    The sun was shining and Primbar has a large outdoor patio that is perfect for lunch. The food was very good (especially the Asian Salad with Seared Tuna) but the service was lacking. The restaurant was NOT busy at all for such a beautiful day so getting mediocre service was a real bummer.

    I reserved a table for my book club, since this places brunch was rate highly online. The server was nice and attentive, the food was good and (being sunday) there was plenty of football. However, the music level was very high for a brunch/lunch time. I've been here in the evenings before and the music is usually loud so people can dance. But I feel that this time during the day, the music should be turned down a bit so people can enjoy their meals with conversation...

    Primebar was a perfect pick to celebrate friends' engagement. I made a reservation on Open Table and asked to have a "congratulations" sign made for the table in the "special request" box. I wasn't sure if it would happen, but it did and it was fantastic! The food was great. The drinks are overpriced, but worth it depending on the occasion. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a VERY loud intoxicated group. It took away from the experience, but I don't think that's a frequent occurrence.

    First time going for Brunch. Large patio with multiple tables and chairs at bar height. Going around or before noon is best if you want a table. This patio eventually was packed. Nice energetic music was playing as you watched nice cars and good looking people pass by. The mimosas are cheap but are also cheaply tasting. It's not that they put too much juice, it's like the champagne had less than 5%AbV. Or so it tasted like. The menu looks tasty but the food was just 'okay.' Nothing to special or memorable. I'd still go again because I liked the set up and look of the restaurant. The vibe and people watching is what will draw me back. The food is just Eh tho.

    The Prime Bar has very modern style design and setup. The waitress was great and very helpful. The food was just ok and the management wasn't very helpful or pleasant with customer concerns. I was excited about going to place because of the reviews but it is nothing to be excited about. If you want a good mimosa go here, otherwise go somewhere else.

    I was hoping this restaurant would live up to the quality of their sister restaurant Park Tavern. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre and service was worse. It server continually refused to give us water after sitting with empty glasses for about 45 min. This was also on a Monday night when we were one of 4 tables in the restaurant. She then came up to us and explained she had been cut and wanted us to payout. After working in the service industry awhile ago, I normally would have no problem but when you offer such horrible service I think it takes a lot of audacity to ask me to payout so you have more of an excuse not to pay attention to me

    I had heard a lot about the brunch food at Prime Bar. All in all, I was underwhelmed. The food was edible but was nothing special in my opinion. I had the Bananas Foster French toast and couldn't even tell that it was supposed to taste like bananas foster. My partner had cinnamon roll pancakes and they were nothing special. The mimosas, on the other hand, were exceptional. They are $8/person and are bottomless. They are strong though so don't drink them too fast. All in all, I'll go back to Prime Bar for the drinks, the food is just "there."

    Me and a group of co workers decided we would catch a bar after work to just have some drinks and unwind. The parking is horrible and dreadfully far if you dont want to pay for valet, so we coughed up the $7 bucks to cancel out that far walk. The PrimeBar was great as soon as you walked it it looked like a great place party, very nice seating and ambience was awesome. The waiter was nice but she didnt know much so I am guessing she was new, they all looked a little clueless, we told her our food was over cooked( calamari) and she never did anything about it. Matter of fact we told her twice after we paid for everything, she never returned.The best part is the outside to me. In the fall the outside sitting would be fantastic.

    horrible, disappointing and embarrassing. I had only been to primebar for a few happy hours and always enjoyed them. I made reservations to bring a few friends who have never visited Primebar expecting to have a fun night out. HOWEVER I WAS SOOOO WRONG! from the rude hostess to the non existant server. what a mess. we were there for 2 1/2 hours we had to flag several people down to place a drink order and then flag someone down to place a food order. the food never arrived! the first waitress was so rude because she had 3 tables.. 3! get out of the business. thank goodness for Candy, she was the only helpful, friendly staff member. I am still in shock at the horrible experience. I was considering Primebar for a corporate event

    Horrible service for so-so food. Waitress disappeared before taking any order - including drinks. After 30 minutes, we had to ask the hostess to find her. No drink refills unless requested, oh wait, we had to ask for something other than water to drink. Waitress forgot to put in to-go order. Food wasn't prepared as requested and was marginal, at best.
