Our waiter, ROBERT, was outstanding, professional, and a credit to your restaurant. He attended to our every need. ROBERT went above and beyond to see we had a wonderful experience. Ask him about his search for Irish Mist. Thank you very much.

This was our first time here and we look forward to going back. Everything was so lovely and the hostess and manager were so nice and accommodating. It was refreshing to find a restaurant that remembers to value the customer and welcomes them with warmth and friendliness. We enjoyed the bar which is beautiful and the dining experience was very good too. The truffle mac was amazing!
What a beautiful restaurant with incredible customer service. Like old style steakhouses that give only top notch service! Will go back soon!

Restaurant was 1/2 full when we sat down to celebrate a birthday (special occasion was shared in advance of dinner, when we confirmed the dinner by phone day-of, and when we arrived at the front desk). The server Johnnie Lee was pleasant and drinks were ordered and delivered promptly. That’s where it went downhill. Food was undercooked, wait time in between courses was longer than the server anticipated, and they forgot the birthday celebration. Even the check took a while to be delivered.

The manager and server both apologized, but not the five-star we read and heard about by any means, the birthday was an afterthought all evening.

Our reservation was at 7:30. Seated promptly and got our cocktails. Appetizers came quicky and then we waited a LONG time for entrees. Entrees were luke warm at best...clearly our food had been sitting under the heat lamps, sauces were dried out, salads were wilted. Pretty disappointed.

Went for Valentine’s Day special menu. Was looking forward to a romantic dining experience in the beautiful main dining room but was seated outside on the patio. I was told the dining room was for reservations only. Isn’t that what I made on open table? No inside tables were available. Went along with it but should have left once seated. The folding chairs are uncomfortable, table was uneven, candles not lit and young server could not light kerosene wick after several attempts. Patio heater nearby was rolled away to another table —-it was breezy and got chilly just sitting for an hour—-never asked if were ok with heater being moved.
Music choice overhead on patio speakers was blaring Sat night fever soundtrack...really on Valentine’s Day?? Live singer should stick to keyboards only
Steaks were very good but overall first experience with Prime not so good. Patio seating would be fine for lunch or early eve dinner. It just didn’t work for our special occasion
Waiter knew we weren’t digging it too. Nothing done extra by manager to make up for disappointment. ie free cocktail or dessert.

I am a local here in Delray and I couldn’t be happier with my experience at prime. Our server was Robert, he was very knowledgeable about our food questions and the specific drinks that we liked. Also he made it a point to not over gorge us with the food. We started to order a lot of sides and he mentioned that we had enough because of the big portions. He made us feel like part of the Prime family which is just one of the reasons we will be back. If you want a great fine dinning experience with great service then prime is the place to be!

The food was delicious. The atmosphere was beautiful. And I would have given it 5 stars if our waiter wasn't so arrogant and obnoxious. He kept recommending the highest priced dishes; and actually rolled his eyes when one of our guests ordered the tomahawk steak instead of the porterhouse (which was $30 more). When I asked what came with my dinner, he said it's a very small side portion so that I would order an extra side. And then I slipped him my credit card (as I was treating my guests as a surprise) and he had the nerve to add a 20% tip (which I would have done anyway) and handed me the credit card slip and said 'just sign it.' Since when is there a 20% gratuity added for a party of 5? I loved the restaurant but the waiter put a damper on the dinner.

We had a table outside on a pleasant evening. We were able to have a conversation with our friends and really enjoy ourselves. Prime is my favorite restaurant in Delray!

The steaks were tough. One was a Filet Mignon which had to be sent back and the second one was only a slightly better. The NY Strip was not very good either - Tough to cut and chew.

Service, ambiance all good - had a Filet Mignon that was cold (and the plate was even cold)! It appeared as though the steaks for the table were all finished first and then before serving waited for the au gratin potatoes, that were delicious and HOT - clearly just taken out of the oven.

This Prime is definitely NOT PRIME 112 nor is it anything even close! The steaks at OUTBACK are even better than the ones we had at PRIME in Delray Beach, Florida. The rest of the food was marginal, at best! If you are yearning for a great (or even good) steak, “steer” AWAY from Prime in Delray Beach, Florida!

We were there for a business dinner. Adam took very good care of us and made sure we were seated in a more private area in the restaurant. Rebecca at the bar was very friendly and poured most excellent drinks.

Table service was good and food was exceptional. Appetizers, salads and sides are larger than you find in similar high end restaurants. Our server discouraged ordering too much and suggested sharing simply because of portion-size. Steaks are Pittsburgh style done on a flat iron and cooked perfectly. Although the prices are similar as a Morton's or Ruth Chris, I found Prime to be a better value.

Ambiance was nice. Comfortable seating, low lighting, and background music subtle enough to hear without being annoying.

Five years ago when they were in the previous location I didn't have the best experience . Enough time had passed, so I thought I'd give them another chance. I'm glad I did.

Our dinner guests were impressed and made for a positive impression for our company. I would definitely recommend and go back. Thanks to Adam and the team.

The ambience was nice-piano player and a more formal dining room. Probably perfect for an older crowd.

Food was all the way around just fair. Tomato mozzarella salad was good. I got the 12 oz filet cooked medium and it was slightly over and under spiced. The tiny side of bernaisse sauce had no punch. The broccoli rabe was so bitter and over salted it was inedible. My friend got the Osso Bucco Ravioli-pasta was fresh and good but the filling was dull and bland. The Bison Bolognese over it tasted like out of a jar. Very disappointing. Brownie with vanilla ice cream was dry and I’ve made more decedent desserts from a box mix.

I won’t go back. Too many other good choices in Delray!
