    AtlAve
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    My best friend was visiting from out of town and I wanted to take her to a nice restaurant on Atlantic Ave! The title describes how well the night went. Food came out and appeared amazing! When there was a hair found in my food, that is when the night went downhill (and it was clearly not mine or my friends hair.) Completely lost my appetite and ruined the rest of the night. Waiter apologized and then proceeded to still have my meal on our bill! We asked to speak to the manager and he never came over to apologize or anything. While it was not our waiters fault, he did not know what to do when we kept asking for the manager and he did not come over to our table. Next time the chef needs to keep his hair out of the food!

    We were there on a Thursday night and were only the 3rd party seated. the restaurant was empty. The staff were noisy standing around the bar just talking and filling the hours. I was aprehensive about the food as I had read several negative reviews, but was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be very good. The sea bass was perfect - for that price it should be. We will return in a couple of weeks to see if they maintain the quality of the meal.

    We had been to this restaurant's Atlantic Ave location a number of times and decided to give it's new location a try. It's definitely been scaled back! My chicken parmiagina was dry and tough. Hard to cut with a sharp knife overcooked probably due to numerous re warms. Their ceasor salad was much tastier at their old establishment. In fairness my wife did enjoy her shrimp scampi which was loaded with shrimp. I also found the phone positioned up front without a hostess annoying with its loud ring and servers were responsible for taking the calls when they were able to get to the phone. not much ambiance there. The side street location is not good for attracting passerby's. I think this restaurant will be history in 6 months.

    Have seen this place lots of times but never been. Finally went and was not disappointed. Food was really good, service was great. Piano player was nice touch but the music between was pretty loud. This may be to drown out the outdoor club in back from their music. In any event, tried a few different things and it was very good. We split a salad which was actually a small portion relatively speaking but the meals were huge portions and very tasty. Will definitely be back. They had Swordfish I thought on the on-line menu but did not have it on the menu there. Did not try the steak but had seafood and pork chop and both were good. calamari appetizer was very good as well.

    The twin lobster special was great. Lobsters were made to perfection, sweet and moist. Unfortunately the t- bone streak was a bit overcooked and extremely salty. Service was wonderful--wait staff were most attentive. Bring a fur coat as there was an overabundance of air conditioning that made it quite uncomfortable and apparently was not being regulated well.

    At 6PM on an August Wednesday night, PRIME we had our choice of table and got excellent service. The lighting was subdued and we could see the entertainment mural and hear ourselves talk as well as the Sinatra & friends recorded music until 7PM, when a singer - pianist began with similar music. On the $55 Dinner For Two special we ordered one Filet Mignon and one Tilapia Stuffed Crab special. The Tilapia was very tasty while its roasted potatoes and ear of corn were okay. The Filet was too salty to eat so we requested one without salt and it was good. The Chocolate Bread Pudding was good though a little dry and the raspberry Sorbet was good. By 7PM a few more tables were occupied and we enjoyed the music.

    Prime was a great spot for a special occasion! The meals: Delmonico was cooked to perfection. The side Truffled Mac and cheese was delicious. The Sea Bass with a side of potatoes was tasty and cooked presented beautifully. The strip steak and it's side was cooked perfectly, the fourth entree was from their Italian menu Chicken Parmesanwas came with a Caesar salad and dessert was enjoyed as well. We had appetizers of stuffed mushrooms which were presented beautifully and tasted wonderful. The meal together with a alcoholic beverage and gratuity was about $265 which makes this restaurant one for special occasions.

    I had my wedding reception at Primes original location back in December and it was spectacular! I don't know what went wrong here. Since the move the menu looks the same, but the food is NOT the same. The service was so sub par and it seemed that we were getting a bit of an attitude from the wait staff. The only saving grace is the ambiance as it's reminiscent of the golden times of Sinatra. Overall I'm disappointed.

    This was our first time at Prime. We drove past it the first time and had to turn back. When we got there we were seated promptly, and since it was early, we were the only ones in the dining room. Our food came out hot and delicious. After we were there about 45 minutes, another couple came and sat hear us. We heard them ask for the special menu. Since we didn't know about this menu, we asked why we hadn't been offered it and were told that they are told not to offer it with the regular menu, and it's only given to people who know about it and ask for it. I told them that new diners who had never been there before would not know about this 2 for $55.00 menu unless they were told about it when they came in.

    We were there at 8:15 on a Friday night and we were the only 2 at the bar. Restaurant had 1 other couple having dessert. The night club outside was getting busy but the concept of fine dining and the night club scene obviously didn't work. Food was good, but not incredible. Veal chop was cooked perfectly but very small. Delray was packed and this was empty.......although pretty inside, no fun

    The biggest fault is not with the food , service or ambiance. The lot to park in is right next door and it is a flat $10.00. All the fine steakhouses Boca Raton only a few miles away all have valet parking. Delray Beach is not a place to go if you don't want to pay $5 to $10 for parking My dish, short ribs was excellent, however, my wife who had sword fish said it was just OK, much better at other restaurants .There were only 4 other people in the restaurant so it is difficult to judge noise of service if busy.

    We were welcomed back with open arms by Andrei the maître d'. It is simply breathtaking from the crystal chandeliers, baby grand piano, private wine room seating to the outdoor tropical gardens where we enjoyed our Mother’s Day dinner. The ambiance was nothing short of the old Prime. The rack of lamb was suburb and the service was impeccable. Cooked to perfection. I couldn't have asked for a better day.

    I first heard of prime moving to their new locations right off the ave by a friend. I was told it was so beautiful inside and it's a must try, so we did. I happened to make a reservation for two on a Wednesday for Lobster Madness. When I arrived, I was taken away by how beautiful the restaurant looked inside. We were sat promptly and our server Glenn greeted us right away. We than told him we wanted to do the lobster special, he said you made a wonderful choice. When the food arrived the lobsters were so fresh, meaty, and tender. We couldn't believe how good they tasted and for the price, unbeatable!!! Overall the experience was amazing and the service was so attentive. We will be definitely visiting Prime again and recommending it to all

    Front and back doors wide open on an 80 plus day. You walk in and the heat just hits you. I asked about shutting the door and they said they couldnt. We went for happy hour before dinner. Barmaid was charging $20 for two drinks which I questioned. She then lowered it to $16. Food was so so. There was a table near us which I believe was owners family. The young child had the mother's cellphone flashlight flashing it all over the dining room which was annoying as it hits you in the eye.

    Very good food and extremely poor customer relations. We will never go back. A very nice experience was ruined at the end. The manager refused to allow us to use our Charity Dine gift Certificate. He said the computer wouldn't allow it. That is nonsense. He could over-ride the computer but chose not to. Now there is no way we would ever go back or recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Brought wrong wine first followed by correct bottle which wine list said Napa & was actually Sonoma so incorrect wine list. We had to ask for bread which the waiter said he forgot. Food was very average nothing special & was our anniversary so they did provide a bread pudding at no charge that was ok. The only good part was they sat us outside on private deck with great view of the city people watching was great. I would not go back to this one too many nice restaurants in the area.
