Far and away the worst fine dining experience I've had in a while. We started off at the bar, where Joe barked at us to order the moment we sat down. He was incredibly rude for no reason, and reminds me of service you'd receive at a late night dive bar. I kindly mentioned it to the manager at the host stand who apologized, but just shrugged it off and said "It's just Joe, he's been here over 20 years". Befuddled, we went to our table.

The server is the only reason I gave anything above a 1 star. He bent over backwards to make up for the non-existent assistant waiter and the woefully behind kitchen. He really tried his best to overcome the rest of the staff at the restaurant. We waited approximately 40 minutes for our meal. I ordered my steak medium rare, and it came out almost nearly raw (I'm flexible but this was black and blue). The spinach and other sides were cold as well. Once everything was heated up the food was decent. We spoke to the manager upon leaving who went out of his way to let us know how little of importance our experience was to him.

We've eaten at the S go there instead.

We've been going to Smith & Wollensky for several years now for our anniversary, we made reservations for 9 p.m. we got there a little early around 8:30 so they asked us to wait by the bar which was a very hot because the AC had broken, while we were at the bar we ordered some drinks and a dozen oysters as we we're eating one of the waiters was behind the bar apparently someone had made a mistake in ordered dozen oysters so he offered them to us we said thank you I told him it was our anniversary he said no worries it was his pleasure when the tab came they had added the second order of oysters to the tab. It was a little after 9 but no one had came to get us so when I inquired about our table we waited another 5 minutes before we got one. The server was excellent at least she did her job right.

We sat down at 6 for dinner and didn’t leave until about 9. People at another table got their food before us. Manager came and apologized. Steak was very salty and creamed spinach was room temperature. Wasn’t worth the money we paid for the meal.

My wife and I went for V-Day, we were seated right away around 8:00pm, we had 8:30pm reservations. Service was very rushed, we didn’t have any specials offered to us or any wine suggestions, after five minutes we were asked if we knew what we wanted to order... We were seated inside by the water, great view but the ambience was not that nice, very loud, baby crying, and extremely tight, several times I had the waiter for the table next to us so close I had to stop eating until he finished taking care of them...

Over all, it wasn’t a pleasant experience, I’m sure it had to be because of V-Day and the rush to get as many people in and out as possible.

The food was ok, our steaks were room temp at best and portions were very small.

I guess we would give them another chance on a regular night one day but would never go back on V-Day.

El tartar de steak delicioso, la ensalada cesar de las mejores que he comido. El bone-in NY steak decepcionante porque fueron incapaces de hacer un término medio en la carne en 3 oportunidades, 2 veces Rare y una re-cocción del primer steak que me trajeron quemado por afuera totalmente. No entiendo como un restaurante de esta categoría no fue capaz de servir un término medio perfecto.

The fact we seemed to be forgotten in the corner of the outdoor seating. We had to wait for 15 mins to be seated outside, so we were standing there with nothing for 15 mins. Until a table was cleaned and ready, and the table I was sat at was still dirty.

The service was great. I think the quality of the steak was not as good as some other steak houses I have visited. The steak I had was charred to much on the outside which really masked the taste of what I assume was a good steak. I thought it was cooked a little too much. For the prices I think it would have been better.

Understanding it was Valentines Day but the service was unacceptable for a nice restaurant. The cost for four was $600 so certainly we expected nothing but first class service.

Once we finally received our meal the rib eye was rare and we ordered medium - we sent it back to be redone. Very frustrating for the other guests who waited patiently for the corrected steak.

The server was expected to do everything from taking orders /refilling water and clearing the tables. We were there for 3 hours and finally all got up to meet him to get our check after asking several times. We have previously dined at Smith and Wollensky and it was very nice.

My husband and I ate here for our five year anniversary. We don’t eat out at expensive places very often but we do know what to expect as far as quality of service and quality of food. We both felt the service was not equivalent to what you would pay at a high dollar steakhouse. It was lacking in attention. We weren’t checked on for long lengths of time, poured our own wine in our glasses with the bottle we bought, food took an hour and half to come out. We ordered the aged ribeye. It was not flavorful or tender like a $68 ribeye should be. We honestly felt it was of grocery store quality. We also ordered a lobster tail to go with it and there was absolutely zero seasoning or flavor on that. The view from the top of the deck is a great one and you can enjoy seeing boats and cruise ships as they go by. The truffle Mac and cheese was by far the best part of the meal as the Brussels sprouts weren’t fully cooked. My suggestion is just have some drinks and find a different steakhouse. We paid $234 for the meal and could have eaten at our favorite steakhouse in Austin, trulucks for half the price and enjoyed the food and service so much more.

I was looking forward to celebrating a birthday with my significant other last week.
I made a reservation one full month ahead of time and even took the time to notify the restaurant of us celebrating a birthday.
Regardless of this, it too over 30 min to even be sat at a table. Once we were sat, it took over 15 min to be seen by anyone, not even a glass of water, once we did order we had a great waiter so I was hopeful things would get better. Ordering our appetizer and meal at the same time I thought we would be fine.

It took over an hour and a half to get our food served. While the manager did come over at this point to apologize and explain they were aware of the problem, it still took an additional 30 min to have the food served to our table.

My reservation was set for 8pm we did not receive food until 1045pm.
Needless to say we did not stay after with dessert to celebrate the birthday.

I would like to note that we did tip over 20% as I understand this was not the fault of the waiter. Regardless, knowing that I would be sending a few hundred dollars for this special dinner coupled with the fact that I made this reservation well on advanced, there needs to be serious changes to the way customers are treated at this location.
Very disappointed and most likely will never be back here.

Having eaten in their flagship store in NYC for years, we wanted the same experience here in Florida. I must admit the restaurant is beautifully done. We had to send back our steak for more fire. We ordered medium and it came rare. That always puts a damper on things. Our server was very nice and attentive, but it took a little too longer for everything. Not a bad thing, but the poor guy seemed frazzled. All in all a 4 and would try it again.
