Steakhouse
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.

The crab cake was amazing, very juicy with not much filler. I wish they had a remoulade, but regardless it now rises to best in the city for me.

Incredibly disappointing in restaurants new iteration. Prices were outrageously expensive for ho hum food quality. Filet mignon at $50 plus was tasteless. Gratin potatoes too were tasteless. We will never go back. Feels like a tourist trap now.

The decor was very sophisticated. The music was lovely. The service was prompt, professional and personable.The food was delicious.
My only concern was the the women's room. Upon arrival, it was clean and well supplied. Upon leaving, it was unkept, short of supplies and needed cleaning. I did speak to the representatives of the Warwick Hotel. It was unacceptable.

we had a very disappointing experience, the service was horrendous, we had to wait forever to get menus, to get water, and between every course of the meal. We had to flag down other servers and staff for basic service. The food was very disappointing for the price, under seasoned and bland. we will not be returning.

We went to eat here on a Wednesday evening and had dinner at the bar. The food was outstanding; Wedge Salad, Coconut Shrimp, NY Strip, & Key Lime Pie. The bar is beautiful and so is the rest of the space. The service was phenomenal! Our bartender, David, had almost a full bar and yet was very attentive and knowledgeable! We will definitely be back soon!!!

Went to Rittenhouse grill recently for my sisters birthday. Half of our party was running late so we lost our table but I wasn’t even mad because we made out wonderfully at the bar. the staff did all they could do to hold our table but still made my sisters birthday dinner feel special! Ambiance is amazing, the piano and bass players were delightful and the drinks and bartender were outstanding! Only negative I had was that the food was alittle bland. I will be returning for cocktails with my friends!

I’ve been coming here since it opened and the food is consistent. Delicious, well prepared and fresh. It throws a nod to a former time and the live is o music is charming. The potato skins with horseradish sauce are surprisingly elevated and the crab cocktail is icy cold boasting huge chunks of meat. You cannot go wrong with the prime rib. (The restaurants former name). I love it here.

The food was okay but the service was lacking. There is a shortage of help at many restaurants these days so that may account for the lack of service. I would go again at a later date.

We had the best time! We loved the food, service and the whole feeling and look of the restaurant. We love linens on the tables too. The most impressive part of the nite is when we asked who the kind fella was and we had the honor of meeting Garth. No restaurant has the owner working as hard as his staff. We will definitely frequent The Rittenhouse Grill knowing that fact! Also thank you for accommodating us for being late due to finding parking… lol

when going out to a “upscale” restaurant I expect the bill to be pricey however I expect the food to be excellent and this was not the case , the food was just okay for the price it was not worth it . The steaks didn’t have has much flavor as other places . The best part of the dinner was the mud pie dessert . I won’t be coming back , not worth the money.
