Diner Reviews
  • "The food was exquisite and the wait staff very attentive. No complaints."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "Atmosphere is maritime fun but the "prime" steak left me wanting. Appetizers were good but the main course was not a particularly good piece of meat nor was the marinade tasty."

  • "I came here to take my boyfriend out for his 25th birthday and I can't even emphasize how smooth and lovely everything went. We got there 30 mins earlier than our reservation, so we got a drink from the bar, sat down a bit and enjoyed the energetic atmosphere of the restaurant. We ended up going to the deck right below the porch which was a bit more private and calm compared to the rest of restaurant. On to our dinner, our server was outstanding. We got a caesar salad as an appetizer. As for our meal, I got the Colorado Lamb Rack and my bf got the Bone in Filet with a side of mashed potatoes. The food was cooked exactly how we wanted it. And the timing for everything was just right. Topped it off with some Chardonnay and some dessert!"

  • "We love to come to Prime for Birthdays in the summer. My husband enjoys the filet, I enjoy the lobster. It was a great night & we enjoyed drinks outside before dinner(sadly they couldn't sit us outside for our meal). Service was attentive, food was great. Loved the shrimp/lobster wanton appetizer & we shared a decadent chocolate cake dessert. I had recently been in for lunch on a Friday with a group for my Birthday & we had the pleasure of being outside, which in the summer, is where I prefer to be."

  • "It was my sister's Birthday so she had mentioned she would like to try Prime again. What a great suggestion, it was wonderful. The food was delicious. We both had the Wellington. Wow. The wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly efficient. The entire evening was truly enjoyable. Can't wait to plan our next trip back."

  • "Prime was absolutely OUTSTANDING!! We had gone for a special occasion, and were treated like royalty! We had requested, and received outdoor seating with a gorgeous water view. From start to finish; the experience was phenomenal. The staff and wait staff were superb. The food was plentiful and absolutely excellent. The menu was bountiful and had some very interesting choices - all cooked to perfection!! We could not have had a more magical experience. The ambiance was incredible and the view of the sun setting on the harbor was breathtaking. All-in-all a totally memorable and wonderful experience!!! <3"

  • "Arrived before the crowds on a beautiful summer evening. Ordered the watermelon salad...delicious! Everyone enjoyed the 'surf and turf' and our waiter/table service was outstanding! Terrific evening, good food, and ambiance unsurpassed! One of the best dinners ever at this restaurant. Look forward to returning."

  • "This was not our first dining experience & we were thrilled that our time was as great on this nite as our very first occasion. The food was amazing, the wait staff friendly but professional, the overall scenery was great. It can b pricey but it's worth the price."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We have come here quite often and it was always great service and food. However we had to wait over an hour for our food and when we asked several times our server said he was unsure why. He finally admitted that due to a private function our food would take very long. The private function was only for about 35-50 people. I am shocked that this happened. I don't want to stop coming to this restaurant as I have good experiences with it but if this is what happens for small private functions then may have to re think it."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Great place, if you are lucky enough to get a table with a view. Otherwise, it is overpriced to sit inside with no view on the water. When making my reservation, I was told they do not accept reservations for the tables outside, and they are on a first come, first served basis. They called the morning of to confirm, and explained that policy again. We arrived for dinner and I asked how long the wait would be to sit outside. They said, sorry, there is a private party outside and are not sitting people out there. Knowing that I wanted to be seated outside when they called to confirm that morning, they should have told me it would not be available. I was very disappointed when I was told once I got there, that it would not be an option."

  • "wow! this place is amazing...not only does the steaks and meats live up to the name, but the service and overall look of this restaurant is OUTSTANDING..it is our favorite place to go for steaks in Long Island..its a great package all wrapped up in a nice bow..pricing is high, but when is a good steakhouse NOT worth it right? amazing...totally blown away"

  • "The place was beautiful. Went to Prime for brunch and got an outdoor table. Wish it had been in shade. The harbor view was incredible. The bread basket was very nice. Overall we enjoyed it"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Prime is by far the best restaurant on Long Island, especially in the summer. Make your reservation but go early (especially on Saturday and Sunday) to hear the live music and enjoy a drink overlooking the water. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and the food is always terrific. Try the melt in your mouth gnocci appetizer or the creamy lobster bisque. The filets and porterhouse for 2 always melt in your mouth (I prefer the bernaise to the steak sauce, so ask for it!) and the whipped potatoes are luscious (ask for truffle oil to really make it special). For desert share a fondue or their refreshing sorbet."

