Not the Best Steaks, But OK

The good news first: Strip House was good. The bad news: Strip House was good... and that's it. For a place bent on satisfying hungry carnivores, Strip House comes up shamefully short. The interior is fun...but also a bit cheap looking. In fact, the entire vibe is cheap--and way way overpriced for the value. I ordered the strip steak. It was cooked all right, but the meat was a bit rubbery and--I dunno--not organic, grass-fed? Maybe there is something to that whole thing. My co-pilot ordered the filet and it was way overcooked. Bottom line: for $45 steaks, go somewhere else.

An adult environment, with considered service, great decor, flattering lighting and above all, meats for unrepentant carnivores. Leave room for dessert though!

An orgasmic experience (for your tastebuds)...

From beginning to end, this was truly a pleasurable dining experience. Upon walking in, you are enveloped by the decor - an interesting mix of classy and sexy. You just feel cool. True to its name, the steaks (the rib chop was excellent)are as good as they come in Manhattan. But it's OK to stray into the specials...my date's venison was out of this world. You should sample the side dishes, especially the black truffle cream spinach, the lobster bisque and the goose fat potatoes. The dessert takes the cake...literally. The 12-layer chocolate cake is sinful -- the best I've ever had. I recommend sharing as the portions are quite healthy. The service is attentive and very knowledgeable about their menus (both food and wine). Definitely pricey, but it's worth treating yourself at a place like this...

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.

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.

They don't serve steak, they serve NY Strip

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.

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.

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.
