Has it really been four years since we published our review of Red Prime Steak? Why yes, it looks like it has. Must be time to take another look at this now-well-established steakhouse in downtown Oklahoma City.

Since I wrote the original review (still listed in full below), I thought providing a second perspective would be good. So, my wife and I joined up with EatAroundOKC writer Sarah Sutton and her husband for a delightful evening out at Red Prime Steak. This was their first trip to Red Prime and here’s a bit of what Sarah had to say:

“This would be our first visit, so I wanted to peruse the menu beforehand to see what was going on. If I have one complaint, it’s that the online menu is practically hidden. I had to poke around and never did find it. Finally, Tim had to send me a link.

“But, once you find the menu, it’s pure delight just to read it. I knew my over-40 brain was going to have trouble narrowing down a selection, as it all sounded fabulous.

“Of course, carnivore husband knew immediately what he was going for — the 7 oz prime filet ($31) with a brown sugar and sea salt crust. He said it was cooked absolutely perfectly. I had almost settled on the same cut of meat with the bleu cheese crust until I heard about the seafood special of the evening — grilled sea bass over an onion risotto, grilled asparagus, bacon-wrapped scallops and a bacon relish drizzled on the plate ($36 – see a pic). They had me right there and it was perfectly delicious.

“We all split a few side dishes and I got to try the green chile mac, the sweet potato-bacon hash and the fresh seared green beans (see a pic). All had a unique flavor and was something to savor with each bite.

“As an onion lover, one of the things I appreciated about the evening was the variety of ways Red Prime used onions. First, in our appetizer of fried green tomatoes (see a pic), they adorned the tops with sweet, caramelized onion. Then, on top of my salad (see a pic), they sprinkled a type of french-fried onion with a bit of a kick. And finally, the onion risotto was mild and very tasty.

“The atmosphere at this restaurant is about as cool as it gets. It’s in an old building on Automobile Alley which has, of course, been refurbished and updated. But I love how the character of the original structure still shines through.

“Every employee we interacted with was extremely knowledgeable and professional, knowing right when to be at our table without being overly helpful. It was a delightful experience all around. We can’t wait to take the steak-lovers in the family back to visit.”

As you can see, Sarah had a very positive experience at Red Prime. I, too, must admit that the experience for me was even better than my original trip so many years ago. My filet, encrusted with guajillo chile ($31 - see a pic), was just about as good as it gets and I enjoyed trying some of the very creative side dishes and appetizers I hadn’t had before.

Something Red Prime has added since our original review is their Prix Fixe menu. For just under $40, one gets to choose an appetizer, entree, side and dessert from a pretty decent set of options. Given that steaks by themselves range from $30-$45 on the regular menu, the Prix Fixe option is certainly attractive. Of course, even at $40 per person, Red Prime is still, for me, very much a special occasion restaurant. But it’s a good one, and one to which I hope to return soon.

Original review from October of 2007:

Red Prime Steak in Downtown Oklahoma City

I recently got to check out one of Oklahoma City’s newest restaurants. Red Prime Steak is a new upscale steakhouse brought to you by the folks behind Cheever’s and Iron Starr. I love their first two restaurants so expectations for this new place were high.

One thing I love about Red Prime Steak is the location. It’s downtown, but not in Bricktown. It’s in the old Buick building at 4th street and Broadway. I love to see new places opening up in this area. Let’s hope they can sustain and continue to encourage more growth and revitalization downtown.

The restaurant brings a couple of things that are extremely unique.

First, the interior renovations really stand out. They are the reason for my inclusion of the word “ultra-hip” in the title of my post. It’s not that I’m 100% sure you would really categorize it has ultra-hip if your job were classifying interiors, but when you compare it to the landscape of restaurant interiors we currently have in Oklahoma City, Red Prime’s look definitely sets itself apart in the ultra-hip direction.

Concrete flooring, exposed 18 foot ceilings, and a smattering of very thin, brilliant, red lighting instruments set the stage. An enormous floor to ceiling wire mesh serves as a wine rack and requires the wait staff to utilize a home-depot-like aisle ladder to retrieve certain vintages. Also intriguing is the use of enclosed, circular leather booths which provide a few “private” dining areas amidst the rest of the “open” seating. So, if you are looking for a lively atmosphere, stick with the open tables, but if you want something a little more private (and quiet) ask for one of the booths.

