 (New England)·Dined 2 days ago

On vacation read various reviews and thought we would give it a try. We were surprised beyond belief, great meal, Bone in Fillet and Rib Eye, fantastic. Oyster Rockefeller was world class. Greeted by Kenny our host and our fantastic server Stephanie made this one of the top restaurants we visited. I would recommend this to anyone who asked.

Service was great but the steak was less than standard especially for the price. It was something you would expect from a chain restaurant, not a $50 per steak place. The rest of the food was very good though.

This is a really good steak house- being from the DC area, we usually go to the traditional steak houses there (Mortons, Ruths Chris) That being said, the special bone in fillet that I had at Prime(I know- what??) was the best beef I have ever eaten. Perfectly aged, seasoned and grilled. Very good service, and a nice upscale atmosphere. Highly recommend!

 (Nashville)·Dined on January 18, 2018

The food was outstanding. The service was terrible considering what I had been led to expect was the best steakhouse in town and the price point. They did recognize that they were falling down on service and tried to make it up with a complimentary creme brule and coffee. I would go back, but would base going back ever again on service.

This was by far the best restaurant we ate at while in Key West. Melt in your mouth filet, delicious lobster. They even went so far to acknowledge we were there celebrating our 30th anniversary with a menu stating it, a sparkler and dessert. I would think they were the best based off the quality of the food and staff alone. Thanks for making out last night in Key West great!!

 (Naples)·Dined on December 12, 2017

Steaks were good but way under cooked. I ordered my filet med + and it was more to medium rare. My husband ordered his steak medium rare and was more to rare than medium. Nether steaks were very juices. We enjoyed our dinner. The salad and soup were both very good as well as the sides.

The wait staff were very attentive. If they say your water glass empty regardless if it was their table or not they stopped by our table and refilled them.

Would recommend eating here but remember to order your steak a little more done than usual.

The steaks are the best. Not inexpensive but worth the money considering the ambiance as well. Making and early reservation for a special occasion, we got the private dining area. Cozy and private. Our waitress Kim was exemplary in her attentiveness while also being very pleasant and had a great sense of humor. I would definitely recommend asking for her. This is one of the most expensive restaurants in Key West, but if you are in a mood for meat, it is well worth the money if you want a special evening.

 (Key West)·Dined on November 14, 2017

I found prime on Google as I was looking for a top quality steak with local seafood while my wife and I were in Key West on holiday. I'll start the review with the food. The shrimp starter was delicious, with a bed of the, freshest, strongest horseradish I've ever had supporting four delicious, and huge shrimp. I chose the surf n turf for main and my 8oz lobster tail, and 10oz fillet steak were cooked beautifully, and as I asked. The truffled macaroni side I ordered was also nice. My wife had the fish of the day, topped with a crab cake and Asparagus, which she found delicious, and very filling.
Our server, Sterling (I think he was called) was nice and helpful in explaining the special's. However I, and the table opposite us felt that quite a few other people seemed to be getting a lot more priority service as we had to wait a long time for starters (+35mins, it was only chilled shrimp) and the bread came with the starter, cold, with no butter. In fairness to our server I think some of this was due to a loud group behind us demanding a lot of our server, and another group who ours, and the table of 3 opposite me assumed were regulars as all the servers were very attentive to them but seemed to serve us as and when they remembered. A shame as our sterling was a nice guy, when he was with us. As a Brit, and a member of CAMRA I would say the two beers I tried were poor and flavourless, and overpriced! Especially given the choice of wonderful craft ales available in the USA nowadays .
This website asks if I would recommend Prime, so I'd say give Prime a go as the food is excellent, however only go when it is quiet as the service, and crucially the "details" are not worth the cost, I have had much better timing of the food in considerably cheaper places, which is sad as the restaurants core food is really lovely. To summarise, Our food was lovely but we wouldn't go again as we know better overall options are available in Key West.
