“Good steak but cold reception!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

We had wanted to visit Peter Lugers steak house but unfortunately could not get in at a weeks notice. We decided to try wolfgangs.....we booked a table for 8:00pm and arrived at 07:50, we had a very cold reception, if we hadn't been so hungry we would have walked out! The lady at the front of house was irritated by our 10 minute early arrival, in an abrupt tone she told us to get a drink and would call us when our table was ready.......50 minutes later she called us over, unable to be polite or smile, we were sat in a corner next to the kitchen, which suited us as we were slightly tucked away. Good noisy atmosphere and friendly helpful waiter with lovely food but based on the cold reception which made us feel uncomfortable I would rather spend my time and money at Benjamin's!

“Excellent steaks ... but ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

This place if famous for its steaks and yes they are spectacularly good and worth the visit. Sadly not everything is as good as the steaks. Making a reservation took ages on the phone and when we arrived we didn't feel welcomed. This theme continued as the waiters were rather unfriendly. I would describe it as a touch of arrogance. A simple smile or a friendly word would have been all it takes to turn this place into something fantastic. But the only smile we saw was when the waiter came to clear the table and noted that we weren't able to finish our fries.

“Great old-school steakhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Food was impeccable. My advise is to get there early or book ahead as there were queues out of the door when I went.
Be warned, not cheap, but ok by NY standards.

“special occasion or business”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Outstanding steak. I do Wolfgangs abut 4 times a year, either for a business lunch or a special occasion. Just in for lunch and found their menu now includes some smaller portioned items, which is good. I had the filet minion, and my wife the see bass. Both outstanding. I always also do the onion rings, the best around.

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The porterhouse for two is to die for, as is the bacon appetizer. Very cool room, but a little loud. Warning - you will never be seated on time
