Lamb chop lollipops were great as an appetizer. 20oz bone in filet had too much griddle in it. The wife’s filet mignon was cold. Cool ambience but won’t go back.

The steak was delicious and juicy as expected. The tuna tartare was also a great starter for the dinner we had. The service was very polite and all our needs were met quickly. Overall, a very good dinner.

8 in party 7 ordered beef, 6 of thought the following. We believe what they offer on the menu is not the product the serve. They state it is prime beef, it is not. They offered a bone in tenderloin it was not even a tenderloin let alone a prime beef! We informed the staff who in a very automated way said they would get the manager (the impression was they get complaints a lot!) at this point what can they do? They offer replace the steaks with another cut of beef... net/net avoid this place there are plenty of other $$$$ steakhouse in Manhattan

It was my son's birthday. He had filet mignon and loved it. My husband lived the strip steak. Baked potato could have been softer. Asparagus were really delicious but Brussels sprouts not so much. The pecan pie was outstanding. I had the organic chicken which was very good.

The only thing I don’t like at the majority of restaurants is that they look at you as if you are crazy or you are a strange thing when you walk alone. I would think this is common for most big city restaurants. They should have a protocol for lonely guests for them if they are walking alone.

Our food was placed on the table more than 35min after the salads. My daughters filet mignon was good but my NY Stip was one of the worst cuts of meat I had ever been served. The Brussel Sprouts were not prepared as requested and had to be redone. Overall for the price the meal was poor.

I have eaten at Uncle Jacks dozens of time and all of my reviews have been very good to excellent. Unfortunately this review will not be like that. In all the years visiting all the locations this is the worst experience I have had at Uncle Jacks. The service was horrible and the food, while good was not up to their usual standards.

It was a party of four and we were there for 2 hours and saw our waiter twice. Once to take the order and once to deliver the check. As an example all four of us ordered the exact same salad and two of us got ours. We had to flag someone down and ask (after almost 10min) where the others salads were. After another 5min they arrived from some other waiter. Our waiter never apologized or offered an explanation. The was repeated throughout the dinner (1 side was missing and took 5min to track down and was delivered lukewarm). Desert was mess, two orders screwed up and had to repeatedly flag someone down to get the check.

All of my other reviews have always been positive so this isn't a case of the only review I post is negative but I felt very disappointed, compounded by the fact the other couple we were with were they because we recommended it. I feel they didn't not get a great experience and they expressed their disappointment as we had told them of our many fine meals there.

The steak is what you would expect at a New York city steakhouse. The atmosphere reminds me of what an old fashion saloon should look like and makes dinner fun. The wait staff is very attentive, we were a party of eight and nobody felt that were waiting for anything.

Our service was great, very thoughtful staff. The food is pricey and very well prepared. It was our 50th anniversary and the food, ambiance, service were great. I had the marinated swordfish which was just OK, a tad dry but the marinade covered that. My hisbands steak was perfectly cooked nd very tender and flavorful.

The service was very good and out waiter personable. We split a porterhouse and it was excellent along with the creamed spinach. But the "disco fries" were just ok.
I wanted a crabmeat cocktail which I had gotten there and the Queens location many times but they didn't have it available.
They also didn't have my wine selection which the waiter told us they were out of for a week. He did recommend a similarly priced replacement and it was excellent.
Overall an excellent meal but I guess I have to expect perfection. As steakhouses go they are even more expensive than most.

Strike 2! Been to Uncle Jack's dozens of times. Last 2 visits have been a total miss! Now I have to ask for bread?

An hour and fifteen minutes in and all we had was our now undersized appetizers?? The competition for NY steak houses is fierce, I think after 15 years, Uncle Jack's and I are ready to part ways...

We had a great time!! Food was wonderful. The blue cheese topping was absolutely not worth the $15.00 they charged for it as it was a teeny portion.

Would definitely return.

Great cocktails too.

Worst food I have had at Uncle Jack's and when relayed my displeasure to the wait staff they indicated that "sometimes you get a bad cut of meat". Did not offer to replace poor cut but offered a complimentary dessert and coffee. Waiter ignored us mostly and indicated that we were using a groupon which I had no idea that it was an option even.

Used a groupon as many of the others eating there that night. We packed our meatball appetizer to go as there was also a salad, entree, 3 sides, and a trio dessert to follow.
My chopped vegetable salad was good.
My steak arrived cold as did the baked potato . I asked them for a new steak, as I did not want it over cooked while heating. They returned with the same steak with my bite missing ( I hope it was my bite😩. The quality was sub par; grizzle throughout and I tried to cut it away. It was also now overlooked.
The manager who was very nice, asked if I wanted another steak. I truly didn't as my husband had already eaten the cold potato, luke warm steak, luke walmart spinach, his tasty but also luke warm steak and incredibly decadent and delicious mac and cheese. She brought us a steak, took a few bites and I had it wrapped to go. The desserts were off the chart delicious.
Was not an enjoyable meal. as the customer service just did not make things right even though she stood and spoke with us for a while. We had also ordered cocktails and wine, none of which were comped . It would have been nice if an additional glass of wine was offered while I waited for the steak the third time.
Our server disappeared after the steak was returned and no one even offered us a water refill. With so many great steak houses in NY, we won't be back with or without a groupon.
