Overpriced for what you receive, you are paying for the name more than the service or food. It's decent but for the price you have many other high quality options such as Peter Lugars.

The service here is excellent and the food very good. I found the flavor of the steak slightly below some other ny steak houses. I enjoyed the hash browns and asparagus and the wine was excellent. It's an historic destination worth a trip

Wanted to try Sparks due to it's history and the reviews of the food. Service was very good. Old school decor. None of the modern cold minimalistic decor. Food portions were big and the food was very good. I'd go again.

iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal

Anything from smart casual to formal dinner attire is fully acceptable , no official dress code that we were aware of but most diners were smart casual. I would say trainers were unacceptable and you would likely feel under... More
