Steakhouse
K Rico in New York City is owned by Tommy Greco and Christian Tanno.

Tommy & Chris met each other on their very first day of kindergarten at East Brook Elementary School. During extensive travels throughout Latin America, they became enamored with the diverse cuisines, cultures and flavors from many lands, and wanted to offer an authentic experience based on these culinary and culture adventures.
Serving USDA Prime Cuts in a contemporary ambiance, K Rico also vaunts an outdoor patio with al fresco dining. A full service bar extends through the venue. A semi-private dining area affords intimacy. Seafood from Chile is hand selected, delivered, and served daily. Memorable service has rendered it a top-rated Steakhouse, well-illustrated in the reviews it continues to garner.

Located in Hell’s Kitchen, it is minutes from Times Square/Broadway Theaters. And that the kitchen stays open till 12am is a plus.

    The food was excellent and service was good. The only negative was the fact that we don’t drink alcohol and the server acted very annoyed when he tried to sell us drinks and we declined. He even said “wow”. We understand this isn’t the norm but it should be about what the customer likes.

    During our visit to New York we knew we would be celebrating our Birthdays and Anniversary so we wanted to celebrate with a nice dinner. K Rico was our choice and it did not disappoint. Service was exceptional, as was the service. The Food was off the hook. I had the Rib Eye and was so tasteful it did not need the chimi chirri sauce it came with but that was good too. Don't forget the desserts, you'll be sorry if you do.

    A delicious meal accompanied by an equally delicious red wine. Meal was a bit pricey but wonderful. The staff looked after us well and spent some time explaining the diffent cuts. We opted to share a steak on account they were so big. Recommended

    Overall not the best experience. Our waiter seemed very uninterested and like he was barely listening. A dish was missed from our order which finally arrived when we had pretty much finished eating. For a high end expensive steak house, I wasnt asked how i would like my steak cooked and it came well done. However it still tasted good, and my partners plaintain encrusted cod was fantastic. I think this is a good restaurant but we just had a bad experience due to the service, I'm sure with an attentive waiter this could be worth the money.

    Visited after seeing MJ on Broadway. Was just a short walk from the theatre. From the moment we entered until we left (stuffed and satiated) we received top notch service. Our meal was outstanding, cooked to perfection, served piping hot and still sizzling on its' platters. Presentation of the meal confirmed the chef prepared our meal with care. I just happened upon this when looking for somewhere to dine post Broadway. K Rico proves that hidden treasures and surprises still exist in NYC!!

They just know how to do it at K Rico, perfect service and a super friendly hostess Leigh, just an all around great night. Highly recommend!!!

    Was late for my booking due to other reasons, the restaurant can accommodate straight away as the restaurant was actually quite quiet on Sunday night. Food is average, ordered bone in sirloin steak, slightly over cooked as not really medium rare. Also ordered roast rod, it’s okay, nothing special and the K Rico chopped salad is too salty. Overall okay but won’t visit again as have better options in the area.

    We spent a lot of money here and found the service perfunctory. The waiter had a lot of tables and we found ourselves waiting a lot. Three of the desserts we ordered weren’t available; one because it took 15 mins and they said it was too late to order (ie they needed our table).

    We have been to K Rico for our anniversary for the last 3 years and it is always a great experience. They greet you with a warm hello at the door and immediately take care of you. The Maitre D is knowledgeable and very pleasant to speak with. I will be coming back to this restaurant as long as ownership does not change!

    It’s was just an amazing experience, the minute you walk to the door the hostess treated us beautifully. We were celebrating our anniversary & this was our first time here. The bartender came to explain to us the meat cuts and everything about it. They had a variety of options & the dry meat is AMAZING! So tasteful and more savory then the regular mind you they both were just great. We got empanadas for our appetizer and just fantastic. A salad as well & baked potatoes to go with the steak. Just a wonderful experience . A 4.8 stars
