We were served a stale baskets of a bread assortment with ice cold butter. Our steak had a strange taste so we stopped eating it. The potatoes were overdone. Just a bad experience all together.

Definitely one of the best steak houses in NYC- its an old school vibe with all of the classics. We went for the wine dinner and really enjoyed ourselves. The outdoor seating is well planned and the food is great- we had the strip and the filet and both were perfect.

Very poor service. This place used to be great, but it’s time has passed

Update…I just learned from my daughter who was at dinner with us, one of the servers referred to my wife as a “Putta”…lucky I did not hear this or there would have been a real problem.

Do not go here

Cannot be beat either for a corner outdoor seat or for bar standing room. The dining experience cannot be topped in Manhattan.
The gentleman old timer waiter is reminiscent of a level of service which has nearly vanished in the United States.

Our experience at S&&W was outstanding! From the minute we walked in the host greeted us with a smile and was ver accommodating. Our server/waiter Juan was superb and extremely helpful with the menu. We would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back! The best veal chop I have ever had! Excellent wine choices !

We had a wonderful dinner at Smith and Wollensky. Everything we ordered was excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We’ve eaten her a few time when in NYC and we always try to have a dinner here because we’re never disappointed.

Nobody can eat steak night (well certainly I can’t), but every once in a blue moon is fine. If you are going to indulge there is no better place than S&W. It may not be cheap, but service is always spot on and quality of the meat can’t be any better.

We waited about 45 mins for our food. Mushrooms were dry; lam chops were ok but, frankly, not as tasty as Capital Grille. Not as good as I always remembered S&W. I realize COVID posed great challenges but at these prices, you have to do better.

I have eaten here just about every time I am in NY. I have never had a bad meal or bad service in the past. This past visit was not like the others…let me start by saying my filet was delicious and cooked to perfection. I ordered a mixed green salad to start, and it was a bowl of lettuce. Part of the appeal to Smith & Wollensky is superior service…

This is clearly an institution that prides itself on tradition. The food was very good but the service discombobulated : one waiter taking orders, the other serving - but one dish at a time for the same course. The sommelier gave great advice though. On the whole, I expected a more rounded and fluid service.

We went to the weekend wine dinner and it was very nice, with great steak (we upgraded to the porterhouse for two) and delicious and copious other courses and wine. Highly recommended and a really good value!

Steaks are good, service was spotty at best and they didn't have many things we had ordered. They compensated with free creamed spinach....they seriously did.

Typically we would go to Benjamin while in NYC however we decided to try here instead. The food and service were excellent. Pork belly, porter house for 2, lamb chop and grill fish were scrumptious. BTW the house Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa valley was too good!
