Description: We are a Classic American Steakhouse in the heart Greenwich Village. Wood panel walls, and comfy booths, give the feel of an earlier era. In business for over 40 years, serving Great American Fare and our Famous 28 oz T Bone Steaks. We feature Live Jazz on Friday and Saturday Evenings starting at 9:00 till 1:00. Harry Connick Jr. got his start at the Knick. We have our share of local celebrities from Chris Noth, Alec Baldwin, F. Murray Abraham, Josh Charles, Jessica Lange, just to name a few. Good Food & Good Jazz is what we are. Most items are all made on premise, from house made desserts, ice creams and sorbets, to our house made pastas and house smoked salmon, and our popular Caviar Pie. We pour a good drink at reasonable prices, as are our portions of food. Our T Bone Steaks include creamed spinach and mashed potatoes.

Reviewed 7 April 2014

My wife and I tried the Knickerbocker and had a great time. Very old school feel. Food was good (not great) but certainly worth a try. Staff was friendly. Cookie would have been fantastic with more ice cream.......but don't miss it either way!

“Best chicken pot pie ever”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

You have to have the chicken pot pie with truffle shavings! Yes, it may take at least 20 minutes but well worth the wait. The best I have ever had (the crust, the filling, it was all good). It was huge and could be shared by two people depending on your appetite. I also had their onion soup and it had that nice cheesy browned top and lovely broth taste. The entrees were all huge so I doubt most will need to order appetizer or dessert. Pair it with a nice cold beer and a happy belly it is. The waitress was very attentive and provided excellent service.

“Family Favorite”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We started coming here in 2001 when my son started college at nearby NYU. Some 13 years later that son and now his brother still live in NYC. And we still come here. Whether we are toasting a birthday or just catching up after months apart, it's our first choice for celebrations. Although the food is reliably tasty, it's mostly the homey, neighborhood feel that draws us back time and time again. Waitstaff are excellent; warm, welcoming, and unafraid to offer intelligent menu suggestions. We typically order the T-bone for the entire table; the fried onions atop are definitely worth the additional expense. Sides are enormous; the creamed spinach is wonderfully decadent, but even the more prudent bright green steamed broccoli is delicious and prepared perfectly al dente. We've never had room for dessert, and generally stagger home with heavy doggy bags. We are very, very fond of this place; it's become a lovely family tradition. .

“old worlde restaurant”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

our daughter insisted we have lunch and try their FAMOUS T bones. A most pleasant experience.The service was most attentive. The meal delicious.
Coming from South Africa we found the cost of our lunch to be outrageous. I must admit they do have a wide variety of well priced meals on their menu.
Suggest a visit but be careful what you order

“As Great As Always”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

This is a go-to steak house and all around restaurant. From appetizers to dessert, everything was excellent. The beet salad with 3 types of beets and goat cheese was delicious as was everyone else's salads and the lobster bisque soup. Bass was broiled to perfection, as was the skirt steak. The standby t-bone for two (also comes for one, three or four) with creamed spinach and mashed potatoes was outstanding as always. There is also a very nice wine selection by the class or bottle. We ended with the choclate mousse cake for the table. Even with four of us we could not finish it.
Our wait person was personable, efficient and a delight. Everyone at our table fell in-love with her. We will be back often.
