While the atmosphere is very nice (and the view from our table looking out onto Main Street was lovely), the food was only mediocre at best, considering the prices of the meals. Only one person out of our party of four ordered filet mignon, which was truly outstanding. The others all ordered a variety of seafood dishes, which ranged from... More

Decided to try Prime 289 for our second honeymoon dinner while on vacation and we were not disappointed! The dining room is upscale and not just for Oneonta. Wait staff was knowledgeable, attentive but not too attentive. The food was outstanding and worthy of the best steak houses in the Washington, DC area. We had the Caesar salad, creamed spinach...

While the view from the outside is quite appealing, it really doesn't even compare to the atmosphere inside. You are quickly transferred to a very pleasant, almost private dining experience once you are seated-and I was seated very quickly. I had the porterhouse black angus and it was terrific, one of the best steaks I have ever had. The coffee... More

We often passed by and thought about going someday. Well, we went tonight and are glad we did. It wasn't perfect but overall, a very good meal and wonderful ambience. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Kudos to the management for training your waitstaff well. Now to the food and drink. We ordered a medium priced botle of wine,... More

Visited my son at college. He loves to eat well when I am around and I don't mind at all. Went to Prime 289 tonight, a Saturday night and was immediately treated warmly by the hostess/owner. We ordered 2appetizers to share- little neck clams in a garlic wine broth and not only were the clams a nice size, the broth... More

Our waitress was friendly courteous and met all of our dining needs. The food was prepared and presented well. The restaurant is very clean and classy. It is decorated well with relaxing music. I would go here again. If I were to recommend a steak I would not get a sirloin it seemed grizzly . The scallops with the meal... More

This was our first visit. Loved the ambience--elegant casual, old music that was the perfect background, low noise level. Food was amazing! We had filet mignon with mushroom medley and steak fries. Well worth the money!

Everything was wonderful. From the atmosphere, to the food and the wine. Our waitress had a great personality and was very tentative. The filet was outstanding and cooked exactly the way I had wanted. Great job prime 289 you guys exceeded 5 star customer service!
