My food, and my date's food were outstanding. Great steak. The Brussel sprouts could have been baked a tad longer, The whiskey sour was a little weak. But all in all, I consider it outstanding.

If you are looking for the finest quality food and service then Prime is the place! I enjoyed the Prime bone-in Ribeye which was the best cut of meat I have had and was cooked to perfection! My guest had the sea scallops which were big and fresh. Adam our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and steered us in the right direction. Don’t forget to try their chocolate bread pudding!

Been to Prime several times now on business meetings and date night with my wife. Had the pleasure of having Adam being our server each time. He’s excellent and always takes good care of all of his tables. Food was wonderful as always. Tried the stuffed mushrooms this time and they were some of the best we’ve ever had which is something as we travel a lot.

We came here because we received a gift card from our kids. Made a weeknight reservation to avoid a crowd which, it turned out, was unnecessary since we were the ONLY diners that evening in addition to two people at the bar. We have never seen a completely empty restaurant in Delray Beach, even off season. Adam, our server, was very attentive and allowed us time to review the food and wine menus (I believe he would have been that accommodating even with multiple tables). Selected our bottle of wine and started with roasted beets & feta and poached pear and baby arugula salads. Well presented and tasty. My husband ordered veal saltimbocca that he deemed delicious; not so much for my veal chop milanese which was pounded beyond thin, was over breaded and dry as the desert; parts of the breading looked as if they hadn't even hit the pan. The only real meat I tasted was that around the base of the bone that couldn't be pounded. The server and manager came over, possibly overhearing how disappointed I was, and offered to bring lemon. It was a nice gesture but didn't help much. Even the manager commented that he needed lemon with this dish. Shouldn't be that way.
Perhaps we will return to give them a second chance but in all honesty cannot recommend until I come up with a better experience.

We chose Prime as a venue to celebrate our anniversary, never having been here, but impressed by the reviews on Open Table. Upon entering this magnificent restaurant, we were greeted by Merrett, who not only wished us a Happy Anniversary, but seated us at a special corner table he had reserved for us. Adam was our polished & handsome server, who treated us like royalty throughout the meal. Merrett reappeared several times throughout the evening to check that everything was to our liking, & graciously took photos of us to capture our memories. He was astute at helping us choose our wine to accompany dinner. We shared an ample & delicious wedge salad, filets that were outstanding, accompanied by savory & unique vegetables. We chose the special chocolate oreo cheesecake, which was delivered to our table with flaming sparklers, a thoughtful gesture to our celebration of 53 years. It was truly a pleasure dining at Prime, & we will definitely return. Elegant dining at its best!

I had the filet medallions with mushroom risotto. There is no way in this world that those medallions are filet mignon. There was so much fat and gristle that I only swallowed a few tiny morsels of actual meet. I still can’t believe that I was discreetly spitting out almost my entire dinner into my black cloth napkin. The risotto was a little flavor list, but not too bad. So disappointed

A party of 6 (originally 8), I was immediately impressed by the willingness to reallocate seating, and the overall feeling of ‘welcome’, from the hostess to the general manager to the bartender. Dining there for the first time (part of Delray restaurant week), the good feelings were reinforced and amplified by both the quality of the food and highly attentive service. Served from the twilight menu, normally available until 6:30, there were a ton of choices. Our party had a couple of veal dishes, branzino, and short rib rigatoni, and all were outstanding, with large portions and great taste. I went for a special dessert - Oreo coated fried cheesecake, and it’s decadence was worth it. Finished off with some world class coffee.

Will definitely return.

There are lots of good restaurants in Delray Beach. Prime is a great restaurant. The food, service and surroundings are more on par with New York City quality, but have not lost that relaxed Florida feel. The general Manager is hands on, closely supervising each customer’s experience, and it shows in the quality level.

When in Delray, we’re going to Prime.

We went during Delray restaurant week for the Lobster-night and couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised! The Maine lobsters were incredible. They have a special on them
every Wed night until it becomes stone crab season which I believe is October.
The service was perfect. Our server Adam was very helpful with recommendations and very attentive to our needs. The manager named Merit was also great he showed us the nightclub in the back of the restaurant that is open Friday-Saturday evenings only but looks like a fun place to go after a dinner of steaks @ Prime. We will definitely return again soon to this restaurant.

If you love lobsters, you can't beat Prime for the best deal around. 3 lobsters for $39.95. Cooked perfectly and complimented by steamed corn and potatoes, it's like you're in New England.

Service is always top notch and the manager is very courteous. Highly recommend Prime for it's specials as well as its full menu.

The menu was nice and the food, well cooked...however, the music was far too loud for the entire duration of our meal. I am someone who goes to many music and dinner venues in the northeast from Boston to New York to Baltimore to DC because I am a jazz pianist myself, and this was easily the loudest “jazz” piano player I’ve ever heard. He was playing with home recordings by himself which were the source of his problems. No control over dynamics within that space moment to moment. The food was good, but my boyfriend had a splitting headache after from the music and he and I go to jazz bars more than once a month together.

It was a pleasant evening. Salad was split and excellent We decided to split the entree also, as I cannot finish a full meal. So we selected the 12 oz Filet which was very tasty. We did feel the prices were a little steep for the meat as other places offer the same cut of Filet at a lesser price. Again - we did enjoy it. Also ordered the Fing-a-ling as a side. They were roasted and plenty to share for at least 4 people. I ordered a Cucumber Martini drink which was quite ample and was good.
