Me & my husband went to S&W 4 years ago 3 times and had a fantastic steaks there each time. We have since then told all our friends about the steaks there & how fantastic they were! We went there this December 2011 with our friends & they were just as good as we remembered them! & now they are telling their friends about their visit there, so don't be put off by a bad review try there for yourself! Yum!

As a diplomat, I am seeing more of restaurants than I would like to (sometimes), but when I decided to take an important guest to Smith and Wollensky it was the ultimate disappointment. The wine was good, but came five minutes after the food arrived, the steak was ordered 'medium rare', but came well overdone, the side dish was dry and not hot. It was the most expensive disappointment I have had in town so far. There are many better and cheaper alternatives to this place, which is a shame for a restaurant that used to be a Manhattan landmark.

I had the filet mignon and it was disappointing. It had absolutely no flavor. The sides were not so appealing either. Don't waste your money.

We got a crappy table, but the place was jam-packed, so it's understandable. The service was good and the food was superb. The steak (Colorado Rib Steak) was truly wonderful and the sides were also very good. We are happy that we went!

I was born and raised in NY but have lived in Tokyo the past 25 years. On my infrequent trips to NY I want to eat in at least one "good" NY steakhouse and in this S&W did not disappoint. This was my first visit S&W and the steak was cooked to perfection, med-rare was just that and not overdone, the asparagus were tender and the hash-browns crispy and tasty. Our waiter was friendly and experienced but spoke with a eastern-European accent so thick he was hard to understand, but "dis is New Yoouwk so ya get used ta dat". Due to our limited budget we declined the wine and dessert menus and opted instead for coffee and espresso. Even so, dinner for two was well over $100, easily the priciest steak I've ever had, but, when in NY, splurge a little, the experience is worth it.

The steak and lobster are average. The asparagus is subpar, only very top part is tender enough to eat, and costs more than $12. Korean deli can offer much better quality asparagus than they do!

I've been here about a 1/2 dozen times for special occasions. I don't make a fortune, and when I am looking to shell out big $$ for dinner, I expect a lot in return. This is the reason why I have returned here time and time again. Steaks have always been cooked to perfection, excellent wine & top shelf liquor selection, and an excellent staff. Dining with another couple has gotten better tables than when just my wife and me alone.
