Diner Reviews
  • "Perhaps I made the mistake of not ordering steak. I had the short-rib pappardelle pasta dish. It was flavorful, but very rich, and I, therefore, couldn't finish half of it. My dining partner had the bone-in veal, which was excellent. The ambiance was so-so. At 7:30 on a Saturday the restaurant was 3/4 empty. Oyster Bar next door was hopping. We considered scrapping Prime in favor of dining there. Our female server was nice, but didn't know the menu at all. She stumbled through the specials, making several errors. Perhaps she was new. I ordered a mixed drink which was terrible. She cheerfully took it off the bill. I don't think we'll be back. There are far better options for steak in Providence...as well as service and ambiance."

  • "The food was delicious, the restaurant was beautiful. The fact that there was only one other table with people was a little concerning for us, but the food was great and service just as good."

  • "Got to eat here unexpectedly after thinking I had made a reservation at 10 Prime steak and sushi. When we showed up at the wrong place I checked my confirmation and realized Providence Prime is not the same place. Lol Embarassing. However we had time to still make our reservation. Loved it, much quieter than the first place and the food was excellent as was the service. Started by sharing a dozen oysters followed by fork tender fillet mignon and the best creme brulee ever. I am gluten free so this was perfect. The creme brulee had real vanilla beans. Embarrased by the mix up but loved this one and will go back. The hostess at the first place saiid we weren't the first to confuse the 2."

  • "We have been to the sister restaurant, Providence Oyster Bar, many times, but hadn't been to the Prime in a few years. It didn't disappoint, and we love that they offer happy hour specials that include raw oysters, too! Service was perfect - attentive, but non-intrusive, and providing a good suggestion when asked."

  • "Brought my husband for his birthday dinner, as he loves steak and king crab and this is the one place that has that option year round. Our waitress was attentive and helpful, and made great recommendations (I was torn between a steak dish or short ribs with pasta and she pointed out that in the Hill if you want pasta you go to a different place). I had the bone-in filet mignon. My husband got the twice baked potato for a side and that was the star of the evening. We started with our favorite blue point oysters (which are also his absolute favorite variety) and steak tartare. Like I said, everything was delicious, and service was awesome but what sticks out to memory was the twice baked potato- go there and get that."

  • "The meals were outstanding. I am not going to lie it was expensive so ask for a price before you make your choice. The steaks outrageous. It is a place to dine and enjoy your company, food and drink. Not a place to run in and out of. It was a very quiet night on 3-5-14, our friends birthday but even though it was all about her , it was all about all of us. Wonderful"

  • "Delicious food, extremely friendly and knowledgable server, overall very pleasant and enjoyable experience. My steak was delicious and those I was with all received their steak perfect as ordered. The sides were fantastic. Started with the garbage salad which is a mix of lots of different things, although the name was off putting it was pretty good although seemed to have some items that didn't vibe with each other, but overall a solid choice. Also started with calamari for the table which was very good. Overall a great dining experience, great steaks and staff, very nice steakhouse."

  • "We went during restaurant week. We all had the filet mignon and it was amazing. It also has the best tiramusu I ever had. However, our server rushed us. I was still eating when he put the dessert down and while eating it he put the check down without asking if we would like coffee or tea. We would return again but would request a different waiter."

  • "Prime is definitely on the top of our great restaurants list! We would love to go more often, but it is a finer restaurant, we usually go on special occasions, or when we have a groupon. The staff is always fantastic and fun, and the steak is the best we have had. I love going to the hill, it is always a great experience. Thanks, Cindy Cooke"

  • "While I love Providence Prime, it is just ok for Valentines Day. The tables were extremely close together - more so than usual. You could barely squeeze between the tables to get sit. The waitstaff was completely overwhelmed. The Junior waitstaff did not pour water for us until we asked and we also had to ask for it to be refilled multiple times. Our waitress forgot to put our entrees in and our appetizers came out at different times - about 15 minutes between each one being served. All of the surrounding tables were given chocolate covered strawberries when they received their check, our table did not. Once the check was dropped we never saw our server again. All in all the food was just ok; too many reservations available for Vday"

  • "I've been here several times now and each time is consistent and delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant and it has been on my top 5 list for a couple of years now. Nice red wine selection and they really know how to cook a steak THE WAY YOU ORDER IT! 5 out of 5 for me every time!"

  • "For the amount of money that is charged there isnt much atmosphere or ambiance. The main courses however were perfect! The creamed spinach was bland however. The waiter's assistant however started clearing and people were still eating. I thought that was done in poor taste and it was unacceptable. I tipped Michael generously as he was a great server."

George, our waiter, was right on top of everything and made some fantastic suggestions. We stuck with the Prix Fixe for the night, but will happily order from the main menu when we return."

  • "The food, service, and ambience are all very good, but nothing was off the charts great about Providence Prime, especially for the price. You won't be disappointed as long as you don't listen to the hype about this place. If you like a good steakhouse, by all means give it a try. It's your typical small, (intimate?) Federal Hill boutique type restaurant, so make sure to make a reservation, especially on a weekend night. We'll go back, at some point, but it won't be in the regular rotation as it's a little pricey and more a special occasion type of place for my wallet."

  • "Ordered Caprese salad and the veal Milanese. Caprese: Mozzarella was rather dry, tomatoes of the super market variety = tasteless, basil substituted with lettuce. All doused in a sticky and overpowering balsamic dressing. Veal Milanese (on the bone): Chunk of fatty meat, thick breading, over-fried and soaked in oil. Parmesan for the arugula/tomato salad was substituted with chunks of mozzarella. Coming from NYC, I expected a large piece of super thin, lean veal, lightly breaded and flash fried, with fresh baby arugula, heirloom tomatoes and freshly shaved parmesan. This restaurant wouldn't survive NYC for a day. One star for food quality, but friendly waiter and decor allows for two overall."

  • "Although our waitress was fantastic, it seemed that she was the only wait staff in the restaurant. From the moment we walked in the atmosphere was disorganized and rushed. The food was above average but not good enough to make me overlook the disorganized service. There are plenty of choices in Providence at this price point, and I won't be back."
