Best Steak in NYC in my opinion. I’ve do visit other steak houses and also say the same thing when I’m back at Sparks “why bother going anywhere else?”.

It was one of many visits at Sparks - but this one was probably the last one. Terrible meat, bad service from the welcome to the end ...
Usually, I am going to Sparks on every business trip to NYC and I have recommended the place to many people, but this is history now.

They really knew how to make a birthday dessert special. All the food and service was amazing. I’ve been before, and will continue to make a point to visit every time I’m in NYC.

Outstanding service. My wife and I ordered two appetizers that we told them we would be sharing. Without asking, they split each order onto separate dishes and served one then the other. Very nice.

Our main courses were large in size and cooked perfectly according to our orders. Staff was attentive to our table and the replacement of the cloth table cloth before dessert was a nice touch.

We enjoyed the dinner and will return the next time we visit NYC.

Sparks is one of the quintessential NY Steak houses, always great to visit and take business guests. Great service, atmosphere, and food. No pricier than any of the other 4 star and above locations in NY.

Best steakhouse in the universe with consistently great dishes and service. Anew York institution since the sixties, long may it live!!

We asked for a quiet table (as this was in an important business meeting) and were seated in an exceptionally noisy room, right next to the kitchen. I also thought the steaks, while tasty, were terribly undercooked and the service was inattentive. Overall, I found that the restaurant's reputation exceeds what it actually delivers.

Great Meal. I'm a sucker for a place trapped in time, and this spot is close to the top of the list. Wooden serving carts, carpet, ornate wooden armoires, paintings on the walls, this spot has it all. Thick steaks, delicious sides, big wine list. If you want a taste of old new York, you cannot go wrong with Sparks.

I wanted to go to a classic NYC steakhouse and Sparks did not disappoint. The steaks were cooked perfectly medium-rare, with a slight char on the outside. We had the Steak Fromage and the Prime Sirloin, both were fantastic and in huge portions. I recommend ordering the Sauteed Onions to have with the steaks, the onions taste like French onion soup and are a perfect compliment to the meat.

Meat flavorless. Sides bland cream spinach was puréed. Mashed potatoes were small and again over puréed.
Should not be ranked as one of best in city. Others are much better

Our lunch experience was below average. Service is bad and steaks were burned. Needs some will to serve and to leave a good impresion to the client. There were only 4-5 tables with clients and I believe they could have done a much better job. Needs to have a better attitude towards quality service.
