Our server was amazing! They didn’t have our choice of wine so he recommended something different and it was so delicious! We really enjoyed dinner!

Hands down , this is the best steakhouse I’ve been to. The drinks were on point and the Filet Mignon literally melted in my mouth. The wait staff was extremely pleasant and the aesthetics of the restaurant makes it seem as if you’re the only one there. Beautiful dinner date. I plan to frequent here in the coming months.

Went to an early dinner with my son and chose Frankie and Johnnys for the good reviews. We were greeted and shown to our table with a smile and was relatively quickly served our choosing of water. Menus did not materialize without me asking for them. We went with the sirloin, medium rare. At a steakhouse you would expect them to know their stuff, but steaks were served practically charred on one side and more medium than medium rare. Instead of a moist piece of simmering steak it was quite dry. Sides were really good, though and large enough to share.

Everything was good. Service was okay. We were not told the specials for the evening. I requested lemon in my water and did not receive any.
All in all, it was a nice night.

Better than we had expected for Valentine's Day as sometimes you can get caught in the romantic "crush." We were headed to a concert and the waiter wonderfully stepped up to serve us quickly, but we didn't feel rushed and the food (filet and sea bass) were incredible.

Super Saturday night in bar area of restaurant for dinner with awesome service from Spiro.
We started with a bottle of wine to accompany our porterhouse for two, which was cooked to perfection and paired with mushrooms and lyonnaise potatoes.
Warm chocolate cake for dessert before ending our evening with cocktails.
This restaurant is a gem!

Fun Friday night in NYC!
We started with a nice Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that paired nicely with our porterhouse for two along with the mushrooms and lyonnaise potatoes.
Nice live jazz music
Fabulous service by Spiro along with some wonderful after dinner cocktails.

My husband won the Friday forty ,Harry Potter tickets. It was a Wednesday so we had an afternoon show and an evening show. We picked the 37 street restaurant for our after theatre, before theatre dinner. What a wonderfully inviting space. We were shown to our table and ordered a bottle of wine. A Caesar salad was our shared appetizer. Dinner was the porterhouse for two, spinach with oil and garlic and an order of French fries extra crispy. Everything was delicious. Because we had the second show and couldn’t bring leftovers into the theatre we had to eat everything. No problem. Just so I didn’t fall asleep during the show I had a cappuccino. Yummy

The servers seemed busy and inattentive. They took forever to take our order. The server assigned to us seemed too busy so they sent someone else after I’d to ask twice for someone to take our order. When I reordered a drink they forgot to get it, when I reminded them they brought it in a glass covered with water droplets all around the rim like someone just washed it but was in too much of a hurry to wipe it. I was expecting much better service. The food was good though. It seemed we had two servers and we were not an important client for them last night.

Great vibe - lots of energy. Really great ambience. But the food was disappointing. Both of our steaks were overdone. My medium rare rib eye was medium well; my husband's medium well filet was well done. Very disappointing considering the price of these dry aged meats. The sides (potatoes lyonnaise, fried onions and creamed spinach) were average.
