“The nicest staff in any nyc restaurant with great steaks.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

From the minute we arrived we were welcomed by several of the staff and they were extremely attentive, fun and friendly. The service was faultless and steaks were perfectly seasoned and cooked. The wine was quite pricey but for new york thats commonplace. Best meal of our trip for our daughters birthday. I would say a bit pricey but mouth watering steak so worth it.

“Good last-minute choice pre-theatre”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Our concierge at the London helped us make a last-minute reservation here, although it looked like we didn't really need it by the seating on a Friday night. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was exactly what you'd expect: clubby, loud, dominated by the after-work happy hour crowd. The steak itself was so well-prepared that it didn't need any adornment; the flavor came through just from the cooking. It was lightly seasoned, and the meat really lived up to that treatment.

One further note on atmosphere: we were surprised by the number of families we saw there, given the overall vibe of the place and the prices. At least half the tables on Friday night had children, even very small children, at them. It didn't bother us, but it did surprise us.

“High expectations, didn't deliver”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Did a pre-show dinner here at the recommendation of our concierge. While we were one of the first tables to be seated (5:30 reservations), the service was slow and unattentive. The food was unmemorable, very 'average' and overpriced. Salads were drenched in dressing and mashed potatoes tasted as if they were from a box. Would not return.

“Keep coming back - classic Steakhouse, great personal service”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

A regular visitor here since 2008. Why?.... the food is consistently good, there's always a lively atmosphere and even when crazy busy the staff provide great, personal service. It starts well when Max greets you warmly and gets better from there. I've been back 7 or 8 times and had great experiences every time.

Steaks and chops grilled to perfection, drinks generous, and even the chicken and fish dishes are well prepared. Artichoke salad recommended - to share. The wine list is pretty good, but ask for a recommendation, they often have some specials that are new and worth trying. Special deserts available for birthday, anniversary occasions.

Reservations recommended!

“Good food, noisy environment, pricey”
Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

One of the best steaks I had in NYC. And also huge. The restaurant is noisy and the prices are on the higer end of the scale. On the experience side, we were suprised not to be rushed a bill just after dessert, which seams to be the norm in the city.
