    If your looking for a hot Long Island crowd in a beautifully appointed space with amazing views Prime is your spot. If you think your going to get all that and an amazing meal its probably not going to happen. My wife and I regularly treat ourselves to all the amazing steakhouses NY and Long Island have to offer and are very familiar with high quality meats. We went with the porterhouse with a side of creamed spinach and mac and cheese. The sub par quality steak came out overcooked in a skillet with no au jus and the sides were so-so. Bottom line, if your an occasional steak eater the quality of Prime may be good enough and the scene will probably make up for it. If your a hardcore meat-eater Like I am Prime may fall short.

    Their brunch menu includes many different, interesting and delicious options. I was thrilled with the selection where you could get a side of bruleed grapefruit with your entree choice😃. We were seated by a window overlooking the water, beautiful. Our brunch was preceded by a basket of delectable baked treats (coffee cake and chocolate bread), and our server was kind enough to make us an iced coffee upon request❤️.

    My last experience here was not pleasant but this time they redeemed themselves. We sat in the wine room which is so pretty and the food was excellent. I had the cioppino which was the best I ever had and the kale salad was yummy too. The only negative was that we went on a Friday night when the weather was just perfect and there was no parking. We had to find a spot on the street somewhere and walk. They have a shuttle that runs from the town, but that's even more of an inconvenience.

    We have been going to Prime for years and it was terrible. $300 meal and we barely ate any of it. We are upset that we spent our anniversary there but we have spent every other anniversary there. I will not go back on a weekend it is so crowded and the meal suffered because of it.

    I have been to Prime on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed the experience but my recent visit was much better. It certainly helped that the weather was great, it was crowded, but not too crowded, and I was with someone who really appreciated the Prime experience. The food and service were excellent and my waiter was fun and personable rather than stiff and corporate. Don't miss Prime in the summer; it is an excellent time to enjoy all it has to offer.

    The service should be impeccable for the amount of money they charge. the waiter was not attentive to problems with 2 main courses that came out. Actually, he was argumentative. We asked for the steak to be medium, it came out very rare. The waiter said, " that was there medium". Also, we had an allergy issue. We were told no onions in the dish. The dish came out with onions. The manager apologized and took it away but didn't ask to get something else or take it off the bill. 1 epi pen later... The crab cakes were disgusting. they weren't lump crab, they were deep fried with a thick heavy coating and seemed frozen. they were mushy and full of mayo. It's a factory with a great view. Extremely disappointing if you're looking for fine dining!

    I started off my meal with the Pineapple mojito. Phenomenal. I originally wanted a regular mojito, but my server suggested the pineapple version, and I am so glad he did. We shares two appetizers: bruschetta and gnocchi. Both very tasty. I ordered lamb chops, and my boyfriend ordered the bison. Ordered medium-well, the lamb chops were exquisite!!! Falling off the bone, the lamb chops were cooked to perfection with a simple, and delectable season of what just seemed like butter and salt. Absolutely delicious. Mac and cheese, our side dish that we shared, was also delicious. Lastly, our chocolate cake with coffee ice cream ended our dinner on a high note. Yummy!

    I was able to make a last minute reservation and couldn't have been happier with the friendliness of the hostess, the greeters when you walk in, and the spot-on service throughout the entire meal. Our only complaint was that the appetizers portions were very small for the price, but other than that, everything was great. Happy we booked dinner here!

    Prime is one of our favorite restaurants on Long Island, we always celebrate our 'special occasion' their. Food and Service is always five stars. However, they are never on time when they tell you how long you have to wait for a table. There is nothing worst then telling me I have a 15 minute wait for a table and not get seated for 30 minutes or longer.

    My husband and I found ourselves without the kids for the day, so we decided to find a nice outdoor spot to eat dinner. Prime was the perfect place! We sat at an outside table which overlooked the water. The view cannot be beat! Our waiter was more than attentive and very friendly, making sure to fill our water glasses often because it was a rather hot evening. The beef Wellington and the surf and turf were cooked to perfection. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough!

    But for the fact it is on the water, not sure if I would spend the high prices for the food here. It's extremely expensive, and I say that as an employed professional, meaning even someone who can afford it feels it's over the top! I come here for the fabulous outdoor dining and the less expensive menu that has a couple of things that are reasonable. Highly recommend the lobster roll and the burger is a good value and tasty. I don't come here for the dinners because there are options elsewhere in the town that are just as good if not better quality and with more reasonable prices. But it's great for sitting outside on the water for a light lunch and a drink.

    They never honor their reservations, so be prepared to wait. The food is mediocre at best and the sushi rice sucks. WE ordered the seafood plateau and the king crab was spongy and the oysters were filthy. They charged me 7 dollars for their own "filtered" water when we ordered a bottle of flat h20. Every table got their "filtered" water. Whatever....I got scammed. Table service is good. Outdoor Bar service is horrible. They can be rude and overworked on the deck. Only go for the outdoor scene in the summerr and outdoor dining.

    We dined last Saturday evening and celebrated both a wedding anniversary and birthday. Although we decided not to wait to eat out on the patio, we were accommodated by seating right by the window overlooking the harbor which turned out to be a better decision. The noise level in the restaurant allowed us to enjoy the conversation with the other couple celebrating with us. The staff was excellent and helpful and we enjoyed a fabulous meal and dessert. Everything we ate was delicious from the sushi, crab cake, salads and the main courses (Porterhouse and Ribeye). The staff was extremely kind and recognized my birthday with a single candle with my dessert while also giving me a gift card for a future visit to the restaurant.

Have eaten at the Bohlsen Groups other venues and Tellers a least knows what good bread is. Needless to say I will still come here for the view and to eat out on the lower deck only.

The food was very good, but not outstanding and memorable. It's the atmosphere and view that you will find yourself paying for. Whether you sit outside or inside, you will still get a view of the harbor.

Rob our waiter took special care of my elderly parents to make them feel special which was much appreciated. The food perfect from the Star Sushi to watermelon salad (only wish there was more on the plate but minor detail) to the perfectly prepared Salmon (very large serving).

    Prime is a great spot for all sorts of special occasions. The views over looking Huntington harbor are fantastic, especially on bright sunny days. The food, wait service, sommelier, ambiance, etc. are all excellent. The outdoor seating areas are nice but can be a bit "busy" at times, especially on weekends and in the later afternoons. Indoor dining in the main dinning area is typically quieter and quite enjoyable.
