Howling at Wolfgang Steakhouse

meinNYC | Aug 22, 2008 12:29 PM

Had dinner reservations at Wolfgang on Park and 33rd for 8 PM. Entered a deafening low
ceiling room (with tiles on the ceiling) to find a very crowded bar and people scrunched together waiting for tables. Waited for 20 minutes to be seated. Conversation out of the question as noise level so high. If I didn't have a gift certificate that was almost expiring we would have left. Service was swift. The Wolfgang salad was fresh with lots of fat fresh shrimp. Husband went for a steak and I just asked for the crabmeat appetizer. Hubby thought steak was so-so. Crabmeat was very fresh. Ordered a side of "cottage fries" and they were great big crunchy discs of well fried potato. Didn't stay for dessert as by then our ears were ringing. What architect designed a restaurant with such awful acoustics? People all over were screaming to be heard. My husband played charades all through dinner.
