Really good steak!

Went for lunch with my niece, she had the sirloin and I had the prime rib, both medium rare and both really good. Creamed spinach and French fries on the side plus pecan pie for dessert and we were quite full and happy, The Grill is perfect for casual lunch with family, friends or colleagues. Not... read more

Dined here with my family while visiting NYC on Monday January 18th. at 6:00 The Colorado rib eye was cooked correct, medium rare, but it was not at all tender. Expected more for $56.00. Several reviews on trip advisor mentioned the baked potato was sub par, mine was over baked and tuff. $8.00. Service was ok. Off my list of... More

We went on Saturday night, Dec. 12th and only had to wait ten minutes for our table. They held the table from our Open Table reservation because we were late and I know they didn't have to. Kudos to the hostess (and she let my daughter charge her iPhone in front)! The filet mignon Oscar was spectacular-perfectly cooked to medium.... More

By the time we got to the hotel late Sunday night all nearby restaurants were closed or in the process. One hostess recommended trying this place. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised. We had a great late night dinner (they are open until 2:00 am). The Sicilian waiter who served our table was excellent. Good wine, perfect salmon, creamed... More

Waiter was very friendly and steak I had was very well prepared. Old school restaurant, but a little overpriced (even since I am used to NYC standards). May go back to this place

Dinner at Wollenskys Grill never disappoints. We go several times a year and have been going every New Year's Eve for several years. My husband and I celebrated my birthday last night and it was wonderful. Our filets were excellent and so was the service. The Grill is much more laid back than the main restaurant and is a great...

I had the Fillet with a baked potato. The fillet was very good. Cooked perfect. Baked potato was a little over cooked. The service was slow and the place was not very full. They worked in a team and maybe I was in the slow section by window. The special board was mounted so only 1 table can see it.... More

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.
