Our apps were quite good, then the meal came and all went downhill:( My friends stuffed chicken was so DRY, she asked if I wanted... More

After seeing an ad in the local paper, we decided to try out SB Prime for their Friday piano bar. What a great time! Music was 1st class. Happy Hour specials were great value. The food was excellent and the staff and patrons were friendly. We highly recommend and will be back soon!!!

Been meaning to write this for awhile. My wife and I are looking for a nice place for lunch and with everything Burlington has to offer we chose Prime. What reminded me to "rate" Prime was today, at work, a customer was going to lunch with their wife and hadn't decided where to eat. I'm thinking of our fantastic lunch... More

The Burlington Autism Gala wanted to do things differently...reach out to our sponsors and members of the press in a different way...hit them with style. SB Prime delivered on every item of our wish list. Our guests were treated to amazing service and incredible food. We couldn't have asked for anything more. The bar area was able to accomodate all...

SB Prime has become our place to go Friday after work and we have always enjoyed both excellend food and service. I personally feel that the service you receive makes all the difference and can either taint the experience or make you want to go back. Everyone at SB Prime goes out of their way to ensure it's the latter.... More

We arrived before 5:30, for a 6:00 reservation thinking that we would sit at the bar and have a few drinks before dinner. They immediately tried to sit us in the dining room. When we asked if we could stay at the bar for a bit we were told that they had a ninety minute maximum time limit per table.... More

After being disappointed by the fact that one of the app's and one of the entree's that we had ordered , on A Saturday night at 6:30pm, were not available, the evening was saved by A very apologetic server and A very gracious Manager. When the food did arrive everything was great and Steaks were done perfectly. We will definitely... More

The good food and service at our recent dinner was overshadowed by music so loud one could not easily carry on a conversation and temperatures so cool in the restaurant that were so cool my feet were still cold even though I had on insulated socks. Management did have the music turned down on request but it was still overbearing.... More

Thank you for the review and letting everyone know you enjoyed the food and service. Sorry that the piano player was a little too loud in the Dining Room, it can be, at times, a challenge getting musicians to play at the right levels. I agree it has been quite a cold winter and unfortunately we are part of a... More

Had dinner last night at Prime. What a fantastic experience! It was our first visit and it was just what we were looking for. The smaller dining area makes for a cozy more intimate dining experience which was perfect for our date night out. We will definitely recommend Prime in Burlington to others and we will for sure be back.... More

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and that you were happy with Chris' service. Most importantly it makes me smile knowing that we helped make Date Night a success.

Lovely experience. The dining area is a lot smaller and intimate than expected, but it really added to the coziness. When we first arrived, there was only one table of six seated and our first thought was, why is it so quiet…but clearly we arrived just prior to the next sitting, because it was full about 15-20 min. later.
