I’ve been several times before pandemic.
Today is wedding anniversary dinner with my friends.
But I felt mistakes to choose this place, Smoke Cigar smelling bothered me.
I don’t understand why they allow to smoke inside.

One of the managers walked around without a mask talking the entire 2.5 hrs we were there. Covid is rampant. She works in the cigar bar and came back and forth in the restaurant. For that reason we may not come back until after the pandemic because if we do and see it again we will alert the authorities. It was just no reason for that when all the staff and guests followed the law.

Our server was amazing, but the food was terrible. Everything was just over cooked. I also didn’t expect such a nice restaurant to serve their spinach and artichoke dip with tortilla chips. Loved the steak and cheese rolls (appetizer) and drinks. They have a great wine selection and their blackberry lemonade cocktail is delicious. Just not worth the money.

Sat outside with 3 co-workers. Temp was in the 40s & wind was whipping! A bit brisk, but servers & the manager set us up with heaters & we had an excellent lunch. Hot toddy with bourbon excellent. Shared some apps & had French Onion soup. We will be back, hopefully on a less windy day.

Good location, easy access. Street parking a short walk away and fairly well illuminated. Good outside dining/drinking and DID have heat (propane towers) but building management has pulled that winter necessity away. Indoor table separation a bit close in the bar area, and not much better in the main restaurant. Go early and that is not a problem.
The wait staff is tremendous. Keeps good distance but need not be "searched for." Great drinks, fantastic food both appetizers and entrees. There are a number of desserts listed but in fact there is only ONE---The Bread Pudding., serves two VERY comfortably.
Great for first dates, office parties, assignations, or routine dining with adult family members.

We had reservations at 7:15 and weren't seated until 8 pm. The service was slow after that. Our New York strip was thick and raw inside. Food was far overpriced for what we were served.

Nothing bad happened during our visit. But, nothing stood out as great, either. Some highlights:
They offered a QR code for the menu.
Our server had NO wine knowledge and could not make a pairing suggestion.
The bar manager (?) stepped in for the server and helped us make a wine selection.
The cheeses and meats offered on the QR menu differed from the tablet menu and the server didn't know which was correct. (Also, there were no hard cheese offerings. That's a shame.)
Our entrees were fine.
It took a very long time to process our payment.
In all, it was an ok visit, but there are so many options in the area.

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!

This is our go to spot in Tysons for happy hour! Pre, during and hopefully post corona!
American prime has great service, friendly staff and good food.

Due to cocos restrictions we sat outside, and had the huge firepit on. I was cosy and fun!

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.
