Island Prime is that great place for a special occasion. We had a wonderful dinner with a great view of the city and the bay. The menu is on the pricey side but for the good service, food, and views it is worth it. The steaks are excellently executed and the fresh seafood is well seasoned and plated beautifully.

The restaurant boasts a great view and all of the food was delicious but my personal favorite was the Brussels sprouts! They were beyond amazing. Staff was attentive and it was an overall great experience. Not sure what other reviewers are talking about (bland food) because all was well.

I have eaten at Island Prime a number of times. The food is always excellent. The ahi with black rice and pineapple is an unusual and spectacular dish. Highly recommended.

Excellent food - had wonderful appetizers as well as ceviche and it was outstanding. Good drinks plus good service. Best of all it is not crazy expensive and the view can't be beat.

All food was bland, no flavor from appetizers to entrees. Didn't order dessert, not worth spending anymore money. Noisy atmosphere, could not here our party. Use some kind of seasoning, please
