If you love good beef, this is your place. Hardy portions, expertly grilled! The atmosphere was really cool and for once, in NYC, we weren't crammed in like sardines!

What a nice surprise, I read the reviews and decided to take a chance. I am glad I did. Everyone enjoyed their meals, steaks were of excellent quality. The bank vault room was a hit with our guests and it is incredibly convenient given it is right behind Penn Station.

Very pleased overall with our decision to dine here.

It’s in the basement, so the signal is not the best down there. Dishes were a little bit heavy, but the beef and all other ingredients are indeed with good quality.
Great dining environment and service as well!

The food was outstanding we had the Maryland lump crab cake for starter it was phenomenal. The steak was cooked perfectly with a nice crust on the outside and juicy in the middle. The desserts were really good also. The cocktails are really good here too.
The only bad thing I can say is that the waiter messed up our starter order and then also messed up our bill. That aside I would reccomend this place, its has a cosy feel and is also unique as its inside a bank vault.

Huge portions, which is obviously a plus however the main (which we shared between two people, which is what you are meant to do) was too much in portion size even for us and we eat alot. I didn't feel abit poorly the next day but that was likely because I forced myself to eat as much as I could. I'd recommend sharing this between 3 to 4 people. Other than that food and service was amazing

Best kept secret in NYC but, the word is getting out. Food is outstanding. Service is warm and welcoming. ....And, it's a really nice place. It's the old M & T bank Vault.
It's small, cozy and fun.

Very nice restaurant, pleasantly surprised. Met my wife for an early dinner and choose this place because it was close to Penn. The food was really good, very tasty and what you would expect from a NYC steakhouse. Our waitress was very attentive and always around. The ambiance was pretty nice, we sat in the main dining room as opposed to the vault (which is a pretty cool novelty) and tables were comfortable (they weren't on top of each other). Great find, great date night.

There are two separate areas, one is the vault, lined with deposit boxes and then there is the larger dining room which may be a little noisier. The vault tends to be quieter and more intimate. Service is efficient, friendly and good. The food is very good with the steaks and meat, obviously being the best choices. The wine list is good if a little on the pricey side. All in all this is a very pleasant place with good food and service, what more could one want? I think the unique atmosphere of the vault behind the hugs bank door adds something to the place.

We had table in the vault which was very cool, but the lighting in the room was horrible. Had no ambiance at all, better for business/social occasion than for dates. Friendly service, food came out very quickly.

Honestly, what a phenomenal hidden gem inside of Manhattan! I hate to give up my secret but this is too good to be selfish about. Usually when there is a cool or novel atmosphere, the food is compromised. I can confirm that my picky self of over 12 years in hospitality was blown away by the customer service, decadent food of every course, and the talent of mixology of cocktails. 2849/10 would take my parents here to flex on my Manhattan knowledge. If you can request Juan Miguel, do it!

We chose this restaurant because we wanted a nice steak dinner but wanted something that wasn’t the typical high end chain restaurant. We were a little leery but decided to go for it! The service, food and ambiance was all on point and we were not disappointed! It’s definitely a place we would recommend. Prices are reflective of the quality. Check this place out next time you’re in NYC.

Great place to get a Manhattan in Manhattan with a speakeasy vibe.

Wonderful hidden gem with amazing food and sizable portions. Service was spot on and we were also able to relax without feeling rushed as we had a 4 hour delay in between transportation. Started out with Piri piri dusted oysters a modern take on oysters Rockefeller which were delicious and a touch spicy. Also had the bankers bacon with roasted poblano peppers and julienne green apple.
We had the 5 spice duck with a cherry reduction and the portions were sizable and the sauce sublime. Also crime brûlée and cheesecake for dessert did not disappoint!

Had a quiet date night there, great location, easy to get too, nice small private elevator. Waite could have been a little more knowledgable but provided great service. I had the New York Strip medium rare, it was good but not great. My date had the petite filet, also medium rare, which was very good. The carrots are very good and unique to me. The asparagus was good but could of had better flavor. For dessert, we split a slice of the mascarpone cheesecake with a raspberry orange sauce on the side. The cheesecake was very good, near the center it was excellent but as you get closer to the outside edge it became a little heavier, still good though. We will definitely be going back again.

Was a Sunday evening at 7:15 Pm, second time there. We were sat promptly. Waiter greeted us and we were served warm bread, bottled water and wine. We shared a wedge salad and oysters Rockefeller at same time and very quickly. As a fine dining experience, it should have been separately. Both were very good. 15 minutes later our dinner arrived. We needed more wine but the waiter didn’t check on us for 15 minutes. We now ate what we could and were done eating by 8:00 Pm. We finally were served our second glass of wine after we were done eating. The food was very good, the fine dining experience was not.
