My wife and have been here several times and again just recently, so this is long overdue.
In our opinion this is he best steak house in the area. Very high quality, well aged and cooked perfectly. The best steak fries you ever wrapped your face around. Outstanding ribs and seafood as well. Great Caesar . Been here many times and have never been disappointed.
The really distinguishing thing about this place is they have a cigar store and a bar where you can smoke and even eat dinner. This is especially nice as the bar is more intimate and much quieter, except when the Rangers are in the playoffs, or the Yankees are on TV, but even then, a great atmosphere.
The serve is attentive, but they let you relax and actually enjoy a great meal. The bartenders are skilled and know how to make a great cocktail.
This is our go to place in the area, where there are several good restaurants. A little pricey, but very good value for the buck.
Try it, ypu'll like it.

Not the fanciest resturant, but they do have excellent steaks. The best part of this resturant, is that it is one of the few decent resturants that are open on a Monday. We just celebrated our anniversary and it was the only place in the area open on a Monday. The website said they were open on Monday's,but I actually called to make sure! Thank you Schlesinger's for being open on Monday's!

When you go to a restaurant that specializes in steak you think you will go and get a great steak. The times I have gone the steaks were not flavorful and most of the time they were tough. Cool thing about this place is that they have a Cigar room that you can smoke a stogie there but if that is not your style, you might not want to come because the smoke does slip out.

As previously noted this place coasts by more on reputation and the novelty of the cigar bar. I have eaten here on weekends predominantly and without fail they are out of menu items and almost always certain cuts of steak. And I'm not talking about 830pm on a Saturday...I'm talking 6-630pm with major menu items off the menu. Waitstaff have been uniformly good but are not well informed and we have had numerous instances of ordered food being "out" after the fact. My 2/14/14 experience there was the last straw (missing menu items, slow service, overlooked food) but the winter weather experienced in NY the days prior certainly played a part in that. The place should have been closed and instead stayed open and I have a feeling left a bad taste in many guest's mouths. The place just can't seem to handle busier days and I'd recommend new guests try it on a weekday where the crowd doesn't affect the menu and food quality.

I was looking forward to having a decent steak so off we went. the building is old but thats ok it's what inside that counts.
when we stepped in and walked pass a cigar bar,I thought o boy, you could see a haze in the air not a good first impression.
I was still excited though. the prices are a bit high.the place was cold and to use the ladles room you had to use the one by the cigar bar not a good smell to get into your hair and clothes.
lets just say we wont be returning.
