Four of us went to the Prime Rib a couple of months ago to celebrate our Birthdays. We were very disappointed because the portions were smaller, and the prices were higher. All of us said we would not return. There are plenty of other restaurants that have excellent food and service. I e-mailed Prime Rib and told them of our... More

This prime rib restaurant has a pedigree and deserves it. The prime rib is excellent as is the selection of wines. The wait staff is attentive and quite warm. The restaurant is comparable to Mortons.

Everyone in Maryland should dine in this historic landmark restaurant of Baltimore, at least once in his / her lifetime! Dining here takes one back to the Fifties, or earlier, when posh dining venues, with artistic traditional food, perfectly prepared, was the norm in the classical restaurants. Service is perfectly timed and executed with excellence, in a serene manner. Yes,... More

This was my first experience there. I ordered the steak medium well but when I cut into it, there was no pink at all. It was quite dry. I don't like to complain much and the waiter did not care that it was well done. The rest of my party's food was cooked properly so why would I want to... More

The steak here was out of this world good. yes it is pricey and well worth it as this was one of the best steaks I have every had. Although the dress code is business casual, would recommend dressing business as a lot of staff and customers do. Very great steak.

I just had the pleasure of eating at The Prime Rib in Baltimore this past Friday evening. I split a Ceasar salad and asked and received extra anchovies. The salad was fresh and crisp romaine lettuce with shaved parmesan cheese mixed into the dressing. This was followed by the large prime rib (bone on) cooked to medium rare served with... More

I had the prime rib as my entree and it was excellent! It's was a large portion of meat cooked perfectly. The service, from the staff at the door, to our waiter, was also great.

We have been going to the Prime Rib for at least 10 years and it has remained consistently the best in steaks, prime rib and service. It started out as a special occasion restaurant but quickly became a favorite weekend place to dine. Service is far and above most restaurants and the staff prides themselves on this. I've also had... More
