Service was fine. Overpriced for what it is. The filet I ordered medium plus and was dry and salty. The sides (mushrooms and creamed spinach) were subpar at best. The mushrooms tasted like they were bathed in salt. The drinks? Charged 36$ for a glass of Cabernet that was no more than 2-3 oz in volume. Awful food. Please save your date nights/celebrations for another location.

LOVED IT. One of the best meals ever. The NY Strip Steak was to die for along with each and every side -- we ordered one of each. The shoestring onions are a must!

This was by far the best restaurant we have ever been to, and the absolutely BEST steak. We had the American wagyu ribeye cap and American wagyu filet mingon. Mashed potatoes were so smooth and everything including our service was SO good. Will definitely be back.

Outstanding 19th anniversary dinner, because of Christopher’s attentive, yet relaxed and un rushed service.
Over the years we’ve continued to book Barclay Prime. It’s always worth the drive in from out of town for one of our favorite, consistently excellent meals in Philadelphia. On this occasion however, we were even more pleased than usual, because our special meal was complimented by a perfectly paced service, thanks to Christopher!

While Barclay Prime is expensive, it was worth every penny. From the moment we got there the service was amazing. Our server was knowledgeable and offered great insight into the menu. The BP Manhattan was by far the best cocktail I have ever had. I got the American Wagyu rib eye cap and was amazing. My only disappointment is that it is a bit out of our budget to go to frequently but we will be back for our next special occasion.

Service was excellent. Really hard to give an accurate review because we were seated outside and it was one of the coldest nights of the year. It was very cold inside our enclosed dining area, despite the heaters.

It was my milestone birthday and we had requested a seat inside-and as we arrived and waited, for quite a bit, a fast-moving rather nasty seeming woman took us to a 2nd to last booth (far away) table and said "you have a 90 minute time limit" (How inviting on my 60th birthday-right?)
My friend brought a cake-(I have OFTEN brought a birthday cake and never been charged) but on this night, in front of the birthday girl (me), when my friend said, "we have a cake, can you put a candle in it?" the waiter said "let me check because of COVID...) and returned saying "we can do it, but there's an $8 "plate fee" (Mind you, they brought the dessert-with just one plate-none for him! And $8 protects you against COVID? What am I missing here?)
Last-it was freezing and the 5 star restaurant had small heaters and no blankets. Every restaurant of this scale that Ive ever been to has blankets on hand-nope. (I kept my mouth shut because my friend hates a fuss, but the service was poor-heater went out) Food was good-but we should have been inside for my 60th birthday. Delicious steak but the service was remarkably disgusting and distasteful.

Barclay Prime was absolutely AWESOME and exceeded our expectations in every way. From Greg the manager checking on us to make sure we were enjoying our evening, to our waiter and staff, it was a wonderful experience and I have nothing but great things to say. Our meal of course was a 10 as I'd expect nothing less from the chefs at Prime, and we simply cannot wait to visit again. Thank you for providing my wife and I with some normalcy and a 5 star experience during this challenging time. Cheers!

haven’t been at restaurants in the pandemic, so the food tasted incredibly salty. A reminder of what has been unhealthy in our society for so long. But otherwise it was lovely and enjoyable.
