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.

Disappointed at what was to be a very special Father’s Day dinner. We had a 9:00pm reservation. We were seated close to 9:30pm.
Service was extremely slow. Our dinners took so long, we lost the Gallagher experience we set out to give my husband. We waited so long to have all of us all together for a Father’s Day celebration. The atmosphere was chaotic.
Our server was apologetic and left us with fruit in lieu of dessert.

Gallagher’s is our favorite steak restaurant. We were fortunate to have Adam wait on us. We have had the pleasure previously. He made our experience even more memorable. Hope to see him on our next visit.

Wonderful service and good food. Was expecting better though. After reading reviews, we were hoping for a flavorful meal but unfortunately our filets were bland and lacked any seasoning. Meat quality was top notch - it just needed some love!

Making the reservation was the right call! We got seated right when we showed up, at a great booth. From the start, service was fantastic. We had two 'partner' servers, which meant that we were getting frequent (but not annoying) attention. The food was brilliant, and came out really fast!
Because we decided to skip the cocktails, our bill for the four of us was much cheaper than we expected. We could have easily spent the same at a disappointing chain in Time Square. We'll be back.

I have been coming to Gallaghers for years. Excellent in all categories. Service, atmosphere and food exceptional.

It is a bit expensive however. Dinner for 2 was $350 with tip. We did get the most expensive steak with a few drinks. But I would plan on at least $ 100 per person.

We started with the lobster and shrimp dumplings served with a spicy soy sauce. Then we had filet mignon and lamb chops with a side of sautéed mushrooms. Everything was delicious. We decided to share a slice of creamy New York cheesecake with our coffee. Our dinner and dessert were perfection.

I usually pick the Palm Too, but we decided to give Gallaghers a try, and we were not disappointed. Most of the food was delicious - prime rib, although delicious, was served cold. This is often a problem with prime rib so I am giving the restaurant a pass on that. Big round table in the corner, but we had the bad luck of sitting next to six loud women (who when they sat down, told the waitstaff "We are loud!" - ladies, please don't ruin other peoples' dinner) - they all spoke at the same time, yelling to be heard over the woman sitting next to them. Our waitstaff were professional yet warm and gracious. Gallahers made this birthday celebration memorable. We will be back.

I was really hoping to write a great review but unfortunately I can't. This was an important business meal with 8 people at the table including myself. Although my clients may not have been dressed completely appropriately for the atmosphere, my money is the same color as everyone else and we should be treated that way. Our waiter seemed unenthusiastic to serve us, almost like he expected a cheap tip, but for a table our size tip was auto-included, so what did he have to worry about? I asked for my bone-in filet medium-rare & it came out almost well-done and flavorless. By this point it was already 10pm & I was too hungry to send it back. All of our appetizers & side dishes were good. I will not be returning or recommending this place to anyone. Go to American Cut in Tribeca...5 stars all around.

We hate at Galkagher's for my mother's birthday and all was very goods. Dishes were awesomand driks too. Waiters were very kind and answered to all need we had.
At the end they offered us birthday cake, and it was very kind.
I would come there again for sure.

We were visiting NYC from Texas and LOVED the food at Gallagher's! We enjoyed the whole experience so much that we ate there a second time within the week that we were visiting and took home some of the amazing steak sauce that they sell by the bottle!

Waiter was a very nice older man, I prefer to not name him. They brought me the wrong steak, took about 10 minutes to get it back. My wife ordered well done, but our nice waiter suggested rare with the butterfly cut, which did not help. It was also returned. When we asked for more bread, it never came until I stopped my waiter and asked him again 20 minutes later. Place was Monday nite rainy and not busy. Then The waiter was so friendly that he felt confident enough to intervene in one of our table conversations about medical issues. 🤦🏻‍♂️ As far as price, I’m used to paying for good food. However, this steak was OK, nothing too special about it, but the price was outrageous for what I got. Keep in mind that $50 and above “ plates” are only the steak. If you add any side is it additional , and at least $12 per side. I still left a good tip, but I would not be back. Atmosphere was nice though

Ordered the lobster cocktail as a starter and that was the best value! $19 for an entire Maine lobster. It was delicious. I decided to
Order the bone in sirloin as well. I ordered it medium rare and the steak was served to me medium-well/well done. Super
Disappointing from a steakhouse, when if you want to nail anything, that should be it. Lyonnaise potatoes as a side were meh. Service at the bar wasn’t great, had to flag down the server any time I needed anything. From menu, to wine list, etc. things that should be offered to begin with. Won’t be returning. Plenty of other amazing options in NY.

Our waiter was excellent, pleasant, and informative. My roasted rib steak was wonderful, as was the stuff shrimp my wife had. The staff in general was very professional and courteous.
The only negative for me is the a la carte pricing. Other than that I would recommend Gallaghers to anyone.
