Slow night at the restaurant, but the service was at best indifferent, and at worse negligent. The food wasn’t as well prepared as in the past, but it was still quite good.

Excellent service. Had us out in time to make our broadway show. Very considerate. Steaks cooked to perfection. We were late to our reservation due to airline delays and they still seated us.

We have been many times to this restaurant and had perfect experiences unfortunately this time it was marred by our servers attitude. Mat was not professional, he was always in a hurry, wether it was to speak to us to explain a dish or to take our order. He would lounge against the back of our chair as if hanging out with his buddies at a bar. We were very surprised as this is Not the service we have had in the past nor received from the other servers that evening, especially the sommelier who was exceptionally professional.

Superb porterhouse cooked perfectly as ordered. Excellent friendly yet unobtrusive service. The portions are not obscenely oversized. Value? Of course prices are sky-high, but for a special splurge...

Waiter had no personality. I’ve never been to steakhouse where I was told there were only 5 temperatures you can get your steak. We wanted it cooked between medium and medium well and were told we had to pick one. My wife picked medium well with almost no pink. It came medium rare. Sent it back 3 times and was still too rare. Sent it back for good.

Prix fixe lunch is a good value. Food is delicious, but sides and chicken were skimpy in size compared to past visits. Also, no vegetables with the chicken!

Pretentious—7 of us for dinner—bill over $1099 and the staff treated us like we had never been to a restaurant before-or to NYC. I will not go again. I was entertaining guests from Water Grill group in LA and Vegas and they were shocked at lack of civility.

AMAZING . Over from Australia for a holiday with my brother - booked lunch for his birthday and a 10/10 experience. Will highly recommend it to anyone travelling to NYC and will be back next holiday. Thanks again for making it a truly memorable experience.
Everything was just perfect - the food - the service - the wine and the little extra things like the birthday treats given.

Beyond mediocre. Service was lacking significantly.

The wine and somm were among the highlights.

The only standout dishes we had were the burrata and onion rings. In fairness, we didn't take the waiters suggestion for sides and ours were not good.

The mini baguette had no crunch. The butter was solid. The burrata was our appetizer and standout, even though it needed some salt.

For main we had the Porterhouse for two - we ordered the steak medium and it came out very rare (read seared). Looking beyond the temp issue, the steak needed more seasoning - salt would have been fine. The steak was also served at room temperature. I happen to prefer my steak be served still warm.

For sides we ordered the creamed spinach, mashed potatoes and onion rings.

The onion rings were fantastic, order these. The mashed potatoes were perfectly fine - needed a smidge more salt and could have benefited from a punch (herbed garlic, roasted butter,etc). The creamed spinach was very much not good. It came out in a bathtub of liquid and seasoned with what appeared to be nutmeg - not the route to go.

For dessert we had the Sunday and banana cream pie. Both perfectly fine but nothing to write home about.

Overall the seasoning was off and despite the restaurant being fairly empty the food was served room temperature at best. Definitely not worth it for the money.
