About Gallaghers Steakhouse - Manhattan

Founded by former Ziegfield girl Helen Gallagher and the colorful gambler and sports enthusiast Jack Solomon, Gallaghers opened as a speakeasy and steakhouse in 1927. At that time, the height of Prohibition, a good stiff drink and a great steak were hard to find in New York – except, of course, at Gallaghers.

New Yorkers come for the world-class cocktails and incredible steak – prime beef dry-aged for 21 days in Gallaghers’ legendary windowed meat locker. The combination of all-natural dry aging and cooking it to perfection over hickory coals makes for a steak unlike any other found in New York.

Overall wonderful experience would HIGHLY recommend. Went in for dinner prior to a show nearby. I read many reviews before making our reservation and all were very good... all warning hefty price tag so we were well prepared. We believe you get what you pay for, that being said, the food was DELICIOUS! Impeccable service, great ambiance! When you first walk in all of the aged meats are hanging on display (behind glass of course) but was a really cool touch. The only downside to being only 2 people was that we were on top of the people sitting next to us, ending up making new friends, but left little for privacy. We were ok with it, but I can see others might not. We had a Rib Steak, and a blue cheese crusted 10 oz filet mignon and Caesar Salad. Perfectly cooked, and unmatched flavor! Can't say one bad thing about the food. The drinks were also perfect. We stopped at a bar prior to our reservation and got watered down drinks, exactly what you'd expect in the city..However, at Gallagher's I ordered gin & tonic and the glass was WELL poured (as it should be for the expense), giving the bottle of tonic on the side to make as strong as I'd like. Pricey yes, but worth every single penny!

Client lunch at a steakhouse. I guess very typical but Ive had not so good experiences at something that should be so easy. This was a case where it all worked really well. The timing of the dishes was great and had an easy flow. Opened with some east coast (better of the coasts!) oysters where really fresh and flavorful. I went with a swordfish which was really well prepared. He had steak which based on his clean plate, I assume he loved. Key lime pie finished the meal and everything coupled with a couple of glasses of a nice house cab/blend, it all worked really well. That's to the waiter for the recommendation on the wine. All-in-all, job well done.

Was very excited to plan this romantic dinner because of the reputation of Gallagher's. But was extremely disappointed in the quality/ flavor of the steak! My husband and I are both steak lovers and the meat, other than the hickory smoke flavor was dry and tasteless. The prices were astronomical for sub- par meat. Will not return.

The restaurant was located conveniently across from the parking garage and was only 3 blocks away from the Ambassador theater. We were greeting kindly and seating quickly as well. Our wait staff Rick and Steve both provided us with excellent service. We ordered the NY sirlion which was cooked to perfection, the mac & cheese was also good, for desert we had the cheesecake which was one of the best deserts i have had thus far. I would definitely recommed this restaurant to family or a friend and we will definitely will be back.

Our waiter was great, but the hosts were very snooty and unfriendly. Steak was cooked rare when we requested medium rare. Sides (mashed potatoes and sautéed green beans) were great, but when a steakhouse doesn't cook your steak right it's kind of a bummer. Keens is a much better experience (food, people, ambiance) if you're looking for a good steak in NYC. I won't be going back to Gallaghers.

Great ambience....nothing beats a streak house with deep leather and wood paneling and this place delivers! The food backs up the promise of the ambience as well! The french onion soup was rich and cheesy (but they had no container so I could take my leftover soup?! what's up with that??). The wedge salad was good -- could have used a little more Roquefort for my taste but I'm being picky. The iceberg was crisp and fresh and the beefsteak tomato was good as well. The main attraction -- the steak was really, really good and helped to make me forget about the little miscues along the way. I had the sirloin -- cooked on the bone and then sliced for you (the best of both worlds in my opinion, I get kind of lazy cutting steak!). It's served with a sauce (on the side thankfully since a good steak should stand on its own -- bare!) and it came at exactly the temperature I ordered. The host that greeted and seated me was outstanding and even though I was a single I didn't get relegated to some obscure spot. I had a comfortable table out in the open. That counts a lot to me. The service was just okay (as others have noted). Not bad but not outstanding either. Just okay. The food makes up for the service deficiencies. You've got all male waiters being pretentious in their service. That's part of the steakhouse 'thing' and I'm actually okay with that. I wasn't treated rudely at all and I was left alone to enjoy my meal. Overall a really good experience and it's a place I would return to when I'm back in NY. It's expensive, but actually no more so than the Capital Grilles or other 'chain' steakhouses. Good job Gallagher's! Oh! and there's a pretty nice bar where you can eat also so that's an option. Very close to all the theaters so if you're pre-theatre I would make a reservation.

My husband and I chose this palace for our first trip to NYC. We ate their pre-theater and enjoyed a delicious cocktail, filet mignon, and a delightful macaroni and cheese. The atmosphere was fun, the waiters were pleasant (a little to animated than what we are used too). We both had a dessert and we loved the New York Cheese Cake! My steak was cooked to medium-rare perfection but my husband's was a little over done (he requested medium and his was medium-rare). The meal was a bit pricey...But we were in NYC so we were expecting that.

I've been here twice, and both times the food was excellent. However, on both occasions, there has been a lull in service at some point during the meal. The first time I was there, it happened after we got our steaks. It was a half hour (no exaggeration) before anyone even checked up on us. The second time, we had to wait 15 minutes after we were seated before we were even given menus. Both nights were Tuesday nights. If it wasn't for the food being as awesome as it was, I wouldn't come back. But I will. This is why I would rate Gallagher's as very good as opposed to great.

When looking at the menu, one look at the prices can be disconcerting but when you weigh in the amount and quality of the food you get it makes sense. Gallagher's is not expensive for the sake of just being so, it offers a great portion size with amazing taste unlike many other places who charge a fortune for a small meal and variable flavor. The sides are served family style but if it is just two people, like in my case, one or two sides are more then enough after the large steak. The place was quiet in its own way, meaning plenty of conversations that created a sort of blanket effect that allows for easy personal conversations and privacy while also supplying a mood of connectedness. The wait staff was superb in their service. From being both courteous and jovial while also speaking multiple languages they do their best to make their patrons happy and relaxed. Gallagher's is definitely a place I would go to again as well as recommend.

