Prime 47 - Carmel Ratings and Reviews
We were there for Easter Brunch. The food was terrible for such an upscale restaurant. They never had Prime Rib available during the time we were dining 2 pm. The food in the warmers was dry and stuck in the pan. We had to ask for items to be remade. We left very undstisifued sad to say.
Simply fantastic. We went to celebrate a birthday, and the food and the service were impeccable. The wait staff was friendly, and on top of everything. The food was fresh, and just delicious. That was one of the best steaks I've ever eaten. The birthday message on our menus was a wonderful touch. I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who wants the best of the best. Just wonderful.
Dined there twice within a week. Had a bad experience the first time and returned with a gift certificate as a result. Same issue: We told the waiter "steaks done medium, we want it pink, not red" - He said I will tell the kitchen medium +. Steak clearly came out that look of medium rare with the internal being purple/red rare. Disappointing, close to my house. Cancelling my group of 20 in two weeks. I just don't understand how the kitchen cannot cook a steak correct at a steak house.
The service, food and décor were excellent! The hostess and wait staff were very attentive but not overly so. I included a note in the reservation that my wife and I were celebrating our March birthdays. Staff provided nice extra touches that included Happy Birthday printed on the menu, a glass of bubbly, tasty dessert and photo which was printed, framed and given to us on the spot! We asked for our seafood to be grilled which was done to perfection...grilled seafood isn't something we've found easy to get in Indiana. We've visited the Prime 47 downtown several times while attending performances at Bankers Life but find the service and convenience (we live in Carmel) to be much better at the Carmel facility.
Our dinner reservations were early evening and most patrons were at the bar, not in the dining area. However, if the food and service we received during our visit is an example of how they do business, we will return.
I came in with my date. I am deaf and she isn't. When we first seated at the table, our waiter came and put all of his attentions on her JUST BECAUSE he and her can communicate otherwise me and him couldn't. I have asked for pen and paper in gesture was. He was fully aware that I am deaf and yet nothing had improved after knowing the fact he has a deaf customer. I wouldn't recommend any hearing people to go there because if they were deaf, they would have to deal what I dealt either way. The food was good for sure. Well professional staffed.
The steak was great. The ribeye literally felt like cutting butter. Super tender and flavorful. I'm normally a filet person, but this ribeye was great.
Don't let them tell you the shrimp cocktail is better than St Elmo's or Harry and Izzys. The shrimp itself is better and very good, the sauce is spicy too. But the flavor isn't nearly as good nor does it punch you in the back of the head quite as hard
This was a birthday celebration dinner. From the moment we arrived the staff were absolutely great. They had reserved a very nice table for us decorated with a red rose for the birthday girl and a specially printed menu with her name . The entire evening was very pleasant. The food was well prepared and well served. Almost all dishes were plentiful and tasty. The tuna dish could use some help. The tuna was cooked Ok but it was siting on an enormous pile of tasteless mashed potatoes. It could have been better if they had served fewer potatoes with a little more reduction with the tuna on the side not on top of the potatoes. Similarly the crab cake appetizer could use something more to bring it to life. It was very bland and almost cold.
The wine recommendation from the server was quite good.
Generally, it was a fun evening and we strongly recommend Prime 47 for all occasions.
The list of starters has many great choices. Our steak tataki was excellent. The filet with crab Oscar was perfectly prepared, as was the salmon. Service was excellent as well. Attentive, knowledgeable and friendly describes our server, Olaf.
The low point of the meal was the dessert. The singnature cookie was barely cooked and just not that great. The yam cake was quite good, but just not good enough to be 'he icing on the cake' that is the dinner menu. We were told a new pastry chef is on board and will be revamping the dessert offerings soon. We are looking forward to a return trip to Prime 47.
Food was amazing and delicious! I had the porterhouse with black truffle butter. My father had the blackened salmon and my sister had the filet mignon. Everything was cooked to perfection. I even got to try a specialty craft drink of the night called the "Shark Attack," made by the wonderful Bartender Laura. With dinner we enjoyed a fabulous Spanish wine called Tinto Iturria and learned from the Manager Kevin, who was very knowledgeable about a lot of wines, that the owners of the Spanish vineyard actually live here in Carmel! The only thing topping the food and drink was the service by our very attentive servers, Olaf and Kelly. Will DEFINITELY be back soon!!!
The service was terrible, no actually it was the worst! Our waitress showed up at our table three times. One to take a drink order which took almost 20 minutes to get, the food order and to deliver our check. My wife's steak was served cold on a warm plate and the we were double charged for the steak as she blamed it on the computer. No one was interested in correcting the situation. Our waitress never followed up for additional drinks or to see if we were satisfied with our meals. Our waitress even commented that we received really poor service but she was just too busy! When you pay a premium price you should get great service and quality food we got neither. Beware of Prime 47 there are many better options.
