Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Prime Rib. You’ve done the world some good today.

Good Food, Awful Service

Great food, step up from Capriccio, the prior tennant. Good coffee. Great soups and sandwiches. in particular, the homemade chips are excellent. BUT, the service is absolutely horrible. They have very well meaning, but not so bright staff. They're all quite nice, but screw up my order almost every time. Be it a toasted bagel, or a sandwich, inevitably something is messed up. I'll get asked ""was that to go or... view more

got kicked

Went to see a friend at 12:30 am... I was in my most possible art-rebel clothes... I was reading After Effects and Color Correction the whole evening prior to my going to Prime Rib... there was no one there except my friend, my other friend that was extremely drunk and two more people. My extremely drunk friend was very annoying... I just grabbed a beer or two and talked to my other friend meanwhile trying to peace m... view more

Overhyped, cheesy decor, bad service, bad food

I'll try to keep this short, since my full rant could easily take more than the 2000 characters I'm given. The atmosphere at The Prime Rib is not high-class; it is tacky, lame, and too old fashioned for a restaurant that's only been open in Philadelphia since 1997. The quality of the food ranged from mediocre to inedible (seriously, the knife couldn't cut the leather, I mean, steak). The service was atrocious (if ... view more

A high class experience with Philadelphias high society

My family and I wanted to go to an excellent steakhouse that could cater to my sisters vegetarian needs. When we got there ofcourse we were ceverely underdressed but that was fine. Seating was prompt, they had my father's favorite appetizer, escargot and it was all excellent. I have been to Ruth Chris and Mortons and many of the finest steakhouses across the country and I would pick this over Ruth Chris anytime. The ... view more

Exceptional Experience

We went there for dinner with friends. We found the food to be exceptional and the service was excellent. The decor was delightful and we enjoyed the live music. Overall, we had a very enjoyable evening.

Above average but nothing amazing

Prime Rib is great if you want to go to a high-end restaurant but expect servere ""snoodiness"" in the atmosphere. I had the New York Strip which was again, above average but nothing spectacular while my bf had the Filet Mignon which was somewhat bland. Service was great though- in and out in an hour, tops. Lot of old-timers. To me, not a good enough place for a special occasion night. And btw, the Lobster Bisqu... view more

Classic steak house food executed well

I had the opportunity to enjoy this restaurant during Philly's Restaurant Week, which was a great deal... The food was excellent - the roasted tomato soup was very good, as was the prime rib - an enormous piece of meat that was very tender and flavorful. I loved the creamed spinach side. They also make a great dirty martini here! And though it was restaurant week and we had a large group, the service was great - ... view more

When you want to feel civilized

Sure it is expensive, but it's worth every penny. I visit the bar regularly, and the tuxedoed staff is courteous, knowledgeable and give you their full attention. But for the ultimate in indulgence ask for a banquette in the main dining room (bring a jacket gentlemen). I don't eat steak very much, but I found myself loving the Prime Rib. (Yes it is as BIG as they say). The creamed spinach and mashed put my mother to ... view more
