Diner Reviews
  • "I started off my meal with the Pineapple mojito. Phenomenal. I originally wanted a regular mojito, but my server suggested the pineapple version, and I am so glad he did. We shares two appetizers: bruschetta and gnocchi. Both very tasty. I ordered lamb chops, and my boyfriend ordered the bison. Ordered medium-well, the lamb chops were exquisite!!! Falling off the bone, the lamb chops were cooked to perfection with a simple, and delectable season of what just seemed like butter and salt. Absolutely delicious. Mac and cheese, our side dish that we shared, was also delicious. Lastly, our chocolate cake with coffee ice cream ended our dinner on a high note. Yummy!"

  • "What a wonderful evening. .. everyone was so nice. The hostesses told us there was a little waited for an outside table but it was shorter than they said, the waiter was nice and at our table every time we needed something and food and wine was amazing."

  • "Dinner and survive we're excellent.the table they sat us at was not.asked to be moved to another outside table and we were told could only move inside.reservation was made quite a few weeks in advance and was at 4:45pm so many tables were available."

  • "Though the food, service, and ambiance was phenomenal, Prime's best trait is its location and view on the water. My experience was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a summer dining spot."

  • "Everything was perfect. Only thing is it takes awhile to get an outside table. But over all, we'll worth the wait. And the wait staff are amazing"

  • "Went for lunch. The lunch was very good. Place was fairly quiet , but beautiful view. The waiter was not nice, had an attitude, nor could we understand him. Also, it took him a very long time before he took our order."

  • "Prime is one of our favorite restaurants on Long Island, we always celebrate our 'special occasion' their. Food and Service is always five stars. However, they are never on time when they tell you how long you have to wait for a table. There is nothing worst then telling me I have a 15 minute wait for a table and not get seated for 30 minutes or longer."

  • "My husband and I found ourselves without the kids for the day, so we decided to find a nice outdoor spot to eat dinner. Prime was the perfect place! We sat at an outside table which overlooked the water. The view cannot be beat! Our waiter was more than attentive and very friendly, making sure to fill our water glasses often because it was a rather hot evening. The beef Wellington and the surf and turf were cooked to perfection. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "But for the fact it is on the water, not sure if I would spend the high prices for the food here. It's extremely expensive, and I say that as an employed professional, meaning even someone who can afford it feels it's over the top! I come here for the fabulous outdoor dining and the less expensive menu that has a couple of things that are reasonable. Highly recommend the lobster roll and the burger is a good value and tasty. I don't come here for the dinners because there are options elsewhere in the town that are just as good if not better quality and with more reasonable prices. But it's great for sitting outside on the water for a light lunch and a drink."

  • "We dined last Saturday evening and celebrated both a wedding anniversary and birthday. Although we decided not to wait to eat out on the patio, we were accommodated by seating right by the window overlooking the harbor which turned out to be a better decision. The noise level in the restaurant allowed us to enjoy the conversation with the other couple celebrating with us. The staff was excellent and helpful and we enjoyed a fabulous meal and dessert. Everything we ate was delicious from the sushi, crab cake, salads and the main courses (Porterhouse and Ribeye). The staff was extremely kind and recognized my birthday with a single candle with my dessert while also giving me a gift card for a future visit to the restaurant."

  • "I waited more than an hour for a table (either inside or outside) and watched other people get seated before me. I had a 715 reservation and arrived at 7 and did not sit down until 830."

  • "Do not understand how a restaurant of this caliber with great food could decide to offer a bread basket with just cheese covered white bread rolls that might as well be doctored up Pillsbury frozen rolls. Have eaten at the Bohlsen Groups other venues and Tellers a least knows what good bread is. Needless to say I will still come here for the view and to eat out on the lower deck only. Extremely disappointed with the change that was made."

  • "They never honor their reservations, so be prepared to wait. The food is mediocre at best and the sushi rice sucks. WE ordered the seafood plateau and the king crab was spongy and the oysters were filthy. They charged me 7 dollars for their own "filtered" water when we ordered a bottle of flat h20. Every table got their "filtered" water. Whatever....I got scammed. Table service is good. Outdoor Bar service is horrible. They can be rude and overworked on the deck. Only go for the outdoor scene in the summerr and outdoor dining."

