Uncle Jack's Steakhouse - Westside 9th Avenue Ratings and Reviews
Had reservations for dinner before a Ranger playoff game so we needed to eat early in the evening. We ordered drinks and apps which were fine. My companion ordered the fish special which she didn't care for and asked for another meal which was provided without question or comment. The only negative was our waiter who rushed through announcing the specials, wasn't sure of the vegtables with the special and seemed to want to be somewhere else, the other wait staff were considerate and efficient. This was our second visit to Uncle Jack's and would recommend it to our friends.
This was the best restaurant that we eat at all weekend! The service was impeccable and very friendly. We had conversions with all our wait staff and they made us feel at home. Our waiter explained all the wines to us and even taught us what to look for in a good wine. I can't wait to go back again and it was worth every penny!
The sides were by far better than the steaks. Ambiance was nice, service excellent although we were there at 4:30 on a Saturday so it was not busy. We won't go back but I would get a take out for some sides. Typical overpriced steaks, for the money we like Smith & Wollensky and Ruth Chris.
Went to lunch with my daughter and the food and service was outstanding!friendly staff went up and beyond, to make the dining experience worth every penny. So glad we went here rather than that other " steak house" who service is so poor. Kudos to Willy and Suzie for putting the customer first. Well done.
I attended a reception upstairs at Uncle Jacks and it was amazing! The gigantic shrimp, delicious lamb chops and the way the lobster was introduced was spectacular. We decided to dine there as well after the reception, and that is when we were disappointed. I was expecting top notch service based on watching Restaurant Stake-out on Food Network. The server was not knowledgeable about the menu, (seemed new) water glasses were left empty for most of the evening and he generally did not seem engaged.
Don't know what all the hype is about this place. The restaurant was not busy when we were seated, the waiter approached us to take our drink order, which came in a timely fashion. He wanted our order and we asked him to give us a few minutes as this was the first time we were there. He kept walking past our table almost pressuring us to make a decision. He tried to "upsell" us on the specials and appeared disappointed when we decided to split an appetizer and both just ordered the small filet. We were made to feel rushed to complete our meal as every time we put our forks down someone was there to ask if they could take our plate. Felt like they were trying to turn the table over quickly even though the restaurant was only 1/4 full.
After watching Restaurant Steakout, we had high hopes on a dining experience here...and were totally disappointed. Talked down to by our waiter for ordering the light fare, he was unattentive and didn't even offer to refill our drinks. We were practically done with our meals before he came to check on us, and 3 of 4 of us didn't even get our entire order. Apparently what you see on tv isn't how it is in real life :(
I was in New York on business and looking for a place to have dinner by myself. I found Uncle Jack's on Open Table and made a reservation, then when I arrived I asked to sit at the bar. The bartender knew her wine list, and had three very good and uncommon cabernets by the glass for me to choose from, so I had to try all three. The oysters were perfect, the salad was very good. My New York strip steak, a house specialty, was very flavorful but not quite as tender as I expected.
Steak prices were modest by New York standards. The bill added up, mostly because of the wine, but overall it was well worth it.
I will not recommend this restaurant. I and my partner ordered a porterhouse steak (for two). On the site was mentioned that a porterhouse is 48 ounce and the picture they showed is a fine piece of meat of 48 ounce. Totally different from the piece of meat we found on our plate. It was barely enough for two (the quality of the meat was ok). In Europe it's normal to have some time between the courses, so when we were finished with our main course we were still enjoying our wine. We told the waiter we want some time before we decided on our dessert. A minute later he ask us again if we want dessert or coffee. Again, we said that we need some time. Two minutes later the waiter brought us the (enourmous) bill. Within 75 minutes we were outside
They were definitely having an off night.The fact that there were problems(they ran out of bread & slow kitchen)is not the problem, it is the fact that we asked for it 3 times,were told "yes, of course, right away" and then nothing.We received our appetizers in reasonable time, but then it was forever for our entrees.Instead of coming to the table and telling us they were out of bread,they just let us sit there and almost were afraid to come to the table to even refill the water.It was 1 hour between the time we were seated and the time our entrees came out. When management could see I was not happy, they finally came over and fell over themselves to make things right, but the damage was already done.Maybe we will try again.
I was disappointed with this location. The service was not that good and I could only eat half of my NY Strip due to all the fat and grizzle. I would have sent it back, but the restaurant was very busy and did not feel like waiting for another steak, Especuially since my wife had already finished her dinner. The Queens location is much better. We were very disappointed and it was not cheap.
There is nothing special about Uncle Jack's steakhouse. The menu is pretty standard fare for a NYC steakhouse. Service was ok. MY husband and I went for dinner saturday night. between appetizers and sides we decided to share the larger rib eye. Imagine our surprise at a $10 sharing charge that we were never told about. I would understand if the entree was all inclusive but everything is al cart and we were never told about it. Prices are high enough to forgo a share charge
staff is great service is perfect every time . they take time to ask is everything ok and really mean it . wine list is very good and by the glass they have a nice selection . i have been to uncle jacks a number of times and will continue !! ps the steaks are done to perfection !!
after eating in every steak house in the city and the north shore of long island i was going to the car show with a couple of friends and decided to give Willy a shot.the greeting was outstanding. extremely accommodating. the table, perfect. service perfect. there were 3 of us ordering appetizers so we figured we would order different stuff and kind of split them. so we order shrimp cocktail, a wedge and one of us doesn't like apps and only salad so he ordered a house salad. the wedge comes out and its the smallest wedge i ever saw. i mean its iceberg for goodness sake. each of 2 of us that shared it had 3 fork fulls of salad and that was it. we just felt the wedge was tiny. steaks were perfect.
Went expecting great food service
Food was so so
Oysters were not good served without accompaniment except cocktail sauce plus very overpriced.
Tomatoes in capresse salad and asparagus salad were terrible
Porterhouse was good but when asked for bernaise they had none. In all an overpriced meal and wish we went to many other places
This was my first visit to Uncle Jacks's. I was impressed by the Outstanding service that I received. They sat me where I asked to be seated without question. The food came out quickly and my steak was cooked perfectly. I ate everything. The food was Awesome. I will definitely return on my next trip to New York.
