Diner Reviews
  • "Prime Steakhouse offers a quiet romantic setting less than a block from the Denver Center for the Performing Arts Complex. I dropped my date off at the door, drove and parked at the Denver Center's parking garage and returned in less than 15 minutes. The food was delicious, service superior and timely. We highly recommend this restaurant to any couples looking to escape for a romantic dinner and theater!"

  • "Food, service, wine, ambiance, was all great. There's not a single thing I'd complain about. It was kind of quiet for a Friday."

  • "This place is great!! A local restaurant that has a nice cozy feel and very welcoming. Jon was our server and his prompt, relaxing, yet professional feel was comforting and enjoyable. The Ahi Tuna TarTar appetizer was perfect and amazingly fresh. The Game Platter with Buffalo, Elk, and Venison (all of which is local) was outstanding. Super tender, juicy and downright flavorful. My wife had a Baby Spinach salad and French Onion Soup for dinner which she was delighted with both and claimed it may be the best F.O. soup shes ever had. Grilled Asparagus and Crispy Steak Potatoes were awesome and would definitely recommend them for anyone going to Prime. Like Deion says.... it's "Primetime!""

  • "It was fine but we all decided (four of us) we probably would not go back. Our server was excellent and the food was good but just not quite up to the high prices. My wife did say that the ladies room wasn't all that clean. I was not impressed by the appearance of their dry-aging room, which had a dirty floor. With so many choices out there it's fun to try new places like this one (new to us, at least) but unless a place is really great we'll keep shopping around for better. Your mileage may vary."

  • "I have been to the Prime before and it never disappoints. The food is excellent. The Buffalo steak is so tender you can cut it with a fork. My family has had just about everything, from the Rosemary chicken to the Crabcakes and I don't think they have a bad dish in the place. The wait staff is always friendly and accommodating. I recommended this restaurant to some friends and they also had a wonderful experience. And during Denver Restaurant Week they are by far the best deal you can get."

  • "I had placed in the notes that I would like a booth, instead I received a small table, at first by a window and I asked to move then another small table. When I was there plenty of booths were open and available."

  • "Went for 5280 menu... Food was delicious!! Our waitress Jessica was great and had lots of excellent recommendations. Also the happy hour menu looks incredible. I will definitely be going back."

  • "The food was amazing, but other than that nothing special especially for the price. The waiter seemed to be in a rush to get us out of there and there was no time in between the starters, entree and dessert. We were not even finished with our steaks when we were handed the dessert so we felt rushed out of the place. I will not be returning or would not recommend it."

  • "Top notch food, particularly the steak and seafood, with delicious salads and sides. All made to order. And Justin is the best server in Downtown Denver. We go every time we have DCPA tickets!"

  • "The steak was delicious but the small plates, lamb and tuna were just average and the baked potato was not cooked well. Overall, we felt it was overpriced for the quality we received."

  • "Went to Prime Steakhouse during 5280 Denver Restaurant Week and was very underwhelmed. Definitely not worth full steakhouse price! Inside it looks slightly dilapidated and sad. There were very few other diners there when I went and I quickly learned why. The service is good but nothing to write home about and the food is plain. Our side vegetable was steamed broccoli...which came as a whole head of unseasoned broccoli that we had to cut up ourselves. This is not Denver's finest steakhouse by any stretch of the imagination..."

  • "Everything was way beyond our expectations! The food was amazing, the martinis were great (a good pour) and our server, Jessie, was very attentive to all our needs. We will definitely be going back. This is our new "go to" place when going to the DCPA."

  • "A friend had recommend the Prime Steakhouse and their Dinner Theater menu. The meal was excellent and the gentleman who was our server was friendly and efficient and made the dining experience very enjoyable. I"m sure we'll be back as we did enjoy the dining experience"

  • "We have often thought about going to the Prime before attending a play at the DCPA. This gave us the opportunity to try them and were not disappointed. We shall return often."

  • "If the service and atmosphere weren't so great, I would've asked for my money back. We ate very early and the place was not busy at all. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed by the food itself. My date ordered her steak medium well and it came medium rare and was still cold. My steak was cold and cooked medium well. The server made it a point to tell us the plates were hot - well, that was the only thing that was hot! The broccoli was bland and fortunately the potatoes were very good. We booked our evening with the 5280 dinner offer and we're excited to try a new place. We would not go back again and definitely not recommend prime steakhouse. You would think they would go above and beyond during this offer. Disappointed!"

    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Because of restaurant week Prime was behind in seating reservations. When we got to our table the waiter was way behind and very much made up for his tardiness by bringing us and extra side and dessert. We were happily chatting with each other and didn't even expect for him to go out of his way, because he did I totally would recommend Prime! The food was also tasty."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Everything was wonderful. The ambiance, the service and the food tasted awesome. We talked about it all the next day and how we would go back again and recommend it."

  • "A very nice restaurant but very dated. The ceiling tiles were water stained and some look like they would fall. The restrooms were very worn. It makes me wonder what condition the kitchen was in. Not what I thought an upscale restaurant should be."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "The actual steak was good. Sides of mashed potatoes and Au gratin were very plain. Too expensive for the quality and what you get."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "It was ok; not bad, nor great. Service was good, staff friendly. Food was mediocre: side portions were small (I also like my broccoli cooked a bit more, but I'm not dinging them for that because that's a more personal preference). Two of my guests had the 8oz buffalo filet and one was about half the size of the other. It was fine, just nothing special."

  • "Great service. Great food. The Lobster Bisque was the best my wife has ever had. Filet mignon was delicious and cooked to perfection. We will go back and pay full price!"
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "I was a little disappointed in the service. Yes I know it is restaurant week and the nature of that does interfere with your dining experience but still that quality of restaurant service should be good. First, our server spilled some wine on the table. Not a big deal but when my boyfriend has to tell him to tilt his wrist when pouring wine that is a little much. Then I had to ask 3 times for bread after it. Finally, my boyfriend's entree came and it was the wrong entree. He ordered the filet and I ordered filet mignon and lobster tail. They dropped the same two entrees. When I informed the server he didn't apologize but basically implied that's what he ordered. My boyfriend is allergic to shell fish so clearly not what he ordered."

  • "We chose Prime since it was close to the theater and they had one of the best menus during Restaurant Week. We had low expectations but were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, perfectly presented and prepared, and the service was outstanding. While the exterior gives the appearance of being a "hole in the wall" and the interior is a bit dated, the food is well worth it. We will be back."

  • "I came across Prime Steakhouse through a travelzoo coupon a few years ago and have been hooked ever since. The restaurant is located 1 block from 16th street and is often missed. During the week you can typically walk in without reservations and be seated immediately, except when there are shows at the Performing Arts Center. Don't be fooled by the open tables, Prime is one of the best steakhouses in Denver. I have visited the restaurant at least 10 times and my steak is cooked to perfection each and every time. The service is very good, the ambiance is really nice and the food is always amazing. If you haven't tried Prime Steakhouse yet -- I highly recommend it!"

  • "With Restaurant Week in town in Denver, reservations were hard to come by. Despite mediocre reviews, I snagged a reservation for business dinner at Prime because it could accommodate our group size and required time. Everything was remarkably average and our server was new, so service was slightly below average. Honestly, nothing stood out here at all. Ironically, I was the only one that got seafood (salmon) and it was indeed above average. My guests all concurred, everything was average. They messed up 3 of our 4 mix drink orders. Didn't have the wine we ordered that was on their menu. Had to repeatedly ask for dirty dishes and plates to be removed, etc. Again, not terrible, just so many better options."
