We reserved a table here based on its position to our hotel. What a great choice. The restaurant is across a couple of floors. Downstairs has a low ceiling, lots of dark wood and feels quite intimate. Our table was in the large, upstairs dining room, but in a corner so still pretty private. Starters were fine - a decent...

They have the largest collection of old pipes in the world (at least thats what I've been told), and they are all over the walls and ceilings its amazing to see. Our waiter was brilliant, we were celebrating my birthday and got a... More

Excellent from start to finish. Make sure you are hungry! They cook it perfectly, but as our waiter said, if you want Medium Rare the meat comes red and warm, if you ask for Rare, the meat come red and cold. Be sure what you want.

I've visited all the top steakhouses for work and I can say this is really one of the best, but not the best. There's nothing to complain about here but wolfgangs is the cream of the crop

Great atmosphere and environment- dark panels, interesting pipes history and old school white prestige tables traditionally laid with traditional well run bar. Steaks were perfection - we both had T-bones which were melt in the mouth (mine medium rare, his medium well) peppercorn sauce is to die for and sides are definitely to share! The lump crab cocktail is simple,... More

Went on Monday for a late meal-we could only get 9.30 after needing to change our booking. Unfortunately it meant we weren't hungry which was a real shame as what we had was delicious! I had the smallest fillet and my husband the mutton. Huge portions and we failed to finish the one side we ordered. Nice couple of glasses... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
