AJ Maxwell's Steakhouse

I work upstairs and have been here many times. The food is always consistent, seasoned to perfection, and the drinks are outrageous. The service can be spotty but after two of their martinis, who cares.

I wasted $300 taking my parents to dinner here for the holdidays. The salads were bland and uninspired. The $20 Tomato and Mozz app. was a joke for the price - small pieces of mediocre mozz with cheap Oil and Vinegar. The steaks were pretty good as they should be for $50 but the service was lousy and the waiter was a phony. We just didn't leave with the satisfaction a $300 meal should give you.

This place is a step below the good steakhouse in NY, and here's why: First, it is just as expensive ($20 apps., $50 steaks). The prices are to be expected but not for what you get. Fried Calamari is the frozen kind - no tentacles is the giveaway, along with mushy breading. Not worth $20. Shrimp Scampi had 3 shrimp and they were overcooked so rubbery. Steaks were good, but not melt-in-your mouth $50-60 steaks. The service is pretty weak for what you pay - they do not crumb the table and the waiter we had is one of those guys you wouldn't trust to return a video for you. Dishes sat for ten minutes after meal, and then it was another ten for the dessert menu. Cream spinach could not touch the decadent versions at other notable steakhouses. Do not go here for real NY steakhouse experience or with clients - you will be embarrassed.

i recently attented the Radio City Christmas spectacular on a tuesday nite, are car was parked steps down to AJ maxwells, so we decided to go in and try, we did not have reservations and where taken in without a problem,,,once sat, our attentive waiter, busser, came with the bread, water, utensils for watever we where going to eat, it was like clockwork.anyway the place was buzzing, not a morbid inviroment , the food was great, the portions where amazing, the bordeaux wine was phenomenom, this place is where to dine, leave ur hangups at home and relax,,,like arnold said "i'll be back"

I recently dined at aj maxwells and i felt compelled to write a review because my husband and I had such a lovely experience. Than after reading the rest of these reviews I could not understand why the rest were so poor. Seems like most of these people were restaurant week diners, that explains it. they want everything for nothing and are impossible to satisfy. Well all i know is I ordered a rib eye and it was 32 oz!! Now that was worth the 50 dollars. I guess what happens is that some people can not afford to eat at these high end places to begin with, so they have to look for the flaws in everything. Anyway back to my experience. I had a great server, older gentleman with an accent. Very charming and funny. Drinks were very large and worth it. Follwed by a show after. The entire evening was very special and this establishment had alot to do with it. Thanks very much!

Went to this restaurant because my son gave us a $50.00 off coupon. What a mistake! Baked potato was cold. Sour creme in metal cup was frozen. Steak was OK but not worth $45.oo. Probably one of the worst dining experiences in my 59 years. And this was my Birthday! Service bad. They included gratuity in check so I couldn't give the proper tip. Go somewhere else after the theater, not like us.

We went for lunch and they didn't give us the price fix menus. We had to ask for them which we should not have done. They never gave us a lunch menu with steak sandwich or burger, so we went with PF. The ONLY app is a green salad. It was a sad sight when it arrived. The steak was not aged or tasty, but instead a small shell you would buy in the grocery store and make at home. Cheesecake was good but they giv you a joke sliver. There is no value in the PF lunch.
