Went there while attending a conference in philly. The Signature salad was a refreshing and tasty start to the meal. Can't go wrong with fresh ingredients and a blue cheese dressing. The Signature Prime Rib is among the best piece of beef I have ever...More

Quiet piano music. Pleasant waiters, especially Alex. Subtle decor. Tables separated enough for privacy. Easy to talk at the table, but not too quiet. Excellent prime rib and lamb. Moderately expensive but worth it. On Sunday, you can bring your own wine without a fee....More

Travelled to Philadelphia for business by myself. Had a great dinner out at Prime Rib listening to some great jazz music followed by a good pianist. The staff was efficient and friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The Ahi Tuna was phenomenal!

is located in the Warwick hotel. Was exhausted from a day of travel and wanted a non-roomservice meal. Unfortunately, this probably could have been a room service meal. Service was very good but prices were really high for the quality.

There's nothing like a good old school steak house that knows exactly how to please. The food was perfect, as were the drinks. The service impeccable. You can't go wrong. Nice place for a special occasion.

Jackets not required but most gentlemen wear them. Classic food from the Escargot to the Prime Ribs, prepared excellently. Large cocktails and plenty of dark wood and leather.

This is my favorite restaurant in the city. The room is classic and elegant. The service always the best, friendly, and accommodating. The food outstanding. It's a steak house but the seafood is equally good. The bar is fully stocked. My favorites: Start with the...More

Gargantuan cuts of prime beef, extra thick chops, and simply prepared fresh seafood are the straightforward offerings of this steakhouse that evokes the supper clubs of Manhattan in the 1940's. Leopard print carpeting, black lacquered walls trimmed in brass and tuxedoed waiters complete the elegant atmosphere, featuring live piano and bass nightly. Dress code is business casual.
