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.

I am sympathetic concerning the mixed reviews regarding Prime; the quality of the food and service versus the dollar value and am glad to share the following. Knowing my taste for haute cuisine, a business partner in Trinidad recommended we dine at Prime upon my visit last week. There are many fun and authentic restaurants in Trinidad, but not a... More

The food is good but not amazing. If you happen to come from Texas you would feel that this wasn't a place to write home about and also it costs far more than in the US. A meal for 2 with wine came to over US$500. It is used a lot by business people as the Marriott is next door... More

If you're a beef lover you'll find that food is good but not exceptional. But prices are exceptional. Service is professional and the deco is just impersonal but still correct. So in my humble opinion it's POOR VALUE FOR MONEY and I will definitely not go back if I'm the one who pays.

Prime is not open for lunch and is very expensive for dinner. The first thing you notice is the lack of women. It is really just for business men who want steak and are on expense accounts. I went with a friend and saw the manager being very nice to the men but not so much with us. The food... More

Great beef, good service, decent wine list - but sadly anonymous interior and food design so that this place could be anywhere in the USA or even anywhere in the world. Pricey.

Prime is a restaurant that I dine in very frequently. The food is great but what is outstanding about this place is service. Debra is top notch and does not compromise. The staff is courteous, well trained and very professional. My favourite is the Creamed Spinach. The prices are reasonable considering quality. Menu gets boring after a while. I have... More
