If you are looking for New York City's fanciest, most fashionable, and most chi-chi new restaurant, keep looking. Peter Luger is not that kind of dining establishment, and it is enormously to its credit that it is not. What you will get instead at Peter Luger: old wood paneled walls and old tables; old waiters invariably male and sometimes charmingly... More

Pros - Peter Luger set the standard for steakhouses across the US. The establishment is an icon in Brooklyn and the greater US. - The environment is energetic and full of nostalgia. - Decent wine list. - We enjoyed the thick sliced, sizzling bacon. Cons - Our steak just wasn't that good. First, we ordered a steak for 3 medium... More

Most Importantly - Bring Cash as it is Cash only. I feel is it a standard steak house. If this is what you are looking for then it will fit the bill. I thought it was a bit over priced for the food but you are also paying for the experience of well trained qualified wait staff. Wait staff are... More

The best steak house I have been to. You need to make reservations early. It is always busy. You will enjoy it.

Bottom line, its just another steak house. With a reservation, we still had to wait a half hour to be seated. When they say everything is ala carte, they mean it. Your steak (pre-slced) is sold by itself. Each vegetables is sold separately. Leave your credit card at home. We all understand not taking Amex , but not taking Visa... More

As a 3rd generation American from Brooklyn this is the heart and soul of what New York is all about! Authentic steak aged to perfection, thick sweet bacon and the original sauce to die for which makes this historic place one of the best! Raw ambiance and classic chivalrous keeps us all wanting more...

I've read the reviews and had to try it but In my honest opinion, I have had better. The sauce is the best part. The steak was supposed to be medium rare but it was quite rare. Also too much butter for my taste, others may love it. I prefer Del Friscos over Peter Luger hands down. Make sure you... More

The guys love the amount of delicious steaks. I benefit when he brings some home. We love the food. Sure it's high priced but you pay for the quality of the delish!!!meals. I'd say if you're hungry and have a few dollars and great friends!!! GO!!
