. We politely asked no less than 8 times to leave the dishes and plates that we were still working on. We felt like we were being pushed out the entire time. Would not return.

Absolutely phenomenal service! Very attentive staff. Food top notch. The main dining room could use a better configuration as it almost looks and feels like a cafeteria. Needs a more intimate design. Otherwise a great experience.

Just what you want in a steakhouse. Big tables, comfortable seats, great martini, good wine list, plenty of fun appetizers and of course a terrific steak. I had the NY strip medium rare, which was ever so slightly overcooked, but no complaints because it was delicious. I will go as often as cholesterol levels permit.

We called ahead as we were going to be 10 mins late for our reservation and were stuck in traffic. They said no problem. When we arrived, they had given our table away, were completely unprofessional and said we should wait at the bar. They had no idea how long it would be before we could be seated. They could have just told us that when I called ahead and saved us the trip there! The manager at the host stand (maybe owner?) was unbelievably rude. The restaurant was beyond packed with tables very close together and no semblance of social distancing. It was so ridiculous and attitude so terrible that we left to eat somewhere else and will never go back. Don’t waste your time or your money with this restaurant given how they treat their customers. There are too many good places nearby that actually value their customers.

Raised all prices on menu 50% plus Went there multiple times in past couple months everything was great…food, ambience, value. Ate there this weekend with same exact menu but they “subtly” raised every price over fifty percent and the portions were smaller. We were shocked, have no idea why or what happened but have crossed it off our list.

We were thrilled to see the crowd on a Saturday night as we had only been there weeknights when it was not as busy. The staff and their service is amazing. The food was delicious, the only thing that was off were the clams oreganata. They seemed overcooked therefore dried out. We will be back many more times.

This is my second time at Macelleria steakhouse and the environment is beautiful ,food is great and prices are very reasonable foe the delicious food . The main dining room is beautiful but seems to be reserved for groups of 4 or more . The first room feels more cramped and less enjoyable with the door entry near by and it’s a bit loud. The bar area is very nice and a nice place to dine . Service was very very good and their is available parking whether you valet or not . Overall. A nice experience

Impressive reimagining of the old Char restaurant location, newly redone and nice space. Broad menu, tasty food, reasonable prices especially for the steaks, great service, and free parking in lot, can't ask for more.

We enjoyed an excellent meal, and nice time out. Service is excellent, very attentive. Maître d’hôtel really paid attention to our happiness, checking in several times. Good choice, plenty of fish, pasta, in addition to steaks. Portions are good price for value, my friend had lamb chops, which were great. We also shared some salads, and my whole branzino was huge, could not finish it, and very fresh. My friend’s wife had pasta which she ending up taking half home. Only less positive comment is my wife’s Zuppa de pesche (fish stew) could have had a bit more seafood in it. Overall great experience for our friend’s birthday, we will come back.

Everything we had was delicious! Only suggestion per my husband was to have linguine with the zuppa de pesce. He loved the white wine sauce the seafood was cooked in but thought it needed some linguine with it. Would definitely go back.

Such a great all around restaurant experience. The service is amazing and you feel really welcome here (unlike Polpo where you are treated like a low life unless you are in the Greenwich Elite crowd). The price points are amazing too and the food of course is great too!

We enjoyed the meal however we felt rushed. From the time we sat down and got the bill it was less than an hour. Going forward I would allow customers a little more time to enjoy the meal. 3 waiters asked to take my entre before I completed eating. I would recommend the restaurant carry black tea either English tea or Lipton. Not everyone likes green tea. Wishing you success. Thank you.
