Smith & Wollensky
Posted by RobNEve on 05/10/2007
We visited NYC in 2005 and Smith & Wollensky was recommended to us. So when we returned in Apr 2007 for a birthday treat, we decided on there was only one place we could go. Husband loves steaks so it was the obvious choice. I prefer fish so I had a shrimp starter and crab cakes and he had the pea soup and a T-bone special. We had one beer, one glass of wine and two coffees and the bill was $186 without tip! It was vastly overpriced but because it was a special occasion, we justified it. Best thing about our experience was the staff! They were truly friendly.

Completely overrated. Filet was good, but all else was extremely average. Service was completely rushed. Salads arived before the bread. House dressing was overwhelmingly horeradish-y. Finally, the atmosphere was akward. Brightly lit, zero intimacy, loud crowd. Overrated, average, disappointed.

The service was poor and the food was mediocre. My colleagues and I will never go back again! Overrated! I would rather go elsewhere instead.

Had new years eve dinner.great crowd in for a good time, good atmoshere and friendly waiters looked after us. steaks were great after some really lame food at other nyc eateries.could be cheaper and upstairs decor pretty basic for an upscale restaurant

Prices for steakhouses in New York City are truly absurd, and this place is no exception. There is no reason whatsover for a New York strip steak to cost $45, none at all. I had one last night and it was merely good, nothing more. For over $40, it should be GREAT. Steakhouses think that they can overcharge you just because of the portion size...and they're right. Fools like me and you keep paying for it. But not anymore. For this type of money (the meal for 2, with 2 glasses of wine each, came to $200), I should be blown off my feet. I wasn't.

We ate at the Grill, maybe the restaurant is better but we ordered the Fillet and lemon pepper chicken, I asked for the fillet Med/Well, it came out over cooked, tough and fatty. Was really surprised, you get a better Fillet at Capital Grille for the same price. Don't think I'd go back. The chicken was good though and the bar staff friendly

To start, the service was horrible - Did not bring us our starters, AND still charged us for them. Had to ask 3 times for water. Food was very overpriced - would have been ok if it was half the price, but not good enough for what they charged. Overall - a big mistake!
