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

The setting for Island Prime couldn't be more spectacular! The restaurant is on pillars on the edge of the bay! We were privileged to view a sailboat regatta from our window table. It's such a special place. We celebrated my husband's birthday there. We ordered an appetizer using crusted brie. Very tasty. My husband ordered the largest cut of prime... More

Great views, food was good, but a little pricey, but I guess you are paying for the views. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Will return to sit on the patio

You can walk from the Sheraton to this restaurant. The blackened Salmon salad was so memorable. This sits on the water where you can watch the sail boats and big ships come in and out of the harbor. It seems that we always have a wait because it is so popular.
