    Food was ok. Ambiance was dated. Service was good. Bill was $155 plus tip. Ok, I guess; but I don’t see us going back.

    We were visiting Salt Lake City on Thanksgiving day. I had made reservations at Primo as it was one of the only places open on Thanksgiving. To my surprise, we were served a full Thanksgiving meal. It was so delicious, the service was great, we were very pleased.

    Had a fantastic experience at Primo! We went in on a Thursday evening just before 7PM on a date night whim to try a new restaurant. The dinner rush was ending and we practically had the place to ourselves. Fantastic service! Very good food. Good selections of wines (which we definitely appreciate). We started with the beef carpaccio. Lovely flavor and texture. The beet salad (subbed goat cheese for bleu cheese) was very good. Nice and cold, crisp and creamy elements, light dressing. I had the Fettuccine Alfredo with grilled shrimp. The pasta was cooked perfectly. The Alfredo sauce was garlicky, creamy, and generous. The shrimp were large and flavorful. My husband had the veal saltimbocca with vegetables and potatoes. The prosciutto was nice and crispy and salty. The veal, thinly sliced and seasoned well was unfortunately over cooked. To top it off we had the zabaglione with raspberries. Wow! What a fantastic light dessert. All in all we will definitely go back. We would have most of it again (probably not the veal saltimbocca) but are looking forward to trying other things on their menu.

    We dined at 6:00 on a Thursday evening. There were very few diners in the place, and we wondered whether we had made a bad choice. As it turned out, everything about our experience was fantastic! Seriously, the food, the service, the quiet, the decor, the cleanliness of the dining room and rest rooms. Run, don't walk, if you want an elegant experience, a wonderful meal and a great value!

    This was the first time we have dined at Primo from their previous location. From beginning to end, everything was perfect; the food, the service and the owner/chef’s preparation and presentation. Three of us had the sea bass and my wife had the stuffed veal chop. Both outstanding. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a memorable dining evening.

    Very sad place. Large restaurant with lots of space with very few people. There were four in our party and there may have been one other couple on a Friday night at 7. One other couple came in after two hours. Food was meh. The chicken piccata tasted like it was pre made and came out from under a heat lamp. The spaghetti bolognese was ok. Only decent wine menu was the caymus Cabernet but was $199. Wines by the glass were not good (Beringer).

    Primo is one of the best restaurants in the city. The food is outstanding and consistent. Samir’s specials are the best. Veal chops, fresh clams, fresh seafood. Halibut is surperd. Spinach and or beet salads are delish. The best entrees are the specials. His veal Marsala is perfect as is the piccata.

    Primo is our go to restaurant for good food and a quiet, sophisticated ambiance. You can actually have a conversation in this place! There are many semi-enclosed booths, and there is a private party room, all glass which probably seats 12. The waitstaff is outstanding - attentive without hovering. The food is always good and very traditional. You should arrive hungry and you'll be very well fed when you leave. Highly recommended!

    The service was terrible, waited a long time to get someone to serve us some drinks. It was extremely expensive for the quality of the food and the service they offered. It was only a “buffet” and paid $400 for 4 ppl and it didn’t have a variety of food

    Overpriced menu. Wait staff was unfriendly, unhelpful, and almost nonexistent. They were dressed casually in jeans and appeared inexperienced. ZNot what I expected for a restaurant that usually has great food. We had to ask where the buffet was. There were no menu options. It was buffet only. The next table spilled water and had to go hunt waitstaff down to assist them with clean up. Waitstaff watched while the customers cleaned up the mess. We had to ask for coffee or drinks. No checking on the diners to see if everything was satisfactory. Very disappointed in the entire experience I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Food is very good, the ambiance is good, but the experience could have been heightened by better service. I own a restaurant myself so I am admittedly biased, but there were not many people in the restaurant, especially for a Friday night, and the wait staff didn't do anything to engage with us. I do know how hard it is to find any staff, let alone good staff, but do we have to lower our standards completely? The hostess was dressed in tights and a Tshirt... ok, but I felt a little bit confused, is this a fancy place or a casual place? The prices were ok, just over $100 for 2 with drinks and a dessert.

    Ambiance was great. Very nice restaurant. Food was cooked perfectly. I had salmon and asparagus and it was excellent. Our friends had lamb and a steak and they too were very happy with their dinner. I'm surprised the restaurant wasn't packed given the food prep quality and ambiance. It's definitely on the repeat list.

    Love this place! Excellent service. The staff was above board. The food was excellent. Don’t listen to the few reviews of bland food or poor service. Those are from people that either can never be made happy or don’t know good food. We travel a lot and eat five star restaurants all over. I would put this up there with the best. Love the atmosphere. Nice and quiet. Staff is very attentive to your needs. We had the stuffed veal chop and the wilted spinach salad. MAGNIFICENT! And the Chianti was wonderful!
