Well, had the Porterhouse Steak for two Medium rare; it was the most soft and tender meat I ever had. Focus at Peter Luger is on the meat so don't expect a nicely decorated restaurant. The interior is more similar to a German beer hall - nothing special. But the steaks are just PERFECT - there are no words for this piece of meat. Delicious!!!

People said this was a must-do. We were not disappointed, BUT for us (we live in France where steak is pretty important too!) it was just a very good steak, with perfect home-cooked chips (fries).

The service was not at all surly (as some have said), and very amusing and friendly.

We ordered a rib-steak to share (which was a good size - 450g (meant for one!). The meat was a little light in colour, and a bit light on flavour (perhaps it's the hanging), but still perfectly cooked and easy to cut. My criticism would be that they seemed to drench it in butter/fat to (i guess) make it more tasty - not necessary; in France i would've taken some mustard.

Anyway, worth a visit (along with all the other foreign tourists!)

I've been going to this restaurant for many years....it was good but a little disappointing. Not as good as in years gone by and very rude service!

Me and my wife got the porterhouse stake and a bottle of the Peter Luger house wine. Loved it. The meat was excellent and the wine complemented it very well. The service and ambiance did not quite match the food quality and the price in my opinion, but the quality of the steak more than compensated.

We visited this steakhouse on the 29th December having made a booking several months ago. The food was exceptional and the waiters extremely attentive. However the Bartender marred the evening we had ordered drinks at the bar he threw the bar tab at us when we wanted to settle the bar tab he was not around so we took the bar tab with us to the table with the intention of paying the bar bill when we settled the food tab. After an hour or so the Bar tender came to our table and was extremely rude accusing us of trying to leave without paying which was defiantly not our intention. A scene was made we settled the bar tab and when he returned with the change he threw it on the table. His attitude really spoilt the evening for us all. Be warned the restaurant does not accept Uk Debit Cards or Credit Cards only Cash.
