"I don't usually get lobster in a steak house but their summer lobster deal was too good to pass up! The lobster was deliciously prepared and presented- cracked and split open. Service was friendly and attentive. It's a tad touristy but that's what you get in that area."

Strip House Midtown at 44th Street brings all the Strip House signatures to a brand new bi-level space for lunch, dinner and private dining. Visit the new NYC location for a classic cocktail at the bar, or a full steakhouse experience. Experience the combination of charred cuts perfectly paired with decadent sides, in a siren red interior where old world glamour meets modern style and sophistication. Named a top steakhouse by Zagat and awarded four stars by Forbes, the namesake cut isn’t the only thing to marvel upon...walls are adorned with original Studio Manasse prints of 1930s burlesque stars.

"Went for restaurant week and this place was fabulous. Great choices on the menu, wonderful service and delicious food. The tuna was divine and the filet was delicious. The signature sundae is a surprising mix of sweet and salty and worth saving room for!."

"We went for restaurant week so maybe we got the B team but..... service was slow to start - it did eventually came up to speed. The soup course was delicious and very nicely presented, nice portion. We all had the pork dish and it was a bit salty but still tasty and again a nice portion- not huge but satisfying. Dessert was actually absurd. I had the watermelon, which constituted a child's size bite of watermelon (bite not slice) and a tablespoon of lemon sorbet. I was by no means still hungy but it was so tiny they may as well have not bothered. That all being said the biggest surprise was $6 for an iced tea- no refills. Really? Really."

Bobby Van's newest restaurant is located on 45th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue in the heart of Times Square shopping and theatre district. Two floors of dining inside with an outdoor cafe. Perfect for lunch or dinner, and before and after theater dining.

"BVs on 45th has a nice lunch menu and a diverese restaurant week menu for lunch as well. While it is a pet peeve that a steak house upcharges for a steak (petite filet)on the lunch menu- you can get the steak sandwich as part of the regular deal and it's a nice option. The salad is huge and the dessert is huge if not particularly spectacular (chocolate mousse cake- it's good- it's just not mind blowing). Service is quick and attentive. And the outside seating can't be beat for the neighborhood."

Voted "one of the Top 10 best steakhouses in New York City," Nick & Stef's is a masterful blend of ultra-stylish contemporary design and time-honored culinary artistry. Directly adjacent to Madison Square Garden on West 33rd St. at 8th Ave., it's the place to eat before and after concerts and games for succulent dry-aged certified black angus steaks, the freshest seafood and signature side dishes. <br />

"Nick and Stef's is a favorite- it's always excellent and always consistent. The summer lobster deals are a great way to celebrate summer in the city and the steaks are always perfect. Service is excellent. The rib-eye and creamed spinach are some of the best I have ever had- the wine list has some fun splurges as well as budget friendly choices making it the perfect spot for a real celebration or just a nice dinner out. Now that the scaffolding is finally down the ambience is more cheerful as well!"

"The food is good and that's what really matters- the pig out is a great split for lunch and the fried shrimp are light and tasty. Prices are reasonable given the theater district location and service is friendly."

Magical is a word thrown around a lot when discussing Tavern On The Green and one can’t help but feel magic in the air. Jim and David, architect Richard Lewis and landscape architect Robin Key, preserved the Victorian/ Gothic elegance of the semi-circular building; it is authentic, natural, elegant and sexy. It has been re-built to spectacular precision and the décor is of a grand farmhouse one might find on the property of an Italian Villa or a historic Hudson River Valley mansion.

"The ingredients are all there for this place to restore itself to former glory. Great location, beautifully restored inside and out. Service still needs to work out the kinks as does the menu. A little heavy with salt and a little pricey given what you get ( throw a scoop of potato on the plate. $12 for grits?). The wine / cocktail list is diverse and fair priced. I'd love to see a bar menu for the patio and a few simpler options on the main dining menu but overall I think Tavern is positioned to do what they set out to- be a destination spot for both locals and tourists, eliminate some of the fussiness of the old one and make it more accessible in general."

"At Bobby Vans 54th Street, you can expect the same great service and the same great food as our other restaurants. Tucked away in another historic restaurant location, (at one time this was the hang out spot for such stars as Frank Sinatra and the rest of the Rat Pack) there is plenty of history and untold stories behind these walls, if only they could talk. Conveniently located just east of Park Avenue and 4 blocks north of The Waldorf-Astoria, this is where you want to be. As you walk into the restaurant you’re greeted by our hosts and a large credenza filled with beautiful bottles of wine. Glancing to your left you overlook the spacious yet always occupied bar, where the bartenders know your name and have your drink waiting for you before you can even say hello. Separating the bar from the dining room is a glass window so you can see all the action of other diners enjoying their meals. The dining room has the good old fashioned steakhouse style with handcrafted wood walls, and F

"The steak (rib-eye) was one of the best I have had in a long time and we hit a NYC steak house very month if not more often. The sides however were lackluster and that is not acceptable in a place like Bobby Vans. The creamed spinach was flavorless and more cream than spinach. The Brown Betty apple pie was a pleasant surprise. Total disclosure we went on a groupon- so despite the disappointing sides the overall experience was well worth it and an excellent value. The steak portions are very generous including the filet."

Hi-Life Bar & Grill is one of the Upper Westside’s most popular and longstanding neighborhood restaurants (est. 1991). Hi-Life's 1930's decor is the backdrop for bar & grill classics like flame-grilled steaks and hamburgers, broiled and seared fresh fish specials, bountiful "Big Bowls" of pasta and entree salads, and last but not least a Sushi/Raw bar. (Hi-Life was the first NYC restaurant to install a traditional sushi bar in a non-Japanese restaurant setting in 1993. Expertly prepared sushi & sashimi at Hi-Life is a natural extension of the classic Raw Bar one might expect in our 1930's environment.) Hi-Life also serves a "traditional Westside" brunch that features fresh squeezed juices, complimentary blueberry muffins & cinnamon toast as well as a 2.95 brunch cocktail deal. In the warmer months Hi-Life outdoor seating includes 28 seats along Amsterdam Ave and another 18 seats on our 83rd St side.

"I have wanted to try this place for a long time- it's good but its not going to be a series regular. The menu is diverse- includes typical bar food as well as sushi, creative drink menu, reasonable prices but nothing that really stands out."
