Sparks Steak House was opened in 1966 by Michael and Pasquale Cetta, hence the logo 'Cetta Brothers Steak Masters'. The restaurant is still a family owned and operated business and is located in midtown Manhattan, a five minute walk from Grand Central Station and The United Nations. Join us to celebrate 50 years of business!



The restaurant is well known for excellent steaks, seafood, fresh vegetables and satisfying salads.
And of course, the huge wine list.

Having been to many steakhouses in this city, I was disappointed on the quality of the meat. Other than that, all else was great. I did like the space so that you weren't on top of someone else and in earshot of hearing their conversation.

It should not be at these prices that I have to keep hunting waiter/bus boy down for water, bread and two of us ask for rare and we get well done ask for a Stella and get gin and tonic

It was amazing but we ordered way too much food. It could have fed our family of 6 rather than just two. I would recommend one steak for two people is more than ample.

Everything was great, the staff was welcoming, the only thing I’d tweak was that the steak was really really salty , but the flavor of the steak itself was soo delicious . The portion of the steak was also so generous.

When you pay this much for a meal, you expect to get the steak at the right temperature. I asked for medium rare and got medium well. I will not return.
