We had 9 pm reservations for my friends 37th birthday. We spent well over 400$ on drinks before we were seated (we were there with 9 people).

The main course took over 1 hour from
The appetizers to come out. Most people that sat after us were done with their dinner by the time we sat down. We were not served until a little after 11:40pm. This became a much later dinner than we had anticipated.

We tried to break the bill across 5 credit cards. When everyone added he math up, there was an extra 7% tacked on “by accident” by the server. He acknowledged it as an accident, but it didn’t sit well weigh everyone who were now late for table reservations for a club in midtown

The food fairly compensated for the not so good service. 3.5 total at best today. Drinks are $$$$ or about 19-22$ top shelf drink. 180$ a person at the table.

We met some friends here that were visiting the city from out of town. We were originally going to be sat on the rooftop, but after seeing the lack of ambiance and hearing the ridiculously loud music, we chose to say on the third floor. The ambiance was better on the third floor.. but, shockingly still extremely loud even though we were only 1 of 2 tables dining. Our server was very friendly, but definitely took his time.. with EVERYTHING. We sat at 8:30, ordered at 9:10 and received our food at 10:00p.m. Luckily, we were enjoying each other’s company so, time went fast. The food was average.. some steaks undercooked and some over cooked. After finishing dinner and waiting 30 minutes for our check, we went down to the main floor for some drinks. The DJ was great, and we did get some dancing in. Overall, I would not recommend this place for a family to go for a nice dinner. Its great for a group of friends to enjoy some drinks, loud music and dancing.

We went to the rooftop stk as they have a fine dining restaurant downstairs which would be warmer!
Very slow service was a disappointment, but the food was good enough to keep us happy. Delicious chopped salad to share, then a Tomahawk large enough to share, with a side of jenga fries and a large plate of steamed cauliflower and mashed corn pudding, (mashed and a bit wet, sweetcorn pudding). Was quite enough for us. If only we had our drinks earlier as it was so hot. Good luck getting any swrvice if you do go there!

So this is an updated review of my previous one. On the first attempt to patronize this establishment, I had a horrible experience and it was honestly one of the worse. However, the manager assured me that it was a one-off incident and not indicative of their brand because I did not even get to try their food.

On the second go-round, I actually got to dine there and it was great. The decor is amazing and very chic, and in terms of the fine dining steakhouses in NYC, this one is up there when it comes to looks. You can tell they paid attention to detail and have gone out of their way to make sure everything is grandiose. From the arches in the seating to the ivory tusks on the wall (I sincerely hope they were fake), it just screams of opulence in a way, as if you need money to dine there and yes, you do.

The food here is pretty good, which was pleasantly surprising given that it has a clubby reputation more than anything. From their steak to their chicken to their deserts, they do a great job on everything, even the drinks, which at first seem pricey but pack quite a punch so it makes it all worth it. The food is pricey, but you should not expect anything less from a top-draw place like this.

The atmosphere is filled with loud music and a showy clientele who strut around in red bottoms and blazers, so just a heads up in terms of the presentation. There were others dressed down but for the most part it is a dressy affair and the room reflects that, from the managers down to the wait staff. I'm looking forward to going back and I honestly do want to extend a thank you to Kevin and his team for reaching out and making sure I had a better experience than my initial one, which is not something I would expect from such an establishment at all.
