“A very good steakhouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

I have no complaints about the food. It's NYC and a steakhouse has to be good to survive. The steak here is pretty good as is everything else I had. I would go here again. The service was attentive but it was confusing b/c several different servers/bussers/food-runners/captains/etc came to the table. I hate to say it, but it's actually possible to be too attentive bc one staff member doesn't know where our table was with another. So one person takes a drink order and then another comes and asks for our drink order. That happened on a couple other occasions. Overall, a good steakhouse. But service is important for me too.

“Lovely restaurant but i didn't enjoy the food!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

Our hotel staff recommended this restaurant to us. Service was good (a bit pushy) and the surroundings were gorgeous although I did not enjoy the food at all. Not sure why this was but I had meatballs for starters and chicken for main. Both were awful and I hardly touched them. My partner had meatballs and a steak and he really enjoyed his. I would also say this is a very overpriced restaurant (you order a steak expecting it to come with chips or veg) but the steak comes on its own and you have to order sides separately. Staff could also see I didn't eat my meals but never asked why or if we enjoyed.

“Beautiful Steak, great restaurant and bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

We called in to this Steakhouse / Bar for a drink, and had an enjoyable bar snack with a glass of wine. The atmosphere was great, with a good buzz about the place so we decided to book a table for the following night.

I love steak, and I had to try their Prime Rib Chop (AKA the Fred Flintstone!). 28 ounces of perfectly cooked meat, accompanied by creamed spinach and sautéed asparagus. It was fantastic, and my wife's slightly smaller 10ounce filet mignon was equally perfectly cooked.

The waiter was excellent, and added to the already great evening we had and we would definitely eat here again if we were in New York.

“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

Mark Uncle Jack´s in your map and while you are in the area schedule a lunch or dinner here. Great service and good food in a very nice atmosphere. Salads are great in addition to the steaks and remember to treat yourself with a good wine.
