My Bibb salad was soaked in dressing. The broccolini was actually charred. It was not edible. Apparently the chef also agreed when it was returned. Ordered sweet corn instead and the waiter responded that it was not an option. Apparently two out of three of us were given an old
menu. The medium-well steak was medium-rare in the middle. I’m not sure who was in the kitchen but by far missing the mark of sixth ranked steakhouse. Heck the steak knife was dull! Service was good and manager removed charge for steak though I didn’t ask. Disappointing to say the least.

Exceptional service and experience from the moment we walked in the door. Showed up a bit early for our reservation and decided in indulge in a few cocktails. Our bartender Eric was of great help picking out beverages and went over the menu with us prior to being seated. Jeff our waiter was very pleasant and welcoming as well. Walked us through the menu and we never felt rushed one bit. Will most definitely be returning to try more of the menu.

I just felt that it was an off night in the kitchen, my meal was fine but nothing amazing. Yet, my friend told me that he really enjoyed his food. I don't think that I will be returning anytime soon.

The seating was extremely uncomfortable and crowded. The food was not quite up to par with what would be expected, I ordered the ribeye cooked medium what I received was a steak more on the rare side with bright red mostly though out and a heavily charred exterior. The waiter was rude in correcting the pronunciation of the menu items multiple times even when being incorrect himself. When an incorrect side item was brought out he apologized but put the blame on the way my wife stated the item.

Wonderful king crab cocktail, lamb was cooked perfect , truffle mac was creamy and perfect. Picking out the knife for my meal from a variety of countries was awesome! I loved how dark and cozy it was but def needs more heat in the back! I was cold.... Overall wonderful experience and fun date night.

Outstanding food and service each and every time that I am there. Top notch experience that will keep bringing me back, again and again. Worth the price. As far as I am concerned, Philly's top steakhouse.

Amazing food & service. Decor is very upscale. We sat in the main dining room, the bar area seemed very loud when we walked through it. When being seated they asked if we were celebrating a special occasion (2 birthdays), the cake and birthday message at the end was a nice touch. Our 12 year old wants to make this an annual trip!

The caesar salad had too much dressing and there was too much sliced garlic on the broccolini
The filet mignonette,sea bass, mushrooms and whipped potatoes were excellent

Took my husband here for his 28th Birthday dinner. It was the best choice I could have made. We have been to many nice steak houses throughout different cities and this was by far one of the best! The service was great from the minute we walked in the door. Melissa and Eddy were phenomenal and we would be back just to experience dining with them again! Working in the hospitality industry in Philadelphia we notice quite a bit when dining, but this was all positive! Thank you!

This steak house is a level above the rest in the city!! First time hd the lobster & couldn't stop talking about it for2 weeks!! The lobster is absolute perfection! We went back for second time & had the Scallop appetizer & Dover Sole as my entree & of course coked to perfection again. My husband had the Filet mignon both times & he said it was the BEST he has ever had! We can't say enough we LOVE IT HERE!!

I took my husband here for his birthday. Food and drinks were absolutely amazing! I have a gluten allergy and they were so amazing with it. They gave me a gluten free menu and suggested things to get off my husbands regular menu that could be gluten free. My husband picked a bottle of wine and they couldn’t find it (not really sure what happened there) but they upgraded the wine and kept it at the original cost. Lastly, we ordered dessert and they still brought a little special treat for his birthday so he got two desserts! It was truly amazing experience and I would definitely recommend if you have some money to spend!

The Wagyu ribeye was absolutely amazing and I always wanted to try it. I was not disappointed with it. However I simply couldn’t say it was an excellent value because that cost for a steak just simply isn’t a value.

I have been to Barclay Prime numerous times. However this time our steaks were beyond amazing. Service was great as always. I did notice a few changes on the menu as well as the wines by the glass. I highly recommend for a quick bite in the bar/lounge area or a great sit down dinner date

Beautiful decor and ambiance but food was just okay. Chopped salad was over dressed and over sized. I splurged on the Waygu Filet and it was just ok. Creamed spinach was way too salty. Tater tots tasted just like the ore ida ones. I guess I expected more compared to the chain steakhouses. I would have rated Sullivan’s and Ruth’s Chris higher than Barclay. I do have to give a shout out for the service though. Some kind of fabric made its way into my drink cup and they were very gracious about it.

A very good choice in Philly is you're looking for a steakhouse. Wonderfully relaxing atmosphere with terrific service. I come here when I'm in the area. I'm usually a Tomahawk rib eye guy thought the done in filet is outstanding.

Barclay Prime did not disappoint. The attention to details is only second to the absolutely delicious food you are served. The bread popovers were amazing as always and the filet was done to perfection. Make sure to save room for dessert and get the triple cookie with ice cream. Truly all these things make it my favorite place to dine.

The food was delicious and service was outstanding. Nice atmosphere and great music in the background. We got there very late the other night due to a family member in the nearby hospital and we were treated wonderful and they didn’t rush us or make us feel like we were imposing. It was a wonderful dinner, will be back...
