  • Our reservations for my wife's
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/11/2008
    Our reservations for my wife's birthday dinner were for 9:00. We got seated @ 9:25 and, after placing our orders, the waiter was unattentive for the next hour. We ran out of bread, water and wine and still had not received our appetizers. After bringing this up to him and his manager, the appetizers finally got to our table with some lame explanation about our sushi order taking a lot of time. At 11:00, after seeing we were becoming agitated about the lack of service/food, the manager assured us our entrees would be out in "two minutes". Dinner was finally served at 11:25 as the rest of the staff was already setting tables for the next day. It was our worst dining experience for a $350 meal and we will never recommend or return.

    Excellent place for people watching. Several people commented on the state of the economy when 50 and 60 ft yachts were waiting to tie up at the dock and the front lot was lined with Bentleys, Mercedes, a Lotus, and a Maserati waiting for the valet. The bars, both indoor and outdoor were packed with trendy women looking for that wealthy catch.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/28/2008
    My only complaint regarding this dining experience would be in regards to the bench seat that was used. We were seated with my back to the hanging glass wall. The bench was noticeably a few inches lower than the chair opposite creating a feeling of always looking up. I also heard that same issue commented on by both parties that were later seated on both my right and left. Otherwise the experience was wonderful. I was surprised at the casual nature of the dress by the diners at such a fine establishment - perhaps that is more common these days, but I can't bring myself to wear denim jeans and a sloppy t-shirt to such a fine establishment - but that mode of dress was not uncommon.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    This restaurant is probably one the most beautiful restaurants I've ever seen. The inside is elegant and the outdoor dining during the summer months is reason enough to go even if the food wasn't very good. It is situated right on the water with an incredible view along with all the boats that are docked. Add to the incredible ambiance of this place the food is just as good. We had a very friendly and knowledgeable waiter that was attentive without being annoying. He had a party of about 12 people next to us and still attended to our party of 2 with equal enthusiasm. We felt like we were on a Caribean island.

He was charming, articulate, well-versed in food preparation and wine selection. We are telling all of our friends about Prime and we will definitely return again and again and again. One more thing worth mentioning: the bathrooms...they were a unique experience in themselves....

  • Beautiful view of Huntington
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/20/2008
    Beautiful view of Huntington Harbor for both outside and inside dining. Come by water and dock your boat (as long as it's a head turner). The restaurant itself is superbly designed. And oh yes, the food, which is very good and enjoyable, but not quite five stars. I had one of their signature entrees, the 38oz ribeye, served on the bone and looking something like what Fred Flintstone must have had for diner in his day. The steak was great, but I didn't care much for the three special sauses it was served with. Also, I found the selection of (optional) side dishes somewhat uninspiring; I ordered the mushrooms, and didn't think it was worth an additional $8 charge. Service was excellent and just a hair under a five star rating.

They were extremely backed up and for a steakhouse of this caliber i was extremely disappointed with the service. The kitched was very slow and they said it was backed up, this should not happen when you are a top notch steakhouse. I will probably never go back, i was looking forward to a great day.

    The restaurant was stunning as was the view and the food was fine - nothing spectacular but still very good - service was fine but a bit on the slow side. However, we had asked in our open table reservation (in comments section) for a high chair. When we got to the restaurant they said they don't provide high chairs. They definitely should have called and told us that as I have 20-month old and would have gone elsewhere for Father's Day. I would definitely go back but only with adults as this is not a kid-friendly restaurant at all.

    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

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.

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!
