    Primo Prime has become one of our favorite Charlotte restaurants. Only complaint was the Caesar salad. Plates were warm, salad and dressing was room temp and the croutons were mushy. Maybe it just sat out too long. Excellent sea bass, pasta and service. Thank you!

    I give 5 stars only rarely. I had the lobster bisque, Shrimp St. Thomas, Veal Porcini and tiramisu for desert. My server knew the menu well, he even knew which wine to recommend for the particular order I had placed. That doesn't happen very often. The service was prompt but not rushed. I do think I heard a John Philip Sousa march playing once though, which was a little unusual, however, it wasn't so loud that it was distrubing and it has been ages since I have heard one of Sousa's marches so it was well received by my ears. The only thing to say is to sto taking my server's pens! He was very well stocked and said that he loses many pens each night. I am coming back!

    Great food and service. Was celebrating my daughters 21st birthday and the waitress was amazing about it. We ended up with a table in the very back corner but that was probably due to making last minute reservations. Will definitely be back.

    This is a restaurant on the edge of doing well or sliding down. The overall service was fine. The young man waiting our table was a little pushy at the start. We told him we were not in a hurry and he was fine was fine. The complimentary wait staff was attentive. Frankly our main server could have utilized some deodorant or a shower. This frankly impacted the dinner in a negative way. I hope This restaurant can step it up little.

    The wine and food were defintley good I ordered a Napa Groth $90 however the feel is they don't want you to stay. They served me faster than a McDonald's. Usually after ordering a pricey wine (it is good) they should assume you want to enjoy the experience. I sat down a 5:40pm with a bottle of wine and had a check at 6:15pm WTF. I just left and went ot Epic Chop house in Kingsley ordered dessert another bottle Frank Family reserve $150 and enjoyed rest of the night. Sorry but we felt pushed out and I would not go to the bar at Primo . Again food and wine no issue but hey Me and my wife are foodies and wine lovers . Your loss. Not sure I will ever be back .

    We will not be back. Waitress was lovely; the busboy although pleasant was annoying. It seemed as if every time we took a sip of water, he came over to refill our glasses. At first, we thought it nice but after 6/7 times we just wanted him to stop as he kept interrupting our conversations. There were 4 people in our party. Only one person enjoyed his food - the appetizer, eggplant rollatini. We started with salads, besides being very overdressed, the lettuce was wilted and turning that reddish/brown color. It just went downhill from there.

    This was our first visit and everything was wonderful! The food was all delicious & the service was delightful! I had the spinach gnocchi appetizer and the capellini with the shrimp and they were melt in your mouth delicious! One friend had the beef tenderloin and it was perfectly cooked and could be cut with a butter knife. I tasted it and it was amazing! Another friend had the diver sole and she ate it all before I could get a bite! The bread was out of this world and nice and warm. We will definitely return here when we visit Charlotte again. There were 9 of us and they were also accommodating with separate checks! Highly recommended!!!

    We had a quiet and delicious meal at Primo Prime. We took our server Tommi's suggestions and ordered the chopped salad (unusual presentation, but delicious), Scottish salmon and Tagliatelle Bolognese. The entrees were lovely; the salmon cooked beautifully on butternut squash puree, the pasta very rich. Tiramisu for dessert did not disappoint. We will definitely be back!
