Great Date Night Spot

Friends of ours suggested a night out at SB Prime...we accepted! From the website, it kind of looked like a steakhouse chain restaurant. When we arrived, I was totally shocked. Located right in the heart of Burlington, it is centrally located and has a nice, large patio. Walking in, you enter... read more

I took my husband to SB Prime for his Birthday Dinner as it so handy to "The Burlington Performing Arts" and I had bought tickets to see a great show. We had never dined here before as there are lots of great choices in downtown Burlington. But SB Prime is right across the street from "The Performing Arts Centre" so... More

Given a poor rating as server did not give us much attention. Steak did not come out medium rare as requested and confirmed by the server and the sides are a la cart and came out dried out and inedible. Had to send them back. For the high priced fare comes high expectations and they didn't even meet that. Do... More

Service was poor and half the items on the menu weren't even available to order. When we arrived, we had to wait for a waiter to seat us because the manager who was standing at the welcome desk was too busy looking at his phone. Bread was promptly served but wasn't replenished. When we were ready to order, the waiter... More

Incredible venue, location and food, only outdone by the attentiveness of the staff! We hosted a Canadian reception after returning from a destination wedding and chose Prime. The numbers grew to just over 50 which was a tad too many for the room, but the professionalism exuded by Paul, Jenn and Sydney the Chef to put this event together made... More

The restaurant has live music every weekday evening from, I think, 4 to 7. It provides a very pleasant background to go with fine food. While the prices, especially the wine, are not inexpensive, they do have a number of half or reduced price deals which bring the cost within reason. In fact the happy hour from 4 to 6... More

I hosted 25 clients here the first week of March. The room was excellent for my group, the food was very tasty and the cost was very reasonable. The mirror even turns into a TV which worked perfectly for out power point presentation . I will be using this venue again. Oh and the staff were amazing .

We visited this restaurant for the Taste of Burlington. As it was not too busy, we were looking forward to a leisurely meal. Instead, we felt rushed. Our appetizers arrived before our before-dinner drinks. Our waiter checked to see if we were still working on appetizers (we were) and he turned around and brought our mains anyway. We finally had...

We had a great lunch, food came quickly, service was good. The food tasted great and they had generous portions. We had the taste of Burlington menu, the starter salad was big and the mains were tasty.
