Our bartender, Lana, was professional and made a fantastic martini! Great conversation, too. Dinner was delicious! We had the 8oz Filet, with mushroom caps, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach for sides. Steak was cooked perfectly and the sides were big enough to share. We will definitely visit again when we make it back to NYC.

There is no absolute in rating a restaurant. It is always relative and depend on the occasion, environment, mood and purpose for the visit, and what the reviewer is comparing his/her experience with in their minds.

It was a rainy Tuesday.

For the whole evening, there were only 3 tables of customers so the place was quiet Every time I go to these upscale Steakhouse they was always buzzing, and the environment moves you. Not this time. So we have the exclusive attention of the floor staff, the kitchen and folks from the other table.

We started with a Martini, it was well mixed, and temperature was just right. The porterhouse steak was cooked to specification. However I had hoped it was fattier. I share the blame for not ordering a ribeye. Mechanically Staghorn executed well. The place is big and spacious. So when it is empty is it seems hollow.
I would suggest they put some short partitions in the dining room to physically carve out areas to make it look busier.

Over all I think it lived up to its intent and price tag. I gave it a 4 star rating because I was hoping for a upscale steakhouse experience but I didn't get it. I can imagine it could earn a 5-star rating from me when the place is full.

We originally went to Staghorn because of its proximity to Madison Square Garden. Now we go there on a regular basis whenever in Manhattan. From the moment you walk in you are greeted warmly, feel appreciated by the staff, and are served quickly. Steaks are top steak house quality with comparative prices. Great food, great people and an excellent choice in a large market area.

Loved this restaurant. The service, food and hospitality were fabulous. We had the Porter house for 2 which was cooked to perfection and definitely our best steak of our week holiday. Friendly servers and not too noisy, just some gentle 80s music playing in the background which was good for us Brits!
If I have any small issue it was that the menu was overpriced. There needs to be a few more reasonably priced dishes on the menu. The wine list was confusing and the prices ranged from $4,ooo to $60. We chose a $60 bottle of red and it was good. But I think the wine menu needs an overhaul to make it less confusing.
Maybe a house red and white at the front of the wine list.... Then if customers want to delve deeper into the wine list they can go for the pricier options.
We would definitely recommend Staghorn, but I think it needs a Gordon Ramsay style overhaul to make the menu and wine list more appealing to the regular customer.
It was quiet on a Saturday night which surprised us as it’s very good, maybe a few tweeks will improve its popularity. We liked the less busy and quiet ambience. So don’t want it to change too much!
Staff were very friendly. A hidden gem in Midtown

Showed up for a 9:30 PM reservation. They hand out menus and say to "order quickly, we close at 10:00."WHY WOULD YOU BOOK A RESERVATION AT 9:30 THEN???

Staghorn is spacious by NYC standards. The waitstaff was uneven in their attention to our table. Our drink order was incorrect and our waiter attempted to correct the situation by bringing 3 small olives on a wooden stick. Our steaks were tender and served as ordered however there was very little flavor. It was an unnecessarily rushed experience which could be greatly improved with a different management approach.

Very nice small steakhouse near Penn Station. The owner was very inviting and made several appearances around the restaurant, including making some great wine recommendations. The bartender is a Class A martini maker!!!!!

On a positive note, the Maitre De & waiters were very professional, attentive & responsive. The tables were spread out & we enjoyed the extra space not typical of most NYC restaurants. Beyond that, my steak was undercooked & overpriced. My wife’s shrimp entree was not edible. Staghorn Steakhouse was worth a try but we won’t return.

We were very impressed with the great food and service at Staghorn! The steaks were delicious, lamb chops melted in your mouth! The grilled calamari was outstanding and the fresh mozzarella was the best we ever had! Our waiter was great, very attentive and friendly and knowledgeable about everything that was on the menu. We will definitely be back!

Service is great, this is an up and coming area of lower midtown, nice atmosphere and the food quality is top shelf. Haven’t had a Manhattan in along time, the BT makes a great Manhattan - I had two. Can’t go wrong with this place that continues to go “under the radar” of great places to dine in the area.

If you’re looking for excellent steakhouse food - this place doesn’t disappoint. It is quieter than the usual suspects on the steakhouse circuit, so if you want to have a working lunch or dinner where you can actually hear yourself. If you want to have phenomenal food without yelling to be heard, this is the place. It’s a quiet gem, and I recommend it to everyone. The staff is excellent, and there’s never a no for whatever request you make. Great wine selection as well.

I've enjoyed The Staghorn Steakhouse numerous times over the years. Great place for a business lunch as the noise level is very low. Service is impeccable and very professional. The food is exceptional. List of "bar food - appetizers" are plentiful. The Steak on Toast is terrific as an appetizer and don't miss the onion rings! Steaks are perfectly grilled and served the way you ordered. I've stopped in for a Happy Hour drink and the place is hopping. I've been to other "big name, big box, open since 1895" type steakhouses, but the cuisine, atmosphere/ambiance is totally different.. The Staghorn has more a private club feel. I've noticed that Management and servers greet many guests by name, definitely a good sign. Very friendly place. I have never been disappointed, be it for a business lunch, quick drink or dinner. BTW... I have never been rushed at The Staghorn...even when a business lunch lasted almost 3 hours or just lingering over the last glass of wine! Try that in other steak houses.

I’m sad to say the food was a major disappointment. The filet was chewy and so was the sea bass. It was terrible. There were only 3 other people there and now I know why. The waiter couldn’t have been nicer but that’s likely because they are desperate for customers.
