EXCELLENT STEAK and SUPREB SERVICE!

I had dinner with my husband this evening here and it was such a pleasure to be taken care of, and taken care of well. The waiter, Sean knew exactly what to do and was unobtrusive. The T-Bone for 2 was one of the top 3 I have ever had and the creamed spinach was by afr the best I have had. the ceasar salad was amazing. Try the garlic mashed as well!

11 year old girl's opinion

Hello fellow New yorkers. I am an 11 year old girl who has gone to knickerbocker so many times before but the most recent time I went was a disaster... My mother, Grandmother, and I went to knickerbocker recently. We had a horrible time. First of all there was a long line of people and we had reservations My grandmother could hardly stand up anymore (she is old and diabetic) so we asked for a seat. Other people that came into the restaurant after us had already been seated. We asked the owner for a table and he exploded into a fit of yelling and all we did was ask politely for a table. My Mother felt very insulted and like any other person would do she told him we were never coming back. His reply back was ""What do i care"". We then left feeling very sorry for anybody who has ever had to deal with him. We also left with mad empty stomachs.

Spendy But Yummy

Even though its not cheap, the food is just incredible. The steaks taste as good as the hamburgers which are phenomenal. The garlic mash potatoes are excellent as well, makes my mouth water just typing about this now.

GREAT DINNING

I RECENTLY HAD DINNER HERE AND HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE. THE MENU WAS EXTENSIVE AND IT WAS HARD MAKING A DECISION. BUT I DECIDED ON THE STEAK AND I WAS PLEASED. THE FOOD IS\nDELICIOUS AND THE STAFF WAS VERY CORDIAL. I WOULD DEFINITLEY GO BACK. I RECOMMEND IT.

Fabulous porterhouse steak!!!

Easier to get to and easier for most to get into than Peter Luger and though there's no Luger steak sauce, the meat is comparable. Enormous portions, so steak for one is ample for two. It's cooked to perfection, served sliced & on the bone in sizzling pan. Accompanied by variety of wonderful potatoes and creamed spinach. Added perk is you're not limited to steak house side dishes, so you can get a superb caesar salad, many other choices to go with your steak. Large menu is sure to please non-meat eaters also. There is usually (or maybe always) live music starting at 9pm. Likely to please most everyone, locals, visitors, finicky eaters, big eaters. Clubby feel with banquettes, photos of the streets from years ago.

... And Good Jazz Too

ALWAYS dependable. Ambiance, Service, and food. We have been there dozens of times and it never misses. No matter who we bring with us, they are impressed. Even New Years Eve was perfect. Everything on the menu is just right and one of the best steaks in town. Knickerbocker is a jewel of a restaurant. Hope they never find out how much they could actually charge for their food!\nA Great - Dependable place to dine and enjoy good Jazz!

Delicious & Good Service!!

I've been a fan of this place since I came to NYC years ago. Excellent service for each visit. I highly recommend the smoked salmon and caesar's salad, as well as caviar pie!! The famous T-bone steak is also quite a taste. If you 're going in a group don't order the bigger portions-1) too difficult to have it cooked the way you want it 2) the bigger the portion, the smaller each person will get. So, every 2 ppl. should get a T-bone for one, not all 4 of you getting T-bone for 4. Trust me, it's a huge difference. Also their chocolate souffle is not bad at all. I wouldn't try their pasta though, it's not so good. Other dishes that I didn't mentions are rather inconsistent in quality.

inconsistent

An institution in the West Village, Knockerbocker is one of those restaurants where you can either have the meal of your dreams or the meal from hell. Last night, I had the most delicious pork chops. My dining companion had a steak with so much fat on it that he had to send back it. The service is great, the prices are very fair, and the restaurant is a throw back to old gentlemen's clubs. Most of the diners are elderly. Hip it ain't, but I do return from time to time with mixed results.

Watch out for ripoff music charge!

Our dinner took over two hours because of the slow service. Since we didn't get the check until after the live music had played for 15 minutes, our bill included a music charge per person. The fine print on the menu says all people who are still seated at a certain time will be charged.

One bad experience

Two twentysomethings treated a friend who is leaving the working world for law school to a nice meal. Habitues (via parents) of the KBG for many years, we reserved a table. Two yummy starters, two bottles of wine and two execrable entrees later ('medium rare' steak burned outside, gray within, INEDIBLE ribs so packed with gristle that they were -a lifetime first-) we thanked the waitress, paid the bill (not including the ribs, thankfully) for a $70 steak and music charge, gave generous tip and asked to see the manager. He said that we were intoxicated (how can you contest that?), that the meat 'always comes from the same supplier,' never apologized for the ruined celebration, and finally kicked us out, saying he did not need patrons like us. At least two longtime customers with expense accounts, lost forever. We don't dine where we have been treated so shamefully.
