Best steak around

This is a treat. The steak is exceptional! The service is superior and the ambience is rather private and lovely. It is not terribly noisey as the private booth areas are romantic. You don't have to order steak but I would again and again. The menu includes fish and veal as well as some pasta... read more

I should have written a review after our first meal at Prime last December. Unfortunately, the flu and several feet of snow took over my winter! In any case, our most recent visit was every bit as marvelous as the first. My husband and I recently took my parents to Tanglewood, and we wanted to eat someplace special afterward. Based... More

Went to Prime tonight based off Trip Advisor suggestions. Was pleased with not only the service (Josh was great) but the food was fantastic. To have home made pasta at such a small restaurant was such a pleasant surprise. Tony was very hospitable and willing to make our visit as pleasant as possible which wasn't hard to do. Would definately... More

My experience at Prime Italian Steakhouse was exceptional. Having heard such great things about the berkshires, my wife, best friend, and his wife, decided to take a road trip escaping the chaos of New York to the quaint town of Lenox. After a full day of exploring the town we were all desperate for a fulfilling meal. Prime came highly... More

My husband and I stumbled on Prime on our first night in Lenox. The host and waiter were both very attentive and friendly, and our meals were wonderful. Everything tasted fresh and was perfectly seasoned. A great way to start a weekend in the Berkshires.

We were a party of 5 that included a tired 7 year old. They kindly sat us in a large booth. Our little guy was able to stretch out and not cause any issues. They were very nice about making him a special dish of pasta with sauce the way he wanted it. And they made us feel very welcomed... More

First Wow - It's a steak place but they only have 2 choices of meat and I couldn't justify paying Morton's prices. My wife and I both ordered Italian sea food dishes for main course. We had the Shrimp Fradiovlo and the special scallop dish of the night. Pasta and both sauces were great!!! Shrimp and scallops a bit dry... More

I have no idea how this restaurant got such good ratings. I'm surprised because I rarely find TripAdvisor to be wrong. Our experience: - The host was standing outside when we walked up to the restaurant. When he saw us approaching, he went inside just in front of us. And didn't hold the door. It pretty much closed in my... More

This restaurant is only open Wednesday-Saturday. Presumably there isn't enough business to keep it open the other days of the week. One reason for that might be the prices. The atmosphere is reasonable for a number of different possibilities, romantic dinner for two, group dinner, just friends, etc... The food was very good Italian food. I would say it was... More
