    The steaks (sirloin and filet mignon) were wonderful as were the hash browns and creamed spinach. Spinach salad rocked. Combined with unhurried and friendly service, it's no wonder I've been coming here for over 50 years.

    Probably the worst dining experience I’ve had in several years. I dine out at least 100 plus times a year for work as I travel. We ate on a Sunday night here and I knew it was probably going to be a bad experience when there were a 50-60 empty tables and only a handful of tables occupied. We came here for their live whole lobsters and were told that the only size lobsters they had left were the 5lb lobsters that cost $175. I said really, only 5lb ones not the 3lb ones, and our waiter said sorry, and that the smaller ones were better anyway. The drinks were terrible and my daughter’s cosmopolitan was basically pure vodka and my old fashioned had no flavor and they added soda water. I told the waiter my wife z was bd I were going to share the filet mignon and instead of bringing it out on one plate to share the chef actually cut the filet in two thin filets and cooked it so basically it was cooked all the way through and ruined the filet. We were there for work and asked our waiter to itemize the receipt so we could all submit the receipts and the waiter said he could only divide it in half. I said that was unacceptable and he then asked another waiter who said “oh yes, that’s easy, I can do it for him.” We also felt red pushed the entire time through the meal. This is a dying restaurant and I’m sure it will be closed for good soon!

    Service and food was great but i was kind of annoyed that i got tricked into a $40 desert! Our anniversary and we wanted yo have desert home with our kids but the waiter offered a surprise desert in celebration which was lovely, just didn’t realize he would charge me $38 for it.

    Just what we expected from a classic New York steak house. Great ambiance and atmosphere. Definitely tailored for wine enthusiasts which we are not. Food is good, but not at the full value of the menu prices. Price point is on the high end so be prepared for that. Would recommend to try for NY first timers like us.

    For a classic NYC steak dinner, you can't beat Spark's. I've been there many times, and it has never disappointed. This time, the bar before dinner was particularly good. Super fast, cool bartender, and excellent drinks. At the table, the waiter was on his game, and the help with the wine list was terrific. The serving of appetizers and food was spaced just right. And they split the dessert when two would have been too much. Overall, a great meal. Highly recommended.