Was there on a Saturday night I understand this is a very busy night but was greeted and told table wasn't ready for us and asked if we would like to have a drink at the bar...I have been Bar tending for 30 years and understand when a place is packed but never was i that rude to a customer waiting for a drink or ask them if they wanted there change. I was surprised at the fact that what i asked for was told he did not have but a full case of bud light was sitting about 10 feet away . After about 25 minutes I returned to check to see if my table was ready and it was ready and waiting but no one had come to tell us ? we could or would have waited their for who knows how long . We were taken Table and I wish it got better but our waiter took 20 minutes just to bring menu's , The food was to die for but at $51 for a steak you would expect that but a waiter that never checked to see if it was cooked to our liking or if we needed anything until he was trying to push dessert on us when he completely forgot my diet coke... food off the hook everything else not so much.

We picked Gallaghers for many reasons, amazing reviews, good location, nice cozy vibe from the pictures and they have been open for many many years. Plus they are 1 of the Top 10 steakhouses in all of NYC, on many websites.\nWe weren't disappointed, everything was AMAZING!! Service, steak, food portions, atmosphere it was all an experience.

This is a place I try to come every time I am in NYC. After today's visit I am not sure that will continue. Food was awesome as usual but service was terrible. We had 7:30 reservations, but didn't sit until about 8:20. That was not so bad, as the waiter did not service the table well. Never kept water or drinks full and forgot to put in one of the meals. We left a 15% tip even though service did not warrant, THEN the waiter had the nerve to come out of the restaurant and tell me I did not leave him enough of a tip. He tried to tell me that we owed double what we left. Can't believe he came out of the restaurant. We gave a more than fair tip for the service.

Attended on Valentines Day. Restaurant was very busy... not what I would call a romantic restaurant. We were attending for our 10th wedding anniversary which was not mentioned (despite being on the booking). The waiter was not very attentative and made no recommendations. Also, I am a steak lover and have had some amazingly tasty steaks for a fraction of the cost. The ribeye was average at best... cooked perfectly but was flavourless and under seasoned and the creamy mash was lumpy. Used most of their house sauce to flavour the meat which you shouldn't need on good quality meat. Admittedly my wife liked her filet mignon. Probably should have said something because at $290 inc tax and grat for 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 side and one of the cheapest bottle of wine on menu ($50) this was simply not acceptable.

Booked Gallaghers for a special 18th birthday meal on 12th Feb whilst in NYC for 3 days with my two sons, I had read the reviews and decided we should enjoy a top notch NY steak meal...after a warm welcome we were promptly ushered to our table, and ordered our steaks and sides, mouths watering looking at the dishes being served on adjacent tables.... an hour and 10 minutes later our 3 steak meals finally arrived!! We decided we wouldn't need starters due to the size of the 14oz steaks so rather expected to be served our meals within half hour max, after 35 minutes out waiter arrived and apologised for the delay and told us out steaks had just gone onto the fire...evidently this wasn't the case as 20 minutes later he returned to say there had been an a mix up and that our order hadn't got to the chef due to admin error! We were offered another round of drinks on the house which we duly received along with further apologies from another member of staff, possibly the Maitre d' who assured us our food was on its way...finally an hour and 10 mins after ordering it arrived, waiting aside, the steak and sides we ordered were excellent and lived up to expectation, my eldest teenage son who's birthday we were celebrating thought his ribeye was the best steak he had ever tasted but the long wait was simply unacceptable. We were compensated with a round of drinks and also 2 cheesecake desserts (1 we requested to go) and fruit platter and also coffees all on the house. To be fair to the restaurant I felt they compensated us just sufficiently and fortunately we weren't in any great rush, although as you can imagine my two hungry teenage sons (as well as me!) were becoming very impatient! \nI would recommend on the basis of the food alone, although very pricey, and it was evident Tony our waiter was very embarrassed over the whole affair, but I don't think we will revisit as there are plenty of other venues to try out in the future!

Can't beat the atmosphere and service, and it was quite busy in a Monday night. I will say that I was not super impressed with the food though. All of the sides were lackluster and served tepid. The fries were soggy and not hot nor was the asparagus. The meats were all very good, but they did cut up the wrong one that was ordered to share. Nothing agregious, but for the money I expect the highest quality. \nAgain though, the staff is excellent and it really is a beautiful place to have a nice dinner.

An expected fine steak house experience turned into disaster. After Broadway, 4 of us arrived rain soaked and ready for a nice evening. The hosts took our coats, escorted us to a nice booth in a quieter location away from the bar. We chose nice above average wines by the glass. \n\nI had a Classic Wedge salad, with a large slice of RIPE Beefsteak tomato, hooray! One gal had the 10oz. Filet perfectly charred to medium rare as ordered. Two gals split a New York Strip ordered; MEDIUM. The waiter offered to pre-slice,. It came BLUE rare, a huge mistake compared to the medium rare of the filet. Sent back, it arrived 10 minutes later exactly as before but slightly warm as if under a heat lamp. \n\nThe waited blamed us, saying, 'Well what do you GIRLS want me to do, waste the steak?' NO! We LADIES want you to present a steak cooked to MEDUIM as ordered. He got huffy, removed it and stalked off. The 3 ladies shared the medium filet along with garlicy broccoli and somewhat mushy potatoes Lyonnais. \n\nHere's the deal: We normally tip 20-25 % in a Steakhouse and dine all over the planet. Nothing cosmic about a steak. A glass meat locker hangs aging beef in full view of patrons when they arrive. This is what Gallagher's does! The PROBLEM with a $54 steak mistake? An expediter calls it to the food runner and the waiter ASSUMES it is as ordered. We HATE it when the food runner appears, interrupts conversation, checks to see who has what, drops the plate and leaves. When the waiter returns to see how our 'first bites are' he has no idea there weren't any!\n\nThe Maître'd arrived, professionally and patiently LISTENED to the complaint and the insult delivered by the waiter. We asked him to locate the untouched steak and see it for himself. He offered a complimentary dessert, we declined 3 times then friend who generously shared her filet accepted for all of us. Had this happened to a table of MEN, would they have been condescended to? Oh well. We did enjoy the atmosphere.

We went on the last day of winter 2017 Restaurant Week, the restaurant was NOT full. Our waiter was on the ball at first . . . he asked if we were in a rush, we said yes, he was personable. We received our first course, in a matter of minutes. Then the wait came; almost 40 minutes to receive two medium rare steaks. We had to then rush our main meal, ask for our dessert to go and get the check which took another 10-15 minutes. Very disappointed in the service.

Our choices were the ribeye and stuffed shrimp and both were executed very well. While I've had more impressive steaks in the past this one was cooked perfectly with little seasoning and no steakhouse tricks like butter or oil added after. Just a nice solid steak. The stuffed shrimp were huge and full of natural flavor. I couldn't recommend them more. Lemony and fresh ingredients allowed the shrimp and crab to shine. Staff was attentive and engaging. Despite forgetting an order of clams, a blessing in disguise because we ordered a lot of food, I'd say the staff did a great job.

