My husband and I ate here on a recent weekend. We ate early and had reservations so were seated immediately. By the time we left there was quite a lengthy crowd waiting.
My husband had blackened swordfish w/ arugula & papaya salsa and I had soy marinated Chilean sea bass w/ steamed baby bok choy & sweet miso sauce. We ordered a side of white truffle fries. Both entrees were excellent especially the swordfish. The fries were probably the best we ever had but were enough for a small army. All the sides were certainly enough for four or five people. The dessert we chose--Warm Dulce de Leche Bread Pudding w/ Candied Walnuts & Vanilla Ice Cream--was delicious but again enough for four people.
I have a hard time understanding why some restaurants make it so hard to order a reasonable portion. Most of the time we find that huge quantities equal poor quality. This isn't the case here but the size of some of the items we saw going to other tables approached sinful. Someone needs to remind the management that "there are starving people in (fill in the blank)" like my mother always reminded me! I am sure that a lot of food goes back uneaten even though it is excellent. It really bothers me when restaurants do this. We have encountered it only in America. Perhaps if they reduced the size of the servings they could cut their prices proportionately.
Our server (Erica) was delightful and gave us a "heads up" on the sizes of the items, warning us against ordered a salad in addition to the other items. That would have been a tremendous error as we could not finish any of the courses. She was extremely helpful in her recommendations about menu items.
We found Prime One Twelve to be a place we would only visit on a special occasion since the bill for the two of us was $176 including three glasses of wine, tax and gratuity. If you can afford it, go for it!
