“great steak and gentle manager”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

I went to this place at late time just arriving from Europe and spend 1 night in new York.

They accepted me to arrive afther 10 in the evening even when the place looked ready for closure.
I enjoyed the Steak tartar in combination with the wasabi. The ribeyesteak also was delicious
The manager is costumer minded and will not put you out of the door if you need to wait for a while.
It is not cheap but now and then i guess you should tread yourself some pleaure

“Uncle Jack's Steakhouse”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

We needed a good meal on a rainy night and this was only a few blocks away from our hotel. I had filet mignon which was perfect. Wonderful ambiance with upper end food. $35-$45 for most entrees. Our only complaint was losing one of our umbrellas from the umbrella stand, although they said they would watch it. On the other hand we lost two more the next night. I guess we should just start taking other umbrellas when ours is missing. Anyway, go to this restaurant for an excellent meal!

“Jack is back”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We went to this restaurant on a group on certificate to see if we would like it. The food was very good. Service was efficient, but the restaurant had not ambiance. It was in a very touristy area, which was ok, but something did not feel like I was in a steak house.

“As Willie Degel says, "the best service in the world"”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

As fans of Willie Degel's Restaurant Stakeout, a buddy from work and I traveled 2 1/2 hours to experience "the greatest service in the world" on a Saturday at 6 pm. We had a distinguished, grey haired gentleman with glasses on the 2nd floor. He was professional and attentive. He immediately asked if we had to make a show, and I regret I answered no. The sommelier was also attentive, but not intrusive, and the waiter's assistant continually refilled your water glass when it was half empty. That being said, admitting that we did not have a show to catch was a mistake. The time between appetizers and the main course must have been 1/2 hour. Although my filet was good, I would not call it excellent. The best filet I ever had was at SW Steakhouse in Vegas. I still dream of that steak years later. All in all it was an enjoyable time, but not quite as extraordinary as I expected. The wine I picked, Emblem Cabernet Souvignon, 2011, was an excellent choice, and I thought a good value for the money.

“Great food/Great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We recently had a most wonderful Saturday lunch at the bar, at this most wonderful and welcoming Manhattan gem. Our bartender/server, Ritchie, was most attentive and couldn't do enough to keep us happy. The food was fabulous and the entire experience would bring us back in a New York second!!
