“Excellent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Trying to decide on a steakhouse in NY is a difficult choice. Due to the proximity to our theatre that night, we selected Shula's. It was a very good choice. We were promptly seated and our server reviewed the evenings special. We both went with the filet as our mains and lobster bisque as our appetizers. The food was excellent, the service attentive but not intrusive. The overall ambience of the restaurant is formal, yet with football pictures throughout, seems not as pretentious as others.

CanadianGypsies, thank you for writing a nice review, and we'd also like to thank you for choosing to dine with us during your time in New York City. We are very glad to hear our restaurant made for an enjoyable and convenient dining location on the day you went to see your show.

The reason we have various football memorabilia is because our steakhouse is themed after the Miami Dolphins undefeated season in 1972 lead by Coach Don Shula. Just as Coach Shula crafted a legendary and undefeated team, we have mirrored this approach with our unparalleled service and a wide selection of delicious dishes and steaks.

We'll make sure to pass along your kind comments to our waitstaff and culinary team. It's great to know you loved our food and felt satisfied with the level of service you received. We want to thank you for sharing your experience with us and the TripAdvisor community. It really means a lot when guests take the time out of their day to leave a kind review. We hope you realize how much we appreciate it, and know this kind gesture doesn't go unnoticed.

If we can ever do anything to accommodate you in a future visit to our restaurant, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thank you. We hope to see you again!

“Nowhere near as good as we were expecting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

We chose Shula's after reviewing many steak houses on here for our trip to NY. We were disappointed. The service was poor - they were particularly slow to take our order and to clear the plates. Other tables were dealt with before us. The food was not terrible, but seemed very salty and given the price I would have expected excellent or amazing food. The spinach was sloppy and the fries salty and not great. Felt let down especially as this was our last night in New York City. I would expect to have been able to compare this to Goucho's in London where the food is amazing, the service superb and I feel like I am getting value for money every time.

“Our "Shula's" Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

My wife and I both had a delicious bowl of lobster bisque along with a dinner salad that was big enough for two. The meal and service were outstanding. I would highly recommend this facility. We did not have dinner during this visit but have had their steaks while in Florida. If you like steak this is one place to attend.

“Lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Nice place with good service. Good food and good atmosphere. Many restaurants in New York had to much cold aircon, so the food was cold too fast and you could not have a thin fine dress on. Here at Shula it was a comfortable temperature.