My friends and I wanted to try a Steakhouse as part of the Restaurant Week deal. I did a search and this one came up. it had the best ratings and I wasn't familiar with it so we decided to go. Unfortunately we did not know that deal was only available for lunch at this restaurant. We decided to just enjoy ourselves and ordered a very nice Rioja, for appetizers we had the Tuna Tartar and Burrata with roasted peppers. Both were delicious. We then shared a Porterhouse for two which was plenty and done perfectly. The only thing we weren't crazy about was their steak au poive sauce which didn't taste like pepper but we loved their house sauce. We also had sides of creamed spinach and sauteed mushrooms, really good and large portions. For dessert we shared a banana creamed pie which was also really good, especially the crust. The staff were fairly friendly and the prices were reasonable for what we ordered. I will definitely go back.

Gallagher's is old school aged beef at its best, coupled with a New York ambiance that is waning (i.e. Carnegie Deli) and harder and harder to find in NY these days.

An additional starter of the slab bacon and onion rings with the entree all started off with 52nd Street Old Fashions made for an outstanding meal. The Sea Smoke Ten accompanied the filets perfectly. What? Pinot Noir with filet mignon you scoff? Try THIS Pinot Noir and you'll see... Finished with the best New York cheesecake I've ever had. I can't imagine a better steakhouse in NYC, or anywhere.

He described all apps and entrees with enthusiasm and made a great app recommendation which the three of us shared. We all had the filet and that's where all of the air went out of the tires. The cut of meat did not look at all like filet cuts I have seen at fine steak restaurants. It was mealy looking and quite tough to cut through. the Mac & Cheese and mushroom apps were OK.

Peppercorn sauce could have more flavor and thickness (more of a broth consistency is what theirs is). We were given a small chocolate cake to go since it was our anniversary, which was nice. I would go back and hopefully get a better piece of meat.

Steak lovers will be happy with this venue. We were there on a Tuesday night and the place was jumping! Get there by 6:30ish for the Prime Rib, if you want it. 13 hours of slow roasted beef is delicious! We ordered the lobster & shrimp dumplings and they were great. The wine list is plentiful, however more expensive than other houses in Manhattan. I guess you could attribute this due to its close proximity to Times Square and also, THEY HAVE BEEN IN THIS LOCATION FOREVER! Prohibition times, to be exact. Good dining experience. But if you want to shave off a few bucks you have other options without sacrificing quality

I made reservations for our 10 year wedding anniversary at Gallagher's. This steakhouse was amazing! We ordered the porterhouse for two with asparagus and brussel sprouts. I asked for the steak to be cooked medium, but in reality it was more like rare to medium rare. No complaints from me, but my wife would've liked it closer to medium-well.\n\nOur waiter was Shane and he did an amazing job. He was very attentive and helpful the entire time. At some point, I made a passing comment about this being our anniversary. Next thing we know, Shane is bringing out a small cake for my wife and I. Not only that, it had a single candle on it! Very cool, Shane. Very cool.\n\nWe were very happy with our dining experience at Gallagher's. I would definitely go there again and recommend anyone else to go there too!

Gallagher's is a venerable old steak house. Old school meats and old school service - professional, friendly and knowledgeable. We have been going there for years and feared the do-over of a couple of years ago might spoil the ambience - not so. The place has been subtly renovated and the old charm is maintained. The steaks are still reliably wonderful.\nWe hope to be able to keep on going back for many years to come.

A great , traditional steakhouse in mid-town Manhattan. Old-style waiters (not a woman on staff to be seen except the coat-check girl) who provided excellent service - simply gentlemen from beginning to end. HUGE portions of everything - and all done to perfection. Only complaint was with the oysters on the 1/2. Just average ... nothing special. Unique preparation of the steak tartare - more spicy that I have ever experienced, but great none the less. Ask for extra toasts, you'll need them! Was disappointed they were out of prime rib, but our reservation was at 10. Next time, we'll shoot for 8:30 or 9 so as not to miss out.

My wife and I went because of its convenient location adjacent to the theater where we were going to see a show. I would recommend Gallagher's on that basis alone. Our meal was not complicated: steamed vegetables and a filet mignon cooked rare -- that is, with a cold red center. As fans of the filet mignon we know that it is a tender and mild cut of meat. It comes with a minimum of fat and no connective tissue and in almost all circumstances can be cut with a fork and consumed in its entirety. Our steaks were cooked as we ordered but sadly featured a great deal of connective tissue that had to be cut away. This should not happen on an expensive cut of meat and distracted from what would otherwise have been a very good meal. The sides were very good, the bread plate excellent, as was the service. The restaurant has interesting decor and carries off the 'old steakhouse' clubby atmosphere very well. Even for a Broadway restaurant it is expensive to dine here and the meat they serve should better reflect that price point. A simple dinner (10 oz filet and asparagus) for two with two cocktails was $200 before tip. We were disappointed, but may try again.

I have always wanted to go to Gallaghers and I finally got the opportunity this week. I was gravely disappointed, the service was HORRIBLE. Steak was awesome, drinks okay (too fruity for my taste), noise level extremely loud. Once your first course comes out, you are then rushed, you just finished your last bite when the next course appears...until coffee. Our waiter let our coffee sit in the coffee station for 12 minutes before he finally brought it to us. How do I know this, I watch my cappuccino sit on a rolling cart as it got bumped and moved and was in everyone's way. I have to admit, because of service, Gallaghers left a bad taste in my mouth.

My Boyfriend and I were there for Christmas Day Dinner. We arrived 10mins early for our table and were seated right away. Place was busy, and had a nice atmosphere. We both got fillet steaks, which were really good, a bit pricey but we had known it would be, and didn't mind as it was a special occasion. Service was a little slow, but as we were quite relaxed and our waiter was really nice, it didn't bother us. Overall it was an enjoyable meal. The one issue we had, we felt like we were being rushed to finish our food and get out so that someone else could get our table, that was a bit disappointing. And it wasn't as if we had been dilly daddling, and being really slow. I would still recommend going there, as the food was very tasty.

Granted, the restaurant got crowded. But still, 30 minutes without a waiter stopping by to ask us if we were ok, or to fill up our water? That was disappointing.

The meat is very good, very tender. The plates are really big so we took one for two. The sides are also big and I think one for two is enough. Prices are high but if you share it's ok and you'll get enough food. The place is historic. We were sitting around a round table and it wasn't very confortable as there is just enough place to fit someone between the couch and the table. The noise level was to high.

