The Prime Rib does not change and that is a good thing. everything on the menu is excellent. The service is top notch, very attentive to your needs and not noticeable when you don't need them. My "go to" restaurant when everything needs to be the best.

Dining at The Prime Rib is always an enjoyable experience!!! The service is stellar and the food absolutely delicious. It almost feels like stepping back in time when you dine there...and you don't get that from a lot of restaurants these days! Definitely recommend!!!!

Once again it was an enjoyable dining experience with good friends. On our prior visit the prime rib was below par, way below par for this establishment. They have remedied that and I very much enjoyed the portion that was served. Our server, Tommy, was wonderful and entertaining. We would not hesitate to recommend The Original Prime Rib to those looking for a classy place to have a fine dinner.

We had an early reservation and we were sat immediately. Greeted promptly by our server John. Courses were spaced but timely. Food was delicious and perfectly cooked. Valet wait was less than 2 min. Would definitely recommend.

As always, The Prime Rib provided excellent food & service. Even the valets were exceptionally kind & attentive to the needs of the elderly. One member of our group prefers her steak well done while the remaining three of us enjoy it medium rare to rare. Because it was restaurant week, every table was filled. Despite this, our waiter didn't rush us to finish. I was surprised that he served dessert before we asked for coffee. I am used to the wait staff asking if coffee is desired before serving dessert.

It's restaurant week in Baltimore and The Prime Rib is celebrating! We got the house salad and tomato soup, filet mignon, and key lime pie and chocolate cake. We also got the crab lumps on top of the entry. The whole meal - down to the bread and butter - was fabulous. Parking was very convenient and complementary. We will be back this weekend.

The food was tasty, but very basic. I ordered the House Salad- not much flavor from the dressing. The filet mignon was cooked just as I asked and very tasty. The mashed potatoes and creamed spinach lacked seasoning. I ordered a pomegranate margarita- very good, no complaints. The complimentary bread tasted very good and freshly baked. Lastly, the creme brûlée was not too sweet, very creamy, and tasty. The service was okay- nothing that stood out or above and beyond. I even overheard the table beside us talking to the manager about the waiter’s subpar service- I could agree. Overall, a decent date night at a Baltimore staple and nice to participate in Restaurant Week.

Went for restaurant week, and was surprised how high quality it was. Restaurants in this town seem to really be hit or miss on restaurant week, but Prime Rib was spectacular.

Restaurant week is such a bargain. All of the ambiance, service and food at an affordable price. This will always be my “go to” special occasion restaurant. The whole experience is worth every penny and it’s actually reasonably priced when you compare to other premium steakhouses. The swanky atmosphere makes for a perfect dinner. Can’t wait to go back. Ps. The Manhattans were outstanding!

Visited this restaurant during Baltimore Restaurant Week. The menu had excellent selections and the price was exceptional. The service was great. The food was superb. My only complaint was the spacing in the dining room. The table were placed very close together. My head was bumped twice by a waiter. Otherwise, no complaints.

We usually go a couple times a year but this was the worst experience . Our server delivered the meal which was not prepared properly and failed to return until 20 minutes later. Crab imperial was beautiful lump crab but no imperial. Prime rib steak was supposed to be medium but came out rare. Creamed spinach had no seasoning. Very disappointing.

I’ve been coming to this location for 38 years this evening I had a family of six with me three of us were very much not happy with our steaks however we did not send them back also three others had a tremendous amount of shells in the crab cocktail the service was OK everything else was great just a really bad experience when you spend $800 on dinner plus the tip you really expect much better

Dining at The Prime Rib is always special but we were even more thrilled this time when we asked in advance to sit by the piano and it worked out. It felt like we had a private concert. If there is a better place for prime rib, we have not found it. Also, don't miss the oysters, they are gigantic and amazing!
