Diner Reviews
  • "We were traveling from Connecticut and was looking for a great steak dinner. This restaurant was wonderful. Quiet night, great food and good service. We would recommend this place to everyone!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Too dark inside and a bit too loud outside. Hard to find. It's above a loud pool bar."

  • "If you want a great steak on Key West, this is the place."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We had heard many things about this restaurant. We were not enthused. Sides were lacking. Steaks were so/so. Service with a bad attitude. Too many other places in KW. We found Strio House at the Reach superior."

  • "Food, service and atmosphere is fantastic at Prime. We eat here every time we come to Key West!"

  • "Prime Steakhouse once again presented a wonderful meal. We have eaten here many times and you can count on great service and excellent food every time. The steaks are perfect. The sides and salads are wonderful. If you are looking for a huge menu, don't come here but each and every item is cooked to perfection especially the steaks. We also enjoy eating at the bar sometimes for a more casual dine. The service is very attentive . We love to split the 10 oz filet and get salads and two sides including the wonderful truffle mac and cheese. Don't miss it."

    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "This is a classic type restaurant with great food, attentive service, quiet, dark calm ambience, all of which are rare finds in KW under one roof. Have been there several times before usually as a foursome, last night was a celebration with six and everything was handled nicely by very capable and friendly Olga. We will be back."

  • "escargot & lump crab vichyssoise soup - absolutely wonderful. steaks - excellent quality meat -- cooked to the correct "doneness", but served ice cold. we ordered 'rare', but it wasn't just cool in the center -- it was COLD all the way thru, the fat was rock-hard. french fries served lukewarm, VERY greasy, soggy. our hostess very nicely insisted on replacing them, but unfortunately didn't receive the 2nd batch until we were pretty much finished with dinner, and they were still very greasy and fairly soggy. key lime pie -- worst we've ever had way too expensive wonderful, really excellent service by all - lovely atmosphere -"

  • "One of our favorite restaurants in Key West, and by far our favorite steak restaurant in town. Excellent service! The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars on food is because I'd love to see them change up the menu a bit."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "My husband and I had a wonderful dinner. The food and wine were great. The filet was off the chart. Olga our server was very pleasant. If you are in Key West and ant a memberable dinner, don't miss prime."

  • "My boyfriend and I came here on a Friday night for a belated birthday dinner for myself and just a romantic date night experience and we were amazed by this beautiful restaurant! Everything we are we fell head over heels for and our server was the sweetest! The hostess was sweet as well and greeted us with a smile and escorted us to our table very quickly! Definitely coming back and was worth every penny, no doubt!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Sat at a table tucked into a romantic little alcove which made the dining experience even nicer. The Cesar salad was wonderful & my husband loved the Wedge he ordered. The bone-in filet was prepared perfectly and the Malbec recommended by our gracious server was the correct choice."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Meat was good ... we do not eat vegetable who were just edible ... wine was good ..."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "One of the best 24 oz. bone in rib eye steaks I have ever had at a restaurant. Seasoned and cooked to perfection (medium rare) Very tasty steak! A little noisy for my liking but I contribute it to a large party that was having a birthday dinner/party. I would not hesitate to go back to this restaurant next time I am in Key West"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "There is no doubt best meal we had in key west. We ordered the rib eye on the bone and a double lobster tails and my wife and I split it best turf and surf ever, and we live up in Boston Ma and there are a lot of great places to eat. Thank you Prime Steak House for making our anniversary so special."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Simply put, this food was a disappointment. Chewy lobster tail. Below par steak. Dried up, overbooked baked potato. I would not recommend to anyone who is a serious steak lover."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We went for my wife's birthday which is Dec 24th. I ordered the porterhouse steak and when it came out the manager said it wasn't big enough, so she had them bring out their Filet which was buttery soft and delicious! We were stuffed when we left."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Our group of five considered Prime one of the best finds of our trip to Key West. We all had the bone-in fillet and everyone was thrilled with their steaks. They were cooked and seasoned perfectly and nicely complemented with a whole roasted garlic and tasty wine sauce. All of the side dishes were perfect as well. My husband said his escargot appetizer was the best he ever had. Service was attentive and efficient. Thanks, Katie, for your recommendations."