Great experience for a visit to NYC. Excellent food, steaks are amazing although I had the crab cake because the smallest steak available is a 10 ounce filet which is too much for me. The crab cake was full of lump crab and one of the best I have had. Very noisy but is part of the experience. Excellent service. Highly recommend.

Their favorite Old Fashions were at Gallaghers, a lively classic bar, with great cocktails. Our dinner, which included Brussel sprouts and salad starters were delicious, followed by Lamb chops, steaks and finished with cheese cake. Every meal expertly cooked.

We arrived an hour ahead of our reservation and they seated us, which was nice. Service was slower than we are used to at similar restaurants. The major complaint though was that our steaks came to the table at room temperature - really. I had the porterhouse and my wife had the filet. The steaks had fantastic taste and were spot on at medium rare, but they must have sat for some time between being prepared and being placed at our table, which leads me to believe it was a service issue. In fact, as it turned out, our steaks were placed in front of the couple next to us, then shifted back to the delivery tray then to us after they learned of the error. One small delta, the oysters were not detached from the shells. However, they finished strong by bringing the dessert and coffee to the table at the same time. Too often restaurants will bring the coffee first and by the time the dessert arrives at the table the coffee has already been finished.

This restaurant did not honor their prices on the menu on Open Table. When questioned they said it was an old menu and their prices were higher than published. In addition the waiter never came by to ask me if my steak was cooked as ordered. It was burned to a crisp. Then when they cleared the table they took my wine and I still had a half of glass left. I told them and they brought me an eighth of a glass. Overall, kind of a weird dining experience.

When I go to a steakhouse (often) I usually wind up getting the large filet and always finish that and my fiance's filet...NY steakhouses especially, they are able to be cut with a fork...that said, I couldn't even cut this tough filet even with a sharp knife..no taste, undercooked for medium, and didn't even bother to take it home. The vegetable (sautéed spinach) needed some flavor and was a bit cold also. The deserts and appetizers/salad were excellent as was the service.

We had a 4pm reservation. Showed up at 345pm. Seated at 355pm. Took a while for a waiter to come take our drink order. Once he took it. We waited for close to 20 mins for our beverages to come out. A waiter from another table ended up taking our food order and helping us when he saw me looking around for our waiter. Between him and another waiter we got taken care of. The steak was not seasoned. I couldnt find my waiter so I borrowed the salt and pepper from the table next to us since we didn't have any to try and help the steak out. Cooked to the correct temperature but was as bland as my English grandmothers cooking. Both mine and my wife's knives were about as sharp a butter knife. I seriously debating using my pocket knife. We would've asked for more but we were not checked on during our meal. A friend who lives locally recommended Gallagher's. Wish I had gone to Del Frisco instead. Being from texas we have high expectations of what steak should taste like. I would not recommend this restaurant to any friends.

Great first experience at Gallagher's! Restaurant was recommended by a friend and it didn't disappoint. We were celebrating my wife's 40th birthday in NYC so we decided to try it. I was worried after reading some of the reviews as many of them mentioned the closeness of the tables and lacy of privacy. It turned out to be the opposite. We were seated at a 2 top table between 2 other tables that was so close to the other two that my wife had to slide the tables together to give herself a 6-12 inch gap to get to her seat. We had great conversations with the couple beside us and after they left we were able to talk to a couple from England. The steaks were fantastic and the side were delicious. I had mentioned in my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and to my surprise at the end of dinner they waiters came out singing and with cake.

Gallagher's is a typical New York steakhouse. When we arrived we walked past an enclosed room with masses of amazing beef so it looked like a good choice.\nThe portions were of course very large but of a great quality. One of our party ordered a 'blue' steak and I ordered a medium steak however they got the order round the wrong way! When we pointed this out to our waiter he called over one of the managers and they offered to bring another blue steak but as our friend had already eaten part of my steak we declined the offer. They said that they wouldn't charge for her steak and brought a large complimentary fruit platter which they didn't need to do. The issue was handled well but we would have preferred that they got the order right - the issue seemed to be in the kitchen and not with our waiter..

Although we live out-of-state, we have eaten at Gallaghers many times during our visits to NYC. There was a period of time, under prior management, when the restaurant was not living up to its historic reputation. Under the current management team, Gallaghers is once again a major force and one we will return to often.

My husband and I purchased tickets for a play and were looking forward to dining again at Gallaghers prior to the performance. We arrived for our 5PM reservation on time and informed our waiter we had tickets for a performance that began at 7PM, and had to leave the restaurant not later than 6:45PM. Our waiter assured us we would be out of the restaurant on time without feeling rushed. We had cocktails, and then our table fell into the black hole of waiter inattention. A table of 14 was seated in our waiter's section, and while our waiter said he wanted to take our order ahead of the 14 person party (which he did), we did not received our (very expensive) meal until 6:25PM - even after pointing out several times to our waiter how long we had been waiting to be served. We were unable to finish our meal, and had to finalize the bill while trying to enjoy a few last hurried bites. This was a very unsatisfactory experience and one that we did not expect of Gallagher's. Somehow, between our waiter's inattention and perhaps a scheduling problem with the kitchen my husband and I were left paying for a meal half of which remained on the table. We travel to NYC regularly - it will take some time for us to forget this unmemorable meal. Thank you.

I am a bit disappointed, not about the food but about the service, in particular, how they manage the table reservations. It was a Thursday evening. After having booked a table in advance, we arrived there and the entrance hall was overflowing with people. It was so crowded that nobody else could fit in. Even the people didn't 'line up' because everybody was there like a crowd. To arrive at the front-of house standing table was just a nightmare!. After telling our name to the maître we had to wait for AN HOUR to have our table and I was only wishing that they didn't give me a high table with stools!! (It is just my opinion but I think it is a sacrilege to eat at a high top table or around a bar sitting on a stool in a good restaurant such as the Gallagher's). In the end it was a good experience and the food was delicious but there's something they have to improve about the entrance hall, the table turns and the guests who have a reservation. It was completely out of control!

I met with cousins visiting NYC and they made the choice of Gallaghers, never having been . It did not disappoint them! A lovely bottle of wine was chosen from the extensive wine list and we shared mixed oysters as a starter. They made 3 of their fried shrimp for me, but it was not as I remembered--the batter was not as delicate as in the past (not beer battered it seems) and very disappointing. Porterhouse for 3 with creamed spinach and mushrooms was wonderful and I got to take home the leftovers! Caesar salad was also delicious. The service was extremely attentive and no detail was overlooked. As a native New Yorker, Gallaghers has always been a go-to steak house (as well as Lugers) for many years. We were seated with a short wait and they honored my request not to be seated in the back and seated us across from the bar in a cozy banquette. The excitement of the room and the interesting pictures made my cousin say that 'this is what NYC is all about' Memorable evening!!

