    I went to this restaurant with my wife for our 1 year anniversary. I was referred by a good friend of ours. The service was incredible and the food was out of this world. Hands down the best steak I have ever had in my life. I actually overheard other customers saying the same thing over dinner. Would definitely return in the near future.

    The hostess was very pleasant upon my arrival and when I told her I was actually a party of 1 rather than 2 (always book a table for two in order to get a larger one when travelling alone), was guided what I like to call a "punish" table---usually one of two tables for two stuck in some awkard place in the restaurant like next to a water station or something like that. I was not bothered and I didn't ask for a larger table even though it was a 6:00 pm reservation and the entire restaurant was empty. My waiter arrived promptly and appeared to be interested in helping me. I ordered the Beef Carpaccio, the 8% Filet, and a side order (split into two different selections) of white cheddar mashed potatoes and roasted mushrooms. I also had two cocktails and ordered a bottle of Jordan Cabernet 2010 (unopened) to take back up to my room for later. The food came out.....the waiter disappeared. Frank (the waiter) had glued himself to other tables for the next 20 minutes and never bothered to check to see if one---the steak was properly cooked, and two---if there was a need for another cocktail. I paid my bill and left--even tipped on the wine, which many do not and would not have done considering the experience. I was staying at the hotel for another 4 days and had another reservation and decided to give it another chance and glad I did. I just finished my second dinner there this evening. THIS time, my waiter was Diego. This gentlemen was wonderful and told me of appetizers that were not even on the menu, which Frank did not tell me about. In the end, Frank would have cost the restaurant a ONE of the rating and Diego a 5.....to balance it out, I gave a 3.....the restaurant should be aware of the inconsistency in service, especially to lone female diners that are well travelled and have the potential to tip well but are dismissed. Will I be back?.....not my neck of the woods for travelling, but if I come back to Hollywood FL and Diego is working, I'd have to say yes.

    The ambiance is great - very posh and cozy. Both my husband and I had the dry aged rib eye, and it was totally acceptable, if not a little too charred on the outside for my taste (the temperature inside was fine). A little pricier than the usual national chain steakhouse, but not sure what the extra money was for. I don't think I would drive from Boca to dine here again. Plenty of good steak close to home. Good for a special/romantic occasion.

    we celebrated our father's 86th Bday at Diplomat Prime. The service was impeccable and my father said after that "he had never enjoyed a dinner as much". Amazing for an 86 year old. Im sure some of that was the company but in truth, the steak was literally perfect as was the wonderful service and comfortable atmosphere.

    I went to the Diplomat two days in a row. Food was consistent and delicious. Service was fantastic. Their selection of high grade meats is as you would expect of such s high priced restaurant. I will say that the hosts service on both nights was slow and they seemed indifferent to everything.

    After being to Bourbon Steak House and Steak 954, we are spoiled, and just thought the food here was ok to decent. To be honest, overpriced for what you got. The location and the Ambiance is the best we have been too. The service was good but not outstanding, I had to pour my wine because our waiter just did not check up on us as much. (But we still like him) For two people the cost was $240 (the includes 20% tip and taxes) in the end we have better ways to spend our $$. ( Not sure what all the fuss is about on Yelp about this place)

    The place was small but a very well design, you could hear everyone at your table but not the table next to you which was nice. The service was great, pricing was standard for an upscale steakhouse but the steaks were not that great. I would go back if I were staying at the Westin Diplomat again but would not go out of my way to go.

    We were last at the resort nine years ago after getting married. We stayed the night before leaving for or Honeymoon the next day. We didn't get a chance to dine in the resort that night as we went out to meet some friends and family. What a mistake. Dining at Hollywood Prime was everything the website said it would be. It far exceeded our expectations. Our server Robert was great, explaining all of the food choices for us and attending to my wife and I like royalty. The food ......excellent. The Wife had The Surf and Turf, I had the 32 oz. Prime rib and it was awsome. Loved everything about our visit. Robert also furnished a great dessert tray for us served on a platter the read Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. Nice touch!!!!!!!

Their selection of fine foods matched with outstanding white glove service makes this dining experience a prime example of what a fine dining should be.

    I was extremely impressed. The food was good, but the service was absolutely outstanding. Even though we'd checked into the hotel under my new husband's name and my maiden name on the restaurant reservation, they knew that we were newlyweds and gave us an absolutely royal treatment. All of the food was outstanding, and obviously of high quality. It is pricey, especially if you're into wine. We don't spend money like that except on special occasions but for our wedding night going there was one of the best decisions we made.

    We were visiting Ft Lauderdale/Hollywood from SC for our anniversary and chose Hollywood Prime for our special dinner. They made it that plus much more. The dinner was fabulous, the service was impeccable, the ambience very romantic, the wine delicious, the entire evening SPECIAL. They topped it off by bringing a dessert sampler plate to us decorated with "Happy Anniversary" as a surprise. It was an exceptional evening!

    Looked at the menu and decided to make a reservation at Hollywood Prime. Waitstaff was incredible and attentive. The food divine. Started with an incredible Cosmopolitan and an amuse-bouche of lamb loin on onion jelly - scrumptious. My appetizer was escargot topped with puff pastry that was delicious, all garlicky and sweet! I chose the bone-in aged filet (9oz) cooked medium rare, and was ecstatic about it. Tender and perfectly cooked, the meat had a wonderful flavor. It was served with a homemade steak sauce - YUM! Sides are ala carte and I ordered asparagus/hollandaise (double YUM) and truffle frites (delicious!). DESSERT? OMG chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream - heavenly, but the portion was HUGE, so I couldn't finish.

    Last Saturday night, for a special occasion we went to Hollywood Prime. We had been there once a few years ago. At that time, they allowed wine to be brought in from the outside, not any more. This disappointed me, as I have an extensive cellar. We ordered a bottle from their wine list, which was pretty much all recent vintages, no older wines. And somewhat pricey. I had recently purchased a bottle on their wine list for $42, they were charging $128 for the identical red wine. The food was quite good and the service excellent. No view however, no windows either. Several menu items were marked "Market Price". That's OK for lobster, etc., but for lamb chops? When I saw the bill I knew why. The lamb chops were $72 for a single serving!

    My wife and I went to Hollywood Prime for our anniversary dinner. The staff was very gracious and helpful with the menu and the wine list. Although they didn't have the best steaks we have ever had but they were very well prepared and great cuts of meat, the seasoning was not our favorite. The sides were spectacular we had the White cheddar mashed potatoes, and mushrooms? We enjoyed our time there, the great service and atmosphere of the resturant. Be prepared to pay a little extra for your dinner on this evening but you shouldn't be disappointed. The desserts were great and the wine was perfect, also be sure to make a reservation since they do not always have open seats.

    Pros--well seasoned steak, attentive service that wasn't intrusive, delicious mashed potatoes Cons--steak ordered medium rare was medium plus, steak was dry, expensive, room is boring For a $40 10 oz steak, the kitchen should darn well cook it to requested temperature. No way in my book that a steakhouse can do better than "Good" when a steak is overcooked. Undercooked can be fixed, overcooked can't.
