  • "This was the second time I went to Prime and the first was only 3 days after they opened. I really enjoy the atmosphere and the food, but both times we have had an issue with how the food was cooked. The first time I went my scallops were under cooked and it took a while to get it out so my friends were done with their meals when mine came out. The second time the person I was with ordered a steak medium well and it came out rare. Once it was brought back it was excellent but a steak house should know how to cook it correctly. Even though I have had a couple of issues I love the food on the menu since it is not the run of the mill and there sides are great! Also the service is excellent and so are the special martinis!"

  • "My husband and I are always looking for a good local restaurant. So glad we found Teresa's. We had a fabulous time right from the start. The inside was decorated nicely(very cozy and romantic), beautiful bar area. Service was great this night. I started with the house salad and have to say it was the best house salad I've ever had at a restaurant. The dressing was so tasty and the presentation was lovely. My husbands spinach salad was almost as good! I had the 8 oz filet cooked to perfect order. It was very tender and full of flavor. Hubby got the 24oz porter house and basically finished every bite. Sides(which are included) were plentiful and delicious. No desserts for us, too stuffed :-). Can't wait to come back!"

  • "The entire dining experience, from the check-in to bar to a great meal was outstanding! Owner Nick Yebba and Chef Jason came by the table to say hello and to make sure that everything was just perfect. The steaks are superb! My wife had the sea bass and that was as good as the steak! Why go to Boston for the hastle of a long drive, valet parking expense and to pay higher dinner prices when you can enjoy a premium steakhouse in North Reading! It's well worth the trip and dining experience!"

  • "We were told to pick 2 sides to go with the steak from a list. We asked if the macarroni with lobster also came with the picks, the waitress said it did. When we got the bill, there was an additional charge of $4.00 on each steak order and realized that this was not actually a side that would come with the order, but had an additional charge. When we asked if it came with it, it should be understood that it is a question if there is no additional charge. The wait staff is very nice and professional, but they need to be trained on the menu costs. This is a vey expensive restaurant and costing mistakes like this should not happen. I did not bother to dispute this since we were in a hurry to go to an appointment, so I payed the extra $8.00."

  • "Our service was excellent. Food was good but not outstanding, the shrimp cocktail was a little bland but my steak was done perfectly which doesn't happen often. Unique beer offerings, and good sized wine list. I love having a city-quality restaurant in the suburbs and easy to get to."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We sat down for dinner but no one seemed to know who our server was. After a long wait, a waiter just came over and said "I'm not sure who your server is but I'll help you.." He was friendly enough but not very good. He brought the wrong wine (which took forever..) and when the food finally came, they forgot who's was who's. That's not a big deal but all the little things add up over the course of the night. We ordered some dessert to take home and they messed up the carry-out bag. (Given the night, we probably should have checked but just assumed we'd received the right stuff..) The food was very good - not outstanding, given the price tag - but the service was really lacking."

  • "WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A GREAT STEAKHOUSE LOCALLY SO WE WOULD NOT HAVE TO INCLUDE THE TRIP IN AND OUT OF BOSTON INTO THE EVENING...AND WE FOUND ONE. TERESA'S PRIME WAS WONDERFUL FROM ENTRANCE TO EXIT. THE STAFF IS WARM AND ATTENTIVE, THE STEAKS ARE AN EXCELLENT GRADE OF MEAT AND THE UNIQUE EXTRA IS THAT THE TWO SIDES THAT YOU CHOOSE ARE PLACED ALONGSIDE YOUR ENTREE ...KEEPING THE TABLE CLEAR OF EXTRA DISHES AND PROVIDING JUST ENOUGH TO COMPLETE THE STEAK. GREAT DRINKS AND EXTENSIVE WINE LIST AS WOULD BE EXPECTED IN AN UPSCALE STEAKHOUSE. WE PLAN TO MAKE RETURNS TO TERESA'S A REGULAR NIGHT OUT TO LOOK FORWARD TO"

  • "Waiter was extremely attentive when we first arrived. Our res were for 6, so at that hour it wasn't crowded - YET. As the night went on by 7:30=8:00 we couldn't even find him to get coffee, and later had to wait for the check as well. Think that they need a bigger waitstaff."