Had the small seafood platter:\nShrimp were spectacular, lobster a touch chewy and modest sweetness, raw clams fresh tasting, oyster same. \n\nHad the Porterhouse for 2:\nOrdered Medium rare (as it should be), and served as such. However, while the meat was generally soft there were several tough/gristle inclusions, and the flavor of the grill and cut were subdued. Recent Porterhouse for 2 meals at Harvest on the Hudson, and Jake's Steakhouse were notably more enjoyable. More grill and meat flavor, better cuts of meat overall. Of them, Gallagher's had the most effect from the Dry Aging, which is not a surprise since the dry aging cooler is featured at the entrance.\n\nFor the record: I am a butcher's grandson who has worked delivering the restaurant supply meats sold by the company he founded, and who would eat dry aged T-Bone, Porterhouse, and Tri-Tips out of a Microwave when young as prime beef was ever present.\n\nThe ordered sautéed Spinach was a bit overcooked for my taste, the French fries were 'like my mother used to make them' (dinner guest's comment). The baked potato under-cooked with too little provided sour cream. The Cheesecake, top end, light and creamy. The creme brulee nothing special.\n\nThe Heitz Cellar Cabernet was listed as 2011, 2012 served.\n\nLastly, overnight I did suffer some intestinal distress, which I suspect was related to the raw seafood. Noting that the seafood did seem very fresh.

OK-Drop the Attitude. Too staid and depressing.?Went there for a Pre- theatre lunch. When we arrived it was empty and the Maitre D required a few prods to get our attention. These men are too let's say 'mature' to put any snoot on. Lol. My mother had a walker and our driver brought her in, but I am not sure whether the restaurant would have helped her get in. The restaurant got increasingly crowded and louder to the point of impossibility of hearing anyone but the loud guy at table next to me. Waiter was pretty much none existent. The stand out moment was when I mentioned to him that we had a 2 o'clock show and he said something to the effect that so did everyone else. Haha- jokester! I was not asking for anything just that he had the info. I go to pre-theatre dining on REGULAR basis and find that every time I mention it the staff are happy to have the info-it was odd. Food value was nice- 3 course pre-fixe for $29- very good price, however choices were weird because majority of entrees were salads and all the appetizers but one, soup du jour, were salads. The wedge salad was pretty anemic for a Steak House and while the filet in the sliced filet itself was exquisite and just melted, the sauce was ketchup-like tasting and ruined the vegetables ( and the overall steak experience). Dessert was nice piece of key lime pie. Salmon on the salmon salad entree looked nice (size and presentation) and my friend seemed to enjoy it. My mom ordered crab cakes alone (not part of prix fixe) and also seemed to enjoy it but they were small. The restaurant did nicely accomodate b-day cake pre-request. However, there was no help with offering to cut cake up, etc. let's say that the only thing that would bring me back is location and quality of beef. That is it.

I got the filet mignon and my husband had the sirloin. We had sides of broccoli rabe, mushrooms and onions. It was all incredibly delicious. And their signature steak house was so good!.

We made our reservation on Open Table to have lunch at Gallagher's with our family (party of 6) following an annual tradition of attending the Christmas show at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and were told we would have to wait a minute. We had no problem with that. Then, an older gentleman interjected that a table was ready. We were sat in the back of the restaurant, directly in front of the kitchen serving line where they were preparing the food. It was loud, and we spent our meal hearing the chef raise his voice, bark orders and curse on the line. For what the meal cost us, all of that made the experience much less than desirable today. The food was OK, and our waiter Patrick was attentive. I was disappointed.

Having dined at this steakhouse several years back with only a mediocre experience, we decided after hearing that they remodeled to give it another try. Mind you, we have dined at Gallagher's in Las Vegas 20 times over the past several years and have never had a bad meal or poor service. This restaurant in NYC has a lot to be desired. Having been in the hospitality industry for many years, my husband and I were beyond disappointed. We arrived an hour early for our 10pm reservation to relax at the bar with a few cocktails. We sat down and it took 10 minutes for 1 of the 3 bartenders to even acknowledge us. We had to get his attention. He stood in front of us cleaning and chatting, but never made the effort to serve us. For dinner, we were placed at a 2 top, 6 inches from the table beside us, which also had a recently sat couple. It took 8 minutes for the waiter to acknowledge us, even though he had been to the table beside us several times. He asked if we would like to see a wine list and when we declined he disappeared, returning 5 minutes later with menus. The 1st waiter (older with a man bun) was helping the table next to us choose a bottle of wine, placing his hand and leaning on our table. My husband kept leaning away from him. He then uncorked the bottle within inches of my husbands ear, leaning over my husband to pour their wine. When they finally arrive to take our order, my husband ordered the NY strip (medium rare), I had the stuffed shrimp, sharing the Lyonnaise potatoes. 10 minutes after we placed our order, the waiter returned to ask the steak temperature again, assuming our oder had not been placed. When our order arrived, the steak was prepared to the wrong temperature, had absolutely no flavor and had the consistency of a 'Choice' cut of meat. We were beyond disappointed. We decided to cut our losses. I have never walked out without tipping. EVER. But this time we did. We tip well and will pay for high quality food. This is not the place

The restaurant was fine however the service was very bad, not only slow, but inattentive. It was lunch time, pre-theater. One would think they would either have enough wait staff, or better trained staff. We were told that the poor service was due to the holidays. That doesn't make sense since dining at any time of the year should remain consistent, and it's not like they haven't served lunch on a Saturday before, pre theater.\n\nThe food was good, however, two of us ordered filet, medium. One filet was well done with little seasoning, and the other, very rare, blue red, not pink. We did not send anything back since the service was so slow and relatively non-existent, we didn't want to do that and risk missing our theater time. The other entrees, lamb chops ands short ribs, were excellent as were the salads and soup. \n\nThe staff was pleasant enough though, but we were really disappointed. All this said, I understand that sometimes, a restaurant has an off day.

