Great Lunch

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.

With friends we often enjoy happy hour at SB Prime, so we decided with a group to have a dinner..... 3 out 6 did not think our dinners were good. My steak was tough and cold, almost precooked and the slapped on the grill before serving..... very disapointing. I guess we will stick with happy hour.

Very good food. Main drawback was the poor service - felt like we got a trainee. Overall compares well to the other restaurants in the area for quality vs price.

The reason we visited was we were given gift certificates to use at this restaurant. Friendly staff but thats as far as it goes. Bad experience with the steak, not a good piece, not cooked right! Just bad! Value for cost of food is poor. Cost of steaks at $33.00 for entree with no sides. Sides are $7.00 plus Re:... More

While visiting Burlington, I had the privilege of stumbling upon this fabulous place! We were there during night time hours. This place has amazing ambiance. There was live music and everyone was dancing and having a wonderful time! Their "Primed & Ready To Go" espresso martini is out of this world! Everyone else in my party was completely blown away...

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

Lovely lounge area, that has a nice relaxed atmosphere while maintaining a classy, modern appearance. Incredible menu that contains such delights as my favorites, the shrimp avocado appetizer, rack of lamb as a main followed by the chocolate tart for... More
