From the moment you enter the Strip House the red velvet walls set the tone for a great dining experience. The steaks are perfectly cooked. The sides dishes (truffled cream spinach) are wonderful. Cannot wait to return.
Why so few reviews?

Three foodie tourists chose the original Strip House based on reading reviews of NYC steakhouses. Incredible crispy juicy steaks, delicious sides, huge desserts. Amazing history in the photos all over the walls. Only problem was we were on a table nearer the bar, where there are no tablecloths - plates sliding around while cutting up steaks. I was surprised that the goose fat potatoes were a bowl shaped lump of deep fried mash. But i guess that would be lower fat than chunks of potato fried in goose fat. Tasted delicious. It doesn't aspire to get michelin stars, but what steaks? For us, Strip House is our new steak benchmark.
Get the 20 oz Steak, Skip the Scallops
By ny10522 on 1/9/2012
If you are wondering about ordering the 20 oz stripsteak vs the 16 oz strip, donÂ´t. The 20 oz is definitely the way to go. Warning...skip the $17 scallop appetizer. You get TWO( !!!!) normal, fairly large sized scallops. We shared this app and the restaurant placed one scallop on a plate for each of us. I couldnÂ´t stop laughing until I realized that I paid over $10 (including tax and tip) for the one measly scallop on my plate. That I will never forget. Service was excellent and we were not rushed.
great time at "Strip Steak"

Just returned from dinner at "Strip Steak" . It was a perfect evening. The place was full. The energy was fantastic. The food was delicious. We enjoyed perfectly prepared filet mignon, creamed corn, creamy mashed potatoes and baked alaska. It was expensive, but well worth it. Would definitely visit again.
A Religous Experience

I love steak and the Striphouse did not disappoint. The waitstaff was very friendly. We were seated immediately. The bar had my favorite Scotch. Menu was expensive, but well worth it. I had the 20oz strip and my guest had the special of the evening, a bone-in filet, which was fantastic. I've never had anything so tender in all my life. We also enjoyed the black truffle creamed spinach and the goose fat potatoes. A wonderfull evening and a fantastic meal. I will be going back.
I had great time

Great place to go out for perfect steak and have relaxed and fun conversation. We ordered 3 steaks for four of us and different sides. Steaks were delicious, we could not have enough, wine was great and we had fantastic time. Of all sides, I was most impressed with the mushrooms, although they all were fantabulous. Service was excellent, waiter had everything under control and we did not lack anything. I am looking to return there with my friends and dates.
They don't serve steak, they serve NY Strip
By thebigguy on 2/27/2007
If you go here and don't order a Strip Steak (see restaurant name for a hint), you messed up. To me it's this simple: they serve the best NY Strip Steak in the city. You wouldn't go to Lugers for chicken - don't come here for anything but the Strip; there are plenty of other places to get sirloins, porterhouses and rib eyes. One important note: They season quite liberally with cracked black pepper and coarse salt. The only dinner companion that didn't agree with my "best of" assessment doesn't like black pepper - it's absolutely an element of the dish. Final recommendation: goose fat potatoes.

Perfect crisp crust surounds sublime perfeecly cooked steak. Everytime, they do it right. I cant stop going back, despite the price. Forget sparks, forget lugers.
...let them eat cake!
By Badpenny on 9/29/2004
Enough of the pretty penny prose self-promotion from the Striphouse owners. "luckypenny" lauds her cakes as super powers. "luckypenny" is Penny Glazier of the Glazier Group and 3P's cake co. The 3p's stands for Penny, Peter, and Pittmann. You wont need the gym; you'll need Dr. Pittman for lipo after eating those cakes! But, what a way to go.
