Food was great, but unfortunately a drunk group was seated next to us and decided that everyone within 5 tables should hear every word of their drunk conversation.
They now charge you $3 for bread.
Did not care for the sautéed onions on top.
Steaks were good.
Great steaks! Great service!! You can never go wrong eating at Uncle Jack's Steakhouse!!!
Excellent food and service
I was so excited about going to this restaurant as I am from Ireland but I found it to be very old fashioned and depressing I thought this would have been a lively buzzing restaurant the food was nice and service was good but I think it needs an update on decor
Great service and quality. Returning after 10 years and did not disappoint.
Family decided to go out for dinner and picked Uncle Jacks Steakhouse. The building is amazing with a great looking staircase. The tables are a nice size and the seats are very comfortable. The steak is very good. The lamb was not according to my wife. Also the truffle cauliflower was not good at all. My daughter had filet mignon and that was very good and my son and I shared the Yabba- dabba- do steak and it was very nice. The mac and cheese is very good. The problem I had with this place is that everything is itemized. I mean EVERYTHING! They charged us 3 bucks for break which is fine. I can see that. What I can't see is charging us 3 bucks for steak sauce. I mean for god sake I just bought a 140 dollar steak and you are going to nickel and dime me over steak sauce which in most places is complimentary. Give me a break. If you are looking for good steak this place is very good but be prepared to have every last dollar you have squeeze out of your wallet.
I expected much more than it was. The food is good of course but not exceptional or things I never ate before. Room not very enjoyable, tables all in a row, not great for a date.
Food was amazing!! Bread and dessert is to die for!!! Wanted to go back the next day for both!! Ambiance was great and service was perfect!! Can’t wait to go back!!!
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 !!
We loved the Bacon appetizer and the Waygu ! The three of us shared everything from apps to entrees and dessert , every plate was clean! Delish! Service was awesome!
The steaks were superb. Wines by the glass were very good. The bread and sides were marginal.
Once seated things fell apart. The waiter was bipolar swinging from downright rude to at least giving the occasional small smile. He was curt, preoccupied, and inattentive. My dinner fork contained a large glob of dried up stuck on what appeared to be mashed potato remnants. At least the waiter grimaced when I pointed it out. He got 2 of the four entree orders wrong and so my friend and I watched our husband dine on their steaks while we waited until they were nearly finished, then we received our correct meal. This was a big disappointment for our New Years Eve celebration in New York City.
31th dec, fantastic! Good food, excellent service. A must in NYC
Good steaks and desserts. Fast service cooked to perfection
Food was nice quality, but very high price for the overall.
Excellent service and food, as usual!
We ordered the bone in fillet, but it was not available that night. I am guessing they sold out. Instead we settled on splitting the 12 oz fillet. Unfortunately rather than just cutting it in half, they pre-sliced it. The problem was it has been sitting in the kitchen for a while after they cut it so the steak soaked up a lot of the blood because it was medium rare. Still had good flavor, but in the future I would definitely request if they are going split it for us , do not slice it. I prefer bigger bites rather than thin slices, and it took away from the overall taste of a great steak. The baked clams were also good, as was the Wedge Salad. The bread was underwhelming and would have been much better had it been warm. I always love to get warm bread at a steak house, so the cold roll was a little disappointing . The baked Potato was also very good, although next time I would get it loaded with fixings on the side. The unsalted butter just did not add much to a beautifully cooked potato with a nicely salted skin. Overall the staff was excellent, and we will definitely come back, but completely disagree with pre-slicing a beautiful fillet like that. Really took away from what should have been a spectacular steak.
We have been to this restaurant everytime we go to NYC, usually a special occasion. This time our waiter was a real turn off. Once our order was put in he completely stopped checking on us. When he did stop he was very flirtatious with my son. We had a fixed menu for Christmas day. I had the NY strip and it was just O.K. My husband and I usually share the porterhouse but it was not an option on this day. Not sure we will go back. Beautiful atmosphere during the holidays.
Have eaten at Uncle Jack’s many times. Food and service has always been first class.
We dined on Christmas Day which had a prixe fix menu. However Prime ribs of beef which had been on the Christmas menu originally was replaced with strip steak the day of. Not right! . We were very disappointed. The Caesar salad and Christmas salad barely had dressing. I would say an awful salad. Service was average. The servers need some retraining. The lobster bisque and Virginia ham was very good. The cheesecake was also good. The waiter never offered us coffee so we didn't have. You have to ask for more rolls as they only serve you one. Christmas decor was beautiful!
My husband and I enjoyed the set menu Christmas dinner at Uncle Jacks. Both soup options were very tasty. My husband had the lobster bisque which was delicious. The steaks were perfectly cooked and generous portions. They came with a creamy spinach accompaniment which I loved. The NY cheesecake was nice also. The salad course let the meal down a little. My Christmas salad was tasty but very small. The Cesar salad was a disappointing small pile of iceberg lettuce with a little bit of dressing and a small crispy bread balanced on top.
The restaurant had a pleasant atmosphere and was nicely decorated for Christmas. The service was fine and friendly. It wasn’t cheap but I’d say reasonable for Christmas Day in NY.
Overall a very enjoyable meal.
Dinner at Uncle Jack's Midtown has become our Christmas Eve tradition. Wonderful food, wonderful environment, excellent and attentive service. We highly recommend it!
one of my favorite steakhouse in the city... best steak in town. i love this place, the wine list and whiskey selection great by far. food was delicious, service was very good.
Waiter extremely inattentive seated at 7 received appetizers in normal time by 8:40 our main course still wasn’t served waiter came over 2 Times saying it will be our
In 5 min x 2 no aplogetic offered one of a drink. Said he could bring a soda fo the two not drinking . The busboy for lack of better description did better service recovery than the head waiter. He offered us cappuccino conversed with us and apologized sincerely
