I had the opportunity to organize a Christmas Party for 22 ladies at SB Prime In Burlington. The separate room was tastefully decorated, the service was outstanding as well as the choices for the evening, which were a choice from 3 appetizers, 3 entrees and 2 desserts for a very reasonable price. To top if off, the food was great!... More

I attended a private function a few weeks ago; Initially I was looking forward to the change of venue as our group typically goes to the same restaurant. However, I was quite disappointed. I ordered the sword fish and it was dry in addition to that the asparagus was old and woody. I also noticed that my colleague's asparagus was... More

Went with a friend for a birthday lunch and the creativity, taste and presentation of the food was great. The dining room has a modern, clean look and feel. The service was friendly and our server brought a yummy piece of cheesecake for the birthday...it looked like art on a plate. To my happy surprise there was no charge for... More

I am frequently at SB Prime with friends and co-workers and it is always a great experience. Much better than typical bar food, the menu is unique and delicious.

The dining area was small but very nice. The waiter took our drink order eventually. We waited 15 minutes to get our drinks. We had to pretty much beg for another. We weren't offered a third, so we went elsewhere. He was not attentive. We ordered oysters. They were great. I got swordfish. It was dry and flavorless and I... More

We organized a work event/dinner for 9 people in mid August and to say it was disappointing was an understatement. The waiter would leave us sitting with no service in the back room. When one of us would go and check to see where he was, he would be chatting up another one of the staff and clearly was not... More

Our trip to Prime was to celebrate my husbands 30th birthday. We went here to support local business and avoid the same old thing you get from franchised owned steak houses. We were impressed by the piano lounge area and the modern, rustic ambience of the dinning room. My husband ordered the the lobster rolls for an appetizer (which were... More
