Smith & Wollensky

Who We Are

History of the classic steakhouse.

A prime spotting place for local celebrities, political figures and even a few movie stars, Smith & Wollensky has long been considered a premier dining destination. Offering simple elegant food, attention to detail in service, a refined setting, the experience is uniquely American—and says unequivocally “YOU’VE ARRIVED™.”

Our signature green and white building was established in 1977 in New York. Today, with nine boutique and distinctively different locations, it continues to symbolize the timeless luxury of Prime USDA steaks, premium seafood, signature cocktails and award-winning wines. We’re still the only national steakhouse to dry-age and butcher on site, fly in fresh lobster daily and make our sides and pastries by hand. Our staff put your comfort and pleasure as their absolute priority. So whether you visit for an intimate gathering or large celebration, you’ll be glad when you’ve arrived.
