I was traveling cross country and had eaten in Italian restaurants 5 nights in a row. I love Italian food but just wanted fish and a glass of white wine. The owner chatted with me while I looked at the menu in the window and I told him what I was after. The crusted tuna over risotto with a cherry... More

This is a long-time Lenox restaurant. Following a needed updateseveral years ago, it reopened as a star. It is now needlessly expensive, especially the drinks. Service is good with the potential to eat outside on nice evenings, which is a definite plus! Parking is limited to what you can find on-street.

The interior is slightly New York glitzy, but the outdoor patio is a treat. Good Italian food, great service

We stumbled upon Prime and went in to eat. It was our first time and we all loved our meals!! Next time we come to Lenox, I'm trying the steak. The owners were great too. Extremely friendly and welcoming. I'm getting hungry just typing this review. Thanks Gennaro, mom and the great staff.

Let me start out by saying that I despise bland food. The spicy sausage dish with peppers and pappardella was perhaps the best such dish I've ever had the pleasure of eating. Flavorful and delicate. Service was superb and the portions were extremely generous. Really hard to find anything to criticize here. A+ all the way. Bravo. Wife and I... More

I have been spending vacation time in The Berkshires for over twenty years. There are numerous good restaurants in The Berkshires. However Prime is one of my favorites. I make sure I come here a few times during the summer. The food and service is excellent. The presentation of the food is appropriate for a magazine. Four different dishes were... More

So we reserved the party room for 8 people. Tables enclosed in a glass room but instead of a large table for eight the room was spit into two tables of 4 each on an opposite side from the other. Kind of weird. Would have been better off in the main restaurant with two tables put together. Found it odd... More
