    Excellent quality steaks, no argument there, had the signature sirloin and it was great, as you would expect from a place of this caliber. The appetizers and side dishes are certainly good, but nothing exceptional. 5 stars for the meat, and 5 stars for service, which was excellent, 4 stars for the appetizers, I had the baked clams and the crabmeat, which were average, and another 5 stars for the Martini's, they were right on the money

    My husband and I loved the old traditional steakhouse ambiance! The filet was the best filet I think I’ve very tasted and being from Texas, that says a lot. Our server wasn’t real friendly but it didn’t bother us, as I know things are a little different in the north. We will definitely recommend Sparks Steakhouse to others!

    Truly an outstanding experience. I really could not find fault with anything. My wife and I spent my 40th birthday here. We ordered a feast wanting to try everything. We had the Scottish salmon and baked claims for an appetizer. I had the filet for dinner and she had the sliced steak with sautéed onions and peppers. We ordered a side of Roquefort cheese. Every single dish was perfection. I literally can’t find fault. The presentation was nice, our server Hector was as professional as they come. They had an outstanding wine selection. We throughly enjoyed our vintage bottle of Bordeaux. The happy birthday chocolate mousse and ice cream/fruit plate was amazing. Even the pieces of fruit and berries were perfection, it is almost as if the chef goes out and hand picks his fruits. Their port wine list is as impressive as their wine selection. I have been to many steak houses around the world, everything from independents to the big chains. Sparks out does all of them!

    The steak was only ok. There are better choices in the same proximity that are much better for the price. Limited choices. The plus side it is a large restaurant for NY and one of few that are open on Sunday.

    ステーキフロマージュは大変美味しかったです。 クリームスピナッチは、少しあっさりした味わい。 インテリアや店員さんの雰囲気のせいかマストロズやホノルルハイズステーキハウスのようなワクワク感がないのがもったいない。

    This is NOT the Sparks of yesteryear. No porterhouse steak, no ribeye, no shell steak and they call themselves a steak house? The sirloin was tough along with the veal chops I will not be returning

    Good food but wine service needs improvement. I would recommend any knowledgeable wine drinker to open and decant the wine on their own. Bring your own "Ah-so" or Durand.

    The food was fine if not exceptional. The slow service made it difficult to enjoy the meal. We had to repeatedly ask for drinks we had ordered. Our empty plates sat uncleared for way too long after both our appetizers and main course. The waiter was very pleasant but the pace of the meal was way too slow.

    We came early which was nice to avoid the noise and chaos which usually occurs in fine steakhouses. The wait staff was very attentive. Food was excellent but with a limited selection than I am accustomed to at a top end steakhouse.

    Service was very disappointing. Server did not even ask if we wanted a drink. Took more than an hour after we finished to clear the table and bring the check. They were very busy at the time we finished but not a reason to ignore us. Steak was a huge cut and tasty but undercooked. Disappointing particularly when this is an expensive restaurant.

    My family of five had dinner on Christmas Eve. We all split a few appetizers including Caesar salad, oysters, baked clams, and a caprese. Each of us had a steak (filet mignon or sirloin). One of us ordered a medium rare steak and it came 75% rare. 3/5 of us got sick shortly after leaving the restaurant. We eat at steakhouses often and were very shocked and disappointed.

    Dinner at Sparks was amazing. The food was phenomenal. The ambience was great. The waiters were outstanding. The portions are a tiny bit small, but still good. The Caesar dressing for the Caesar salad is the best Caesar dressing I’ve ever tasted. It’s worth the money even though it’s very expensive, it’s definitely worth every penny. I would, and will go again 5 out of 5
