the posts describing the lack of ambience and service should be omitted. they're irrelevant. this place is all about the steak (the porterhouse. NOT the filet mignon) also, the peter luger in Great Neck is the exact same place as the one in Brooklyn, so let's stop complaining a/b the trip to Bklyn.

seriously this place is not for high maintenance people. leave your notions of proper service in manhattan. if you prefer not to be fussed over, this is your place. Nothing fussy about this joint and thats what makes it great. Steak is killer of course.

the steak was good, everything else average. the atmosphere was not great and I felt like I was being waited on by a used car salesman. once was enough.

Waiter refused to order me a steak for one and insisted on my sharing a 'porterhouse for two' with my boyfriend. Steak arrived out cut into pieces. Looked suspiciously like leftovers. Meat itself was mediocre. Have had better elsewhere. Also the filet mignon had obviously been surgically removed.

I took out a bunch of cash and took the trip to BK with great expectations. I left feeling cheated. The steak is good, but no better than other places in manhattan. The sides are not memorable, the place is rundown, and the servers are rude. What is the big draw? I will not be back.

We liked the steaks although we have had better ones in not so popular places. The service was fine until when we were almost finishing they told us to change to another table because they needed ours to set up a big party (they did not ask us as a favor but as a mandatory). They cleaned our table immediately taking out even the dessert we were eating at that moment. I complained about that and the maitre seemed to be even laughing (probably because I am a young woman and not a man in suit or similar). This is not a way to treat anyone. I had never had such a back experience in a restaurant in NY.

Just went there for my husband's 25th b-day and the steak was incredible. I've been to Peter Luger's in Great Neck and am no stranger to steak but the food here was definitely extraordinary. The restaurant's sauce is amazing and our steak was perfect. The only complaint is that the restaurant itself almost feels like a lodge in the mountains. I understand the old school and understated they're going for but I think it's time for an update. The service was good though certainly not superior and the waiting area can stand to be more organized.
