Description: The Post House offers outstanding steakhouse cuisine in a warm, welcoming dining room with rich, clubby decor and polished service. Fresh salads, crabcakes, or tiered-presentation seafood bouquets are a wonderful way to begin any meal. In addition to a selection of top-quality steaks as main courses, the menu also includes several delicious seafood options, including lobsters served broiled or steamed. A selection of side dishes, including Onion Rings, Grilled Vegetables, and Hash Browns complete the meal. Given the menu's breadth, it is no surprise that the wine list includes over 300 international selections and has been distinguished with a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and the Wine Enthusiast Restaurant Award. Another one of the highlights of dining at The Post House is ending the meal with a selection from the dessert cart, where including house favorites such as Frozen Creme brulee with Coconut Tuile, Toasted Pecan Tart, and Rustic Chocolate Cake.

The restaurant is located in a rich area of NYC, goers (not for young people) from the city, not turists. We had meat and red wine, both extremely good. The meat was cooked perfectly, soft and very tasty. Service very good with waiters wearing classic style. High prices.

The Post House is a reflection of its silk stocking district location. The low lit mahogany bar replete with oriental rugs, has the aura of an old school men's club. Drinks are spot on. No blenders here. Well heeled clientele receive attentive, polite service. No 20 something hipster waiters who look like they haven't showered in a week. The food... More

Got there early and started at the bar. They carried "Pernod" but the barman had no idea how to pour it. We then got seated and the room was packed. We were sat at the end ofthe dining room and both on a bench next to each other instead of facing. That was a major bummer! Service was good, portions... More

Bad acoustics. Too much noise. Too expensive. Part of a high end group and they've never gotten this one right. Pass.

The Post House is a 5 star steak house (with great lobster!!!!). It's expensive but it's one of my favorite places for lunch. The atmosphere is lovely. The tables are not close together so it's a quite place to sit and talk. AND the food is amazing. The prime rib (the smaller one) is enormous, the lobster salad is wonderful,... More

This place is outstanding and the wait staff knows what they are talking about. I know it is difficult to get excited about a Wedge Salad but once you try the one at the Post House your expectations in the future will change. All the food was excellent but this Wedge was exceptional to any I have ever had.

I have been going to Post House for around 30 years. This was my favorite restaurant--you could not find a better steak in NY, great seafood (including gargantuan lobsters) and great atmosphere. Something has happened in the past year, and it is not good! In the last four visits I have ordered filet mignon (twice) and the bone-in sirloin (twice).... More

On a hot August Saturday night it wasn't very busy. We were first directed to a table right near the serving station and since there were many empty tables we asked for another table. That was quickly provided. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu having worked there for many years. All of his suggestions were delicious and he... More

This is a little slice of heaven in a bustling city! This is actually a part of the Smith & Wollensky restaurant group of dining establishments, so you can expect comparable prices, offerings and service. I had the Double Colorado Lamp Chops and they were superb. Smaller and more intimate than most of the known steakhouses and well worth the... More