  • "Fabulous restaurant with great food and service!!!!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The steaks are top notch, no issues at all with the protein, and setting themselves aside from other Boston steakhouses you get to choose two sides to pair with your entree instead of having to buy them a la carte. I don't want to knock the sides that much as they were included in the price of the steaks, but if we had had to pay for them separately we would have been largely unhappy and some would have been sent back. Service was also a miss. In charging steakhouse prices and serving steakhouse-grade meats, service was no better than what you'd get at Chili's or any other casual chain. Teresa's Prime is still fairly new so hopefully the service gets ironed out, I feel like the staff just needs be more focused and run around a lot less."

  • "Our server Matt was extremely good and took great care of us. He was there when you needed him and ready to answer any and all questions we had concerning the menu. The décor and atmosphere was very nice and upscale making the environment very enjoyable. The owner (Nick) was walking the floor making sure everyone was happy and made my family and I feel at home. Over all a great place."

  • "Wanted steak cooked medium rare, came out blue. Wife wanted medium came out rare. Knew a couple of other couples at the restaurant and they had the same problem. Very good quality of food and meat, just need to invest in a thermometer"

  • "There are 2 Theresa's, one in Middleton and this one, called Theresa's Prime in North Reading, was very nice. Food was good, as was the service. We'll go back, especially since it's near where we live."

  • "This was our first time at the restaurant and we live in NH. The restaurant is set nicely near a golf course and has a neighborhood feel to it. The noise level was actually less than moderate and perfect for a night out or romantic evening. The food was excellent, well above most nicer restaurants. From cocktail to appetizer to desert there was nothing short of great. In addition, their wine list had much in common with my wine cellar. To top it off, the owner came around twice to see how our experience was. There are few restaurants of this caliber that create such an experience."

  • "Excellent steaks, very quick service. French onion soup excellent. Side dishes were good-- but not as good as the other items. Atmosphere is very good. Wait staff was quick and attentive. This was our first visit, but we definitely plan to be back very soon."

  • "We came to Theresa's Prime on the recommendation of a friend. We had eaten at Theresa's Italian and wasn't all that impressed with the ambiance. We we were very pleasantly surprised. The ambiance was great, it was a Thursday night so it might have been quieter than on a weekend. Our steaks and the halibut were perfectly prepared. The service was fantastic and we were given a complementary creme brulet because we couldn't decide and thought we were too full. We are very excited to have such a nice restaurant just 4 miles from home. The only negative would be the spinach salad, the dressing could have been tastier. All in all it was a fantastic experience and we will be back and will tell our friends."

  • "The food, service and atmosphere was outstanding on Saturday night. We both had the filet mignon and it was incredible. The service was impeccable - waiter was knowledgeable, fun and made the experience worth wanting to go back. It was an incredible dinner."

  • "We now have some very fine places here in the wilderness. Teresa's Prime is a first rate steak house with some well prepeard steaks in a variety of cuts, including my favorite hanger steak. The service was impecable. Our waitress was attentive but not hovering. the steaks were prepared just as ordered. One of upir party had scallops which were just as good. a good selection of sides and an extensive and broad selection of wines and beers. We split an appetizer which was also a nicely done combination of tastes."

  • "The ambience was great loved the booth and the bar. Food was good but my sea bass was cooked to death and had to request something else because the ran out of sea bass. Loved my fondue app and drinks. Service was fair, needs improvement to compare to other high end steakhouses. Water glasses empty and taking plates and drinks while still have food and using. Felt the wait staff could tell you more about the menu and drinks. It was okay experience for suburb restaurant, would go back to sit at the bar."

  • "Went with two other couples for dinner. We put our order in for drinks. It took quite a while to get them, and when we did, three out of the six drinks were wrong. Sliced figs were missing from the spinach salad which were listed as an ingredient. Two of us ordered baked potatoes with our dinner. His came with a tray including butter, sour cream, bacon, cheeses and scallions. Mine came with nothing. We were never asked if we wanted anything on our potatoes, so we both thought it was strange when he got all the goodies on the tray. Our steaks were delicious; prices were high. We had to try to get the servers' attention for more water, drinks, etc. If you are charging these prices, your wait staff should be trained better."

  • "Went with another couple, place was crowded and seemed understaffed. For the money we expected faster service. Waited a long time for drinks on every round. Glasses were empty for 10-15 minutes before waitress noticed, then took another 10 minutes to be made. Waitress was pleasant but too busy to provide service at the proper level. Meal was good"
