Gallagher's Steak House Restaurant Review

: A wall of dry-aging steaks greets diners at this refreshed speakeasy-turned-steakhouse in the Theater District. Photos of famous New Yorkers adorn the walls and white tablecloths top the tables in the classed-up restaurant that dates from 1927. Most people come for the steaks, grilled over hickory coals in the sparkling open kitchen. But the roast prime rib and lamb chops are good choices, too, and the veal chop Parmigiana is satisfying (as well as mammoth). Seafood fans will rejoice at the raw bar and crudo selections that complement the salmon steak and jumbo crab cake entrées. All is served on a traditional trolley by the seasoned waitstaff. Side dishes, made up of all the standards, are buttery enough for steakhouse regulars. Order a soufflé at the beginning of your meal --- flavors change but the result is a constant delight. The wine list is extensive.

It's a great restaurant

This restaurant is probably the best steak you will have in New York.The meat is aged perfectly and you don't even get a steak knife,you should be able to cut it with the serrated dinner knife that is there already. So my advice is forget what the previous person said and check this restaurant out,not glamourous surroundings but great Steak!

After reading the review from Gayot we expected much more. Getting in and out of the restaurant in a timely manner was not a problem. The food was very average. I would compare it to any Ponderosa steak house throughout the country. Service was the same.....average. From the person seating you to the waiter. Would not recommend this steakhouse.
