Overall, the restaurant isn't bad but our waiter wasn't up to par. We dine out A LOT and we have both positive and negative experiences, most of which lies with our interaction with the waiter. Every restaurant owner should understand that the bulk of the customer's review is at the mercy of the waiter/waitress and hiring people who are incapable of connecting with customers is a huge problem.

The waiter slammed items on the table, reached over people, his tone at times was curt and overall, did not give us a positive experience. Since we were in a smaller section to ourselves (at first) We asked the waiter to turn off the A/C upon entry because it was so cold and we had a baby with us. Moments later we had to put the baby's coat on. My eldest daughter also asked to switch seats with me to avoid getting hit with the cold air.

It was our first time there, perhaps it was a one-off day but it doesn't leave us with a desire to return.

Monster ribeye for 2 is amazing, plus clams and carpaccio are a great way to start the meal.

Love this place. Obviously it isn't a cheap night out, but so what! The food is awesome and well worth it. We got the garlic bread, meat ball, and calamari as appetizers. They were all good but if you just get one I definitely recomment the garlic bread wow it was awesome and came with a delicious dipping sauce. I got the colorado rack of lamb for dinner, and we split multiple sides. The lamb was amazing. You get maybe 6 chops, and some mashed potatoes with a delicious sauce, I highly recommend. The truffle mac and cheese was amazing! I don't like creamed spinach so it's no fault on them that it wasn't my fave. We got the hash browns too but I would say skip that because a lot of the entrees come with a small potato side. Some come with just the meet so be warned. We got dessert and I highly recommend the creme brulee. My friend got the cheesecake and loved it! 10 out 0f 10 recommend and will absolutely go back there again for a special occasion or a treat.

I've been going to The Old Homestead for years and years and have to say in the last couple of years have been mildly disappointed. The service is just not what it used to be. We used to feel really taken care of when we went there; the waiters were REALLY friendly and attentive to our needs. This time, the waiter was nice enough but I I had to ask for the salt and pepper and a knife to cut the chocolate cake in half (we'd already asked for two plates) and we had to return a carving knife as it was very dirty. The knife was replaced, but with no apology, as if it were normal to spend a couple of hundred dollars and get dirty silverware. Before the cake, I had to ask the waiter to please clear the table (my friend is mentally ill and his place was fairly dirty.) The waiter simply cleaned up some of the debris and then put a placemat over the rest.

For me, one of the experiences of going to the Old Homestead, was that you could be assured that the waiter would really want to take care of you and be friendly at the same time; I'm sorry that I didn't feel that way this time.

Been many times and was one of first places I wanted to go after reopen. Sadly disappointed. Not ready to reopen. Crowded, no barriers between tables, had to reorder our drinks more than twice, slow service, steak inconsistent among the group. Too many great places I want to support in reopen. OH won’t be one of them going forward.

The oysters weren’t good, so the waiter took them away but left them on the bill. Everything was very rushed. They brought the food out before even taking our wine order. Once we were done with dinner, we still had wine left and the waiter kept saying “have a night evening” as to rush us out. It’s been awhile since we’ve been out to dinner because of the pandemic and they really didn’t make this a special birthday dinner. Not impressed - won’t be back.

We had a wonderful evening (company was amazing). However, despite direction/instruction...I had to remind the staff to bring a piece of birthday cake for my dear friend who we lovingly celebrated(clearly stated in my reservation). Also, waiter took barely touched lobster Mac and cheese after I asked (TWICE ) to please wrap it... not nice! Never returned with my Mac n cheese. Service is horrible!I If you spend over 1k they should wrap your Mac n cheese .. no problem! Right?

Beautiful old NY place. Couch seating was uncomfortable. Cushions weak, sinking feeling. Food was very good. Excellent service. My usual drink, Rob Roy was not good after second re-order. We will try again down the road... thank you.

I was so excited to try this place after hearing from other people. My fiancé and I love trying new restaurants and will pay for good food. This place just missed the mark which was disappointing. Way too overpriced for the quality of the food. The clams lacked flavor and had way too muxh breading, the steak was just okay for an $85 steak and I got seabass that was mediocre.

I’ve had the opportunity to try a lot of steak houses in NYC and Old Homestead quickly rose to the top of my list. The food was amazing, tasted truly homemade, and the service was unmatched. Amazing waiters, runners, and greeting staff. They made us feel welcome and like family. I don’t remember all of their names but Caesar was wonderful. No snobby vibe like at some other steakhouses in the city. I strongly recommend visiting.

The food was excellent. The service was good, but a little tired, almost robotic. He literally complained about the tip in front of the entire table. We gave him more $ but didn't like that he felt entitled to it.

Great old steakhouse. Some things great. Some things, not so great. Oysters tasted like they had be schucked earlier in the day (water logged) chicken, shrimp, clams, etc excellent. Service spotty. Still, a NYC original.

Took my son for a steak for his 25th birthday, always wanted to try Old Homestead. The NY strip was everything you’d expect from a top notch NYC steak house, and cooked to perfection. Drinks, apps and sides were delish as well. Ambiance is a little plain, but the service is traditional and top notch.
