Even though the fact we were celebrating a birthday was noted on the reservation,nothing was said until after we had desert and were paying the bill. The manager came over, wished a happy birthday to the person celebrating , apologize and offered us a piece of chocolate mousse pie which we declined since we already had desert. It would have been nice if he had comped the desert we had already eaten.

Probably fine dining rather than mid range and the prices to match, but the quality certainly justifies the price. Great for business meetings and romantic meals but definitely a more formal dining experience

The Prime Rib is consistently outstanding. The valet parking is free, the food is fantastic, the service is highly professional, and the ambiance is old school high class. What's not to like? You may pay top dollar for your special occasion experience, but its worth every penny!

Wonderful food, the Filet Mignon is amazing, definitely my new favorite place to have Steak in Maryland. We had dinner here for my birthday, and the service couldn't have been any better, absolutely fantastic. My husband had the New York strip and he was equally satisfied. The complimentary dessert was so delicious, it was the Chocolate Mousse Pie, and I will definitely order it again the next time I come here. Thank you so much for making this a special birthday for me!

We had a $50 coupon that my husband received for his birthday, and we had a gift card, so dinner was, for all intents and purposes, free. But it was really delicious. I had Chesapeake Bay rockfish, a baked sweet potato, and asparagus with hollandaise. My husband had a prime rib steak and creamed spinach. We both shared a lovely bottle of Justin cabernet from Paso Robles (where we had visited the winery a few years ago). It's a special occasion kind of place, but well worth it.

I have been going to the Prime Rib for years but hadn’t been in a long time. I was disappointed that so many patrons were so badly dressed, including a couple at the bar in jeans! Given the prices, you’d think people would treat a meal there with a bit more finesse. The food is. Sry tasty, though, though the portions are enormous!

This is our third visit here. To be fair, the other two visits exceeded expectations.
From drink & appetizer to dinner & dessert, everything was perfect on our two previous visits. This Saturday we went with 6 people for my daughter's birthday. Server was attentive initially. Table was ready. Salads were great. Lobster bisque was congelled and cold. The main entrees were not even average. They were not good. 4 Prime Ribs, only one wasn't overcooked. Ordered MR and they were well done like shoe leather, no pink and almost no au jus. You could tell they we prepared on a different day and reheated. One of the prime ribs was perfectly cooked but not fresh. They did offer to exchange them. They removed one from the bill. I do not care about the cost, if I did we would not have gone there. I expect that the food will be prepared correctly the first time. There server never should have even brought them to the table. They also brought the dinner side out with the appetizers by accident as well. I asked for a special dessert for my daughter, the waiter obliged and brought it over buy never offered anyone else at the table dessert. After he dropped hers mousse cake with a candle, we sang Happy birthday (he did not participate) and brought the bill. They were definitely off their game. Not anywhere close to our previous experiences at this establishment. Disappointed.

My wife and I give our adult children the gift of fine dining and try to introduce them to a long standing Baltimore Restaurant that they don’t know exist. This year it was The Prime Rib and they did not disappoint. Every one of our appetizers and mains were excellent and the kids were raving about the presentation and quality of the food. Service was also first class. The only reason I rated value as a 4 instead of 5 is that this is a very expensive restaurant but we absolutely got what we paid for and I would do it again. The Prime Rib remains the best restaurant for old school fine dining in Baltimore.

Food and service were excellent; however, tables are very close together so you feel cramped with difficulty walking between tables. Had my arm bumped numerous times by passing waiters. Noise can also be elevated. While we both thoroughly enjoyed our main course selections, we were disappointed with the clams casino appetizer. The clams were very tiny and certainly did not warrant $18.00. Bread pudding dessert was terrific!

It’s a little tight in the dining room and we were sitting next to where the wait staff kept their trays. Overall I really enjoyed the experience. The staff was over the top friendly. If I make reservations again I will ask to not be seated next to the tray area.

It was lovely. I was not that impressed with the renovations and my leather chair was ripped and threadbare—not what I expect with a $250 meal. Not sure what else was needed but for a basic steak dinner the price was pretty ridiculous. We can afford meals like this but we probably would go elsewhere in the future. Felt like it was resting on past laurels and needs updating in menu selections.

We went for the band, which was stupendous — but were happily surprised by the food. Yes, expensive — but also very good. Try the Imperial crab and the caesar salad!
