    The service was fantastic. The drinks were tasty. The food could have been better. The Mac and cheese was not good. It didn't have a good cheesy taste to it.The pork chops were a bit too charred. I would try it again and order another meal. The service is what would bring me back to try this place one more time

    Food was delicious with great value especially considering it is a steakhouse. Had round-the-clock service including the manager himself checking in making sure things went well. I highly recommend due to its wide variety of tasty options, particularly their angus beefs. Make sure to the attend Unexpected!

    Relaxed but classy environment with excellent service, knowledgeable staff, and quality food. Our server was patient, personable, and attentive without being overbearing. They even printed custom menus with our names and a “Happy Anniversary” message for us. This was our first visit and we can gladly say we will be back. Shared between us were two cocktails, an appetizer, main course of 1-6oz fillet and 1-16oz delmonico ribeye, three sides (scallop roasted potatoes, creamed spinach, and truffle Mac and Cheese). We also shared a dessert. Price was as expected at ~$290. Excellent establishment. Next time we will enjoy an espresso and cigar on the patio after supper.

    Food was good but not excellent like I would expect for $55/plate. Steaks were burned on the outside. It would be cheaper and just as good to go to Outback. Ladies' Bathroom was in disrepair. Missing a sink, one stall out of order. missing soap in one dispenser, no paper towels.

    Food was phenomenal! I splurged and got the wagyu ribeye, which was as tasty a steak as i’ve ever had with a delicious crust. Not one item we ordered was lacking in any way. Our service was excellent, and we would go back in a heartbeat.

    Prime is always a great place to go before a show at the Aronoff. There is valet parking, it is very close to the Aronoff and the food is excellent. We had the deviled eggs appetizer which was quite delicious, followed by very good French Onion soup, the garlic chicken (only ok) and 4oz of the Wagu filet which was absolutely excellent. We also had the baked potato, loaded on the side and the potato was great except they chose a not so tasty beer cheese as the "cheese" part of the loaded and it was not at all tasty - definitely skip the cheese, and the bacon tasted a bit like it came out of a bag of crumbled bacon rather than house made. The meal really was delicious and I would definitely recommend Prime just avoid the beer cheese especially as part of the loaded potato.

    Amazing Christian and the hosts are the reason why we will come back. Christian was not the head server but he should be a great individual with a great personality and professionalism, organization just a great all-around server which they are hard to find he is one of a kind he is a rare server from the moment we sit down he brought out our appetizer, salads, and soup, entree, and desserts he did it all the head sever took our order show us the different steaks and explained each cut of meat and dyed aged of each steak and then drop off the check and that was it. The host is amazing fromm the time you first walk into the restaurant even when you are sitting down they check on you on how your experience is they are wonderful and the guy's suit was fantastic he was just a great individual who was polite, nice, friendly he showed so much hospitality and helping me Find the bathroom and also walked back to see my seat but my feet hurt so bad came back from the bathroom.

    The filet and maple bourbon bacon Brussels sprouts are always superb. The apple old fashioned was fantastic. Definitely keep that one on your seasonal rotation! We been here many times and will certainly be back many more as long as the food, service, price, and atmosphere continue at this level.

    Service brought my overall rating down. Overall, food was average for the price. Service was slow. We received our appetizer before our drinks. When we ordered our entrees, server asked if we wanted bread before the entree, we said sure, then had to remind them about it. Probably won’t go back. Other, better steakhouses in the area.
