Diner Reviews
  • "Love the live music at Pietro's! 4-5 nights a week! We went with friends and they really enjoyed their food, steak and sea scallops. For us being vegan at a steak house is never easy, but John, our waiter found one appetizer on the lunch menu that we could have, but it is our only choice, kind of a mushroom salad that was a little redundant after our green salads. The beer on tap was REALLY expensive, and not that great, so next time I will stick to a basic bottle beer! John was totally cool! Wonderful personality and attentive without being annoying. He is probably studying for his PhD! Very intelligent! We especially appreciated his not treating us like we were weird for being vegan! Went out of his way for us!"

  • "Had an excellent family diner for a combination of birthdays and anniversaries. All of our steaks were excellent. Read some earlier reviews about the wait time for service. This did not occur. With drinks and appetizers, the time between everything was as expected. Special kudos to our waiter, Larry. He was especially attentive to my 93 year old moth-in-law who was nervous going to this restaurant."

  • "This was my second visit to Pietro's. Both times, the food was superb. My most recent visit left a lot to be desired in terms of atmosphere. Besides the 5 other couples seated in the back room was a table of approx 25 guys out for a bachelor party dinner. Needless to say, the noise level was annoying not to mention the language that was being used at the table. Next time, put them in a private room. I expect better from a restaurant of this caliber."

  • "We had a great meal, however it was quite loud and grew even louder when the bachelor party was seated in the back section where we were."

  • "Girls night out and a birthday celebration was made perfect by the staff, food, and libations at Pietro's. We had appetizers, main course, sides, dessert and an assortment of martinis and wines. Everything was delicious. The steaks were a special treat, cooked to perfection but so was the sea bass and lobster tail. We loved the appetizer special, lobster tempura.what a treat! We had great desserts also including a lemon cake and cheese cake. Our waitress was extremely attentive and helpful. We sat (by request) in the bar area by the fireplace and stayed for almost 3 hours lingering over after dinner drinks and enjoying the live music. Thanks Marissa and crew at Pietro's ..it was a great birthday experience."

  • "The food was good, the drinks were great, it was fairly overpriced for steak and everything a la carte so the bill was price. The noise level in the room was high and if we weren't almost done with our meal very disturbing had to shout to hear my husband."

  • "Went here with my boyfriend for a date night, and everything was perfect. Our food was absolutely delicious, the waitress was attentive and kind, and our Martini's were amazing as well. The ambiance was quiet, but that's because it wasn't packed when we were there on a Thursday evening. This restaurant is pricey, but it's fabulous for a special occasion."

  • "Excellent food, but staff does not compliment it. Meal included Prime Rib, Lobster Ravioli (special), Smashed Potato and Asparagus. Food was excellent and you won't be disappointed in the taste, presentation, or portions. I expected this place to be upscale, so I was disappointed that the staff. Upon arrival it was uncomfortable as Host was staring at us (my wife), but provided no greeting. Restaurant was empty, but did fill up over the 90 minutes. Waitress was friendly but, we lost her as the meal went on and she was assigned multiple tables. She did apologize for her best friend being seated, which didn't help. I would recommend, but warn of my experience with hopes that it was a fluke. Would love to see this chef succeed."

  • "The food at Pietro's is AMAZING. No matter what we order, the food is always consistently cooked to perfection, flavorful, and beyond delicious. Since it opened, it has been one of our favorite places. Unfortunately, we can only go there when we have roughly three and a half to FOUR HOURS to spare. We show up on time, with a reservation, and our tables are never ready for at least an hour. While every server is friendly & personable, service always takes an extremely long time- long time lapses occur between when we are seated and when our drink orders are placed, and then until our drinks arrive, and then it's another while before our orders are taken, followed by another eternity until food comes. They need a better system!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Pietro's misses the mark on its service. Offering prime steaks for fifty nine dollars and having service like Applebees misses the mark. From the lack of a proper greeting (borderline rude) by the "maitre d" to being asked who had which salad..."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "My wife and I have known about Pietro's for some time but have never been. We are truly glad that we went. We don't often eat steak, but when you're at a steakhouse it's almost and obligation. What a treat! So much flavor and wonderfully prepared. The decor is warm and pleasant, and the service was top notch. Highly recommend making reservations. There weren't more than a hand full of parties when we arrived at 6:00 PM. Within 30 minutes there were almost no tables left. We probably will reserve this restaurant for special occasions due to the price (which was worth every penny) but Pietro's is a must for anyone in the West Chester area who has never been."

  • "A good resturant is one that does more than go through the motions only half heartly. A second bottle of $100+ wine is not just emptied into the decanter without tasting. Steaks shoudl have flavor and served at the right temperature. If you want to be a Steak House, act like one"

  • "February 14th - Valentine's Day - The food and service was exceptional. I have been to other restaurants on "special" days and the food and service has been less than special. Pietro's Prime has made a difference on "special day" dining. I cannot say anything negative about our evening out. Good food ... pleasant staff ... it was a GREAT evening out!!"

