Steakhouse
Wollensky's Grill is adjacent to Smith & Wollensky, the quintessential New York City steakhouse. Perhaps Zagat says it best: "Less highfalutin" and somewhat "cheaper" than its next-door big brother, Smith & Wollensky, this "casual" East Midtowner serves "dynamite" steaks and burgers in "high-energy" environs; it's especially beloved for its "late-dining" hours (open nightly till 2 AM).

Always a treat to eat at Wollensky's Grill. Best Manhattans in town. Be sure to ask for the bread basket.

We been to S&W several times and the food and the service has always been excellent, bud this time we where a tad disappointed with the condition of the food. The quality of the meat was very good, as always, but not warm enough and that goes for the potatoes as well. I think this has to do with a delay in serving the plate in time, not that the food wasn't warm from the very beginning. I had to ask for a warm up of my beef and therefore my wife had to start eating hers, before mine returned. Everything else was very good so I trust this was a one time mistake.

I've been a S&W fan for years....always dined there when in NY. But this time it was very disappointing. Steaks took forever to arrive and when they did they were lukewarm. Same with the sides. We sent everything back and when the steaks returned they were hotter but of course at that point they were overcooked. No excuse for this experience at a renowned NY steakhouse. Also the bartender was rude. After paying for my drink he returned with my change and offhandedly threw the bills onto the bar. No smile, no thank you, no nothing. Next time I'm in NY, I'll try another steakhouse. Really too bad as S&W used to be the best....

It was nice food, presentation of the food could have been better - we had a whole head of broccoli, which didn’t look appetising. Also, large portions.

Incredibly poor service and we had to rely on other waitstaff for service as our waitress was MIA. I mentioned this to the host while dining and on my way out and he just smiled. I’ve been a regular for 15+ years and will not be returning anytime soon, if ever. This restaurant was always my recommendation for out of towners looking for a great NYC experience and it will no longer be.

We went there for hamburgers prior to going to a show. We asked for a quiet table and they accommodated us. Our waiter was excellent. It was freezing and he lowered the a/c and was very attentive. Unfortunately my husband was not happy with his burger as it was overcooked and dry. The fries were crispy as requested.

We had a wonderful dinner at Smythson with Linds keys where we dined in the Grill room and were served by the waiter named Benny. He did a fantastic job of welcoming us and suggesting some of the best items on their new menu and he was attentive and extremely gracious and hosting us that evening the steak was perfectly cooked the tuna tartare was fresh and perfectly prepared and finally the dessert course or something I will never forget thank you Benny and thank you so much

Had the Wollensky burger medium. The outside of the burger was well done, however, the inside was rare. The burger seemed to have been cooked as if it were frozen. Very disappointing.

I have been coming here off and on for 10+ years and have ordered the Cajun Steak numerous times.
I was shocked at how awful our steaks were this time around, and trust us, we are originally from Texas, so know our meat. The steaks had to be returned for being Well done (grey and tough) vs. Medium, then it came back Medium Rare with grease and oil running all inside the plate. It was the absolute most disgusting meal I have had in NYC - ate oil and meat.

Do NOT go here!!! If you are interested in having a fine dining experience or celebrating a special occasion this will be an awful experience. It took approximately 50 minutes to get our food. Our baked potatoes were over cooked. It’s over priced for the food you receive. Most of all it’s loud, extremely loud downstairs the people at the bar take over the dining experience. We couldn’t talk amongst ourselves at our table. We will never return.

Had a nice Saturday lunch with old colleagues in NYC for work and leisure. Food good as always and service was attentive. It's never really noisy in The Grill but even less so on the weekend which was great for conversation

Amazing service, Nicky was our waiter and he’s always on top of his game. Had lots of appetizers and entres per recommendations and the house wine was pretty good too. Highly recommend it if you’re looking for meat that’s aged perfectly.

I've been at the restaurant many times. We want to have a good lunch so we decided to go.
Maybe because it was weekend, the restaurant didn't have many people.
But the food is excelent always. We really enjoy the meal as usual.

When we go to the Grill I usually have the English cut prime ribs which I ordered again and my wife ordered the lamb chops.
The beef was overcooked and cold and the waiter offered another piece. The second piece was also unacceptable. My wifes lamb chops were very good.
The manager handled the matter in a professional manner and we will return.

Although my filet mignon was very good as well as my husband's clam chowder, the accompanying baked potato was tepid, my husband's ribs were slightly dry and the fries were over done.

The waiter never checked on us after we received our food therefore the problems were not addressed. He never replenished our drinks either. He checked on us after we were finished. Although I mentioned the problem, he still charged for both sides.
