We are dining at all the Prime restaurants. Huge entrees and delicious flavors. Bread was cheesy and warm. Service was good considering how busy it was on a Saturday night. Next time we’ll come w friends.

Every single staff member is amazing from the hostess to waiters. They are constantly checking in and refilling drinks. They were also great with my dog that I brought (we sat outside and he stayed in his carrier mostly) but one of the waiters brought him water. The ambiance is perfect; we prefer prime Italian to prime 112. The pasta dishes are amazing. And the desserts are out of this world.

I had a reservation for 930 and didn’t get seated for 45 min. The hostess did not tell me that wait would be so long I would have left. I was very disappointed with the long wait times and miscommunication.

Terrible service. Waitress very hard to find. Had to get up and find service just to get drinks before dinner and after waiting at least 20++ minutes from seating. She Did not care. Dinners not delivered together. Even getting the check after 3 hours for dinner was a problem.

Entrees were average, at best. Apps were very good. Veal parm over cooked, and dark brown/ somewhat burnt. Pasta was ok. Not what I expected. Better places for Italian in Miami Beach for sure!!

Our server wasn’t helpful in recommending items from their menu. Plus, we had a long wait between each course that was brought out.

Our fish was cold by the time our server found time to plate our entree. We shared our feedback with the server and she just said, “Oh really?”

We’ve enjoyed dinners here before and know that the restaurant can do much better. Very disappointed.

Requested a nice table as i knew it would be crowded, it took 2 tries and a 15 wait at the bar. The food when it came was delicious. Portions are way over the top, had a full doggy bag to go. Service was very slow. Very expensive for the experience. 50/50 we’ll go back.

Food quality has really dropped here. The tuna is tasteless and the pasta is not much better. Also, charging for an extra piece of bread at a $600 lunch is not the way prime restaurants typically operate. .

We were having our New Year’s dinner which we have done in past years in other restaurants in Miami and never in our life we were seated in the sidewalk. Our table was horrible, seating in a sidewalk’s corner where everybody passes. Everybody was looking at our food and drinks and I had to hold on to my purse all the time being afraid of someone stolen it. I have eat in Prime Italian before but I would never go there again. On New Years you dress nice and we looked ridiculous seating in the street specially when the restaurant is so upscale. There were men with black tie suits and women with long dresses. They should re-think their seating accommodations. So sad because I was so excited to eat there on New Years. Food was good but the seating takes away all the nice experience I have had there before. Never again.

From the moment we entered and approached the hostess, who had a severe attitude, we knew our experience was not going to be a good one. Wait staff was not friendly at all and you could tell their soul purpose was to turn over tables. Our food came and it was all wrong. Meats were not cooked to the temperature or level we requested. Some food was missing. When we inquired we were told harshly, it's on its way. I would never eat here again and I would not recommend this restaurant unless you enjoy rudeness and attitude from the moment you arrive.

With a pre existing reservation, we still waited one hour for a table. Server was lovely, but overwhelmed with other tables. Martinis arrived in low ball glasses as they apparently ran out of martini glasses. After waiting for 40 minutes for appetisers it took another hour after that for the mains, all of which were incorrectly cooked and inedible. How a restaurant of this caliber can mess up so badly is hard to understand. Served the salads with no serving utensils. Tables around us who sat later ate and left well before we saw a main course. While they took all of the inedible food off the bill, a very disappointing experience adding up to nearly 4 hours - and leaving hungry. Never again.

Don’t order the linguine with clams. I have had that dish all over the world and this was the worst preparation ever. Others in my party liked their food and I have been to PI many times but this time I was not happy. Our server offered to remove my entree from the check but did not. It was a crazy busy night there and I do not want to be brutal in my criticism. Every place has a bad night and on balance Myles runs a good show.

Very disappointed! I’ve been to Prime Italian before & have always loved it, but this time was not good. Tables we were offered were terrible (one in the bar & other right next to food service) with staff running all about. Felt extremely rushed through our meal (taking plates when you put your fork down). Food was just okay & service was rushed. Not enjoyable at all! I would not recommend!

This restaurant is not what it used to be - so overcrowded that we didn’t get seated until 55minutes after our reservation time. The food was not as great as usual - the value is horrible - $17 for a side of spaghetti - they should be ashamed.

Food is excellent. Service was very very good except we had to wait. Apparently they overbooked their restaurant for the evening. Took an hour for us to get our entrance. Sebastian, the manager did his best. Alexa or server also did her best.
