What to say about this place that hasn’t already been said. We arrived 5 minutes before it opened and had a quick look around before going in. as soon as you walk in you realise you’re in an authentic European steak house. The plaques and awards are hung on the wall opposite the bar and the head of house is... More

I was on the fence between 3 and 4 stars so rounded up. Yes, the steak is good, but not the best in the world as you've been let to believe. There are plenty of places in NY to get a great steak. (try Keen's, for example). Peter Luger is now more about the legend and the overall experience. Surly... More

When I told my American friends that I would travel to NYC, every single one of them said Peter Luger Steakhouse has THE BEST steak in the world. My husband being a huge fan of steaks, made a reservation at the Brooklyn restaurant around a month in advance. But we only managed to get a table for 2 at 9:45pm.... More

Adult son wanted steak for his bd which we tried a couple days prior to this Luger visit but were seriously disappointed. We bit the bullet and went to Peter Luger's w/o a reservation but there when they opened on a Sunday. Even though there were definitely not enough people and more than ample seating we were forced to wait... More

Finaly we managed to eat a "Steak for Two" in Peter Luger. The salads that we had before meat were wonderful. So were french fries. But the steak...it was realy special. I never ate such a good steak, tasty, smooth..Yes, I can say this was the best steak that I ate in my lifetime.

There are so many good reviews of Peter Luger's, and for good reason. I can't add much that's particularly witty, pithy or newly informational. I mean really, a great steak is simply great: not cheap, and served here in a traditional atmosphere complete with kind of surly waiters that – if you’re lucky -- you grow to love. Don't bother...

The food was good. All the servers were older males and they all had a "can't be bothered" type of attitude. I know this is the tradition here, but it was slightly offputting. I will say, however, that they did refill our water and do things relatively timely so even though they had a weird vibe, things got done so... More

The steaks and side dishes live up to the hype! Good service, only drawback is no credit card or checks. It brings you back to the New York of the 1930s, prices high but so is the quality. One of the best in the City or the County.

Excellent food. It is worth the price and the time needed to get there from NY. No credit cards accepted!!! It is quite different from most of the typical american steak houses but really outstanding.

I really like this place for what it is.. A pricey, consistent quality, great service, low key, old school steakhouse. Desserts were good, very traditional and satisfying. The chocolate soufflé is a must, and take note that you have to order it at least twenty minutes in advance. It was a flawless chocolate soufflé, rich but airy and not too... More
