Smith & Wollensky
Posted by Steven on 05/06/2006
I have been to a few new york steakhouses in the past months. This has been by far the most disappointing experience. We were a party of 4 - 2 couples.The steak (porterhouse) was mediocre. The cream of spinach was OK, aparagus was fine. The service was almost non-existent. Wollensky's is way down on the list of best steakhouses. We did enjoy the seafood appetizer, but little else to be desired from this big name steakhouse.

I've been trying many steakhouses but when I went back there I had to say that at the end Smith & Wollensky is the best...

My colleagues and I treat ourselves to S&W a few times a year and we are always fat and happy when we come out. The "Usual": Seafood Appetizer for Two (Unbelievable), Cajun Filet Mignon (mouth watering), Creamed Spinach and Hashbrowns (must-have sides), White Chocolate Mouse filled Chocolate Basket with Raspberry Sauce (sublime). Don't care that its labeled tourist trap - Love that Smith & Wolensky! Can't beat the old-time male wait-staff. Hey, its expensive - by then - I'm Worth it.

The 16 oz. filet has 6 oz of fat and I've had better crab cakes in a cafeteria! We also had a very dry chocolate cake for dessert. Overall, the food is just not good, and I've been here several times- lunch and dinner, but I will not be suckered in to going back!

Food was great from appetizer to dessert. We picked out a bottle of wine and our waiter suggested another bottle and it was an excellent choice. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely go back.
I was completely unsatisfied with the food. $45 for a NY strip steak and thought, because you are steak house with correlation to the price of the steak and the reputation, it must be very good. To my dismay a slab of fat was served on my plate. There was very little meat in it at all and what meat there was happened to be badly undercooked. I ordered it medium and it was rare. Additionally the meat that I did eat was very rough and did not taste good. Service was satisfactory.

I've eaten here numerous times with family and friends and it's always delicious. If you like high quality steak and seafood, then this is one of the city's best. Steak is always prepared perfectly and the quality is excellent. Good sides to choose from including outstanding creamed spinach and hash browns. The Calamari, Jumbo Lump Crabmeat Cocktail, and shellfish are nice starters. It can get busy and quite loud but thats part of the New York Steakhouse experience. Great place for dinner with the family, nights out with the guys before partying, or even latenight snacks since the Grill is open til 2 am everyday. I will come back again and again.
