    The giant shrimp cocktail was delicious. Sauce was perfect. My tuna tartare was minced and not cubed, and tasteless. The few dime-sized dots of sauce were woefully inadequate, and much more was needed to add some taste to this disaster. My eggplant Parm was two big slices of eggplant, only the top one of which had Parm on it. The dish was barely warm. Sauce was good. The pizza joint, Sorbillo, around the corner, served a 10X better eggplant parm. My wife had the veal Milanese, and it was dry as paper. The bottle of Pellegrino was 12 bucks and my wife’s glass of Cabernet was $30. Service was very good.

    We are regulars visiting from New York with friends who were first timers to Prime. We had a great dinner! David was our waiter. Michael the assistant waiter. Both made suggestions, we’re friendly and helpful. Portions are HUGE! Four of us shared a chopped salad…awesome and HUGE. We had two red snappers with crabmeat on top. Trust me. The four of us could have shared one order with the salad and would have been enough. We also got an order of roasted cauliflower and also an order of brussel sprouts. Really good!!! Highly recommend!

    Just another Italian. We had 2 salads which were OK , 2 big servings , to much to eat for a regular person. The food is OK but not refined….

    Let me start by saying that the food at Prime Italian is outstanding! That being said - the service was shockingly disappointing. The servers are pure order takers. Nothing more and nothing less; I guess this is what happens when restaurants include a gratuity automatically instead of giving staff an incentive. I sat next to a table where the gentleman received the wrong entree. It was not even close to what he ordered. The server never checked in with the table to see how everything was, and despite the desperate attempt of the gentleman to grab an employees’ attention by flapping his arms like a wild turkey - nobody noticed. As a matter of fact, several employees seemed to purposely avoid eye contact as they passed by his table. There was zero management presence on the floor. He finally gave up and ate what was placed in front of him, now cold. Thankfully, I received what I ordered and it was delicious, although my server never checked in with me. Now do not get me wrong - I am more than willing to pay top dollar at a restaurant. However, Prime Italian needs to be reminded that people are paying for an experience- not just food.

    At these prices, the service was really not great. Veal Chop was overcooked, pasta sauce was NOT great, and having eaten at Prime the night before, we were really sad about the level of service here across the street at Prime Italian. I had to go inside and get ice after asking three different servers. I ordered a gin martini; they gave me vodka. Just expected so much better having eaten at Prime. Disappointed.

    We both had specials. I had snapper with crabmeat. It was exceptional. My wife had lobster ravioli with crab, also excellent. The portion were large and the cheesy bread was too good to pass up. My recommendation is don’t eat too much bread, you’ll never finish your entree. Our service was also exceptional. We were here for 4 days and had dinner here the first evening. It was so good we came back on day 3 and were even more impressed. This will be a required stop any time we visit Miami Beach.

    Spaghetti and meatballs that my husband had was soooo very salty and the waitress did not return to table until my meal was over. My husband could not eat this. They did remove his meal from our bill, but we would have rather they replaced it. This was an anniversary celebration so disappointed needless to say. My lobster risotto was fabulous and I shared it with my husband because I felt bad the waitress never returned to check on us after delivery our food.

    Exceptional food as always - legendary cheesesteak, ricotta meatball, and chicken parm sliders. Great service despite a full-house New Year’s Eve. And nicely decorated to ring in the new year with balloons. Definitely a favorite/must -visit of my family when in Miami.
