    I had the salmon which was cooked perfectly. I can never order red velvet cake any where else because it won't ever be this good! It came with ice cream in the middle! It's easy to get to in Atlanta because it's in the mall! So, make reservations, shop and then relax at Prime!!!

    We were in Atlanta to visit our daughter & her fiance and wanted to take them out to dinner. Googled 'restaurants in Buckhead' and Prime came up as an option. Menu looked good and it was close to her office. Wow! Everyone had a different entree and everyone loved their choices! Prices were reasonable and food was delicious. Our server was present when needed, but didn't hover. Would definitely recommend this if you're in the area!

    I'm not a fan of sushi so I usually get the $12 salmon lunch at Prime. The meal is gluten-free without modification and it's always perfect! On my recent visit, I met a friend who loves sushi and she was thoroughly impressed by her choice (lunch special of the day). There is a great hot tea selection and as long as you sit facing away from the entrance, you'll forget you're in a mall. The only minor complaints I have is that Prime doesn't have black napkins anymore (preferred when you're wearing black clothing) and they have never had anything interesting for dessert if you can't eat gluten. This seems to be a theme in all of Catherall's restaurants which is why I never go to any of them for dinner.

    This was the first restaurant my husband and I had gone to when we first started dating. I must say that even five years later, I am still in love with this restaurant. The food is delightful! They have great customer service and will accomadate you as much as they can. The event planner over the private dining was so helpful and she made sure things went smoothly. I recommend all couples go to this restaurant and try it at least once. Special moments I will never forget!

    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.

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!
