House of Prime Rib Reviews
The food is not modern, but boy is it good. The big booths, tableside preparations and amazing prime rib will transport you to a bygone era. Choose the portion, thickness and doneness of your prime rib, and enjoy all the fixings: salad prepared at table, creamed spinach, big baked potato and Yorkshire pudding--and seconds, if you can! You will feel very well taken care of.
Nothing!!! And bad service
by Duc Nguyen
If you are getting the King slice of prime rib, the baked potato might be too much. The mashed potatoes were a much more comfortable portion.

The English Cut 👌

No matter what size you order, you can always ask for more
by Sophia C.
Fairly priced for a delicious meal. Great dining experience that transports you to the 1970s

Too much meat!!!
by Oleg R.
Brasileiros não vão achando que vão comer um steak grelhado. A carne é a mais macia que eu já comi, mas está mais para carne cozida. Se espera um prime rib grelhado maravilhoso vai se decepcionar.
by Henrique Sapori
Bring your appetite. Very filling and delicious food.

La mejor prime rib de Estados Unidos un lugar que no se puede dejar de ir
by David Rodríguez
Get the standard cut and finish it- they will hook you up for more.
by Garry T.
A kind of delicious prime rib which is different from what I tried before. They give u sides too like Yorkshire pudding and creamed spinach.
by herm pugay
The service felt like they were trying to get us out as fast as they can. Prime rib was good; nothing too extraordinary. The sides were too salty and heavy.
by Sirma Suher
House cut, baked potato, creamed spinach, dirty martini, second slice
by Lauren H.
The House of Prime Rib!! Better than Lawry's The Prime Rib!👍 Hands Down! (Sorry Lawry's)
by Joseph K
The prime rib just melts in your mouth. The salad is tossed right in front of you at your table. The staff is excellent. Mashed potatoes is perfect. Great for group outtings. Valet is pretty cheap
by Alex T.
You want to eat like a king? Eat here. All you need to do is order the King Henry the VIII Cut. They'll take care of the rest.
This restaurant is 99.9% perfection. Service,ambiance,food are awesome. The Manhattan's can be a bit light on flavor. Just order a Blanton's Bourbon to go with your prime rib. 100% perfection!
Awesome meal! Just get the King Henry the VIII Cut it's only a few bucks more. If you don't finish it,you have left overs. If you do+want more you get a 2nd smaller serving of prime rib w/more sides.
The prime rib really is amazing. I couldn't finish the house cut, but it was only $2 more than the city cut, so it was worth a shot!
by Krista Vogel
It was good prime rib but don't plan on having a conversation. Really loud.

Prime ribs. Must get regular cuts. Do yourself a favor, Don't be cute and order three thin slices. That's not gonna be worthy of your hard earn money. Their cream spinach is superb!
by Martin D. C.
You don't need a reservation at the bar and can order from the full menu, get things like salad and baked potatoes a la carte, or just enjoy a cocktail and people watch.
by Nicholas Boos
Hiro Sone, chef of Ame, eats here on his nights off. He loves the House of Prime Rib cut.
by Chefs Feed
You don't get yer seconds, if you don't finish yer meat!
by James T
Decent Yorkshire Puddings for an American place.
by James T
If you finish your steak, they'll just give you a second one! You can't take that one home though
by Namita B.
House cut, medium rare, mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Use the pure horseradish.
by Slin L.
Try the fish (said no one ever)
by John K.
Really good prime rib! Though don't spect an steak, it's more like a roast beef.
by Valentin S.
The seating in the back and side rooms is quieter. Save room for dessert!
by Mary O.
Order the prime rib! :p seriously go for the biggest cut- it's only a few bucks more, great to have leftover steak and eggs for breakfast! Not the place to go if you are vegan or vegetarian at all!
by Keri M.
English cut = delicious. An extra slice and side of potatoes and spinich afterwards = awesome.
by Dan B.
Great food. English cut prime rib, leaner cut
Great prime rib! It's expensive but it's a place to visit at least once in your life.
by Javier L.
Some people love Disneyland, Hawaii, Comic-Con...my favorite place in the world is House of Prime Rib
A great range of vegan tapas on their secret menu. Ask your server.
by Brett L.
Which I could say I loved it but the host was incredibly bitchy and seemed bothered by the customers. Not the best foot forward so, we moved elsewhere.
by Roman S.
English cut is the way to go!!!
by Regina W.
Martini and prime rib. The best combo!
Get the King Henry cut. You won't be disappointed but you will be full.

