Diner Reviews
  • "Food was very good, wine list was expansive, ambience was perfect for date night."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Service really does matter! The seamless service really did increase my dinner experience on August 19th, as I went to S Prime to celebrate my Anniversary with my husband. The steak was good, so was my creamed spinach, mashed potatoes (garlic), and dessert. The bread would've been better if it was warm. I also want to add that I go out to eat a lot and many times my great meal is interrupted by sucky service. The complete opposite was true for S Prime. Wilson was amazing! So attentive, but not over-bearing ensuring that my husband and I were given the appropriate attention, but still have privacy as we sat together in a cozy booth."

  • "I had not heard about this place until I purchased a Groupon. I live a few stops away at 30th Avenue, a major avenue with a ton of businesses. This place is tucked away on a small street near Kaufman Astoria studios, and it actually feels a bit like an escape. The actual decor of the restaurant was lovely: LARGE (perfect for groups), well-kept, ample seating. It was a bit too dark for my tastes, though. The food... OMG THE FOOD WAS AWESOME. We started out with the tartare trio (beef, scallop, tuna). All of the tartares were awesome but the tuna was the best. I ordered the Cajun steak for my entree with a baked potato on the side. It was all so incredibly flavorful. This is now one of my favorite places, and well worth the cost."

  • "Absolutely one of the best meals I've had in years. Steak was perfect; seafood special was outstanding! I mean... totally outstanding! Everyone is friendly and very competent. Drinks at the bar set the right tone which carried through the rest of the night. They didn't rush us and the evening was very enjoyable. Of course being a premium steakhouse, you pay premium prices; however, their happy hour (which we caught at the bar before dinner) is surprisingly economical and we will come back for bar food (which looked delicious) and happy hour drinks to try something different the next time."

  • "My husband and I shared the Trio of Tartare, Roasted Bone Marrow, S Prime Signature steak 28 oz 60 day dry aged rib eye, a side of vegetable risotto and their trio creme brulee. Everything was so delicious. Their steak was so tender and juicy that you don't need a knife to cut and it was prepared the right temperature."

  • "Happy hour great. Dinner was excellent. You must try the stuffed lobster. Absolutely fantastic!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Another dinner... another wonderful experience... I keep finding myself going here from once a month to almost weekly with friends... The GM Ike is a true gentlemen who along with Chef Joel and his staff provide such a hospitable atmosphere... making reservations for next week as we speak..."

  • "Most people go to a steakhouse for a "fancy" meal and this place is fine for that, but Id like to address the hardcore aged steak fans. Ive been to a lot of the steakhouses in NYC and I always look for an aged rib steak. If this is your fav steak, you should try the 60-day aged steak at SPrime, it may or may not become your new favorite, but it is definitely different enough that it is worth trying. I liked it a lot."

  • "Delicious mouth watering tender filet mignon, creamy savory garlic mash potatoes. Excellent wine list and amazing service"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I have been eating at Prime once a month for the past year. Love the food and restaurant. BUT I have to be honest. The service was poor and when I tasted my bottle of wine I was shocked that it was like vinegar. I did not say anything until after 5 minutes because I never returned a bottle of wine once it was open. When I told the waiter he brought the host over and I explained what happened he sayes to me well you had your chance to tell the waiter and since you said it was fine I have to charge you for the bottle. I was shocked and told him I am so disappointed. It ruined our meal. We even ordered another bottle for more then the first bottle of wine."

  • "Food as amazing. Service after big table went down and was unable to get check for almost 20 min."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "The reviews from others visitors helped me select this restaurant for a very special occasion. The entire experience was amazing, decor, service, food, the menu was created with good sense of humor, drinks. The stake was delicious!!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "We purchased a Groupon for S Prime. It was a great deal you pay $50.00 for $100.00 off your bill. It was totally worth it. The service was great! Everyone was so friendly. The food was delicious! I went with my fiance it was very romantic. They also have a nice bar with great wines. I can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The service was very good and the appetizer was excellent. The steak were burned from the outside although we ordered them both medium rare. Looks like it was sitting under the burner for quite a while before it was served to us. Overall is was ok but I have had better. I would recommend other steakhouse before I mention this one."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Great feel. Great service. The lobster Mac is phenomenal. A bit pricey on the steaks and didn't feel it was the "greatest steak ever" which you would expect from their "signature" steak. A nice meal."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The ambience was nice and quite - the service was great and very attentive. Our family went there for Fathers Day dinner - we ordered the White wine Mussel -which was not washed thoroughly, it contained sand and rocks in them - do not order them unless you want sand and ocean taste in your mouth. We ordered the Filet Milon and Rib Eyes - Very Delicious....side dishes were Brussel spouts, cream corn, cream spinach, lobster mac n cheese. Overall experience was good."

  • "Nice to have found this gem by chance. Very late decision to have a bday dinner for a friend and it was 11:00pm. on a Saturday night. S Prime had dinner reservations until 11:45pm. It made me skeptical if we would receive the day's "remaining food".... But it was delighted that EVERYTHING was extremely fresh and well prepared; even my cocktail had freshly pureed raspberries. I loved the ambiance of the venue and was impressed with the wine list. 2 thumbs up for S Prime."

