Great Hidden Steakhouse – I went to Shula's this weekend for a show and had a great experience. It was a bit hard to find as its in the Westin hotel and has a small door on the street level to get in. It was rather busy but the service was still attentive. I ordered the cowboy steak and it was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. The lobster bisque was delicious too. The winelist was priced well with some good steakhouse selections. Didn't have room for dessert but I will definitely be back soon!!
Yummy! – promptly seated with reservations...food was delicious! ....ambience was ok....wait staff was attentive!
Wonderful experience – I surprised my husband with a trip to NY for his birthday. I chose Shula's for his dinner because he'd eaten at one in Chicago and had "the best steak he'd ever eaten". We arrived a little early for our reservation and were promptly seated. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. They acknowledged his birthday and even called the following day to see how our experience had been. We will definitely return.
Steak and a pigskin – Ok, it was a little odd to have them put an autographed football on our table with the list of beef written on it. Thankfully that was just for show :). the reall menu's followed shortly there after.
My wife had the filet and I had the Kansas city (new york cut with bone), and both were delicous. The 22oz Kansas city was cooked perfect and had great flavor, one of my favorite cuts and hard to find. The twice baked potato was flavorful and the broccoli was perfectly cooked. The bbq shrimp w/bacon was marginal.
Slightly overpriced, but with in reason still.
All in all, a great experience. George the busser really saved the day for our waitress, she should count herself lucky to have such a great assistant.
A meat lovers great evening! – My wife and I, from Houston, and another couple from Conneticut were visiting Manhattan for the weekend and I chose Shula's for dinner because I had heard that it was a good steak house. I can honestly say that we had one of the best meals we have had in years. We have some outstanding steak places in Houston and Shula's in Manhattan would give any of them a run for their money. Our service was excellent and we spent a relaxing, unhurried evening enjoying an excellent meal. Some of the other reviewers mentioned that they didn't appreciate a football on the table. We all thought it was a clever gimmick and entirely appropriate in this restaurant (if you want fast and boring...go to Out***k).
Average restaurant with below average service – I took my wife and parents to Shula's on 4/8/06 for dinner before a show. It started with a broken english host that myself and other patrions couldn't understand. Then, after waiting several minutes at the table, a broken english bus boy comes over and says, "The waiter is very busy and will be over later." We waited 10 minutes to place our order and 20 more minutes to get our drinks. I ordered the lobster and the presentation was horrible. It looked like the chef just took out a plate and tossed it on. No sides were included. So, for $100+ I got just a lobster on a plate. Wine list is also below average. Would definately not recommend. Charging high $ for low quality experience.
Better meal can be found elsewhere – We recently tried Shula's in the Westin Hotel for dinner. The food was EXTREMELY OVERPRICED for the quality (e.g., their $16.95 "Colossal Shrimp Cocktail" consisted of 5 medium-sized shrimp thrown onto a salad plate), and as another reviewer mentioned, we also disliked a football being placed directly on our dinner plates. The atmosphere was a bit pretentious (I suppose this was due to patrons who were paying $500/night to stay at the Westin Hotel), and the menu was limited and uninspired. There are much better (and reasonably-priced) steakhouses to enjoy in NYC.
Tacky Menu – When we sat down, our menu was on a football, which was placed on my plate. My friend and I thought this was very tacky. The service was slow and they did not have a lot of choices for the ala carte potato and veggie.
I would probably not go again.
Slow service - inadequate food – We went there 9-09-05 for a birthday lunch. The service was inattentive. It took nearly one hour to get out first course, and we had to ask several times what the status of the main course was. When I got my entree salad, which was $18.75 it came on a small plate and barely had any meat with it. I was very disappointed and will not go back.
Very bad experience – First off, I am a big dolphins fan. However, as a New Yorker, steak houses are a way of life. Me and my wife went to Shula's for our valentines day dinner. I realize that this isn't romantic, but she knew that I always wanted to go.
The food took extra long to come out, and when it did my porterhouse steak (their speciality), was WELL DONE. I asked for MED RARE. Furthermore, at the table next to us, the same exact thing happened to the women's filet. To top it off, as I was leaving, I walked by another woman who asked for MED RARE and got WELL DONE.
I wouldn't recommend this place to ANYONE in New York. Stick to Lugars, Palm, Homestead, Sparks, Benson's and S & W. Even Fins fans should stay away. Sorry Coach.
