I come to this location about every other month and am usually very happy. The food is excellent. Once in a while they make errors but are more than willing to correct it without any problems - once our Kobe meatballs were still raw on the inside and another time my steak came out medium well instead of medium rare....

We were referred to this hotel by the concierge of our hotel and couldn't have been so pleased as we would return again. In fact during our visit of four days we were almost tempted to return but opted to try something different every night. We tried the Kobe meatballs and Ceasar salad as an appetizer and those meatballs were... More

Arrived with no reservation, we were taken immediately to a table. Staff were attentive although quiet pretentious! My cocktail was good. My husbands starter of mixed shell fish had mussels, scallops, prawns and clams. The clams were rubberery and chewy. My main steak came without the onion rings I ordered but creamed spinach. The onions arrived freshly cooked but they... More

Dined here on a recent business trip. Authentic atmosphere of proper American steakhouse. Excellent service, good deal on a more expensive bottle of wine when our first two choices were it available and delicious steak

My wife and I popped into this restaurant after a tiring day walking around NYC. We sat at the bar and had a drink with some very friendly locals before being seated. The staff were helpful (especially the barman) and the food excellent. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for.

My husband and I stopped at Uncle Jack's this past Sunday during a short visit to NYC. Normally, I try to make restaurant reservations well in advance at the popular places seeing as how it is so hard to get into places on the spur of the moment. And then when you do, it's some raucous, pretentious place where you... More

I was recommended this Midtown restaurant so 11 of us visited. It was the worst restaurant experience my family and I have ever had. The food at best was probably below average and only warm. Four of us had the lobster surf and turf and the lobster was totally undercooked. The pompous maitre d and the manager told us that... More

My husband and I dined here a couple of evenings ago. We can be considered quite particular when it comes to dining establishments but Uncle Jack's Steakhouse surprisingly impressed us. We began our dinner with the colossal prawn cocktail. The impressively large prawns were cooked perfectly and were very fresh. The accompanying cocktail sauce was not from a jar -... More
