I'm not sure why this restaurant is not in the top 10 in Key West, because it should be. We live in Key West and have tried almost everything, this was one of our last places to try for the first time and it was amazing. The service was great, drinks were awesome and the food...AMAZING... This is without a... More

Visited late August as a party of 4. Two adults and two children aged 10 and 7. We arrived at 6.45 as we couldn't find the place. We walked up and down a place called Dante ' s only to be told by a guy singing downstairs that we needed to go upstairs (really need some signs). On arrival we... More

Don't get me wrong, We did have a very pleasant dining experience at Prime. It strikes me though as the kind of place people only go to if there is a special occasion to celebrate. We were seated right away in an extremely large booth in the corner of the room. The dining room is very dark, I do enjoy... More

Went here to celebrate my 20 year of military service with my wife. We had reservations for 6pm and were promptly seated, however they seated us in what seemed like a private small room which was absolutely amazing and probably why I thought this place was amazing. The atmosphere was great and the service was fantastic. The food was delightful,... More

We ordered from the appetizer menu only since we wanted a variety of choices at the table. We ordered the antipasto plate which was larger than expected. The carpaccio plate was large as well and was quickly a favorite. Our second round we ordered the escargot and oysters Rockefeller. The escargot was flavorful but the oysters Rockefeller were amazing! We... More

Our first time dinning at Prime Steakhouse was a memorable experience. The food was excellent. I had the Mangrove Snapper special with crab and my husband had the veal chop, both were excellent. The service was outstanding and the atmosphere made me feel I was in a elegant island environment of the 1950s. I made our reservations on line with... More

This restaurant is trying to pull off fine dining but it can't when the food is bad. There is no excuse for lousy food in a restaurant. The steaks were not even average, they were bad. The spinach was bad. The bread was good but not over the top. The service was good and the wine list was good. The... More

Great experience here. Wait staff was very attentive but not overbearing. My steak was cooked perfectly medium, unlike most other places where it's a gamble as to how cooked it ends up being. They serve the steak with a BBQ sauce on the side, but don't waste a bite on it - the steak is so good that it would... More

When we booked our trip to Key West, we wanted to go for a good steak dinner. After doing some research, we found Prime through Tripadvisor. We went during the week and had a reservation, but it wasn't extremely busy. Compared to other steakhouses on the mainland, it was a little pricey. The food, however, was well worth it. Steaks...
