This experience was awesome in every way. Starting with the parking attendant, we were treated well by friendly staff. We arrived early for our reservation on a sold out night, and were seated immediately. The waiter was great and attentive. We were checked on at just the right times. We started with the smoked salmon, which almost melted in my... More

Wonderful service and the best prime rib I have ever eaten. Expensive but worth it. Couldn't tell from the outside of the restaurant how delightful it would be inside.

This restaurant opened in 1965 so the sign says when you entered and so that's what it feels like. Unfortunately, the food hasn't been updated a bit. Now I'm not from Baltimore but this felt like we had entered a 1965 mob-controlled joint. That's kind of cool in itself and if the food had been exceptional I could have overlooked... More

One of the best steakhouses anywhere. The prime rib is terriffic and all the other steaks we have tried were excellent. Try the Prime Rib potato skins. All side dishes are Ala carte but they are enough for two to share. Make reservations and ask for the piano room if you want music with your dinner. There is a dress... More

This restaurant has locations in Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia - I have eaten in all three a number of times! If you want an upscale, upper price fine dining experience of steak, prime rib or other such dishes this is the place. Make a reservation!

The Prime Rib is the last word in upscale dining! Very non-descript from the outside, almost like an exclusive supper club. Inside found a full house complete with immaculately attired staff and piano music! Wonderful meat and fish entrees prepared to perfection. Jacket required on Saturday night just added to the overall elegance. Highly recommend!

Two couples observing two birthdays. Prime Rib is a traditional place for celebrations. Our waiter was apparently having a bad night. He consistently screwed up our orders, was very slow and even conked one of the ladies in our party in the back of her head. The food was OK but not up to their usual standards. For a $200+... More
