After a week of searching for a a decent rare steak, I found it. You would think it was easy not to kill a fillet but these guys actually cooked it right. With it being a full restaurant getting anything of quality can be a challenge but they did it. Highly advise anyone to enjoy this place. Get a window... More

The concierge of our hotel suggested this steakhouse when we asked for one nearby. We are glad it was where we decided to eat. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. We were seated right away, although we did have a reservation for about 20 minutes later. The servers we very attentive and it seemed like all the servers tended all... More

You can never go wrong with dining here! The seafood tower is outstanding! Try the Gorgonzola brûlée topping for your steak...it's got bits of fatback / bacon....to die for. The service shines and the wine list is heavenly.

This is my 26th time eating here so I have a soft spot for this restaurant. I very seldom give a score of 5 but Smith and Wollensky definitely deserves it for one reason only - the constant quality of their meat. The service is excellent and even the side dishes are good. The only negative that I can give... More

Truly a great location on South Pointe. What could be better than sitting waterside with great friends, a delicious seafood tower followed by perfectly prepared steak? Did I mention an amazing wine list? Great service from the tall friendly Slovakian girl (can't remember her name sorry). I live in New York and rarely think to venture to this well established...

Not cheap, but well worth it. The Prime Rib and the Filet with Crab meat were out of this world. Service very good. We wanted a great steak while in New York and were not disappointed.

Twenty years later I was back to this crowded and good restaurant. I had a fantastic lobster, and excellent wine and a very nice greek waiter.
