The food was actually very good. The portion size is actually decent but the price a bit steep. The part that was very annoying and uncalled for is the fact that they will add a credit card fee to your check. Given how much we spent that it wasn't cheap seeing an extra charge for a credit card fee it really made us not ever want to comeback.

We have been to to this place several times before hand. The last time was about 3 years ago. Being from out of town, we were excited to have another great experience. It was not to be had this time. Our waiter was unfriendly, knowledgable, and oft times rude during our service. Way off the game from our past experiences. The expeditor, literally dropped our flatware in front of us rather than placing it in the correct spot with grace. She had an attitute of, "I don't want to be here, and I really don't want you to be here either." I guess there are plenty of high end steak places in the city that will take our money. Sad. Disappointing. Never going back.

Baked clams were wack. Wedge salad is better at Uncle Jacks meathouse. Loaded baked potato just added cheese for $8.00 more than the regular baked potato. The Kobe beef was outstanding, kinda made up for the rest of a forgettable meal. Service was great. Very nice people. I would rather eat at Uncle jacks meathouse in Astoria than the flagship in Manhattan.

My son & I went to the Knicks game and had a wonderful dinner after at Uncle Jack's. I had been there once before and was very good....it did not disappoint on the second time. We had the porterhouse steak for two, two great sides and two wonderful appetizers. Food was great! Food came out very timely. Only complaint was waiting a bit long for our check...I will be back!

My first experience at Uncle Jack’s was fantastic! The food, service and overall vibe of the restaurant was pleasant. The waiter was prompt, the food didn’t take too long. Overall quality of the food was excellent! We were all blown away. I would love to return to this establishment to treat someone else for a special occasion. I believe they would love it as much as I did.

We have been to Uncle Jack's before and felt it was the best meal we've ever had. This time was a different experience and it was disappointing. My filet was very undercooked (I ordered medium and got the lightest side of medium rare). Then instead of recooking, they just put the pieces in a pan to cook more. This left the filet well done, medium well, and in one tiny spot, medium. I couldn't believe they would send it out like that. They did take it back again and recook with a new piece. The cauliflower that I normally love was barely roasted so it didn't have that beautiful dark color and depth of flavor. I know that it was off because the table next to us had an amazing looking plate of it. Ours was bland and stringy. Bread, caesar salad, and dessert (mousse) were delicious. Service was very good. It was extremely loud in there and in order to talk both people had to lean forward to the middle of the table, or shout. Neither of which were pleasant. So overall the visit for me was a 2 star but I upped it to 3 because I know they can do better.

As always the food was superb.
I am a little ashamed to say that my girlfriend likes her steak well done but they always manage to get mine rare and hers out at the same time.
The staff is great.

This will most likely be my last trip here. Took my girlfriend out for Valentine’s Day. We were seated by the front of the restaurant. Our appetizer’s were very good. We ordered the maple bacon and shrimp scampi. We had no issues or complaints with that course at all. However, when our main course came we ran into one very big issue. By this time our red wine was colder then my ice water and i could barely feel my feet. The area of the restaurant was freezing. This became an issue with our main course. 2 bites into the mashed potatoes, asparagus and bone in filet mignon and it was beyond cold. The waiter actually brought it back to be warmed up. But how many times will i have it warmed up? After 2-3 bites it felt
Like it was fresh out the fridge. My girlfriend had a garlic butter sauce that wouldn’t even spread due to the steak being so cold. I had the Baconaise which due to the temperature was inedible, it looked like jelly. The waiter did his best and his service was on point. But they shouldn’t have tables that close to the front of the restaurant. The women seated to my left and right had their jackets on the entire meal. Ruined what should have been a very special occasion.

Uncle Jack’s was the perfect place to have dinner on my first night ever in NYC! They accommodated us even though we were delayed, kept our luggage behind the desk, and were very polite. The wait staff was friendly and timely, and the food was amazing!!

As usual Uncle Jack's did not disappoint! Had reservations and had to call to hopefully change the arrival time. We were in gridlock traffic from LI to NYC! Although we arrived an hour later than our reservation, and it being Valentine's Day, we were graciously accommodated in a lovely booth for our party of four!
Thank you for a delicious meal......

Got to the bar at 5:40 Thursday night for a 6pm seating. Bartender recommended Angel Envy Rye..and it was a winner. Advised the hostess that my dinner partner was running a few behind schedule...no problem. The waiter Tony was polished, affable and knowlegeable. Went with the parmesan oregano topping for the hot house baked bread, grilled octopus, oysters Jackefeller, Porter for 2 (Medium) with creamed spinach and garlic mash...Boom! All winners. Great experience overall and Tony is the man!

Excellent meal and service once again at Uncle Jack's. Not inexpensive but overall worth the price as the food and service are high quality. One of my favorite restaurants to dine at in mid-town for a great meal when I'm there on business.

the service was horrible. ordered bread (that you have to buy) 20 minutes later we are told the kitchen is out of baked bread, so the bring some rolls. it was another 25 minutes to get our appetizers, one of which was luke warm. it then took another 30 minutes to get our mains with luke warm fries and one side we sent back because it was cold.
