Prime 47 - Carmel
Excellent food but the loud, live music clashed with my expectations for a quiet luxurious dinner. Nonetheless once we adjusted our expectations we had an incredible meal with good service and flavorful food. Easily on par with the best downtown steakhouses, and superior to most.
28th Anniversary spent listening to loud music and a table of drunks yelling Opa throughout dinner. Every other table in the restaurant were complaining but nothing done.
Supposed to have two servers according to the first server. Saw 1the one at the beginning then he became overwhelmed with the other tables. Never saw the supposed 2nd server. Ran out of water, cocktails, bread and no one noticed. Bus Boys everywhere but not willing or allowed to get water, bread, wine or cocktails. Have been to Prime47 multiple times. Not even close to the experience of the past.
Tried for 10 minutes to order bottle of wine but no one around. Finally just happy to get a glass of wine 5 minutes after my steak arrived. This is a steak house right? I was afraid to ask for a bottle at that point ... figured I would be done eating before it arrived.
New management possibly? Now worth the $250 I spent for two dinners when I let them know it was our 28th Anniversary in advance. Expected a relaxing dinner in an environment that speaks to the amount you pay ... felt more like being at BW3’s during playoffs.
My wife and I Celebrated out 19th Anniversary at Prime 47. We don't live in the area and was visiting from Michigan. This was out first time at Prime 47. It was so fantastic. We did not order from the menu, we told them what we wanted and they put together an outstanding 5 course meal for us. What great service. After we ate, we went to the bar to have an after dinner drink. Much to our surprise, a one man band was playing. We danced and listened to great music. I wish we had a Prime 47 in Michigan. Great job to the staff/chef/bartenders and so on. Thank you for making this evening one to remember.
We went here for our anniversary and sat outside. Our server was great and so was the food. This is not s place we would go unless it was for a special occasion.
The restaurant was loud. The light over our table was burned out so it was very dark. Tables were so close to there that staff was continually bumping my chair as they moved around the room. Steak was excellent. Mashed potatoes were good. Asparagus was too salty. Broccoli was undercooked (even for al dente) and completely unseasoned.
We went for Mother’s Day we have always had wonderful good and service. Yesterday was a disaster. One person in our party ordered her steak totally plain. That meant no salt no pepper or any other seasoning. She was very specific. The server repeated what she wanted but when it came out it had both salt and pepper on it. It was sent back and replaced. Another person ordered shrimp scampi. When it came out it was cold. They took it back and replaced it with a “ fresh dish”. It was hot but so overcooked that the noodles were gluey and the shrimp was tough as everything was over cooked. The manager comped the scampi meal. On top of that no one came back to ask if we wanted coffee or desert and we had to ask for our bill. What a disappointment for a special occasion
Always wonderful dining experience Good service.
Overpriced. Not worth the money or the wait. Service was ok but nothing special.
Food, service, wine were all impeccable. Great venue for our Mother's Day celebration. Thank you
Too large, too busy, loaded with children. This may have been the wrong time to visit (Mother’s).
It took some time to get seated even though we had reservations. It’s understandable considering it was Mother’s Day. The food wasn’t hot, nor was it a great selection. We only saw our waiter once, so we only got one glass of water to drink for the entire meal. It seemed the bigger tables got more attention over the smaller tables (ours being a party of 3). I guess I expected more being such an expensive brunch. Desserts were mediocre. Also, what’s the point of telling open table it’s your birthday/Mother’s Day and Anniversary if the restaurant doesn’t look at it? My first experience could’ve been better there. I wasn’t wow’d by any means and i don’t think it was worth the price we paid for brunch at all. I’ve had better paying at a $27pp brunch.
We were really disappointed in our experience at Prime 47 - Carmel. It was Mother's Day and I'd noted in my reservation that we wanted to order off the main menu. We're not brunch people. When we arrived, we found that menu service was not available. Because we weren't going to be able to get in somewhere else at that point, we stayed and had the buffet. It was nothing special. And for the cost, as a general rule, they really ought to automatically replace your silverware between your main meal and dessert. While our server who brought drinks and shrimp cocktail was friendly and she tried, it just wasn't the Mother's Day I wanted my mom to have.