The second unique treatment Red Prime brings is their use of crusts and sauces. With each steak, you can choose up to two crusts or sauces (more are available for an extra charge). Now, I’m not much for putting sauces on really good steaks. I mean, what’s the point in paying for a quality steak and then drowning out the flavor with a pungent sauce? The crusts, however, are very intriguing and tasty.

You can choose from a list of crust options — everything from black pepper to unique chile peppers — to be encrusted onto your meat as it is cooked. I chose the guajillo chile crust and I highly recommend it for a little kick that doesn’t overpower the flavor of the meat.

Now for my complaint — I have just one. There’s no brewed iced tea. If you ask for iced tea, they bring you a bottle of something. Now look, I’m all for trying to be fancy, but I’ve been to some really nice restaurants in a lot of really large cities and most everywhere I’ve been, even the highest of the highest end, has served fresh brewed iced tea. Not only that, but even my favorite restaurant of all time, the Gotham Bar and Grill in Manhattan, provides iced tea with free refills, and it doesn’t get really any more upscale than the Gotham.

So, I would recommend that Red Prime make fresh brewed iced tea with refills an option. I mean really, it’s just about as common as water. Sure, you won’t make as much money on it as the bottled stuff, but really, is that a reason to withhold something so basic?

Speaking of money, you will spend a good bit visiting the Red Prime. I was fortunate enough to be treated by my parents on my visit (thanks mom and dad), and I would have to reserve any future trip for a pretty special occasion as the price is a bit prohibitive for me to make it a regular stop. But if you are looking for a high-end experience in OKC, I definitely think Red Prime offers a unique and modern flair that you won’t find at any other “steakhouse” in this city.

    I haven’t eaten at Red Prime yet because as a vegetarian, I don’t frequent steakhouses that often. But as a huge fan of Cheevers, and because we just up the street, we visited the red bar when they first opened. RPG has a great wine list, but really is very expensive and a little to “poncy” for my personal taste, but overall it was a good experience.

    Incidentally, when I inquired at the bar if they had any meatless options at all, the bartender immediately summoned someone (the sommelier, I think, of all people) to allay my fears. He promised they could put something together for me if I would just let them know, and invited me to call ahead so they could prepare with the shopping. They seemed completely prepared to accomadate me for dinner. Based on the wonderful experiences I’ve had at Cheevers with Chef Don, I’m sure this is the case.

    BTW: Next time you go, if you have “room for dessert,” I definitely recommend their creme brulee. It’s perhaps the best I’ve had in OKC. Exquisite, in fact!

    Hey Caryl, thanks for the great insight.

    I didn’t try their creme brulee but my wife and I love that dessert. We may have to check it out based on your reco.

  • Caryl says:
    October 7th, 2007 at 9:46 pm   

    You definitely should. We almost always go for the creme brulee, which is a dessert you can frequently judge a restaurant by – and there’s was the best (and the biggest!). As good as anything I’ve had across the pond. Incidentally, it wasn’t Cheever’s I was thinking of when I wrote my comment… it was Tom and Jerry’s… sorry!

    Ate at Red Prime last night…we were with a group and wound up in a red circular room which we accessed by a circular walkway hall…that was kind of fun…

    I got the 10 oz fillet and Greg got the dry ribeye…something like that. We both got the blue cheese rub and the mushroom sauce, which came in a little bowl of its own.

    We had the RP tomato salad…split it and I wished we hadn’t…heirloom tomatoes, fried green tomatoes and mozerella cheese…maybe the best thing of the night for me.

    Since we were with a group and the sides are served family style, we had a number to sample…broccoli and cheese was good but nothing spectacular…pan fried spinach was crunchy, which made for an interesting surprise. Asparagus slivers were good and I probably would choose them for my green vegetable the next time.

    We tried the au gratin potatoes and the mashed and they were both fine…I love corn casserole and it was good but not sweet…kind of a little spicy. Carrots were cinnamon scented and good but I wouldn’t want a whole bowl to myself.

    The take away (in my opinion) of the sides was the green chile mac and cheese. Very good.

    Coffee was excellent after dinner. We both got (bad planning) the fudge spoon cake and it was not near what I expected after such a meal. I would not get it again. If I were to try again for a dessert, despite the name, I would probably get the (gag) chicken fried strawberry shortcake. Almost got it yesterday, but chocolate won out, much to my chagrin.

    $$$$ for sure, but we will probably go back. The steak, the tomato salad and the mac and cheese were worth a return trip and others thought the crab cakes and tamales were excellent as well…

    It took us forever to eat dinner there though…a group of 10 and we were there from 6:45 to 10:15…maybe that’s not long to some, but there were some huge lags between courses…all that to say, prepare for the possibility of staying awhile.

