    Have eaten here probably 15 times, and have never had a single complaint. The food is always superlative, the service is excellent, and I always leave completely satisfied. Can't say this about all of the high-end places in the city. New York Prime is the best.

    Food and service were unbelievable as usual. However the bartender was dressed very inappropriately. Her dress (corset?) was so inappropriate that it made me uncomfortable to sit at the bar with my wife. In the past I have often brought customers to this restaurant with me and am now forced to find other restaurants that have bartenders dressed in proper attire.

    Our steaks had melted butter on them which we don't remember ever seeing before although the waiter said they had always done that. We disagree and will be asking for no butter in the future.

    If I lived in Atlanta, New York Prime would be my go to restaurant. We were celebrating my sons birthday and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect dinner and evening. Food was spectacular, service was excellent and the best I've experienced in a long time, and the gentlemen playing and singing was the cherry on top. I can see making this a must when I return for a visit. Thank you for exceeding my expectations.

    If you are dying for a great steak, this is the place - at least one the better steak houses. As is often the case the sides are overly large (but you can order a smaller portion - a nice option unless you're into 2 pound baked potatoes...Service was friendly and attentive, wine list was very good. We both had filet's. Hers the 8 oz., mine the 12 oz. I started with Oysters Rockefeller. There were four large shells, filled with spinach, bread crumbs and cheese melting all together. I'm sure there was an oyster in there somewhere...I'd leave the cheese out and use a butter/cream sauce a few herbs, but that's just me. The filets were terrific; right temp., great crust. tender and juicy.

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    I ordered the crab soup and wanted a shot of sherry on the side. I found out from the manager that they did not have any in the restaurant. For my main course, I ordered a New York Strip Steak with a hot pink center and steak fried. When my order arrived, it was well done, no hot pink center, and the steak fries were burned. I called this to the attention of my waiter and the waiter carried the steak back and later carried the fries back to be replaced. Bobby, the manager, came by and said my main course was on him. However, my steak came back quite sometime before my steak fries which dimmed my dining experience. I didn't go to New York Prime for free food, I went there for excellent food and to have a great time with my wife.

    I took my husband to New York Prime Steakhouse at Buckhead for his birthday. The restaurant made arrangements for a card and complimentary dessert. The food was excellent , although the sides had to be ordered separately and were a bit expensive. The service was good and the band was really good.

    A special thank you to New York Prime for celebrating our wedding anniversary with us. There were a few hiccups, but for the most part we enjoyed an awesome night great food and fantastic dinning experience. The host welcomed us by acknowledging our celebration and seating us promptly at our table. Our server was very friendly, attentive and engaging. The food was flavorful and presentation was superb. Only drawback was our steak was not cook to temperature and had to be returned. However, as great as the venue and staff were, they too care of the issue immediately. Overall, we were very satisfied with the entire night. It was spectacular and it would not have been possible without the crew at NY Prime.

    This is arguably the best steak in all of Atlanta. The service is amazing, the sides are fantastic andbitbhas a great bar. However, they allow smoking in the bar which almost ruins everything. Other than that, it's a near perfect restaurant.

I had the 8 oz petite filet and my husband had the new York strip and the steaks were so tender we could cut them with our forks. I simply love this place!

    The evening was perfect! The entire staff was friendly, attentive and accommodating. Our glasses were never empty, or even low. The food was cooked perfectly and the entertainer was very good as well. We had an unexpected guest show and this was handled with efficiency and professionalism that blew us away. My husband was the guest of honor and was treated as such. The young lady that was our server was outstanding and offered excellent recommendations and opinions. The entire party that joined us raved about the restaurant and we've all agreed that we will be returning.

    We were in the mood for steak, and New York Prime did not disappoint. Great steaks, and great sides for the table - sauteed spinach, mashed potatoes and onion rings. Dessert (we had apple pie) wasn't a standout, but still tasty. Most of our party ordered cocktails to start, but I would have expected wine suggestions for the entree. Definitely caters to an older "more established" crowd, but we (of a younger generation) would go again when we are looking for a great steak dinner.

    NY Prime was spot on once again. Both steak and fish were excellent at our table. The only problem with the cheesecake serving is knowing to order 1 for a table of 4. It was huge. The live music was good, but perhaps a bit too loud. I go there to eat, not to hear a concert. The music should be a bit more in the background of the experience, rather than the foreground.

    VERY expensive, very smoke-filled (yes, there's smoking in the dining area), and very noisy. The waiter insisted on calling all the women m'lady. On a Thursday night, there was live music in the bar area, and dancing. That said, the steak was delicious. If this is your scene, you'll like it. Don't go if you want good steak in a quieter environment.

The music was a bit load and we were happy when singer took a break. We were surprised upon entering the restaurant and found smoking at the bar. However once seated the smoke was really not evident.

    Our group of 17 was treated wonderfully. The service level was commendable. My only reservation about this place is the cigar smoke. Just beware the bar area allows for cigar smoking and there is no partition between the bar and dining room. Our group was ok with it, but someone sensitive to smoke would not be.

    Although we had difficulties finding the parking for this restaurant, both of the managing partners that were there the night we dined were extremely helpful -one even went outside the restaurant to help us find the restaurant. Once inside we were thoroughly pleased with every aspect of the experience. My husband's steak was the best he's every had (he's somewhat of a steak fanatic) and my lobster risotto was delicious! The ambiance was perfect, we sat close together in a booth that was roomy and our waitress was attentive. We've definitely found our "place" to go for special occasions. And to think I wanted to cancel our reservations when we couldn't find the entrance to the restaurant!!

    The food and service were good; however, we would not return because there are other great steak places in Atlanta where you do not have to put up with cigar smoke from the bar. Also, since the bar area is so close to the dining area, the noise level at the bar spills over into the dining area. The night we were there the bar crowd was rowdy and started singing out loud which made dinner conversation difficult. This was not the kind of dining atmosphere we expected.

    This is a great restaurant. The filet was succulent, the service was excellent, and this was a great place for an anniversary dinner with my wife. We didn't realize, however, that it is a cigar bar with a heavy tobacco smell. We did not bring our kids (like we often do), but I suspect that kids are not allowed in the establishment. Otherwise, it really was an overall great experience.
