Food & value excellent. Nice service albeit no one overly friendly considering the restaurant was lightly populated & we required minimum attention. Strange thing was the 2 Hosts greeted us, and they were delightful, wished Happy Birthday but no one of the wait staff even said Happy B-Day. Humbly said, when a restaurant knows it's a special occasion, the server either mentions 'Greetings' or offers a cup of coffee or tea for the birthday guest! Suggest you not ask if there is a special occasion going on if the restaurant doesn't really care about the patron which seems that the employees of Prism don't care about that aspect. Sidebar here: I am a high level gambler for Jack casino. Guess that doesn't matter either. Go figure. It was disappointing though. More

This was the first time I used Opentable. It was easy to use. I used the special request section to ask for a table in the courtyard. Our table was ready when we got there. My only compliant was the outside heating unit was too hot. We asked them to turn it down. They said they did, but it continued to be too het. I will use Opentable again though! More

We had a wonderful time celebrating the birthday of two daughters. We were wonderfully surprised to not only have a round table with a view but also our own room for this special occasion. The Christmas music was in "the back round" giving us the ability to hear each other, yet we had fun guessing the songs and getting "into" the beginning of the holiday season. Our waiter was great! Everyone was very friendly! We will definitely be back for special occasions! More
