Lovely on a Sunday night. Very find bread. Excellent salad. Delicious prime steak. Fair, clam appetizer...delicious sauce, but tiny clams. Mashed potatoes were terrible. We had very fine service.

Enjoyed it as usual. Always pleased with both the food and the service. The cheesecake that was given to us in celebration of our anniversary at the end of the meal was a surprise. We enjoyed it. We were there for our 50th, six years ago.

Food was very good. Very nice place to take date. Our waiter was very good. We then went to the bar after dinner for some more drinks and the service was just ok. There were a lot of locals and the bartenders didn’t really pay us any attention. Too busy with everyone else they know.

Food was delicious. It was a bit difficult to hear each other at the table because of the noise level. Overall, a great night and would definitely come back.

Took waitress 10-15 to come to take a drink order. Drink came 10 minutes later incorrect. Christine was our waitress. We come to Primi often so I assume it was just an off night.

The service was not good. We waited close to 45 minutes between our salad and meal without anyone checking on us. Then the meal came and the Swordfiah special was dry like it had waited to long to be served. Veal chop was good. Overall we were disappointed.

The ambiance of the restaurant was very good, reminiscent of high end Great Neck locations. Service was exceptionally good. The food was very good, with the exception of the French fries in truffle oil. They were undercooked and greasy. None of the five people at my table enjoyed them. The main courses were exceptional.

Food was fantastic but the service was terrible. The server didn’t come to the table really at all to check on us. He forgot to get us our drinks and took forever. We also were their for my wife’s 30th birthday and he forgot to bring us a dessert that I asked for. Instead we had to ask for it from another server.

First if you go do not take the booth under the stairs. The noise from people running up and down was awful.
My husband and I love trying new steakhouses. We also love a good porterhouse paired with an outstanding bottle of wine. We did not have that experience at all. When the waiter approached I asked him what he knew about the wine selection. He admitted not much but would ask his manager. I said we enjoy fruity Italian reds. He came back with a sample. It was warm, bitter and obviously the house wine. I said is that the best you have. He said this is our fruity Pino. I should have said no, I am looking for a higher quality red but without a hand in choosing I just said ok. I asked him to chill the bottle a little in hopes of taking away some of the bitterness. We then ordered the porterhouse for two. I asked what their medium was. He said slightly pink. I said perfect. The steak arrived. Some pieces were blood red, some were over cooked. A beautiful piece of meat was ruined. The waiter never came back to ask how everything was. We ate like two pieces and couldn’t eat more. The bus boy came and asked if we wanted to wrap anything. I said ‘wrap the steak, I’ll finish cooking it at home’. I kind of expected the waiter to then ask how was everything... he didn’t. Shame on him, it reflected in his tip. They had an expansive wine menu and we would have bought one of their more interesting bottles but were offered no assistance, someone needs to retrain the waiter and the kitchen needs to learn to cook a porterhouse evenly. Such a disappointment.

Super friendly atmosphere. Service excellent. We had a group of six and ordered Rib-eye steaks that were outstanding. We sat outside on their deck by a fireplace after dinner and had after dinner drinks. It was terrific

Ive been going to PRIMI for 2 years now and have never had a bad thing to say until last Friday (5/17) when me and my girlfriend went for our 5 year anniversary. Our waiter ruined our whole dinner. When we were first seated i had a feeling we were going to have a problem with him since he seemed very annoyed that i didnt order a drink. We ordered the primi pizza , 2 wedge salads, cacio e pepe with shimp on the side, a tomahawk steak for two , and whipped potatoes and brussel sprouts. After the waiter took our food order he never came to the table to ask us how everything was which would of been nice since 3 of the things we ordered tastes very bad. He only came back when it was time for dessert . He did not even say anything all he did was put the menus on the table. i asked very politely for the check because i would not have wasted another dollar on that meal. We did not tip him because he did not deserve it but we did tip the bus boys.

Overpriced - waiter disappeared for 20 minutes as soon as my son joined us late only to come back and tell us kitchen closed 2 minutes ago. Would not serve dinner after 9:00PM.
