We ate here twice. The steaks were out of this world and every bit as good as on previous visits. Cocktails were excellent and the sweet chilli squid starter very good. Not cheap but excellent quality steaks and lovely lobster tails.

Was expecting great things about this restaurant after hearing about it from friends and it did not disappoint. Service was fantastic (thank you Sarko) and we were given all the info we needed on the cuts of meat. Needless to say portions are huge and sides can definitely be shared. The meat was tasty and so beautifully cooked. The atmosphere... More

I had a confirmed reservation and arrived a few minutes early. Initially they denied my reservation but as I stood my ground I was eventually found a table. Maybe they expect you to use their bar as you wait to add to their profits. The bar is a prop up for loud drunks. There is a good menu but clients... More

Referred to the Chelsea Market which has lots of casual places to eat, with minimal seating, we walked through, enjoyed the shops but after a long day & no food really wanted to be waited on! Walking out, my friend spotted this place & remembered a local friend loving it. Across the street we went for great service, old style... More

I had the Bone in Rib Eye with a side of Asparagus with Hollandaise sauce. My wife had the Filet Mignon which she loved. This is I believe the Oldest Steakhouse in NYC. The Dinner was excellent.

After seeing a TV show about the Kobe burger, our family of three made this restaurant a stop during our visit to NYC. We don't eat out very often, maybe twice a year (except on vacation, of course) - because we're usually disappointed when we do. Quite the contrary with the Old Homestead. The Kobe burger that my husband had... More

Had the Florida Rock Shrimp Tempura for starter and Gotham Rib on the bone (24oz) with Coldwater Lobster Tail for mains. Thoroughly enjoyed all of it - the shrimp and lobster were delicately cooked just right and my medium rare steak came out exactly medium rare. Only negative is that the prices are a little on the high side, but... More
