    I really enjoyed the meal! So delicious, we got the filet mignon and the rib eye. Delicious char around both steaks. Cooked well. The mac and cheese was AMAZING. Highly recommend. The only problem was the noise, it was SO noisy it was hard to hear my husband talking to me across the table.

    Not my first visit by any means but the least satisfying. Quality of meat was great as expected, but had a over-seared feel to it and zero char that I could detect. My wife's filet was great, if not a bit on the "too rare" side (as is often to be expected nowadays). Our sides were smallish (whipped potatoes were tasty, just not worth their price) and there was barely enough to share, The asparagus spears were the largest we had ever seen and they were well prepared, but lacked any seasonings whatsoever. Our booth was tight and the ambiance hasn't changed in the 20-odd years that I've been coming here. The service was very professional but not overly attentive: a waiter should be the last line of defense for the diner, and recognize when the bread is too stale to be served. We feel like we've "been here and done that" and will look for another trademark steak joint in NYC the next time we are here. No doubt, S&W should be experienced, but there are lots of other choices.

    We were seated immediately at a small corner table. It took quite some time for the waiter to get to us. It was a Sunday evening so figured it would be busy. We placed our order and it did take some time but figured it was due to the way we wanted our steaks cooked (medium well). After we received our food a large group of UN dignitaries walked I with security. They were give priority from that point on. Our tables were not tended to a long time then finally when they came we ordered dessert and coffee. 20 min later they came with cold coffee and the cake. We told them right away our beverages were cold. They told us they would bring fresh cups which took another 10-15 min, at this point there was no more milk. Once we asked we waited again at which point the coffee was lukewarm. All of this to say I guess our patronage was not important enough that no one checked in on us.

    We have been huge fans of Smith and Wollensky; food is delicious and the service is wonderful! We always opt for the Weekend Wine dinner, which is a phenomenal value, and Benny takes excellent care of us. You can’t go wrong with anything your order but the filet is out of this world.

    The steak was very off… the explanation I got was it might have passed the 35 day old dry age time, so that’s the flavor.. “but is should still taste good” it didn’t… 1st time here very disappointing…

    My issue is 2 people in a party of 8 ordered med steaks and were given medium well steaks and when someone dressed in a suit (which one would assume was a manager) asked how everything was going, and was told of the issue, his response was "well if it wasn't such a thick cut we could do something but since it is it will be a long wait". Then took $15 off the bill. Seriously, I have eaten in many steak houses over the years and have never received such a response when the kitchen overcooked a steak. Very disappointing especially since more could have been done and the experience tarnished a memory that was held in honor of my late husband. This was his favorite steak house and we were there as a memorial birthday celebration in his honor.

    Too many tables jammed together. Too many chairs. Uncomfortable. No room for the wait staff to navigate. Wait staff & serving carts bumped into chairs. The noise level was beyond loud. The food was excellent - ate a little & requested a to-go bag. Anything to get out quickly

    Went for the sandw wine and dine experience. Hubby's steak was raw had to send it back was still raw. It was like the waiter went out his way to explain the offer we asked him three times cos we didn't understand him, and it still didn't make sense. And neither did the bill was $250 without tip. Service not great, very noisy, very overpriced, food.. my husband's steak made me feel sick.

    Service was a let-down here. They forgot to bring the wine we ordered with our meal. We had to wait 15 mins past our reservation time. Table was not cleaned in between courses. One of the waiters brushed us off each time we tried to get his attention. Food was solid, but no desire to go back soon. Other places like keens are better in terms of food and experience (just our opinion!).

    We went early and had an incredible experience! Many of the wait staff have been there 20 or more years and really know how to treat their patrons. We had Sam and a host of others. They made great suggestions for how to get the most value for what we wanted (steak and lobster, chopped wedge, au gratin loaded potatoes AND dessert). Best dinner I’ve had in NYC

    Slow service, over cooked meat and an ambiance in dire need of an update. And with top-end prices (which are ok to pay for the right meal), this particular S&W was a poor representation of what they usually are. Find another choice in NYC.

    Certainly one of the best picks for a steak. Even though pricy when compared with other steakhouses it is and remains special due to its combination of great food, atmosphere and very good wines.
