    I am a frequent guest at Prime, usually Prime 112. I decided to book for my boyfriends birthday. Unfortunately the food was very greasy. The lobster Mac drenched in grease, the steaks also drowning in grease. I ordered a medium filet and got well cooked— had to send it back. The waiter was attentive and polite. Maybe it was just a bad night, usually it’s good but that night was absolutely sub par.

    Everything was amazing. Only issue is I wish we had been sat in a different table that was not right by the door, it was hot and they kept opening it often.

    Food is amazing here but you also need to order smart, portions are very large so as an example this ricotta and sausage stuffed brick oven meatball with the angel hair dinner portion is enough to feed three people easily

    Went for Miami Spice Menu. Food was good, ambiance was great service was EXCELLENT!!! Drinks were awesome - dirty Martini. We sat by the door and the heat from outside just kept coming in each time someone came in. Maybe move that table. It was a little unpleasant and took away from the overall experience.

    Condescending management and host staff. Had a reservation for two got there before my guest and was told they could not seat me until my whole party arrived. They have a “policy” they only take an order once from a table,and then they tried to squeeze us into a banquet table where two parties adjacent were literally touching our table. A party of two ahead of us also declined to sit there. Manager was indifferent as were hostesses. We wound up sitting outside sweating over our meal. There is a genuine lack of hospitality and sincerity for customer service,I am a local and will think twice before I dine here again

    Not a place you'd enjoy for an intimate setting. It's way too loud because they crammed too many tables inside the restaurant. Probably will have a better experience if you can handle the Miami evening heat and sit outside.

    Came here with a friend and it was very good. Our waitress was great and so was the food. However, my friend has several allergies and couldn’t eat an exact dish that was on the menu. She asked the waitress if it would be possible to get gluten free pasta and add some things to it. As I said the food was very good, but the bill came and the price of her pasta was $51. I think that is absolutely outrageous and there could’ve been some warning. Keep in mind I got the orecchiette with Kobe meatballs and broccoli rabe and that’s $36, she got GF pasta with grilled chicken and broccoli rabe. Idk where the $15 difference comes in but I think that is absolutely outrageous.

    So disappointed! I have been bragging about this restaurant for years to my family. Finally, on my mother’s birthday vacation, we dined at the restaurant. The marinara sauce was not the same. It was watery and sweet with no flavor. Pre-pandemic the sauce was thick, savory, and delicious. The bread was lukewarm and the cheese inside was different, not the gooey goodness from before. The sea bass lacked flavor as well. The Kobe meatball spaghetti had the same bland sauce so it wasn’t as good either. The meatball was tender and moist like I recall, but a real bummer the sauce was terrible. The chicken parmigiana was mainly bread with very little chicken. I told the waiter about the changes in the food and he apologized and told us he would let the manager know. However, the manager never came to our table, terrible management inaction. I would have liked to inform him about the lack of quality in the food. There wasn’t a lot of people dining like days of the past, which is an indication of the decline in the food. Prime 112 was packed across the street so the day of the week is not an excuse, it’s the food. Also, the restaurant did not acknowledge my mother’s birthday, unacceptable! Due to all of the above, Prime Italian has lost long-standing customers and I will not brag about this restaurant anymore. It’s a shame, my friends were excited to try it next month when vacationing. In the past, I loved Prime Fish, but now I’m hesitant to take my family, maybe it has declined too.

    I’ve had dinner at Prime 112 but Prime Italian was a whole new experience. The crab stuffed Ravioli with Lobster and Caviar was to die for. I definitely will be back on my next visit to Miami.

    For what you are going to pay, it definitely wasn't the most impressive meal I've had. The meatball was great but the spaghetti below it left a lot to be desired. My filet mignon was supposed to be medium rare but it was medium inside and the outside was straight up chewy. The salad could have used less quantity and more quality. Delicious fried Oreo, but they have those at carnivals right? Good drinks. Perhaps it just wasn't those nights for it to come together, but it didn't seem super busy. Good date ambiance regardless, quiet and personal which in the end was the main upside. Maybe check it out for a couple drinks and a shared plate before going for a full meal.

    Phenomenal service by Jackie and her team. Dude from Guatemala was so attentive and humble. Tomato and mozzarella salad is a must for appetizer. Did the chicken parm, baked rigatoni combo. Unreal! Recommend sitting on the patio.
