The bread was cold and butter was hard, steak undercooked and inconsistent with cooking. Looks like they marked it on a grill, then tossed it into a high temp oven and burnt it. Inside raw and cold. Poor service, wait staff standing around talking in...groups, not to even ask if we would like anything else, not even another drink. Crab cake was too big for an appetizer and looked like they only mixed pure crab with a lumpy binder. Burrata salad - nothing special about it. I cannot understand the high ratings with this Restuarant when the food was mediocre. Even the hostess was not approachable, barely said two words to us but to fill out the COVID form as we walked in. Usually they greet you pleasantly.More

After over a year away I returned to a place I frequented. The "prime" ribeye is $75. I received the steak it was very tough and tasteless. I spoke to the manager who wanted to replace the steak and I told him as long as...it's not the same kind of steak I just tasted. Gave me a new steak absolutely terrible. I used to just love their steak but never will return. A total ripoffMore

Food and service top notch. Shared the double porterhouse and was in beef heaven! This was our 21st visit. Looking forward to 21 more.

After so many years, it is still one of my favorite steakhouses in NYC. The food and the staff are the best at this location (for some reason, other Wolfgang locations are just not as good in NYC, Hongkong or Tokyo). I like the oysters,...iceberg salad, bacon strip, tomatoes and onions. For the main, Porterhouse medium rare is a requirment. Wine list is big but not cheap. Some good tier 2 american wines at somewhat reasonable price. Some customers think the staff can be surly but I find them fast and professional. The crowd can be rowdy with some asian tourists mixed in. Though Wolfgang is seen as second to Peter Luger, I do not think a trip to Brooklyn is worth it.More

Wolfgang’s is far from a pleasant, relaxing place to spend a lot of money. It attracts a boisterous clientele, bursting with crowds which prefer bellowing at the top of their lungs to conversations and therefore is relentlessly noisy. I loved the texture of the dry-aged...beef – a little crunchy on the outside and tender in the middle – but was underwhelmed by the taste – the surface would have fared better with a more chargrilled twang. Given the food and the noise levels, your meal won’t measure up, and at these prices, these days, you should get more for your money. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…More

Service is great! Prices are expensive bit suitable for the area. Food not only looks amazing but tastes amazing. Worth every penny.

This was my second time dining at this place. First time was quite a few years back and I remembered the bacon and the steaks being really good. This time I wanted to bring my 2 sons to experience NYC steaks. We tried for a...reservation at Luger's, but the timing just didn't work out...so I decided for the next best thing. Overall, they had a wonderful experience. I booked via Opentable for 8pm on Sunday evening. We found the place to be packed. We were seated within 30 seconds of arriving. We were seated next to the kitchen, but we didn't mind. We were treated professionally throughout. Water was served and refilled timely. We never felt rushed. We ordered 1 bacon, porterhouse for 2, and lobster Mac n' cheese, and cream of spinach. The boys thoroughly enjoyed the bacon. It was perfectly cooked and had the right amount of fat. The steak was cooked perfectly medium. The boys were impressed by the presentation and the service. The mac n' cheese was ok, lacking lobster. The cream of spinach did not impress them. I was hoping for a dessert or something for my birthday son, but the waiter just overlooked it. We were full anyways. All in all a wonderful experience. Great atmosphere. Perfect steakhouse experience.More

Main complaint: the noise! So loud. If that doesn’t bother you, this may be your place. The steak is excellent (minus one little bit of the tenderloin side of my T bone) that was mealy and almost rotten tasting. Don’t bother with the creamed spinach....Opt instead for the garlic sautéed spinach. Waiters are charming and efficient. Get the crab cocktail and don’t miss the bacon starter. End with the ice cream sundae and ask for extra hot fudge. Be forewarned, many Happy Birthday table singing and stag parties. Cool space that used to be a private train station.More

I'm a vegetarian, so I wouldn't have picked a steakhouse on my own, but a friend of ours really wanted to try it so we went. The architecture was beautiful, the restaurant was extremely loud and the staff very aloof. Besides the steaks (which the...others enjoyed) four of us shared mashed potato, broccoli, brussel sprouts and chopped salad. They were very good. I also had the cheesecake for dessert and it was delicious. It was an expensive meal but we expected that.More

As I recall - 12oz. Fillet is $64, and Rid- eye $58 (if think). The Porterhouse is a good way to share, but the Fillet (for me anyway) is 'top of the shop'. Yes it is not cheap, but value for money - without question.
