    We had a very nice time! This was our 5 or 6 visit. Always excellent! Food was cooked perfectly to our specifications and can out spaced perfectly. I don't remember our server's name but she was great! The artichoke with shiitake mushroom soup they complimentary sent us at the beginning of our meal was a very nice touch! We will be back again soon!

    Took my parents out for a special dinner. BP did not disappoint. Service was outstanding. Jackson was so attentive and timed our meal perfectly. We felt special! Food was outstanding. From soup to dessert. My husband said it was the best NY Strip he’s ever had! Hope to be back at another time.

    The food, service and ambiance are all excellent. My 40 day aged NY strip was perfectly cooked and seasoned allowing the natural flavor of the beef and slight musk to shine through. My wife’s butter poached lobster was equally delicious. As with all top end steakhouses the wine prices are almost insultingly expensive but there are some modestly priced wines available too. Always enjoy dining here.

    The service, ambiance and food were excellent! Probably one of the best crab cakes I have ever had. Excellent Caesar salad and porterhouse was perfect. Creamed spinach was extremely salty but it was replaced with another portion and it was very good. All in all a great restaurant.

    We've been to Barclay Prime several times and it has yet to disappoint. Start of with the best 'bread' I had since Mark's in Paris. No better wedge salad. Get it with both dressings. The Filet just about melts in your mouth. Expensive, but you get what you pay for.

    This is the best meal we have had in quite awhile! Everything was excellent, from the salad and the best hamachi crudo ever to the filets oscar we had, cooked perfectly and loaded with lump crabmeat! Add that to some great cocktails and it was the perfect dinner to start 2023 off with!!! Cheers!
