Went here just Fri evening and sat by the grill. I had a pasta dish that had asparagus in it. The bottoms of the asparagus were tough and hard. The pasta sauce had a very nice flavor, but by the time I got it, it was lukewarm. The person I went to dinner with was served her meal over 5... More

We love farm-to-table and sustainable food establishments. The ambiance is made perfect with the garage doors and the open layout. The food menu was just ok. We didn't find anything we just had to try. The Moroccan martini was awesome- lemon mint mojioto type drink. The beer selection was dismal. I would love to see farm to table beers, like... More

The best part about the Primo Grill is the art work! The woman who served us drinks at the bar all but snarled when I enquired about happy hour drinks. She flung a menu across the bar at us, convincing me not to even consider eating there. I'd been taken to the restaurant by the artist responsible for the art... More

Recently returned to Primo Grill for the first time since their move. Was not disappointed. The new space is bright and comfortable, the service was as good as ever, the cocktails were tasty, and, while the menu seemed smaller, the food was excellent. Both my friend and I had the smoked salmon pasta with asparagus and lemon cream sauce -... More

My evening at Primo Grill actually began with me heading to a different restaurant; however, en route, I came across Primo and figured I'd give the place a shot. OMG! I'm SOOO VERY glad that I did! I stumbled across one of THE BEST dining experiences I have EVER had! So, here's how it went down: 1. Appetizer - Steamed... More

Since they have moved from their old location they have improved their menu as well as the ambience. If you go don't miss their lamb chops! Amazing, amazing, amazing. Charlie McMahon's outdone himself.

We went to the new Primo for a Happy Hour type nosh. It was not their finest showing (I hope). If I wanted a burned piece of flatbread with some wilted green stuff on it, I would have gotten one of those horrid frozen "pizzas" from Trader Joe's and broiled it to death myself. This was not the type of... More

In the spirit of the neighborhood, Open spaces with comfy bar and plenty of tables. Homemade cheese with pita, calamari and mussels are appetizers. Brick chicken with aioli and spaghetti bolonese were terrific. Service knows the menu and is attentive without being intrusive.

We'd given up eating at the old Primo ... just felt the quality etc had diminished. We've now had 4 meals at the new site and think it is a great addition to 6th Avenue. The space has a much more open feeling (it WAS great it the summer to sit at the open "garage doors" ) and is somehow... More
