Nice dinner

we had steak and lamb chops. Both very delicious. A bit pricey, but enjoyed our evening. Good for couples. We sat on the enclosed porch but it was a little chilly. Would sit inside next time.

Nice restaurant. Meal was lovely and served well. My only concern was the Maitre d, on entering the restaurant he was on his phone he did acknowledge us eventually saying he wouldn't be a minute but he carried on with his phone call which appeared to be a personal call not business after a few minutes we were shown to...

Great place for a solid steak. As a restaurant, they offer other things as well, but I like to keep it simple and stick with steak. I'm usually here for business, so opt for medium rare to keep everyone happy, but go rare if you can to really enjoy their delicious aged steaks. Crab and shrimp are wonderful too, as... More

I like Wollenskys grill. It is less formal then Smith&Wollensky and the prices seem lower. The quality of the steaks are just as good. The service is fine. The ambiance is not as nice as the big brother.

Having arrived in the City and seeking a dependable meal, my wife and I decided to go to a place we have gone many times. My wife ordered the Roast Beef Hash (her favorite) and I the Veal Chop. When her hash came the poached egg was almost hard boiled and we sent it back. My chop was ordered medium... More

Consistent quality, great meat and service. Price on the high side for what you get but you pay for the classic and the consistency! Enjoyed with my son

You can order from the S&W menu when kitchen is open, so this is a great option. Excellent food. Always satisfies, though a little pricey. You get what you pay for.

Not sure what to say. Everything was excellent. Food. Drinks. Service. We were treated like kings and it's not because we are. They just know what they are doing here. Busy. Loud. It was perfect. The Beef Hash was one of the best things I have ever had ever. Don't miss it.

We called ahead and got a table for 5 for a late lunch/early dinner. Since it was not very busy at that time, we actually had a couple of servers. Seating was just inside the door, but with a great view of the street. Definitely an "Old New York" feel to the place, with wood paneling and vintage signs and... 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.
