Visiting NYC for the weekend with my wife we noticed that the only similarity between the economies of NYC and anywhere else in the US is the use of the US dollar. They use this currency completely differently than the rest of the country. Where else is a side of mediocre fries nine dollars? A 3 inch dish of overly sweetened sweet potatoes eight dollars. We had both the Rack of Lamb and the Hangar steak. Both dishes were very good - no complaints about the food. Unfortunately I am not a banker/broker/attorney so I do not try to impress those around me by spending 250 on a 45 dollar bottle of wine. Some would say I should not go to these restaurants if I can not handle the prices, but why should anyone?? I might pay exorbitant prices if the food and the atmosphere were phenomenal - but they weren't .

Incredible experience! Every dish that came out was better than the next. The waiter was incredibly friendly and the food was absolutely to die for! Try the tuna appetizer...best I've had! The popvers, filet, and dessert were so delicious!!! Can't wait to go back.

Host being obnoxious and not the smiling type ( thought they disappeared in the 80ies...). Loud place : got a headache. But we went for the food: OK, good, no more, no less...but we can be picky with all these other excellent steakhouses in NYC...

I went here recently with a friend for what will, hopefully, be my first and last visit. The food was good, but no better than many other restaurants I visit regularly. The noise level was nothing short of incredible, and the service was average to below average. All in all, this has the feeling of a place where business people take large groups of out of town visitors. That is precisely the kind of place that I prefer not to visit, since I live in the area and have plenty of more enjoyable options to choose from--on every level.

Do not go here expecting to talk. Screechingly loud; tight tables .... pretty place, delicious steak ... if you can get a side booth it might be better ... Sides small and disappointing ...

Unlike previous reviews, the service was probably the best part of my dining experience. A party of four was promptly greeted by the waiter staff. Water and cocktails were quickly served. Pate with toasted bread followed. Fresh out of the oven single serving buns were served. They were very good. We all ordered steaks. Three fillet mignons and one NY Strip Steak. Two were cooked fine. One filled mignon, ordered well done, was served medium. I ordered the Strip steak medium, and it came close to rare. Considering the prices and the steak being the highlight of the meal, I would have expected the cooks to get it right. It was most disappointing. Not being fond of sending food back, I tried my best and nibbled the steak as much as I could. Had they cooked the steaks right, it would have been a nice experience.

Arrived on a Thursday evening... bar was completely packed and restaurant is very loud, however we were seated at a wonderful circular table in the back, probably the quietest and largest table in the dining room (request it if you are a party of 4 or more!) The menu was more expansive than other steak houses I've been to, with an ample number of specials and a great variety of sides. The shrimp cocktail and oysters were first-rate (huge shrimp!) And now for the steaks - at our table we each loved our individual choices - Porterhouse for 2 (the best!), NY Strip (perfect) and filet mignon (good - but go for the strip or porterhouse instead for more flavor.) If you have room for dessert- apple crumble came straight from the oven (great!)... I was too full to enjoy any of the other desserts at our table! Service was fine- not wonderful but not bad by any means! Not the greatest ambiance for a special occasion (loud and weird 90s music blasting), but great for a dinner on an expense account or with a group of friends. Go for the steak, you won't be sorry!
