    I’ve been to this restaurant many times over the years and I appreciate the consistency they offer. The fillet melted in my mouth and the lobster bisque is always a favorite. The Godiva crème brûlée and an espresso made a lovely end to the meal. Then we had one more drink in the bar and listened to the lovely Marla serenade us. The staff were very professional and knowledgeable about the menu. We never had to look for them. They checked in with us at the perfect intervals.

    We went for our anniversary. We were greeted nicely, had our names on our menu, and had a nice drink and appetizer. Then things took a turn for the worst. Our server kept saying there was a bachelorette party he was taking care of so we suddenly became forgotten with empty drink glasses, a super late salad, and bread. Server recommended the Wagyu ribeye, saying it was the best. It was fatty, and did not live up to the hype especially for $120. The experience left us underwhelmed for the $250 tab we spent.

    Had the late reservation at 1:45 pm for lunch. Being they close at 2 they still treated my partner courteously, we sat at the bar. However they did forget to check me in for open table. Being the only two dining, the service was prompt. The server/bartender was very polite and helpful! To not take too much of the closing time we Ordered the Calamari which was delicious. The lobster bisque, which was a little heavy and lack luster, and Caesar salad. My partner had a dirty martini (very well made). The ambience was cool being lunch time…it seems to Definitely be a place to have a great business dinner.

    This place seems to be hit or miss, I don’t know what it is. Granted, i asked for rush service as we were running late for the opera, but that would mean food might be undercooked not overcooked. Our octopus were rocks and plated very unappetizingly, we sent it back. We were vindicated because even the chef agreed and the manager took it off the bill as well as comped our beverages. Fine and thank you. I asked for a combination of 2 different plates on the menu which was honored: Lobster and the sides accompanying the salmon. The lobster was overdone and from South Africa. I should have known not to order it—i never have luck with South African Lobster unless I’m in South Africa. Whatever, i dipped it in butter. Butter makes everything better. Our server was phenomenal, VERY accommodating to our request for quick service and very apologetic for the bad food. The manager might have fixed our bill but s/he never came over to speak to us about it. The restaurant was nearly empty so it’s not like they were busy. Might, might not, give it another chance. Overall—if you don’t mind a crap shoot on your dinner food give it a try. My son did say the wagyu was fantastic last time we were there. Oh and DON’T get the dulce de leche cake, it’s a “take” on the Mexican dessert NOT the real deal if you’re looking for the soaked version you’ll definitely be disappointed; stick to the ice cream that’s pretty hard to mess up. The opera was brilliant and we made it just in time!

    The staff at Prime is phenomenal. Service is top notch. Unfortunately the food left much, much to be desired. Our steaks were Luke warm, the hollendaise has a film from sitting too long. We had the cream spinach (one of my fave dishes here) but this time the squash was warm and the spinach was cold. It was disappointing and overpriced.

    Waitress only came by four times during our dining service. Just for the first drink (couldn’t find her to get a refill) to drop off the food however order was wrong, to bring out the correct order and then the check . Usually for a business meeting I can get in and out 45 minutes at the most. We were there for over an hour and waited for 10 minutes after we didn’t have any food or drink to get our bill. We only had a soup and salad and sandwich not overly complicated
