very nice steakhouse

The service was very friendly and efficient. The steak was perfectly cooked. With a good and cold draft beer on top of that... that was a very nice evening. A bit expensive but the meat is really good.

We had lunch here during our break from a workshop at the Open Center on 30th Street. The wait staff was a bit distracted and the crab cakes just ok. We never tried the meat dishes but we felt the prices were very high for two salads and crab cakes. The outdoor seating was very pleasant. There is really no... More

Very very good! Good, cozy interior, fast & professional service, very tasty food. Ordered a "fix priced" soup, fillet mignon and chocolate with coffee. Surprisingly huge (for example, instead of one fillet mignon, the portion consisted of two medium-sized pieces of tasty meat ). But bewear of touching plates, which are really hot.

Actually ate here a few year's ago - not 2015. Had a really lovely meal with my girlfriend. Steak of course. Service was outstanding. Pricier, but not relative to some resto's in NYC. Great spot to eat if you're in mid-town.

Service was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was old-school. The steak was nothing special but ok. For the price I had better. Fries and sides were getting cold. The wine was actually good value for the money. I have to admit I was disappointed after the good reviews.

The Canadian Bacon is excellent, as are the German potatoes and the Caesar salad, but the main treat is the steak itself, which is cooked to perfection every time. And if you enjoy using steak sauce their house blend is so good you'll dip your bread in it as well.

The BEST steak I have ever had! The restaurant has some dogdy reviews and i dont know why! We used the reservation service on trip advisor and it worked fine, the table was waiting when we arrived. The service was brilliant and seated outside with a view of the empire state building was awesome. The waiters were pleasant and made... More

Pleasant spring evening was too nice for inside. Sidewalk dining at it's finest. Started with wedge salad followed by a monster rib-eye. (surprised?) Side of creamed spinach and I was in heaven. Service was excellent. This is one to try.

As we entered the restaurant, the hostess asked I was the one who called about available space for 6 guests. I said it was me, and low and behold she had a table waiting without a reservation and not even asking. Wow, that was a great gesture to go ahead and have a table set for us, my guests from... More
