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

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

Fully packed and after begging the owner they gave us a table. obviously the service was poor (we had been warned because they were on high season season and understaffed). Great selection of wine and great food but... More

My wife and stopped by Saturday evening. Told it was a 30 min wait despite tables clearly open. Went straight to the bar (don't mind drinking as I wait). Wife had to ask bartender for a drink. Bartender didn't ask me as i was sitting right next to her. Receptionist never came to seat us. Instead we decided to eat... More

While dropping out son in school we picked this place for a farewell dinner with his roommate and family. The food was very good and the sides were big enough to share. I'd have to say service was slow but since we were having a good time it was ok but it is the reason we didn't give it a... More
