THE ONLY THING THAT KEEPS US FROM GIVING A 5 STAR RATING WAS THE BAR SERVICE. AFTER WATCHING WAITER WALK BY TO OTHER TABLES FOR 15 MINUTES, I HAD TO ASK HOW TO GET A DRINK. THE EXCUSE WAS THAT THEY THOUGHT I WAS WAITING FOR SOMEONE WHICH I WAS, BUT I WAS GOING TO WAIT WITH A DRINK WHICH I WAS NEVER OFFERED. NOT UP TO BARCLAY PRINE STANDARDS.

Overall, a very nice and unique restaurant. Perfect ambience for a special night out. However, it is very expensive and quite honestly, given the hype and reviews, the food was just average.

As a Butcher and Singer regular, I decided to snap up a reservation at BP. BP has a NYC/ Miami vibe as opposed to an old school east coast chop house which is what Butcher and Singer is. Both are excellent. Both have their niche. You can’t go wrong with either.

Personally, I appreciate the old school vibe and the Porterhouse for 1 at Butcher and Singer which is a Top 5 steak in my travels (Peter Lugars, Gallagher’s, Keens, Charley’s in Tampa). However, you do not have to coerce me to have a steak at either establishment.

Perfect. In every possible way. From the attentive service to the phenomenal food, this continues to be the best place in Rittenhouse.

Overpriced. Their selections of sparkling wine are very limited. The attendants around their reception/cloak area and the waiting area are not that friendly. If you like basic meat food, this is a good place to go.

Everything was top notch. Had an 8:00 reservation, walked in and was seated promptly. Our waiter, Glenn, may have been the best waiter we have ever had! Food was oustanding

Barclay Prime is a modern take on classic steakhouse. It's top attribute is probably its setting. The Steaks are good, the sides are good, the service is unctuous. It's got most of what you are looking for. Check size is 85th percentile. Value is similar.

Lobster bisque was DELICIOUS! Tuna tartar was so fresh! Really great 8 oz filet and 20 oz ribeye! Don’t pass up trying a dessert! Definitely would recommend!

Everything was good! The room was very dark I could barely see but I guess it added to the ambiance. They could be more forthcoming with the bread and paper napkins!

The cheese popovers are outstanding!! When I asked how they were made, they gave me the recipe! As always, the steak melts in your mouth!! It was my birthday and they surprised me with cake!! We also tried the bananas creme brulee desert and it was light n decadent! Everything at Barclay Prime just melts in your mouth!

Went in on a random Sunday evening. Beautiful space but there was absolutely no one there. I believe by the time we did finish dinner another four tables had bodies in them. But that and the level of music just made it kind of “not fun” - too quiet

We will definitely try to go back on a Friday or Saturday - maybe there will be more people there.

Overall food was good but nothing that was insanely prepared or unique for the price point. I had the branzino and my friend had a filet mignon - traditional american cuisine. Service was fantastic. Server knew the information well and was attentive. We will be back.

Great service, pleasing and accommodating. Helpful and generous with time and attention. It was enjoyable. Although it is expensive, I feel lives it up to the value and experience. We shared the porterhouse and it was the best steak I have had in the city. Glenn was our server and really made us comfortable.

Very pricey but we loved it. The Caesar salad is the best in Philadelphia. The ribeye was perfect! The mushroom side dish is not to be missed. Our server, Jessica, was fun yet professional. Overall, a perfect night.

Have not been to Barclay Prime for awhile as we live in western suburbs. What a great restaurant. The ambiance, the staff, the food all great.

We had the Dover sole which was perfect, along with potatoes and champagne.

Highly recommended.

I love Barclay Prime! The staff is excellent, and the Assistant GM, Alex, always stops by to give me a very warm welcome. I was Assistant Manager at what used to be The Barclay Hotel thirty years ago. I always have to return to Barclay Prime for birthdays, special events, or just when I need to treat myself to a fabulous dining experience.

We had an incredible experience at Barclay Prime. Every dish we ordered was delicious. The waitress was so attentive and wonderful. We couldn’t have asked for more. We will absolutely return. After living in NYC as a foodie for 15 years, it is not easy to impress me. I was totally impressed.
