Service was top notch!! We chose to do outdoor dining and even on a very cold night we were perfectly warm inside our cube! They are doing such a great job with all of the restrictions! Well done Barclay!!

Staff , food , wine was excellent . We def ordered to much but it made great leftovers. I would highly recommend. The only small issue was that it was still a little too cold in the outdoor dining area to be fully comfortable ( we had hoped to be seating inside as indoor dining had opened the day before ) and we were not offered any blankets etc nor the heating turned up when we were clearly cold. All the staff were excellent , knowledgeable and friendly . Food was very very good. Stellar experience and will be back next time I'm in Philly and have already recommended to several ppl. You will not regret going here. I highly recommend.

Great food and waiter but there were two mice who kept showing up outside our pod, five feet from us while eating and going under out pod and being very loud. I also asked for a birthday desert and did not receive one. Much better experience when dining indoors here.

Truthfully i love this place but i ordered their Japanese kobe beef and it was sadly a disappointment. My fiancé and another couple each had a bite because it was so salty i needed another opinion. They did cook me another one and it was better but sadly, the regular filet was so much better.

All in all, it’s good here and i will return but will not order anything “extra” form here

This was the most expensive meal I’ve ever had, but also simultaneously, the BEST/most delicious meal I’ve ever had. I will never ever forget this amazing dining experience. Worth every penny. Best restaurant in the city, hands down.

If not the best, one of the best seabass I’ve had! Thick, buttery and tender, topped with a cispy cover. Just perfect! Scallops also delicious! Barclay Prime one of my favorite restaurants in Philly.

Started off with the oysters on the 1/2 shell with the red wine mignonette. Never have the red wine mignonette before, but it was an excellent addition.
My wife ordered the NY Strip with the horseradish creme fraiche on the side.
I ordered the Ribeye with the Oscar on top.
Both steaks were ordered medium rare and were cooked perfectly.
I had an issue with my ribeye which was a tough vein that was more chewy than I would expect from a 45 day dry aged steak. Otherwise, the food would've received 5 stars. But, since I'm reviewing 2 steaks, my wife's was a 5, mine a 3 (because of high expectations).
Our sides were the truffle mac and cheese as well as the grilled broccolini. Both were excellent.
We ordered a bottle of the Heritance Cabernet Sauvignon that paired very well with the steaks.
For dessert, we had the Crem Brulee which was just average.
Finished with 2 Altesino Grappas which I found to be overpriced compared to other high end restaurants.
We thought they did a great job dealing with no indoor dining due to pandemic restrictions at the time. The individual outdoor "pods" had heat vents. Outside temp on this evening was 32, but with the heat vent, would say it was about 50. However, thought it was important to come out and support the local restaurants during these times and was glad we did. Other than my steak issue (dined here before and didn't have that problem), we would definitely come back again.

Food and service were outstanding, as always. The outdoor seating was not adequately heated. Other Rittenhouse Square restaurants do a far better job of heating, but what Barclay Prime put together resulted in a very disappointing experience.
To make matters worse, we had about a seven minute wait for a Lyft driver to pick us up, and my 75 year old husband was told that he could not wait inside.
This is after we spent over $500.00 on dinner for three including a generous gratuity for the server, who did an excellent job despite the freezing conditions.
I understand that indoor dining is currently banned due to the city’s response to the pandemic, but there was plenty of room in the building to allow my husband a few minutes inside while our driver was en route.
This experience really was disappointing.

Enjoyable dinner, but food got cold too quickly outside.
Time to stop the lockdown nonsense and let us eat inside again.
I will be back then.

Best dry aged steak in Philadelphia! I’ve been to Del Frisco’s, Butcher & Singer, Alpen Rose, Capital Grille, Morton’s, the old Ruth Chris... they’re all great but Barclay Prime has consistently been better!

The outdoor seating was amazing, tiny chandeliers in each booth and heating. The only downside to the ambience was the animals running around outside, but that’s to be expected since you’re outside.

Food was great, as always. Filets were cooked exactly as specified, and we didn’t have any room left for dessert.
