    Had Fri night reservation. Prime called us midday to confirm. We arrived on time. Andre, maitre'd said they were behind 10 minutes. We got a drink. Noticed a huge back up at the host stand. Steve, the owner had taken over. Others were grumbling their reservations were an hour late. A man 2nd in line for a 6 party reservation handed the OWNER $40 to move up a slot. After 1 hour we finally asked about an empty two top that hadn't been cleared for 20 min. 10 minutes later we asked the owner why the table was vacant for 30 min and he snapped it wasn't 30 it was 5. I told him it was 30 minutes wasted b/c they didn't bus the table he yelled "don't tell me how to do my job!" and stormed to the kitchen. No apology, no drink on the house. CLASSLESS.

    We had a reservation, called to say we would be late due to Traffic. Once we did arrive 15 minutes late, I was ignored by the the Maetrody while I stood there for another 10mins. When I finally caught his attention he was snarky and Very rude and proceeded to tell me our that our table was not even ready and we waited another 10minutes! They sat us at a small table next to a big group of youngsters which was not relaxing in the least. The restaurant was very loud and so over crowded, we had people waiting for their table right over my husbands chair. Very unpleasant!!! Would never go back and was not worth the price either!! A lot of other nice places in Del Ray.

    I was part of a party of five and the seating was very good with a round table. We all ordered steaks that were well prepared as were the sides. The only drawback was the high noise level so it was a little hard to talk. Multiple servers provided good service as would be expected at a fine dining restaurant that is at the high end of cost.

    Staff and maître de were extremely accommodating, for a very busy Christmas Eve, we were pleasantly surprised our table was ready on time. Food was served perfectly, the filet mignon prepared exactly as it should be. Overall very pleased, would certainly recommend and undoubtedly go back. For an Avenue where there is so much turnover of bars and restaurant, Prime obviously gets it right.

    We booked at Prime specially from London because they advertise Lobster or Stone Crab special on a wednesday.... We arrived at 8-20 for a 8-30 reservation to be told that it was a "lobster" night but that they had run out of lobsters!!! They made some ridiculous excuse about us not having specified that we wanted the "Lobster Special" when we booked and that they only catered for enough lobsters for those that had!!! Complete nonsense and no mention of such conditions on their web site.....We had to eat off of their normal menu which was expensive and very poor..

    I'm sure inside is lovely but when we go to Prime, we love to sit outside and take in all the sights on Atlantic Avenue. Tho we didn't have it this time, they offer a fantastic three course specials -$55 for 2 people. This time I had the seared scallops which were fantastic. Don't miss their signature dessert. A real bonus is that they accept reservations for 2, even committing for outside which is rare. They are all extremely friendly and welcome our tiny dog.

    Great Place to Celebrate Thanksgiving! Our group was looking for a quality, non-buffet restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner. We've dined here before, for lunch and dinner, but never on a holiday. We weren't disappointed. Our meal was excellent, portions were generous, and service was prompt & friendly. Every table was full and everyone seemed to be having a good time. We'll be back next year.

    Living in Delray, Atlantic Ave is the perfect dining strip. We chose Prime as it was one of the very few restaurants we hadn't dined at yet as we thought it was over priced. We decided to do a "fancy" night out and actually had a very reasonable priced evening. Our breakdown - 4 glasses of red wine, 2 vodka cocktails, an entree, salad and 12 ounce filet steak, 2 sides - LESS than $160! I'm not a very big eater, so between the entree and salad, sharing the steak with 2 sides was more than enough for us both! We took our time, our waiter Logan (from NH) was great. He wasn't trying to rush us out in hopes of flipping his table, or not attentive that or drinks were empty for any period of time. And, you just have to sit outside!

    Overall it was good. Food tasted good, just had some undercooked pasta. They brought bread with some dipping sides to start, we did not enjoy the sides but it could have just not been our taste. We ordered a bottle of wine, they were out if the $41 bottle and tried to upgrade us to a $58 bottle. Waitress was not very attentive to our table, and service was pretty slow. Not sure if they were just understaffed. It took almost 2 hours for single course party if 2. We would dine there again but will probably choose inside seating to see if the service is better.

    They advertised " ALL YOU CAN EAT STONE CRAB SPECIAL" we booked two different Wednesdays. The first time, they called at the last minute and said that they couldn't get enough Stone Crabs, but would substitute a lobster, some stone crabs and a filet mignon. Interestingly, there were around 15 people in the entire restaurant…so not enough stone crabs sounded 'fishy' to us.The food was good, so we were pretty satisfied, and were willing to try it again. 2nd time we were a large group. They again called at the last minute, and this time said that they couldn't get enough stone crabs but were substituting sweeter,'northern crabs' We didn't think these crabs were as good!

    The place is fancy and pricey but everything was delicious. There is fine print on the menu indicating that all beef dishes will have an additional $1.50 charge due to the increase in market price. I would have ordered the filet anyway, however why not just raise the price on the menu instead of misleading the customers? The filet was certainly delicious. The only real problem I had was being asked to wait at the bar for 15 minutes even though we had a reservation and the restaurant was half empty. Service was slow so maybe they were under staffed and rather you wait in the bar than at the table.

    Food excellent but for an upscale restaurant service was extremely slow and inattentive. Iced tea glass never refilled unless requested. Bread not served unless asked for and then an extremely long wait. We asked why and server said it was in the oven. When finally received bread was room temperature. We ordered salads to split which we told server and salads were served whole without a second plate. I think it should have been pre split. Maître de came over to see if all was ok and we expressed our concerns. They did offer us free deserts but by now we just opted to leave The food was good and nicely presented but we probably will not go back because of the poor service.

Porterhouse was relatively tasteless and very disappointing. Because the name said Prime, we thought meat would be "special", it was edible but not something I would come back for. Prices were reasonalble but even considering that, the steaks were not worth eating.

    Although all you can eat Stone Crabs was advertised, we got a call that day to tell us that they didn't get enough stone crabs..[Interesting since there were probably only 15 people in the restaurant - and we were a group of 6]... anyway, they offered to substitute one pound of stone crabs, a 1 1/'2 lb steamed lobster and a filet mignon, plus soup or salad and a side dish at the same price. We decided to keep the reservation and try it, and it worked out great! 5 of us took them up on their offer and the 6th ordered a la carte. Clearly it was too much food for us so we also had doggie bags to go. The stone crabs and lobster were great, we had mixed reviews on the filet. But overall it was a wonderful evening.

    My husband and I went to Prime to celebrate our anniversary. this was our second visit. The first time we went, the restaurant was crowded, the food was delicious, and the service was fabulous. This time was a Sunday night out of season, so the place was almost empty. We ordered salads, appetizers, and steaks. The food was delicious, but…I asked for lemon for my water three times before the waiter finally brought it. We had a great deal of trouble getting his attention all evening. There was no busboy, so the waiter was responsible for everything, which is surprising for a high end steak house. All in all, we will return there with the hope of improved service.

    We were there for the special $55, 3 course dinner & had to ask for the special menu. One person loved the filet mignon, the found the flavor of rosemary overwhelming. However, he thought the texture & quality of the steak was good. The ambiance was lovely, although we thought there would be live entertainment. That was a little disappointing. If not for the special, we would not go back; they are too pricey for our liking.
