    I've been a patron of Primo's for many years, and I am always pleased with my meals. My friend and I both enjoyed our entrees - I had the salmon and she had pasta. Salad was delicious - red leaf with citrus vinaigrette. One blip was that my meal came out about 5 minutes before my friend's - very awkward as one wants to eat the fish when it is first served, not let it cool on the plate. Otherwise, though another enjoyable evening.

Dean the waiter was absolutely outstanding, very personable & fun. 6 had the Ribeye was excellent, 1 pork chop again excellent, 1 ordered pizza & was very pleased, 2 others had the fish entries 1 salmon & it was superb & the other had the halibut. We also had some appetizers, calamari & the fried cauliflower with hummus. Dessert especially the Sticky Toffee pudding was outstanding.

    Primo Grill is my go-to restaurant for out of town visitors, or with local friends for a night out. The Grill is exactly what one wants from an eatery, good food in a good place. It has an upscale vibe and a down-home feel. I especially like their way around a piece of fish.

    Primo is always fabulous! Lovely atmosphere with large roll up windows, sitting on a sweet corner on 6th Ave. The food is always consistent, never over cooked, always flavorful and extremely high quality. We love the pork chop, lamp chops, arugula salad, mussels and the rosy bees knees cocktail. This is by far our favorite restaurant in Washington (yes even out of anything in Seattle) It’s a gem! And GREAT service! Always! Never have had a subpar experience. Highly recommend!

    Great place. Server was nice however it took 10 min before he took our order for drinks and another 15min for food. Been here before and service is usually better than that so it could have been just my expectations from previous experience. Other than that everything's was great

    The drinks, the wine, and the food was wonderful, as was the service. The noise level, however, was nearly unbearable. No attempt has been made to reduce the noise. Every surface is hard, noise enhancing rather than noise muffling.

    We got there early and were seated right away. No flowers on table as promised. The drinks and food were very good. As the restaurant filled up the noise level got louder and louder to the point of not hearing others talking in our party - it didn’t help that street noise an ambulance sirens were part of it. Overall the service was great in the bar and the bartender was charming. We agreed we would return another time in the future.

    Went to Primo for Mother’s Day. We were a party of five, with a 5pm reservation. Upon arrival, we were led to a table with high chairs (the only such table). Two of our party have physical disabilities, and are seniors. The older hostess seemed very put out by having to seat us at a regular table, displaying a cold and irritated attitude towards us. We were then seated at a table for four, with our fifth person crowded on the end. The restaurant was not crowded at this point, with multiple empty table in back room. Bad attitude from hostess for beginning of evening. The waitress was nice and attentive, but seemed quiet and new to the restaurant, and was unfamiliar with items on menu. Food arrived with sauce different than what was stated on the menu. Waitress told us it was one thing, when it was actually another. All of the food was of high-quality and fresh. Two of our party loved their food (chicken dish $27), one of the party was neutral (steak $46), and two felt that it was bland and tasteless (even though they ordered items with spice) (pasta and salmon). All the salad’s were bland and flavorless. Our drinks were good, including the house red wine and mixed drinks. The desserts were all excellent (coconut cake, hazelnut brownie, and another chocolate item). Everyone agreed that the items on the menu, for the most part, we’re overpriced for what we got. Would love to recommend this place, but we probably will not be returning.

    We had some nice salads that had roasted veggies under greens. We had a Salmon Special and the Black Cod Special. The flavors were amazing and the fish was cooked just right so as to be moist inside and not over done. We will be back again soon. The only drawback is parking in that area. It is hard to find in that area between 5 and 6 pm on a Friday night on Mothers day weekend. We may try to us a ride service next time.
