    Four of us from London had the wine weekend dinner to celebrate a birthday and it was amazing. Fantastic service from Benny, he was just brilliant - funny and really looked after us. Food was really good, starters and filet mignon perfect. Oysters were excellent. We were seated outside which suited us perfectly as it was a hot evening. Great value and highly recommended - the wine weekend deal is great value.

    Always wonderful. The service is impeccable and attentive. Their steak is out of this world and the wine list totally amazing. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for! This is totally an old world steakhouse that you go to for a beautiful dining experience and amazing cuisine. The fact that they have been on the same corner since 1977 should speak volumes!

    Very good food but 1.5h in and we were still sat at the table with only bread. Otherwise very nice. Amusingly abrasive server - classic NY charm and on the cheeky side of rude so it added to the ambience/made us all smile. I’d go back.

    The food hands down was excellent — truly very, very good. Service was slow, maybe it was due to sitting outside. At one point we had to leave the table and flag down a waiter—at a restaurant of this stature, no one should ever have to do that. It could be a bad night, and to that, I would try this restaurant again and opt to sit inside.

    The Pork Chop came covered in onions and peppers, though the menu did not state it. I am allergic to peppers; they did take back the food, but it took them forever to replace it; received it when my husband was 3/4 finished with his meal. The new chop was dry, void of taste and the poorest quality piece of meat. The hash brown potato dish was burnt and the manager said, "It does have to be cooked well"... cooked well is one thing, but burnt is not. They didn't charge us for the incorrect items, but would rather have had a good meal instead. The manager never came over again to check in, very poor management & food.

    We had a memorable dinner at S & W. The wine, appetizers, and steaks were all delectable in their own right, and the steaks were cooked to each person’s preference in our party. Highly recommend the 28 day dry-aged steaks, particularly the bone-in ribeyes. Kudos to Tony D for outstanding service. The cheesecake (with a lemon essence) and chocolate cake were delicious desserts for our dad’s birthday. Thank you for a beautiful evening!

    Great food and service! The quality of the steaks were excellent, especially the hangar steak and the summer offering of roast corn. The decor is classic and inviting. Slightly noisier, but that was due to a full house. Highly recommend!
