The dry aged New York steak I ordered medium rare was definitely medium well with not a trace of juice. The spinach accompanying it was very nice. At the top end of NY steak house prices you'd think they could turn out a good NY strip!

We really enjoyed the food at this restaurant, the steak was lovely but we were very let down by the waitress who served us, she was very unwelcoming & rude. The poor customer service we received has let the restaurant down due to this experience & we will not be returning.

No real complaints, overall experience was good. Was not a first rate "steakhouse experience" but food was good enough (so would not rate as a high value), as well as service and ambiance. There is a private entrance to the Garden, which might come in handy to beat the crowds. We had the filet mignon, rack of lamb, truffle fries... More

We went for dinner before attending a concert at Madison Square Garden. I had the baked clams and the "Herb Marinated Flat Iron Steak". The service was very good, the clams I would not bother with again but the steak was alright. Prices were a bit on the high side, but it is a great location if you will be... More

This was a spur of the moment decision. I had planned to eat at legendary steakhouse Keens but NYC is a walking city and after I picked up my concert tickets, could not face walking any further, so I decided to give this place a shot… I checked inside… But they did not have any seats for a solo person…...

I love this place. It is extremely convenient for trips up from Philly. But this time, it seems to be slipping. 7 pm reservation and they were out of bone-in new york and the strip. Disappointing

We made a reservation here because of the location to Madison Square Garden. We were looking for fine dining for dinner and Nick & Stef's delivers. White tablecloths, comfortable and stylish chairs, attractive decor, and attentive wait staff all makes for the right setting.

Very over rated. Over Priced. Had better for less. Service wasn't good either. Had the petite filet 39 add Mac and cheese 12 add potato 9, so now we're at 60 bucks not to mention soft drink 8. So for me it was a loose loose here. Go down the street for a better meal.

We went to Nick & Stef's following The Cure concert last month. The restaurant is literally inside Madison Square Garden which means it probably won't be the cheapest and I was leery of how the experience would be. However, the food was very good - my branzino was lighty and tasty and the sides were all delicious. Moreover, the service... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
