Had an incredible burger- one of the best in the city! And the loaded wedge salad was awesome too! Decent service, enjoyable banter with the waitstaff at the bar. Later in the week, went back for a delicious, juicy ribeye. Perfect!

If you are a carnivore, you will love this place. The steaks are amazing, and they were prepared exactly as we ordered. The service is friendly and professional and the atmosphere was festive. It is quite loud in the restaurant, so be prepared to speak up to be heard. We ordered a variety of steaks and seafood, ranging from the... More

Tables really squashed together so when anyone goes past there body parts touch the table. Waited 45 minutes for the food which was cold and the $54 steak was full of fat. I aware that rib steak has a nice vein of fat through it but this was to much... the manager was obnoxious when I brought this to his... More

Ladies and Gents, hands down, this is the best steakhouse in NYC. Not to ne missed is the onion soup and primerib. Honestly, everything is absolutely outrageous (in a very good way).

Very tender steaks. Delicious sides- the lobster mac and cheese and the potato pancake are well worth trying. We were seated promptly on a busy Saturday night and service was friendly, attentive and... More

If you're the type of person that likes all that above yourself stuff then you'll love it here. And I hope you have a good time. If you aren't you'll hate it, we came in here looking to have a really nice dinner and were really disappointed. (The food around us looked awesome) Got reluctantly seated and then the service...
