Took some out-of-towners here for an authentic NY steakhouse experience. Everyone had a good time. Got the steak for 4 & it was cooked perfectly. Onions & tomatoes were okay, tomatoes were a bit mealy. Sides were fine, not as good as some other steakhouses in the city. Great for having a good steakhouse dinner experience: everyhting works, but nothing spectacular either. Service was fine with a few small lapses. There are other places can do a better job with specific items, but Wolfgang's does a nice job all around.

First off I will say that everything I are here was amazingly good. The filet mignon, creamed spinach, oysters, fried onion rings and wine were all perfect. However, I have never been treated so rudely in my life. The waiters, and we had four different ones at various points in the evening, barely even grunted at us, let alone made me feel even slightly welcome. I got a condescending attitude when I asked to wrap up my leftovers- the waiter actually rolled his eyes at me! We had to ask two different waiters for the check over a 20 minute period. Finally a third waiter threw our check down on the table. Honestly, for what this place costs, you can eat at any restaurant in Manhattan and be treated miles better.

I was told this would be a great experience and a great steak, however the steak was so unappealing i only ate 1/3 of it - it was cooked fine, but the taste left something to be desired. The side dishes were good, but I went for a good steak, and when I pay $40 for a cut of beef, I expect it to taste better than I could cook at home, not worse.

We were seated right on time for a 9PM reservation on a Saturday night. Put at a great table in a nice room. None of the 6 of us had eaten here before and we really enjoyed it. Appetizers were the shrimp cocktail (great size) salad, and the bacon. Main course some had the porterhouse which got rave reviews, the sirloin and for fish we had the salmon and the sea bass....nice size portions and done very well. We had mashed potato and vegetables to share as sides. Dessert was a very decadent pecan pie, key lime pie and to top everything off, we had some great red wine during the meal. This is a place to frequent.

Ate here for the first time yesterday. If they can maintain the consistency of the steaks we had yesterday, then I would rate this place up there with Luger and Sparks as my top three steakhouses. I had a steak for one and my son and his friend had the steak for two. The steaks had the great beefy taste Luger's steaks are known for. My wife ordered swordfish, which came out overcooked. The cold seafood platter (shrimp, lump crab meat and lobster) was pretty good. The onion that came with the tomato salad was not of the sweet variety that should have been used. Skip the tomato and mozzarella, it's nothing worth writing home about. We avoided the cajun rib eye based on another review. Ordered a 2000 Barolo, but was given a 2001 for the same price. I pointed it out to the waiter and let it go, not wanting to make a big deal out of it because we were celebrating my son's birthday.

I ate here with my fiance the week Wolfgang's Tribeca opened. We live in the neighborhood and have been to the midtown location. We were seated promptly and drink orders taken right away. I had the lobster cocktail which was good while my fiance had canadian bacon and salad. Porterhouse for 2 was perfect, cooked exactly medium rare as requested. We had creamed spinach and hash browns which were also great. Ice cream sundae for dessert is not to be missed. Service was excellent and Wolfgang greeted every table in the house. We will be visiting Wolfgang's regularly!

Went here for lunch today, and I was just not impressed, especially what with all the hype, i.e, Wolfgang having been associated with Peter Luger for so long, his successful midtown restaurant, etc. I went for the lunch special -- I chose the Cajun Ribeye. It turned out to be much less seasoned than the one Morton's used to have downtown... that was my favorite steak! It was also much thinner and drier than Morton's version. There was some very limp boiled broccoli scattered on the plate -- very inedible. A small side of mashed potatoes and creamed spinach came along with the lunch special, but the potatoes were subpar --seemed like it came from a mix-- it was just a creamy slop! The spinach, to me, was the best part of the meal... barely a hint of cream in the sauce, and just a nice, bright green bunch of spinach, very nicely cooked. We started by sharing the tomato-and-onion salad for 2, and this was fine -- just like at Luger's. The red sauce here was very good, no complaints there. So, unless the a la carte dishes are much, much better (and it's not likely that the cajun ribeye would be any better ordered a la carte) I'd recommend avoiding this place.
