Good service, great steaks

Wanted a nice, but not too fancy restaurant for our last night in NYC. Our concierge recommended this place as it was close to our hotel and it was exactly what we wanted. Good food, good wine list, and we didn't feel we had to be super dressed up. Was a little pricy for what we're used to, but... read more

Uncle Jacks's was recommended to us by the concierge of our hotel. We had an excellent meal and the staff were most helpful with suggestions as to what was good. A great evening out, would return again.

We reserved at this restaurant before the U2 concert along with many others with the same idea. Service was mediocre and they messed up our order because they were very busy. They did compensate us however I wouldn't go back.

Party of three ate at the bar before the recent U2 concert. Our bartender Victor was friendly, professional and provided excellent service. The beer, appetizers and steaks he recommended we very tasty. A special shout out to the Maple Bacon – a must have! We will definitely return.

Uncle Jack's Steak House in Bayside NY has an ample menu besides steaks. We had great salads and crab cakes for appetizers. Both ordered filet mignon cooked perfectly! Being a weekend, it was noisy. Also there were no paper towels in rest room. We called it to their attention and was not rectified until almost ready to leave.

what's with all the hype? Another "TV Celebrity" owned place that has no substance. All these reviews must be planted. there are many, i mean MANY steakhouses in NYC that are FAR better, provide quality and consistent service, and better prices in many cases. (Try old homestead for example) the best food item came form their SUSHI menu, but this... More

After watching Restaurant Stakeout I have always wanted to visit Uncle Jack's to see if the service and food was as good as Willie claims. I had the opportunity to visit Uncle Jack's last night and it was a wonderful experience. The staff and their service is impeccable. The food was amazing. There were 5 of us and we had... More

Had to find a restaurant close to MSG for the Billy Joel concert and this steakhouse was nearby (9th & 34). Great atmosphere, terrific service (Joel & Dina-they could not have been more helpful and accommodating) and most importantly, the best steak and sides I have ever had at any steakhouse. I've eaten at several much more expensive steakhouses in... More

As a lifetime New Yorker, I've dined at many steakhouses. Over the winter I visited Uncle Jack's W. 56th Street location twice. We used a Groupon both times. This place is classy; it's not your usual steakhouse dark booths with sawdust floor style of decor. Beautiful walls, stunning paintings, and impeccable service. It reminded my guy of an elegantly appointed... More

Three of us walked in without reservations and were promptly and courteously received and seated. Very comfortable and warm ambiance. The server was very conscientious and attentive to our desires. The steaks were great - very well prepared as were the "sides". nice wine list with excellent recommendations and comments from our servers. It was a busy evening but we... 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.
