chicken scarpariello was not good. Steak had a charred coating that made it tough to cut

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.

Our server was great. It might have been his first night at Prime, but it definitely wasn’t his first night in a restaurant. He was articulate and knowledgeable! Tuna tartare was outstanding, kind more like a poke tuna though. Very fresh ahi tuna. The shrimp app was very tough and rubbery. Crab was just ok. Ordered garlic mashed potatoes, we got red potatoes forked with melted butter, really disappointed, if you don’t have mash potatoes then just say so. Ordered cowboy steak Medium Rare, it came out barely rare. Manager insisted that the kitchen bring it up to temperature. And explained that the reason the steak was under cooked was due to cutting in the center. Stated that the steak would have continued to cook if not for that. Not that steak, it was rare, it wasn’t gonna cook anymore without an oven. When the steak came back it was great. I was thankful!! We will go back and try again next time we are in del Ray.

Dinner with girlfriends. The lobster ravioli was a little too salty and not much lobster in it. We had to request for water refill quite often. Restaurant was not busy. Also the restaurant is located in the same building as ‘Il Bacio’

There is a problem with Prime. The prices on the menu are not the same than the one on the check! Each item ordered was 95 cents higher on the Check! The manager told us this was regular practice! Strange!!!

My wife and I had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant twice during our April visit to Delray Beach. Typically, we go to visit a variety of restaurants during our stay and never eat at the same establishment twice. Due to our experience at Prime, we had to make an exception. Every item sampled appetizer and side dish we ordered was outstanding. With respect to the main course, of specific desire was the 22 ounce ribeye which my wife and I shared. Talk about flavorful, tender and delicious, after our first experience, we had to come back and try it again. Our second experience was the same as the first so I can add the food is consistently excellent here. When you factor in the excellent service, Prime is the best culinary experience in Delray Beach. In my book it is second to none and will be the first restaurant I visit when I return.

We had an opportunity to meet the General Manager, Merrit, who was both affable and courteous. He is another reason to enjoy a meal at Prime as he will be monitoring the dining room to assure all are receiving a "Prime" experience. While we dined on a Sunday (inside the restaurant) and on a Wednesday (out on its rear patio), Merrit informed us that on Friday and Saturday nights, the patio transforms into a club as dance music from the 70's into the 90's is played. Being in our 50's and enjoying this era of music, we were disappointed we missed those nights. The area also has a large stage for bands to perform.

Do yourself a favor and sample the cuisine at Prime. You won't be disappointed.

Very, very poor service that ruined the night. 4 steaks under cooked and had to send back. Lost all sides we plated when we sent them back. Brussels sprouts under cooked. 1 filet completely full of sinew.
Desserts were tasty but other than that very disappointed

Based on some other reviews was truly hoping for the best with this restaurant, but was sadly disappointed. The food and the service are not on par with upscale steakhouses, such as Ruth’s Chris or Del Friscos. The Caesar salad had blue stone crab shells in it, likely from the night before (Wednesday’s blue stone crab night), which was not appetizing. They apologized by saying that the blue stone crab station is next to the Caesar salad area and that when cracking the “shells fly everywhere.” The salad was comped. The food was okay, but not great for its value. The scallop dish and the lemon herb chicken were good, but the steaks were just average. The manager was overbearing in trying to push food on the menu. We will not be returning.

Prime just misses the mark. Despite a delicious Tomahawk Ribeye and a well made bourbon sour the lack of congeniality of the staff and the unbearable noise level make this a no go zone.
We were there on Saturday night which I realize is noisy but they did not inform us of a private party going on out back with a horrendous live band and constant audio feedback squealing across the restaurant. Although we did not complain to the management we were given a $20 gift certificate on leaving due to the noise. This was small potatoes next to the over 500 dollars tab for the evening.

Ideally located in the heart of Delray Beach just one step away from the Avenue, this unique and elegant restaurant will charm you with its authentic décor, its flavorful food items, its great beverage selection and its dedicated staff; not to mention that every night brings something new and special: from stone crabs to Sunset Dinner specials and killer Happy Hour deals, this place has it all!

Atmosphere was lovely inside & out. We sat in the outdoor garden where Frank Sinatra and the like were played at a background level. They have a live keyboard player but he called in sick the nite we were there. You could hear trains pass periodically but that didnt really detract. Service was very good and efficient but the food was just EH. Nothing really wowed us - and this was not an inexpensive meal. I had the seafood fra diabalo which was just ok. Not hot enough and it was spicier than requested. (I was told it was cooked to order and they could adjust heat.) My husband's veal Milanese looked great but wasnt crispy. Portions were generous and we didnt complain. Just think they need to step up the kitchen.
