American
Designed to reflect a classic boathouse along the Charles River, Prime’s multi-level visual expanse is just the beginning of this destination experience. Dedicated to the expression of modern American cuisine, Prime is the flagship of the Bohlsen Restaurant Group. A custom designed glass wall in the center of our Main Dining Room is an artistic balance to the shimmer of Huntington Harbor just outside our doors. Spend an afternoon in the comfy wood Lounge, compete with a fireplace and luxurious leather couches. Venture out to the fire pit on our intimate Fantail, reminiscent of a boat’s bow. Exquisite water views from the Wave Bar or enjoyed while dining on the covered and seasonally enclosed Porch are a perfect backdrop when sipping Prime’s extensive list of refined signature cocktails.

6 people three couples the food was poor. Service by waiter was fine it’s not his fault the food was messed up, we asked for food a certain way and it came out wrong. The restaurant management did take money off the bill and a gift card for next time but my wife won’t step foot in the place again and I’m not going by myself. The meal was a disaster it was a 745 reservation and food was served almost by 10pm. My meal and my wife’s were raw when we asked for well done steak so everyone was almost finished with their meal when ours was served.

The filet mignon was alittle over cooked , the mashed potatoes has so much butter in them they were yellow. By boyfriend had the Halibut and he didnt like it at all. For what my boyfriend spent for dinner that night , it was not worth what he paid for . Even if it was cheaper we wouldnt go back . The restaurant is highly overrated.

My girls and I have made Prime in Huntington “our place” for our holiday GNO’s. (Girls’ Night Out) It was especially special to be seated in Joe’s section! 7 years of going to Prime for our holiday dinners with the girls we usually have Awesome Joe assisting to all our intricate needs. It was truly nice to see a familiar and friendly face. He made awesome suggestions on appetizers and was always quick to replace our empty alcoholic beverages. Great time as always.

My fiance booked Prime for my birthday dinner. We absolutely love Bohlsen and figured this experience would be no different. We've been to every restaurant in the Bohlsen Restaurant Group and have always loved the food, experience and service level that came with the name. However, we will not be back as this was the WORST dining experience we have had in years. Our server was Joe and his lack of care showed. He barely stood at our table for more than a minute at any given time, we had to ask him to let us order as we had waited about 25-30 minutes before even getting our appetizer in. Our drinks took 15-20 minutes to get to our table and it was a wine and a beer. Nothing too crazy to serve! Our food arrived and was sub par at best, not what we expected after having amazing meals at H20, Teller's, Verace and Monsoon. He however went above and beyond for the table of 8 next to us, as we clearly watched him open bottle after bottle of wine, bring them everything they needed, serve it in the most beautiful way. So we know that he can be a good server, it's just that he clearly picks and chooses. He clearly knew his tip would be larger for them so he ignored the other table of three women next to us, and our table of two. It's a sad sight to see as I would have felt better to know he was ignoring everyone, but much to our distaste we saw the fanfair he put on for his larger group and it was evident. I mean he didn't even bring us steak knives, we sat with our food till a nice food runner saw and brought utensils over to us. Sad to see that not every Bohlsen carries the same service level, but we won't be back. Don't waste your time, it's clearly overrated.

Warm, comfy dinning experience. Very attentive service. Food off the charts.
Crab cake, gnocchi, wedge salad fabulous starts.
All four of us had lobster, taken out of the shell and poached in butter; yummy.
Deserts too were special; managed to share three even though we were thoroughly stuffed: creme brulee,
fudge cake and a smores desert.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

Our group of 4 or 5 have been coming here for several years. The views out to the water are peaceful and soothing in all seasons. Sometimes the food is good, other times very good. The service is always reliable, thorough, informative, and courteous. This time I spoke with the sommelier who was informative, pleasant, and (based on my own wine studying) right on the mark. It is always a courteous professional touch to offer a free dessert to the birthday person; as it turns out we gather here together to celebrate each others' birthdays so the dessert is more than a nice tough, it has become a tradition among us. The shrimp and lobster wontons were crisp on the outside and perfect on the inside. I think our table was happy with the food but a friend and I didnt find the burger particularly juicy this time, nothwithstanding its being a combo of good cuts. All in all, we will keep returning.

Love this place. Came for the beef wellington we had on a previous visit and it was great as usual. Crab cake, and shrimp and lobster wontons app was equally amazing. We will for sure be back. Price is not for everyone, but if you can afford it, you will not be disappointed.

On this night there was a boat show with all sorts of vessels lit up with Christmas lights. It was also a very cold night for the day after Thanksgiving. The bar was packed and the scene was vibrant with many fun seekers looking to get closer to the bar or the scene outside. For those who chose to go outside, it wouldn't have been enjoyable for too long so, unfortunately, for many having dinner inside, there was a light cold breeze. Some customers kept their jackets on; others seemed to do without and were chilled like their wine or cocktail.


In all, the festivities passed and the bar scene, still vibrant, was no longer crazed. More parties filled the tables and the restaurant warmed. The food was delicious and our waitress made our evening as enjoyable as she could given the chill in the air in the restaurant. Again, there was a coolness we're not used to at this time of the year. We enjoyed our appetizer, drinks and entrees - all were prepared to our liking. We will be back but may choose to stay away if we consider Prime for a late Friday in November.

The food and service at Prime were excellent, as usual. However, the cost for food has become too high, somewhat excessive. These are prices that I would expect to pay at a trendy Manhattan eatery, not on Long Island.

My absolute favorite restaurant on Long Island. Went here last night (again) for restaurant week and it always surpasses expectations. My waiter Joe was most helpful with the wine pairings and engaged my wife and I in fun conversation the entire night. Delicious food, spectacular ambiance, and attentive staff. Nothing better!

Normally when I go to Prime for dinner, it must be a very special occasion. Dinners are quite expensive. But their lunch menu is very affordable and you get all the perks of a 5 star restaurant. The ambiance is extraordinary. And our waiter was also over the top. He saw we were celebrating (very quietly I might add) one of my friend's birthdays. He brought over a dessert on the house with a candle. AND he also gave my friend a $25 gift card to be used at another sitting. We really had a 5 star experience.

Not my first visit, but always expect to be impressed. The ambiance is always fantastic, and the craft cocktails are great. The waiter did not seem knowledgeable enough about the menu, and made a poor suggestion. We had to send the steak back and wait a LONG time for the new one to come out. Management was exceptional. They visited the table twice and were commuted to making it right which made us feel much better. We will likely return.

As soon as you walk in the door, you know that you are in for a dining experience. The restaurant is dimly lit and beautifully decorated with a lot of glass, to be able to see the depth of the facility. The wait staff is very professional and personable. The wine list is extensive, yet they could delve into the smaller regions of California wines. Both white and red wine was served at the perfect temperature. You don't get that at many restaurants. The gnocchi with parmesan-white truffle sauce was excellent, with a crispy sear of the gnocchi. The Porterhouse for two was served exactly done to our liking. The Pan Seared Tuna was perfectly seared and the soy butter, cauliflower and mushrooms exploded the taste. Everything was served at the proper temperature and tasted wonderful. We were not rushed through the meal. The entire evening was pleasurably enjoyed and we highly recommend Prime.
