I went to Luger's for a late Friday lunch with 5 other coworkers. Four of them ordered the bacon, four of us split the burger as a starter, and then we ordered two steaks for two (one medium, one medium-rare), the ribsteak, two orders of the creamed spinach and two orders of the German potatoes. The service ranged from surly... More

Booked for a table more than one month in advance but still need to wait for fifteen minutes. Ordered steak (of course). Good but not surprising for Peter Lugar. Dessert (apple strudel and cheesecake) is mediocre. Irish coffee is awesome. Good steakhouse but some others are better.

We were there on July 19, 2016. We had a 4:45 reservation, but we arrived at 4 and were promptly seated. Our waiter was very attentive and informative in regards to the menu. We share a salad and had the steak for 2. We also had the apple strudel for dessert. All in all our meal was on point.

We visited Peter Luger at Brooklyn just a couple of days ago. Hands down the best steak we ever had. Good and quick service.

The size of the steak was only exceeded by it's flavor. Loved the ambiance. It was cozy and just right touch of elegance. The bacon appetizer thick yet crispy; perfectly cooked. Yes I will return.

Johnny Carson apparently said the dinner he had here was the best of his life. Zagat rates it the best steak in NYC for the past 30+ years. So what could be wrong? Well, it's crowded and hard to get a booking. It's also hard to get to. The decor is Bavarian beer hall but cheap and with uncomfortable seats... More

I had been trying to get in to eat there for several years but could never get a reservation. We arrive and had a drink at the Bar then when shown to... More

Made a reservation for 2:45 on a Thursday afternoon to ensure we could grab a burger(only available til 3:30). The place was packed when we arrived and did not wait more than 10 minutes for a table. The wait staff was friendly by NYC standards (though we were in Brooklyn). The burgers were very good, though I would prefer a... More

I was in New York for my mother's funeral and had some extra days to spend in the city so I decided to visit as many bucket list places as possible. I wanted to go to Peter Luger because every time I a Travel Channel show about steakhouses, this place is on the list. Let me first say that steak... More
