Steakhouse
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.

Gallaghers’ guests are welcome in a wide variety of attire – from elegant casual to business suits. We respectfully request that you refrain from wearing hats, sports jerseys, tank tops and shorts.

It’s been six years since the first visit from the UK to Gallaghers for my wife and myself, all I remember is how special the experience was and how fantastic the Steak was!!

We decided on this trip to try to recreate the experience and I have to say Gallaghers did not disappoint, the only thing I would say is the food was superlative, the service was outstanding and the the ambience was incredible, I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone, please go there and I promise you won’t be disappointed 😀

Got the smallest table possible. Very unpleasant experience. The focus of this restaurant is not to provide a nice customer experience but to make as much money as possible. We will not return!

We took friends for the first time on Friday night 920/19. They prefer fish and were a little apprehensive about going to a Steak House. But we all enjoyed our meals and there was enough non meat options to accommodate everyone.

Patrick our waiter was terrrific and accommodated our every request.

Absolutely think Gallagher's it is the quintessential NewYork Steak House

Great night at Gallagher’s! Steak was cooked perfectly and so was the lobster. The wait staff was excellent and knew it was our anniversary. It was definitely pricey but that’s what you expect in NYC.

Must confess Gallaghers pushes all my buttons. Love old-time restaurants that are still on the top of their game: a genuine rarity. Without doubt Gallaghers is. Unbelievably handsome for a steakhouse: think neighbor, dowdy, sleazy Palm West, they offer a prix fixe lunch that may be the best deal in town.We all had soup: Manhattan Clam Chowder and lentil & Chorizo. Both, generous bowls were extremely good. Bread and butter were superb. A lamb chop dish with creamed spinach and whipped potatoes was very satisfying and generous. Cheese cake and key lime pie both of the highest order. Can't wait to return.

Great classic NYC steakhouse with long history. Right in Times Square. The dry cured steaks are excellent and an excellent wine list. Always on my go to when in NYC.

Sorry but I was expecting more. From the outside, it looked very good, but I was very disapointed. The meat looks enormous in the plate but in the end we share a few slice with my husband. The side dishes were very basic (mushed potatos and mushrooms), and least but not last, was wine was too warm.
My husband had a hair in his plate; we mentionned it and he got a new Glass of water.

An exceptional evening where everything was faultless. The venue has fantastic character, outstanding staff and excellent quality food. I could not have asked for more even when they brought over a birthday cake for my wife unprompted. I can not recommend this place enough and will definitely be back next time we are in New York.

Service was great. Staff very responsive, but it all boils down to the food. For what you pay, the food should be among the best I ever had, but sadly it wasn’t. Steak was fine but not as flavorful as the staff was hyping. The baked potato was warm not hot, and the Burrata and coal fired pepper appetizer was a disappointment. The venue was tight and loud.

Arrived at around 5 pm on a Sunday. My wife and I shared a 14oz tenderloin steak with a lobster tail and salad. The tenderloin was ordered mid-rare to med, had little flavor and was somewhat tough and not as tender as other tenderloins we've had. The lobster and salad were great, but had to keep flagging down the waiters and asking for water. I was looking forward to Gallagher's since we have enjoyed the one in Las Vegas at New York - New York Hotel & Casino.

We had reservations for 6pm and arrived around 4:30. We sat at the bar to have some drinks before dinner. The bartender was rude to us. He looked bothered when my boyfriend asked him for a drink. I was looking over the cocktail menu trying to decide what I wanted and he walked away and never acknowledged us again. Another bartender started the shift and he told him to find out what we wanted. (After my boyfriend reminded him that we were sitting there). The other bartender was very friendly and ended up making my drink (after waiting 20 minutes). Besides that the restaurant was wonderful. The food was delicious, our server was great and we would definitely return.

One of the best steaks I’ve had. I appreciated that Gallagher’s was able to retain the beautiful flavor of the aged meat while balancing the charred flavor from the grill. The cook on my steak was a perfect medium rare.

Sides and cocktails were also notable, we had the onion rings and creamed spinach. The creamed spinach was creamy without being drenched in cheese and cream. You could still taste the flavor of the spinach. The dipping sauce for the onion rings is something special.

Overall would recommend! Service was exactly what you would expect coming to a high end steakhouse: polite, attentive, and accommodating.
