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.

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

A must when in New York, me and my husband dined here for his birthday with our two young sons, there is no kids menu but the restaurant happily split an adult meal in two for them both. The steaks we all had were exceptionally cooked and tasted amazing along with the side dishes and not forgetting the wine, the atmosphere was lovely and the staff were amazing and couldn’t do enough for us. Would highly recommend this place.

The atmosphere at K Rico is so comforting compared to your average steakhouse. Everyone we dealt with seemed to really care that we were there and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. As for the food, the appetizers we had, the mussels and the octopus, were as good as any we have ever tried. As for the steak, the porterhouse was cooked to perfection and the grated horseradish was a nice added touch. All in all, a fantastic dinner experience.

We enjoyed a perfectly prepared tomahawk steak with sides recommended by the bartender. He also recommended the tres leches and coffee flan for dessert. Both were outstanding. The presentation was passionate and genuine and every server was polite and professional. This place is quickly becoming our neighborhood favorite.

It was a special occasion only in that it was the last night of our holiday in New York.
I chose K Rico based on the reviews I’d read and it didn’t disappoint.
We were treated graciously when we arrived and given a choice of table.
The real surprise was when a table was wheeled out with each of the steaks on the menu on display to help us choose. Good job they did or we’d have ordered a steak each which would have been too much!
The steak was cooked to perfection and the tastiest we’ve both ever eaten. It was a sirloin, absolute perfection.
The sides were delicious too.
Highly recommend K Rico

My family and I went here before going to a musical. We were really impressed with the explanation of the different cuts of steaks that are on the menu. I had the ribeye and my wife had the fillet, both cuts were cooked perfectly and very tasty. One of my kids had the double cut pork chop and raved about how juicy it was. The owner, Chris stopped by our table to check on us to make sure everything was good and if we needed anything. Everything was perfect, the service was excellent as well. We will definitely go back.

Ci siamo stati a capodanno, lo consigliamo a chi vuole mangiare della buona carne (punto forte nonostante la festività concedono il menù alla carta senza menù pre impostati)
Prezzi ragionevoli per New York e per il servizio offerto. Se ci sarà l'occasione ci torneremo sicuramente

Food is tasty. Steaks are good. Service was pleasant. Difficult to understand our waiter. The restaurant needs better ventilation. Lots of smoke from kitchen. Hostesses were friendly. Priced like an upscale NYC steakhouse but it isn’t. Drinks were weak. Sides too pricey. $11 for a cup of fries is ridiculous. $11 for sweet plantain also ridiculous. Two empanadas for apps very pricey. Small serving of sausage very expensive. Not good value. If you’re going to spend what they charge, go to Mastros or one of the better NYC steakhouses. This place was mainly tourists.

While visiting NYC over Christmas, we originally had reservations at another well known steak house, but cancelled to give K Rico a try. We were not disappointed!! The food, service, ambiance and wine were fabulous. K Rico will be our "must go to" on return visits.
