Always a great meal met friends from out of state who have never been. All loved it.
My husband and I went for a belated anniversary trip. We absolutely loved everything about it! The food was amazing! We had the filet mignon (it’s huge) and the sirloin. Both were cooked perfectly. The creamed spinach and Caesar salad were good as well. Service was great! Cheesecake and drinks were wonderful. We will definitely come back here when in NYC again! Dinner here was worth the trip to NYC! Best food of the weekend. My favorite steak ever!
Excellent dinner. Shared the mixed salad, a 3 pound lobster and a mixed fruit vanilla ice cream dessert. All with a very good Sancerre. Great service and ambiance. Very hard to beat their lobsters. Love them. Highly recommended
Here for a play In NYC
This was one of the better steakhouse experiences in NYC. Large portion of filet with formage and excellent sautéed onions. The waiter was very meticulous with service. Overall would recommend to anyone as one of the finest restaurants in NYC.
Restaurant was overcrowded and did not honor reservations on time.
Well they did not honor our reservation as they were overwhelmed and overbooked they were rude and inhospitable and there are way too many other great steak houses in the city to go to so I will likely never try to go back and will visit one of the many other steak restaurants that are better and honor reservations
7:15 reservation and we had to wait over one hour to be seated. Seems like people they know get bumped up in line.
Would be nice to be prepared for a wait if it was going to be so long.
We went Sparks with our important customer. Service was excellent. Condition of the steak is perfect.
Steaks were both over cooked
Spinach salad OK but not great
Waiter never filled empty water glass and wanted to take our meal order before giving us our cocktails
Best part of dinner was dessert... and my wife only had ice cream
Not worth the price
There are many better steakhouses in New York
Out waiter must have just started...had zero clue... everything was slow...had to ask three times for drinks
Service was very good. Have dined at many steak houses, and while Sparks was good, it is not at the top of my list based upon value. Would eat there again, however, would not be first choice for steakhouse resstuarants.
A quintessential top notch NYC steakhouse. The meats are superb excellently prepared with the right char on the outside. As good as it gets. Good old fashioned “wise guy” service. Sides were all good. A worthy place
A very good meal in a traditional setting. The NY syrloin stake is wonderful. Service is outstanding and very friendly. It’s expensove, but it paya. Higly reccomendable
We had an amazing experience from the appetizer to the salad to the dinner to the desert. The filet mignon was the best I’ve ever had. The Irish coffee was superb. The adorable young man who waited on us said he was new but he treated us so attentively and professionally. It was a fabulous experience.
Unfassbar gutes Restaurant und Service... Habe schon viele Restaurants in meinem Leben besucht, aber dieses ist außergewöhnlich! Tolles Essen und fantastischer Service... Das Ambiente ist auch ein Traum!!
I had heard of the famous (infamous?) SPARKS STEAKHOUSE from back in the day when Paul Castellano use to haunt the place. Ever since I'm trying to find an excuse to get to New York and see what all the fuss was about. It was worth it! Ambiance is like a time capsule to the steakhouses of yesteryear...classic, warm, and very upscale. Drinks at the bar were superb. And the steaks were not to be believed. My sirloin, and my wife's filet, were among the best we've ever had. Made us forget Capital Grill and Ruth's Chris. I recommend the mushroom caps and the stuffed baked potato as your sides. My wife commented that her berries and ice cream dessert was the best she has eaten. FAIR WARNING, though.... you are gonna pay for all this quality and deliciousness. But, would we do it all again? ABSOLUTELY. And we will next time we're in NYC. I give Sparks an enthusiastic five stars. Can't wait to go again.
Incredible fast service,attentive wait staff and wonderful food!
This place never disappoints. Excellent food and service
Food was great, a bit overpriced because you don’t get sides, staff was courteous.
FOR A FAMOUS STEAKHOUSE, THE FOOD WAS MEDIOCRE AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING SPECIAL.
STEAKS WERE COOKED TO THE WRONG TEMPERATURE AND HAD TO SEND THEM BACK. SPINACH HAD NO TASTE. MASH POTATOES WERE WATERY. WE WERE THERE TO CELEBRATE BROTHER'S BIRTHDAY AND EVERYONE WAS SO DISAPPOINTED !!
Excellent steak. Awkward arranging 3rd mortgage during meal but...dang...the meal had to be paid for!
One of the most generous and delicious steaks ever!! Great service too.
Amazing atmosphere and sensational steaks. Portions are HUGE so consider sharing.
Treat yourself. YOLO!
Good meals as usual. It is a bit noisy, esp. for old aviators with occupational hearing loss.
We visited Sparks for the first time and were extremely impressed by both the service and the quality of the food. We had a couple cocktails at the bar before being seated and that was a lovely experience as well. Our waiter Allen was phenomenal and we will be requesting him upon our return
We had the filet mignon, cooked to perfection, very tender and tasty
Excelente todo, muy recomendable
Best steak in NYC....ask to sit in the no shooting section!
We were in town celebrating an anniversary. My husband was excited to visit the restaurant based on it being the location of a mob hit. We were seated promptly (even before our reservation time), and the service was impeccable. The steak was good, but not great. Bread and sides were fine... but I expected a bit more from a $250 meal in NYC. My meat was partly undercook, but the waitstaff made it right immediately. Again cannot day enough about the great service.
The food was very good but not outstanding for the price. Generous proportion. Ambiance was exceptionally authentic and quaint. Service was outstanding!
I haven't been to Sparks recently and was very pleased with the food and ambiance the same as I visited the last time.
Wonderful experience at Spark’s. Funny and friendly bartenders - and they make a terrific dirty martini. Host and wait staff have great personalities and service. For dinner we started with the lump crab cocktail - highly recommend. Ordered the filet (cooked MR) and it was done perfectly. The sautéed mushrooms and mashed potatoes paired perfectly. Wish I would have ordered the hash browns - they looked delicious!
From pouring the Wine to serving the meal, Miguel was the BEST! We had a romantic evening, starting with the wine. We never felt rushed. Miguel timed the evening perfectly! Sparks has warm lighting and white table cloth setting making for an elegant dining room experience!
The service was extremely poor. Our waiter was too busy chit chatting with his fellow coworkers to fill our water glasses not even ONCE. I ordered strip steak medium rare. I was overwhelmed by the extremely burnt taste of the outside of the steak I couldn’t taste any actual flavor from the meat. Disgusting.... At least the cheescake was good..... I will not be going back. The whole experience was not worth my money at all. Shame.
Good food - but not great , standard NYC prices. Atmosphere is great though
The steak was incredible! The service was top notch. Worth the trip.
Service was terrific. Love the old-school vibe. Food was excellent. Oysters and clams on the half were top quality. Sirloins were cooked to specification and Chilean Sea Bass entree also well made. They were accommodating regarding food allergies and had an excellent wine list that was reasonable given the setting. Roughly double retail in some cases even a little less than double. I can live with that. More than double retail really is offensive. It's the old-school Lugeresque steakhouse vibe. If you like that you will love Sparks.
