    Truly outstanding dining experience in every single way. Impeccable service by our waiter, Matthew, as well as a TEAM of staff. I loved the fact that all workers collectively took care of all tables, re-filling drinks before “needed” and catering to the wants and needs of each customer. The food was absolutely “off the charts”…as good as you could ever hope to eat. It is obvious the chefs take great pride in delivering a 5-star meal to their patrons. This was our first time at PRIME 102, but I ASSURE you we will be back SOON. Super special way for us to celebrate my wife’s birthday!!!

    You could make an entire meal from pork belly appetizer, Yukon potato purée and butter cake, and never miss the entree while savoring the favors!!! But if an entree is a must, then a filet with garlic butter….wow!

    We have not been to Prime in about a year. Greatly improved. I like the way they were training waiters. Always had an experienced waiter around, checking on our waiter. Not intrusive and stepping in if she was unsure. Building a fine team. Food was good and drinks were excellent as well. I would recommend this place now for sure.

    Food was excellent. Service was great. Bar staff did an excellent job. Seasonal Burrata was amazing and the Bread Pudding did not disappoint. Only complaint is for the money, presentation could be much better. Steak comes out on a plain white dish. No sauce, no garnish. Nothing. Just meat on a plate for $50??? It just didn’t do justice to the overall dining experience.

    We looked at the menu before we came so we were aware of the prices and we’re ready to pay for good food. My steak was extremely over cooked. My husband’s $130 steak was undercooked and did not taste like we thought a $130 steak would taste. We’ve had much better meals at Saltgrass, The Grove, etc. The presentation was so lacking that I didn’t even post pictures of our meal on Facebook like I usually do. We waited forever for our food. Our server was very sweet but the food was definitely not worth the price. If you’re going to be a steak house you should probably have cooks that understand how to cook a steak….

    Food and service was phenomenal. We were sat at a table right next to. The host stand/stairs didn’t feel like we were actually eating in the restaurant. We also had a table right next to us of guys speaking very vulgarly and loud. Didn’t feel as romantic with my wife as I would have liked it to. Can’t stress enough how great the food and service were. Price was a bit higher than what Id prefer to pay for our portion sizes. It was still a very nice meal and I am thankful for our servers attentiveness and knowledge of the menu.

    A throwback to the feelings of the quo’s and 30’s as located on the second floor of a historic building. Cavernous room with a beautiful,sense,of arrival ascending the massive staircase. Superb service and ambiance. Rib eye was excellent and the Chilean sea bass was outstanding. Butter cake dessert was a real treat. Only disappointment was the side dish. Parmesan and truffle fries was not crispy or very hot. Acceptable wine list at reasonable prices. Really enjoyed the experience

    Every time I visit Prime102, I think that it just can’t get any better. Thankfully, I’m always wrong, because every meal has been astonishing better than the last. Dry aged ribeye and tenderloin for us last night…. With an appetizer of yellow & red beets, goat cheese, thick chunks of bacon, and a couple of other goodies. Peri & Steve always make us feel welcome, and our favorite server (Kalen - whom I’ve named the “Prime 102 Voice of Customer Representative”) is like having one of our daughters serving us. Tyler, Texas hospitality and a world-class chef…. Our favorite place for a date night or a business event!

    We had the NY strip and 45 day dry aged ribeye. Both steaks were great. Service was excellent. The overall experience was great. However, the sides were not great. We had brussel sprouts, mushrooms, and potato casserole. Mushrooms were good. The brussels and potato casserole were sub par, especially for a meal at this price point. In previous visits everything was excellent so I did not say anything. We will go back, but if the sides are not good next time I will probably complain.

    We have been to Prime 102 twice now. It is our new favorite restaurant in Tyler! The staff are professional and friendly, the owner is always there and comes to your table to check on you. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is beautiful. The wine list is not vast but there a quality wines from which to choose. It is not noisy so you don't have to yell in order to have a conversation with your co-diners.

    Comfortable but small bar; I understand they have expanded bars for large functions. Drinks were excellent! Liquor and wine selection very good. Great dining experience! Quiet, but this was a Monday evening. Steaks were perfect, I had the 22 oz. (plenty of leftover) (Note: rare, cool center may be too raw for some. Rare/warm center would be for most.) It is pricy but I think a good value.

    We live in Houston so of course nothing in Tyler could compare. Wrong! Prime 102 as good or better as any in Houston. We started with martinis, made perfectly and nice size. Good bread. Caesar salad and wedge salad both very good. Filet mignon excellent, perfectly cooked, tender, good flavor. My wife had sea bass and said it was as good as any she has ever had. Waitstaff pleasant. Owners present and talked to every table. Fabulous 1930’s Art Deco building and space.

    Dinner was exceptional for a birthday celebration. The food was delicious. Only one side, Brussel sprouts,did not meet our expectations but everything else was top notch! From salad to soup to appetizers to main entree was prepared exquisitely! Kudos to the chef! Matt was our server and meticulously handled every detail with class. The ending of our meal was highlighted by the butter cake! We will return to experience lunch in the future.

    From the time you enter you know you will be taken care of non-stop. Hostess calls you by name and mentions something special from the reservation. As soon as you’re seated, the server is there. Answered all questions about menu items and all ingredients in special dishes (vegetable of the day). We actually had asked for the same waiter that we had before and he remembered where we sat and what we ordered. Justin is the best!

    There were four of us there for dinner to celebrate a birthday. One of the cocktails was incorrect. The lobster mac’n cheese was expensive considering the small portion of lobster that was in it, and the last cocktail ordered never got delivered. This was not our first time eating here, but the focus of the waitstaff seemed to be off last night. The upside is that the steaks were fantastic, the sweet potato casserole was perfect and the butter cake that was brought to my husband for his birthday was good.
