Wollensky's Grill is still one of the best Steak Joints in NYC
The Crew are a big part of that and add to the ambiance
There is the Grill Menu and the Restaurant Menu, both are awesome

This was such a lovely evening and location for a wonderful dinner. Our waiter Benny night have been the single best waiter I’ve ever experienced in New York City. He welcomed us as if we were family which is very rare for a popular midtown steakhouse, made some fantastic recommendations and made for a spectacular celebration for our group. We will be back and be sure to ask for Benny’s table when you arrive at the grill (and don’t miss the tuna tartar!)

People seated around us were obnoxiously loud, one member of the party was screaming. Another entitled jerk asked that the AC be shut off not down. Seriously. It was 85 degrees in NYC today. I like this restaurant but the lunch crowd today needs to go back into their COVID holes and hide until they can remember how to act.

Service was abysmal. Other surrounding tables had similar problems. The medium rare steak came out well done. Had to ask for the menu several times. Have eaten there several times before with opposite opinion.
We won’t go back. The evening was a great disappointment

Great night out with a great vibe. Food was excellent and the service was first class. I brought a friend to the Grill for his first visit and he could not say enough good things about his experience...and Jeff Leiske is a top notch manager. He made us feel as though we were family !

I try to have a long lunch at Wollensky’s Grill every time I get to NYC. The food is classic NY steakhouse, but the grill side of the restaurant is a bit more casual so I actually prefer it. We ate outdoors on the patio. This was nice, and the service did not suffer despite being out of immediate site of the wait staff.

My friends are vegetarian, and their solution was to order a mix of the side dishes, including baked potatoes, asparagus, broccoli and mushrooms. This looked like a surprising good option, but I went for the NY strip. It did not disappoint. Of course, nothing disappoints at Woolensky’s Grill.

Do NOT order the Cream Spinach.. I went to S&W Grill last Wednesday- 7/21, took 5 of my work colleagues. We had a great time as expected, but I became deathly ill the following day, running to sit on the toilet 30 to 40 times a day, and this continued through the nights, for 4 straight days. Went to the Urgent Care on Saturday, wrote me a script, and still not back to normal. This happened to me a few years ago at Bobby Vans, cream spinach as well

For my money this is the best steakhouse in the world. The food is perfect, the service is outstanding and we've never failed to have a spectacular time there. For more formal gatherings I go to the main restaurant but for casual times (with family or just seeing friends for dinner/drinks) I always go to the Grill. The staff is super friendly and helpful and you really can't beat the dry aged meats. My favorite thing on the menu is the rib eye but the prime rib is amazing and the seafood is among the best you'll get anywhere. Try everything. You can't go wrong.

It was wonderful to be welcomed back to the Wollensky Grill by Nick, one of our favorite waiters. Our server tonight, Valerie, was charming, knowledgeable and efficient. She saved my husband from disappointment when he could not locate his favorite by directing him to another menu item that more perfectly replicated what he was looking for. My filet mignon sandwich was perfectly cooked. Our cocktails were superbly crafted and delicious. We are so glad this neighborhood favorite has survived COVID!

The server completely forgot about serving bread to the table, only realised 45 minutes after we sat. The main course also took too long to arrive, almost an hour hour after we sat. When asked, the server's response was the kitchen was busy. He also patted me twice on the back which I thought was unnecessary. Visibly seemed inexperienced. The food when it eventually arrived was very good, just took way too long.
