Great West Chester Steakhouse
The mushroom soup is a must! The filet was perfectly cooked, a yummy perfectly seasoned crust and warm pink center. The smashed potatoes were delicious. Our server recommended a Cabernet which went very well with out meal.

We wanted to sit outside and
We wanted to sit outside and didn't know the back patio area was a smoking area so we had to sit out front along busy Market Street. There were lots of motorcycles riding by for some reason making it very hard to have a conversation. It is a shame the back patio is a smoking area. The food was great and the service but the outdoor dining options were frustrating.

What a nice Surprise!!!
I have passed by this place many times on my trips into West Chester and alway wondered how it would stack up against all of the other great places that the city has on the restaurant end...to my great surprise Pietro's Prime is a Great Steak & Seafood place...they had many unique dishes as well as the standard Steak n Seafood dishes...my Cajun Delmonico steak was one of the Best Steaks I have ever had...cooked to my liking and served with Crumbled Blue Cheese, Wow...there were many other toppings and sauces to choose from...the menu is A la Carte so we tried two of the sides and they were great too! There was a large and lively crowd in what was the back room and a band was playing in the bar which just kind of added to the ambiance!

Celebrated our anniversary
Celebrated our anniversary here on the recommendation of friends- made for a terrific meal and a wonderful evening.Staff was welcoming and accommodating- offering to re-seat us as the first table presented was almost in hallway,and close to the wait station. Service was excellent- our friendly, informative waitress gave us great direction as first-time Pietro's patrons. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his cowboy ribeye - marveling at each and every bite. I ordered the 8 oz filet- only one word to describe it: perfect. With no kids in tow, we felt free to skip a green vegetable and ordered the onion rings instead - there is nothing in the world to compare to an onion ring done right! Ordered the NY cheesecake-not sure the name fits, but WOW!

Great food, good service.
Great food, good service. We enjoyed the ambiance of old brick and candlelight. The live music coming from the bar area wasn't too loud for the dining room, and was great background music for a good dinner.

Great Place. The Steaks really
Great Place. The Steaks really were amazing, tender and juicy. The salad with arugula and strawberries was fantastic. The best I have had in quite awhile. The staff was incredibly friendly, attentive and helpful. The pace of the meal was perfect. It was just right - not too fast and not too slow. Too many chain places make us feel rushed. Overall a very enjoyable dinner and evening.

Great restaurant. A little noisy but the filet is exceptional. This is more of a steak house, but a truly top notch one.

The bone-in filet was the best I have ever eaten. The menu offered many excellent choices. Other then the fairly high noise level, I would highly rate this restaurant.

Wonderful Mothers' Day dinner
Took my wife and daughter out for Mother's Day. Grerat food; great service. The best steak I've had in years -cooked perfectly.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Celebrated our son's graduation from West Chester University here. Steak house with. Outher American choices on the menu plus a few specials. Our party of 8 arrived about 30 minutes early. Our table was not ready so we just had a couple of drinks at the bar while we waited.
Service was attentive and helpful despite handling several larger groups for dinner. The 20% gratuity added to the bill was well deserved.
Tips: Valet parking service offered in colder weather months. Parking garage one block down iI've. free on weekends.

Great Lunch Deal
We took our son to Pietro's after his high school graduation. The lunch menu was perfect. The staff was very accommodating with our group. We will definitely go back.

It is always a treat to have a meal here. The food is beyond excellent.

Was in town for a jazz reunion...went to school there many years ago and things have changed..for the better. We had dinner earlier than usual so the place was all ours. the atmosphere was really nice and understated and I would assume at night very romantic. The service was top notch and very attentive. In our travels we are used to very fine upscale dining and Pietro's did not disappoint in the least. The steaks were done exactly right and the steak fries were some of the best I ever had. The menu was as it should be..so much looked good it was hard to decide. And finally, the Southern Comfort Manhattan was right on! Wish we lived closer to become regulars.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love Pietro's for all occasions. They are our go to place. Their steaks are the best. Tender and cooked to order every time. We have never had an off night. Martini bar is great also! See you again soon.

Great meal. Our only issue
Great meal. Our only issue was a family of five seated next to us. One of the boys placed his chair about one foot away from the table. This made it difficult for the waitress to get around them and she repeatedly bumped into us. My husband tapped the young man on the shoulder and asked him to move his chair in which he did for a brief time but eventually moved back. Not sure why the two adults at the table didn't tell him to move in - rude young man
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great place for lunch in downtown West Chester. $10 for soup and half sandwich was an excellent deal.

"You get what you pay for!"
One of my wife's favorite sayings. So true in the case. The steaks are a little pricey but, well worth it. The owner purchases the beef from a specific ranch, I don't remember all the details. But it's grass fed angus beef. The flavor was excellent. One of the best steaks I have had in a very long time, cooked to perfection as we requested.
The Waiter was exceptional, after my wife ordered a specific drink, he did warn her it was a little sweet. When he came back to check, she did indeed say that it was very sweet. He then returned with some club soda to cut the sweetness without even being asked. Very thoughtful. It's always the little things that people appreciate.

Great Steak in West Chester
Pietro's is a great place for steak in West Chester, PA. The food was great. Good place for a special occasion/celebration. Casual atmosphere.

I loved dining there, the food was amazing just as it was in the past! Our waiter, Mike, was so friendly and helpful. It was a great afternoon/ evening and I look forward to going again.

Good selection of steaks and seafood. Salads were fresh and tasty. Wine list provided some incredibale bargains, and was overall extremely reasonably priced.

We had a wonderful dinner
We had a wonderful dinner and the food was delicious. The service was outstanding as well. But for the price, the fact that your entree comes with absolutely zero sides (i.e. meat or fish on the plate and that's it) is a little disheartening. The a la carte sides just feel a little excessive given what other quality restaurants offer. Otherwise this was an excellent dining experience.

