    We're staying at the Sky Lofts this trip and want to try Craftsteak. For those who have eaten at Craftsteak - does the ambiance tend to be on the louder side (like Stripsteak) with echoes and lots of extraneous noise, or is it generally a more subdued ambiance (like Prime and Charlie Palmer)?

    Thanks!

    The times I have been there is has been busy but not what I would call loud. I had no trouble carrying on conversations and have no recollection of being distracted by people talking at other tables.

    They also have, IMHO, the best dinner rolls ever :thumbsup:

    somewhere in between. they have really fresh veggies. try their creamed mashed potatoes. the steaks are good, as is their short rib (different though). I rate the place a B+ just like strip steak; but neither are JG or Prime.

    it's definitely more vibrant and hopping than the very subdued and romantic Prime. never been to Stripsteak, so no idea about that. but it's not overly loud either. also, you can have the butler bring food from Craftsteak or any of the other restaurants up to your loft if you don't want to go out.

    Its not noisy but has more of a hip/lounge type vibe then Prime's more classic/formal setting. There are semi-private half circle booths along one side in recessed nooks for a more intimate setting. Have a cocktail beforehand in the bar/lounge area, nice drinks and great bartenders. I think you'll enjoy it.

    Thanks everyone for your prompt and detailed replies. :nworthy:

    No promises of a full trip report, but I'll at least try to post a few pics and a summary when we return.

    This. The semi private booths for 5 or 6 people are great. Eating as a couple, I felt like we were sitting with the couple seated next to us and I didn't care for it.

    I agree they do pack in the 2 tops. Those booths are great.

    We had a booth when we ate there and it was pretty private and the service was phenomenal. However, on my trip to the ladie's room, the dining room itself could be described as "lively". Maybe ask for a booth? We didn't ask, but it was an anniversary dinner and they may have obliged with a better table.

    Some of the 'bench' tables can be really close together.
    Which can be really good (or bad) depending who they sit next to you...and if you wanted any privacy.