We attended 12:30 brunch on Mother’s Day, since we are ‘regulars’ at Prime we assumed it would be fantastic. Upon arriving we were seated immediately, as always everyone was and continued to be congenial. ALL of the food was literally ice cold from the over cooked eggs Benedict to the prime rib, the offerings were near empty when anyone in our party went for food, lastly the desserts were actually frozen...all of them.
Loving P-47 means we’ve come to expect YOUR usual high standards, Mother’s Day was definitely not what we’ve come to know and love. My family was less than impressed with my choice of brunches for this celebration.
Dined here for Mother's Day Brunch. It was a buffet which is what we were looking for. Upon arrival, I noticed the line for the buffet was HUGE. As I stood there waiting for our table to be ready, I noticed there was only one (1) buffet line and 90% of the items were on one (1) table. We were finally sat and offered coffee and then got up and waited in the HUGE line. Finally got to the food. There was no system to the offerings. First item was bacon. Then potatoes. Eggs were at the end. No bagels. No toast. Sausage was awful. They had a carving station with roast beef and the pieces were well done so unable to eat that. Fruit was behind us so if you wanted fruit, you had to circle back and walk in between others trying to get their food. Returned to the table but had to fight through the people waiting in line and waiting for a table. Very disorganized. Coffee was cold. Was able to ask for more. Still cold. Most certainly could not go back for seconds since the line was HUGE. At the end, our server asked us if we wanted an omelet or shrimp cocktail. I asked if that was included in the price and he said yes. I then said had we known that, we would have made different choices. He said he was sorry. This might be a good place for dinner but for a special brunch? There are many others. Eddie Merlot's is also a steak place but does a fantastic job with their brunches. No wait. Very organized. Food is good and hot. We will not be going back to this place for brunch ever.
A short wait after dinner reservations were pushed back. Everything was great. Service, food, atmosphere. A great Andretti anniversary wine! Highly recommend
We had our daughter’s graduation dinner here. It was very busy, which is fine, but the noise level was so bad that we couldn’t even talk to each other without yelling.
We had some food issues as well. We had one steak that was really tough and another that was over cooked. Then we ordered cheesecake and it came out frozen. They did take the the cheesecake off of our bill and gave us a cookie dessert. Over all it was very disappointing! I doubt we’ll go back anytime soon. :-(
We went to Prime 47 to celebrate Mother’s Day. Everything was delicious from the apps to the soup to our entrees & sides to the (OMG) super cookie!!! We’ll be back.
I thought the place was really nice, but they need more staff to cover the service areas. We had to track down servers to get drink refills or order food. The place is nice, but be prepared to wait for everything. The cost is expensive for the food options offered especially if you are not ordering a steak or the special. Also, the website has vegetarian option, but no vegetarian plates. Overall I enjoyed my dining experience besides the waiting.
This was our first time at Prime 47. It was the perfect place to celebrate a birthday! The wait staff made us feel welcome and were very talkative and friendly. The food and drinks were amazing! I loved the personalized menu, complimentary champagne and dessert - it really made us feel special! Thank you for such a wonder experience!
Excellent food, we just so happened to have reservations the same night as "Prom Night" so the servers were quite busy and the orders took longer than normal. However, the food was excellent! Would have been a 5 star for service but the server really pushed us away from the wine we wanted to one he recommended, when we just wanted the wine we wanted. he did not seem to realize how pushy he was.
Regardless, an enjoyable evening with friends, wine and great food!
The service was terrible. We had to wait what I thought was too long between each serving.My wife's steak was under cooked. Then to top off the whole experience they charged me for a more expensive steak and also charged me extra for my drinks. The manager never came to the table too apologize.
