    A/C was not working in the back room, our entire party was dripping sweat and the management did little to rectify the situation other than apologizing. Apps, dessert or partial dinner should have been comped to make good on the poor experience.

    Unfortunately, this is the second time I’ve made a reservation at this establishment and not been able to enjoy my meal there. I understand that a large party is more valuable to the manager than a party of three. However, we requested a table not near a friend of ours who was conducting a business meeting as it could have caused awkwardness. The waiter offered us a table in the back which was fine. After we were seated with menus the manager came over and said he’s very busy this evening and that we should move back to the front. I explained why we didn’t want to sit there and he reiterated that he has lots of reservations etc. My brother in law and husband and I agreed to leave. It was rude and uncalled for to move us. I would note that at the time only about one third of the tables were occupied and the back room was completely empty.

    We showed up to prime bistro for our 8:30 reservation. They asked us to wait behind the groups that have showed up Me: oh but we have a reservation Host: yeah but we try to accommodate everyone so thanks for your patience. Just wait behind these guys, since they got here before you Moral of the story: they know how to TAKE the reservation, but they don’t know how to HOLD the reservation. We were finally seated 40 minutes after our reservation in a makeshift table in the hallway between their two dining rooms. While the food is good, don’t bother making a reservation on open table, they don’t actually take them. Open table should eject them from their reservation system and if they don’t… and your still reading this, try Resy for actual reservations at a restaurant that understands how to hold a reservation.

    Pepper crusted filet steak very tough. Bronzini very salty. Chocolate mousse had artificial ingredients after taste. Wait staff too aggressive in clearing table before everyone finished eating. Disappointing experience.

    Prime Bistro is nicely decorated, but it is noisy. There was a long line of people waiting to be seated and no one asked if we had reservations; we were totally ignored. In fact, there were several tables for 2 available. The food was good, but the service was awful.

    Not what I would expect from a place that charges so much. Food was less than mediocre. Sushi had no flavor, could have spent 10 times less if I went to a fast food place.

Son told waiter it was birthday but the dessert never came out until maitre’d finally came by and threw the plates in table And 5 seconds later…the bill!!! Food pricey and not bad but service was lacking

    Steak was just great. We got a 36 ounce T bone steak for the 2 of us and it was perfectly cooked. Food is expensive but prices not outrageous for the kosher steakhouse. It was very loud and busy but we expected that to be the case on the Valentine’s Day. Will definitely come back (on a quieter evening).

    The burger was way over priced for what it is. All I was given was a beef patty, a single slice of lettuce and some onions inside some buns. This restaurant advertises themselves as an expensive establishment, yet the burger was over cooked (asked for medium rare), the burger did not come with any special sauces, and no pickles. It was a very bland burger and it was just ok. The only redeeming quality were the French fries that it came with. Overall it was a disappointing burger for $36.

    Beautiful restaurant, good ambiance and acoustics. Food was fresh and tasty. Service was a bit slow especially since not too many diners were there while we were. However, all servers were exceptionally polite and helpful. The lemon Tart dessert was delicious. The rib steaks were cooked to perfection. Too much fat on the Short Ribs, so not a filling portion. A great Steakhouse. Stick to the steaks. Appetizers were also really good.

    Excellent service. The waiter was very nice, we were seated right away and didn’t wait long for our food. He felt bad that they didn’t have the dessert we ordered on the menu so he threw in the chocolate suffle for free.

    We loved sitting outside with some light music enjoying a good meal close to home. My wife enjoyed the branzino and we both enjoyed the fresh guacamole app. The steak wasn’t terrible by any means and I ate it, but I ordered it medium rare and it came medium well, and a neighboring table appeared to have the same issue.

    I was a bit concerned about covid while I was there, we were placed about 2 feet from the table next to us and there was constantly people without masks walking close to us. It was nerve wrecking and though everything else was wonderful, I do wish a little more care was taken to distance the tables from each other.
