What a waste of time and way to much money. The waiter named Manny could of cared less if our party of 6 was even there. He provided bad service and did not care about how much time we waited for our food. Then he could not even get our check correct. WAY OVERPRICED. STAY AWAY.

The place is traditional. The food is delicious, and the service is caring. It is an experience you must try but it is always full so take your time.
As much time as we spend in New York on business and for pleasure, we"ve never found time to make it to Peter Luger for dinner. Finally, while doing a trade show at the new Brooklyn Expo Center, we were able to fit it in. It was a last minute decision to do the trade show so by the time I thought to call the restaurant for reservations, they were long gone. Still, the receptionist gave us a time at the last seating at 10:45 on a Friday night, late for us, but that gave us a chance to rest a little and freshen up after the show.When we arrived at the restaurant, we were pleasantly surprised to find that although the place was still busy, there was no waiting line, and we were seated immediately. Although the place is expensive, the seating was rather rustic. The noise level wasn"t too bad, although we had two large groups (one rather rambunctious) nearby; still, we could easily carry on a conversation.Our waiter was quite pleasant without any of the stereotypical brusqueness we expected. He provided menus, but since we knew what we wanted, he took both our drink and food order right away. For starters, sliced tomatoes and onions with Luger sauce and a couple of thick bacon slices. The tomatoes were firm but flavorful, and the bacon delicious. Our medium rare steak for two was done to perfection; exceptional! The fried potatoes side was okay but nothing spectacular. We had the apple strudel for dessert with a mound of schlag, way more than we needed. And as a topper, our waiter gave us more than a dozen of Luger"s large foil-covered chocolate geld.Until our visit, the best steak we"d ever had was at the Cattlemen"s Restaurant at the Oklahoma City stockyards. The steak and sides at Peter Luger were better, although far more expensive. For a meal like ours with drinks, expect to pay about $175 before taxes and tip. And . . . don"t forget to bring cash; credit cards aren"t accepted.
