“Excellent food. Ridiculous portions. Poor Service. Expensive.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

The food is superb and the atmospher is very chic. The portion sizes are insane so make sure you share. The service was poor the night we dined there. I'd go back, but wasn't happy with the service at all.

“Bleh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

This has a great view of Prime 112 across the street, so the people and car watching is great, but is not worth the time or money with all of the other options in the area. The food is fine but completely unremarkable and the prices are ridiculous. Our server was condescending and then inattentive once orders were taken. I am sure the included 18% gratuity had something to do with this, but perhaps we were simply unlucky in our particular staff person. We had a large party, ordered cocktails, wine, various appetizers, a few vegetarian meals, a few "brick oven" pizzas and some of the steaks. Despite the name, there are few pastas, none of which were recommended by our server, although perhaps that was a result of their lower price point. If cost is no object, then this was an acceptable but middling experience. If you would like a high quality experience with your high end restaurant and price tag, keep looking.

Pasta was great. The atmosphere was nice, so a nice dinner. The waiter was very informative on what was on the menu and had great suggestions.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Service was very very good... I do have to say it is pricey! but the good thing is you actuallt get a ton of food for what you are paying!!!! I like that....
The place is very pretty and it has a scenic view, with outdoor seating on Miami Beach....

Lobster bisque.... delish!!!!! and best thing of all, I have to say was the bread they give you to start the meal.... aaahhhh OUTSTANDING!!!

“Great Food. Better Service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

I am always at odds when writing reviews on Prime Italian (or Prime 112). This place, while having what I believe to be the best food on South Beach, tends to have horrible service. I believe I was at an advantage this visit having beat the evening rush. The hostesses were pleasant, the bartender as well as the waiter too. I have had the same waiter the past couple visits and he is always hospitable. I keep going back because the food is just that great. I hope the customer service remains pleasant.
