T-BAR Steak & Lounge (Upper East Side)
Chef Ben Zwicker's menu consists of raw bar that includes tartares; steak
bar that includes prime cuts and as well as tuna and salmon steaks;
appetizers are divided in classic and market driven; sauces are global and
diverse; entrees, too, present a roster of classics and new world items; and
a long, long list of sides complements every dish on the menu. T-Bar &
Lounge speaks to many tastes, from cocktail & wine lovers, to grazers and
full on steak aficionados.
This is my third time at T-Bar in the past few weeks, although I've dined there so many times. I love the restaurant's ambiance and their delicious food. The wines are great as well as the desserts.
But the service has been poor every time. Many friends have had the same experience, sadly. If it weren't for the glorious food, I probably wouldn't return.
enjoy the excellent service and reliably good food and drinks
as well as comfy neighborhood ambiance
If you want better ambiance, sit in the back. We were in the front with all the babies. UGH
Good food but better dinner menu than for lunch. A bit overpriced for salads.
Good cornmeal pancakes and bacon. Cold latkes. Bus staff kept clearing things we weren't done with.
Service was very disappointing!
We got there at 5 and it was lovely. The service was good as well as our food. They have THE best guacamole!
However, by 5:45, the noise level: deafening:(
Service and food was excellent n
Absolutely excellent food whether it’s lunch, brunch or dinner. A restaurant I will frequent often.
Excellent steaks and salads in very amiable and vibrant ambiance. Superb, professional service.
I had a cesar salad. It was just some lettuce with 3 pieces of cheese. No croutons = 17$. I won’t come back
T Bar is the industry standard in classic upscale New York dining.... the Irish salmon is amazing!
Favorite Restaurant UES
I have been to Tbar quite a few times. Good is always consistently good, service good. Always busy. Nice decor & friendly staff. Sometimes a little noisy. Worth the value & nice wine selections.
Never a disappointment at T Bar.
Christmas dinner. Perfect ambiance, food, and service. Tony is the real deal, he runs a fabulous restaurant. No detail overlooked.
We truly appreciated the excellent service & enjoyed our delicious dinners. This restaurant is always consistent & we look forward to our next visit.
Tbar is a neighborhood gem. The service , and food are consistently great. Tony who is part owner manager. Makes everyone feel welcome.
Great local spot. Wonderful service and great food.
Came for lunch with a friend, we were seated and served promptly and the food was delicious! I LOVE the tuna tartar here. Don’t skip the salty crust focaccia.
Lovely dinner and service. Great neighbor spot for a special evening as well as a great place to dine with friends and family.
Such great food and service for a pre Christmas dinner with family
Had a great meal and great service!!
It was a wonderful experience. Service was great food delicious and the cocktails were excellent. But the best was the banana parfait dessert. Everything was phenomenal
Always great scene and food is consistent. However they are overdue for a menu change of interesting choices that other steakhouses follow.
The living room of the UES, Tbar does not disappoint.
First time I will write a bad review
I made res and req certain area
Got there and they said yes and then seated us in the middle of main room where noise was intolerable - I have ALWAYS written that they honor reservations - and the attitude this time - was “ oh yes - but nothing is available” - NOT EVEN LET ME SEE HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE
I ordered turkey burger -menu said with spinach and goat cheese.
Never said stuffed with spinach and goat cheese.
When I complained to waiter - he showed me menu and told me it said it- I pointed out it did not say stuffed - he said okay and walked away. I did not eat it as I hate goat cheese. No apologies - no attempt to take off check or order me one without stuffing.
Asked for more olive bread when we first sat down. Never came
Others in our party ordered brisket - told wAiter potToes cold - again he did nothing to resolve this
First time of many many times - GREATLY DISAPPOINTED
ordered the 40oz steak for the three of us, it was cooked perfectly and it was delicious! I wish they had mashed potatoes for lunch! Great desserts, just a great place!
T-Bar has become our regular Friday night dining spot. Service, food and vibe is excellent!
The food and service were terrific but the noise level at dinner made it difficult to carry on a conversation.
Always great steaks, salads and service. Wish lower priced wine options.
The house salad was delicious and the steak was perfect
we loved the French fries and brussel sprouts
Overall very good; great service and food always good
The food, service and ambience was just as good as always. TBar does not disappoint and always strives for pleasing the customer as best they can.
We had a business dinner for a group of 6 and this was perfect. The food was delicious, service was prompt and the drinks were strong. Definitely will be back!
Nice variety in menu. Salads etc.Good for “ladies who lunch.” In fact many men there at lunch as well. A little noisy, but could be
Asked to sit downstairs. Sat us at a table closest to bathroom on balcony. Not a cozy table as we are used to. We have been coming to TBar for years. We should be on some type of VIP list as in other restaurants we frequent. And, we brought guests who we thought would love it as we do, they live be in the neighborhood. FYI.
Very nice Sunday brunch is served at a reasonable price. I would absolutely recommend. Not often does one see such a well priced brunch in New York City!
Great local place. Food is always consistent
Thank you for the fine service to celebrate our 'kids' 1st anniversary.
All 3 generations loved it.
