A Baltimore institution! A truly fine dining experience. You will not be disappointed!
We went here for the last night of Restaurant Week. The food was delicious and the service was perfect. The restaurant was noisier and more crowded than usual because of restaurant week, but that was expected. Our meal was still flawless, regardless.
Once again, Prime Rib comes through on restaurant week. Some high end restaurants - which PR certainly is - either dumb down their menue - chicken, milk and cookies - or look down on restaurant week patrons. Not here - we were treated well, and treated to a very nice meal.
What an absolutely delightful time we had last night at The Prime Rib. Dan, our server, was welcoming and friendly. Dan’s attention to every detail to make our dining experience pleasant was nothing short of amazing. We decided on the Restaurant Week Menu – 3 courses for $35.00. We all started with salads that were crisp, fresh and perfectly dressed. Three of us had the prime rib special and one enjoyed the tenderloin. The beef was tender and succulent. We all had different desserts – two chocolate mousses, one key lime pie and one crème Brulee – all delicious. What was really special is that Dan brought me an additional dessert to celebrate my birthday – a very kind and thoughtful gesture from the restaurant. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of Maccari Saia Nero d’ Avola wine that was 1/2 price – a very tasty, full-bodied red. Thank you so much for participating in Restaurant Week.
Excellent experience as always.
I have been to the Prime Rib on many occasions, this was Restaurant week and I think it was a little under staffed. the food was good as usual, I tried something that I had not taste there before, which was the imperial crab, it was delicious. I think we were cheated out of some sides, but I didn't say anything. The menu said 2 sides with your meal for the $35 and two people had the RWM so we should have gotten 4 sides. Chris was our waiter who usually does an excellent job, but like I said it was very crowded. Chris brought our check I gave him cash of $140, and a credit card which he was told to take off $100, Chris brought the check and the money back and said to recount the cash because if he was to keep the change as I said do, then there was a mistake because he thought he deserved a bigger tip then $10, and I thought he did too. I made the mistake, I thought I had given him $160. I think that was rude and embarassing.
Where does it say that I have to tip you at all, although I would never do that, but it was the principle. There are some people who never tip and will fuss you out if you ask. Anyway, when the receipt was brought back, the entire amount of the check was charged on the young lady card, so we told him, and he took it back, the receipt was presented again, this time charged $130, so we had to take it back again to charge it correctly for $100. Yes I will visit again, but I just could not believe the nerve of someone telling a customer to recount their money , because he did not have enough tip, and deserved more, when in reality the other parties didn't think he did.
Good Luck Chris on getting the tips you really want.
My wife and I have been going here for over 45 years and it never disappoints. If you want prime rib or steak this is the place to go.
Visit the restaurant for the Baltimore Restaurant Event.
Our waiter and servers were all spectacular. Food was wonderful also. Three cheers..dilly dilly
Definitely would believe it if I was told that this location was the inspiration for the prime steakhouse at maryland Live. Checkerboard tile floors, a large piano with a perfectly chosen live music duo, everyone well dressed, and a high class appearance overall if entering from the main entrance. Do not enter from the garage or you’ll have the opposite experience. Expect black chairs black colored walls and an overall old-fashioned theme to the place, perfect for a date. however, value for the money is just not there in my opinion. Would consider other find steakhouses in Baltimore such as the capital Grille or other fine restaurants such as Tagliata, Cinghiale, Ouzo Bay, and the black olive for finer food.
