Tables were cramped together waiter service overpowering by far and the food was nothing to write home about..We forgot to put a tip in with the payment and the head waiter asked us infront of everyone dont you intened to leave a tip i explaned that i thought it was in with the payment and give him$25 he looked me up and down and exclaimed IS THAT IT..HONESTLY
Nasty, confrontational service
By Maggie231 on 7/18/2008
When I asked the waiter if I could have my steak pink-- he became confrontational and arrogant and replied "we do not do medium plus". Really -- there are so many great restaurants in New York that are service oriented and serve good food. Save your self the money--- go elsewhere.
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.
best steaks in New York City

forget peter lugers this is the best steak in NYC and the sides blow away all the other steak houses. I've tried them all and this is my fav....

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.

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.

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.
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.
...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.
