    Love our steakhouses, all over the world, and loved this one in the past. But bad service, lukewarm filet and sides really sets Smith and Woes way back. No way this is worth the price or the time. Management needs to step in. Del Frisco’s leaves you in the dust.

    Very slow to seat (over booked) and upstairs lacked a restaurant feel - it was like a busy canteen. Once we were sat the waiter team were great and food was lovely. We wouldn’t return.

    Add this to your list of destinations when visiting NYC. This high end steakhouse has been doing it right for over 40 years. Service (watier Ronnie was great!) quality of food, ambience and value. The wine dinner is a great value, which includes appetizer, entree, dessert and "copious" amounts of wine. We loved it and can't wait to go back!

    The food was excellent. Some minor issues. Only 2 raisin rolls, I would have preferred more. Our waiter was not that attentive and we waited pretty long time for our steak. Creamed Spanish seemed a little burnt. We sat upstairs and it was very loud. It was hard to have a conversation. Again these were all minor issues and overall it was a great experience.

    We came to NYC for my son’s 18th birthday and he wanted to visit a steakhouse. S & W was excellent!! They put us at the chef’s table with a window to the kitchen. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly. Every food order was cooked to perfection. They made it an amazing memorable experience, not just for my son but for our entire party of 7.

    Went here for a business dinner. Food: Very disappointed at the cuts of meat! Chef does not know the temps Service: Terrible We were seated before the restaurant got busy., several tables arrived after us and left before us. Service was horrible Wait Staff: They did their best, I assume. Our Server tried to make it right, great humor and personable but Service and food are key. Much better steak houses around. Shameful for this icon restaurant

    Everything met and or exceeded our expectations. Wine, appetizers, and service top notch. Filet mignon you can cut with a fork and perfectly cooked. Reasonably priced for the quality of the restaurant experience. A true New York classic.

    Donal behind the bar saved this visit. Came back after 15 years. Shell of its former self. Upstairs is for tourists, half plaster walls, scrunched tables and fast service to flip tables. We had the porterhouse. No seasoning at all and bland in flavour. Very disappointed...

    Tony took great care of us! The meal was excellent, the steaks cooked to perfection and very flavorful and tender. We also enjoyed branzino and many delicious side dishes. The wines were wonderfully paired. It was a perfect evening and celebration of our son's birthday who was visiting from college. We look forward to returning in the near future!

    DO NOT GO HERE FOR THANKSGIVING! I chose this place out of 100s of others for my mom and I visiting from California on Thanksgiving week. The turkey tasted like the turkey you get from a grocery counter. The stuffing was dry and most of all they ran out of mashed potatoes!!!! On Thanksgiving! We were the 7 PM seating, did they not know what day it was and be prepared??? This is a staple item for any good Thanksgiving dinner. In addition, the waiter named Juan, did not seem to care when he told us they were out and the manager named Josh, tried to make it right by giving us a free desert. But the food was not thanksgiving day worthy. I cannot comment on their normal daily menu, but I can save you the trouble and say there are way better choices in New York than here!!!

    We had our thanksgiving dinner here and the service was exceptional. Our waiter was very attentive and personable and made our thanksgiving very enjoyable and less stressful with our two young children (aged 3 and 8). The food was excellent but the service was top notch.

    It’s disappointing. It’s an iconic place with a chaotic ambience and mediocre food. Sides were nothing special. The waiters are all legacy so they’re going through motions. There was just one I heard(at another table that was exuberant). Otherwise, they were pretty dead in the eyes. Lovely jackets. If only those stars reflected their presence. If you’re looking for a loud place to eat steak- go. Otherwise, I really wish maloney and porcelli was still a thing. Exciting offerings. Ambience was bustling but warm. It’s sad all the good restaurants go away and we’re left with mediocrity.
