Our server in the bar before dinner was not friendly or very accommodating to say the least. Our server at dinner was very good and attentive. However out of the 11 entrees we ordered 5 were way below par for a $$ restaurant . Most all of the meat dishes were over- cooked. I personally would probably not recommend this restaurant to friends.

I have been here more times than I can count. The food and service and ambiance keep bringing me back. This is the first time I have not seen a familiar server which was sad. My server on this particular evening was not the usual professional I am accustomed to. Won't stop me from returning and giving them another chance. The menu is more than worth the chance!

We met another couple at Portland Prime for a double-date & night out at Portland Prime recently. We always enjoy the great atmosphere, the wonderfully attentive service, the live music and the overall "good vibe" of Portland Prime. Owner Frank Taylor is a good friend and he's never too busy to greet us and catch up, whenever we visit the restaurant. And the FOOD is always OUTSTANDING! Having so many great choices on the menu ensures there's something for everyone. Preparation and presentation are first class. We love Portland Prime! (THANKS FRANK!)

I have been back in Portland for four years, and this was the very BEST meal out I have had in those four years! We will be back.Our server was also excellent.
It is frosting on the cake that the restaurant is black owned!

Nice job on traditional Thanksgiving dinner. All the usual trimmings, and well done across the board without being edgy. The service was a bit spotty, though, and the room got a bit noisy.

Thanksgiving dinner, and though the restaurant was not full, our party of 6 was seated next to the kitchen. Very noisy. Food was ok. Ample portion for the $39 traditional turkey dinner, but the prime rib looked scrawny, and the steak knives were not sharp enough to slice through some of the gristle. Spuds were oversalted. Service was efficient, as it always is in the dining room (not so much the bar) and not rushed. There's a reason they don't rush you...

They charged $14.25 for a Manhattan cocktail at the bar. No drinkable bottled wines under $40. This place is ok, but I repeatedly walk out feeling I've been gouged. We like to drink, but simply can't afford it here. And it's just not polished enough to justify those El Gaucho-like prices. Last time.

My husband and myself decided to give this place a try for our 24th wedding anniversary. Based on the previous reviews (for the bar) we had high expectations. That was quickly deflated. We each ordered a salad. Him the house salad and myself the Caesar. The salads were large in size, but the dressing on each could have come from a bottle. It did not have the house made flavor that is eluded to in the description.

Our main dish was the well marbled porterhouse. That is a nice way of saying excessively fatty steak. The steak was thin, unseasoned, and well done ( I ordered medium). I feel if you are paying $45.00 for a dinner you should never be in a situation where you have to send it back. They should know the difference between Medium and well done. They did offer to refire, but we had to wait another 20 minutes. We also had to hear about the new crew in the back and how no one likes them. NOT MY PROBLEM!

After all of that we decided to not chance dessert and walked across the street for a doughnut. Who knew a doughnut would be the highlight of the evening.

We paid $116.00 for dinner that quite frankly was the quality of a chain steak house. I guess for my 25th I am headed to Outback.

Good was not good Prime had zero flavor and lots of fat. Chicken was way too heavily salted and the cocktails contained very little liquor .
Would not recommend will not return and the place is vastly over priced.

Nice ambience, but the food was subpar. Over cooked steak and lamb chops. Just not that good!

They were out of prime rib at 8pm on a Saturday night and the server said they are typically out it sells out pretty fast. Server also forgot to put in my side order 😩 I left very disappointed.
