It was a while from last dinner at Wolfgang and the situation is worse. The prices increased while the quality (and the quantity) dropped. We were 2,me and wife, and we had the porterhouse for two and as side the sauted mushrooms. The fillet part of steak was made of 3 (three) small pieces, unbelievable !! We cannot pay 114 $ (plus tax , plus tips) for this quantity of meat. The sauted mushrooms (once upon a time excellent) were dry and burned. The dessert, a cheese cake, instead was super. Service ok.
We don't return.

Hands down, best steakhouse ever!!. I know that sounds far-fetched since we've been lucky enough to have eaten at practically every well-known steakhouse in NYC, but this place was truly special. My former favorite was "Delmonico's". First, the atmosphere is average, BUT, the service was phenomenal (all waiters here....gotta love old school) and of course the "PRIME" steaks were delicious and cooked to perfection. My husband had the bone-in rib eye and couldn't finish it (which he normally does elsewhere). I had the filet....charred crispiness on the outside, buttery soft inside. Also, we ordered one of their house specialities - German potatoes (chunky style hash browns w/sauteed onions), and creamed spinach, both superb. We live in CT now, but can't wait to return when we're back in the City. Oh....and the apple strudel was even better than ones we've had in Austria and Germany. Just unreal!!

I don't even remember how many times we've eaten here among other locations. This one is our favorite in NYC.
Made a 10:30 reservation. Showed up at 9:30, seated at 10pm. Very happy with that....we would have waited till our specific time. Very crowded, but it always is. Because it is THAT GOOD.
Ordered a great bottle of wine, porterhouse for 2 (rare and perfect), the bacon (always amazing), and the ice cream sundae (MMmmmm). We always order the same thing and it's always absolutely fabulous!

We don't order "sides" after our first visit, because a person can only eat so much and we have to have dessert!

An excellent steak and really good German potatoes and onion rings. Service was a little indifferent and it’s all very expensive. Still- an exceptionally good steak. The Porterhouse was fine for 3 of us as it’s huge.

Last night we went to the location on Park Avenue. We had dinner reservations for 7:45. Our table was not ready when we arrived and we were told to go to the bar. The whole area around reception and in the bar was loud and shoulder to shoulder with people. This was a very uncomfortable atmosphere but we decided to wait it out. When we went back to check on our table the hostesses were rude. We still were not seated by 8:30. This restaurant clearly over- books their tables. Many of the patrons were over-served while waiting on a table. Eventually a fight broke out and someone fell into a table. At this point we left - just as the police were pulling up! Stay away! These people have no idea how to run a fine restaurant.
