Food was great but the service was a little slow for NYC. But very nice place with a classic Steakhouse feel. I paid $3 for BBQ sauce that was supposed to be Jack Steak sauce was the only negative.
I ordered the bone in filet. It was wat to fatty. Way to pricey overall.
I loved it here there was no downside to my visit i will
Uncle Jack's Sunday Brunch was fantastic! I was both frightened yet eager to see how old my high school friends had gotten. I wanted to host this vanity threatening event at an appropriate
place representative of the middle aged station of our lives. Uncle Jack's came through
for us and I am grateful. I'm not saying that children err, younger people would not
appreciate it. But, it was great for us!
The midtown location was readily accessible, as was the staff. They were ready
to accommodate our changing party size. The tuxedoed servers were amicable
and efficient. They were ready to explain the menu, make recommendations,
and refill drinks. Fortunately, they did not tire.
As to Brunch, order what we called the "Melody Special." My buddy's girlfriend
had reviewed the brunch menu online the night before and suggested
that we try the Eggs Benedict over a crab cake on an English Muffin with hollandaise
sauce. It was money, Melody! Yeah, people still talk like that.
Thank you, Uncle Jack's, We'll be back.
I have previously been to the restaurant a few years back on my last visit to NYC and couldn’t wait to come back, however, it didn’t meet my expectations as previous. I brought my girlfriend along as I had explained that the steak here was amazing and we were both excited. I asked for my steak medium rare, So when the food came it was a shock that ‘The best Steakhouse in NYC’ couldn’t cook a steak to nothing that I asked for. The steak presented to me was more well done with no pink in the middle. Usually I would be polite and just eat the food put in front of me, but due to the very high price ($50 for Fillet Mignon 12oz), I had to send it back! Then I waited for approximately 5-10 minutes not knowing what was going on because the waiters just were no where to be seen!! Then eventually, the waiter appeared with a fresh steak and ‘complimentary brocolli’ due to the wait. I cut into the 2nd steak as the waiter watched over, then again the steak was not cooked to how I asked, however this time, being too hungry I just decided to smile and eat my over cooked steak. (If a steakhouse can’t cook a steak to how you ask, then somethings wrong). I left some of the steak because it far too overdone! After all this, to put the cherry on top, they had the cheek to push us towards a 18%-20% tip!!! NYC waiters rely upon tips, I get that, But that doesn’t mean they deserve one if the service is awful. The overall bill came to nearly $200!!! which was eye watering after the experience.
Service was great, but steak was overcooked. Requested medium rare and steak came completely charred on outside, grey almost all the way to center. As if steak was frozen since very middle was still a little red, but rest was beyond well done. Not the type to send food back, ever. Sides were fine and service helped make up for a lousy steak.
Very nice dinner great service great steaks
My friends and I had a delicious meal at Uncle Jack's. We started off with a yummy bread with honey butter. Two of us had steaks and another the tuna. The food was perfect.
I highly recommend Uncle Jack's
outstanding steaks & service. Staff was very attentive just wish the double porterhouse was a little bigger
Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse never dissappoints. For the best cocktails, steaks and seafood, you must visit and bring your special someone to an evening at Uncle Jack’s Steakhouse. The delicious cuisine and warm and friendly staff can’t be duplicated. It’s a NYC must see.
We loved this restaurant! Great service. A little pricey but great!! Highly recommend!
So expensive and de steak not so good. The ambient is kind old.
Got into NY and wanted to go to a casual steakhouse and this one was near our hotel. It was a slow night, so we got seated quickly and the waitress took our drink order right away. For our meal order, there was a delay in her getting back to us, which became a theme for the night. I had the lamb and my wife a steak, we shared some steamed vegetables, as well. The food was great, not as good as some of the other steakhouses we’ve been to; but I’d put it in my top 10. Only issue was with the waitress, seemed to spend more time with her other tables and forgot about us. Like I said it was slow, only 6 tables with people. It got to the point we’re the guy busing our dishes took our second drink order and our desert order. She did show up at the end of the meal to give us the check and get the tip though, sure hope it was shared with the guy who spent most of the evening serving our table. My wife chalked it up to how we dressed, I did not want to change for dinner, so I was a bit Mose casual, in my jeans an flannel shirt, then the others in our section..
A little disappointed at the overall experience. It was my girlfriend's birthday which I indicated on the reservation yet they celebrated everyone elses and I had to tell them again about hers. Also, they seated us in between two other couples in spite of plenty of other more private tables. Just felt rushed the whole way thru. Her petite filet steak was very delicious, mine was mediocre and overcooked. Will not be returning to this location. The service and quality just didn't justify the cost.
I have been going to Uncle Jack's after a matinee for years. It never fails to meet expectations of outstanding food - excellent service - good variety on the menu - superb wine list with knowledgeable servers and bartenders to offer suggestions if you wish. NEVER DISAPPOINTS !!
