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

Excellent restaurant on the Upper West Side of Manhattan (Kosher). Service is excellent. Great for business meetings.

I love prime ko! It is a great restaurant, mostly because it is a kosher one! Since I keep kosher I am not always able to eat at restaurants! But this one is great and kosher!

Kosher and elegant don’t usually go together but at Prime KO it is true. While quite pricey, everything was so deliciously prepared and so elegantly plated that it was worth the price paid. Try the Kobe beef sliders, the best hamburger ever. The veal chops were cooked perfectly. Steamed vegetables were served in a pot and were enough for two.... More

PrimeKo is an Asian Fusion Restaurant in the heart of the upper Westside. In my opinion there Corn Fed Illinois steak is the best in NYC. However, PrimeKO can work on improving a few things. For example, At Solo and PG the side that one can order is proportionally larger. Additionally, every time i go the diet coke is flat... More
