    The service at Prime is outstanding. We wanted to eat a few different items on the menu and they did not discourage family-style dining. The waiter was able to present a nice plate for each of us with 3 different entrees we chose. The food was excellent and the atmosphere very elegant. We are frequent diners at Prime and I brought friends for lunch to treat them to a great meal. They were also very pleased.

    I ordinarily order a filet when I come here and I decided to try the salmon after having the Chilean Sea Bass some time ago. I was disappointed that the Chilean Sea Bass was not available on a Saturday night. The salmon was just OK. Two at our table had the bone-in rib eye and enjoyed theirs thoroughly. The shrimp and lobster won tons were delicious but very pricey -$16 each. I didn't find a lot of the appetizers to my liking but I can be picky. Service was outstanding, the food overall was very good and the portions for beef are over the top. It is one of those restaurants I'd love to visit a few times a year. If you're on a budget this is a tough place to dine!

    Prime has amazing food (SUSHI ROLLS OUT OF THIS WORLD) and excellent service. Only issue is regarding the Heaters within the out-door patio section. Apparently 2 heaters are connected per 2 tables. The table behind us claimed that they were very hot (they had multiple layers of clothes) and requested that their heater to be turned off, which turned ours off. When our heater was turned off, we asked several times to turn our heater back on, since we were cold. It was not till the end of our meal, that it was noted that the heaters were connected. We should have been told about this from the moment we were given our option as to where to sit.

  • Everything was very good, Except...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    They did an excellent job with the decor; we hadn't been there since the CoCo's days. Staff was professional, everything was nice, very pricey, but we were expecting that. so everything was good... except for the FOOD. The steaks lacked taste for the other couple. My wife's steak was undercooked-she sent it back, then it was overcooked- she ended up only taking a few bites- it was too tough to chew. I ordered butternut squash ravioli, which they were kind enough to serve as an entree even though it was on the menu as an app only. It came out very oily; not sure if it was intended to be served that way, but it seemed like they let it sit in oil for a while before serving it. Not terrible, but certainly not worth the HIGH PRICES we paid.

    I will preface this review by saying I am not one to complain about restaurants - I also never send back food. For years my family has made this our go-to birthday/anniversary/celebration restaraunt. It might be time, however, to find an alternative. Service was excellent. Our waiter was friendly, attentive, and knowledgable. That's about it for the highlights As a whole, the meal was disappointing. The delicious bread basket of the past was no where to be found. Instead, we were served semi-stale, room-temp dinner buns that left much to be desired. Appetizers were OK but nothing to write home about, and the entrees fell flat. One steak came out rare when ordered medium, one steak was tough, tuna tasted fishy, sides were greasy.

    The evening I came for dinner was coincidentally alsothe first night for Restaurant week. I was not aware of this at the time of making the reservation. I was not aware of the pri-fix menu until I was on my way out. Although the steaks I ordered were not on the pri fix menu, the chicken that one of my guests ordered was. This special menu should have been offered or told us by the server. Aside from that, food and service were excellent. However, once one of our guests ordered a meal that turned out to have been on the Restaurant Week pri-fix menu the special pricing should have been offered.

    We had not been to Prime in some time. It was great to be able to sit outside on a fall day and enjoy the beautiful view. Our waiter, Anthony, could not have been more attentive to our dietary issues and was a funny guy as well. The sushi we ordered for lunch was delicious. We had a very relaxing experience and look forward to coming back soon.

    overall, everything was well done. my only complaint was two of the dishes were room temperature, barely warm and the restaurant was maybe a third full. there's never an excuse for it but i like to believe it's an isolated situation. dumplings were plump with fish, sushi roll surprisingly was a little underwhelming, truffle fries had great crunch but i expected better flavor. wellington was cooked perfectly as was the steak. spinach was one of the room temp dishes. it wasn't overly salty and overall was just ok. the wine was pricey but had the flavors we love in a cab. $230 without tip, a splurge dinner and worth it.

    Were seated promptly at a table with a view and quickly provided with warm rolls. Meal started off well with the Prime Salad and Gnocci appetizers and the main courses (filet, scallops) and sides that followed were also excellent. Service was generally attentive with one minor glitch handled immediately and with class by the hostess. While not inexpensive, prices are commensurate with similar dining establishments and we wouldn't hesitate to return when next in the neighborhood.

    Love going for special occasions, hate waiting for an outdoor table but decided to. Went to outdoor bar for a drink, bartender was rude & continued a conversation with a waitress for 5 minutes before telling me it would be a minute. Finally sat (40 minutes after res time) & was totally ignored. After 15 minutes, no menu, no bread, the waiter finally figured we were his table & apologized. Still 20 more minutes for bread at which point we were starved.Food was good, the waiter apologized 2x which redeemed him, but when I sit & wait for an outdoor table for 2 & the 4 tops remain empty my entire wait I often wonder why they wouldn't seat us there?We could have eaten & been done in the time we waited.Beautiful view, not my best experience here.

    The food and service were excellent. We had oysters for starters and they were very fresh. Then we had the filet and the bison rib eye and they were cooked perfectly. The table had a great view. It was quiet enough for a nice conversation and since it was lunch time, it wasn't so busy and we could enjoy a long relaxing meal. Then we enjoyed the view on the deck fir awhile before leaving. All in all, a very nice experience.

    Food was tasty but three out of four entrées served cold. While the waiter was pleasant enough he was not attentive enough. Worst of all the table of six seated next to us drunk and very loud and rowdy. Their waiter did not help the situation because he and continued to serve shots, etc. This behavior was really for a bar restaurant not the main dining room in what should be an elegant atmosphere Overall we did not have a great evening and while I've been here before will think twice before returning.

    Since moving to Huntington about a year ago, we had been told about Prime, so I decided to book a table for my husband's birthday. I mentioned that it was his birthday and we'd like a table with a view. We got something of the view, but to see it, we had to sit in seats that were in line with the next very busy room with servers rushing in and out. The menu was pretty ordinary, we thought, although our tuna was cooked well. Too bad it came out lukewarm, as did the sweet potato fries which were well-prepared and tasty but also lukewarm. The service was uninformed, the ambiance was basically noisy and frenetic. We will return for a drink to use up the $25 gift certificate we were given (not sure why), but then, never again.

    Took two friends here because of the outdoor dining near the water. Food was not impressive. Hamburger was dry and lobster was so tough I could not eat it. (actually had to spit it out) It's a shame because it was not cheap, but mostly because I was embarassed for my friends.
