I had a business dinner at Prime Steakhouse. The scallop appetizer was wonderful, the wedge salad was very tasty, the small NY Strip was prepared to perfection. While not on the menu the waitress managed to talk the kitchen into fixing a plate of fresh strawberries for me. Everything was great and the service was just right. Thanks

Prime Steakhouse was able to squeeze us in on a last minute reservation on a Saturday night. We sat at a huge corner table in the bar area. It was cozy, we could watch the NFL playoffs and we had a view of the street. The owner was there and was very friendly. He showed us his wine collection and... More

We had dinner on a Tuesday night at 7:00 at Prime and it was perfect. It was not crowded, as we expected on a weeknight, but it was active and warm. We chose a table in the corner, large enough for four, very comfortable for two. Plenty of room between tables. Our intent was to relax and enjoy a quiet... More

The food was very good. The service so so, the waitress acted like she'd rather be elsewhere. The atmosphere was neat. However, watch out not to sit too close, you can't have a nice private dinner conversation if you are too close to others. They have a good selection.

I went here with a group of 10 people while on a business trip. Steaks were excellent. Atmosphere was nice. We had a private table in a private room which was nice and quiet where we could all hear eachother talk. All and all, this was an excellent restaurant.

Best wine list in Syracuse and price very well. Food as usual was great, right temperature and staff and owner were very attentive. Unusual for Syracuse. Steak prepared the way we asked and the pork chop was nice and juicy not the dry chops at other places around town

We had a great meal, and got to meet the SU Women's Basketball Coach, he had the whole team there for dinner

Sometimes good food is like poetry. From the service to the bill, you will appreciate your dish of choice and the friendly atmosphere that's served with it. A review, no matter how well it's written, wouldn't do Prime Steakhouse justice, it's a place that you must experience for yourselves. We thank Daniel, Colleen, and Crista for making this more than... More

2 1/2 hours and we still hadn't seen our steaks. Sat at a table where the owner repeatedly asked us to move so he could grab wine. Took 30 minutes for our first round of drinks. The menu is expensive, the service; mediocre and the owner is a complete dick. I have never been so disappointed in a restaurant and... More
