Steakhouse
Maloney & Porcelli is a clubby new American restaurant that draws inspiration from a simpler time when three martini lunches were alive and well, steak was for dinner, and servers anticipated guests’ every need, even completing dishes tableside. Begin meals at Maloney & Porcelli with a selection of shellfish, salads or favorites such as Scallops, Peekytoe Crabcake, or Steak Carpaccio that is finished tableside. For the main course, there is a choice of steaks and shanks, including the famed Crackling Pork Shank with Firecracker Applesauce, lobsters and composed options such as Chicken Under a Brick, Pan-Seared Atlantic Salmon, or Sunday Lasagna. An array of inventive sides complete the meal, like Gruyere Soufflé, Fried Herb Tater Tots, Hash Browns. The desserts inspire nostalgia with an individual red velvet cake served, Sunday Jubilee, and a selection of house-made sorbets, sherbets and ice creams.

Please note: I’ve worked in the food service industry and I have a number of friends who own and operate restaurants. I live in Midtown East and love food. My dad took me to Maloney and Porcelli as a kid and taught me how to order a steak here. It pains me to say this but my experience here as an adult was awful. I went on Valentines Day with my fiancé. We came to try their coveted wine dinner special. I think what’s special about steak houses in New York City is that they’re one of the few places where service is a historical staple. Not the case here. Everything was rushed; meaning from the moment the waiter greeted the table he was gone. I didn’t even get a chance to ask him a question. And when he left, he was gone. We didn’t see him for about 20-30minutes. The food was sub-par. I felt like I could a better steak myself. The crackling pork was decent but far from anything to write home about. We had finished our meal before someone checked in on us. I had my coat on and was standing next to our table for another 25 minutes before I finally asked someone if we could have our check. It was an extremely disappointing experience. I guess I’m more of a Keene’s, Smith & Wollensky’s, or Wolfgang’s type of girl. Either way, I definitely won’t be going back. Do yourself a favor and skip this place.

The food was flavorful but, they overcooked my filet. Also, the dessert was not as described & really sweet.

This Steakhouse brings it! The location and vibe makes it a destination spot and all business types are present. Not just a corporate place at all. An expensive meal but service and quality is why it is a value.

I was disappointed. They did not give restaurant week menu. You had to ask. Asked for grated cheese was told it’s already on pasta. $16 for French fries? Really!

Basically, overpriced and not worth it.

Food: for appetizers we had the bacon and the scallops. The bacon was very good. The scallops were overcooked and rubbery. Entrees we had the filet minion and the lobster ravioli. The steak was decent. The lobster ravioli was clearly store bought. At that price, you'd expect fresh pasta. Dessert was okay.

Before we got to order there must have been a shift change because we had to wait at least twenty minutes before we got to order food and the waiter who took our food order was not the same person who took our drink order.

We had two waiter so. One was good the other was not. We were never given a wine list when we asked, then when the bill came $80 worth of drinks were added when we didn't have any. Mistakes do happen. But when we told the waiter who brought our bill of the mistake he didn't take the bill. He said oh and walked away. The other waiter came over and asked if the bill was ready. We explained to him that there was a mistake on the bill and he apologized and took it off. He said the bartender transfered drinks to our bill. It kind of felt like they added it to see if we would catch it. We're native New Yorkers. Not tourist. Food came out really quick as if they had to keep table time under 1 hour when the restaurant had a lot of empty tables. It was an annoying experience. Would not go back no matter how good the food was.

Went there for lunch during restaurant week. Was given regular menu aad to ask our waiter for restaurant week menu. Steak was superb. Waiter should have told us it did not come with any sides. my medium rare filet was perfect, but one of my guests who ordered medium received a very rare steak. Overall value was very good but service could have been improved.

Could have been off from choosing the restaurant week menu but the food was surprisingly not up to par for the price considering sides were a la carte. Steak was not cooked according to order temp and not good quality cut. Lobster ravioli were good but the ravioli were not al dente.

I went for Restaurant Week, so the value was great! It's awesome when high-end restaurants participate in Restaurant Week because it gives people the chance to try a new restaurant that they normally would not go to, or is normally out of budget.

The appetizers and entrees were phenomenal. I had the best lobster ravioli in a truffle beurre blanc sauce and my friend had a perfectly cooked filet. Portions were big, too - 10oz filet whereas most steakhouses do an 8oz during restaurant week.

The only thing that I did not love was dessert - I had the icebox chocolate cake, so by default I expected it to be cold. It was not - it was lukewarm, dry and tasted a bit burnt. My friend's ice cream looked great though!

Would definitely go back for a celebratory meal. Staff was very nice and gave good recommendations, but restaurant in general is definitely on the expensive side. It also has an heir of old men, old money. (When I arrived, I was one of four women at the bar surrounded by businessmen!) Not too noisy, but not a quiet, romantic location.

Ive been goin to this resturant for years and have always been a fan of their wine dinner. This saturday when we went we found out that not only did the price go up but the menu was changed and some of our favorites have been removed. When we sat the waiter gave us regualr menus and when we said we wanted to do the wine dinner he switched them out for the wine dinner menus. So its a $90 deal and you get qn app, entree and dessert with unlimited wine, which our waiter so rudely stated would only be poured for 2 hours! Umm we were all in our 40s we arent children and are spending good money(bill came to over 500 for 4 people not including tip) so to tell us that was annoying! The food isnt the same as it once was.. my steak was burnt and my husbands sauce on his steak was very spicy. The desserts are differnt as well and we did not enjoy them either.. its sad but it was good while it lasted! After about 10 years of enjoying this restaurant we will no longer be returning.

Don’t go for Restaurant Week. Portions are smaller. Server treated us poorly and seemed upset we wanted the discounted menu. Not sure why they offer the deal if they don’t want you to order it.

We have been to many of the NYC Steakhouses. This is one to avoid. If it wasn't for Restaurant Week, prices are higher than great steakhouses. Service was very inattentive and it was not crowded. Food was average. You can find many other steakhouses that have this one beat in all categories.

Our party of four visited Maloney and Porcelli during Restaurant Week. We enjoyed an outstanding meal. Arriving early, two of us were immediately taken to our table. Bread sticks were delivered to our table and we ordered our drinks, including a nice draft beer. When the rest of our group arrived, we ordered our meals from the Restaurant Week menu. All of the food was tasty and the portions were generous. For appetizers we selected the bacon, burrata cheese with squash and apricot jam and cacio è pepe pasta. The burrata cheese was especially delicious. For our mains we had the filet mignon and grilled salmon. An order or creamed spinach was was shared. Saving room for dessert, each of us took home half of our salmon or filet. For dessert we had banana ice cream, sorbet and chocolate cake. We chatted for awhile and never felt rushed.
