Had to wait 1/2 an hour past our reservation for table.
Waiter was excellent.

Ordered kobe sliders and found some foreign object in my food ( wood ?). Waiter was very apologetic and we received a fresh order, no charge.

The food was perfect and the server knew the menu and helped tremendously. The room was way too dark to see the menu or the people sitting across from you. It was also loud.

While we loved everything we had the service was not good they forgot a couple of things for us and seemed more interested in helping larger tables than ours. It was a shame as we loved the food and the environment

A very good steak but nothing special compared to other top of the line steakhouses. Dark, lots of wood which I liked. I believe double retail is appropriate for bottles of wine , I think they were maybe a little high. We went for pleasure but a good place for an expense account.

Perhaps the best service in Philadelphia. Staff remembers your name, they provide you precisely the right amount of attention. Not all over you, but there when you need or want them. The food is prepared exactly right. My steak is always prepared exactly as ordered.

My boyfriend and I celebrates both of our birthdays at Barclay prime on 5/11/19. The ambiance was dark and dim but very sophisticated. The vibe was certainly a fine dining atmosphere as soon as you walk-in.The food was fresh and delicious. We ordered the Alaskan king crab as an appetizer, the portion was very small, and certainly not enough for two people to share. Nonetheless the crab was very fresh and came with a tasty cocktail sauce. The bread was fresh and enjoyable. The waitress was very pleasant and helped us decided on what to order for our main courses. However, our main course meals took about 45mins to arrive. I ordered the 12oz filet, medium well. My date ordered the Waygu cheesesteak which he enjoyed and raved about the rest of the night. We ordered two sides, broccoli and truffle MAC. The MAC was enough for two to share, how we the broccoli was not. Overall, the experience was good and I would certainly dine at Barclays again, but only for a special occasion.

The food was great, service was wonderful but the noise level was extremely loud I felt like to talk to my date across the table I had to speak loud or sometimes I couldn't hear her so everything else was fine but it more of a chill spot for friends not and not so much for soft spoken conversations

Birthday. Very nice. Popovers are perfect, served warm with a crispy crust. Wagyu beef and Chilean sea bass cook led and presented beautifully. Drinks were delicious. It was very thoughtful for our server to bring out a slice of birthday cake. The only thing I didn’t think was spectacular was the mashed potatoes, nothing special, I like mine whipped fluffy and these seemed stiff and not very tasty.

Disappointing. I ordered a $63.00 entree (sole) and my husband ordered a steak. My husband had to send steak back to kitchen as it was undercooked. No problem, this is not uncommon for steak. However, we had to ask the waitress to take my fish back to the kitchen to keep it warm so that we would not be eating separately. Waitress had attitude we which we did not appreciate. She did not take our side dish (cauliflower) back. It took an additional 10-15 minutes, which was fine, however, the vegetables were ice cold.

Waitress was not very nice, except when she gave us our check! For a restaurant at this caliber, the wait staff should know that people do not want to eat in shifts, especially if it is a special occasion, which it was for us. Off the list.

Our first visit, celebrating my adult son's birthday. Four of us at the table, and the food was great. Three filet were perfectly cooked, as was the salmon. Apps included the hamachi and lobster bisque. Also tried their tater tots, mashed potatoes, Mac & cheese and mushroom sides. My wife says the mixed mushrooms side was the best she has ever had. Desserts included creme brûlée and the ice cream selection, all well done. They also brought out a small cake slice with a candle for my son (nice touch). Will definitely be back.
