Peter Luger Steak House
Posted by Anonymous on 07/04/2009
Have been to Peter Luger a few times and it's gotten worse and worse. The porterhouse is fatty and greasy and pretty tough, even medium rare. It's just not worth it anymore...the service is poor and the atmosphere is pathetic - filled with clueless tourists in tshirts, shorts and fanny packs asking about the menu and getting shocked at the prices and the cash only policy. Won't be back...ever again.

Say whatever you want, yes its horstoic and a tourist must-go, but if you're a resident of NYC and not going out to dinner with your 60yo uncle who actually remembers when this place was amazing, its a waste of time. So many places (del friscos, aj maxwell, wolfgangs) have considerably better (at a minimum equal) steak and uncomparable service. peter luger's should spend some money on english classes and perhaps teach service with a smile, but they apparently dont care. the only reason i go is due to the corporate card and if it wasnt the case, i would never return.. unless i didnt have to talk to any workers and my meal would magically appear. thanks, sorry for the rant but the last 3 times have gotten worse each time

Their steaks are just okay, nothing to write home about.

My mother has been going to PL since she was a child in the 1920's. For the past 20 years we take her there every year for her Birthday. I take her with my daughter and her husband. The steak is the best in town as are the sides. We always have the holy cow sunday and everyone digs in. I hope that PL will continue to be a family tradition with my grandchildren, someday!!

I celebrate my son's birthday every year at Lugers. I can't wait as he was born in June. Every year we say that Luger's can't be that much better than all the steak houses in NYC. Never fails everytime we go to Lugers the Porterhouse is simply astonishingly good. Crisp edges, juicy, with amazing flavor. Its the best by a large margin. Sides are also top totch. The rolls are great too. And dont forget to share a holy cow ice cream sunday. The decor is original and sparce. The waiters are pros and they dont BS. If you want the best steak dinner in the world go to Lugers in Brooklyn. PS I have been to Argentina and Lugers is better

i recently had lunch with a friend (also a chef) at PL. maybe i expected to much since im a chef. i like the place, very German style...service also ok (only man though). steak and burger unfortunately not so much. we asked for med rare and got rare, both steak and burger! i know my temperatures...steak had a lot of surrounding fat, but it was not nicely marbled at all. food was just ok. but expensive...

This is by far the best dinner I have ever had, PERIOD. The decor and ambiance is simple and old towne, which is perfect because it does not take any attention off the food. The Steak is nothing short of amazing, it melts in your mouth and leaves you wanting more. The side dishes are amazing as well. For any real steak lover out there you MUST GO TO LUGERS. The menu says it all, the only options for steak, is for how many people you are feeding, Steak for 2, 3 , or 4. THIS IS THE BEST STEAK PLACE IN NYC (yes that includes all 5 boroughs)