  • "We recently moved into the West Chester area coming from Philadelphia. We typically head into the city for special dinner events but since moving we are trying more local restaurants. At the suggestion of some friends I decided on Pietro's and couldn't have been happier. The food was excellent and they had a lot of specials adds to the menu. Being used to city prices I was pleasantly surprised when the check came, not to say it was a cheap meal but well worth it. If the rock shrimp fritters are on the menu I highly reccomend them."

  • "Good restaurant, but be prepared to spend your paycheck."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I would have given service a better rating but we didn't get steak knives before our dinners came out and a side dish came out 10 mins after dinners came out. As someone that served for 10 years, steak knives must be on the table before the steak, no excuse for that"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Noisy. Tap water tasted like chlorine. Bought the chef recommended $55 16 oz. 30 day dry aged...would have enjoyed the ribeye more for $18 less. Onion rings, mushrooms were very bland, creamed spinach good, Carrot cake very good."

  • "very nice restaurant great food and our waitress was very bubbly and that makes the atmosphere fun"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Great food. Great drinks. The family-style sides were very good, we chose mashed potatoes, asparagus & spinach. The food is a little on the pricey side, but we expected that and the food was definitely worth it. The dining area at Pietro's gives off a very rustic feel which I really enjoyed. Overall, it was a great place to celebrate a special occasion (birthday) and I hope to return soon."

  • "The food was good, but I ordered my ahi tuna rare, and it came out almost well done. I send food back once a year, maybe...and this was my one time in a very long time. To charge $27 for an ahi tuna steak and present it almost well done was disappointing. The staff was absolutely amazing and I would go back in a heartbeat, but I think the chef needs to learn rare vs. well done. I would have been embarrassed to send that tuna steak out knowing it was not even close to the temperature it was ordered. Mike the server, was great. He made appropriate small talk, got to know me, and was very attentive to me as a guest dining alone in the restaurant. Thanks for the good time, I will be back!"
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "The food is very good, especially the well-aged and succulent steak: broiled crust, juicy rare interior. Black and white tuna appetizer fresh and vibrant, salad an unusual mix. The atmosphere is composed, in a room of multiple patinas and comfy lighting. After 30 min, ditzy server arrives, doesn't light the candle, needs to be asked for a wine list, disappears for half an hour, brings bread to some tables but not others, takes wine glasses away, disappears for another half hour...doesn't have either of the the first two wines ordered, comes back in 30 minutes, actually asks the diners where the wine glasses went: you get the picture. UPDATE YOUR WINE LIST. TRAIN YOUR WAITSTAFF. With ultra-high prices, the least you can do is do your job."

  • "When I go to a steakhouse I expect a great steak. Both my steak and my husbands were overlooked and tough. Our appetizer was mediocre and the prices were absurd. I would have had a better steak at outback for a 1/4 of the price."

  • "We have lived in this area for 28 years. The restaurant scene and choices are the best in the county This is a choice for steaks, but up against steak houses in Philly would be a quiet stop Chester county could use a steak house and then wouldn't mind paying those prices"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Once again I had an amazing experience at Pietro's Prime. Great service! Great food! In addition to amazing steaks, the onion rings and creamed corn are personal favorites. They also had a Frank Family Cabernet on the wine list. That is a rare and happy find in PA."

  • "I work in West Chester and was looking forward to trying Pietro's Prime. I wish I had skipped it. From the moment I entered the restaurant and was ignored by the host, I was wondering how the restaurant stays in business. Because it was a cold day, I thought it would be a good idea to start with a cup of soup. Bad idea. I had the mushroom soup and although there were a lot of mushrooms in it, the soup was not at all tasty and I quickly pushed it to the side. I also thought it made sense to go with a steak since the restaurant is a steak house. Again, bad idea. I got the filet cooked medium rare. It came out medium to medium well and had an unpleasant flavor so I didn't eat it. When I left, the host ignored us. Bad all around."

  • "I planned a dinner for 8 and we were seated in a very cute area separated from other diners. It was perfect for our group and allowed us to enjoy each other without bothering others with our raucous conversation. We all had steaks that were cooked to perfectio and the sides were just the right size for sharing. Our server was excellent. We had a very good experience and would go back again."

  • "Food and Service were outstanding. Our server recommended some great drink options. The menu was full of interesting dishes making it hard to choose. My steak was done perfectly which is hard when you order it medium well. Cut with a butter knife."

  • "I didn't expect much since it was New Years Eve but I was wrong. The food was excellent and prepared well. (slightly disappointed that the potato wasn't very hot) The bone-in Filet was killer. We got a reasonable bottle of wine which tasted excellent. Our server was funny and helpful. All in all the night went well. I must say that we paid top dollar for our meal but for a special night it was worth it."

  • "Our party of five enjoyed a fabulous dinner on New Years Eve. No limited menus here! All the regular wonderful meals were offered along with specials. We had tender perfectly cooked steaks ( each with a different cut ). We also had two non meat eaters. They ordered a lobster dinner and a fish dish. Both raved! Our appetizers were served timely and well presented and delish. Ou server was hopping as this is a popular spot and it was a full house. She was attentive and sweet and funny. Cannot say one bad thing. This was our fifth trip to this local action in the last few years and we would go again and again. After dinner there was a lively group in the bar and a live band. Made for a great New Years Eve. You won't be disappointed on any date"
