Uncle Jacks had an amazing atmosphere, kind staff, and amazing food. We had dinner reservations at 6 and was seated immediately. Sadly though, they were short staffed and it was very clear. Our drinks came out immediately and our appetizers came shortly after. Yet, our entrées that we order with our food never came. We had a broadway play at 8pm a short subway ride away and we had to get the check without our main course at 7:45. They were nice and didn’t charge us for our steaks we ordered and never received. I would just be aware that it’s very apparent that they were short staffed and that did have a effect on service. If you have nowhere to be for awhile it’s a great place right now to get good food. Otherwise, I would go somewhere else.

We waiting 45 minutes for our meal. We sat down at 6PM. We would up missing the first five minutes of the Ranger game.

Wait staff was good but it looked like they were short help. The maître d keep dodging us when we caught his attention and asked him to come by our table.

Our dinners came out so late that we were ready to leave and just pay for our drinks and the appetizers.

Would have been nice if the maître d came by and explained what was going on and maybe offer us a drink for our inconvenience by that did not happen.

If you need to get to the Ranger game make sure you make your reservation for 5:30 or earlier.

Man who met us at front door would not let us in and told us the kitchen was closed. After telling him multiple times we had a reservation, we were finally let in.

The hostess was very nice.

Waited almost 30-40 minutes to get asked if we wanted water or anything to drink.

Very underwhelming. I’m very aware there are issues at every level when you dine out but it shouldn’t take a half hour to get a drink. They were out of several wines by the bottle and several menu items. We also felt the bigger tables were certainly more taken care of. There were only 2 tables when we got to our table so the service should have been better. The food was not hot when it got to our table. I will not be going back.

The steaks were fantastic. But the service was very slow. We asked for bread and butter. Instead of butter, they brought us a little thing of sour cream, which looked a lot like whipped butter. Apparently the same thing happened to the table next to us as well. My wife ordered a glass of Chardonnay, and upon tasting it she it was not good. They graciously replaced it with a different one, which was good, but the whole thing took longer than it should have and we had a show to catch. Food was FANTASTIC, but the service that night was not so great. Lots of mistakes. Mostly men eating there. I did not see any ladies

We had a concert at MSG and decided to eat at uncle Jack’s. We have not been here since the pandemic but their food is still just as good as remember it. We enjoyed some nice wine and expresso martinis with our dinners.

Great place, quality food, professional and friendly staff. Mark, our waiter, was very attentive and worked with our timing as we were off to a concert. Uncle Jack's is our 'go to" place for great food and an authentic NYC steakhouse experience! Velvet Banquettes, fringed chandeliers, visible meat locker and waiters in tuxedos!

My wife and I had a great meal Friday 11/26/21 at Uncle Jack's. We had a cozy booth and the restaurant was fairly quiet. Great wine and drinks. We had the seafood platter for two (clams, oysters, shrimp, lobster tail for an appetizer and the 12 oz. filet and 20 oz. bone in filet for dinner. 12 oz. capped with blue cheese. Perfectly cooked. The waiter (sorry to say I cannot remember his name???!!!) was friendly and on point. We were never rushed and will be back. Great spot on 9th Ave. I'm assuming when Hudson Yards fully opens, Uncle Jack's will be a hard to get reservation.

Uncle Jacks Westside is underrated on Yelp and other sites ! Its a great time to go out to dinner ! I think there are alot of inspired chefs our there after their hiatus from covid. The wait staff at Uncle Jacks was ON ! The steaks were incredible as was the garlic mashed potatoes ! We finished up with the creme brulee and 2 espresso coffees to keep us going although we didnt really need them because Dave Matthews killed it ! Last show of his tour. What a 25th Wedding Anniversary ! A night for the ages !

The servers were rude and couldn’t get us out of there fast enough. They were literally turning off the lights and taking the pepper off the table despite other tables still having full glasses of wine. Won’t be back!

My steak was way over cooked and burnt. I asked for medium rare towards rare and it was well done. The" family portion " sides were barely enough for 2 people. The staff tried to hurry us out so they could go home not service you would expect from this establishment. It was supposed to be a celebration for running the marathon instead it was a disappointment. I would not recommend this restaurant .

We made our post-COVID return to Uncle Jack’s on Friday, November 5th before the Billy Joel concert. It was our first trip back after all of the COVID closures. We were so excited to be back and not surprisingly, Uncle Jack’s has not lost their touch. From their top-notch service at the bar (thank you Deena!! We missed you and were so happy to see you back) to their amazingly delicious food, it’s like nothing changed!! We returned the next night for dinner and again sat with Deena. She is a rock star behind the bar!! Our meal was outstanding and we can’t wait to get back there the next time we’re in NYC.

Food was terrific! The ambiance leaves something to be desired. It is much too dark on the upper level! We had to use the flashlights on our phone at times to see. The waiter had ZERO personality. Perhaps suffering from light deprivation……🤣.
There are two lights out on the sign outside. This is unacceptable. This is a high end restaurant and these little things matter!
