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.

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!!!

Solid steakhouse with typical waiter service that some may find brisk and dry which is only the norm for the place of this caliber. The steak prepared to perfection. Well crafted cocktails. Will be back

Dinner was perfect. Great service and Wolfgang himself came over to our table to greet and have a chat, Nice seeing you and reminiscing about your days serving the "Schlagg" lol. Porterhouse for 2 was excellent... a 10 and ranked as one of the best steaks I've ever had, Shrimp cocktail and Colossal crabmeat cocktail to start were just perfection. Streak fries topped off a perfect dinner. Bravo Wolfgangs

I've been to a lot of steakhouses in NY, and this is by far my favorite. Their porterhouse is consistently perfect every time I go, and beats even Peter Luger. That alone would keep me coming back, but everything else I've ordered off their menu has been equally high quality too.

The meal was excellent. My one complaint is that you removed the NY Strip steak from the menu, and our portions were too big to finish.Also, it would be helpful to offer a petite filet mignon for those who prefer less meat and more vegetables in their diet

I have ordered a Ribeye medium and I have been served an over cooked steak
I have shared with the waiter in a very polite way if something had maybe gone wrong with my order and he replied to me that everything I had been provided with was absolutely fine.
He told that he was going to send the guy from the kitchen to me but nobody showed up till I was presented the bill which I have paid in full without any further comment and I have included a fair tip as well to make sure my sincere complaint was not absolute an excuse related to the payable amount.
That’s not really the type of service you expect from this type of restaurants.
Very sorry for such a bad experience

The food was consistently excellent and fairly priced for the excellent quality, but the waitstaff was mostly too busy talking to one another in a huddle to notice us or ask on any consistent basis if we needed anything. There was a delay until someone approached to ask us for our drink order, only approaching after we waved to signal someone. The same repeated for us to get their attention to order our apps and meal. Once the food arrived, the team served impeccably, but keep your waving hand handy and avoid this place if you're on a tight time deadline. Otherwise, the food is great and a gem that is less hectic or crowded than most other NY steakhouses.

The food was excellent. We were 8 for a birthday dinner and were at a table opposite the kitchen entrance. That was a negative. The other negative was the level of noise around us. It hindered cross the table conversation for us.
