What an amazing restaurant! I went on a date with my boyfriend and they treated us like kings. Service was quick and food was SO delicious. I got the Kobe burger. It was to die for. I recommend getting the truffle mac n cheese to share!

I have eaten here once or twice a year for the past 20 years, but was disappointed this past week.

The apps and salads were good and my prime rib was excellent as was my daughter's steak. However, we also ordered a $120 steak for two but the size was really a steak for one.

However, what was truly lacking was the service. The wait staff seemed truly uninterested and it seemed that they made an effort to ensure there was no eye contact evech time they walked by the table. Our appetizer plates were picked up as they delivered our main courses, even though I was not done with my salad. We were done with our main courses before our waiter came by to ask how our steaks were. Prior to them asking, I asked the waiter as he was scurrying by our table about the size of the steak for two, he was disinterested in my inquiry and just continued walking, gave me a cursory answer and kept going.

It is a shame that there was such a lack of interest in our experience especially when you receive a $500 bill for 5 people.

I went there for lunch and ate lunch special steak.
It was reasonable price and big amount but taste was not so delicious than I had expected.

Great food, decent service, good ambiance. It was my bday, waiter never mentioned it. Thought that was odd. Spilled something in my friend, no offer to do something nice for him. Just a sorry. Wouldn't have accepted anything free, but they should offer regardless. Thats how service works.

No shrim cocktail on the menu. That's weird. Otherwise it was great.

My first time at the Old Homestead. What a lovely experience. Greeted warmly upon arrival. Great cocktails beforehand. Great food - Caesar salad, we both had the prime rib. Cooked perfectly. Garlic mashed potatoes a delight. No room for dessert!!
Service was very attentive but not bothersome.

My wife and I went here for date night. It was great for a one-time occasion. Ambiance was great! It’s the oldest steakhouse in NYC. The staff was friendly but very rushed. The steak was overdone. The food was poor. Would not go again.

We entered with zero greeting. Quickly ushered upstairs to a warm, grim and uninviting dining area. The waiter was smug. And you were playing Grease; You’re the one that I want”. That was not playing downstairs. We left before they brought water. We went next door to a new place and had an incredible steak, warm friendly greeted and bartender. Amazing experience.

Superschönes kleines Restaurant mit gehobener Küche. Super Steaks, Burger und mehr. Der 20oz Wagyu Burger ist der Oberhammer! Kennt ivr das wenn ein Burger nach Steak schmeckt? Dieser tut es! Filet Mignon mit BBQ war bei meiner Frau ebenfalls sehr gut.
Echt empfehlenswert. Schönes Ambiente, die Kellner, wie eigentlich fast alle in den USA, waren sehr nett, dabei aber nicht aufdringlich.
Also wir kommen, sollte es uns nochmal nach NYC verschlagen, wieder.
Danke Thanks Old Homestead

The place looks lovely- just what you always wanted from a venerable old New York landmark steakhouse. That’s where it ended for me. As we were seated, the sound system was blasting “Ballroom Blitz “ so loud I could barely concentrate on the menu. Our request to turn it down was ignored, but this became a moot point as the noise level rose to a point where it was drowned out anyway. The steak was good, perfectly cooked but very underseasoned. One bite of the creamed spinach left such a strong aftertaste of nutmeg that the rest of dinner was literally ruined. The giant baked potato was undercooked and served whole, unopened, unseasoned- just plopped on a plate. Honestly, the only really good thing we had was the roasted beet salad. Sorry- I was terribly disappointed.

Had an overall great experience here with a few friends. The manager, Sean, did an incredible job of making the night special for us as we were celebrating a recent marriage. The food was delicious, with large portions and incredible quality. Lovely, classic atmosphere. Perfect for a nice night out for a special occasion.

Old Homestead lives up to its reputation as a old school high service steakhouse that delivers the goods. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and would happily return!

Unfortunately after the good appetizer of rock shrimp and Caesar salad the porterhouse was very disappointing. The creamed spinach as well was not up to par. Steak lacked real depth of flavor for a 40 or 45 day aged cut of meat. Waitstaff was great, space is a classic steak house room, but wow for the money this was just not worth it. Bad day perhaps?

Very over priced and we ordered porterhouse for two and it was rubbery and very chewy. The sides were ok. But for a $120.00 steak it was not good at all.
