Just FANTASTIC!

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!

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

The meal and ambiance was just as I had hoped. No issues here. Very Good food and service. Parking can be difficult at times but it's a solid place to eat.

The owners bought a building a few blocks from the old location. The new place is larger than the old and different. The bar area is much larger and nicer. The new place sits on a corner and they have a "garage door" on each side so they can open them and create a unique indoor outdoor look and feel.... More

This may sound strange, but the new location of Primo Grill (on 6th) is beautiful AND hip. It's obvious they went to great lengths to keep the historical feel of the building, but at the same time by using great colors and modern decor they have made it into a space you just want to hang out in. We sat... More

Very attentive, funny, professional with a great smile.The food was wonderful. I had the grilled pork chop with cherry chutney. The meat was tender... More

Never expected to enjoy the margaritas (rocks no salt for us) so much! My husband chose this restaurant based on a coupon he found online. I am so glad he did! We both had lamb shanks...very tasty, with the baked garlic mash and carrots in a delicious mint sauce. We decided to skip dessert and go for a second round... More
