Love the martinis at this place. They are always top shelf. Really bummed they don't do a raspberry lemon drop, but the regular lemon drop or the dirty martini is really good. The food is also good. Service at the bar can be a little slow if they are really busy. This is one of the best happy hour places... More

We had not planned on a fine dining night but felt compelled to look into Prime Steakhouse and decided to make a reservation and give it a try. Turned out to be an excellent choice. We were able to get a nice table on short notice and ordered up a few of apps for the table, Bacon Wrap Scallops, Shrimp... More

We had steak, garlic mashed and Caesar salad. Steak very tender and delicious! Tuesday is Sinatra night and the musician was amazing. It is very dimly lit, I would love just a little more light. Obviously a locals favorite.

I had made a reservation for 12 people for family driving from OC and was in a car accident. I canceled my reservation an hour before and communicated with the restaurant during our travel that we would not make it because of an accident. The restaurant charged my card anyways. The manager called and was rude and unprofessional and said... More

Took my mother here for her birthday. My husband and I dined here on several occasions and loved it. The food was excellent and the service great. One of our favorite special occasion places to go!

Kat, my wife, and I enjoyed a wine paring supper at Prime last night, with six or seven courses and each of them exquisitely great. And the owner has a GREAT pallet and pick wines from modestly priced to expensive. The supper was fairly priced and served family style so you got to gab with lots of folks who enjoy... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. If you have read my reviews, you know I don't hand out a 'five' easily. The food here is wonderful. We love the bacon-wrapped dates for appetizers as well as the chili rellenos. For entrees, the rack of lamb is wonderful as are all their steaks. The restaurant is abuzz with people eating,... More

We went to Prime to celebrate my birthday. We had reservations for a Sunday night. We were blown away by the service and the quality of their food! We all tasted one another's dinners and agreed each was cooked to perfection! I do not understand the negative reviews at all but perhaps the service might have been slower than they... More

Went for my Birthday Dinner. Was excited about this place. There were 5 of us. I've never been to a restaurant where I was there 3 hours and most of that was just waiting for the food. The drinks came out promptly as did the appetizer and salads. Our main Entrees took so long and they must have been just... More

One nephew, two nieces and I took my wife to Prime for her birthday. We got there at 6:30 and they seated us quickly since we had reservations. I did notice in front of me that they turned away a couple because they were all booked up. I assumed that means it is a great place with all the people... More
