Great patio and great food! They have a great outdoor area to enjoy an intimate meal or to have drinks with friends.
We went out to dinner to celebrate my husband’s graduation. When I made the reservation, I put that it was a special occasion and they brought us each a complementary glass of champagne. I thought this was very generous and thoughtful. They had a special for a Tomahawk steak which we split, and it was amazing! Their bourbon butter cake for dessert was also so delicious. Our server was friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to go back.
As locals, we've not dined at this restaurant, but have always been curious to try. We were pleasantly surprised at the outstanding tasty steaks and sides. The service was very good to outstanding. The ambiance is excellent at your outside seating and bar area. However, we were seated in your indoor dining area which is in dire need of a renovation and lightening up. It is very drab and uninviting, dark, windowless dining room, with no consistency or theme on décor?? We will gladly dine again at your restaurant, but will insist on outdoor seating or seating in/at the bar area.
I highly recommend this place. Great staff, amazing food and great value. Went for a date night and will definitely be going back!
The customer service was excellent!The staff acknowledged our wedding anniversary and served a complimentary glass of Prosecco. Our server was attentive and explained the chef specials. We started with a great tasting creamy crab bisque with large lumps of crab meat. I had a tender smoky brisket with crispy brussel sprouts. My husband had Chilean Seabass in a miso broth and caesar salad. We noticed a grand selection of cigars .Unfortunately the cigar bar is reserved for members only. Nevertheless, our server informed us that we were welcome to buy and smoke them later. We ordered two from the AVO collection. I would recommend this restaurant. They had nice brightly lit outdoor seating with fire pits and spacious seating in the dining area with guards to ensure safety while eating inside.
Excellent evening outside on the patio
We dined here today after seeing a movie. We arrived as soon as they opened and were seated promptly. The atmosphere was nice and inviting. Staff very friendly.
I ordered the blackberry lemonade, but it was very tart (almost to the point of being sour). The server was happy to have it made sweeter and it came back delicious.
Started with cheesesteak rolls and Caesar salad. Both were tasty. I ordered the smoked brisket that came with fries. My husband ordered prime rib with deconstructed potatoes. Dessert was the butter cake.
Cheesesteak rolls - really good
Brisket was kinda salty but tender and good
Prime rib - delicious
Potato - just ok
Buttercake came out hot, not warm like I was expecting. Some parts were moist and other parts hard and dry. It had good flavor though.
The best part of the restaurant is the service. It’s superb. I wouldn’t add it to my favorites, but I would dine here again.
excellent service. food was good. easy to reserve. meal was a bit fast paced. had not even finished cocktails when food was served. attentive server.
Great food and service! Off the beaten path but we were pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem!
Tasty food and great outdoor seating. Server was very friendly.
Beautiful outdoor dining great food super nice people working there. Amazing service
This was our second visit and because we had such a great first visit, this one was a bit disappointing. The staff is exceptionally nice and welcoming. And they really are accommodating and helpful. The food seems to be hit or miss. Our first visit our dishes were delicious, well prepared and food seemed freshly prepared. On this visit, the food didn’t taste as good. The crab cake had more filler than before, was almost mushy and for some reason, the greens they were on top were very salty. The key lime pie that I thought was one of the best I ever had on my first visit - fresh lime flavor and perfectly crispy crust - was pale in color and the crust soggy with a bit of runny goo under it. It had clearly been made days before and sat for a while. The decor of this place is a bit sterile and there is odd art and fake flowers everywhere. I think removing them and updating with cohesive decor could go a long way. The dining tables and seating is nice and the tables have white table cloths fir an elegant touch. I would still recommend this restaurant but just know you may have a disappointing meal or an amazing one. Hopefully the latter because food prices are very high these days and this restaurant is not cheap.
We have dined at American Prime frequently over the last 3 years and our experience has been great. We love the service we receive. Their signature prime rib is the centerpiece of the restaurant, as well as the smoked wings. Our entire family enjoys the restaurant and what they have to offer. We would recommend American Prime for anyone looking for a great local restaurant that has great service.
Great dinner with family and friends (adults only). Service was great, as was the food.
Great steak and efficient service
Best steak, appetizers,…literally the best everything we’ve had dining out for over two years! (#1 of @100+ restaurants we’ve eaten at locally, nationally & internationally-from take out to Michelin star.) This restaurant, it’s food, service, & ambience delivered above and beyond our expectations. Great mix of people, from shorts to suits & everyone was treated as members of the family. We’re grateful for the incredible and memorable experience they gave us. We will be back.
