    This will be the third time I went to pietros prime and I have to say I have been consistently happy and impressed every time. I love the vibe there with live music and a darker setting- it's very romantic but not too loud where you can't hold a conversation . The service has been great each time with a knowledgable and nice waiter/waitress...and the food is just delicious. Yes it is a little pricey but well worth it. I had the filet oscar style and it was out of this world delicious!!i think my man and I have found our new favorite spot!

    Food was a little less on the expected/ anticipated. My cream corn was a little bland. My wife's shrimp was more of a blackened style. Too well done on the grill. She was not happy with it. Her steak as well as mine was excellent. Our soups were excellent and would be ordered again. Service and friendliness of staff couldn't have been better. We will eat here again. Please don't "fire " the chef based on our review. We live in California and will take Philadelphia restaurants any time.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I've enjoyed m visits to Peitros. I feel it's almost at the level of a Philly restaurant. They have a nice selection. They're pricing is a little high I feel considering it's more of a local place. But everything is delicious! They have great martini's. The shrimp cocktail is wonderful. I've had a few of their steaks and they were all good. I really like the waitstaff, they are always friendly and seem to do a good job of making you feel like VIP's!

    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.

    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.

    Dined on 3/8/2014
    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!

    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...

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.
