    Very disappointed with the restaurant. It used to feel like a little gem although it is in the front of Lenox Mall. Tonight it felt like that restaurant in the mall. A Chef Tom's staple, Hot Chili Seafood was not hot and was soggy, soaked in Thai sauce. It actually tasted boiled. My drink, vodka w/tonic had an aftertaste, a hallmark of old tonic. This used to be a place for grown ups. Tonight, it looked like a day care center. Conversation inaudible. Noise level impossible. I don't think I will be returning anytime in the near near near future.

    Prime rarely disappoints. They have a huge sushi menu, great steaks and sides. The NY strip was cooked to perfection. Everyone in our group that ordered the salmon said it was delicious. There jalapeno grits are always delicious, along with the handcut French fries. They recently added calamari as a standalone appetizer which I still want to try. I love those freah cheese rolls.... They are phenomenal. We had our waiter bring extras. All in all, this is one of my favorite Atlanta restaurants and would recommend it for small romantic dinner or large groups.

    I have been going to Prime regularly since it opened two decades ago. In all aspects it has remained very good and consistent. I can walk there and I am a neighborhood regular, even though it is located in the largest, busiest mall (Lenox) in the Southeast and draws tourists and regulars. Although this visit was for dinner, I am a lunch (at bar) regular, and it is probably one of the best lunch values for quality and choices in ATL. You can go in jeans and a polo shirt to a suit and tie and feel comfortable. Prime is part of the "Here to Serve" ATL restaurant group and is probably that group's "Mercedes"; dependable; high quality, and a fabulous "daily driver". When Victoria tends bar, she makes you feel as if you're in her home!

    My wife ordered a bone in rib eye. Shoe leather would have been more tender. The rib eye was not prime meat, by any stretch of the imagination, a fact confirmed by staff. (it's choice grade). For $37 it was shameful. My filet was fine, but for some reasons doused in a pool of after added au jus,(as was the rib eye) resulting in steak in soup, but I suppose to create the (false) impression of juiciness. Mashed potatoes were fine as were the mushrooms, but the creamed spinach was served in a pool of cream flavored sauce. We have been visiting this restaurant as a couple for 14 years, and I as a single for longer. Too bad the quality seems to have fallen way down. Too many excellent steakhouses nearby to put up with this.

    I enjoyed my experience at Prime. The staff were friendly and professional. The service quick and the food was very good. It is great if you want a classy but casual meal with family or you can put on your best for a nice evening with your significant other. The noise level was just right for either occasion. Prime is definitely on the list for a return visit.

    Recommend Prime in Lenox mall as a good place to eat for family or business. I was on business and it was pouring out so we went to the closest resturant in the mall. Cant go wrong with Prime. I had the sushi which was fresh and very tasty, other 2 colleagues had the Cod and the Salmon. Cheesy grits and whipped sweet potatoes were excellent. Waiter was a little slow but we were not in a hurry. Cant go wrong!

    We went to Prime for my wife's birthday dinner and had a great time. It was my first time there, but my wife has been a few times working across the street. The dinner rolls with the cheese topping is outstanding and the seafood I had was the best. My wife had a New York Strip with a few glasses of a outstanding wine. It was a great evening with outstanding food and outstanding service at a great price.

    I took my dad to Prime while he was in Atlanta for a workshop. The food and service was excellent! I had the salmon and pepper jack cheese grits and my dad had the shrimp and grits, we also had an Ozeki Roll and everything was DELICIOUS! The salmon was seasoned and prepared perfectly and the shrimp were HUGE! The cheese grits were creamy and delicious. Not extremely affordable but well worth every penny! I will be back OFTEN!

    I have been to Prime several times over the last 10 years and they always have such amazing food. I have brought many people there that can not believe how wonderful it is as I think people tend to overlook it due to the location or it may not be trendy enough. If you are more interested in great food than a "trendy" place where people just want to be seen then you should definitely give it a shot.

    My wife and I dined at Prime to celebrate her birthday. We both ordered seafood dishes, Crab stuffed Lobster Tail and Shrimp and Grits, both were amazing in terms of flavor and portion. I highly recommend the sushi bar at Prime as it is always fresh; the Dragon Roll is one of the best in Atlanta. Nice ambiance and great natural lighting. I like the fact that you can be comfortable in posh, night on the town attire or jeans and polo. Service was great...we'll be back soon.

    I have been dining at Prime for over 8 years. It is the only place I will order a steak. The steaks are marinated and cooked in a way that maintains the natural juices. My favorite sides are the sweet chile spinach and mushroom ragout. Prime is inside Lenox Mall and is an oasis to escape from the hustle and bustle of shoppers. The ambience is quietly elegant with its crisp white table cloths and cobalt blue stemware. They recently changed the chairs from upholstered to leather and added 4 chandeliers and matching sconces.

    We went for brunch on Mother's Day with reservations at 12:00. There was not one item that was brunch-like on the menu, no special menu for the special day. We expected eggs Benedict, omelettes or other breakfast items along with the regular menu, but did not find any of those things. Our service was excellent but the menu was a big disappointment.

    The service at Prime was impeccable, from the moment we walked into the restaurant until we left. Our waiter seemed to have a lot of responsibilities on our night, but was always ready to make us comfortable. The food was delicious from the shrimp and delightful grits to the petite filet. My steak melted in my mouth. Interesting cocktails and a delicious birthday celebration treat of cheesecake added to our enjoyment.

    My boyfriend and I went to Prime for our one year anniversary. He is a huge steak fan which what led us to choosing this restaurant. Our waitress, Mary, was very friendly asking us questions to get to know us better. When we told her we were out celebrating our first anniversary, she surprised us as the end with cheesecake and champagne! I definitely recommend ordering crab cake as an appetizer at Prime.
