How often do you get to eat great food with great service in a old bank vault!

Food was ok. Pricy, I felt, but not bad and not amazing. Atmosphere was nice. Service was very slow. Waiter didn’t come back to our table hardly ever unless we promoted acknowledgment.

Cool spot! Dinner inside a bank vault. Definitely a hidden gem. A must is the bacon appetizer which was outstandingly delicious. I’m a snob about my crab cakes and these were done right. Had a burger with again bacon and I was not mad. Was stuffed and took half of it home. Seconds were sooo good! Give it a try you will be pleasantly surprised.

The food is awesome. 2nd time there. Great steakhouse but the best part of this meal was the Lobster Bisque this time. My bisque had a chunk of lobster in every spoonful. AMAZING!

The waiter, when we asked whether the price for wine was per bottle or glass, and then asked to get a bottle of Malbec, he answered that it was a ‘cheap wine, that’s a comfortable price level’. He sassed the waiter that tried to refill our glasses with water as ‘Mr eager’ and ‘Mr eager over here will help you’. It was my dads 70th birthday and I sincerely regret taking him there.

Excellent food and service. I had mentioned through OpenTable that we would be celebrating my husband's birthday and requested to sit inside the vault. When we arrived they were aware of my request and gave us excellent seating and the waiter told me that he was also aware of the birthday celebration. We had a fantastic night and fantastic meal.

Had a great time at Butcher and Banker. Steak was terrific! Service was extremely attentive. Salads were delicious but will really feed 2 people. Meal was a little pricey, but price goes with quality.

The porterhouse steak for two was plenty for us both including our 11 year old son. The wine pairing was excellent and the cheese cake was succulent. The entire diner was an experience in itself.

Great food and excellent service! The ambiance was quiet and classy but it doesn't make you afraid to make some noise and have a good time! I would definitely come again! The general manager, George, was friendly and super accommodating!! He helped make the experience even more enjoyable.

My boyfriend and I went here before a game at MSG. We weren't seated inside the vault but thats okay, the ambiance was still really cool. The food however was not. My boyfriend ordered a braised short rib which was terribly dry and was incredibly difficult to get off the bone. For the price of the meal, we were highly disappointed.

Disgusting atmosphere filled with tourists and a wait staff that is innatentive and forgot numerous parts of our order in addition to overcooking our steak.

Hostess outside let the bar area become filled with coats on the floor and a general sloppy atmosphere. Would not recommend this place to anyone who is not staying at the Hotel, and even if staying there...go some place else.

The food was excellent! The steaks were a great cut and cooked perfectly. All of the sides were delicious as was the shrimp cocktail. We sat in the vault which was a cool experience next time we’ll sit in the dining room to try that out. We would recommend trying it out.

Amazing steak, in fact best ever had and I have been to some good places prior! Recommend the 'cowboy ribeye', my wife had the fillet, both of which were superb and I can almost still taste the yummy-ness of it!! The setting in the bank vault is very cool and adds to the experience.

The M’aitre D was extremely rude when my parents arrived to check in for their wedding anniversary dinner. When I called to confirm the reservation I asked the receptionist to note this was a special occasion. My parents had to refire the steaks twice due to taking the order wrong. Despite the server mentioning management would stop by the table, the manager never stopped by and did not address the poor service issue.

You need to walk thru an ultra busy hotel lobby with barely any signage to find this place. Than when you do, you are greeted by someone texting who is not thrilled to be interrupted and will not ask if you need to check your coat. Your waiter will oddly. Part of this restaurants appeal/ charm is that it's located in the old vault of a bank. So it's very disappointing and strange to not be seated in the actual vault space when barely anyone is in there. While the food ranged from ok to good to inedible there is no reason to ever go here. Every place can have an off night but when someone tells you a piece of fish is inedible it should not remain on the bill. Period full stop. If you get sucked in and really want to check out the space, go have a drink at the bar. It's very cool. Maybe some sliders and a duck fat potato cake.. they were great.... but for dinner move on. This is NYC.. plenty of other places more worthy and appreciative of your time/money.
