I visited this fine dining location on St. Patrick's day in 2016. This was a business trip with an unplanned stop for dinner. What was amazing was that our group (8+) was seating in short order. The food and service were spectacular! I would highly recommend this fine dining establishment any time, including holidays!

My daughter and I stopped by for an early dinner after a walking marathon of the sites and scenes in NYC. Our salad was delicious and we were so grateful that our server mentioned that it could easily be shared between the two of us. I had prime rib which was average, but my daughter's Scottish salmon was absolutely divine!... More

My wife and I visited in early November and had a great experience. Couldnt fault or waiting staff. Food was excellent and the complimentary bottle of wine for a marathon finishes was a nice touch.

This is a really loud, electric, hopping "guys spot". 50% booze at a fantastic bar staffed with veteran NYC bartenders and 50% high calorie man food. Plan on shoulder to shoulder crowds with long waits, and excellent food once you finally get it. Great servers who understand that you are NOT in a hurry, and I hope f-bombs don't offend... More

Wollensky's Grill has the best steak this side of Texas. It melts in your mouth! The sides were also delicious. The wine list was adequate and they have a full bar. The service was fairly good, about standard for NYC. Decor was nice and the atmosphere was great. We really enjoyed our visit and will definitely visit on future trips... More

We went to this restaurant on a busy evening during the week for dinner without a reservation. We were asked to wait at the bar and got a table for two after 15 minutes wait. We asked for a recommendation for meat and ended up with a NY cut sirloin steak. That with macaroni and cheese and asparagus was delicious!... More

I love Wollensky's grill and have been going here for many years. It's where my wife and I had our first rendezvous in New York. She flew down from Boston and met me here at the bar. The bar is wonderful, warm and friendly with great service and great selections. Whether you dine in, take a table outside, or sit... More

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.
