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:)

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!

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.
Never again.

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.

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!

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.

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.
