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.

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.
