Went for restaurant week. Menu was nice, but portions were TINY. Tuna tartare appetizer was a tease- tasty but tiny. Petite filet was truly petite. Asked the waiter how big it was- said about 6 ounces. No way! no more than 1 1/2 inches square. Nothing to eat. popovers were very good. Table was cramped and very noisy. Could hardly hear people at the table. Won't return. Restaurant week did not do what it should have- did not make me want to return at full price- don't want to return at any price!

No prob with the reservation. We were seated on time , albeit in a somewhat cramped table for our party. Then the hovering began. Fussy and multiple pours of seltzer from old time dispensers. Over and over again. Sheesh, just leave it on the table. The waitress was polite, but not very informative. Some of the side portions were tiny and others substantial. The meat was ok. We spent a lot of $$ and had hoped it would be as good as Peter Luger's...but it was not. Back to Brooklyn where they know meat. Popovers were delish. The pickle dish was incongruous.

I had dinner here tonight. The are very disorganized. Even though I had a reservation, I did not get my table for over 1 hour... I should have left..

Don't bother making a reservation you will wait an hour. The front hostess and host are so obnoxious you would think it was your fault for being on time. This restaurants attitude is bad and is not worth it. No matter how early you come they cannot manage themselves and you have to wait for cruddy food that is overpriced.

I am a confirmed NYC born & raised carnivor. Growing up we went to Peter Lugers, the Old Homestead, Sparks, the Palm... Had a great Sunday brunch at Arlington on April 14; went back for dinner April 21. Porterhouse for two loaded with garlic gloves; I am allergic and specified three times. Replacement steak cold...sent back...a tad lukewarm upon return of a "new" steak. On first round creamed spinach cold...on second round steaming hot. It took three attempts and the steak was still not right. Check came for $206; I ranted and they boiled it down to $53. We left angry and cranky. Would much rather have paid full freight and feasted accordingly. I just don't get it. Have been going to Lugers and Homestead 40 years....never had an issue.

Let me add, my go to place is still Peter Luger's for steak, although the steak here was good as was the salmon, a return visit is questionable only because the standard for steak is Luger's. The restaurant is a N.Y.C. scene for a people watching person. The service was very professional however if you're a big buck spender try Lavo Rest.

Despite having a dinner reservation we waited 30 minutes to be seated with the hostess saying it would just be a few minutes each time we checked in. Everyone at bar had been waiting for their table for ages. Sat down to "eh" sushi for an appetiser. A medium fillet came out rare. Steak sauces were stone cold. Mac and cheese was dry. E
