It was our anniversary so we stayed at the Henderson and decided to dine at primrose. I had the filet ($44) and it was just a bad cut of meat. Maybe it was just that night. They did take it off my bill which I appreciate!! We had the pork belly for appetizer and it was not very good either. My husband had the fish and it had miso soup poured over it which made it interesting but not fabulous. The service was great and the actual restaurant is nice. I should have booked the melting pot as it is right down the street.

We did not tell them it was our anniversary.

Open space was louder than expected for high end hotel/resort restaurant. Good service, but limited menu. Food was good quality - enjoyed the sushi though it was heavy on the wasabi!

It was okay but a bit slow from the kitchen. I might go back. However, our server was attentive and enjoyable.

We chose Primrose for our anniversary dinner on our final night at the Henderson resort. It was all fabulous. Caesar salad was perfect and had the best croutons. We also enjoyed the crab cake and shrimp and grits. The best part was the strawberry tart we had for dessert. It was not too sweet and had a shortbread type crust. Yum. Definitely will be back!

The food was good, but not great. We were a little disappointed after reading the reviews. We probably won't dine there again when we visit the area again.

Very nice experience. Our server greeted me by name. I included in my reservation that we were celebrating my birthday and she immediately acknowledged it. We ate sushi, which was a bit of a wait, but it was delicious! The ambiance is what you expect from a hotel main dining restaurant, very open, a bit noisy, but still very enjoyable. Price is also what you expect from a high end resort, pricey, but since the quality of food was excellent, we were very satisfied! Coffee and dessert were outstanding as well!

Our friends, Steve & Dolce, booked us at Henderson for our little honeymoon. For dinner, we decided to dine at primrose. Jennifer was amazing with all the recommendations. The chef and staff acknowledged that it was our honeymoon, so they brought us a delicious flourless chocolate cake at the end of our meal. Everything was magical. We glad we dined here for our special night. Thank you!

We had dinner here on December 12th 2020. It was fantastic. We had a sushi appetizer and grouper dinner. The service was excellent. After dinner we went out to the balcony. We were the only ones out there, and I asked my girlfriend to marry me. She said yes. It was a great night. We are considering getting married at The Henderson.