by Charu G.
Be sure and come hungry!
by Margie B.
Great food, perfect portions.... Only issue was I felt rushed by the waitress, like she was in a hurry to get is out of there so she could be seated again.
by Kay S.
a very meat meat meat and potatoes experience. worth doing every once in a while.
Excellent Prime Rib, so juicy n sumptuous!! 😊😍🍴👍
by Michael Y.
The price between the King Henry and English cut is a few bucks, just get the King Henry and enjoy. I'll be back.
by Eddie H.
Absolutely great food, the meat was soft like butter!
by Thomas V.
Try the Salad Bowl (via @Foodspotting)
by David N.
Seconds not available with city cut. However, seconds are only a small, thin slice :( Don't fill up on bread! Enjoy the stuffed baked potatoes and try to ask for half and half creamed spinach and corn
by Kelly P.
English cut is the sweetest! Mashed potato and spinach over the baked potato or corn for sure.
by Jason L.
Only ask for half the salad dressing...trust me it will still be more than plenty and you will have a lesser need for the defibulator
by Reno M.

Come with your appetite! Leave satisfied.
by Christine K.
The English Cut was cooked to perfection! It was tender and juicy! I ate my leftovers the next day and it was just as good as the day before.
by Lien P.
King Henry's cut is the only cut you should get.
by Kevin U.
really big portion! order the smallest city cut and it stilll comes with salad potatoes creamed spinach and complimentary bread! always order a glass of wine to go with your steak!
by Brenda Jiwon L.
Wether you are having the Kings cut or the English cut you can't go wrong both are very very tender and flavored to perfection.
by Terry L.
They will call you out if you try to take a piece of the napkin...
by Lijay S.
Todd is an amazing server
by Sheryl V.
Had the English cut, really tender. Bread pudding for the au jus was really great. Easily the best prime rib I've ever had.
by Mitch L.
Don't eat too much bread or salad! Save room for Prime Rib, potatoes and Yorkshire pudding! Save room got dessert too! Lots to choose from!
by Melody F.
King Henry. That is all.
by Bret B.
Good meat. The various cuts largely relate to the size of portion rather than the cut of meat. If you are more used to European sized portions you might want to go for the meal without the salad
by Jonathan Y.
Literally one of the best meals o have ever had, and probably the best prime rib I have ever had! Also, the apple crisp was amazing; ask to have caramel added
by Ryan H.
Be patient. Even when you have a reservation, it could take another 25 minutes to be seated.
by Kraig P.
Save room for free seconds!
by Bobby S.
Deliciously awesome. Go for the King Henry VIII cut, it's only a $4 difference.
by Sara M.
Come with an appetite and ignore the moose crowd
Best Steak ever :)
by Ondrea M.
When the zeppelin of prime rib arrives at your table your inner Ron Swanson will smile. Also, if you finish your prime rib they will give you a second cut free.
by Andrew M.
King henry rulezzz.

by lisa h.
Get the fish! Just kidding.. get the prime rib obviously. Medium rare is how it's done.
by Jennifer Y.
Left full and happy. Not as pricey as you might think considering what you get. Excellent prime rib and mash. Freshly made salad dressing and the best cream corn I have ever had.
by Chris K.
Prime rib is on 7x7's Big Eat 2013.
by Anton S.
Don't eat anything before coming here. You are going to need the room!
by Gordon R.
Pretty sure you don't need a tip at a restaurant where the menu is just "how big a slice of prime rib do you want?"
by Greg G.
Oli's gettin' his leftovers on!!!

by Spoon C.
Delicioso! El mejor corte de carne que he probado en mi vida, english cut aunque el city se veía muy rico también
by Luis V.
Try the Creme Brûlée, Sherbert, Pecan Pie, English Trifle and Tiramisu for dessert. Yes, all of them. The Hess Cab isn't bad, Opus and Silver Oak by the bottle.
by Kristaan J.
31. Prime rib
by Beau H.
If you are traveling on business and eating alone you can eat at the bar with no reservation. Also they will give you a small cut of prime rib for free if you are still hungry.
by Chris C.
They don't let you take the seconds to go!
by Kevin L.
If you don't have a reservation, try to skip the wait and sit at the bar. You will get to eat way faster this way.
by Mark Z.
The King Henry VIII cut is... woah. I hope you're really hungry.

Watch out for the wonky shaker tops, and, if you can, go see the younger tall bartender with a buzz cut and beard if you're having a cocktail beforehand!

This place is too famous? Waiting time for seat is really long (even with reservation)...you need at least 2 hours in this restaurant...Prime Rib is really nice though...
7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the prime rib is delicious. Yum!

Ask for additional Yorkshire pudding, like the second serving of beef, it's also free!
by Ian C.
Reservations are a must. The salad is delightful. House, English and Henry VIII cuts are mouth-watering. Best prime rib I ever had.
