West Side Steakhouse
Subway: A,C,E Port Authority 42nd
Wonderful meal. Steaks were delicious. Warmly greeted and server was excellent.
Loved it as always and the owner is great! Bartender friendly and makes good drinks
We were a family of five and we all loved the place and the steaks! Good meat, perfectly grilled and spiced. Thank you for a good evening!
Entertainment with out of town pals was excellent.
When I got up to take my daughter to the restroom, the bus boy took my food before I was done. Other than that, the food was great.
Noisy - but it’s NYC. Good food good service. Not a bad place overall!
Great menu with food from burgers to dry aged steak. Nice setting with just the right amount of chatter and environment to enjoy. Service is GREAT and very special. Food prepared to our exact request. Location is just far enough from theater distract to be less packed but not too far to be a problem. I will dine here again and recommend to all
The place was nice a bit small. The food was delicious. I would recommend the place.
Everything was amazing. Very attentive service. The food was awesome!
It was a good meal closer to the theater district
Always good service and good food. Been there several times and never disappointed
Wade was our waiter and we had the best experience. Our drinks were handcrafted and perfect! The food was amazing and perfect to our specifications. The seafood was fresh! The ambience was great for a date! Perfect for a quick getaway! I want to thank Wade again he made our experience
Infrequent visits from our server. BBQ joint decor. No attention paid and no replacement when I spilled a cocktail on myself. Checked on our food quality only when we were almost finished. I am unlikely to return...why spend $90 a person for this level of service?
Always a great meal. Wade was our server, fun happy and very good.
This was a third trip to WSS; twice for lunch as a couple, and this time dinner for four. This is an authentic neighborhood steakhouse, but without the pretence of some in the city and national brands, of which I've been to most. It is local, small- about 40-50 seats, a great value, and excellent steaks. The 12 oz. strip is a steal at $27, as is the 40 oz. porterhouse for two, at $79. The steaks are delicious, and come out perfect every time, as do the classic sides of mashed/fried potatoes and more. The calamari is very good; as is the bacon. The crab cakes are good (not MD excellent). The sauteed vegetables are perfectly prepared. Everything is made to order, and hot- the kitchen is a few yards from every table. The portions beyond the steaks are just right- not too large, or too small. Pasta, pork and fish are also available. Service is very good. Waiters bring out dishes at your pace, and runners keep the table clean and neat between courses. The staff remembered us the second time, by name.
Drinks are reasonable, at about $12, as is wine. A good bottle of Malbec is under $50.
This is a great place for steak and more, serving all day, as a good steakhouse should.
Great food & Service. Fresh & cooked ingredients. Not a massive menu list -> focus on quality.
Fit our occasion perfectly - food was above average, service was outstanding, and the ambiance was great. Relatively quiet early(ish) on a Saturday night.
Would definitely recommend this place! At first glance I wasn’t expecting it to be good, but I’m glad I gave it a try. Place is small but cozy. Food was excellent!! Steak and crab cakes are phenomenal!! It’s a little out of the way from the typical tourist areas but not hard to find. Will definitely be back next time I’m in New York!
Great place away from the tourist areas just a bit. Awesome food and service.
A Nice place with good vibrations and friendly service. Very good and welldone food, we enjoyed it all. The wine was Worre the price.
If we have to comment on Changes to the better, it has to be the rush the servant had to make us order dessert - felt it like we better use some more money quick or as someone need the table fast after us.
When going out on a restaurant like this we need space and time for the full experience.
Will we be back? Absolutely!! Next time in NY
The waiter service was excellent with helpful information on menu provided. Food itself was very good however main course arrived before we had completed our starters. However that was the kitchens fault and not the waiters.
Overall I would recommend this restaurant to both local New Yorker's and tourists like myself and its value for money was excellent.
Amazing service and fantastic food: s must go place
Very good food!
It was so over the top noisy that we left after we ordered but didn't even finish our drinks. We went somewhere else for dinner
Excellent service and food as always. Highly recommende
Overall very nice!
Excellent steak and sides. great service and great prices for the nyc.
Très bonnes viandes cuites comme demandé. Patron très sympa qui parle un peu français. À recommander dans le quartier hell'kitchen
I’ve been there with my boyfriend, for my birthday dinner.
A wonderful t-bone and special ribs with barbecue sauce.
Rustic fries and garlic melted potatoes.. so good!
We’ve got a Brooklyn lager beer with and it was so good together!
We recommend the place!
A lovely little steakhouse we felt upon, the steak was amazing, would highly recommend. Staff were very attentive, helpful and polite. Portions were generous but not overfacing.
Great food and waitstaff
What would have been a fine pre-theatre dinner, ended on a sour note. We noticed an extra $4 charge on the check. When we inquired, the waitress told us she added extra vodka to the cocktail since it was ordered neat . Additionally my guest ordered a filet and the waitress asked how he would like the shrimp, not telling him it was an add on and an additional $18. Seems very dubious salesmanship at best.
My wife and I have been to WSS several times since we retired and moved into the neighborhood a few months ago. We have enjoyed the lunch special and the steaks on a few of other occasions. Last weekend, swung by to see if we could get a table for a quick bite to eat. It was packed, but since it was 9pm on Saturday night, we decided to wait for a table. NBD, we waited with another couple waiting for a table, they were seated immediately, we waited 15 minutes, but hostess seated my wife and I at a large table for 4 even though it was just the two of us. Wade, our waiter, came by quickly and took our drink order. My wife is diabetic and needed to eat, we requested a couple pieces of bread, Wade was great, he immediately went to the computer next to our table (we were seated next to the kitchen, which is the entire reason for writing this review) and entered order for drinks/bread. Wade returned with wine, moments later gave us bread and took order - we opted to go for burgers because it's one of the quicker items on the menu since we having a blood sugar issue. Waiter stepped back to computer to order food, someone in the kitchen started screaming at him thru the food window, not normal conversational talk, butACTUAL SCREAMING and the dropping of MANY F-BOMBS. We were seated less than 4 feet away, privy to the entire inappropriate exchange, suffice to say, entirely one sided from the kitchen -aimed at the waiter like he had a target on his forehead. Apparently the kitchen has a problem with bread. (which meant a problem with OUR ORDER.) Less than 15 minutes later the same miserable kitchen worker was screaming expletives at the tall waitress, this time because someone wanted their steak cooked longer - he felt he had already cooked it enough -- last time I checked, whoever has to eat the food will decide if it's cooked enough!
Note to the management, we enjoy your restaurant but it seems like bread shouldn't be such a big deal for the kitchen!
Steaks were fantastic; perfectly cooked. Quick service too.
Best steak I've eaten for a long time. Portions are large, may have been better to share sides. Scallop starter was lovely. Great quick service, thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Thank you. Westside Steak House
Our last evening in NY, and the food was perfect again😜
Too many bad things to mention. Stay far far way staff was rude, and food is average at best.
Best steak in nyc ....superb
We've been 3 times and are never disappointed! Wine selection is good and prices aren't ridiculous. Fillets are cooked perfectly. Grilled asparagus is awesome. Wait staff is experienced, professional, courteous, knowledgeable. Never rushed. We love having this a 4- minute walk from our apartment. Our 'go-to' in midtown west.
