Overall slow service, had to request bread, then pepper for salad, and finally pepper again for potato. Compare to better restaurants providing or offering all these without request. Strip steak overcooked, requested medium rare, came out medium at best; did not request new steak.

Went 3 friends for a quick meal. The cobe burger was dry. Nothing more to say. Cold beer. But the it felt like we were in the wrong place. Seems like a couple of waiters looked down on us. Did not spend enough money. d

Bartender was attentive and accommodating. The meal was excellent but I would have preferred our server to pour our wine instead of a bus person or random worker walking by. Overall we enjoyed the atmosphere and our meals.

After watching many episodes of a television program where the owner of Uncle Jacks informs other owners how to run their restaurants I thought I would check his restaurant out. The food and service were excellent. We dine in a number of fine steakhouses and while the atmosphere here is old school the steaks and server's knowledge is second to... More

Really enjoyed our recent dinner here. Girls night out! We shared the "Porterhouse for two" and it was enough for the 4 of us. Each bite was to die for! The service was fantastic! Would highly recommend this place for fine dining! WORTH the $$$

Being British fans of Food Network's 'Restaurant Steakout' we were drawn to the idea of experiencing the legendary Uncle Jack's Steakhouse for ourselves but almost didn't due to other reviews. Thank goodness we did because it was one of the finest experiences we have had anywhere. We are seasoned travelers with wide ranging tastes in food used to the levels... More

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
