Beautiful place to take those you love. 3 months to get an 8 pm reservation. I have always loved the House of Prime Rib. Very busy for a Monday . Unable to get a drink at the bar prior to dinner as they appeared to be short of bartenders and wait staff in the bar area. Once we were seated, everything was well orchestrated and food was delicious.

Table was a bit crowded for 4 people. A bit in the corner as well. Meat good but unable to watch being carved. A bit too much au jus with meat.
Anniversary desert was special for our guests. Thank you. Next time would like a quieter room to dine in.

Old fashioned in a bad way. Just extremely blend food that substitute cream for any seasoning. Nothing against the staff that was nice, just bad outdated food.

This place is one of my favorites ever, everything is to die for. My only hang up is that reservations are damn near impossible to get and it was sheer luck that I was able to get them

We dined here for the first time since the pandemic to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary, and the food and service were outstanding as always! The restaurant was BUSY (as expected) and guests were spaced properly to ensure social distancing, so even though it was super busy I never felt like I was crammed. With as busy as it was, service was incredibly quick and everyone here was super friendly as always. Food and cocktails were amazing. Another wonderful dining experience at House of Prime Rib—wouldn’t expect anything less!

Excellent food and service. Strawberry Shortcake was to die. Large and very tasty.
Downside was the noise level. As loud as clubs play music. Had to yell to have a conversation.

Food was good. However, the House cut size of the prime rib is very small and no offer of a slice of complementary at the end. I have been to HOPR about 20 times in last 10 yrs. My first visit since Covid. Very disappointed in cut size. The group I was with felt the same. OK, that price is up, but why change the cut size. Not a value to eat here.

The food was so delicious, and our service was perfect. Our server, Carlos, was friendly, knowledgeable, fast, and kind. He made sure that our birthday celebration was great and very memorable with positive experiences. We cannot wait to come back again and for another amazing night at HOPR.

General experience was great I always come here and expect amazing prime ribs. Unfortunately this time I ordered a rib eye and it was really dry. I asked for medium rare and got medium well, it maybe due to our overall food taking long to come out. Our food came out 40 minutes after the salad. The cut of meat did not represent a rib eye either, it has no marbeling. Not sure if they gave me the wrong cut. Anywho usually a great experience here though just not tonight.

We were celebrate our anniversary with our kid. The maitre’d sat us at a very cramped table that forced the two of us to sit side by side on a bench. There was no way to sit across from one another because the other side of the table was the back of someone’s chair/head.

To make matters worse- There is only one entrance/exit to and from the seat bench (The other one was blocked by a wall)…and the maitre’d wanted to put the child chair where the entrance/exit to the seats were. It was extremely uncomfortable. I requested for another table and was told we might have to wait a bit ( I did make a reservation for three full sized seats after all).

We did get seated to another more comfortable table…However, on my way to the restroom, I saw that the maitre’d had sat another poor couple with a small child in the same seating arrangement. They looked like they spent a lot of time getting ready for that night and looked very disappointed *shake my head*

This is not only inconsiderate to couples and families who have made an effort to celebrate a special occasion…but is also a fire hazard.

William our waiter was GREAT. So helpful, attentive and polite. Had two problems:
1. If you have hearing issue OR wear hearing aids, impossible to talk to each other. Maybe next time we ask fir quieter area?
2. Wasn’t aware that we needed proof of Covid vaccine. Two of us had, one did NOT (but he had the vaccines) but luckily they believed us and we got in. Wish we would have known in advance.

The prime rib was amazing. Cheesecake delicious too. A real steakhouse with intimate dining rooms within a large restaurant.
