Went here to celebrate our first anniversary, and we were pleased for the most part. The room is straight out of a 20's cabaret club - dark red, dimly lit, oozing old-school class and intrigue. Was very pleased with the wine list and menu, though the list of afterdinner drinks could have been more comprehensive. We had the sea scallop and bacon for appetizers, and both were good if not earth-shattering. The ribeye for 2 was delicious and nicely prepared, with just the right amount of seasoning and buttery goodness. My one complaint seems to be a common one - the service constantly rushed us. With the prices they charge, I was hoping for something a bit better than the happy-hour bum's rush that one would expect at a bar and grill. I asked our server to calm it down a bit, and for the most part, he complied. In short, great meal, great atmosphere, but the constant feeling of being rushed was annoying and seems to be a recurring theme at Strip House.

I get to New York about 3-4 times a year to spend time with my sons who work in New York. We have allways made at least one of our dinners together on each of my visits at the Strip House and have spent pretty heavily on our dinners there. It has been our tradition for each of us to buy an expensive bottle of wine and take them with us to the Strip House. We had never objected to their corkage fees. When I visted NYC over the 2008 Christmas holidays, we brought several bottles of excellent wine with us as we always have. When we were seated, the waiter told us the Strip House had adopted a new policy--no outside wine. We asked him to kindly speak to the manager and to tell the manager we were unaware of the new policy; that we had brought our wines with us and that he should charge us whatever corkage fees he thought were reasonable. The waiter came back and said the manager was not on the premises but he was told by whomever he talked to that the new policy was --no outside wine--and absolutely no exceptions. It was too late for us to switch restuarants at the last moment, so we ordered dinner but did not order any wine. The restuarant and the waiter missed out on the corkage the restaurant could have charged us , which would have been at least the same amount as if an additional person had been in our party and had ordered appetizers, dinner and dessert and and left a tip. The Strip House is shooting itself in the foot. In this tough economy, it should accommodate its customers. Instead its penny wise and pound foolish policy cost it lost revenue from us that night and has cost them our future business as we will find a more accomodating restuarant for my future visits. I might be low on the ratings I give on Food Quality, etc. but the entire way I view the Strip House changed after that night and I don't look upon it as I once did.

My boss invited my husband and i here for a congratulatory meeting on my new promotion. We made reservations. My boss was running late so when we arrived to confirm our reservations we were treated rather rudely. I explained to them the situation and they even spoke to my boss on the phone (unecessarily). They would not seat us until my boss arrived. Food arrived quickly but i was not impressed. Even my boss could not finish his overcooked steak. The garlic bread was dripping with grease. The garlic fries were undercooked and too buttery tasting. Our waiter hovered over us. As quick as the plates came they disappeared. Now this is all on a tuesday evening and it was empty. We felt rushed. We attempted to address some issues with the manager but was told he was not on the premises. If you like mediocre food and hurried service please feel free to go here.

This place has the complete package. The service was great. The atmosphere very comfortable, and the food was absolutely outstanding. I've been to some great steakhouses before, but this is at the top of the list. The 14 oz filet was perhaps the best steak I've eaten in my 48 years. My wife and I celebrated a special occasion that we will never forget. Bargain hunters shop elsewhere.

Went here for the first time with my girlfriend for our 1 year anniversary. We arrived at 7pm and were seated promptly. There were plenty of available tables but the hostess decided to sandwich us between two other dining couples. The tables were fairly close together so our neighbors' conversations were easily overheard. Started with the caesar salad which was not good due to an overbearing flavor from pureed anchovies. $14x2 wasted. We split the 20oz bone in strip steak which cost additional $7 to share. It was a decent steak but slightly bland. The steak sauce tasted like lugers' but without the horseraddish. The waiter also took away our plates prematurely when we finished the steak but not the sides (creamed spinach and mushrooms). The staff seems to rush you, probably to serve more people and earn more in tips. Lastly the banana tart was too sweet and difficult to eat b/c of the thick cookie crust at the base. The pecan pralines that came with the check were way too sweet and not even worth trying. First and last time there.

I dined here last evening with my family. After hearing such great reviews I was excited to take them here. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. The vibe and atmosphere of the restaurant is very cool. We did not order any starters because of previous reviews rating them mediocre. We did get an order of the garlic bread which was drenched in grease. The rolls in the bread basket were good but the servers do not like giving you more. We had ribeye and ny strip both of which were good. The sides were a huge let down. I do not get the big deal with cream spinach and goose fat potatoes. Mediocre at best and overpriced for portion size. The herb french fries were better than the others. For dessert, the chocolate cake although huge is more quantity than quality. It is not that good its just big. The profiterole was average as well. Overall I would not recommend nor come back here again. The bread and steak were good but everything else was average at best. Save your money and dine at a better steak house.

This is not your typical steakhouse and should be considered a typical steakhouse. The food is fantastic. I mean off the hook! The Cowboy Rib Eye, ordered medium rare, came out with a wonderful crust and a cool red center and just melted in my mouth. The server was wonderful. She has been there forever and guided us through the meal and made the night a wonderful experience. Truffles in the creamed spinach, crispy well done fries, and a chocolate cake to die for.
