Steakhouse
Gargantuan cuts of prime beef, extra thick chops, and simply prepared fresh seafood are the straightforward offerings of this steakhouse that evokes the supper clubs of Manhattan in the 1940's. Leopard print carpeting, black lacquered walls trimmed in brass and tuxedoed waiters complete the elegant atmosphere, featuring live piano and bass nightly. Dress code is business casual.

    Fathers Day dinner. Our first visit. As you can see, we were blown away. Exceptionally tender and flavorful meat. All dishes perfectly prepared. And we especially appreciated the quiet atmosphere.

    First-class restaurant--food, music, service, ambience. The only drawback was when we asked to be seated on the upper level instead of lower level where she wanted to seat us. She (Maria) retaliated by seating us at a the most remote table possible, in the very back of the restaurant. Petty on her part. Other than that it was wonderful.

    The food was again exemplary, the service was good, ambience was wonderful. In my opinion the prices were very good considering the quality of the food and overall experience. Here are three specific things that make me want to come back. 1. My wife and I love the live music and loved that it started at 6 pm, so we could list to it throughout most of our early dinner. 2. I like the wine list of very good but inexpensive wines. 3. The steaks were USDA Prime, which is not something that you see very often these days. The high quality was noticeable in my wife's Filet Mignon and greatly appreciated.

    I think I expected more from this restaurant. Food was good but not outstanding. Classic dishes. I wanted more interest and creativity in the food so maybe this wasn’t a match for us. Ambiance was a bit of a dated luxury time warp. Like we didn’t belong there and we are in our 60s.

    The restaurant was elegant looking with leather chairs and dark panels. The service and food exceptional. They also had a piano and string bass performing. The reason I went there was to have their prime rib which was very good. The restaurant is pricey so it was a splurge.

    We stayed at the Warwick hotel and thought that a steakhouse in the hotel was absolutely perfect and it was! The food was delicious and the portions were plentiful. It was pricey but all places in the city are! It was well worth the price because the portions were generous and dinner at the Rittenhouse Grill helped make our anniversary perfect.

    Wasn’t happy when the bill was presented and the 20% tip was included for a party of three . after giving credit card for payment the bill came back for signature, Although the waiter said the tip was included in The original bill there was still a spot to add tip. I never experienced a bill like this for a party of three.

    Our server just wasn't good from the get go of bringing the wrong drinks to bringing all the courses at one time. Had to have everything refired. Manager came by to get things back on track and comp'd our dessert. Feeling badly for this gentleman, I still left a tip. If you are going to spend good money on a meal, the service should be excellent to compliment the food.

    Old style steakhouse. Live music from a grand piano. Top notch service from Angel - above and beyond. Excellent steak, lamb, cream spinach and gratin potato. Lobster bisque, mud pie and ice cream sundaes were also delicious. In our opinion better than the well known chain steak houses. Prices and atmosphere will be reserved for more of a special occasion vs weekly night out. Will be back!

    My companion feasted on fillet while I partook of prime rib, both excellently prepared. The potatoes (mashed and au gratin) were equally as impressive. But the deserts were heavenly: the chocolate mousse pie is made in-house and is a study in chocolate: not overly sweet, not bitter, 100% chocolate satisfaction.

    I loved the vibe and the retro feel. The cocktails were a little weak and my prime rib was a little tough, but everyone else’s steaks were perfect. The waiter wasn’t particularly engaging and that was somewhat disappointing. Overall it was a good experience but I would likely try some place else before returning.

    This is one of Philadelphia’s classic restaurants, and it never fails to impress with the high quality of food and service. Plus, piano/bass duo music that sets the tone for an elegant meal. If you’re looking for a celebratory dinner or a lovely meal before or after the theater/orchestra/opera, this is definitely the spot. Their signature dish remains prime rib, and you can’t go wrong with filet mignon or the crab cakes. Be sure to leave room for dessert!
