Had the fillet (medium) in very established steak house. It's quaint inside and the waiters are very attentive. We didn't book as it was early evening. The steak was simply amazing, soft, full of taste and very easy to eat. Had green beans and fries...More

The best steak! Yes. In a steakhouse you expect to eat steaks, but this one has been different: unique! the best one I've ever eaten in my life. Best than in South Africa or Argentina too. Really excellent!

Had dinner and we both had the steak. It was cooked to perfection. The only downside was that we both felt as though we were being rushed. Other than that, we had a great meal and will definitely visit again.

We ate on the third floor and the whole place was busy. The quality of the food is high and the service matches. Good wine list. Its pricey but I guess it is to be expected in Manhattan.

This is a traditional New York steakhouse that prides itself on service and excellent food and success at both. Started with really well prepared cocktails. Enjoyed oysters and other appetizers followed by mutton chop and porterhouse for the table. All perfectly prepared, but it is...More

Great atmosphere. Very good waiter. Everything was good, but I was expecting more. Had steaks as good or better in many places. If you order a baked potato at other steak houses you get many more condiments. Iceberg wedge salad was blah

Yes. Two of my party drank cocktails and also the red wine was really good. All drinks are sold individually, which does bump up the cost.
