Worth a visit but timing is the essence

We visited New York in July and booked this restaurant for lunch on 1st June as soon as booking for our date became available. We went with our two children aged 17 and 21. We arrived an hour early because when we got off the subway the restaurant was a short obvious walk and we were there. It was... read more

This was my second time visiting Peter Luger. M,e sure you have reservations as I saw people without reservation were told they could not be accommodated that day. Porterhouse steak was super delicious

We were not able to complete a reservation. The only way to reserve is by phone, but make sure that you are equipped with a US national phone number, otherwise your reservation will not be accepted. I have never experienced such a snotty and arrogant behavior towards a customer by someone asking for such hilarious prices. By the way this... More

This month I visited the Peter Lugers Steak House at Brooklyn. It was one of the best steak experiences I've ever had. We ordered a steak for three to cover the four of us. The steak was cooked to perfection with an amazing taste. Both the amount of juices the steak had and the tenderness of the steak amazed me.... More

True to friends' recommendations, it's one hella' steakhouse. However, I did hear from some friends that sometimes (very rarely though), the steak may be good and not great. So I dropped my great expectation a little bit but when them steaks were placed before me and I had the first bite, it was great!! The waiters were friendly and chatty... More

I wanted to visit this place for a very long time. I ordered the steak for one and was slightly disappointed with the flavor and quality of the meat. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I would not come back to this place. Thought the wait was not worth it (or the price).

Good steakhouse. This is a definite icon and legend in Brooklyn. The portions are huge so if you order the steak for 4 people definitely only get 2 because the cuts are really thick. The prices are hefty so make sure to take lots of cash (as they only accept cash as payment).

Went to the Great Neck, NY location. Peter Lugers has the absolute best steak. They are a no nonsense establishment that's been around forever. The steaks are dry aged porterhouse cuts. Steaks come out sizzling on a hot skillet. Steak is awesome with or without Peter Lugers steak sauce. Waitstaff has a reputation for being a bit snobby but we... More

I've been going to Peter Luger since the 1980s. I used to live nearby in Williamsburg and it was always being talked about by the Brazilian TV Mogul, Boni. I used to be a frequenter there and the staff is amazingly friendly although they try to frighten you about the possibility that you might never go back because "it's too... More
