Primo Grill Ratings and Reviews
Recommended by people who live in Tacoma & we had a concert to go to - so ate there with our daughter/boyfriend ahead of time. Our first time & we had a regular menu & were in time to order off the Happy Hour Menu - we ordered lots of items - mostly from Happy Hour & were really satisfied with the quality of our food - mussels, sprouts, pizza, fries, steak etc & do not miss the sticky toffee pudding or gelato (choc/hazlenut) for dessert - pleasantly surprised by the total price - all staff were friendly, attentive and very professional. Too bad it's not close to where we live as it would become a very regular place to frequent.
We had never been to Primo, I wanted a new experience. Was concerned with the Open Table design. But it worked for us. Love the large open windows to allow fresh air.
Food was excellent, fresh, enough yet not too much and interesting. I had my first cocktail that I liked so much I had two...I am not a drinker.
Over all good evening out with husband who is picky but said he'd come back. Thanks for the bright cheery service from every one. Waitress was particularly friendly and informed making us smile.
Our family visited Primo for Father's Day; we made the drive up from Olympia for the occasion. The menu is diverse in options and offers a number of creative dishes. Every member of my family loved their entree. We were placed in the back where it is quieter, and we could easily converse. The service is excellent as well. We think Primo is worth the 45-minute drive for us!
Great experience for conducting our not-too-serious business meeting. Server was perfect; hostess effectively accommodated our seating request. Great "addition" to Tacoma's funking 6th Avenue district. Everyone had a great meal!
I must confess: I already love promo. But hey- when it keeps on being great, it deserves another review, right? Primo is my first choice always- and I'm never disappointed. Food superb, staff friendly and fun, atmosphere upbeat always ( sometimes more robust than a quiet night) and now that nicer weather is here , the windows are open often. Primo is our 24/7 go to restaurant. I can't recommend it highly enough !!
I hadn't been here for several years, since before they moved to their current location. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and drinks. We love a well crafted cocktail and both the drinks we had were excellent. We loved the appetizers and pizzas we had for dinner. All of it was delicious. I'll be back again for sure.
Primo grill was very accommodating. I had requested a window table due to my special needs adult. A window helps to ensure he stays in his seat. A window was only available in the lounge but my party wasn't all adults. So Primo Grill set us up in a very private area where my sp nds adult could wander around, & my hard of hearing mother & sister could hear conversation due to the remote/private area of the table. But best of all for me & my husband, we could relax & enjoy the dinner because our adult "child" wasn't in anyone's way. It was lovely & I'm very grateful. The food & service were outstanding! I would highly recommend Primo solely based on the food & service. The special accommodations for us was truly icing on the proverbial cake! Thank you!
Our second time here and a great local spot with fresh food and friendly service. When the wrong entree was brought out for one member of our party our server sought to correct the situation quickly and brought out a complimentary appetizer for that person. Pasta Ragu, brick chicken and king salmon special were enjoyed by everyone at the table. Will continue to return when visiting our daughter at UPS
While the food was very good for the most part. The noise level was way to high for those of us in our seventies therefore we had trouble hearing eachother. I believe the prices were quite high as well. Parking is a nightmare.
We were party of eight people. The service was nothing spectacular, server was very rude and defensive when we ask for more information about the 18% extra "already" included for gratuity for all (except gift cards or orders to go), we just wanted to ask general reason. Fettuccini with salmon was extremely good, steak had a lot of fat but with original presentation and good flavor, but still had a lot of fat and lasagna was over cooked and crispy... Honestly we were planning to pay more as gratuity but because server acted very defensive we decided not to give more, she went directly and stated: "you can speak with my manager if you want, and if you have more 20 mins.." not appropriate comment for the kind of restaurant, this made our nice experience sort of disappointment.
The food was good and service was great too. It was Saturday night but the service was a bit slow. We had 6:00 reservations and had to run into the theatre for our 7:30 play.
$100 for two glasses of wine, one appetizer, one salad, one entree and a bread plate (two of us shared the meal). Seemed a bit pricy for the Tacoma.
We celebrated my wife's birthday as a family and the food and service were excellent. While the table we were placed at was not a favorite I suspect it was driven by the seven people and an infant present. We have often over the years celebrated family events and occasions at Primo Grill it never disappoints.
Primo remains a favorite because of the food. This time it was too noisy for conversation across the table because of a family birthday group next to us, but that happens sometimes. A late evening dinner would be better for a date or even a conversation.
We were having dinner before a show down the street. Everything was great until our waitress forgot about us and then disappeared. We waited more than half an hour from when she dropped off the dessert menu until the hostess closed us out. We were late to the show but luckily they still let us in. Food was great, but would not recommend if you need to be somewhere else afterwards.
This restaurant is a favorite of ours. The food is reliably excellent, the service is attentive without being intrusive, and the ambiance is cozy and comfortable. Make reservations, they fill up pretty early, and with good reason.
