Socially distanced weeknight dinner for 4 on the patio. Loved their patio. As the evening got cooler, staff moved a heat lamp near our table and we were very comfortable until we departed. The 4 of us either had a martini or a bourbon smash & both were excellent. Charcuterie was nice, salads were okay (nothing special). We shared meat 3 ways - smoked prime rib, short ribs & a tomahawk ribeye & all 3 were fantastic! Along with asparagus, brussels sprouts & cowboy corn, we had a tremendous feast. Loved every bite & waddled out the door at the end of the evening. :-) Servers were professional & attentive. We will be back!

Have to say we had a great experience, especially with Covid. Sat outside on your beautifully lite patio, fire pits, and everything. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
The only thing we would say is that we had know idea the restaurant was there, 5 minutes from our house, been open for two years and had no clue. Our recommendation is to do a little marketing, send out a flyer, offering a free appetizer, or something. Let people in Mclean, Tysons, Great Falls know you are there. Even with covid, with your patio set up, I'm sure you would have more people dining at your restaurant. Marketing is key...like I said the four of us live 5 min away...and not one of us knew the restaurant existed.

We enjoyed our first evening out since March 2020. We chose American Prime because they offered outside dining in the Tysons' area. We were very pleased with our dinner, the service and the ambiance.

The French Onion soup was delicious as was the cowboy corn. The crab cake was a little spicy and the salmon was just OK. The blackberry lemonade cocktail was delicious.

We sat outdoors and everyone was very good about wearing masks.

Great hidden gem with outstanding aged steaks or just a great burger or chix sandwich. Try the Pork Sandwich! Buried in an office complex bit worth the hunt with a big courtyard and outside dining. Cheers...

Change in Chef can be tasted ...for instance, the bone marrow butter was served at room temperature and not melted like before. The apps were different too. The staff is till feet as always up front and at the bar/service area.

It was Valentine’s Day, which is always a difficult meal for every restaurant. Always, the food is excellent here, but this night, not so good. I’ll be back though:) We just wanted to go out for a good dinner...not really for Vday, but just a normal dinner. Next time:)

Easily one of the best spots in and around Tysons Corner! The food is excellent! You can choose between the dining area, which is perfect for a quieter experience, and the bar which is perfect for a more energetic experience. The servers and bar tenders are top notch!

a bit disappointing as far as service...we were seated at the farthest left side table for two...it took half an hour for someone to take our order. had to flag a waiter as he was leaving another table...receipt said jeffrey but it seemed like he wasnt really assigned to our table and was just being accomodating...the waiter tending to the table next to us was even at the front host table when we came in...and the table he chose to serve even came 15 minutes after us...surprisingly they got their food order in before us and that waiter never bothered to go to our table even it was pretty obvious we were seated with no water or bread service...

The Restaurant Week menu has nice options but the taste didn’t wow us. Carpaccio appetizer was interesting but the shrimp/crab popper appetizer was meh. Mushroom ravioli entree was pleasant and the prime rib’s smoky crust was good. Key lime pie was average and the bourbon bread pudding would have been so much better if it had been evenly warmed throughout. Wait staff was very nice. Glad we tried the restaurant but not sure there’s a reason to return.

It’s a beautiful dining room and the service was excellent. The sauce on the chicken Parmesan was terrible, tasted like spicy ketchup. The steaks were well cooked however there was no seasoning on them not even salt and pepper. The creamed spinach needed to be creamier. The brussel sprouts were very good. The best part of the meal was the butter cake with ice cream. Very delicious!!!

Worst 8 oz fillet cut I ever had. So sorry for cheating on Capital Grill or Ruth Chris. I asked for a 8 oz fillet, rare, with a cool red center. What I got was a "well" done steak. Outback cooks a better steak. Cut of fillet was thin and weak. When manager approached me, i pointed to my mouth as I was chewing of which she pelted out a bunch of questions on my steak, I had to point to my mouth 3 different times to let her know, i had food in my mouth. Female manager on duty appeared to have limited managerial experience and gave me plenty of attitude followed by a negative head toss when I stated, this is over cooked. Including our table of 5, there were 2 other 2 tops filled...poor all around
