It has awesome seafood too... – I've been told it's a sin, but I order seafood from their menu most of the time. The meat is never less than perfect, but I've yet to find Crab Imperial that comes even close to the rich, perfectly seasoned version that the Prime Rib serves anywhere else in Baltimore. Seafood lovers might be dissapointmented when their partners pick most steakhouses, but the freshness and expertise in preparation of the food here rivals the city's best seafood restaurants. And my 'no' answer for the good for children or large groups question is a POSITIVE response. You wouldn't want either to interfere with the perfect dining experience you'll have at the Prime Rib.
"STEAKED OUT!!" – I've eaten in many fine restaurants from N.Y. to S.F.,and to be frank, I didn't expect the quality of service I received, in Baltimore. The food was excellent, and served on time. The ambience of the restaurant was warm, but most important, the service I received from my waiter was superb, without "hovering" over us, he had the second sense to know, when he was needed. i tip my hat to a great restaurant.
P.S. you have to try the oysers!
New York in Baltimore – The decor and ambience are New York revisited. The food is excellent too. My all time favorite.
The name says it all – You have got to appreciate a restaurant that is named after a cut of beef...well maybe not, but this is where you get great steak. There are many close (Ruth Chris, Mortons, etc.) but for the ultimate experience this is the place. Fantastic cuts, generous sides, and a wonderful atmosphere bring this steak house to the top. The only thing that would make it better would be the level of service that you get at Ruth Chris.
Overpriced, overhyped UGH! – The food was EXCELLENT. However, the seating is absolutely, positively the most atrocious I've ever experienced anywhere. Every single solitary time a waiter or waitress walked past our table, they inevitably bumped up against my back. Not a problem if you're in line at McDonalds, but DEFINITELY a MAJOR problem if you're in such a highly praised dining establishment. Secondly, the tables were so closely jammed together, one could not help but wonder if the owners were desparate to squeeze as many paying customers in there as possible (I did not expect to have to pay to squeeze myself into a VW Bug like some circus clown), or just plain greedy????? I will never, ever go back, no matter how much anyone else praises their glory. I do so hope and wish they would follow in Haussner's footsteps. . . .
Ole reliable – Great entry, to a fabulous vase of flowers, and a glass bar. The tables and chairs, cast iron.. you need "Arnold" to pull them, but the Matre' d will do so no bother. Leopard rug on the floor makes you absolutely need a dry martini in just right "always" wait seating.
The sizes are are right, pricy but value, and the service always has been top notch.
It's not very big, and it's some times hard to find on a dark night in Baltimore, but I love this place.
By the way, I took my 10 year old there, and they were wonderful to him, but then he's a gourmonde'
I think the adults would prefer not seeing a child on Sat night....
Plenty for you money! – The food was excellent! Even though it is on the pricey side, we were served plenty of food. The sides were tasty and large enough to share. I would visit again!
Romantic and Elegant – As a former New Yorker, I was delighted to find elegant and consistent dining at the fabled Prime Rib when I moved to Charm City. Our every dining need was anticipated during the first and subsequent visits. The food is expertly prepared and the music helps create a romantic and lively atmosphere. Cudoes to the host and general manager for remembering even our most difficult last name.
The BEST steakhouse in Maryland – The Prime Rib has the most exceptional steaks I have ever had. The ambiance and service make the experience well worth while. 10 out of 10!
Best in the City – Service is without peer
Meats are the finest quality
Food is prepared correctly
