The four of us all had steak. While we had different cuts we each found the steak the be quite tough and chewy. Additionally we agreed the steaks lacked flavor. Incidentally 1 of our 4 asked for medium rare and it arrived rare to raw. The sauces accompanying the steaks were not bad and the sides were good. While it may have been an off night for the restaurant, we will not be back.

Food was good. Waitress service was excellent. Had to wait 45 minutes with reservation when I finally asked about the wait I was met with an attitude by the hostess saying I never checked in when in fact she was the person to check me in when I arrived. She was not apologetic at all and really portrayed an uncaring attitude toward the patrons. This will certainly affect business if this continues

Delicious meal. The bread was warm and fresh (lovely knotted rolls with either butter or a flavored olive oil). The French onion soup is beefy and flavorful. Had the veal osso bucco over mushroom risotto which was outstanding. Brussel sprouts sauteed with bacon and with a maple glaze were delicious. Both were specials for the night. My husband had the steak salad which was also delicious. Unfortunately we were too full for dessert. Very much enjoyed the live music as well. I believe KB Band was playing. A lively evening out!

Loved the atmosphere here. My steak was cooked perfectly. My companions ordered salads to accompany their meals and they were delicious and quite large. Overall it was a nice dining experience and the menu selection was also big enough but kit too big.

Very nice, lively bar. It looked like the bar menu was pretty solid, but we did not order from that.

The food in the restaurant was not good. We ordered two appetizers, crab cake and buffalo oysters. Both were "ok", but definitely not at the level expected for the cost. The steak was $45 and was very disappointing - it was thin, full of hard tissues, and did not have a good flavor. The cut of meat was just not good - very disappointing for the cost. The sides were also not good - the creamed corn is basically a cheese sauce with corn in it, and the corn was under cooked... not good. We will not be returning.

We love this restaurant for special occasions - we celebrated birthdays here the last two years, as well as Mother's Day. The food is consistently awesome, with very interesting specials. The filet is my go-to and it's perfect every time.

A great time with two friends. Our server, Lilly, was terrific--very helpful with recommendations. I've dined here several times; since it was a quiet Sunday evening, the noise level was fine. During other visits, however, it was challenging to hear others at the table. I'm hoping that issue has been resolved because it's gratifying to have a family owned fine dining restaurant that is doing well in the borough.

We sat in the tables at the end of the bar. It has exposed brick walls and a tv over the fireplace. We enjoyed that since we wanted to watch college football.

Food was excellent. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides were very good as well.

Great place for a date night!

The food was delicious which is what we went for. However the waitstaff was very poor. We did not receive bread plates. While I was still eating the waitress came and asked if we would like the remaining food boxed, which we did, she proceeded to take the food away even though I said I would like to finish eating. Everybody else in the restaurant was still eating and there was no-one waiting for a table. After she walked away from the table she asked if we wanted desert as an afterthought.

The food and service is always excellent, but we were in the back room with overhead ventilation. The HVAC system would turn on and off and make it hard to hear when mixed with everyone else's conversations. The interior noise level is very high and with no partitions between tables, the sound travels.

We enjoyed all of our food while the service was top notch. For some reason, the HVAC in the back room (never sat there) was very loud.

Great food.
My only recommendation. Our server was focused on being fast which is great but it made me feel rushed to order. And he also dropped or knocked over several things (my table and others near us) trying to be fast. I want a more deliberate air from a server than that.

Was very disappointed. The service was very slow even though the restaurant was not crowded. I expected to pay for everything al a carte, but the portions were very small given the price. Most upsetting was that 2 of the three entrees came out lukewarm at best. When I finally got the waitress, she immediately offered to take them back to be reheated. Considering that they were fish entrees with an average price of $35 (remember NOTHING is included with the entree) reheating was not appropriate. Next the manager comes over and says that since I would be getting a complimentary dessert for my birthday, he really couldn't do any adjustment due to the issues. Considering that the bill for the three of us with only one cocktail was $200 I think there was some wiggle room. Don't plan to ever return. Think twice before going here.

Great way to spend a Saturday Night in West Chester!
Started with a couple of really nice Martinis- ICY cold with the little ice shavings floating on top, just like God intended. We had the Colossal Crab Cocktail and the Shrimp Cocktail- both delicious and well portioned. We split a nice BLT Wedge and the nightly special- a dry aged 16OZ Strip, done perfectly. Afterwards we joined the friendly crowd at the bar and had a drink while watching a pretty good cover band and then Ubered home.
We'll be back!

disappointing birthday dinner!
the parking meter in front of the restaurant would not accept quarters or credit cards. When informed, the host said, "Guests have been telling me about that." Why didn't he bag the meter and report it? WE parked and then had to move our car.
My husband wanted a filet; thus our reservation at Pietro's Prime. His Signature Ribeye Centercut Filet arrived on a 12" round plate all by itself. Pitiful presentation! To my husband's dismay, the filet was tough and chewy. The server brought out the chef/owner who offered other choices, but the damage was done and my husband's appetite was not interested.
I ordered the lump crabmeat salad with Crab Louis dressing. THe salad was huge, the sliced tomatoes were just pink and hard, not summer's delight. It took at least 5 minutes to catch our server's attention so I could request some crab louis dressing on the side for the crab meat.
We will not return to Pietro's Prime.
