Steaks are always fabulous here. Ambiance is great as well. Pricey so it’s not a place I’d go to unless I was celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Everyone around us was celebrating something.

Husbands birthday celebration, nice table for 4. Everyone ordered the 8oz filet...delicious! Our sides were also quite good, mashed potatoes, truffle mac n cheese, mushrooms and creamed spinach. Also had wine, desserts and espresso. Service and atmosphere were excellent. This was our first time dining at Barclay Prime, we will definitely come back again.

Dinner was great as usual. great cocktails. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Still one of favorites when we are in town. Our server however was cold and aloof with a slight attitude. We assumed they were having a bad day and laughed it off, but hope we don't get them on our next visit.

The food was excellent. We had the Wagyu a5 filet. It was the best steak I've ever tasted. It was done exactly as ordered. Very tender and flavorful. The popovers were also very good. The service was excellent. All of our waitstaff were attentive without being overbearing. It's certainly pricey (as steakhouses usually are), but you feel like you got what you paid for. I would definitely recommend it, especially for a special occasion or celebration.

Recently spent an anniversary in Barclay Prime. The staff was friendly. Our waiter at Mat was very knowledgable of the menu and friendly. He added a twist of his quirky humor which added some enjoyable entertainment to our dining experience. The steak are high quality. We ordered the rib-eye and my wife got the bone-in filet mignon cooked medium rare and it came out perfect. The Manhattan signature drink was very strong but enjoyable. I enjoyed the drink so much I ordered a second one. I would def come back if ever we are in the Rittenhouse Square area again.

Glenn was amazing, we were in town for a job interview they made us feel as if we were family. The service staff worked in unison to provide a flawless experience ontop of the food coming out perfectly. If we end up moving to philly we will be returning to see Glenn and the rest of the staff at Barclay Prime

Eh. Been here a few times now. Simply overpriced for the food quality and atmosphere. Steak was good, but tasted like it was basted with movie theater popcorn butter. At this price point, you expect great...not good. Not much "special" about it.

I would like to love this venue, however this was the meal that determined it is not for me. The dining room is lovely. The waitstaff is well trained. You are greeted and seated. We did not appreciate the "upsell" by the waiter. If we wanted truffles or Wagyu steak.... we would have asked for it. The popovers are what brought me back. However, the steak... filet mignon... has a taste - a flavor that is unique and I do not mean in a good way. I took one bite and then another and it was the same (odd) flavor I experienced last time I dined there. The steak was packed to go. The chopped salad was great. Of course, the location next to the park will insure patrons. There are too many other steak houses that are superior.

Frankly, it is a totally DISASTER and WORST experience during my lifetime up to now. Start from service, the server forgot to bring me oyster fork when the oysters were on table; bread was put in the area out of reach;gave dishes to the wrong person...and most unacceptable, I ordered a Japanese filet with medium rare,but they gave me a normal filet which tasted like nearly well done! No juicy at all and it feels like I am eating Jack Link's with steam!!!The lamb is totally OVERCOOKED!Very bitter taste in the middle and when I complained to the server, he said, it should like this because we use fire to cook. Are you kidding me? I have tried nearly all the top steak houses in the US, from Knife in Dallas to St.Elmo in Indianapolis, it is out of professional. If I spent only 30 dollars for a USDA choice steak, I am sure it would be much better. Ironically, the only good thing is the fancy selections of steak knives for you to choose, from Japan to Europe. In one word, this steak house is recommended if you come for a steak knife.

Don't be afraid to share the sides as they are enough for two. our server was courteous, attentive and knowledgeable. The timing of the food coming out was perfect, with enough time to eat and digest before the next course comes out. Great experience all round.