The food was super salty and the ambiance is lacking. Service was great though.
The decor and overall look of this restaurant is nothing special and almost sterile. They have a glass case where you can see meats aging but it doesn’t really look like that type of a case so it doesn’t have the intended impression. The outdoor area is charming with the string lights and it’s a nice experience to pull up to.
The cocktails were a nice surprise. One of the few places I’ve been where they knew what a dark and stormy was and the best ingredients. The food was very good; the crab cake was mostly crab meat and delicious. The deconstructed potato was an interesting twist on a potato and quite good. The desserts were outstanding. The key lime pie was authentic and fresh and you could taste it. The bourbon cake was amazing. The staff were welcoming, friendly and responsive. I recommend this hidden gem.
Went for restaurant week lunch and sat outside. Food was good and service was great!
My friend and I decided to go to American Prime for Restaurant Week. We both got the truffle arancini as the appetizer, prime rib for the main course, and bread pudding for dessert. All were delicious and we were very full afterwards.
Stella & Colleen provided outstanding service! Great food! Excellent wine selection! Must see in NoVA!!
Greta food !! Shelby who waited on us was great!!
Only minor complaint was that we made reservations outside and when we got there all that was left was a table in a full sun section with nobody seated there, boring!
Outside of that everything else was Great!!
We enjoyed all of our food. Tomahawk steak, smoked wings, corn, asparagus, blue crab soup, and the baratta salad. Our server was pretty good and was around but could have checked in us more often. We would go back. Was disappointed when that despite having a dress code of business casual, it is not enforced (other customers with jeans, t-shirt, and baseball caps at another table). Also, the restaurant had a weird smell, like an old best western that has been smoked in. Not overpowering, but noticeable.
We went on on Saturday night, table for two. Service was excellent. Sea bass was good, not great. NY Strip was supposed to be medium. Have never had a restaurant steak as charred on the outside and as raw in the middle, horrible, and I've had plenty of restaurant steaks.
Overpriced for the quality of the food in my opinion. The place feels cold and lacks any warmth, almost sterile.
NY strip ordered Med rare came out raw. Sent it back. 3 surrounding tables each sent a steak back. The chef is an amateur.
No concessions made for ruining the dinner as far as timing and all food hot.
The steak was actually good — dry aged and charred. And French fries good too.
Salads average. Wine list decent at best— abundant with over Oaked California Chardonnay’s and Sauvignon blanc. Nothing too interesting.
The place has potential but I won’t be returning until they fix their problems.
There’s a reason they are almost empty on Friday night.
American Prime is under appreciated - it’s quiet on Saturday nights, but food and service is impeccable. This is NOT a chain - the outdoor dining areas are really outstanding, and inside is nice too. Highly recommended.
Great food and service. Saturday nights are quiet. Always easy to find parking.
Great time. Had a good cigar and a great steak. The service was outstanding and the drinks were also very good. Great place for dinner with friends.
All was great except the desert. Unfortunate and unusual choice was the strawberry rhubarb cake. Skip this and get just about anything else. Overall great restaurant.
This was my first visit to American Prime and everything was great!
NY Strip was over cooked and very very buttery, everything else was fine
Always a nice experience. Hold many business dinners there.
Drinks were OK, service good, food good: not overcooked, too fatty or low quality (I had the smoked prime rib, my buddy had the steak frites). Single glass wine pours good. Not outrageously expensive like a Mortons, etc. Not busy at all. Would definitely return.
Had a fantastic time for our first night out without kids since the start of the pandemic and a birthday. Staff was wonderful, everything we ate was incredible, and oh my god we didn’t have to do the dishes. Great wine selection and an excellent bartender, Chris. Flourless chocolate cake was divine.
We love this restaurant and the staff. We are regulars at American Prime and became so because of their high level of service and great food. AJ always takes care of us.
Came to celebrate my new job and Matt’s last night working at Prime! Love this place, great food great drinks so glad to see AJ as well! They were packed and it’s all due to the great service, food and beverages that they offer. Will frequent again!
The service was fantastic from walking into the restaurant at the hostess desk thru the entire meal the staff was friendly and professional
Very nice restaurant and excellent service. My wife and I had a 6:30 reservation and we were the only people that ate inside of the restaurant. Everybody else ate outside. We had it all to ourselves.
