Yeah, well, people can say whatever they like. My cousin I went with says his pal can cook a steak as good on his grill. He’s an idiot. Peter Luger has it down. Cast iron pan, 1400 degree broiler, prime porterhouse flashed on one side....It is a great steak. And a reasonable value, btw. $120 each with a wedge, potatoes, and a couple of excellent manhattans. No complaints. Just don’t go with a cheapskate or someone who isn’t a real steak lover.More

The steak was good but the place was poorly maintained and the service was not good. We had a young server and Older servers were coming by to refill our waters. He was not attentive and will not speak to us. Very expensive for a...poor atmosphere and cleanest.More

I do not understand the hype. Luger's is in mediocre location with a crummy decor. The service is surly. They cut your beautiful steak so it gets cold immediately. When I politely asked the waiter not to cut my steak he ignored me.

After a 14-year hiatus, my wife and I finally returned to Peter Luger's. The star of the show was, without a doubt, the Porterhouse steak—the best we've ever had. Cooked to perfection, it was tender, juicy, and full of flavor. It was so tender that...it could be cut with just a fork, which speaks volumes about the quality of the meat and the skill of the chefs. The sides were equally impressive, with my wife declaring that the cream spinach alone is worth a trip to Brooklyn. Even the bread was noteworthy, a testament to the restaurant's commitment to quality in every aspect of the dining experience.More

A friend recommended a historic steakhouse established in 1887, just four years after the Brooklyn Bridge opened in 1883. Today, we decided to try it out, sharing a single steak, the Luger burger (a lunchtime exclusive), and some spinach. Surprisingly, the restaurant was about 90%...full, even though it was a regular weekday! Impressed, my friend mentioned he plans to bring his father-in-law from California here. Our meal, including three shared dishes and tax, cost around USD 121 before tips.More

Peter Lugar has been on my SOMEDAY list for at least 30 years. I'd heard good things about it, and on many trips to NYC (always Mid-town) it just seemed to be too far to go. We were in Williamsburg in February, so suddenly Peter...Luger's was only a simple Uber away. I'd delighted that we went. This was a combined Birthday - Valentines Day dinner (not on the 14th, I'll add), we showed up at about 6 WITHOUT reservations and the line thru the door made me thing Oh Dear, I've goofed. No, I did not goof. We were seated within minutes and every aspect from then till we paid the bill and left was as perfect as a restaurant meal can be. We ordered the wedge salad, jumbo shrimp, German fried potatoes, creamed spinach and steak for two. (we were hungry when we arrived). We each had a cocktail too. Our server was helpful and attentive, but every person working there was attentive; if anyone was walking by and saw a partially full glass of water, we were refiled almost instantly. I can't remember better service at any restaurant anywhere! During the meal, I casually and quietly mentioned, when he was carving the porterhouse, "give her all the best pieces, it's her birthday". Note that the strip-steak side of the cut was superb too, and it is my favored cut; the tenderloin was even better. We were stuffed, (you saw what we ordered) and could not finish the steak. When I asked for a doggie bag, I mentioned "we really are taking the leftovers to friends who have a dog". When our doggie bags arrived, there was our remainder, and a bag "full of bones from the kitchen". Reuben the Dog thought he'd died and gone to heaven! When asked about dessert, we had to decline. (see "stuffed" above) Our server and many of the staff came out with a big bowl of Shlag (takes me back to Vienna) with a candle in it, and sang Happy Birthday! Did I mention BEST SERVICE? Peter Luger's is every bit as good, nay, BETTER than, any description I'd ever heard. DO make a reservation, though.More

My partner and I came for his birthday! I want to reiterate that it is much better to come with a reservation as the wait for a table during the weekend can be quite long, and reservations tend to go quickly. The bacon is barely...smokey and a great texture to chew, but can be a bit oily. The steak for two is perfectly portioned and is served at the perfect temperature to eat, and you can even take the bone back with you upon request! We also had an apple strudel to share, which our waiter thoughtfully cut in half for us. The homemade schlag is also quite good - thicker in appearance than regular whipped cream, it retains all the same flavor while giving a unique aftertaste once you swallow. My partner liked it so much he ended up drowning his half of the strudel in it. The strudel itself is delightfully caramelized on top, giving it a great crunch to contrast with the softness of the interior. A bit pricey all in all but a wonderful meal regardless.More

I had known of Peter Luger for many years, but hadn't had a chance to visit the restaurant until this past summer. We came here on a weekday evening and it was busy, but we were able to be seated quickly. Our service was impeccable...and our waiter was great from start to finish. We had a glass of wine and beer to start and it paired well with the complimentary bread (3 choices to choose from). Our porterhouse steak (steak for two) was absolutely amazing and was one of the best steaks we have ever had. We also loved the key lime pie with schlag and the schlag had such a great tasty and texture. It's a cash or debit only place, so plan accordingly, but it's a wonderful restaurant and it's so much fun to experience a bit of old New York.More

