Service was great! Our waiter Andrew was phenomenal!
Waitress was outstanding with recommendations and service. Very quick and clean, food was delicious and perfectly cooked. Definitely going back soon!
The most amazing experience! Friendly and welcoming staff and incredible food. Comfy chairs and lovely ambiance!
The cheesesteak was amazing and worth every penny!!! Our waitress Erin was the best!
Great food and ambience although, the wait for our meals was over 45minutes. Overall the server was amazing, drinks were on point, and bread was amazing. I would definitely revisit.
Good as always.
We loved Barclay Prime. We tried three different steaks and all were cooked perfectly and delicious examples of Japanese Wagyu and American Beef. Sides were plentiful and the dessert selection was appealing and a good way to end the meal.
Where the restaurant falls short is the ambience. It is quite dark, the AC runs at a frigid temp and the noise level is unpleasant as the tables fill.
Our waiter Jackson was phenomenal. My husband ordered the lobster which was cooked perfectly, it is usually over cooked, and I ordered the 10 ounce filet. They were able to split the fillet for us as we both wanted to have surf and turf. The cream spinach was the best I’ve ever had and we have been to many steakhouses including capital grill Ruth’s Chris Davio’s etc..The lighting was perfect and we did not feel rushed at all. The steak carpaccio was excellent. We will definitely visit again soon!
I love Barclay prime, the service and the food is outstanding. Our waiter Glen was really nice and funny too.
The service and appetizers were amazing! I had to give a low score on the steak because it was burnt on the outside. This was the case for a medium and medium well $65 prime rib. It was disappointing that for the price the actual steak could be so bad.
AMAZING FOOD and loved our waiter!
The food and cocktails were excellent. My husband loves steak; I’m a vegetarian. We both left happy. He said the olive beef wagyu was truly unique. And I must say, that truffle Mac n cheese, the Kennet Square mushrooms, and the desserts — all three that I got!!— were fantastic.
Our server, Glenn, made sure everything was exactly as we wanted. He was attentive but not obtrusive, and made excellent recommendations based on what we were looking for in terms of taste, texture, etc.
First ones seated at this fine restaurant I’ve enjoyed more than once in the last 14 years. Our server this evening was Glenn who took fantastic care and left no detail to chance.
Popovers were extraordinary. We had the crab cake and seared Diver scallops which were better than I’d hoped.
The filet Mignon was perfectly done and the New York strip delightful. I always order as the chef would recommend, because hey, they went to cooking school, not me. They didn’t only go, but they clearly excelled!
Our sides were the truffle Mac and cheese. Rich and had the added crunch that makes it so satisfying along with the onions.
Finished off with a Banana Creme Brûlée .
Never feel let down at the end of a great meal, go here and enjoy!
Our server made our experience better than I could’ve imagined! Everything about this place was over the top amazing, and I can’t wait to be back!
First, I want to start off by saying that we LOVE Barclay Prime. We are frequent customers and constantly tell everyone how great it is. Our dinner last night was not what we normally experience at Barclay Prime. Both my steak and my husbands steaks were overcooked. My husbands second cocktail was watered down and not good.
Management went above and beyond after the waitress noticed that my husbands steak was overcooked. I didn't report my steak or the poor cocktail because I felt really bad at that point. They truly tried their best to make it work for us. Not sure if it was on off night, as this is not what we normally experience.
Although we were very disappointed with our entrees, the service was top notch!
Tonight was my son’s Grlfriends prom and Barclay Prime saved the night!!! From incredible ambiance to impeccable food and outstanding service they walked out smiling ear to ear! Can’t wait to eat here again…..THANKU
We had dinner here to celebrate my husbands birthday and we were very disappointed in the steaks. These are suppose to be rare and special types of steaks and we were very underwhelmed when we received our order. We ordered the American Wagyu NY strip steak ($105) and the Kobe ($200). The steaks were extremely burnt on the outside, not tender, no taste or flavor and the kobe was essentially just eating 4 mini slices of fat. For the price and quality of these steaks we were expecting them to taste different or above average; however, they were not tasty and definitely not specials. We have been to many steakhouses in the city and had far better experiences. However, our waiter was extremely kind and the manager was very nice and they were both very understanding and accommodating and agreed to remove these items from our bill. We are really appreciative of the service we were provided. This review is nothing against Barclays, in general but more so to inform others of our experience and to emphasize that you should understand exactly what you are ordering before ordering. As it turns out, the price did not equate to a superb dining experience as one would think.
Great food, service, and attention. We ate outside and it was wonderful!
Wonderful! Best steak in Philly
I went to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday which I indicated on the reservation. Server was pleasant but just mediocre and for the prices one would expect a bit more from the staff. They never acknowledged me celebrating my birthday which was the main reason for the visit. The food was just ok nothing that would make me come back. After the she brought us the check she goes to the table across from us and sings happy birthday to another party. How ironic is this!?? I guess we weren’t the right color to get a happy birthday acknowledgement. I will never come to this place again or recommend it to anyone. For $300 plus this was such a disappointment. Clearly they don’t want people of color in this establishment..and it shows.
Excellent food, excellent service, beautiful ambiance and best cocktails... a little pricey but worth it for a special night out. Outdoor dining there felt very comfortable/safe from a covid perspective as well.
Food was amazing. Service was phenomenal. Tara was our waitress and was on point the entire time. She was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and overall was a great waitress. Love the atmosphere. Highly recommend.
It was a stupendous time, the service and atmosphere were great. Our server was wonderfully helpful and the food was delicious.
Amazing food and drinks
Outstanding atmosphere and service
It was my birthday and want a fabulous meal the Barkley Prime didn’t disappoint!!
Always have a great dinner at the Barclay prime
Filet mignon was so delicious as was the NY strip. Probably the best steaks we’ve ever had. My husband and I shared the shoestring onions, green beans and whipped potatoes. The potatoes were so good. Could eat those everyday! My only small complaint was the music. It felt “off” for the ambiance.
Food was delicious and the service was awesome. I did outside seating which was cute with the chandelier. A lot of dog walking I guess because it was located on the side street.
Had the olive beef. It was amazing! Fresh tater tots were best I’ve ever had. Everything from service, execution, flavor, textures. Everything exceeded my expectations from a steakhouse. I usually see them as boring and monotonous. But Barclay Prime is way above the rest! Will definitely be back next time I’m in Philly!
Lounge seating for 6. Excellent service! The table ordered martinis, Manhattans, Pinot noir, steaks, fish, wagyu sliders, and sides - everything was perfect. The staff gave wonderful drink recommendations, were engaging, and attentive.
Mat was amazing!! So informative and just made the evening awesome!!
Our waitress was fantastic and the food as always was fabulous!!!
Everything was great, but food didn’t differentiate from other steakhouses.
Chris, was our server/host and completely amazing. His recommendations were perfect and we had another wonderful dinner!!!
As always, a great meal!
Delightful! Incredible meal and wonderful service as always. Thank you for a great birthday celebration for my spouse’s birthday!
50th birthday celebration + Anniversary dinner. An incredible night start to finish. We loved the open air banquette & the private dining experience that setting offered. The cocktails, wine, food & service were top notch! We enjoyed every minute! Can’t wait to be back!
