Excellent decor, good service, poor steaks. The Au Poivre was mediocre at best, with gristle. Crab cakes were indifferent. Waiter praised the souffle, which was dry on the outside and presented in an annoying shell. Nice crowd.

I love this place for their steaks and especially for a chocoholic like me---their Chocolate mousse cake in a pastry. A heavenly delight that I have to eat no matter how full I am after their great entree's. It's also a beautiful setting & a great place to 'people watch' at a table facing 6th Ave.

Wonka & Disney Open a Steakhouse

Call me old fashioned, but I'd rather get hollered at by some crusty old import at Luger's or the Palm, than have "veronica, I'll be your server tonight", just off the boat from Missouri or Texas, cheerily ask me to cut my steak down the middle to make sure it's done ok. As for the steak, it's fine. The sides, fine. Desserts, who cares. But the much ballyhooed decor leaves me cold. Somewhere between Disneyland and Wonka's chocolate factory, this place just doesn't work for me. This is New York, dammit, and New York Steak joints just aren't supposed to be this spectacular. Guess I'm just old fashioned like that.

This is a great steak house! Excellent appetizers, excellent steaks, excellent side dishes, though limited on veggies. Deserts are nothing special but you won't have room for them. Jellybeans at the door are an extra treat. Very up scale but you don't need a tie. Bring a big appetite and you won't be disappointed. Expensive. Enjoy .
