Closer to 3.5. We come here a couple times a year. We find it hit or miss. Service was great as always. The appetizer, sides,bread and dessert were great. My wifes fish was well prepared. My steak was well cooked but woefully under seasoned. Me adding salt after its cooked just isn't the same. When I spend$56 on a steak l expect lots of flavor. In all, very good not great, $190 should be great. Especially the steak.

Always an excellent time. We arrived early and enjoyed cocktails at the bar. The bartenders were very friendly despite being busy. There was a gentleman playing guitar and singing who was exceptionally good. Table was ready on time, server was from Germany and was very attentive and friendly. Overall an excellent experience

The venue is beautiful. Service was ok. We were one of the first tables seated but it was 25 minutes before a drink order was taken let alone appetizers. I was considering getting up to find someone to take our order. Most of the food was good. The lobster mac and cheese was disappointing. Thin liquidy cheese sauce ...my father had linguine and clams and said he had better clams at Delmonico's. For the prices, I expected the food to be amazing. We are interested in coming back in the warmer months for maybe just drinks and appetizers on the patio...

Went with another couple. His steak was over cooked. He ordered medium and it was well done. She ordered sea bass. It certainly wasn’t fresh. It had a fishy smell and was over cooked. My wife and I both had filet mignon which was properly cooked. Service was excellent.

We were there for Saratoga Restaurant Week and were very impressed with the food that was offered. Typically restaurant week is where local restaurants will have 3-course meals at a significantly reduced "Restaurant Week" rate that is also used by the other participating restaurants.
Overall I would say that this was the best Restaurant Week dinner that I ever had in Saratoga (Prime salad + short rib with mashed potatoes + caramel cream dessert).
The best part of Prime is dinning on the outdoor patio overlooking the Saratoga National Golf Course. Being "Spring" in upstate NY it was still too cold for the porch area to be opened but in the Summer it is definitely the best ambience for lunch or dinner in all of Saratoga.

When booking the Prime at Saratoga, my intention was to have a nice dinner to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. I even included a note when securing my reservation on Opentable. My wife and I have had excellent experiences when celebrating anniversaries in the past and truly looked forward to it.

Upon arrival, we were shocked to find the parking lot so congested that we couldn’t even drive to the Valet. We ended up parking nearly a 1/2 mile away along their drive. I truly wish I was exaggerating. Once inside, I mentioned the parking situation which was poorly received by the staff and simply shrugged off. We were informed that there was a special event being hosted at the country club. There was no mention of my notes within the reservation or even an interest in if we were there for a special occasion.

We were seated in a very quiet dining area. There were maybe 5 other parties in the large room. I simply can not knock service as our waiter was attentive and professional. We stared with the surf and turf sushi roll which was the highlight of the dinner. The Cocktails were also very good. The main course was the recommended Cowboy steak which was not cooked to medium as it was still raw and needed to be sent back. Finally, we ordered the Creme Brûlée which was burnt but covered with whipped cream.

My wife and I do not patronize such restaurants unless it is a truly special occasion. I feel that the meal and experience didn’t come close to the cost. I will not be returning to the Prime at Saratoga, and I simply can not recommend it to anyone else. This was the low point in our otherwise enjoyable trip to Saratoga Springs.

The brunch options were extensive and there was something for everyone. However, the hot food on the buffet was not particularly hot. In fact, the pasta was cold by the time I got back to the table. Salads, on the other hand, were EXCELLENT!

Enjoyed the Sunday jazz brunch. Food was well seasoned and taste was great. Omelette station was great. Mojito was perfectly made. Only a couple minor, minor issues: 1. The BBQ salmon was a bit on the dry side. 2. The pancakes would be better if fluffier. 3. It would be great to have chicken or turkey sausage. Would definitely go again.

My party and I especially appreciated the lower level of noise. The dining room was full, but we had no problem carrying on our conversation. Too many restaurants these days are acoustically designed to appear crowded based on the noise level. Not pleasant. This venue was just right. We could hear the music and each other, without shouting.

For the cost of the meal, I was very disappointed. We were seated right next to the kitchen even though the hostess knew that it was a special occasion. It took a total of 3 hours for us to have our meal. The seafood tower was quite pricy even though the items were for the most part pre-frozen and certainly tasted like it. Major dissapointment.

I and my party throughly enjoyed ourselves. But I was overcharged for my daughters meal. She's 11 and they charged me the adult price which isn't applicable until age 13. Which made her meal almost triple the price. Unfortunately I didn't notice until I arrived home and I live an hour from the restaurant.
