    We found the food to be very good. The service was decent, but they seemed a little short staffed with the waiters/teams running around tables. The energy in the dining room was good, but it would have been nice to have some background music. The piano was very loud by the front entrance but didn't flow into the dining room well. We were both very happy with our food (soup, bread, steak & salmon)

    While the service was good and the atmosphere was nice, the food just wasn't very enjoyable. My French Onion soup was very bland. My steak was extremely salty and stringy. The shrimp were dry and the Grouper was also very salty. The food was just not very good.

    Appetizers, sides, and salads were terrific. Service was good but not comparable to Rubys or R. Chris. My filet was completely dry and overdone and I was shocked that a Chef would send it out. I could tell by just looking at it. I ate 1/4 of it and the server did not ask if anything was wrong with the steak. I have never written a review, but felt the need. I am calling management as well. I didn't say anything at the time so as to not ruin the evening and draw attention to a peaceful night. Will not be going back even though the apps and sides were great.

    Absolutely loved Prime!! The service was incredible..great place for our Ladies Night All White Labor Day Dinner. Crab cake was to die for, huge portion, glad I went with my first choice. Lactose intolerance can put a damper on dessert, but their Raspberry Sorbet was perfect! I will definitely be back, sooner than later!!

    We took friends to Prime 47 last night - it was first visit for both couples - what a fabulous restaurant and experience. The inside of the restaurant was beautiful and the ambiance was also. The food was outstanding and the service by Paul and Jason was probably the best I have ever experienced. We were not rushed and were able to enjoy the company of our friends in a great setting with unbelievable food. We will definitely return and I will make sure to recommend to friends and business associates.

    This was our first time at Prime 47 Cincinnati location. We were disappointed with the quality, taste of the food and value offered for the price when compared with other fine dining restaurants we go too. We fine dine several times a week and am disappointed with the experience we had at Prime 47

    This is a terrible restaurant. No ambiance at all. Terrible food from bread (undercooked), salad ( no taste, very little dressing on a caeser) worse steak ever (couldn't cut it, no taste) and potatoes that came with it were cold. Blueberry bread pudding dessert had no blueberries.

    I'm sorry to say but the food was not very good at all. The strip steaks were removed from our checks because they were not seasoned and very tough to cut so we could not eat them. We have dinner at several of Cincinnati's top steak houses and was very disappointed with Prime47. However the service and atmosphere were wonderful. I had such high expectations because of how we were greeted and the friendliness of the servers only to be let down by the taste and quality of our steaks.

    I've been to almost all the steakhouses in cincy. Prime 47's filet was very comparable to Rubys, which I consider top notch. The salmon was also delicious and cooked perfectly. Portions are not outrageous. You leave feeling satisfied, but not overly stuffed. Piano player is seriously awesome. Perfect for a date night and perfect location to hit up the downtown bar scene afterward. Would highly recommend!

    Beautiful white table cloth experience. Service was very good and the manager stopped at our table several times to make sure everything was fine. Filet was excellent as were the potatoes and salad. We were there for Dodowntown Cincinnati so menu was limited and portions smaller than usual. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion.

    The food was pretty good but not for the money that was spent. Also, the wait time took too long for our satisfaction, but the wait staff were really nice. Menu is overpriced and I would say there are other upscale restaurants that are worth the money for better quality of food.

    Hidden in the heart of Downtown Cincinnati, we dined at Prime 47 for my husband's birthday. I must say we had an amazing experience from the moment we walked in until the moment we left. The food was amazing. Our waiters, Chris and Billy, were a joy to have and very knowledgeable of the food and wine list. Chris was a steak connoisseur. Prime 47 even went the extra mile to print "Happy Birthday" on my husband's menu. We both enjoyed ourselves.

    We had filet mignon 8 oz steak medium rare and sesame crusted tuna rare. Both entrees were overcooked. Steak was unseasoned and tasteless. Our sides were good, mashed potatoes and asparagus, but poor presentation. This was an expensive meal and the food was only so so. We did appreciate the manager coming over to our table and asking about our meal. The restaurant is in a great location, but the quality of food did not live up to expectations.

    We believe this restaurant certainly rivals some of our favorites, including the Jeff Ruby locations and Jag's. Our appetizer was bursting with flavor (scallops), both of our entrees were incredible (filet Oscar and sea bass) and the chocolate dessert was heavenly. The wine selection was perfect and even the bread had incredible flavor! We were treated like royalty from the moment we entered to the time we walked out the door. Our service was outstanding. We were celebrating our anniversary and the staff really made sure we enjoyed our time there. They took a photo of us and even provided a small frame. Yes, this is fine dining with the cost. However, we walked away amazed and felt it was well worth the price.

    Several weeks after visiting for drinks, we decided to celebrate our anniversary here. We were treated like royalty, had the hostess take our picture, which she presented to us framed as a gift. Paul, our server, and Evan, the bartender provided the utmost in service. Food was amazing, which surprised us considering they are competing with several very successful steakhouses. We split the rib eye and crabcake, both of which were outstanding. The dessert of warm chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and hot fudge was to die for. Can't say enough good things about our experience.

    We had never tried Prime 47 (although we have been to most of the other steak places in town) but decided to try it for my birthday. It was a great choice. We had a seat at the window with great people watching and an attentive and excellent server in Paul. Food was great, deep and reasonably priced wine list. Would definitely go back.

    Food was wonderful. We had the proscuitto wrapped scallops as an appetizer. The bread came out after the appetizer, but it was delicious! I had the filet Oscar style and my husband has the KC strip. We agreed that my filet was the best and we got the cheddar mashed potatoes to complete the meal. Everything was so good and they even brought us a cookie/ice cream dessert since we were having a much needed date night away from the kids! I would definitely go back, but I'm not sure how long it will last because there were only about 10 tables seated in the whole restaurant while we were there (8pm on a Saturday night in the middle of the summer!)

    Not only was the food spectacular but they came and took our picture then put it in a frame on our table. We loved it! The crab cake was the best one I have ever had. The chunks of crab were huge, and it was not a small cake like you can get at some other fine dining. We also enjoyed the meat cut presentation to show their cuts of meat they offer. We would definitely go back and will highly recommend this resturant to others.

    Special menu: one shared appetizer; we chose calamari and shrimp; plenty for two people; very tasty two entrees; we both had filet mignon; very tender; perfectly cooked two salads or soup; caesar salad was nothing special; lobster bisque was quite good one shared desert; we chose brownie with ice cream; plenty for two people; very rich, very good All this for $70; quite a deal and a good introduction to the restaurant. Excellent service from Paul and Charlie. Best thing was that even though we had the special (inexpensive) menu, we not treated like suboptimal customers (this happens elsewhere). Highly recommended.

First time visit, was told waiter would bring out selection of cuts of meats, never happened. broccoline was cold, baked potato was it seemed microwaved, 8oz filet was very tender, chopped salad was good, loved the bread. ordered dessert never came until we asked why. valet service was another disaster, delivered car across the street!!!
