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.

Dinner was perfect. Great service and Wolfgang himself came over to our table to greet and have a chat, Nice seeing you and reminiscing about your days serving the "Schlagg" lol. Porterhouse for 2 was excellent... a 10 and ranked as one of the best steaks I've ever had, Shrimp cocktail and Colossal crabmeat cocktail to start were just perfection. Streak fries topped off a perfect dinner. Bravo Wolfgangs

Food was excellent as always but I found waiter service and attentiveness somewhat lacking. For the tip that is mandatory, I felt the waiters did not deserve it.

The food and service was excellent! The large table of loud tourists in t-shirts and baseball hats at the next table detracted from the experience, but we still thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

I've been to a lot of steakhouses in NY, and this is by far my favorite. Their porterhouse is consistently perfect every time I go, and beats even Peter Luger. That alone would keep me coming back, but everything else I've ordered off their menu has been equally high quality too.

The food was delicious, and the ambiance and service was great. The only thing it was a little pricey for two people, much pricier than any other famous steak house I’ve been to.

The meal was excellent. My one complaint is that you removed the NY Strip steak from the menu, and our portions were too big to finish.Also, it would be helpful to offer a petite filet mignon for those who prefer less meat and more vegetables in their diet

I have ordered a Ribeye medium and I have been served an over cooked steak
I have shared with the waiter in a very polite way if something had maybe gone wrong with my order and he replied to me that everything I had been provided with was absolutely fine.
He told that he was going to send the guy from the kitchen to me but nobody showed up till I was presented the bill which I have paid in full without any further comment and I have included a fair tip as well to make sure my sincere complaint was not absolute an excuse related to the payable amount.
That’s not really the type of service you expect from this type of restaurants.
Very sorry for such a bad experience

The food was consistently excellent and fairly priced for the excellent quality, but the waitstaff was mostly too busy talking to one another in a huddle to notice us or ask on any consistent basis if we needed anything. There was a delay until someone approached to ask us for our drink order, only approaching after we waved to signal someone. The same repeated for us to get their attention to order our apps and meal. Once the food arrived, the team served impeccably, but keep your waving hand handy and avoid this place if you're on a tight time deadline. Otherwise, the food is great and a gem that is less hectic or crowded than most other NY steakhouses.

The food was excellent. We were 8 for a birthday dinner and were at a table opposite the kitchen entrance. That was a negative. The other negative was the level of noise around us. It hindered cross the table conversation for us.

We were meeting up with family who live in NYC- Wolfgang’s food and service consistently superior. As we were having family time the waiter did not rush us and was parent as we lingered through courses. They make a superb martini and wine list had wide range of choices ranging from good value to pricey. We enjoyed a Stags Leap petit Syrah which was wonderful. For apps we shared oysters, clams, crab cocktail and lobster cocktail which were gobbled up. We shared a porterhouse for four and there was plenty for our son to take home. One of our group had the lamb and it was delicious. Fir sides you cannot go wrong with the German potatoes, creamed spinach and mushrooms. The onion rings were a hit too.
We splurged on desserts and the tartufo and hot fudge sundae were shared.
Is a fav spot when in NYC as tables allow you space to chat and catch up. Very lively bar scene as well.

Jeder sollte wissen,wenn er zu Wolfgang‘s geht,wird er ein Paar Hundert Dollars los.
Am Ende aber ein gelungener Abend.

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.

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.