Gallagher's has been a family favorite for generations. Have had dinner for 8-10 several times a year for decades. Our last two experiences have thoroughly changed our positive opinion. Most recently, our service was really sub standard. Had to cross the room to the wine cooler each time to pour our own, as we never saw our waiter at all in between delivery of courses. Meal prep was not as requested--all steaks came out quite rare, despite varying orders of wellness--but with little service attention, had no opportunity to ask to go back on grill. Overall, absolutely nothing special. For many years, our experiences were consistent and excellent. Not sure if a result of the new ownership, but our last two visits were really disappointing.

Our waiter had a cut finger. The h20 glasses were removed immediately, but no apology from staff, mgr or otherwise. We both ordered the prime beef burger and requested they be cooked medium well. Our food was delivered, and we ended up both receiving the sliced prime rib sandwiches.

Gallagher's is the perfect place to dine pre-or post theater. We arrived a bit early for our reservation but were seated immediately. Despite a packed restaurant, Michael, our server, was totally on top of everything. The evening specials are always worth trying (although the slab of bacon with tomato chutney was.. interesting.) We love the atmosphere, the food, the service -everything about Gallagher's is New York perfection. We come here every time we're in the city. (Don't miss their sweet potato mash! Beyond delicious!)

To put it simply, it's a typical NYC steakhouse. The waiters up sell, they're a bit gritty and forward, however that is the act. The dinning experience was average overall. The steak was cooked to perfection as expected. I don't recall anything else about the meal, not to say that's bad or good necessarily. I've found many steakhouses through the city to be very similar. However, if you're passing by and you're hungry it would be a fine place to stop in at a low cost.

I had visited Gallaghers several yrs ago and this time I felt the food wasn't as good - the steaks were smaller, the food was warm but not hot and we felt rushed. The food has become very expensive and the wine was far too pricey. I couldn't recommend this restaurant to others now as it doesn't offer enough wow for the money. \nWith the addition of over $80 gratuities it meant a 2 course steak meal for 4, with 4 drinks and 1 bottle of the cheapest wine was $600.

We were visiting New York for the first time and had friends to recommend this spot. My husband had the filet and I enjoyed a fish dish. The server very artfully removed the bones from my fish at the table. A sight to see. Perfectly fileted and carefully re-plated. The location is perfect for catching a show. We had tickets to Jersey Boys playing at the August Wilson Theater across the street. We enjoyed our visit so much that we returned after the show for dessert. My husband had a huge slice of chocolate cake and I chose the cheesecake. Yum! Would definitely recommend to friends and will return.

It was a packed house on a Sunday evening, so make a reservation. They are known for their steaks, and they deserve the praise for them. The 10 ounce fillet with garlic mushroom topping was amazing. The baked potato wasn't the best I've ever had, as it was huge, but not very soft. The toppings were a bit sparse for the size of the potato. The crème brulee was good, but not one of the best I've had.

Gallaghers is very comparable to Keen's steakhouse. Prices at Gallaghers is a tad bit less (not much) but the value and taste is the same. Service was excellent and prompt; food was fantastic and flavorful . Helpful hint: The 'sides' are considered 'family style' (the 'side' of broccoli was enough for 3-4 people and a baked potato could have easily been enough for 2). I though that prices were very good for what is considered an 'upscale' restaurant.

I have to eat at Gallaghers when I'm in New York City. This is the quintessential American steakhouse.\n\nUpon arriving at Gallaghers you immediately see the aging room where they have the beef on display as it undergoes the dry aging process. This room is what heaven must look like. The meat is well-organized and tagged. You can see the aging process in its various stages, from bright red slabs of meat that were recently placed to the darker slabs that will soon find their way to the kitchen. You can see firsthand the inimitable quality of the meat that you will soon be feasting on.\n\nThe service at Gallaghers is always impeccable. On our latest visit the dining room was bustling but we were immediately greeted by our waiter, who proceeded to take our drink order. While we were always attended to we were never rushed. We ordered a filet mignon and a rib steak; both were perfectly cooked and exquisite. For dessert we shared a rich cheesecake.\n\nThe wine list is very good.

why? we won't eat in restaurants where there is an all male wait-staff. This is a large restaurant--multiple rooms, and a steak house.

The food is steak house quality...really good spinach and fries...While the steak is well-made, crust, temperature chosen...but the quality of meat is not the level we find at top places...eg.

Anniversary trip. Went before going to B'way show, so had early reservation. Timely service. Had west coast oysters & wedge salad for app. Both good. Had porterhouse for 2 (med rare). Filet side was great...fork tender, great flavor. Sirloin side was good too, but obviously not as tender. Next time, will try rib-eye. Hash browns were terrific (some of best I've had at a steakhouse). Also, very good bar drinks (wife: rum spritzer; me: 2 old-fashioneds [one on cocktail menu; one Rittenhouse Rye😍].\nWould definitely come back. We liked better than S&W and Del Frisco's. Not as much as PL's, but not too far off on steak.

We have frequented Gallagher's since the 70's, and we have never been disappointed. Patrick our waiter is the best, and we have had the pleasure of his service before. We have been to many steakhouses, but the dry aged here is done correctly (time, temp), and is much better than wet aged. Bring your appetite because the portions are huge. Share the sides they are huge as well. And dessert, well we recommend the sorbet (lemon). Thanks for making our evening even more special.

we made 8pm reservations and arrived at 8:03pm. They did not have a table ready and had to wait 5 mins for a table to be set up. they tried to give us a high bar table in the bar area which was near the entrance and both crowded and noisy. we refused and stated we made reservations and expected dining area. another 5 min wait and we were led to another crowded and noisy area deeper in restaurant. tables were only a foot apart and had to move table to get to seat. waiters could not get to adjacent tables without diners having to move to give them room! of course, diners finished eating could not leave without moving tables to make room and disturbing others! not what we expected from an establishment of this caliber! service was slow and waiter apologized because busy and crowded. wife had 10oz filet mignon and i had ribeye (bone-in), calamari (nite special) and sauteed mushrooms (side). filet mignon could have been more tender, ribeye was good but can get better and less expensive at other steakhouses. calamari and mushrooms were very good and generous portions. we believe gallaghers is over-rated and will not be dining here again when there are so many others to chose from in the area.

Have been going to this restaurant when in NYC for the past 20 years and it measures up very well with all the other high end steak houses in Manhattan. All of the steaks they serve are dry aged so none of that paying more for steaks if you prefer them that way. The restaurant has been in business many years and underwent a complete renovation a couple of years ago. This is the one instance I can honestly say that the renovation actually improved the historic ambience of the restaurant. It's old school and it's great.

