    Share the King Henry cut with a friend. It's a good size meal even for two guys. Splitting fee is $7.50.

    The atmosphere is a trip but the prime rib is mediocre and the whole experience is overrated.

    Prime rib, spinach, house cut

    A-Mazing! Get the smallest cut, so you can enjoy all the sides. The mashed potatoes and creamed spinach are so yummy, but you can always get a baked potato and sautéed spinach. But why would you?

    With reservation, it's still 30 mins wait. The service is really sub par :(

    Order any of the cuts bigger than the city slice, finish your meat, and get a free second serving (that you can pack up to go)

    The prime rib and the salad

    Not much else has to be said about HoPR. Get the house cut, mashed potatoes, and skip the Yorkshire pudding in favor of the cornbread and sourdough. Leave room for (free) seconds!

    English cut

    Jason Luk · July 5, 2015

    The meat was perfect. was very tender and juicy and is being served in their own tasty sauce. The baked potato was fantastic. Yes the place is a tad pricey.

    Don't be shy about asking for an extra slice

    Nice place for formal dinners. Meat quality is outstanding.

    Carlos Andrade · May 24, 2015

    Eat the Yorkshire pudding and creamed spinach, they're the perfect accents to the prime rib. Oh and you won't regret getting the King Henry cut

    Meat, meat, meat! Come with an empty stomach.

    Nothing!!! And bad service

    If you are getting the King slice of prime rib, the baked potato might be too much. The mashed potatoes were a much more comfortable portion.

    A kind of delicious prime rib which is different from what I tried before. They give u sides too like Yorkshire pudding and creamed spinach.

  • Sirma S.

    The service felt like they were trying to get us out as fast as they can. Prime rib was good; nothing too extraordinary. The sides were too salty and heavy.

    House cut, baked potato, creamed spinach, dirty martini, second slice

    The prime rib just melts in your mouth. The salad is tossed right in front of you at your table. The staff is excellent. Mashed potatoes is perfect. Great for group outtings. Valet is pretty cheap

    You want to eat like a king? Eat here. All you need to do is order the King Henry the VIII Cut. They'll take care of the rest.

    This restaurant is 99.9% perfection. Service,ambiance,food are awesome. The Manhattan's can be a bit light on flavor. Just order a Blanton's Bourbon to go with your prime rib. 100% perfection!

    Bourbon🍸Explorer · September 7, 2014
  • Bourbon🍸Explorer

    Awesome meal! Just get the King Henry the VIII Cut it's only a few bucks more. If you don't finish it,you have left overs. If you do+want more you get a 2nd smaller serving of prime rib w/more sides.

    Bourbon🍸Explorer · September 6, 2014

    The prime rib really is amazing. I couldn't finish the house cut, but it was only $2 more than the city cut, so it was worth a shot!

    It was good prime rib but don't plan on having a conversation. Really loud.

    Prime ribs. Must get regular cuts. Do yourself a favor, Don't be cute and order three thin slices. That's not gonna be worthy of your hard earn money. Their cream spinach is superb!

  • Nicholas B.

    You don't need a reservation at the bar and can order from the full menu, get things like salad and baked potatoes a la carte, or just enjoy a cocktail and people watch.
