Steakhouse
K Rico in New York City is owned by brothers John P. Greco III, Tommy Greco and their friend Christian Tanno. John is the executive chef of West Village’s Philip Marie; Tommy steers The Ritz Bar Lounge.

John & Tommy prepped for the opening of this unique steakhouse with a South American flair. The brothers trekked through Chile, Argentina, Peru researching local fare, the wealth of which has been applied to K Rico’s menu.

Serving USDA Prime Meat in a contemporary ambiance, K Rico also vaunts an outdoor patio with al fresco dining. A full service bar extends through the venue. A semi-private dining area affords intimacy. Seafood is also at hand. Folks rave over the Salmon with Saffron Sauce and much as they extol the Tomahawk Steak. Memorable service has rendered it a top-rated Steakhouse, well-illustrated in the reviews it continues to garner.

Located in Hell’s Kitchen, it is minutes from Times Square/Broadway Theaters. And that the kitchen stays open till 12am is a plus.

The steak was so tender could have cut it with a butter knife. The mussels were in an amazing broth that I just wanted to drink. Baked Oysters were wonderful and our waiter Adam was great. Very welcoming and friendly place .. we will be back thank you for a wonderful night.

This was a return visit--several times over--this time for a birthday celebration. The food was absolutely delicious, the wine selections were very good, and the service was superb. We especially enjoyed the "special" NY Strip Steak--soaked in bourbon and served with a shot of it. The staff was nice enough to treat us with a piece of tres leches cake for the birthday celebration.

Loved everything about our experience. Service was friendly and informal, but excellent. Loved the South American vibe with quiet salsa / jazz playing unobtrusively in the background. Tried a Pisco Sour, which was great and after perusing the impressive array of gigantic cuts of meat on offer, we both plumped for aged 22oz rib eye steaks, accompanied by the fresa salad. The steaks came out cooked to medium rare perfection. Crispy and blackened on the outside, juicy and red on the inside and beautifully seasoned with rosemary and sea salt. Mouth watering! The meat and the fat in particular were the softest I’ve ever had. The knife almost fell through the meat. Absolutely first class. Also have to recommend the fresa salad which was beautiful and complemented the mea perfectly. All in all a truly memorable evening.

K Rico steakhouse is a unique South American steakhouse in midtown Manhattan. The steakhouse has some yummy cuts such as their New York Strip or their Filet Mignon. When you get served a server will come holding your food and putter tray on a food stand where they take it and put it on your plate, once they serve a man comes holding a piece of Yucca and a Grater. The man asks you if you would like some grated Yucca. If you say yes the man grates it in front of you and then shakes it on your steak, the Yucca tastes a bit like wasabi and gives a nice zing to your food. The place also has super comfy chairs at most tables. The place also friendly servers, the servers also hang your coat up for you on a coat rack. The steakhouse also tries to make it easy for you when you are getting your coat by giving you a slip with a number on it so when you need your coat you give the slip to the server and and they get your coat. Also just to be clear that a Medium and a Medium Rare more on the rare side both means RARE. So basically you can only order rare. The steak has a bit more fat than most steakhouses and the food seems to not have been removed of its fat before being cooked. I really like like those things so this place for me was 10/10

Came here to try out their new brunch, it was amazing! I personally had the steak and eggs, cooked perfectly. The real show stopper was the music, classic r&b, Motown, and disco! It’s was so much fun we actually got up and danced. We will be back!!!

I went to K Rico for my birthday with my mother and had a wonderful experience. I had the skirt steak and my mother ordered the petite filet; both were absolutely delicious. The wait staff and maître'd were very friendly and informative re: the different cuts of meat. It was a fantastic night and I look forward to returning. I've already recommended K Rico to many family and friends. It's a gem in NYC that's too good to be kept just my secret. :)

K Rico is an outstanding steakhouse. Not very big, but comfortable. The owner and his service staff are as friendly as they come. This was our second visit there so we knew which table and which waiter to request and they came through. Other restaurants seem to not look at comments when reservations are made. K Rico is on top of everything. We'll definitely return on our next visit to the City.

K Rico never disappoints! The food and service are always top-notch. The octopus and oysters are among the best I have ever had and the steaks are always cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. If you are not a meat-eater, the fish selections are also amazing. One of a few places in NYC that we return to over and over again, and recommend without hesitation!

The Tomahawk special was a great choice for the two hungry people in our party of three and the NY Strip was enjoyed by the third. The steaks were cooked to perfection and they tasted wonderful as well. Will be back again in the future.

I feel safe to say, this was the best steak I have ever eaten in Manhattan! Add to this the friendly service, from the very moment we walked in, until we were seated, and you have a place I will MOST CERTAINLY come back on my next trip (or every trip) to Manhattan. Everyone at the restaurant contributed positively for a delicious and memorable dinner

Service was A+ very attentive and nice staff. From the moment we entered the restaurant up until we left is was always great service. The host and manager were amazing and all the waiters were top notch. My only issue was the food. Which is huge. The steaks did not have much flavor. They were in much need of salt n pepper. The jalea we ordered as an appetizer was oil and soggy. The prices were way too high for the quality of food served. I ordered a parrillada mixta and upon arrival it was very room temperature almost cold. My wife ordered the K Rico steak which also had little flavor and I’m not a fan of the sizzling pan it’s served on.

Nous avons pris le filet mignon et le contrefilet. Les portions sont énormes donc malheureusement beaucoup de gaspillage. Selon moi la viande manquait d’assaisonnement, j’ai demandé du sel et du poivre pour relever le tout. Le prix selon open table est de 30$ mais les steak sont plutôt à 50$ et il faut ajouter 10$ pour un accompagnement de légumes. Sommes toutes pas le meilleur steak de ma vie mais le service a été impeccable. Il n’y avait malheureusement pas beaucoup de monde pour un samedi soir (janvier), donc il n’y avait pas vraiment d’ambiance. Je n’y retournerai pas.

Good food but when back home, I discovered that the waiter let me a big drop of wine on my white shirt on my back without telling me this
Very poor service
no customer respect despite good food
I have the photo for any proof point if desired
