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.

I had discovered S&W a few years ago in Johannesbourg and really wanted to test the original !
I haven't been disappointed.
The food was excellent and the service fantastic.
Obviously, in this kind of restaurant, the atmosphere is a bit noisy, but it is part of its charm...
I recommend it certainly.

Perfect location, friendly staff, reasonable prices. Cosy tags with the names of famous persons that were guests! You can really find something you would like in different steak cuts. Their sauce in SW original bottle is really tasty and add an overall impression of juicy and fresh steak. Downside is bit longer waiting for your meal, it looks they are either understaffed or management needs an tuning.
Generally, very recommended!

Steak is always great! Seafood banquet for 2 was very good. Huge shrimp, perfect crab and lobster claws. Crab cake was very good. But definitely go for the steak. Best part of the meal. Service very courteous and attentive.

Unbelievably good Sirloin (classic for me & black pepper for my wife! Juicy, perfectly prepared! A fine (albeit expensive) lunch during our visit to NYC.
