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.

The restaurant was extremely loud, and not a good place to conduct business. The food was subpar and definitely not worth the money, which is very upsetting as the food has been very good in the past.

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.

Dined here for Mother’s Day...food was good but pricey and the service was hectic. In the future during major holidays they should increase their staffing to accommodate the crowds or don’t overbook.

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.

This was our first time dining at Prime Bistro. It was for my fiancee's birthday dinner. I called ahead to put a note in that it was his birthday so that the staff would sing when they brought dessert and I wouldn't have to say anything to the staff in front of my fiancee. I was assured a note was put in the reservation and the gentleman who took my request would be there that night.

We were sat immediately. It was busy. It took about a good 5-10 minutes before a server came over to greet us (besides the bus boy bringing water and bread). This was off-putting. We couldn't even order a cocktail. I don't know if they were just incredibly busy or low on staff but it seemed that there were only a few waiters. The bread and garlic oil was delicious and so were our cocktails. We ordered the salmon and the short ribs, both of which were delicious and well-cooked. We also ordered a side of the whipped potatoes. The sides were small considering the price but the entrée sizes were nice. We ordered the molten lava cake for dessert (my fiancee's favorite) and I was completely disappointed when a bus boy brought it out without any singing or a candle. The cake was outstanding -- probably one of the best I've ever had and especially one of the best parve desserts I've had. When the waiter came back to clear, I told him about my calling ahead for my fiancee's birthday and he said he could bring it out now that we had finished. I said that was not necessary and basically defeated the whole purpose. He then told me I should have reminded the host when I walked in -- THIS WAS NOT ON ME. I called ahead so that it would be a surprise -- the fact that his screwup was placed on me was completely off putting and unacceptable. We drove all the way from Suffolk County (an hour each way) for a special occasion and it was a wonderful meal, but they need more staff and to step up their game on service. Otherwise, we'll return for the delicious food and cocktails.

Our reservation for 2 was at 815 pm. We arrived on time and was told only two couples were ahead of us. We figured we’d wait max 10-15 min. We ended up waiting 40 minutes. They then seated a couple who’s reservation was for 9 pm and it was only exactly 8:47 pm. We were still waiting and got very upset as our reservation was over 40 minutes ago & that this other couple got seated before us. The restaurant was completely packed. They overbooked and it is extremely wrong and unprofessional. I mentioned to the hostess that she seated the other couple before us who’s reservation wasn’t until 9 (10 min from then ) ours was 45 minutes before then. It seemed that we wouldn’t even be seated any time soon. Her response was “I’m trying my best”. We were upset by the lack of professionalism & didn’t want to wait any longer so we left very annoyed. Next time a restaurant shouldn’t over book reservations!!!!

Most of the food was amazing but one expensive steak we ordered was extremely undercooked we had to send it back twice to get cooked more and still came back almost inedible. The waiters seemed to not care that we were unhappy about that at all. 1 nice waiter asked if everything was ok but did nothing about the steak except send another waiter who didnt seem to really want to help us. Overall most food was great but that experience was very disappointing for the money we spent.

We made our reservation through open table which was confirmed by you. Later that day, when we were not home, our caller ID showed that they called but did not leave us a message. I thought they were calling to confirm. When I called them back the next day, they told me they don’t accept online reservations, so our reservation was invalid. Nor did they leave a message to that effect, so we could not go there that evening, as there were no spots available. I just don’t understand why they offer the ability to reserve through open table when they don’t accept them. And from their end, why would they not leave us any message at all?

Food was pretty good and the noise level was OK until about 9pm--then it got loud. But the food was good and I'd certainly go back again.

Restaurant is in a clean, upscale atmosphere, with accomplished/professional servers, kitchen, etc... Food was beautifully presented. Diners' appetizers arrived at the table precisely at the same time. Same was true for entrees, which were cooked to perfection. Portions were more than generous.