Food was excellent
Waiter was friendly, attentive but not overly so . Food came as ordered and timely.
Steaks were all very good and prepared as requested. I thoroughly enjoyed the French Onion soup too.
As always...good food and great service.
Great night with family. Service was over the top. Food was some of the best in town!
Great for very special occasions. The calamari was very good! I enjoyed the grouper and the staff were very helpful. They even planned for our special occasion by printing our anniversary on our menus. It was a very special touch to our evening.
We had a wonderful 30th anniversary dinner! Delicious!
My wife and I had not been to Prime 47 because the reviews were not particularly good. We thought that we should give it try ourselves. Many of the reviews were spot on, food was good but overpriced and the service was poor. My wife and I enjoy dining at upscale places because the food is good and the service is great. There are may other options available that meet our expectations...……..Prime 47 is not one of those.
This must have been an off day. The service was good but the food was not very good, especially at those prices.
The filet was excellent. Service was spot on til the restaurant got busier than our desert and bill took a while. We ended up up being there over two hours, much longer than I expected. We were celebrating a birthday and they went above and beyond to make them feel special. Overall I was satisfied and plan to go back.
Always a great meal here! Never disappoints! The bar is fun and the service is great!
Olaf makes every occasion wonderful.
Room was extremely cold, uncomfortably so. Seating felt crowded in lower section. Attentive staff. Good food. Would not order the calamari again - weird taste. With the exception of the freezing temps and crowded feeling, it was a good dinner.
We have been to this Prime 47 location in the past and it has always been good. Went for Easter Brunch this year and it was terrible - all around; service, food, etc. It was so loud in there because they filled every available space, we could not even carry on a conversation. Our reservations were for 1:30 and we still had to wait about 15 minutes (just trying to get up to the Hostess stand to check in took 10 minutes). They were running out of food (shrimp, beef, eggs . . . ) and desserts were practically non-existent by the time we got to dessert. If you are going to take reservations and charge an exorbitant amount of money for a brunch, then you should have enough food (warm food) to serve everyone and not pack everyone in like sardines to make some extra money! We will not return to this restaurant.
Laura is amazing ... fun, efficient, always kind and never misses a beat!
We went for a Bday dinner. Service was excellent from Sean. Food was superior! Love the truffle fries and the hollandaise sauce in the asparagus as yummy. It’s a bit loud because by design so a little hard to hear with a big group conversation. Overall this is a great spot for excellent service and food. They also have free valet.
Fantastic experience for our anniversary. We arrived 20 minutes earlier than our reservation and we were seated immediately. The staff was wonderful, very attentive without interrupting us. Food was excellent and the complimentary glass of champagne (one for each of us) and dessert they surprised us with for celebrating our anniversary were extremely thoughtful touches. We will definitely be back and would recommend them even over Ruth's Chris.
We were there on date night and it started out really good. Not sure what happened but our waiter got behind ... forgot my drink waited for 20 minutes amongst other things. But the manager Issac was fantastic and saw to it that the rest of our experience was great. My husband loved his steak and said it was probably top 3 in his life which is saying something. My sea bass was a little heavy for such a delicate fish but still really tasty. But Isaac really redeemed the night. Interestingly enough the waiter never apologized but everyone else did. We would go back as Isaac was fantastic.
Great service, all food are good except the steak. Got the dry age KC steak, ask for medium, pittsburgh, it wasn't medium and wasn't pittsburgh, also had a odd taste, not that of others I have had. The wife got a steak as well, and she thought hers tasted odd as well. The manager came over and agreed with our observation and did everything he could to make it right, not charging for the steak. Everything except the steak was really good, but we came for a steak, that is why the 3 stars. It could have been an off day, or off steak. We will try them again in the future to see how they do.
We had a beautiful dinner and special attention. I requested a romantic table and it was given together with kindness and attention from our awesome server. The wine selections were beautiful and the food perfect. This is a wonderful restaurant in every way.
