I would like to commend the staff last night (7/14/18) who handled our complaint with style, generosity, and grace. 3 of us went to the restaurant for a special celebration. The Prime Board (cheese, prosciutto, Soppressata with with 3 amazing sauces), was DELICIOUS, as was the shrimp cocktail (some secret ingredient in the sauce that we loved). Unfortunately, the steaks we ordered were not so great. We spoke to the manager who apologized and sent the day's special cookie dough dessert, a lemon tart, and a chocolate cake to our table. OH MY GOD! THEY WERE AMAZING!

Thanks to the waiter and the manager, we had a lovely evening, left happy and full, and definitely wanting to return to and recommend Liberty Prime Steakhouse (Liberty Prime Steakhouse & Events.

PS: The table next to us left a cell phone behind which I brought up to the hostess stand. She literally ran down the street to find the people it belonged to. Prime Steakhouse Team--A true class act!

Liberty Prime always delivers a wonderful meal that includes appetizers and entrees. Have not had dessert there. The service is attentive and accommodating. We drive in from Queens for special occasion meals with our Jersey daughter. Always enjoyable.

I went for steak with my friends. Two of us felt serious stomachache after the lunch.
We have also been charged 16 dollars for water without any notice from the waitress. After we sat down, the waitress asked if we want anything for drinks. we told the waitress that we just want water, then the waitress asked us if we want bottle water or tap. We said bottle and then she brought the water to us. Until we saw the check, we didn’t know it’s 8 dollars/bottle.
I won’t come back again.

The food just wasn't that good; and I'm finding that steakhouse, even the good ones, aren't taking their steaks and cuts seriously. A $50-$80 steak should be perfectly trimmed and barrel cut (flat top, flat bottom. NEVER serve the butt ends or filet or ribeyes, never. More and more I get a flat side and the butt end down on the plate like the chef is trying to fool the customer or the manager or something. I got a butt end filet that was already cut, like somebody cut it to see the temperature, I sent it back. My second steak was better. Creamed spinach, was like eating baby food, just a little too watery - like a pesto. Hash browns too, soggy, not a crispy morsel in the serving bowl. The wedge was adequate.

Went from mother's day - food was really really good. But the service was pretty meh. Very abrupt/abrasive throughout the meal which ended with dessert/coffee being cleared before asked, a check being dropped wthout us asking for it, and a "whenever you're ready" - as if we were holding the table up and camping too long - which is silly. Again, not even a thank you when the check was returned or a "enjoy mother's day." Just odd service.

Food was excellent! Scallops were tender and tasty. I asked for grilled asparagus as a substitution and it easily accommodated and was very good. The service was professional and very attentive without being overbearing. Half priced bottles of wine made my night and especially that it included Sancerre! I will be back.

My husband and I chose Liberty Prime Restaurant as the venue to celebrate our 28th Wedding Anniversary. Our intimate table for 2, the ambiance and vibrancy of the atmosphere were perfect. I enjoyed the lobster bisque with a hint of brandy. It was one of the best I've ever had. The salmon with meso glaze, coconut rice with apple & pea slaw was sumptuous. The food portions were good and the service was excellent! After simply mentioning our anniversary to David our gracious and attentive server, we were given champagne to toast our anniversary, compliments of the restaurant. That was so Awesome! We enjoyed a beautiful evening and will definitely return for the signature steak. Thank you Liberty Prime for a memorable experience.

We were rushed through our meal from the moment we sat down. There was no reservation after ours, but we were pushed to order multiple times and food was brought out way too quickly. They tried to clear our appetizer plates before we had even finished, to make room for the main course. The steak was pretty good, if not a tad over cooked. Unfortunately, the service overshadowed that, and I would not go back, nor recommend this place for anyone looking to enjoy a leisurely steak dinner.

Food was good. Steaks were actually the least impressive thing on the menu. I had the new york strip and my mother had the filet. Nothing stood out that I would pay over $30 for either. The artichoke appetizer and duck special were excellent. The blackened fish and creme brulee were also pretty good.

Our server was nice and came through, but staff for a nice steak place should at least be doing the basics, which did not take place (intro, have you dined with us before?, a bit about the restaurant or where the food comes from, etc.)

Ambience was pretty typical for a steak place. They do have a nice separation between the bar, with a loud and casual vibe and the dining room which was still a bit casual, but a lot quieter.

Like Billy Crystal once said , It was marvelous !!! In so from moment we were greeted until we said our goodbyes to the restaurants host . Let’s start by mentioning , it was our anniversary so I requested a nice and quiet romantic location and wanted to make it that little bit extra special . So we were sat upstairs overlooking the entire restaurant and a magical view of the large snow flakes coming down we seemed to be in part of a movie so, mission accomplished, romantic it was . Back to the restaurant experience Well, our attendant seem to be well versed it the art of hospitality , which made it that much more of a pleasant experience. The food was amazing we felt the chef put a little extra love behind his dishes tonight because they were to die for . Upon receiving our dishes they looked so mouth watering so we could not resist dividing our meals in half so we can experience each other’s entrees . Our entrees were equally as delightful as the other . We can not wait to frequent this gem of an establishment, kudos Liberty Prime Steakhouse.

Liberty Prime is a great JC option. Food is very good & takes reservations. The service on the night we were there was slow and not very attentive. We were tucked in a corner but it was not crazy busy, I thought service could have been better. However, I would return.

Disappointed. Steaks were not cooked as requested. Medium was cooked rear and medium well was cooked medium. Knifes were dull; had a hard time cutting steaks. For a party of two, 20% gratuity was automatically included in bill. Not sure if this was normal policy or if it was because it was Valentine’s night. Our service that night did not deserve a 20% tip. Definitely would not return nor recommend.

Although the place was nice and cozy, I didn't appreciate the fact that you have to pay separately for your side dishes when ordering an entree. That was never explained to me at the onset.

We went for Valentine's day dinner. We opted for the ala carte menu rather than the prix fix. My husband order a prime rib medium well and it came out bleeding. The table behind us sent theirs back. The table next to us sent theirs back 3 times. After he received the 4th he gave up and said he just wanted to dessert. Because of this we didn't even send ours back. I would not come back because clearly the chef doesn't know temps for meat.

I really dont understand how this place gets even one good review. It makes me wonder if i was at the same place. Me and my girlfriend went there for our anniversary. She ordered a steak well done, and we sent it back after it arrived red and severely undercooked. When it came back, it was still red. The steaks are fatty also, so youre paying top dollar for a low quality steak. The waiter was ok, a bit awkward at times but i was very disappointed in general. seems many people experience the same problem, and for a while and clearly this still happens and for these reasons i will not be going back and i do not reccomend this place.

We went during restaurant week so the price for a 3 course meal was good but the pricing on the regular menu was higher than other steakhouses in the area. The food was pretty good but the ambiance left much to be desired in my opinion. They play house music and it feels a bit like a club which is not my thing. I prefer the old school steakhouse vibe.

My wife and i went here for a date night after reading many reviews and Liberty Prime did not disappoint. The seafood was fresh and delicious and the porterhouse for 2 was cooked to perfection. Be ready to drop more than a few dollars but absolutely worth every penny. We didnt feel rushed at all and were attended to at all times. Great night out with the spouse and definitely will be going back!
