Buckhead
About the restaurant
This lively steakhouse in the center of Buckhead has been voted “Best Steakhouse” 13 years, by Jezebel Magazine readers’. New York Prime has been a sought after hot spot for any night out, thanks to the lively bar and USDA prime-only menu. From barrel cut filets to top-of-the-line cooking techniques, every detail counts at this powerhouse, old-school steak joint, but what sets them apart further is their courtyard dining space and private room. We'll cheers to that!

Treated my husband to a top rate steak dinner for his birthday. Shawn, our waiter, could not have been better. As always NY Prime was at the top of their game with the food and service.

My husband and I had reservations on Saturday at Dirty Rascal. Upon arrival, we were able to be seated right away. We originally wanted to be seated outside, but couldn't do to a buyout. So we were seated in the booth area inside. Once seated, it took awhile to be greeted by our server; however, I don't fault her because they seemed understaffed. She arrived and asked to take our appetizer order. We put in an order for the crispy St. Louis ravioli. We wanted to put in a drink order as well, but we weren't asked at the time. Our ravioli came out and it was hot and crispy. We thoroughly enjoyed this dish. Still waiting to place our drink orders, we decided the next time our server came, we needed to order everything at once. She eventually came back and we ordered an old fashioned, margarita italiano, the lobster spaghetti (only served on Friday-Saturday), and the scallop & lemon risotto. It didn't take long for our drinks to come out and they were pretty good. Shortly thereafter, our food came out. Thankfully, it was hot, as I read other reviews of food being served cold. So I happy about that. Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience and we hope the service will be better to up those stars to a 5. Looking forward to dining again in the future.
