    Dinner was good. I couldn't give anything five stars, but it was good. For the price, I wanted to be knocked out and amazed, but it was just good.

    An overall very pleasant evening experience. Appetizers were all quite good, the scallops, meatballs, and crabcake. The lamb chops and the New York strip were both excellent-perfectly prepared. The gnocchi‘s were quite disappointing. Very nice wine list but unfortunately martini was poorly prepared. Service was quite nice and professional. Certainly would visit again.

    Food was ok. Steaks were not cooked exactly correct. One was over done, the other under done. Both ordered medium. For two over $50 steaks expected much better. Honestly I’ve had better cooked steaks at Texas Roadhouse. Service was great, and desserts were good. Got a little loud with a group of people waiting on the vestibule, once they were seated in their private section it was better.

    We are on a two day celebration of our 38th anniversary. Prime knew that and the menu said Happy Anniversary on it. They also gave us a complimentary dessert. Both our meals were superb. I particularly enjoyed my Burrato salad and my husband said his crab cake was excellent. My lamb chops were cooked to perfection. Our servers were efficient and friendly and knowing we had a 630pm event they served us quickly but not rushed. Very happy with dining experience

    It was my daughters birthday and we were taking her to see Hamilton. The food & cocktails were amazing. The service was stale & lackluster. I would prefer a cardboard box serve. I never tip less than 20 % so I ensured our server received fair compensation but I’ll try out the other options when we are in town next.

    It was outstanding service from time I arrived to the the time I left. It was my fiancé Birthday and they had a nice touch on the menus that said Happy Birthday. The live band was an additional bonus and that put the icing on the cake. This was our first time here and definitely will not be our last. Cincinnati Prime you are by far the best service I have encountered….Thank you!!!!

    Prime would love to be a big boy fine dining restaurant but wobbly tables and dull steak knives, that rip instead of cut, are just a couple of the little details they lack before competing in the big leagues. The service was good, the food was okay but not worth the price.

    We had reservations and got seated immediately. We had two servers assigned to us, our server and his assistant, and they both made sure we had everything we asked for and more. They were careful to not make us feel rushed when they heard we had theater tickets. They took our order and had drinks to us quickly as well as our appetizer and delicious bread. My husband had paella and I had Hawaiian ahi tuna. We both said we would definitely order the same again. It was a shame we were too full for dessert, as they sounded simply delicious.

    Easily the worst steakhouse in Cincinnati. Sorry. We won’t be back. Never have I had to send a dry martini back. It was like it sat in the shaker with ice for ten minutes before it was poured. The atmosphere was very generic and not sexy. The steaks were ok, thin for an expensive steakhouse, lacked a good crust, and definitely not worth the price. Nickel and dime menu, charging extra money for bernaise, peppercorn sauce? I couldn’t believe how much we spent there for the experience we had. Absolutely ridiculous. Maybe food cost through the roof, but, at least do better plating and killer sides? Again the sides were “ok,” nothing to write home about. The service was good, and I really feel for the staff as they work hard. The whole place is just generic feeling. So many regrets as we drove home, feeling unsatisfied. It’s across the street from the best restaurant in Cincinnati, so, yeah.
