“5 Star Prices. That's about it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Im surprised by all the other reviews. I was not overly impressed by the food or service. There were 3 other tables in the whole place, more staff than customers I would assume, and still the service was not great. It was a long wait for anything. I was also unimpressed with the food. I mean, it was steakhouse OK, but not 5 Star price OK. Not value for money.
Would I rush back? No
Would I eat there again if invited by friends? Probably so.

“Decent place, good service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The service was very courteous and helpful, but I found the food unimpressive, especially considering the rave reviews. Maybe it was a case of getting my hopes up, and it certainly wasn't that the food was "bad", it was just.... ok. I've certainly had better steak for less money, even in doha.

“Good - 3.5 out of 5.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This place was good, but nothing special. The steaks were nice, but nothing to write home about. Service was fine, and the ambiance within the restaurant was ok. On the whole I would say it was pleasant enough, but not so much that I would rush to go back in a hurry.

“Best Steak in Doha?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

How about the best steak I have ever had anywhere bar none. I have visited many distant and exotic places during my business travels over the years, and I have enjoyed many excellent meals, from San Francisco to Manila, from New York to London, from Rome to Doha. The steak I ate at the Marriott New York Steakhouse was the best piece of meat I ever bit into. Tender, cooked-to-perfection, melt-in-your-mouth, superb. What can I say...I loved it! And then to be given a choice of cutlery with which to eat the thing...definitely at the top of my "I can't believe I ate the whole thing" list.

“Best Food, Drinks, and Service in Doha”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We love this restaurant. The staff is excellent and remembers our names, drinks and even our favorite meals. We now frequent it weekly and enjoy the "local neighborhood bar" feel we get when we visit. We have introduced it to several friends and they are now regulars as well. They have the best margaritas in Doha! Great steaks as well as fish and tuna. Now that they are open for lunch I will be bringing, clients and friends during the day. The only bad thing is that it is closed on Saturday.
