    This is a real deal review from a professional. Old Homestead definitely came thru…. cocktail shrimp, crab cake and tuna were all on point. Wedge salad next was very good. Steak 40 day dry aged sirloin cook as ordered was also on pint along with sides of lobster mac and cheese and creamed spinach. Wine was fairly priced. Food was a bit high, however because everything was on point how can one complain… why not 4 stars? I would like to go back and make sure it is consistent. Which I will. DDD Chaine des Rotisseurs

    The arrival experience was poor, as we had to walk up two flights of stairs to the third floor where we were seated at a table without menus. Had to flag down a passing waiter to get them, after waiting over 10 minutes, and then waited another 10 minutes before we could order beverages. The overall quality of the food was not commensurate with the price. We were treating another couple, to celebrate their move to a new home, and everyone was disappointed. Will not return.

    Went for belated anniversary with another couple. We had raw oysters, raw clams, baked clams and chopped salad to start. A filet mignon, salmon and prime rib as main courses. Sides were creamed spinach, mashed potatoes and onion rings. Dessert was cheesecake. Everything was delicious. Service excellent

    This was the last night treat for the family,arrived early but still seated so off to a good start,food ordered & arrived without too much delay & it looked awesome & tasted great too,we decided to order desserts too which were also nice,the only downside to the whole experience was the waiter telling us how much of a tip that he wanted rather than what we offered,we did leave a tip but felt pressured to offer more.

    Seriously I was disappointed with my last meal of 2022. Our steaks were not cook to the temperature requested. The burger my son ordered was totally under cooked! And the wait staff seemed to be fighting the entire time we were there. Avoid this place! Seriously l!

    Server was rude. Medium rare steak was brought to the table so undercooked that it was practically cold. Drinks were poorly made. Recommendation: There’s a Starbucks across the street from Old Homestead that will serve you a better meal

    Food was decent but not the best. What really upset us was the “sneaky” bill! They add a suggested tip on the detailed receipt then put that total on the slip for customers to sign along with another tip line! Seems shady

    Food was poor. French fries were frozen not hand cut as it says on the menu. The prime rib was overcooked and tough, not worth $75. It looked like it was sitting around. The lobster tail was stuffed with something that tasted old. The bread was very stale. Service was poor, limited follow up of care. We will never go back.

    Enjoyed the Raw Bar selections The steaks were cooked to perfection Cocktails are way overpriced and they need to fix that. Most expensive drinks I ever witnessed in NYC or anywhere else weren’t even made properly Next time in We’ll eat the delicious food and leave the drinking for another venue.

    We always enjoyed the Old Homestead. This time we were disappointed because they changed the menu. No dry-aged beef. Mostly sirloin choices. No NY Strip or aged ribeye. Our steak was adequate. The creamed spinach had an artificial truffle oil flavor. We did not eat it, though they did take the charge off of our bill. Caesar salad was fine, but skimpy. For the money we spent, we expected more. Like how it used to be.

    We went to the restaurant for our Christmas dinner since I thought it would be great to go to a place that has a bit of history and has the feeling of institution. Service was wonderful but food is mediocre at best and really expensive. I can think of a few grills that would serve food 10 times better with half the price. We had a nice time but I don't think I'll ever go back.

    We can’t say enough good things about this establishment. The food and service was beyond our expectations. The portion size were huge . I highly recommend the rack of lamb . We are still talking about it a day later BTW, not to mention the expresso martins were the best in NYC ask for Inga !

    I’m a NYC steakhouse snob and for the price you pay in these steakhouses I feel we are justified in expecting excellence. Well Old Homestead certainly did not disappoint. I’ve driven past this restaurant for all of my life but never ate here until last night and we went for Christmas Eve dinner. The restaurant is beautiful and had lively Christmas decorations and really has that old steakhouse feel. Dark tones and a warm clubby feel. George was our waiter and was attentive, friendly and very funny. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We each had filet mignon that was tender and buttery and cooked as ordered. The side dishes (garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus hollandaise, creamed spinach and lobster Mac and cheese) were delicious. We are already planning to return as we had overlooked this establishment and are now planning to be regular customers. I just don’t understand some of the negative reviews as I am unforgiving at this price point and I had a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

    We have eaten at Old Homestead on our trips to New York frequently over the years. We always look forward to it with great anticipation. Dinner there last night was one of the worst dining experiences we’ve ever had. The service was frankly, awful. My husband and son ordered the bone in prime rib, it was served cold. The other 2 of us had bacon wrapped filets with seasoned potatoes, semi cold steaks and the potatoes were not good. To say we were disappointed was an understatement.

    Despite the fact that I have lived in NYC for more than 30 years I had never been to Old Homestead Steakhouse before. I anticipated - and was delivered - a delicious meal. What I didn't expect was a superb dining *experience* - the kind that I thought had long since disappeared in Manhattan. I'm happy to say I was mistaken! Among other delights, a romantic table for myself and my lovely partner... an atmosphere of jovial conversation (conversation - not shouting!) and the most perfect cocktails I've ever had (yes, there were several.) Heaven. The service was OUTSTANDING. In particular, our waiter George went above and beyond the call of duty to make our anniversary dinner something truly special - he is a fantastic human being and deserves the highest praise! All in all - a perfect evening made possible by the good people at Old Homestead Steakhouse. Myself and my partner will be returning again soon - and repeatedly. Cuisine thoughts: The rock shrimp was delectable, and the creme brûlée was divine. The steak, though? Orgasmic. "I'll have what she's having." Easily the best steak I've ever had. Old Homestead Steakhouse - a national treasure and my new restaurant friend. I can't wait until Valentine's Day... And, again - George. The man, the myth, the legend. Thank you!
