Staff is excellent. Food is pretty close to perfect. Expensive but worth every penny. Everything is a la carte. The atmosphere is elegant. Although there were many large parties celebrating events, the restaurant was not noisy. I was traveling alone and did not feel uncomfortable...More

One of the best dinners out I have had in a while and I eat out frequently. Service was spot on. Starting with delicious escargot with just the right amount of garlic, Caesar salad made their way, not a real heavy dressing. Complimentary potato skins,...More

Philadelphia is my home town, and I love the city. Prime Rib in the Warwick Hotel is one of the city's most expensive restaurants but not one of the best. The crab salad features canned product, probably from Asia. Clams Casino also had canned product....More

Food & service are always very good, and the roast beef is the best in town! Sunday is BYOB for wine geeks w/an excellent value prix-fixe menu. Pleasant piano music adds a note of New York club elegance.

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.
