Primo specializes in Mediterranean Italian cuisine with an emphasis on fresh ingredients, an outstanding wine list, and exceptional service. The menu focuses on the farm-to-table experience with seasonal highlights including produce, honey and eggs sourced from on-premise Primo Garden and Whisper Creek Farm in addition to Mick's Farm and Frog Song Organics in the local community. All seafood is also locally sourced from Florida waters, including clams from Cedar Key, white shrimp and squid from Cape Canaveral, and Snapper, grouper, and other seasonal catch from Ponce Inlet. Mountain Trail Farm in Clermont, FL provides Primo with whole pigs, which are prepared several different ways. Primo also has a long-standing relationship with Lake Meadows Naturals in Ocoee, FL for chicken and ducks.

Excellent food and service, the main restaurant is under renovation, so you eat in another space which isn’t as nice as the pictures online, but still the food was excellent

Via the booking process it was not known that Primo was being renovated and the menu was being served in an alternate space. The food was average, not what would be expected of a high end restaurant. Server was not very attentive, had to track her down a couple of times.

Primo Restaurant is currently undergoing major changes in decor. The original location is closed and the venue has been temporarily been moved downstairs to the Citron Restaurant location. The menu was limited to only five entree items, as well as the appetizers. All of this should have been noted on Open Table. If I had known this, I would not have dined there. This temporary location is suppose to go til the end off July. Alcholol drink prices are ridiculous, as they are about $3.00 higher than the bar venues one floor above. On the positive side, our server (Martha) did a wonderful job of taking care of us.

Great food. But it was the last night they were going to be open for 5 months. Under new ownership and they are gutting the place. I think there will be a small dining room to use while remodeling. But the major restaurants at this location are hard to get in to.

The service was very good and a very nice staff. The food is expensive and not good at all. It was salty and the pastas were overly seasoned with spice and heat. The calamari was tough and very salty. Not a good dining experience.

We were visiting Orlando and wanted Italian food. We were so glad we choose Primo because everyone loved the food, our server was wonderful and we can’t wait to go back. We started with the Charcuterie board and it was filled with 4 different cheeses, 3 different meats, honeycomb, nuts and breads. It was perfect to enjoy some wine and cocktails and start the evening. We enjoyed the chef’s specialty, Saltimbocca and short rib linguine. We finished dinner with gelato and chocolate cake and left completely happy Thanks to a great server who kept things flowing perfectly.

The food was good but a bit overpriced, IMO. Did not like the ambiance at all. The way the restaurant is set up is not conducive to a romantic dinner experience.. we felt closed off from the rest of the tables. We were a bit disappointed as we are used to higher quality restaurant experiences at the J W Marriott.

This is the only negative review I have ever left, but it was really not great. I went to Primo really excited about the fact that they had an in-house garden they sourced their vegetables from. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The poor rating comes from the food. Although I rarely eat pork, the staff said that the pork scallopini was truly the special of the house and excellent in all ways. I additionally ordered the mixed grill because I really wanted to try all those super fresh vegetables that had been the draw in the first place. The waiter told me that it was never set what was on the grill because it was just what was picked fresh that day! Awesome. The scallopini reminded me of a hungry man dinner. The pork was ok, but on top of I guess mashed potatoes that had the taste and consistency of instant. Seriously. There was an unnoteworthy brown gravy and a slice of ham that had an off taste that made me think it was maybe not stored dry enough or was just a bit old. That was it. Beige. For a place that markets itself for it's fresh veg, it was sad that they presented a dish with no color or veg. The mixed grill was a plate of blistered vegetables and it was evident they were not fresh out of the garden. It had cauliflower florets, which would not be grown in FL and ripe at that time, asparagus and broccoli rabe, both also not likely. There were some peppers and green onions that could have been fresh, but FL should have been greens, lettuces, beets, etc. The taste was certain that it was mostly frozen vegetables, dry charred. Not great.
It was only important because this is an expensive restaurant. The quality should have been much higher. It certainly wasn't a fresh farm to table meal, nor even something I would expect from the Ritz (the site says Primo is at the Ritz, even though it's actually next door in the Marriott). The people were very nice, but I would not return nor recommend this to anyone, even guests without transportation. Order a pizza.
