We had an important high level business meeting with out of town guests. Barclay prime turned out to be the perfect location. Elegant and impressive with great food, but not too noisy. Impeccable service throughout the night.

Have to say....Not Good. I have dined at top steakhouses across the US. This was suppose to be one of them according to reviews ,but unfortunately for me it wasn't even in my top 20. Place was WAAAYY to dark number 1..never before have I had to use my phone flashlight to see the menu.

Waiter was not friendly...seemed he couldn't be bothered. Saw him once throughout the night. Took forever to take our order..had a helper who was a bit nicer, but not a super friendly personality.

Food was OK. Nothing spectacular. From carpaccio, tuna tartare, and lobster bisque soup....ehhh 5 out of 10.
Had a Prime ribeye, was OK....not really seasoned that much. Dining partner had a Prime Strip...Not Good.

Dessert was Ok having had the banana creme brûlée and coffee...

Overall, not worth the $300. Would not return or recommend.

Best steakhouse in Philly period. Their Wagyu cuts are insane quality. Fully recommend the American Wagyu Ribeye paired with either a Filet or preferably the Bone-in strip.

The best meal I've ever had. Words can not describe the cheesesteak! I can not stop thinking about that indescribable sandwich. We also shared the seafood tower. Extremely fresh and so delicious. Dover sole to die for and steak done to perfection. Wish I could eat here every day. Service and decor simply wonderful!

Great as usual, can’t go wrong with anything to be honest. This was a classic Wagyu RibEye, Bone-In NY, Truffle Mac and Creamed Spinach for my wife’s bday! Doesn’t get better

The wait staff was outstanding in their service. The fillet was delicious but the ribeye steak was tough and had quite a bit of grizzle or tendons

An overpriced restaurant with few redeeming features. The waitress was about as snotty as one can be: I order my meat well- done. "You mean like a hockey puck."

While the salads were ok, the crab cakes were mediocre and overpriced. The filet was equally mediocre, but to add a further insult, there was a $4 charge for A1 sauce. Even though the charge was removed, the Gaul to place this on the bill shows an utter disregard for the customer. The baked potato and the martini were ok.

Not worth another visit.

Everything was good, but having dined here several times over recent years, something seemed to be lacking to live up to the pomp and circumstance. Service was off-pace (e.g. appetizers served before the earlier ordered cocktails arrived-which were rather average). Steaks were good, but not off the chart good-not even the Waygu filet. The sides were excellent-tater tots and truffle mac and cheese were as good as ever. Deep dish cookie dessert was uninspired. I’d return based on previous experiences, but not in a rush after this visit.

The food was really good. Pleasant surprise with the carrots. The customer service was outstanding. The waiter was extremely personable. The waiter really made the evening special for my birthday.

My partner loves the ribeye at the Palm and Knife and Fork (in AC). But he says the ribeye he had at BP is best he ever had. Says it was perfectly marbled and tender and flavorful. Charred on outside perfect juicy medium rare doneness on inside. We also enjoyed hamachi crudo and foie gras starters. Cocktails good but not stellar and expensive. Didnt love brussel sprouts. not done enough but he liked them. loved banana creme brulee for dessert.
Two glasses bordeaux good value

A special birthday treat for dad. Started off with cocktails and apps in the bar. Service was a bit slow during happy hour, but it was friendly. Our server Erin was helpful and friendly in the dining room. Thank you for making a kid-friendly pasta dish for my 9-year-old.

Service was terrific. Everything prepared to perfection, from hot buttered brioche to dessert. We enjoyed NY strip, mushrooms, baked potato, lobster bisque - all of it outstanding. We were there for a date, but the rest of the dining room on a busy Thursday evening seemed to be exclusively business meetings (which makes sense since the prices will make you look twice if you are not expensing it!) Our server Jeff was knowledgeable about everything from whiskey to the restaurant’s history. Classic steakhouse with great seafood options as well!
