When eating at a ‘high end’ steakhouse, the little things are important. What are the little things, well here are a few: Take the order. Write down the order. Repeat the order to the customers. Waiter didn’t seem to do the ‘write down’ part and certainly didn’t do the ‘repeat’ part. When questions were asked to the waiter about the steaks ‘with bones’ it must have confused him. As I ordered a Bone-In-Filet, only to then be served a ribeye with a bone-in, well subsequently both the waiter and the manager failed to do the right thing. Simply stated, this was a Sunday night. Maybe, just maybe there were 12 people in the dining area. Not crazy busy, not overloaded, just business. Can not and will not ever recommend this S&W.

Overall restaurant was very nice, however the restaurant was fairly empty and they seated us in the worst spot. The entire time felt like the staff was just watching us. Not sure I’d go again. Food was ok and worth the price tag.

Great food and service, as you’d expect from this chain of restaurants. The options for non steak eaters was good and plenty of good wine to choose from.

Went for thanksgiving, everyone in our party got the filet which was amazing. I opted for the thanksgiving dinner which was pretty awful. Should have just gone with the filet!

Came here for Thanksgiving day with group of 8. Half of our group ordered the Thanksgiving day special the rest ordered various steaks. The Turkey dinners that were originally presented appeared dry and over cooked. The waitstaff recognized this and returned the meals to the kitchen. The rest of the meals and service was impeccable. Overall dining here was a great experience.

Our waiter and support staff were amazing. Don't make them take earring studs out, it's outdated and sillier looking. He was phenomenal. So was the female bartender before our meal!

Pea soup was brown. Steak tasted like it was boiled, not grilled. Restaurant was overrun by screaming, running children with indifferent parents. Management refused to do anything about it.

I won't be returning.

Looks very nice when you walk in but then goes down hill. Waiter doesn’t introduce himself but starts rattling off some drink options before you even notice he’s talking to you. Food on menu lack descriptions. Ordered a duo filet and made no mention of bacon so they had to take my order back. Mac and cheese side was the most bland excuse for food I had ever tried. Shirley temple was a fail.

First time dining here. My wife and I frequent most of the high-end dining establishments regularly, because we enjoy fine dining, especially steak houses. This occasion was my birthday, and my wife had heard great things about this establishment. However, we ordered the 46oz porterhouse for two, which is not our norm, but sounded like a great idea at the time. Problem was, we asked for medium. Pink warm center, no raw or well done centers, just like the tomahawks that we saw being served. Same nice pink centers. What we received were raw centers, not rare, literally purple raw meat in the center, then after reheating it, they returned a well done piece of meat. We were offered another steak which we accepted, which also came back with raw meat in the center. We tried to eat around it, but gave up and ordered desert. Keep in mind that the staff were excellent and very apologetic, to the point that I felt bad for them having to apologize so often, and the $129.00 steak was removed from our bill.

Ordered the two 4oz filets - good but the seasoning overpowered the meat. Next time just a good quality cut of meat for us -

My first time at S&W. Celebrated my 60th birthday. You came highly recommended and I wasn't disappointed. Had the aged Wagyu tomahawk prime rib. Unreal. Coming back soon.

Excellent, great server (even though our server was a little difficult to hear given the nearby table's noise level). We had a late Friday reservation but were not rushed in any way. I also had Thanksgiving dinner at the same locaiton a few years ago and it was superb. I will be back with family and friends.

I took my husband to Smith & Wollensky to celebrate a special occasion and was not impressed for the money I spent. Burger King has better french fries then the ones we ordered. The fries were dry and over cooked. I was not impressed and will not be going back.

We ordered wine and were offered to decant it which we accepted but it seemed that the waiter was just pouring the wine into the decanter as if he was in a hurry. Not a good look at a high end restaurant. Also S&W need to update their menu for some healthier options including sides that aren’t loaded with cheese or dressing or fried. Lastly desert portions are huge and perhaps reduce the portion and reduce the price so we feel we get what we pay for . Note that stakes were good and server was friendly.
