Came here while on business. Been here once before. Service very good snd seated right away. Served bread and water. Started with lobster cocktail and ceaser salad. $12 for the salad and $20 for the lobster. Caeser was very tasty and the lobter was fresh served with good sauces. The 16oz NY Strip was cooked very well as was the... More

A last minute decision to have dinner here on a whim, we didn't have a reservation but they accommodated a party of two easily. The chicken masala was to die for as was the garlic mash. Highly recommend a good steakhouse with large servings!

2 of us ate Filet, Potatoes and asparagus at lunch for $120. Not bad. Not to mention the best pecan pie I've ever had in my life. No kidding.

Went for lunch and we enjoyed the lunch specials of a Classic burger with mushrooms and the baked cod fish. Both dishes were outstanding. The waiters were really nice.

Our server, Sean, was very nice and informative, and went out of his way to make us feel welcome I thought. Steaks were excellent quality as you'd expect, and found a good Brunello di Montalcino at a reasonable price. Service overall was spotty, though (glasses were frequently empty for some time before anyone noticed, usually because we said something). My... More

Stopped in for lunch during a day shopping. Restaurant has a lovely feel, it looks very posh but with a homely feel. The food was lovely I had salmon and my partner had a burger. The service wasn't the best but the food made up for it. I suspect it aims at a business crowd rather than tourists on a... More

This is a great place for a client lunch - it's right near the Javitts Center and it's easily walkable from Midtown, 34th Street, MSG, etc. They offer a wide variety of aged steaks, meats, burgers, etc. They even have a sushi bar! Appetizers are always awesome. The lobster bisque is probably the best lobster bisque you've ever had. Having... More

The service was attentive and the setting was comfortable, but when we go to dinner, it's the FOOD that matters most and, on this count, Uncle Jack's fell short. The lobster and garlic mashed potatoes were the standout, however, the steak wasn't near the quality of Peter Lugers and the "signature" crabcakes were disappointing, as was the spinach.

One of the best steak I've ever eat ... And the waiter was so kind with us, the same thing for the Brazilian one who understood our language :)

Our 'captain' did look after us well, the poor guy does the same speech over and over again with good new york charm. However the rest of the team on the floor seemed to have a big problem. The staff all looked so fed up, at one point there was a bit of a fight between 2 'captains'. The food... More
