Great steak

I've been going to Peter Luger's for many years, and remember the days when the area was not as trendy as it is now, and you had to park in the lot across the street to make sure your call would still be there after dinner. But the steak was always worth it! We went here on a Sunday afternoon... read more

After countless positive reviews and many food related shows hyping Peter Lugar's we were expecting a first class, positive experience. Instead we got a disappointing let down. The steak was good, not great.......but good. It was tender and flavorful, but not worth $105. My wife and I have much better steaks in Las Vegas, for a bit less. However, two... More

You can not compare the quality of the meat at Peter Lugars. It is just the best of the best. In addition to great steak the sides are amazing. The whole experience of eating at Lugars is old world amazing. A must of any meat lover.

The old world atmosphere coupled with melt in your mouth carnivorous goodness makes this the reigning champ among NY steakhouses. It's an experience one should just not miss.

Went with a party of six on a Saturday evening. Ordered the steak for 2 medium rare, the steak had not much seasoning on it which was fine because i got to taste the quality of the steak. After a couple of pieces, I went for my third piece and I could not believe my eyes!!!!! After cutting the piece... More

We ordered a steak for 2 (porterhouse) medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. The meat melted in my mouth and the flavor was incredible. For appetizers we ordered shrimp cocktail and a blue cheese/bacon salad both of which were delicious! I was a bit surprised though about the steak sauce, it tasted very similar to the shrimp cocktail... More

We've been here 4 times since the beginning of December and it's better every time. Steak, bacon, tomato and onion, creamed spinach. Don't even talk about the dessert. We love it here. You MUST go.

I am not a steak eater, but enjoyed the fish here, and a very thick cut of bacon. It is definitely very old world, and appealing only to the American born. And an interesting spectacle to the rest of us. But don't turn an opportunity to visit it if you are like me.

Almost a religious experience. After all these years steaks are still cooked to perfection which is hard to compete, making the trip across the bridge rewarding as ever
