Steakhouse
Gargantuan cuts of prime beef, extra thick chops, and simply prepared fresh seafood are the straightforward offerings of this steakhouse that evokes the supper clubs of Manhattan in the 1940's. Leopard print carpeting, black lacquered walls trimmed in brass and tuxedoed waiters complete the elegant atmosphere, featuring live piano and bass nightly. Dress code is business casual.

Food and service were excellent. Meat tends to be on rare side. Better to order one level up. It's a lovely atmosphere with a piano player. You can have a conversation! I have been there many times and will return and recommend it to friends.

The prime rib was delectable: so tender and well-flavored. The onion soup hit all the right notes: savory, oniony, and satisfying. The sides were delicious: very cream mashed potatoes, crunchy potato skins, and a good selection of vegetables. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. The elegant, calming setting was perfect for our anniversary dinner.

As a frequent business and leisure traveler, I’ve been fortunate to dine in really good restaurants. This restaurant was simply excellent, from start to finish the service by Vinny Sciarrino was superb, one of the best dining experiences we’ve had. Great job!!

As always a delicious meal was had by all. The crab cake is a must! One thing I would recommend when ordering the prime rib is I would stick to the smaller cut. All of my previous visits I had the smaller cut and it was tender and perfect. This time I tried the larger cut which is a quite a bit thicker, but I found it to be slightly tougher and not as tasty. It could have been a one time thing but I am going to stick with the smaller cut for future visits.

The service was great!

Always pleased with the Prime Rib! Quiet room with enjoyable piano playing nearby. We could hear our friends and have a wonderful conversation.
The food, although not unusual, was solid, tasty, good quality.
The shrimp cocktail had large, tasty and firm shrimp. Onion soup was a bit disappointing. Lamb chops were tender and very tasty. Loved the mint jelly, haven’t seen that in years! Strawberry cheesecake was good, not exceptional. Apple pie was delicious. Decaf coffee was excellent. Overall very pleasing meal.

My partner and myself went on a date to the prime rib last Saturday. It was our first time dining there, and I had a great meal. Our servers were very attentive, made great recommendations. The food was great as well. We got the potato skins, shrimp cocktail, my partner had the fillet Oscar, and I had a New York, both of which were cooked to perfection and seasoned beautifully. The cocktails were perfect, and they even gave us a complementary mud pie, which was a perfect ending evening. Would definitely go back.

I have eaten at the "Prime Rib" many times.Each time it was excellent.This time it was poor.My tomato soup and cheese cake dessert was excellent BUT my prime rib was fatty and stringy and my lobster tail was murdered (way over-cooked )

Our server was very professional. The ambiance was modern and romantic. The food was good. The bar was well stocked with a cute set up. The price was a bit pricey. We had a group of 9 people and the appetizers was not enough for us all. Some were not able to try all of the appetizers.

The service excellent but the quality of the food was very underwhelming. The green beans tasted like they had added an artificial smoke flavor. The prime rib had no marbling, thus little flavor. Very expensive for average quality food.

Everything was very good. The only small hiccup was the fact that they said they had called me to confirm my reservation and I never got a call, and no voicemail was left, so upon arrival we had a slight wait for our table.

We celebrated a steak lover's birthday on Saturday night, and The Prime Rib is his favorite place for a juicy, tasty steak. I enjoyed the veal chop and the vegetable options were great too. Love the piano/bass music. Prices are up there with other top restaurants, but you don't mind because the food and the service is stellar.
