Bad night and worse excuses

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... read 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

Everything about my recent dinner to Wollensky's Grill was excellent from the wait staff to the food. There were two waiters who tended to my every need, including recommending an great local beer that they had on draft for my meal. The bread was amazingly good, and the wedge salad was one of the freshest and most delicious I have... More

We had a great time, the food is always great here, They have recently changed the restaurant to open up tables at the back. We were in the corner which was a bit claustrophobic but otherwise a great lunch

Very poor value for money. To spend $3-400 go somewhere with recognised merits, Gramercy Grill or 11 Madison Park. These lot are amateurs and charge a premium for the location, not the service/experience.

Juicy and delicious burger with Swiss cheese, pickles, tomato and great fries. Very friendly and helpful service - much prefer this side of the restaurant to the more formal main place next door.
