It was our 50th anniv so we were very picky. Are we glad we picked S and W. From the free champagne cocktail from hte bar to the fre appetizer from the chef to the lovely and thoughtful card signed by all the staff, this was a class act--not to mention the steak"to die for"--the restaurant is housed in an old armory building which looks like a castle, the service is top-notch and we have paid more in mediocre places, would go back for our next anniv. Loved it!!

My wife & I agree that the best steak we ever had was at Smith & Wollensky. A nice restaurant to go to when you are in the city.

My wife and I had dinner here and really enjoyed ourselves. Classic New York atmosphere, loud and bustling, fun, energetic atmosphere. Our waiter was knowledgeable, classy, and efficient. The dry aged rib eye was amazing, my wifes fillet Oscar was outstanding. The wine stewart recommended a wine that we cannot get anywhere - It was just what we were looking for. We had the chocolate cake for dessert...IT WAS HUGE !!!! Great times - Bring your appetite !!!

What a mediocre restaurant! I visited Smith & Wollensky during restaurant week, and you'd hope that they'd put their best foot forward. I ordered a 10 oz filet mignon medium rare, pea soup, key lime pie and creme brulee. The steak was too dry; I felt like I was done after one bite. The Pea Soup was too thick - it was more of a dip. As for the desserts, I'm not sure if you're supposed to enjoy the crust of a pie more than the filling itself... it was just a bit too sour. The texture of the creme brulee was too soft, and you can't really taste anything. Above all, there wasn't any thing that "WOWed" me at that restaurant. I felt like the quality of this restaurant could have came from a chain restaurant -- except you pay two to three times more.