  • "A great place for Sunday brunch. Spectacular view of the harbor. Delicious food, great service. Took my father out for a special treat & WOWed him. Thank you to floor manager Jon Hayduk & Kathy Wolfgram for being so attentive & hands on to guest while dining. Definitely will be back."

  • "Prime is a great spot for all sorts of special occasions. The views over looking Huntington harbor are fantastic, especially on bright sunny days. The food, wait service, sommelier, ambiance, etc. are all excellent. The outdoor seating areas are nice but can be a bit "busy" at times, especially on weekends and in the later afternoons. Indoor dining in the main dinning area is typically quieter and quite enjoyable."

  • "We had the perfect Sunday late afternoon/early dinner surrounded by magnificent view, cheerful diners and wonderful music. Rob our waiter took special care of my elderly parents to make them feel special which was much appreciated. The food perfect from the Star Sushi to watermelon salad (only wish there was more on the plate but minor detail) to the perfectly prepared Salmon (very large serving). Try the Pineapple desert if you go."

  • "We went to celebrate a birthday, and the restaurant gave dessert on the house! Bonus. We were all satisfied with food and some dishes were unique. The food was very good, but not outstanding and memorable. It's the atmosphere and view that you will find yourself paying for. Whether you sit outside or inside, you will still get a view of the harbor."

  • "The service was excellent, food was. seating perfect will be going back."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I believe this place gets better and better each time I visit. The food was perfect. I loved the star rolls and the fact you can have sushi and/or more traditional American cuisine. Steaks are well prepared here but the 1 1/4 lobster appetizer - well that could be dinner. If you are lucky to sit outside, then I believe you have reached perfection in dinning. The entire staff are true professionals in every way to make your dinning experience one to remember. Expect to see me here every other week!"

  • "A great big thanks for making my anniversary special. They paid attention to the notes that it was my anniversary and even wrote it on the desert plate. Food & service were outstanding. Matt was checking in periodically to make sure we had everything we needed. GREAT night!"

  • "Wonderful service at this restaurant. Not rushed on Father's day. Great views of the water. We have dined here many times before and the food was better. We had brunch: eggs slightly overdone and the eggs benedict only ok. We had the early seating, so I don't know why. However service was great."

  • "On 1 hand the setting is beautiful on a nice night, & food is very good. On the other from the moment you walk in you're treated like cattle. There are tons of pretty girls waiting to seat you, yet, no warm greeting. You go to a desk, give them your name and they tell you to wait at the side. We got there at 7 for a 7:15 reservation, we requested outside, but were told we could only request outside at 7:15, and would have to come back to the desk then to request, and it would only be then that we could know how long the wait was.It would have been nice to walk in, tell me it would be 15 minutes for a table outside, and invite us to wait in the bar. The entire greeting process is a bit off putting and can set the tone for the night."

  • "In real estate, an okay house in a great location commands a higher price. Same goes for Prime. Nice table by the water with a sunset view is what you 're paying for at Prime. Food was good, but not good enough to drop 3 bills -- and didnt even have wine. Porterhouse just didn't have that "wow" taste and was a bit overcooked. Sides of creamed spinich and potatoes were nothing to get excited about."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We have been there a bunch of times with two kids 3&4, for an early dinner outside. Service was great. Everyone was super friendly. Even as the kids knocked over drinks and silverware repeatedly. Food was amazing. Great seafood, and perfectly cooked steaks."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We sat down 'dock side' and enjoyed the Young Rebel Goomba's who were playing great music that afternoon. We shared a Prime salad, which was perfectly dressed, and 2 sushi rolls. The Red Roof Roll, which we always get, and was full and delicious, and tried the Montauk Roll for the first time. It was just as good!! The view, atmosphere, and food can't be beat!! But our waiter (home on break from college?) could've used a lesson on how to do his job. He was very nice, but not very efficient....and forgot about us a few times. It won't stop us from coming back though!"
