Took my daughter who is a student at SUNY Oneonta here. Great choice. Nice ambience inside, and the food was great! The calamari appetizer was so tender. And my salmon melted in my mouth. The mashed potatoes and vegetable medley were also excellent. Highly recommend.

Décor is nice with the leather seating and brick walls. Food was good....had a very tasty buffalo chicken and spinach soup. Had a Porterhouse....was good but I grill better steaks all the time and it was ordered Med Rare and came out way rare. Was a little tougher than should have been as well. No liquor license so to not... More

Just Ok place. It has some rave reviews. But I am more the chef Ramsey type. Took the family, they are not family friendly. Ordered the Porterhouse, medium. came out mooing. Not a great cut of meat, just OK. Wife ordered the pork, it was tough. The mac and cheese was funky cheese style. Risotto was good, asparagus was OK,... More

If you plan on lodging in Oneonta, NY while visiting The Baseball Hall of Hame, Prime 289 is a "hands on" absolute must. It definitely has the most enchanting atmosphere in Oneonta, NY. Had the most mouthwatering clams as a starter, and devoured perhaps the most succulent filet mignon that I ever had in my entire life, that was as... More

We waited 3 days for this restaurant to open as it's closed Sun-Tues but worth wait. They have a great happy hour with good $3.00 wines and buy one get 2nd appetizer half off. We sat down to dinner afterwards and had the Delmonico Steak, wedge salad and french onion soup-all delicious. Wish Prime 289 had been open more than... More

I acknowledge the fact of how difficult it must be to run a fine restaurant in a small town. Where completion abounds at every turn, this little gem of a restaurant has defied logic and has survived and prospered! I tend to think over-all the prices in Oneonta restaurants are high to begin with, but for a few dollars more... More

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...
