Even if I get paid.. never go back
By Kikinoou1201 on 5/3/2010
First and last of all, service sucks. Sucks, the worst ever in my entire life in NYC of 13 years. Tried most of "fancy" "hot" restaurants in NYC, ok, bar is packed, somewhat classy, good location, something to check out I thought. My friends were not too hungry, so decided to share bigger sized steak, they split it to two, served in two plates, things seemed to be ok.. until the size of the steak was super small (It wasn't HALF of what the steak itself would be) we politely asked, because it was obvious, just saying "each portion looks too small". Floor manager, almost laughed "U guys SHARING steak?" you get the message? He wanted to get away with it, by trying to make us feel bad...(?) about sharing steak, who cares? We were 4, ordered 3 main courses, is it THAT funny? He kept being SOO rude, over "why are you sharing" to "well, if you want bigger piece, you should order another", to "don't know what you want me to do". SO we asked for Manager, he apologized, but the rude guy never did. He, white mid thirty, shorty was the reason we all left, without eating anything, after waiting 30 minutes to get a table. Oh btw, yes we did have reseravtion. Conclusion: Rude restaurant like this, should not survive in NYC. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE where they serve great steak, with great service.
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.
Quality of the food not worth the price
By amybrill on 1/23/2012
I used to love this place. But the quality of the food has really fallen off. Your money is better spent elsewhere. Whenever I'm in the neighborhood I like to have a drink at the bar but they make it very difficult to just get a snack. It's really too bad. I had the worst time trying to find something on the menu I wanted to eat. And when I ordered the fish it came out completely overcooked and room temperature. My friend got the truffle macaroni and cheese, as we were just looking for something small. So not worth the price. And truffle oil. Really? I have eaten here many times and have ordered the steak, a NY Strip and was so disappointed I never want to have steak there again. The bottom line is there are just so many places to get a good steak in NY I don't see how this place can stay in business much longer.
Why so few reviews?
By irc on 1/27/2013
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.
