The staff was not well trained and under experienced for the type of restaurant and $$ we paid for a group of 6 people. Ran out of bread at dinner and there was miscommunication between our three waiters.

Food and service was great, but the Saturday dj music is way too loud for a date night. We have been there several times and it didn't seem to be that distracting. i couldn't even hear across the smaller 2 person table.

Food quality was very poor fir the expense. Potatoes were cold and runny like soup. Salad was saturated with dressing and soggy. Sea bass was not cooked and very fishy. Veal chop was overwhelmed with mushrooms.
Would not recommend to anyone fir the price. It was our 41st wedding anniversary and the experience was a downer.

Way overpriced. Pasta is cooked one way and one way ONLY, undercooked!!! We will not be returning to this establishment, I will be surprised if they remain operational for 12 mos.

Noises, food ok nothing special. Sea bass under cooked, Salad overdressed and other wise boring. Tiny menu. very few choices. Wines by the glass low end and over priced. We ordered a bottle of wine first choose on their small wine list was not available second choice more expensive not available ended up buying a Chardonnay that was recommended less expensive but tasteless. Not impressed with this place.

We had shrimp cocktail and fried mozzerella for starters and this was excellent. Desserts were amazing as well.

It was a bit pricey but very good.

We went for my boyfriend’s birthday - I was hoping for a celebration of some sort since I marked it on my reservation, but we never received one. This was our second time eating at Martorano’s Prime and felt that this time our steaks were a little over done. They were still delicious, but just were charred for being medium. My boyfriend got the special, the 32 ounce Porterhouse, and it was good! I got a repeat of the 8 ounce filet with shrimp and it was tasty, just the shrimp was a little cold. If we didn’t have superb tastings the first time I probably wouldn’t mention these items, but overall our service was excellent.

Our crew went there for dinner ahead of going to the Steeler game. The first thing that you notice is the friendly and inviting atmosphere. The menu was very nice…a nice mix of great and tempting entrees, some more pricey but other more budget friendly. We were able to share some of the sides which was great. You could certainly have a fantastic meal to match your budget. That said, the food was absolutely fantastic. Each entree was prepared to perfection and tasted so delicious. The best thing, however, was the service!! Our server Shawn was incredibly attentive, very engaging, and just plain funny which made the whole meal so enjoyable. I recommend this fine restaurant wholeheartedly. We will definitely be back. Go Steelers!

Although the overall experience was pleasant (ambiance and service were on point) we were underwhelmed with the pasta entrees- which were bland and ordinary, and certainly not what one would expect from an upscale and quite expensive fine dining restaurant.

Food and service was good but not as good as I would expect for the price of the food. They need to lower the prices to match the quality of food and service you get.

It was good, but way overpriced. The famous South Philly Sunday gravy was really good as was the calamari appetizer. Chicken parm was a little tough though. Very loud which was fine, the music was awesome but interesting choice to show R-rated movies while fine dining, just a little unexpected to see full on boobage in that setting. The service was excellent.

This was our second time dining here. The appetizer was very good. The chicken Parmigiana was very bland. Very disappointed. I order filet medium and half was cooked well, but tasted fine and the other half, oddly enough, was very dry. I expected much better because this is a high end restaurant. It was very overpriced as well. Go to Morton’s. Better food and better service and you feel you will get your money’s worth.

The staff members were wonderful! The food was very good but over priced in my opinion. We went for dinner. We were seated at a table that was right in front of the kitchen area. There was a glass window where one could view the kitchen area … and, although some might find that interesting, we found that the light was very bright from the kitchen shining on our table. It really took away from the atmosphere and trying to be able to see the river and other things outside in the evening. Very distracting. The music was very loud in the restaurant. It was difficult to carry on a conversation. It was disappointing. The restaurant might want to consider putting some type of tinting on the glass to the kitchen so it’s not so bright on those seated by the area.

3 servers for a party of 4 ?? Couldnt even talk or look at menu as a different server approaching our group every minute and all asking same hing previous server asked. Then when food was ready, one meal was brought out at a time and maybe 1 minute or two in between ??? 3 servers and one person got their meal, then a minute or two later another person got their meal and so forth. Keep in mind just party of 4. Lastly when ordering a $70 steak (just the steak was $70) you would think you can order it cooked how you would like??? LOL nope, wanted it well done, or at least no red and the waiter refused and said they only do med well and there will be red. After another request waiter said they wont do it. LOL ok.. Food was just ok.Wont be back.

Food was good, but for the price, not extrordinary. Be prepared to drop $500 for 2 bottles of wine and dinner for 4. Never been to a restaurant where I have to place my entire order at one time…very restrictive. Everything was prepared with a spicoholic in mind. Waiter wouldn’t entertain my request to have the sea bass prepared without the hot chili sauce…no adjustments/substitutions. He came off as pretentious and inflexible. I ordered a filet instead, which was not served on a bed of anything. The music was so loud that we literally had to yell across the table to be heard. We felt very rushed…waiter or bus person would take your plate without even asking if you were finished. Didn’t think our table of 4 required a multi-person wait staff. Don’t get me wrong…I love the movie “Goodfellas”…but didn’t need the blood & gore on the TV above my head as I was eating my steak. On a positive note…the warm bread was delish. Sorry, don’t think we’ll go back though.

Food took 45 minutes, had to track down wait staff on multiple occasions, was never asked if we wanted dessert. 23rd anniversary dinner…would not come back again nor recommend to anyone.
