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.
Such an elegant and sophisticated environment with beautiful park views. I had the 3 course lunch which is an amazing deal. Service is top notch!!
Excellent food and good service in a very energetic atmosphere. Very enjoyable!
Food was good but terribly overpriced..... will not go back.
Food tastes good. Smashed potato and vegetables is needed because stack is large and you need sonething else.
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!
Service befitting a four-star restaurant. everyone makes you feel like a valued patron.
Level of attention is perfect.
Food is excellent—best steak I've had in ages. Keen's, Wolfgang's can't keep up.
Great dining experience with beautiful views of Columbus Circle. Food and service was excellent.
Tim is the best !!
Viande d'excellente qualité, très bon conseils lors du service.
Malheureusement notre table était au fond de la salle... donc pas de vue ni de petite alcove. Dommage
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.
Perfect place to celebrate a birthday!
Asked for table near window but did not get. We had an early reserv as well
Amazing food and ambiance!
Excellent meat but service is not well. When you book, ask for a table with the view on the park.
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.
Consistently a crowd pleaser and reliable go-to establishment. Love the Burrata tomato w pesto appetizer.
Excellent location. Nice menu selection. Excellent customer service.
This restuarant has really amazing food. However, the prices are really pricey.
Great meta, done just on point. The sides were great as well and with awesome service
This place is top notch. Always on-point, never disappoints. Precisely what you want from a new York dining experience. 5 stars
Really great food. Service was short of what you should expect from an upscale Steakhouse.
Food was delicious, service was great. Definitely coming back. Hello from Los Angeles!
The entire dinner was absolutely perfect!!!
Ordered the Porterhouse for Two, Steak was warm and under cooked. Definitely overpriced at $141.00
Not bad but not so good. Especially the burnt surpace of porterhouse make the taste worse.
The Château d’yquem taste at the end of the meal with the cheeses was dynamite. Excellent chili rubbed ribeye. Well attended service. Good choice for business or out of town guests
Too notch view, service, food. Expensive but varied wine list. This was my second visit and I will definitely be back.
LOVE this restaurant and the food is consistently terrific! We take all of our out of town guests here.
Fabulous plus! Expensive but worth every dollar. A great place to eat.
Excellent steak. Wide variety of steak to choose from. Over hundreds of wines available.
Our table was worth the wait and the appetizers were fresh and fantastic. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the sides were excellent.
Food was outstanding, waitress was wonderful and view was incredible! We had to get to a concert and they were very accommodating even squeezed a birthday dessert in. Definitely coming back:)
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.
