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.

Great food with a wonderful selection of wines and liquor making this a favorite of locals and tourists alike. The staff is always there before you need them and generous with suggestions on speciality food items.

Food and service was amazing. We were treated so nicely from start to finish. Prices maybe a little high for the side dishes… but we had such a good time, it was still worth it. Steaks were cooked PERFECTLY! Nothing is more frustrating than ordering steak medium rare and it comes over cooked! That was NOT the case here. They were perfect!

I have been a fan of Wolfgang's for quite sometime. After the closing of Wolfgang's at the Gotham Hotel, I chose 54th Street. To my joy, the wait staff from the Gotham was now working at the 54th Street location.
I will be back soon!

Surprised at the difference between this location and the 33rd/Park location. Disappointing.

I booked Wolfgang‘s Midtown on a recommendation from a friend who went a while back. I thought this would be a good place to celebrate my dad‘s birthday since he happened to be in town. When we entered the restaurant, I remember thinking the ambience was a little dark; it made it hard to see or read the menu. As we waited for our food, we noticed that it was particularly warm in the restaurant, which wasn’t ideal since the day had been rather hot. It turns out that the restaurant was having an issue with the air conditioning. No one came by to apologize or even to make sure that our water glasses were consistently filled considering how warm it was. Customer service was lax, and the restaurant was not even full; there was at least one staff member per occupied table. Thankfully, the food was good, but it didn’t make up for the lack of service and the discomfort we experienced during the dinner. Won’t be returning.

We were sitting at the bar. Great service and the bartender was wonderful to us. Bone in rib-eye was very good along with the sides. Would go there again.

For a prime steak house, the fringe details were disappointing. If they serve onion or other special bread, they should serve it warmed. They were gracious (ultimate) about a dish one of just didn’t like, when we acknowledged that there was nothing wrong with; it was just the wrong choice. After serving the first few slices of a hot steak, the server didn’t come back to serve the rest. That may have been because the dishes was cold. It should have been replaced by another war or hot dish. Overall, it is just another average first-class steak house wannabe.

You need to improve your lighting. You have beautiful flowers and artwork that have no lighting on them and are hardly noticed.. And a candle on each table would be a big improvement to the ambiance.

Very expensive and not at all as good as it used to be. The Caesar salad seemed like something you could get at any old restaurant- it was not handmade but just dressing on the romaine. Really lifeless salad. Steak was good and sides were good but overall too heavy. Advice from the waiter was weak- he didn’t advise on side dishes and we ended up ordering way too much food. This place has lost some of its old steakhouse allure. It felt formulaic and expensive. The cocktail was very good

Maybe this is an one-off experience. We have ordered porterhouse for 2 cooked medium. And it came out raw. Yes, raw and not rare. The waiter staff apologized but then nothing happened. We paid $140 and just left. (They did offer a dessert on the house, which honestly was just a lot of whipped cream and some fruits)

Have eaten here many times, but this time the food was below par. Bacon appetizer was inedible and the steak was full of grizzle. Need to find a different steak house.

Waiter was super slow, did not keep drinks full, did not return to take our orders for food and wine (regularly). We would have spent twice as much if he simply attended to our table properly.
