Pleasantly Surprised, But Then Disappointed

As we were visiting our daughter for Christmas, she chose Prime for our Christmas dinner. We had reservations and were seated promptly - right next to the singer and keyboard spot. Needless to say, we were quite apprehensive about how loud the sound might be, but it was perfectly fine. The singer... read more

Considering that we had reservations for Christmas Eve, I wasn't sure that the service would be as excellent as I had read about since it was a full house. It was indeed excellent including a thoroughly knowledgable waiter/server and timely service on this very busy night. The food was of high quality and with a bottle of wine and a... More

An upscale neighborhood restaurant that we visit regularly. Our out of town guests are still raving about the dinner we had at Prime months ago. Our latest visit was on Pasta-with-Frank night. The singer adds a nice touch to the pleasant dining room, but I recommend the Best of Prime four course deal rather than their pasta. Their black mussels... More

Food was adequate but the manager was a rude horrid women and selective on who's she was attending to and gossiping of other patrons. Except for the very good... More

Greeted by the owner; a stunningly beautiful woman, I was accommodated like a VIP. I was dining alone,which in a steakhouse is frequently frowned upon(AKA ..... BLT STEAK in my home state of NY) She sat me in a booth & from then on..... I was treated to almost perfect service. The tuna tartare was outstanding, as were the crab... More

I Have Eaten At Prime Many Times And Each Time Was As Good As The Time Befoe. We Have Eaten At Some Of The Other So Called Prime Rib Eateries But Have Come Away At Times Disappointed. I Have Never Been Disappointed At Prime. Everything From The Appitizers To The Desserts Are Top Notch. The Bloody Marys Are A Wow... More

We had a coupon for the four course meal. What a deal. We all ordered different sides and each one was absolutely amazing. The service was top notch. And can I tell you I've never had Mac n cheese like that in my life. So tasty with the smoked cheese. The only thing that sucked was the bartender who gave... More

My guest was a frequent diner and hosted several work function lunches and suggested we try it for dinner. Arrived early (around 5:00 pm) and I ordered the pre-fixe meal for that evening. My friend recognized the owner from previous visits. This particular visit, the owner passed our table no less than 5 times without so much as even an... More

Just received a gift card to prime and made quick use of it. Had also been given that best of prime coupon that seems to be in the all the trades. The three of us started out with apps of mussels, tuna tartar and stuffed chile ( all very good). We then all got the baby green salad. My two... More
