Food was delicious and arrived in a timely manner.
Food delicious! Appetizers pricey and portions are small however quality superb!
Great place to eat we had the carbonara it was a creamy bacon Pasta !!
The food would have been a 5 but the Kale was old and tough and dry. After a long day of work I would much prefer a place that has a lot more effort put into the comfort for the client. I want to sit in a soft chair and relax. The food was really good but the space felt so cheap! Sorry you asked! I wish there were a maybe choice for if I would recommend your establishment or not- most of the food was good - so you get a reluctant yes:)
We love going to Primal and this occasion was exceptional.
Well priced great value ideal date night or special occasion venue.
It was a phenomenal experience. Amazing food, although pricey, so worth it! Service was exceptional and our server in particular knew exactly how to describe each dish. I was very impressed. We will be coming back!
Great evening, super cool location and food was top drawer. Will be back!
This was a great dining experience. Food was outstanding and service was great
We love Primal! The staff is so great and the dishes are always consistently amazing.
What a great spot, dinner was fantastic with amazing service. We will be back!
Michael was amazing, 100% took care of us and made the experience so special. Love the outdoor sidewalk patio and the food, of course was unreal!
Pleasantly surprised being our first time in. Food menu was thoughtful and delicious. Service was attentive and engaging (can't recall her name however she was terrific and really enjoyed what she was doing. Drink list was creative and the wine list was small but very well thought out. Always love to see the Kettle Valley Pinot Gris on a list!
This was my first visit and everything was perfect. The food, service and cocktails were amazing. Everything is prepared fresh and in house. All in all a fantastic experience and I am definitely going again.
Pickerel was smelly, overdone. Planked filet was lukewarm, unappealing. Requested kale substitution, got kale. Cleaned adjacent table during meal, bad odor (place was empty except for us). Overpriced. Nice service. Bad menu.
We went there for our anniversary and were treated exceptionally. Wonderful service and meal.
Another great experience at Primal! Our waiter was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Fried bread was amazing as usual. Their house made twisted tea is a must try!
Great food. Great service. Really interesting cocktails.
Very good safety protocols. First time dining out since COVID and we felt safe. Good quality food and service. Only improvement would be the wine list; just ok wine for the price.
Delicious as usual! I always love eating real, quality food when going out and Primal always delivers!
Delicious food and friendly service! Loved the little patio outside as well.
We did the tasting menu and it was fabulous! Our server was knowledgeable and kind. We had a great time!
Food was great, wine was wonderfully curated by our server, gorgeous views of the bess from the patio with the prairie sunset behind us.
We had a table for 8:00 on the night of our 47 th anniversary. Our experience could not have been more perfect. Our servers were very attentive and knowledgeable about the different items on the menu. They are following all of the Covid guidelines and we felt very safe there. My husband had the walleye and I had the steak, with two appetizers and a dessert and all were delicious and prepared with care. A very enjoyable dining out experience- our first night out since March and we were not disappointed! We will be back!
The experience was great! Very safe covid free environment. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would go back for sure!
My boyfriend is Italian and he said the pasta sauce tasted exactly like his grandma’s homemade recipe! The service was amazing and the staff was really knowledgeable about the food and where it came from. All around great atmosphere. Will be visiting again!
Food is all superb. The pasta might be too soft for some, definitely not al dente but that comes with having fresh pasta I guess. Overall, an excellent experience.
Excellent drink choices, the rosè was incredible! As was the strawberry and fennel non alcoholic mock tail. The oysters were fresh ams the pasta top notch! Excellent service, server was able to answer all of our many questions and provide great suggestions. Can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic food, outstanding service
We went here for our wedding anniversary and it was so amazing. Great food, great service and such a special night!
Very good experience! It was our anniversary so we decided to check out Primal. A great Italian restaurant with great food and service. Their precautions for Covid were also up to our standards - overall a great experience!
Very good food, cozy atmosphere, not cheap still reasonable. we always spend a very good evening at Primal
A friend and I split the five course meal and added a fry bread and an extra half order of pasta. I'm still full the next day. So good! Beautiful meal with alllll the flavour.
Best food in Saskatoon by far. Sat on the new patio and it was great
Server was very welcoming and very professional, and the food was outstanding.
Wonderful experience start to finish.
Went for an anniversary supper and really enjoyed the meal. We did the 5 course and Matthew was our waiter...he was outstanding! The pasta course was both of our favorites!! Looking forward to going back again!!
First time coming to Primal and it was amazing. Very knowledgeable, polite staff. Covid measures are in place but they put a nice twist on the space between tables with a plant. And it's actually so much better, should just stay that way..... Then you don't have to look at the table next to you.
Excellent food with helpful friendly service.
Unfortunately covid distancing does make the restaurant seem a bit barren. but happy to be safe.
Impeccable tastes and superior service made this a memorable dining experience. Safety measures amidst COVID-19 were appreciated and guests adhered to the rules. Thank you Primal.
Outstanding menu and great presentation/taste of food. Very enjoyable meal and experience. Service was a little slow, but understandable with just returning after the Covid shutdown.
