“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Visited with Family & Friends to celebrate a special occasion . The steaks could not have been better, excellently prepared, with the presentation being impeccable for both the main & starters.
In all the food was of a very high standard including the side orders.
I found the wine list a little limited and also somewhat a bit more expensive in comparison with similar venues of this type in Doha
The only real disappointments were the that the restaurant had very little character or appeal and the service was somewhat disappointing, As it was not up to the same standard of the food. There was too few waiting staff in the restaurant the night we visited, this may be due to a busy night in the adjoining “sports” lounge, as there was a WC Football match ongoing.

In all the food was great and the evening was enjoyable
I would certainly return to enjoy the food again, this time hopefully with an improvement in in the service up front in the restaurant

Dear OilandGas_13,
thank you for your good review of the Prime Steakhouse. We are pleased that you overall enjoyed your dining experience with us. Concerning the service this is untypical for this Restaurant and we have addressed this with the Restaurant Manager in order to avoid this issue in the future. We do hope to see you back soon for some more perfectly cooked steaks.

“Best special dinner place in town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

If the chef is the Yoda of meat cooking the host Ally is the OB1 of hosts.

Celebrated my wife's birthday here and the service and food were excellent. Bouquet, rose petals on the table, drinks top up and ofcourse the steaks!

The time out awards are well deserved!

“Delicious Steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

The service was awesome and The French chef has served us his magnificent onion soup which I will not forget. The only description I can give to the steak is that it was so juicy and I will leave the rest to your imagination :-)

“Fantastic food, awesome service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

A big thank you to Chris, the General Manager at Intercontinental City, and his team for making last night's event at Prime a gastronomic delight. The chef prepared an exquisite French onion soup, the beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection (the best I've had in Doha) and the lemon cheesecake concluded a fantastic dining experience. A very nice Merlot complimented the various courses including an amuse-bouche and a palate cleanser.

This is the second time I've dined at this understated hotel and I'm very impressed with the quality and service...where else do you get to choose a steak knife based on your choice of steak? I highly recommend the restaurants there and I'm looking forward to trying their latest offering, Hwang, which is a Pan Asian restaurant that is sure to deliver based on my experiences to date!

“GREAT FOOD & GREAT SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

It was a Wednesday evening and the husband fancied Steak - walking distance is the intercom and we heard they have a steakhouse - Prime.
From the moment we sat down to the moment we left we had a fantastic time.
Amil the waiter went above and beyond the call of duty and had a fantastic sense of humor just what every restaurant needs!!
The food from the complimentary amsubush to the light fluffy desert which hit the sport - thank you!
So if its yummy food, great atmosphere and great service - would highly recommend it - and a special thanks to Amil :-)