Thank you for your time to read this. We went to dinner, had reservations at 8:45pm on 1/7/2024. #1 - Was seated about that time. #2 - Waiter came by, dropped off the menus and walked away. #3 - Waiter came back a few minutes...later, asked what we wanted to drink and what did we want to order to eat...... (just the beginning of rushing our evening) #4 - Ordered drinks, told waiter that we were not ready to order meals yet (first time here) #5 - He came back, just a few minutes later without drinks and asked again if we were ready to order our meal...... Asked to give us a couple of more minutes..... He went and got our drinks and brought them to us.... #6 - We went ahead and ordered our appetizers and meal.... (we had probably been seated all of 5 minutes) #7 - They brought out our appetizers and meal all at the same time... Probably 5 minutes after we ordered..... (just feeling more rushed....) #8 - Appetizers were ok, steaks were so-so. #9 - Halfway through the meal, they brought the check...... #10 - Have had much better steaks for 1/2 the price. Have had much better service at places for 1/2 the price. Have had much better enjoyment of the meal and experience at other places for 1/2 the price...... My rating would have been much higher if the service would have been more relaxed.... Because, I knew what the price point was for this place. Spend good money, expect a good experience..... Sometimes, I feel I am treated better at a McDonalds than here. I won't even go down the road with my personal ability to put our a steak that people will never forget..... (we won 17th in the world at a Steak Cookoff Competition) We ate at nice restaurants across NYC/Brooklyn for our time there. This was bottom on the list.... Lesson learned.......More

Steak and Fries would be my death row meal, so I thought what better occasion to pop my Peter Luger cherry than the beginning of my 28th trip around the sun. We could die any day, really. Everybody and their momma talks about Peter Luger....When you speak steak, you speak Peter Luger. It is the 4th most reviewed restaurant in NYC, and the most reviewed steakhouse. All this to say, I went in with high expectations, but how could I not? My 3 homies and I arrived at 8:15 for our res, but of course our big homie was 5 min late. You can't really chirp big bro lol y'all know how that is ahahah. I hadn't worn a suit in a MINUTE, so I thought I would throw one on as I felt this upscale Steakhouse called for it. I felt like Conor McGregor walking into T-Mobile Arena, or Frank Lucas at the Ali vs Frazier boxing match... but I wasn't wearing Chinchilla so I guess not ahahaha. When I entered, I immediately noticed 2 things: 1) I was WAY overdressed. Patrons in here were in hoodies and just plain T-shirts. Idk, this is probably a me thing or a factor of the times but I thought people would be DRIPPIN in here. Not even a little bit of a dress code? Idk I might just be trippin. 2) It was BRIGHT in here. I was expecting a dimly lit setting, but that was not the caseI felt way too seen. The menu is simple and straightforward, which you don't really see anymore so I loved that. We ordered the Caesar Salad, Thick Bacon, Porterhouse for 2, Rib Steak for 2, Fries, German Potatoes, and the Cream Spinach. At these prices, I was expecting to have a fun rapport with the server. Okay maybe a rapport is expecting too much, but at least a welcoming energy. He honestly could not have been more disinterested in us. The only time he seemed interested was when I asked for the check ahahaha bro pulled that thing out of his shirt pocket so quick and just stood there while I fished for my debit card. In contrast to the service, the food was fantastic. Everything from the bread to the bacon to the german potatoes to the steak was delicious. The porterhouse was the standout, as it came on a piping hot slanted plate and was perfectly charred on the outside with a beautiful red to pink interior. However, my jaw didn't drop. At a place with the reputation Peter Luger has, I desperately wanted my jaw to connect with the floor. But it just didn't. I have had better steak, and definitely better service, in the city. Off the top of my head Keens, Gallaghers, and Wolfgangs come to mind. Damn did you know Wolfgang Zwiener used to be a waiter here. The student really became the master... But I get it. They have such a big name that they don't even have to earn business anymore. Why put in the extra effort when customers will still come in no matter the service they provide. The crown is heavy. Maybe it's just a me thing. Expectations are the root of all heartache, and mine walking in were as exorbitant as the prices here. However, cracks in the foundation are beginning to show. That dude wrote the NYT article back in 2019 absolutely ripping them. They lost their Michelin star in 2022. The story of Icarus comes to mind, when he ignored Daedalus’s instructions not to fly too close to the sun, causing the beeswax in his wings to melt, and he fell from the sky as a result. Okay I'm getting dramatic now ahahahaha. 3.5 stars so will give 3 here and 4 on google. IG @jnov_ Tiktok @jnov__More
