I took my beautiful wife to Barclay Prime this weekend. We shared the American Wagyu filet, lobster, and creamed mashed potatoes. For dessert we shared the 3 piece cookie with vanilla ice cream. This is the first time we tried Wagyu. It is expensive, but...worth every bite. We asked to have it cooked between medium and medium well. It was closer to medium, and perfect. The lobster was about 1 lb. of the most delicious lobster I have had in awhile. Granted, I did have 2 Amstel Light's prior to the Lobster. But still.....mmmmmmmmm The creamed mash were a pleasant surprise. They used Yukon gold potatoes, along with parmesan cheese and truffle butter. We know this because we looked up the recipe, so we could make it ourselves very soon. Our waiter was top notch as well. If I had to make a minor complaint, it was the seating was tight. A person over 6 foot would have a hard time sitting in the front area where we sat. Looking forward to another trip here in the future.More

We had a wonderful meal. Glatt kosher steak is a real treat that we can’t get in out hometown. Bronzino was delicious. Spinach, shoestring onions and broccolini.

We hadn't been here in many years, and I guess with good reason. The food is exorbitantly priced with baked potatoes at $15 as an example. The crab cakes were mediocre, and the filet at $45 was yuk. A baked potato was $15, even if...large. The waitress was supercilious and demeaning. Not having salt and pepper on the table is uncalled for. Charging four dollars for steak sauce, even if the charge was removed from the bill on complaint, is insulting. Definitely not worth a second visit for high prices and mediocre food. Maybe, we missed the charm that was supposed be part of the deal.More

Ambiance, service, expertly prepared and presented food ~~ what more could we ask for? Our waiter was attentive and engaging, especially so with my 10 and 12 year-old niece and nephew. The Wagyu Ribeye was tender, seared just-so, and melt-in-your mouth. My nephew devoured his...Caesar salad and lamb chops, and niece "loved" her filet. They enjoyed the baked cookie with ice cream, and I indulged in a scoop of refreshing pomegranate sorbet. We had a great time!More

This has to be my new favorite restaurant. We were unable to get a reservation last night so we had to sit in the front area which was honestly terrific. It was quiet and intimate with great service. The bread was the best bread I...have ever had at a restaurant. We each loved our orders of the sea bass and the filet mignon. The steak was cooked perfectly and full of flavor. And the dessert left us speechless. I love ordering the cookie skillet dessert at restaurants but this cookie skillet not only had chocolate chip but a trio including the most delicious sugar cookie and oatmeal raisin cookie. Beyond amazing meal and can't wait to go back.More

Everything was wonderful. The service, the food, the ambiance - all were perfect. The steak we liked best was the Idaho 8 oz. steak. The truffle mac and cheese was great as were the scallops. The banana creme brulee was my favorite dessert. It's expensive,...but for a very special experience, it's a great choice.More

Starting from the Host to our great server Mat. We had the best experience ever. Mat went above and beyond to make this visit special. It was my birthday and he brought us a cake. The service was great. The food was good too. Anytime...I needed something Mat was right next to me and just ready to assist. I can keep going on. I worked with hotels and restaurants for years. But never had this great experience before. Thanks again Mat. We will definitely be backMore

The dining area is absolutely beautiful. Our waiter was a class act and the food was off the charts flavorful and delicious. We started with the Wedge with iceberg, neuske bacon, point reyes bleu cheese and it was perfection followed by the Rib Eye (prime...40 day dry-aged). It was so big I split it with my daughter and her dad had the New York Strip and requested it to be served Au Poivre (only an extra $4) Everything was a 10.More

We are your typical foodie who eats at all the top restaurants in the United States. I came into Barclay Prime with high expectations and they delivered! I'll highlight the service and the meal, as well as, we will be back again! Dinner for two...will run $400. Chris our waiter was great for service truly excellent. We had the Hamachi Crudo (yellow tail and avocado) with Seared Diver Scallops to start. I would say both these appetizers are a must, they were delicious. For the main course we went for the dry aged ribeye and the 3 lbs lobster which was excellent. If I had a little extra to spend probably would have went for the Wagyu. Sides we had the roasted carrots with mashed potatoes. Just a perfect meal all around.More

I bit the bullet and had the american waygu - was NOT disappointed. Every bite was like butter - VERY impressed. Best piece of steak Ive ever had. Really fun to choose your knife as well - surprised I done see this at more restaurants....The brussel sprouts side is also incredible - but the mac and cheese, not great. Turbot fish - best in class as well. This place is NOT cheap, but you get what you pay for. $400 for a nce dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine and some beers...a good celebration place.More
