M. Wells Steakhouse
Chophouse in funky former auto body shop
Steakhouse · Long Island City · $$$
The Zagat Review
Located in an LIC “converted auto-body shop” , this Québécois-accented take on the classic steakhouse from Hugue Dufour and Sarah Obraitis presents “terrific” chops from a “wood-burning grill” in the open kitchen (where there's also a live trout tank); a patio with its own bar and a pétanque court only adds to the “unique” – and “pricey” – experience; P.S. it’s only open Thursday–Saturday.

Absolutely phenomenal. The waitress, and all staff for that matter, were the perfect balance of attentive and space-giving (is that a phrase? It should be). The food was amazing. Best enjoyed as a family meal, sharing encouraged, whatever you choose you won't be disappointed. I'm rarely drawn to immediately rate a restaurant after one meal but this is a place I'll be back to; I certainly can't wait for the next visit. Bravo.

Pretty good steakhouse, selection is a little limited as far as the types of cuts go, but it is a small place. I've had pretty much everything on thier menu, nothing disappoints. There raw bar is excellent. Reservations are required but they have snuck me in during off peak times.... Or just sit at the bar and enjoy a dollar cocktail with your oysters, then order up a steak.

Had a good time and ate well! Staff was friendly and helpful. Steak was cooked to perfection on the wood flame, but was not that hot - we still enjoyed it very much! BTW, music was definitely on the weird side the night we were there... And they don't kid about the cheese on the Cesar salad!
