The crab cakes and the steaks are king and queen at this always packed Midtown steakhouse. The service truly personal and exceptional. By all means take your pick from the excellent wine list, where even the lower priced bottles are exceptional. If you are visiting New York, make this place your first, last or most important dinner, the restaurant's impressive decor and the view of Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall are sure to immerse you in the over the top feel of the city. Oh, the onion rings are good too.

Arrived on-time for our 8:30 weekday reservation and had to wait 15 minutes before being seated. The restaurant was extremely noisy and filled with i-bankers in their mid-20's to early 40's on company dinners. The staff were efficient and courteous; especially the sommelier, who recommended a fantastic new Australian wine not yet on the wine list. We ordered the prime rib, filet, and porterhouse, all of which were delicious and served in generous portions, if not slightly too salty for my taste. Overall, a great experience, despite the wait and the noise. Be prepared to part with your dough...it goes quickly and easily here!

I wasn't too happy they lost my reservation, but they made room which was really nice. We had party of 9. I loved the atmoshere, the large windows, just the whole feel . The service was great, someone was always there. And the food was marvelous. It was a little strange to actually have them serve you the appetizers and sides which left it to if you didn't get the first round you didn't get because they serve it all out. (You would have to order another serving) The oysters were ok, but the steak was a sight to see. Most of us had the kobe steak special. And it look like a steak out of the Finstones with a big bone sticking out of it on the side. And it was cook as asked, plus they had you check when you got it in case you needed it cook more. I really enjoyed this restaurant.

The steaks here are exceptional, especially the prime ribeye. However, for the price they charge, we expected the service to be superb. For example, we had our menus closed for 10 minutes and noone came, we had to finally flag down someone to take our order (and they were not super busy either for that matter). I ordered a salad and a side of mac&cheese and got sort of a disapproving look from the waitress. I got the feeling that they expect you to order a steak. Other than a couple of annoying things like that, the experience was good.

Went here for July 4th as most restaurants were closed. After a couple of drinks at the bar, we were seated upstairs. The waitress was very helpful and explained the menu and specials completely. We had an incredible bottle of white wine to start and completed with red wine. There were three of us for dinner and the appetizers were the crab cakes (probably the best I ever had), tuna tartar, and the Australian lobster tail for the table. The lobster was amazing, tender, sweet and delicious and the flavor was outstanding with the butter broiled on it. It's very expensive though so just for a splurge. Entrees were two different kinds of steak and red snapper with sticky rice. We had creamed spinach, asparagus and potatoes as sides and for dessert the 7 layer cheese cake and fruit plate. All were excellent and I highly recommend coming here.

Went here based on these reviews. It was a bit loud because we were there right after work. Had a nice time. Our waiter was very personable. The hot bread was delicious. Steak was cooked well, juicy. Staff were very accomodating with our party. Portions were filling but not overly so. Yes it was expensive but we had a good time. It was a great anniversary dinner. Will go back next time we are in town.
