    Our visit was overall good. I made my reservation online and asked for a price of cake brought out after dinner for my boyfriends birthday which they did. The food was phenomenal however the prices are high and many menu items do not include any vegetables or starches (I ordered the filet minion and was surprised that it literally came on a bare plate). The service was great however our dinner for 4 took 2 hours and the restaurant was a bit noisy for a Sunday evening. Our chairs had awkwardly high backs as well however not all chairs had the high backs. I would definitely recommend this restaurant with those precautions.

    Lovely popovers that I look forward to having with filets or seafood. The Caesar salad is for real, with real olive oil, cheese, anchovies. It is terrific. Lobster night is a great treat. And then, oh my gosh, there is the bacon which is delicious beyond belief. The bacon hangs on a mini clothesline and it's a wow. Wine and martinis are overpriced -- disappointingly overpriced.

    Music was really good but an odd choice for an upscale steakhouse with a varied age group as clientele. We asked the waitress, who lacked personality, who selected the music and she said David Burke himself. He likes rock music.

    We went to this restaurant for their Lobster Night (Monday's) and the food was delicious! We were celebrating my birthday! I ordered the lobster tacos, roasted whole lobster (which was on the very small size - very little meat) and the crème brulee. My husband ordered the lobster bisque, lobster carbonara and the apple tart. Everything tasted terrific, only negative was that my husbands pasta dish had more lobster than my whole lobster; which was disappointing.

    Four of us dined, three had sirloins. One of the sirloins was overcooked. It was sent back, a new one cooked , however it came back raw in the center. Had asked for it to be medium. The second steak was sent back a second time. When it finally arrived, the other 3 people were finished with their meals and the sides were cold. Not what is expected at a David Burk Prime! Very disappointing experience.

    I have been wanting to try this restaurant for some time now and finally had the opportunity! This place did not disappoint AT ALL! The service was quite remarkable, everyone helps each other to please the guests constantly! The table side Caesar salad was AWESOME and the entree was remarkably delicious! I had the chef special which was a surf n turf entree, the steak was done to a perfect Med-Rare! I highly recommend the restaurant for that special evening out, it was a great dining experience...be prepared that the menu is organized a la carte style so your meal adds up quickly! We were prepared to splurge but if you go in not knowing this it could be quite a surprise. Look at the menu online before going!

    Ive been twice and both times excellent. I recommend the wedge salad for starters with the bacon strips on top. That is a meal in itself ( extra thick cut bacon amazing ) . Also the seafood tower is fabulous and should be shared by four.

    Love steakhouses- frequent often, this was first time to a David Burke- expected more. Service lacking from the start- should have been an indication- waited 15 minutes for anyone to approach table. This is not typical of steakhouse and not acceptable at any restaurant. We ordered drinks which took another 10 min. When drinks arrived, ordered apps and entree. We usually wait on entree but the way things were going we thought it best to order all at once. We were there for 2 hrs and we didn't have dessert. The wedge salad was very good. Filet mignon undercooked and after sent back completely dried out- not edible. 55 day aged steak not worth the expense the steak was not even a steakhouse steak. Overall -not a good experience

    Reservations for 6:45, didn't get seated until 7:15. Highlight...my ice cold Martini. Table-side Caesar...wonderful. Dinner, my husband had the chicken. It was dry..but it is a steak house :) I had the petite filet WOW, melt in your mouth. Fabulous. We shared 3 sides at $25, rather steep, but who can just eat a piece of meat for dinner. All very good. Also had a glass of Caymus Cab ($37)..but well worth it, paired really well with my filet. We were going to see a show but since we were seated late, we didn't have time for dessert. Very disappointed. But when they bring you your check they serve up a helping of cotton candy. Very unique....enjoyed it. A very memorable dinner for a special occasion.

    This experience was absolutely perfect. We had Brian/Aaron they were spot on with everything. Brians knowledge is incredible and it shows. The food was to die for from the crabcake and house special "iceberger", to the amazing breakfast for dinner surf and turf, all the way to our amazing desserts. Julian was spot on as well. I just handed him the list and told him a price. He couldnt have picked a more perfect wine. I had diners with me who dont even drink wine and it was to their liking as well. Overall amazing experience.