  • "First, our waiter was terrific as was our table and view. But, ordered strip steak and lobster combo for two, around $100. Lobster tail and two claws came to table out of the shell (not ordered that way nor told that was how it would come) and steak ordered medium rare came medium well. sent the steak back and they brought back one very rare and cold in the middle. sent it back again and it came back ok. The view, the wine and the waiter made the dinner ok..until the check came with an extra $47 on the bill. sent that back for a revision. WHA???? not what we expect for a "prime" steak house. Probably wont go back."

  • "Outstanding dining experience. Took my wife (who grew up just up the hill when it was a parking lot) for dinner. Excellent view of the harbor, outstanding food, great wine list (including some top Long Island Wines) and impeccable service. Fillet and Bone In Fillet were superb. A wonderful restaurant for special celebrations."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "My only disappointment was dessert. Desserts at Prime have been pretty much the same for many years and they have not improved much. I had the crispy pineapple and although it was delicious, it lacked more components. It was served with a scoop of whipped cream and for a high end restaurant like Prime, that is just not good enough. A pineapple sauce decorated the plate and there was nothing else to keep the dessert interesting. The cheesecake was dry and a bit more decorated than the crispy pineapple, however the presentation was outdated. Desserts should reflect the season and neither pineapple not a cheesecake with caramel reflect that. The sorbet selection only had one seasonal fruit (strawberry). Prime deserves a great dessert menu."

  • "One of my favorite places to eat on Long Island...excellent food & service. It's definitely loud & vibrant, and quite a scene."

  • "The staff is not accommodating in that we have eaten there many times and they will never give us an outdoor table although we request it. When we arrive they always say it is a 45 minute wait and they are snobby"

  • "We had our anniversary dinner here, and wow ,we werent disappointed. We had gotten married next door at the Harbour Club, so the view was the same , spectacular! The food was interesting, the drinks were excellent and the view, did I mention the view."

  • "Went to Prime for a Special Birthday Dinner with my Husband........It was Amazing from Start to Finish. Food, Service, Ambience, and Employees - all get a 10 in our book. Thought the price was as expected! To top it off, I mentioned when I made the reservation, that it was a special birthday dinner, and they (without request) put a candle in our dessert! Now that is total customer service!"

  • "Great place to sit outside and take it all in. Very relaxing. Wait staff is quick and efficient. Food was amazing! What more is there to ask?"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "I expected food and server in the manner of their sister restauarant, Tellers, Mirabelle, or Insignia. It fell short. Beef wellington's pastry was not fully cooked, grits appetizer quite bland, and poor dessert selection. Highlights were the cowboy rib eye and Bison steak. Service, while friendly and ever present, lacked proper training. Servers pass food in any manner. Often like dealing cards. Those clearing the table did so with a lack of finesse. Not a bad time (my company was engaging) but not on the same par of the other noted restaurants."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "This is the second time my husband and I have brunched there. The delectable menu choices, the beautiful view, the personal best service all make this the number 1 choice for a civilized, memorable Sunday afternoon. We have enjoyed the eggs Benedict (hollandaise light as a feather), huevos rancheros, bruleed grapefruit, eggs and grits and pancake with fresh fruit. Each was special in taste AND presentation. Our servicers could not have been more attentive or personable."

  • "The Restaraunt is beautiful w equal views. Service was great and the food delishious however the homemade Bloody Mary should have been heartier as I had to ask for another 1 bc my first 1 was to watery . I would love to rt there for another memorable experience"

  • "We were so disappointed in Prime. There is no reason to eat there in the summer unless you are sitting outside, but outdoor tables aren't guaranteed, even when you request them for a special occasion through your opentable reservation. The food and ambiance inside are only ok, and not worth the high prices."
