The portions of steak were large, but no flavor and not cooked to our preferences the first time. All the steaks lacked flavor and the sides were all bland. Only good experience was our waiter who was amazing.
Top notch across the board. Paco our waiter was great. M'atredee was exceptional as well. Made sure our birthday was great
We lived in NYC for many years, still come back for doctors and family, best steakhouse then
and now, never disappoints
Vacation trip to New York Dinner
This was one of the few top steak restaurants in NY that I had not yet tried. It was worth the wait. Old school interior, outstanding service, large portions and good food.
Old world wonderful! Amazing service. It was my wife’s birthday celebrating with her parents. We really enjoyed the full experience. Thank you Sparks.
Sparks is one of our favorite NYC favorites . It’s expensive ( but worth it) so we don’t go there on a “regular” basis but I would love to be able to go all the time. We tend to go there for celebrations and this time was for our anniversary. The atmosphere, food, and service were outstanding. We had another great meal and as usual the restaurant made it a special evening and acknowledged our special day with a special anniversary decorated desert. Class!
Amazing steak. This place knows how to do it right.
One of the best steaks we've had in a long time, a sirloin, which we don't usually get, superb!! Super service, great old room!
disappointing/have been meaning to eat there for years-strip good not great/service efficient-not friendly
lobster shrimp combo-at best-just ok/ambiance was depressing/presentation are you kidding?!!!
peter luger's far superior and better overrall
Excelente todo muy rico la atención fue excelente recomendado al 100%
Made a Saturday Evening Reservation for 2, arrived early and proceeded to sit a bar. The bar staff was knowledgeable and friendly. At no time , did we feel rushed. Ordered a bottle of wine, steak and fish were cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable. Highly recommended.
Thanks for a great experience. Enjoy!
The food was just ok but for the price I expect good to great will not be back theres so many other restaurants to try around
Old world charm. Food cooked to perfection and service was impeccable
I had been to Sparks several times in the past and had positive experiences. For that reason, I recommended to a friend and his family that we go there while visiting NYC. Unfortunately, this time the experience was for from positive. My son had the veal chop and it was literally burned black on the outside and they actually served it. Everyone at the table (6) was shocked at what the waiter placed on the table. Of course we sent it back right away. Also,the service was sub par overall for what you expect at a very expensive steak house. They forgot to bring two of our sides and we had to ask them several times to get them. My friend had eaten half of his steak before the hash brown potatoes finally arrived at the table.
Lastly, and as simple as it seems, getting water glasses refilled was a real challenge, as there was a very large party adjacent to us, and they clearly took priority over our party of six, so the service would dictate: even though we had been seated well before the large party.
Best steak in NYC and beyond!
Actually no service at all but the waiter who serve us force us to paid 25% tips which I find ridiculous.........
Food quality are acceptable but not unforgettable!
Consistent old standard
Took a group of international business associates in for dinner, they all LOVED it! Love the staff and hospitality at Sparks!!
Be sure to order the steak which is excellent, I ordered the lemon sole and was very disappointed. It is totally plain, served with a lemon which I guess is why they called it lemon sole but I was expecting a lemon sauce. It’s a very pricey place so I was sad. Also the table next to us had a drunk woman who was so loud she kind of ruined our meal at this historic restaurant...our waiter didn’t try very hard to give us a memorable experience. I am bummed since I heard it was the best...I tried my husbands steak and it was very good.
Always a "win"! Get food, great service. A true NYC experience. Try the large lobster, it is amazing!!!
I only gave it four stars because I had an 8pm reservation And I wasnt seated until almost 8:30pm because they forgot about us and took a couple that came in after us before us. The tall man who works the seating/reservation section of the restaurant was nasty to his staff in front of everyone. Not good for vegetarians or vegans.
Interior was very old school steak house and lovely. Definitely has its regulars which is always a good thing. Had a steak and wife had the lobster and scallops. Both were good but not great. Have visited steak houses in every city we have been in and Sparks was ok but not outstanding.
Everything was excellent from the appetizer to the dessert tray!
We were visiting and wanted a classic N.Y. steakhouse experience. Sparks delivered that to us big time! The ambiance and decor is old school and cool at the same time. We were not looking for a chain restaurant. We all had the steak with Roquefort cheese on top and one Chilean sea bass. All cooked to perfection! Sides were excellent with hash browns the favorite. Drinks delivered on time with the right flavor profiles. As good as the meal was for us, the service was even better. The best service I have experienced in a long time was delivered by our server Oscar. Sharp, knowledgeable, and friendly service was performed at a very high level! Oscar was the star of the show. Yeah, we spent some $$ but he made it all worth it!
First time at Sparks after many years of desiring to go. Old NY ,welcoming NY Steak House. Food and service as expected “Superior”
Can not wait to visit again.
A Bar with bottles to amaze. A wine list that requires reading time that is more than you have time for. So impressive. !!!!
Great experience. We ordered the Filet and some other steaks. Had a bunch of apps. All the food was tasty. One big thing difference between sparks and other steak houses. Their steaks and cooking style was less oily. So as you are eating you are not getting hit with the over the top feeling of how heavy the food is. Dessert was great as well. Would go back again
The iconic Sparks is always exceptional. Amazing service and food.
Best Sirloin steak by far I ever had $57 well worth it. The stuffed clams for $18 were horrible, small and just bread crumbs . Good house wine! Great deserts. A fun night with friends. Don’t always frequent restaurants this expensive but $11 for potatoes and sides are expensive.
Great service, the food was fabulous !
Mashed potatoes too soupy. Steak was excellent. Ambiance was a little old fashioned.
Amazing service, top notch steak, and a cozy atmosphere. The wine list was outstanding.
Annual Birthday dinner with a friend at one of our favorite city restaurants. Food and service was excellent, as always. Didn’t expect the Thursday before Labor Day to have quite the buzz it had and that was a pleasant surprise.
Great spot! Great service! Who’d def recommend to anyone who loves a good steak
Not sure which was worse: a “fine” steakhouse that cannot deliver a steak cooked to order or a lying Maitre’D. A real disappointing dining experience. . Asked for medium, my steak arrived rare. After a second attempt, my steak arrived medium rare. Maitre’ D came over and said steak would be comped since his kitchen twice failed to deliver my steak as ordered. Of course when the $800 bill arrived, I was charged and Maitre’D said he sent over a comped birthday dessert for someone in our party and that was good enough to make up for a poorly cooked steak. Perhaps time has passed this restaurant by or perhaps it is time for a new Maitre’D.
Great service from Oscar and team. It was a good meal.
Great service and excellent meal. We really enjoyed our special date.
Sparks is a NYC legendary steak house. I think it's worth a visit, but this wasn't the best steak for me. Maybe this just isn't my type of steak house. It was a great night with friends.
The service was just about OK- and the portions large. But the order was wrong- completely wrong.
When the steak did arrive it was grossly under-cooked completely rare and cold inside. I consider this dangerous. ( the orders were both butterfly medium.
Really over priced for the quality. No visit here again for us!!
The steaks at Sparks are substantially better than any steakhouse I've visited in Manhattan, the service has been impeccable each time I've dined there and the ambiance is unique and inviting. Absolutely worth the time and effort to dine there.
