This is my husband and my favourite restaurant in Trinidad...Exceptional service, most delectable foods and outstanding Bellini's. Every special occasion or just a date night out, never disappointed.

Fantastic steaks cooked to perfection. Great sides as well. Have not yet tried the seafood but I've heard good things. Of course, walk with your credit card because they are a bit expensive. Good service too - waiter was always pleasant and checked on us periodically.

The steak was asked to be medium prepared but blood was rolling from it the side dish of plantain was cut up llike a stew and dumped in a bowl. The food was poor the service was worse considering it... More

My husband and I had dinner at Prime to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. The service was excellent but the food lacked a lot of taste! We both had shrimp cocktail to start with and the shrimp were huge but the taste of cocktail sauce was very bland. For the main course, we had the Lobster Tail, this was... More

No need to elaborate, as my previous reviews say it all. Back for the fourth time and took 5 new people to Prime. They all agreed the quality of the food and the service rivals anywhere in the USA. The only comment is the décor is very minimal and not 'Steakhouse' but then Prime is more than just Steak. The... More

We visited this restaurant with high expectations. However, after our experience, we were disappointed. This restaurant is targeted to the elite and is supposed to exceed one's expectations in every form. My boyfriend ordered a prime cut of steak and had it prepared medium-well, but when he received it, it was hard to cut with the steak knife and quite... More

I had dinner at this restaurant and the food was excellent. It is very elegant and could be a restaurant in the best locations in London or New York. The wine list was excellent and I was very surprised to see some of the world's most sort after vintages on the list. From the setting outside to entering this restaurant... More

The food was good but not exceptional. I opted for a rib eye steak and it wasn't anything to talk about. I've had better elsewhere. The service was good with well informed waiting staff. However the restaurant is a bit pricey.
