Description: One of America's most successful restaurants, this New York steakhouse opened in 1977 and has been a hit ever since. It is one of the most trafficked restaurants in New York City and among the most celebrated steakhouses in the world. Specializing in fresh seafood and lobster and assorted steaks and chops, Smith & Wollensky is well recognized for its healthy portions, seasoned service staff and pop Americana ambience. The painted wood exterior is dark forest green trim on sparkling white, with latticework trim. The elegant interior has turn-of-the-century appeal and design elements including shining brass, dark wood accents and polished wood floors. Adjacent to Smith & Wollensky's is Wollensky's Grill. The Grill (entrance on 49th St) is open from 11:30AM till 2:00AM but does not accept reservations.

“Gorgeous steak!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Had a gorgeous meal here!! The staff were brilliant and our waiter was very friendly and helpful. My mum and I shared a beautiful 20oz rib-eye and had the pecan pie for pudding, both were delicious! It is popular with locals for a reason!

“Best steak ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I eat in this lovely restaurant last October after our tour guide told us its where he eats and is one of the best steakhouses in New York soo me and my girlfriend were welcomed by a lovey young girl to the bar while we waited for our table..we then where seated upstairs,I ordered a steak not sure what it was called but was with $50 and it was amazing .... The bread they make is the best I've had ..we had onion rings and mash as sides and everything was perfect.
Only bad thing I can say is it was cold in there so I did ask for them to possibly turn off the air conditioning as it was October and not warm outside atalll well they didn't but no big deal I will go back for sure

“A Great Hunk of Beef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you LOVE a great steak, c'mon over. They got them...consistently. I've never gotten a bad cut or the wrong 'doneness'. Don't forget the delish sides but you are here for the beef and it's the best steak place in the City. Been to the others....and I choose S&W every time. Not inexpensive by a long shot but I think you get what you pay for and when I want a perfect steak....I go to Smith and Wollensky's.