  • "Even though West Marine built a store in front of their old entrance, Prime is as good as ever, just a little harder yo find."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "Food was good. Steaks. Asparagus was undercooked, raw really. Had to send it back but staff was gracious and attentive about it. Snapper was wonderfully presented. She crap soup was thick, tasty. If you want a dark, comfortable dining experience, old steak house 1980's upscale feel, it's lovely. Hard to find restaurant above Dante's. Gotta ask Dante's how to get up to prime steak. No ambience outdoors , but quiet and pleasant anyway."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We all had a steak and it was excellent, but it was truly all the appetizers ( she crab soup was to die for) and sides that we were most impressed with. Not a single complaint about anything. The wine was a great compliment to the meal and the service was outstanding. Can't wait to go back. I've been bragging to all the neighbors about it."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Somewhat difficult to find, but was worth it. Food and presentation were good. Waiter was awfully pushy for a restraunt the was less than half full."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Visited Prime for the Twins Birthday, one of them my wife. Large group of 11 and the food was outstanding, one of the best steaks I have had and I have been to all the "known" steak houses. Olga our servicer was very mindfull and we never felt rushed. Special request for birthday dessert was accommodated and enjoyed by all. Highly recommend Prime Steakhouse when in Key West and want to enjoy a fine dinner and great service. All enjoyed their meals and my son even got a take away of Mac and cheese. Thanks Prime for making this a special day even better."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "One of the best (if not the best) for steaks on the Island! Very friendly environment with very professional staff. Also try the whole snapper--it is amazing!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Was really looking forward to this dinner. Our table had two steaks - filet mignon - excellent, the other (NY Strip) - disappointing. Other meals good, but not exceptional. Wine list quite extensive. Service was very good, ambiance excellent but noise from bar next door annoying."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "We were given a very private, quiet table. The restaurant was nice and the atmosphere was very romantic. Surf and turf was great!"
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "Have been in Key West for every holiday except Thanksgiving. Decided to complete the cycle and then (after booking the room) where to eat on Thanksgiving. Keeping my fingers crossed hoping some of the better eateries in town would be open. Saw Prime was open and couldn't make my reservation fast enough. Although I hadn't been there in over a year, was counting on it being as good as I remember. Needless to say it was wonderful! Sat outside for the first time and wondered why I hadn't before. Our server was great. Recommend the She Crab soup and the Ribeye steak!! Truffled Mac and Gouda would have been one of the best Mac & Cheese dishes I ever tasted with just a little less truffle oil. Stay off Duval and definitely go to Prime Steakhouse"
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "We were very excited in anticipation of going to Prime. Service was poor. We asked for our veal chops medium well. My husband returned his becasue is was very rare. When they came back with a new one it was very tough and chewy. He gave me a taste and after chewing fo a few minutes I had to actually get rid of it. My veal chop had a lot of grissle. Not what we expected for the high prices. We like fine dining but this was very very disappointing."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "She crab soup was amazing! The mac and cheese spectacular! The pork was slightly dry but the sauce made up for it. The filet was good. Overall a good experience. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a "fine dining" experience."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "In fact, my entire family did. The steaks were perfectly cooked & seasoned. My daughter loved thechicken. It was my husband's birthday & he thoroughly enjoyed himself. The service was attentive without being intrusive. This is one place we will return to when back in Key West."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "For our first visit to Prime we were blown away. The bill was a little more than I expected, but worth every penny. Our meals were cooked to perfection and the staff was very accommodating. There was already a high chair waiting at the table for our baby so we didn't have to stand waiting. The restaurant was not loud at all so we could keep our conversation private. The waitress selected a great wine to compliment our meal. A great experience and we will definitely be coming back."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "2 of us in a party of 4 loved their steaks and 2 were disappointed. One of the steaks had to go back to the kitchen for additional grilling and the manager asked if they could butterfly it to cook it faster. This steak came back over done. The bone in rib eye I had was a little tough to have been prime and did not have an aged flavor that I would expect from a $48 steak. The Mac and cheeses was excellent. The waiter did not personalize the service and try to make us feel like he really cared that we were there. When you are paying over a hundred dollars per meal you expect the server to help make the experience memorable and it wasn't."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "Best steaks I've had in a while! Very nice upscale but not fancy (still KW!) excellent service. Everything was perfect."

  • "We had dinner there in Christmas Eve. The food and service was good. They didn't have a lot of specials to choose, I believe only one or two. I found the menu a little short on items and pricy. Overrall it was good."

  • "Outstanding food, cooked perfectly. As a local I would dine more often if less expensive."
