Great spot for a work celebrationWe had a workplace celebration lunch. Food and service were excellent, and it was quiet enough that we could converse.
Likely we will return. Staff felt pleased with the venue, and it was a great "thank you" for a project successfully completed.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but not excitingEverything was nice, the service the food the atmosphere, etc. However, there wasn't anything to write home about. It was your typical steak house. If someone was looking for a good steakhouse to go to I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Prime. If I wanted to wow someone with a recommendation, I would chose a different place.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I visited PortlandMy husband and I visited Portland Prime. The food was delicious. The salmon was some of the best my husband has ever had...high praise! Service was slow, but friendly. The place is LOUD... Better for a group or family than a romantic evening. Lots of young children there...odd for the price...but because of the adjacent hotel I was told. Casual attire on most diners. (typical Portland). All in all, it was a nice place on the "special"...just not the romantic place I'd hoped for on my birthday. The manager did come around and check on diners which was a nice touch. Great for a group who want to celebrate! Nice private room for parties available too.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic steak house with someClassic steak house with some welcome Northwest restraint. Good for special occasions or romantic dinners.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening diningHad a great date night in which my a special request were carried out and it was obviously Portland Prime treats their guests with curdicy and a smile.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVery ComfortableWe went for a 5pm dinner prior to a 7:30pm show. Had a wonderful, relaxed time. Able to have a couple of drinks as well as an unrushed dinner and still plenty of time to make it to our show.
Our waiter "Lou" was a gem! So friendly and attentive. We would go back again just to see him!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellenceWe will be returning. Scrumptious food, subdued atmosphere, attentive servers. On the spendy side, but oh so worth it.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat EveningWe went to Prime before we went to see Rock of Ages, both were outstanding. The service was great and the food was wonderful. We had a very enjoyable evening. We will be returning to Prime, and would suggest it to all our friends.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNIce for that special occasionWe actually went there for the June $29 3-course meal. This was our first time at Portland Prime. The prime rib was very good and the Wild Salmon (Copper River) was excellent. Our waiter (Sean) was excellent. He took the time to go over menu with us and gave us good suggestions. Just be ready for spend some money on your meal and drinks/wine.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulMy husband and I have been wanting to eat at a proper steakhouse for a while so when I saw this place in a magazine and read the reviews we both had high expectations. The server was absolutely wonderful and very experienced. We didn't even have time to read through the menu and he already suggested what their best steak was and what wine would be perfect for it according to our taste. He took everything we said into consideration. Food came out quickly and we we were extremely satisfied. Will definitely be coming again!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding fine dining experience.Outstanding fine dining experience. Absolutely the best steak ever!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWeird but trueOverall a good experience. But the waiter kept touching guests... All be it a light touch on the shoulder, but as a server, you never ever touch a guest. It's not appropriate no matter the situation, unless its a family member or friend.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice anniversary dinner!We enjoyed our 25th anniversary diinner at Prime!

I ordered the special, bone in ribeye, and was disappointed in the fact it was flavorless and gray in color. Not at all what I would expect from a Steakhouse. My wife's filet was good, nothing special.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was awesome andOur waiter was awesome and really made the night special for my wife and I. We are expecting a child in the next few weeks and it was our last nice meal out for a long time (I imagine) and he went out of his way to make it special.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been here before andWe have been here before and find it to be equal to the Ringside and less expensive than it and the other high-end chain steak houses in our fair city. Simply said, they have their act together as the food and service quality have been consistent each time.1/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThey offer a well thoughtThey offer a well thought out menu with a great selection. The consensus around the 7-top table is that everyone really liked their food (on our table we had a variety of fish tacos, soup, salads, steak, fish, and sandwiches). Some had been there for happy hour prior, but agreed that it is a place that is easily forgotten about unless frequented into dining out routine. Great service, expected low noise level; surprisingly quiet even though right near the open kitchen. We would definitely choose for a business lunch destination again.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
