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.

Great lobster dinner for Dine out Delray. The service was a slow but the food was great. The music being played by the pianist was really loud. Hard to have a conversation with someone setting beside you.

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.

Visited Prime for the first time. Wednesday is lobster night ($40 for three nice size lobsters). Prime also has an early three course menu for $34 with many items to choose from. You cannot go wrong with either choice.

Tonight I had a wonderful experience at Prime!..this place never disappoints. I always get the scallops but decided to try a filet topped with lump crapmeat..yummm!! it was cooked to perfection. The service was amazing, we were waited on by Rafael and Joey and they made us feel right at home. If you are in Delray, you must stop in and check it out!!!!

Our favorite restaurant is Baciami which is another by these same owners. We were hoping to enjoy the same type of experience but sadly that did not happen. This restaurant is of the same dynamic as the rest of commercialized Atlantic Avenue. I will say, the service was excellent. Our server, Chris, was personable and attentive, and the manager, Merit, even came over to chat and he was personable as well. I ordered one of the specials, the veal Ossu Bucco, and while this may sound a bit ridiculous, the portion was so large that I couldn't finish it, nor could I take it home because we were out for the evening. I would have appreciated being told that the portion was so immense. Also, I had received a small gift card for joining their loyalty club, probably through our visits to Baciami. When I presented the gift card in the beginning, I was told that it could not be used on the specials, so I took it back figuring I'd use it in the future. Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that we'll be going back to this restaurant. It was ok, but definitely not what we had hoped for.

I took my girlfriend there on a date. Everything was perfect. The hostess was beautiful and nice. The manger was around making sure everything was to our satisfaction. Our server was unbelievable (joe). He made it very special for us. The cowboy ribeye 22oz is the best steak I have ever had. It is a must try and listen to their recommendations. All and all was a fantastic evening and I couldn’t have asked for more.

Just moved here from New Orleans to Delray Beach. We are exploring the area and came across Prime. Location is tucked just far enough away from the crowds to be somewhat quiet and the atmosphere of the place is what you would expect from a Tuscan steak house. Sinatra on the sound system and attentive wait staff all dressed up taking care of your every need. The Lobster special was too good to pass up. The food overall was good. The menu is extensive and I plan to return to explore the steaks, wine list and bar very soon!

The best part of Prime was the service. Our waiter was attentive. Prime's food was good, but not excellent. It's a one and done place. By the way, the manager came up to us to push the sister restaurant Il Bacio. He even gave us a $20 coupon for it. He then returned to tell us about their nightclub at Prime. He just seemed like a used car salesman pushing other things before you get out the door. This tactic really cheapens the place.

First time at this restaurant. This is a sister restaurant to Baciami in Boynton, which we've frequented several times.

Mother's Day 2 lb. lobster special. Mine was just a tad overcooked, but otherwise, they were excellent. Altho a salad (Caesar or Mixed Greens w/blue cheese) was included (and both were excellent), we also shared the Shrimp Oreganato appetizer which was fantastic. Our choice for the included Desserts was mango sorbet and a chocolate bread pudding. The Moms in the party (me!) also rec'd a glass of prosecco -- the advertisement for this wasn't clear -- we thought everyone in the party was to have rec'd one (which we ordered for hubby in any event). Menu had a few choices of wines by the glass.

The regular steak menu is varied; the manager explained that we could share a steak (as frankly anything above 8 oz. ea is way too much for us!). We'll definitely consider coming back to Prime as the restaurant is quite lovely and right in the heart of Delray.

What a great dinner. We met up with some "old" friends of ours. Needless to say, the sunset menu was spot on. Happy hour is a daily event, with Belvedere is their house vodka. This bartender really knows how to make a dynamic martini. House wines were not to my liking, so I had to select from the full price list.

Dinner was delicious. Bronzino was perfectly prepared moist and favorable. My husband had the Sunday gravy was finger licking great and the pasta made al dente, they way it should be. The fourth person in our group had the filet tips and risotto. I am not a beef or risotto fan, so those who did taste it, said the beef was tender and flavorful and risotto perfect.
Sunset sinners come with salad and deserts, and by the way the breat was worthevery single calorie.
Try this amazing tuscan steak house. The regular steak house menu is pricy, but I know it is worth every cent, if your a beef or Italian food lover.

We shall return again this summer.
