The staff was very helpful in changing our reservation to more people, that was very cool considering the restaurant was busy. Everything was very delicious from appetizers - we had calamari steaks, oysters on the half and shrimp cocktails - to the steaks our table had. I tried both the 1855 rib eye as well as the Snake River Wagyu rib eye as well....both were amazing. Highly recommend Island Prime

The portions are a bit small for the price but very delicious. The bread is delicious. The wedge salad had balsamic vinegar drizzled on which isn't necessary. The view at night is stunning and the staff is attentive without being intrusive. A very nice place for a special evening.

We had reservations at 7:30. We were told a couple of parties were ahead of us which defeats the purpose of a reservation. We were sat down and I’ll admit the service was great. The waiter was on top of his game and the bus girl was attentive. Their staff was flawless. The food though, was rough. $70 steak was like chewing taffy. It just never stops. The restaurant just felt dated. We will definitely avoid this restaurant for now on.

Better than food than what I expected. Often times these Harborside restaurants live on the view and reputation. The fare was very well done if not overly creative. I loved the view of skyline. Service was prompt and friendly. Price was $90/person.

It was my husband’s birthday. Their meals seemed large so my husband and I split one order of salad and entree and they did not have any issues with that. They even split it for us on separate plates.

Great food, great service from Enrique. The popovers were so good, the table had about 1 and a half each and skipped appetizers. Went straight into the entrees and sides and we had enough to bring leftovers home. My parents loved it here and we would come again.

The food speaks for itself. Absolutely delicious from the complimentary bread to the amazing desert we had at the end of our meal. The staff were extremely attentive and focused on providing the very best service! Every restaurant should aspire to this level. The view was the cherry on top for a perfect evening and dining experience. I will definitely be back whenever I’m in town!
