The first time was amazing, the strip steak melted in your mouth and the creamed spinach and goose fat potatoes only added to the flavor that makes your eyes flutter. We've gone back a half dozen more times and the last time was the worst, a steady decline over the past 2 years. You must wait for at least one hour, the waiters seem to learning, and the ambiance which was more intimate has gotten overly boisterous (still unique and class with the red burlesque theme). This was my favorite place, a new search begins.

I think the steak here is good, but a little over hyped. Pretty much your average NY steak house in terms of food, which is still pretty good. The atmosphere is pretty cool though. Very unique setup, more burlesque house than a steak house (thus the name "Strip House"). Also, got to sit at a table next to Charles Barkley.

We had dinner here a few weeks ago. No appetiser and we decided to share the chateaubriand - it was beautifully prepared and was delicious. It was only during the meal that we realised we were having trouble hearing one another and therefore our voices became raised to enable us to be able to hear one another. The dessert was some sort of profiterole thing that we - luckily - shared. It was very dissappointing but for a steak - and a well cooked one - I'd highly recommend this place, but maybe bring walkie-talkies!

I went to this place last week, WITH RESERVATIONS, and still had to wait over an hour to be seated. Other than the pretentious seating staff, and somewhat ditzy waitress, the food was really not that bad. The sides are to die for. But unfortunately the wait and lack of organization is enough to keep you away....

Been here twice and had the rib eye both times. Absolutely amazing. I would say that this place and Del Friscos have the best cuts of meat in NYC, just a totally different environment in both. You go here for a date or for a meal with the family. They always give a shot of soup with dinner which is good. For sides, the black truffel spinach is amazing, and you can't miss with the wild mushrooms. For dessert, the cheesecake is massive and really needs to be shared.

My wife and I went for the chocolate cake. It was, quite possibly, the best I've ever had. Not too sweet. Just the right temperature. We split one piece and couldn't finish it. They even wrote "Happy Anniversary" on the plate in chocolate sauce! Great atmosphere, great service, AMAZING cake. We will go back again... and again... and again.

I finally made it to the Strip House (even though the taxi driver looked at me quite funny when I told him the name). Ambiance is great - old style decor with somewhat modern music. The Steaks were excellent (we had a strip and prime rib) and the sides such as truffle oil cream spinach were heavenly. A really nice way to spice up the somewhat rusty meat restaurant business. I'll definitely be back.
