Prime 93 Ratings and Reviews
As a person who has worked in the food industry for over a decade I pride myself in patience and understanding when there is a "rush" and that things can be a bit chaoctic. However, For a $200 meal I would have expected a lot more out of this "fine dining" experience. The server was pleasant but extremely far behind and that happens .The managers and other support staff were walking around twiddling their thumbs while she ran around like a chicken with her head cut off. Team work people!!! Cater to your guests we're not at Applebee's.
Maybe I missed something but google recommends you as an upscale dining experience....
The Appetizers took about an hour to receive.They were delicious but let's be honest after a bottle of wine and no food MCDonalds French fries would have done the trick. It then took another 2 hours before we received our dinner. Our food was absolutely exceptional and had the time and service aligned would have been well worth the money. The manager did give us a discount but that's never fun when you are out expecting to have a dining experience of higher gratitude. We knew and fully anticipated on dropping a few hundred bucks. This evening had no spending cap. Sometimes you must treat yourself!
I would recommend moving your computer system from the dining room into a quiet nook. Servers complaining about their tip is tacky and it felt like I was at home a Golden Coral.
I'm not trying to sound harsh,your staff is pleasant, the restaraunt was very clean and the food was "out of this world".
Due to the perfection of the food I think we would be willing to come back for a second try. I'll remain optimistic for a future visit.
We waited 70 minutes for our meal. During this time we received original glasses of ice tea, with no refills received. We never received rolls,beans, etc. we had to ask for everything in order to get it. When we received our meal the steak was well done.we ordered it medium rare. They had to re cook it. The customers next to us experienced the same service. Not sure if they had a new cook. We usually have very good food and service.
My husband and I were here for Valentine's Day. Our reservation was at 7:15pm, we got there at 7pm and were seated immediately. Our waitress was nice and brought our appetizers in no time. As for the dinner....we waited for exactly 1 hour and 40 minutes to get it! My husband and I were ready to leave by the time the brought out his cold steak and my over-cooked salmon. Really bad management, people who were getting there way after we got there were getting their dinner served(only the special). We are definitely not going back for any special occasions.
we have been going to prime 93 for the past 7 years. We go there every year for our anniversary, and a couple of other times when we want a nice meal. We've always gotten good service, good food, good atmosphere and we've always recommended it to others. However, our valentine dinner was so disappointing on every level.
Very poor service, felt very rushed to get our order in. No offer for appetizer, no offer for more wine. Food came out one thing at a time. My husbands food was cold, I didn't get my potato until i was half finished with my meal all of this after getting it 50 min after ordering. Very poor presentation. Food looked stale.
I don't think we will be recommending it others or going back again. I think I and get two pieces of fish and a baked potato almost anywhere for $34.00
Unfortunately, on Valentine's Day Prime 93 was sorely overbooked and understaffed. Martinis and sauerkraut balls were great, but when an hour and 15 minutes later our entrees had not yet been served, we tossed money on the table and left the restaurant. We were not the only diners we saw leave unhappy. Have enjoyed Prime 93 in the past but won't go again on any "holiday".
Took my girlfriend here on Valentine's Day. The restaurant was highly recommended by my sister's boyfriend who has lived in the area his whole life. When we got there and sat at our table, it took 15 minutes for anyone to acknowledge that we were there. Once we were helped, it took 30 mins to get our appetizer and over a hour to get our food. Once we got our food, my $60 meal was cold. I could tell that the plate was sitting under the warmer lights because my plate was so hot that I wasn't able to touch it. It was just a bad experience all around. It seemed like Prime 93 was not prepared for a Valentine's Day rush on a Tuesday night.
In the end, my meal was taken care of. My sister was thinking about having her wedding reception there. Will definitely be sharing my experience with her. Do not think I will be visiting Prime 93 in the near future.
Went here for Valentine's Day dinner. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. (Not always the case with some restaurants.) There was a soft piano playing for entertainment, but we were seated in a different room. The sounds traveled, but I would have preferred to be closer. The waitress was extremely nice, but also extremely disorganized and forgetful. We had to remind her to bring us water, remind her to bring us drinks after we had ordered them, and she disappeared for awhile during the meal. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and answered our questions, but just not organized. But when the food finally came, it was delicious! I had a perfectly done and seasoned NY Strip and my wife had the Champagne Chicken. Both of us enjoyed our meal immensely. We will definitely be back! I'd like to try the outdoor patio in the summer.
Its just one of those little gems. Its a great place to have a date, meet friends, or just stop in for a drink and some music. In good weather the outdoor patio is one of my favorites.
This time we had a new waitress in training. It was fun, and she was a blast to talk with and a joy to be served.
Prime 93 is one of our favorite restaurants. We've traveled the world, and their prime rib can't be beat. The sour dough rolls and bean salad can be a meal itself. I recommend sitting in the bar area to enjoy the fireplace, romantic ambiance, and live music.
Server was very good. Out of the 4 of us the food we had was OK. Everyone had steak. The meat from all 4 meals was a little dry and gristly. Two dinners were the baked steak for 14 dollars we got a salad and meat, a spoonful of mashed potatoes would have been nice. I think overall the prices were a little high.
For the price of the meals I would expect impeccable service and upscale environment. To keep this short -The food was definitely good but not presented well. But the rest was below par .
Having people coming into dining area in jeans and t shirt and tennis shoes to sit at the bar . Is not an upscale environment/ atmosphere! Our server was average at best.
