Primo Grill Ratings and Reviews
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
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.
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.
As always, a delicious meal with great service. This time we had a new waitress, Kaitlin, who was such fun and a delight - as well as Charlie, the owner and chef, who chatted with us at our table (since the evening wasn't as booked as it can be). We chose a lean option and the kitchen crew helped to keep the oil down and calories minimal. We can't wait to return!
This has become one of our favorite Tacoma spots. We love that they actually do locally source their ingredients, and they even list those sources on the menu (many restaurants claim an "effort" to locally source their ingredients, and then you'll see a Food Services of America truck unloading out back before opening). Their menu is specialized but has great variety, and it's just consistently amazing.
The food here is excellent and always an interesting combination of flavors. Also very friendly service and we never feel rushed. My only complaint is that it is too noisy so if you have more than 4 people at a table, it is difficult to hear one another. But I keep coming back because of the quality, freshness and creativity of the food.
I found this place while looking online for a restaurant and it didn't disappoint! The food was really good and full of flavor. The only negatives are the prices (kind of on he higher end) and it was cold inside, we all kept our coats on. We will definitely return.
The cappellini with truffles were a special, i normally only order my amazing pork chop but i tried something different. The noodles were horrible and the dish had no flavor. I was bummed. Still paid full price. Definitely learned to order what u know! Still dig it there. 💖
Primo is my favorite restaurant in our area (Tacoma, Lakewood, UP) and we go there often. The service is excellent, the food suburb and the atmosphere lively and upbeat. Every dish has always been delicious - we keep going back. I cannot recommend this lovely place highly enough.
We have been going to Primo for years and always enjoyed it, but this last dinner was exceptional even for them. The prosciutto appetizer was so good I thought about just ordering a couple more and making that my dinner. Ambience didn't get 5 stars because I'd prefer a little less noise (but that criticism applies to virtually every restaurant in existence these days). Service didn't get 5 stars because of a couple of smal things (like an order for a glass of wine that didn't get put into the bar for a while) but it was Valentines Day and the place was very busy. All in all, it would have been very hard for the experience to get any better.
