We enjoyed the food and the ambiance. While our server was not bad per se, for higher end steakhouses such as this (i.e. ~$200 for couple) we -- waited a fair bit to be introduced to server, drinks took a bit, had to ask for bread, server never topped off wine (and missed chance to sell us another bottle) ... all this and yet it was not packed.

Overall I would consider going back some day, but I am not rushing out to recommend it to the masses.

First visit after having been to related Middleton site on several occasions. Varied menu. Excellent service. A bit on the pricey side but portions were large and cooked to perfection.
Overall, a fine dining experience!

Have been here several times and have never been disappointed. They just launched a new menu with all the old favorites, but now they have much more pasta and different items. We all enjoyed our meals and shared several appetizers. The bacon is a MUST, the shrimp cocktail enormous and the French onion soup is excellent. Their salads are great as well. Make sure you leave room for dessert!

Another great time at Teresa's-- this time with just me and my wife to celebrate a special occasion! Started with awesome drinks at bar, with some of the coolest bartenders on the North Shore. When we were seated for dinner, it just got better. Super service the entire meal, and the food was perfect--love the new menu!

Extremely disappointed with our meals. Spent over $200 and we split an appetizer, had 3 drinks, and no dessert. Food was just OK, not worth ~$65 a meal. Will only go back if we get a gift card from friends/family.

Incredible experience from the moment we walked through the door till we left. The service is second to none & the food was on point. We shared the lobster tempura which was sooooo good & then my better half had the surf n turf which was a petite filet & stuffed shrimp, I had the 24oz porterhouse steak cooked which was cooked perfectly medium and it was melt in your mouth goodness. We finished with an enormous serving of different flavored gelato's which were outstanding. I cannot wait to return to Theresa's prime!

We were seated in our requested booth immediately when we arrived. The waiter (Dylan) was professional and unobtrusive and allowed us to enjoy our excellent cocktails without hovering. The food was well prepared and very tasty - the steaks were cooked to our specifications - Pittsburgh and Extra Well-Done - it was especially gratifying to find that the creamed spinach was nutmeg free - unlike some chichi restaurants these days. The prices are upscale but not unreasonable for the quality of ingredients and service.

Four Stars...

Although most was a nice presentation, the place is lacking people even though it was a hot night, other steakhouses were more active.. The steaks were Tender (Brant beef) but what was lacking is a true steakhouse flavor, the seasoning did not cut it or cooks lacked to properly season. Had Au gratin potatoes this too was lack of flavor and a good cheesiness to it. overall for a steakhouse did not have a Wow factor that would make you want to return fast. Beautiful decor but menu was good but it needs a little something to really bring it full house. There italian restaurant has better flavors and it works!

Teresa's has all the menu selections as the fine steakhouses in Boston, but without the hassle of driving and parking. The staff is superior, friendly and knowledgeable. The food is always fabulous!

We have come to expect nothing but the best from Prime and this visit didn't disappoint. Service was great and the food was outstanding. This is not a neighborhood "joint," but rather a wonderful steak house of the quality you would expect from a named Boston steakhouse, without having to make the drive into the City. We'll be back!

Everyone, from the Hostess to the Waitstaff, was very accommodating and very friendly! Waitstaff was spot on with any recommendation that was made to us. The food was perfect! Filet Mignon, was so tender you could cut it with a fork and perfect size! Definitely, worth the money! We took my son in law, who was visiting from out of state and we will definitely be bringing any of our guests there, again.

Bone in filet which is the most expensive entree was fatty and overcooked and needed to be replaced.
This was my birthday present and I was out of sync with the rest my party as a result.
We were all very disappointed and will not return. Wasn't worth the $200 plus tab.

The ambience was nice but service wasn't so great. It feels like the service doesn't meet up the the expectation of the look and feel of the restaurant. The wait for our food was long. And the two ribeye steaks we ordered looked like they completely burnt the outside of them. Cocktails were not great either. My sister totally couldn't drink hers and so that was a waste. The waitress didn't even ask about it. This place was a disappointment.

Went here to celebrate Mother's Day and was very pleased. A true steakhouse with a good variety of offerings. Two meals that stood out were the lamb chops as well as the very large portions of pock chops. Both were delicious. The table provided ample space for everyone to have adequate sitting room. Very comfortable. It was raining out but for some reason all the shades were drawn which made for a very dark atmosphere.

This was our second time dining here. The first was not so great, but we decided to try again and we are glad we did. Our waitress,Julie, was wonderful- very personable and accommodating!! A good waitress is extremely important and she was GREAT! My husband had the sirloin strip and said it was, by far, the best he's had and we have tried many of the popular steak houses. A generous pour on the drinks and a great wine list as well. Will definitely return.
