    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.

    This restaurant by far has the best food. It might be a little on the pricey side but it is well worth the money. Great steak, amazing cheese mashed potatoes, and cheesecake to die for (even the whipped cream is amazing). Portion sizes are great sizes.

    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.

    Would highly recommend NY Prime. Service was engaging and prompt. Requests were met with a smile and sincerity. Food was prepared perfectly. Had 2 small issues. 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.

    Great service, great food. We brought our own bottle of wine and paid the corkage fee. Expensive but worth it for a special occasion. Ice cream dessert was good....but the coffee was the best I have had in a very long time (even decaf).

    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.

    I took my dad here as a belated Father's Day dinner while he was in town along with my daughter. It had been years since we had been here and both had favorable memories of the food. We all left disappointed. I order the baked shrimp appetizer for us and we all thought they were over cooked and chewy. When our waitress finally came by after an extended period of time for a follow up and she asked how everything was I told her that the shrimp were overcooked and on the verge of being overly garlicy. Her response was "oh, okay." and she turned around and walked away. Not even an offer to remedy the situation in any way and it never was. When our steaks arrived and our 3 sides, they all seemed under seasoned and lacking flavor. Disappointing

    We had a great night. The service was beyond what we expected and the food was delicious. The live music is a nice touch too. Definitely a vibrant atmosphere, but it wasn't overwhelming. I have also read some critical comments of the cigar bar smells in the dining room. We sat in close proximity to the bar and we did not notice any cigar smell during our meal. We would highly recommend dinner here.

    The menu is limited, but the flavors and portions are good. The service was decent. I've experienced much more attentive service at Capital Grill and other streak restaurants. Found it odd that they permitted people to wear basketball shorts and baseball caps while charging $60 for a filet.

    The restaurant was nice but very hard to find especially when using your GPS. Ended up parking in the Monarch Tower parking deck in which I will add was a nightmare! With that said, the steaks are some the best we have had and you have a large choice of wines, etc. The sides are well let's just say, Shareable! All and all nice place but was a little disappointed that things were not done to make our wedding anniversary a little more special especially when reservations had been made (way) in advance. Total cost for two after tip, about $ 250.00 which included two steaks, a side of cheesy mashed potatoes, one cocktail each, two onion rings (literally), 1/4head lettuce with tomatoes (salad) and no dessert. Will we go here again? Probably not.

    Went to NYP as part of an anniversary celebration. Our host, Michael P., brought complimentary champagne, and our server was masterful. Glasses always full, plates disappearing without notice, courses well timed. While not inexpensive, it is on a par with all the fine steakhouses in Atlanta. You deserve a night at NYP, and take someone special. One final note, some reviews voice concern over smoke from the bar -- we had no issues with this and are sensitive to it. Let not your heart be troubled.
