Drinks at the bar were great. Food was excellent. I loved the Filet Mignon. Our waiter was a little stiff but the rest of the service was excellent. I highly recommend this place.

Appetizers and sides were good, burger, boneyard and wagyu strip were very good. The $150 Yabba Dabba was very chewy. This is the second time we got a bad one. Taste was good but way too difficult to chew. I’ve been to Jacks many times and the last 2 times we had the same issue.

The server (Giovanny) is friendly and efficient. The food tasted fresh and all five of our meals were served timely to the correct temperature. The staff is friendly and they seemed happy to celebrated my daughters birthday. The ambiance is festive and classy. It always is a great experience at Uncle Jacks!

The 100 old day steak was definitely not worth the price ($130/for two). The wedge salad was just all right.

Everyone at our table loved the food. We were seated in a smaller room with another party which kept the noise level to a moderate buzz. A relaxed atmosphere.

We had the best time. We dined in between parts of Harry Potter on Broadway and we had fast efficient service without being rushed. Our 7 & 9 year old daughters enjoyed pasta and French fries and I enjoyed the 8oz filet. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned. I will 1000% go there again!

Food at best was below expectation , i ordered Branzino, which was clearly frozen & fried, as opposed to being a fresh piece of fish, which i would have expected.

First time in New York, the hotel recommended Uncle Jack's
The worst waiter ever with a poor attitude.
Steak had no flavor and the spinach was cold.

We booked this reservation for a nice anniversary dinner. We have never been here before and we were expecting a wonderful steak. Our steak was under cooked and it was taken back and re cooked but no apologies were offered. If a restaurant claims to be a steakhouse and charges upper-scale steakhouse prices then they should cook the steak accurately on the first try and take pride in the steaks they deliver. The staff was borderline rude. We noted that we were celebrating our anniversary and there was no mention of the occasion. The bathrooms were dirty and out of paper products. And then you have the credit card surcharge. The whole experience was tacky, rude, and disappointing. We will not be returning or recommending this restaurant.

The manager was very nasty, did not want us changing tables we were there at 4:30 in the afternoon. There was only 4 other people there. And we were gone by six. Very uncomfortable
