The food was delicious and service was outstanding. Nice atmosphere and great music in the background. We got there very late the other night due to a family member in the nearby hospital and we were treated wonderful and they didn’t rush us or make us feel like we were imposing. It was a wonderful dinner, will be back...

From the second we checked in for our reservation to the time we left, each and every staff member was absolutely lovely and attentive. We will definitely be dining here again next time we’re in Philadelphia. The decor is beautiful. It’s romantic though a bit noisy, but, the seating is plush and the noise didn’t bother us at all.

The overall steak quality dropped a tad. I'm hoping this was a one time slip as I loved this restaurant.

The service was excellent from the moment we stepped in the door. From the Hostess, to the bar/lounge server and our dining server. The food was just as good as everything was cooked to perfection as asked. I have the Wagyu from Japan (A5) and it did not disappoint at all. They even brought out a slice of cake for my parents as part of the dessert that read Happy 50th Anniversary, which I had noted on the Open Table reservation when I made it. I cannot wait until the next time I can revisit!

Amazing steaks, amazing cocktails, incredible whipped potatoes, the only thing that wasn’t our style was the lighting. It is just so dark in there! But our experience was lovely

Went here to celebrate my boyfriend passing the PA Bar Exam. The service was beyond excellent and the steak has ruined steak for us, it was so good. Great place to splurge and celebrate the culmination of his hard work!

My wife and I went to Barclay Prime for our anniversary and the food and service were amazing. We had the filet, potato gratin, and brussel sprouts. Our steaks were perfectly seasoned and cooked. The sides were great too. The sommelier made a perfect recommendation. We highly recommend Barclay Prime!

Amazing Steakhouse from Stephen Starr with a great interior, classic steaks and a few surprises thrown in. The delecata squash special was amazing and the desserts are well worth saving room for. The steak was well cooked and there was an extensive wine and cocktail menu. Definitely a great spot in Rittenhosue Square.

We sat in the lounge and loved it. It was quiet and our service was excellent. The wagyu filet was probably the best steak I have ever had in my life. The cocktails were delicious, as well. Thanks again to Pavel for taking such good care of me and my husband on our honeymoon!

Excellent server but the meal itself was very average. And when you are throwing down $300 plus for just myself and my husband I would have expected top notch food. We have eaten at so many excellent restaurants in Philly for a way better price tag. We will not be back.
(Also, so dark you could hardly see where you are walking. I am only 30 years old so can't blame that on old eyes )

Not as good as it used to be. We come from out of town to eat year as it is our favorite restaurant and it has been 2 years since our last visit. My steak was not hot and they did not properly season the steak. Typically my plate is also warm and this time it was cold I think they were waiting on my husbands steak since it was larger and mine was done too quickly. I saw a lot of food being sent back that night. Also, it was our anniversary and it was not acknowledged.

Probably the best service I’ve ever had, they were on top of every need and so polite. Food was amazing as well. Great atmosphere. I’ve heard Barclay Prime is on the noisy side, however it didn’t affect my rating. Thanks!

Celebrating my partner’s birthday weekend. We always enjoy coming here for our birthdays and anniversaries. Great to see Glenn again as our waiter. Always cordial, friendly and always make us feel at home. Also, by recommendation from a friend at the hotel we were staying close by was to ask for Alexander. He too was cordial and friendly and asked if we needed anything to make our meal special. They always pull out all the stops to make us feel great. The food is spectacular. My steak was cooked to perfection and couldn’t stop raving about it. I only went for the house sauce once. Thank you again to all of the staff at Barclay Prime and will be returning soon, maybe next month. :)

From top to bottom food and service were excellent. Greeted properly, and service was outstanding. She had a bubbly attitude and throughly knew the menu and preparation. The only off putting thing was being questioned about a special occasion by floor manager and server. It felt like we were being judged because we were the youngest in the room.

Jessica took great care of us. This is hands down the best steakhouse in Philly. Did BYO for first time with $35/btl corkage, may be the go to going forward. Already looking forward to my next visit.
