I had a great experience with my girlfriend at Peter Luger's. We went for lunch and were seated fairly promptly at the time of our reservation. There's a bar in the front in case you have to wait. The waiter was pretty good for the most part however this isn't one of those places where they will coddle you and pretend to be your best friend. He was a bit curt but attentive which is fine with me. He did disappear towards the end of our meal so it took a while to get our check but otherwise no issues. We started with a slice of bacon and a wedge salad. The wedge salad was huge and tasty. I would skip the bacon next time, it's nothing special as in it's just a thick slice bacon nothing more. My girlfriend went with the burger cooked medium rare and fries. The burger was delicious, the texture and flavor were amazing. She said it was probably the best burger she's ever had and at ~$17 with fries it's reasonably priced. I went with a rare ribeye which was delicious. It had a good amount of fat but not too much and had a great flavor. I can't say it was the best steak I've ever had but I can't say it wasn't either. It was good but it didn't blow me away though I'm not sure if any steak can blow me away. I thought the steak sauce was terrible personally. I don't use steak sauce normally but figured I'd give it a try, it was dreadful. We had a side of creamed spinach which was good. Beer and wine selection were good as well, the waiter recommend an excellent beer to pair with the steak. I don't go to steakhouses much because with a hot stove and a cast iron skillet you can make a killer steak at home. I'd been dying to go to Peter Luger so this was a special occasion. My previous steakhouse of choice was Del Friscos but I think Peter Luger's has popped to the top of my list. Next time I definitely want to try the porterhouse.

I am a big steak eater, and even though there was a lot of hype, it was still a great experience, certainly worth it. Let me start by saying the steak sauce alone may be worth it, and you can get whatever cut, and have it aged in house, which is a treat. The decor is a bit rustic, to invoke a butcher, and while I typically enjoy a more formal setting, I felt it helped the ambiance and made the meal feel more authentic. A bit pricey, but overall definitely a not to be missed steakhouse.

A well made steak is always delicious, and nothing beats the original. Order up a side of thick cut bacon for an appetizer, get steak for X number of people (X = your party size), and order some sides. Usual go-to's are the creamed spinach, and German fried potatoes. Leave room for dessert, get the sundae, and enjoy the "schlag" (aka much thicker, sweeter whipped cream) on top.

Not sure how this place got a good reputation, its spit and saw dust at best with meat swimming in fat. The "onion" and whatever else you get as an apertiser, is more like an off putter. Staff are rude as hell and no way on earth is the steak a) worth the trip b) worth the price. Abe and Louis in Boston and Old Ebbs in Washington make this place look like Wendy's - the famous New York steak is fast becoming a myth thats used to tempt tourists into thinking the food is good, which it just isnt.

First and foremost: CASH ONLY!!!! You should bring at least $200, better safe than sorry. :) I absolutely love New York. The night life, all the different places to see, and of course the food! On my most recent trip, my friends and I all had the pleasure of dining at Peter Luger, or so we thought. First thing first, OVER-HYPED. When you have a Michelin Star I expect the best, sadly my friends and I left disappointed. Service: The waiters are rude but in a sarcastic kind of way. It's the same way that my friends and I would talk to each other so I slightly enjoyed it. If you want the best service you won't find it here, but as long as you're not super snobby the service will do just fine. Bacon: This was the item I was most excited to try, even more so than the porterhouse. Bacon is one of the greatest gifts to man, so when I came to peter Luger I ordered bacon on bacon on bacon (3 pieces of bacon). The bacon is thick cut and soft (just the way I like it). My one concern with the bacon was that it was so thick it tasted a like a slice of HAM, still delicious. Overall I would definitely recommend the bacon, just don't get 3 slices like I did, way too much. Steak: The medium-rare porterhouse came charred and cooked to perfection. It definitely looked delicious, sadly it didn't taste that way. It's not that the steak wasn't good, it 's just that I couldn't fathom how in the world this steak could have gotten a star. Tender? Yes. Flavorful? No. I've had $25 steaks with more flavor. Creamed Spinach: This was by far the best dish I had at Peter Luger. I am not a spinach person, but I could not stop scooping away at the creamed spinach. Soft and rich in flavor, this was by far the best spinach I've ever had in my life. Overall: If Peter Luger was 1/2 the price I would definitely recommend it to everyone; but it isn't. If you absolutely feel this is a place you must try before you die, by all means go ahead. Just don't go with super high hopes or you might be disappointed.

What happens at Peter Luger's stays at Peter Luger's. Dale remembers going with her grandfather 60 years ago. They dunked rye bread in the fatty juices, ate tomatoes & sliced onions in Peter Luger Sauce, enjoyed sides of hash browns and creamed spinach and, of course, a porterhouse steak for two eaten completely. Normally, Dale watches my eating like a hawk. Once a year we just push reality aside and do what we've done since we were kids. We were recently asked "what makes a Restaurant an Institution" and used Peter Luger's as an example. Nothing has changed in 60 years. In our family, we number 5 generations of Peter Luger clients. Clearly, this qualifies as an institution. Let me tell you a story to show how cool they are and how this generation of the Forman Family honors tradition.. Dale had a Peter Luger credit card with a very low number and lost it some years ago. They replaced it with a card that had a current number on it. When we were recently there and Dale said to the waiter that she had one of the first cards, he looked at the number and said "no you don't, this number is from about 5 years ago". So I wrote to the owners and they replaced it with a card with the original number.
