    My fiance and I had a nice meal here. Staff was very friendly and attentive. I was very excited to try their prime rib and it didn't disappoint. I enjoyed every bite! We were also pleasantly surprised by their corn off the cob summer special and it was some of the best corn we have ever had.

    Given all the great food available in the city, it is the overall dining experience that makes the difference. Smith and Wollensky was the experience that I was expecting. When I worked in the City 25 years ago, Smith and Wollensky was a favorite place to dine. I took my wife here on my first visit since then, and it was nice to see that they have maintained the level of service and food This is especially true given that they were closed for 14 months during the pandemic. The menu is exactly what one would expect at a steak house; there are no surprises. That is a good thing. They claim to have the best prime rib in New York. That is a stratospheric claim, but it may well be true. There are many fine steak houses in the city. If you like one with tradition, history, outstanding food and superior service, this is the place. There is one bit of trivia for the first time diner. Servers' jackets carry one star for each five years working there and one bar on the sleeve for each additional year. Juan, who was our server, had 3 stars and 3 bars indicating that he had worked there 18 years. No server in our area had fewer than two stars. That says something about the place. That is probably whey the wait staff works together as one fluid team. Juan mostly acted as team captain during the meal. Other members of the team stopped by to see if we were satisfied. When I asked on for something, it appeared. There is no, "I'll let your server know...". Expensive, yes, but you are paying for an experience that is well worth it.

    We celebrated my birthday here. The wine and dinner special after 8 p.m. was amazing! We had 10 oz filet and a bone in ribeye that was delicious! The Mac n cheese side, calamari, Caesar salad, wedge salad, and desserts were fabulous! We will definitely be coming back! Excellent service and wait staff too!

    Service was excellent. Very attentive without being over bearing. The prices are usual for a steak house. High but the portions were very generous. We had the thick slice bacon appetizer. First time ever I took home a appetizer. It was huge. Definitely recommend.

    Great food and a very attentive waiter, who made sure we were happy with our total experience. Love the ambience and the food was top notch. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and we couldn’t ask for a better experience. Hadn’t been here in over 20yrs and nice to know it’s still one of my favorite restaurants in NYC.

    Absolutely must make a pilgrimage to S&W’s every time I’m in the city! The steaks are perfect Every time! The only challenge is knowing that your eyes will almost definitely be larger than your stomach because you’ll want to order Everything! Also, if you’re lucky, ask Paul about his peppers…a deliciously spicy surprise for those in the know :)
