Grand restaurant with a still atmosphere. Me and my family went for out for dinner Friday night. It was really busy but the waiters was quick to seat us and take our order for drinks. The wine was warm with no ice buckets on the table. We all ordered rump steak but was really disappointed when it was served with... More

We were a party of seven guests and had booked a table. Four guests opted for meat dishes for which the restaurant is renowned, and three opted for seafood. Opinions on the dishes ranged from good to okay. The service was a let down. Wine bottles were placed on the table but not decanted by the waitron. The white wine... More

The New York steak house is a bit of high end dining in a simple Free State town and I think they do it well. It is white linen table cloths and proper waiters with hostesses that seat guets , so all in all creates the impression of fine dining. The steaks and side orders were excellent and most of... More

We visited this restaurant recently and whilst clean and relatively nice ambience the food was very average. We ordered mainly meat dishes as we were told the steaks were good, but sadly they were really average quality. Two of us ordered rumps but received sirloin which took some stern words to convince the waiter that they'd cooked the incorrect cut.... More

Not only was the steak extremely well done, but the vegetables with it was tasty and tasted homemade. Thank you so much for the friendly service and great food.

Good ambience, great service by Lydia. A lovely, friendly young lady. My kingklip was grilled to perfection! Easily the best I've ever tasted. Veggies and chips were top quality. Everything was tasty and fabulous!!

A very pleasant internal environment but with no view outside. They serve a wide range of well presented and well cooked cuisine, not obviously American so I'm not sure why its called New York. Pleasant and efficient service and a very reasonable price - 8 drinks, mains & desserts for 1,500 ZAR (£100). I would cheerfully go again. Warning! When... More
