Our meal was delicious! The flavor combinations were beautifully put together. We enjoyed this meal from beginning to end. The appetizers were each complex and delicious in their own way. The meatball and polenta appetizer was seasoned to perfection and my favorite. Our meals were packed full of flavor and memorable. The dessert was divine! Our service was exceptional. The staff was attentive and very knowledgeable. This was a great dining experience. We will dine here again!

This was my third time here. I make it a point to eat here each time I stay at the Marriott or the Ritz. Upscale Italian food but won't break the bank. I strongly suggest making reservations in advance, as this place fills up pretty quick. Their wine selection and cocktails are impressive.

They did not give me my points for my dining. I had a reservation for two. We just flew in. My associate was having problems at airport so we were not sure if she would make it. I was hungry since I had been up since 4:30 traveling and no food. I guess they decided to penalize me instead of offering great service. I am at hotel for 5 days wit 8 people and I will not bring them there.

Our food was not very good except for our dessert that was excellent. We were one of two tables in the restaurant and still service was not great! The server spilled a drink with ice and just left it there for my daughter to clean up. I would never eat here again!

I visited this restaurant a few years back and toughly enjoyed it. (I have only just returned to this area) Unfortunately on this last visit, the smell of old cooking oil or fat was very off putting, and seemed to linger on your clothes, it is no longer the upmarket restaurant I remember, the choice of menu, being meatballs, burgers and pizza do not justify the that label. However our server was very pleasant and efficient. I will not be in a hurry to revisit this restaurant.

I had dinner with family and found the food was of good quality and there was a nice selection of wines. I found this restaurant frankly overpriced considering the service, noisy atmosphere and location.

My wife and I really enjoyed our 9th Anniversary dinner. The waiter was great, very attentive and personable. They have a very limited selection of menu items ( 1 fish, 1 seafood, 1 meat, 1 chicken, etc.). A little inconsistent on the pricing and very expensive. $11 for a basic salad, $22 for lobster and pasta, and $44 for veal shank. We brought our own special bottle of champagne and were certainly expecting a corkage fee of $15. We were VERY displeased with a $25 corkage fee. That is way out of whack for less than 2 minutes of the waiters time. The restaurant would still get their profit margin on a $15 corkage fee. We would not go back anytime soon. We would recommend it but would caution about the prices.

It was our second time eating here. First time everything was spot on. This time the mushroom bisque lacked flavor other than the large fosr of truffle oil. Veggie pasta was way too salty.

Food was amazing, great service, great wine list. You are paying a resort premium which is fine, the food quality and service justifies the price, just does not earn a 5th star for value.

Visiting within a month since
Our first
Time was AMAZING! However, we were a bit disappointed. The service was pretty bad. The restaurant was not busy and service and food were SLOW!! Too slow. We were not
Impressed with the fried gnocchi. They brought us out some free appetizers because they knew they were slow and we didn’t understand why. Needless to say, we got our food so late we took it home. A little disappointed.

Dining at Primo was an excellent end to our vacation at the JW Marriott. The food was delicious, unique, and reasonably priced. Our waiter was highly attentive and provided efficient service. Moreover, the ambiance was quiet and managed to integrate class and comfort. I would highly recommend making reservations in advance. My husband and I look forward to dining at Primo the next time we are in Orlando.

Dining at its finest. The food here is magnificent! The service is amazing. Food arrives timely and not on top of each course. Each dish is like an explosion of flavors in your mouth. When I visit Orlando, it is one of the first restaurants at which I make a reservation. Highly recommend it. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it.

I was staying at the Ritz and chose Primo in the JW next door as the menu looked to have pleasing choices to have dinner with my son and his wife.

The staff were very pleasant and attentive.
However. The food was not exceptional at all.
We ordered a variety from the menu too. Salad with added shrimp, a fish dish and a pasta dish..

We sent the salad back to have the shrimp cleaned up. They were served in their entirety with shell, heads legs and tails sitting on top of the salad and looked very unappetizing.
The pasta was mediocre and a small portion for a main course and nothing special. The fish dish was ok.
Overall, it was very pricey and not worth it. I wouldn't go back.

This was their first time to dine at Primo and they were not disappointed. Chef Melissa brought out a special dish she was working on for an event to let us try. We had a wonderful evening. Will definitely return.

Dinner was very good but after our dinner arrived we felt foregotten. No one stopped by to check if they came out okay or refill drinks. My date seemed annoyed with his dinner but again no one came to the table. We saw several servers approach our table then go to the bigger tables instead. I wasn’t even sure if someone was going to bring us a check at one point. We’ve dined here before and have had much better service experiences in the past.

We went to Primo with low expectations, given that it's within the JW Marriott in the Grande Lakes Resort. What we found is a chef-driven (Melissa Kelly) restaurant serving fresh, seasonal dishes with a Mediterranean / Italian bent. Our server and supporting cast were as good as any you'll find. To get to restaurants off-property isn't a short drive and this venue in the hotel was a very pleasant surprise. The prices were high, but so is everything on the property. The cost of convenience!

Wonderful pork saltimbocca. They also gave out app and dessert tasters for no charge. The mushroom bisque was delicious but the eye appeal was lacking. A little pricey but for a special occasion well worth the money. I feel that an Italian restaurant should have taramisu year round though.
