Sparks Steak House
Posted by Foodpro on 10/13/2006
The place has become like a high school cafeteria, only louder. Plus, it now seems like all this place cares about is getting the most people in and out, with little regard for making the customer feel appreciated. Other annoyances include, teeny but expensive drinks, no dress code (they'll let any slob in even wearing torn jeans and a tee shirt), and pretty much an indifferent attitude on the part of the wait staff and captains. Once a great steakhouse, now just a hustle.

8 out of 10 of us had steak, some rare, medium rare & well done (god forbid). all the orders did not come out they way we wanted it prepared except the well done, so yeah "well done" for that but poor cooking on the others. BUT, I chose the 3lb lobster & it was prepared to perfection! I also had shrimp coctail - jumbos!! The sides I avoid so not as to get filled up. Svc tho is poor. took forever & 20 min. to get our spirited drinks. Appetizers came out fast but the steaks were poorly delivered. Lucky we were on expense account!

I can't help but laugh at people who complain about the small portions. Have they checked the price of beef these days? To those who proclaim that there are better steaks elsewhere - I only found Peter Luger to have better beef. Also, Sparks has very good fish for those in the group who do not want red meat. A member of my party recently had the king salmon, which was very fresh and cooked just right. I've eaten here four or five times this year and have not been dissappointed once.

but their 2 1/2 lobsters were prepared to perfection (broke the bank but on client entertainment!). the steaks are poor. juicy yes but not tender, I think poor cut of beef I'd say. everything was overpriced tho the lobsters were worth it as 3 of us devoured our meal. the other 5 had steak from rare to medium, all were not happy. save your biz expense go elsewhere!

The selection of steaks is limited, they don't offer a porterhouse or t-bone, which is the signature steak in many other restaurants. The service was slow even though the restaurant was only marginally full at 9:30 on a Friday night. The sliced steak bordelaise was good, but not special. The sides were pedestrian at best. The appetizers were over-priced and over-rated. If the price of a meal is not a factor, then perhaps you'll enjo Sparks more than I did.

Not the best steak I've had and service was very slow. Slighly overpriced in general. Like the decor and the wine list.

I've been to most of the Steakhouses in NYC and their steak is one of the best I've had. They're not the biggest portions, and it is expensive, but taste-wise its awesome. And the sevice was very good.
