Help Choosing A Steakhouse


I am planning a small party (about 10 people) for my father's 70th birthday in a couple of months. His only request is that we go to a restaurant where he will be able to hear everyone, so either a quiet restaurant or one with a private or semi-private area for the table. I have been thinking about having the dinner at a steakhouse because they serve his favorite foods, but I don't have a ton of experience eating at them. I know Sparks and Uncle Jack's have private rooms, but I haven't tried either of those. Can anyone recommend one over the other or any other restaurant in Manhattan that would fit the bill?

Thanks so much for your help!

  1. I think the Old Homestead has a private room.

    1. I was recently at Uncle Jack's and I was very underwhelmed by their food. Very disappointing.

      1. Gallaghers has private rooms.

        1. I don't know if they have a small private space that would work for you ,but I took my mom to BLT prime for her 65th borthday a couple of weeks ago and the food and service was amazing. Steak was better then Peter Lugar.

          1. I'd recommend BLT Prime, I don't know if they have a private room, but they have an upstairs seating area that is a little bit smaller and away from the downstairs crowd. The steaks are very good and they also have other menu items that are also very good.
