As promised, a report on the Prime Rib last Saturday night. Started off well. When I called to confirm my reservation on Saturday afternoon, I asked for a table in the front room. (Having been there before, the front room has a nicer decor and is just classier.) I was offered the half-moon table next to the piano player. I accepted. The table is practically attached to the piano but the sound is directed away. From that table you can also see the bar action.
The food was really good. Crabcakes for an appetizer. As good as you would expect in a restaurant of this caliber - even though it's known as a "meat" restaurant. Filet and rib steak (one of their signature dishes). Side dishes of mashed potatoes and string beans were good. Since we had a drink before the meal, the waiter suggested glasses of white wine with the crabcake and red (a big zinfandel) with the meat.
The negative was the service. It took 3 hours for the two of us to eat dinner. We like a leisurely dinner, but the wait between courses was way too long. The Prime Rib is known for good service so this was very surprising.
