    Pathetic

    I was seated for dinner and after 15min past I started wondering how long it would take for someone to come to the table. I frequent many steakhouses and decided not to make a big deal of it, just out of curiosity. After 40min without anyone coming to the table I had to let the maitre-D know. "Just want to make you aware it's been 40 min and no one has come to the table". She looked utterly confused as if I had horns coming out the top of my head. No explanation by anyone, a server came up and took the order without listening. Received my mediocre meat and side at high end prices. They didn't charge for the cappucino which I guess was supposed to make it all alright. It's a comedy of a steakhouse, only because it takes itself as a serious one.

    Not going back

    I recently ate at the Midtown location where I encountered terrible service and mediocre food. The wine list is overpriced and not kept in correct conditions. Upon calling the company to discuss the experience, I spoke with someone who did nothing to remedy the situation except conduct a lawyer like deposition. I would avoid this place.

    Come for the beef, stay for the service

    No other type of restaurant gets more scrutiny and has more subjective opinions than steakhouses. So here is mine: Is Uncle Jack's overrated? Yes. Is it the best steakhouse in New York City? Not by a long shot. Does it boast some good quality beef? Most definitely. Go for the reduced price lunch menu which includes a Kobe beef burger (quite tasty indeed!). I don't understand previous posts regarding service problems. IMHO I thought the service was warm, attentive and efficient. In fact, it was a relief to have service that didn't feel like it had to be overly macho and gruff, a negative quality you get at some of the other top steakhouses in the city .

    Are You Serious?

    This afternoon, following business in the area, I had lunch at Uncle Jacks. I should have been forwarned by the flag out front that read "The Best Steakhouse." Such a personal accolade is never a good idea. I was given a nice table and the restaurant was crowded. The atmosphere tries to evoke a bygone era, but can only be described as a combination of cheap and garish. I started with three Bluepoint oysters. After waiting twenty minutes the oysters came out of the kitchen. They were hardly cold and were tasteless. This was followed by a Ceasar salad which was overly dressed and pedestrian. The 16oz. New York Strip was precarved off the bone and sliced - not my favorite presentation, but OK. The meat was of average quality at best, not fitting the designation "Prime," and not the equal of any top NY steakhouse. The creamed spinach was great! No desert - no beverage - Check an immodest $68 plus tip. The service was as lackluster as the food.

    mediocre food, exorbitant prices

    Uncle Jack's bills itself as "The Best Steakhouse in New York." Um. It is unclear to me where they arrived at this conclusion, since having eaten at literally dozens of steakhouses throughout the city I am fairly confident that this is among the least worth it. The food wasn't bad, per se, but when you compare what's on your plate to the dollar amount on the bill, it's kind of a slap in the face. Many of the steaks are cut in the kitchen and plated tableside, with the leftover juices and bones whisked back as soon as plating is done and no other option otherwise presented (I like to keep the bone! And I like to cut my steak myself, since I'm particular about the grain). All the steaks are blanketed in pepper, which masks the flavor of the meat. The shrimp cocktail, massively overpriced at $16 for three large (but not, as promised, extra-large) shrimp was the real key: the shrimp had the mealy texture of something previously frozen, and the mildly fishy flavor of something that's been left out too long. Admittedly, the service was great. But at over $50/person (before drinks), I'd expect food of a much much higher quality. I won't return.

    Over priced house wine

    Took my family there last year during Christmas. I'm use to paying top dollar in NYC for a steak... The Steak was very good but what really got me a little pissed was that I asked the waiter what type of house wine they serve which was Coastal BV. My wife and I drink Coastal BV at home so I figured it's fine... They charged me $16 a glass! I don't mine paying for a glass of wine but the bottle should cost more then the glass. I by BV Coastal for $8 bottle. Like your steaks start posting the cost of your wines if your going to charge $16 for a class of cheap house wine.
