Food was great and place was lovely. Server was unfriendly and officious and not helpful. Would like to try again but hopefully with a more welcoming server.
First thanksgiving spending it out in a restaurant and I must say, service was amazing! The staff was so nice, welcoming and incredibly attentive. Our waiter was awesome! Food was phenomenal, as usual. Everything was perfect. Beyond grateful for the amazing service you all provided my family and myself.
Seated next to the kitchen. Had to listen to the manager ranting about the register not working. Thanksgiving dinner was overpriced. Turkey was dry. Cranberry sauce tasted like Vick's Vaporub. For $45, we should have gotten more than a few slices of turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Butternut squash soup for $13 is outrageous. Charging for bread and butter at a high end restaurant is low class.
The food is great, the service is great, the ambiance is great. The prices are sky high, however, and there is a $5.00 charge for the bread.
We went for our anniversary and they took great care of us! First we had a sweet card on the table and then they gave us some champagne to celebrate. We ordered the steak for two and a few sides. All was delicious.
Martinis were watery and had to be sent back - and I never send things back. The menu described 8 shrimp for the Seafood Plateau, but they only delivered 6 and didn’t substitute anything else…and didn’t say anything. Otherwise, was good.
Appetizer was tasteless and steak was pedestrian.
Not worth the price.
Jose our waiter was wonderful! We dine often and we truly believe that the food is getting better and better each time. The drinks are so yummy and I can’t say enough about all the dishes on the menu. A great variety of great food.
Food, ambience and service were all outstanding. One of the top few restaurants in Fairfield Co. Only downside is it’s pricey. I have not been in a couple months - seems like they may have jacked prices up. I’d now recommend for a special occasion, but not for a random night out.
They do it all right but it aint cheap!
Good was delicious! Service was great. The prices were high, but so was the quality.
Wonderful ambiance - excellent and professional service - consistent every time.
I've been a regular customer of Prime for a few years now and I have to say, it NEVER disappoints. The delicious food, gorgeous scenery, chic ambiance, and attention to detail from the staff is unmatched.
However, today I am writing specifically to applaud an outstanding waiter, David.
Last night, for my birthday dinner, was the second time I had the pleasure of getting David as our server...
Simply put, having David at your table truly elevates your entire experience from start to finish.
David has a rare gift of being present, personable, considerate, and so kind, all the while acting quickly and efficiently from kitchen to your table.
If there was a crisis behind the scenes- you would NEVER know it. David appears at your side every few moments to refresh your drink, whisk away an empty plate, give detailed and thoughtful suggestions and even offers to take pictures (if it appears to be a special occasion.)
Service as excellent as David's is becoming harder and harder to find these days, so much so that when you do experience it, you must rave about it!
Bravo to Prime and it's entire staff - but a particular standing ovation for David, who sincerely goes above and beyond for his guests.
10/10 I would recommend that everyone try to have this masterful dinning experience.
Excellent dinner, service and ambiance. The owner generously acknowledged my friends special birthday with a free dessert and gift card. Very classy move! You just gained a new customer!
Amazing food and staff. One of my fiance and I's favorite restaurants!
Food was not very good. They charge you for everything including bread, and everything else is ala carte. Server was constantly trying to upsell us, including water and wine. Service spotty - they wanted us to order in the first 5 minutes and then we went 20 minutes between drinks and ordering. Very loud. A rip off.
I usually go to Prime with just my wife, but tonight we came with my family to celebrate my nephews coming home from the military. Everything was delicious and everyone was on point. The great service made the celebration even more special. Thank you to the staff at Prime for taking pride in your craft.
Wonderful service and food, would definitely celebrate a special occasion there again!
Great food as always. Service was spot on
Our table wasn’t quite ready so Prime treated us to a cocktail!!!! We were happy at the bar regardless!!
Beautiful venue on a bright sunny day.
Their seafood is always excellent and while the restaurant always seems to be completely full for lunch, acoustically, you don't hear the loud thrum of other people. Great atmosphere for either a social or business lunch.
Service was great gave us Enough time to have a business meeting and then relax and have dinner
Very good lunch. Not inexpensive, but it's definitely worth it.
Steak was grizzly; no eggs Benedict on brunch menu and noise level with table behind was horrible.
Prime is the best restaurant, especially for steak, in Stamford. Great vibe, great views overlooking the harbor and attentive service. Great for special occasions or for their reasonable power lunch.
3 of us came to celebrate our birthday and we certainly did. Great drinks, food and birthday dessert. Staff excellent and we loved the attention we received from the Manager.
As always Prime is a destination, not just a restaurant!!
Beautiful setting of water and boats is outstanding!
A mini vacation while enjoying a great meal! Great service! A great place to bring out of towners….
Food was good. View amazing. A little pricey. Slice of cake $16 a bit high albeit delicious
They refused to take our order unless we ordered starters and the main course. We wanted to space out the meal.
The main courses were brought out the moment the cleared the table.
Drinks were made wrong.
The steak wasn’t cooked correctly.
After speaking to the manager our waitress never came back.
I’ve been going to this restaurant for years. I will never go back. It was terrible and the managers didn’t seem to care at all.
The ambience is very nice and contemporary. The servers were very good and attentive. The food is good, specially the gnocchi starter. The crab cake was ok, nothing special for the price. The pricey lobster Cobb salad is ok also. The fillet mignon was good, nothing spectacular. I’m being extra picky because of the price range. Don’t get me wrong, the food is good and the place is nice but at this price they are competing with restaurants like Capital Grille that in my opinion is a better overall restaurant.
We had a great time. The service was terrific, the food was incredible and the views were beautiful.
The food was great! The service and atmosphere excellent!
10 year anniversary dinner. Perfect weather to sit outside, the food was fantastic and our waiter (Walter) was over the top!
Took my mom for her birthday dinner. The restaurant was busier than expected. But the food was great per usual. The steak could have been a little more seasoned for my liking. Overall great experience. I’m definitely coming back. One of my favorite steakhouses in the area.
Prime is the best dining experience in Stamford, certainly for steaks. Overlooking Stamford harbor, indoors or out, it's a fine dining experience with a youngish vibrant crowd. Service was very good, and the bone-in tomahawk rib-eye is awesome. Excellent sides and. a good wine list. It's special occasion prices but worth it.
Service was flawless and atmosphere is great. Bar is excellent however the food is meager at best for the prices charged.
There was sand in the seafood soup and the mussel still had the beard on.
Amazing experience and amazing food
Great food. Pricey. Lovely outside terrace with heat lighting above.
