My husband & I ate at the Baltimore location of The Prime Rib. We went during Restaurant Week to celebrate my birthday on 8/11/09

Pros: the food was fantastic. I didn't personally care much for the dressing on the caesar salad but my husband loved it (he thinks they make the dressing from scratch). For me it had too much of a vinegar taste followed by a spicy taste (neither flavor is one I care for personally). The bread they give you was great(I'm not a poppy seed or sesame seed person; the bread had both on top & I actually ate a decent bit of the bread!). It was still nice & warm to help melt the butter. For the entree, my husband had the Filet Mignon (it was 4 or 5oz) & I had the Imperial Crab. Both were very wonderful. They came with a dish of Creamed Spinich & a dish of Mashed Potatoes to share between us. I'm not a huge spinich fan but I did eat some, not too bad. I loved the potatoes tho, great flavor, didn't need salt or pepper like usual! The Filet was nicely cooked outside with lots of juice & some pink still inside. It was extremely flavorful & had my husband wanting to buy another dish of it! The Imperial Crab was full of lump crab meat & out of the whole dish, only 3 tiny shell pieces (to me, that's good!)! Then came dessert: my husband got the Creme Brulee & I got the Chocolate Mousee Pie. The Brulee had a nice crispy top (not hard, just crispy enough) that my husband said reminded him of toasted marshmallows. Under that was a nice light creamy custard. He loved every spoonfull. My pie was amazingly light! I've never had such a wonderful chocolate mousee before, I certainly would have gotten more given the chance! The waiter had a nice balance of checking on us & leaving us alone. He was prompt with refilling our waters, usually before we ran out.

Cons: The location is not the best in our opinions. We were hoping to take a stroll to the harbor afterwards but there was no way we felt comfortable walking around outside of the restaurant (we used the garage entrance to get to & from the restaurant). When we were seated, we were put at a very tiny table up against a wall & already felt crowded by the other tables nearby. The walkway between our table to the one to my right was so small that each time someone walked by, we both had to lean against the wall to avoid being bumped (it got to the point I just stayed against the wall). The noise level rivals that of Applebees or T.G.I. Fridays on a firday or Saturday nice with a packed bar during football season! We could hardly hear each other talk at several points through the evening. The price of beverages outside of water was insane. My tiny Sprite (not more than a 12oz glass filled to the top with ice) cost $4. My husbands 1 beer cost $7. We were very glad we only purchased one of each & didn't have any refills! We were trying to attribute the noise level & the tight spacing to it being restaurant week, thinking they added in tables to acommadate the response & that some patrons may not have been use to going to a fancy restaurant & therefore respecting the lower noise level. However, we found out later that a friend of my husbands use to go there often with her husband & said it's always cramped feeling & very loud, they eventually stopped going.

The previous year we went to Red Lobster for my birthday. We both felt it would have been better to go there instead of The Prime Rib. It was far quieter & roomier. The food, in our opinions, is still very good at RL.

We have eaten at The Capital Grille & The Rusty Scupper during past restaurant weeks & both were places we would willingly return to & pay full price. The entire experience was wonderful at both of those.

Went to prime rib for Valentines dinner. Not the ambiance we were looking for. No coatcheck, $12.00 martinis. The worst part was seating is elbow to elbow with your neighbor. No complaints on the food. The food was good. I just don't like sitting in my neighbors lap when trying to have a romantic dinner with my girl. Not worth the money, go to Capial Grill.

My girlfriend came to Baltimore for the weekend and I wanted to take her somewhere really great. This place was awesome...some reviewers said it's crowded...well, it wasn't crowded at all. The food was amazing, like top 10 of my whole life amazing. The service was great, I have nothing to complain about. The atmosphere was romantic and quiet. I had reservations for 5 right when they opened...good time to go. Bread was really warm and fresh.

There was no live Saxophone, I thought there would be on Friday night, but other than that, it was just what I was looking for. It's expensive, but well worth it. I'd say if you're thinking about a really special dinner...this is the best in Baltimore.

Im a steak buff. Love Rays, Mortons, Sam and Harry's and Ruth Chris.

Prime Rib on Chase St in Baltimore? Good steaks, but our 8:30 reservation got us sat at 9:15. A sordid apology from the manager.... "sorry its restaurant week and we are busy".

Lazy waiters, weak drinks, but the food was good.

If you are just out with friends, service isnt a big issue, and you arent looking to impress, this is a good place for a great dinner with reasonable service.

Nothing special, but nothing to complain about.

Hadn't been to the Prime Rib in awhile, but it's still oustanding! The Prime Rib entree is the best in town. Love the creamed spinach. And the service is perfect--quiet, efficient, friendly, totally professional. The live music makes a perfect environment.

The atmosphere is like no other. Very traditional feel and very helpful staff. The food was absolutely fantastic. I had the Prime Rib (bone out) and can honestly say it was the best piece of prime rib I have ever had. The creamed vegetables were crisp and delicious as well. Can't say enough about how enjoyable of an experience this restaurant was. It is more expensive but worth every penny.

The Prime Rib has good steak. Attentive waitstaff. The problem is that they just seem to lack restraint in booking reservations. It's unreasonable to have an 8pm reservation and not get seated until 8:45pm. Probably the best steakhouse in Baltimore, though I don't know how big of a compliment that is.

We were not disappointed when we went here for my husband's birthday. He ordered crab appetizer which was delicious and a nice portion. Ribs were his main course, which were the best he ever had, very meaty and tender. As a vegetarian, I planned on ordering side dishes, but they had a vegetarian platter that wasn't listed on the menu, which included the sides I was planning on ordering and then some. It was also ample and delicious. When I made the reservations I didn't mention it was for his birthday b/c we wouldn't eat the cake anyhow. But the waiter asked if it was a special occasion and my husband said it was his birthday, but not to bring any cake, the waiter surprised us by bringing out a large parfait glass full of fresh strawberries.

If you want a steakhouse that's truly worth its value; if you want to try the best steak in your lifetime; if you want a high-class place in Baltimore; if you like dim-light restaurants and live jazz entertainment; if you want to feel high-class and pampered: this is THE steakhouse. No other steakhouse in Baltimore comes close to being this good (in steaks, at least).

Afer so many years owning, operating, and dining at restaurants throughout this country and some in Europe, I feel that not only does the Prime Rib have exquisite food, especially the Prime Rib, but also it has perfected anticipatory service. With the unusual, dramatic, and gorgeous decor, ambience is sublime. The table tops are picture perfect, featuring International silver flatware and shaded candle lamps and the glass top piano makes the white linened dining room, tuxedoed wait staff, and the crisp white jacketed bartenders a detail of perfection.

I'm always searching for the best in quality, service & value. As steak houses go, the Prime Rib has gained a spot in my top five. Youll easily drop a $150 for two. However, the proportions are so large, I had to take some home! The food is prepared perfectly & the service is top shelf. If youll budget allow it, trust me, youll enjoy it.

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!

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.

Wonderful fish and the best steak in town. While not the place you might expect to find it, the best crab cake in this town famous for same. Finally the desserts will send you home deciding you will need to fast for a month

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.

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. . . .

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.

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....

We went to the Prime Rib for a special occasion and were neglected miserably. We received no bread (though the obviously more wealthy patrons did) and had to beg for service. We got one drink, that's it, no offers for more. It was so crowded, the waiter's coattails were nearly in our food. My fish was dried out and tasteless. We were presented with our bill before I even finished my dessert! All this for over $125 for two people. Their website said to e-mail comments, which I did and received no response. I also sent a detailed letter by postal mail; no response. What a waste of money!
