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.

Best Steakhouse, Best Service
By Donatella4 on 3/11/2003
The steaks would make a grown man cry, and the service is phenomenal. Professionalism at its finest. I had to compliment manager Francesco Grasso's impeccable service!

Service is impeccable and the ambiance is wonderful. And it doesn't hurt that the steaks are top of the line.
When Steak Sizzles
By mlinczyc on 3/12/2003
An adult environment, with considered service, great decor, flattering lighting and above all, meats for unrepentant carnivores. Leave room for dessert though!

Is Chef Rene Lenger's 12 layer chocolate cake that now has an evil twin; the mile high cheesecake!!! I am defenseless against these two superpowers...

Head chef Rene L. should be given more credit for taking this hip place to the top of the New York Steak house scene. The Steaks are great. Best secret is the seafood dishes and be sure to save room for dessert.
Hottest,Hippest and Best in NYC
By michaelNYC on 3/27/2003
The Strip House is truely a cut above the rest. From its great decor to its excellent and perfectly excuted menu that Rene Lenger and staff put out flawlessly night after night. I have never had a more enjoyable meal in my entire life. The waiters are attentive and profesional . The Strip House is better then any of its competiton. The Strip House is the new wave from its inventive menu and creative specials Rene Lenger and his staff are true masters of their craft.This is the only place to eat prime dry aged beef in my opinon. The food at Strip House is great, the foie gras torcheon is perfect so flavorful and buttery , the double porterhouse carved table side was chared to perfection and for dessert there's nothing better then the 13 layer choclate cake to end a perfect evening. The best restaurant in New York hands down.
The Best Steak Ever!
By rowan on 4/12/2003
I've been to just about every 'great' steakhouse there is in NYC, but none have ever impressed me as much as the Strip House. The ambience, service, decor, and attention to detail are perfect. Add to all that the most luscious food you can imagine, (I have honestly fantasized about their chocolate cake) and you have a true gem. The Strip House is not a restaurant, it's an experience.
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...
