At Pace's, we are extremely attentive to your steaks long before they get to the table! First, we select only the finest meat available directly from market docks in the heart of New York City's famed meatpacking district. The cuts spend weeks under careful attention in our specially constructed aging rooms. This process guarantees that we serve only the tastiest, most tender cuts of prime beef that rival even the legendary old steak houses of New York City. For those with a creative palate, our marinated steaks are bathed in a carefully prepared sauce for three full days until each succulent bite is infused with the full flavor of our secret family recipe. Needless to say, our bar is fully stocked with a dazzling selection of fine wines and spirits.

I had a double cut steak. It was perfectly medium rare but unfortunately it was burned on both sides. Kind of very black burned meat. Do not know if this needs to be that dark but it was not tasty any more. Maybe the grill / pan was way to hot. At the end... It was not worth the money... More

Our meal at Pace's was excellent. The service was attentive, personable, and prompt. The mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat and breadcrumbs with a white wine cream sauce were fresh and fabulously tasty. The lobster bisque was good, but not great. My bone-in ribeye was blackened and cooked to perfection. Clearly one of the best steaks I've ever eaten. My wife's petite... More

Pace's is expensive. There is no doubt about that, but it is worth it! Whether you get one of their marinated steaks or a steak paired with sauces (horseradish sauce is one good choice), you will be moaning with pleasure at every bite. This is definitely the best steak I have ever had.

Best steak you ever had? That's a compliment we take very highly -- thanks so much! Our prices might be a little higher than others, but we're glad you agree that our ingredients and flavors more than justify the cost. We appreciate your support, and we hope you'll dine with us again soon! All the best, Pace's Steak House team More

This is the place to go if you want to have a great meal. Great steaks and great service. The price is comparable to other top notch steakhouses. The quality is superb. Cant beat their porterhouse.

Took my brother to Pace's Steak House on Long Island for his retirement dinner, this is an excellent restaurant in the center of Long Island. The atmosphere is great as well as the staff. We both had the porterhouse which was on par with any of the big name Steakhouses in NYC without the crowds and parking hastle.

We may not be a big name yet, Ken, but that could change with more supporters like you (don't worry -- we'll do our best to stay hassle-free). Thanks so much for choosing us for your family's special occasion -- we're glad we could help make your brother's retirement memorable, and we hope to see you both again someday soon!... More

Waitstaff pushed drinks. Bread was stale. Waitstaff forgot my salad, and had to be reminded. Then they forgot the sauteed mushroom side, and again had to be reminded. The sides were average, and would have been "good" for a budget restaurant, but not equal to the price for this "high end" restaurant. The steak was good, tender, but eventually average.... More
