This was a return visit from a great experience almost 10 years ago...I remembered eating here one time, so we went here for Christmas lunch...lobster bisque was not very good...order jumbo shrimp appetizer and only got 3 for $18...very surprised by that...I would have thought there would have been at least 5 or 6. Steaks were good...5 cheese mac was good...sweet potato casserole was good...service was good...the atmosphere is really good if you are looking for that too.

My husband and I visited NYC in Sept. 2013. We decided to try this restaurant based on the fact that we love watching the tv show with Willy Degel! The atmosphere was exactly what we expected from an upscale New York steakhouse. The service was top-notch. We had an older gentleman for a waiter. He knew the wine list, made recommendations on the menu and took great care of us. He always seemed to come to the table at exactly the right moment. We started off with a seafood platter for an appetizer and it was so fresh. I had the short ribs for dinner and my husband had the Prime Rib Chop. We loved everything about the food, the service and the atmosphere. We are planning a trip back to NYC in March 2014 and are hoping to go here again.

My family and I went to Uncle Jack's for my son's 13th birthday. He loves steak, and enjoys Willie Degel on Restaurant Stakeout. There are only positive things to say about this experience. I will start with the service, which separates the excellent from the best. On his show, Mr. Degel emphasizes service as the key to success. The staff at this Midtown location exemplifies the best in class. My son has a severe nut allergy, and the staff at Uncle Jack's handled it expertly from the time of reservation through desert. I was called in the afternoon to discuss dinner and any concerns; when we arrived, we were reassured about menu items; during service, the entire team was sensitive to our needs. My son's birthday was noted by the entire team in a friendly, professional manner--he felt very special. Our head waiter and his team offered terrific advice on the menu, and executed service superbly. Now for the food. Absolutely delicious steak, and cooked as ordered. M10 year old daughter said it was "heavenly", and I agree. My kids split a filet, and it was sliced at their request. I enjoyed a very well grilled bone in filet--juicy and tender, more like a NY strip. The bacon appetizer was great, but may be too spicy for some people. Side dishes were also finely prepared; we had spinach, steak fries, and regular french fries. A standout is the mac and cheese; pasta perfectly cooked and the cheese mixture flavorful and complex--not your traditional mac. The wine list was extensive, and had some very reasonably priced selections. After dinner drinks were also reasonable. Deserts were also terrific. The chef made my son a nut free chocolate tort cake and put a candle on it. This was only the second restaurant desert he's ever had, and he loved every bite. A big thank you to the GM, Mark, and his entire team for making our evening. If you are in Manhattan for a family trip, business dinner, or date night, do yourself a favor and enjoy Uncle Jack's. Willie--you should be proud of your team over there, whether you're watching them or not.

Really friendly staff, very informative about the menu, we 1st visited from the uk in Dec 2012 and went in as passing. However in nov 2013 when we returned we had to go back and the steaks were as good as the first time.
