The steak will be the very best you have ever eaten. The lobster and sides were fair. I did not like the cigar bar next to our dining table. For the price the ambience was noisy and Smokey.

We loved the atmosphere and the music was a nice touch. The service was prompt and we did not feel rushed. Drinks were good too. Valet parking is always a plus. Highly recommend this restaurant.

They have a long bone rib eye steak for two, or one very big eater, that is possibly the best steak I have ever eaten. It was also cooked to perfection, med rare, as their steaks have always been every time I’ve eaten there.m

Food was great. Service excellent. Had musician singing and playing keyboards which added to the ambiance of our dining experience. Overall had a great night but you would not want to eat here every night or you would end up in the poor house.

Amazing food; outstanding service. Damn great steakhouse all around!!

Only thing is I wish the bar was enclosed or there would be heavy duty extractors to pull out the cigar smoke.

First the good. Everyone was extremely nice and service was great. The bad was one,didn't realize it was a smoking allowed restaurant. That was my fault for not checking. We split a bone in filet cooked medium. It came out rare to medium rare. They quickly took it back to cook it a little more. It then came back medium well to well. We went ahead and ate it anyway do to time,but the meat just tasted mushy. Again,everyone was really nice and I feel tried their best ,but it just wasn't enjoyable. Not sure if I would go back. I know every restaurant has a bad day,but this is a pricey place to risk another trip.

We were one of the last tables of the evening and they did not rush us. We felt like we had been there many times by the way we were treated and it was our first visit. The food was outstanding.

I always order my filet medium and I would assume a steak restaurant would know how to properly cook a steak. My filet and my friend's filet came out undercooked, definitely more rare. Once back, they were then overcooked unfortunately. The other steaks in our party were cooked appropriately. We were also disappointed with the sides--the selection was not very exciting and the creamed corn is definitely not creamed. It was like Mexicorn out of a can. Service was great, no complaints there.

Considering the prices at this place I expected more. It's great fro a cigar bar, but if you don't like cigar smoke and loud noise from the singer don't spend the money. The restaurant is dark and it' hard to see. The food was excellent but we had to send 2 steaks back because they were overdone. The server was excellent but could not overcome the other things.
Again, should have been better for the price.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Can’t wait to go back again. The service was terrific. The food was outstanding. Could have done without the smoking at the bar. Notwithstanding that, the dining experience was outnumbered by none.

The people at NY Prime are great, but the restaurant as a whole.... not so much.
The restaurant allows smoking at the bar... not good.
The restaurant either plays music over the speaker system, or has a guy at the piano playing/singing his favorite tunes... didn't care for that.
The restaurant "chars" their steak. They call it something else... I don't recall exactly what they call it, but in short, they burn the outside of the steak. Didn't like that at all. The other food was delicious.
The manager was kind enough to not charge us for one of our steaks and throw in a dessert to make up for it.

Our waiter was excellent and the food was superb. It is a little on the expensive side but if that is not an issue it is well worth it. We went for our Anniversary and it will be one to remember.

Great food, but the cigar smoke kills the vibe a bit. Sorry, but I realize you are catering to Atlanta elite, but most people don’t dig it.

What a great place. Our experience was amazing. The food, service and live music were amazing. While they do allow cigar smoking in the bar, we requested the semi private room and my wife and kids lived it. No problems at al. Definitely will be back.

If you like sitting in a smoke filled room then this place is for you. For a non-smoker to sit in a smoke filled restaurant in this day and age it was a horrible experience!!

One of the best meals I've had in Atlanta. Lively bar and patio. Old school feel all around. Professional staff that is on point and customer service is a priority. Cigars at the bar, and every drink is given a "home pour". Food is fantastic!!! Best NY Strip I've had, cooked to perfection. Everything start to finish was perfect. Food can stand on it's own, but the ambiance takes it to the next level. Also more affordable than other high end steak houses in town.

Classic steakhouse with small menu of excellent choices! Tonight oysters Rockefeller, shrimp cocktail, broiled chicken and bone in rib steak! All excellent. Sides of onion straws, mashed potatoes and cream corn. My only complaint was the corn not my favorite! Rathbuns roasted cream corn can’t be beat!!! NY Prime a real classic in a crowded market.

I went to ATL for my bday weekend with my husband. I chose this restaurant because I wanted a really nice dinner. It was very dark & you could barely see the menu. It was quite noisy due to live music. Our waitress was very sweet but the food was mediocre. My steak was cooked incorrectly. The manager came over but wasn’t very apologetic. My husband had almost finished his meal by the time mine came back out. You would think that a restaurant of this caliber would comp my steak considering. Nope! Very disappointed & not impressed!

Hands down, one of the best meals I've had anywhere in Atlanta. Ever. We were blown away. We went for our anniversary dinner and felt spoiled and pampered by the wait staff and the menu. We began with the bacon appetizer, enjoyed the filet's (cooked perfectly by the way) for our main course with the fries and onion rings as our side to share and enjoyed the Butter Cake with Ice Cream for dessert. Our Waiter, Richard I believe, was fantastic and attentive. I would highly recommend this place to any and everyone. You felt like you were in an exclusive Jazz Club in New York City or New Orleans in the 1950's. It was incredible.

The staff was super friendly and inviting. The food was absolutely incredible!!!! They have an amazing selection of wine as well. Honestly I was extremely happy with this place. My only issue was their smoking policy. I come from Colorado where smoking isn’t allowed in restaurants, so the smoke smell in there did end up giving me a headache.

I loved the ambiance! I just didn't like the smoking. My hair and clothes smelled like smoke when we left. We are not smokers. Also, my stomach was hurting when I left because of the cigar/cigarette smoking. We did not know smoking was allowed in the restaurant. That was horrible! But we give and overall 5 star because the service and food were fantastic! Outstanding job!
