“Different than S&W”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

This Grill is around the corner from Smith & Wollensky's. While each has access to the other the kitchens are separate and the menus different. The Grill is one of my favorite places in NYC. Colorado ribeye, excellent crabcakes, shrimp and salads to name a few. Burgers are delicious. The waitstaff is very professional and do their best to ensure the patron is happy. If you like this type of food as much as I, this is your place.

“Now we are talking ....SUPERB!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Now this was a surprise ...Tired , hot ,and in desperate need of a decent meal we took our chances and popped in here ..anything to get away fro the OTT prices and bad service experienced at The Waldorf and I don't think we could have made a better decision..unless of course we had taken a cab to Gemma at The Bowery Hotel, which is a gem.
The service was excellent , the staff friendly and funny and the food ? well ..you will not find a better cooked rib eye steak anywhere in the world ..it really was that good!
washed down with some lovely Barolo red wine it was perfect way to end our day..the night still beckoned!

“Great Bar Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Lunch at the bar at Wollensky's Grill was a bit more of a casual affair than lunch in the restaurant proper would have been, but it allowed us to watch some tele at the same time, and the restaurant was full in any event.

Food was excellent. Service very good, though it was evident that the bartender knew certain bar patrons well, and looked after them a bit more diligently.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

We turned up to the Smith and Wollensky steakhouse as a party of 8 on President's Day at 7:30. Unfortunately they had no tables but made a call and fitted us in to the adjacent grill - which has a slightly condensed menu. The service was fantastic, the food great - lobster, steak, ribs and the whole place just had a fantastic buzz.
