So amazing. Brought my boyfriend here as a surprise & asked ahead of time to order the cheesesteak for him so he'd be extra surprised. The waiter was already on it & the cheesesteak came out shortly after we sat. He was so surprised, the sides were delicious, and I had the roasted chicken which was also real good. Best waiter & so worth driving 2 hours & spending that much money.

We went to Barclay Prime for our 4th wedding anniversary. Our waiter, I believe his name is Alan, was great. Extremely knowledgeable and courteous. The food was delicious. My only complaint was the lobster bisque. Usually the lobster bisque is one of my favorites but this night the taste was off. However, when I expressed that I just wasn't a fan, Alan took it right off our bill which was great.

Also, they gave us a gorgeous desert with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate. It was very nice.

Everything we had was phenomenal. We had James as our waiter and he went above and beyond the normal service we are used to getting anywhere. The strip was perfectly cooked as was the chicken. They went out of their way to make sure we were satisfied. When we first sat down we were told it was about a forty minute wait for food and that was almost dead on for the wait, it was actually about 38. We had time for great conversation and relaxing. I highly recommend the s’mores creme brûlée. I also recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone who enjoys not good but, great food. I can’t say enough about it. This is a must try for everyone!

This was probably the best place we have ever eaten. Everything was perfect, but the scallops were really outstanding. The dessert was also wonderful, with many small touches creating a delicious ending to the meal. Highly recommended.

Absolutely amazing ambiance. The food there was absolutely unreal. We started with the scallops which were small, but crazy tasty. My girlfriend had the NY Strip and I had the prime rib and both were cooked absolutely to perfection. I always get my steaks rare, but the waiter suggested that due to the cut of the meat I got medium-rare and it was such a money decision. I would highly recommend asking the waiter what you should get your steak cooked at.

Desert was something to be desired, but the steaks and the sides (cream spinach, mushrooms, and truffel mac and cheese) were the highlight of the evening.

its going to run you around 250 - 500 so be prepared to drop some cash. But overall one of the best steak experiences that Ive ever had.

We saw this restaurant featured on television for one of its dishes and decided to try it. We went for New Years Eve. I chose this restaurant for my birthday this month as well. It is now my new favorite restaurant!

This was my second time at Barclay Prime and it did not disappoint. This is the best steak in the city, possibly the best food in the city. Period. The staff makes you feel like royalty and you will not leave there feeling otherwise.

We had the best experience here! It’s such a cool space and the atmosphere/ambiance are amazing. We had dinner with our 10 month old daughter and they were very accommodating with setting up a high hair and getting us what we needed. The food was EXCELLENT! A philly must for sure!

I remember first going to the Barclay Prime years ago and it was a great experience. Since then I have gone a few other times also good experiences. It has been two years since my last visit and I live two doors down but I have heard of some issues with service lately. I had some friends come in from outa town and thought that this would have been a great time and opportunity to check things out. I choose a Wednesday as I know that midweek is a good time to get not only the food but the service as the restaurant was busy but not full.

The Good: The atmosphere is great, the food is good and the hostesses are on point and always friendly and attentive. When you call they are pleasant and accommodating.

The Bad: The service and the Sommelier. I order a $185.00 bottle of wine and ordered it from the Sommelier and discussed that it was a wine to be decanted. The wine came, he opened it and poured it for me to taste and then poured the others. When he came back to fill mine he spilled a little bit on the table. Not a big deal, but not something you expect at this level. Secondly he never decentered the wine. As far as our waiter, he simply did not appear that he wanted to be there that night. Trying to get our drinks before dinner was challenging and getting his attention during the evening was a daunting task. One of the signature items of this restaurant is their selection of knives to use for your dinning experience. When the waiter came by with the knives he simply showed up with the box and said select one. I asked him about Porsche knife he said he have. I then had to ask him to explain the ones he did have.

There are plenty of good steak houses within five blocks of Barclay Prime... I suggest trying them out as well when paying $50.00 for a steak. This not to say I wont go back, but when you have a bad service experience on a Wednesday night with guests, it leaves a "bad taste".

Had a great evening at Barclay Prime. My wife’s filet was a bit “off”. It had terrific flavor and was cooked to perfection, but the texture of the filet was a touch tough/stringy. We mentioned it to the waiter & the manager came right over to our table and told us the filet had been removed from our bill, even though she had eaten more than half of the filet. Amazing customer service!!! We would absolutely go back.
