Everything was excellent—food,service atmosphere etc. you know what you are going to get when you go to the Prime Rib but they do it all very well...
Old School, Class, Elegance . . . . . .all words that describe the staff, ambience, service and quality of The Prime Rib! If you would like to enjoy an evening with your spouse, friends or business acquaintances, The prime Rib will provide you an unforgettable experience.
I recommend getting the wedge salad, bone-in ribeye, Sherry roasted mushrooms with Cipollini onions & the famous potato skins.
The Prime Rib still has the touch after 35 years.
Always a pleasure to go.
The food was fantastic, service was perfect. Was on a weekend trip from NYC to celebrate husband’s birthday. Got the huge, crab stuffed lobster, and he got the lamb — both excellent. We enjoyed speaking to the friendly manager when he checked in on us, and then he surprised us with a little birthday treat! So kind. Great dining experience. Very luxurious feeling, perhaps in part because of the limited capacity.
Loved the leopard print rug! Somehow it works.
Larry was phenomenal! Food and drink also excellent. Great to be back for a wonderful meal!
Peaceful and serene.
Don’t think we’ll go back. During Covid I’d expect extra cleaning measures. We were sat at a dirty table with stains and crumbs all over the table cloth. Drinks were good and service was nice. Steak was average but seafood was bland. Plenty of open tables but sat people very close to us.
The Prime Rib has been a long time favorite of ours. Fabulous food and wine in an elegant atmosphere with impeccable service. The perfect dining experience!
The Prime Rib is an amazing DC institution . It’s the real deal!
My favorite restaurant in DC for years
Amazing time, service is awesome
Great experience. The service and food was delicious
Graceful place to have a good meal. Looking forward to the return of the music to complete the grand days of old feel.
We dined here for my girlfriends birthday and loved it! She was completely blown away by the food and ambience! Fantastic experience. Our waiter was great and made sure we enjoyed our dinner with fast and good service! We will be back!👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
Great restaurant and service - a throw back to an earlier time! They should have a phone they bring to your table. LOVE this DC Institution!
Always a treat.
We celebrated my Dad's 90 birthday and it was a wonderful evening. The staff was so attentive to our needs and the food was exceptional as it has been for the past 40 years. Still our favorite restaurant in the city.
Great food, prime rib, filet, and pepper sirloin were all fabulous. The service was fantastic.
Food was disappointing for a restaurant that expensive. It is not on par with The Capital Grill, Morton's or The Palm. At least this time that we went.
The dinner was good. We were seated immediately upon arrival! Excellent customer service as well
It was an amazing romantic dinner, everything was amazing although my steak tasted more like a burger than an actual steak. But still quite amazing.
Absolutely the best! I would highly recommend The Prime Rib for ANY occasion. The service is FIRST RATE. The food, unmatched by any. And, during these COVID times, The Prime Rib provides an extremely safe dining experience.
As always, PERFECT !!!! Except for not having my favorite corn...lol, everything was totally on point and of course I will be back again in a few months. You guys are the best. See you soon and please have my corn...lol
Hands down the best restaurant in DC. Impeccable service
I loved my experience there !
I was raised by parents who knew all the best things about Manhattan. The Prime Rib is a perfect facsimile of the best of the best city in the world. A wonderful peacefulness fills my being as soon as I enter the doorway. That elegant ambiance of the 40's envelops me and I feel the classy joys of that time with my parents. Not only is the service and food exceptional, so is the music. I was disappointed that the fabulous pianist was not performing last Saturday. I long for his return. If I could go only one time a year to a restaurant, I would go to The Prime Rib. In the immortal words of Cole Porter.."It's the tops!"
Beautiful restaurant and ambiance, but the food was just ok. Nothing to really write home about. My pecan pie was a little burnt.
Service was a little slow but allowed us to enjoy a very pleasant evening.
Great experience but patrons are starting to dress down more than they used to. Hunting vest should not be acceptable as a sport coat. The food service is great as always.
Fantastic like always !
They took great COVID precautions and we felt very safe .
Each course was better than expected. the dog salad was amazing and my wife said the crab cake was one of the best she ever had. The service was fantastic.
Perfect service at this DC institution. And they do social distancing exactly the right way; why in the world these restaurants are being forced to close is beyond me.
Great place for steaks. With the old school steak house fell.
We celebrated our birthdays which are 4 days apart. Impeccable service, and dinner was fantastic. Thank you!
The host was so welcoming and nice. The waiters were amazing. Excellent service. The food was great!
Always a great experience on all fronts - the ambiance, the service and the food. Nothing better than how this place puts us in the mood for a great meal and always delivers!
