They were slammed busy but Wolfgang and the Maitre di' managed to stop by all of the tables a couple of times. The steak is of the highest quality aged to perfection on premesis. Don't buy ANY of the reviews about poor quality food, because this is not what is served there. Steak for 2 is the way to go. Perfect Porterhouse. Because of the ornate tiled ceiling, the noise bounces around and it can be a bit loud.

Went here the begining of Dec. 2006 and the place didn't live up to one iota of its "hype". The steaks were more than "char-broiled" they had a burnt like taste to them, as well as the side of cottage fries in which a little more that half of the order was edible since they too were burnt pretty badly. The service was kind of rushed, and when I was asked by the pompous maitre'd how everything was he basiclly turned his back on me and ignored me once he chose not to hear my comments. This place doesn't live up - there are so many other excellent steak houses in the city don't go here just because "Wolfgang" used to work at Peter Lugers. Big Deal!

When I went to Wolfgang, I was not happy with the steak at all! Although the steak is not good, they have huge potato chips that are amazing. They also have spectacular cream spinach and mashed potatoes. The waiters could not be nicer and the restaurant could not be louder. For their prices, I would think I would be getting something better.

Superb steak - highly recommended. I've been several times, after trying a few competitors. Agreed that the service at times can be less than friendly. Not sure if this is due to the Luger's lineage.

We went to Wolfgang because we had a gift certificate. I was not expecting a great meal (and I love steak) after reading all the reviews. Also wasn't expecting good service. Well, everything was really good. We had the steak for two. It was cooked perfectly and delicious. The onion rings are great. Tomato and onion salad was fine. As someone said, the onion really isn't a very sweet variety, but it was good. Our waiter was pleasant, and efficient. Only problems, and it is at every steak house, is the loud environment. Really can't have a great conversation. The gentleman at the table next to us was speaking so loudly to be hear that I can tell you his entire life story! Another gripe-the restaurant seemed to tell me that they never take a reservation for 2 between 6:30 and 9:00. We had a 9:00 reservation, we came early, and were seated by 8:50, but really wanted to come about 8:00. Made the reservation 2 weeks in advance, and they said they could never accomodate us at 8. Overall, I would return, and rate the food up there with the best steakhouses.

Very Simply Put - The Steak was very good - however this is New York - there are at least a half dozen places where you can get a comparable steak. The service is the worst I have experienced in my life. Bouncers behind a velvet rope at an obnoxious downtown club are infinitely nicer to deal with.

Went here for lunch yesterday. In my opinion very overrated. I went with a party of seven. Myself and a friend split the Porterhouse for two and ordered it medium. It was bloody and not all that tasty. I also sampled the filet and NY Strip from others at the table. Both were better than the Porter but still nothing special. Had the canadian bacon first and it was undercooked also and more than half fat. Atmosphere was good but a bit too noisy. I've been to most of the steakhouses in NYC and while I wouldn't put it down on the level of Gallaghers (or even Old Homestead) I certainly wouldn't rate it nearly as highly as the Striphouse. I also prefer Keen's.
