So I've been here before and loved it. This time I felt underwhelmed. Setting is very nice. Service is superlative. Our meals were good, but not great. The popovers are to die for - undeniably delicious! The oysters were very good. What turned me off was the Alaskan King Crab appetizer. It was 2 small pieces of King Crab - maybe a total of 9 inches for $29.00! Seriously? I was actually offended by this offering and felt foolish. Our steaks and sides were very good. I don't mind spending $$ on a great meal - I just can't believe the King Crab price for what we received!!

I dine out for business often. I have been to every steakhouse in Philly and BP is the best. It’s all about the quality of the beef and the way it is expertly prepared. Some Philly steakhouses seem to have forgotten the basics.

Yes, you will pay. My only ding on BP (and most great steakhouses) is the mark-up on some bottles of really good wine - but the wine list is extensive and includes good selections by the glass if you don’t want to splurge.

Our service was terrific.

Will be back many times.

We called minutes before our reservation at 5:30 letting them know we were running late and arrived before 6PM (the Valet was confusing, as you need to leave the car at the Park restaurant, causing us to circulate the block during rush hour to figure it out - valet took a while to appear so we split-up to get to the reservation desk as quickly as possible). They were having trouble finding a seat within the restaurant proper due to our arrival time, but they easily sat us at the Lounge, opposite the bar & entry. We much preferred this, as the ambiance is much nicer and romantic: there’s better lighting (odd orange/pink glow within restaurant making food & people look strange), better ambient temperature (40 degrees outside, yet warm enough for me to shed my jacket; the restaurant area was much icier - my food would have gotten cold before I’d been done consuming it; and, most importantly, was the sound level - way too noisy in restaurant area (volume increases proportionately as evening increases). We’d specifically requested the quietest seating location available, as one of us has hearing loss in one ear. The Lounge was perfection for our needs, conversation was easy without straining to hear/be heard.

The corking fee for a large bottle is $35. We started w/tuna tartar & scallops. They were scrumptious (& waitstaff is impeccably trained to handle shellfish allergies). We split a wedge salad (followed waiter’s recommendation of trying their standard dressing, which combines Russian and blue cheese dressing, creating the perfect tanginess. We both had dry aged steaks - ribeye & NY strip (the 40 day aged choice) paired with jumbo asparagus & Kennet Square mushrooms. Ribeye & mushrooms were superb; NY strip was not as tasty as the ribeye, but that’s my mistake for selecting that cut. Asparagus was essentially tasteless.

Barclay Prime (Lounge & accompanying waitstaff) made our 5th wedding anniversary a special occasion, right down to the special sweet!

we were not seated until almost 8 pm eventhough we had reservation at 7:30. We ordered steaks and were as cool as room temperature. The service was not as great as I have seen it.

This is the best steak house in Philadelphia (by a mile) and probably for 100 miles in any direction too. The service is unparalleled, the food is perfect every time, and the atmosphere is warm and refined.

The food was tasty. The lobster bisque was filling and delectable. The bread poppers went well with the soup. My lamb chops were undercooked (I ordered it medium-well and got medium/rare in center). Once it was heated through, it was delicious. Unfortunately, I had already tried to eat through most of it before I saw another server. My husband's porterhouse was great. The Smores creme brulee was good, but the deep dish cookie dessert was not cooked through all the way. It was gummy and I couldn't enjoy it the way I wanted. Mac and cheese and fried cauliflower were great! The service was top-notch initially. I just didn't see my server for a long while after the meal was served. No one came by to check to see if the meal was prepared properly for us. All in all, we were celebrating a birthday, so I made it work.
