“The decor is very unique and comforting with low, arced ceilings, ancient looking tile, and low lighting throughout the dining room.”
“He offered to buy me dessert - I told him we didn't want the entrees we were forced to order and dessert would not be necessary - anyway - we finished up with the entrees half of which were not eaten - and they sent us over a huge tray of dessert.”
“Wolfgang's boasts good steaks, a small but decent wine list, and an interesting dining room.”
“Once we were seated we found all the food totally mediocre (we had the porterhouse).”
“This is New York, the options are endless, avoid the poor customer service served up here.”
“Wolfgang's was a great place to have a bachelor party, but didn't fare as well for my wife's 30th birthday.”
“While the food was good, I wouldn't come back here because of the service.”
“The food is decent but absolutely not worth the hassle and poor service.”
“either way; not right for such a pricey restaurant.”
“The food was really good, but it took a long time for the food to come out after we ordered.”
Horrible Service: Enough to detract from the food. I had a reservation for 8:30 on a saturday. Everyone in our party arrived at 8:40. We weren't seated until after 9:30. The hostess and the manager barely even aknowledged our wait. While the food was good, I wouldn't come back here because of the service.
not as good as lugers, but convenient for a steak fix. i used to be a regular at lugers (went at least once a month). wolfgang's is basically an exact knockoff, though not quite as good. that means you get the brusque service, which is a lugers' hallmark. that being said, we always get great service at wolfgang's b/c we know the system ... order the bacon and tomato and onion for appetizers, steak for 2, medium rare (no matter how many people you have), cottage fries, creamed spinach, and then the hot fudge sundae w/extra schlag. i love that they are in my neighborhood and accept credit cards ... we waited about 20 min past our reservation last nite, which wasn't too bad (btw, you usually have to wait at lugers, too, unless you're a regular). of course, it helps to order a couple bottles of expensive wine, too.
Steak for 2 3 and 4.
It's not the first time we dine here. We've been coming to wolfgangs for a little bit over a year now and can't get enough of it!!!. We were there last night. The place was jamming there was no sign of a recession here. We waited a couple of minutes since the Host seated us promptly. And the the party started. This is a great place to feel a real NY steakhouse experience.The waiters passing by with the amazing smell of sizzling steak.... UHMM couldn't wait.so we let our waiter order the usual for us:seafood,bacon and tomato and onions with roquefort cheese on the side. let me say that this combination is out of this world! We finished all in no time. All of a sudden our waiters cleaned up our table mess and set us up for the good stuff.Steak for the table all of us ordered medrare except for my 2 secretaries they wanted well done. It all came out was perfectly cooked, all sizzling and buttery as always(even the well done steak) They always take care of us.The sides were the perfect match. They brought us the german potatoes,creamed spinach and onion rings(really crispy). We then had the dessert"Fantasy" wich is a selection of the desserts along with fresh fuit and the wonderful SCHLAG. Wow It was an amazing time and hope to be back tomorrow with a party of 12 people. They may be booked but they'll acomodate us for sure,they always do. Thanks guys for making this business deal dinner a total pleasure as always!!!!!!!!!!
You'll be seeing us more often now with the holiday season aproaching.
Best place for Real Steak. After a wonderful dinner at wolfgang's I thougt about my doctor and then i thought it was really worth the wait!! took a double dose of lipitor just in case. Of course there was a small wait of 30 mins but c'mon this is a hot spot.The bacon was delicious and the tomato and onion as well. We left some space for the steak.Since we ordered Steak for 2 we asked the waiter to take the bread away and so he arrived with the best steak in town. PERFECT MEDIUM RARE nicely charred and super juicy, creamed spinach out of this world and the crunchy and yummy german potatoes(i love the crispy part).The plate was so hot it still sizzled for a few minutes. We then had the cheesecake with the homemade schlag and then it was time to go( we had yankee game tickets) Absolutely amazing and we'll be back formore.Thanks Wolfgang.
Perfect As Always. For the past year I have met 2 friends once every month for a ritual luncheon @ Wolfgangs. We expect a perfect meal and that's what we get. The service is always friendly and professional. The steaks are prepared exactly as ordered and are among the best in the City. I would continue with the accolades but I'm on my way to Wolfgangs for lunch.
Dinner w/ JMP. good spot for work dinner steaks this is a test etc kjlkjkjkljlkjkljlkjjkjkjkjkjkjkjkjkjkkjkjlklkjlkjljlkjlkjlkjlkj
I had reservations and had to wait 20 minutes. The bar was very crowded and they stuck us by the front door with 2 children. It was very uncomfortable and quite upsetting.
Once finally seated, we placed our order. The service was good, but very unfriendly.
We ordered the rib eye, porterhouse for 2 and the tuna.
Both rib eye and porterhoise was good, nothing special. I've had bigger and better rib eye. The tuna was bland and boring, no sauces with it, just a hunk of blah looking tuna on a plate...my wife hardly touched it. Mozzarella and tomato- mozz. was good, tomatoes were hard and tasteless, obviously not ripe. Creamed spinach was bland and the german potatoes were burnt.
Overall- the food was not very enjoyable, the servicers need a lesson in being friendly.
Don't bother to make a reservation because they will make you wait anyway.
Head to other location in Tribecca.
Hard to believe the difference between this location and downtown.
If you want a great experience do not bother going here - head downtown.
Not only is the food prep better you get service with a smile
Worse service, combined with bad food.
I have never seen such a downright rude waiter in this city. Not at a nice steakhouse like Wolfgang's where you would expect to have a more attentive and professional service, when you see the Internet-side.
He rushed us, took our plates away when we weren't finished, and was practically throwing things around. No basic manners at all.
Our steaks were like coal. I ordered it medium and asked for it not to be blackened on the outside. The steak came rare, but blackened enough to have a charred taste. The steak itself isn't as flavourful and tenderly as I've had it at other steakhouses.
If you are in New York City and you are looking for bad to worse service, combined with bad food, than you have to go to Wolfgang?s Steakhouse.
Terrible Service, overpriced and rude.... What an aweful experience. We booked a table for 4 for Thursday night dinner. Since we knew it would be busy we confirmed the reservation the day before. My parents were coming into town and we wanted to treat them to a special night out - what a mistake to pick Wolfgangs...We arrived at 7:30pm, right on time for our reservation, the hostess frantically searched the computer system for our reservation. The restaurant was very, very busy. Lots of business folks relaxing after a stressful day, the bar was hardly approachable because of the amount of people packed around it. The hostess could not find our reservation and summoned the matredee about a solution, he was arrogant and didn't want to be bothered, he was too busy smooching up to his business clients. I asked him what was going to happen? He asked the hostess why we were here (clearly unaware of the situation) and was told again they could not find the reservation. He told the hostess to put us on the waiting list - my jaw dropped...I asked what had happened to our reservation - she quickly snapped back and stated that "someone" had made a mistake. No apologies, no regrets, nothing. We were just left standing there, I went back and asked how long it would take for a table and again she snapped back and said that it could take 30mins up to an hour, she pointed us to the packed bar and ordered us to get drinks and wait. This was unexceptable behaviour and I started to get annoyed. I asked her again why they lost our reservation and explained that my parents were visiting and wanted to enjoy a good steak in New York, she rolled her eyes and blurted out again that "someone" had made an error and that we were going to have to wait our turn. I turned around and walked out the door. Never again will I visit this establishment, or recommend it to anyone...
