My husband and I were actually headed somewhere else, but decided to stop in here just to check it out. We started with a beer and appetizer. It was clean, bright, had some large open windows, and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The app was their calamari. It was delicious! The only... read more

Sadly, this new Primo Grill is not as classy or distinctive as it was in its former location down the street. It's fun and seems to be catering to more of a bar crowd. The service was friendly and fine; however, the food was just average. The main complaint was the hostess who was dressed so sloppily, she was unrecognizable... More

I was frustrated to find out the pub I told my friends to meet me at is now closed on Sundays. I saw the sign for Primo Grill next door and decided to give it a try. I looked it up on Trip Advisor after we were seated and was pleased with the reviews. The wait staff provides top notch... More

Friendliest staff in Tacoma. Great variety of food from fresh made pasta to fresh caught fish. Signature ribeye was a little too grizzled on this day, but the salmon was great. Wonderful server went over all the gluten free options and kept the water glasses full all night. Two sides of the building had large garage door like windows that... More

It was our first time at the new location and it is a great improvement! The bar and dining area are lovely and they also have a separate room for groups. We had a tough time choosing our entrees, so we peppered our server with many questions. He was knowledgable and took the time to guide us. We were all... More

We went at a time they are not normally open - a Mother's Day lunch. Normal operating hours begin at 4 PM. It was a very good meal, a little noisy but the windows were opened and that seemed to help. It was nice to have the fresh air. Expect to pay in the neighborhood of 25 to 35 dollars... More

Much better than the old Il Primo. More focused simpler but interesting menu. The staff was well informed about the menu and able to answer most questions. It was a quiet evening. Service was attentive and food well prepared and came in a reasonable time. Nice to see them sourcing locally and supporting sustainable food. We will return I hope... More

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
