The food was okay. The service could have been been better. It took about fifteen minutes minutes for someone to bring water and another fifteen minutes for someone to take out order. While the tables around us were tended to several times while we waited.

Everything was fine. It was a Tuesday night so pretty quiet. Bread very good, other dishes were good but nothing outstanding. Service was good.

Great service.! The salmon carpaccio was excellent. The fish special, halibut, was over done. The grilled veal chop was “ok”. I’ve had the chop before and tonight’s didn’t compare to the other times. The garlic mashed potatoes tasted like they were made with water.

Had 5 for a family dinner. We visit fairly regularly. Mostly good but my son ordered a steak which arrived undercooked. They offered to do it again and delivered the second one overcooked on one side and undercooked on the other. They removed the steak from the bill. Otherwise all was good. Another gathering on the opposite side of the room was noisy - an adult birthday party with plenty of wine.

Servers were friendly and attentive.

Really good food and service. Pricey but worth it. Met my niece who was visiting from out of town here. I had a grouper special with articokes and sundried tomatoes. My husband had duck and my niece had the bolognese pasta. We all enjoyed our meals. The waitstaff was on top of things but allowed us to take our time. Will definitely come again when in the area.

We were traveling through and our typical restaurant didn’t have reservations. I tried Primo Prime based on reviews and it did not disappoint. I had the spinach salad and veal porcini. My mom had tagliatelle bolognese and traditional Caesar. My sister had the special spinach ravioli and traditional Caesar as well. For dessert we had the house made tiramisu, creme brûlée cheesecake and limoncello cake. Every course was delicious and the service was quite good on a busy Saturday night. I will definitely pass this way again.

Our reservation was at 715 and the place wasn’t very full when we arrived. Our waiter was clear to tell us the kitchen was slow as things hadn’t gotten back to precovid (And all the tables around us) By 830 we heard him tell the table behind us they were very backed up and had 15 tickets. We did get our food after 9 and it was good. The temperature of the side room was very warm and my husband was very uncomfortable making the 2 hour wait seem longer.
