    Still the best steak in town! And allowing smoking in the smoking section tables is also rare to find and appreciated.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 9/17/2008
    NY Prime was recommended by a friend of mine so I thought it would be a good place to take my clients. The first thing that we noticed when we walked in was the strong smell of cigar smoke. Once we passed the bar with the smoke, we were seated too close to the bar (even though I had requested in my reservation to be as far as possible from any smoking section). Once moved, it was more enjoyable. My steak was perfect;however my client felt that hers was too black on the outside and too rare on the inside. The cheese mashed potatoes were exceptional as was the white choc. banana pie. Overall great if you don't mind the smell of cigar while you dine. I would choose Ruth Chris over this place due to the smoke. The food quality is the same.

    The most attentive yet unobtrusive service I've ever seen! The server was always there when we looked for for him, did his job quickly, quietly, and professionally. The food was exceptional, prepared and served perfectly. I have always been highly impressed with this restaurant, but this time they took it to another level!

    Too loud. Tables were too close together. The food wasn't good.... the steaks were not properly cooked and had to be sent back. The service timing between apps, salad and meal was not good. Won't be back unless it is to meet friends for a drink at the bar and go to eat elsewhere.

    Resturant samll and open. Fun bar atmosphere if that is what you are looking for. Hard to hear your own conversation at a table for four. Would not recomend if you want a quiet dining experience. Smoking alloud in bar and smoke overflows into dining area.

    I have tasted steaks all over the world and I can guarantee that my boned ribeye was the best piece of meat I have ever try. Congratularions for the quality of the products that you offer, and the wonderful service that make us feel just as in home. Perfect spot and ultra professional restaurants. My best regards!

    Can't remember a better dinner with our friends. Steaks were prepared to perfection, side dishes and salads were delicious. Wine list was varied. No room for dessert. Service was great. Will return every time we're in Atlanta. May be the best steak house in America!

    NY Prime is consistently the best steakhouse in Atlanta. Bone's, KRathbun's Steak & Prime just do not pull it all together like NY Prime does. Highly recommend NY Strip sliced and the lobster here. I'm not typically into Banana Cream pies, but the one here is off the charts.

    Excellent server/service (Mike). Smoke from cigars in bar was annoying even though we were at the next to end booth. Better air management would have made the evening even more memorable. Liked the wine list order (by $$ within type). Live music was at a good volume - a bit above blending into the background but not noticeable.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2002VIP
    Dined on 7/12/2008
    The restaurant was very loud. Their was non-stop music coming from the one man band at the bar which is part of the dining room. So everyone at the place had to yell at each other to hear over "Jerimiah was a bullfrog" making the room even noisier. For some reason there was a large bar crowd - adding to the excruciating noise level. When you walk in th e door, you will be hit with the overwhelming stink of cigarette smoke coming from the bar which dominates the restaurant. The food was okay - but very expensive. With all of the restaurants in Atlanta there is no reason ever to go back to this place.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005

    The service was very good, but the busboys (personnel who clear plates, etc) were a little too eager. They often took one person's plate while the other person was still eating, and a couple of times assumed that a person was finished when the person was not finished eating. I think they could use a little more training in this area.

    This is a great restaurant. My husband and I had found this gem last April when we were in Buckhead on business. This time we took my two teenage sons with us. The food is outstanding. I will say though that the portions are really too big. My son ordered a single fettucini serving and there was a plate big enough for 2.5 people? I'm not sure why they insist on the servings being so big? My 13 yr old and I shared a steak and it was plenty for the both of us. I think the sides would be more appealing if they truly were 'single' sized servings and perhaps a bit cheaper due to smaller size. The world is too obese as it is. The desserts were great (per my teens) as my hubby and I did not order any dessert. thank you

    Impeccable service as always. I was unfortunate enough to get an overcooked petit filet. I asked for "medium rare +" and confirmed a "hot red center" I got a hot pink center....a full on medium if not medium +. But the flavor was good. My husband's strip was perfect. Wasn't really impressed with the chopped salad. Rathbun Steak's is MUCH better...more flavor. I'll go again, though.

    Restaurant is filled w/cigarette smoke from bar at the front of the room. Wait staff was not particularly friendly. Ordered steak medium. It came out rare. Sent it back. It still came back rare. There are plenty of other, much better, steak houses in Atlanta. I wouldn't waste my money here.
