My boyfriend and I were actually caught in a blizzard and we were starving! This was the only place we could see that was open late and it was such a lovely surprise. We knew it was expensive, but it was so worth it. The steaks were absolutely huge, massive sides and lovely wine. We sat for a few hours... More

Me and my partner came here in December 2013, after getting lost trying to find this place we eventually arrived and decided to go for a classic steak and I went for the chicken parmigiana. Our mouths dropped when our meals arrived! Steak was bigger than any I had seen before and so tender! My chicken parmigiana was actually 4... More

Okay so we didn't actually get too much into the menu, but we did enjoy sitting outside for a few brunch drinks on a Sunday. Perfect weather, outdoor seating, and a GREAT view of the empire state building. A fun place to people watch as well, the staff was most accommodating and I think we are going to need to... More

I don't know where to start. The best dry-aged beef I have ever had in a long time. Besides the food, the service was excellent and I will definitely be coming back for more.

I decided that since I was in New York, I had better have a New York steak. Ben & Jack's was just around the corner from my hotel and I spent a very pleasant evening there having dinner. The steak was really good, and I was very happy with the service too. I was travelling and eating on my own... More

I have eaten at nearly every NYC steakhouse, most multiple times. This is one decidedly NOT up to par. Start off being seated right outside the kitchen door as well as restrooms, and there was a steady stream of people all night passing inches away. The bread was stale. The waiter disputed my choice of wine as not on the... More

Pre-booked in advance since this restaurant came well recommended, but even on a Saturday evening you would probably get lucky since this establishment is not on the busiest part of Fifth Avenue. We skipped a starter and went straight to the "Steak for Two". At around $90 this would seem fairly expensive, but was really very good indeed. A perfect... More

Excellent food, had the easter special menu, service first class, a little costly, but well worth a visit, the New York sirloin was beautiful

We had the chef's special for $40/person, which was well worth the price. You receive a larger salad; a steak or filet mignon; and a dessert. All were delicious, and all four of us agreed. Basically, they took the Peter Luger's uber-famous steakhouse idea, and brought it from Brooklyn to Scottsdale. My dad said a few times afterward that it... More

We came to take the restaurant week dinner offer because last year we enjoyed some really good steaks. Unfortunately it was crowded, loud, and fast-food-service: the soup and steak were okay and the dessert very very sweet, and suddenly there's the bill on the table while you're still eating the dessert so that after one hour the table is ready...
