We've been coming to Prime KO for years, whenever we're in NY. Though it's a steakhouse, we've never actually ordered steak. The appetizers are numerous, varied and creative. We typically make a meal out of just the appetizers. It's fun to sample multiple different dishes and they are all terrific. We have had the Kobe beef sliders and they are,... More

Awesome desserts like chocolate cream pie and great hotdogs and a side of string beans impressed me. Twice ordered a burger medium rare and it came well done. Maybe the waiter was hard of hearing. The spicy fries were awesome.

The restaurant is mix of steakhouse and Japanese mexicaned food. The sashimi tacos lack flavor and the meats are over-cooked. The service is quite slow.

I went to the new downstairs burger section of Prime KO for a kosher burger. Unfortunately, the burger was only average but the prices are quite high. A plain burger and fries cost over $20. There were 4 of us and a baby eating dinner and the cost was almost $200 for 4 burgers, 3 beers and 3 side dishes.... More

We came for dinner on a quiet Sunday night. Not a single staff member seemed to be friendly or too pleasant; our waiter appeared condescending and aloof. He made no suggestions as to the menu choices nor seemed too pleased to have is as customers. Actually, we were never made to feel too welcomed there. The food was excellent, though... More

The food was good, but the restaurant was dark, the tables were small and the service rushed. Also it was very noisy. I was unable to enjoy my conversation.

All the sushi is good. The are a variety of crispy rice dishes (e.g. spicy tuna, kobe beef..) that are by far the best things on the menu. The food is definitely pricey. One way to cut back on cost, have variety, and still walk away full is to order two appetizers. This is lots of fun with larger groups
