CLUB A Steakhouse and the other perennial TA "bests"

erica | Sep 14, 201805:09 PM     3

What is the story with these places? How do they manage to appear on the TripAdvisor Top Ten month after month? Yes, I know something is fishy but when you look at the Club A reviews, many are from people with tons of TA posts. The owners are from a long-standing restaurant family in NY. But #1 in NYC, for steak (this week it's dropped a few notches). Do they buy you a drink if you write a review and post it on the spot? Or give out coupons of you give them a good write-up? I don't have a restaurant and am not scheming for anything..just curious as to how places that I've never heard of except on TA, manage to move up so high on these silly lists..

Has anyone been there? Maybe the joke is on me and it really is a great steakhouse but somehow I think there's something else in play.
