“By far the best restaurant in Orlando.”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

I was blown away! The food (and service) is top notch. Every bite was incredible, every aspect of our meal was perfect. Make sure to get your valet parking validated so you don't pay the $25 fee.
I recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants to have an experience incomparable to other dining experiences.

“Ate there twice”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Staff were great. Apps and mains were very good. Pasta's were not as strong, but still good. Desserts were very good as well. Wine list was to the point. Small by the glass selection, but covered enough territory to find something that worked.

“Romantic meal”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

This was the last night of our 2 week trip to Florida - expensive, but superb food, wine & atmosphere. Very attentive service. We had one of the 3 bay seats further into the restaurant which felt very private.
Fantastic meal, very memorable.

“Primo at the JW Marriott for an early Valentine's Day Dinner”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

My husband and I finally got to dine at Primo in Orlando at the JW Marriott. I had read several reviews over the years and had always wanted to eat dinner there. OMG!! Loved it, not stuffy, felt like I was eating in someone's beautiful villa!! Our waitress and her wait staff were very professional and congenial. It was chilly that night, I felt like we were near a hearth of an old kitchen, with the way we could see the chefs working. Our cocktails were spot on. For appetizers, I ordered clams and mussels with a delicious tomato sauce. It was served with 2 crostini's that had 2 different amazing tomato pates. My husband had steak tartare and it was delicious. I also had a small but delicious spring mix, frisee and endive salad accompanied by a simple wine vinagrette (as good as mine!) He ordered a parpadelle with scallops and I had a potato wrapped and sauteed Fl tile fish over a leek and ham sauce. Wonderful!!!!! This meal was work every dime. We will return in the future. Thanks Melissa Kelly for bringing such fine local food to Orlando.
