Prime Italian Ratings and Reviews
We waited in a long line for 30 minutes to check in and watched people go around and cut in front and get checked in before us.
9:00 reservations and waited an hour in an overcrowded room to be seated only after we checked on out reservation because they weren’t even going to seat us.
I feel the food is good, the waiters were nice, but the process itself to be seated is very disorganized.
Not a good experience to say the least.
My wife and I live in Fort Lauderdale
We like to visit south beach for time away from the kids
Prime Italian was always are regular go to restaurant.
The management has changed. I cannot explain enough how horrible the customer service was last night
We showed up 15 minutes early for an 830 reservation
At 9:30 our table was still not ready
We had pleaded with the hostess that we had an 11:00 show and could not continue to wait
Her response was sorry the boat show is in town and many were late for their reservations
She could not make them leave. I spoke with the manager and he had an is what it is attitude
We had to leave after waiting an hour an 15 minutes
Also please note the hostess lied several times
Told us to wait wear she could see us because we were next. That went on for an hour
Many of you regulars might remember the previous GM., Steve Mann, (Budda)
He was awesome and would never let something like this happen.
You ruined ours and many other customers night prime Italian
We won’t be back
WOW the best ever my husband and I got the lasagna and Kobe meatball it's was outstanding we came late for our reservation but there was no problem that sat us done right away our server was great we ended everything with the deep fried Oreos omgosh to dye for will be going back definitely
I have been to all the Prime establishments in the past including this one.
My experience always was positive but this visit was less than stellar. The service was absolutely the worst. Never was asked if we needed anything or to find out if the food was to our liking. The food was served cold and with few exceptions lacked taste.
I am not sure if I would ever return.
Had a reservation through open table. Waited for over an hour. Hostess was horrible at her job. Extremely inefficient. Open tables and a busy place and she couldn’t step away from desk to actually seat people. We were a party of two, and I watched her combine two, 2 tops to seat a party of 4, meanwhile, there were 3 open 4 tops...meaning another party of 2 and our party of 2 had to wait even longer. Poorly run front of the house.
Manager was clueless too. When we reminded him it had been an hour, he said well it’s busy. Not a sorry or wow it’s an hour past your reservation, how can I help ease your wait. He was quite smug. Food was good, but mismanagement, overshadowed the food.
Absolutely fantastic experience! The garlic bread a must have! Not usually a fan of prosciutto, but the guys ordered it because it was aged for 500 days, and it was amazing. We shared the Cesar salad and everyone at the table loved the dinner they ordered. Large portions and hated not taking home left-overs but we were staying at a hotel with no mini fridge:( Admittedly, it is pricey, but terrific food and great setting. Would highly recommend, especially if celebrating something special!
I was immediately seated upon arrival. The service was amazing. The food was really good! All of their dishes are big enough to share. Amazing dining experience. Can’t wait to come back to Miami to dine again!
Don’t leave without getting the fried Oreos, amazing presentation.
My fiancee and I went here while we were vacationing in Miami. The ambiance and food was great! The complimentary cheese bread is a must have! We actually was full off the bread before we received our entree. They serve really big portions of food whivh is great but some of them are almost shareable! Service was above and beyond! I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!
Bad start when the hostess says we only have this table…or this table which you won’t like either! Hey, we made a reservation & you confirmed it. It’s not like we surprised you by dropping in. The waitstaff is rather lethargic & the busboys are kind of frenetic. They were reconfiguring tables & throwing chairs around that it seemed more like roller derby than fine dining. If you want to be rushed and/or ignored you might as well go to Prime 112 rather than this ugly stepsister. In all fairness, Julia was a lovely & efficient & personable waitress who saved the day. And by the way, the food is very good.
The meal was equivalent to other restaurants with the same menu. The service was amazing. Our waiter Dave was awesome. He gave suggestions and answered every question. He even suggested when to add pepper to a dish. Service is a big part of the meal, in my opinion, and Dave was exceptional!!
The food was excellent, as was the service. We had a 9:00pm reservation and had to wait an hour for our table. It was over crowded. Not only no place to sit. No place to stand. Food was good. Service was good we won't go back. They overbook and don't care about the customer. They'll replace them with new ones.
Although the food actually tasted good, everything was cold,( as in didn’t even warm up the tomato sauce from room temp cold ). Meat was Luke warm at best. Really got the feeling they had tons of food sitting around and microwaved just a little to get it out. Very crowded and loud, tables on top of each other - and valet a nightmare.
