I like Red House for happy hour. During the week, when you arrive at 5 and no one else is there, they are on their game. Any other time, they are terrible. Service: sucks. Our waiter actually never came over. They had to bring someone else over. She was snotty and rude. She brought over a dirty water glass and we nicely asked her for a new one. She brought the SAME GLASS over with the SAME dirt in it. Doh. We arrived at 6 PM and sat outside. No one came to our table to take drink orders until 6:30 PM. We didn't get to order until about 7:10 when happy hour was over. She "did us a favor" and gave us HH prices. Does not take away from how rude this girl was. Food: just average. Pizzas took forever and came out cold. Even if I didn't get a lukewarm white pizza, it was still bad. The service was terrible.

STK has the very stereotypical meatpacking district feel to it. It's as if they can't decide if they want to be a lounge, a dance club, or a restaurant (but this indecision is clearly deliberate). I'm not dinging them for it, because it isn't like you don't know what you're getting yourself into, and if you're into that kind of thing you will absolutely love this place. They know what they're going for and they do it well. As far as the food goes, stay away from the seafood platter for the group. They will try to push it on you, but it's not worth it. The lump crab salad over a melon slice is fantastic, make sure you try that if you like crab. It doesn't really matter what main course you get, but for dessert you must try the s'more. It's not like any smore you've ever had. And they clearly used a small blow torch to crisp up the marshmallow. It's enough to split with 3 people, so don't think you need to each order a dessert.
