Prime Rib

We were given a gift certificate to Prime Rib and used it this past Sunday. And a lovely time was had by all!
This restaurant has a delightful atmosphere. If you are going to treat parents, grandparents, or visiting relatives to a special place, this is a good one. There were several tables with children, too. I don't know if they had a special menu for them.
There is background piano music, gorgeous flower arrangements, and it's quiet enough to talk.
All of our food was excellent.
We did not order wine; instead,my husband had a martini and I had an appletini - both just right.
We shared a very good house salad, which was divided for us in the kitchen. I think it was $6.50.
I ordered the filet and my husband had the prime rib, which is, of course, their specialty. My filet was perfect. I don't order roast beef out - it's not my favorite - but my husband's prime rib was exceptional: tender, juicy, almost buttery. He said it was the best he ever had. Our entrees were about $30 each.
We had two sides - extra, of course - creamed spinach that was the perfect consistency, and Greenberg potato skins, really enough for 4 but the two of us finished every one. (Someone had told us to order them.)
Since we were being decadent, we shared the hot fudge sundae, which had caramel and nuts in it. MMMm!
Although it's not cheap here, we have been in other restaurants where we spent this much and enjoyed it less. Here, you had the feeling that anything you ordered would be properly done and delicious.
As of now, this is my favorite steak house in town. We don't go often to a steak house, but I would like a return visit.