  • "If your looking for a great steak at a reasonable price and not interested in traveling into the city, then S Prime is perfect! "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I know, it doesn't sound right - the best steak in NYC is in Astoria? But it is. I've been all over the city - Homestead, Keen's, Lugar - you name it. S. Prime takes the crown. I highly recommend their porterhouse for 2 (bring a friend). Chef Joel Reiss sources the best meat and adds a unique seasoning blend that's very simple and highly effective. I challenge you to try this steak and compare it to the other top spots in the city. I simply have not had its equal. Drinks, sides and seafood are all top notch. Solid oysters too - everything is fresh. It's a huge space and while a bit "generic nice steakhouse" it's clean and comfortable. This is not a "cool retro" or old school feeling steakhouse, nor is it a club feeling like STK."

  • "Food is decent but way too expensive. Ambiance was nice but too dark. Steakhouses shouldn't be so dark. Service was good. The highlight of the meal was the pork belly appetizer."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "I was very disappointed with the quality of the food. I ordered a filet medium and it was just under well-done. I noticed that my steak was plated after been cooked and it was room temperature when I took the first bite. Clear this restaurant is not a true steakhouse. My husband ordered the 3lb Lobster special and it was not fresh. We ordered the Lobster Mac and cheese side dish and was also highly disappointed. The dish was runny and very bland. We ordered a simple side that you would think would be impossible to mess up, sautéed spinach, but leave it to S Prime to do what it appears they do best, not cook well. The dish was over cooked and oily... Horrible. On the brighter side, our waitress was very friendly and eager to assist us."

  • "Good place away from Manhattan to take a date for a good dinner"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "My husband and I decided to do something different and leave Manhattan to eat. S Prime has valet parking. As we arrived two smiling valets came out to greet us. As we entered we were greeted by a hostess and the manager. The restaurant is very beautiful. It has two stories and the lights are dim and provides a romantic feel. The buffalo Mozzarella was outstanding as an appetizer. All and all a wonderful meal with outstanding food with outstanding service. The only drawback is that all the wines by the glass are very expensive. They should include some moderately priced glasses i.e. 12.00 dollars and up for a decent Cabernet."

  • "Do not think just go! Overall super dinning experience. Looking forward to our next visit. Have to say the tuna tartar was my favorite."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I have to say, being in the neighborhood it just slipped my mind but so glad I made it there. S Prime is definitely one of the most amazing steakhouses I have been to. Food was a plus, service a plus, ambiance a plus and whether you are with a group or on a date it is absolutely perfect. Definitely recommend to all"

  • "I REGRETTED THAT I PICKED THIS PLACE. IT WAS MY SON'S & MY COUSIN'S BIRTHDAY. I ESPECIALLY REQUESTED A NICE TABLE FOR 4 PEOPLE. IT WAS A THURSDAY NIGHT AND THE PLACE WAS EMPTY. LITERATELY TOTAL 5-6 TABLES. WHEN I SAW OUR TABLE I TURNED AND ASKED THE HOSTESS ARE YOU SERIOUS? RIGHT AWAY I ASKED FOR A BIGGER TABLE. WHAT SHE SHOWED ME WAS A JOKE BUT WE SET ANYWAY. ALL NIGHT I DIDN'T LIKE ANYTHING ABOUT THE SERVICE, SHE WAS HORRIBLE. THE FOOD WAS OK NOT GREAT FOR SURE. AND THE SERVER MADE FEW MISTAKES WITH OUR ORDERS. SHE APOLOGIZED MANY TIME FOR IT, BUT!!! THE WORSE WAS, THERE WAS A BIG TABLE RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE RESTAURANT WITH ALL GUYS...THEY VERY LOUD, I MEAN VERY INAPPROPRIATELY LOUD. THEY WERE DISTURBING MY SPECIAL TIME WITH FAMILY."

  • "My husband and I love Sprime. Their steak it the best we've ever had. All the food is incredible. It did a little bit of time before we got water. After that the service was excellent."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Went to S-Prime for Valentine's Day.. The pre-fixe menu was amazing and the price wasn't outrageous. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the 28 day aged rib eye that cut like butter. They were cooked perfectly. They gave us a complimentary glass of Moscato and a complimentary lobster bisque taster. The Bourbon Maple Pecan Pie a la mode was to die for. Will definitely go back more than once."

  • "We had dinner here on Saturday night. My husband and I have a favorite steakhouse in the city, but decided to try S Prime as it is close to home. We had a wonderful meal, and great service. Our waiter was great and did not over sell us when we asked his opinion on having two apps and salads. He was honest and we appreciated that..... The porter house was to die for! We will be back!"

  • "The service was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. The food was a bit pricey for this neighborhood. I would go back and I'd definitely recommend it."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The food and service was quite good, but I feel that the menu was a bit overpriced for a steakhouse in Queens. I tried their signature aged ribeye ($65) and it was cooked perfectly, but I have to say I've had better cuts of steak in Manhattan for less money. I also would have liked some warm fresh-baked bread like every other premium steakhouse in NYC offers, but I came for the steak and left the restaurant pleasantly full and satisfied. The open-glass wine room in the rear of the dining area was a nice touch and really adds to the decor. All-in-all, I had a great experience and would rate S Prime as the best steakhouse in Queens, but due to price I would still prefer one of the top rated restaurants in Manhattan for special occasions."

  • "This place is simply Amazing!!! It's a couple blocks away from my apartment and I like to go here anytime I have family or friends in from out of town. Much easier than going into Manhattan but the quality of food and service will rival any Manhattan steakhouse. One of my favorite local places."
