    Valentine’s Day experience was not worth the money at all. The regular menu is better. If you can’t guarantee consistency and quality, you shouldn’t do a specialty menu.

    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.

    Celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary at Primrose was perfect!! A genuine 5-star dining experience, unequivocally the best! Primrose unquestionably boasts the finest sushi in the area, and the chef's 2024 Best in Destin nomination is well-deserved, given the truly outstanding food!

    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.

    We thought we were coming for the Thanksgiving buffet but somehow found out it had ended at 5 and our reservation was for 6. As a result, we were SO disappointed in food selection expected and spent a lot more than we anticipated.

    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.

    An absolutely beautiful physical space. The food was good, with portions on the smaller side of average. The service was sub-par on every level. Our waiter was working several tables in the restaurant as well as serving in the sister restaurant adjacent. He got several orders incorrect. The gentleman at the table next to us eventually had to get up and get water refills himself (which he nicely offer to us as well). The dishes cleared from the table were stacked in bus bins piled near the entry door. The restrooms were out of towels despite it only being 8pm. This is a management fail. Sorry. At the 40-55 entrée price point, its just not worth it.

    Noise level? Lol too many people and children. Food was HORRIBle. My food was burnt and the rest well you can see the prices are way over priced. Management sucks and needs replaced. She didn’t care about our needs. The food has been replaced with garbage. The people next to us were saying how awful the food was also. Never again, save yourselves and go anywhere else!

    We arrived on time for our 6:30 reservation and were seated right away. We waited for 25 minutes and no wait person ever came to our table to acknowledge that we were there. I waved down a waitress from another area and she said she would find someone. Waited another 10 minutes and left as still no interest in servicing us. We went to a nearby restaurant and received great service and excellent meal.

    Wonderful restaurant at the Henderson. We sat outside on porch bc weather was so nice. Not beachfront but upscale cozy place w beachy view & vibe. Food was excellent. We started w an extra dirty martini and the special smoked Manhattan. Cauliflower appetizer was very well done and tasty. Just enough kick. My wife had a tuna roll and I had the house special Cajun style grouper. We highly recommend both. Grouper is a moderate portion but very tasty. We were too full for dessert. Great service from the front door through out. Highly recommended.
