Sparks Steak House
Posted by Steak Man on 08/11/2007
The steaks were a bit overcooked, but the worst taste in my mouth was from the service. Our waiter was brusque, unresponsive and ruined the overall experience. Stick with what's worked in the past as opposed to experimenting with Sparks. This place draws more business than it should because it makes for good conversation that a mob boss got shot outside its doors in '85.

Whats so great about this place? The steaks are over salted and not even close to being the best quality beef available. The wine selection is nice and so are the desserts. Thats about it.

I have never seen larger steaks placed in front of me than the 16 oz. of medium rare delicious cow served to me here. There was just no way to finish it all... esp. with appetizers and the side of potatoes (absolutely delicious, you won't regret these)! Maybe try going for lunch so you have the rest of the day to digest your food. Only complaint was the atmosphere. While elegant, it felt a little stuffy. Like it's for a men's society or something. I don't know, maybe that was just me. Either way, go and you won't leave hungry!

My friends and I go here once a year - yes, it's expensive but it's completely worth it. Our reservation times are always honored, the wine glasses are never empty, and they have the best sirloin and filet mignon I have ever had (not to mention the hash browns)... The servers are attentive and friendly and the desserts are great too.

Nice atmosphere, attentive service, excellent wine recommendations by our server. Enjoyed their signature steak, which was cooked to perfection. I could care less about the tirmmings or anything else for that matter, I want good meat when I go to a steak house and Sparks always delivers.

A surly, unhelpful slow waiter who stood over me as I was signing the bill, and snatched it just as I signed it...oversalted, gristly sirloin, a plate of bland spinach. I think the trouble started as we requested normal water, not the fizzy stuff, and only ordered a $50 bottle of wine. I'm glad it was just my girlfriend and a couple friends, not a client to impress...I wouldn't return, even with an expense account.
