    After dining at some of the other steak houses (Mortons, Ruth's Chris, etc) we figured we should try this, and what we found was we should have stayed with what we already knew and loved. The food was far below comparable steakhouses. The Smith and Wollensky salad was worse than what you can get out of a bag in the supermarket. The meat was a decent size, but was bland and my medium rare was almost completely well done. I say for the price, and if you want real quality at a place where the waiters aren't horrible, go to another steak house.

    Still the best steak in NYC, hands down. Eat your heart out, Sparks!

    Still a treat but average service

    A relative upstart in the world of nyc steakhouses, this place still packs a wallop as a crowd pleaser. Situated at the corner of 3rd Ave and 49th St, you cannot possibly miss the green and white colored building where steaks should be an ideal choice for a meal. As you walk into this establishment, you'll notice the predominately male decor of wood panelling floors and the dining area which reminds you of a good ole boys country club and sparse decorations. My understanding is that most waiters here are lifetime S&W employees which is why they have weathered looks on their faces as well as non-attentive attitudes towards service. If you can withstand the average service then treat yourself to their meat offerings. The menus are simple to read and encased in a wooden picture frame. If you order steaks then you will be given one of the most comfortable thick handled steak knives to carve up your meats. The steaks are quite an expensive treat but the quality justifies the price. I recommend the sirloin which was cooked to my liking of medium-well. The steak was juicy and very satisfying to the taste. My wife ordered the filet mignon butterflied and cooked medium-well which came out to her liking as well. Her steak was tender and quite succulent to the taste. If you still have room for desserts then be sure to try their hot deep dish apple pie with vanilla sauce. When everything was all said and done the waiter delivered our bill and couldn't wait for us to leave to divvy up the spoils of his tips.

    Good Steak-Grumpy Waiters

    A great steakhouse scene...senile old men with "what can you do for me attitudes" scurrying about with sizzling steaks and pricey extras. If you buy high quality beef, prime Iowa corn-fed beef and you don't screw it up when you cook it, you have a great start to a succesful steakhouse. Is it a grab your ankles type place when the bill arrives? Absolutely, and as soon as that tip is written on your receipt, Igor will be hovering to see if he got what he thinks he is worth. Back off my fuzzy little friend, where were you when I needed something?

    Great Food

    I love this food, but in response to the first review, how can the food be out of this world? If it was out of this world, you wouldn't be able to taste it. What world was it from? How can I get to the other world? Bad analogy. You should say, its the best food in this world! Cause it is.

    My favorite Steakhouse in the City

    Excellent steak, better than all the other steak houses like the Palm, Mortons's, 21 Club etc. Prime ribs are out of this world.