Food was very good. They were understaffed on the floor, and totally flustered. 15 minutes before we were approached for the first order. They apologized, however we felt like we were on their schedule, not ours. We will try again to see if it was a one-off circumstance...
The service was spectacular right get from the beginning. We were seated at our reservation time. Might not be a big deal but for Valentine's Day, I was impressed that they maintained their schedule throughout the evening. When we were seated, we were promptly waited by a young man that offered us various water options. The wait staff was ver attentive even on a busier evening. Our food was exquisite. Perfectly seasoned and cooked. I enjoyed the space between the tables and felt very private. We didn't feel rushed and had a great experience!
I took my wife for a Valentine's dinner. The food was good and the service was good until we were almost finished eating. As we neared the end of out meal the server's assistant took my drink glass, I was expecting a refill, he never came back. As soon as we finished eating the server took out plates and returned with the check and two chocolate covered strawberries. We had planned on getting desert, we were not offered a desert menu and I never received a refill.
We were under the impression they wanted us to leave. I understand that there was a crowed since it was Valentine's and people were waiting for tables, that's why we made a reservation. We spent over $160 and would have spent more if we were given the option of having desert.
What started as a nice meal with good service, ended up being a disappointment. Overall, I cannot say that we were satisfied.
We went to Prime 47 for a Valentine's Day dinner. We had a great table and the atmosphere was very romantic. We had wonderful service that night and our waiters were on-top of our every need. They also gave us great suggestions on what food/ drink to order and we never felt rushed. The food was delicious. The steaks were prepared just the way we ordered and I liked the variety of sides that were on the menu.
We went for dinner the Saturday before Valntine's Day and like many other restaurants it was busy. Fortunately for us, it was also surprisingly well organized to handle the crowd. The serving staff as well as the kitchen did a very nice job. The service was very good as was the food. The lobster bisque and the mussels were well prepared and very tasty. The salads and the scallops and sea bass main dishes were equally as good. We also enjoyed the drinks, wine and desert.
It is definitely worth going back soon.
This has become one of our favorite places to go. The food is very good, and Laura, our waitress we request each time, is the best service person we have ever had at any restaurant. This is a great place to eat and socialize. Also, the entertianment on Tuesday and Saturday is another reason we keep coming back. The singer, Matt Rouch, is extremely talented.
Went to Prime 47 for my Birthday and it was great! The service was great with the servers being very friendly and the food was delicious. Prime 47 is one of our favorite restaurants and they did nothing to change our opinion on this visit, it was fantastic and we will be back.
Maybe I set my expectations too high for my first visit to the restaurant but I was generally disappointed. The wait staff did a fantastic job and if it wasn't for the wait team that took care of my wife and I, this review would not be so good. Crab cake appetizer was great, chunks of meat, little breading and the remoulade was excellent. Entrees, however, were a bit disappointing. I ordered the dry aged KC strip (signature item), medium, as the restaurant's definitions are a half degree lower than the typical, which seems odd. I normally order my NY strips medium rare but the description seems comparable to the standard "rare" definition so I opted to go up to medium. It was good but for a signature item I expected better and I have had better. Glad we had the experience. Great wait staff that made the experience a good evening out. Unfortunately just not a restaurant that I would say is a "must go back".
Meal was fantastic. Tried the Kung Pao Calimari; it was outstanding. Ate in the bar to watch the Super Bowl so was a little louder than rest of restaurant but definitely not too loud. Laura was the bartender and took care of the bar and the tables in the bar area. She did a super job taking care of so much territory.
We came here to try it out as part of our local pre fixe menu week with some friends. The food was great, but the service was incredibly slow. My husband and I each ordered a drink from the bar and it took more than half an hour for them to come out. We didn't get our drinks until after the appetizer and the soup/salads were out. I would give them another chance though to see if it's like that all the time or if maybe they were just overwhelmed that one night.
We tried the baked goat cheese appetizer and it was excellent! Would also recommend their Crab Oscar add on. The sauce was seasoned perfectly.
Our experience was fine until after dinner.. we had to wait for a drink refill for over 30 minutes, dessert did not arrive until 45 minutes after we finished dinner. Took two requests to see the manager who apologized they had not staffed appropriately to accommodate the customers and would talk about it tomorrow and use it as a learning opportunity... and repeated the statement over again. We were in the center of the room and felt completely ignored. ... it was nice to receive a cold call from then inquiring about our experience.... hope they use it for a learning opportunity. Too bad because we went as a participant in Devour Indy program.
