Service was excellent, food was great but a little pricey but to be expected in a casino. Cocktails were terrific! Great place to celebrate my husband's birthday with close friends.

I found the noise level to be extremely loud for fine dining. We sat next to a group of men that were shouting and screaming throughout our entire dinner, which killed the vibe. I suggest telling individuals to keep noise down to a minimum so people can hear themselves talk. Other than that, the establishment was very nice and we enjoyed the food.

Service was perfect. Everyone checked on you water is poured constantly. The vaule is what you expect from a 5 star restaurant. Cheapest thing on the menu was 27 dollar burger. I got the seafood tower for 2 which ran 125 but great lobster king crab monster shrimp and oysters. Dollar oysters on wendsday can't beat. Will go again instrested in the tomahawk says market vaule on menu was going for 120 when I went.

Got to the restaurant was seated quickly. That was nice
Waiter immediately took away the napkin plates, I didnt even get a chance to look at it. Threw the napkins on the table. Whatever. Already a bad vibe from him as we wanted tap water rather than bottled.
Placed our order but I guess because of COVID he was standing really far from our table. So I had to scream my order at him vice versa.
Noticed he wasnt keeping the 'distance' thing with other tables.
Dinner was very mediocre. Got the cockshrimp, beef tartare, seared scallops for apps.
Entrees - prime rib that was talked down by the waiter but it was actually pretty good.
Porthouse - not that great for its value ordered it mediumrare. but it was pretty tough.
Burger - was fine. Cant really mess up a burger.
Waiter gave us the bill and never came back wanted to wrap up my steak, asked someone else. They said ok never came back. Asked the bus boy he was very helpful.
The bus boy was the nicest service received all night.
For a fine restaurant such as The Prime Rib I thought the service would be better but more like a glorified diner.

The restaurant was spacious and beautifully decorated. He staff was attentive and helpful. Food was absolutely delicious. We had the prime burger with fries, the prime rib signature cut steak (medium well), potato skins and the 5 cheese truffle macaroni and cheese. The nirvana blush was refreshing and tasty.

The ambience of the restaurant is captivating, the soft jazz music was transforming, and our server Juan was pleasant and engaging. We had Mother's Dsy Brunch there was a wide variety to choose from that was appealing both to a meater and a vegetarian in my party. I would highly recommend the crab cake Benedict and the Ciabatta French Toast. I am looking forward to going again.

Disappointing after how good the hotel spot was!
Seafood tower was not good, the smallest possible crab legs you could buy coupled with a crappy little frozen warm water lobster tail, a couple shrimp and not good oyster for $125?
If you make mashed potatoes at home, yours are way better!
Mac n cheese was ok but no match for capitol grill!
Bread basket was terrible, when south Philly is the home to great bread?
Steak was fantastic though! But $500 fir 2 entrees , tower, salad and a couple drinks is crazy expensive.

I took my mom to dinner as an early Mother’s Day gift. The waitress (Hannah) was wonderful and very much on top of everything. We had the crabmeat cocktail and tuna appetizers and they were both outstanding. My mom had the Chilean sea bass which had the tastiest sauce I’ve ever tasted with a fish. I ordered the filet mignon which was so tender it cut like butter. It was cooked perfectly at my requested medium rare. We also shared the season vegetable plate.
