This is a different take than most high-end steakhouses in the area. The menu is simple and you do not get the variety of cuts as in other steakhouses. You will find a Sirloin and a Mignon... that is about it. Half the menu is seafood so a good place for those who do not want meat. My sirloin was delicious and cooked as ordered in the center. Asparagus as the side was good. Crab meat starter was tasty but the presentation was not the best.
Went with my family for a post graduation dinner, service was exceptional like the steaks we ate. Hands down best steak in NYC.
Quiet because it was early. Food was excellent;service was ok but not great.
My son and I both had the sirloin and is was cooked to perfection. Absolutely delicious. We had a Caesar salad with a side dish of cream spinach and asparagus. Both were very good. Great selections on the wine list. We had a bottle of Cab which paired excellent with our meal. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Sparks is the best steakhouse in town in my opinion.
Was there fro my birthday great experience. Food and service were very good.
Perfect food great service.
Absolutely wonderful, as always.
Great, friendly fast service. There was a 200 person party in the other room but we wouldn't have known it from the attentiveness we received. It was fun to be in a room with so much interesting history.
Spent the weekend in the city for Mother’s Day and Sparks has always been on the list to go to. It was fabulous! Service was on point, food was amazing. We will defiantly be back the next time we’re in the city.
I used to come here every year with my family and my experience on May 11th was a far cry from the bar that Sparks had set prior. The service was rushed, and the entire wait staff seemed to be very angry and annoyed. One waiter even cursed at another waiter while passing our table. Waiters were getting into arguments with the maitre d. The tension was quite palpable and made us actually uncomfortable. Our entrees came out prior to our appetizers and were sent back. I asked for Happy Birthday Ricardo to be written on my boyfriend's dessert when u made the reservation and put this in writing. Dessert came with nothing and I had to ask the waiter to put a candle because of the special birthday we were celebrating. He came back with the candle and no one sang, when the staff sang for other tables that night. To top the night off there were very inebriated young girls in the ladies room who were screaming and carrying on. We witnessed a waiter escorting them outside and then he and the bartender got into words. Overall, I was quite disappointed and assume Sparks is now resting on their laurels with a good reputation that is obviously out of date. I was regretful that I chose this restaurant to celebrate and important birthday and the restuarant (first time for my boyfriend) made a terrible impression and left me in an awkward and embarrassing predicament.
It was a good experience. We ordered the snapper and trout. Food was hot and very tasty. Huge whine selection for the avid wine drinker. I definitely recommend.
First time at Sparks and can’t wait to visit on our next city trip! I’m not a close to rare side steak guy but I’d say it was more med rare and it was probably one of the best steaks I’ve ever had! Worth every penny!
While the sirloin steak and wine list were fantastic. I would say the atmosphere isn’t quite as “classic nyc steakhouse feeling” compared to demonicos or keenes. And at the same price point nothing stood out to me other than the mafia associations with this place. I’d you want a sexy atmosphere maybe go to striphouse. But for the handsdown best piece of meat in NY get the porter house at Peter Lugers.
Awesome service, atmosphere and the New York strip melted in my mouth.
Great sirloin and filet. Also enjoyable creamed spinach. Service is nothing special, but that’s not the point. Recommend it.
A great treat. This is a high end, white linen service with high quality products. Steak, tomatoes, fish are cooked to perfection.
Loved everything about this place, food and wine was superb, it had character and the waiting staff were attentive and fun
Would definitely recommend a trip here if you are visiting NYC ⭐️⭐️
We had a great time - we will go back - great food and service - but the parking across the restaurant ripped us off. We spent over $800 dollars had our parking due was $45 but Sparks discount should be $15 but the garage did not honor sparks validation. Very poor ending...
Excellent steakhouse in a fabulous NYC location. Filet was big enough to split between two of us (women) and was cooked perfectly!
The food was excellent, however, we found the service to be a little slow. The waiters seemed tired and unenthusiastic and it took a lot of effort to get them to come to our table.
Caprese (Tomato & Mozzarella) is really good. Don’t miss it.
In the restaurant I feel the good old days and the New York sirloin stake was just delicious as expected.
Waited 30 minutes for our table with a reservation. Food & service was outstanding.
It has become a tradition, every time I am in town for business meetings, Sparks is required dinner stop.
This time we stopped in with several guest who insisted they knew the best steakhouse in New York, yet had never experienced Sparks first hand
The maître d’, the staff, the food ... converted them to Sparks champions as well!
As always thank you for having us, we will see you soon!
What a satisfying experience. Start to finish, the food and service could not have been any better.
Noisy. Seated at table too large for 6. If you’re a woman don’t expect the hosts to seat you or even address you. Great quality of food. Energetic service. High prices.
Amazing! They brought cake out for my bfs birthday - I didn’t even ask for it I just put that it was a birthday on my open table reservation. I was very pleasantly surprised!!
Classic New York. From the service to the decor to of course the food, Sparks exemplifies what a New York City steakhouse is. The meat here is seasoned well and has the perfect char - in fact I think it's the best char on any cut in NY.
Amazing place. Food and service was outstanding
Wonderful old school steak house. The wine list was excellent, the steaks were great and the service was fantastic.
Great meal, but the booze is a little pricey. Wish they had more options.
The appetizers and sides were amazing- the two filets we ordered were terrible. Not cooked even remotely close to how we ordered them and a lot of fat for the filet cut. Wouldn’t go back.
It was OK. I know people rave about it but I felt the meat was good, selection adequate, presentation humdrum.
Another amazing evening spent at Sparks - food excellent and service to match - a must if you are in New York.
I love Sparks. Been going there for years. Love the prime sirloin but it was just a little tough tonight, but the flavor was outstanding & so was the service.
Very slow service. Filet was dry, but had a good flavor. We had heard good things, but thought the overall experience was very average. I would not put this on my list of places to come back to next time I am in New York.
Good old school ambiance
Sparks doesn’t disappoint. Very good service, excellent food in a famous setting.
Had a great evening. Our server was so fun. We had wonderful salads and steaks. Then berries for dessert. It was all so good and prepared exactly how we ordered them!
Quintessential NY steakhouse and famous crime scene. Enjoy it while you still can.
First we ordered drinks. Then We ordered a Caesar salad which we shared. Next, we ordered 2 orders of lamb chops which the 3 of us shared and an order of potatoes. Everything was excellent along with the service. Everything was superb including the service. The waitstaff couldn’t have been more attentive. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
