Dining at The Prime Rib is always a pleasure, no more so than during Baltimore Restaurant Week. The supremely professional staff makes dining here a delight.

Dined at Prime Rib since they offered a reasonable Restaurant Week menu, and their regular prices are far above what I would expect to pay at a place outside of, say, NYC ($56 for just a fillet?). Although the food and service were very good, don't think I would dine there outside of Restaurant Week (crowds notwithstanding).

Food was good old-fashioned steak restaurant. The Caesar salad would be better if it had authentic egg-based dressing and the choice of anchovies. Servies was a tiny slow but friendly. I'll give them a break. It was restaurant week. Not entirely sure it's worth the value. Still, I'd go again.

Wonderful as always! Obviously, there's no place that matches the elegance of the decor, but the food never disappoints and the service is impeccable. We are fortunate to have a restaurant like this still here. If you happen to get a reservation during Restaurant Week, it is probably the best deal anywhere!

Our dinner was. outstanding! The food was perfectly prepared and the service was excellent. While at some high end restaurants, the server can come across as "stuffy;" that was definitely not the case at The Prime Rib. Our server was very professional and made us feel comfortable. A really superb dining experience.

Baltimore's Prime Rib restaurant is my husband's favorite. He has taken many clients there. The pictures are interesting Art Deco in style. The service is outstanding, and the food is to "live for!" We dined there for Baltimore's restaurant week. You just can't beat the 3-course meal for a set price anywhere! We split everything from the appetizers (tomato bisque-delicious and house salad) to the main entrees (petite filet Mignon--buttery smooth and crab imperial-full of large lump crab meat-and delicious) to dessert (key lime pie and chocolate mouse pie). Live piano music adds to the ambiance! Our thoughtful and attentive waiter, Aaron, brought the food piping hot and already divided for our convenience. The bread was warm, crunchy on the outside, and soft on the inside. We also love that The Prime Rib offers complementary valet parking. That is the icing on the cake that makes this inner-city fine-dining restaurant accessible in additional to being affordable. Thank you for a lovey evening and we will return this Friday for an encore dinner.

I went with a gift card, service was wonderful, they keep the place dark but it's for the ambiance. Live music when I went, a pianist and sometimes cellist. The food was great except for the creamed spinach, it had a strange addition of nutmeg which my friend tells me is an older preparation of the dish which is fine, just not my taste. All in all a great place for a special occasion.

The food is incredible and you can’t beat restaurant week prices. We’ve tried all the “places you HAVE to try” and every time my husband and I ask ourselves why we didn’t go back to the Prime Rib. There isn’t a restaurant in Baltimore that touches this place! It’s perfection every time!

We got a coupon in the mail for the Prime Rib and decided to make a date night of it expecting a retro vibe but modern steakhouse meal. What ensued was an overpriced time warp from 1982. The room was windowless and dark. Service was on plates that were chipped and seemed out of a college dining hall. The steak was properly cooked but under-seasoned. Lobster soup was devoid of meat and seemed as it it was percolating in a carafe in the back for any rube unfortunate enough to pay through the nose for it. I ordered surf and turf at the market price and was gouged to the tune of $90 for a small filet and lobster tail. The fact that this place is still open is a sign the dining scene in Baltimore still has far to go.

Absolutely the best of the best. Forget Mortons' or Ruth Chris. This has it all. Food absolutely above top notch. The waiter was ol' school and very nice and accommodating. Prime Rib (hence the name) was so perfect, I couldn't have made it at home any better. Share the potato, it's about 2 pounds on its own.
