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!

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.
