    Service was not at the quality we would have expected for the prices. Dining room and servers were all very nice but didn’t have experience of fine dining that I’d expect. We didn’t have silverware or place settings for our entire party. We had to ask to order our food after starters were placed down at the table. One table behind us had a several minute long ‘concert’ performance by the young kids using chopsticks by hitting the table, glassware, and plates. Literally everyone was staring in shock that this was allowed. Our party of 4 spent $350 including tip and we felt we didn’t have the fine dining experience we expected. The food was all delicious! Maybe try their lunch if they haven’t! The fish, sushi, and steak were all done very well.

    We had Easter Brunch and paid a lot of money. Unfortunately we were a little disappointed. The food quality and selections weren’t great and we ate in a giant ballroom stuffed in there with others. Not what we were hoping for.

    We were a party of ten. We were put in a private room which was nice. Overall service and food were good. However, I cannot eat gluten or dairy and informed the server. My food came out with sides that made my meal unsafe for me to eat. My husband noticed and told the server. She brought my food back to the kitchen. It took a really long time for it come back and when it did, it was cold and the same meal, just without the side. I had to go back a second time and look for someone to actually remake the food safely. I ended up eating the food, but it took two hours and everyone had been done for a long time before I got my meal. I felt the restaurant should have removed my meal from the bill but they did not.

    Amazing views and relaxing atmosphere . The service is incredible!!! However the price of drinks and food for the portion sizes means I won’t be visiting too often again. Maybe once a year type place. If they had bottomless mimosas for $20 that would be nice but not for 1 drink. You are paying for the views.

    Not sure what happened here, maybe because it was a weeknight. But the service, and the food was not as good as one would think, as part of a high scale environment. There were only two other tables being served, yet we waited a long time for service. Food was just above mediocre, and the dessert, Nutella cheesecake was not good at all. A bit disappointed; I’ve been staying at this resort regularly for the last seven years.

    Our service was great, Jennifer was very accommodating and friendly. Food was amazing. My husband had yellow tail with jalapeño and pork belly appetizers. OMG, so good. I had chicken, mashed potatoes and carrots. 🥕 It was my birthday weekend so the restaurant presented us with a beautiful dessert. 🍮

    Food, when received after an hour and a half of waiting for it in a lightly busy restaurant, was good. However, for the price, the service was scattered and unpleasant. Do not recommend due to the experience and unmet expectations. Third try here and no better. The hotel is lovely but they can’t figure out the restaurant.

    This is a beautiful restaurant with great service. Unfortunately, the Christmas Day buffet was super disappointing. It was nearly all breakfast foods, turkey and ham but no appropriate sides, and just cupcakes for dessert. We weren’t expecting anything extravagant, but for the price, we expected a little more variety. Honestly, we could have had a more delicious meal at Waffle House.

    Terrible communication from the establishment. Because once I arrived there & I had reservations and even received a check up reservation text from Primrose. I get there & the place was close and they sent me the check in reservation text a day before my dinner date. So unfortunately there were no Primrose employees there and we had to sit and the other restaurant & order from the menu. Terrible experience and the team from the other restaurant did their best to accommodate us.

    My husband and I went to the Primrose for the Thanksgiving buffet. Our experience last year was outstanding but this year it was disappointing. It was a lot of little things that just added up -- food was not hot, the turkey was dry, the cocktail sauce for the shrimp was so hot my mouth was burning for a very long time, the wait staff brought our check just as we sat down to have our entrees, the desserts were significantly smaller than last year and the display was pretty pedestrian. We'll be looking elsewhere next year.

    We had our Thanksgiving meal here. Was not sure what to expect as we have not previously eaten out on Thanksgiving. Although pricey, it was worth it. The selections were numerous with options for our daughter in law who has a dairy intolerance. We would definitely recommend and will return should we be in Destin again on Thanksgiving.

    Not a premier restaurant though their pricing would have you think it is. We had a reservation for weeks prior and was seated at a bare table. Nothing! No tablecloth, table service, or salt and pepper. Nothing. My SEAFOOD chowder had mostly BACON in it and the $16.00 bowl was hardly 5 bites. So disappointing. No ambiance, nothing special. Would not recommend.
