Was passing through and found New York thanks to trip advisor. The food and great and Denise the waitress was amazing. It's definitely worth a visit.

“Good food terrible waitress”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Waitress ignored us from when we sat down. We had to call someone from the bar to take our order. First time I did not even leave a tip. Needs big improvement. Food was good though.

“Best steak in years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Very busy but we dit get a table without a reservation. The atmosphere wasn't great but the food was. Our party all had steaks and they were all excellent. Very tastful and so tender. Lots of chips, sauces and veggies with it too. So not a really healthy meal but a good start for our South African trip. Would go there again but make a reservation!

“Dissapointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

When I was referred to the restaurant, I assumed the fare on offer would be a bit more 'modern'. You are greeted with red suede chairs and the fare is you regular steak house fare in SA. I didn't order a steak but ordered hake with a prawn sauce, Don't.
I was also amazed by the amount of starch you get with your meal and you can't change one starch for a salad without extra costs. The vegetables were your regular cream spinach and pumpkin - not nice.
I really expected more and felt I paid way too much for what I got.
But the service was great.
