Had a good but not great meal. The food was very well prepared and visually pleasing but the service was only average, the servers did not communicate well with each other or understand what we said. Further, my twosome was placed right next busy table of 6 who were very loud, even though there were plenty of other, quieter tables... More

Here's the good news --- the steaks and veal chops are very good indeed. Also the broccoli drenched in garlic and oil was a terrific "side" dish. This place also gives those on the Upper Westside another welcome kosher alternative. The bad news --- the prices, like at the other Prime Hospitality Group restaurants in Manhattan, are very steep indeed.... More

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

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
