I know it’s a tough time to find workers however service was underwhelming. We had to ask for our food after it did not return to be cooked further, 15 min later.

The salad was also bland. Would expect something more substantial and tasteful.

This was our second trip to Boston, we basically come to Boston for the food and like to try different places each time. This came highly suggested and we were definitely not disappointed. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and accommodating. The tuna tartare was perfect, the steak was cooked to perfection and the sides of Brussels w/ bacon chunks and truffle Mac and cheese were great selections. We decided to get dessert and I do not regret it at all that warm chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream. We definitely will come back here next time we are in Boston! Thank you for a great last nights dinner to end our vacation!

I ate here a month ago and it was outstanding. Last night, we ordered tomahawks but you did not have any left. Then we ordered NY strip. My dinner was ordered at medium rare but it actually came out rare. My steak was fatty. Brussel sprouts were under cooked. Our table was by a door with a draft. If you spend over $500 you should get a better overall experience. I love this place but this dinner was disappointing. I eat here 4 times a year. This one was not good.

As always, a perfect evening with our children. Our waiter was exceptional, per usual, and the food exquisite and delicious! We frequently dine here and every time is lovely. Highly recommend the scallop appetizer and oysters. Beef tenderloin/filet (especially coffee and cocoa rub) exceptional. Dessert must include a campfire Sundae. Cheers to another fantastic meal! See you soon!!

Is a dinner for 4 in a steak house ever worth $200 per person? That is the existential question. We were brought wrong salads (3 or us ordered baby iceberg and received Wollensky salads) but didn’t realize until the end. Steaks are appropriate for two people. Ridiculous size. Was friends bday and instead of asking what we would like for dessert brought one giant piece of chocolate cake with a candle. Having looked at dessert menu before, was not our first choice.

Would I go back? Hmmmmm

We ordered the surf and turf for two which was advertised as having 18 ounces of Filet Mignon. The Filet that was provided had to be less than 12 ounces. We should have said something but did not want to spoil the evening.

At least twice a year our family goes out for a top notch steak dinner and what better place to go Smith & Wollensky's, Atlantic Wharf. I order the filet "black and blue" which is seared outside and warm, red inside. I made a point to let the waitress know how I liked it and my husband replied, if it's over cooked she will send it back. Well, it arrived nearly well done. It went back. I am always saddened when this happens as a really good piece of meat is now in the trash. Why does this have to happen. The second steak was cooked nearly perfectly (the center was cold, red) but at least it was not overcooked. Everything else was perfection.
