Enjoyed sinner downtown Friday night out on the patio. Dinner was excellent and the service we had from Hope was outstanding. Nice to be back downtown for dinner
The good: refined and familiar service strategy, multiple staff per table, bread service, etc. Well trained staff, great delivery and presentations.
The not so good: dessert menu presentation was 2 minutes long, reading aloud each menu item. It was a trying way to hard approach to get us to order something we had already requested.
fish (bass) came out overcooked, but flavors were spot on.
steak (midrare) came out well, excellent service to immediately replace
second steak came out raw, cold to the finger touch, with no tissue rendered at all. I did not bring this to their attention, though because I had already filled up on everything else and planned on heating it up the next morning anyway. The corners were cooked enough to where I took a few bites. For the price point, it was just ok. No real good or bad here, basic steakhouse fillet. It hard to do much to a fillet.
Dessert was great, as were the after dinner drinks. Very impressed with how they handled the overcooked steak - I am not a person to send food back, and was hesitant. They made me feel comfortable and exceeded my expectations on the replacement (full garnish, crab, etc.)
Although not on this visit, their burger is incredibly delicious, rivaling most of the famed burgers in town.
Prime is an above average steakhouse with an upscale but casual vibe. I truly believe it can be elevated a bit more for the price point and very close proximity competition, though. Its a place we visit a few times a year but no more.
Prime always has an outstanding menu that is exquisitely executed, professional wait staff, and an upscale yet comfortable atmosphere. We enjoy every opportunity to dine there and did on this occasion, as well.
Sure they don't have A5 Wagyu on the menu, however, their "Ohio" Wagyu is far superior to many $250 steaks I've had at only a fraction of the price. Could literally cut my steak with a coffee spoon. Simply outstanding
Great food, impeccable service. Great dining experience.
We went for our anniversary and loved our experience. We will absolutely return! We loved the spicy margarita and the lobster mac and cheese. Everything was delicious and the service was exceptional.
Delicious, reasonable prices for a downtown lunch. Desserts were fantastic!
Dined outside due to our friend corona. Food was great. Service excellent.
The service was fantastic and for the most part the food was very good. But if you’re going to make a very big show of strongly recommending ordering steaks no more than medium rare because of the quality of your steaks, don’t serve them medium well when the customer orders it medium rare!
Chris and Steven were our servers and provided excellent service. We all ate from the Prix Fixe and we’re not disappointed. Will definitely be back.
Fabulous service, well spaced tables, amazing food.
Great place for happy hour and a date night, food is great and our waitress was wonderful
Our server, Arwa, was amazing. She went above and beyond. We will come back for the food, but especially the service.
All the food (steaks and sides) had a very strong pepper taste.
Good food, great service. Let us eat at our pace and didn’t rush us.
It was wonderful. Prime is our favorite restaurant. We live everything about it. Food, service and staff 😊
Our servers Christopher and Steve took great care of us. Our steaks were excellent!
Salmon was delicious. Steak was very flavorful but a little overdone. Hard to score atmosphere during Covid. There were very few diners and one couple got into argument. They are trying so I will come back and support them.
Amazing service and amazing food !
Wow! We had such a wonderful experience at Prime celebrating my husband's birthday and our anniversary. First off, the restaurant is beautiful. I love the decor and ambiance. The staff personalized our menus to reflect "Happy Birthday I'm upset that I can't remember his name now :( I also appreciated how well the restaurant enforced COVID19 guidelines: all staff was masked, hand sanitizer provided, and tables were placed at a distance (outdoor dining also available). We felt very safe and were even more comfortable enjoying our special evening.
Now the food.... the food was SOOOOOO good! I had the Joyce Farms Chicken which was SUPER good. My husband had the Chilean Sea Bass but we couldn't resist the Wagyu so we shared 4 ounces (4 oz minimum is required but the price is very reasonable for such a prime cut of beef) and were glad that we did. It was DELICIOUS!!! We shared asparagus and the macaroni & cheese (some of the best we've had) but couldn't finish it because we enjoyed our entrees so much.
For dessert, we were given the half baked chocolate chip cookie and also ordered the New York cheesecake. Both desserts were very good. We were stuffed and beyond satisfied when we left. Luckily due to the restaurant's awesome location, we were able to walk it off while enjoying downtown Cincinnati.
I gladly recommend this restaurant; especially when celebrating a special occasion. They definitely spoil you! We'll gladly return when in the area again. Kudos to the Prime staff!
Great service. Attentive and friendly staff with a very nice dinning space both quiet and enjoyable. Filets were nice but nothing exceptional as far as taste or presentation. A bit pricey even for downtown. Overall nice.
Great meal. Excellent service. The waygu is the best I’ve had. Sides were fantastic.
waiter did offer then forgot bread. Overall, service and food was very good. Covid impacts to layout and masks - I understand but not used to it.
Food was great as usual. We opted for the outdoor seating due to covid-19, atmosphere was nice and quiet. Waiters were attentive and very courteous. Will definitely return soon.
Wow. This place had such amazing food. One of the best steaks I’ve ever had. The service was impeccable and the place as a whole was just beautiful.
Great Service, amazing food. Very fancy, dress up if you go.
As always, our meal was outstanding. Service was impeccable. The entire staff is following COVID-19 safety recommendations perfectly.
Made reservations for an anniversary dinner.
Big complaint is that they set us in the bar on a cocktail table.
Amazing wait staff. Not noisy at all. The food was filling
The food is always delicious. Staff are very attentive and this place is always a hit!
The filet mignon was excellent and the parmesan risotto was amazing.
The food was everything I was hoping for. My steak was prepared perfectly. I had a great experience.
Prime never fails to deliver. The food never disappoints! The atmosphere is relaxing. I can always depend upon the staff to be diverse and attentive.
We return for great steak, excellent sides, and very nice salads. The half price bottle of wine is a plus too.
Very nice experience for Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week. High quality food and amazing service. If the soup de jour is the Cream or Mushroom, you’d be dumb to pass it up!
Wonderful Birthday celebration for my daughters 21st birthday. We all chose to order from the Pris Fixe menu for restaurant week. Filets were grilled to perfection! Scallop appetizer was delicious, and the crab dip appetizer was perfect start to our meal. Wonderful food, staff and atmosphere. Quickly becoming my favorite restaurant in Cincy!
I don’t have anything to say about my recent visit.
We were celebrating Father’s Day and a birthday. Every element of our experience was exceptional. The service team was great and the food was outstanding!
Steak was overcooked.
