I will admit it - Brooklyn is my playground. Especially hip Brooklyn. Give me skinny jeans, skinny guys, skinny ties, and darling, of course give me that hip factor I so embody living as a Brooklyn Wburger (tee hee.) Wore my stilettos and pearls, and sumtin' vintage, and had a delicious meal. I think I am part German so points for the sides in that direction. It's true: the food is awesome. And so am I.

Steak Frites medium rare = completely overcooked. Not a tint of red in the meat. No atmosphere and bathroom a joke (right next to bar with glass door). Won't be back.

I walked in to Prime Meats at 8:30 with my two daughters. I was told that there was an hour to hour and a half wait. I peeked into the main dining room and noticed several empty tables. Maybe I am missing something, they do not take reservations. I live in the neighborhood and have frequented Prime Meats quite often. The food is top notch and I am proud to have such a fine establishment in the'hood. But tonite was confounding why send people away with an empty dining room?

Went on the word of a fellow steak lover. Expecting a steak house. Instead saw all kinds of German fare on the menu from sausages to German dishes I couldn't pronounce. Basically one serious steak dish in the entire menu, strange. Stranger, it was being sold by the ounce at $3 per ounce. Therefore a steak will run you upwards of $70. Higher than any steak house I've been to in NYC. I've been to all of them. At least all the ones that matter. Nonetheless the philosophy presented on the menu was intriguing - simple selection and elegant descriptions. When you see a glossary for dishes on the back of a menu you're probably at a place where care is taken for the food put in front of you. But wait, the lumberjack server costumes are a bit gimmicky and some servers being in street clothes may communicate lack of regard for an upper crust dining experience. The expertise of the service is also a mismatch to the high level restauranteuring presented. Example, typically an upscale server knows every ingredient and preparation process for every dish on the menu, is articulate and anticipating with the diner. If you know how you like your food and how to ask questions about gourmet cuisine before you spend $275 on it, the service in general turns out to be a bit bumbling, Frankly. Also a little on the smart side rather than humble, noticed from the tables crammed up next to us but ours was a good old chap. Well intentioned overall. Back to steak, I went for the kill and was ready to denounce or proclaim unworthy yet another heinously overpriced cut of meat sold in NYC. On the contrary, this was close to the best, if not the best, steak I have had. Not an endorsement often heard by yours truly. To use the term deserving of the best, it was velvety. Juicy, tender, flavorful, well put together, layered. The thickness was supreme. A marvel that 15 to 20 minutes into the meal the cut was still retaining substantial heat. As for the rest, the bone marrow was respectable. The beet salad was an oddity out of place trying to hit too many notes; overloaded ingredients, confusing and inelegant. The carrots as said by others was well done and understated, good. The French apple cider was a wonder, probably the best apple cider I have enjoyed. You will spend for this meat and you will say it was worth it. That does not happen often in many a place claiming to be a steak house. Ironic, such a cut of meat expertly prepared, to be served at a restaurant that is not a steak house!

The Ribeye for 2 is delicious beyond belief - and the side carrots are the best side carrots ever delivered to a table. The rest of the sides could improve - and the pretzels are nothing to write home about - not sure why they're advertised at all - would rather have bread. Nonetheless,...this damn ribeye will knock your damn socks off - sick presentation,...amazing taste - word up in brooklyn yo!

We live in the neighborhood and are regulars at Frankie's Spuntino a few doors down. Great service, no attitude, delicious and subtle food. The crowds are what they are. However, Prime Meats has what appears to be a chronic problem. Maybe there's something essentially punitive in all that beautiful raw wood and the seatless bar, in all the prickly frontier promise of the layout, but there's a hostess/waitress who has, in the course of three visits over the course of a year, managed to insult us every time. We tend to blame ourselves in general at such moments, look for our own faults...but for now we've absorbed enough punishment, even if we really want to like this place.
