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 two 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.

Went to Wolfgang's for my husband's birthday. Even during these crazy COVID-19 times, we felt very comfortable eating inside. Tables were divided with plastic dividers and all of the staff wore masks. The service was still amazing and so was the food. Thank you!!!

I had to get the Manager in order to order drinks, we waited 15 minutes with no waiter. When the waiter finally arrived the service improved. The upshot was we got a first round of drinks complimentary.

The service was excellent. They gave us a great table outside by a heater and the food was amazing, as it always is.

Food was terrible. Had to return 2 out of 4 entrees. Made us wait 30 minutes even though we had a reservation. Sat outside as trucks raced past us. Not relaxing dining. Salmon was supposed to be blackened, wasn’t and sent it back. My guest ordered her filet medium well and is was completely rare after 2 returns. Very ordinary. Nothing special. And very expensive

The food and service at this outpost of Wolfgang’s is always top notch. I was very impressed with how they adjusted the dining room for mandated indoor distancing.

The team did a very good job considering it was pretty chilly outside on Saturday night. Steak and lobster tasty as was the ever yummy Wolfgang's salad. Good choices of wine by the glass.

Waiter asked us to move and promised it was a better seat even though it was VERY CLEAR the other table was in a corner and not better in any way shape or form. Staff should take ALL customers into consideration.

The food was excellent. The outdoor seating was spacious and lovely and the service was great. I highly recommend treating yourself to this wonderful restaurant. Let’s hope the weather is kind to these owners so they continue to be a internal part of our neighborhood.

We love this restaurant, and it is our "go to" for most celebrations. When I booked the reservation, I specifically said it was for my wife's birthday. I requested a lobster for her and cheesecake for dessert. I was not advised by you, or the restaurant, that they were not serving lobsters until after Labor Day. My wife and I were both disappointed, but it will not deter us from going again. We have been guests there for years, and it is still our favorite. Please share this with your and the restaurant's staff. Michael Rosenberg

I had been to Wokfgang’s several times pre COVID and had great meals. Perhaps something was off but it wasn’t the same.

The prices seemed to have increased (reducing the value) and the services as of. For example, I wanted a burger and was told by the waiter that they didn’t serve it at dinner. Yet a saw two being delivered to a table next to us.

We had to ask for a refill on our water and had to ask to get another “adult” beverage. The waiter never came by to check in on us and we only saw him again when he asked if we wanted dessert.

I know COVID has been a challenge and operating on the sidewalk isn’t ideal. But for $50+ for steak you expect a different level of service.

Overall experience was fine. Nothing to complain about. Food was delicious and service was on time. Ordered the porterhouse steak for 2 and it was delicious. Crab cake was also amazing. My husband had their shrimp cocktail (he loved it). Will definitely be going back.

The food was wonderful as always. My only issue was that since it was outside dining, there were A LOT of little nats and bugs just flying over our table the entire time we were there. It was very annoying, but other than that the service was good, food was great, and it wasn’t too loud. The wine was great also.
