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!
Primes special for the summer is ax3 Maine lobster meal a cant miss for lobster lovers.
Only good things to say about the management, food prep and service.
Happy hour OK too!
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.
Prime has become our go to place for special occasions and just dining out. The staff is always helpful and treat you as family. It's just a great place to go for an evening out.
The food was fantastic and the piano player was fabulous!!!
Great time as usual. This is out go to restaurant, $33 for 3 course meal, always have leftovers. Its the best deal around.
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.
Steaks were cooked to perfection.. Although steps away from atlantic ave, a welcome retreat from the strip. 5 Stars!
best ambiance of any restaurant in area. go there if you like art deco,sinatra music, great menu choices.
Staff were awesome food was delicious so we're drinks we highly recommend
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.
Lovely dining area! We enjoyed the piano music too.
All the food was excellent,starting with very generous sized salads.We ordered too much food with entrees and sides.
Typically an expensive steak meal, but enjoyable.
The outdoor dining was excellent
Away from the crowded streets unlike other Delray restaurants
My wife and I had a first class experience at Prime
Absolutely fabulous in every way!
Went there for our anniversary. Food was delicious. At 10:30 the back of the restaurant turned into a night club. We danced had a good time and came home. Will definitely go back.
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
This restaurant is fabulous! Great see and the food is delicious. I will continue to keep coming
Excellent evening. Service was wonderful and the Caesar salad and special entrees were delicious.
The food,service and atmosphere were the best in Delray Beach.
Food was awesome. Waiter was on point. The host was great. They made sure we were satisfied in every way. The steaks were out of this world. Everything was awesome.
We are always impressed when we dine here. The staff is very professional and tends to your needs. The food is excellent and the ambience is wonderful and relaxing. For a special occasion or just a night out you can't beat it.
Celebrated our wedding anniversary & it was fantastic. Our steaks were amazing as was the service & atmosphere👍
Mentioned birthday when booking with OT. Never was recognized or acknowledged. Food is large portions but not the best quality. Especially for prices. Great ambiance for us nice music but a bit too loud. No valet parking which in Delray I was counting on.
Fantastic as always!! Amazing food and drinks!!
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.
Always excellent food and atmosphere. The manager always friendly and accommodating. If any problems they handle it with a smile and professionalism.
Fantastic, as always!
Took my girlfriend to Prime for a romantic date and was impressed with every aspect of our evening there. The food was phenomenal as well as the service, accompanied by the amazing ambiance of the restaurant, leaving us with an extremely memorable dining experience.
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.
Had never been there before and was very pleasantly surprised all around. Nicely appointed, upscale, a great happy hour and we had a delicious dinner. Joey the bartender was very attentive and Jonathan the manager went out of his way to make us comfortable. Will definitely return!
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! Definitely the best place to spend an ideal evening in Delray Beach
Another exceptional Sunday at prime!! Excellent service, food, and atmosphere! Will continue to eat here weekly!!
The atmosphere and food are excellent. I had rabbit that was excellent. steaks cooked to perfection and service was very friendly and efficient.
