The Lobster Santiago is absolutely delicious. It's why I come to the Prime Rib.

Paying this much money I assumed that it would be a delightful experience. Boy was I wrong.

I ordered prime rib medium rare, but it came out medium-well. I ordered the potato skins with bacon and cheese - and it came with neither.

Our waiter had them redo the skins, but they were hard as rocks since he clearly had them cooked again.

The waiter was lazy and made no attempt to get our orders right.

I’m appalled that people go to this place and spend their hard earned money on crap food I wouldn’t serve to my dog!

The best steakhouse in Washington. Outstanding food, service, décor (art deco). Piano/bass music exceptional. Not cheap, of course. But creates an experience you will not have at Capital Grille, BRT, etc.
