2nd time in 10yrs I went here with my family and still this place disappointed. Flavorless overcooked steaks, rubber instead of lobster and exorbitant prices. There are much better bang for your buck and 1000% better quality restaurants nearby! This place needs to learn how to write their menu. Today was creamed spinach that had no mention of truffle oil... More

Having traveled the Caribbean for over 30 years, one thing I've always had a problem with is finding a place with great steaks. One of my customers invited us to dinner at Prime and I was impressed! The venue is exquisitely decorated. What you would expect from a prime steakhouse! The staff was very knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. The steaks... More

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.

This was one of the worst experiences. The waiter was rude and tended to correct our choices from the menu. 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
