Everything from the popovers (way better than other steakhouses) to the sides (mushrooms are amazing) made this a standout experience. The Japanese Kobe is just amazing. We enjoy their cocktails as well.

I reserved a table for 2 for indoor dining. The seating was in the main dining area but still felt private and well-distanced from others. Our server was friendly and attentive but not over our shoulder the entire night. His recommendation for wine paired wonderfully with our steaks, which were generously portioned. The truffle macaroni and cheese was a divine side dish as well! A great restaurant for its price point.

Absolutely incredible experience. The food was beyond anything you’ll ever enjoy. The wine, champagne, and cocktails were all top of the line. Our server was a professional and handled our excitement and questions with great ease. Would recommend.

This was one of the best restaurants I have ever been to, and my husband and I love trying out fine dining places everywhere we go! The cheesesteak is worth every penny. It is absolutely amazing! They had a white truffle pasta special that was awesome as a side dish. My husband had the olive beef Japanese wagyu and it was the best steak we have ever tasted! Their drinks are awesome- try the metropolis! I would skip the lobster bisque- generous chunks of lobster, but the seafood taste was too overpowering in the soup itself. Our waiter was super attentive and very great! Really no complaints besides the fact that it was a little too dark inside which made it hard to read the menu without using the flashlight on my phone.. Will definitely be back!

This was our first time here. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. Let me tell you, the food was extraordinary. From the drinks, to the bread, to the soups and salads. Now, let's talk about the main course. We have been to some amazing restaurants in Philly and all around. This was hands down, the best steak we have ever had. Mmm Mmm Mmm. The truffled mac & cheese is to die for. Everything was priced well and the service was great. We will definitely be back!

We decided to dine at Barclay Prime for my boyfriend’s mother’s birthday. He wanted to take her somewhere special. The food, service and ambiance was exactly that. Even under the circumstances, covid guidelines were explained and covered well. We all enjoyed. I will definitely go back!

It was wonderful!! Food was great, my bf got the Japanese snow Waygu, can’t really justify the price of $165 for it, but we were celebrating our anniversary and it was delicious!! I love their bread, mix of a croissant and a piece of bread. I had the seabsss with butter lemon sauce. They were Gerry attention to detail due to my bf having a peanut allergy. I would definitely go there again!!

First time going there, the ambiance and the vibe of the restaurant was relaxing and felt fancy, which we loved. The service was great, though a bit on the slower slide. But we actually didn’t mind that at all because we are always on the rush of things so it was actually nice to enjoy ourselves between courses. Everything was delicious and superb, unfortunately the lobster was the only thing that didn’t wow me. Very bland, over powered with too much butter. I know that some people love that but it didn’t do it for me. Wish they would have added a bit more seasoning, like parsley paprika or something that brought out the flavor more and maybe paired the dish wish asparagus or something in that area to give the dish more of a stand out. It was rather bland. But all in all it was still a 5 star experience and definitely will be back.

The cheesesteak was amazing! I do think they should offer a different price without the champagne because it didn’t pair well with it. Also, the staff that was there that day blatantly ignored the stacked pile of unused dishes that me and my girlfriend left at the edge of the table. I literally had to tell one of the workers to take the plates away. Multiple times my waiter as well as other staff memebers kept walking by it.

We had to change our reservation time because we were coming from out of town and got in later than expected. They were really accommodating still. However, we weren’t able to sit in the main dining room which was one reason I picked this place. The lobby/bar seating was still very nice. It was still a very intimate and romantic setting. I was very impressed with our server although she acknowledged that we were there for my fiancé birthday. He had the 16oz ribeye and I had the rack of lamb both were delicious and perfectly portioned. The whipped potatoes however could’ve been been better. I mean yes it’s just mashed potatoes but I expected better they were flavorless. We used the salted butter they brought with the bread made them 100 times better! Even the bread at the beginning of the meal was unexpectedly delicious! After dinner she offered desert but we declined. Next thing we know she’s bringing over two forks and a chocolate brownie made from heaven! This place is def a must visit. You’ll have a bit of a wait if you order the steak and your wallet will take a hit but it’s worth it we’ll definitely be back.
