Came here with a group of good friends for a birthday. We were looking for an upscale steak restaurant for the occasion. Was a good meal, but not a special experience. The ambiance is kind of 70’s mod. We were in jackets and easily the most dressed up. Was mostly families and people in jeans and tees. Had a drink when we got there. No beer on tap. Just bottles. Booze list is HUGE otherwise. We’re seated and waited a good 10 minutes before a server came. She told us we had to order everything at once because of a large party that was coming in. I think she realized that statement rubbed us the wrong way and she backed down a bit from that demand. We ordere about every steak on the menu and were generally happy. The Bowery steak is probably the least favorite. For the price it’s the thinnest cut of meat. Definitely go medium rare. It cooks up in a hurry. Bone in everything else was good. The bacon and twice baked are also solid. Although th potato had just as much bacon as potato in it. We left satisfied but it wasn’t the white glove steak house experience we were looking for.

Excellent food! Excellent service! Food was fresh and delicious and our servers were so attentive and friendly! Restaurant was very loud and crowded.
Reason for 4/5 and not 5/5 was ‘loudness’ (often hard to hear each other speak) and cost. Very very $$$$

I read many of the reviews and wasn’t sure how this was going to turn out. It was an excellent meal. Oysters, shrimp, and steak were top notch. Be sure to get the hash brown side! It was a Sunday evening and not overly busy but the service was solid. Ambiance is great. I would certainly recommend to anyone staying in this area of Manhattan. Bread pudding dessert was also a nice ending. Expensive meal but worth it in my opinion.

The service? Impeccable. Both at the bar and in the dining room.

The meats and wines? Expensive but very tasty.

Without the right swagger and a thick wallet you might feel out of place here. A suave and debonair joint with good grub to match; just thought it was a bit overpriced.

Can’t say enough about the waitstaff though - they were tremendous - made the experience.
