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.

Celebrated my mother's birthday there. Ambiance was wonderful, service was attentive once we got started, food excellent choices and all delicious. Piano was a nice touch, maybe a could have been a little softer as background music to not impair conversation (especially with an older adult with some hearing issues). Look forward to returning!

The restaurant was quite full, and this may have been the reason the service was questionable. After waiting a long time to be acknowledged by a waiter, one showed up and asked if we wanted drinks or wine. One member of our party ordered a drink. It never came, and another waiter appeared who seemed to be assigned to our table, too. He asked if we wanted drinks. The cocktail was re-ordered. It was to be on the rocks and wasn't when it finally arrived. It had to be sent back to be corrected. One person's medium rare filet had to be sent back because it was too rare, and my Dover sole was slightly warm not warm or hot. I chose not to have my Dover sole reheated because fish reheated will become mushy. At times we seemed to have two waiters, very pleasant young men, who tried hard but did not seem to communicate with each other. Consequently, we were asked the same questions by each.

Excellent service and food. Wine list is pricier than other high end restaurants I've been to but a good selection nonetheless. Live piano music so if you don't want to be seated near the piano, let the hostess know.

Not worth it. By no means am I cheap, but this place is definitely not worth the money. I suspect there may have been something going on behind the scenes that we were not made aware of. Perhaps they were short staffed? Our waiter was a nice guy, but not a great waiter. He was a college student, and not an experienced server. The wait for the main course seemed eternal, and when it came, only 6 of the 7 meals were served. Another 5 minutes passed before I received my meal. My wife had an empty wine glass in front of her for most of the evening, and I had to ask another server that passed by for my drink order that had been forgotten. All things being equal, there are many better options out there. The appetizers and desserts were good, but the entrees were average. The timing was way off, and the food was not hot. It seemed as if it was everyone's first day on the job. At $842 for dinner and tip for a party of 7, this effort was not good enough.

Prime Rib needs no introduction. It is the best steakhouse you can find. Come and get the signature prime rib and see for yourself. It’s one of a kind.

Absolutely great meal. The steak was like butter with great flavor, escargot perfect and my memory of dessert was obscured by great wine.

We Never felt rushed and relaxed after dinner and enjoyed a great dessert. Thank you all, we will be back!

Our experience began with misinformation on the Prime Rib website. As we arrived for our reservation, the website said we can take advantage of valet parking at the Warwick hotel. When we pulled up to the hotel, the attendant informed us if we weren’t staying in the hotel they wouldn’t valet our car and prime rib’s website is incorrect. After entering the restaurant, we were greeted and had a great interaction with coat check. Once seated, that’s where it took a turn for the worst. Our waiter, Vinny/Vincent provided the worst service we’ve ever had. His service alone makes me not want to return and makes me think of I would be treated the same by other servers. We received no introduction, specials/explanation of the menu, suggestions on wines, etc. Yet, the table directly behind us received a “performance” to say the least. Which to note is the only reason why I even know his name, because of what he said to the other table “call me Vinny, like from My Cousin Vinny”. Service was completely different between the 2 tables and very disrespectful. After this experience, I don’t think I would return or recommend this location to anyone.

Used to be a great restaurant,but apparently they have fallen in bad times. Service was generally confused, food was very poorly coursed, and to top it off they entree was a much diminshed serving of their prime rib that was wayyyyy overcooked. Used to be a place I enjoyed. Will not be going back.
