Wonderful service

We made our reservation several months ago. We were in town for the Preakness. Our large group inherited a stray person at the last minute. I called to inquire if another person could join the group.

My husband and I spent our 13th anniversary at this location. I had a filet, a wedge salad, and creme brulee. My steak was OK. It was edible but just not cooked well at all. My salad was wonderful I have nothing bad to say about that as well as my creme brulee. Our waiter was very nice but not... More

We haven't been here in 16 years. We were pleasantly surprised that the same quality service, the same decor and the same premium dishes and signature steaks are still served here. This really is your father's steak house. Portions large enough for sharing, steaks cooked to perfection, just the way you like them and a nice wine list. The flounder... More

We arrived early for our reservation to enjoy a drink at the bar and enjoy the music. Drinks were served promptly and my martini perfectly prepared. We were seated at a wonderful corner banquette for two and our server Bob presented the specials in a quirky but not unpleasant manner. We had brought our own wine. We had open to... More

Great interior looks like a nightclub. Buzzing and full.......but the food was really lacking which I put down to lack of supervision and quality control in the kitchen. The prime rib I ordered rare came out decidedly medium. If the kitchen didn't catch this, why didn't the waiter? They did exchange it for a rarer steak but I was not... More

We went here for my husbands birthday and were so impressed, we went back for my birthday. We ordered filet mignon, ribeye steaksteaks, au gratin potatoes and salads. All the food was delicious. This is not a place we can afford to go often but it is worth the price. I can't wait for our next special occasion dinner there.

My sister and I chose The Prime Rib to celebrate what would have been our father's 108th birthday. He loved prime rib and there's no better place to order it than the Prime Rib. We know this because of our many previous visits. From the warm greeting... to our table in the midst of the gorgeous, old fashioned, classy setting...to... More

This restaurant exudes a splendid timeless class. Definitely has a clubby atmosphere and dark decor, both meant in a positive way. Our waiter was fantastic, his service was on point, recommendations excellent (and never just the highest priced item to build the check), always there when we needed him, and anticipated what we might want with our dinner selections.

This place is classy cool. We loved the atmosphere and décor. Service was super once it got started. We waited quite a bit for menus and the first visit from our waiter, but we were a little late on our reservation and behind all of the other 8pm'ers, so that was understandable and you shouldn't come here if you are...

I wish that I could write separate reviews for food and service. I have visited The Prime Rib twice; once was with my girlfriends, and it was a wonderful experience. This last time was with my husband, and we will probably never go back. Positives: Free indoor valet parking. This was especially appreciated in the freezing cold, icy weather we... More
