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.

Delicious food. Excellent service. I recommend potato skins, lobster bisque, filet mignon, and prime rib. I felt safe given that the staff kept their masks on properly.

food was overpriced for quality received - both steak and veal were bland
Caesar salad lacked any taste of dijon - garlic - or anchovie
escargot was recommended and lacked garlic taste and was bland as well

I was pleasantly surprised to find two table tops distanced for Covid reasons at the bar. Since I was dining alone I was more comfy seated in that location and surprised that they had a lovely piano player available! I enjoyed the coconut shrimp and had a lovely Caesar Salad. The bartender at this establishment was excellent at preparing super cocktails! I will definitely be back!

The man at the check-in desk we found rather rude. We arrived and he kept saying wait and he would go someplace and then he was supposed to seat us and two other men walked in and he waited on them and totally ignored us.
I do not find that behavior professional.
On the other hand our server, Marco was very nice and accommodating and the Chilean Seabass that my husband ordered was outstanding we can’t wait to have that again.

I returned to the Rittenhouse grill a few days ago and an honesty it was giving them a second chance I know the owner and mentioned to him that in two previous times the prime rib was subpar tough and grisly. He reassured me it was the same provider etc etc I'm very happy to report that the quality of the meat was back to where it had been in the past the prime rib was delicious. I will be happy to return because it has been always one of my favorites.

After all these years, still the classiest and overall best steakhouse in Philadelphia. Great steaks. Unsurpassed prime rib. And the gold standard for Clams Casino, roasted tomato soup, and potato skins. Uniquely elegant, romantic setting.

Terrible. Will
Never return. Customers had backwards hats on, high top sneakers, inappropriate revealing clothing. The place is no longer a fine dining establishment. There were three young girls climbing all
over the banquette taking provocative pictures. Management was oblivious. The prior owner (Buzz) would be appalled !!!!
Terrible experience. I was once one of the Prime
Ribs biggest fan. Sad. There are many other fine dining establishments in phila where this kind of dress/behavior isn’t allowed.

Disappointed with this experience. Not up to the standards of the previous ownership. Not happy with the restaurant forcing a gratuity especially when I always leave at least 20% or more depending on the service. Hope they improve, I have always enjoyed this spot.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Philly. The swank design harkens back to a time of exceptional fine dining. Generous cocktails. Classic tuxedo-clad waiters. And a superb and flavorful cut of meat.

Everything we had was very good and so was the service. Our only issue is the automatic 20% tip added to the bill, including on the bottle of wine and then taxed on the tip also. It was just my wife and myself not a party of 6 or more. I also think if your going to do that it should be stated on the website. menu and phone or website when making a reservation.

I went for the prime rib and it was as good as expected and large. The lamb chops were not as good as in the past and the sides were just average. A little disappointed that they automatically added 20% to the entire bill including a bottle of wine.

Great place, very clean and organized. The Staff all worked together.

Our Server was Carlos. He answered all our questions and served us with elegance and importantly he did not rush us. He let us enjoy our time and he pace our courses in a timely matter. We will be back and I well recommend The Ritten House Grill.
