“Great traditional steak house.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Went with my husband and enjoyed a nice dinner at this traditional NY steakhouse. We enjoyed oysters and shrimp cocktail. All good quality. We shared the porterhouse for two which was delicious. I would recommend the hash brown potatoes as a side. You only need one side for two people. Make a reservation, and see if you can request a nice quiet table. There are often big groups there so if you want a quiet dinner, try to request it.

“a great place, nice atmosphere. If you want something normally priced then, choose another one. This is EXPENSIVE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

The place is overly priced, but is sells not only a good menu with all the classic style steaks, but also a nice experience in a very traditional steakhouse full of history. If you are a tourist and you are not on a strict budget, it does deserve a visit

“One of the best if not the best steakhouse in New York”

Nice and different decor, excellent food and service, and a really good atmosphere. I prefer it to Ruth's Chris or Capital Grille for instance.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

We were group of 6 people and everybody was completely satisfied. Prime rib, porterhouse for 2, fillet mignon ... everything was excellent. The restaurant has nice atmosphere (you can sense the history) and attentive staff.
The place is not cheap but the quality makes it worth every penny they charge.
We would definitely be back ... highly recommended.