Celebrated my Wife's birthday. Loved the décor. Old world meets traditional. The glass that surrounded the cooking areas where you could watch the chefs was great. The old schooled waiters reminded me of a traditional Steak House experience and they were spot on. The food was really delicious. We had the crab cake and lobster and shrimp dumplings as an appetizer. The lumps of crab were outstanding and the dumplings in sweet dipping sauce were sublime. We ordered the filet mignon and salmon as our entrees. The portions were excellent and we shared the mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. The prices were traditional of a NYS steak house but honestly well worth it. We will return and will recommend this restaurant to friends and family. I am not a tourist. I am from NY. The fact they are located in Times Square should not stop true Steak enthusiast to give this newly revamped Steak House a try. You wont be disappointed.

Excellent food and wine, but you can hardly go wrong with steak provided it is served up by people who know what they are doing. A little disappointed my 'rare' veal chop was raw through most of its thickness - and when the kitchen had cooked it a little more after I had devoured all of the best bits on the outside, it came back on a clean plate so I lost the juices that I had been looking forward to eating...but mustn't be too churlish! My only real complaint is that the prices are sky-high, to be honest.

BETTER THAN EXPECTED\nEven though we don't eat much meat, we chose Gallagher's because it is near the theater we were headed to. But it's much more than just a 'convenient location.' We were surprised that everything came together for a wonderful meal. Gallagher's is an old-fashioned steakhouse, with attentive service and delicious, straightforward food. Hubby loved his lobster bisque, with good reason: made with terrific briny stock and NO floury-starchy thickener. Based on a little taste, I agree with him that this is a lobster bisque to remember. I was very happy with my steak tartare, confident that it was made with high quality beef by someone who knew what they were doing. And we both loved the salmon we ordered, cooked as we each requested - a perfect meal before a performance. I would definitely go back and recommend it to others.

Our waiter & waiter's assistant, Thomas & Fernando, respectively, were SUPERB! I never had to ask for my water to be refilled (I drink a lot of water!). Thomas was very accommodating. My father & step-mother split the rib eye and my son & I split the bone-in strip and Thomas did not bat an eye at this and informed us that there is no plate sharing fee. I had the lobster bisque for an appetizer. I found it to be a bit fishy but still enjoyable. The strip was cooked perfectly medium and melted in my mouth. I will say that I found my baked potato to be undercooked. I didn't complain because I like a very well done baked potato but was disappointed that such a fancy place didn't have nice, fluffy baked potatoes. Oh well, next time, I'll try the mashed. My father had a glass of Riesling that was tasty but no other alcohol was ordered. My stepmother ordered unsweetened iced tea. She didn't realize it is flavored with mint.

We've been coming to Gallaghers from the UK for 30 years whenever we're in NYC. The steaks are great (accurately cooked but too big!) & the service excellent. However, since our last visit, they've wedged in too many tables, the extensive wine list has far too many mega-priced bottles (nothing under $60) & Guiness is no longer sold (it was the best outside of Dublin)! The food quality is really good, but $170 for two main courses, 2 glasses of wine & 2 beers (no dessert as they'd run out of cheese cake!) is excessive in our opinion. We love Gallaghers & will return, but I don't want to feel that we, as customers, are being taken advantage of.

Saw the historical stories and was looking forward to a great evening. Ambience was fabulous - but the service was unfriendly and I didn't realize like other steak houses they douse the steak in butter which turns my stomach. I would never go back again. At that price they should mention the butter because I find it revolting. Could have been good but overpriced and underwhelmed.

We went to Gallaghers as part of a celebration of birthdays for several family members. We went to a play first and then walked to the restaurant. The service was excellent. The steaks are some of the best any of us had ever had. The side dishes were amounts suitable for a family so we were able to get several and share. They also were very good. The drinks were plentiful and very tasty. The birthday people got small birthday cakes that were shared with everyone. They also were very good. Several people got coffee and one person got Cappuccino and all of these were excellent. Basically there was absolutely nothing to complain about. It is expensive but given how good it is, the quantity and quality of the food and the fact that it is in Manhattan it seemed worth it. I would definitely go again.

We decided to try a new Steak Restaurant in New York. We loved the dinner so much that we went back the next day for lunch! The crab cake appetizer is the BEST I have ever had, and I have tried a few hundred over the years. As my husband stated, 'It was all thriller, and no filler!' Delicious! We also enjoyed a rib steak; perfectly crusted on the outside and fork tender. Great side dishes - try the mac and cheese. Key Lime pie was delicious too! The service was superb both times we went. \nOne thing to note, if you go at lunch they do have a set menu, Salad, Main and Dessert for $29.00 Yes you read that correctly $29.00! \nCan't wait to return :)

The service was spectacular at this Gallagher's, second to none. The food...not so much. I felt like the meat was second rate. The tenderness and flavor and superiority of the steak that was advertised and described on the menu just was not there. This was the same steak I could have bought at a chain like Texas Roadhouse or Longhorn. I was with a party of 8 on this trip and all agreed that the food left something to be desired. Grilled shrimp was overcooked, the veggies very plain. This was a trip that took a year of planning to pull off and the trip to Gallagher's to have dinner with our friends was the central focus of our effort and expense.

Excellent choice for afternoon or evening meal. Server was knowledgeable and polite. We ordered lobster bisque and the soup of the day lentil. As for our main courses we ordered lamb chops and NY sirloin. The sides were mashed potatoes steamed asparagus. The lamb chops were a little disappointing. Steak was perfect. Manager came over and gave us a complimentary fruit late because of the lamb chops. A nice gesture. I will try the porterhouse next time. Great pictures of celebrity's on the wall-a nostalgic touch for this restaurant.

Some things were done very right, some things a little less so. \nA. Shared the Porterhouse for 2 and it was a beautiful cut and was cooked wonderfully. Very under-seasoned.\nB. Had two waiters - one was a veteran waiter and was excellent. Unfortunately we didn't see him often, and his partner was just so so, skipping the specials, a bit slow on the refills, not telling us how large the sides were (we later heard other waiters making sure to tell their tables about it) and other little things here and there. Not that I'd ever say the service was bad it just wasn't always up to my expectations.\nC. I had mentioned in my reservation that I was coming for my anniversary. They were very nice and brought a little anniversary cake (on the house) to the table. However, they did this after we had already ordered and eaten dessert (and we were quite full). It was very thoughtful, which was a big plus, but wasn't handled ideally.\nI came to Gallaghers with high expectations for a very important night, and I had a nice time and would definitely consider going back - it didn't quite meet my high expectations though, so I very well might consider one of the other highly recommended steak houses in the city next time.

