“Mediocre Food Unpleasant Surroundings”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

We both ordered steak. Mine was tough and gristly. The server acted as if he was doing us a favor by noticing us at all. There were two VERY loud and crude groups near us and nothing was done to tone them down. After many years teaching in inner city schools I do have a good bit of tolerance for crude language, but what I was forced to listen to was over the top. The manager spent his time contributing to the uproar instead of telling people their behaviors were inappropriate. As visitors to NYC we were told this was a great place to get late-night supper. Not so!

“Warm welcome”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

You can find plenty of great steakhouses in NYC, but none have friendlier, kindler waitstaff. Food was wonderful and we had such a good time due to a waiter who made sure we were happy.

Our second time at this restaurant, the first was a few years ago and we really enjoyed.
This time we were disappointed, we wanted to order the same thing befor, we asked the waiter but he did not really have struggled to understand what we wanted from the menu.
The food arrived after a relatively long time and obviously not what we wanted.
With a little more patience of the waiter we were not disappointed paying $ 155

“Best place for relaxed great dinner.”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Excellent service by all staff. Roast beef hash and coconut cake are a must? The staff were friendly and informative. Steak was cooked perfect. Never rushed like other NYC steak houses. Ate in the grill which I highly recommend for adults. Outside seating available.
