I normally never write reviews, but this place left me no choice. I went with my girlfriend and the service was unpleasant. She even said, "I feel like someone should come around and fill our wine", both of our glasses were empty. The cream spinach side was so garlicy we could not even finish it. On to the main course we got the porterhouse for 2. I have never in my life had such a inconsistently cooked steak. Some bites were great, others were so charred on the outside it was really burned and the taste would not leave my (or her) mouth, (and we ordered it med-rare). All and all, for $200 after wine and tip I will not be going back to this steakhouse.

I love the food here. However, the restaurant almost always rushes my party. This past visit I made a reservation for a large party on a Thursday for the following Saturday (since my group is a fan of the restaurant). The reservationist repeated the reservation with some random date a month later I corrected her and she then confirmed that I was all set to eat that Saturday. I arrive at the restaurant on-time and they can't find the reservation (she had not corrected the mistake). The manager came over and seemed aggrivated and kept shaking his head. He made it completely obvious that he thought I showed up without a reservation and when I told him that I did not appreciate the way they were handling the matter he snapped that he was doing me a service by letting me know we're lucky if he could seat our party (9 people) at any point in the evening let alone on-time and that's it not his problem. 45 minutes later they sat us at the bar--cramped---we had a great reunion and spent $2,500. I'm really not sure how they get by in the recession with that attitude. I am glad the rest of my party was not there initially to witness or be a part of this poor treatment. Fast forward 3 weeks and the restaurant calls to confirm my reservation. They still hadn't corrected the mistake!! Any way, they are clearly incompetent and rude in my eyes. Great food though and sexy/chic decor that is women friendly.

My boyfriend and I went to the Strip House for our one year anniversary and it completely lived up to our expectations. The scallops were to die for, and the strip steak was incredibly juicy. The creamed spinach and mushrooms were fantastic and the brownie dessert topped the meal off perfectly. While the ambiance was noisier than expected, if you're there with the right person, you'll have no problem having great conversation while enjoying an amazing meal.

When I went with family, we were treated to some of the most exceptional service and food I've ever had. The foie gras appetizer is to die for, make sure you combine the figs that they serve with it and you will feel like you're in heaven. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly, and so were everyone else's steaks. Make sure to try the truffled creamed spinach as a side!

It is hard for me to believe that many of these reviews are not merely negative, but nasty. I have seen Strip House evolve over the nine years of its existence. It has gone from a very good steak house to an excellent restaurant. We had dinner there last night with three friends and had a superb meal with great service. When I was picking a Burgundy to go along with the steaks, the restaurants manager/sommelier suggested another choice at a lower price. The plateau of cold shellfish ( oysters, shrimp, alaskan king crab, lobster, oysters, tuna tatare, ceviche of bay scallops) was the equal if not better than any I have ever experienced, here or in France. Appetizers of torchon of foie gras, toast with gorganzola sauce were superb. Steaks cooked perfectly. Sides of goose fat potatoes, fries, and the best creamed spinach on the planet were beyond great. Twenty-one layer cake and baked Alaska were over the top. With wine, any great steak house will cost $100-125 per person - as did our dinner. The place is great. Amities Gourmandes, ally's dad

I've heard from a bunch of people that this is the best steakhouse in the city. It is not even in the top tier. Lugers, Wolfgangs, Keens, Ben&Jacks, etc are much better. The steak is ok, the sides are not so good. The service is very poor.

The sever had a better holier than thou attitude and generally not polite. At an average of $100 per person one would except top shelf here. Compared to standards set by NYC's other steakhouses, the place was shoddy and run down with the decor thrown together haphazardly. Not the job of a professional interior designer but someone who had an "idea". The nonstop clicking of the pen in our faces when taking orders and general disrespectfulness was topped with an indignant "I have been going to steakhouses since I was 18" when asked why their lighter weight strip cost more than their heavier weight rib eye. I guess because it was the "Strip" steak in the Strip House. The NY strip was plain burnt, eh hem... "charred" on the outside, passable on the inside. The wild mushroom side was overpowered with salt. The gourmet brownie was passable. Yet another place that pretends to be a top tier steakhouse and charges the prices to match but falls a mile short of understanding what it takes to be such. Not worth the trip.
