As good as ever

For me it was the 60s all over again. Chopped liver with eggs and onions - wonderful. Lamb chops cut from the loin - perfectly cooked and enough food for an army. A NewYork classic. They never disappoint. A perfect pre theater meal.

I love this place-- it feels like Barney Miller's NYC! (I loved that show). We had the steak and asparagus which were both delicious, and finished with the cheesecake which was good too. We sat downstairs at the bar which has 3 tables plus 5 seats along the bar and it was a great atmosphere with mainly locals. I thought... More

Great steaks in this smaller steak house hidden away on the 2nd floor. Has about 20 tables but service was first class and portions were HUGE. The celebrities love this place as well everyone from George Bush Sr. to Larry King to Tom Selleck have their pictures up on the walls.

Once I'd got over the embarrassment of my wife ordering a Well Done steak on our first visit we had to go back when we returned for our 2nd visit to NYC.. Brilliant friendly little steak house a nice change from the carnage of Times... More

The waitstaff were kind and accommodating We arrived on a Monday night, after seeing Les Miz,..11pm..really their closing time, and they politely accepted us and then provided us with the best rib-eye steak!

Excellent place for dinner - especially steaks - before or after a broadway show. It is a cosy and authentic place with excellent service and perfect food.

Bad choice!! Still kicking myself for eating here with so many other fabulous choces in the area! So much for a great date night-- cramped seating, poor tasting risotto-- onion strings tasted like fast food. Never again!

Bway Theater old school steak house. It is what it purports to be, an expensive steakhouse. Entrees were good (sirloin and salmon) cooked perfectly. Sides were extra and not special. Desserts, pie and ice cream were average or below. Service was good and friendly. Ambiance was noisy, close tables, but acceptable.

Staying in Midtown

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.
