My first experience at Uncle Jack’s was fantastic! The food, service and overall vibe of the restaurant was pleasant. The waiter was prompt, the food didn’t take too long. Overall quality of the food was excellent! We were all blown away. I would love to return to this establishment to treat someone else for a special occasion. I believe they would love it as much as I did.

We felt lucky to get a 6:00 reservation. Our food was fantastic, the wine selection great, and the restaurant vibe fun. I would recommend and would return if we are in the area again.

We have been to Uncle Jack's before and felt it was the best meal we've ever had. This time was a different experience and it was disappointing. My filet was very undercooked (I ordered medium and got the lightest side of medium rare). Then instead of recooking, they just put the pieces in a pan to cook more. This left the filet well done, medium well, and in one tiny spot, medium. I couldn't believe they would send it out like that. They did take it back again and recook with a new piece. The cauliflower that I normally love was barely roasted so it didn't have that beautiful dark color and depth of flavor. I know that it was off because the table next to us had an amazing looking plate of it. Ours was bland and stringy. Bread, caesar salad, and dessert (mousse) were delicious. Service was very good. It was extremely loud in there and in order to talk both people had to lean forward to the middle of the table, or shout. Neither of which were pleasant. So overall the visit for me was a 2 star but I upped it to 3 because I know they can do better.

As always the food was superb.
I am a little ashamed to say that my girlfriend likes her steak well done but they always manage to get mine rare and hers out at the same time.
The staff is great.

This will most likely be my last trip here. Took my girlfriend out for Valentine’s Day. We were seated by the front of the restaurant. Our appetizer’s were very good. We ordered the maple bacon and shrimp scampi. We had no issues or complaints with that course at all. However, when our main course came we ran into one very big issue. By this time our red wine was colder then my ice water and i could barely feel my feet. The area of the restaurant was freezing. This became an issue with our main course. 2 bites into the mashed potatoes, asparagus and bone in filet mignon and it was beyond cold. The waiter actually brought it back to be warmed up. But how many times will i have it warmed up? After 2-3 bites it felt
Like it was fresh out the fridge. My girlfriend had a garlic butter sauce that wouldn’t even spread due to the steak being so cold. I had the Baconaise which due to the temperature was inedible, it looked like jelly. The waiter did his best and his service was on point. But they shouldn’t have tables that close to the front of the restaurant. The women seated to my left and right had their jackets on the entire meal. Ruined what should have been a very special occasion.

Uncle Jack’s was the perfect place to have dinner on my first night ever in NYC! They accommodated us even though we were delayed, kept our luggage behind the desk, and were very polite. The wait staff was friendly and timely, and the food was amazing!!

As usual Uncle Jack's did not disappoint! Had reservations and had to call to hopefully change the arrival time. We were in gridlock traffic from LI to NYC! Although we arrived an hour later than our reservation, and it being Valentine's Day, we were graciously accommodated in a lovely booth for our party of four!
Thank you for a delicious meal......

Got to the bar at 5:40 Thursday night for a 6pm seating. Bartender recommended Angel Envy Rye..and it was a winner. Advised the hostess that my dinner partner was running a few behind schedule...no problem. The waiter Tony was polished, affable and knowlegeable. Went with the parmesan oregano topping for the hot house baked bread, grilled octopus, oysters Jackefeller, Porter for 2 (Medium) with creamed spinach and garlic mash...Boom! All winners. Great experience overall and Tony is the man!

Excellent meal and service once again at Uncle Jack's. Not inexpensive but overall worth the price as the food and service are high quality. One of my favorite restaurants to dine at in mid-town for a great meal when I'm there on business.

the service was horrible. ordered bread (that you have to buy) 20 minutes later we are told the kitchen is out of baked bread, so the bring some rolls. it was another 25 minutes to get our appetizers, one of which was luke warm. it then took another 30 minutes to get our mains with luke warm fries and one side we sent back because it was cold.

My favorite steak restaurant in NYC. The food is awesome and steaks are always cooked to perfection. I gave it a 4 because the side portions were miniature. They used to be played that you can share and now they went to miniature cast iron pots the size of creme brûlée’s cups. They were individually sized and not for sharing. Good thing we order 4 or 1 for for each person. Plus they started charging for bread.... I was surprised by that. $60 for a steak and you can’t even get free bread.

Second time I've been here in the last 5 years . The first time they practically rushed me out, food was ok so decided to give it a second shot.
This time the waitress did not know how to explain any of the dishes I asked about all she would say that we would like them ( not so true) , the steak was cold , the grilled octopus was not that good either & they put us upstairs very cramped place.
I'm surprised this place is still open after this long!
I go out to dinner a lot definitely would not recommend it .
Much much better Steakhouse's in NY !!!!

Food and service were good. At the end of the night they charged me $30 for using a credit card. For a bill over $1,000, that is just petty. Will not go back as a result.
