A group of us (6) came here for a business dinner during a 2-day business trip. The ambiance was "old school" but full of character! The wait staff was very attentive. The menu was limited, but had enough variety. I ordered the filet - OMG, it seemed like it was half the size of my head! I wasn't expecting the... More

This place is a victim of its own success. What started out as an intimate, top quality steak house is now a huge restaurant with a flood of tourists coming through. From a business perspective they've done the right thing and embraced this, but to some extent have lost what made them great in the first place - victims of... More

The first time I visited here I was amazed at how amazing the speaks were.... Nothing g has changed over 20 years later. I've been here maybe 100 times every time it blows me away. Like many restaurants of this stature, it has its own interesting history. Sparks makes their steak in their own way and it works

I felt slightly imitated with the service as clearly pushy on up selling especially the wines. Ideal for 5-6 business people. when it was just two of us felt out of place and rushed. Perhaps this is just NY style.

Was recommended this steak house a few times and finally tried it. Ambiance is old school, service is excellent, food very good. Menu choices are not as vast as comparable establishments, yet they serve whatever on the menu in a great taste. Definitely recommended.

I always wanted to eat here. I am a big movie guy so I wanted to see if this was amazing. It was good but not the best I have ever had.

Beautiful decor, wonderful service, great bar & very good food! This is always the case at Sparks. They have been doing it right forever so the experience is always first class and you will not be rushed. Although it's a "steak house", Sparks offers a wide variety of other things which is great for anyone who may not be in... More

We dined at Sparks Steak House on E 46th on 1/20/17. The restaurant is absolutely one of the finest dinning experiences we have ever had. We loved everything about the place including the excellent staff. We started with drinks at the bar, chatting with the two bartenders. We were escorted to our table and ordered the lump crab meat and... More

My husband and I and another couple went here for dinner. From the time we sat down to the time we left we had great service. I am not a big beef eater so I had the sea bass and it was wonderful! My husband had strip and he said it was delicious. They have an impressive wine list. Definitely... More

This is a true NY steak restaurant steeped in history and tradition. We had a wonderful lunch here, the service was great and the steaks absolutely perfect. The staff were very helpful with regards to choosing our dishes. An excellent wine list and we were allowed to relax and take our time over the lunch.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
