Great steakhouse

This is a great steakhouse in New York City. We went there in April 2015. Quite good service, Excellent quality beef, very well prepared, cooked exactly to the pint you asked for. In the same category as Keen´s Steakhouse, in quality of food and in prices.

I have been to this place several times and each time was different. Today I had their lunch offer of 3 mini burgers (Kobe, Fillet and Sirloin) plus salad and a glass of wine for $25. This is a good value for money. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly. The decor and atmosphere is like out of... More

I visited the Old Homestead with friends while vacationing in New York city. All of us had been looking foward to this dinner. When we dine in a nice restaurant, we like to take our time and enjoy the entire experience. We ordered drinks and appatizers and settled in. When the waiter returned with our drinks, he pressed us to... More

Amazing Service and the Food was outstanding. My boyfriend and I have tried some great steakhouse around the country and the old homestead is by far amazing. Reservation are recommended and the bacon wrapped steak was delicious.

The steak was superb, but the sides were disappointing. The wine and service were good, but for the price, I think they need to do a bit better. I had a 14oz sirloin which came well seared and nicely caramelised on the outside and wonderfully tender on the inside. Excellent. Following the advice of various reviewers I took a side... More

Visiting our NYC office, I went here after work with 3 other folks from the office. While the food was certainly tasty enough, and our server was quite charming, the size of the dining area made it nearly impossible for us to hear each other speaking, which lessened the fun of the evening. Service was also extremely slow: we were... More

We came to celebrate my daughter's birthday on a Thursday night. We each ordered the 10 oz. filet that comes with a potato cake. It was outstanding as was the Caesar salad and garlic bread with a cheese dipping sauce. The chocolate cake was also delicious. The only fault was with the table and wait staff. Even though I specified... More

Recently, a good friend and myself dined at this classic NY steakhouse. Old Homestead has a legendary history in NYC and is known to be a great steakhouse. We started with a couple of martinis as the bar - small but welcoming bar with solid drinks. Once we sat, I ordered a nice wine off the wine list. The waiter... More

The food was good. The service simply awful. The waiter did not want to explain anything regarding the courses, despite the fact that we specified that we had 2 of the guests intolerants to gluten. Not only he was not responsive, but he was clearly wishing we would not have been there. The only moment he has shown some interest... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
