prime meridian is less than half as good as it was. 10/10 - would not recommend. the food is average but not worth the prices. the staff is excellent, accommodating, friendly and professional. please revise the menu, get a new head chef with 21st century cuisine ideas. we used to frequent this place and it was awesome but now i dont think we’ll return.

Loved the soup And cocktails, I found both the crab cake and scallops had too much salt on them and over powered the dish. Service was excellent and loved the view.

Would recommend it for people staying at the Omni who don’t have time to go downtown for dinner. It’s easy, friendly, convenient, but there is no question it is a hotel restaurant.

Service was absolutely horrible and restaurant was only half full. Had to call the waiter for refill on drinks. Never got an item I ordered for my daughter and my appetizer, which I ordered for my meal, was ice cold. Was very disappointed but location was great for bite before concert at mercedes-benz stadium. Also cocktails were pretty good

Steak was seared so long on one side that it was too tough to eat. It wasn’t terribly over cooked but it wasn’t great either. A $36 steak should be great. Our server was fantastic... just wish the food matched the service

The Shrimp & Grits were very good, but be prepared to remove the tails. The filet was excellent, melt in your mouth tender & perfectly cooked to my requested medium-rare. Both paired nicely with a bottle of Meomi Pinot Noir.

I will never go here again and do not recommend it. When we arrived at 7 for our reservation, we stood around for 5 minutes before they told us it would be 20 more. This was unacceptable since we had a concert to go to. A manager eventually sat 8 of us at a 6-top table. The host then said she'd take our drink orders, but said she couldn't take any alcoholic drink orders. She left for a while, came back, and said she actually could take alcoholic orders. I asked if we could put our food orders in since it seemed like service would be slow. She said she couldn't find anyone to take our order, which I said was unacceptable. She then said she couldn't help that it was busy and pointed OUTSIDE to the park... The restaurant was busy, but not slammed. At this point, we got up and left. Terrible experience that I do not recommend.

Food was excellent. waiter was ok. i think the cook staff was the problem as it took way to long to get our food and once the waiter disappeared, he was gone for ten/fifteen minutes. It may be because this is Georgia and I am used to fast service being from NY, but overall wasn’t that impressed. It was good not great.

Great location in the heart of downtown. The views are somewhat obstructed by trees, but you still have a wonderful skyline view. We came for dinner, and there weren’t many others there, so it’s a very quiet spot. The menu has options for everyone, so you’re sure to find something you’ll enjoy. They validate Valet parking, you just have to ask the hostess to stamp your ticket. Will definitely return.

Vegetarian options were non existent on the menu. When asked, the waiter responded with a salad or rice with vegetables. Boring and unappealing. Ended up with a colorful plate of asparagus, carrots, and sweet potato fries that all tasted good, but not really a meal. Colleague ordered and specified a gluten free salmon caesar that arrived with croutons. It was returned to the kitchen and when the second version was delivered it was without croutons, but the salmon was half of the original portion.

Reservation at 11:30. Confusion over when restaurant actually opened, as doors were locked. Did open at 11:35, but staff did not appear ready and everything moving very slowly at first. They eventually recovered, we were finished by 12:30 and food was excellent. Wondering if Open Table reservations is not coordinating with restaurant on actual hours. Had this issue once before (only used Open Table twice)

We were celebrating 2 birthdays. We were seated quickly. There was no one else seated in the restaurant but a waiter never came to our table. After sitting for 20 minutes I ended up having to ask the wait staff if someone was going to come to our table and take our order. We were ignored until then, with staff arranging placemats at other tables until that time. The food was okay, but overpriced. Even for big city. The crab cake was the best thing we had. The scallops were too chewy, the ribs fatty, and the black truffle pate abysmal. The ox tail was okay. The fried quail was above average. The view was great. And the location was perfect since we were going to a concert. Would I eat there again? Only in a time crunch. And if only get the crabcakes.

Took foreign visiting business associates out to discuss business. This was during a trade show at the GWCC which is right around the corner attended by thousands, many looking for a place to eat. It was a busy evening at Prime due to high volume, but service was attentive, food was cooked according to what we ordered and we felt relaxed. Recommend for business lunch/dinner.
I don't usually mention servers by name, but Kevin took care of us very well.

GREAT place before a game. Booked for a party of 5 prior to College Championship game. Very accommodating as we added a few more people and ended up a party of 10. Excellent and attentive service even on a ridiculously busy day. Food was also very good. Highly recommend when you are in the area or for a pre/post game meal.

Arrived at designated reservation time, place was half empty, host said one minute, and 5 minutes later there was still no one coming to seat me. Complete waste of time, and to be honest the restaurant didn't look that appetizing, more like a breakfast buffet hotel setup. Old tables and chairs, this place needs to up it's game. VERY disappointing.

The Christmas special was unbelievable ! We were so glad we chose it. The pumpkin soup was a delightful surprise. The salad was the most beautifully presented and flavor combination we have every had. The bread, butter and jam was delicious. Then came the Entree. Wonderful Prime Rib, duchess potatoes, asparagus and carrots. Everything was cooked perfectly. Then came the eggnog creme brulee! the presentation was beautiful. It was not your standard brulee. the fresh fruit on top was the perfect combination. Our server was personable and prompt. We were visiting from out of town. Our little family had the perfect Christmas dinner with no preparation or clean up. A wonderful treat and change. Thank goodness we only had to waddle up to our rooms at the Omni !
