State Grill and Bar is always an excellent choice. I had apple salad and the spaghetti chitarra as part of the business lunch. Both dishes were delicious. The service was great and the price most reasonable. They even serve a cookie plate with the business lunch.

Loved the entrees.....steak, salmon and pasta. Man and cheese was delicious too. A little disappointed in the chocolate cake and ice creams.

Visited for our friends birthday and had an amazing time. Our server, Jay, did a great job at explaining the pre-fixe dinner to us and allowed us to swap items on the menu for other.

Beautiful food, friendly service. Such a lovely treat for our wedding anniversary. They even held our take out until we’d visited the observatory too. Highly recommend

What a way to start our break in New York to celebrate my wife's birthday. having first visited the Empire State Building we had booked a table in the restaurant for a fixed rate 3 course meal, we did in fact add a little supplement to upgrade some of the courses. Our server was exceptional and explained all our options, we where swiftly served with a much needed beverage and following a little time for deliberations we ordered our food. The quality of the food and presentation was first class and portions were hearty, so much so that we had to have a take out bag for our desserts.
If you are fortunate enough to be in New York then I would highly recommend a visit to this eating establishment.

Our experience was fantastic from start to finish. From being seated to our meals and interactions, everything was just perfect. The meal was amazing and an excellent deal for what we got. We did the deal with starters, entrees, and drinks, and we literally could hardly eat any dinner that night, as we were still full. Thank you for such an amazing experience for our 2 little girls.

The servers were not attentive and the atmosphere did not feel welcoming. I am thankful for the hostess who was warm. After the appetizer, we decided to dine elsewhere which was disappointing as I was excited to try this restaurant.

State Grill was a very pleasant pre-concert surprise in MSG area. A nice find amongst a sea of Irish pubs- first time there, highly recommend it and thanks to Jay for the excellent service!!

My fiancé and I went there to celebrate Valentine’s Day and ordered the pre-fixed V-Day meal. Overall, the service was great, but the food was mediocre. I get it, it’s a pre-fixed meal, but for the price charged for the meal served it did not equate.

(Appetizers)- squash soup was bland and the cheese fondu was cold.

(Main Course)- half chicken was good, but the side vegetable serving was not sufficient. Additionally, we ordered the beef with mash potatoes which was good, but under seasoned.

(Dessert) ordered the red velvet dessert, which was way too sweet and the accompanying cream did not pair well.

The Valentines menu was $65 per person, but the meals and appetizers all had markups. The steak we ordered was undercooked. The cocktails were good, but expensive. The atmosphere was not romantic for Valentines Day. Overall the experience was not great.

Waiter was super charming, professional and very familiar with the menu. Everyone we came in contact with - hostess, waiter, bread guy - were memorably sweet and good. Food is always great - a bit pricey but it's usually expensed and I love this place for a business lunch and/or drinks.

The oatmeal especially this time of year is excellent. The new version with spiced poached apples is very good, just a hint of spice. The new housemade biscuits with maple/butter and preserves is a definite any time. As usual Luis is our favorite waiter, the others are very good, he is just exceptional.

During restaurant week we took in dessert and cocktails on the main menu before heading to a Bdwy show. The meal presentation was beautiful; the waitress charming but didn’t provide a spoon for creme caramel before we asked; a bit pricey for small plates but very tasty. Cocktails well prepared.

Breakfast was interesting with the new menu, a bit of a twist. Pancakes are too dark for me, although I like the idea of buckwheat and pear. Our guest enjoyed his eggs, potatoes and veggie sausage. I felt the fruit was under ripe, and not at it's best today, usually excellent.

It was a quiet cold night so the restaurant was basically to ourselves. It was nice and intimate. The food was outstanding. We ordered the Filet and the Cauliflower. I was greatly impressed with the Cauliflower both in flavor and portion. The grilled octopus was also an outstanding appetizer.

My family visited to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday. Service is excellent. Nice, comfortable relaxed atmosphere. Food was tasty and well prepared. Drinks are great. Prices are to be expected for the venue. We all enjoyed our meals. It was a lovely evening. Time well spent. Great birthday memories! Wonderful place for a memorable evening out.

Surprisingly wonderful. You are dining at the base of the Empire State Building. Deco everywhere. You can view the kitchen staff hard at work as you approach the entrance. From hostesses, to maitre’ed, to waiter, everyone was energetic and accommodating. The food was pleasing and exceptional. Short rib; divine, Lamb shank with lentils; sweet and aromatic, free-range chicken; perfection and filet mignon a generous portion and perfectly cooked to order. Enjoyed our conversations, overall a good human experience in the center of Manhattan. PS Don’t skip the desserts!
