STAY AWAY FROM THE PRE-FIXE (PRIVATE PARTIES)

What ever you do, DO NOT go with a pre-fix. I went there for a birthday in a private room and the experience was just "gloomy". The room was secluded on the second the floor and we were forced to listen to some dreadful elevator music and we had to use and iphone to play somewhat lively music. The pre-fix was terrible, it was $75pp (but ended up paying $140pp with tax/gratuity with just one drink pp). The appetizers were either romaine or iceberg lettuce salads, the main courses were a small churasco steak with 4 yuca fries or a fried chicken breast with 2 small potatoes. For dessert we were given sorbet scoops. Everything was so-so. I was not impressed at all. We brought a cake for the private room and we were charged $5pp to serve it. While the staff was very polite, paying $140 for one glass of champagne, a head of lettuce, one chicken breast and sorbet just didn't sit right with me. Like i said, DONT EVER do a pre-fixe here. For 10 people the bill was $1600.00 and we were all left hungry and regretting having agreed to this dull private room with terrible music and overpriced lettuce heads.

Bland Overpriced food in a Loud trendy setting

This is not the place for a great meal. The excessively loud music bars any conversation. The steak was bland (as if not at all marinated) but cooked well. The truffle fries were bland in flavor as well. The asparagus was cooked well but was again only average. The desserts from the birthday cake to the flourless chocolate cake were laughable. The ice cream dessert was 3 mini ice cones --complete lack of effort. Save your money--there are better meals to be had in NYC -- and for a fraction of the exorbitant price for what you get. The trendy atmosphere is not enough to compensate for overpriced "average" food.

I came here with a bunch of friends the other night, and we shared a bunch of appetizers, an entree, and sides. We absolutely loved the crab salad, shrimp rice krispies, beef short ribs, truffle fries, and mac and cheese. The food was so decadent! The service was fantastic, the decor was beautiful, and I recommend this to anyone who wants a special night out!

Saturday night

I heard great things about this place and decided to give it a try for a birthday dinner. The hostesses, although not rude, would certainly benefit from a charm class or two. We arrived early to have cocktails at the bar where they charged me for the blue cheese olives in my martini- so gauche- then sat us a half hour late for our reservation. Our table was cramped and noisy enough that I had to continuously ask the server to repeat himself. He was patient and knowledgeable although they were out of two of the bottles of wine I tried to order. Thankfully the food was great and worth the wait. Didn't stay for dessert and would definitely go back. Make sure you if you check your coat, you get the right coat back.

STK could not make me feel any cooler to live in NYC. I took my wife and sister in law out for their birthday to STK. The decor is absolutely amazing. It is one of the nicest looking restaurants I have seen in NY so far, and I have been to some of the great ones. Our server was very attentive, knowledgable, and made great recommendations. The food was also very good, although not as spectacular as the decor. The Shrimp Rice Krispies starter was very good and unique. Our steaks were good, but we've had better at BLT. Our sides were ok, I have had better parmesan truffle fries at Bette. The mac and cheese side was very good. Dessert was a warm chocolate smore which was also very good. Overall a great dining experience.

I've been there a few times with friends, and I have to say when you're eating there the service is outstanding. It feels like you have an entire staff waiting on you. Plus the decor is very trendy and the people are too. The fireplaces in the columns are a great touch (I've only been during the winter, not sure if they are going during any other seasons). Would recommend to anyone looking for a trendy restaurant with lots of energy. Be prepared to drop about $100+ however. Oh, yeah and the food is fantastic too.

Great Great Restaurant

STK was one of the best restaurants I've eaten at. I have been on many corporate trips and have eaten at a fair amount of 4-5 star restaurants. This restaurant was recommended to me by a work colleague who grew up in New York. I was looking for a "sexy restaurant with just as much appeal in the surroundings as there would be on my plate". My boyfriend of and I came here before New Years to celebrate the holiday and our 3 year anniversary. The tuna tartare was the best I ever had, lamb chops and pepper ribeye steak (on special that night) were tender enough to cut with a fork and beautifully plated. Do yourself a favor and try the dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives or the strawberry martini made with real puree and rimmed with graham cracker crust. Our server was very attentive to our needs, but not overwhelming and persistent/annoying. Hostesses were polite, and initially sat us, then moved us to a more comfortable location. Coat check was friendly and prompt. You get what you pay for. Quality and excellence both to the eyes and pallette.
