Overrated and overpriced. mediocre food

I thought the food was pretty good, same with the service. Overall I think it's overrated and a bit overpriced

THE CROWD A comical mix of tourists (who read about this "trendy hot spot" in their city guide), the Bridge & Tunnel crowd from Jersey (hoping to appear glamorous for one night), and the Mid-Twenties After-Work Crowd (who don't really know a cool place to go to, so let's go to the Meatpacking). THE ATMOSPHERE Loud. Noisy. Hectic. Feels more like a night club than a steak-house. THE SERVICE Poor. They are always short on staff. The waiters are stressed out and can't handle conflict situations. The wait staff appears to be aspiring actors/dancers/writers etc. who don't give a ... about service, but are doing it for the tips only. And that's pretty much how they treat you. Like they are better, and this job is below them. THE DECOR They spent a lot of $$$ on it, so know that you're paying an extra 10% with every meal that they need to pay back the interior designer. THE FOOD It's on par. I'd say about average for New York restaurants of this price class. It's overpriced, that's for sure. But hey, it's the Meatpacking, right? INTEGRITY There is no such thing. This place was intentionally built to milk the consumer, not to make them feel special. They know that hordes of tourists and B&T's and After-Work folks will happily hand over their hard-earned dollars without realizing they've been completely fooled. SUMMARY This place has no heart, no soul, no service. It's too loud to have a decent conversations with your friends. If you don't care, go enjoy. If you do, you probably already know. Anyway, real New Yorkers don't go here. They know why.

Is it a nightclub steakhouse? Yes. Should you want to go to a nightclub steakhouse unless you are a group of 40s housewives from NJ trying to recapture your youth? Probably not. You will wait to be seated, you will not be able to hear the people you are dining with, you will barely be able to hear the waiter. The other people around will likely be wearing gold chains and their best horrible clothes. All that aside, the food isn't bad, the price is reasonable (for a NY steakhouse) and the service is okay. I'd stay away and go to a club after dinner if that is what you're into.

Food was good, service deplorable, and atmosphere wasnt for me, but I knew going in. If you want a club experience go to STK, for a dining experience go elsewhere

Everytime my friends and I wanted to celebrate a B-day. We would always skip this place because we were addicted to One little West...personally which I thought was better than STK. With that said the food was decent. I took my boyfriend here for his birthday...I liked the Shrimp Rice Krispie and the mixed mushroom side. The steak was ok but our service was subpar. The waiter wasn't really attentive...it didn't help that we were next to another waiter who went above and beyond in service for his table. My boyfriend and I wanted that type of service but oh well we didn't get it. I'm usally a good tiper and if you are on point I will give you at least 25% of bill but this guy only got 15% which I really wanted to give him less. I probably won't go back unless someone else is paying but I liked One so much better than this place. I haven't tried the Collective yet but will soon. I'm sure there are better steakhouse out there. The decor is very nice I have to say.

First I would like to start by saying that before I went to this restaurant I called several times to try and find out more about the menu. I could not get a person to answer my question since I later found out that I was connected to the corporate office and they couldn't help. To my dismay I was placed on very very long holds each of the 3 times I called and I never got through to someone who could help). When we arrived we could not see an address on the restaurant so I called to find out if i was at the right place since i didnt want to get out of my car in the freezing cold. Again , I was speaking to a person in corporate who put me on a 10 min hold and said it was his 1st day..after I got upset. When we walked in we were asked to check our coats..a real nuisance since it's on the 2nd floor! I think it would have been nicer if someone at the reception desk would have offered to take our coats instead of sending us upstairs. Also when we left it was the same story and it was a BIG annoying line to get our coats! We started with salads and all 4 that arrived on the table were CoLD! I font honk fine restaurants should serve cold salads. I ordered the Dover Sole and it was wierdly sliced and spiced. It was NoT the traditional dover sole I usually get. The only food I enjoyed were the sides of mushrooms and Sauted spinach. The desert was ok the waiter was pleasant. I would not eat here again because the food was not anything special. The atmosphere is happening but it's not a reason for me to come back to
