    For all the hype, the food was a bit disappointing. It wasn’t bad, but I’ve had many better steaks. The one bright spot on the food side was the crab cake appetizer. It was perfect. Everything else was just meh. Service was excellent.

    Server was brash and tried to rush along. when you are spending this kind of money you do not need to be dictated the pace of your dining experience. Too many other high end steak houses in Manhattan that have better service.

    The only challenge was noise level. This was due to a large birthday celebration party. It made table conversation a challenge at our table. Other than that, it’s was excellent as usual!

    Ambience, service, starters, sides were all good. Unfortunately the porterhouse was a disappointment. It lacked flavor and seasoning. Hate to have to add salt to my $140 piece of meat.

    For the meat eaters this is one of its shrines in New York. it's expensive, everything is a la carte. Everything was good except the rib eye was not really seasoned. It is a quality piece of meat so it was a shame.

    We were looking forward to a wonderful dinner to celebrate our 2nd Anniversary. Unfortunately, the main stars of the show were very underwhelming. The good: The service was incredible! The old fashioned my wife ordered was great! They set us up at a great table for our party of three, which included our 1 year old. The oysters and sides we ordered (Brussels sprouts and fries) were really good! They even brought out a surprise coconut cream cake slice at the end to celebrate our anniversary! The not so good: Both of our steaks were nearly flavorless except for the taste of char. The cook of the steaks? Perfect! However, the crust of the steaks mostly tasted like charcoal. My wife ordered the recommended sirloin and I ordered the Cajun rib steak. Both were unfortunately underwhelming and my steak was even greasy. Also, don’t order the restaurant branded red blend glass of wine. Based on this experience with the food, I would not recommend it, especially when considering the price.

    Dinner for three, ordered some cocktails and the small seafood tower to start. All were promptly served and excellent. We then ordered the prime rib, bone-in sirloin, and the ribeye. Steaks were all cooked perfectly, will definitely be back. The best part though was our service, specifically our waiter Tony D. who was attentive enough yet not overbearing. His wine suggestion was spot on and a new favorite to add to the roster of go-to steak pairing reds. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire meal, never felt rushed and was gifted our last round by Tony. Will be requesting him next time I am there.

    I took my husband there for birthday dinner since he wanted to try their prime rib. Prime rib was good, the sides were great, the desserts (my fave was the coconut with mango ice cream), and a few of the wait staff sang 'Happy Birthday' to my husband when bringing out the dessert! Overall an outstanding experience!

    Main courses were excellent, as was the service. The appetizers and sides were really suboptimal, the clam chowder had an overwhelming amount of bacon flavor. The potato au gratin side dish I ordered was not fresh, and generally unappealing. Dessert was excellent. I feel given the price per cover that the overall quality was a disappointment.

    The food was delicious my friend and I did the wine dinner special and it was totally worth it. The entire meal from the crab cake , the signature salad and the filet Mignon were amazing. The Onions rings were the best I ever had. I would definitely recommend this place and will come back with a bunch of friends

    Filet Mignon Au Poivre was excellent and perfectly cooked. Same for the prime rib. Mashed potatoes were excellent. Creamed spinach was good, not too liquid like as some are. Multiple birthday celebrations in the upstairs area made it almost impossible to hear each other. If you go, I suggest you ask the host if there are groups upstairs.

    Service was phenomenal but there’s something going on in the kitchen. Medium Rare filet was VERY rare. Clam chowder wasn’t good. Maybe tarragon? Augratin potato dish we had to send back as texture was strange. Very nice place tho.

    We did the wine weekend menu and it was great. Salad, filet, dessert and house wine for $95 pp. The sides are extra and HUGE. We each got one and it was too mucj food. The only drawback is the noise. It is soo loud that conversation is difficult but overall great dinner and experience!

    There is nothing wrong with S&W but it’s traditional approach isn’t for us. Huge portions and limited sides (no fries) / it’s an iconic restaurant but one we wouldn’t return to. Service nice, but just very 1990’s
