Took my husband to T Bar for his 31st birthday. He was looking for a good steak and I chose the place by the menu. Being a vegetarian, it's hard to find a steakhouse to eat at, and T Bar gave me options to chose from as well as my husband plenty of steak options. The food was amazing, from the bread basket, to the beet and goat cheese salad, to the vegetarian risotto. My husband had the iceberg salad that was humongous, the 8 oz filet, and baked potato trimmed out with bacon bits, sour cream and chives. He ate each last drop.

The surprise of the night came when they brought my husband a huge brownie sundae with a candle in it. The surprise was I only told them it was a birthday when I made the reservations 2 days prior! The attention to detail was great.

Oh, the bottle of wine we had, a Pinot Noir, was pure perfection!

With great interior design, and fabulous furnishing, T-bar is an automatic attention grabber. In addition to it being constantly filled with a hip crowd, and having an amazing look to it, the food is the best yet. High quality meats cooked to perfection are brought out to you still sizzling from the kitchen and are the taste makes your taste buds go crazy. Even from the first cut as your knife pulls through the tender meat as if its butter you can tell this steak house is different. I highly recommend it and its the best food i have ever tasted.

My favorite fancy restaurant in the city. I always say I'm going to get something different but I can never do it. When you find an awesome steak, you don' t want to pass it up in favor of trying some potentially bland hunk of meat. I've tried my companions meals and they are always good but nothing is as perfect as that filet they have. Salads are awesome-great flair, presentation, use of fresh ingredients. The only low point is that I'm not rich enough to go more often and I've never really had a great dessert there. The interior is beautiful, I love the lighting. Service has never been anything but great.

I went here for dinner last night with my husband and it was the worst place I had been in a long time. The hostess was the rudest human being I have come in contact with in a restaurant. Our server was not much better. The steaks were grossly overpriced for what you got. My pork chop was overcooked and it took nearly a half hour for them to attempt to correct the problem, while my husband decided to stick with his bloody T Bone. The creamed spinach was too creamy and the mashed potatoes were terribly underwhelming. The service was slow; no one seemed to be able to get it together. I waited for the manager to apologize, although she seemed caught up in her own conversation with her friends or the nasty hostess. I spoke with my friends who had been to T Bar and the vast majority were disappointed and would not return.
THERE'S BETTER FOOD AT EJ'S ACROSS THE STREET! A DEFINITE DON'T!

My friends wanted to check this place out for Restaurant Week over the winter and ended up highly disappointed. Three us us ordered a-la-carte and the rest of us ordered from the dinner prix fix menu, which was not impressive at all. The waitress forgot about our drinks; we had to remind her twice to bring everyone's drinks out, as well as an extra plate setting. If I'm paying $15 for cocktails and wine, I expect it to be delivered without attitude. The steak was OK, I much prefer Ruth Chris' Steakhouse, and the dessert seemed like it was made by first graders during a science experiment- my chocolate mousse came out plain, undecorated in a bowl, like someone just slathered it in there and tried to pass it off as dessert. It's not worth the money; there are so many better places so please do your research before coming here for Restaurant Week Summer 08 or a special occasion.

Great place to kick back and get a fantastic steak. This place has a beautiful decor in their lounge environment. The menu is out of this world and everything that I have had is delicious. Prices are reasonable and the service is great.

I took my wife there for our anniversary and was a little nervous that maybe we were under dressed and the somewhat loud music around the bar may not have been the best pick. All of that changed once we were seated in the back area. The food was excellent the sevrice was great. (Another reviewer recommended that I ask for the quieter section and I was glad I did). Though, for anyone going I'd recommend a dress for the ladies and a sports coats for the guys. Not being from NY, I didn't really think about the sports coat.

Outstanding.
Definitely a winner owners proved downtown can work for UES. Steaks were choice hand picked; better then some I tried at Wolfgang and Peter Lugar.
Finally I can go to see some art and have a good meet with happy people working there. Wine list was reasonable and reseved list had some allocated wines.
I leared
Ask for manager if you have a big party very accomodating.

great addition to the neighborhood. it replaced an old tired spot. bar/lounge area was packed with young professionals. finally a bar in the neighborhood that doesn't focus on the college or sports crowd. you can have great drinks and actually have a conversation.

Went for my birthday dinner and was more than pleasantly surprised. The raw oysters were delicious and the t-bone steak was amazing. I've tried many NY steak houses with Ruth's Chris being my favorite so far and this was a close second. Was a bit nervous about trying a reinvented retaurant with new cuisine but I'm glad I gave it a shot because it was wonderful! Highly recommended.

