    I've eaten at this steak house before but this was a sub par meal. My steak was not hot and was dry, the sides were good though. Not sure if because I used a complimentary birthday offer was tge reason for what we were served.

    We had reservations for 5:45. I forgot to request a booth. As we were being seated in a non booth I asked if their were any available. We were immediately accommodated. Once seated the serving team came to us and took our drink orders and and our food orders. Everything was going well until the food arrived. This was our third time there. All three times we have ordered the asparagus. All three times we have had to ask for the Bernaise sauce that comes with it. Seriously??? Every time??? The Prime rib was not very warm. Some parts cold. We waited for one of our servers to come over and check on our food. None came over. We tried looking for them. They seemed to be spending more time on other larger groups. With a time constraint, we could not have sent the food back and waited for more. It wasn’t til the end of our meal that someone came over. This is the second time the service has been sub par.

    Love the wedge salad! Thick creamy blue cheese dressing and lots of blue cheese and bacon! We shared the ribeye special with scallops with a side of mashed potatoes. The ribeye was blackened and cooked just right for me which is medium rare. It was juicy and delicious! The scallops were pan seared and cut like butter. Dinner is always good...as is the service.

    The ambience and service was great. However the food was not good potatoes not cooked very hard. The prime rib was thick and chewy no flavor and the crab cakes were over cooked with lots of filling very little crab meat. Really disappointed given the price of the meal.

    Prime Rib restaurant delivers fresh seafood, well aged and meticulously cut of beef cooked to perfection! I was amazed that the interior, lighting fixtures, even the tables and chairs exudes LUXURY. I didn't feel like I was in a "casino restaurant". With the low lighting, dark fabric and music tunes from an experienced pianist. There were plenty of options - I felt like a kid in a candy store. Caviar, Seafood towers, Beef Tartare and casear salad. Our server, Alyssa was Amazing. Helping us navigate through the food menu and selecting the perfect wine/cocktails/champagne with each course. I ordered the casear salad with white anchovies - it was a thing of God! The casear salad was perfectly dressed, not too much not too little dressing. My husband ordered the mushroom soup. I guess it was excellent because no words were spoken until my husband had swallowed the last of the silky soup. The soup was so flavorful and deliciously creamy with tender bites of mushroom pieces. Our main entrees, signature prime cut and the (2) 8 oz. South African lobster tails. We shared truffle mushrooms. Going to Prime Rib was like going to a symphony - it was multi sensory dining experience. The manager, bartenders and servers, sous chefs and chef are amazing! It's all about the customer experience from beginning to end. The only thing I would suggest is if the pianist could lower the volume. It was a bit loud and it was hard to have a conversation without screaming. I want to give Thanks to the wonderful team, the bartenders, servers, sous chefs, maitre'd. Thank you for making my birthday the day ever.

    I was very disappointed with the temperature and presentation of our food. The cocktails from the bar were watered down and not tasty. I was very disappointed to find out they don't offer desert treats for your Birthday. I usually go to Ruth Chris but since I'm new to the city wanted to try it out. Big mistake I will stick to Ruth Chris.

    Service was good, however for the price point of the restaurant it was not great. Food was disappointing, quality of my rib eye was just ok. At this price I would expect a high quality cut of beef, this was not that high in quality. Food was also served warm and not hot. Steak was served on a cool plate, meat was overcooked and baked potato was also not served hot. Mac and cheese was delicious. For this price level Steak 48 will continue to be my go to for a great steak dinner.

    Food excellent. Service terrible. Server was disinterested. We had an extended wait for our order to be taken, arrival of appetizer, then another wait for entrees. The steaks came without ordered sauce. Server didn't show up until we needed check to get out. Manager showed up more than server...he gave the adjacent table an appetizer for their long wait but nothing came our way except the cold sauce the manager brought out when nobody else did. Food very good but you also pay for service which was poor.

    GM is lovely. But it took a long time for food to come out and we were trying to make a concert. We each ordered a soup and a dinner and we waited and waited and after almost an hour.. they brought the soup with the dinner.. that was not right. Also, my favorite thing there is the bone in prime rib gif $75 I ordered it medium rare and it came out medium well. I told the waitress and she just said oh…