Had a party of 7 so we made a reservation. Arrived about 15 minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately. First of all, the atmosphere is awesome. One of our party commented that it seemed like the type of place you see old school New York mobsters hang out in movies. Dark wood paneling, white table clothes, the waiters predominately older and wearing black jackets and ties. Walking past the dry age room on the way to the table was fun. Service was awesome despite a packed house. Now, on to the food. 6 of 7 in our party ordered the 10 oz filet mignon and sides of mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and sautéed mushrooms to share. Our 7th ordered French onion soup and a wedge salad. All of our steaks were cooked to perfection and melted in our mouth and the sides were also excellent and huge portions (we didn't finish any of them between the 7 of us). The soup and wedge salad also got two thumbs up. There can be a bit of sticker shock when you see the menu prices but when out check came the total for 7 didn't seem to be outrageous. If you are in the city looking for an 'experience' this place is definitely recommended.

The service was disastrous. My friend, who was in from abroad to visit family, is a vegan. He requested plain potatoes and vegetables cooked without oil. After one such request the waiter told us that 'the chef doesn't like special requests' and after another that 'I'll see what I can do but this is a steakhouse after all'. Further, this was all said with a reproachful paternalism that suggested we were children that 'should have known better'. My mistake, I was under the impression that Gallagher's was a restaurant that served its loyal patrons. \n\nPlease keep in mind for the purpose of context that we were a party of four and only one of us had any dietary restrictions leading to off menu requests. I was embarrassed and frankly, angry, because I had raved about Gallagher's and was the reason that we were there. We were made to feel alienated. Its inexcusable at a McDonald's, much less a chophouse of Gallagher's reputation and history. \n\nAll else was excellent as usual but the pessimistic, cynical service was a terrible and disappointing turn off.

Best food we have been able to find in the city. The servers were a tad bit rude, but the food made up for it.

Have been going to Gallaghers for many years, and this was my first slightly negative experience. We were told on the phone that, if we arrived at 10:30 PM and placed our order quickly, our reservation would be honored. We did exactly what was requested of us, and were able to eat and drink everything we ordered (starters, drinks, main course, dessert). However, we constantly had the feeling from the wait staff that we need to 'speed things up.' At one point, two waiters actually came to our table and 'distributed' oysters onto our plates; the same thing happened with the side dishes for our main course. When the check was brought to our table, the waiter made a point of saying that he 'hoped we did not feel rushed.' So, it was very clear that he was also aware of the hectic atmosphere which he and his colleagues created for us throughout the evening. When spending as much money as we did on dinner that night, I would expect to be treated to the dining experience I've come to know and love from Gallaghers. Unfortunately, this was not at all the case.

They have fixed it up nicely, split an order of the soft-shell crabs for an appetizer, perfectly cooked. My friend had the veal parm chop and I had the lamb chops. Veal was excellent my lamb came out over cooked but they immediately took it away and 5 min later brought out a properly cooked setup of lamb chops. Over all good meal solid food and excellent drinks.

The evening was spoiled by the surly attitude of the manager who rudely told us we had not left a large enough tip for the waiter and demanded to know why. The bill was 310 dollars and we left a tip of 40 dollars. We saw that a tip of 18 to 20 percent was highlighted on the bill but felt that 13 percent was appropriate for the service we received . We were visiting from Europe where tipping is usually at the discretion of the customer and based on the service they receive. The waiter had emphasised that he expected a gratuity of 18 percent or above, and was obviously displeased at what we left and complained to the manager . We added another 20 dollars simply to get away from the unpleasant atmosphere. This ungracious and greedy attitude totally soured the evening and we would certainly not return or recommend the restaurant to friends. We ate in a number of New York restaurants during our stay and thankfully this was the only bad experience.

I have taken out-of-town guests to Gallagher's many times. It is amazing what can determine a dining experience, for good or for ill. I arrived a bit early and saw a friend sitting at the bar, so I walked to the bar and sat next to him. The bartender approached me and said, 'When there is a drink sitting on the bar in front of you, does that tell you anything? It means this seat is taken.' The guy was a real wise ass. He simply could have said, 'Excuse me, sir, this seat is taken.' But he needed to be a wise ass. So I walked away, but the encounter put me in a very foul mood. My party arrived, the food was fine, but my dining experience was ruined by the smart ass bartender. There are a LOT of great steakhouses in NYC, and I won't be eating at Gallagher's again. Why go somewhere just to get insulted??

My elderly friend and I dined here before going to the theater. I had asked for a quiet table and we were seated in a corner banquet. Service was efficient and not obsequious, thank goodness. We had the crabcake appetizer -- me for a main course, my friend as an appetizer. I had a very large plate of mushrooms to go with this. My friend had the shrimp scampi (five large shrimp which proved more than she could eat.) All the same, she had a generous slice of the cheesecake and some coffee before we left. It was nice to be able to converse without shouting!! Things were getting busy by the time we left.

Good steack but the quality of the side dishes was very mediocre. The staff was a little bit to old ( sorry) for the restaurant. At last there was a mood of ' routine' in the business.

First time dining here. We went pre-theatre with another couple. We shared the filet mignon which was very tender and cooked as ordered. The side dishes were enough to share with our group. A little pricey but well worth it. Drinks are also high priced, but expected in NY. Would go back again.

Hadn't been to Gallaghers in a few years and had a business colleague in from London who wanted to have dinner around mid-town west. Figured Gallagher's was a classic, old-school NY steak house he would enjoy, which was happily affirmed by the experience. Service was highly professional and first rate and the steaks terrific. Forgot what great, friendly ambiance the place had-- wonderful evening, capped by a very nice Bordeaux. All good!

Gallaghers is a classy restaurant with a staff that is tremendous. George and John helped make our experience enjoyable. Anyone who eats at Gallaghers knows first hand that they have the 'Best steaks on the planet!' Wish we lived closer so we could visit more often.

Everything was fabulous ! One of us ordered the bone in Filet Mignon - which didn't disappoint and I ordered the stuffed shrimp which was the best I have ever eaten. Cheesecake baked on the premises was over the top !!

Food was very good, but not Great! I think for those prices, the food should be phenomenal!! I don't think it was worth the price. In addition, They were out of one of the appetizers I wanted. The sides were just regular, nothing special. I had the pecan pie for dessert and thought it was not good, was dry and didn't seem fresh. Drink service was also a little slow . Not sure if I would go back due to the price.

After Ben Benson has closed, this may be a good alternative. \nPicturesque and noisy, the steak is good and the wine is accordingly.\nI will go there again, even though it is difficult to understand one's own words in that noisy surrounding.
