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.

Nice view across the street from the marina I keep my boat so the view gets old but the food is amazing a little pricey that you have to pay for sides separately but definitely a nice place to go once and a while

While the food and dinning atmosphere was superb; we were slightly disappointed with the attention by our server Joseph-

Joseph was not attentive or interactive; as this was our first time at Prime; no mention of specials, reason for visit (Birthday celebration) -

No suggestions on drinks, dessert or steak type - a very basic service that one would not expect from this caliber of restaurant.

Started off rocky with poor valet service after we were told valet was closed, come back in 5 min. But service once inside was great. Hostess was super sweet and was able to accommodate us outside much quicker than we were told. Food was delicious and our waiter was fantastic. Overall great dining experience except for valet - you should keep spots reserved for customers with a reservation.

A group of long time friends get together to celebrate a 60th birthday. We had a nice table under the veranda with a great view of the harbor. Our waiter Mike was informative and attentive without being oppressive. We enjoyed a great meal, the tiger shrimps were cold and crisp, the clams were succulent, the lobster wontons were a nice treat wish they had a bit more sauce drizzled over them. 3 of us got the Delmonico steak, YUM!, the sliced steak sandwich was piled high, the Bronzino, 2 pieces, over spinach was cooked perfectly, and finally the petit filet mignon was a perfect medium rare, the skillet potatoes and grilled asparagus were perfect accompaniments! We had a few refreshing specialty cocktails. We wish we could come more often but it does push our budget a bit, so we save it for special occasions, and are never disappointed. Enjoy.

The place has a great view of the water. The food is always good, the menu is complete with a great choices for everyone. Be prepared to wait a very long time to be seated and fed. We sat an hour after our reservation and we arrived 30 minutes prior to our reservation. Then, our waiter explained to us that the kitchen was backup up after we waited abut 20 minutes for our apps.

We have always been pleased with our experiences at this restaurant, although we usually go for lunch. We had a 7:15 dinner reservation and we waited 10 minutes for the table, fifteen minutes for the server and then over an hour for our entrees. By that time, I just wanted to go home. Our waiter said it was unusually busy but senior management should have apologized and offered us free dessert or something

I know I didn't dress up fancy but I dressed up summery because It is on the water, but they sat me at the very back where no one could see us and they isolated us from the crowd. They will do anything to make them look as high class as possible which I understand, it's a nice place. They are very pretentious and judge you based on your looks, so make sure you're wearing your Louis Vuitton and Red Bottom high heels otherwise you won't be treated as well. (I own all these things BTW and do have money) not impressed. The food was okay, I probably won't go here again. Russo's or Rothmans is a nicer steakhouse

This place is an absolute gem! Why? Well, let's start with how beautiful the restaurant is. Every nook and cranny is a testament to good taste, pretty architecture and comfort!! The view of the harbor is gorgeous and perfect for Summer dining. What else? Glad you asked. The ENTIRE staff....starting with the valets to the very welcoming hostesses, to the talented bartenders to the friendly, professional and accommodating waitstaff who were wonderful to interact with. Lest I forget to tell you about the incredible dishes! My favorites include the watermelon salad, the caramelized fig dish and the fresh, yummy sushi. It is a 45-minute drive from my home to this restaurant....and it is a trek that I gladly will take....totally worth it!!

The service was INCREDIBLY RUDE. The restaurant is filled with policies such as “you can’t be seated until the full party has arrived” even though we had 4 out of 5 people there and many empty tables that we had to wait for 40 mins for. The waiters that we had were both impatient, not at all considerate, and in the end we had to call the manager to solve our dissatisfaction (to which they did not help apologize for the situation at all). Incredibly bad for a restaurant priced at this level. Would not recommend due to terrible management and service. Had an awful time.

Michael... we are regulars at least 5 times a year ... we brought a couple with us for their first visit... they were blown away by the food service and location ... wait staff is excellent. And we enjoyed an after dinner drink and cigar outside ... by far our favorite restaurant... Ciao Gregg Giambrone

I was somewhat surprised that he did not offer anything resulting in the exact opposite of what he said

My wife and I came to Prime for our anniversary. We sat outside on the patio. Prime is a beautiful restaurant, in a beautiful location. It was great sitting outside - amazing views of the harbor. The food was excellent and so was the service. It was a little pricy but we knew that going in.
