The Prime Rib
Where the insiders goThe Prime Rib is a very special restaurant in Philadelphia for food and ambiance .
It is quiet elegant dining with a live piano player and an active bar.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe most tender Prime RibJust wonderful! We frequently share the regular cut prime rib and get a veggie platter. This is a great deal as they give you a succulent broiled tomato in addition to your choice of any three veggies they have as sides. As far as I can tell those portions are the same as if you order sides. We always have left overs enough for a second dinner.
The food is excellent, service gracious and atmosphere sophisticated and romantic with a pianist playing the great oldies.
Drinks are great and the best Long Island Ice tea ever.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined there beforeWe have dined there before and have always had an excellent experience. Staff is wonderful and food was fantastic. We were there at a very crowded evening but the staff handled the work load effortlessly. Always a great go to place for a quiet romantic dinner!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA Lovely Dining ExperienceLovely place to go for a great meal. Romantic atmosphere, piano music, all with plenty of space between tables so you never feel crowded. I have been there several times before, and it is consistantly good. This time I went for a pre-theatre, prix fixed dinner and it was perfect. Portions were adequate, while not as large as the regular menu, (which was what we wanted) it was moist enjoyable. It is a little pricey, and the drinks and wine certainly add to the bill. Some of my companions did not drink anything because of this. However, if you want to go for a special evening with lovely ambience, or don't mind spending a little more for an evening out, I reccommend the Prime Rib. It is well worth it.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOld standardDining in class. Good food , great atmosphere, good feeling.

A very expensive meal as everything is a la carte, but for a special occasion. It was great. The best meal of our stay in Philadellphia. Great blue cheese dressing and artichokes, also.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA rare find trhese days: LiveA rare find trhese days: Live piano music , you can actually hear your diner companion speak. Excellent food & service. A shame it is too expensive to go to more often.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI like their BYOB nights.I like their BYOB nights. The only place I've found that still serves prime rib.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AM"2nd time a charm"My wife and I enjoyed our second visit to The Prime Rib. We enjoyed the best seat in the house and the food was outstanding. We will return again ASAP. This is how a restaurant should be for a night out. Outstanding selection of Neal Family wines at very nice prices. The piano and bass player add to the overall class of the place.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always have great serviceWe always have great service and great food. Best steak house in town!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful eveningThis is a restaurant that makes me feel like I ate elegantly and unhurriedly.
The waiter was outstanding, the prices were high, and the food was very good.
Enough prime rib to take home for another meal.
Piano playing through the meal was wonderful, and the Tito's vodka was fabulous.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious! Excellent service!Delicious! Excellent service! I love the new pianist; nice soft relaxing music to go with dinner.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took friends to this specialWe took friends to this special restaurant. They also thought the Prime rib was outstanding. Best we have ever had. Now this is their special restaurant too.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Prime Rib's prime ribThe Prime Rib's prime rib is really excellent. The whole atmosphere is a throwback to a gentler time when dining was dining. The "extras" - potato skins, creamed spinach - are also excellent. The service is first class. It's real treat to dine there.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMwe love the prime rib. unfortunatelwe love the prime rib. unfortunately the portions are decreasing while the prices remain the same. our king cut prime rib with bone was 1/2 the size it usually is and the vegetable platter was honestly A JOKE for $26 or $28 [whichever it was]. we did speak with the GM, as our waiter had also erroneously charged us for the potato [which was supposed to come with the vegetable platter]. he was nice, and the waiter certainly tried hard.
the OLD ways of the prime rib [with jacket] and way larger portions was honestly much better. while we love the combo band, we'll have to see if they improve things to see if we'll continue to come here regularly.
hopefully our next visit will be much better in terms of the aforementioned.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good. Can't goConsistently good. Can't go wrong with the Prix Fixe menu for $45.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Prime RibMost outstanding prime rib you'll ever have!! Sides are good too. Definitely worth the price. Get their signature cut.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were uniformly excellent. Wait staff were attentive without hovering, allowing us to enjoy our meal and each other's company without a single worry about the service. The filet mignon was the highlight; it was so tender I could almost cut it with my fork. Prices were the only drawback; this is a place either for very special occasions or people who entertain clients on the company's dime. Given the right occasion or a healthy expense account, I would return with pleasure.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial night.Fabulous prime rib. Service was perfect. See many of my neighbors there. Love it. Wish it was open for lunch.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion place of choiceRecently went to Prime Rib for our anniversary. We have always enjoyed it for special occasions - the menu rarely changes but what is there is fantastic. We've eaten in all the Philly steakhouses but I've never had a steak as good as the Prime Rib. Love the full old school service as well. A real gem.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the food Love our serviceLove the food

I wish that they had steak tartare or better steaks but the Prime Rib is the winner here. The crab cakes are stellar as well.
The staff is always great with our family and very professional and friendly. Thanks for the potato skins as well!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTo Andrea, Andrea as I mentionedTo Andrea, Andrea as I mentioned to you in a previous e-mail The Prime Rib is our favorite resturant in Philadelphia. My wife truly loved the Rack of Lamb and our waiter did bring the mango chutney. We will see you on our next visit in September.
Mark Stankiewicz3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Prime Rib is always aThe Prime Rib is always a treat to visit. I love the fact that they have a piano player and when he sings, if you close your eyes, you would swear you were listening to Tony Bennett live. He's that good. I always feel special when I eat there and the staff is warm and friendly. It has an almost club-like atmosphere with dark wood and banquette seating. Order the prime rib because it is just outstanding. Expensive but well worth the price.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. Some of theExcellent food.

Chilean sea bass and filet.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMlove everything about thelove everything about the prime rib -- from food to service, top rate~ we'll be back3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid 4 out of 5 stars ...A solid four out of five stars from this reviewer. Yes, pricey, but you know that going in. Big props for their "twenty under forty" (which has graduated to fifty), but they offer a pleasant selection of twenty wines under $50 which have $20-$35 retail price points - providing one of the most fair wine offerings in the city. Food, presentation and service sparkle and the wait staff knows and appreciates the difference between proper attention and the infamous disappearing act.
Treated to a first class steak and on this night. The seafood options were a very pleasant option too (though when in Rome ...) The side dishes are appropriately sized as opposed to those ridiculous portions you see in chain steak restaurants.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMfabulous AS ALWAYS! Greatfabulous AS ALWAYS! Great service, food was wonderful, and the entire experience was especially terrific for celebrating my husband's birthday! We will surely be back!12/15/2012 12:00:00 AMIt's always a delight to enjoyIt's always a delight to enjoy a fantastic lunch at The Prime Rib during the two weeks they are open for lunch - the two weeks just before Christmas. The food and service are impeccable. Do yourself a favor and go!12/14/2012 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed a delicious hamburgerEnjoyed a delicious hamburger with white cheddar cheese with a side of French fries and coleslaw for lunch. The Prime Rib is offering lunch for a limited 2-week period which ends Friday, December 21. The burger and fries arrived hot and the burger was juicy. A basket of warm bread rolls with soft butter was also provided. Our server James, with his assistant, did an excellent job. Adding to the ambiance was the live pianist.12/13/2012 12:00:00 AM