    We ate at Red Prime for our anniversary, right after they opened. Kenny is actually not much of a steak eater, mostly because he likes his meat so well done it often looks and tastes like shoe leather. Anyway, he and I both agreed that this was by far the best steak we’d ever had in OKC. (I’d say The Ranch is a close second.)Even his well done filet was tender and flavorful. We went on a Sunday night and it was not busy at all. Our service was excellent and friendly. We also had the creme brulee and it was indeed wonderful (and big!)And, the urban feel is definitely unique for this area. All in all a fun “special occasion” place that we will return to as well.
    Great website!

    Caryl, don’t worry about being vegetarian at Red Prime. The sides here are to die for. They are served family style so you will need someone to share with you. I had the ginger carrots which even my children loved. I can’t remember exactly the other side I had but I think one was a corn bread pudding and of course the green beans. If you haven’t tried Iron Starr, their barbeque restaurant you need to because they also have an extensive list of sides.

    I took my husband to Red Prime this weekend for his birthday, decor is trendy and attractive and we have been waiting for a special occassion.

    We have been previously for drinks and appetizers at the bar, we had the sloppy joes and onion rings. Sloppy joes were an interesting appetizer for a steakhouse, not very impressive. The bartender raved about the onion rings, they were heavily battered and a bit salty, you could barely taste the sweet onions.

    With that on the backbone, I was not dying to have dinner there, but it was a special occassion. First of all, I am a beliver of not covering a goods steak with too many seasonings and sauces. We both ordered the aged rib-eye and shared the horseradish potato gratin, we wanted to leave room for dessert. My husband ordered the steak with the coffee crust and house steaksauce, the steak sauce was nothing memorable. I ordered the salt and sugar crust with the truffle butter, truffle butter is served on the side as a cold pat of butter, if you are going to pay $43 for a steak, you would think they would serve the truffle butter on the steak so it could melt on the way to the table. Both of us ordered our steaks medium rare, these steaks were definitely rare and not cooked as requested. Either their steaks were not really “dry aged” or their steak knives that they present to you are horribly dull, we both had trouble cutting our steaks, it could also be that it was served rare. The plates that the steaks are served on were cold, the sauces were cold, not my idea of a fine steakhouse. The horseradish potato gratin was good but there was no horseradish flavor. We decided to skip dessert as everything we have tried so far was not impressive. Our next special ocassion, we will go back to Mahagony, their steaks come out searing hot and simply seasoned so you can appreciate the steak, something you could never accomplish at home, so well worth the $$$.

    LNC, thanks for sharing the contrasting opinion. Good to hear a different perspective.

    I agree 100% on the idea of not covering up a steak with too many seasonings and sauces, but I have to say that is one of the things I liked about Red Prime. I think the “crust” option gives a nice flavor addition without overpowering the steak. I never use the sauces because I just don’t believe in putting sauce of any kind on a great steak, but I think the crusts are a nice enhancement that I haven’t seen many other places.

    I have not yet tried Mahagony, but I will have to check it out sometime. Thanks again.

    Cynthia, the red round room is actually an old turntable that cars used to sit on in the showroom bacj when the building was a Buikc dealership. I heard that the owners were wanting the room to rotate but were unable to find the proper machinery to get everything to work.

    I love this place but unfortunately had a bad experience recently while taking my Mother here who was in from Seattle. Someone in the kitchen was tripping out on the Salt shaker. The steaks were so salted and the fried spinach was so salted that it made you pucker and cringe. They comped the steaks… it was still sad. I love this place. No one wants to see their kobe over salted…

    Red Prime is personally my favorite steakhouse in Oklahoma. The atmosphere is topped only by the quality of the food. I don’t branch out much now that I’ve found my favorite cut: the 10 ounce Ribeye with black pepper crust and truffle butter is unequaled. If God raised a cow, killed it, grilled it and added truffle butter you would basically have the exact same steak…. A Vegetarian should hate this place because for every 28 day dry aged Ribeye they don’t eat I will eat three.
    The corn cassorole is a little too “liquid smoke flavored” but still good. The broccoli with melted cheese is very fresh and a huge portion. The dessert we had most recently was basically a bowling ball of vanilla ice cream rolled in white chocolate, milk chocolate, almonds, pecans, and then drizzled with more chocolate. Oh yeah, it was slapped on top of a huge hot brownie. What? That’s right, a huge brownie. Anyone foreign nation that looks at America and says we’re too fat or too wasteful could win the argument with a single poloroid of this dessert. Try having more than a couple bites after a steak. Which I don’t know if I mentioned yet or not but it’s amazing.

