First time there. Amazing ambience. So romantic but we also saw a father and son who just came for the steak. Frank Sinatra music. Great wine. We had the garlic bread, house salad, steak, creamed spinach and asparagus. Everything was delicious. Excellent service. The best creamed spinach ever.

Local Guide Mary Lucius left a 4-star Google review, he said the food was perfect, but gave honest feedback about the service,
Right off the bat they ask for 8.00 valet parking upfront. This was a 1st time to ask before service was over. The valet staff although was very nice. Seated by a very nice employee. The table was set very nicely. My courses include Canadian cold water lobster, shrimp cocktail, 7 Oz filet,baked potato, coconut pie.Food presentation was excellent.Food was cooked to perfection. 4 stars given for service. Jarrod? waiter was inattentive. Had to wait 15 minutes for tea,had to ask for salt and pepper. The busboy really deserved the tip.He was outstanding and very helpful.

4. TS Steakhouse at Turning Stone Resort Casino - 4.6 Stars

TS Steakhouse is so expensive they don't list their prices on the menu, lol. But just know that it will be on the higher end of the average person's budget. They offer an 8-ounce Filet Mignon, 20-ounce Bone-In Rib-eye, 26-ounce T-Bone, 16-ounce Prime Rib (As Available) and a 16-ounce NY Strip.

Impeccable service. Wonderful atmosphere. Great food. Our waiter was an older gent named John. He's one of the best I've had at any 5-star restaurant. Highly recommend this place for a fine meal.

5. Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca - 4.3 Stars
110 Waverly Pl, New York, NY 10011
The Grilled Porterhouse for Two is $160 at Babbo and is accompanied by Fingerling Potatoes and Tuscan "Intingolo."
Google Local Guide Gillian Fraser, who left a 4-star review of Babbo, raved about the food, but said the service could be improved with a smile,
Babbo is always one of the first restaurants we book when we know we're travelling to NYC.
The food is delicious, so flavourful and the portions are very reasonable. I love the ambiance of the space. We have dined both upstairs and on the main level, I definitely prefer the upstairs seating, it's much more intimate.
Unfortunately during our most recent dining experience, the service wasn't as great as it usually is. Our server was very snooty, not friendly or personable at all. I don't think he smiled once.
The wine list is extensive beyond believe, thank god for their sommelier, he was fantastic and very helpful. He can certainly provide good guidance throughout the list.
- Warm Tripe "alla Parmigiana"
- Prime Beef Strip Loin Warm Carpaccio
- Buffalo Mozzarella
- Black Sea Bass
- Grilled Porterhouse for Two
- Olive Oil Cake and Gelato
- Black & White Coppetta

6. Ruth's Chris Steak House - 4.5 Stars
670 White Plains Rd, Tarrytown, NY 10591
While Ruth's Chris is another steakhouse that doesn't list its prices on its online menu, the 40-ounce Tomahawk for Two is around $155, according to its Facebook page.
Not only is this special type of steak a marvel to look at, it is absolutely delicious. A sophisticated, upscale variety - a properly cooked and presented tomahawk is truly a sight to behold, and will have your mouth watering while delighting your taste buds.
Local Guide Luis Rivera left a 4-star Google review,
First time and definitely not the last. Service was excellent our waiter Frank was great. Made it special for my wife as we were having dinner for her birthday. The steak was cooked to perfection. The sides were amazing. The creamed spinach, sweet potato casserole and mash potatoes were great.
Fellow Local Guide Mari Arr suggested in her 5-star review that the front desk could be more welcoming, but overall it was a great experience,
Front desk could be a little bit more polite it's older gentleman seems a little bit overwhelmed not so welcoming. But once you're inside the manager very friendly walking you to the table I'll server can't remember her name was wonderful The portions are definitely to share. The food was delicious there was not one dish that was not delicious. There was eight of us who shared multiple appetizers to crab cakes or to die for mushrooms cooked to perfection. The steaks were a little bit on the bland side but soft tender and all the other dishes were perfect. Definitely pricey but worth it for special occasions. Definitely recommend.
7. Tournedos Steakhouse - 4.6 Stars
26 Broadway, Rochester, NY 14607
It offers an A5 Japanese Wagyu Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture - 100% Tajima Cattle 4 ounce Beef Tenderloin with Ponzu Sauce and paired with a Nigori Sake for $136. For about half of that, you could get Wagyu Strip Steak (Regular Cut) for $72.
Linda Clark, who celebrated her birthday at Tournedos, left a 5-star Google review about her experience,
It had been quite a while since I'd been there. No disappointments with any of our steaks. I had a New York strip, my husband got the "petite" bone-in rib eye and my birthday boy got the porterhouse. We shared sides - asparagus cooked just right - not hard and chewy but full if flavor and not overcooked; buttery mashed potatoes and mushrooms. Too much fine dining to even look at the very well appointed dessert tray!

8. Buffalo Chophouse - 4.5 Stars
282 Franklin St Buffalo, NY 14202
Buffalo Chophouse offers a reasonably priced 32-ounce Bone-In Ribeye for just $74. Compared to $350 for a Wagyu steak, $74 is a bargain.
Google Local Guide Sarah Lee highly recommends it in her 5-star Google review,
Amazing place for a special dinner. My husband highly recommends the lamb chops and I can vouch for the superbly dry-aged fillet. Excellent service by staff, especially our awesome waitress who provided recommendations helpfully. Drinks (both wine and cocktails) were beautifully balanced (try The Gentleman Fig!!!). Love the atmosphere and location. Yes, it is expensive, but it is fine dining. Worth every penny!!!

Google Local Guide Boaz Sed left a 5-star review about his first experience at Doma Land + Sea,
It was my first time. Beautiful restaurant I went for a birthday party. Was a great time. The food is delicious and a lot of great variety...It's on the more pricey side. Recommend going for dates and professional dinners. I like the sushi 🍣 came out very quick and the steaks were awesome. The desert was also delicious I wish they had the cotton candy to try it out. A must try and a new favorite.