We had a couple questions about what comes with the meal and she didn't know and gave an excuse that the menu has been changed. Well for the price of this meal she should take the time to know the menu. But the worst of it was, after the meal was delivered the server never came back, I had finished my glass of wine a good 10 minutes before I had to ask another server to find our server. I hate that!
The food can be out of this world good , but if the rest of the dining experience is bad, the quality of the food can't make up for poor service.
There are MANY upscale restaurants in our area that charge less but have exquisite meals and have impeccable service year in and year out! Simply put I wouldn't recommend it because it is priced too high for what you get.
First we were seated at a table in the bar area. The guitar player/singer was so loud we couldn't hear each other. We were moved to another room. Server was sort of disinterested, but ok. The food for the four of us was below average. Prime rib was poor....tough and no flavor. (Ordered rare). Chicken and pasta was awful...breading was doughy and pasta (mushroom and spinach sauce) was overwhelmed by lemon. Chicken parmesan was "ok" and walleye was not great. Wine offerings by the glass were minimal. The four of us will not return.
We have gone to this location for almost 30 years, from back when it was Anthe's. We always ask to be seated with Claudia, she is a phenomenal waitress, and remembers our likes even when we haven't been there for awhile. It was just the two of us this time and the meal was wonderful. This remains one of my favorite places to dine.
My husband and I usually enjoy going here but our last visit wasn't so great. We took a close friend here for her birthday. We had a long wait time on food, one appetizer was burnt. My husband steak was raw. There was also a weird smell coming from the lobby, I believe the carpets are in need of a good cleaning. They did remove the burnt appetizer from our bill but was a very disappointing evening indeed!
My husband and I rarely visit the same restaurant twice. We have been here several times, each entrée is better than the last. They start with fresh breads and a delicate, delicious bean salad. My husband ordered the meatball and ricotta appetizer, his dinner entrée was sirloin steak with cheddar and bacon mashed potatoes and grilled zucchini and summer squash, served with a salad. I ordered the brazed beef ribs with wild mushrooms, sweet peas and truffle oil served over pasta. What an amazing flavor combination. We had lots to take home since the portions are so generous.
From the moment we entered the restaurant, the service was dithering and not very nice and that never changed. Granted, we were 15 minutes late for our reservation, but the restaurant was not full, or even close. Our waitress gave us water glasses and salads swimming in dressing (so gross and not hard to see, those should not have been set on the table if the server was blind enough to fill them in the first place) after it took at least 30 minutes to take our order.
It took an hour at least to get our food. My husband ordered mushrooms and onions for an extra $4. for his steak, at about $1.25 a per morsel of the tiny amount.
He was afraid to mention it at that point since we did need to leave at some point and he wanted it to accompany warm food.
The chef (?) served our food and said that people filled up on bread and salad so often!
With service like that, I can see why.
This seems poorly managed to me and it is a shame.
The food was fine once we got it, but the overall experience was bad.
My hubby and I went here for a nice Friday night date. The place looks fairly run down from the outside and the inside is pretty dated. All this is a ok if the food and drink are good. Our waitress was nice. We waited forever for her to take our order... I had nearly finished my first martini. We ordered calamari for an appetizer. It desperately needed salt... but was ok after that. .. I've had better but also had worse. Our order was finally taken. I ordered the champagne chicken and the hubs ordered veal parm. One word about the meun... the menu that is on this website is not the same menu that the serve in house.. probably 1/2 of what's in this website is actually on the menu. So with dinner I had a wedge salad and my man got the tossed salad. Both were ok.... the croutons were actually the nest I've ever had but my salad was LOADED with Blue cheese, I mean to the point that it was very off putting. Both our Entrées needed salt. We didn't order dessert. So the waitress brings the check and I pay. She comes back with my card and the receipt. .. what bothered me the most about the while experience. . After I signed the bill she came and got it.. then looked at it and took it to the hostess who was holding our check as we walked out. It was almost like they thought we were trying to skip on the check or something. ........ anyway, all in all, we won't be back. There are way better options in the area!
The atmosphere is very relaxing and calming, almost romantic. The food was ok. The Frutti De Mare was missing something but couldn't figure out what it was, the flavor just wasn't there. The prime rib on the other hand had a good flavor to it and was worth the price. It did take a long time for our entree's (over an hour from the time we sat down). Not sure if it's their custom to take an appetizer order first then take a food order after the app has come out but thought it was odd. All in all we will give it another chance. Server was attentive to our needs.
My wife and I had heard about this place, so we thought we'd splurge a little for a fancy meal. We arrived early (5:30 pm) and were able to order off the Early Bird Menu.
The draft beer was cold but was put into a warm glass, so it turned warm quickly. We ordered the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer. While the shrimp were a good size, it was difficult seeing how they could charge $14 for 6 shrimp. Our waitress must have been new, because she didn't know much about the menu.
For dinner I ordered the broasted chicken with mashed potatoes, and my wife had the Scrod with fries. My chicken was very hot, and my potatoes were very cold. My wife's scrod was delicious, but her fries were cold and very greasy. They must have just dumped the bottom of the fryer basket on her plate as she had about 20 over-fried little balls of whatever on her plate.
While we were seated off to the side in a nice dining area, it was open to the bar area which was very loud. The noise from there made us feel as if we were in the bar and drew our attention away from our "quiet" dinner.
All in all, it was not worth the $60 price tag. We've had better meals at Bob Evans at less than half that price. I doubt very much we'll be going back.
