  • "I had the scallops and the other party had the lamb. Both were excellent. Perfect portion sizes. Nice Wine... Could offer more beer on draft."

  • "We always sit at the cook line bar. We are both cooks and love to watch the artists cook this wonderful food over a wood fire and a wood fired oven."

  • "I have been going to Primo Grill for over 10 years and am never disappointed. it is equally good for parties of 12 as for intimate dinners. Our grandchildren love to eat here, although it i not a family restaurant. The owner/chef is talented. His specials are truly special. A few nights ago I had a halibut dish that was incredibly delicious."

  • "Copper River Salmon was available and deliciously prepared. Our table had 4 different entrees and all were savory and expertly prepared. There service is quick and friendly. A great place for family friends or that special evening. Our favorite restaurant in Tacoma-by far."

  • "This place was brand new for my wife and me. We loved it! We really felt the food was exceptional and done at a level that was well worthy of any fine dining restaurant. The atmosphere and decor was simple but had a relaxed elegant feel to it--it definitely had a romance to it. The server was personable, friendly, attentive and everything you would want a host to be. Also, the wine list had a great selection of wines you wouldn't just see anywhere. Primo Grill is truly a place you would go back to over and over again!"

  • "Primo Grill is our favorite quality dining experience in Tacoma. We go for the extremely high quality food mainly, but the reputation for buying from local farmers and then serving them and caring for the community is a very close second for our reason for returning when we have dining funds."

  • "Primo is a great restaurant. The food is always prepared with a flair and the flavors are absolutely wonderful. We had copper river salmon - the salmon was cooked perfectly and the risotto was to die for! I always love Primo!"

  • "This restaurant was very nice. Although near UPS, it is priced above the college crowd, and so we were able to get in at the last minute graduation weekend. Service was good as was the food. Noise level was tolerable."

  • "I took my date for prom here, not knowing at all what the place even looked like and just going off online reviews. I was thoroughly amazed at the overall ambience and location of the restaurant. It is in a nice quiet part of Tacoma that isn't too busy. I was seated right away and taken care. After putting my order in I got my food within 10-15 minutes, it was amazing! The food was so amazing although somewhat pricy ($15 min. dishes) the price was well worth it. Overall great experience.

  • "We brunched at Primo Grill on Mothers' Day and enjoyed an excellent meal, choosing among breakfast items and lunch/dinner items as each person preferred. For my 13yo daughter they made a cheese pizza that wasn't on the menu. Everyone enjoyed their selections and the service was accommodating and timely. The noise level is a little high for my taste, but fellow diners were more to blame than the establishment (no loud music, just loud talkers). This restaurant is moving to a new location in the near future so we look forward to continuing to visit regularly!"

  • "Always a pleasure to eat here. They never disappoint, and the calamari appetizer is to die for! I have never had a bad meal or bad service. Bryce was our server, and his enthusiasm was infectious. A lovely evening."

  • "Primo Grill is a nice place -- friendly, warm, and good service. However, it's not a value. Very pricey for what you get. $9 for a plate of 9 spears of grilled asparagus is too much!"

  • "This place serves amazing food. But it's really really small servings, and pretty damn pricey. "

  • "Salmon was over cooked, specials weren't very special and the bread was burnt. Disappointing evening, for sure."

  • "We tried the happy hour supper options at Primo. This consists of a good list of small plates, all priced at $5. The quality is excellent, and the choices cover meat and vegetarian dishes & small pizzas. Primo's is a short drive from The Grand Cinema in Tacoma. An early supper here, followed by a film at the Grand, makes a great outing."

  • "Finally got in for the fresh Halibut; was excellent. The fish was perfectly prepared and the veggies that went with it were great. Service was excellent as usual. A great place to go with friends or for special occasion. We had a good meal and a good time."
