“Good steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We booked this online from our hotel room. Beware of any place that does not have the prices as this place was really expensive. Had we seen the prices online we would not have booked. Once we were there it was very difficult to just walk out!!
However once we had got over the shock of the prices we decided that hey we are in NYC so why not treat ourselves. I am glad that we did, the food was superb, even the bread was just lovely. I had the chicken breast it was the best I have ever eaten. My friend went the whole way with a steak & that also was divine, she also said that it was the best she has had. If you order a side that is enough for 2-3 people. All in all a lovely meal once we had got over the shock of the price.

“Nice restaurant good steaks but eaten at better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Nice resturant, my waiter had a bit of attitude and wasn't massively helpful. The steaks and food otherwise was good no complaints on that side. Over priced though.

“Wonderful Steak, worth the price to eat here !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Even if you normally do not spend this price range for a meal, when you do,
you will want to choose a Restaurant that will deliver a fine quality meal,
and make you glad you came in, and tell your friends about.

I almost selected Starks steak house because of the history,
but was happy we chose this location to dine on our first New York
trip together.

Good Dinning Experience here! A + Grade.

Thanks Ritchie H.

“Delish!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

This is the third time I have visited this location, and the food just keeps getting better. Everything is great, but in particular I enjoy the Caesar salad and the rib-eye steak. Yum!

Also, I felt the prices were reasonable considering the location and the quality of food.

“Good steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

I went to Ruth Chris before a Broadway show. It is away from the crowds but close to the Broadway theaters. The food was very good. It was restaurant week. I ordered a ribeye steak and split it with my friend. The service was good and the steak was very tasty and tender.
