We've heard so many times how great Peter Luger's steaks were, that this May we decided to check by ourselves. Now I can be the one who say Peter Luger's steaks are really something; they are great. The service is also very good, waiters always eager to help; the french fries delicious, and the deserts are great. I will definitely... More

I have eaten here several times (my boyfriend is a fan), and I have been to all of the top steakhouses in Manhattan, as well. For me, Luger's is just okay. Decent steak, but not mind-blowing, and the no reservations policy is an annoyance.

Peter Luger is my favorite restaurant on earth! I am a Brazilian who's lived in New York City for over 20 years, I know steak houses very well. Their menu is very practical: steak for one, steak for two...great selection of wines. Make sure you order the german potatoes and the creamed spinach with your steak, out of this world!

For being such a famous institution I was really disappointed when I finally went there yesterday. The steak was excellent but the rest was poor. The waiters (especially the one serving the drinks at the bar and the lady doing the checks in the end) unfriendly and kind of annoyed with having customers, the place full of strange people, it...

Well finally 2 weeks ago I happen to be in NYC and made the effort to go to Brooklyn. I ordered porterhouse... More

Yes well worth experiencing but as a family of 5 it was super expensive. There are lots of other steak houses in NY with better atmosphere and value for money than here

Booked 3 months in advance after recommendations from friends and still had trouble getting a table at the time we would've liked! Just shows how popular this place is! If you're from overseas, they will only accept a local contact number against your reservation so gave our hotel number. We shared bacon & the tomato & onion salad to start.... More

If you like steak how you can't go to eat there? Impossible. Years after years and there steak is just marvolous. Service is fast. Only 2 minor issues: defintly expensive and don't accepet credit card!!! But we can live with it
