Waiter messed up our drinks and as far as our meal my sister is allergic to shellfish so we ordered the truffle Mac and cheese instead of the Lobster she brings it out we specifically asked again this isn’t lobster she says yes then proceeded to the next table I took the first bite and a huge piece of lobster comes out Completely Unacceptable

My friends and I went for Brunch and upon walking in, we fell in love with the decor; while appreciating the spacing and safety precautions during these times of COVID-19. The staff was friendly, attentive and personable. The food and drinks were delicious and we were dancing in our seats to the music. I’m planning on returning for a date night. I highly recommend Prime 39!

My meal was delivered after my party received their meals. They completed eating by the time I received my meal. I was given a complimentary dessert ( a whopping $9.00 for a meal of $258.00. I ate by myself.

Restaurant needs to work on their service and music. Took forever to get served. Waiter never even came back to ask if wanted another drink or anything. The mussels were definitely delicious, only good thing.

I wanted to love this place it’s beautiful … food just ok, I ordered the raw oysters for an appetizer all the oysters had shell pieces in them… so I think that just set the tone for the rest of the meal

Food was not worth the price. Manager did his best to accommodate us, but he kept asking us if any waiter came to wait on us. They did not. He ended up being our waiter. We did not know that menu was pre-fixed which was disappointing. We were very disappointed.

Pros: nice music and great ambience

Cons: Waited over an half an hour on high chairs just for a drink order, high chairs uncomfortable, food came out an hour after we arrived and was almost cold, charge too much for the food you receive.

Overall: They didn’t not deserve the 20% gratuity placed on the final bill for the service that was provided. I will give the manager credit for trying to make the situation better. We will not recommend this place based on our first time there.

Tried it after an advertisement popped up on my phone. Needed to Different place to try not far from home. Nice atmosphere and easy street parking. Online reservation was easy. Seating was comfortable with enough light to see your food. It wasn’t crowded but it took a long time before a waiter came with a menu and just as long to come back to take our order. It’s a big on cocktails place but I’m not. But when the steaks came they were worth the wait. Real steakhouse quality. Perfectly done and melt in your mouth

After speaking to the manager, the DJ’s music was turned down to an acceptable moderate level. Volume was too loud at first and our waiter could not hear our orders.

I wanted to really love this restaurant experience but I didn't. Service was slow, music was good but way too loud and although the food tasted good, it was not hot, nor was it prepared as we requested.

My wife and I are looking forward to going back to try more appetizers and entrees . We tried the mussels/garlic along with the crab cakes wich was a fantastic combination . Entrees were NY strip steak and Wild caught Salmon with a jerk sauce added in to pineapple salsa . We both had wine, but the drink menu was very interesting and we are going to try that next time . Very nice place .

I can only give a review for the Brunch session. The food was decent, but as other reviews have mentioned the service was terrible. We arrived at 1:00PM for our reservation, but did not get our first glass of water until 1:30PM (because we had to ask for it). There was a table of 14 directly behind us who were extremely loud and disruptive. We were all placed so close together that there were no other seat for our party to move to get away from the noise. Also, my daughter had to firmly ask them to get our food and drinks that we asked for. Not to mention, we were given a 90 minute time limit to eat prior to our food arriving. Really? In closing, I would suggest you order take out from this place.

The food was great but I unfortunately I had to enjoy it outside in the middle of the street. I had reservations for 6pm and was told I couldn’t dine in the restaurant because I was wearing a dress with slides/flats and it was against their weekend dress code. That’s totally understandable but that was NOT mentioned on Openable or on Primes website when booking. It only says “No baseball caps or athletic wear allowed”. Security named R.A even admitted we were right and said “The server acts up and it should state that, we are working on it’, basically it was the restaurants mistake. Had we’ve known I would have worn heels or the proper attire.

Since my party of four (Including a baby in a stroller) already ventured to Lynbrook and was set on trying this Black owned steakhouse, we stayed. We were sat outside with no type of steakhouse ambiance and had to listen to live music from another restaurant across the street. Not a great Friday night vibe at all. Our helpful bartender even tried to reason with the manager for us to dine indoors. Once again the food was great, our server was good but don’t punish your paying customers for YOUR mistake. If you want to uphold your rules, follow through .

Waitress had little to no customer service skills, appeared to be rushed and unable to engage in conversation about recommendations on food or drinks. Received lobster mac and cheese lukewarm/cold in a skillet, asked for it to go back to the kitchen, but it took so long we had to tell waitress to remove from the bill. Never checked to see of we wanted an additional drink and informed us that we had to order appetizers, drinks and dinner all at the same time because, “that’s just how it is”. I’ve been to several premium steakhouses and this place does not meet the standard in regards to different variety of quality steak or how it is prepared. Hostess greeting you at the door was professional and welcoming.
