About Smith & Wollensky - New York

Smith & Wollensky - New York Ratings and Reviews
Two of dined. Mine was wonderful, but left an aftertaste. The other member of my party did not like his steak at all and said it was equivalent to something like an Applebee’s steak. We had parmesan cauliflower and it was undercooked. The price was extreme high. I would go back, but the other member of my party would not.
Wonderful food! I had the lobster cocktail appetzer and was amazed that it included the whole lobster, tail and claws cracked open, of course! My daughter's crabcake was delish! I had filet mignon and it practically melted in my mouth! My daughter's steak was equally delightful! My chocolate mousse cake was an excellent ending. We had a great evening. Must return more often.
When the waiter realized that my sister and I were there for a small appetizer and a glass of wine, I guess he realized there were better things to do; and completely forgot about. Curiously enough, that same waiter has been in charge of my table during business lunches ans it appear thar his courtesy is proportionate to the check. To add insult to the aggravation, the lady checking the coats forgot to give me a token (I checked a single coat and we were a party of two) and her first reaction was “you lost it”; which by definition it’s impossible, because we did not leave the table or the restaurant. Therefore, if ever given, was within the premides. The manager - very polite- had to intervene. She never apologized.
Epic meal. Started with the "Seafood Tower" (our term) special appetizer with prawns, lobster and oysters - which was amazing. My daughter ordered the Branzino, the rest of us got steaks - bone in were the best - ultra tender. Everything cooked to perfection and delicious. Sides of beautiful thick, perfectly cooked asparagus and our always favorite, Mac n cheese. Shared a wedge and the tomato/burata salads which was perfect for 5 of us after the seafood. Topped everything with a really nice Cabernet - it was a dinner to remember. Only negative was our table was tucked in the back and a little cramped - but the food and service was excellent, as always!
