    Very pricey, My husband and I had a 4 oz filet, and an 8 oz filet, he had mashed potatoes and a dinner Caesar salad and I had Brussels sprouts and a dinner Caesar salad. He drank water, I had one glass of pinio Grigio. No dessert. He asked for bread, brought out 1 piece in a basket. Our meal cost 194.00 before the tip. The restaurant charged us a 3.9% surcharge to use a credit card….. Our server was very good, so I tipped her well. Too pricey. It was not THAT GOOD!!!

    The service was amazing. Mint Lemontini is to die for. I got the ceasar salad, filet, and mashed potatoes. I am very picky about ceasar salads, but this was one of the best ones I've ever had! Loved every bit of this experience.

    The only disappointment was that the restaurant was out of one of their specials! We sat at the counter and had a view of the kitchen and prep areas without it being overly noisy. Our alternate dinner choices were stellar- Ribeye with broccoli and the Bluefin Tuna with amazing veggies and rice.

    Service was great! Drinks were very good as well. We had the jalapeños margarita and it was great! Best margarita I have had. The bacon appetizer was very good as well. We ordered the one of the expensive cuts of steak and it was good but idk if it was worth $75. The Demi sauce on the steak was superb, which all in all made the steak great. Whatever you do, don’t be afraid to try to Jalapeño margarita, you will not be disappointed!

    I read several reviews stating that this was clearly not a white tablecloth restaurant but with very white tablecloth restaurant prices and I couldn’t agree more. I’ll start off by saying the oysters were good. Wife got the stir fry and was worse than a mall food court. The reason for such a low score is not the food rather just how cheated you feel when you leave. For two people, we spent close to $200 dollars which was to be expected but to sit and eat Chili’s quality food in a restaurant that felt like an upscale barbecue place. No bread and the menus are out of date on their website so several items we looked forward to were no longer offered. If you want to spend an outrageous amount of money on very average food in a less than stellar environment, this is the place.

    Our waiter was great!!! No complaints on the building very clean. The food was just very bland (I’m from Louisiana) for $200 ticket. The New York strip had little to no seasoning. The truffle fries were just plain fries (no seasoning or parmesan) with a sauce on the side. The Ceaser salad was my favorite. Amazing. I wouldn’t go back again because it’s not worth the price you pay to eat.

    The environment/ambiance is okay. It’s nice but not white tablecloth nice but the price is white table cloth price. The pork chop is ridiculously huge- not in a good way. I had the Boursin filet it was ok. The tomato soup was decent minus the goat cheese that gave it a sour flavor- don’t recommend with a creamy soup. The wedge salad was covered in a ranch that almost tasted like it had gone sour. My husband had to cut up the two flaccid pieces of bacon they laid on top of the wedge- I guess they couldn’t cut it. After $130 I think this place is a one and done for us.

    Oyster on half shell were very small for $3 a pop. Surf meal wasn't that big. Shrimp had no seasoning and didn't think they were as big as most tiger shrimp I've eaten.

    The food quality and menu has changed so much over the years. The Wagyu beef ribs were not good, the truffle chicken was served in an awkward dish and was so subpar. Our appetizers (oysters and mussels) were good.

    Our anniversary dinner at 501 Prime was outstanding in every way! From the moment we were seated our server Julie was great. From delicious recommendations for dinner to bringing us a complimentary treat for dessert she was excellent! For entrees we had the swordfish oscar with lump crab and the 501 smoked pork chop which both melted in your mouth. The servings were enough that be advised to come hungry. Best meal we have had in awhile and truly made our night special! Thanks 501 Prime!
