The landmark Smith & Wollensky in New York City is located on the corner of Third Avenue and 49th Street, serving outstanding steakhouse fare that features USDA Prime steaks, dry aged and butchered on-premise. Opened in 1977, the original Smith & Wollensky has set the standard by which all other steakhouses are judged. The New York Times agrees, calling the restaurant “a steakhouse to end all arguments” and Gourmet said this is the “quintessential New York steakhouse.”

Although Smith & Wollensky has earned its reputation as the quintessential steakhouse, the menu is varied and offers many options beyond the signature exemplary steaks. Guests can also select from a variety of market-fresh seafood, poultry, and lamb. Delicious side dishes complete the meal, such as creamed spinach, hashed browns, and seasonal vegetables. The irresistible dessert selection ends the meal on a memorable note with a variety of decadent, housemade cakes, sorbets, and ice creams.

Worst experience ever. Horrible service, mediocre food, and a psychotic manager, Michael, who screamed at my entire family when we asked him where our food was. He told us we were trouble and he wasn’t interested in our complaints. I have never been spoken to like that in my life, especially from someone in “hospitality”. It took 3 hours, without dessert, I had to get up 6 times to beg for water, our cocktails, and the check.
Never again, stay away!

Food was really great! However, the service was slow and had to request to send our server to our table several times during the dinner. Table cloth was stained and had bread crumbs all over the table when we were seated. Ordered coffee with our dessert but never got it. Disappointed!

They want to call it tourist trap, but it isn’t. It’s a full fetched steakhouse with the best cuts with stable longstanding quality. The service is great and the desserts to die for. It’s a must when in Manhattan.

The steak was excellent but the portions were too large for me and my friend. Definitely for the hungry. Great potato and the services was very attentive. Its a NYC landmark so would recommend to people who have never visited the City before but just be very hungry.

If you're looking for the best steak house in New York City, look no farther than this! From the softshell crab appetizer to the perfectly prepared steak and delightful mousse, this was a meal to remember.

Superb meal (steak with sides of spinach and roasted mushrooms) with S&W proprietary red blend (an excellent Bordeaux type wine at a very reasonable price) followed by a "very large" and delicious carrot cake with a celebratory Armagnac.

Of all the great steakhouses in New York Smith & Wollensky is my favorite. The food, particularly the steak, is excellent. The service is terrific. The wine list is a joy to behold. This restaurant is one of the handful of reasons for me to go to NYC a couple of times a year.

Overpriced steakhouse and served up sub-par food. Steak beyond rare, salmon was overcooked and burnt on the bottom, and the sides were just bland and disappointing. Only good thing about the experience was the waiter who provided great service.

Inattentive wait staff - checked the boxes of checking in with us - but immediately as food was delivered. Medium rare porter house was charred and well done on one end and medium rare on other. Medium rare Colorado rib was medium well. Excellent onion rings and coconut cake. Water glasses were empty for 30 minutes before anyone came by. Extremely difficult to flag anyone down, even to pay our bill

My wife wanted to experience a quintessential NYC steakhouse. None better than Smith & Wollensky. The food is good (order meat- steak). The sides are fine and a necessary accompaniment to the main course- something to break up the generous amount of meat which comes at you. Portions are large and can/should be shared. The service is good and the ambiance has an older school flavor to it. It is definitely an experience. But you pay for it. It is expensive. My wife enjoyed it, so mission accomplished, however it will probably not maker our weekly rotation.