    My husband and I went last winter and were very disappointed. The lobster martini was drenched in this creamy liquid and the only other item we could taste was the (overuse of) pineapple; it was awful and the lobster was beyond over-powerd. The steaks were wonderful, done as we had asked, very tender and very flavourful however, the sides we ordered (potato gratin and asparagus) were very rich and made the meal far too heavy. How can asparagus be made rich, I have no idea. The “signature” red velvet cupcakes were dry and certainly nothing special, to say the least. Also, considering we were there celebrating and had informed them when we made the reservations, it was unfitting that we were seated at a table at the very front of the restaurant, where the setting sun was in our eyes, amongst three other larger parties who were obviously there for business. As a mark on the service, they took far too long to return to us with the bottle of wine we had ordered and didn’t pour a tasting for one of us to try before setting the bottle down and leaving. Given that the bottle was almost $100, it would have been nice to have proper wine service.

    So to conclude, while the steaks themselves were up to expectations (as they should be for a steakhouse), the remainder of the meal was not and we wont be back.

    We went to Red Prime 2 nights in a row. I was somewhat disappointed with how slow and relatively unattentive the service was on this night despite the fact that it was a very slow evening the 1st night. Our server just seemed to be out of touch with his guests.

    The following night with another group, we had much better service; however when our meal arrived it was on the warm-side vs. hot(like it had set at the pass longer than it should because either the server was busy or not attentive to his tickets).

    No matter how ‘great’ the food is (or expensive for that matter), if the service doesn’t match the overall dining experience is significantly diminished. This is a nice (different) steak house, I hope it improves !

    I am now glad that I did not read the reviews here before my experience at RP. I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth and have very little experience with upscale dining. But I know excellent food and excellent service when I see it. RP has some strong culinary points but there is room for improvement.

    Strong points first: the fried green tomato appetizer is an unexpected choice, yet easily the best dish of the evening. Running a very close second place are the sea scallops. Every bite of scallop was tender heaven. However, the sauce they were bedded on was an issue. The somewhat gritty/grainy texture and bland flavor detracted from the simple beauty of the scallops. After a few bites, and some debate with my fiancee, we figured it out. Pureed beans. Tasted canned. The scallops would have been better seared and naked or drizzled with some clarified butter, garlic and fresh herbs. Some things are just better left alone!

    Fiancee ordered the steak. Oh boy, not so hot. We were expecting better, but received mediocre at best. Again, I know great steak when I indulge in one. This may sound like sacrelige to some, but the very best steak I have EVER had was the $36.00 one at Toby Keith’s! And yes, I’ve been to cattleman’s. Lots I wasn’t impressed with there, but that’s another story.

    Ian, our sommiler, was a patient, friendly, fun guide through the intimidating list at RP. It was easy to see that he truly loves his job. You can’t fake glow and ability. He helped me select a lovely Riesling that paired perfectly with the infamous scallops. Fiancee was content with his Hoegaarden, but took a chance and ordered one of the Merlots Ian suggested. He hated it. I adored it – and I’m not a Merlot girl at all, but had no problem finishing his for him. (At $10.00 a glass, you better believe I wasn’t about to let that go to waste lol)

    My espresso martini just needed to have a little more sweetness and a stronger coffee flavor and it would’ve hit the mark. That said, it was still a great pick me up.

    Some funny points of the evening: I tried to wind down my window and hand the valet guy the $5.00 to park our car when he walked up. But he was only trying to open my door for me! Then, once seated, they brought out this lovely little slab of what I was sure was cheesecake. I was excited and got ready to take a bite with my fork and my fiancee started laughing his head off. He asked me what I was doing – I said gettin ready to eat a bite of this cheesecake. THAT’S BUTTER, silly, he said. Really?? I didn’t believe him till he buttered a roll with some for me. I laughed so hard my stomach hurt. After we got a little more familliar with our servers, we had them laughing along with us too. So, what the food was missing we made up for in having fun…

    I would love to go back for those tomatoes – my God… and perhaps try a different martini. Otherwise, a little too expensive for my wallet and maybe a bit fancy for my usual comfort zone which hovers somewhere between Favorite’s Diner and Shiki Steakhouse.

    Impressive place. The red neon takes a little getting used to. In the end, I liked it. The layout of Red Prime is kind of ingenious in the way it divides the main dining floor into a bunch of little intimate nooks.

