Exceptional as it always is! The best prime rib, service and ambiance!
Larry, thank you for the great evening!
From the time we were seated, our experience was stellar. My husband and I were celebrating our shared birthday, and that was acknowledged immediately. The food and drinks were outstanding, and the service was unbelievable. Tubo (please forgive the misspelling), our server, was awesome. We felt special all evening, including when we were served crème brûlée with candles! We were seated by the piano, and the music was wonderful. This was by far the best dining experience we’ve had. Kudos!
Our family favorite restaurant. The Prime Rib steak is a favorite and always delicious. Along with the Filet Mignon, Lamb Chops, Salmon, and Lobster all absolutely cooked to perfection and delicious as well. Lobster Mac and Cheese and Asparagus are our favorite shareable sides and definitely save room for dessert!
Outstanding in every way especially the service. I love the dress code, it’s nice to see people dressing up for dinner. The food was amazing! This is my favorite restaurant overall!
Always a nice evening with music!
We were seated right next to the piano and bass player and it was amazing. At first I was worried the music would be too loud to hold a conversation but it wasn’t an issue at all. The service was great, the ambiance was incredible and the food was out of this world. We love The Prime Rib and will certainly be back.
Great environment and the food was great, only bad part was our server who seemed to have an attitude with us for no reason. Ruined the full experience. If you are going to work at an expensive restaurant don’t come to work disgruntled.
The Prime Rib knocks it out of the park again. It's a quiet, clubby restaurant with live piano music, excellent service and classic cuisine. It's a little old fashioned, but in the best possible way. And they don't coast on the food quality. We had crab cocktails, and my mom had dover sole almandine, which she pronounced as superb. I had steak au poivre, and it was great. We had fries and creamed spinach side dishes and creme brulee for desert. A great visit again.
Always the very best on all levels, could not select a better place to dine and enjoy the ambiance, with service beyond expectations and the food consistently the best. Such a class operation.
Charming and attentive wait staff. I never object to paying a premium price for food and beverages.
However, this was overpriced to say the least. Small drinks and mediocre food. Atmosphere was lovely. Unfortunately we won’t be back.
It was a magically perfect evening to finally be back after the pandemic hit over 1-1/2 years ago and to celebrate the birthdays of both women present. The food was as delicious as ever and the service was impeccable.
I also wish to extend special kudos to the pianist. His extensive repertoire is incredibly large, and his music is never disruptive of conversation but always enhancing and complementary.
Certainly the most elegant restaurant in town. The Prime Rib never lowers its standards - perfect service, attentive but not intrusive, incredible food, a duo playing softly - we were in heaven.
As always the food was perfect, starting with the bread and the Cosmopolitan. The rack of lamb and mashed potatoes were seasoned perfectly in other words using only just the right amount of salt and no other interfering spices such as rosemary or fennel as lesser restaurants do.
Not a huge fan. The Prime rib was quite bland and the New York Strip was practically inedible. The sides were ok but nothing stands out.
The server was just ok and the overall service was just ok.
The restaurant was actually just al little boring for my taste.
Disappointed in the food. Will not be back.
The bread and filet was amazing.
Wonderful in all respects. Smooth. Quiet and polite. Very attentive service. Yes, it is a bit of a time warp…but it remains impeccable. Fine dining.
It’s an excellent meal enjoyed by everyone at the table.
The Prime Rib is the best beef restaurant I've ever eaten in around the USA.
We leave a favorite table; food always high quality and ambiance, perfect.
Excellent food, pleasant attentive staff/ lovely evening.
As always, great service, fabulous food and a beautiful room
Love the piano player
Best steak house in town
Great service. Philip was particularly attentive and we appreciated the exceptional service.
This is a great spot for date night when you want to dress up and go out. Live piano music filling the room and serenading guests during dinner, was a great backdrop for a sophisticated atmosphere and delicious food. Our server was outstanding! She had fabulous wine recommendations that were spot on pairings for our meals. Great place.
Exquisite food. Prime rib tastes amazing. Choices of sides are all great. Service is nice. Overall, a fine dining experience!
The food and service were amazing and we loved the piano
Wonderful as always. Perfect for any special event.
Outstanding all around!
This long time jewel continues to please. Our server, Samanunu, maintained the perfect balance between service and unobtrusiveness. Any dining suggestions she made exceeded expectations. Once again the Prime Rib proved to be the perfect venue for a wonderful evening.
Excellent in every way! Top notch, elegant dining. A wonderful experience all around.
Excellent ambiance and the food was outstanding. Service was the best and the staff treated us as if we were VIP’s. Definitely recommend if you are i. The DC area and want an upscale experience.
Wonderful in all respects! Our server Tupo was perfect.
The servers are very nice they pull out your chair for you they do whatever you need to have a great meal. There is a piano player playing nice relaxing music overall its a great place for an anniversary or a date
Some things never change. This place is old school cocktails and dinner place, love the service and food. Everything was perfect.
Truly an amazing upscale Restaurant.The food is the excellent and the service over the top. The best prime rib in town!!!
Celebrating my birthday abd our anniversary same date October 8.
This old favorite has continued to be the go to place for the highest quality steaks. And the potato skins are still the best in the city. The dining room has been upgraded during the pandemic and the service remains highly professional. It's still a DC gem.
Great place for special occasions! Highly recommend!
Not the best prime rib I have ever had but maybe it is personal preference. The only other relatively high end place to compare this to is Lawry's in chicago, which is better. If you like a fancy place that makes you dress up for a dining experience, then this is for you. However, that is not me and I have had better prime rib at less fancy establishments. You will get a good meal here, but you will pay for it.
I made reservations at The Prime Rib for my husband’s Birthday. After almost losing him to kidney failure (he has a new kidney now) this celebration was one to remember.
The service, food, ambience, and music was something for the books. This is a 100% Diamond Restaurant. Love it. We will certainly return to celebrate more occasions.
My son’s birthday and first time he ate at a real steakhouse so it may as well be the best In metro DC. The reason I marked value in the middle is because you don’t go here for value. It’s expensive. And it should be. It’s truly one of the best steak houses in the region.
