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.

Birthday lunch for colleague
Unfortunately, open table notification about birthday was not shared with server

However, server remedied the situation by taking birthday dessert back to put in a candle

I go to this steakhouse every couple of months for their lobster bisque and crab cakes.
The crab cake was outstanding, made to perfection with big chunks of crab. However I was a bit disappointed with the soup. It was a bit sour, more like a tomato soup than lobster bisque. Still, I will give it a try again. Great cream of spinach and filet mignon of superb quality compensated for mediocre soup. In terms of service, I must say we were left alone for quite a while. I am guessing it was done due to our strong engagement in a conversation, yet I would expect someone to come over faster and take our order. The staff was very attentive later on. Thank you! I will be back soon.

My family was there to celebrate my son's birthday. We had been there many times before as my husband knew Wolfgang when he was at Peter Lugar's Steakhouse. From the first day Wolfgang opened his steakhouse it was amazing and has become our favorite steak house. Looking forward to our next dinner at Wolfgang's

From the minute we walked in we had a great experience. The reception was welcoming and the bartender was ready to ply us with drinks. We also were informed that one of our favorite TV shows Billions fimed part of an episode there...and ironically we ended up at the same table that was used in the episode. The place is beautiful and the service is top notch. It is NOT cheap but for city pricing (we are from Long Island) it was absolutely expected. My husband could NOT stop raving about the crab cake, I had the wedge and the dressing was clearly homemade. We ordered the Porterhouse for two which was made EXACTLY as we ordered it.... though we were unable to finish it...but we still managed to squeeze in the chocolate cake for the dessert with the whipped cream. We will definately be back!!!

Service was okay. Very noisy on Thursday.
Steak was good, but rib steak was a bit tough. Not up to par. Been at Wofgangs many times in the past.
Sides were excellent

Great steak, longer waiting time than expected. make sure you order some fast entries or you'll end up stuffing yourself with the unexpectedly low quality bread. Fair wine list with cheaper prices. We were seated in the side room which is maybe quieter but also less scenic.

Very loud, unprofessional staff, run down - didn’t even ask to check my coat. Food was average and very expensive and that’s when we got the right order because waiter didn’t write it down but also could not remember what we ordered so sent the wrong things. This is a place to skip. Very disappointing birthday, which they also did not acknowledge even though it was listed in the reservation details...

The survey question about noise level was interesting. As no NYC steakhouse would be a genuine NYC steakhouse without lots of chatter. Its part of the NYC charm. Wolfgang's is no exception in that regard. Great dining experience.

Waiter was good but Manager had zero people skills, very rude when trying to turn over the table. Steaks just ok by NYC steakhouse standards . If crowded diners need to be prepared to eat and run .

Small space with tables really close to each other. Loud with everyone talking. Waiter didn’t bring drink menu just asked right away what we would like to drink. Food was really good; however I’ve had better at other steakhouses. Nothing to rave about.

I love Wolfgang’s but when you get the worse table in the house no matter how good it is it takes away from the experience. $600 l and I couldn’t even see the food I was eating. I did complain and they sympathized with me but did nothing. All I wanted was a candle !!!!
They could have sent over a drink or dessert , but alas they did not. I love Wolfgang’s and go several times a year with and without clients so this make me sad and puts a knife in my heart.

Very nice service of everyone from the arrival to leaving.
Foods are much better than Peter Lugar in Great Neck.
Oysters were well chilled and the Wolfgang salad was also very good.
No need to say about their steak!

Your hostesses are very rude and extremely unfriendly and unwelcoming. I walked in and it was like they were doing me a favor by listening to me tell them what time my reservation was and what my name was. They proceeded to tell me that my party had checked in and was waiting for me in the bar areas which was completely false. I went to get my coat at the end of the night from the coat check and the same thing occurred, it seemed they were doing me a favor by helping me get my coat. Not cool.

This time, and I went to wolfgang numerous times, the flag ship i.e. the porterhouse wasn't good. Hard to chew and full of muscles and strings. The side dishes, firsts and dessert was excellent as always.
