    We asked for window seating in the reservation. No one ever called or emailed us to say no. Then when we got to the restaurant we were shown to a table next to a couple who were entertaining their two year old with an iPad while they ate. We don't usually watch cartoons during dinner so we got up and left. The host was a muscled up goon who did not seem to know what he was doing or how to treat customers.

    We frequent Pietro's Prime regularly. I travel a lot for business, and have been in many great restaurants around the country. Our server on Friday night was Kelly R. She was without a doubt one of the best servers I have encountered in many years. She was entertaining, attentive, and engaging. While the food is always good...Kelly made the night a memory. All four of the people in our party commented on the service. Great Job Kelly and Pietro's!

    Although it is little pricey for me personally, I had a gift certificate and wanted to try it out. I felt my greeting was less than warm, but the atmosphere was. I enjoyed the ambiance of this place; a little rustic with exposed brick and large windows looking out on the street. The menu is al la carte, and I was told that the sides are large enough for sharing. I was dining solo, so I was given the option of ordering a smaller side which I thought was a nice accomodation. I had the Pietro's Tuna Skins and the Pietro's Prime Salad. The skins had a very good flavor and I was actually full after that. The salad was okay, but quite ample. The service was excellent. Nice for a romantic dinner.

    My wife & I planned a night out for our 20th anniversary and we used that occasion to hit Pietro's for the first time. WOW.....we should never have waited so long to go there. We had a great night out and we both felt it was one of the best steaks (Filet Mignon) that we have ever had! Perfectly prepared and you could it without a knife! We'll certainly be back.

    First time checking it out. Would have been nice if the waiter asked if we had ever been there before so he could go over the menu--case in point i wasn't sure if there was a sauce included in my 8 oz filet mignon. My boyfriend's scallops were good but not sure if we would classify them as "jumbo". The onion rings, although large and abundant, had virtually no flavor. And yes, pricing is a little disproportionate to the servings for the main courses.

    Dinner at Pietro's Prime was fantastic. We started with the black and white tuna, which was delicious. I had the bone in filet special and my husband had the 30 day dry aged NY Strip special. Both were insanely good. Add in sides of lobster mac & cheese, asparagus and a nice bottle of red and we had a perfect meal. Service from John was great. The only complaint I have was the temperature situation in the restaurant - cold air blew very strongly (cooling our food too quickly) or didn't blow at all - allowing smoke from smokers to drift into the dining area (from the open windows). Also - the US was playing World Cup that night so the bar crowd was rowdy but it didn't take away much from our delicious meal. Will definitely be going again!

    Steaks here are always superb. Appetizers are very nicely concocted, and the side dishes are all scrumptious & served family style for sharing. Ambiance is not the reason for going, but the ambiance is better than okay - brick walls, nice decor - we like the second room from the front way better than the front room, which just feels busier and more exposed. The bar, which is on the other side of the corridor from the restaurant rooms, is well laid out - plenty of room for bar seats, plus a few tables at the far end, plus a bandstand area, with good sense of space all around. Menu prices are high (all a la carte), so we go here only as a treat; we are generally pretty frugal, and this place is a good value for an occasional splurge.

    If you are looking for a place to go for a special occasion and you feel their are those occasional restaurants truly worth their price, then Pietro Prime should be on that list. Our food selections as a table were diverse and everything was exceptional. Prime Rib: Flat out amazing. Steak: Out of the ballpark. Excellent. Fish: Fresh, flavorful, well prepared, delicious. Lobster Mac and Cheese: A MUST TRY side dish.

    We went on a friend's recommendation and we're not disappointed. I had the fillet and my wife the Delmonico and both were prepared precisely as ordered and were quite tasty! Ambience was good and noise very manageable. Service attentive but not overbearing. Somewhat pricey but about what we expected. Certainly, as good as the major chain steakhouses. We will likely return when steak is on the agenda and will recommend to friends.

    We went back to Pietro's for Dinner. As ever the filet mignon was fabulous.The mushroom soup is the best. Fabulous Shrimp Lejon. The only thing that was a bit disappointing was the side dish of au gratin potatoes, not much flavor or seasoning. The restaurant is a warm and cozy place to us. It is somewhere in which we feel very comfortable. The hospitality of the owner is tremendous and our waiter was excellent. We will be back many times in future.

    My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal at Pietro's (our first time there). We both ordered the sirloin strip but I got the regular and he ordered the 30 day aged, special steak. I actually liked mine better and it was much less expensive. The smashed potatoes were great, the mushroom side was okay and I did not like the sauteed spinach. Our waiter was terrific and the service was excellent.

    Was in the west suburbs of Philly on Business and wanted to have a good piece of beef, but am tired of the same old places in King of Prussia. Pietro's was a very pleasant find, great food, good service, and pleasant surroundings. Beef was tasty and prepared as requested, and the sides were prepared well, especially the onion rings. Will be on my short list next trip to Philly.

    We went here for Mother's Day dinner with our well-behaved 7-year old daughter. We were going to be seated in the dining room by one waiter, but we were wished away to a table in the bar area by a more senior waiter. It was so dark that you could'nt even see the menus (having an iPhone was a plus) with a big screen TV on with a game, next to the bar and stairs to the bathroom. Food was great and the table service was stellar. Perhaps better not to bring kids if you want a table with ambiance? Will not return.

    this is our favorite steak restaurant in Chester County. The steaks are savory and melt in your mouth. It is expensive, dinner for 4 with 3 martinis and 2 desserts, came to almost $300, but when you want a special meal in an old school dining establishment, this is a great place to go. Our waiter couldn't have been more attentive, we actually joked that there was a microphone at the table, because as soon as we mentioned something, he showed up to take care of it. The dining room is pleasant with brick walls and dark woods. All in all, a nice place to have a good steak dinner with friends.

    This will be the third time I went to pietros prime and I have to say I have been consistently happy and impressed every time. I love the vibe there with live music and a darker setting- it's very romantic but not too loud where you can't hold a conversation . The service has been great each time with a knowledgable and nice waiter/waitress...and the food is just delicious. Yes it is a little pricey but well worth it. I had the filet oscar style and it was out of this world delicious!!i think my man and I have found our new favorite spot!
