    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    My wife had dinner to celebrate our anniversary this past weekend. The restaurant was recommened by a colleague. While her Veal Chop and my Filet were oustanding, the service was below average to poor. Our server indicated that my wife's drink could not be made at the "main" bar but was available in the bar directly below us on the patio, and thus could not be served at the table. We said ok. During dinner, the wait staff did not bring out wine until the end of dinner. While they offered to comp. the wine, the dinner was done. We said ok. Finally, we waited for 10 minute for our coffee but alas it did not arrive. If you are able to get by the poor service, especially when it is busy, he food is oustanding. KK

    We had a reservation for 915 and were not seated until almost 1030. The hostess was completely rude and acted as if we were bothering her. I understand they are a busy restaurant, but they shouldn't take online reservations if they can't accommodate everyone. We didn't finish our dinner until after midnight. It then took the valets 25 minutes to get our car, as there was no order to their system and people were runnning around shoving tickets at them. We left there very unhappy, even though the food was excellent.

    Great restaurant although my table request when making the reservation and then at confirmation was completely disregarded. We were actually seated at a table that was the complete opposite of my request-which was a special occasion as I had told all of the hosts. Otherwise we had a very nice time and the food was good. I felt the wine list, especially by the glass and half bottles, is lacking due to their emphasis on "wine vault" assets. The waitstaff was very kind and hardworking, the room is beautiful with great views and ambience heightened by music that makes it fun.

    At the upper echelon of NY dining. Best ambiance and views of any LI restaurant. Excellent food, only complaint is that every time I go I wonder if the waiters have too many tables or if it is the bar that is overworked as I find myself waiting too long to get my first drink and refills, however they were timely with the entrees and apps. The sushi is fresh and inventive and competes with or tops any Japanese restaurant in the area.

    This is the third time we've eaten at Prime. The noise has become intolerable! Although the new chef is worthy and the decor is very nice, we will not be returning to this restaurant because of the bawdy atmosphere perpetrated by the ill mannered clientele. Our guests, a plastic surgeon and his wife, agreed. Go across the street to "Aix en Provence" a more civilized way to spend an evening.

Also I told my waitress that I was algergic to parsely, when the food came there was parsely on it. I had to wait another 20 minutes for a new plate. It is little things like that, that make you not want to go back.

    love this place, and they accomodate large groups, but the noise level of some of the younger ones, was unbearable. I didn't even want coffee, I wanted out. Food is excellent, great choices and service is always good. Dislike when patrons go out for a smoke and stand by the door as you enter or leave and the smoke is too overbearing! a lot of these restaurants should have the hostess if possible go to some tables, that are so loud, and ask to lower the volume!

    Overall very good, However, 2 complaints - A server knocked over my wine glass which spilled on my coat - They gave me a new drink, however, the waitress indicated that she would inform a manager and no manager ever came over - Should have at least offered a free dessert or something. The second complaint, is that their wine selection could be more extensive. My husband was disappointed that there was only one Cabernet selection, and this is all he drinks. Still, would go back and give this restaurant another try.

    Prime had come recommended to me and I was not disappointed. Our reservation was ready open arrival where we had the choice of inside out outdoor dining. I would recommend the outdoor, beautiful viewand alittle quiteter. We were a party of 6 and were taken to a table that fit 6 perfectly. Our family is irked by tables of 6 that are really table for 4 or 5, that was a plus in our column. The service was excellent our waiter was very knowledge about the menu; an excellent upseller as well as he got us to got for the bottle instead of wine by the glass. I had astar roll as my appetizer and had the NY strip as my entree, would recommend both. I would also recommend the lobster bisque and the veal both were outstanding. I will defiently be back.

    As you can see, our experience at Prime on Mother's Day was just that--absolutely PRIME!!! From the moment we walked in and saw the decor, the bar, the open kitchen, the outside dining, the fireplaces inside and out, and the view of the water, we knew we were in for a very special experience--the food, staff and service then made it phenomenal. Every course was a revelation--do not miss the ethereal gnocchis--they are so light that they could float off the plate. We can't wait to go back to enjoy more of what Prime has to offer and will recommend it to everyone. Every course was a revelation. Thank you Open Table for offering this amazing restaurant on your site--it is truly what Open Table is all about.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 5/11/2008
    We enjoyed Mother's Day dinner there (party of seven). However, my mother's filet mignon was under-cooked (rare to medium rare instead of Medium, as ordered). She did send it back, but it seems they had to re-do the entire dish. I think she would have been happy to enjoy the poached lobster and potatoes while they re-fired the filet, rather than sit without anything while other's ate. And in the end, the newly cooked filet came back rare to medium rare anyway! Sometimes when you try too hard, you can fall short. I suggest in the future that you ask the customer if they want an entirely new meal (which takes longer), or just more fire on the meat. With that said, we do enjoy frequenting this restaurant and have found it a pleasant dining exp

    The service was completely lousy and messed up our Mother's day. I filled out a advanced credit card authorization to treat my Aunt to Mother's Day, but at the end of the meal, they still brought the check. When i brought it to the waiter's attention, he wouldn't own up to it. Then when i spoke to the manager, he didn't own up to it either. Completely rude and ruined Mother's day. Telling everybody that the restuarant is horrible from now on. Big mistake for the restaurant considering that my Aunt's a business owner in town as well.

    This was my first time dining at Prime. I have to say the food at Prime is outstanding. I haven't enjoyed a meal like this one in a long time. However, we made 8:30 reservations on Open Table. At 9:00, we still were not seated. Spoke to hostess, who informed us our table would be available in 5 minutes. Another half hour later, we were told the previous party was just finishing their dessert. At this point, we spoke to whom we thought was a manager and he was able to get us seated within 10 minutes - turns out he was the owner. He was nice enough to buy appetizers, which were waiting at our table when we were seated. The wait for the main course was long also, but as I mentioned above - the food at Prime is phenomenal. I will go back.

    Experience was appalling. They obviously don't care about providing quality service at all. We were a party of six. My husband's $42 steak came out overcooked - when we sent it back they said it would only be a few minutes for a new one - 20 minutes later when it still hadn't come out - he approached the server and told her not to bother - he didn't want it anymore. Everyone else had finished eating and all the sides were cold by then. They brought it to him in a "to go bag". Instead of taking it off the check, which would have been the right thing to do, they sent over some extra desserts - none of which were remotely good. And how is dessert supposed to compensate for someone who didn't even eat dinner. Don't waste your money here.
