For all the reviewers who've said this is as good as a NYC steakhouse, I don't think they've been to NYC steakhouses. The food is adequate, nothing special; however, the service is very poor. We were seated at 6:35PM, our entrees didn't arrive until 7:55PM. We asked our server several times when our food would be out, he kept replying "it's coming soon", instead of "I'll check on it" or "I'll see what's going on". There was absolutely no apology for the delay when it finally did come. I spoke to management on our way out of the restaurant, who's reply to me was "I didn't know". I didn't realize it was the customer's responsibility to alert the restaurant management of a problem with an order in the kitchen. For a restaurant that charges NYC prices..... Fairfield County deserves better.

Everything about this restaurant was just ok. I expected more than mediocre food, service, ambiance, given the price point. There was no effort to make our meal special in any way, even though I relayed that we were celebrating two birthdays. We won’t be coming back as there are so many great restaurants in the area.

Three of us had brunch. Overall very good. I had an omelette that was alittle overdone, while a side of bacon was alittle underdone. Two others had eggs Benedict, which was very good. Drinks were very good. I would return.

We had an excellent dining experience this past Friday. For starters they have a terrific menu with choices that should satisfy everyone. There were 4 of us and each one ordered something different. We were all happy with both food and service and anxious to return in the near future. I highly recommend this Restaurant.

Every time we have been there and ask for our steak to be medium well and well done, we always have to send it back. The wait staff was not very apologetic. Really not sure we are ever going back because it happens every time.

We love Washington Prime. Our waiter was Webster - so professional and attentive. The No. 99 and a Margarita to start us off. For an appetizer - we got the artichoke dip and for dinner - Beef Wellington and the Scallops. Yummy! For dessert - the chocolate mousse encased in white and dark chocolate with some Cappuccinos. Richie is a great host. We have never been disappointed here and will be back!

Everything was excellent (consistent with our previous pre-Covid visits). The host and staff are professional, welcoming and gracious. We were a party of 4 - everyone was extremely happy with their food. (Presentation, Quality, and Taste) We ordered a couple extra items to share which were also delicious. Highly recommend Washington Prime.

Really every aspect of this meal was spot on. First time there, won’t be my last. I was wowed by the menu and it did not disappoint in the least. We were 5 pp and had quite a few things. The standouts for me were the burrata and eggplant appetizer, the crispy oysters and the roasted oysters, the lobster risotto (a special), the onion rings, the apple situation dessert and the tuxedo dessert. Really great blackberry cocktail as well. (Also a special.)

Always highly recommend their unique menu, personable staff and great atmosphere. We bring family and guests here on special visits every time.

There was only one negative experience when we came. They had an issue with the kitchen that was unavoidable. However, things happen and BOTH of the owners personally made things right for us. Straight up class. This on top of everything they offer makes this place a must go to.

Always a great meal and a great experience!

It took 20 minutes before anyone came to our table to even greet us hello. However, once the waitress did arrive, she was very lovely. Raw bar was great. Main courses were average. Would return to sit at the bar for drinks and appetizers.

Went for Brunch. Partner said one of the best Bloody Mary's he's had. He also liked the Traditional Eggs Bene, wished there was a bit more Hollandise-said it was very good. I had the French Toast which was also very good. Our first time there, we plan to go back and have dinner.

Never disappointed when I eat at Washington Prime. Have had holiday parties in their private room with large groups and also dinner with smaller groups. Food is always outstanding, Last night we had a variety of apps, the steak tartar was AMAZING, highly recommend, shrimp cocktail were very large and sweet, everyone loved the bacon and the ribs. For main we had tomahawk steaks, melted in your mouth, but my favorite was the 1lb lobster tail that we ordered for the table, was cooked perfect. Even had deserts. Always a favorite and can never go wrong with Washington Prime, they were very accommodating; increased my reservation for 4 additional people at the last minute and rearranged the tables for us.

Had a great time at WP. I ordered the halibut special. It was overall overcooked and just not well put together. A stark contrast to my boyfriend’s perfectly cooked ribeye with lobster tail and 2 sides. I guess my suggestion is to stick with their specialty - steak. Because it far exceeds some other options.

Made reservations at WP to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We were taken to our table by Dave and got lucky enough to be seated in a private room. It made our night even more special and intimate. Our waitress was so lovely and attentive. We had the Carolina ribs as an appetizer, and they were amazing! The meat literally melted off the bone. I had a mango margarita, and my boyfriend had the sono spring. Both tasted delicious! My boyfriend had the tomahawk steak with charred asparagus for the entre, and I did the prime burger with truffle fries and a side of mac n cheese. At the end, our waitress brought out a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a sparkler candle to surprise my boyfriend. Dave came to check in on us during our meal and even took some pictures for us at the end. Everything about WP exceeded my expectations. We can't wait to come back!