After a trip to the Whitney (fairly close to Lenox Room) for a Picasso exhibition, we (my museum/dinner/party buddy and I) arrived on time for our reservation, but were asked to wait a while at the bar 'til a table freed up (probably about 15 minutes)...while we waited, we both enjoyed a glass of white wine (a pinot grigio for me and something that wasn't a pinot grigio for her (sorry, I don't know my wines).

For the appetizer, she went with the Foie Gras Chicken Liver Parfait (I don't think she'll be having foie gras again anytime soon)...I went with the Crispy Shrimp Spring Roll (crisp and flavorful).

For the entree, she went with the Wild Mushroom Risotto, which she seemed fairly content with...I went with the Roasted Gianonne Chicken (with a side of mashed potatoes), which tasted like a Rotisserie chicken that you can get at supermarkets, which is not say it's bad, but nothing special. Also ordered champagne (Veuve Cliquot), which they had to chill before serving it. It was a struggle for either of us to finish this bottle of Veuve, but the alcoholic in me helped me through it.

For dessert, we both ordered the Warm Chocolate Cake. Presented with chocolate sauce zig-zagging the plate, this looked like the highlight of the dinner...portion of chocolate cake was generous and also included a scoop of pistachio ice cream with a thin cookie sitting on top of it. I don't know what did me in since I was practically on an empty stomach coming into the restaurant, but I could not handle any more food and didn't have any bit of the dessert, so it just sat there in front of me melting away (she managed to find room for the awesome dessert and for that, I applaud her).

Staff was very attentive and made the experience here that much more enjoyable, and I would come back again just so I can try that dessert even if it means maybe finishing half an entree.

Very nice neighborhood spot. Great for a date. Very pretty decor with candles everywhere and red walls. Food is nothing special, the menu is average at best. Fried calamari and pizza, and a pasta dish w/ duck ragout. Salad w/ beets and blue cheese, nothing special. Service was nice, and not expensive. A good place to have a drink and watch a baseball playoff game at the bar (tonight! Go METS!). Not worth seeking out, but if you live on the upper East side, a place worth checking out.

My girlfriend and I stopped in on a Friday night. The place was crowded, but there was one corner table that we quickly took. I had been in here before for a drink at the smallish front bar and liked the look of the place - a low light, plush, cool comfy-cozy but oddly elegant feel. We treated ourselves to the fried oysters, nicely done with a perfect coating and served over a small bed of wasabi infused seaweed salad in the shell, followed by a very tasty and large fresh beet salad. For an entree we shared the crispy skin Atlantic salmon (yes, I know everyone's crazy about "wild" salmon..). They split the portion in the kitchen - actually I think they were two separate filets - which is always appreciated and the fish was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We also shared a side of brocolli rabe, which was also very good (it's amazing how bad brocolli rabe can be at some places..overcooked & bitter..). Trendy, fun music pumped through the speakers throughout dinner and the place filled up even more as we were leaving. Service was casual but good. With two drinks the tab was $68.

When invited to dine at the Lenox room by colleagues I was expecting a much more pleasant dining experience than I had received. Although the decadence of the place is very chic and the food and drinks are adequately priced I would not recommend it to anyone. The service was autrocious in fact my order came out wrong and our wine was never repoured throughout the entire dinner, which lasted 3 hours. I felt as if the servers could be a little more personable instead of so conscious of the way they stand....its as if they are in the military!

We celebrated a friend's birthday at Lenox Room, and we all had a good time. The food was good, the decor nice, and we had the nicest waiter! He was extra attentive, very friendly and super polite. He made our night there a very enjoyable one. I'd definitely go back again.

The previous 2 reviews giving this restaurant a 10 rating gave me high expectations for Lenox Room, so I was fairly disappointed with my experience. The decor, while trendy and attractive, is generic and reminscent of many others such as Icon and Compass. The food was good, but nothing special - the duck was good but its sauce was a little salty, the sole was fairly mediocre, and the chicken was a little better than a cheap meal at a diner. Appetizers and desserts were so-so.. all in all if someone were to invite me there again i might consider saying yes despite the horrible slow service, but otherwise I won't be back in a hurry.

A perfect experience from the moment of reservation to the blissful dessert selection. This is what a New York restaurant should be. Staff is incredibly attentive and accomodating, and the fare is even better. Excellence at its very best!
