Steakhouse
With 4 decades of experience, Wolfgang Zwiener didn't duplicate an exceptional steakhouse, he improved on it to make Wolfgang's Steakhouse exceptional. The porterhouse steak for one, two, four or more, is an outstanding choice. The atmosphere, expanded menu & professional service will appeal to even the most exacting diners. Wolfgang's is pleased to add this location in the heart of Midtown East.

Arrived and was told that we had to order with 15 minutes because the kitchen was closing. Had to ask for bread which they weren’t Going to bring out because they were missing a type of bread. Bread came out and it was cold. Also ran out of wine options

I went with my husband and the servers were nice. We went quite early for a Saturday dinner because we had a show (about 5:00pm). There was only a few other tables. I felt it was rushed to place order for the place being quiet. The steaks were excellent, but pushed on us immediately after appetizers. The bacon app was fatty and I would probably skip it next time. The crab cake fresh.

The food was only surpassed by the service - a truly fine dining experience. The restaurant is a bit noisy - we were in a tucked away corner and still had difficulty hearing each other. But the food and service made it worthwhile. Highly recommended!

Wolfgang’s is an awesome steakhouse, but NOT last night. The service left ALOT to be desired; despite the restaurant not being full. Unfortunately this impacted the taste and quality of the food served. Our sizzling porterhouse fizzled and was not sizzling. The temperature was wrong and the staff was completely indifferent. They couldn’t have know since they didn’t come back to our table.

My husband always likes to celebrate his birthday at Wolfgang’s. Their seafood appetizer is wonderful. The menu includes steak for him and Chilean sea bass for me. We had a wonderful meal.

Really good food, but ridiculously too big portions. If everything including the prices were cut in half this would be an amazing dining experience. But as it’s NY and USA everyone leaves with doggy bags that (undoubtedly) go in the thrash.

The meat was cooked just right with the border of the meat somewhat simmered nicely which melted in our mouths. The crab cake was delicious and used actual crab meat, not a lot of like fried dough like other restaurants. But it was still bit dry and the sauce saved the appetizer. The lobster Mac and chese was awesomely amazing. We added a Tennessee Honey Whiskey and another bourbon drink for the entire stay. The atmosphere was calm and cool, the staff were nice and friendly which we also joked around. Would come here again since we are from SF and there aren’t any restaurants comparable to Wolf Gang Puck and it was the first arrival food of choice plus reserved ahead of time because of its brand and reputation. I’m a foodie and how’d I known about this place is from watching all seasons of Hell’s Kitchen with introductions to well known chefs from around the globe. Thank you for the experience.

I've almost gotten over Wolfgang cloning Peter Luger but as it's in the neighborhood, it saves me a trip to Brooklyn and I notice I've not been to Peter Luger (other than for lunch once) in years. Food is terrific and servers are great. The only thing is the noise........terrible. Overall, we went last night with one of our grandsons and had a great time.

Found myself comparing Wolfgang's to Peter Luger's immediately upon sitting down. Steak sauce, side dishes, (no tomato & onion salad?!?), and, of course, the steaks...! Overall, Wolfgang's is a solid high-end steak experience. The shrimp cocktail was a bit small (and only 4 pcs). The wedge salad was quite good with delicious cubes of quickly sautéed bacon.

The interval between our apps and the steaks was a bit too long but it ended up being worth the wait. The Porterhouse steak was delicious (perfectly cooked, buttery and tasty).

Wait staff was friendly and accommodating. Very enjoyable meal.

If you want steak and a good overall steak house experience, you will enjoy Wolfgang’s. It is an old fashioned typical steak house, but done well (no pun intended).

Food was fantastic. Service was sub par in terms of attitude and attentiveness. Recommended for Business and work functions. This location would not be a top choice for a date or celebrations as the ambiance is a little sombre.

I have had the pleasure of dining twice in the last month, once for lunch and once for dinner. My husband and i both chose the petite filet lunch special which was outstanding. For dinner my husband ordered the filet and i ordered the chilean sea bass. We decided that it was by far the best meal we have ever enjoyed. The filet was perfectly charred on the outside and as tender as butter on the inside. We give five stars out of five!!!
