So I was very much looking forward to having my first meal at Wolfgang's. I'm a fairly seasoned steak person and have been to most of the best in NY and I heard from many that Wolfgang's was the best of the Luger's spinoffs.

We did dine at the Tribeca location, I heard now that might have made the difference. Honestly, I was shocked how terrible the meal was, it might have been the worst high end steak experience I have had in NY.

Starters - were solid steakhouse fare, nothing too creative. The bacon was very solid, the highlight of the night, not Lugers, but very good.

Steak - of course, we had the Porterhouse. I'm not sure if they were trying to imitate Ruth Chris, but the platter was too hot and took our medium rare to medium by the time it was served. Decent crust, but no seasoning at all, many of us reached for the steak sauce which is absurd. Big question is why is there any steak sauce at all for the table? Steak was certainly not aged well, very tough in certain areas and just lacked flavor.

Sides - again solid typical fare, creamed spinach was the star, definitely one of the better ones I have had. Onion Rings, Fries, Broccoli, all nothing special.

Did we go on an off night or is this typical?
