The Loft Steakhouse is an upscale restaurant in Boro Park, yes Boro Park and not Soho in The City! Opened in 2013, the owner Yossi Gluck welcomes a sophisticated clientele, dressy, and perfect for romantic evenings for two and plenty of room for a table of ten. It’s walls of glazed exposed brick and warm chestnut and russet colors create an inviting Old World ambience, while the metal-encased lanterns and a glass waterfall wall, set in Jerusalem stones, form a contemporary aesthetic decor. There is an upper “loft” which yields ample space to accommodate up to 75 people for a family gathering, party or business function. Meanwhile, manager, Mattis and his team work hand in hand for elegantly prepared dishes with the highly acclaimed top-rated Executive Chef Boris Poleschuk. Chef Poleschuk graduated from the French Culinary Institute and went on to appear on the popular TV series, Hell's Kitchen. The restaurant has two kitchens: the downstairs prep kitchen, where the butchering is done, vegetables are chopped, sauces and stocks are prepared, and the upstairs kitchen, which is used for finishing and plating dishes.
Fine wine and cocktails are a great way to start the evening, from sipping the Strawberry Daiquiris or the Pina Colada. If you want something juicy and delicious, try the Chicken Lollipops made with crispy breaded drum sticks with mango chili sauce, Crispy Beef, and the Pulled Beef Sliders for appetizers. The sushi menu offers an array of special and tempura rolls like the The Explosion Roll with mango, kani, spicy salmon, special sauce, Natruto Roll with spicy salmon, avocado, crunch wrapped in cucumber, and Mattis’ favorite, The Sweetheart Roll made with spicy kani, cooked salmon, spicy tuna, avocado, cucumber, and soybean wrap. To get a taste of Chef’s Specials, the Salmon Mini Pizza and the Zaru Tuna are crispy fun bites. Entrees includes the Braised Short Ribs with it’s honey cider glaze, herbed baby potatoes and onion chutes. When dining at a steakhouse like The Loft, it is recommended to try something off the grill menu, like their 14 oz. Steak au Poivre (Pepper Crusted Filet), 24 oz. Black Angus Boneless Rib Eye, and the hottest steak of them all, The Surprise Cut made from the thin edge of a rib roast and best piece of meat of the entire cow. Their motto is “The Loft is where food stories are made” and there is always a happy ending in this story.

It was last minute on a Thursday evening and I remembered hearing of the change over of Bistro 1310 to The Loft located in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn which i don't normally frequent. After hearing that the quality of food ambiance and service was as good as the Manhattan steak house but at a slightly less expensive price we decided to try it out.
The restaurant gives a very old world feeling, with exposed brick walls with a very eloquent but not over powering ambiance.
The Menu is what I would say is classic American Steak House with a slight flair. For appetizers we had the chicken soup, and gnocchi sweet breads. The soup which was not $19 might have been $7 and was definitely tasty with a little emphasis on salty which I enjoy. The sweet breads were just delicious and savory coupled with gnocchi brings me back to the duck gnocchi at Mike's Bistro.
For our main dishes my wife had the skirt steak which was cooked to perfection, flavored nicely and a very generous portion for the non Manhattan pricing. I had the short ribs which for me is my go to, tell all dish about whether I give my blessing the on the food, and the restaurant gets my blessing! The short rib was a tender as possible with a classic bbq sauce set on top of mashed potatoes and crispy onions on top.
Now what is the big winner for me and honestly most important was the service. I can't find any faults it was just perfect. The restaurant was busy and had plenty of attentive staff, they were knowledgeable, water glasses were always filled, and food came out in a timely manner. Id like to make a note here this was in a busy restaurant while a Bar Mitzvah was beginning in the party room upstairs. I give the Owner/ management a lot of credit for having numerous waiters and bus boys and prepared for a busy evening, to often I am in high end restaurants and service is lacking due to short on staff and a real restaurateur/ chef knows this is just as important as good food. To show you how happy we were with service we tipped extra on top of the 18% that was included.
Last but not least as I hinted too earlier, this restaurant gave me a feeling like I was sitting in Mike's Bisto just in Borough Park. In my opinion that is a great compliment because Mike's Bistro to me equals a perfect balance of American cuisine coupled with great service ambiance and even better food.
