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.

... 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!

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.

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.

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.

chocolate souffle!!!

no one would know that the BEST chocolate souffle would be found in this well known jazz and steak joint. but, ooooh is it good. if you get the funny waiter, he'll do a dripping and stabbing into the souffle act that is somewhat funny and endearing. there's great live jazz there as well-- and though i haven't had the steaks, many a people have complimented them for their great t-bones... next time we'll go there for dinner and dessert... not just dessert. the staff is friendly-- not overly nice or attentive but the souffle and live music make up for it all. prices are reasonable.

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!

steak for 2,3,4

I have been going to Knickerbockers for 15 years for brunch and dinner and have never had a bad experience. The ambience is a homey neighborhood restaurant that is cool without trying to be trendy. Regulars have been coming here for years and know all of the waitstaff by name. Be sure to request a booth when making a reservation and definitely get the steak. Unlike most places, the steak can be ordered for 1-4 people and comes with creamed spinach and a choice of potato (get the garlic mashed). Their drinks are great from bloody marys to martinis-they really know how it should be made.
