I had a very enjoyable time. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. The halibut cheeks appetizer was delicious. I had the salmon special for my entrée and it was wonderful. We also had breadsticks that were addictive! I would definitely recommend this to friends and I will return!

It was absolutely incredible. The food was exquisite and the service was so friendly. Our server Aaron was so kind and patient with us, because I know we weren't the easiest customers. They also did so many special changes for us and it was the best accommodation I've ever had anywhere. They made my boyfriends birthday the most incredible, perfect experience. We will definitely be returning, this is our new favourite restaurant!

We enjoyed our recent dinner at Prime46Forty. It is close to our home and is a fairly new restaurant in our neighborhood. This is definitely a foodie place. The owner and waiter took very special care of us, and we felt like being a member of their family. This restaurant is somewhat pricey and a good choice for special occasions.

I chose to celebrate my birthday at the Prime Forty46 and was not disappointed. Everything was
well cooked, nicely plated and delicious. Our server was helpful in helping us choose and describing dishes. Knowledgeable about the wine list and if he didn't know he found out. All in all it was a very pleasant evening and we will go back.

I was very unhappy with the service it was our anniversary and when I made the reservation on the phone I made the person aware. I was told that would be acknowledge and it wasn't. Our server came to our table twice didn't refill my wine glass. Didn't ask if we needed anything else. It was an unpleasant experience.

My husband and I were visiting Williamsburg for the weekend and found reviews on OpenTable that sounded as if Prime 46forty would be a good choice for us. We had a good, but not great meal here. Everything was fine, but nothing had a real "wow" factor and our service was pretty weak. Not sure if our server was new or just uneducated but he seemed to "forget" to bring our wine or to refill our water jug and he reached across us to place silverware at our settings, rather than walking around. It was very quiet in the restaurant for a Saturday nite so feel like a different location (not at the end of a strip mall in suburbia) might be a better fit for this level of restaurant. And of note, we had dinner the prior nite at Fat Canary, the bills were identical in cost but Fat Canary rated a 5 star review from both of us.

We arrived on a Tuesday evening at 7. A good time to go as the restaurant was not crowded and we were seated immediately. (We did have an Open Table reservation) Our server was prompt, polite, and professional. I had the dry aged NY Strip. Others in our party had the Ribeye, the pork chop, and the veal cutlets. All were exceptional.

If there are two things you absolutely must order when you visit, they are the duck prosciutto and the truffle macaroni and cheese. These alone are worth the visit.

An excellent steakhouse, but the veal dish was also fantastic! Service was impeccable, and what's really great is that there isn't any corkage charged on Sunday nights -- so bring your own great wine and celebrate!

We went to celebrate a friend's special birthday and it was a perfect setting. We started with very yummy cocktails and starters. We then went on to enjoy seafood entrees and saved room for absolutely delicious desserts. The service was impeccable and if you ask any of us if we would return to Prime46forty anytime soon, we each would say absolutely!

The food was definitely good as were the white linen tablecloths and the low noise level. What wasn't so good was the check which was too close to $200 (for 2) for us to go there very much.
Also, the restaurant was close to empty whichdetracts significantly from the ambience.

Service was a little slow possibly because of delays in the kitchen.

This is a great find.
Carroll is a gem and I love her warmth and accessibility to all those that come into the restaurant. The food is prepared wonderfully. There is not too much sauce or "extra", it lets the main piece shine.
The fish and lamb chops that we had were perfectly cooked.
The wine list is carefully selected and offers something for everyone. Charmingly named cocktails and beer are also available.
The desserts were amazing!

Upscale restaurant with good cuts of meat, good seafood, and a nice wine list. Don't expect to have a full meal with drinks for under $100. It is worth the price for a nice occasion.
