    All hype, no bite!

    I live close by and I always see this restaurant FULL of people. So when I wanted to treat myself to a nice steak I figured I'd give this place a try... I SHOULD'VE LISTENED TO THE REVIEWS! It's not bad, but for $35 could the steak please come cooked how I ordered it? And maybe with something more than a couple of string beans. Basically the steak was medium (how I ordered it) in some parts, and totally well done in other parts. Besides that, without the bearnaise sauce, the steak was bland. Save yourself the time and money and head some place else. This is definitely a tourist trap.

    Service? What Service?

    Food is fine for what it is - although overpriced. But during normal dining hours, restaurant not particularly busy, plenty of servers around - nothing. We were flagging servers down constantly trying to get anything from drinks to more water to ketchup. It's a tourist restaurant now and the service shows. No thanks.

    Only Good Experiences Here

    The poor reviews here surprise me. I've been here half a dozen times in the last year and have only had very good experiences. However, I have only been here for lunch. Perhaps dinner is different. But as far as lunch goes, it has all been good. I've ordered their bleu cheese burger several times and it is always delicious and cooked perfectly. Their onion straws should bee illegal because they are so good and addicting. However, I don't understand why they have to serve things on such tiny plates. Everything shows up on it's own tiny plate, barely big enough to hold the food. It's like using dollhouse dishes to serve an adult's meal. I was dubious when ordered their Maryland crabcakes, because most New York restaurants have no idea how to make a good crabcake. They think crabcakes require a pound of bread crumbs. But I have to say the crabcakes I had here were the absolute best I have had outside of Baltimore. I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. I have always had good service as well. If anything, sometimes a little too attentive. The only caveat is that prices are a little on the high side for lunch. They're obviously pricing their menu for an upscale Lincoln Center or business crowd. Too bad. I'd like to go here more.

    Dissapointed

    My coworkers and I came to P.J. Clarke's for a quick lunch, to enjoy some good beer and burgers. Boy, were we in for a disappointment... We waited for over a half an hour for our food to arrive. The manager even came out to apologize for the long wait. But when the food did show up one of us was missing her mushroom and onion toppings (it was later brought out in a tiny bowl), and all of us were generally disappointed. All our burgers were overdone (some of us had asked for medium). The burgers were served on small dessert plates with no room to eat. The buns were soft, mealy buns even worse than McDonald's buns. Plus, the burgers were served without any toppings. No tomato slice, onion slice, or even lettuce. If we would have wanted fries or any sides, we would have had to have ordered them separately. At least our beers were alright, because they could not get those wrong coming from a bottle or a tap. After spending almost two hours in there (it took another half hour just to flag down our waiter for the check) we hustled on out and left a measly tip. I hope they got the gist of our disappointment.

    Disappointing

    Had my second experience here last night, and it was even more disappointing than the first trip (live in the area and I desparately want this place to be good). Overpriced tourist trap basically nails it. Mini burgers were ok at best, the fish and chips was horrible - not crispy in the least and the fish was rather greasy. They did a great job with the space, and I enjoy the atmosphere, but I don't think I'll be returning for the food.

    Not Living Up to its Name - Stay Away

    Burger was a tremendous disappointment, but at least it was far cheaper than what one would expect from the location and environment, at only $8.50. It had zero taste and the bun was like biting into a sand box. Chicken pot pie, however, was tasty and an adequate portion. Side of salad had a distinct onion-y flavor and it was overdressed. You should be forewarned that the restaurant was very, very noisy (on a summer's Tuesday night at 8 PM). Bloody Mary (at $10) was fine and tangy. Overall experience did not live up to our expectations based on legendary PJ Clarkes on Third Avenue (especially the hamburger). There are just so many restaurants to pick in this area why bother with this one. Note: a number of table were having raw clams. Perhaps that is their strong point.

    Excellent Service!

    After reading so many negative reviews, I feel compelled to mention our wonderful experience here! We came for a Saturday brunch for a Lamaze class reunion. Due to rainy weather, we decided at the last minute to come to PJ Clarke's for brunch instead of meeting in the park. Since it was such a last-minute decision, we didn't know how many people would actually show up. My partner and our son and I were the first ones there, and we could only tell the hostess that there would be a group of somewhere between 4-14 adults and 2-7 babies. Despite this vague information, she was really nice and she and some servers set us up downstairs in the roomy area good for big groups. They moved some tables together and when we apologized for not knowing how many people would be exactly meeting us there, they said it was no big deal at all. In the end, there were 9 adults and 5 babies, and eating out with babies can be messy, loud and annoying. Yet the servers were all gracious, patient, polite and helpful with our strollers, getting high chairs, etc. The food was nothing spectacular, just standard brunch fare (omelets, french toast, pancakes), but the prices were average for the upper west side, and the servers were really good about checking on us and getting us drink refills, etc.
