Food came quickly, but server messed up with our check and charged me for the whole bill, while still charging my friend her half. It was a good thing I checked because the server definitely didn’t even notice the error.
This was the perfect place for a small group gathering. We were able to be seated away from the bar, so it was easier to talk. Restaurant accomodated our special requests and was wheelchair friendly. Food and drinks were good and waiter was great!
The food was very good but the service was lacking. I sat at the table for 10 minutes before anyone came up and asked I would like something. We ordered an appetizer, the flatbread which was delicious, but it arrived even before we received our drinks. The server was very busy and mentioned she was working a party. I think the management should schedule more staff in these situations. I will go back and give it another try because the food was very good. The sesame tuna was delicious!
Service and food was excellent. I've been to the Primebar a few times and the quality of the food and service remain consistent.
Good spot for business lunch.
coleague’s going away lunch. staff was able to accommodate 15 people for a surprise lunch. worked out well even during lunch time hours. food and service were great. 😃
More like a sportsbar than the website let on.
As usual good food, excellent service and a superb value for the experience.
Reasonable menu and prices; convenient location
We sometimes have dinner hear before attending events at the Civic Opera House. The food is good and the drinks are great. Usually pretty quiet on Saturday evenings. Friday is busy, as are most work nights when the crowd is brisk and lively. They serve typical bar type food, which is creatively prepared and served by attentive staff.
Awesome, as always
Consistent and reliable food and service for business lunch meetings.
We had a fabulous waiter and great food for our casual business meting. Portions are just right for value and taste was excellent! I recommend Prime Bar for fun with friends.
Quick service with a smile. Tasty flavors and a good variety on the menu. My go to is the ahi tuna tacos. They are really good and the rice & beans accompanying is tasty. It's definitely a meal!
My mom and I ate here after a matinee at the Lyric Opera. We sat outside on the patio. So relaxing! The staff was wonderful and patient as we sat stayed much longer than average catching up. The food was absolutely delicious. This turned into a great memory for us!
Great service and atmosphere! Even got a special dessert for my birthday!
Primebar is a great go-to for lunch or dinner. I’ve been there a handful of times now and it never disappoints. They have a nice variety of dishes on the menu which is great. Quality of food and the experience provide for a great value. I really like sitting outside here, taking in the sun (they have umbrellas if you want shade), and people watching. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
Wonderful and timely service. Loved the atmosphere as well!
Great place for a date, large cozy booths, good food and the service is EXCELLENT!
We went to Primebar with two children before seeing a play. The menu seemed like a good fit for the whole family since it has a nice variety. The service was very good, however the food was a bit disappointing- good on paper but just not executed quite right. My stepdaughter ordered the caprese flatbread that looked good but was just ok- not very flavorful. I had the tuna tacos that were mediocre- the tuna was a bit stringy. I also ordered the brussel sprouts as a side dish, and they were outstanding. Bottom line- if you stick to basics like burgers you are probably safe. I would probably give Primebar one more chance.
If you're coming here for drinks after work, great --- but don't come for the food! I had the lemon-rosemary chicken and it was disgusting. The chicken seemed boiled and pre-cooked, and was not browned at all, leaving it completely unappetizing, with some parsley/rosemary sauce dumped on top. Yuk. My friend had a burger that was mediocre at best. On the plus side, the food came out fast. Again, on the minus side, noone came to refill our waters for the entirety of the meal. Come for the drinks if you want, but eat the food at your own risk.
I thought the atmosphere was very nice. It is a great place to have a business lunch. I liked the Asian Chicken Salad but the chicken was a bit dry.
Thoroughly enjoyed getting together with friends and family at PrimeBar. Had an awesome lunch and enjoyed great service and conversation. Lively lunchtime crowd but only modest waits and prompt service.
Great birthday lunch spot on a Wednesday. Good service, solid food!
Good food and fast service for a weekday lunch. Nice decor and great lighting. The waitress could have been a little friendlier.
Met my daughter in-law after work for her and post matinee play for me. This is a wonderful location near theater district and Union Station! It has a great bar area and food was great. Just had sandwiches and small plates. Friendly attentive staff. Will definitely go back!
Great service and food!
Adhesive tape covering a cut in the seat cushion of booth I was sitting in marked my pants. Seriously!
Great place to eat before heading to the Cadillac or Oriental Theaters. It's barely a two block walk from Primebar Chicago to both theaters. Even though it's a large restaurant the noise level is moderate. The service was quick and thoughtful. The food and portions were good. We really enjoyed our experience here.
Our diner was outstanding! They might have been the best chicken tacos I've ever had! We will be going back!
We went as a large group before the theater, it was mostly business people meeting after work-
it was busy. The table was much too small for our large group and the plates themselves left virtually no room for our dining plates. We felt very crowded and the waitress offered no
insight to this when ordering. She could not recommend wine either. Was just OK, but not great.
Cool place. Great before a show. Nice menu. Pretty quick. Very loud
I went for a business lunch and it was a great experience overall. Food was delicious and the service was friendly and attentive. I would absolutely go back again for lunch.
Just OK, waiter ordered and brought the wrong food...very loud and tables on top of each other...never again!
Very good food with a variety of selections on the menu. Will definitely be going back.
Great experience. Had dinner before a show at Cadillac Palace. Close distance to theater and parking. We plan on going back soon.
Pre-march dinner!! Before the march against gun violence we needed a great meal !!
Traveled to Prime Bar from the burbs to visit some friends. The bartenders were quick and the service was wonderful! The food was awesome as well.
Can’t wait to come visit again
It is adequate but convenient
Very varied menu - in cuisine and portion sizes. Good food, better than expected for "bar food." Location so convenient to the Lyric, and service so fast, that we got to opera house in time to check coats :).
