    We chose Prime over our usual Sante Fe restaurant for my husband’s birthday dinner and Expected a little attention by staff considering it was his birthday however none was given. Service was lacking and slow. Waiter was cut and dry and we didn’t get that welcoming feeling. Food was very good unfortunately I will hesitate to dine at prime because of the poor service. and as for special occasions I will not recommend Prime.

    The volume of music was way too loud and not the type of music for a romantic dinner date. The food was good, but a bit pricey. The charge for bread was ridiculous.

    The food was pretty good. My husband and I ordered steak and they were both a bit overcooked and not very tender. Have had better steaks elsewhere. Place was a bit noisy for me but may be enjoyable for others. Not a good place to have a nice quiet dinner and enjoy good conversation with friends because of this, in my opinion. Overall, an okay experience.

    It took a long time for our drinks/food to be serve. I understand there is a staff shortage but it was unacceptable how much time we had to wait. We had ask for a bottle before we ordered dinner but the waiter didn’t bring it until after we had received our dinner. Our dinner was also cold by the time we got it. Only nice thing we can say is that they brought a beautiful cheese cake for our birthday celebration.

    Food and service is very high quality- warm bread and butter came out quickly and our drinks followed. Appetizer shrimp bisque and roasted corn was very good . Steaks perfectly cooked and all on point- bone in ribeye filet, petite filet, and sides- truffle mac and cheese, asparagus. Mostachon cake shareable for desert. The only issue was the table they offered us is a booth in a dark corner , with poor lighting ( we sat there on a previous occasion and had to use our phone flashlight in order to see the menu) and away from the lively ambiance of the rest of the restaurant. Even with a reservation, we had few choices of where we could sit, eat and enjoy a great meal at this otherwise nice restaurant. The owners would benefit by changing the lighting and integrating this area more appropriately into the rest of the otherwise great dining option.

    Went with the Chicago steak, was well cooked and seasoned well, but the steak was frozen for too long. Texture of the steak was lost and was almost mushy. Not worth the price since you’re paying top dollar. Everything else was top tier quality, great service, delicious sides, and the free bread that was provided was really good. They’ll always make sure you have water, and tend to your every need. Aside from the over expensive steak, it was a great experience!

    First timers, was expecting a more intimate setting. Very loud music the whole time. Mariachis showed up I’m guessing for a private party. Food took almost an hour to get and our sides took another 5 minutes after. Probably won’t dine there again, but possibly go for a drink and sit at the bar instead. I felt I was at a bar and grill rather than a fine dining place.

    Server spilled a glass with water on the table while trying to refill my sons glass. My wife was given the wrong steak temperature. She asked for medium and was give rare and got grossed out. Told server to take off of tickets and Said the female manager was not going to take it off cause she saw that my wife ate more than half. The manager never approached our table and she just had one bit and didn’t eat the rest. They wanted to offer us a measly piece of cheese pie worth about $4. The steak was a $40 dollar under cooked steak. So disappointed with this high end so called steak house. Very poor customer service. Don’t recommend.

    My steak was asked to be medium rare and came out extremely rare. When i asked it to be brought to temperature it was simply re-heated. While I can deal with a rare steak, some fundamentals in steak cooking were missed. It was still tough and have white lines of sinew because it wasn’t exposed to heat properly exposing that the steak wasn’t just rare l, it was undercooked. The sides were nothing special. H‑E‑B style Mac and cheese and plain asparagus. For those who any interest in wine be prepared to pay way over price for the bottles they provide. A 29 bottle of wine will cost 80-90 dollars at this location. 200 percent increase for middle/bottom shelf wine isn’t something I’m into. To be clear here I love a good meal and will pay for it. I have no problem paying for a meal I really feel I can’t get anywhere else, but I truly felt like I’m paying for the owner to cover the lease on the location than food that is exquisite. For a place that is a steak house I was extremly disappointed. I am a big believer in paying for what you want, but an undercooked steak, basic sides, overpriced wine, left me wanting more. If you’re a “foody” and understand what a well balanced and delicious meal is then you will be left wanting more from this place. Ultimately our region has limited private “high end” restaurants and it appears that all of them in the McAllen area are taking advantage of the lack of competition by giving lack luster food and extremely high prices. If I ever decide to give them another chance I hope they read this and know that they can do better. In the hospitality business you owe it to your customer and there hard earned money they are willing to spend at your location. Do better Prime. Do better RGV restauranteurs.

    Prime is a really high end restaurant trying to be a sports bar. With TVs on either side of the bar it raises the noise level to where my Wife and I had trouble conversing. They should scrap the TVs and focus on their great food and service. Appetizers were meals in themselves. Aged steaks, lamb, lobster Thermador to die for. Bar has extensive selections including Wellers bourbon and 30 year old McAllen Scotch. Great place to go for that special occasion.

    I ordered the Beef Wellington and ordered it medium rare and came medium well. The mashed potatoes had no seasoning, the best bite on the plate were the broccolini. The temperature in the dining room was very warm and uncomfortable. Overall, I expected a better dining experience especially for the price. Food totally lacked flavor and seasoning. I’ll just stick to my favorite Bohanans in San Antonio. Don’t waist your money.
