Experience is better than science!!!

The StripHouse is the best Steak house i have never visited in NYC.Walking up from the bar to the dinning room,you are fascinated by the beautiful decor mostly red with thousands of sexy pictures all over the wall.The service is done by experienced servers so that you feel really confortable. About the food,you cannot find a better steak anywhere in NYC;"THE DOUBLE PORTER HOUSE","THE RIB CHOP" and "THE STRIP SINGLE" are delicious with the "GOOSE FAT POTATO".Also , there is nothing better than ending a great night with the 12-LAYER CHOC. GANACHE CAKE. Finally,this is the opportunity to congratulate CHEF RENE LENGER for his experience in American & European food.Food at StripHouse is the result of a well done job.
Can't handle a crisis

We picked the Strip House for or annual XMAS dinner and when we got there we found people mulling around the entrance looking confused. We entered and were told there had been a fire in the kitchen. We could wait at the bar (at our expense)until the grill was "fired up". Estimated time varied depending on which of the 12 year olds you spoke to. No restaurant management was visible.I go to hamburger places that could handle it better than that! Stay away form the glazier group.

food was great, so was the vodka-watermellon and mint oil shot sent to us by the chef. i would say it is my favorite n.y. steakhouse and i have been to them all.
Tasty Food, But Too Toasty Temp.

It's hard to enjoy a steakhouse meal as you feel the beads of sweat draw momentum as they descend your torso. The night we went, the joint was seemingly typically packed, and it was uncomfortably warm. We mentioned it to staff, and a manager looking bloke told us that the air wasn't working that night and sorry. Thanks ... I think. Nothing was comped following complaint. Food was delicious, but place was uncomfortable.
...let them eat cake!

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.
This is unequivocally the best Steak in NYC

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.

Come on, now! The meat is by far NOT the best in NYC, the service is absolutely terrible, and the wait times are laughable. Reservations are just a built in excuse to spend more money at the bar.

The decor, a little tacky, but goes with the theme. Suprisingly roomy as from the outside, you seem unsure. The room just opens up as you walk past the coatcheck/entrance/bar. Our waiter was a little overbearing, almost snotty and pretentious, but I'll give him credit, he DID warm up at the very end. (But I must give credit to my date for that one.) The oysters on the half were great, everything else was mediocre. I left happy and satisfied, but not exactly knocked off my feet.

Not only was the food great, the service was actually equally as good!Server and busperson were very attentive (but not overkill) and on top of everything. One of the best dinners I've had in a long time. Would definitely recommend. I would return without a thought. Very pleasant experience. On the pricey side, but well worth it.
