Peter Luger Steak House
Posted by David Hart on 11/24/2014
Peter Lugers - I can honestly say you were my worst dining experience in NYC. The service was terrible, our apps came after our steak and strangely enough our sides after that. The steak was fine but to be honest i hate the fact its comes in boiling butter / fat..... Your creamed spinach had no cream, no seasoning and was more like tasteless spinach puree.... the hash brown again zero seasoning and dry. You forgot the baked potato and I'm sorry to say we still requested it, Huge mistake as when it turned up it was luke warm and dry with missing sour cream. We ordered 3 steaks, 1 rare, 1 medium rare & 1 medium and i can honesty say there was ZERO different, all cooked the same, all under seasoned and all covered in boiling fat. I can only guess that your business model has been adapted from a fine restaurant to now one living off its history and ripping off one time visitors and tourists. If anyone fancys a steak try East Hampton Grill/ Hillstone, Keens, The Palm, Red, Prime 112, Quality Meats, BLT Prime any day but please stay away from Peter Lugers... A wasted $187.00 ! and $100 bucks to Uber there and back... O and the place stank of grease & your the only high end restaurant which serves cold break and fridge cold butter. Please try to butter cold bread with solid cold butter. To be fair the Ice Cream Sundae was amazing

If you want the Real Peter Luger experience got to one on Nothern Blvd. on Long Island. I will not go back to Brooklyn ever again most likely. The waiters are rude, hard to find and the tip is included so don't look for that to change. My last experience there was the clincher. Made my group wait for 45 min after reservation time saying they wouldn't seat us until the 4th of 4 arrived?!? This person was held up and when I pressed the receptionist about this policy he said he never said that. really? During this time watching parents in their 70's stand on the wall while walk ins are being seated was strike one after the last 2 times we were at this restaurant were unfavorable. We are seated on the wall wth 2 small tables pushed together, our waiter brought us appetizers..no sauce, by the time he came back the appetizers were long gone..with no sauce...strike 2. The steak comes out warm, not even close to sizzling, its got a "medium" plastic thing on the steak (we asked for medium rare). The waiter looked like a busboy, spoke like one too btw. we can stop at strike 3 there. Don't go here, go to long island, the waiters are first rate , the steak comes out proper and you wont be wondering why the **** I just paid hundreds of dollars for a crap experience.

Yes, Peter Luger's is expensive. Quality and excellence cost money. I have been to other places......they do not compare! Peter Luger's knows how to prepare steak and provide a memorable experience. Although crowded, once you are seated, you are no longer aware of others. Our waiter has always treated us like we are his only customers. 1 jumbo shrimp cocktail, 3 slices bacon, 2 green salads, 2 sliced tomatoes and onions, 1 creamed spinach and porterhouse for 3, medium, sliced and served in its juices with 1 bottle of Chatenauf de Pape and 1 Brooklyn Lager is our typical order, followed by 3 coffees with amaretto and 1 slice of pecan pie with schlag! Yes, expensive, but the most delicious steak and sides ever. A memorable meal we all reminisce and talk about until we return. Not sure about prices of each item, but we usually pay about $150 per person, because we have wine and beer, plus tip. Always generously tip our waiter who does a wonderful service for us. The waiters always make you feel that you are their only table. Friendly and attentive. We have always lingered over coffee and have never been rushed out, no matter how crowded the restaurant is. If you want steak, Peter Luger's is your best choice.

Peter Luger is a bit out of the way but it is a go to destination in the city if you love steak. And they know how to cook steak! Steak is respected here. If you want a charcoal briquete, go elsewhere. It's a nice atmosphere but not fancy. The staff is very attentive. The chocolate mousse layered with freshly whipped cream is the best anywhere. I've dined here for more than 20 years and it's amazing how they maintain their consistency. They keep it simple and they keep it good.

The best I've ever had and I'm from Texas. I still remember Peter Luger's after 30 years ago when I only went once.

While the steaks are good they refuse to cook your steak medium,well,medium rare etc. The steaks come out red not pink all the time. When paying good money for a steak you should have a say in how you want it prepared to your liking.

I've been coming to Peter Luger's in Brooklyn for years and not once has my steak been "average" there is a reason why everyone goes to PL's and its because its the best! All the steaks I've had all around the world none compare. I'm planning my next trip today and happened upon this bogus review.
