Steakhouse
With 4 decades of experience, Wolfgang Zwiener didn't duplicate an exceptional steakhouse, he improved on it to make Wolfgang's Steakhouse exceptional. The porterhouse steak for one, two, four or more, is an outstanding choice. The atmosphere, expanded menu & professional service will appeal to even the most exacting diners. Wolfgang's is pleased to add this location in the heart of Midtown East.

Das Fleisch ist Perfekt zubereitet,was sich anscheinend im Preis wiederspiegel muss.
Jeder sollte wissen,wenn er zu Wolfgang‘s geht,wird er ein Paar Hundert Dollars los.
Am Ende aber ein gelungener Abend.
Danke

The restaurant has an older feel, which was added to by the fact that they were playing what sounded like 80s music. Rather than detracting, however, it felt like it contributed to the whole experience. My party of 3 ordered the porterhouse for 2, a side of German potatoes (crispy), and the mixed greens salad. I knew my mother and aunt eat smaller portions, and that the steak for 2 would be enough. The food was delicious and more than enough; I thought the potatoes were a bit salty, but my family thought they were perfect, and surprisingly I found myself wishing there was more salad. I had been to Peter Luger in 2017, and this was definitely just as good, with the added benefit of having convenient locations and the ability to pay by card. I would eat here again if I wanted to treat someone.

The waiters were rude and the steaks weren’t as good as usual.
They weren’t very flavorful this time.

Usually, my experience at Wolfgangs is very good, however, this time the food was severely lacking. Most noticeably, the porterhouse was far below its typical standard - very "gristly" and undercooked on the strip side / burned on the filet side.

Service in the Dining Room was very slow. No one took a drink order until we requested a a wine list from a passing waiter. We had been at the table for at least 15 minutes before we even saw someone to ask. But the food was excellent! Service at the bar was also very good. Bartenders very attentive and friendly.

What a great dinner! Start to finish it was all very good. The caesar salad was excellent, oysters were great. My wife had the filet and I had the NY strip. Both were cooked just as we asked with a great crust! The filet was one of the biggest we had seen and my wife could not finish it. Service was also excellent. They have a pretty extensive wine list as well.

Everything was fine, food was good but for the price I would’ve expected better. One of the waiters ran into a chair at the table we were at and it hit my leg and he didn’t acknowledge it at all. Other than that it was a very nice setting and the drinks were good. However, I would expect more from such a “high quality” restaurant.

I ordered the yellow fin tuna crispy on the outside and medium on the inside.It was served raw on the inside.I was assured that it would be done to my specification and it arrived well done on the inside and was not eatable.Restaurants of this caliber should be able to deliver food properly,especially since I had requested that the waiter check with the chef's ability to prepare the fish as I had requested.

Walking into the restaurant at 7:25 with a 7:30 reservation awarded us a 20 minute wait😕
So you can make the reservation, you just can’t keep the reservation.
The dinning room was buzzing, loudly. We were seated at a table that had the added feature of having the waiter bump your chair every time he passed, he passed a lot.
There were five people in our party we ordered two Wolfgang salads, which were delicious, and a tomato and onion salad, which consisted of two slices of tomato and an extremely huge slice of onion. The onion being the largest thing on the plate. This had no seasoning or dressing 🙁🙁
For dinner four of us had porterhouse steak for two , one medium rare the other rare. We deemed these fabulous. Our fifth dinner ordered theChilean sea bass, again this was under seasoned, but with a sprinkle of salt and pepper was delicious. The cottage fries were delicious, the creamed spinach, creamy, and the broccoli, omg wonderful.

We were celebrating my son’s 10th birthday. The restaurant was aware of this because I had indicated this when making the table reservation. Yet, we were seated right next to the kitchen door when many other tables were in fact vacant, and the staff was barely attentive.

Waren schon ein paar mal im Wolfgangs. Bisher immer sehr zufrieden. Dieses Mal war es das Lokal in der 54. Straße. Es mag am Zeitpunkt gelegen haben knapp eine Woche vor Weihnachten, aber die Lautstärke war unerträglich! 3 Gruppen mit 10-12 Männern die sich mit vollster Lautstärke fast schon angeschrien haben. Nichts gegen Weihnachtsfeiern und ausgelassene Stimmung aber bei dem Preisniveau erwarte ich, dass von seitens der Leitung des Restaurants eingegriffen wird.
Das war für uns das letzte mal im Wolfgangs.
