Steakhouse
Gargantuan cuts of prime beef, extra thick chops, and simply prepared fresh seafood are the straightforward offerings of this steakhouse that evokes the supper clubs of Manhattan in the 1940's. Leopard print carpeting, black lacquered walls trimmed in brass and tuxedoed waiters complete the elegant atmosphere, featuring live piano and bass nightly. Dress code is business casual.

We went to celebrate our anniversary. The music was great. I ordered the lamb chops. They weren’t cooked to the temperature I asked for and they were also covered in garlic juice. A little would have been good but there was a bit too much. The Caesar salad was good and so was the creme brûlée.

Another over the top experience at this one of a kind restaurant. The filet mignon and lobster tail were cooked to perfection. And the Sundae was a perfect ending to an awesome New Year’s Eve dinner !

My wife and I have been coming here Christmas time since we started dating in 2003 (admittedly missing a year here and there because of newborns and stuff). Food is just as good as it was 18 years ago. Ambiance is very classy. Always a beautiful date with my beautiful wife

Risked Covid for this? First and last time. Prime rib arrived well under ordered temp. We very politely asked that it be cooked a little longer.Waited an additional 20 mins for the steaks to return. Meal sequence and timing is part of what makes a great dining experience. Once they arrived, we had no utensils, no horseradish, and cold appetizers. When the waiter checked on us 10 mins later, in addition to the essentials to physically eat, we also requested fresh appetizers since they were still cold from waiting. We didn't touch them while we were waiting for our steaks to be re-fired. They never arrived. I finally flagged down the manager and politely explained the situation. He stared at us and asked what we would like to do now. We stared back… confused with the question. He should have made it right, bring us appetizers that are hot and fresh and not sitting cold and uneaten (strange we had to even ask for fresh ones) especially at that price point …They started to clear the table and the man clearing asked if we wanted the steak boxed. I said sure, I planned on handing it to a homeless person on my walk back to my condo…. assuming they were tossing it bc we didn’t eat it…

The waiter came back to the table and asked if we were taking the steak to go and I said if you are throwing it out, I would rather give it to someone in need.…. He said that his manager told him to tell us that if we take the steak to go then they will charge us for it. I assumed we were paying for the entire meal anyway. I didn't ever ask for anything to be comped. I asked, "are you guys just tossing it?" I don’t like to waste food when there are people on the street who would probably enjoy the meal. He said yes they reuse it. I was horrified. My sister and I were completely disgusted. Not only did we have a bad experience, but either the manager was being petty or they actually reuse it.

Beware of eating here. Many other amazing restaurants in Philly. Not worth the $ at all.

Rittenhouse Grill has a wonderfully elegant atmosphere. My prime rib and my wife's filet mignon were both outstanding examples of those two cuts of meat and they were excellently prepared. The service was friendly and good.

Incredibly disappointing in restaurants new iteration. Prices were outrageously expensive for ho hum food quality. Filet mignon at $50 plus was tasteless. Gratin potatoes too were tasteless. We will never go back. Feels like a tourist trap now.

The decor was very sophisticated. The music was lovely. The service was prompt, professional and personable.The food was delicious.
My only concern was the the women's room. Upon arrival, it was clean and well supplied. Upon leaving, it was unkept, short of supplies and needed cleaning. I did speak to the representatives of the Warwick Hotel. It was unacceptable.

we had a very disappointing experience, the service was horrendous, we had to wait forever to get menus, to get water, and between every course of the meal. We had to flag down other servers and staff for basic service. The food was very disappointing for the price, under seasoned and bland. we will not be returning.

We went to eat here on a Wednesday evening and had dinner at the bar. The food was outstanding; Wedge Salad, Coconut Shrimp, NY Strip, & Key Lime Pie. The bar is beautiful and so is the rest of the space. The service was phenomenal! Our bartender, David, had almost a full bar and yet was very attentive and knowledgeable! We will definitely be back soon!!!
