“NY Prime one of my favorites”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Hubby and I dined there last night and had a very nice time. This is my third visit and we ate there at my request. I really like the interior of the restaurant, the wonderful char on the steak and the helpful and friendly waitstaff. I'd like to give a shout out to Jacky G, we enjoyed talking with you last night and you made our meal more enjoyable. We were there early and the restaurant was nowhere near full, which we enjoy because its so much easier to relax and have a quiet meal. I've also been there during the busier part of the evening and have never noticed any issues with people smoking. Will definitely go back as soon as I can.

“Great Steaks and Service but TOO MUCH Tobacco Smoke”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The steaks were absolutely great along with the service of our waiter. Unfortunately, the tobacco smok from cigarettes and cigars would have me consider another high end steakhouse next time. They did meet my request of moving the initial table they gave us which was near the bar where alot of smoke was to another one away from the bar. The smoke was less present away from the bar but as it is a relatively small place, the smoke was still present.The food and sevice were great, but if you consider everyting you're paying for in a high end steakhouse, it comes out average.

“Cannot enjoy the food for the smoke!”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

In 2012, no legitimate restaurant establishment of high quality would allow smokers to impact the restaurant environment the way New York Prime does. Cigars and ashtrays in a restaurant just don't cut it. Supposedly, when complaining to the manager about the smell drifting over to our table, the excuse was there are "nebulous" Georgia laws that allow smoking in some food establishments. They can decide - either a "No Smoking" policy or I will never be back - no matter the quality of food or service! There are too many restaurants in Atlanta that do not allow smoking to interfere with an expensive restaurant experience than to put up with this place.

“Great steaks, but......”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

How should one balance the positives and the negatives here?

On the plus side were the excellent, succulent steaks cooked as ordered. Also, the sides complemented the steaks well, though the onion rings were below standard.

But, the minus column includes the following points. It was quite hard to find. The list of appetisers ought perhaps to be extended to include a soup, maybe French onion soup? The decision to allow smoking at the bar but yet not have sufficient ventilation to minimise the resultant unpleasant, pervasive odour is an error. And, the pricing is expensive, so there is a value issue.

So, on balance the rating cannot be better than average.

“good service and good food.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Steaks very good the service excellent. Celebrated our anniversary went around 6:00pm not that crowded but did get very crowded as the night went on. Excellent desserts and very good selection on sides. Good food - excellent service - what you will find in a really good steak house in atlanta.
