40 day dry aged ribeye came out cold and undercooked. Food service was very slow, it took us 2.5 hours just to get through the meal because of slow service. 30 minutes for a wagyu tartare appetizer, another 25-30 mins for our steak and fish with truffle mac and creamed corn, and another 30 mins for dessert. I had very high expectations for Barclay Prime, as I had been wanting to go for 3 years.

Dined at Barclay Prime to celebrate an award at work. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and had great recommendations. I had the scallops and crab cakes and they were delish. Can’t wait to go back!

We celebrated my boyfriends birthday. Everything was amazing- however, they didn’t bring out a little dessert with a candle for his birthday while several groups around us had the same done for them. I assumed it was a complimentary thing, but I guess not.

Service interminably long, perhaps not enough servers? We were there for almost three hours. The wait times between courses was ridiculously long.

Amazing meal - the best I’ve ever had. I would not do justice if I described it, but I’ll try. The filet melted in my mouth like butter. The asparagus, creamed spinach, sautéed mushrooms and whipped potatoes were delicious. And the rolls! Devine! Drew was our server and he was the most professional and charming individual.. The experience was top-notch. Thank you!

The staff was friendly and attentive but not overbearing from the moment we arrived to when we left.

The warm popovers were exquisite. Did not need the butter that came on the side as they were so airy and full of flavor.

The hamachi crudo was outstanding. Simple, yet complex flavors, especially the citrus flavors. The tuna tartare was excellent and prepared perfectly.

Our steaks (one filet and one NY strip) were cooked exactly as ordered and just outstanding.

While the mushrooms were good, we felt that they were over buttered and over salted unnecessarily. I suspect some like it this way but it just did not need it.

We were so stuffed that we could not have desert but greatly appreciated the complimentary glasses of champagne to finish the meal.

All in all, an outstanding meal. We just relocated from NY and have been to many great steakhouse. We will definitely be back.

It’s been way to long since I’ve been at Barclay Prime….way to long. Barclay Prime is at the top with every other restaurant looking up at it….besides the food being the best around which is stating the obvious….the wait staff is even better….whatever Stephen Starr did here will never b duplicated….5 stars is not enough! And don’t let me forget about the hostess…..the bartenders….the managers….damn it i can’t forget about the cooks, food runners…any one else? Well done crew!
