loved everything about my evening there! Ronny was the perfect server, the food and wine was amazing, but at a price. Expensive but forth it, I highly recommend it.

We chose this steak house on the recommendation of the hotel where we were staying. Service was of the highest quality and we were seated at a lovely table. We ordered wine, steaks and sides. The steak and sides were very generous portions, which we could have easily shared. The elegance and atmosphere were wonderful and made celebrating our 48th... More

This place calls itself “steakhouse”. On my books, it's “forget about it!”. The so-called steak ordered “medium rare” arrived in the form of a shoe sole, obviously fried and put on the grill at the very last moment to get some appearance of grilled. I don't think it had been thawed prior to cooking, since the middle was showing that... More

Needed a good last meal before flying home from a business trip so stopped here. Steak was huge, medium Rib-Eye cooked to perfection and double the size of my UK steak sizes. Great food and service but at a premium. Very expensive, every part of it ($11 for fries)

To be honest when I sat in the table didn't had much expectations as was looking quiet expensive in the centre of Manhattan! But! Mast said that the Rib eye steak is just amazing! Perfect service and good atmosphere! Shame in leaving tomorrow....

It was close to a spa where we had spent time getting pampered during the afternoon. We simply walked across the street to Ben & Jack's for a fabulous dinner to top off the afternoon / early evening. Food was incredible, service was exceptional. I'd go back. You might find it pricey but the service and food value matched !

I really wanted some terrific American steak. We passed this one afternoon, and I noticed the mostly business crew outside, so I knew it wasn't touristy. We had just the main (entrée in American) and a bottle of wine ( Sonoma cab sav) and steak for two. This is basically a t-bone for the Australians. But massive: about 1.2 kg.... More

We decided to go here because it was so close to the Empire State Building! The food was very good and the service was even better! We opted for the 3 course meal and it was worth every penny!

Go here once every two months. Usually sit at the bar and share an entree with my wife. The entrees are very big. The steaks are great, fish not as much. Shellfish (clams and oysters are usually very good). Wine list is a little esoteric and the cellar temperature is a little cold for my liking. The service is good,... More