    The prix fixe menu is a good value. I liked the pepper crust on my prime sirloin, but I agree with some others that a less sharp-flavored crust would enable you to savor the meat better.

    Good wine list with smart choices in the Pinot Noir and Zinfandel territory. Creative cocktails, too.

    Overall, Red Prime is not quite up to the plush standards of the Boulevard Steakhouse, but it is still very good. We enjoyed ourselves.

    Ok, had the chance to visit Red Prime last week, and stumbled across Wagyu Wednesday by complete accident. Let me tell you, this is absolutely rediculous. Food should not taste this good. For $35 I got a Wagyu Kobe Tenderloin, potato and brussel sprout. It was absolutely amazing.

    Awesome looking restaurant, terrible food. My husband and I ate here for my birthday. The service is slow and the food is comparable to something you would get at an all night restaurant. I ordered my steak medium well and it came out rare. I asked them to cook it a little longer and it came out medium rare. The third time it was a black charred piece of fat. We were very disappointed in the entire 120.00 meal. Definately not worth the money. Maybe a good place to hang out at the bar just for the atmosphere. I usually never complain and have actually never sent food back but I could not eat that cold bloody steak. You can find a better steak at just about any restaurant in Oklahoma. Then they comped our cold mashed potatoes to make up for it. Worst birthday dinner ever!

    Have been to Red Prime five times now as it has been one of my favorites in town.

    As mentioned before, the RP Tomatoes and Green Chile Mac are both excellent. The steak is different but usually very good. (I’ve had one charred that seriously made me consider going back) and the wine is generally very complimentary.

    I’ve always ordered the 7oz filet, and in the last year ordered the same steak off the Prix Fix menu, it seems the quality has dropped off. Maybe they don’t pay as much attention to the ‘cheap tables’. After visiting The Ranch last month and then coming back, I knew that something was missing.

    Steak 3/5
    Everything else 5/5

    My steak was good (not great) but undercooked per my order. Service was good. The interior was supposedly trendy but it looked like They just threw up some red lights in warehouse. Price was on par with Mickey mantle’s and opus but not as good in the quality department. Saltgrass (Norman) steaks are as good or better and price is less than half that of red prime. To sum it up- if spending a lot on dinner and red lights make you happy you’ll love this place. The food is above average but nothing special.

    PS- the outdoor dining area blocks all but 12″ of the sidewalk so if you’re in a wheelchair don’t try to access the front door from the South. Regulations require 36″ of clearance to be wheelchair accessible so it’ll probably be taken care of when the city finds out.

    Just to second the first post, months ago, when one member of my dining party mentioned she was a vegetarian, she enjoyed the same response. The waitress said one of the cooks is a vegetarian, and they would prepare something special for her. I fail to remember what it was, though.

    My husband and have eaten at Red several times. It IS the best steakhouse in OKC, hands down! We have never had anything less than an amazing experience there. We always leaving feeling stuffed and completely satisfied. Throw ‘giddy’ in there too! Food is THAT good. Yum and then some!

    My husband took me here last month for our anniversary. It was a first for both of us. Let me just say…OH.MY.GOSH!! I am in love. At first, I did kind of roll my eyes at the “decor”, but who cares!? The food was delicious, I have been dreaming of having that meal again ever since. I have to agree that the service was superb. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful, but did not hover. I had the kobe skirt steak (I think that was the name, I know Kobe was in there) with the brown sugar crust and it was divine. But first thing, I had this amazing salad, again, I can’t remember the name but it had cous cous, corn, cranberries, bacon, oh my it was yummy. We split the creamed corn and it was seriously delicious! We also tried the flash fried spinach, which wasn’t something we would order again, but it was definitely cool to try once. I also really enjoyed their beer selection. We ended the night with the creme brûlée, something neither of us had tried before, and again, it was delicious. Simple and sweet but not overpowering or too rich. All in all, I am trying to get all my friends to go to this place and I cannot wait to go back.

    My wife and I planned on eating here a while back, however we turned around and left after the attitude we received from the host. When we arrived the host asked if we had a reservation and when we said “no” he responded with an attitude that communicated “how dare you come our fabulous restaurant without a reservation”. So we ended up leaving.

    Now, I do admit that it was my fault for not calling ahead of time to check availability and get a reservation, but a host could at least treat people with some respect and respond in a better way.

    So, we took our money to another prime steakhouse that evening, and I don’t believe we will be trying Red Prime for some time.

Please tell us what you think.
