Being a Manhattan transplant for the past decade I cherished the "Old New York" trek to the most looking forward to meat, this side of Atlantic. Which I did religiously everytime out-of-towners wanted the best steak New York can offer. And they did come around often. The rituals were invariably similar: they took the first bite, gasped and couldn't believe themselves for re-ordering the second steak for two, or three. Never have we room left for dessert, until yesterday. Yes, I finally found the grace in 'Holy Cow' fudge sundae after such a bland, or was it simply tasteless?, steak. For years I bared the mediocre service, suspiciously washcloth-looking napkins, and cheap liquors, all for a taste of the grail steak I had found, and not found anywhere else. Perhaps yesterday was a simple problem with the 'prime' in USDA prime or the 'dry' in dry-aged, or never mind, I'm unwilling to take more chances getting my ego slapped for dragging friends literally across the river for plain salted steaks.

Best steak i've ever had, I've been there 15-20 times in my life, had 1 bad meal but the last time I went it was excellent. If ya'll dont like it, dont go back; fine with me its more meat for me, more spinach, more schlag, more potatoes, more rolls and less of a wait

My boyfriend and I lived in Brooklyn our entire lives but had never been to Luger's, so I took him for his Birthday. It was exactly what I thought it would be: expensive but delicious food, no-frills decor and excellent but not flowery service. Our waiter was great--He knew what we were going to order before we ordered it, he paid attention to us but did not hover or kiss our butts, and everything was timed perfectly. The steak was perfect, the german fried potatoes were fantastic, and the creamed spinach was so light and delicious. Even if you are stuffed, order the Schlag. Amazing! I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I have been to Peter Lugers about 7 times. About 1 time per year. I have also been one of the loudest proponents of the place. Unfortunately, the last few times I have been there, the meal has not been as good as it used to be. I honestly had a better meal at Ruth Chris recently! The bacon was literally gross the last time I went. The steak, potatoes, and spinich were "pretty good" (they should be great). I will not be going back for a while.

My wife my son and his wife all went Luger's for the first time for a dinner celebration. Having read about the service, we were delightfully surprised to have a very friendly and helpful server - but the food? Incredibly overpriced and not that good - been to better steakhouses in NY - Sparks, Del Friscos to name two. $360 for drinks, two "steaks for two", two sides and two desserts. Sorry - would MUCH rather go to a Cellini's or Convivio for a fraction of the price where you get more than a slab of beef, and not the best beef at that. Will not go back.

its a tradition that i take my elderly mom to peter lugars for her birthday. as usual we went the wait staff could not have been nicer they catered to our every need. i asked not to be near the window as mom might get chilly they put us in the main dining room and everything was fabulous. other than moms birthday we go about 4 times a year for special occasions always treated like a king. i just want to note that we go to the northern blvd location as we live in queens and it is more convienent
