Uncle Jacks have a sign by the bar area that says "customer is king". Well not on the night we went.. We had an 8pm reservation and finally got seated at 8.45pm. The girl on the front desk was not the most accommodating. We were however after complaining given full and attentive service, which started with free drinks while awaiting at the bar area.. The waiter had been made aware of the situation and was more than ready to change that bad experience into a good one.. He gots 100% for that.. The food was excellent to say the least and all drinks, dessert and side dishes were taken off the bill.. Thank You the management at Uncle Jacks. We understand that things can go wrong and you sure made our experience do a complete 360..

“Just an OK steakhouse...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

My husband and I stopped here on a Tuesday night without a reservation. They had room and were gracious in seating us. I had a salad, an aged NY strip and shared mashed potatoes and creamed spinach with my husband. He had clams and lamb chops. The clams still had some sand clinging to them - not a pleasant experience. The steak was decent, but nothing special; same for the lamb. Overall, not bad, just not worth the money. There are lots of other more exciting offerings in NYC for good food or even just for steak.

“Amazing steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

The food here is great and they dont overcook. The staff are VERY attentive which can get a little annoying. They explain the menu prior to ordering as sides aren't included. They will also give you a doggy bag when you fail to finish.

I dined on Christmas Eve with my mom while visiting from Tennessee. The restaurant was small and cozy and service was superb! Very accommodating! Would highly recommend.

“Check back... Jack...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

We ate at the 56th Street Uncle Jack's Steakhouse instead of the usual usual Chelsa place where we usually eat and although the food was as good the service at 56th Street was not as good as Chelsa branch. The waiter forgot to take the table's drink order after he sent another waiter to answer a question one of us had about a cocktail...a drink and dessert was forgotten until we told the waiter about it.. and the drink service seems to be very slow ...there seems to be some miscommunication at this branch or perhaps the holiday crowd was too much for the restaurant to handle.. maybe they need more waiters who smile and fewer supervisors to handle the increased volume. but one expects more for such highly touted and $ dining.. the service lapse would not please the owner, Jack, as he would probably be upset with it.
