    What should have been a nice meal, with good food delivered by a friendly server was dampened by classic service fail. Why take reservations if you are going to run more than a half hour behind? The only excuse is deliberate over booking. 5 or 10 minutes behind can happen, but 30+??? Should NEVER happen. What's worse is that had we not asked at 30 minutes we may never have been seated. You'd think that running that far behind they might come to the bar to get a customer who is patiently waiting. Rather as we saw others being seated we asked and "oh...i can seat you right now." Too bad because the food was good, but there are plenty of good restaurants who respect customers patronage. I would be hard pressed to recommend Pietro's Prime.

    Although the menu has variety, beef should be your focus. The filets are excellent and the sharing of sides is a great touch. We have found the wait staff to be knowledgeable and on top of their games.

    the noise level in the dining area was ridiculously high. Had to scream to talk at my own table. Frankly Chucky Cheese would be quieter. Food and service were good but overall the experience was bad as I went home with a headache. Not what I expect from a premier steakhouse.

    This wasn't our first trip to pietros and it won't be our last. The service was attentive without being intrusive, and incredibly pleasant. The food is still the draw and everyone in our party loved their respective selections. I love this place and look forward to our next visit.

    While we have been there numerous times and enjoy the food, the noise level still bothers us. We have been in several rooms, if there are more than couples dining, the noise increases greatly when a party of 4 or more comes in.

    My fiance' and I took a friend from out of town to Pietro's for dinner a few weeks back. The restaurant can be slightly loud on a Saturday evening, however it's too loud as other restaurants in the borough. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. Came by frequently, but not too frequently, to make sure we were happy. It was very nice not to have our meal interrupted every 5 minutes. We all ordered steak which was cooked very nicely, in addition to the seafood which was nice and tender. Not overcooked and rubbery.

    Very expensive place!!! Bring your wallet, not your appetite! You pay greatly for small portions of food. If you are going on a "date" night or romantic evening skip this place. You have to scream to talk to each other here! Good food but nothing over the top to make you want to spend your money here!!!

    The boneless ribeye was very dry and chewy. Maybe we chose the wrong cut of beef but it was absolutely flavorless for being a steak house. That being said our waitress was very knowledgeable and courteous.

    The food was just fair and very over priced. The air conditioning was so cold we wore sweatshirts and coats throughout the dining experience. Asked the waitress several times and she said there was nothing she could do. We should have left. It was so cold it hurt our bones and gave me a sinus headache. The server was too interactive and interrupted our conversations many times. My wife's filet was chewy and dry. The waitress said it was because my wife wanted medium well it gets dry and tough sometimes. My filet was cooked the same and was ok.

    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!
