    We have dined here many times in the past. Always a great meal. The steaks are stellar and always well prepared. The sides are great as well. Best potatoe fries ever. Desserts are good if you are not too full by then. Wine list is quite good as well as their dessert wines.

    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.

    A gorgeous setting, right on the water. You can arrive by boat and dock there too. When Prime is busy, it can be crazy busy. The parking lot can get filled on beautiful weekend summer nights and you are out of luck. Then have to find parking elsewhere. Bummer! I would actually call the restaurant instead of using Open Table. On OT is said that there was seating at 5:30 or the next available time was 9:00! So I took the 5:30. But at that time it turned out to be only about 35% full. And when we finally did leave the restaurant was only about 60% full. We easily could have made a 7:00 rez. Our server Christine was FANTASTIC! The food was amazing and delicious

    We were sat immediately, our water glasses filled and warm bread basket placed on the table. Our server offered up the specials, soup and special drinks of the day.The weather was perfect to sit out on the patio to enjoy the view of the harbor. We enjoyed shrimp cocktail, Caesar salad, rib eye and a filet(which had to be replaced -it was too well done). We also had broccoli and potato.

    When ever I go to Prime it I becomes a special occasion and the reason is simple the view is great the food is better than amazing and did I mention the view. You feel like you are on a day cation. I had the beef Wellington which was superb. My son and husband had a seafood stew and they said the fish was good but they thought the lobster was not as tender as they hoped.

    My father was in from out of town and we wanted to take him somewhere fun/on the water. I'd heard of Prime for years, this seemed like the best time try it. We got there a bit before our reservation and enjoyed some live music and a cocktail at the outdoor bar. We were seated promptly at our res time at a great table with water views. The sommelier was very helpful and we enjoyed the food. The service could have been slightly more attentive/informative. Apps: Montauk Roll and some dumplings;Mains: We enjoyed a deccent bottle of bordeau, which was perhaps a touch past its prime (no pun intended), two beef wellingtons and a filet with potatoes and creamed spinach. And the warm choc cake for dessert. Overall, Enjoyed! We will be back!

    Everytime we come here we are ignored and disrespected. This was our 3rd shot. We may appear young, and perhaps they don't think were going to tip well even though we come in dressed better than others (people were wearing tshirts) we're always seated terribly even though we make reservations and arrive early. Our last waiter ignored us and the bus boys who don't speak English (and I'm Hispanic) so I speak to them in Spanish are also rude. I don't care for that nasty vibe. We see other waiters chatting but I guess we're always unlucky. Not that prime needs our service but we'll be going elsewhere for steak.

    Prime has excellent food and excellent service. The view of the harbor is beautiful and makes for an amazing outdoor dining experience. We were there for our wedding anniversary - not really the place for a romantic dinner. It's quite trendy and populated by older (50-60's) singles trying to look young. I was a bit shocked to see how many balding men still try to put their thinning hair into ponytails! Overall, its a great place, but some of the patrons need a reality check.
