This place has excellent aged steaks what you can creatively upgrade to Oscar which means they will put crabmeat on top your steak. The seafood tower looked impressive although I'm not into eating cold seafood except shrimp cocktail they actually serve the lobster and everything else cold with this appetizer. I had the fillet which was amazing paired with a... More

My wife and I came here for our anniversary for the first time ever. Walking in was strange, almost seemed like you were walking in the back, but it was probably because it took a couple minutes for the Host to notice we were even there. Once we got sat out server was very nice, but then disappeared for a... More

We enjoyed dinner here with friends over Thanksgiving weekend. We dined later in the evening when most of the crowd had cleared from the restaurant. The staff was very accommodating in letting us choose our seating area (we had a view of the streetscape and holiday decorations). With the exception of one unusual occurrence, the meal was perfect (details at... More

We made reservations on a whim and were glad we did. Our meal was excellent, but our service was a little off. We were late getting a second round of drinks and the wine we ordered with our meal didn't arrive. Our waiter was nice and apologized, and we did get some nice extras on the house to compensate us.... More

This was my first time at this restaurant. I was there with a group and we were seated in a separate area with a big mouse on the wall overseeing us. The environment of the all restaurant is absolutely nice and the decoration very interesting. As a starter I had a nice green salad which was good, but nothing of... More

This was my first dining experience at Smith and Wollensky's, and it didn't disappoint! I was most impressed with the 14 oz. filet I ordered. It was done a perfect medium and the au poivre sauce was second to none. The pace of the meal was also spot on, and the waiter was always close by without being obtrusive. I... More

Excellent food. Unfortunately was made to feel very uncomfortable. It was obvious that the waiter was on auto pilot and did not engage at all. Then told us he expected a 40$ tip even though we had given him 20$ for service which in England would have gained him zero. Avoid this place if your from out of town.

Evening was perfect. The service was attentive, but not overbearing. Drinks were super. The filets were fabulous...the bernaise was an excellent accent to a perfect steak. Pricey evening, but we'll worth it.

Evening and meal began quite nicely, great attentive service but not hovering, really good food. But, the evening and meal ended with it circling the drain, our waiter disappeared, our meal came out overdone and cool not hot. Ick! Entire restaurant caters to regulars and treats visitors as an annoyance. Very expensive also for this kind of poor service, should... More
