Simply the best steak I have ever tasted...My wife made our reservation as a treat for my birthday, the service was fantastic, the steak was as previous reviews have stated SIMPLY MELT IN THE MOUTH....the vegetables were a plenty and beautifully cooked, the wine list was extensive. Yes you would be correct in thinking that Sparks is not the cheapest option in NY, but who cares when you get food as good as this unbeatable...FANTASTIC..!!

Typical, if you want the best, you have to go to New York to get it, and when it comes to a prime sirlion, Sparks is second to none. My wife and I live in suburban Philadelphia, but spend as much time as we can in NYC. Our many trips are never complete without having dinner at Sparks.

After dining at all the steak spots in nyc and feeling quite disappointed, I feel Sparks is by far the best . I can count on Sparks for consistency,excellent service,and fantastic food. The wines are superlative the portions generous and the people watching, interesting. I find myself looking forward to the low carb high as I anxiously tuck into a juicy steak topped with roqufort cheese and the most succulent lobster I've ever eaten ..ummm delish!! An Atkins dieters delight!!

Sparks is what a great steakhouse should be. Hearts of palm salad, creamed spinach and unbelievable cuts of prime beef. It has never failed me.

Best Steakhouse in NYC w/upscale, well-trained staff, old school decor, heavenly Steaks and Wine meant for sophisticated palates. If you're not ready to drop a few thousand at *Sparks* suggest Lugers/Maloney/ Wollensky/Ruth's...Sparks' proud/historic Wine list rivals the best French restaurants in NYC (NO other Steakhouse can claim this!) while the Prime Sirloin (well done) is to die for, Try the Steak Fromage, Beek Scallapini with 1986 Chateau Latour, recommend the 1992 Dom Perigone to start, Tartuffo for dessert is a God-send! Sparks is for Bankers, Ballers and Don's, if you're none of the above don't expect top-notch service. Bottom Line: Impressive wine list, pinstriped crowd, must be willing to spend, excellent food, Perfect service, best for groups/couples but not kids, By far the best Steakhouse in NYC- Always has and always will be. Sparks For Life! Enjoy!

<b><font color=navy> I have always come in a casual suit (no tie ever). I read some reviews that were ridiculous. I have been to ever steakhouse worth mentioning and dollar for dollar the best steak for the money. OK, so if you think the meal here is expensive then you couldn't possibly be a native NYer. No one has a better mozzarella and tomato - the shrimp cocktails are Godzilla sized and of course the sirloin is the one to have if you are a 1st timer there. Personally I enjoy the sliced steak as much as the Sirloin but, hey, that's my choice My sister in law totally freaked me out when she decided to order lobster - I was almost offended "I MEANT WTF, You are in a steakhouse!". I will tell You readers this, Lobster in drawn butter rates very high on my list (No, I don't keep kosher - hehe) and eating lobster on a steakhouse just doesn't fit in my list of things to do. I ate my words, my sister-in-law rolled here eyes and said, WOW! I thought she was just exaggerating since we ate plenty of Lobster in other places. I took a bite and I was in shock. Old world decor and service is what you would expect from a traditional NYC Steakhouse. As per dress codes...this is my take on this. The average folk that goes there are not snobs but business people and true Steak eating citizens. Show a little respect for your neighbor and dress clean with a button down shirt and slacks, Wear the jeans for Peter Lugers - I mean it!!!
