    The food was great, but be aware that it's small plates to be shared. The service was outstanding as always. Tawny was our server and had spectacular recommendations and really made our night. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a meal experience outside what you might normally experience.

    Loud environment. Slightly overpriced for the size of the tapas. Server was slightly pretentious about our choices used the statement “don’t pair very well” and didn’t offer a solution. Overall fine experience, may not dine again.

    We had the lamb kefta which was exquisite. The gnocchi and the mac and cheese was very good. The tuscan steak was superb and honestly the best steak I have ever had. We also has the the golden aries and the cognac. They were both so good as well. Loved the experience and I can’t wait to go back!

    First of all our waiter was AMAZING. Food was amazing as well. We had never been and brought our "kids" with us. They are young adults but are still expanding their food horizons. They loved it. Libations were wonderful. I usually will only have one drink out, but it was my birthday and I had two. Both were great. I can't wait to go back!

    First visit to Primrose. Nice place. Some tapas were authentic - from experiences in Spain - some less so. But the food was all good. We'll bne back, I'm sure. Server Bellamie was great.

    Food and Service were outstanding! Second visit there - and even more satisfied than an already great 1st visit. Had Frmage platter, caramelizrd carrots, bacon wrapped dates, Tuscan steak, and lamb skewers (more than enough for two people. Every morsel was fabulous. Especially loved the carrots and lamb skewers, but all dishes were memorable. Will visit every time we come into town

    This place is FANTASTIC! We’ve been coming for years and never - NEVER - have a less than stellar experience. The menu is unique to the area, but accessible and varietal enough for picky palates. This includes the drinks! Service is always top notch and the food consistently delights and impresses. The tapas style is fun for all, but it absolutely nails it for parties of four or more. Take your time and savor the experience. If you’re unsatisfied I might consider refunding you myself, I’m that confident (don’t try and play me on that).

    Something for everyone! Fabulous menu and exceptional food. Small servings because "tapas"- but enough to share and enjoy each dish. Mac and cheese is MUST, along with the Brussel sprouts. Steak dishes are wonderful along with the gourmet pizzas. Just start with these and then go where your appetite takes you! Enjoy.

    Very good experience. My wife had a flight of wine to sample and tapas as always were top notch. Parking was valet only and process to have our car waiting for us when we finished broke down. We had to wait for the car to be returned to the curb and it was cold. We needed to walk around to keep warm while waiting. That was the only downside in the service.
