We traveled to NYC to celebrate our Anniversary, and my husband wanted to treat me to a steak dinner as well. We live in Baltimore, so we arranged a trip up for a weekend, and I selected this restaurant as I saw no bad reviews. We both agree this was the best meal we have ever had. It was expensive, but I have actually paid more and gotten much less quality and quantity. Our meal started with complimentary lobster ravioli- truly exquisite in a white cream sauce with asparagus tips. Then our dinner, I had a dry aged T-bone, which was perfectly cooked as per my order, and my husband had the filet mignon, also perfectly cooked. We had creamed spinach and a baked potato as our sides. The creamed spinach was extremely garlicky but very silky and good. The potato was huge. They then brought us a complimentary dessert sampler, then an anniversary dessert complete with a candle. The waiters were excellent, and the owner was so gracious and kind, he came to our table several times and thanked us for coming. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We've been here a few times. The place looks great. The appetizers are fine but I wasn't wild with the steak tartare. Steaks are great. Sides are very good. Prices are reasonable. Upstairs looks nice but my wife likes downstairs so we stay there. Service is friendly and very good.

my boyfriend and I have over 30 years of restaurant experience between the two of us so we are a bit critical and hard to impress... but Club A is one of our favorite places. The food is excellent, the portions are generous, the atmosphere is more sophisticated than the many manly steakhouses in NYC, and the prices are more than reasonable considering the quality and portions. We highly recommend the filet, lobster ravioli, and the crab cakes are the best we've found. plus most times we are there something complimentary is brought to the table even though they don't know we are regulars- it always makes us feel welcome!

A steakhouse with a bright future. Steaks are prepared right, atmosphere is just right and the set up of the place offers a little of everything. Nice little bar as you walk in with a very pleasant young lady working the bar, off to the right is the main dining area dimly lit with a fire place. I've had the pleasure of experiencing the upstairs dining area as well which also has a bar. Jazz music usually plays to complete the feel to this place. The host is a gentleman and makes you feel welcome. Nice steakhouse, and a nice place to bring a date.

Warm red wine was how we started - cool idea with all the Reidel Decanters,...but the wine didn't cool down and/or "open up," until an hour after it was opened! The steak was fatty and not cooked properly. The environment is def. old school and very cool - but even the appetizers and sides sucked,...the wait-staff was very cool,...it just seems like the chef needs to go asap to save face in what could be a timeless concept of a steakhouse,...or at least re-train the guy.

My girlfriend and I attended this restaurant with the Living Social discount package for $70 for 2 people. With that price, it was amazing. Had I paid full price, I would have been extremely disappointed. We had steak tartare and thick cut bacon for our appetizers. Both tasted amazing. However, there was a sizable piece of plastic in the salad next to the steak tartare. The restuarant replaced the dish immediately, but never appologized and explained it as "That kind of thing just happens," which maybe it does, but not at this level of restaurant. For the entrees, we had the salmon and osso buco. Again, both were amazing, but with a couple misses to go with it. The risotto on the side of the osso buco was extremely inconsistant. Some grains were uncooked, others were cooked perfectly. About half of the risotto was significantly undercooked. For the sides, we had creamed spinach and macaroni and cheese. My girlfriend enjoyed both. The waiter failed to mention to me that the macaroni and cheese had a prominent flavor of truffle oil, even after i went through my order with him, explaining that I hate mushrooms. I asked one by one on my dishes if they had mushrooms in it, and he assured me they did not. While a truffle isnt exactly a mushroom, a warning would have been nice, considering this was a high end restaurant. Both desserts were above average, but nothing too spectactular. Also, about halfway through the meal, they started playing rock music very loudly. It was very out of place and ruined the atmosphere. Two of the three parties that were left complained about the music and nothing was done to change it or lower the volume. The waiter's explaination was "They just do that sometimes, I don't know why, at least its good music". Overall, this restaurant is hard to rate. It had its highs which were great, and its lows which are inexcusable for a restaurant of this caliber, and many more than one simple mistake which can usually be overlooked. If you are paying full price, i'd recommend going somewhere else. For a discount package, this was a great deal.

We enjoyed a perfect evening at Club A last night. Club A revolutionizes the NY steakhouse dining experience with by combining excellent steak and side dishes with a beautiful, quiet atmosphere and friendly, attentive service. Specifically the steak and sauces were ideal as were the mac and cheese, sprouts and hash browns as side dishes. I would love to find something critical to say---but I cannot. Rave review all the way around.
