    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.

    perfect, romantic spot for an evening out with amazing steak. don't let the fact it is inside a spectacular hotel on the beach fool you…this is NOT hotel food. our steaks were cooked to juicy, tasteful perfection, and the service was all you could expect of a 5 star restaurant. pricey…but very worth it!

    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!!!!!!!

    Undoubtedly we are fortunate enough to have many of the finest restaurants in the United States located just a stones throw away between Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach. Hollywood Prime sets the example in terms of fine dining in South Florida. 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.

    Been to Prime in the past and the place needs an overhaul. Waiters are obnoxious as are hostesses. Food came cold. Bread was rationed. A dining experience this was not. They should send staff to Victoria & Albert's at Disney for training. This is a beach conference center tourist trap.

    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 fiance & I were looking for a great steakhouse in the Hollywood area after getting engaged, and we definitely found it! Amazing food, we had the porterhouse steak, with a few sides. Oysters for appetizer were fresh & yum! Bread was amazing! Try the truffle has browns, you won't regret it! Atmosphere was quiet, we went on a Sunday night. Great, attentive service. Can't ask for more.

    We have been several times now, and Prime is still our favorite South Florida steak restaurant. The sides are also fantastic. We got the hash browns with truffle oil and the brocolini. This is the only place I've been that offers a filet mignon with the bone in! Remarkably better steak!

    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.

    This is a great steakhouse with some of the best tasting steaks I've had in South Florida. I took my parents for Easter dinner and they loved it. I was greeted by a wonderful hostess upon arrival and was quickly seated. There were times where I think our server could have been more attentive in terms of us ordering our meal and making sure we had menu's. Other than that, I had an amazing time and I will be back

    I don't know if I would go again. The atmosphere was lovely, service was great not amazing. The food, I don't feel was worth the price. I ordered the Foie Gras- not one I would do again. The filet- tender- yes but not wonderfully so, but was flavorful. Portion size was tiny and I ordered it MW, it came out MR- I ate a little - sent it back to have it cooked a little longer, it still came back MR so, I gave up and ate a little more -I am not a fan of bleeding meat). Side of cheese potatoes with it- they were good but greasy. To finish I had the sorbet- best part of the meal. The wine list was by far the most impressive and amazing part of the entire experience. If one is a wine enthusiast- it is a must see! Host was very nice and friendly.

    My husband & I had dinner here for my birthday. It was the last noght of our vacation. We chose the restaurnat because we were staying at the hotel. It turned out to be a much richer experience than I expected and our server was a doll. My husband had the porterhouse which was delicious and I had the butter braised lobster which was devine. Our server gave me a nice dessert for my birthday which was a classy touch. The cocktails we had were tasty but no strong enough for the price tag. I would definetly come back again, if I iwas in south florida.

    We celebrated our anniversary at the westin diplomat and looked up their restaurants.. based on the amazing reviews we made a reservation at hollywood prime. The reviews were right.. romantic atmosphere, excellent service, and delicious food. It is pricy but we looked at the menu ahead of time, so no surprises there. The waiter brought us an anniversary dessert (free) which was really nice. The service was very good, they were extremely attentive. I had the swordfish which was delicious, and a surprisingly large size. I hate going to expensive restaurants with tiny portions, and these portions were great. Sides are family style so be prepared to share.

    We've been to Hollywood Prime several times since it opened. They always make us feel special and that they are truly glad we are there. I love steak and have been to most of the steakhouses in South Florida. Hollywood Prime is consistently one of the best. The long bone ribeye was outstanding and the sides were great and plenty for 2 people. Looking forward to our next visit already.

    This restaurant was above and beyond what we expected. There were 4 of us. We live in NY and eat at the top restaurants in the city often. The dishes that were ordered-rack of lamb and a filet, were among the best ever ordered, and this is a very critical group. As a vegetarian, I don't expect much from a steak house menu, but the salmon was perfect! The service was great. Never did we think that we would have such a great meal in the hotel restaurant. This was definitely the best part of the W experience.