Martini's were excellent and wide variety of choices.
French Onion soup, Shrimp Scampi, and Cowboy Ribeye were perfectly prepared.
Service was attentive without being interruptive.
A great dinner on a Sunday afternoon. Most definitely will be back.

Great dining experience.
First time at Pietro's Prime, for our 34th anniv. Reservation for 6:00, seated when we arrived. It was a pleasant fall evening and we were at one of the front windows which was open, letting in the wonderful evening breeze. I enjoying the feeling of being at a French bistro. Loved the ambience, all decked out for autumn. Our waiter Mark was friendly and knowledgeable. If you like Crown Royal try the Pietro cocktail, they don't skimp. Onion soup for DH and an arugula salad for me. He then ordered the special 60-day dry aged beef and I the sliced filet with roquefort sauce. Everything was delicious and prepared as ordered. We both agree that we will be returning to Pietro's. Looking forward to a trip back in December.

5 stars is not enough!
Our food was amazing, our waiter Mike was fabulous and we had a room to ourselves!
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a lunch visit for myself and one client. Our server was great. We really enjoyed the Lobster Bisque. We both also had the filet and a side of mashed potatoes, which we agreed were also really good, but the soup definitely took 1st place on this visit. Expect to spend $20-30 per person without alcoholic drinks.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Steak was perfect, apps were fantastic and the setting was very good. Highly recommended.

We celebrated my daughter's
We celebrated my daughter's birthday. Food and atmosphere were wonderful! Hats off to Pietro's Prime! Only thing I would not recommend - steamed asparagus. It was bitter and sour - simply awful! But, everything else was over the top!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pietro's Prime has incredible food from their appetizers to their desserts. The atmosphere is wonderful. The rooms have exposed brick walls which is so beautiful and fitting for the borough of West Chester. You do not feel rushed if you want to just enjoy and nice relaxing dinner. The entrees were nice sized portions and the taste was incredible. I would definitely recommend this place. The front dining area is great with the windows to look out onto Market Street however it does get a bit noisy when there is a band playing because the bar is right in the next room which is not completely closed off. I hear the bar is a great place to visit as well so will be trying that next.

When Steak is excellent
This was our first time at Pietro's.When my husband says his steak is excellent, it has to be great. We went to lunch here and he was disappointed there were only two choices of steak on the menu.Nonetheless,he loved the NY Strip he ordered. He also loved his smashed potatoes. The Shrimp Lejon was prepared perfectly. Shrimp was tender and succulent with excellent flavor. We can't say enough.5 stars for the mushroom soup. Not easy to prepare correctly, but they did it! Our waiter was nice and professional. This restaurant is upscale and comfortable at the same time. I wish we lived right around the corner, I'd go to Pietro's and never cook again.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
We were moved to a table by the fire and our server turned the eagles game on for my husband. My filet was overcooked, but our server Mike quickly took it and shortly returned with a perfectly cooked steak:)
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
A well-paced meal
We were looking for a place to relax, enjoy good food, and have time and atmosphere for conversation. Our waiter paced the meal exceptionally well. He seemed to tune into our needs, never rushed us, but timed the courses perfectly. His service added so much to a meal that was excellent.

Food & Service
This was my wife and mine 6th year anniversary. Our 1st year anniversary we attended this restaurant and I remember enjoying myself. 5 years later I was looking for some place nice to take my wife. I didn't want to drive into Philly or go to KOP, suddendly I remember Pietro's and decided to go at it a second time. Not only was it our 6th year anniversary but our first date night in about 1.5 years since we have to small babies. I requested a quiet romantic table and they came through. The food was AWESOME, Cowboy Steak was spot on, the tempura lobster were delicious. I don't EVER write reviews, but i couldn't help myself, we had a great time and the food was great.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Valet parking is reasonable at $5 and worth the door-to-door service. A comfortable interior with brick walls suggesting a loft-like ambiance; but more likely to show the building's historic character. The "specials?" Variations on beef; aged rib eye, tender prime beef. Sides of creamed corn - sweet - and flavorful smashed potatoes, all in all everyone in our party happy with the quality and flavor of our dinners.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The service was outstanding and our waiter was very knowledgable. The food was perfect, and the Martinis were off the chart.

Great, but ...
Overall great dining experience. Creatively prepared side dishes; wonderful chocolate lava cake dessert. Steaks good, but very pricey. Great draft beer choices, but glass of cabernet was well above "room temperature". Attentive service was friendly and contributed to a happy evening.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is our go to restaurant for outstanding steak dinners and special occasions. The menu is a bit pricey, but worth the cost for a special event.

Steak Lover's Find
After 2 visits to Pietro's, my girlfriend & I agree that the 30day aged steak is the best we have ever had. The service has been nothing short of impeccable.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent meal, as always. This is our go-to place for great steaks.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a party of 7 on Friday evening and had a great time. We were celebrating two Birthdays and our server, Larry, went out of his way to make my Wife and Son feel special. The food and service were excellent-I agree with other reviewers that I prefer PP to Mortons, Ruth'sChris and Sullivan's. The personal touch, food quality, wine list, everything was special.
Larry was very helpful to our guest that is gluten free. While we didn't hang in the bar- even the music from the bar was great!
My Wife and I can't wait to go back with just the two of us.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Last minute date night with my wife. Had a drink at the bar and then dinner. The service and food where very good.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Pietro's Prime made our anniversary night special! We started the night out with complementary champagne and finished with savory cheesecake. In between we had two of the best filet's we'd ever had!
A downfall was the expensive bill do it is not a place we'd go often but was perfect for our special occasion.
