    Fantastic evening at Primal Steakhouse! Johnny was absolutely amazing! He made our evening very special. We had planned this visit for a year for a birthday celebration and everything was truly extraordinary. It’s such a cool place!

    While the menu is short and sweet, you can see the attention paid to the items listed. Both of the appetizers and entrees were absolutely amazing! The location (Boulevard Mall) is a surprising location for such an upscale restaurant.

    Had the bone marrow, scallops, and steak tartar for starters.They weren’t the best I had but they were good. I wish the tartare had the classic egg yolk bc that would have elevated the taste. For mains we had the 50oz tomahawk with fois gras chimichurri and bone marrow sauce, sautéed spinach (surprisingly good) and garlic mashed potatoes (good but basic)I could have done without the sauces. We made the wrong decision to get it cooked medium rare bc it was kinda tough to eat and very sinuey. Definitely get it done medium. It was good but it needs salt. Luckily the chef stopped by our table and he so graciously got us some crystal salt from the kitchen. Let’s just say that simple changes elevated the steak from a 6 to a 8.5. Definitely request for CRYSTAL salt not the salt shaker! The ambiance is definitely the star and the whole experience was not cheap. We paid over $500 for everything so go there for a special celebration.

    I went here based on the amazing reviews. The service and ambience were excellent but the food was just meh. When you are paying a high price you would hope the food would be amazing but that was not my experience. I ordered the sea bass and it was bland, undercooked in parts, and was luke warm not piping hot when it was brought to me. I believe the dish was $58 which is pretty high for fish. The scallops appetizer was just ok as well. I have had so much better for that price especially in Las Vegas.

    Atmosphere was kitschy with bunch of cheap medieval decorations on the walls and mismatched furniture, yet servers wearing workout looking clothes. Prices were on par (maybe a little better) with Strip steakhouses. Cocktails were good but were minimal in amount. Food was very good and most of the desserts are presentation pieces (meaning fire or fog included). Given the location in town can be suspect, not sure I'd recommend to out of town visitors.

    I booked this visit based on reviewers suggestions. Food was good and the manger who came to wait on us while our server was attending his last table was very kind. Steaks were cook according to order. The sides were just ok. Broccolini was roasted, yet not tender. That could be because the steak knives weren't sharp. The portions for sides are personal portions. Dessert was not anything to write home about, with the exception of the crème brûlée. That dessert was the only one that was worth the price point. We had lava cake and quarto leches cake which was literally a two bite cake-that was disappointing. The ambiance is fun and dark and medieval and the drinks were served in fun glasses.

    Primal steakhouse made my family and I want to spend time there. When you initially enter the restaurant, the lighting is very warm and inviting. There was a live violinist there playing the most beautiful music. The food and its presentation was optimal. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed spending our dinner there.

    The overall restaurant experience was decent. The server was excellent and was on top of things for us the entire entire time. My main was that my $85 steak was cold. When I brought it up to the survey, they took it back and said they would make it right. Less than five minutes past that the state came back to me and it was my mistake and I tasted it and it was still not hot. I asked them what they did and they said well we threw it back on the grill for a moment well it’s still not sell it Satisfactory and they said well we’ll do it again and again only a few minutes past and they brought me back my steak and again the temperature never changed. I suggested to the manager that they make me a new piece of meat and this guy said well it’s gonna take another hour and a half to prepare your meal And what do you mean an hour and a half put in the order now and it should just be a normal remake and why would it take an hour and a half to do this? I said I need to speak to your manager finally a gentleman named Evan came down. I explained the situation and he was very nice and understanding and he did, take the dish bill and I was not about to have them make the steak again because evening was already over. I’m glad they took it off. It was not an enjoyable meal and it was my birthday. The rest of the meal was good, but I’m not sure if I would ever go back.

    Service was excellent! Our server, Ariana was just super! We visited with our excellent server, Johnny from our 1st visit. We all remembered each other and our wonderful experience on visit number 1 back last September when we checked out the steakhouse for the first time. The decor is lots of fun. You feel like you've walked into a Game of Thrones dining room. Don't let the fact the restaurant is housed in a shopping mall deter you from visiting. You won't be disappointed. Our only disappointment is that our treat of A5 Waygu was a little overcooked this time. The first time the meat was a perfect medium rare and just amazing. This time the chef seemed to be rushing. The meat was done more medium rather than medium rare. It was seasoned nicely and tasted good but when we visit again we'll be sure to stress medium rare when it's cooked tableside. Sides were excellent and we still had a nice evening!

Waiter was awesome, the manager, “Tiny”, check on us frequently to make sure we were having a good time. The food was amazing and I felt it. It was fairly priced for what we were eating. I will definitely go again.

    My fiancé and I came here for our anniversary dinner and it was amazing! Assistant manager tiny and our server eddie were constantly checking in on us and recommended us some yummy food! We also got an anniversary desert which was cheesecake and it was delicious. The food was amazing and the low lighting and decorations gave the restaurant a warm and romantic ambiance. 10/10 will come back!

    Drei von vier Gerichten waren sehr lecker, ein Steak leider recht trocken. Dessert gut, Service freundlich. Ein Getränk wurde leider vergessen. Fazit: ein gutes Steakhouse, nicht mehr, aber auch nicht weniger. Ambiente dunkel, kein Tageslicht, Ritterrüstungen und Schwerter. Keine Kinderkarte.

    Not an elevated food experience…. Located in rundown neighborhood. Food was not as advertised. Don’t go out of your way expecting amazing food experience! The assistant manager “Tiny” was very nice. But they need chefs who taste their food and check the temps before sending out. Not worth alacarte pricing …. They are way over promoting them selves ….. would never recommend.

    This was a fun spot to eat! Viking themed, it even has a horn cup for their rum punch! We shared a huge tomahawk, my only teensy complaint would be the amount of gristle. The flavor was on point tho and we enjoyed our evening here.
