                                  As always our experience was amazing. Sad to hear this location is closing. I sincerely hope the owners will move Manager Scott to one of the other locations. Good food is not hard to find in the city, great service isn’t always as easy to come by and Scott and the team gave great service! I hope to see the team in a new location or on 9th.

                                  Lukewarm all around from the greeting, to the table, to the service, to the food. Lackluster and not as great as it once was. Needs some polishing to get its shine back.. Sorry, we used to love this spot.

                                  Quality of the steak doesn’t compare to top steakhouses in NYC, yet the price was the same. Wouldn’t recommend. Service was very good and ambiance is fine if you like old and tired.

                                  We've been there once before and it was great. This time... just meh. They had to make four steaks to get it right. I ordered a 12 oz. NY Strip--my typical go-to steak. Done medium. Came out rare. And it was 40% fat. So they make me a new one. Comes out... it looks a little larger but I cut into it... rare again. But oops! That wasn't my steak! That was for another table! Then my steak comes out immediately afterwards. Much less fatty. Still a little under-cooked but I ate it. So they wasted my first steak. (1). Gave me someone else's which I cut into so they couldn't serve (2). Gave me my correct steak (3). Gave the other table their correct steak (4). And after all that they didn't even say let us comp you dessert for your son's birthday (which was part of the reservation). Nothing. So even though we wouldn't necessarily be going back anyway, we're definitely not going back now.

                                  Started off our evening with an incredible Manhatten and a vodka martini. Paul is a Bartender that has skills with cocktails from years of experience. You can actually have a conversation at this bar and Paul enhances your time with knowledge and humor. The steaks and sides are topnotch and don't think that a steakhouse can't make an incredible fish dish. Their Flounder with brown butter and macademia nuts is outstanding. Service is first rate--attentive but relaxing. Scott who takes care of the front of the house will make sure your experience is a memorable one. Go enjoy this true NYC delight.

                                  Other more advertised steak houses were booked for a Saturday in mid town manhattan. We found Uncle Jack's available and best within walking from our hotel. This place should have been booked solid??!! No other place would have topped our dinner.

                                  Vegetable salad was served with vegetables that I didn’t like which weren’t listed on the menu, we had to ask for bread while tables around us received it, my husband asked for wine with dinner but waiter never came back - not the usual service

                                  Poor service, steak was good but everything else we had was not. Salad, mac and cheese and loaded potato were horrible. Wait staff not attentive. We were laughed at when we told them it was hot. It was July with no ac on and the doors open. It is a tourist trap, go elsewhere!

                                  We specifically came up to the midtown Uncle Jack’s because their website advertised a brunch with bottomless mimosas and we were meeting friends. We went very much out of our way to do this but when we got there the menu was a regular lunch menu and there was no brunch offered. Waiter said that they had recently stopped doing brunch. If a restaurant has a website and they make changes to their offerings, the website must be updated. It was frustrating. Food was good but overall we were very disappointed with the experience because we felt mislead.

                                  It was our 31st wedding anniversary, we decided to stay overnight in the city and have a steak dinner. Uncle Jack’s was the perfect choice for dinner. Everything was great, thanks again for the champagne and dessert. Definitely coming back.

                                  First time the steak for 2 was the best I even had. The last 2 times I've eaten there the steak has been below par. The sides we're good, but the chef didn't cook the steak right, tasted like it was to close to the gas or something, but it had a strange taste from how they cooked it. I will be patronizing P. Luger's from now on.

                                  Great food and service. This was actually better than our other fine dining experience at a location owned by a very famous chef. A little t of food, well plated.

                                  Very disappointing visit. Saturday night usually a restaurant has its A game ,,,not this time! For an empty restaurant we got terrible service and the food was not good.

                                  We came to nyc for vacation and had heard from a friend how wonderful the food was. The shrimp cocktail was amazing. The bread was the best I have had. I had the filet mignon and it was perfectly cooked. We received the dessert sampler and everything was amazing. The best part of the dining was the service. As soon as we walked in we were treated like the most important people in nyc. We had a great dinner and the wait staff made it even better.
