Steakhouse
Founded by former Ziegfield girl Helen Gallagher and the colorful gambler and sports enthusiast Jack Solomon, Gallaghers opened as a speakeasy and steakhouse in 1927. At that time, the height of Prohibition, a good stiff drink and a great steak were hard to find in New York – except, of course, at Gallaghers.

New Yorkers come for the world-class cocktails and incredible steak – prime beef dry-aged for 21 days in Gallaghers’ legendary windowed meat locker. The combination of all-natural dry aging and cooking it to perfection over hickory coals makes for a steak unlike any other found in New York.

Gallaghers’ guests are welcome in a wide variety of attire – from elegant casual to business suits. We respectfully request that you refrain from wearing hats, sports jerseys, tank tops and shorts.

I had read so many reviews that I knew I had to book a table, it didnt disappoint one bit. The food was delicious, the portion size is huge and the friendliness of the waiters is outstanding. I shall definitely be returning next time we come to New York.

Great time and meal after the theater. Great traditional NY steakhouse. Wind got spilled on my wife and they were all over it with cleanup, apologies, offer to pay dry cleaning bill, and wrote down our bill. Handled perfectly. Has bee a long time family favorite ours when we go to nyc and will continue to make it a preferred spot.

Family trip to NYC. Fourth time visiting the city and we always make a point to eat at Gallagher’s. The food and service is outstanding, Don and Brian both made me feel like a priority, and we love the atmosphere. Please don’t ever lose the vibe of your restaurant!

I think it goes without saying that this is THE BEST steakhouse in NYC. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here this past Thursday night and we had an absolute blast. The service was impeccable, the food was beyond delicious, & the ambience is perfect. We will be back again soon

We had planned Gallaghers as a treat, thinking this would be our best meal in NYC. It couldn’t have been further from the truth. Our main meals were so poor that we didn’t stay for dessert. Overpriced and very average.

Not wanting bloody steak, we usually order medium but saw medium steaks delivered that were dripping blood so we requested med well, warm pink center. Meal was delivered an hour late, steak was very well done and Cold, lyonnaise potatoes were dripping grease. Everyone around us sent them back. Only beans were warm. Not servers error but the kitchens fault. Disappointing in a place we usually love. Off night!

All that you expect from a historic Manhattan steak house: high quality at a high price. Try it at least once.

Wir haben einen tollen Abend zu zweit verbracht. Gianni, unser Kellner war super - zuvorkommend, freundlich hat tolle Empfehlungen gegeben. Es war rundherum alles prima.
Wir hatten: ein Thomahawk-Steak, ein Sirlion-Steak, Zwiebeln, Spinat, eine Flasche Weißwein, je ein Espresso und einen Degistif
Der Preis von fast $400,00 ist schon etwas hoch, aber wenn man in NYC in so einem Steakhaus essen geht, muss Amann das einkalkulieren. Fazit: Ambiente, Service, Qualität der Speisen und Getränke- super.

We attended for lunch on 2nd December 2019. From the moment that we arrived the staff couldn't have been any more attentive. Victor and Robert looked after us. I have to confess this was true customer service. Having visited many establishments during the previous four days this was the epitome of customer service and restored my faith in good service. The restaurant was beautiful, lots of cherry wood and linen - proper dining. Our visit was more magical having snow fall outside.
I had the fillet mignon which was cooked to my liking, the garlic mash and spinach were just beautiful, accompanied beautifully with Gallagher's signature sauce. The lamb chops looked delicious too. We followed this with Key Lime pie which was amazing. The staff also presented my sister with a cake for her birthday, we didn't ask just simply altered them that we were coming for her birthday; we were both thrilled.

The number of diners we net was great each returning on account of their experiences previously or to experience the restaurant. The food, ambience and atmosphere were amazing, thoroughly recommended!

This place is amazing, just watching the waiters work is brilliant in itself... the service here is second to none and the food is Outstanding. The prime rib has my recommendation for the lose that like their steak still breathing... word of caution though... be cautious with the sides... they are huge, 1 side per couple is more than enough... we barely touched ours... 6 stars out of 5

We really enjoyed EVERYTHING. Our waiter Johnny made the night even better when he brought out a cake with a candle for a birthday dessert. Steak was delish, oysters GREAT and shrimp top notch. Definitely would go back for another special occasion.

We had tickets for a show and we wanted to stay close to theatre due to weather. I had dined at Gallagher’s previously & we decided to eat there. Our reservation was honored and we were seated in minutes. The servers were attentive without hovering. The prime ribs were beyond excellent, tender, perfectly cooked, and very large. We each ordered potatoes, one mashed(enough for 2) and one baked, also perfectly prepared. We were a little disappointed in the chocolate layer cake we shared, it was a little dry. Overall it was an excellent dining experience.

The food was good, classic steakhouse menu
We had porterhouse, oysters and tuna poke or tuna bowl don’t remember the exact name.
What we did not like at all, was the service. They were very rude and careless.
I wont return because of that

Absolutely perfect from start to finish. Fresh, excellent ingredients, inventively and deliciously prepared. Steak was awesomely flavorful and cooked to our specifications.
Serving sizes of the sides was large enough for four people to share - with leftovers which we couldn’t use because were at a hotel.
Typically brusque waiter but he and his colleague gave us outstanding service.
Definitely expensive but worth it for the great food.
