Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice restaurant in the center of Hamburg. Staff was kind and knowledgeable. Extensive wine list from all over the world. Starters were amazing. Food was also amazing. Prices are high but they are well deserved. Tables are a bit small.

This restaurant is located in the Side Design hotel. The restaurant itself is very well design and inviting. As the name implies, meat is their specialty. The steaks were extremely tasty and cooked to order. The restaurant is very close to the Staatsoper for a...great show after the dinner.More

Very little I have to add to my review from last year, the restaurant remains a wise and pricey choice for meat-eaters! If hearing carefully the clear explanations waiters present you with, no way something can go wrong. The mocktails are listed at the end...of the page and in blue. The one negative point is the presence of dogs in the place, really unhygienic and inappropriate.More

We have been regular guests at the m-eatery. They are known for a good steak, but yesterday was truly disappointing. We had our table for 9 reserved at 20.30h for the birthday of our son, and only left the restaurant at 23.30h with 3 courses....The restaurant is not cheap and the bill was heafty, but we knew that. However, for that I would expect exceptional service, which was the case in previous times. The service yesterday was slow and inattentive. The starters did not arrive as ordered, side dishes were missing, cold and tasteless. The waiter argued with one of the guests about the order. At the very end we had glas in one of the deserts. Finally, the waiter was very appolgetic, and gave us a double espresso and a Sambucca on the house. Today, the restaurant chief called and applogized again, and offered us a free starter at our next visit. I am very disappointed and think that this little of a gesture only made me more angy and actually made me write this review. I see this gesture as not understanding the matter. Unfortunately this will make us not go back, truly sad.More

Arrived with a reservation on a busy Friday night; the place was packed. Fast and friendly reception at the door and looking forward to a great evening. The service started off very well; friendly, informed and professional. As the evening progressed and the restaurant started...to empty (we arrived at 8pm) the service started to decline: It took almost 30 minutes before our finished starter plates were cleared. When it comes to wine service, it started well but we all got the feeling that the server became rather condescending (three of us are sommeliers and work with restaurant service). Long waits between courses and feel that given the hype and price, it could have been a little more attentive. When it comes to the food, all I can say is excellent. The wine list was okay but not in any way exciting; it would be nice to find something between a decent American cab and a wildly over-priced one. Would definitely go back and give it another try, but not the "wow" experience we had at another restaurant the following night.More

Booked a table here on the 15/9 for the 7/11, so almost 2 months in advance, since it was my boyfriends birthday and he had important meeting in Hamburg that day and I wanted it sorted so he could focus on his meeting and I...could focus on making the rest of his day special. I just want to say, neither of us are from Hamburg nor Germany at all so it’s not super easy to just find another place to eat, especially when you want a special evening and have made plans to go to a specific place. 3 days before the reservation I get an email saying that my reservation has been canceled. I call them to figure out what’s going on, since I booked almost 2 months in advance, and I am told that they have a private dinner party that day so the reservation has been canceled. They claim it was a mistake that I could even make the reservation in the first place, which is fair enough. But if you knew far in advance that people shouldn’t be able to book on that day why am I only told 3 days before. Furthermore, I just got an “I’m sorry about that” and absolutely nothing more. So now I have to figure out somewhere else to eat in a city that I have never visited and know nothing about. Thank you very much for your amazing service and consideration. So if you’re thinking to book here to be sure to have a good place for a birthday, a nice night out or other special things. Do not book here unless you want to find another place in 3 days and have extra stress about that.More

Good things first: very attentive and friendly service. Good advice on wine. But the food - a steak of German beef - was rather boring and burned on the outside. Stay away from what they call Sauce Bearnaise. It tastes of nothing. The restaurant is...quite expensive, but my experience was that you do not get value for money.More

Nice ambiance here in Hamburg. They have awesome (dry aged) steak and meat. But their signature 'cubes/tartar' of either fish or meat is a great formula I have not seen earlier. You can choose for 80 grams a piece cubes of tartar with different style...of dressings. Asian, traditional, etc. raw fish or meat is served in cubes with the dressing of choice. Very good as a starter and you can take as many as you like, we had two per person which is adequate. The steaks are not cheap but very well prepared and tasty. I could only recommend this place, bring your wallet but you will have good food. The bread and the butter is also good to taste and does complement the starter very much. You can choose different sides and again: no wrong choice here. Only downside is that not (all) staff is very knowledgable. They mixed our (cube) dishes up and our 'main' waitress had to come out to sort the matter. This is too bad in every way. Not something you would expect from a restaurant with these prices. Other 'thingy' is that the toilet(rooms) are quite a hike away from the restaurant place. But other than that: yes I can no more than recommend this place.More
