Disappointing food...
The appetizer cheese board and the wedge salad were good. But the steak entrees were bad and in edible. I ordered the filet which was so hard to cut, was not tender and had a big vein in the middle I couldn’t chew. The seasoning was sour and I sent it back. My fiend ordered the ribeye which was a mess of fat and non-tender steak. She sent that back. The side of gnocchi had no flavor and the wild mushrooms had a sour taste. Their seasoning is not good overall. Desserts were great and the service was very good also. I’d stick to the bar area and appetizers.

Wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary at American Prime. The meal was delicious and our server was delightful. I have already decided we need to return for my birthday so I can try a different entree. I think I'll have the key lime pie again since it was perfect. I highly recommend you give this restaurant a try and enjoy!

The steak salad was excellent for lunch. We had a business lunch and were put in a corner where it was quiet where we could talk. Everything about the experience was really fabulous. Looking forward to going back again.

We went on a Sunday night. No one else was there. The vegetables that came with the meal were dried and shriveled potatoes and twice warmed zucchini. Otherwise, everything was fine. I guess that the weekday lunch hours are their peak hours.

This was a birthday dinner. We were also there for Valentine's Day. Food is amazing, service was the best and a great place for dinner. My concern is that enough people do not know about this restaurant. I live in the neighborhood and never see the restaurant advertised plus you don't see it when driving by the office complex it's in.

We both enjoyed two spicy shrimp/crab poppers because we each had a coupon for a free appetizer with entree purchase. Our filet had the bone marrow butter sauce which added good flavor. Both our steaks had to be cooked a bit more. I ordered medium rare while my husband ordered medium. His was still pretty medium rare but very tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed a 2015 St. Francis zinfandel. I ordered the flourless chocolate cake to go. I added cool whip at home which made it absolutely delicious.

I came here during Restaurant Week to celebrate a happy family occasion and was very impressed. Upon walking in they offered to take our coats for a coat check, and they guided us to a table (on my online reservation I asked for a private table not in the center of the dining room).

They were very professional throughout the whole visit. The waiter was great but even more was the host (she had red hair). She was AMAZING! Very considerate and was on the ball.

The filet mignon was delightful. I was a little disappointed in my Prime Rib, but it still was very tender and savory.

The crab and shrimp poppers were great and the wagyu beef carpaccio was pretty good as well.

The cheesecake and bourbon bread pudding was the ice cream on top of the cake.

Wonderful experience here, and hope to return again soon! I definitely recommend!

The staff is very polite and well-trained. Bravo.

I almost don’t want to tell others so this place remains a hidden gem but this is a GREAT steakhouse tucked in an office park. We’ve been twice now and both times it was fantastic all around.

The filet is delicious and perfectly cooked! I never thought I would say this but the bone marrow mashed potatoes were so good they ALMOST won over the steak as my favorite part of the meal!

Their desserts are delicious: perfect bread pudding and one of the most delicious key lime pies I’ve ever had!

We enjoyed the Washington Week menu. We had two delicious, spicy crab/shrimp poppers to begin. My husband's steak was medium rare when he had ordered medium. Mine was rare and I had ordered medium rare. When it came back, it was overdone and grisly. I ate about half my steak and gave it to my husband. He shared 2 bites of his with me and another 2 bites of medium rare steak from mine. It came with a sweet juice which neither of us liked much. It needed some additional zest, perhaps a flavored butter? Service was wonderful. They poured our red wine into a carafe to let it breathe and poured from that. They offered me a dessert from the menu since I didn't care for any of the options. I ate it over two nights and it was terrific. We will definitely return and try the fish instead.

First time dining at American Prime. It is a little difficult to find since it is tucked into a business park. We went for restaurant week menu so it was definitely worth the trip. We all had 8 oz fillets which were excellent. Crab/shrimp poppers were not like bar food - but rather real house made and very tasty. Bread pudding was a hit. Overall a good new restaurant to try.
