My wife and I made reservations for dinner prior to theatre. We had dined there on one previous occasion with a mixed experience and decided to give the restaurant one more try. We were surprised when we asked why they were not serving bread with our meal to be told that there was no bread that day because the bakery had not made a delivery. Since it was only 5:15 I wondered why a staff member could not have gone to a local grocery store and resolved the issue and when I suggested that to the waiter I only received a blank stare. Certainly not a good experience and will not be returning as there are many excellent restaurants in downtown Burlington!
We went to SB Prime to enjoy a steak and we were not disappointed. The steak was excellent and the service was fantastic. I would gladly go back
SB Prime was fantastic and an excellent choice for date night. We arrived a little late, and the Chef stayed late to accommodate our arrival. Great ambiance, excellent service and delicious wines. I would recommend SB Prime to anyone who enjoys fine dining.
We sat for quite some time before being served. Drink and food ordered at the same time as per waiters suggestion. First course arrived before our cocktails. Second course arrived very quickly afterwards...we asked for a break before dessert. No offer of coffee or tea.
food was mediocre.
Excellent food and service as always. Very convenient location just steps from parking and the Performing Arts Centre. Our dinner from the Taste of Burlington menu was excellent but the Kale & spinach salad was simply outstanding.
On Saturday, I went to Prime with my daughter prior to going to the Burlington Arts Centre. This allowed us to order 1 entre and receive one free. An excellent offer which definitely enticed us to go to dinner prior to the show. We both had Filet Mignon, which was excellent, and shared a salad, which was delivered on two plates, which was a nice surprise. The salad was great, but I would have liked a bit more dressing. And we were not offered fresh ground pepper, which is always welcome by me. We were a little disappointed that the entrees only came with roasted garlic and onion and we had to order sides separately. I would have expected vegetables and a choice of potatoes/rice to be included. Both the potato gratin and the risotto that we ordered were delicious. Maybe I just have to get used to the idea of ordering sides separately. My daughter had a rehearsal dinner at PRIME, before her wedding in 2013, and it was completely outstanding! We will definitely go again.
Incorrect address on websites. Small, open kitchen, not really scenic. Limited wine list and of the items they had, they had already run out of 3 choices.
On a positive note the food was good both appetizer and entry.
If we had a bigger party, it would have been tight and now room to enjoy ourselves.
Prime is my go to place. Always wonderful atmosphere, delishious food and exceptional service
There were only two tables occupied on a Thursday night leading me to believe SB is past its Prime. Service was average, steaks were slightly overcooked and dry. Poorest ribeye ever, in fact one had on Austrian Airlines surpasses this one. Too bad as our first visit last year was great, next visit was ok and thought we would give it another try.
Met up with an old friend and it was not busy when we were there for lunch so it allowed us to catch up and share some laughs without out disturbing the other guests. Been there for dinner before and it was much more lively. Overall good lunch but I was being healthy and I know there are some items that are decadent on the lunch menu and I am sure would have been exceptional - Lobster for lunch! That said come for dinner sometime and get a steak ... excellent but in both cases lunch and dinner ... wonderful staff.
I went to SB prime for my 27th birthday and really enjoyed the time I had while I was there. I ordered the swordfish which I have never had before and is not one of my favorite dishes. The service was excellent our waters were always full and the wine we selected was superb.
This was our second time to SBPrime. The first visit was excellent but this time while the service was exceptional, we found our strip loins a little tough. We both order them as medium rare and while they appeared cooked correctly the meat just didn't seem tender. I also ordered the roasted vegetables and found the asparagus to be burnt and dry on the best part - the tips. My husband also ordered the ceasar salad and he was very disappointed as it had hardly any dressing on it and what dressing there was, was very runny. Bread was also not provided but other tables did get some.
The dining area was small but very nice. The waiter took our drink order eventually. We waited 15 minutes to get our drinks. We had to pretty much beg for another. We weren't offered a third, so we went elsewhere. He was not attentive.
We ordered oysters. They were great.
I got swordfish. It was dry and flavorless and I did not enjoy it. I took a few small bites and I kindly let the waiter know. He took it from me & didn't say a word. No offer of another dish.
He wouldn't stay long enough to hear where we wanted the apps, so they ended up w/ me. I paid $117.00 for only 3 oysters & two bevs. Disappointed.
We have many events & I was hoping to bring people in. I don't know if I will be back. I cannot afford the very poor service.
We have had steak @Prime b4, and that's why we went back. Unfortunately this time food was disappointing. Steak was not well done,had blood all over my plate, from the "well done" steak. Took my steak back to grill it to the fullest, however my appetite was gone by then. :-( it was my husband's birthday and the waiter didn't give him a dessert on the house, just cause the food wasn't as we have ordered !!! (unlike KEG's or Chops service)
Otherwise atmosphere is very suitable for a romantic evening!
Food is over the top. Presentation outstanding. Nice relaxing meal. No rush.
