Randomly felt like a steak on a Sunday afternoon and had heard good things about this place so went in for an early dinner. From the second I stepped in, I knew I'd enjoy my meal. Started with the thick cut bacon which was great. Ordered the rib-eye medium rare and received it as such. Great creamed spinach and steak fries. This might not be the place to take a date or your mother, as the decor and service isn't as 'refined' (which isn't to say the staff is disrespectfulhardly) as other nyc steakhouses, but for perfect food, this place is second to none.

Great steak but the waiters are among the rudest I have even seen in an NYC steakhouse. They are worse than a used car salesman. They try and force people to order more food than they want and give dirty looks if you don’t order what they deem to be an acceptable amount. There is a difference between guests that are there for a business dinner with a corporate account and a modest family of four. Either they aren’t smart enough to figure that out or they just don’t care.

There are so many finer restaurants to enjoy in New York City, so why allow someone to overcharge for $10 french fries, or how about $9 for some onions you decide to order to go with your steak? This is nonsense, There's no reason for the steakhouses to demand you to bend over and look like a fool for the privilege of eating just a hunk of meat. I don't even call this cooking, as there is no real preparation to make a steak. Might as well just order a burger at a local burger joint for 1/10th the price.... Same thing, just ground up meat, and unseasoned. Now talk to me about real cuisine, which you won't find at this steakhouse made with a variety of ingredients, seasonings, sauces, etc. That's what I call finesse, and why expensive restaurants need to charge more to cover these costs. As for Wolfgangs, if I didn't get a 50% discount, I wouldn't have even eaten there.

Went last night with my parents at 6PM and it was already getting crowded but they let us pick any table we wanted. Appetizers were the crabmeat cocktail and the chopped salad with shrimp. Both were very good. Main courses were steak both med/rare and VERY rare. Done perfectly and also the grilled salmon. Sides were some amazing sauteed onions, and vegetables. We were too full for dessert.....next time for sure! By the time we left at 8PM, every table was full and everyone left happy. Service was great and efficient.

My boss took myself and another employee there for lunch and I am NOT a steak eater and thought this was one of the best steaks I had ever eaten. The rest of the fare was also excellent, but not as good as the steak. It was expensive, but steakhouses in NYC are and this was no worse than any place else. I loved the atmosphere - Vanderbilt's personal train station with original ceilings, etc...Great place to eat. A little noisy and mostly male, but like other great steak houses. Eat there...I haven't a clue why these others had such a bad experience, but I think it's probably a fluke.

Not sure why everyone here had such a poor experience, Wolfgang's is a knock off of Lugers and had commendable service to me. The steak was by far the best I've had and I highly recommend going. It's loud, so be prepared to talk at higher decibels. But overall a great experience, I took my father there last week and will be back.

And that’s coming from an Englishmen, steak was ok but for the price you can get a lot better. The service was so bad I could not believe I was in NY. I will not return.