    We both order the Kung Pao lobster from the lobster night $39 menu, the sauce was delicious, my only negative comment is that the body of the lobster was kind of a waste to be on the plate and took away from the other pieces of lobster. Popovers, chocolate dessert and crab cake appetizer was outstanding! I would highly recommend this place

    We came to Foxwoods specifically for David Burke Prime restaurant. My birthday happened to be on a Monday, so I was happy to take advantage of the 3-course lobster dinner with lobster dumplings, kung pao lobster and the cheesecake lollipop tree! My husband got a T-bone steak which was a special, and we shared several sides. Including drinks, the bill was a little over $200, so it's not cheap. However, every time I've been here the food has been amazingly delicious, the service terrific, and it's perfect once in a while for a special occasion splurge! Each experience has been memorable and well worth it. :-)

    Second time here. Server "couldn't read own handwriting" and brought me a crabcake instead of the crab cocktail appetizer I ordered. The crab cocktail and the seviche appetizer were tasty. My lamb entree, ordered medium rare, arrived hammered-uniformly grey. It was re-fired and re-served rare-seriously rare. My husband's bone-in filet was also under the requested medium rare, but he was able to eat it, except for the part close to the bone. I was offered another entree, but by then my husband was done eating, and I was just "done". Manager apologized and removed the lamb from the bill, but it seemed like it was a common occurrence and she wasn't all that fazed. I was disappointed-and when the cotton candy sugar high wore off-hungry.

    I was happy to secure a 6:15 reservation so we had time to eat, and gamble a bit before the show. I was in a steak mood and really enjoy Michael Jordan's at Mohegan. So, I figured this would be on the same level. Unfortunately, I was wrong. It started by a 10 minute wait for the host to get back so that we could be seated. Then the double waiter explanation. The theory is good, execution was poor. We now had the same questions being asked twice and did end up with a wrong appetizer. I ordered the 60-day aged serloin (hey, it was my birthday) and three sides. My fiancé had the scalps. My steak was cooked ok, but was a little lacking in the flavor department. We tried all three sides, but did not care for any of them. Drinks were very good!

    Not the place to eat on a Saturday night. A month ago we ate at Burke on a Sunday night and the food was prepared perfect. This time my piece of Filet Migon was undercooked and tough. Even though they reheated it the meat had a bad taste because all the juices were gone once you cut into it. Thus they should have given me a new piece since I had only eaten a small part. At $42 for only an ounce piece I expect top line service and food. On the Sunday when I had good food it was not as crowded. This should not be an excuse for a high end restaurant or any restaurant.

I also appreciated the attentiveness to my food allergies (gluten and corn). The staff were on top of everything. We had impeccably cooked steaks and the side dishes were just unbelievable.

    This was my second visit to DB Prime. While it would be difficult to repeat the first experience due to the minimal availability of Kobe beef, which is cooked to perfection on a heated salt block at your table, this visit was another example of food and service excellence. I continue to have dreams about the maple glazed bacon and the desserts are a delight as well.

    This restaurant is a definite 5 star rating! The servers were very friendly, professional and attentive and knowledgeable. The lobster was succulent and cooked to perfection! I LOVED the idea of a popover as a bread substitute, that alone is an awesome idea! The crème brulee was so rich and creamy but not overly sweet. I wished I lived closer as I would dine there often! When we come back next year we will definitely get the steak and dine there twice during our week's stay.

    David Burke Prime does the best of classic American steakhouses... with a twist! From hanging clotheslines of bacon, to "crab croutons" on my table-side caesar salad, to HUGE dry-aged steaks. Brian is an extremely professional server (and Josh a perfect compliment), there whenever our table needed anything before we had to ask. His wine recommendations were spot-on. What amazed me the most was their ability to deliver quality food - quickly. I, as one who is tired of drawn-out dining experiences, hugely appreciate the ability to have an amazing meal in under an hour (all in the interest of a quick return to the blackjack table!). Thank you, Prime, for being delicious and unpretentious and unparallelled in the Foxwoods Casino meal scene.

    But this visit wasn't 100% up to the usual standard. I usually visit around 3 times a year and always order the same things. High quality is always delivered so my expectations also stay high. This time around the potatoes seemed a bit gritty (overcooked maybe?). A very small glitch in what is always a wonderful meal. I love the overall fun decor and atmosphere. Hoping it was a glitch and next time will be back to normal.
