I always wanted to eat here. I am a big movie guy so I wanted to see if this was amazing. It was good but not the best I have ever had.

Beautiful decor, wonderful service, great bar & very good food! This is always the case at Sparks. They have been doing it right forever so the experience is always first class and you will not be rushed. Although it's a "steak house", Sparks offers a wide variety of other things which is great for anyone who may not be in... More

We dined at Sparks Steak House on E 46th on 1/20/17. The restaurant is absolutely one of the finest dinning experiences we have ever had. We loved everything about the place including the excellent staff. We started with drinks at the bar, chatting with the two bartenders. We were escorted to our table and ordered the lump crab meat and... More

My husband and I and another couple went here for dinner. From the time we sat down to the time we left we had great service. I am not a big beef eater so I had the sea bass and it was wonderful! My husband had strip and he said it was delicious. They have an impressive wine list. Definitely... More

This is a true NY steak restaurant steeped in history and tradition. We had a wonderful lunch here, the service was great and the steaks absolutely perfect. The staff were very helpful with regards to choosing our dishes. An excellent wine list and we were allowed to relax and take our time over the lunch.

There are a lot of steak houses in NY, both the traditional/historic sort as well as the hip and cool. Sparks is definitely one of the former. Overall experience was good but not remarkable. The menu is very traditional steak and fish joint. Don't expect unique preparations - meat cooked to your liking. Sides choices are what you'd expect and... More

Best steak I have ever had!! I am a very picky guy when it comes to steaks. I have tried them all, and I am seldom satisfied. I therefore usually prefer buying dry aged steaks from my butcher and prepare them on my BGE. Sparks blew me out of the water! Highly recommended!

Sparks is FANTASTIC. The atmosphere is timeless. The decor is wonderful. The staff are incredibly accommodating, informative and ready to help in any way they can. We had a variety of cuts - however, I went with a rib eye with blue cheese - this was a few years back but I remember every bite! Also, all sides were enjoyed...quickly!... More

I hosted a high end event here with 45 people and every single one raved about the food. It's a little dated inside but look past that. I cannot say enough good about this place.

If you're in midtown and are looking for a good steak, Sparks is worthy of the short list. The decor is upscale but not uptight. The dining room is bigger than you'd think and the broad range of customers make it lively. I ordered the prime sirloin, black-and-blue. The steak came out just as I asked. There was a beautiful...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
