23rd Birthday celebration
We've gone on and off for 10 yrs and the food has always been excellent
We went to the special St. Patrick's day menu and, as usual, was not disappointed! We had the Irish Stew and King Salmon with champ (potato and green onion). We started out with fresh oysters and finished with an apple hand pie a-la-mode. Everything was wonderful and we always have a great time watching the "cooking show"! I love to cook and get ideas while we sit. The staff is great and friendly and make excellent meal suggestions.
We had a fantastic time on our dinner date. The cocktails were absolutely delicious and we polished off every last bit of food. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable and the whole team worked together to accommodate our food allergies.
We went on a double date here. All four of us loved it! The Mussels, Fungi Pizza, Chicken Entree, Cesar Salad, and Calamari were delicious. Two of us are on the ketogenic diet and found eating here a breeze. We are very grateful for that. We also enjoyed the ambiance and quality service, and our appetizer was ready in a jiffy. We can't wait to come back!
We have a friend moving out of state soon and she really wanted to go to Primo Grill before she moved. We were so happy we went. We loved each others company and loved loved loved the food.
Cute/ modern set up. Great bar selections, local eats, nice vibe, AMAZING BRUSSEL SPROUTS, friendly staff.
Date night, Primo always delivers a topshelf experience of great food and drink.
I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant insofar as food and service are concerned. However, the lack of parking is a major issue and can start your evening off in a stressful way.
The only thing that put me off was management's policy of adding an 18% service charge to all checks. It then went on to disclose that 70% of that 18% was paid directly to the staff and that the remaining 30% was used to offset higher minimum wages and health care costs. Translates to "If the owner was honest he would up his prices about 5% and keep his greedy little hands out of his employees pockets." The fact and amount that I tip a server is a private matter between the server and me.
Our small group of friends enjoyed a wonderful evening at Primo Grill. The atmosphere was lively, open and modern, the menu creative and varied, the service prompt and excellent. Definitely will return.
Valentines dinner - we were seated promptly but waited 15 min before anyone came with water and waited on us. We ordered saffron calamari, beef tenderloin, and sturgeon special entrees. The calamari came out quick but was luke warm and quickly cooled. The tenderloin was ordered medium rare but came out blue and unrested - tough and chewy. The sturgeon was enjoyable, as was the Panna cotta desert. The cocktails were great. Several times silverware was forgotten by the waitress.
Overall we were underwhelmed with the execution of the service and food. The place is nice, though our seating area was quite cold. The food seemed rushed and uncared for, which was the biggest disappointment especially at the price point.
It was pleasant.
Good food, friendly service. Best to be seated in the main room, not the rather bare and chilly back room.
We were there on a busy valentine's day. They had their entire menu available, as well as a special menu. The staff was delightful, attentive, and knowledgeable. They made time to snap pics even though they had a full house. The food was incredible. I'm still telling everyone about it!
Valentine’s Day. We haven’t been there for several years. Everything was excellent can’t wait to go back
Went here on Valentine’s Day. Our noodles were not all the way done. Food came out super fast as if it was already plated before we ordered. Overall this place is overpriced for food and drinks that are not worth it. Very disappointed
Went here for Valentine’s Day and the servers were very nice, the food was super good and they gave all the lady’s a tulip which was really nice
My spouse and I have eaten at Primo Grill many times and we have never been disappointed with a meal. The coffee is excellent in both regular and decaf.
Upon arrival my wife was greeted with a tulip before we were led to our table. We had immediate service which continued throughout dinner. Everything was impeccable, the calamari app, the Rib steak, the Smoked Salmon fettuccini. Garnished with seared Brussels sprouts scallop potatoes. A must visit when your in Tacoma.
outstanding restaurant! second year coming! definitely will return! professional service and welcoming atmosphere!
Excellent experience the food was prepared beautifully. We had an early Valentine meal and the atmosphere was well suited for an intimate conversation. The food server was attentive without being intrusive.
Our waiter was exceptionally friendly. Great customer service. Highly recommend.
We love coming to the Primo. The food is outstanding and the wait staff was really great. Sorry we haven’t been able to go as often as our schedule has allowed. Definitely going to rework our schedules . A true Tacoma gem.
We enjoyed happy hour and what a wonderful value and tasty food. The Brussel sprouts were amazing and very well prepared. The house red wine was great @$6 per glass. Parking was a bit of an issue, but after the second time around the block, we got lucky. I would highly recommend the venue and appreciated knowing in advance that they charge an 18% service fee. Service was wonderful and we had more than one server - when one noticed our glasses were getting low, she stopped by. Another noticed we were ready to order and came right over to us. Great experience.
Went to Primo for dinner prior to a concert at Jazzbones. They were swampped, so service was kind of slow, but I get that. The food was all around very good and very rich. Prices were a bit high, but a fun, local neighborhood resturant kind of feel. And about two blocks from Jazzbones, so that's fun.
This was a great find for us. We had been looking for a good farm to table type of restaurant and Primo Grill fit the bill. The food was tasty, the service was good, the drinks were excellent, and the ambiance just right. I would go back again! Highly recommend!!
Birthday dinner for my wife --- great food and atmosphere....just right. Take a leap and choose the Primo Grill...you won't be disappointed.
Small but very chic. Very good service.
Had a nice quite table...great wait staff..we all (4) enjoyed our meals...
Al in all...a nice evening..
We always have fantastic food at Primo. And the service is excellent . They always have fresh fish specials which we always enjoy , as well as great desserts . This is our go to restaurant several times s month.
Family birthday gathering... a little spendy, although the food and service were above average. I was surprised that the mandated 18% service charge was added pre-sales tax. Quite a bite.
Never disappointed with the food! I always enjoys the food and the staff!
Always a great experience with friendly, professional service!
Remains one of our “Go To” restaurants in Tacoma.
Food is superb!
Had the sole special for dinner. Very good, sauce was a little heavy on the lemon, but went well with the sole.
Loved the fish special. Staff were helpful for guests. Hand pie was spectacular
I consider Primo Grill one of the best restaurants in Tacoma.
The quality of food and service is superb. It is wonderful to have food made simply and well, with attention to elegance. And the ambience is relaxed and elegant too. Thank you!
Poor service. Wait staff drops something off and runs away before we have time to ask for more water. I had pasta with duck ragu. Bland bland and bland.
Exceptional eggplant and spaghetti dishes
One of our absolute favorites! I had the crab cakes and they were delicious! Never disappointed.
