This place has the best steak in the city! I don't know what the others are complaining about below. The service is friendly and attentive. Porterhouse is the only way to go. Sides are also good, but a little small.
Great Steaks – I was a big Luger's fan and still am, however after going here the last few times for steaks I no longer want to take the trip into Brooklyn. To be honest this place is just better then Lugers, food wise, service wise etc.....
Walked Out - Shameful Treatment and Disgusting Food – Horribly snobby and rude service. The food was disgusting. My Wolfgang salad was room temperature, nothing was crisp and fresh like a salad is supposed to be. The waiter does not know what a caipirinhia cocktail is. My husband likes his lamb chops well done, and they came out completely red on the inside, blood was still oozing out! When he sent it back to cook further (which should not even have to happen to begin with – Del Frisco’s, Prime Rib etc, they all know very well, what well done means when they serve us our food), the dish came out with the chops completely burnt and charred on the outside, and still red on the inside. They just popped it under the broiler. They serve you by plopping your chop on your plate, they spilled grease all over our table when serving both times! There is nothing high quality about wolfgangs besides their prices and their arrogance. We called the manager and he just tried to prove us wrong, while staring at the red chop. He was raising his voice at us, outrageous!! I asked him if the plate looks like it is worthy to charge 36 dollars for, he was speechless, could not even say yes. The food looked like trash, tasted like trash, and the service was absolutely disgusting. Mistakes happen everywhere, so we could look beyond that. It is the attitude of the staff and manager that sealed the deal for us in deciding to never set foot in this place again. Never going back, and letting my circles know. Bunch of amateurs.
People are far better of at the Mac Donalds a few blocks down, where you still get service with a smile.
I love it! – I've never had a better steak in my life! After my first visit there I compare all steaks i eat with the one I had at Wolfgagng's. Nothing came close so far.
Cold hearted – Never seen anything like it.
We had 7:00 pm reservations. One person in our group is elderly and currently undergoing cancer treatment. At 7:45, we were still waiting for our table, standing in the lobby. I spoke to the hostess twice, trying to find out when our table would be ready, and pinted out that one of our guest was very ill and couldn't stand for long periods of time, she never gave us an answe. After waiting for an hour , we decided to leave, at which point the manager looked at me and said, "you cant wait for two minutes?". I said no and he rolled his eyes at me.
Won't be going back anytime soon.
Poor service, rock concert noise – although the food was good, the service and athmosphere was anything but. We were a party of 5 and could not hear each other without screaming. The tables were so close together that I continued to be jostled by partons and wait staff as well, even after asking the wait staff to not bump me as they made their way through through the crowded restaurant. Our order was wrong, we had to ask to see the desert menu and had to ask for more coffee. there are many great restaurants in NYC, I'd find one where you can actually enjoy the experience.
Better than lugers for a fact – I used to be a regular at peter lugers steak house not any more 4 park avenue a popular resturant in nyc , me my self a european food critic i was a critic for spicy foods and restaurants now i am a steak eater freak i had peter lugars for quit a while in my stay at new york but a friend of mine at lugers told me to try wolfgangs " i went over to park avenue location it was amzaing i only oreded a lake filled martini and a steak for two i was utterly exposed to the taste , queit substantially equievlant but some how wolf gangs was a bit more lean and jucier maybe there grill or sauce i dont know but was phenominal ! BTW dont hesitate to try the delicious german patato with blue cheese god bless the taste
CANT ARGUE WITH THE BEST – I AM trully amazed after waitng for 2 hours for a table dam right worth the money and wait ! the sizzling buttery steak and not to mention for the amount of people that eat here maxed out and packed the service is outstanding yea sure the hostes forgot to check out on me and my wife after teh fact that there was a line of peopel wating for tables not to blame thougth the food was all well worth the wait and i ordered steak for me and 16 ounce filet mignon for my wife we didnt even finsih half way through at the left overs at home tatse even better god i wish i can have wolfgangs next door to me its would be great i live in PA :( and shooter is just one of those jelous poeple and wishes he had about 350 peoepl a night at a restaraunt :) like this
Historical Steakhouse – This Steakhouse reminds me of Peter Lugers but good thing is it is not in Brooklyn! They serve steak the same way and it tastes very similar too. The portion here is huge so we just ordered Steak for 3 although we have 5 people.
Their creamy spinach and their shrimp salad are both very yummy. The steak is cooked just right. It was sizzling while it came to our table. They do not have Peter Luger's steak sauce, which I think is definitely outstanding.
This will be my alternative for Peter Lugers when I don't feel like traveling to Brooklyn!
