The Setting and the Service

You are treated as an important guest the moment your car is valet parked, your coat is checked, and you are taken to your seat. The interior of Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse is gorgeous in a modern art-deco style with cherry wood throughout, beautiful art work, romantic lighting, soft music flowing, and inviting white linen cloth tables.

The service at Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse is unparalleled and formal. During our visit, the general manager, Patrick McCune, stopped by to be certain we were pleased.

The Food

Our dinner began with a special occasion appetizer of sushi tuna topped with vegetables, absolutely remarkable and fresh. Our first course began with thick, creamy, flavorful lobster bisque accompanied by a bread basket of scrumptious treats. Large house salads followed, topped with plentiful fresh vegetables and house vinaigrette dressing.

I chose their signature dish Steak Kosar (picture at right), a tender, melt-in-your-mouth, 7oz filet mignon crowned with steamed lobster & béarnaise and drenched with a creamy bordelaise sauce. It came with fresh, crisp asparagus and mushroom caps. My husband enjoyed the spicier Steak Nicklaus, a hearty 14oz New York Strip covered in a Cognac bordelaise sauce and fresh peppercorns that made the dish burst with flavor.

Side dishes are meant to be shared. A house favorite are the potatoes Gruyere gratin which is layer after layer of creamy cheesy potato goodness with a crispy top. Another side that I recommend is the wild mushroom sauté; it is that perfect combination of mushrooms that fills your mouth with flavor.

Dessert at Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse

To finish our meal, our Gigantic Chocolate Cake (pictured at left) was served and three people from the table nearby rushed over to see the amazing treat! It is four layers of moist, delightful chocolate cake with creamy chocolate frosting, topped with walnuts. The menu says it feeds two to four people, but could easily feed six.
