Seated at 7:15 on a not too busy Saturday night. Meal arrived at 8:45. When we asked why it took so long they said a party of 8 came in at the same time we did. Really?

My Filet was delicious! Waitress was a little strange, asking us how our food looked. Waitress was also stopping by excessively. Waitress was removing dishes while I was still eating my entree. Restaurant is too dark.
Expensive food yet the food was awesome.

Vero Prime is the gem of the Vero Beach Restaurant scene. I am a frequent diner at VP for good reason... impeccable service, best salmon in Vero (yes, at a steak house), gracious staff, reasonable prices, and a genuine commitment to excellent dining. Best of all... the wait staff doesn't hover and annoy. They just get it! Energy at VP on food quality and service, not the soft items becoming so much the rage in Vero restaurants. Enjoy...

We went to Vero Prime a year or so ago and it was much better then. Their options for diners are poor. A steak house where you can't get a regular baked potato (only twice baked & loaded or potato wedges) or a normal salad (only grilled Caesar or wedge)? And no ranch dressing? The duck wing appetizer was great and the wedge potatoes were good, too. But the wedge salad was poor - brown on the "wedge" end and wilted on the leaf end. Signature steak (tenderloin shoulder) was properly cooked but lacking in flavor. One of the prime ribs we got was drastically undercooked. We ordered medium (not medium rare) but received raw. Waitress was inflexible on salad and side orders. When we pointed out the problems with the prime rib, she basically shrugged her shoulders and did nothing. We won't be going back or recommending this restaurant to anyone.

Four of us went for my Sister and Brother-in-law's anniversary. We all had different dishes and they all were fantastic. The Prime signature steak I had was done exactly to my medium-rare order. The only bad part of the meal was the server not getting the two separate checks right. It took her four times to get it right! It was about 40 minutes after our meal was done until we got the right checks paid for. In spite of the server I would definitely go back to this restaurant.

Good steaks. Reasonable value. Ordinary sides. Ruth's Cris it's not. Poor vegetarian options (I know it's a steakhouse but not everyone is a carnivore, you know?). I really want to like this restaurant but there is always something wrong. This time: Overcooked onion rings, broken cappuccino machine, no real sugar packets. Last time: No half & half (come on-there's a 7-11 across the street), cold greasy string fries. Service is slow, confused and piecemeal. I'll keep trying. There are not many good steaks in Vero. Perhaps they will get their act together.

This was mine and my husband's second time dining at Vero Prime. It was absolutely delicious the first time and did not disappoint a second time. A few of the dishes we have had: prime rib, Parmesan crusted salmon, and caramel and sea salt cheesecake. Ahhh, if I could afford to have a personal chef I'd want them to be from this restaurant ;)

We've lived in Vero Beach for 1 year now, and have always had Vero Prime on our to-do list regarding trying new restaurants. The ambiance and service was excellent, but the food definitely did not live up to our expectations; especially considering the price tags. My wife's prime rib was decent but not special and not as good as we've had at a lower price point. My porterhouse was cooked correctly, but seasoned poorly. There was also an overpowering lemon flavor that distracted from what seemed like a quality cut of meat. Based on our experience, I do not recommend Vero Prime. There are many restaurants offering better fare with far less damage to your wallet.

The atmosphere is great it has great lighting for romantic date but our table was wobbly my husband said something to our waitress she said she would let somebody know so they could come and fix it but nobody came then when she brought my tea It had two cracks in the glass for a newer restaurant I would expect things to be maintained better. I ordered the Vero prime signature steak and it was OK nothing special for the price but for dessert I ordered the chocolate paradise and that was the highlight of my dinner it was chocolate perfection

 (Charleston)·Dined on August 8, 2017

We had a very enjoyable dinner, having the Wood-Fired grilled ribeye steak with cheddar macaroni and cheese mashed potatoes. The second entree was the fillet medallions with mushroom risotto in a wonderful beef reduction sauce.

The macaroni and cheese portion was small but adequate and the mashed potatoes were not made with butter or cream. The filet was not grilled and this was a disappointment because it would have accented the flavors of the mushroom risotto.

We also ordered dessert. The bread pudding was a total disappointment and the most expensive item on the dessert menu. It seemed that the chef had simply used honey buns and crumb cakes from the local gas station was awful as a Yankee I appreciate my bread puddings. II desert a little tart of key lime pie was very delicious however the sugar was still crystallized.

Overall we did enjoy our meal and the atmosphere the bar is separate from the dining room and it seemed that those in the bar were having a grand time. One enters the bar through the entrance on the east side of the building.

So we give this place a try again I'm knowing that the medallions were not grilled over the wood fire we would request that they do so.

We would also skip the dessert unless they find a new pastry chef.

I am never one to leave reviews, as I am a restaurant manager myself. I know more than anyone that sometimes restaurants have days worse than others, and I happened to go on a day they weren't at their best. I was highly recommended by a friend to go for a date just the other day, I knew it was expensive but I figured it would be worth it. We arrived at 7:20 for a 7:30 reservation and were seated immediately, a friendly server came over shortly after and took our drink order. By 7:50 we had recieced our appetizers and placed our order for our meal. Ribeye rare with a lobster tail and a Fillet Minon medium with truffle fries and other sides for us to share. By 8:20, we were still waiting for our food. The waitress, whom had been very attentive from the beginning, finally came and apologized for the wait saying there were a few parties (which we saw arrive after we had placed our entree order) and the kitchen was a bit backed up. I was surprised that a manager had not come over to let us know our food would be out soon. Our food was out by 8:45, and everything was perfect except the Fillet was cooked rare, rather than medium. I was not asked to cut into the steak to check the temp, which surprised me, so I waiting until around 8:55 when I was able to get the waitresses attention (as she had a full section) to have it up cooked. By 9:05 my steak came back and it was medium well if not well, but I did not want to complian anymore. We paid our bill, which was $150 or so dollars, I left a $32 dollar tip. We lingered for a few moments, hoping a manager would just touch the table and give an apology or ask how things had been (if he had not been informed). I guess I'm just disappointed, and I wish a manager had just stopped by. I don't say this because I wanted anything off the bill, if I had I would have asked to speak to one, it would have been nice to have someone apologize for our meal taking over an hour to come out.
I may try them again, but we shall see.

Lady in Front was a doll. So was our waitress, The rolls were good and hot. My Mini Lobster Roll Appetizer was delicious, but did not love crabcakes. It was a steak house, but they were out of the 4 steaks my husband wanted. It is a Steak House? It was only 8:30pm on a Friday. The place was dead. The prime rib came out very very fatty. They were nice enough to give my husband a thicker cut and have the fat trimmed. We have been to other Steak Houses in New York, Orlando etc. This was not a Steak House. More a local restaurant. Again the Lady is front was a sweetheart. She Came by several times to make sure we were okay. The waitress was great too. Maybe it was just a bad night. Maybe we misjudged by thinking it was a steakhouse. Not very happy when we left.
