Diner Reviews

  • "My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Prime and had a fantabulous time. The service was exceptional and so was the food. Will definently return."

  • "We were a group of six for Sunday brunch. The jazz band was great, food was great, sat outside looking at the water, it was beautiful. Thae server knew that there was a person in our party with a gluten allergy by looking at our reservation. It was my birthday and the server automatically walked over with macaroons, happy birthday written in chocolate and a strawberry with a candle. It was a a great dining experience."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "We arrived at 9:15 for our 9:30 reservation and weren't seated until 10. The food was great and so was the outdoor area."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "As usual Prime was outstanding. We have been here several times and each time seems even better than before. Service was outstanding and the food quality was top notch - from the sushi appetizers to our steaks - excellent !Summer is also a beautiful time to go. The outside bar is beautiful with the illuminated trees and water view with all the boats going by really sets a great mood for the night. We will definitely be back soon"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I typically don't have the money to dine at places like this but when I do I go all out. And I was NOT disappointed. The tuna steak drinks salmon Mac and cheese and deserts were all delicious. I highly reccommend it"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Prime is by far THE best place to dine in the summer. The view is incredible and you feel like your on vacation! Just a nice relaxing environment! Everyone is so nice & our waiter was the best I ever had!!! A must try for anyone who has never been"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "A bit pricey to make this a regular dining spot but an excellent choice for a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Prime had at all. Fine dining...casual dining.....bar scene on the water...perfect for everything! dont give it a second thought...book a table for dinner or just head over there for drinks!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "$106 for lunch that consisted of seven large stuffed shrimp (my friend and I shared), two cocktails, two desserts. Yikes!"
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Everything was excellent - only disappointment was waiting 30 minutes for a table, even with a reservation."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "If your looking for a hot Long Island crowd in a beautifully appointed space with amazing views Prime is your spot. If you think your going to get all that and an amazing meal its probably not going to happen. My wife and I regularly treat ourselves to all the amazing steakhouses NY and Long Island have to offer and are very familiar with high quality meats. We went with the porterhouse with a side of creamed spinach and mac and cheese. The sub par quality steak came out overcooked in a skillet with no au jus and the sides were so-so. Bottom line, if your an occasional steak eater the quality of Prime may be good enough and the scene will probably make up for it. If your a hardcore meat-eater Like I am Prime may fall short."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Their brunch menu includes many different, interesting and delicious options. I was thrilled with the selection where you could get a side of bruleed grapefruit with your entree choice😃. We were seated by a window overlooking the water, beautiful. Our brunch was preceded by a basket of delectable baked treats (coffee cake and chocolate bread), and our server was kind enough to make us an iced coffee upon request❤️."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Food was great... a bit pricy but good. Noise level was almost unbearable. Couldn't hear others at table."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Waiter was very attentative. Good food and nice ambiance. Would definetly come back."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "My last experience here was not pleasant but this time they redeemed themselves. We sat in the wine room which is so pretty and the food was excellent. I had the cioppino which was the best I ever had and the kale salad was yummy too. The only negative was that we went on a Friday night when the weather was just perfect and there was no parking. We had to find a spot on the street somewhere and walk. They have a shuttle that runs from the town, but that's even more of an inconvenience."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We have been going to Prime for years and it was terrible. $300 meal and we barely ate any of it. We are upset that we spent our anniversary there but we have spent every other anniversary there. I will not go back on a weekend it is so crowded and the meal suffered because of it."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I have been to Prime on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed the experience but my recent visit was much better. It certainly helped that the weather was great, it was crowded, but not too crowded, and I was with someone who really appreciated the Prime experience. The food and service were excellent and my waiter was fun and personable rather than stiff and corporate. Don't miss Prime in the summer; it is an excellent time to enjoy all it has to offer."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Prime has the BEST view and sunset, however be prepared for a long wait even though you have a reservation. We had a 7:45 reservation and was seated at 8:15."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "This is a five star meal. My husband and I were moaning in delight. Expensive , but worth every mouthful. The view of the boats in the harbor during sunset couldn't even compare to the taste of my Parmesan encrusted steak."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I love the Japanese Roll. The steak were alright. I ordered filet mignon. It was dry. I told the waiter to wrap it to go but when I get home my filet mignon wasn't there. I was so disappointed."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The service should be impeccable for the amount of money they charge. the waiter was not attentive to problems with 2 main courses that came out. Actually, he was argumentative. We asked for the steak to be medium, it came out very rare. The waiter said, " that was there medium". Also, we had an allergy issue. We were told no onions in the dish. The dish came out with onions. The manager apologized and took it away but didn't ask to get something else or take it off the bill. 1 epi pen later... The crab cakes were disgusting. they weren't lump crab, they were deep fried with a thick heavy coating and seemed frozen. they were mushy and full of mayo. It's a factory with a great view. Extremely disappointing if you're looking for fine dining!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I was able to make a last minute reservation and couldn't have been happier with the friendliness of the hostess, the greeters when you walk in, and the spot-on service throughout the entire meal. Our only complaint was that the appetizers portions were very small for the price, but other than that, everything was great. Happy we booked dinner here!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Good all around - excellent ambience, food etc etc"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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
  • "Great service, as always, and a wonderful dinner. Perfect evening with friends outside."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Had a fabulous brunch here and the views are wonderful! Our waitress Erica, was the best!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
