    I have been to this restaurant 5 times. It is consistently very good. The last time I went there, however, the service was not great. The most recent time I went there, the food was very good, but not quite as good as it had been previously. We ordered the porterhouse for 2 people and a side of fries. The steak was a little fatty and we received half a bowl full of fries. The wine list is very expansive but there are few decent options. The wines are either very expensive (greater than 80 bucks per bottle) or reasonable (40 bucks per bottle). The reasonable bottles are not so good. I wish they carried better wines in the $40-50/bottle range.

    The food was pretty good, my boyfriend got the 16oz New York Strip, and I got the Stir Fry steak. We got the fried calamari as an appetizer. The fried calamari came with some fried chips/something like that? It was really good. Not too salty and tasted great. The stir fry vegetables with steak wasn't worth it at all. He enjoyed the New York Strip. I personally would not go back, but it is a nice place to go to once.

    Been coming here for special occasions for 3 years. You get what you pay for, so I am unable to come often, but now that they are open for lunch on select days of the week for customers in the know. I come here kind of regularly now for the best Hamburgers in the city made with their hand select prime meat. I feel guilty sharing my secret.

    The steak for two is an extra-thick cut, takes 30-40 minutes to cook--but my goodness, what an exceptional piece of meat. That's the bottom line here: the steaks are pricey but really excellent. Not a very fancy atmosphere. Sides were just OK, scallion garnish for the meat really excellent.

    We came here for my birthday dinner, good for groups of all sizes. Noise level was perfectly fine to accommodate an intimate dinner for two and also a group of twelve. The kitchen is open so you can see all the cooking if you sit in the booths. It's a very nice restaurant with casual touches - information about they're aging process is written on a chalk board. The meal was excellent. We started with an appetizer of the braised pork belly and had to order another one because it was so good. The sauce was divine and it was a nice mix of meat and fat. We ordered both the porterhouse and the dry aged rib eye. The ribeye in my opinion was much better. It was a better combination of char to meat. The scallion salad was the perfect side dish

    I made a last minute reservation here for 5:30PM for my boyfriends birthday and it was absolutely perfect. I wanted to try this place out because I heard great reviews of their steaks. This place is very unique because they show you the steak before they actually cook it. My boyfriend ordered the wet aged new york strip and said it was one of the best steaks he's had in his life.. It made me so happy! I had the bulgogi and parmesan fries & it was great! Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Could not say anything bad about my experience and I wish to come back soon!

    We wanted to try this restaurant since we read the great review on Epoch Newspaper. The service was great, the appetizers were nice, and they even celebrated my daughter’s birthday with a beautiful cake. However, we rate as "good" because the main part of the dinner: steak didn't come out as we requested. We requested medium rare and medium to well-done for two 2-people size steaks. They both came out quite rare and we had to return one of them to re-cook.

    My favorite steak joint in the city. They clearly want you to love it, not because they want your business but because they love it too. Our server was great at recommending options for our large party of 7, often encouraging us to order less than we were planning. That's a big part of cultivating regular customers right there. And they did!

    I arrived with a reservation for a group of 4 and we were seated immediately. Our server made solid recommendations and the food was great. The kimchi and scallion "slaw" that accompanied our steaks were both fantastic. I also appreciated that the owner was active in the dining area. Definitely recommended.

    They take their steak seriously and do it very well. Prime and Beyond is located a little below street level and is very modern, with a lot of mirrors and chrome and black colors. Candles added a certain amount of luxury and isolation for each table but the long narrow space is an open, airy one which was really nice. We went here twice and both times, they have not disappointed. We sampled the rib-eye, kolbi, and the NY strip, all of which were great. Nothing beats the rib-eye. Definitely would recommend and it's a place I would bring friends to impress them.

    This is one of my staple, treat for myself, steakhouses. They have excellent beef cooked with precision, a tasty wine list, and the korean accents to the food and side dishes are a nice change up from the standard wedge salad and creamed spinach. For your less adventurous friends this might be an interesting , but still familiar testing of the culinary waters of NYC. The best part? Its not as much of a hassle to get a table as it is at Peter Luger or Quality Meats (my other staples), at least for now.

    I live in the neighborhood and it's really the only place here to get a great steak. Steaks are great quality. Service always super friendly and helpful. Love the sea salt tastings and the little salads that come with the steaks. Been here 3 times within the last 2 months, and visits 2 and 3 within the same week. Lol!

    We went to Prime & Beyond for an early dinner after a matinee to celebrate our son's 18th birthday with some big steaks. The food was fantastic. We had multiple starters and all were top notch, but the pork belly was particularly outstanding. And of course, the steaks were perfectly prepared with a large variety of cuts and preparations to choose from. But it was the service that made our night great. Our waiter was so engaging and helpful. It added an extra layer of fun to an already fun night out. Charming, charming place.

    Great meat and friendly service highlight this east village steak house. Wet and dry aged steaks headline the menu and once they make it to your plate you will not be disappointed. The waiter will even show you your raw cuts of beef prior to them being cooked up and served. No hard liquor served but a great wine list and plenty of sake based cocktails. Restaurant decor was a bit lacking and with the exception of Kimchi burger accouterments, the fact that this place has Korean roots is somewhat lost . Definitely recommend this for groups, dates or just a night out to get a good steak.

    If you are looking for great steaks and attentive service in congenial surroundings this is the place. While it's not inexpensive you'll find all the quality in the steaks of the higher-end steak houses while not breaking the bank. And on top of that, the house-made kimchi, scallions and pork bellies are a huge bonus.
