...do not go to Uncle Jack's Steakhouse! The Porterhouse steak for two is so large that it is cut perpendicular to the bone and there are enough one-half inch thick slices of sirloin for two people and enough slices of filet for two people. The steak is cooked to your specifications with regard to char and temperature. The wedge salad... More

Service was impeccable. While pricey, you get what you pay for. It was well worth it. My steak was outstanding. I would go back there in a heart beat.

Cocktail arrived with a bottle cap in it. Likely from the ice bin. When I suggested they should empty the ice bin, I was told it wasn't a broken bottle and the cap must have just fell in...what else fell in? Steak and lamb were both badly overcooked - ordered medium rare, came out medium well to well. Didn't send... More

We came here while in NY for my husbands 40th birthday and the food was fantastic. The steaks are cooked and seasoned to perfection and are unbeatable. The waiting staff were extremely attentive and made us feel special, even bringing a cake at no extra charge. I would strongly recommend people to visit uncle jacks when in Manhattan.

There is so much "right" about Uncle Jack's it's a shame the steaks (on two occasions) were so very over-salted in the kitchen. As I said, the restaurant is worth visiting BUT if you like steak and not salt be SURE to have your waiter instruct the kitchen to put down the shaker.
