Our first time to Prime did not disappoint. The restaurant is beautiful and very classy. The views from inside are stunning. We were greeted by the manager when we arrived and were immediately made to feel very welcome. We enjoyed delicious cocktails, sushi, and steak. The cocktails were high quality, made very well, and unique. The same can be said for the sushi! So good and very fresh. For our entrees we each had the filet, with sides of au gratin potatoes and mashed potatoes and it all was perfection. For dessert we had the strawberry cheesecake and it was some of the best we’ve had. Service was excellent and we will be back. Next time we visit we plan to sit at the bar, have a couple cocktails, and some sushi.

Amazing food and service. Unique and very yummy food choices, I loved every bite! The service was top notch and the atmosphere is what you picture from an historic building/area in downtown Portsmouth. Walked across the street to beautiful Prescott Park after and got some great photos. I can't wait to go back again!

I selected the Date night package for my 18th year anniversary. When I arrived with my wife our table was set up with a nice black table cloth, a hand written card to enjoy our date night and a red rose. My wife got to enjoy samples of wine, food was amazing and for dessert we had chocolate covered strawberries with the date package. Everyone was very nice and my wife was impressed with my planning. I totally recommend.
